Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"More than the definitive account of the Confederate battle flag controversy in South Carolina, this book cuts through the fog of the war over history to offer a balanced, insightful perspective on how a southern state attempted to reconcile its divisive pasts. K. Michael Prince is adept at setting the historical context, illuminating the ironies and foibles of the participants, and offering hope for an eventual reconciliation."— David Goldfield, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and author of Still Fighting the Civil War: The American South and Southern History

"With a vivid sense of history, K. Michael Prince provides a balanced, scholarly, and provocative work that enhances understanding of a symbol that evokes competing and deep-seated feelings about identity."—Jack Bass, College of Charleston, and coauthor of The Orangeburg Massacre

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a native South Carolinian who has been witnessing the Confederate flag debate for 50 years, I naturally was attracted to this book. I have read 79 pages so far. I will not read an 80th page. This guy has been conducting a relentless diatribe about how anyone who respects Southern heritage is either a misinformed idiot, or an outright liar. He hasn't even discussed the thought that people may just want to honor their fallen ancestors, no matter what causes motivated them to war. By his reasoning, we shouldn't honor our Vietnam veterans because some people disagree about our involvement. And he "informs" us that the symbols which we choose to use are incorrect and inaccurate. I should have recognized the scholarship of this work when I saw that the author went to Clemson.Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys: South Carolina and the Confederate Flag
