The magazine was known for its literary contributions, with poetry being the most popular genre. Many local poets had their work published in The Land We Love, and the magazine also featured articles on Southern history, culture, and politics. It was sold by subscription only and had a large readership among Confederate veterans and other Southerners who were interested in Southern history and literature.

The Land We Love was originally published monthly, but it shifted to a bi-monthly publication schedule in 1871 due to financial difficulties. The magazine was known for its pro-Southern sentiment and for its promotion of Southern literature. Its poetry and articles often reflected a nostalgic and romanticized view of the antebellum period and the Southern cause.

In 1877, The Land We Love ceased publication due to financial difficulties and declining interest. However, the magazine played an important role in the development of Southern literature and culture during its run, and today it is remembered as an important document in Southern literary history.{{Categories}}
