“History tells us the North decisively won the Civil War, but in ‘How the South Won the Civil War,’ Maine-based historian Heather Cox Richardson argues cogently and perceptively that the ideals and values of the Old South actually prevailed and define the country to this day, continuing to tear us asunder. The book is fascinating, provocative, exciting to read, and explains so much of our current disarray.” — NANCY HARMON JENKINS, Camden
