Dr. McCurry tells a very different tale of the Confederacy in her award-winning book, Confederate Reckoning. Southern statesmen and generals built the most powerful slave regime in the western world, but by excluding the majority of their own people – white women and slaves – they sowed the seeds of their own demise. This book explores the political battle in which women and slaves helped to decide the fate of the Confederacy.... and ultimately the outcome of the Civil War.
Join Dr. McCurry in a discussion of this critical time in our history. Free. (562) 570-7500.
