    One thought on “The South Was Right!

    1. Deanne

      I very much appreciated the brothers Kennedy taking the time to write this excellent book! We have indeed been fed the 'Victors version' of history in regards to the "War for Southern Independence".This book caused me to reevaluate what I had been taught and what I had come to believe was the truth about that war of long ago. After reading the thought provoking comments from slaves of the south given after the end of the war, I realized that all was not as we were taught to believe. I even lived [...]

    2. Rodney Harter

      The book claims to have been well researched. There are too many distortions within the first 35 pages that I checked. Furthermore, one becomes highly skeptical of any supposed learned discussion that is fraught with hyperbole and name calling. Basically, the book is intellectually dishonest.

    3. Erik

      When I moved to South Carolina, I wanted to broaden my horizons and at least appreciate the Deep South's self-vision. All I got out of this book was a series of logical fallacies based on some historical and moral arguments that were more desperate justification than concrete proof.Before the southern masses jump down my throat, let me say that the South certainly had some reasoning in their decision to succeed: the greatest being a threat to their economic interests and what they perceived as t [...]

      There are not too many books that relate the "other side" of the story of the war between the states. confederates were not exclusively racists or slave owners, there were just as many of those types on both sides of the conflict. A fine rebuttal to the attack on southern culture that has been going on since the end of that unecessary war.

    5. Doug Hauser

      Changed the way that I looked at the Civil War drastically. That comes from a born and raised Yankee who agrees more with the South on states rights and voting requirements.

    6. Cindylou

      Excellent, well documented book. Some say that the language is a bit intemperate, but I have seen far more intemperate language in books by "respected" historians like Samuel Eliot Morrison (but that is alright because he says "politically correct" things.) Considering how much the South has been trashed by hypocritical Northern "historians" who cover up or excuse things like the fact that the sanctimonious New England "abolitionists" grew fat and rich on the slave trade(which they continued in [...]

      I just wanted to point out that this exists. The South Was Right! was on sale at the Fort Macon gift shop when I visited in September. I had to muffle my laughter/horror from the deadly serious looking lady at the cash register. Hooray NC state parks.

    8. Rory Aylward

      Lost Cause Apologist nonsense by two charlatans masquerading as historians. Someone cited this as a reference in a debate and after trying to read it I was embarrassed for them. It must have required a lot of effort to get all this nonsense in one little book, but the authors were clearly determined.This would make a good litmus test; if you give the book to someone and they like it, then they are too dumb to discuss the Civil War with.

    9. Brandon

      This was an interesting take on the civil war. While I wouldn't take this as a complete and historically accurate work, I do believe that it relays some arguments that are not made in most pieces about the same topic. Without any bias between north and south, I do believe this is something a civil war buff should pick up and read through for a unique view point.

    10. Chief Straight-arrow

      I learned that Lincoln was the first dictator of America. He was no different than Adolf Shickelgruber, AKA Adolf Hitler. He was like many liberals of today. Ate up with his imagined importance!

    11. Roger Quesnell

      Eye opening revelation of history that I never learned. A must read for every government schooled citizen.

    12. Chadbogue

      Southern veiw what it cause the war and much differnet than the Northern view on war that taught in public school.

    13. Susan Molloy

      This is a well-researched book in which the authors successfully make their assertions that the South conducted itself legitimately in seceding from the Union, yet culminating in the War for Southern Independence (1861-65). The book shows how the South is still controlled under the Federalist North's thumb. The only drawback to this book is the authors' somewhat snarky verbiage. Beyond that, this is a book worth reading.

    14. Savanna Kaiser

      As you might imagine, this book is hard to describe. The title alone draws much emotion and creates inevitable intrigue. I borrowed it from my brother’s bookshelf, eager to read “the other side” of the history we all grew up knowing. And boy, did this book deliver.From its first page to its last, there is SO much information and so many pieces of history I’ve never read before. The authors in no way make an argument for slavery, but rather point out the many various motives, first-hand a [...]

    15. John Murphy

      A MUST READ for anyone who cares about the truth. Put aside all of your pre-conceived notions and read this book if you believe in freedom. Well researched, cited and presented. If this book doesn't change your perspective, then you just aren't being intellectually honest.Includes the CSA Constitution and a comparison to the US Constitutionwere you taught about THAT in school? Did you know the CSA Constitution specifically addresses abolishing slavery? Did you realize that 90% of the entire US e [...]

    16. Diana Vale Balatico

      I would've given this book a zero if I could.Honestly, from the title I could already tell this would be so biased. I had no idea why I even read a bit of this book. Basically, this is just stating all the wrongs the North did, while depicting that the South was right all along, ignoring why the Union Army fought with them for the first place. And, besides, this country used to be a whole. When the Confederates formed, it was, in my opinion, totally illegitimate. What did the author mean that we [...]

    17. Jeff Ford

      A fascinating apology for southern secession. In no way are the authors presenting an impartial history nor do they pretend to do so. The truth is likely somewhere between the extremes of northern villainy presented in The South Was Right! and the view that the South was on wrong side of history that pervades the mainstream. I found the book to be well written and the author's arguments that a Yankee Myth exists and that the South had a right to secede to be sound.

    18. Brian Ervin

      Most history is written by the victor, but does the victor always tell the truth? A very well researched and written piece that should be part of any history buffs library.

    19. Diane Quist

      This is an incredible book with a Southern Perspective! It's only fair you get their opinion concerning the Civil War.

    20. Douglas Boren

      If only everyone would read this book! People, our history is not what we have been taught. This is a real eye opener!

    21. Anthony McKay

      The book was recommended to me by a friend. I give the book credit for highlighting little discussed facts about the Civil War. Beyond a telling of the matter from the perspective of the Confederacy, I was left unsure of the book's purpose. The book does make some compelling arguments about the Constitution and the Federal overreach that seems pertinent today and worthy of additional reflection and consideration. The book makes no attempt to justify slavery. There were a couple passages that did [...]

    22. James Simon

      This book has zero value from an educational viewpoint. It's a polemical assessment of the Civil War. Imagine if Michael Moore or Ann Coulter wrote a book about a historical event. This is the kind of book that would be produced.It's light on facts, and several of the stories appear to be made up.I found the read amusing and entertaining, as it is reasonably well written, the lack of truth in the verifiable information in the book is a problem. Several sources cited (The Apologia) don't appear t [...]
