Hello from Bosnia, very nice blog

Wondered if you've seen these maps:

The collection includes many detailed battle maps with troop locations, etc.

Equally important, it may seem natural to assume that your historical interests are somehow separate from your polemics about contemporary American foreign policy. But in fact the two are related, and central themes of the novel bear directly upon current issues. In one way, this may create difficulties, as 'The Butcher's Cleaver' is very much a Confederate's eye view of the Civil War. As a Brit, for whom this is someone else's history, I have been fascinated to see how sparks have flown on SST when questions to do with the Civil War are discussed. It seems, like Vietnam, to be still very much a 'third rail' for many -- not of course that this being so is really surprising.

Odd name. That is perceptive. The novel exists on a number of "levels" one of which is the one you mention. The issues underlying the CW/WBS were not resolved by the outcome no matter how much Northern nationalist enthusiasts might hope and insist. Usually, such Northern sentiments are expressed with considerable vitriol. I am not speaking of slavery. This was an incubus that our Northern friends were kind enough to rid us of at least forty or fifty years before it would have disappeared anyway. No, I am speaking of the whole complex of political issues that our English ancestors brought with them in the 17th Century and which they successfully spread to later arrivals. These isuues have to do with the nature of political power in a heterogeneous country. Should power be concentrated or exercised locally? Should the power of central government be carefully limited? These question are age old among the English speaking peoples as Churchill might have said. Reconstruction and forced re-admission of the seceded statees ensured that thi sdebate would continue, perhaps forever. In the end one might ask, "What did the North win?" Ah, I forgot. They were motivated by a love so strong it could not let them go. pl

David Habakkuk has an intriguing observation in his Amazon site book review. He posits the American Civil War as a continuation of the English Civil War- landed Cavaliers vs. Roundhead Puritans.
