    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Only a tiny handful of slaves responded to the Confederate proposal. They viewed it as an act of desperation and were skeptical of the sincerity of promises of emancipation. The reaction of the slaves generally was 'Why would we fight for the Confederacy; it's not our country? They were very well informed through the grapevine.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The story of the Civil War is usually told as a story of two white armies and two white governments. The popular image is of passive, grateful slaves kneeling at the feet of Father Abraham. But in fact, the slaves were very active in shaping the war and its outcome.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The more I read about this episode, the more I realized how important it was to our understanding of the war; it wasn't just an interesting little footnote. After all, how could the war be about slavery if the Confederates were willing to sacrifice slavery in order to win the war? And it turned out that there was a cornucopia of information on that and related subjects available in letters, government documents, and newspaper articles and editorials.”
