Was the Civil War really about slavery? Or was it a war fought over money? Civil War historian Samuel W. Mitcham Jr. (Vicksburg, Bust Hell Wide Open) opens his fascinating new book, It Wasn’t About Slavery, with Dr. Grady McWhiney’s claim that “what passes as standard American history is really Yankee history written by New Englanders or their puppets to glorify Yankee heroes and ideals.” Relying on nineteenth-century sources, Mitcham lays out his case that slavery was not the primary cause of the Civil War and that the Civil War narrative taught in schools today is wildly misleading.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dr. Samuel Mitcham has nailed down this myth for all times for those who have the honesty to hear the evidence. If it was about one thing, the war was about money, the intent of the ruling elements of the North to keep their profitable control of Southern land and people.” Clyde Wilson, professor emeritus, University of South Carolina
