An interesting look at the role rhetoric played in the coming of the Civil War. A really dense text that at times can be hard to slog through. All in all a interesting twist on a topic with a lot of writing on it. Provides an interesting argument about the role of desire for disunion to prove a point ultimately led to the war. Worth the read, really interesting sources.
