Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
For one hundred and forty-eight years American students have been fed a one-sided version of the history concerning slavery and Lincolns war. Not that what has been written is not necessarily untrue or inaccurate. It is quite simply, incomplete. We are all spoon fed with the theory that millions of Southerners, white and black, were killed, maimed, starved and made homeless in order to free the slaves. Also, we are told that Lincolns War was unavoidable, because the South wanted a fight and started a fight. Really? Was there no other way to resolve the problems of the day? Did no one try? Was the South the only place in North America where slavery existed? Did the South import their slaves, or did someone else ship them through the middle passage? Were peace commissioners sent to Washington to sue for peace? Did the South declare war on the North, or just ask to be let alone? Was any effort made to acquire a cease fire during the four gory years of this most unnecessary war? This book reveals many facts we have never been taught about these two subjects. The sources and facts quoted are referenced in a bibliography which relies mainly on Northern and Union records and books.
