The book has tons of information but is so condensed that I can see needing to supplement with many other materials. It has great photographs and good review questions. In some ways it should be much longer so information can be more clearly presented. It is useful as a starting point for study.

My son says Social Studies is his favorite subject and I credit a lot of it to this book. We have so much fun reading it together and talking about our states history. It is easy to read and has lots of beautiful pics and bold captions.

According to his story, the issue, of Masoff stating that thousands of blacks fought for the South, was brought to light by William & Mary historian, Carol Sheriff who states, "It's disconcerting that the next generation is being taught history based on an unfounded claims instead of accepted scholarship."

Sieff fails to mention that both Carol Sheriff and David Blight, both used as sources in the article, are coauthors of a school textbook themselves, "A People and A Nation" (Houghton Mifflin, 2008) ,therefore this creates a conflict of interest and puts their credibility in question as unbiased sources.

Sieff, also uses historian James McPherson of Princeton University,who won the Pulitzer for his book "Battle Cry of Freedom," in 1989,as a source. Again, the Post writer leaves out the fact that, McPherson is an anti-Confederate extremist. McPherson went as far as signing a petition in 2009, asking President Obama not to lay a wreath at the Confederate Monument at Arlington Cemetery, to honor the dead soldiers. The Arlington Confederate Monument,was created by Jewish-American sculptor, and former Rebel, Moses Jacob Ezekiel, and displays an African American Confederate soldier marching with European American Confederate soldiers.

James M. McPherson, knows that blacks fought for the Confederate Army. He wrote the Foreword on the book, "On the Altar of Freedom." (see quote below)

While I do agree with Sieff that the Sons of Confederate Veterans isn't an unbiased source neither are Carol Sheriff and David Blight both of whom have a vested interest in seeing Masoff fail and worse of all James mcPherson, who has a history of anti-Confederate activity and intolerance.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now in regards to whether black confederates fought for the South or not, you will have to decide on your own, but here are some quotes:

"It is now pretty well established, that there are at present moment many colored men in the Confederate army doing duty not only as cooks, servants and laborers, but as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulders, and bullets in their pockets....

-Frederick Douglass, black abolitionist, 1861

"Among the captured prisoners, amounting in all to 63, are 5 black men; two were
fully armed and equipped, as Rebel sharpshooters...the other three were at work in the trenches."

-Corpl. James Henry Gooding, "On The Altar of Freedom" (p.54)

"...And after the battle of Gettysburg in July 1863,..reported among the rebel prisoners were seven blacks in Confederate uniforms fully armed as soldiers"

-New York Herald, July 11, 1863
