New to the Civil War Memory Library, 02/28

Update: The book blurbs are beginning to come in for Searching for Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth. I am honored to have Professor Brundage write in support of this project:

“When parents discover that their school children are learning about black Confederates, when history buffs read a display at a historic site that celebrates black Confederates, and when undergraduates encounter hagiographies of black Confederates online, they will now have a rigorous and trustworthy resource at their disposal to dismantle this dangerous and corrosive distortion of history.” — W. Fitzhugh Brundage, author of Civil Torture: An American Tradition, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
