DESCRIPTION FACTS ERASED FROM OUR HISTORY BOOKS . . . • Victorian Southerners correctly viewed and described Reconstruction as a Yankee communist revolution. • This communist revolution, Reconstruction, was actually the second stage of a vengeful and vicious two-part war that had been planned far in advance to destroy the South. • During Reconstruction the Democrats (mainly Southerners) were Conservatives and the Republicans (mainly Northerners) were Liberals. (If you do not know this, neither the Civil War or Reconstruction will make the slightest bit of sense.) • The original architect of Reconstruction, Liberal U.S. President Abraham Lincoln—despite his public words to the contrary—privately planned to subjugate then totally Northernize the South. • After Lincoln's assassination Reconstruction was taken over by socialists and communists, radical members of the then Left-wing Republican Party. • Southerners considered the 12 years between 1865 and 1877 an actual war, one they referred to as "The War of Reconstruction." • As part of Reconstruction the Liberal North repeatedly violated the Constitution while committing countless outrages and crimes against the Conservative South, including robbery, destruction and seizure of private property, rape, and even murder; simultaneously, honest, well-respected, legally elected Southern officials were thrown out of office and replaced by non-taxpaying illiterates, unscrupulous carpetbaggers, and progressive Left-wing thugs. • To maintain dictatorial control over Dixie, the new Radical Left Republican government, headed by Liberal U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant, illegally weaponized the police, the courts, and the military; unfortunately, the Grant administration intentionally aggravated the situation by establishing a policy of, not racial equality, but black supremacy, across the South. • In order to defend themselves in this second war of widespread authoritarianism, lawlessness, corruption, and misgovernment, the South raised an underground counter-Reconstruction army of some 500,000 men (of all races), one known as the "Invisible Empire.” • Thanks to the heroic efforts of traditional Southern men and women (and even a few Conservative Yankees—then Democrats), the Left's radical Reconstruction revolution ultimately failed. • Many of the social, racial, and economic problems plaguing the U.S. today began during Reconstruction, and, in fact, the Left is still using the same nefarious tactics it did then, and for the same goal: the attainment of political supremacy. For instance, as these words are being recorded in the Summer of 2023, the Left is calling on Reconstruction law (namely, the Enforcement Acts of 1870 and 1871, as well as the Fourteenth Amendment) to indict former President Donald Trump. • Reconstruction of the South continues into the 21st Century with, for example, the tearing down of Confederate monuments, the banning of Confederate flags, the slander of Southern heroes, the misrepresentation of beloved Confederates, the desecration of Confederate graves, and the suppression of factual Southern history books like this one—which is already being censored and banned. In his sweeping work Twelve Years in Hell: Victorian Southerners Expose the Myth of Reconstruction, 1865-1877, the author-editor, award-winning historian Lochlainn Seabrook, addresses these and hundreds of other issues related to the darkest, most shockingly debauched and tragic period in American history. The real story, which thoroughly contradicts the manufactured one found in conventional history books, is told through the eyes of 125 individuals who lived through Reconstruction; mainly Southern men and women, but also a number of Yankees and even a few foreigners. To aid the reader in what is for most people a confusing and little understood subject, Mr. Seabrook includes discussions on events and developments that occurred before and after Reconstruction, along with a fascinating in-depth introduction, hundreds of notes, an exhaustive index, an important appendix, an inclusive bibliography, and rare photos and illustrations from the time period, many with information-packed captions. Based on eyewitness accounts and divided into two major sections, one comprised of essays, the second containing personal views, this is the only modern, purely Southern, historically accurate work on Reconstruction, and, like so many other books by Mr. Seabrook, is sure to become a classic in Southern literature. Twelve Years in Hell is available in paperback and hardcover. (All text and images copyright © Sea Raven Press) Click on “Reviews 2” to see what people are saying about this book.

“Col. Seabrook hits another home run with his latest book, adding yet another weapon to our literary defense of the South: Twelve Years in Hell: Victorian Southerners Expose the Myth of Reconstruction, 1865-1877. It takes enormous drive and courage to write a voluminous work on a complex topic like Reconstruction, one that is both gloomy and heartbreaking - which is why even most 19th-Century Southern writers couldn’t bring themselves to do it. Kudos to Col. Seabrook for taking on the challenge! Since almost nothing you’ve been taught about Reconstruction is true, this book promises to be one of the most revealing reads you’ll ever experience.” - THE PUBLISHER, SEA RAVEN PRESS
