One of the Greatest Scholars of All Time: Author of
one “of the more amateurish neo-Confederate books,”*
a “travesty of historical method and documentation”**
Anyone visiting from the historical writer (but see below) Tom DiLorenzo’s most recent comments on the unfairness of the world can visit here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here and make up his or her own mind about the infiltration of the freedom movement by neo-Confederate kooks and other advocates of racist hatred. (Note: it’s recommended that enthusiasts for the Confederacy read at least a few of the posts documenting Lew Rockwell‘s connections to holocaust deniers, racists, and other, um, colorful characters and think about it before cutting and pasting heated denials.)
Note that the unnamed person (not me, but I endorse the statement, anyway) quoted in this article in The New Republic mentioned “the confederacy,” not “the confederate government,” which is yet another example of Mr. DiLorenzo’s research and documentation skills, as demonstrated here, here (one of the few historians strongly critical of Abraham Lincoln refers to the “blatant errors of the more amateurish neo-Confederate books, such as Tom DiLorenzoâ??s The Real Lincoln“), and here (in which about the only other historian similarly critical of Lincoln notes that DiLorenzo’s work is “a travesty of historical method and documentation”).
