    Eye Opener!

    While reading this enlightening book, I continually asked myself and others how in the world has the accepted thought of Democrats being the party of civil rights and the Republicans the ones who are against come about? I still would like to know the answer. After you read the history of the civil rights movement beginning with our founders the Democrats voted against everything that would give African Americans there rights. They even voted against punishment toward lynchings back in the day. Do we need to rewrite some of our history books? we certainly do on this subject. Read it for yourself and learn the truth about the real voting record on civil rights. Our founding fathers were not racists. They did what they could to give the black man his equal rights, but were blocked every which way by the democrats. Please read and be amazed and ashamed how our history has been misrepresented.

    Unrevised History

    This well written and extremely well researched book follows the political history of Blacks in America from before the American Revolution to present day. The history of the Republican and Democratic parties in relation to civil rights was amazing. There were numerous prominent men and women of African descent listed in the book, that were never mentioned in the history courses I took in school. I feel so strongly that this book should be in every public and school library that I am donating copies to the libraries in my town. A warning, read this book ONLY IF you are open minded enough to modify your ideas of Civil Rights history in America.

    The truth about Black History after the civil war.

    Fact based and well referenced historical history of the True history of black Americans and their contributions to this country. Much of this is not presented in schools, or at the Arkansas historical museum that primarily extolled the virtues of the confederates and Democratic Party from then to the current day.

    Fascinating

    Why don't we learn this stuff in school? We think of slavery when we think of black people. We haven't been taught how they were involved in the formation of our country. We haven't been taught that they were in Congress even before the Civil War. This is a must read for everyone. It's interesting and can be read quickly. David Barton is an amazing historian. If I knew just a quarter of what he knows, I'd be a genius.

    Jaw-dropping information

    This book is not only full of information I never heard before but it is one of the best documented books with 40 pages of references. That's amazing when you consider the book is only 138 pages long. It is not the history I was taught in the 40's and 50's. It's the history we should be teaching our kids. 123go

    I Also Recommend:

    The Republican Party wanted to return to the principles of freed

    The Republican Party wanted to return to the principles of freedom and equality first set forth in the governing of pro-slavery.  So how did all that change. Democrats being for the Civil Rights of "We shall over come,someday." 
    The book is very good. Before any one get's to choose a party he/she needs to know the history of that party.

    PHENOMENAL, PURELY PHENOMENAL. Every American should read this,

    PHENOMENAL, PURELY PHENOMENAL. Every American should read this, especially black and or Democratic Americans. It will be an eye-opener indeed!

    Also, I would love to teach this on a college level. This should be mandatory learning for every American!

    This book is an exceptional and essential addition to any U.S. h

    This book is an exceptional and essential addition to any U.S. history class. The heroic African Americans cited, quoted, and discussed in this book, largely from Congressional records, are suspiciously missing from almost every other text used in courses I attended, especially at the university level. Omitting them, as well as their heroic participation in government, in the face of the newly founded terrorist organization, the KKK (designed to suppress Republican votes, both black and white), is criminal! Barton fastidiously cites his sources so that you can follow up with your own research. Highly recommended.
