But I thought the Union <i>won</i> the Civil War.

I just finished James Loewen's excellent book
Lies Across America. His
previous book, Lies My Teacher Told Me,
debunked a great deal of popular history as it's taught in high school; his
latest book attacks distorted, incomplete, or misleading history presented
on monuments and historical markers. Both books are well-written and
are accessible to history neophytes such as myself.
