" By 1935, Du Bois had written his BLACK RECONSTRUCTION IN AMERICA, a
Marxist history of the post-Civil War period, but still had not joined the
CPUSA. With the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, the Party would do a classic
political back-flip and abandon their radical militancy in opposition to
racism, disgusting labor activists like A. Philip Randolph in the process.
Du Bois is still a revolutionary and dangerous thinker. "

One example of a Civil War historian who has taken the work of DuBois
seriously is Valdosta State professor David Williams. He explicitly follows
in DuBois' footsteps with recent books such as Rich Man's War: Class,
Caste, and Confederate Defeat in the Lower Chattahoochee Valley, and A
People's History of the Civil War: Struggles for the Meaning of Freedom.
