While searching our library for another book I stumbled across “Confederate Alphabet” by Rickey E. Pittman a book written for children. This is an excellent, patriotic, and inspiring book for any Southern family. A highly recommend it.
It is not politically correct and several Southern heroes, like Captain William Quantrill, Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, and Brigadier Gen. Stand Watie, are featured; not exactly Northern favorites. The book was illustrated by Stephanie Ford. Several of the illustrations are breath-taking and help reinforce the narrative of the book.
My only complaint is the back cover illustration is missing some Confederate states and territories. Lots of brave Southerners died fighting for West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Indian territory (Oklahoma), and Arizona territory for them to be left off.
