 Today you hear different things about the Confederate States of America. You can hear different historical interpretations or perspectives. You can hear opposing arguments as to which side was right. Some say it was about slavery, some say it was about states’ rights. Others debate that Abraham Lincoln was the greatest president because of how he tended to what he called a civil war. And the rhetoric goes on and on. For more than one hundred and fifty years, people have sought to describe, define, and even infer ideas on the South and its culture. But it doesn’t take long for a Southerner to become frustrated, exhausted and even offended by the distortions of an outsiders truth or view of Dixie. In The Nation In Gray, each chapter is a lecture that I have presented and my hope is that the culture of the Confederacy will be seen and the fuller history be given.
