Little Devil
Excellent book, especially for anyone wanting to understand why non-slaveholders would ultimately fight so hard in defense of a slave-society (the Confederacy).

Scholarly, but readable even without too much specialized knowledge.

Very happy with this purchase.

This book was required reading for my son's college class on the post-Civil-War reconstruction period. Purchasing it from this vendor via Amazon was a material savings over having my son buy it from his college bookstore. It came quickly, and in great condition. Can't ask for more.
