Jubal Early's Lost Cause

Historical Blindness show

Summary: As a bit of a warning for any Southern patrons, I tackle some major myths in Southern and Civil War history in this episode, and there is the possibility it may offend those who embrace those myths. Please listen with an open mind and check out the sources I mention (plus, when the episode is released on the website on Tuesday, you'll find the books linked in the reading list and as always you'll find links to sources in the text of the blog post). In no way am I attempting to denigrate an entire region or culture, nor am I suggesting that Southerners shouldn't love their home states or take pride in their heritage. Rather, I am encouraging listeners, as always, to question received history.
