If you’re a Southern parent who’s fed up with the Yankee
myths, distortions, lies, and anti-South propaganda your
child is being taught at school about the Civil War, then
Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is for you.
Award-winning author and Southern historian Lochlainn
Seabrook, one of the world’s leading pro-South writers, has
created an incomparable guide specifically for Southern
children, one that teaches them the Truth about Lincoln’s
War - from the South’s perspective!
Written for ages 8-12 (grades 2-6), the book is conveniently
divided into six sections and thirty-seven chapters, and covers all of
the salient facts and events of the War. Included are
chapters on the causes that led up to the conflict, the real
origins of American slavery, the truth about Southern
slavery, the start of the War, the secession of the Southern
states, descriptions of significant battles, the
Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s
criminal behavior, black and Indian Confederates, Robert E. Lee’s surrender, the everyday life of a
Confederate soldier, and Confederate weaponry.
Seabrook also provides detailed information on the many
suppressed elements of the War, including discussions on the
Constitution, politics, and American history, covering
"politically incorrect" facts that your child will never
hear in school.
Profusely illustrated (with black and white pictures that
can be colored), this children’s version of Seabrook’s
blockbuster, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil
Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!, explodes the Northern fairy
tales that were created to hide the Truth about the War for Southern Independence
and the countless atrocities committed by the Union.
Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children’s Guide
to the Civil War, the result of some twenty years of study
and research, will not only help educate your child about
the real Civil War, it will also teach them about the
traditional values that have always been so important here
in Dixie: a love of God, country, and family, respect for
our Southern heritage, pride in our Confederate history, and
a reverence for our Southern ancestors. Adults will
benefit from reading Seabrook’s South-friendly book as well,
especially non-Southerners who are interested in learning
more about the Southern view of Lincoln’s War.
Includes a comprehensive glossary, index, and bibliography.
Foreword is by Al Benson Jr., publisher of the Copperhead
Chronicle, former editor of The Christian Educator, and
author of Lincoln's Marxists (with
Walter D. Kennedy).
Like many of Seabrook’s two dozen other books on the War, Honest Jeff and
Dishonest Abe is destined to become a standard in
An attractive, unique, affordable, and popular
tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both young Civil
War buffs and adult educators alike, Honest
Jeff and Dishonest Abe 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.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
"It seems to me that in the battle for the preservation of
Confederate and Southern heritage and culture we need to be
aware of some of the resources that are out there for folks
to utilize. Too often we lose the battle because we
show up unprepared to deal with an adversary that has been
trashing our heritage for 150 years and more and we just
found out about the battle last month. So we march
into the fray, confident because we now know some truth, and
we get stomped on because our enemies have books and
publications with over a century and a half of lies
contained in them while we have something we got off the
Internet last week.
"We need to start off by training our youngsters
in the truth, and that won’t happen in a couple of weeks, or
even a couple of years. But we have to start and we
have to continue to work at it—pointing out Yankee/Marxist
untruths and balancing them off with facts. If you can
start your kids off young, so much the better.
"A really good age group to begin with is ages
8-12, or grades 2-6 in school. Kids are old enough to
begin to learn history at that point and there is a new book
out now that will enable them to begin. Written by
Lochlainn Seabrook, this new book is appropriately titled
Honest Jeff & Dishonest Abe—A Southern Children’s Guide to
the Civil War. It was published by Sea Raven
Press, SeaRavenPress.com of Franklin, Tennessee. At a
level appropriate for 8-12 year olds this book deals with
the slavery question and who was responsible for slavery in
America. It deals with the abolitionists both North
and South (true abolition started in the South not the
North) and it deals with the real reasons for the war and
the personalities involved, including terrorists like John
Brown and dictatorial personalities such as Abraham Lincoln.
"Books such as this were unavailable when our
children were this age but had this one been around our kids
would have used it. For a beginning study about the
history and reasons for the War this is a good place to
start. It is a foundation you can build on. The
book sells for $24.95." - Al Benson Jr., author of
FROM AMAZON: 5 out of 5 stars. "A wonderful reference
book for young and old. Honest Jeff and Dishonest
Abe is a must for every home. It is definitely a
keeper. You might lend it to a very special friend,
but you will make sure you get this book back. I will
use it as a reference when I write or talk about this period
of our country's history. I plan to purchase extra
copies for gifts. Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe
is proof that history written by a courageous and truthful
author is far from dull!" - Johnette Galt
FROM FACEBOOK: "Should be a good book for my home schooled
grandkids." - Ronny Mangrum, Sons of Confederate
Veterans, Franklin, Tennessee
