Learn the Hidden Truth About Lincoln’s War on the Constitution and the American People.

This book blows the lid off The Great Yankee Coverup!

Nashville, Tennessee, Sea Raven Press, April 23, 2015

The American Civil War was not over slavery or preserving the Union! According to the latest nonfiction American history book from Sea Raven Press, for 150 years mainstream historians have been intentionally hiding the truth. The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn’t Want You to Know About Lincoln’s War!, by award-winning author and historian Lochlainn Seabrook (recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal), reveals this conspiracy to suppress the facts about the War, while exploding hundreds of falsehoods and myths that have been presented to us as “true history.”

Using as his sources the original writings and speeches of numerous 18th- and 19th-Century individuals, from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Frederick Douglass, and Jefferson Davis, to Ulysses S. Grant, Mary Chesnut, Alexander H. Stephens, and Abraham Lincoln, the author shows that, contrary to popular belief, the South fought to preserve the Constitution while the North fought to overturn it; the U.S.A. was created as a confederacy and was widely known as the “Confederate States of America,” which is why the South adopted this name when it seceded from the Union; the Southern states seceded legally with no intention of destroying the Union, their only goal being to perpetuate the original confederate republic formed by the Founding Fathers; Confederate President Jefferson Davis was a political Conservative who adopted a black child during the War and was already committed to abolishing slavery in early 1865, months before the War ended.

Also, according to the author, Union President Abraham Lincoln was a political Liberal who barred blacks from the White House, consistently blocked black civil rights, wanted to put African-Americans in their own all-black state, spent his entire adult life trying to deport blacks, said if there was a war between the races he would stand with his own, used slaves to complete the dome on the Capitol Building, referred to Native-Americans as “savages” and blacks as an “inferior race,” and was a leader in the American Colonization Society, whose stated goal was to make the U.S. “white from coast to coast”; the American slave trade and American slavery got their start in the North and the American abolition movement began in the South; the Confederacy enlisted blacks before the Union, and five times as many blacks fought for the South as for the North; the Emancipation Proclamation freed no slaves and that was not its true intention to begin with. Due to Lincoln’s inhumane abolition plan (as he put it, “let ’em root, pig, or perish”), twenty-five percent of all Southern blacks died as a result of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Why has this information, taken from the eyewitness accounts of famous American figures, been concealed? Because exposing it would reveal the truth about the Civil War; namely, that it was an illegal and unnecessary conflict started by left-wing progressive Abraham Lincoln in an attempt to install big government at Washington, D.C. The book contains a comprehensive bibliography, an index, and extensive endnotes, with a foreword by Thomas Strain Jr., Lt. Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
