"A Late Encounter with the Enemy" is the only story in which Flannery O'Connor deals with the theme of the Civil War. The story describes Sally Poker Sash, an about-to-be college graduate of 62, whose greatest desire is to get her grandfather Major George Poker Sash on stage at her graduation ceremony. George, renamed General Tennessee Flintlock Sash at the premier of Gone with the Wind twelve years ago, is a 104-year-old survivor of the Civil War. He is barely in his senses and can't remember much of the past, but knows that he likes pretty girls and parades. In this story O'Connor seems to point out the Southerners' consciousness of differentiation as their consciousness left unconstructed even about ninety years after the Civil War. In O'Connor's eyes, as an individual's identity built on difference is false, so is the identity of the South built on difference. To build a true human society, O'Connor calls us for the importance of getting eyes to see God's mystery intruding into the moment of history as the crossroad where time, place and eternity meet, and of crossing out our consciousness of differentiation.
