Reprint Resources

Understanding what really happened during an historical event or period of time means looking through source material written at the time by people who were there. Too often, we rely on what is taught in the public schools from books written by those with a strong political agenda. That agenda almost always shows The North as heroic freedom fighters, while showing The South as … well, you know the story.

We have added a collection of reprints in PDF format that will be helpful to anyone wanting to learn history from those who were there. Following is a list of the documents that are now in the Confederate Colonel Resources collection:

    I’ve just taken a few minutes to look through a couple of the items listed in your post, apparently put up late last night – “Reprint Resources”.

    Thank you for the time and effort you’ve put into this. While there are other listings on the web, this seems to be one of the best I’ve run across. I’m looking forward to spending some time in it and learning from it.

    Wait…I thought that the winners wrote the history? Hmmmmm! I guess this list of Lost Cause literature proves differently.

  3. Corey,

    You disappoint me, sir; you know better than that. While you and I are on opposite sides of the issue, I’ve always respected your writing (and even agreed with you once in a while). You’re wrong, but even intelligent people are wrong on some issues.

    These are not history books. They are accounts of those who lived during that time period (while many of these were written years after the war and “Reconstruction”, the authors experienced it first hand). When we speak of history being written by the victors, we are speaking of the “Monday morning quarterbacking” that puts the victors’ “spin” on the events. These would be considered the original source material that the history book writers should have been using and referencing and quoting from.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I think I’ll have to spend some time poking around here. Thank-you!

    That was a gentlemanly and forceful response to Mr. Meyer.
