The Civil War Sesquicentennial

Robert H. Moore over at Cenantua's Blog writes in his own words, "As a Southerner and native of the Shenandoah Valley, I reflect on the Civil War-era South… and sometimes a little more. But… expect the unexpected."

This past week Robert has been posting a number of interesting articles on the 150th anniversary of the outbreak of the Civil War. He quotes extensively from those who were there in Virginia at the time, and in these eye witness accounts of the time, demonstrates the diversity and differences of opinion in Virginia in regard to the issue of succession. I am finding this series pretty compelling reading and highly recommend it. (See link above for Cenantua;s Blog.)
