"The former Confederate states have continually mythologized the South's defeat to the North, depicting the Civil War as unnecessary, or as a fight over states' Constitutional rights, or as a David v. Goliath struggle in which the North waged 'total war' over an underdog South. In The Myth of the Lost Cause, historian Edward Bonekemper deconstructs this multi-faceted myth, revealing the truth about the war that nearly tore the nation apart 150 years ago"-- Provided by publisher.

After reading, statistical analysis and talking to people who lived during the civil war one should realize that the war was hysteria fed by corporate industrial concerns . The crazy war that brought us the "gilded age."
