  1. Congratulations on a meaningful, well written dissection of the true causes of our great terrible Civil War, now 150 years past As a native South Carolinian with Confederate ancestors and an almost lifetime citizen of the state of Texas, it has taken a long time for me to accept the real truth Even after sixty years of reading about that conflict, for me, it took the outrageous greed and disdain for their fellow beings displayed by the Wall Street bankers, corporate executives and their minions, [...]


  2. As a student of military history I am continually fascinated by two particular conflicts in our history, World War II and the Civil War I enjoy reading, watching, and studying commentaries on those two struggles At this focal point in the 150 years since the battle of Gettysburg, I found myself reading David Von Drehle s review Why They Fought The Real Reason for the Civil War.Having seen Ken Burns excellent documentary on DVD, this article reminds us of the origins that led to the focal point i [...]


  3. I read this article because I have had several discussion with people about the causes of the Civil War and have always been amazed by the number that still cling to the Lost Cause narrative This is a belief that is common even with those that do not sympathize wtih the Confederacy The author does a great job of condensing down the main resons for the cause of the war in a way that can be understood and is hard to dispute I especially like the parts where he explained what the motivations of Uni [...]


  4. I like this, in that it breaks down the reasons that the various people in the war actually went to war The interests for which they put their lives on the line are not their own they never are I think that the thinking person should view this as a cautionary tale it is easy, even here in America, to get swept up in tides that offer no benefit to those who die It is wonderful that the slaves were freed it is beautiful to think of someone sacrificing their life for this In reality, lots of northe [...]


  5. this is a fine article, concise and crisply written, grounded in excellent research the insidious myth of the lost cause has given us as much grief as the war itself today we face the same kind of conflict between the comforting ideology that allows us to keep on doing what we re doing, however destructive, and the cold reality that requires us to change so this essay is useful beyond its topic.


  6. Denial is a lie al There are none so blind as those who will not, cannot, do not want, to see This text is about seeing with the same clarity as John Brown a man whose moral clarity on this issue is, as yet, unmatched.


  7. From my childhood I can remember a book of photographs of the American Civil War by Mathew Brady, train tracks ripped apart, soldier s bodies stacked in piles taller than a man This short book, or long article, seeks to explain why a country tore itself apart and touches on the subsequent attempts to reinterpret history.The basic thesis is that the civil war was entirely about slavery, although it could equally be argued that it was a war over whether there should be a single United States or a [...]


  8. Although this is a well written book and an interesting read I have only given it three stars because it does not do what it says on the tin When I came to the end of the book I still did not know the the real reason for the civil war It seems a combination of causes and no real reason In spite ofthat it was a good read.
