Fantastic analysis of the Confederacy and Slavery
"Why Liberals Are Right to Refuse to Honor the Confederacy" by Carl M. Cannon is a great analysis of the relationship between the Southern Confederacy and slavery. Cannon examines how partisans of the Old South have managed to craft a myth of the South that somehow ignores slavery's central role in the creation of the Confederacy and the outbreak of the American Civil War. "Why Liberals Are Right to Refuse to Honor the Confederacy" is a must read.
