Re: Why the Confederacy lost
In Response To: Re: Why the Confederacy lost ()

David --

You are describing the standard position on conscription voiced over the years. Are you familiar with Steve Newton's Lost for the Cause: the Confederate Army in 1864? The author argues exactly the opposite position, that conscription greatly increased the ranks of Confederate armies immediately prior to the campaign of 1864. It's a Google book, so the author's data can be examined by anyone with access to an internet browser.
