If you think the 19th-Century Ku Klux Klan was a violent racist organization that was founded and headed by Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest after the American Civil War, you've been completely deceived by anti-South historians! Don't let the Liberal mainstream fool you. Learn the truth about one of America's greatest figures and the patriotic anti-carpetbag organization that emerged in late 1865 in Nathan Bedford Forrest and the Ku Klux Klan: Yankee Myth, Confederate Fact, by award-winning historian and Forrest scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, author of nine books and a screenplay on the General. Excerpted from Colonel Seabrook's popular title, A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest, this book contains over 100 pages of new material, along with rare photos and illustrations, official reports, and important eyewitness accounts by those who lived during the period from 1861 to 1877.
To understand why the original KKK emerged and why Forrest and the South supported it, the author covers the Reconstruction era in detail, revealing the crimes, outrages, and unconstitutional activities of the Liberal North and its Radical South-hating politicians. The reader will learn that what Colonel Seabrook calls the "Reconstruction KKK" (which is in no way connected to the modern KKK founded in 1915) was a conservative organization, was intended to be temporary (which is why it lasted only three years), had thousands of black supporters, assistants, and members, and was formed to protect Southerners of all races from the North's injurious and vindictive Reconstruction measures. The reader will also discover that not only was there an all-black Ku Klux Klan in Nashville, but many of the white Yankees who came South as part of the North's Reconstruction program were members as well.
In order to procure votes, more easily control the populace, destroy traditional American values, and implement their progressive agenda, early race-baiting Liberals like Abraham Lincoln, Thaddeus Stevens, and Wendell Phillips began promoting a fake "Southern race war," a falsehood that's being perpetuated to this day by modern Liberals. As part of this effort Forrest and the Reconstruction KKK have been smeared with a mountain of lies, slander, and anti-South propaganda. Why? To hide the truth! Colonel Seabrook's book uncovers the facts, helping to heal the racial divide between the European-American community and the African-American community.
Nathan Bedford Forrest and the Ku Klux Klan restores Forrest's reputation after being unfairly tarnished by a century and a half of attacks by the uneducated. A must-read for all those who are in search of the facts about the General and the courageous organization that saved the South from the blight of Reconstruction. This unique book includes an index, bibliography, reference notes, and a comprehensive appendices section. The latter provides the full texts of the two Freedmen's Bureau Acts and the four Reconstruction Acts, as well as speeches, stories, and prayers concerning the period, all which add context, meaning, understanding, and interest to an invaluable work.
