"If slaves will make good soldiers, our whole theory of slavery is wrong."

-Howell Cobb, Georgia, in repsonse to Gen. Patrick Cleburne's proposal to make soldiers of slaves as a condition of their freedom.

Just recently read Guns of the South by Turtledove. Even if you're not in to alternate history or sci-fi, it's well worth the read. I promise you'll learn something about the war that you didn't know. Here's my review from Goodreads:

"Phew! This was one of those lost weekend books. I haven't had a reading experience like that in about a decade or so.

I guess, fortunately, I've been sick, so I've had the ability to read more or less to my heart's content.

You will learn from this book, but not in the "learning is fun" kind of way--in the way that you'll know the history like you know a good friend. You don't remember just how you learned it, you just did.

And yet you'll also be transported by a skillful piece of science fiction. It's full of tension, action, moral complexity, and singingly accurate historical detail that brings you right there.

Never did I feel like I was being lectured to. I felt, rather, that I was transported to another time. I feel it's about the closest thing I'll ever get to living in Robert E. Lee's world."
