Abraham Lincoln - The Southern View
by Lochlainn Seabrook
Nearly everything you’ve been taught about Abraham Lincoln comes from Northern authors and publishers. But if you want to know who he really was, you’ll need to read about him from the Southern perspective. In Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View, unreconstructed Southern historian and award-winning Tennessee author Lochlainn Seabrook provides an in-depth look at our sixteenth president as seen through the eyes of Dixie.
Revealed is a man completely unknown to most Americans, both North and South; a crafty, ultra-liberal, unscrupulous, outlaw-politician who broke hundreds of laws; ignored and even subverted the Constitution; used money from slavery to fund his war; sanctioned the murder of both Southern blacks (who would not enlist in the Union army) and innocent Southern noncombatants (including women and children); had tens of thousands of innocent Northerners arrested, imprisoned, and sometimes tortured and executed, without trial; rigged the 1860 and 1864 elections; confiscated and destroyed private property; censored governmental debate over secession; and more. Throughout all of this, Southern historians estimate that some 3 million Americans, of all races, died in direct consequence of his actions.
While he publically declared that his goal was to “preserve the Union,” he actually destroyed it. And when he later tried to alter the character of the War with his fake and illegal Emancipation Proclamation, he was formulating plans behind closed doors to deport all blacks out of America, “back to their native land,” as he phrased it on August 21, 1858. Lincoln’s true agenda, as Mr. Seabrook shows, was to demolish the idea of states’ rights in the South and install big government in the North. And, as the staunch supporter of American apartheid himself stated repeatedly, he was willing to do this with or without ending slavery.
With over 2,000 footnotes and a 700-book bibliography, Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View is an important work for all those interested in authentic U.S. and Confederate history. You will never look at Lincoln or his War the same way again. Lochlainn Seabrook is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal. The Foreword is by Clint Johnson, author of the bestseller The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South.
