The author lays out his case and backs it up very well. While I did not agree with every single thing he said, I have no doubt that his viewpoint is well justified and on a better foundation than my own.
Once again, Gary Gallagher has challenged me to think twice about whether history is based in fact or opinion.
This is a great book for anyone who is interested in the American Civil War.
This book discusses the many different way to look at civil war in events. I found it interesting but also a little deep. Of the Gary Gallagher lectures I have listened to I found this one the most tedious. I speed through the last two chapters getting the just of the matter. I Gus's we all like the south because they where the underdog. As most paintings sold depict southern generals. I would like to see Gary do a lecture about Ulysses S Grant.
I have the feeling this man is much maligned in the lexicon of lititure.
I am glad this book was short.
