The Question Club
I'm reading True Grit at the moment, which I really love, but can you guys give me some help with some of the terminology? I'm Australian and some of the things I guess are really interrelated with American history.|
- What are the core differences between Cumberland Presbyterianism and the Southern/USA Presbyterian Church?
- Related to the above, what is the Doctrine of Election?
- I know that at one stage after the Civil War, the Democrats were the "right" and Republicans were the "left". At what point/president did they switch in ideology?
DN/DK: What are some good novels like True Grit, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Cold Mountain, To Kill a Mocking Bird etc. (i.e, set in the 18th, 19th and early 20th century and dealing with the war, Jim Crowe laws, the restoration period etc.)? Is 'The Last of the Mohican's any good? I've read somewhere that it's so historically inaccurate that it's offensive.
