Book Summary:

"While in the short term--militarily--the North won the Civil War, in the long term--ideologically--victory went to the South. The continual expansion of the Western frontier allowed a Southern oligarchic ideology to find a new home and take root. Even with the abolition of slavery and the equalizing power of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, and the ostensible equalizing of economic opportunity afforded by Western expansion, anti-democratic practices were deeply embedded in the country's foundations, in which the rhetoric of equality struggled against the power of money. As the settlers from the East pushed into the West, so too did all of its hierarchies, reinforced by the seizure of Mexican lands at the end of the Mexican-American War and violence toward Native Americans. Both the South and the West depended on extractive industries--cotton in the former and mining and oil in the latter--giving rise to the creation of a white business elite"--

Book Summary:

Could the South have won the Civil War? To many, the very question seems absurd. After all, the Confederacy had only a third of the population and one-eleventh of the industry of the North. Wasn’t the South’s defeat inevitable? Not at all, as acclaimed military historian Bevin Alexander reveals in this provocative and counterintuitive new look at the Civil War. In fact, the South most definitely could have won the war, and Alexander documents exactly how a Confederate victory could have come about—and how close it came to happening. Moving beyond fanciful theoretical conjectures to explore actual plans that Confederate generals proposed and the tactics ultimately adopted in the war’s key battles, How the South Could Have Won the Civil War offers surprising analysis on topics such as: •How the Confederacy had its greatest chance to win the war just three months into the fighting—but blew it •How the Confederacy’s three most important leaders—President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson—clashed over how to fight the war •How the Civil War’s decisive turning point came in a battle that the Rebel army never needed to fight •How the Confederate army devised—but never fully exploited—a way to negate the Union’s huge advantages in manpower and weaponry •How Abraham Lincoln and other Northern leaders understood the Union’s true vulnerability better than the Confederacy’s top leaders did •How it is a myth that the Union army’s accidental discovery of Lee’s order of battle doomed the South’s 1862 Maryland campaign •How the South failed to heed the important lessons of its 1863 victory at Chancellorsville How the South Could Have Won the Civil War shows why there is nothing inevitable about military victory, even for a state with overwhelming strength. Alexander provides a startling account of how a relatively small number of tactical and strategic mistakes cost the South the war—and changed the course of history.

Book Summary:

Just a touch here and a tweak there . . . . MacKinlay Kantor, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, master storyteller, shows us how the South could have won the Civil War, how two small shifts in history (as we know it) in the summer of 1863 could have turned the tide for the Confederacy. What would have happened: to the Union, to Abraham Lincoln, to the people of the North and South, to the world? If the South Had Won the Civil War originally appeared in Look Magazine nearly half a century ago. It immediately inspired a deluge of letters and telegrams from astonished readers and became an American classic overnight. Published in book form soon after, Kantor's masterpiece has been unavailable for a decade. Now, this much requested classic is once again available for a new generation of readers and features a stunning cover by acclaimed Civil War artist Don Troiani, a new introduction by award-winning alternate history author Harry Turtledove, and fifteen superb illustrations by the incomparable Dan Nance. It all begins on that fateful afternoon of Tuesday, May 12, 1863, when a deplorable equestrian accident claims the life of General Ulysses S. Grant . . . . At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Book Summary:

This book turns the world upside down. It will change the way you read American history. Conservative & aristocratic economic ideals motivated the founders of the British Empire who transplanted their plantation economics from Barbados to South Carolina in 1670. By 1771, 9 of the 10 richest men in the American Colonies were Charlestonians. South Carolina, birthplace of Andrew Jackson & John Calhoun, "The Marx of the Master Class," is the pituitary gland of the American political system & "dissolved" the union in 1860, leading to the Civil War. Unreconstructed Southerners finally regained power with the Truman Doctrine & the Cold War's state of siege at the end of WWII. Along the way they Texified the west, subducted California into a southern state, while the Fraud of 1876 restored state rights & white supremacy in the South. The Roosevelt imperialists in the Spanish-American War revived the empire & put colonies into the pre-Civil War "Southern Dreams of a Caribbean Empire." Goldwater reconnected the Neo-Confederate Republican west with South Carolina. Five of the 6 things the South fought for are public policy. It's been 130 years since Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox. It is time to declare a Confederate victory. To order by credit card: 1-800-285-4929. Ext. 20. Tsunami Inc., P.O.

Book Summary:

The American Civil War (also known by other names) was a civil war in the United States from 1861 to 1865, fought between northern states loyal to the Union and southern states that had seceded to form the Confederate States of America. It is commonly stated history is written by the victor and the American Revolution is no exception. As a result of the rebel triumph in the War for Independence, loyalists historically have been placed in a negative light. In countless works and popular culture, loyalists have been portrayed as inept people whose blind faith in the English crown led to their downfall. Unfortunately, such an erroneous stereotype only trivializes the struggles of the American loyalist

Book Summary:

How the South Won the Civil War discusses politics from the end of the war in 1865, to abolishing slavery during Reconstruction in the ten years that followed, to today's mess in Washington, with approval ratings for Congress at one of the lowest levels ever. In 1875, when Republican governors went back to their homes in the North, the eleven Confederate states elected Democrat governors and legislatures. Each state then passed "Jim Crow" laws, virtually stopping any progress that black Americans had made, and forced segregation policies on them for the next 75 years. This insightful book examines the consequences of Democrat politics, its effects on blacks and Hispanics, and the political and religious leaders of these two groups. The book also explains the composition of minority groups within the Democrat Party, as well as union membership, to point out how majority rule is often overruled by various minority groups sticking together on issues that the majority might not want. How the South Won the Civil War discusses the failings of journalists and Congress in not dealing with these issues, and concludes with how our education system over the past 60 years has contributed to the problems we face today.

Book Summary:

WHY THE SOUTH LOST What led to the downfall of the Confederacy? The distinguished professors of history represented in this volume examine the following crucial factors in the South’s defeat: ECONOMIC—RICHARD N. CURRENT of the University of Wisconsin attributes the victory of the North to fundamental economic superiority so great that the civilian resources of the South were dissipated under the conditions of war. MILITARY—T. HARRY WILLIAMS of Louisiana State University cites the deficiencies of Confederate strategy and military leadership, evaluating the influence on both sides of Baron Jomini, a 19th-century strategist who stressed position warfare and a rapid tactical offensive. DIPLOMATIC—NORMAN A. GRAERNER of the University of Illinois holds that the basic reason England and France decided not to intervene on the side of the South was simply that to have done so would have violated the general principle of non-intervention to which they were committed. SOCIAL—DAVID DONALD of Columbia University offers the intriguing thesis that an excess of Southern democracy killed the Confederacy. From the ordinary man in the ranks to Jefferson Davis himself, too much emphasis was placed on individual freedom and not enough on military discipline. POLITICAL—DAVID M. POTTER of Stanford University suggests that the deficiencies of President Davis as a civil and military leader turner the balance, and that the South suffered from the lack of a second well-organized political party to force its leadership into competence.
