Summary This volume investigates the ties in the United States; South among citizens to the American Civil War that ended more than 130 years previously. The author reports on contemporary attitudes on the Civil War and how it is discussed and taught, as well as attitudes about race. Written in the form of dispatches posted at varying times, it recounts the author's Civil War explorations in the South. Some of his encounters are humorous, but many open a window into the tragic state of the US's chasmic divisions.
