Entertaining read, even if some of the "facts" are in dispute if not outright disproven. It makes a great story that a Mississippi County seceded from the Confederacy. It would make an even better story if it was true. Still, as I am headed toward Mississippi to live, there was plenty in here to make me think, want to explore and read some more of the history of my soon to be newly adopted state.
I'm not quite finished with this book, having a tough time gettting through it. While it's packed with a lot of interesting information about Mississippi history and lore, the writing is like having a conversation with a little kid, goes back and forth and is all over the place; it's actually kind of funny if you approach it right!
