From the prolific pen of popular Southern author Michael Andrew Grissom, we present a special selection of essays from his writing career that began in 1987 and continues today. Especially known for his steadfast devotion to the history and culture of the Old South, he is widely acclaimed as "the true Rebel" of Southern authors, standing, sometimes alone, against those who zealously malign the people and culture of this land called Dixie. Most people know there is something wrong when they see monuments destroyed, Confederate history retold in the most defamatory of terms, and both Republicans and Democrats disparaging our own ancestors. But few living today know how we arrived at such a point of contempt and degeneracy. Grissom writes from the view of an eyewitness to history, having spent his teen years and early college years during the commemoration of the War Between the States in the 1960s, having endured the attempts of black activists to disrupt those events, and having lived through the turbulence of the so-called civil rights movement. It is from these historical essays written over the past thirty years that we get a truthful answer - an answer the reader will find nowhere else. Step by step, Grissom reveals the truth of what happened - and how it happened. Michael Andrew Grissom has earned two degrees from the University of Oklahoma and has lived in both Oklahoma and Tennessee. He is the recipient of the Oklahoma Heritage Distinguished Service Award and the United Daughters of the Confederacy's prestigious Jefferson Davis Medal. In 1996, Grissom wrote the inscription for the Tennessee Monument in Vicksburg National Military Park, and in 2004 he wrote the inscription for the Confederate Veterans Monument in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
