Southerners: We Are Not Puritans

This is a fascinating lecture by Dr. James Kibler on the Celtic influence on the South. He compares what Cromwell did to the Irish with what the North did to the South.

Near the end of the lecture, Kibler recommends this book: How Celtic Culture Invented Southern Literature by James P. Cantrell. Kibler is one of the Southern writers profiled in this book.
