DESCRIPTIONPatterned on the Constitution of the United States of America, the Constitution of the Confederate States of America was written during February and March 1861 by a committee of twelve Southern political leaders, whose states had recently seceded from the Union. A revolutionary document then as now, its writers and supporters hoped the CS Constitution would continue the conservative values of America’s first and purest constitution, the Articles of Confederation, which had been penned expressly for the new United States of America—officially known as the “Confederacy” from 1781 to 1789. Thus, in March 1861, the Southern Founding Fathers naturally named their new country the “Confederacy.”Though the CS Constitution has long been unfairly relegated to the historical scrap heap by liberals and the pro-North movement, in truth it is more relevant today than it was at the time of its inception, on the eve of Lincoln’s illegal and unnecessary war against states’ rights. For the US government has grown into a monstrous tyrannical body that would not even be recognizable by its own founders—men who intentionally filled the US Constitution with countless restrictions to prevent this very type of out-of-control expansion.In an effort to remind us of what we have lost, as well as what we might regain in the future, award-winning author and Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook has brought this important document back to life in his educational book The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained. After a brief introduction concerning the history of the CS Constitution, Mr. Seabrook takes the reader on an enlightening journey of discovery through every one of the document’s 103 clauses. Arcane and often undecipherable 18th- and 19th-Century wording is explained in plain English, while the Constitution’s numerous political provisions are laid out in simple terms that both the scholar and the layperson will appreciate. An in-depth index and bibliography are included.This is a small but truly significant work that is sure to change the way you look at the Confederacy, the US government, and our three American constitutions.
