Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I am willing to bet that many of my readers have yet to think about what to do for that special person in their life. This year how about skipping the old flowers and dinner routine and go for something that will showcase your heritage. Let me suggest heading over to Proud Rebel: Confederate Merchandise for the perfect gift. If your love life is suffering Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to reignite it. Perhaps what you and your partner need is some inspiration from your favorite Confederate hero. These bed sheets are just what Doctor Ruth ordered. Now you can imagine yourself in bed not just with your partner, but with Lee, Jackson, Stuart and the rest of the boys. Sheets come in Twin, Queen, and King sizes. For those of you who would like to showcase your neo-Confederate princess for all the world to see how about a bathing suit? You can also purchase an even skimpier suit, but given that Civil War Memory is a family site I decided against showing it. For those of you looking for a more traditional gift may I suggest a choker. You can also purchase one with spikes. Buy two and you can put one on your dog. Obviously you don’t need a silly holiday to do something special for the person you care about the most. And in the end isn’t Valentine’s Day just the result of greedy northern businesses like Hallmark?

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
