Publisher's Summary

You were lied to about the nature, character, and cause of the American Civil War, but that is just the start. The entire South - its people, culture, history, customs, both past and present - has been and continues to be lied about and demonized by the unholy trinity of the American establishment: academia, Hollywood, and the media.

In the midst of the anti-South hysteria currently infecting the American psyche - the banning of flags, charges of hate and racism, the removal and attempted removal of Confederate monuments, the renaming of schools, vandalism of monuments and property displaying the Confederate Battle Flag, and even physical assaults, albeit rarely at present, on people who display the symbols of the South - Shotwell Publishing offers this unapologetic, unreconstructed, pro-South book with the hope that it will reach those who are left that are not afraid to question the sanity of this cultural purge and the veracity of its narrative concerning the South.

Too Much Opinion, Not Enough Facts

The author spends most of his time making claims about falsehoods maintained by a northern perspective on the civil war but unfortunately provides very few historical examples. This feels more like an hour long rant than a strong case for historical inaccuracies. I was hoping for more facts and examples.

Absolute hogwash and ignorance!

Absolute hogwash and ignorance! This literary work distorts the true essence of what happened and why.

It is a detestable, pseudo-intellectual, and lame attempt to explain away the immoral depravity of the southern desire to hold, abuse, exploit, rape, and dsstroy slaves (mentally, socially, culturally, economically, and even physically). No amount of twisted rationale to make a case for pride in all the above is right, righteous, or commendable. The southern system as it was needed to cease immediately. To this very day, the damaging reprocusions and ideologies of that southern culture as it relates to minorities, especially African-Americans, still aids, abetts, and proliferates hatred and systematic & undercover discrimination.

As for the book's literary style and the performance of the narrator apart from the content as spoken to above, it was well written. The author made his cases, though disillusioned, very clearly and concisely. I enjoyed listening to this book and getting a peek inside the mind of one who more or less defends the southern culture of old.

Lies My Teacher Told MeL.org

Very informative and inciteful. The author used facts of the time to enforce his viewpoint, a good reference to stand your ground when debating the merits and causes of the civil war.

CAN FREEDOM LIVE IN THE MODERN AMERICA?

This book will taste fowl to the leftist federalism tromping the freedom of true Constitutional Freedoms. The federalist mentality is embedded in the leftist brain as that of a dog which has no mind to reflect on its actions.
-
Those who allow the mind to reflect upon federal tyranny are immediately branded as an enemy of the state.
-
This falsetto democracy will self destruct into socialism, or worse, a breed of fascism.
CAN FREEDOM LIVE IN THE MODERN AMERICA? We shall see...

A Welcome Work.

After requesting Shotwell Publishing to produce audio format books, we finally have the best work for the first! I am grateful for this move by Shotwell, and look forward to the next. I will be purchasing these valuable works of American History, and listening to them over and over. Thank you again, and keep up the good work.
