I thought this band stopped playing after a plane crash took the lives of most of the band members in the 1970s. All I can say is that if you think the band’s decision to remove the Confederate flag as a stage backdrop makes them any more or less southern then you, my friend, are an idiot. Don’t worry, you still have a guy from Michigan who will keep southern heritage alive. And that’s all I have to say ’bout that.

"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
