The Real Lincoln
Charles L.C. Minor (1927)

The author of this important volume offers a concise, yet compelling, expose of the sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. This book is documented extensively and exclusively from Northern sources, many of which include Lincoln’s former friends and associates. As Minor points out, “Few who read this book will escape the conclusion that The Real Lincoln was a very different man, in his private and in his public life, from what the world’s verdict has pronounced him to be.” pb 274 pages $15.50 + shipping.

A View of the Constitution
William Rawle (1825)

Written by a Philadelphia lawyer, this nearly-forgotten book is an excellent treatise on the federal Constitution and openly discusses and defends the right of a State to withdraw from the Union. Wrote Rawle, "It depends on the State itself to retain or abolish the principle of representation, because it depends on the State itself whether it continues a member of the Union.... The secession of a State from the Union depends on the will of the people." What is not widely known today by the advocates of an "indivisible Union" is that this book was used to teach cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York from 1825 to 1826. pb 350 pages $19.50 + shipping.

America's Caesar (ABRIDGED edition)
Greg Loren Durand

America is no longer the land of the free. In Senate Report 93-549, the United States Congress made the astonishing admission that, since at least 9 March 1933, the American people have lived under a state of national emergency. Instead of a federal Government of delegated and limited powers, what now operates from Washington, D.C. is a centralized military despotism which claims ultimate sovereignty over its citizens and rules them by statute in all cases whatsoever.

Beginning with the usurpations of Abraham Lincoln, this book explains how the so-called emergency powers of the President of the United States developed over a period of seven decades and finally culminated in the virtual supplanting of the Constitution by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal democracy. The author draws heavily from a wealth of rare political literature from the past two centuries, as well as long-forgotten Government documents to paint an unsettling picture of American history and to show why nothing ever seems to change in Washington, no matter which political party is currently in power. pb (oversized); 546 pages $36.00 + Shipping

The True Nature and Character of Our Federal Government
Abel Parker Upshur (1863)

For forty years from the ratification of the Constitution, it was well understood that the American States were united in a political compact in which certain of their powers had been entrusted to a common agent, while their essential sovereignty and its attendant rights were reserved to themselves. One of these rights was that of secession. It was not until 1830 that the theory of a permanently consolidated nation from which withdrawal was unlawful first made an appearance in Joseph Story's Commentaries on the Constitution. Daniel Webster would rely heavily on Story's work in his debates in Congress with South Carolina Senators Robert Hayne and John C. Calhoun. Story and Webster denied that the Constitution was either "a compact between State governments" or that it had been "established by the people of the several States," asserting that it had instead been established by "the people of the United States in the aggregate." As such, the States were creatures of the Union rather than vice versa, rendering secession not only impossible, but treasonous. This book, written in 1840 by a Virginia lawyer who served as Secretary of the Navy in the Tyler Administration, and later re-issued in Philadelphia in 1863, is a brilliant response to the Story/Webster theory and also serves as a challenge to the modern Leviathan State which is modern America. pb 151 pages $8.50 + Shipping

Abolition, the Union, and the Civil War
Clement L.Vallandigham (1863)

Clement Laird Vallandigham was an Ohio Congressman who stood against the usurpations of the Lincoln Administration and was arrested and exiled for his convictions. This book, like few others, exposes the despotic character of the sixteenth President and the fanatical agenda of the Republican party from a distinctly Northern perspective. His speech entitled “Executive Usurpation,” delivered in the House of Representatives in response to Lincoln’s 4 July 1861 address to Congress, is not to be missed. pb 248 pages $13.00 + shipping.

Northern Rebellion and Southern Secession
Elbert William R. Ewing (1904)

The origin and progress of the anti-Union party of the North is clearly marked out within these pages, beginning with the first threatenings of secession in New England before the close of the Eighteenth Century and documenting the Northern States efforts to drive out their Southern sisters. Most interesting is the evidence presented by the author that Lincoln and the Abolitionists were opposed to the extension of slavery into the Territories because of their desire to reserve them as an outlet for free White labor only, thus dispelling the myth of a "Great Emancipator" motivated by love for the Black man and genuine concern for his alleged plight. pb; 383 pages $19.50 + Shipping

History of the Great Civil War in the United States
Rushmore G. Horton (1866)

Written by an anti-war Democrat from the State of New York, the opening chapters of this important work chronicle the birth and growth of the monarchical faction in the United States and demonstrate how it eventually joined itself to the Abolition cause in order to gain political power, seize control of the general Government, and subvert the Constitution and the laws of the country. The remainder of the book chronicles the tragic events and bloody battles of the War Between the States, closing with an admonition to the people of both sections to devote themselves to reconciliation and a reversal of the effects of the Abolitionist revolution. pb 384 pages $20.50 + Shipping

Facts & Falsehoods Concerning the War on the South
George Edmonds (1904)

This extremely rare book provides page after page of quotations from nearly exclusively Northern sources showing that, for the past 140 years, the American people have not been told the truth about the so-called "Civil War" and the true nature and agenda of Abraham Lincoln's Republican party. As the author points out, "Imperialists always look on the people as sheep, to be deceived and driven" and "despotism is a noxious plant, which hates the light and flourishes only in dark places." A people who are kept in ignorance of their past will offer no serious resistance to tyranny in the present and future. This book raises a much-needed voice in defense of the many thousands of Southerners who died, not for slavery, as modern revisionist historians claim, but for their right, and that of their posterity, to govern themselves in peace. pb 280 pages $15.50 + Shipping

Truths of History
Mildred Lewis Rutherford (1920)

This small book consists of page after page of quotations - mostly derived from Northern sources - which paint a very different picture of the causes of the War of 1861 than is commonly accepted today. The documentation presented here proves that the North was responsible for bringing on the war, that the war was not fought by the South merely to maintain or extend slavery, that the U.S. Government was responsible for the horrors of Andersonville prison, that Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant who ignored his constitutional duties as President, etc. This is a good primer for introducing a Yankee friend to the Southern perspective of the War Between the States. pb 140 pages $8.50 + Shipping

Hampton and His Redshirts
Alfred B. Williams (1935)

The "carpetbagger" government that ruled South Carolina from 1868 until it was overthrown in 1876 caused more destruction than the four years of the War Between the States. Judging by the record which these corrupt politicians left, continuance of their rule would have resulted in the irretrievable annihilation of the fruits of two centuries of labor, ingenuity, and courage. This book is a fascinating chronicle of how the people of South Carolina, led by former Confederate General Wade Hampton and his famous Redshirts, rose up to free themselves from the intolerable and dangerous conditions of the Reconstruction period. pb 460 pages $24.00 + shipping.

Ousting the Carpetbagger From South Carolina
Henry T. Thompson (1927)

South Carolina had been stigmatized by her enemies as "the nest wherein was hatched the snake of Secession," and it was the purpose of congressional Reconstruction to mete out retribution upon her people and to ensure the ascendency of the radical Republican party. Thus, at the point of the bayonet, was evolved a condition which is without parallel in all history - the very best and noblest citizens of the State were subjugated to a position of inferiority to their former slaves. This book is a history of the political revolution of 1876 in which South Carolinians, led by General Wade Hampton and his Redshirts, united to throw off the oppressive yoke of "Carpetbagger" government and Negro domination. pb; 194 pages $12.00 + Shipping

A Southside View of Slavery
Nehemiah Adams (1854)

Few who agitated against Southern slavery in the Nineteenth Century had ever seen it with their own eyes. His mind occupied with Abolitionist propaganda, Nehemiah Adams journeyed from Boston to the South to witness the "horrors" of slavery for himself. Instead of the expected scenes of cowing slaves, whose humanity was being crushed by cruel bondage, what he found was a well-ordered society in which the Negroes were mainly content, well-cared for by their masters, and even evangelized. The author warns his Northern brethren that a continued assault upon the South's "peculiar institution" would lead to a destruction of the Union and the ultimate ruin of the Black population. Of particular interest is the chapter written in response to Harriet Beecher Stowe's fictional romance, Uncle Tom's Cabin. pb 214 pages $13.00 + shipping.
