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.

Looks like another attempt to absolve the North of its guilt for having overthrown the Constitution and republic it underpinned.
Judging by her biography and the bibliography of books she’s written, Elizabeth Varon is another academic squarely in the mould of Eric Foner and Kevin Levin.
