At the height of the Civil War, a Georgia citizen wrote to his governor that "the Southern people are fast becoming as bitterly divided against each other as the Southern and Northern people ever has been." In this eye-opening new book, historian David Williams reveals just how divided the Confederacy truly was. Instead of the united front that has been passed down in Southern mythology, the South was in fact fighting two civil wars - an external one that we know so much about and an internal one about which there is scant literature and virtually no public awareness. In this book, Williams shows that from the Confederacy's very beginnings white Southerners were as likely to have opposed secession as to have supported it, and they undermined the Confederate war effort at nearly every turn.
