OUR COMPANY ”A highly recommended publisher that specializes in combating the whitewashed, fake, anti-South "history" that has been promulgated since 1865. I continually advise Americans to get a real education on history, not the nonsense they pass off in public schools. It is very much relevant today. There is no understanding of today without yesterday's lessons.” - JERRY D.

I educate my children to understand that some racists have high-jacked the flag and use it to express their cause. We read books from Sea Raven Press that educate and enlighten all who want to know the truth about the flag, the South, and the Civil War, so that this kind of ignorance and misunderstanding is understood for what it is.” - DOMINGA BRITTON (Texas) “Love the books from Sea Raven Press.  Re-reading one of my favorites now, The Old Rebel.” - PEGGY GLEICHMAN (New Jersey) “Love your books.  I tell people about them.  God bless the South.” - HOWARD BUMPUS “I give Sea Raven Press 5 stars, excellent service.” - JAMES, FIVE STAR AMAZON REVIEW “The books I have from Sea Raven Press are great and I’ll be ordering more soon!” - BRYAN RIVERS “My Sea Raven Press books were delivered in good order.

Hope to do business again.” - EBAY REVIEW “I highly recommend Sea Raven Press to all who share the high values upheld with such distinction by those who gave their lives for their cause in the War Between the States, and for those who continue to base their perspective upon those lofty values.” - MARTIN LEE COLLIN OUR PRIMARY AUTHOR COLONEL LOCHLAINN SEABROOK “Lochlainn Seabrook is a genius writer!” - STEVEN WARD “We get asked a lot what books we use and read. We don’t do many modern historians, but we make an exception for some, and Lochlainn Seabrook is one of them. His works are completely well researched from original documents, and heavily footnored and documented.  Any books from Mr. Seabrook are a must have for anyone undertaking serious research into the truth of Lincoln’s War on the South.” - SOUTHERN HISTORICAL SOCIETY (Facebook) "Mr. Seabrook is the best of the Southern writers." - DANA HORTON MAKEPEACE "Lochlainn Seabrook is one of the finest authors on true history in this century. His books should be on every student's desk." - RONDA SAMMONS RENO (President Georgia Society Order of Confederate Rose) "Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook is the premier Confederate defender. He is the most well researched and heavily documented author I’ve ever read. His books are must haves. Everything he writes should be required reading! I assure you, you won't be disappointed. One simply cannot go wrong with his books. Cannot go wrong. Mr. Seabrook is awesome! It’s no wonder he won the UDC’s Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal. I have never read any other author as well researched and footnoted as him. Never. Thank God for Sea Raven Press. Thank God! . . . Mr. Seabrook is second to none. I simply cannot do without him. Cannot.  I’ve been in love with Mr. Seabrook for almost 5 years now. His quick wit and logic is enough reason to purchase his books. But the mere fact that he’s so extensively researched is icing on the cake. Mr. Seabrook is my favorite, hands down.” - LANI BURNETTE RINKEL (cofounder of Mid-South Flaggers) “Mr. Seabrook’s work is very well researched and documented.” - BULL TOM FARTHING “Here in the North we Copperheads are gaining ground, one Lochlainn Seabrook book at a time!” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “I own several books written by Colonel Seabrook. I highly recommend them!” - PAUL SCOFIELD “I love all of Colonel Seabrook’s books. They are informative and enlightening, and his warm Southern hospitality writing style makes you feel right at home, especially if you’re from dear old Dixie!” - KEITH CRAVEN (Facebook) “I love Seabrook’s writings. LOVE!!!” - REBECCA DALRYMPLE (Facebook) “Read Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook’s books.  Within those pages are the weapons we need to fight those who put down the Confederacy.  Instead of just cursing at them, supply them with facts and dumbfound them.  They won’t know what to do or say.” - RANDY ARNOLD (Facebook) “Read Mr. Seabrook’s books.  Education is our best weapon against the idiots who disrespect our Confederate flag.” - RANDY ARNOLD (Facebook) GOOGLE REVIEW: “I read a lot of books and materials, and travel to many Civil War sites.  But I have been blown away by Lochlainn Seabrook’s small pamphlet books!  Incredible information and research for such small books!  In all I have purchased four books from Sea Raven Press: The Quotable Stonewall Jackson, The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln, Slavery 101, and Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!  I must say that I was in shock by the facts that Lochlainn Seabrook has uncovered about the four above mentioned titles!  Being from Pennsylvania we were never taught anything in school that cast the South and the Confederacy in a positive light!  Teachers in junior high and high school beat the same drum in our heads: that the North was good and the South was bad!  In a nutshell that was the timeworn pattern we were given!  Well I say if you want to learn the true facts, buy any of the above books!  Mr. Seabrook has done his homework and doesn’t present opinions.  He uses their own words and presents the facts as they were spoken over 150 years ago!  Thank you Lochlainn Seabrook for unearthing an amazing amount of information that I can’t believe was snuck under the rug!  It’s now out in the open for all to learn from.” - STEPHEN SCHRAMM (Pennsylvania) “Lochlain Seabrook's work is an absolute treasure of scholarship and historic scope.” - MARK WAYNE CUNNINGHAM (Kentucky) “These are great books by Colonel Seabrook.  He tells the truth!  We were taught in school how great Lincoln was.  He was not ‘Honest Abe.’” - FREDA JOHNSON COBB (Facebook) “At age 55 I began researching the Civil War for a project I was working on.  Imagine this Southern girl’s surprise when I learned that Lincoln and the Civil War was not at all what I was taught in history class!!!  I’m in the middle of my first Lochlainn Seabrook book. Oh my!!!! Should be required reading in the government schools. So grateful to know the truth! Keep writing Lochlainn!!! - REBECCA DALRYMPLE (Facebook) “I adore Mr. Seabrook’s style and I love his books.  I love an author that does proper research, and still finds a way to engage the reader.  Mr. Seabrook does an admirable job of both.  His love of the South is clearly conveyed.” - DONALD CAUL “Lochlainn Seabrook is a well thought of author.  I have had his books recommended to me on several occasions.” - SUSAN RICHARDSON “Glad I discovered Mr. Seabrook!  He’s my favorite author on the War!” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio) “Colonel Seabrook’s books are awesome and tell the real truth!!” - FREDA JOHNSON COBB (Facebook) “I love all of Colonel Seabrook’s books!” - DEBBIE SIDLE “Kudos to Lochlainn Seabrook who is a very good and informative professional truthful historian.  We need more like him! I have 8 of his books and want to get more.  His book Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is a great one for kids. I got it for my daughter. Seabrook’s books are very thorough, fully cited works.  He does not apologize for the Confederacy or the South.  Professionally done.  Very good and well researched” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “It is not easy to defend the Confederacy nowadays, as the anti-South hatred has been stoked to a degree greater than anytime since reconstruction.  It's as if a form of madness has spread across the nation like a plague.  The mere display of a Confederate flag results in sharp cries of outrage and anguish, with much posing and posturing by those who would defend us from  it. Most Americans don't remotely know or understand what happened in America between 1860 and 1877, the time period that includes Lincoln's war and the reconstruction that came afterwards.  However, the Northern version of the history of that time period is largely a lie, a self-serving, massive distortion of what actually happened and why.  I have discovered a Southern writer who explains what happened and why, one Lochlainn Seabrook of Sea Raven Press.  I just finished his book Abraham Lincoln:  the Southern View.  Next on my reading list is Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!  Both of these books are weighty tomes, 654 pages for the former, 1020 pages for the latter.  The book on Lincoln inflamed my feelings against the North, Lincoln and Yankeedom.  If I suddenly attained supernatural powers, I would restore the Confederate States of America immediately, then resurrect and hang Lincoln, Sherman, Grant and Sheridan for crimes against humanity.  Since I can't do that, I can continue to learn, and to propagate the truth, in the hopes that future generations may go looking for it and someday find it.  You should do the same.  Check out Sea Raven Press at their website.” - GARY WALTRIP AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “The books by Lochlainn Seabrook are so well researched. They tell the truth and the whole truth.” - ANONYMOUS “Lochlainn Seabrook: A stronger defender of the Confederacy and General Nathan Bedford Forrest you will not find.” - TARA FORREST OUR MOVIE "I believe that Lochlainn Seabrook’s feature film A Rebel Born is going to have a greater impact on patriotism than Mel Gibson’s Braveheart did in 1996." - MARK WAYNE CUNNINGHAM (Kentucky) OUR JEWELRY “I received the ‘Sea of Life Cross’ today.  The photo on their Webpage really doesn’t do this beautiful piece of jewelry justice.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!  The bright silver is enhanced by the cool, calm shades of amethyst, teal and topaz blue crystals, bringing to mind the colors of the shallow water in the Florida Keys.  This cross would make a great gift for an ocean addict or someone who just loves to be near water.” - TONI (California) OUR BUMPER STICKERS “Great stickers!” - FROM FACEBOOK OUR BOOKS CONFEDERATE FLAG FACTS: WHAT EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DIXIE’S SOUTHERN CROSS AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “A MUST READ BOOK”: “This extremely well researched title proves that the Confederate Battle Flag is not racist.” - ROBERT SCHWARTZ “I love this book.  It provides excellent ammunition to use against Liberals, Yankees, and scallywags alike!” - RANDY ARNOLD (Facebook) “It’s a great book! Two thumbs up!” - JARED JONES (Facebook) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDING THE GREAT BATTLE FLAG”: “Truth and nothing but the truth.  Puts to rest the old tired Yankee lies about this great flag.” - JAMES HALL “Great read.  Explains a lot!” - DANIEL C. COYLE AMAZON REVIEW, FOUR STARS: “Very informative.” - ARTHUR S. BROWN “This is a great book!” - KEITH CRAVEN (Facebook) “Excellent book.” - EBAY “Got it and reading it. It is excellent.  Great documents, well cited and fully explained. So far it’s five stars!” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “A great book to carry with you.  When some Liberal whines, pull out the book to find the relevant myth to debunk and watch them dig themselves into a hole.  Then hug them and tell them that knowledge is better than propaganda.” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “This book is very good and I wish more people would take the time and desire truth! Thank you, your service to us is known!” - ALIDA LOTT (Twitter) EVERYTHING YOU WERE TAUGHT ABOUT THE CIVIL WAR IS WRONG, ASK A SOUTHERNER! "Lochlainn Seabrook's Everything You Were Taught About The Civil War Is Wrong is exactly what every patriotic Southerner needs in 2011, the sesquicentennial of the War to Prevent Southern independence.  The establishment will pull out all the stops to continuing its demonization of the South.  Southern folks can fight back with the information in this fine book.  Truth is the most powerful weapon we have.  Seabrook's book lays that truth out in a very enjoyable and usable form." - DR. J. MICHAEL HILL (President and founder of the League of the South) "Just received my copy of Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! by Lochlainn Seabrook.  Excellent.  Excellent.  Excellent." - JERRY CAINE (high school history teacher, Santa Rosa, California) "I finished Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong in one sitting.  Loved it.  Real food for thought.  Especially the legality of, and the reasons for, Lincoln's war.  Thanks.  Will look out for more titles and recommend your site to others." - PAUL GORDON (Australia) "The best book I've ever read." - BARRY LAGRAND MCKAY (South Carolina) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “EXCELLENT”: Just finished my hardcover edition of this brilliant book. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to know the truth about this subject. Well written, cross-referenced, and with tons of notes! One of my favorite books!!!” - PAUL SEPARK AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “BREAKING DOWN THE YANKEE MYTHS”: “This book is a true credit to preserving the truths of history. It will be an absolute eye-opener for anyone who was taught that the war was only about slavery. For too long the atrocities committed by the North against the South have been covered up by revisionists attempting to protect Lincoln’s legacy. You will learn that Lincoln was not the man you thought he was. You will question why this man is consistently thought to be the greatest president in history.” - T.K. GOOBER AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ”: “The best way to lie is to tell the truth, just don’t mention the important parts. in Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! Colonel Seabrook presents these important parts cleverly left out of our school history book and media. For anyone curious about the truth of our history, Colonel Seabrook is a top notch professional researcher who tells the truth about our history and heritage (both sides), explaining what really happened in America’s Victorian era history. It’s not just about Lincoln’s War, but what happened before and after as well. He debunks myths and lies that have plagued our history books and media for far too long.” - AMY VACHON (Maine) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Outstanding book that clears up a lot of falsehoods about the Civil War. I learned alot that I never heard when I was in school and only got the Northern version of the War, which I always had my serious doubts about because it just didn’t seem to make sense to me. A must read for all those willing and wanting to learn the truth about the Civil War.” - KEITH C. PATTON “Great book.  Been reading it.” - JAY RUNYAN ALIBRIS REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Wonderfully researched and presented. An easy to comprehend counter to the historical bias in this country.” - JUDIJ AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “AM I EVER GLAD I READ THIS!” “I recently read this book and actually had no idea what I would find within its pages, but, boy, am I ever glad I did!!! I have always been told the victor writes the history and that is the case with Lincoln's unconstitutional war he waged against the South. If you are looking for truth about this war that continues to impact our country, then this is the book for you. Buy it, read it and then share the real truth with others so they, too, can understand how DC (District of Corruption) really operates.” - REBECCA DALRYMPLE GOODREADS REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Born and raised a Yankee, this book was a mind-opener. To be honest, I was ready for another point of view and Lochlainn Seabrook delivered, full-throttle, no holds barred, with conviction. I had previous inklings of a different truth while watching the PBS series, "The Abolitionists," which made obvious that Abraham Lincoln was not the emancipator he has since been hailed. The historical truth of his reluctance came out when Speilberg's film, Lincoln, was released. So many of the historians and scholars I admire were lamenting and refuting the premise of that film that I had to take a second look at our 16th president. Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! lifts a dark veil obscuring this period of our history and reveals a tragedy that is being perpetuated on our country with relentless energy. We can never be healed without facing the absolute facts of this tragic and criminal event. If you intend to make the so-called 'Civil War' the background for your novel, please don't perpetuate the tissue of lies and call it history. I recommend this book to anyone who is seriously interested in studying American history.” - LEIGH VERRILL-RHYS “Read this book - because you can’t trust Yankee history books to tell the truth!” - TOM KOPCZAK “Absolutely wonderful book.” - BECK ROBERTS “Just finished this. Great book to read. There’s lots of interesting things you won’t find in a history book or taught in school.” - ADAM JONES EBAY REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “ A must read for everyone. Eye opening facts that have never been taught and/or deleted from American history in schools and public discussion.  100% recommended, 100% good value, 100% cmpelling content.” - DAVID K. AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE!”: “This should be one of the required books to read while in school.  This book presents documented, unreconstructed facts and sheds so much light and truth on many commonly believed falsehoods.  It is well written and a fantastic read.” - TIFFANY FLETCHERON AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “EXCELLENT READ - THE TRUTH IS IN THIS BOOK”: “Finally a good book that tells the truth about the Civil War. For many years only the on sided northern version of the Civil War was taught in schools, total propaganda lies from the north. Dishonest Abe Lincoln is exposed for what he really was in this book. There was much more to the story that is left out completely by northern propagandists. This book is an honest good read.” - NICOLE HICKS “I have this book and I love it!” - MARY ELLEN HUNT (Facebook) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “YANKEES ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS”: “Everything you should have learned about the Civil War and the Southern heroes who defended the South instead of the lies you were taught.  The Northerners that wrote the history books were a bunch of liars. The South will rise again!!!” - ANONYMOUS AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This book should be read by everyone!! It tells it the way it was. There is so much information our there that just isn’t true, but too many people who won’t acknowledge they may be mistaken.” - JANET VOLCHANSKY “This was the first book I bought from Sea Raven Press.  It’s a real eye opener and I’m so thankful to Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook for this book and all the fine books he’s written.  I now have these real history books to pass down to my son, my daughter, and my grandchildren as well, as the memoirs of my great great grandfather who fought in the war.  You just can’t put a price on having these books to preserve Dixie’s true history and heritage. Y’all are saints in my book for doing the fine work that you do.  Thank you and God bless you all.” - KEITH CRAVEN AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “All I can say is WOW!!!  Well documented!  I recall some of the things in this book were taught when I went to school, but have been lost or distorted in order to promote the myth that the war was fought over slavery - which it certainly was not.  Slavery wasn’t even an issue until 2 years into the war to justify the conflict and to keep England and France from siding with the South.  If every American would read this they would realize history has been rewritten to actually destroy America.” AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK”: “Everything you were taught about the Civil War is wrong!  Read this book and find out the facts!  I thought I knew so much about the War Between the States.  You will be amazed at what you weren’t taught!” - JACQUELINE KARLSEN AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Finally the TRUTH!!!!!” - RICK ADAMSON “A must-read! Very good info. As a member of the SCV I recommend everyone read it. You will learn the truth on many things you were taught!” - ROCK PFINGSTEN (Facebook) “Thank you so much for everything you do!” - DANIEL BOYD (Facebook) “Amazing book.” - CHRISTOPHER MILLER “Just finished rereading this book.” - BILL WEST “I am currently right in the middle of this book! I love it! What a different view it presents!” - MIKE JONES (Facebook) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS - “CORRECTING THE ERRORS OF YANKEE HISTORY”: "We are blessed that we live in this time period, where we are finally learning the truth about many things that have occurred, especially in what we have been taught in our sanitized understanding of history. This book virtually rewrites everything we thought we knew about the Civil War, especially from what we have been taught from the northern perspective. And most importantly, it does it with an extensive footnoting (which really need to be read concurrently with the main text) and bibliography. Lochlainn Seabrook writes from a very knowledgeable perspective, and backs his assertions with facts, directly from known historical documentation. The book is written in a ‘here’s what you were taught, and now here’s the truthful answer’ format. It works well, and while different questions may end up using the same source material, many include additional sources of information. The bottom line is that each ‘what we thought we knew’ is thoroughly answered as if different people were doing the asking. This book is a mandatory read, and not just because it focuses on the Civil War, but the astute reader will see the many parallels that have come up in American history from the time of this country’s inception, and that continue through the events happening today. The book covers: the causes of the Civil War, the ongoing battle between a State’s Rights and the Federal government, the abolition movement, slavery and servitude, the states’ right of secession, what history really says about Abraham Lincoln, the Confederate Flag, the Reconstruction fiasco, blockades, war crimes, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, the early Ku Klux Klan, and much more. I highly recommend Everything You Were Taught About The Civil War Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! This is one book that should be read by every student and truth seeker of history." - DBH “This is a wonderful book and we would recommend it to all.” - ROBERT WILLIAM ALEXANDER (Facebook) “Great book!” - DAVID MCMAHON AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Everyone should read this book!!!” - GREG BLALOCK AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Very informative.  Learned a lot that should be required in school.” - AMAZON CUSTOMER AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Excellent” - NATIVE TEXAN “Highest recommendation in every regard!

Thanks Sea Raven Press for publishing a read that dispels the myths taught in conventional history class.” - JAY WHY (Twitter) “I own the paperback version and have loaned it out five times to friends of mine. They’ve all said it opened their eyes about the War of Northern aggression. Oh, I forgot to mention that two of them are black. They said it gave them a new understanding of the Confederate States of America and how today’s government is spinning historical fact.” - PAUL SCOFIELD AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “THE NORTH ISN’T ALL THERE IS”: “This book does exactly what it promises on the cover. Exceptionally well-documented and thought-provoking. This is one of the books that redresses the adage 'history belongs to the victors'. I have recently questioned the accepted position regarding the American Civil War - having been in the South and had opportunity to meet and know many Southerners of all races and religions. I especially doubt the pure ‘there is only one right side of the conflict’ attitude espoused by some in my acquaintance. In war, there is never one right side. I am a Maine Yankee. A member of my family fought with Joshua Chamberlain at Gettysburg. It's time we accepted the truth of our history. Northerners were slave owners - among them Ulysses S. Grant - and Southerners were abolitionists - among them Robert E. Lee. As despicable as slavery was and is, there is no civilization or ethnic group that has not employed this method of domination and was considered preferable to the slaughter of entire societies. It exists today, perpetrated by human traffickers and pimps - many belonging to the very ethnic groups who have been exploited in the past. Greeks, Romans, Celts, Africans, Arabs, Jews, Angles and Saxons, Asians, etc. have all enslaved and been enslaved. The sooner we own our past, the sooner we can be freed by the truth of it.” - LEIGH VERRILL-RHYSON (Maine) “I’ve promoted the heck out of this book and bought for many people with a smile on my face.” - JONATHAN CAMPBELL “Got it, read it, love it!” - AMY VACHON (New York) “Great experience with a highly recommended seller. Thank you.” - FIVE STAR EBAY REVIEW AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “GREAT BOOK”: “Very interesting and informative.

Well written and informative. No library, both personal and public, should be without it.” - AETHLING MACCELTICA AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “HELL YES, WE’RE STILL FIGHTING!”: “Hang onto your Confederate money boys, the South will rise again!  It has been said that the winners of a war get to write the story.  This has been true of the conflict between the Southern and Northern states, though nearly everything on the Internet these days is questionable.  Don’t believe this book?  Why do you believe the Yankee ones?  Mr. Seabrook’s writing is carefully documented, yet incredible in some parts.  As a fifth generation Southerner I appreciate his research, and hope more people will avail themselves of this book.  Our country would have doubtless been very different had the South had a “Marshall plan” instead of the destruction which was brought upon our region for too many years after the conflict.  If readers will read this book with an open mind, they should get a more realistic understanding of Southerners.  It will give people in other parts of the United States a more realistic understanding of why Southerners are “still fighting the war.” - MARGIE READ, of Magnolia Mansions “I read this book last month and could not put it down!  I am a Civil War historian, raised in the North, but was smart enough to go to the right place to get the facts: Sea Raven Press. God bless the South!” - MATTHEW MCGILL “I have read this book, and it is fantastic. I would love to get this into the schools.” - HAMILTON MCELROY “Book came yesterday.  I’ve already read half of it.  I can’t put it down.” - JAY BURKEY “Good book!” - GILCHRIST MCKAY (Facebook) “I love this book. We are losing so much of our real Southern history because ‘the winners’ do not record it correctly.” - DAVID McMAHON "I just finished reading Everything You Were Taught About The Civil War Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!  I give it 5 Confederate Battle Flags out of 5." - RALPH ABBRUZZESE AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This book is great and the author supports it with citing sources and facts. Some critics may have issues with a few selected facts but the book is quite solid. Seabrook gets a bit strident in the book but he builds a good case to question the 3 or 4 pages you read in high school. This book will have you re-thinking the deadliest war the US ever fought.” - FREEDOM FIRST “As the last portion of the Western World with an authentic culture, the South is known for its fine writers and storytellers.  Tennessean Lochlainn Seabrook now joins that proud tradition.  His new book is a real page-turner that defends the South and shatters Yankee falsehoods about our history.  But it’s not just a pro-South book, it’s a pro-Truth book.” - THOMAS MOORE (Chairman of the Southern National Congress and author of The Hunt for Confederate Gold) “Have read this book and several others by Mr. Seabrook.  Terrific!” - MARK KEITH “Excellent book.  All Southerners should have it!” - DAWN GOSNELL DIEHL “Good read!” - TIM TERRY AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Really easy read which thoroughly went over so many important issues about US history, and especially aspects of Lincoln's war! This book would never be allowed in our US indoctrination camps ("public schools"/government schools) because then the kids would be aware of just how true the statement of ‘the victors write the history books’ is in America too. Plus the powers that be (the world over) always spin the history taught to the youth, so that it supports and aggrandizes the ones in power at the time. A book like this would really help Americans wake up to the facts that he has been duped on many issues. The civil war definitely being one of these!” - SNAKE RIVER HOMBREON “If you want a refreshing pro-South, honest, factual view of the War Between the States that is not tainted with political correctness then this book is a must read.  Mr. Seabrook’s work is the first step to confronting the great injustice done to Southern history, emblems, and Confederate heroes by the liberal educational system, Hollywood, and popular culture.  All of whom see no evil in stereotyping, ridiculing, and discriminating against descendants of Confederate soldiers.” - RONNY MANGRUM (President of The Green Cannon Tennessee Flag Conservation Foundation; Adjutant for Roderick, Forrest’s War Horse Camp 2072, Sons of Confederate Veterans; Former Heritage Violations Chairman for Tennessee Division, SCV) “Hands down Lochlainn’s best book on the war!  It’s packed with so much information.” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio) “Great book!” - CHRISTOPHER TAYLOR “I read this book and learned a lot from it! - DAVID MCMAHON “I’m reading Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong right now.  It’s a very good book!” - PAUL SCOFIELD (Minnesota) “With the publication of this book we Americans can finally reconcile our history with our past, through a balanced understanding of the greatness of our ancestors, particularly our Southern ancestors.” - BARBARA MARTHAL (African-American educator, lecturer, Civil War re- enactor, and member of the Tennessee Society Order of the Confederate Rose) “This wonderful read proves the point, ‘there’s always two sides to every story.’  A gripping work that upon reflection will make you think about what you were or were not taught in school about American history.” — J.T. THOMPSON (Executive Director, Lotz House Museum, Franklin, Tennessee) "This is one of the best things I've ever read.  Keep up the great work!  God bless Lochlainn Seabrook!" - PAUL PRIEST (Kentucky) "This is a book that should be in the schools.  Very good with the facts." - DON BLACK “I have often told my students that the ‘History’ studied in American Public (Government) Schools is as bogus as what the children in the previous Soviet nations were taught by their Russian tutors.  Lochlainn Seabrook takes an objective giant step in seeking to restore accuracy and integrity in our understanding of the American experience of The U.S. War to Prevent Southern Independence (called ‘Civil War’ by northerners).  This is an important step in correcting the obnoxious myths and lies widely promoted by the U.S. court historians.” - TIMOTHY D. MANNING (Executive Director of The Southern Partisan Reader) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Excellent read.” - NATHAN “From the time that our nation was formed until the time of the War Between the States, many complicated issues within the republic that had remained unresolved finally exploded in a tragic trial by combat.  Many of the volatile issues that led to that bloody crucible as well as many that emerged from it, along with the manner in which those issues and connected personages are now portrayed, are addressed in this thought-provoking narrative.” - SCOTT BOWDEN (nine-time award-winning historian and author of Last Chance for Victory: Robert E. Lee and the Gettysburg Campaign and Robert E. Lee at War) "It is so nice to see people take the time to properly educate people about the South and its proud history and heritage." - TRACIE CARROLL "Great Book.  Everybody who cares about promoting our Southern heritage with facts should buy a copy and study it!  A must read and a must buy to use to inform our folks of how to fight back with historical proof!  Should be in every Southern Patriot's home.  I love this book!" - BARRY ISENHOUR (Virginia) "Love Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! by Lochlainn Seabrook.  It's a great book!" - TOBY HAAS (North Carolina) "Love this book!!!" - RITA RHINE (Maryland) “There is a wonderful work put out by Sea Raven Press titled Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong! Great Book!” - JOHNNY RILEY "With so much media on the Northern point of view, it's good to see the other side of the story!" - FACEBOOK "Great book!  A must have in very home library!" - RICHARD BOHLMAN “Just finished this book last week.  Good info.  Good read.” - MATTHEW MCGILL "I have read up to chapter three and it has been clearly demonstrated that the ‘Civil War’ was not about slavery.  What I do see however are manipulative ways used by the ‘Union’ to sway a public perception and enter into a war closely resembling our current Washington and news media.  Namely avoiding truth and creating myths to further government agendas.  You need to get this book because not only does it shed light on repressed truth from those that win wars, but it shows how societies are easily moved by the few in power, in this case the Union." - JAMES GREENE “This is a book worth reading.  It left me shaking my head.” - BRENDA JONES SMITH AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “EXCELLENT COMPENDIUM FOR CIVIL WAR HISTORY”: "This is an excellent book about the Civil War that is useful for those who know little, or nothing of history but have been fed the same stereotypical views for years.  I recommend this book for young people (high school level) to present information and views that they likely will never hear due to political correctness and pro-Northern biases.  The book thwarts many of the commonly taught notions of how Southerners are evil, and Northerners are righteous solely because of the slavery issues.  Readers will be surprised to know how racists the Northerners really were (many still are as I remind my friends here in Kansas that Brown vs Topeka Board of Education was right here in their Yankee state).  Give this book to a liberal or Yankee and watch the color drain from them.  I rate the book as "two thumbs up." - LT. COL. (ret) E. KENNEDY JR. (Leavenworth, Kansas) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!”: "They say that history is written by the victors.  To get an accurate education of the Civil War, one must read books like this.  It is well written in an easy to understand format, basically a series of questions with definitive answers.  In today's bizarre political climate, this perspective is even more relevant.  This book goes a long way to counter-balance the notion that anything with the word ‘South’ in it is automatically racist.  Whether you are from the North or South, this book is a must read!" - B. BOREN (Charlotte, North Carolina) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “I have waited all my life for a truthful text to be put in book form describing what really happened versus all the lies I was subjected to growing up.  This Civil War is relevant today as we see the tyranny of the Northern government taking away all of the citizens rights and introducing martial law, as was done in Lincoln's day.  Also noted is the immense land seizures going on all over the country especially in the West, and if you question what is legal and right, you even end up in prison or have your head bashed in.  This is what the Civil War and our Southern ancestors fought against, what is now, happening right before your eyes for all to see.  All this and much more was done during the Civil War and kept quiet, they simply rewrote history.  One example, in the movie Batman where he finds the batcave under Wayne Manor, it is said it was a haven for black slaves.  The truth is and was always that the black slaves were running from the North, down to the South.  Another example, is the movie Glory.  The truth is that hundred's of thousands of black slaves fought against the North.  This is just part of the truth!  More will come out because the one things we have is our great-great-grandfathers letters, which they sent home describing it all.  These were something Lincoln couldn't get ahold of, as well as Southern newspaper clippings in the letters, before the North burnt them.” - DAVE C. AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “If you’re well-read, or just starting out on the Civil War, this book is filled with information that has been swept under the rug, so they ‘we the people’ would never know about it.” - STEPHEN DUROCHER AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This book is a valuable resource as a quick study for those who have been inculcated with the North’s one-sided view of the Civil War, along with that of government run schools and the Liberal dominated media, but who suspect that the first casualty of war is truth.  For those who have interest in the facts and a desire to learn, this is a great book.” - SCARLET (Georgia) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “EXCELLENT BOOK!”: "It should be used in the classroom of every history class in this country. It most assuredly dispels the myth that is preached in our public schools. We would do well as a nation to re-examine the War and the events surrounding it." - MIMI AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “THE TRUTH”: "Being a Tejano, some of my ancestors fought with Hood’s Brigade.  It's about time someone told the truth!!!!!  This book is a justice to the Confederacy!!!!!!!!!!" - FRANK BEJAR JR. AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “THE LEGACY OF THE CONFEDERACY”: "At last an honest review of the Civil War 151 years from the beginning of the war.  This should be taught also in Europe where all these leftist politicians believe the Yankees fought for the freedom of the blacks." - MARCELLO GAMBERUCCI AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: "SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING FOR ALL AMERICANS": “Folks, as Americans, we’ve been born into a lie. We’ve not been taught even half of the real truth about the conflict of 1861-1865. That 4-year period did more to define this country than anything else. I ask, why do we even celebrate the 4th of July? That beautiful American Republic, given to us by the founders with its scope of limited government, died on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse. I believe much of the anti-southern and anti-confederate news we see today is a direct result of books like this, and there are many, that dare to tell the truth and shame the United States for what it did. Many see this knowledge as a threat to the status quo. The Southern people lived out the truths stated in the Declaration of Independence, and they were raped, murdered and burned for doing so. This war was about Money. And Power. Make no mistake. Southern states were paying 87% of the entire U.S. revenue in 1860 and yet a mere 7% was spent in the south. And it had been lopsided like that for decades. Lincoln, and The United States Congress, offered the Confederacy everything, even an IRREVOCABLE 13th amendment that guaranteed slavery forever, if only they would re-enter the Union and keep the money train to the northern states flowing. But they demanded that the smaller population in the south pay the vast majority of the taxes. Yes, slavery was wrong and everybody knew it, but at the time it was a United States institution, not just a Southern one. And yes it would have ended peacefully here, just like it did everywhere else in the world. How much better would things be today (think race relations) if gradual emancipation had taken place, with education and societal assimilation emphasized? Instead, it happened overnight in the midst of a total war, the likes of which horrified the entire world. FREEDOM for blacks at that point meant that you were “free to die”, and that was about all. No equal rights or equal treatment under the law for another 100 years! And don’t think for one minute that Yankee guns killed only whites in the south. Federal troops brought much anguish to blacks as well. Read this book! Learn the truth!” - JIM AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: "I am not from the South and I have spent most of my life in the military ‘defending’ America; however, it was an America I did not truly know or understand.  I have spent the past 40 years relearning what I was taught in the first 20 years.  This book has some bias, what book does not, but it tells you it has bias whereas most do not.  This book does tend to lean a bit far when it comes to the errors of the South but it is one of the few that will tell the truth about the North, which is now America; i.e., all of us." - LEON SANDERS AMAZON REVIEW: “Factoids on all history misconceptions.  Provides great research to back all information up.  Like the old saying goes: ‘Whoever Wins the War writes their own History of it.’  It is our job to correct what's taught falsely in school.  Deo Vindice!” - LA BIKER AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Great book.  A real eye-opener.” - KEVIN P. AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING BY EVERY HISTORY STUDENT AND TEACHER IN THE U.S.”: “Ten years ago when I started researching the genealogy of families through the period of the 1860's/70's, I uncovered local and family documents that conflicted with the things taught me in history classes in both public schools and university. I began trying to learn more about why so many women and children just disappeared and were never in any subsequent census. I also discovered the brutality and disenfranchment of southern whites during reconstruction. Their property was taken and they were left adrift with no means of livelihood. Rape was common and brutality by the military against civilians. The more I dug, the more curious I became and when I discovered this book, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! by Lochlainn Seabrook, I found many answers to my questions of what really happened. We are just like the Soviet citizens of the USSR, force-fed myths that are unrelated to the truth. One topic that I've investigated, due to reading Latin American histories written by Latin Americans, is the question of why Theodore Roosevelt warred against Spain to take over their possessions, and why the US went to war with Mexico 12 years after Texas won its independence. The topic is 'Manifest Destiny', which was an invention of northern Puritans who believed they should spread their ideas throughout the world. The many wars the US has fought, not including WW2, fit the Manifest Destiny theme, as people think they can impose their world view on others with totally different cultures. Thousands of US citizens have perished in those wars, none of which was won by the US. The height of Manifest Destiny included the 1860's, and Lincoln did what Stalin would do in the 20th century. He used the military to brutally destroy an entire country that had the audacity to exit the Union, a perfectly legal and constitutional right. The death toll of this war is greater than all other wars combined. Our perestroika is the internet, where information hidden for generations is now easily available for those seeking the truth. It's a new age where already there are free classes for homeschoolers and private schools which are proving to be the key to learning in this age where children are electronically savvy. MIT and Harvard have posted their lectures online, free. Other universities are doing the same, and the standardized tests remain, the SAT, GRE, etc. (No need to attend a college). Self-study online is becoming popular and will skyrocket as the costs of the 19th century model of both public schools and colleges continually rise beyond what tax revenues can support. Like the USSR, the US government dictates a one-size-fits-all in everything, and there is never any accountability for the end results.” - “CURIOUS ONE” AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “ONE OF THE BEST CIVIL WAR BOOKS EVER”: "Tens of thousands of books have been written about the War Between the States, and I have read more of them than I can count - mostly written from a Northern perspective.  When I discovered this volume, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!, by Lochlainn Seabrook, it immediately went to the top of my list of favorites. Being an author myself, with six published books to my credit, I must admit that I envy the ability of Seabrook to express himself on the printed page in a way that is easy to understand, yet powerful and thought provoking. I had a very hard time putting it down, and I've found myself going back to read many passages again and again.  Actually, if your reading schedule demands that you put this book down before you finish reading it cover to cover, that's okay too. Each of the chapters can stand alone, making it an excellent book for either browsing or for reading straight through. In the introduction, historian and author Lochlainn Seabrook, makes this bold assertion: ‘. . . slavery started in the North, abolition began in the South, Abraham Lincoln was a rabid white racist, Jefferson Davis adopted a black child, 95 percent of Southern blacks supported the Confederacy, and the Yanks started the war, a conflict that was illegal from start to finish.’ Then, in the next 22 chapters he makes his case in a manner which no intellectually honest person can easily refute.  Seabrook states much more than just his personal opinions. He backs up every page with extensive notes and bibliography, quoting primary sources instead of just rehashing the words and prejudices of court historians. The introduction to the book is written by the distinguished black educator from Memphis, Tennessee, Nelson W. Winbush, who said, 'I'm proud to be a real grandson, having in my possession the Confederate Battle Flag that draped my grandfather's coffin, a reunion jacket and cap, numerous newspaper articles and reunion pictures.  I was five when he passed and I still remember war stories as told me by my grandfather.'  Another thing I liked about the book is that it closes with a very practical list, including contacts, entitled 'How you can help preserve the South.'  I found this very helpful.  I must admit that this book made me angry.  Having been born in the Midwest, reared mostly in the South, and living much of my adult life in the North, I was taught, from elementary school through college, only a very one-sided version of the 'Civil War.'  I wish I had discovered this book and others like it much earlier.  The last three words of the title, Ask a Southerner, is not always the best advice.  The sad fact is that the majority of Southerners learn their own history from textbooks written by Northern authors, taught by politically correct teachers and professors - blindly passing down the same misconceptions and prejudices from one generation to another.  All Americans would benefit from reading Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong.  Prepare to be challenged - enlightened - and maybe even made angry that you weren't taught these truths before." - J. STEPHEN CONN (Loveland, Ohio) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “ENLIGHTENING!”: "As a European, I have been fed with lots of the propaganda the author describes in his book.  Until a short time ago I had a quite standardized opinion about Lincoln's war, although I never really shared the opinion about the Southerners as being racists or inhuman (I always get a little skeptical when too many people say the same thing and no-one argues against.  Then I need to go check it out!).  Because of that I started researching on my own, and kept finding new 'perspectives' about this part of American history, information and data that did not fit in the picture I got served by the mass-media and the more known books and publications.  Everyone who wants to use his own head and try to see through this 'fog' can actually succeed sooner or later, but it really takes a lot of time and of efforts.  This book is a compendium of the main lies and of the opposite viewpoint (or of the reality) to any of them, making the effort a lot easier.  It should only be made more accessible to everyone, also outside of the US, where it is practically unknown. . . . In a few words, this book tells about the ever repeating story of big arguments and superior ideals being exploited for the lowest power-related reasons, and about the distortion of truth in order to serve the lie being fed to the people.  Something that is still going on today; maybe more now than 150 years ago!  Someone said that a lie, if repeated thousands of times, becomes the truth!!!" - OVIDIO GENTILONI AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Very informative.” - JACK HERTZOG (Roswell, New Mexico) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Love it.” - JAMES J. BRENNAN (Brooklyn, New York) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This review if from an ‘outsider’, if you will, learning the TRUTH regarding the Civil War, as coined by the North, or The War for Southern Independence.  That being said, I have no leaning towards the North or the South before touching the subject of North vs. South.  A background of myself, just so we are clear; I am a skeptic.  I just don't believe whatever people will tell me.  First, research the subject then decide.  I am not clueless when it comes to the war between the North vs. South since I have attended community college and the United States history comes up even in classes that involves American politics.  What I know that is widespread here in the Northern States is that the Southern States are pro-slavery and all the ‘sins’ of slavery have been pointed to the South.  The South is bad, racist, and other similar derogatory words to describe the Southern States are what is being taught by the North.  Of course, I already know before even touching the controversial North vs. South that the victors always writes what is the ‘official’ history.  That may or may not be distorted to hide the facts and truths of the war to make the victor as ‘fighting for justice’.  The text Everything You Were Taught about the Civil War Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! by Lochlainn Seabrook can be a good starting point to dig deeper into what really happened between the North and South.  There are many cited sources that makes this text ‘closer to what happened’.  Seems to be that Mary Chestnut's diary is one of the sources of information that both the Northern and Southern authors refer to.  A word of caution that rings true not only to the North vs. South but also to other subjects out there.  Do not lose your skepticism while researching.  I do know that some people who call themselves ‘historians’, ‘Civil War buffs’, ‘academic historians’, or whatever they proclaim their title to be, can also be twisting information about the mentioned war between the North and the South.  Read this book: I don’t care if you have a Ph.D. in American history or Civil War history, or even if you’re a professor from a well-known and respected organization!  Got that?  The reason is that the information that was fed to those so-called ‘pro's’ may or may not be biased.  Who knows?” - THOMAS (Los Angeles, California)   REVIEW FROM CONFEDERATE VETERAN MAGAZINE, May/June 2012: "Lochlainn Seabrook has written the primer for Southerners and lovers of the Confederacy.  For all of us believers he is preaching to the choir.  For other Southerners who are on the fence or have allowed lying Northerners to shame them into hesitancy to defend their heritage, Seabrook's book is a must-read.  Author Seabrook is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and claims kin with most of the Confederate hierarchy.  He wrote the definitive biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest, A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest.  This book was previously reviewed in this magazine.  The Foreword to Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask A Southerner! was written by Nelson W. Winbush, an honored and respected member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  Included is a picture of Nelson with his grandfather, Louis Napoleon Nelson, in the mid-1930s on his way to one of the 39 Confederate Reunions he attended.  Author Seabrook confronts twenty-two of the most common falsehoods perpetrated by Northern historians and provides historical Southern truths to demolish each one.  This book is a riveting read for Southerners burning with hatred for Yankee defamation of the South as uncivilized, morally deficient, and entirely at fault for having the audacity to start a war to prevent the righteous North from freeing the slavers.  For after all, this completely false portrayal of the Civil War as having been fought entirely to achieve that noble goal has indoctrinated students in public schools and liberal colleges for over a century.  Author Seabrook includes twenty-seven pages of Notes, plus one of the most extensive bibliographies this reviewer has even seen published.  For any Southerner and defender of the Confederacy, the Bibliography lists copious references for further personal research.  No one desiring to restore the South to a place of honor and respect can overlook the wealth of information (ammunition to a hideous wrong) contained in this book.  Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask A Southerner! is a magnificent historical resource for learning and re-learning all the facts about the Confederacy and why the War Between the States was fought.  Seabrook writes excellent prose: easy to read and understand.  This book MUST be on the shelves of every self-respecting person devoted to our beloved South and to preserving our heritage." - ANN RIVES ZAPPA EVERYTHING YOU WERE TAUGHT ABOUT AMERICAN SLAVERY IS WRONG, ASK A SOUTHERNER! AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This book will change how history is taught, and what we think about it! Breaking the chains forged from lies, heavily researched, documented and footnoted, Mr. Seabrook (winner of the coveted Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal) has written yet another masterpiece! If you don't want to know the truth, don't get this book. However, if you have questions about slavery like I did, hard questions that need solid answers, look no further than this book. Seriously, everything you've been taught about the institution of slavery - particularly in the United States - is completely wrong. The truth has been hidden in clever lies with an agenda behind it for the past 150 years. ‘Truth has a way of breaking through, when pains are taken to bring it to light’ (George Washington), and Mr. Seabrook has done just that. This book is a must have for every educator, home-schooler, researcher, and truthful history seeker. This book is worth every penny and much, much more because Mr. Seabrook's Southern wit and charm is worth the price alone. But every fact illuminates a path in the darkness of lies perpetrated on this country. You will not be disappointed. I heartily recommend this book! Put your seatbelt on though, because it's going to shatter every lie you've been told about slavery and the South. Begin the New Year walking in truth. Get this book today!” - LANI L. RINKEL (Mississippi) “An absolutely wonderful book.” - BECK ROBERTS AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This is an excellent book! Full of illustrations and text documents, and very well researched. The full text documents from people who lived during this period is the most telling part of Colonel Seabrook’s history books. A must-have addition to any history hobbyist’s library. Well worth it’s many pages. Though it seems large, it is an easy read for anyone. Very well and accurately researched. A must read for anyone curious about the subject.  Very well done. Five stars!” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “It has about 1,020 pages and weighs about 5 lbs! It contains the truth about slavery, and every American should have a copy. This book will not be found in our Common Core history classes, the reason being it contains all of the truth left out of the books they’re using now.” - JAMES GREENE (Facebook) “A complete exposure of the fantasy Northern “history twist” used to perpetuate the Civil War and to occupy the Southern States, in order to capture their cotton fortunes and redistribute the wealth among the Northern industrialists who initiated it!” - THE CALVERT HISTORICAL FOUNDATION “Great book!” - NICK BURRICHTER (Facebook) “Reading this book. What a great read so far.” - PAUL SCOFIELD AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Great book on the history of slavery from a Southern perspective.  If you are looking for political correctness, this is not your book.” - YOYO “I strongly agree with the information in this book.  Highly recommended.” - WILLIAM KINSEY BOOK DEVIL REVIEW: “Lochlain Seabrook’s massive volume Everything You Were Taught About Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! (around 1,000 pages) might seem intimidating and offputting, given its size and topic, but it’s neither an ungainly read, nor is it revisionist history. What it is, is a book that intends to set revisionist history aright. The winners write history and such is as true for the Civil War and U.S. slavery as anything else. The facts are that the images of a heroic Lincoln freeing ravaged slaves isn’t quite the truth. The history you’ll glean from Seabrook’s eminently readable history volume, shows a much different American slavery - and it’s all thoroughly researched from a plethora of historical documents whose veracity is much harder to deny than the badly written history books and their voluminous caches of bad information. American slaves were slaves in Africa first. They were, on the whole, treated much better here than in Africa. The images of ruthlessly mistreated slaves belongs to the ancient world much more than in American history. Slaves in America (none of this justifies slavery, mind you) were far better treated than that. Slave owners tried not to separate families and slaves were allowed to have property and even make money. Slavery was not the crux of the war, though it was the crux of some very successful propaganda on the part of the North, the Emancipation Proclamation being one of those pieces of propaganda. (Did you know that it actually freed not a single slave?) Lincoln was not a moral abolitionist; rather, it was a political move. He, in his own words, proves himself a man who believed blacks were inferior to whites, and what he really wanted to do was send the slaves back to Africa. Where was his great concern when slaves were freed and there was no plan in place to help them adjust to their new standing. With Lincoln, it was pretty much sink or swim for the newly liberated black population. The South was not a buggabear, a big ol’ bad guy that noble Lincoln was trying to conquer in the namre of good. It wasn’t really a Civil War given that it was two sovereign nations at war with each other. Lincoln never did get the hang of the whole state sovereignty thing. Bear in mind, these are only the facts I’m pulling off the top of my memory. Seabrook is as good a writer as he is a historian. His facts are many but the book is friendly and quite perusable in its presentation. It’s too easy to write off this kind of work as the product of racists or revisionists, but Seabrook - nor myself, for that matter - is neither. He has all the documentation he needs and he makes a lucid, inarguable case for the real facts - rather than the ones you were force-fed in school. This book ought to be important to anybody interested in American history - and preserving its accuracy.” - KRISTOFER UPJOHN AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “I don’t normally take time to review books.  But I’ve used several of Mr. Seabrook’s works in researching my novels, and of all of his that I own, Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! is the best one.  In addition to the fact that this title is filled with nuggets of valuable information, his thoroughness and frank style make this an excellent addition to my library and the most helpful resource I own.  I would recommend it for anyone who’s serious about true Southern history.  If this is the first book of Mr. Seabrook’s you’ve purchased, I suggest you sit back and enjoy it, then go out and buy the rest of his work.” - JAMES RALPH ELSTAD (author of Comes the Southern Revolution) EVERYTHING YOU WERE TAUGHT ABOUT AFRICAN-AMERICANS AND THE CIVIL WAR IS WRONG, ASK A SOUTHERNER! “I’m reading this right now. Excellent and so informing and eye opening. Love it.” - CHERYL HACKETT (Facebook) “Just finished reading my hardcover edition of this brilliant book. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to know the truth about this subject. Well written, cross referenced, and with tons of notes! One of my favorite books!!!” - PAUL SERPAGGI (Facebook) CONFEDERACY 101: AMAZING FACTS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT AMERICA’S OLDEST POLITICAL TRADITION AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Excellent book!  So glad I ordered it!  Interesting read for anyone who wants to know the facts of the War Between the States.  Lochlainn Seabrook is a great author and researcher.” - JACQUELINE KARLSEN “Great read!” - PATRICK MONROE “This is truly a great book! Worth every penny! Packed with a lot of information. One can refer to it over and over. It covers what its title mentions. But it also covers the War.” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio) “Excellent book! Can’t wait for Mr. Seabrook’s new title, Confederate Flag Facts. I’ve learned a lot from his books, and I’m passing them down to my kids.” - BRYAN RIVERS “Great read folks.  I learned alot from this book.  A must read!” - JOHN EVANS (Facebook) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Great book. An enjoyable education.” - JERRY “I bought your book Confederacy 101.  It arrived in the mail yesterday and I’ve already started reading it.  Very interesting and very informative, and very accurate.  I will be ordering more of your books. I love them!!  Long live Dixie!!” - LINDA SUITOR FOUNTAINE “Good book. I have read it many times.” - JEFFREY COOK (Facebook) SLAVERY 101: AMAZING FACTS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT AMERICA’S “PECULIAR INSTITUTION” “Just finished this book yesterday. A must-read for anyone that wants and seeks the truth.  (I own Lochlainn’s other book on slavery too: Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!Slavery 101 should serve as a great quick book for research!” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio) “Great book!” - KERRY WILLIAMS (Facebook) BOOK DEVIL REVIEW: “Slavery 101 by Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal winner Lochlainn Seabrook may be a tiny little sliver of a volume, but there is ample data and revealing truths … revealed. For you see, the contents of this book contradict what you were taught in school about the Civil War. Far from being a battle over the liberation of black slaves, some noble war to bring about abolition, the so-called Civil War was a ridiculously bloody, nation-rending squall over economics. Simply put, the rightful secession of states whose original union established sovereignty was a threat to the northern economy, as well as a movement to heavily centralize federal power in the executive seat. Sadly, great strides in that direction were indeed made by Lincoln, far from the crusading friend of blacks he is usually said to be. With big government, fed-centric politics and unignorable economic impact putting pressure on the direction of the nation, Lincoln (a despotic baboon, truth be told) used race as a hot button issue to prevent European intervention on the side of the south. But the fact of the matter is, any number of documented quotes from leaders on both sides of the Mason-Dixon firmly establishes that slavery was not a motive but rather a major gear in Lincoln’s disingenuous propaganda machine. Besides the Civil War itself, the history of slavery in America (and beyond) is brimming with actual facts that contradict the popular version of events. The slave trade was conducted by the North. Black on black slavery was already afoot in Africa without any prompting from us. I could lay out tons of facts but that would be to give away the contents of this brief but bulging book of hidden history. Suffice it to say the South was far less guilty than traditionally depicted, and the North far more so. Seabrook strikes again with one of his enlightening volumes that help correct the unhistorical history shoved at us any time the topic of slavery and the American Civil War are broached.” - KRISTOFER UPJOHN GIVE THIS BOOK TO A YANKEE!  A SOUTHERN GUIDE TO THE CIVIL WAR FOR NORTHERNERS “Award-winning author and historian Lochlainn Seabrook has done it again.  He’s given traditional Southerners yet another book that not only rectifies many of the notoriously false Yankee myths floating around out there, but one that makes Southerners genuinely proud to be Southern!  This brief work, provocatively entitled Give This Book to a Yankee!  A Southern Guide to the Civil War For Northerners, is a loosely based distillation of his popular blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!  Pared down several hundred pages for quick reading, as the title suggests, Give This Book to a Yankee! makes an excellent gift for your Northern friends, or even for fellow Southerners who have been inculcated with pro-North nonsense, and who need reeducating as to Dixie’s authentic history. . . . Heavily researched and illustrated, this little book is an essential weapon anyone can use to defend Dixie and the Southern Cause, making it a must-have for traditional Southerners, Civil War buffs, and educators.  Keep several copies on hand.  You never know when you’re going to bump into an unenlightened Yank or reconstructed Southerner!” - KAREN COOPER (member of The Virginia Flaggers) “Great book!  Everyone needs to read this info.” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio) “My current recommended reading is Give This Book to a Yankee, by a Truth-speaking Southerner, Dr. Lochlainn Seabrook at Sea Raven Press.  Thank y’all for purchasing and reading this powerful and enlightening book.  You’ll be glad you did.  I guarantee y’all.” - EDWIN GRAVITT “This is a very good reference book.” - RALPH ABBRUZZESE AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Lochlainn Seabrook has written extensively of the snow-job perpetrated on history by the disingenuous, history (re)writing victors in the glaringly mislabeled “Civil War”. . . . His book Give This Book to a Yankee! is all of 77 pages long, yet [contains a goldmine of information pertaining to] the sins of the history-revising Yankee conquerors . . . [which he has] chronicled concisely but comprehensively. This is a brilliant distillation of Seabrook’s wealth of knowledge about a major war that forever altered our national identity but whose true story is buried in obscurity. . . . This book provides a short read that shouldn’t test your Yankee associate’s patience, but there is damning data aplenty, a wealth of buried historical fact. This book is a great primer, and if it does prime you, Seabrook has many more books on various aspects of the topic. The author proves, as he does every time out, that he is a fact-focused researcher who writes heavy history with a friendly voice. Just a library of Seabrook books would provide an arsenal of weaponized facts to shatter the Northern lies.” - KRISTOFER UPJOHN (Arkansas) “AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “THE REST OF THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK”: “Excellent book with lots of facts that won’t agree with the liberal mindset.  But they were never interested in facts.  Just what they perceive to be the truth.  Really gives a telling history of Lincoln’s war of aggression against the South, and what the aftermath would have been if he had lived.” - TOMB9619 “I have this book and I’ve shared it with many people!” - SHARON QUINN “”Excellent read!  Give it to a Yankee for Christmas!” - JERRY SEGAL HONEST JEFF AND DISHONEST ABE: A SOUTHERN CHILDREN’S GUIDE TO THE CIVIL WAR "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 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." - AL BENSON JR. (author, with Walter D. Kennedy, of Lincoln's Marxists) AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE 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 "Should be a good book for my home schooled grandkids." - RONNY MANGRUM (President of The Green Cannon Tennessee Flag Conservation Foundation; Adjutant for Roderick, Forrest’s War Horse Camp 2072, Sons of Confederate Veterans; Former Heritage Violations Chairman for Tennessee Division, SCV) “This is an awesome book.  I got one for my daughter (aged 9) and she loves it!” - AMY VACHON (Maine) “It is said that the victor (of a war) writes the history.  I can’t think of anywhere this is more true than here in these United States.  Abraham Lincoln and his cronies claimed we were not a separate nation here in the South, but made war on us as though we were, pillaged our cities, raped our land, killed thousands of our people (and his), and expended vast amounts of money - not over slavery, as is commonly claimed, but over money and power.  Does this sound unfamiliar?  Perhaps even crazy?  That’s because the victor writes the history.  Most of us attended schools controlled by the very government with a vested interest in training us to believe Abraham Lincoln fought a just war over the evils of slavery (especially since much of the centralization that so increased their power was his doing).  Particularly during Reconstruction, a concerted effort was made to teach the history they way they [the U.S. government] wanted it taught.  Fortunately, some of us have since learned better.  As we prepare to study the ‘Civil War’ in our homeschool this year, I went in search of a South-friendly book for children.  I want my daughters to learn the truth about the unnecessary, unjust war Lincoln waged, and the truth about their heritage as Southerners (which has nothing to do with supporting slavery or hating someone because of the color of his skin).  I’ve read some good historical material, but it was all very scholarly (relatively speaking) and not well-suited to elementary schoolers.  I was delighted to find a new book by Lochlainn Seabrook specifically for elementary-aged children.  Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children’s Guide to the Civil War is absolutely fabulous!  It includes many of the facts you’ll find in the more scholarly works, but the wording is very accessible.  Seabrook wrote it for second- to sixth-graders, but I will be reading it aloud with my children, for the benefit of the kindergartener, as well.  And if you’re an adult, it’s a great way to learn the real story of Lincoln’s War without wading through the harder-to-read historical tomes.  Chapters/sections provide overviews of the major battles; discuss the issues that led up to the war; tell of a soldier’s life; peek into the lives of Lincoln, Davis, and Lee; and more.  I find myself wishing I could post the whole book to Facebook, a sentence or a paragraph at a time!  This is so important.  ‘Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it’ - and so many of our citizens don’t even know it.  Do yourself (and your fellow citizens) a favor, and buy this book!  (Recommending it to your local library wouldn’t be a bad idea, either.)” - RACHEL RAMEY AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “This is a well documented history book,  Facts can be checked to be true.  Though not politically correct today, it teaches how a centralized government was established.  Especially if you have Southern descendants and don’t want this history to be lost.  I recommend this book for every student and lover of Southern history.” - GOSHOP4
