    was apparently the title of one of the author's previous books.

    I'm assuming the book adequately covered the subject of white southerners who fought for the Union army, especially since the fact that many working class whites didn't support the Confederacy is much more relevant to undermining many myths people seem to hold about it. It always boggles my mind, as a northerner, when I see white southerns whom I suspect to be working class lauding a society based on a clearly feudal economy. I just don't get it. Why do they love so much a brutal economic system?
