Read all about it – No PC book here…

The Politically Incorrect Guide To The South, by H. W. Crocker III, and published by Regency Publishing Company, is one this Historian is interested in reading. Civil War News, states “…will not win any friends or accolades from those who see the war through the prism of the North.” and goes on to state the author used “evenhandedness” in regards to his eye on history. This looks to be a fun read and I, for one, am putting it on my “to read” list.

Good summer reading?
