    I found the only review of the book to be interesting. It was the typical response given to any work by a historian that doesn’t follow the Lost Cause narrative. That in itself seems to be the standard badge of validity for any historian writing on the Civil War. If it pisses off the Causers, you’re doing it right.

      I found several reviews, and they were mixed. Regardless, I’m looking forward to his presentation.
