Overview

"Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!" is the book that every Civil War house, museum, gift shop, and Website has been waiting for, and that every Civil War buff and student of history has been asking for! Popular Southern historian and award-winning Tennessee author Lochlainn Seabrook sets the record straight in this easy-to-read, well documented handbook that confronts the North's many falsehoods about the American Civil War. Broken into convenient chapters, such as "Cause of the War," "Secession," "Slavery," "The Abolition Movement," "Jefferson Davis," "Abraham Lincoln," "The Emancipation Proclamation," "The Union and Blacks," "Yankee War Crimes," "Prisons," and "The Confederate Flag" (among many others), this exposé of Yankee anti-South propaganda has the power to heal. For in reeducating the world about Lincoln's War it will give Northerners a better understanding of the conflict itself, while making Southerners, of all races and political persuasions, proud to be Southern. Read the sensational racially-inclusive book that everyone's talking about - the book that blows the lid off Yankee mythology - and learn the Truth for yourself! Contains over 1,000 endnotes and a 700-book bibliography, and is endorsed by the League of the South and numerous other pro-South organizations and individuals. Lochlainn Seabrook is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal. Foreword is by African-American educator and Sons of Confederate Veterans member Nelson W. Winbush, the grandson of Louis Napoleon Nelson, just one of the hundreds of thousands of black Confederate soldiers who fought for the South. Blurbs by Thomas Moore (Chairman, the Southern National Congress), Ronny Mangrum (President of The Green Cannon Tennessee Flag Conservation Foundation; Adjutant for Roderick, Forrest's War Horse Camp 2072, Sons of Confederate Veterans; Former Heritage Violations Chairman for Tennessee Division, SCV), Timothy D. Manning (Executive Director, "The Southern Partisan Reader"), J. T. Thompson (Executive Director, Lotz House Museum, Franklin, Tennessee), Scott Bowden (five-time award-winning historian and author of "Last Chance for Victory: Robert E. Lee and the Gettysburg Campaign"), and Barbara Marthal (African-American educator, lecturer, Civil War reenactor, and member of the Tennessee Society Order of the Confederate Rose).

    One of the best Civil War books ever!

    Tens of thousands of books have been written about the War Between the States, and I have read more of them than I can count - mostly written from a Northern perspective. When I discovered this volume, "Everything you were taught about the Civil War is wrong, ask a Southerner," by Lochlainn Seabrook, it immediately went to the top of my list of favorites. Being an author myself, with six published books to my credit, I must admit that I envy the ability of Seabrook to express himself on the printed page in a way that is easy to understand, yet powerful and thought provoking. I had a very hard time putting it down, and I've found myself going back to read many passages again and again.

    Actually, if your reading schedule demands that you put this book down before you finish reading it cover to cover, that's okay too. Each of the chapters can stand alone, making it an excellent book for either browsing or for reading straight through.

    In the introduction, historian and author Lochlainn Seabrook, makes this bold assertion: ". slavery started in the North, abolition began in the South, Abraham Lincoln was a rabid white racist, Jefferson Davis adopted a black child, 95 percent of Southern blacks supported the Confederacy, and the Yanks started the way, a conflict that was illegal from start to finish." Then, in the next 22 chapters he makes his case in a manner which no intellectually honest person can easily refute. Seabrook states much more than just his personal opinions. He backs up every page with extensive notes and bibliography, quoting primary sources instead of just rehashing the words and prejudices of court historians.

    The introduction to the book is written by the distinguished black educator from Memphis, Tennessee, Nelson W. Winbush, who said, ""I'm proud to be a real grandson, having in my possession the Confederate Battle Flag that draped my grandfather's coffin, a reunion jacket and cap, numerous newspaper articles and reunion pictures. I was five when he passed and I still remember war stories as told me by my grandfather." Another thing I liked about the book is that it closes with a very practical list, including contacts, entitled "How you can help preserve the South." I found this very helpful.

    I must admit that this book made me angry. Having been born in the Midwest, reared mostly in the South, and living much of my adult life in the North, I was taught, from elementary school through college, only a very one-sided version of the "Civil War." I wish I had discovered this book and others like it much earlier.

    The last three words of the title, "Ask a Southerner," is not always the best advice. The sad fact is that the majority of Southerners learn their own history from textbooks written by Northern authors, taught by politically correct teachers and professors - blindly passing down the same misconceptions and prejudices from one generation to another. All Americans would benefit from reading "Everything you were taught about the Civil War is wrong." Prepare to be challenged - enlightened - and maybe even made angry that you weren't taught these truths before.
