Our Civil War History Transition


For John, BLUF.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



The Wall Street Journal provided, over the weekend, had an opinion piece by a Dr. William C Davis, who was formerly the Executive Director of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech. He is an historian of the US Civil War and Southern history.  In January of this year his book Crucible of Command:  Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee—The War They Fought, the Peace They Forged was published.  The OpEd is about history and memory and is titled "The Right Way to Remember the Confederacy".  The argument from Dr Davis is that "The indelibly tainted battle flag came down in South Carolina, but in context, other Confederate monuments can help teach history for all Americans."

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
