The American Civil War commenced with the victory of the Union and irrevocably reshaped the history of the United States. While this event in the history of the United States brought significant change, it also resulted in the bloodiest war America has ever known. Author Stephen Miklosik, M.D. invites readers of his book, “The Lie That Is Lincoln”, to look at another side of the Civil War and examine the impact of President Lincoln’s decisions to thousands of lives.

In writing his book, Miklosik exposes the dubious actions of Lincoln in causing and pursuing the American Civil War and the cover-up conducted by his cabinet members and biased historians. An amateur historian, the author’s interest in the life of Lincoln was ignited after a visit to the killing fields of Gettysburg.

Miklosik emphasizes that the death of over 600,000 because of the war was not “justifiable homicide” as what most historians would suggest. The Declaration of Independence stipulates that “when in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected with another”. This same stipulation was used by Texas in their declaration of freedom from Mexico. However, the Confederate states were denied this right and, using a clever ploy to “preserve the nation,” Lincoln successfully rallied a movement intended to crush the South.

Provocative, insightful and carefully-researched, “The Lie That Is Lincoln” is an invitation to reevaluate a momentous episode in American History in a different, more objective perspective.
