Pub. Date:
Williams (Valdosta State U.) maintains that the Confederacy lost the Civil War not because of the supremacy of the Union army, but because there were bitter philosophical, social and political divisions within the South. The author shows how a class war was created when wealthy land owners exempted themselves from the draft, and Native Americans in the South opposed the Confederacy and set out to sabotage the efforts of the rebels. Written in an accessible style for history buffs and general audiences, this book emphasizes how the Confederacy was doomed to failure before the war began due to a profound lack of unity.
