Overview

"Despite the spinning of romantic historians, hard evidence indicates that the invasion of the South is the American enormity."
—David Aiken, editor of A City Laid Waste: The Capture, Sack, and Destruction of the City of Columbia

"Millions of Americans devoutly believe that Abraham Lincoln's war 'to preserve the union and free the slaves' was a righteous mission that forms the high point of our country's history. Mr. Cisco, concisely and without emotion, portrays the extent to which that war was waged with gratuitous brutality, persecution, terror, destruction, and murder against the civilian population of the South—free and slave, black and white, rich and poor. And he leaves no doubt that these war crimes were not incidental and accidental but were deliberate, pervasive, and sanctioned at the highest level with malice aforethought. Americans who read War Crimes Against Southern Civilians will have a more sober and true, and less self-righteous, understanding of our country."
—Clyde N. Wilson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of South Carolina

"At last the South is recovering sufficiently from intellectual imperialism for her real scholars and intellectuals to mount a countercharge. Academic history has for many years been written from the standpoint of the war's victors, both in the North and South, but that stranglehold is finally ending. Cisco's volume is yet another volley in that war for truth. Every seeker of the real story behind the sanitised myths of American history should read this book."
—James Everett Kibler, author of Memory's Keep and Our Fathers' Fields
