Through years of dedication and extensive knowledge, Dr. William L. Barney has become a staple of the educational system at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Dr. Barney has spent the majority of his career as a professor in the UNC department of history.

Along with establishing himself as a well-respected professor, Dr. Barney has authored and co-authored numerous historical works and textbooks.

In The Making of a Confederate, Dr. Barney chronicles the life, inner struggle, and complexity of a Southern white man born into a slaveholding family in North Carolina through the time of secession, Civil War, and post-Civil War America. Featured themes include the cause of the Confederate identity and how some couldn’t let go of this identity after the war.

From information about particular battles, generals, politicians, and armament; to art, music, medicine, and the cultural influences of the times; Dr. Barney leaves no stone unturned.
