Check out this thoughtful “teaser” essay by Keith Harris of Cosmic America about the pluses and a pretty big minus of David Blight’s seminal Civil War memory study Race and Reunion. Hat tip to Kevin Levin for pointing this out.
I’ve added Keith to the blogroll – he’ll show up next time I update the page. He has some great stuff up and uses some unique angles of approach, so check it out. I like his style – sort of the Anthony Bourdain of the Civil War blogosphere.
