This book describes the unnecessary actions of Abraham Lincoln in causing and pursuing the greatest American crime of the nineteenth century, the American Civil war and secondly its cover-up by his cabinet and all the sycophantic historians following. My extensive reading on the Civil War and visiting the Gettysburg battlefield left me aghast as to the number of soldiers, the cream of. American manhood, were sacrificed and wasted upon the numerous battlefields••••• 600,000 plus, more dead than all American wars combined. Yet historians pass this off as justifiable homicide, and a small price to pay to achieve freedom for four million slaves. To me this is sheer blasphemy! According to 'the philosophical principles espoused by Jean Jacques Rousseau, John Locke, Thomas Hobbes etc., the Thirteen Colonies claimed their natural right to declare their independence fro. the Mother Country, Britain. and establish their own right to self-determination. The Declaration of Independence, beginning "When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People t() dissolve the Political Bands which have connected the. with another" etc., says it all. (Interestingly Texas used almost identical language in their declaration to be free from Mexico.) But men the South had the audacity to declare these same fundamental rights an enraged Lincoln denied it to them thereby plunging the nation in the worst case of fratricide the world has ever known through his scorched-earth policy. Using the clever battle-cry. "The Nation must be preserved" he convinced the Nation as to the urgency of crushing the South.
