The production of this video has nothing directly to do with the SCV's proposed statue of Jefferson Davis and Jim Limber, but the overall message beautifully captures their motivation. This has nothing to do with trying to nail down a complicated piece of history; rather, it is an attempt to reshape how we think about the connection between slavery, race, and the history of the Confederacy.

"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."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
