This is probably old news to many of you, but I recently discovered and purchased this book for my library. The informative, enlightening, non-reconstructed and bold writing of the Kennedy brothers, James and Walter (not John and Robert, obviously!) is quite riveting.
The book, published by Pelican Publishing Company, is titled “The South was Right!” A rather catchy title there! Ain’t it? I reckon they wanted to dispense with the formalities of modern political correctness and ensure that their stated aim and end for the treatise was unmistakable. If so, they clearly hit their mark.
The editorial review on Amazon reads:
An authoritative and documented study of the mythology behind Civil War history, clearly exhibiting how the South was an independent country invaded, captured, and still occupied by a vicious aggressor.
About the Author
Descendants of Civil War soldiers, twin brothers James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy have held posts with the Sons of Confederate Veterans for several years. Both also are founding members of the League of the South. In their spare time, the brothers enjoy participating in reenactments of Civil War battles. They are also the authors of The South Was Right! and Why Not Feedom!: America’s Revolt Against Big Government, both published by Pelican.
I found a copy at the local Barnes and Noble (believe it or not). However, I have seen it available online for substantially less than what I paid for it there.
This is MUST HAVE reading for anyone interested in the war between the States!
