Was the Civil War the greatest war in American history, or was it the biggest mistake in American history? Was the blood of more than one million men spilled over countless battlefields necessary to get rid of slavery? Was the country we called free for everyone just an idea? Was a nation born and then destroyed because of an institution that was nothing more than peculiar? Does the flag of a dead country that still flies over courthouses in the South speak for a nation? Does that same flag represent the evils of slavery or the pride of a people who don't know how to let go? Would our forefathers approve of and recognize the country we call America today? Did America's greatest war finally make us one nation?
Let an 11-year-old boy answer these questions the only way he knows how--by being honest about his country and himself. Unfurled No More Forever is about the death of an evil institution and the creation of a nation our forefathers truly intended.
