The author spends most of his time making claims about falsehoods maintained by a northern perspective on the civil war but unfortunately provides very few historical examples. This feels more like an hour long rant than a strong case for historical inaccuracies. I was hoping for more facts and examples.

Absolute hogwash and ignorance! This literary work distorts the true essence of what happened and why.
It is a detestable, pseudo-intellectual, and lame attempt to explain away the immoral depravity of the southern desire to hold, abuse, exploit, rape, and dsstroy slaves (mentally, socially, culturally, economically, and even physically). No amount of twisted rationale to make a case for pride in all the above is right, righteous, or commendable. The southern system as it was needed to cease immediately. To this very day, the damaging reprocusions and ideologies of that southern culture as it relates to minorities, especially African-Americans, still aids, abetts, and proliferates hatred and systematic & undercover discrimination.
As for the book's literary style and the performance of the narrator apart from the content as spoken to above, it was well written. The author made his cases, though disillusioned, very clearly and concisely. I enjoyed listening to this book and getting a peek inside the mind of one who more or less defends the southern culture of old.
