In fact, according to Lincoln s own words, nothing could be further from the truth. After reading this eye-opening book, you ll be asking yourself the question: Why then does Lincoln continue to be annually voted America s best, favorite, and most important president by people of all ages, races, religions, and political persuasions? The answer - well-known to Southerners for the past 150 years - is that the real Lincoln has been carefully concealed from us by his faithful worshipers, the Lincolnites, some who are simply uninformed, others who will stop at nothing to keep you from learning the facts about our sixteenth chief executive and his unconstitutional, unnecessary, and unjustifiable war. In this handy Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition of The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln, Southern historian and award-winning Tennessee author Lochlainn Seabrook closely examines the politically incorrect statements they don t want you to know. Included here, among some 230 footnoted entries, are Lincoln s controversial, even un-American, views on his presidency, the government, the U.S. Constitution, states rights, the Union, his war on the South, abolition, slavery, colonization, African-Americans, Mexicans, mulattos, the Confederacy, the Southern people, his Emancipation Proclamation, Jesus, the Bible, Christianity, and more. This is an indispensable work for those interested in the American Civil War, for without a true and complete understanding of Lincoln one will never have a true and complete understanding of the conflict itself. An attractive, unique, affordable, and popular tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both casual Civil War buffs and hardcore Civil War scholars alike, The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln is the perfect addition to any retail outlet, including not only bookstores, but Civil War sites, historic houses, museum gift stores, antique shops, B&Bs, tack shops, motorcycle shops, and gun stores.
