America And Slavery

February 2024
1min read

What’s astonishing and fair about your February/March issue is its inclusion of one article praising Confederate generals (“General Longstreet and the Lost Cause,” by Stephen W. Sears) and another exposing the pervasiveness and profitability of slavery, which was the institution those generals fought to preserve. I commend David Brion Davis for setting the record straight about slavery in America.

We hope you enjoy our work.
