RE-FIGHTING THE CIVIL WAR? FROM MY MUSINGS TO YOURS!
My book, Civil War Musings and Reflections: Blogging about the “American Iliad,” is now available for pre-order as an e-book at my amazon.com author’s page, along with my other books. The paperback version should be available in a few days.
Utilizing our enforced stay-at-home existence, I organized in the book many of my blogs about the war into a variety of themes. But the first item, about the issue of what to do about Confederate monuments, sets the overall theme. It is an appeal for the Civil War community to find common ground. It uses as an example the people of Franklin, Tennessee, who , while not removing the statue of a Confederate soldier on their public square, agreed on placing a variety of plaques there which explain and “contextualize” (the new term for such actions) what happened there during the war.
Other items range from discussing strategy and tactics to the role of pets for the Civil War soldier. All of them are designed to make the reader muse and reflect, just as I have. Enjoy!
