Publisher's Summary

"Lincoln as He Really Was, by Charles T. Pace, is a refreshingly truthful antidote to the standard Lincoln mythology. It is refreshing because it is so fact-based and well-documented and devoted to historical truth. Lincoln as He Really Was is not your typical boring, voluminous biography filled with thousands of disconnected (and often irrelevant) facts dug up by a dozen graduate research assistants and published by a card-carrying member of the Ivy League Lincoln cult. It is the first work since Edgar Lee Masters’ 1931 classic Lincoln the Man to attempt to reveal the truth about what kind of man Abraham Lincoln really was." (Dr. Thomas J. DiLorenzo, author of The Real Lincoln; Lincoln Unmasked; Hamilton’s Curse; and The Problem with Socialism)

It shows Lincoln as the scoundrel he was and not a saint.

It was real history not a myth. The book casts much needed light on the true evil character of Lincoln, who was without a doubt the worst president in American history. He owns this country’s most tragic episode that claimed more American lives than all other of our wars combined. Yet, he’s revered as a deity. This book dethrones Lincoln from Mt. Olympus as he so justly deserves.

Shocked

Shocked! Is there not great irony that he has been heralded as being something he was not, for that tells us, it is good to be good, if it was not, we would have been celebrating his unscrupulous behaviors all these years and his wife could've had peace of mind, knowing it's only silly naïve weaklings who eschew high moral standards and believe in a judgment day. Thanks to the author for writing this book. I can't wait for my dad to read it. Can somebody get this book to Larry Arnn over there at Hillsdale?

Countering propaganda of the Cult of Lincoln: Eye !opening for some, and intellectually fulfilling for ALL truth-seekers

This book is an essential emollient for a mind that’s been marinated in the UFT’s Leftarded Yankee secular religion. It’ll help you pry the lies from your thoughts, and arm you to challenge the illiberal Marxist presentist bullshitters, obsessed with trashing everything Southern. Deo Vindice!

Worth the listen! Fort Sumter section is great!

Charles T. Pace has recently come out with a wonderful short book on Abraham Lincoln's life from childhood to the resupply boat headed to Fort Sumter. Abraham Lincoln, it can be concluded, was a political animal. In a way he was an abolitionist when it suited him, just as he was a Christian when it suited him. Pace destroys any mythology surrounding young Abraham Lincoln as a backwoodsman splitting rails. If anything, Lincoln was characterized in the words of his contemporaries as being "lazy." He was not much of a student either. At least not in the classical sense. The little he did read suited a pragmatic political end. Pace hangs the responsibility for the war on the shoulders of Lincoln, where it likely belongs due to his political maneuvering and rejection of all conciliatory efforts. The chapter on Fort Sumter is worth the price of the book. In his own words, and those of his contemporaries, the real Lincoln was a far cry from the downright falsehood spun about him today.

You may disagree, but prove him wrong.

For people who aren't interested in details, they need a white hat- black hat narrative. That's never set well with me and I've always thought things didn't quite add up. Pace's book corrects the balance.

Lincoln the Tyrant

Liar, murderer, pure politician, megalomaniac, tyrant - these words and this work dishearteningly sum up Lincoln through and through. What a waste of a human.

Excellent Biographical Work

Dr. Pace does a terrific job revealing the person that Lincoln really was. Drawing on early records of interaction with those acquainted with him, we can more easily understand his personal state of mind (i.e, those things that motivated him). At the end of these revelations, it is very clear that Lincoln was a selfish and self-centered politician; larded with ambition. I also feel that Bill Izard did a great job presenting the text.

Bitterness Over the Civil War

This book was written by someone from the south who is still bitter over the Civil War. The author blames Lincoln, alone, for the Civil War and does not admit to any inflammatory incidents done by the southern states. The author holds the southern states as victims of Lincoln and not of their own lack of morality, humanity, or Christian Charity.
