Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe:
A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War
by Lochlainn Seabrook
If you’re a Southern parent who’s fed up with the Yankee myths, distortions, lies, and anti-South propaganda your child is being taught at school about the Civil War, then Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is for you. Award-winning author and Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook, one of the world’s leading pro-South writers, has created an incomparable guide specifically for Southern children, one that teaches them the Truth about Lincoln’s War - from the South’s perspective!
Written for ages 8-12 (grades 2-6), the book is conveniently divided into six sections and thirty-seven chapters, and covers all of the salient facts and events of the War. Included are chapters on the causes that led up to the conflict, the real origins of American slavery, the truth about Southern slavery, the start of the War, the secession of the Southern states, descriptions of significant battles, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s criminal behavior, black Confederates, Robert E. Lee’s surrender, the everyday life of a Confederate soldier, and Confederate weaponry. Seabrook also provides detailed information on the many suppressed elements of the War, including discussions on the Constitution, politics, and American history, covering “politically incorrect” facts that your child will never hear in school.
Profusely illustrated (with black and white pictures that can be colored), this children’s version of Seabrook’s blockbuster, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!, explodes the Northern fairy tales that were created to hide the Truth about the War for Southern Independence and the countless atrocities committed by the Union. Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children’s Guide to the Civil War, the result of some twenty years of study and research, will not only help educate your child about the real Civil War, it will also teach them about the traditional values that have always been so important here in Dixie: a love of God, country, and family, respect for our Southern heritage, pride in our Confederate history, and a reverence for our Southern ancestors. Adults will benefit from reading Seabrook’s South-friendly book as well, especially non-Southerners who are interested in learning more about the Southern view of Lincoln’s War. Includes a comprehensive glossary, index, and bibliography. Foreword is by Al Benson Jr., publisher of The Copperhead Chronicle, former editor of The Christian Educator, and author of Lincoln’s Marxists (with Walter D. Kennedy). Like Seabrook’s other books on the War, Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is destined to become a standard in American literature.
An attractive, unique, affordable, and popular tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both young Civil War buffs and adult educators alike, Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is the perfect addition to any retail outlet, including not only bookstores, but Civil War sites, historic houses, museum gift stores, antique shops, B&Bs, tack shops, motorcycle shops, and gun stores.
