In case y'all haven't noticed, the South has risen again and, in celebration of that event, we bring you The Girls of the New South. The girl in the Confederate cap is also this month's Playmate, Lisa Sohm. She was shot by Staff Photographer Dwight Hooker, a distant relative of General Joseph Hooker, the Union general, who allegedly had such a relaxed attitude toward ladies of the night that his last name became synonymous with ... well, you know. That concludes this month's apocryphal history lesson.
