332 WILEY, BELL IRVIN; ESCOTT, PAUL D. (NEW INTRODUCTION). The Plain People Of The Confederacy.

A book that broke new gound by challenging southern myths about a contented and loyal slave population, a self-sacrificing citizenry united in support of states' rights, and a military unmarred by cowardice and vice. Unearthing a wealth of correspondence, government documents, and other firsthand accounts, Wiley has brought to center stage the question of popular morale and insisted on its importance in shaping the fate of the Confederacy. This book shows that the Confederacy was racked by dissension and that the heart of the South's problems lay in class resentments and poor governmental policy rather than in military reverses.
