BOOK DESCRIPTION Did you know that . . . • American slavery got its start in the North? • the American abolition movement began in the South? • most Southern generals did not own slaves, and many, like Robert E. Lee, were abolitionists? • many Northern generals, like U.S. Grant, owned slaves and said they would not fight for abolition? • according to the 1860 Census a mere 4.8 percent of Southerners owned slaves, 95.2 percent did not? • Abraham Lincoln was a white separatist who wanted to send all blacks “back to Africa”? • Jefferson Davis adopted a black boy and freed Southern slaves before the North did? • Lincoln was not against slavery, he was against the spread of slavery? • Lincoln supported the idea of corralling African-Americans in their own all-black state? • true slavery was never practiced in the South? • the U.S. was originally known as “the Confederate States of America,” and that this is why the Southern Confederacy adopted this name for itself in 1861? • Lincoln "won" both the 1860 and 1864 elections with less than 50 percent of the American vote? • Lincoln was a big government liberal (with socialists and communists in his administration and armies), Davis was a small government conservative? • there were tens of thousands of both black and Native-American slave owners? • Lincoln started the Civil War, not the South? • the North fought to "preserve the Union," not to abolish slavery? • the South fought to uphold the original Constitution, not to maintain slavery? • it would have cost ten times less to free the slaves and reimburse their owners than fight the War? • the Northern armies were racially segregated, the Southern armies were racially integrated? • after emancipation 95 percent of all blacks voluntarily remained in the South? • between 300,000 and 1 million African-Americans fought for the Confederacy? • Europe would have supported the South but she was scared off by Lincoln’s war threats? • Northern prisons had higher death rates than Southern ones? • the original Ku Klux Klan was an anti-Yankee organization with thousands of black members? • “Reconstruction” was a dismal failure, which is why the South is still recovering from the War? In Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!, Southern historian and award-winning author Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook sets the record straight on these and hundreds of other commonly misrepresented topics in this easy-to-read, well documented handbook on the American “Civil War.” This international blockbuster is the book that every Civil War museum, house, gift shop, and Website has been waiting for, and which every Civil War buff and student of history has been asking for! Learn the truth about the War, secession, slavery, abolition, the Confederacy, the Union, Jefferson Davis, Abraham Lincoln, Reconstruction, and much more. This isn’t just a hard-hitting exposé of Yankee myth. Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! has the power to heal hearts and change minds, for in reeducating the world about Lincoln's War it will give Northerners a better understanding of the conflict, while making Southerners, of all races and political persuasions, proud to be Southern! The foreword is by African-American educator Nelson W. Winbush, M.Ed., a grandson of the Confederacy’s only black chaplain, Private Louis Napoleon Nelson - one of 65 black Confederate soldiers who proudly served and fought under General Nathan Bedford Forrest.
