Phillips Dillard's pro-Confederate dissertation finally published by Mercer Univ.

Phillip Dillard's 1999 dissertation is being published as "Jefferson Davis's Final Campaign." The dissertation was titled "Independence or Slavery: The Confederate Debate over arming slavery."

The point of the dissertation was that the purpose of the Confederacy wasn't slavery. I have a copy.

The fact that Mercer University press is publishing this isn't surprising. They published James Oscar Farmer, "Metaphysical Confederacy" praised by Eugene Genovese.

I suppose Mercer will publish most anything sympathetic to the Confederacy.
