really liked it
bookshelves: historiography, history, sectionalism, antebellum-history

i eally liked the selections here, i almost read all of them. that is surprising since i normally read about half and feel like it's enough.

it would have been nice if the sources that they used were listed anywhere, but it's still a nice overview of what historians have been saying about the secession crisis since it happened. (yes you read correctly, since it happened! you got some fredrick douglass and alexander stephans in there!)
