Sam reminds us of our long, difficult ‘differentness’ – Jane S. Gabin

I first met Sam when I was a beginning graduate student at UNC many decades ago. I had just left New York City for Chapel Hill, not out of crazy love for American literature so much as a curiosity to see another part of the United States. And oh, I soon realized I was in a different place altogether. My travels in the South had taken me to towns and cities where I saw plaques about “The War for Southern Independence” and “The War of Northern Aggression.” Never heard those phrases before.
