Book Note: Civil War Alabama by Christopher Lyle McIlwain, Sr.
Posted on Monday August 22, 2016
The editors of Litera Scripta have taken pleasure, over a number of years, in talking about Alabama’s Civil War and Reconstruction with University of Alabama School of Law alumnus Christopher McIlwain. His book Civil War Alabama is a long-overdue assessment of Alabama Unionists, a surprisingly numerous group whose fate has hitherto been either to be maligned or to be ignored. In this connection we are delighted to publish a second book note by G. Ward Hubbs of Birmingham-Southern College.
