"Archaeology is the search for fact. Not truth. If it's truth you're interested in, Doctor Tyree's Philosophy class is right down the hall." ~ Indiana Jones
When I subscribe to magazines which focus on Civil War history, I really don't want to read "preachy" styled articles emphasizing a morality play regarding the Civil War: "North good, South bad" and "get your mind right you nasty neo-Confederate", blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Most of these faddish pieces are more about the author and who he/she is trying to impress (or perhaps rid themselves of their own peer-induced guilt), than they are about anything else. When I read some of these articles and magazines, I often feel like I'm being lectured to by a Sunday school teacher - and a very misinformed one at that. Quite frankly, I'm sick of it and I'm voting with my wallet.
Case(s) in point . . .
