DESCRIPTION When one thinks of the American Civil War and the South, the last thing that comes to mind is hilarity, merriment, and levity. Yet, the Confederate soldier had a finely tuned sense of the ridiculous, evident at times even in the heat of battle, as award-winning author-historian Lochlainn Seabrook amply demonstrates in his entertaining lighthearted book, Support Your Local Confederate: Wit and Humor in the Southern Confederacy. Derived from original 19th- and early 20th-Century sources, Seabrook’s collection of some 400 old-timey entries covers a wide spectrum of authentic Confederate humor, from jokes about the everyday life of a soldier, to funny anecdotal stories concerning food, clothing, the weather, women, marching, weaponry, and combat; from witty Confederate sayings, to sagacious Confederate views and advice on money, success, marriage, and happiness. The whimsical, sarcastic, and often sharp-tongued Confederate soldier spared no one: his waggish playfulness, droll erudition, devilish prank-playing, and witty repartee found an overabundance of unsuspecting victims among his army buddies, his highfalutin superiors, and even his Yankee foes - a group with whom he often shared coffee, traded clothing, and engaged in comical banter. Along with an introduction, endnotes, and bibliography, Mr. Seabrook’s work is generously illustrated with old Confederate images from the Victorian Era, and also includes several of his own jocose contributions. This delightful and hilarious romp through the archives of Confederate wisdom, tomfoolery, and horseplay will make you think, smile, and laugh out loud. Destined to become a classic in Southern literature. Support Your Local Confederate is available in paperback and hardcover.
