While his anecdotes and his take on the various Confederate generals he meets are terrific, this work truly shines in the outsiders perspective he brings to the conflict. He states how he initially favored the North, but his perspective changes as he travels through the South. Yet, despite his newly found Southern sympathies, Fremantle turns out to be a fairly unbiased observer. He remains a thorough Englishman who is experiencing a new culture during a time of upheaval. As such, his descriptions of the little details of life in the Confederacy are priceless. Fremantle recognizes the complexity of the American Civil War, something many people do not understand today. His memoir makes compulsive reading for any Civil War enthusiast.
I love that these kinds of books are free on the Kindle. Thank you Amazon for a great service.
It is politically incorrect . This account by a noncombatant English observer
contradicts the historical revisionist. If you ever wished you could enter Texas in 1863 and travel
through 11 southern states and meet the great generals of the war between the states, well you can't.
But you can read the diary entry's of the man who did.
