Antidote to an Excess of War Stories
In this book Professor Freehling offers the serious student of the most turbulent period of our history an alternative view of the Civil War. He treats the major battles of the war in the context of the southern reaction to that largest segment of the anit-Confederate South -- the black southerner-- and the hesitancy of the North to use this weapon against the loyal South. The title does not do complete justice to the book which shows how the 'Anti-Confederate Southerners' shaped the course of the Civil War in the North as well. A slender book, trimmed of unnecessary fat, but written in a narrative style that is typically Freehling.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
