    "The Real Lincoln" Thomas DiLorenzio, economics professor at Loyola University Maryland Sellinger School of Business.

    One of "The books". Reached #2 on Amazon and still has brisk sales. 84% like this book. Sales remain brisk sixteen years after publication.

    Also active on YouTube. See also "The Problem With Socialism" 69% of millennials polled favored having a socialist as president.

    Should be required reading for all those who stand against ANTIFA and their assault on American history and the destruction of Confederate monuments and Southern heritage.

    Wake up America. Join the NRA and VOTE this election to defeat the Damnocrat takeover.

    The reviews are interesting, and, go figure, highly polarized. I have enough present day drama, don't need to go re-invent 1860. Hell, I'm still pissing on LBJ, my favorite democrat to drag through the mud.

    I have read it and reviewed what I have read many times. Same with Lincoln Unmasked by the same author, and I have told about it in many, many posts.

    Hey, aren't you the one that recommended "The South Was Right"? That was the most boring, lying, racist piece of trash I couldn't force myself to finish. It did have the most exclamation point's per page I've ever seen in a "Fact" book, though.

    I have recommended it, and continue to do so. Please point out the "lying, racist", parts.

    Chapter. Page. Paragraph. Sentence.

    I will wait...

    If you lend me any one of those books, I'll try to read it. I'm not going to spend money on them, though.

    I have it on my book stack but haven't read it yet. I bought a bunch of Civil war related books before they ban them or change all the words to mean something else. Buy physical books also. The digital book burning will be real easy. I kick myself every time I buy a kindle book. I try to only buy stuff that doesn't matter digitally.

    I lied about not spending money on it. Amazon had it for $7.50 with prime. I ordered it. Couldn't resist at that price.

    You don't really think I'd waste my time ordering from the library again, do you" "Most slave's loved slavery. They had no worries. Plenty of good food, most plantations had Doctors in residence to look after their health." "The Yankees were all cowards, their officer's always drunk, they often threw down their rifles and ran at the sight of a mounted southern cavalier." "Thousand of slave's volunteered to fight for the south." How could a "slave" volunteer for anything? They were property, right? And the footnote references, by people I've never heard of, that "proved" this drivel. Hey, don't take my word for it, get it from the library and attempt to read it. DON'T BUY IT!

    The south leaders own writings tell us everything.

    Better have a look too at Lincoln's own writings and the writings of many prominent people in government, the newspaper industry, and the general public in the North too if my assumptions about your statement that "The south's own leaders writings tell us everything" are correct. Not to mention his horrific dismantlement of the Constitution and use of dictatorial powers never granted him.*

    *Well documented in "The Real Lincoln", "Lincoln Unmasked", and "The South was Right!"

    See also "The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln." listed in the book section.

    You can take your shots at Lincoln, that does not change a thing about the Confederacy's motivation for separation as outlined in their own writings.

    Not taking shots. I provided documented historical facts that prove beyond doubt Lincoln's views on blacks, slavery, and the treatment of slaves mirrored the majority of the U.S. population of the day.

    Will address this further soon.
