“Oldham's memoir supports the argument that the Confederacy declined largely because of internal (read political) rather than external (read military) pressures. As such, this book will prove of immediate interest to a wide variety of Civil War and southern historians and will wedge itself immediately into this ongoing historical debate.”—Christopher Phillips, coeditor of The Union on Trial: The Political Journals of Judge William Barclay Napton, 1829–1883
