Robert E. Lee and Me
A Southerner's Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause
Ty Seidule - 2021-01-26
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the lasting impact of the Confederate legacy with Ty Seidule's Robert E. Lee and Me. Through a unique blend of personal reflection and historical analysis, Seidule challenges the myth that the Civil War was fought for honorable reasons and highlights the true goal of the Confederacy: the subjugation and enslavement of Black Americans. As a retired brigadier general and professor of history, Seidule brings a soldier's perspective to this complex and divisive topic. With insight and compassion, he seeks to understand why the facts of the Civil War remain buried beneath layers of myth and misinformation, and why they continue to divide our country today.

Follow young Josie as she prepares to fulfill her dream of dancing at the upcoming powwow. With the help of her family, she gathers all the essential pieces necessary for her debut performance - a dress, shawl, cape, leggings, moccasins, and her spirit name. The powwow circle is a welcoming space where Josie's nervousness melts away, and the love of her community fuels her dance to honor her ancestors. This Ojibwe girl's coming-of-age story, highlighted by the author's own daughter's experience at powwow, is beautifully complemented by elegant artwork that captures the essence of Mother Earth and traditions linking Josie to generations past and yet to come.
