An eyge opening read on how the south itself was divided over secession.

I say that I'm done with this one, but I didn't actually get through it. The book is not horrible, nor is it poorly written, but everything else I have seems more interesting. I made it through about 185 pages, though, and can comment a bit. The title advertises itself as if there is discussion about conflicting opinions in the South, but the onlly thing discussed is Unionist sentiment. Now that's fine, but it's not what I thought I would get. I hoped for a good compare-contrast book, dissecting actual inner conflicts between Rebels and Unionists, but what I got was a decent study of anti-Confederate sects. Oh well.
