James W.  Loewen October 1, 2010

James W. Loewen, author of 'The Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader: The 'Great Truth' about the 'Lost Cause''

Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...in his Second Inaugural Address, Abraham Lincoln stated that 'all knew that slavery was somehow the cause of the war.' At the time no one disputed it. But in the years since 1865, a completely different interpretation has taken hold of the public mind. How did this happen and why? Our guest today proposes that like good historians we go back to the original sources and find out. Our guests name is James W. Loewen and his new book, co-edited with Edward H. Sebesta, is called 'The Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader: The 'Great Truth' about the 'Lost Cause'' we will talk about it today, on Civil War Talk Radio."
