Kingston, Kentucky; nd: McDowell Publications. Octavo. 560p 24 page index. Inscribed by the author: "enjoy my writing on 1859-1865 times". The author writes on Kentucky matters relating to Lincoln and such figures as Whitfield Moody, Cassius Clay, 1810-1903), John Hunt Morgan and Abraham Lincoln. The writer has no hint of objectivity but sees the glories of the Lost Cause, despises the intrigues of Lincoln and Harriet Beech Stowe. In short, writes of a South that was virtuous, genteel, and rooted in traditional values. His chapter on Kingston, Kentucky in 1862, for instance, laments the Yankees who overpriced their goods. He mocks the shiny blue trousers of the Union Troops and praises the high quality of the Kentucky young men who joined the Confederacy. In short, this book is interesting more for its Trumpian views of life than for its ability to see the truth. Bound in blue buckram lettered in gilt. A very good copy with one line of the prologue highlighted. (Inventory #: 018876)
