DESCRIPTION If you are one of the few people left in the world who still thinks the South is responsible for American slavery, that Southern slaves were routinely abused, that the North never practiced slavery, that the War Between the States was fought over slavery, or that Southern slave owners were feared and detested by their African servants, The Bittersweet Bond: Race Relations in the Old South as Described by White and Black Southerners, will be a revelation. The author-editor, award-winning historian Col. Lochlainn Seabrook, has compiled nearly 500 excerpts from early American letters, speeches, articles, essays, stories, reminiscences, poems, and obituaries that debunk the Left’s many anti-South slavery myths while proving mainstream history books wrong. Densely illustrated with hundreds of rare and out of print images and photos, this timely work brings the long- silenced voices of Victorian Southerners back to life, revealing vital historical facts that have been suppressed by enemies of the South and the Truth for over 150 years. Seabrook’s poignant, hand-selected, first-person accounts by European Americans, African Americans, men, women, youth, and even several Yankees, provide authentic details about Southern slavery, plantation life, and the War for Southern Independence, as they were actually experienced by 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-Century Southerners — both free and enslaved. This enlightening authoritative work includes an index, bibliography, endnotes, appendices, and a compelling introduction by Col. Seabrook. Learn the truth now. Read The Bittersweet Bond.

The Bittersweet Bond, by award-winning historian Lochlainn Seabrook, is a heavily illustrated, massive compilation of authentic firsthand narratives excerpted from Victorian articles, essays, speeches, and letters composed long ago by Old South whites and blacks. This eye-opening expose chronicles the everyday realities, as opposed to the fabricated fairy tales, of life in antebellum Dixie - all the opposite of what you were taught in school! A must-read for anyone with a serious interest in ethnic studies and early American history.” - THE PUBLISHER
