Black Confederates. Charles Kelly Barrow, J. H., Segars, R. B. Rosenburg, Compiler and.
Gretna, LA: Pelican, 2004. Second printing [stated]. Trade paperback. [8], 191, [9] pages. Footnotes (Bibliographical References). Contributors. Index. Signed with sentiment by Barrow on half-title Barrow's business card laid in. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Contains correspondence, military records, and reminiscences from brave men who served what they considered their country. The author's desire was to research and write about black Confederates in order to educate people about an aspect of Southern history that has long been overlooked by historians. By enlightening people about this type of Confederate involvement, he hopes to prevent critics from attacking the Southern heritage. It is a legacy shared by all Southerners, regardless of their skin color. This volume reflects an effort to restore some accuracy to the historical record with regard to black soldiers who fought for the Confederacy. Through correspondence, military records, narrative reminiscences, and newspaper accounts from these brave men who served what they considered their country, we hope to discover not only that they did fight, but also how they fought to restore honor to the fallen among them.

When Dreams Came True; The GI Bill and the Making of Modern America. Michael J. Bennett.
Washington DC: Brassey's, 1996. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xvi, 336 pages. Notes. Index. Inscription signed by author on fep. One sheet of related ephemera laid in. Printing defect on page 195/6 with loss of some margin material. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Based on a Kirkus review: The GI Bill loosed forces that helped to transform America from the working-class, largely agricultural society into a largely middle-class society. Bennett, a former reporter, begins by tracing the origins of the bill and the fight to make it law in 1944. The American Legion was particularly influential: Members who had fought in WW I remembered the shabby treatment they had received when they came home. The meat, or the soul, of the book is Bennett's study of the ways in which the law helped transform postwar American life. It provided opportunities for education unavailable to previous generations, as well as low- priced home mortgages. GIs, most of them from the urban and rural working class, stormed college campuses in record numbers, raised student performance levels, and shook up the college culture. Millions of erstwhile blue-collar, rent-paying workers turned into professionals of every calling, as well as prosperous, skilled entrepreneurs and home-owners. GIs used the money they got to do vital if seemingly ordinary things and in the process created a more abundant and egalitarian society. The total postwar cost of $14.5 billion was an investment that returned manyfold more in revenue as veterans earned more and paid more taxes. Bennett believes that the GI Bill was the most successful government program since the Homestead Act.
