Editor’s Note: This is a work in progress.
George Rable is the author of Damn Yankees! Demonization and Defiance in the Confederate South. I’ve ordered this book, but I haven’t read it yet. I only discovered it last night while reading Elizabeth Varon’s new book Armies of Deliverance: A New History of the Civil War.
Note: Nothing interesting is really going on in American politics. The Democrats and Republicans are currently exchanging fire over who is the bigger racist and anti-Semite and appear set to nominate two Boomers neither of whom will do anything after the 2020 election. It’s a good time to catch up on history, philosophy, religion, health and fitness and other interesting topics.
