Cody,

Amazon requested that I submit a review of your book today, which I purchased in the Kindle version. I was pleased to submit the below, which will post in a few days...so they say.

I also gave a well-deserved nod and hopeful boost for CWT, as a place for "thoughtful" debate. :smile:

I disagree with your premise, given how many sources and quotes I've seen that go beyond slavery, but the price is right. I'll give your book a read and offer some feedback when I'm done (though I've already spotted a couple of errors in your timeline for your next revision: It was South Carolina that seceded on December 20, 1860, not North Carolina, and Lee surrendered in 1865, not 1864.)

First off, before I critique, let me say that my hat's off to anyone who's had a book published. I hope to do that myself one day.

When it comes to the contents of the book, I'll be honest, it's much the same list of quotes from Lincoln, from the declarations by the various states, and from Alexander Stephens that we often see. It's very familiar material to me at this point, but then I'm probably not the intended audience. And I would point out that the charges that Lee whipped his slaves, which you reference, were published during Lee's lifetime, both before and after the war, and he always denied that they were true. It hardly seems fair to Lee not to give his side. The same with all your quotes. There are opposing viewpoints and other documents by some of the same secessionists that give a different point of view. And there's more to the Confederate constitution than just additions related to slavery.

You did not convince me of your position, but I don't begrudge you the attempt. :smile: Again, congratulations on your books.

Thank you. And thanks for catching those mistakes. I know better than that! I fixed them. I appreciate you taking the time to read it.

I hope you give the novel a try. I don't make any such argument in it. I have heroes on both sides. The historical parts are well researched, although with the stupid mistakes like you caught, I'm a little nervous.

I'll haven't read much historical fiction, but I'll certainly try out your novel.
