Freehling, William W. The South Vs. the South: How Anti-Confederate Southerners Shaped the Course of the Civil War. Oxford; New York: Oxford University Press, 2001.
1. Thesis: The U.S. is not the only “house divided” during the Civil War. Divisions between white and black, pro- and anti-Confederates, and varying loyalty of the Upper and Lower South states to slavery all contributed greatly to the fall of the Confederacy. “Divisions within the South helped pave the path toward war. The same divisions behind army lines helped turn the war against the slaveholders.” (p. xi)
