During the last three months I had a book to read each week for class and ended up not being able to read for fun. One book may not seem like much but I then had to write a 5-page paper on it and be ready to discuss it in class a bit stressful to say the least. I ended up with a list of books that I wanted to read but didnt have time to and now getting around to them.




While Ive read a few books already, this one has been the most interesting. The Myth of the Lost Cause: Why the South Fought the Civil War and Why the North Won by Edward H. Bonekemper III looks at the Lost Cause at a granularly level, separating it into chunks and sub chunks and dissects it to show just how false it is. Using a combination of source material, Lost Cause history and contemporary studies he does a remarkable job presenting the truth for those brave enough to accept it.

Reading the reviews can be sad and funny at the same time and the author has responded to a few of them such as this one
