Nearly everything you’ve been taught about Abraham Lincoln comes from pro-North authors and publishers. So if you want to know who he really was, you’ll need to read about him from the South’s perspective.

In Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View, award-winning author Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook provides an in-depth look at our sixteenth president as seen through the eyes of Dixie. Revealed is a man completely unknown to most Americans, both North and South; an unscrupulous demagogue and anti-Christian liberal who broke hundreds of laws; ignored and even subverted the Constitution; used money from the Yankee slave trade to fund his war; sanctioned the murder of both Southern blacks (who would not enlist in the Union army) and harmless Southern noncombatants (including women and children); had tens of thousands of innocent Northerners arrested, imprisoned, and sometimes tortured and executed without charge or trial; rigged the 1860 and 1864 elections; confiscated and destroyed private property; censored governmental debate over secession; and more. Throughout all of this, Southern historians estimate that some 3 million Americans, of all races, died in direct consequence of his actions.

While he publically declared that his goal was to “preserve the Union,” he actually destroyed it. And when he later tried to alter the character of the War with his fake and illegal Emancipation Proclamation, he was formulating plans behind closed doors to deport all blacks out of America, “back to their native land,” as he phrased it earlier on August 21, 1858. Lincoln’s true agenda, as Colonel Seabrook shows, was to demolish the idea of states’ rights in the South and install big government in the North. And, as the staunch supporter of American apartheid himself stated repeatedly, he was willing to do this with or without ending slavery.

With nearly 3,000 footnotes and a 1,000-book bibliography, this, the fourth revised Civil War Sesquicentennial edition of Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View, is an important, well documented work that will appeal to all those interested in authentic U.S. and Confederate history. You will never look at Lincoln or his War the same way again. The Foreword is by Clint Johnson, author of the bestseller The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South. Available in paperback and hardcover.

Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!

His other titles include: The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn’t Want You to Know About Lincoln’s War; Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America’s Oldest Political Tradition; Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie’s Southern Cross; Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy; Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!; A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest; Give This Book to a Yankee: A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners; and Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children’s Guide to the Civil War.

Editorial Reviews

"I just finished Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook's book 'Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View.' Excellent read, could hardly put it down. If only the great mass of the public could know the facts as related by this book, they would finally know, once and for all: the South was right, the North was horribly, criminally, and thoroughly wrong!" - GARY WALTRIP"This in-depth book by Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, 'Abraham Lincoln, The Southern View - Demythologizing America's Sixteenth President,' is one of those books that gives readers another view of Lincoln, the man, the president, the politician. Colonel Seabrook has found historical references that show that Lincoln wasn't as kind as many people have been led to believe. He wasn't as willing to welcome black people into roles as equal citizens as many have been led to believe. He wasn't quite as 'Honest Abe' as many have been led to believe. . . . Was Lincoln the nation's greatest president as we have been told? Read this book before making up your mind!" - CLINT JOHNSON, author of 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South'"This is an enlightening book that is very well documented. The spin doctors have been burying the truth about Abraham Lincoln for a long time. Abraham Lincoln was not a saint but a politician with a political agenda. Abraham Lincoln was willing to do what ever was necessary to obtain his goals, just like Adolph Hitler did some seventy years later in Germany. 'Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View' has received our highest possible rating." - ED PORTER, the Lone Star Book Review"I've used Colonel Seabrook's book 'Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View' as a source several times to squash attempts by people to portray the War as being about slavery. When they hear the truth the room suddenly gets real quiet!" - KEN KELLER
