"Give This Book to a Yankee:  A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners"


By Lochlainn Seabrook - 78 pages - Illustrated 


Award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook has done it again. He's given traditional Southerners yet another book that not only rectifies many of the notoriously false Yankee myths floating around out there, but one that makes Southerners genuinely proud to be Southern!


This brief work, provocatively entitled Give This Book to a Yankee! A Southern Guide to the Civil War For Northerners, is a loose distillation of his international blockbuster, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! Pared down several hundred pages for quick reading, as the title suggests, Give This Book to a Yankee! makes an excellent gift for your Northern friends, or even for fellow Southerners who have been inculcated with pro-North nonsense, and who need reeducating as to Dixie's authentic history.


The book's nineteen chapters cover the most salient aspects of what Colonel Seabrook likes to call "Lincoln's War," including such topics as the true cause behind the conflict, the legality of secession, race relations in the Old South and the Old North, myths about so-called "slavery," the real origins of the American abolition movement, Jeff Davis, Abe Lincoln, the Emancipation Proclamation, the treatment of blacks in the Confederate and Union armies, the KKK, Reconstruction, and much more. For scholars the volume comes with over 200 endnotes and a bibliography. The Foreword is by African-American educator Karen Cooper of the Virginia Flaggers.


Heavily researched and illustrated, Give This Book to a Yankee! is an essential weapon anyone can use to defend Dixie and the Southern Cause, making it a must-have for traditional Southerners, Civil War buffs, and teachers. Keep several copies on hand to give out. You never know when you're going to bump into an unenlightened Yank or reconstructed Southerner!


The red cover is the paperback, purple, hardcover.
