Too often the "does show" is misleading or downright incorrect
information. Professional training does teach one how to research.
There are gifted writers who are trained. There are well-written but
historically sloppy books by non-trained "historians."
The first place I look before buying a book is the bibliography and the
footnotes (too often endnotes). If these are missing then I don't waste
This is not to say that being a professional or even doing lots of
research guarantees an accurate book. But it does increase the likely
hood of accuracy.

The Civil War can be described as the kudzu vine of American historiography: books about it will grow anywhere, in vast numbers.
Double-dog hooray, Dave. Write about what you like. I do
appreciate the scholarly approach, but mostly, I like to read something
someone wrote just because he wanted to. It does show.
