Our Review

Two historians present highly original treatment of statesmen and  writers  who are forgotten or misinterpreted in American history.  These  include  Southern  figures  James Jackson, John Taylor, John C. Calhoun, the Bayard family of Delaware, John Tyler, Abel P. Upshur, William Faulkner, Sam Ervin, and M.E. Bradford.  There is also interesting treatment of Northerners who sympathized with the South like Condy Raguet and James Fenimore Cooper,  as well as other Northern conservatives.
