Battalion,

So?

A prominent Lost Cause advocacy web site gives significant band-width to a person with Lost Cause sympathies to rant against a book and author who writes how the Lost Cause came about.

Why does it seem to have any more significance than the numerous other such articles at this site and pike your interest enough to post it here?

My Myth or Yours?..........

After all, it is only a polemical essay, 'about' Nolan's historical views..

Just for the heck of it, another historian's opinion:

"To the old Union they had said that the Federal power had no authority to interfere with slavery issues in a state. To their new nation they would declare that the state had no power to interfere with a federal protection of slavery. Of all the many testimonials to the fact that slavery, and not states rights, really lay at the heart of their movement, this was the most eloquent of all."
William C. Davis, Look Away: A History of the Confederate States of America, pages 97-98

Regards,
Tim

Who else does Battalion have to quote (outside of newspaper editorials) that support any of his myths?
