I've met so many Marylanders who don't see themselves as having a Southern heritage. Their reading this book would reveal a completely different history than what they (all of us, in fact) have been taught to believe about their people and their state. Surely, it would give them a wholly different view of the historical identity of their ancestors and, thereby, themselves.
I think that the most crucial factors surrounding the suppression of the basic human rights of the Marylanders of 1861, with the sole purpose being to prevent their secession, was not only because their having seceded would have surrounded Washington, D.C. by a seceded Virginia and a seceded Maryland, but their having seceded would have most probably led to the secession of Delaware and possibly other states in the area.
This is a MUST-HAVE book for anyone who has an interest in the truth concerning the war and the role played by Maryland, but also for the person interested in the history and identity of the people of the great state of Maryland.
