he is my grandfather

Having read his works before, I believe I am decently qualified to reveal his longwinded nature with words. As compared to a modern cadence of speech, and that his run-on eccentricities were lengthy even in his era (as Dean of Arts and Sciences at West Virginia University), sometimes he requires a very attentive read. When he attacks a subject, he is as well informed and deeply immersed as it gets, but he is a snapshot of his time period and how history was viewed then and this should be kept in mind when comparing him to today's historians. His views are likely very accurate, well researched and were often shared by the few contemporaries of his who were as well versed on these matters. I suggest his works on the Civil War, especially, as this subject, and his special devotion to it, was a mainstay throughout his life (he was born during that War). He passed his interest in it on to both his son, daughter-in-law and grandson.
