Dimitri offers some observations about Drew Faust’s latest study "in terms of the broader culture in which it appears…" I don’t know what this is supposed to mean, but if he ever gets around to actually critiquing Faust’s argument let me know. Oh…and don’t miss the ultimate anti-Gallagher/McPherson rant. This one is a true classic.

"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."
