Meet the Author

Descendants of Civil War soldiers, twin brothers James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy have held posts with the Sons of Confederate Veterans for several years. Both also are founding members of the League of the South. In their spare time, the brothers enjoy participating in reenactments of Civil War battles. They are also the authors of The South Was Right! and Why Not Feedom!: America's Revolt Against Big Government, both published by Pelican.

Born in Copiah County, Mississippi, James Ronald “Ron” Kennedy is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, as his ancestors fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Kennedy, along with his brother, Walter Donald “Donnie” Kennedy, wrote The South Was Right!, exploring the political and social impact of the Civil War on both the South and the United States Constitution. Why Not Freedom!: America’s Revolt Against Big Government picks up where their first book ends with further discussions on states’ rights and individual freedom. The Kennedy brothers’ third book, Was Jefferson Davis Right?, outlines the life and trial of Jefferson Davis. Ron Kennedy is also the coauthor of Nullifying Tyranny: Creating Moral Communities in an Immoral Society and Reclaiming Liberty, also published by Pelican Publishing Company. Kennedy is the director of risk management for a Louisiana insurance company. He lives in Mandeville, Louisiana, with his wife and four children, including a fourth direct generation of twins.
