Excellent scholarship and writing. Too bad most Americans today are too ignorant or brainwashed to take the truth to heart.

Good behind the scenes stories about the hardships loved ones had back home and how it affected the soldiers.

A collection of Mr. Ramsdell lectures, this modest sized account spotlights the problems within the Confederacy as a key to the eventual collapse of the CSA. Of interest is the fact that these ideas were first presented 50+ years ago, offering the reader a look back at the historical thought of the time (1937). Rather than dwell on now-tired themes of "big battles" or "the big man" approach, Ramsdell ponders the effect of the homefront as a key to failure of Southern Independence. With the families of the frontline soldiers suffering varying degrees of want, Ramsdell examines topics as varied as speculators, lack of salt (!), farms left unattended, and the Confederate monetary system as culprits in the demise of a unified Confederacy. Some charts, tables or such would have been helpful in presenting some of the information. Secondly, no sources or footnotes are offered!
