DESCRIPTION Our mainstream history books, nearly all written by Liberals and a few uninformed Conservatives, tell us that “secession was illegal” at the start of the American Civil War, making every Confederate official and Confederate supporter a "traitor." But secession was legal in 1815 when the Northern states planned to secede and form a “New England Confederacy,” so why was it illegal in 1861 when Dixie planned to form a Southern Confederacy? These same self-appointed revisionists also tell us that the Southern states "only seceded in order to preserve slavery," and thus the North was "forced" to take up arms to both "destroy slavery" and "save the Union." Today only the simple-minded, the gullible, and the uneducated believe these tired old Yankee myths! But what authoritative source may one go to in order to prove them wrong? The answer is, All We Ask is to be Let Alone: The Southern Secession Fact Book, by award-winning world-acclaimed Southern historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook. Deeply researched, this generously illustrated work debunks nearly every charge made by the anti-South movement regarding secession. Among the topics covered: the meaning and history of secession, the legality and constitutionality of secession, the numerous vital functions of secession, the many complex issues that led to Southern secession, the 13 Secession Ordinances, the defense and justification of secession, the Yankee secession movements, the truth about the so-called “pro-slavery” secessionists, the real role of slavery and abolition in relation to secession and the War, the economics behind the North's attempt to prevent Southern secession, and more. Laid out in an easy-to-read format, the book covers some 300 primary facts and thousands of secondary ones, putting a human face on what has long been regarded as an abstract political theory. To provide context Colonel Seabrook has kindly included the complete texts of the 13 Secession Ordinances, the all-important Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798, and the Virginia Report of 1799, along with hundreds of contemporaneous writings and observations by Southern and Northern Founding Fathers, U.S. presidents, vice presidents, statesmen, politicians, constitutional scholars, legal authorities, and even foreign intellectuals, all who supported the right of secession based on rational, clearcut, and unassailable arguments. Rounding out the title there is a comprehensive bibliography, a detailed index, and nearly 800 endnotes. All We Ask is to be Let Alone is the only book on secession you will ever need to refute critics of the South! This is a significant work that is destined to become another one of the Colonel’s “Southern classics,” and which will help preserve authentic Southern history for future generations.
