If you're a Southern parent who's fed up with the Yankee myths, distortions, lies, and anti-South propaganda your child is being taught at school about the Civil War, then "Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe" is for you. Award-winning author and Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook has created an incomparable guide specifically for Southern children, one that teaches them the Truth about Lincoln's War - from the South's perspective! Written for ages 8-12 (grades 2-6), the book is conveniently divided into 6 sections and 37 chapters, and covers all of the salient facts and events of the War. Included are chapters on the causes that led up to the conflict, the real origins of American slavery, the truth about Southern slavery, the secession of the Southern states, descriptions of significant battles, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln's criminal behavior, black Confederates, Robert E. Lee's surrender, the everyday life of a Confederate soldier, and Confederate weaponry. Seabrook also provides detailed information on the many suppressed elements of the War, including discussions on the Constitution, politics, and American history, covering "politically incorrect" facts that your child will never hear in school. Profusely illustrated, this children's version of Seabrook's blockbuster, "Everything You Were Taught About the Civil Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!," explodes the Northern fairy tales that were created to hide the Truth about the War for Southern Independence and the atrocities committed by the Union. "Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War," the result of some 20 years of study and research, will not only help educate your youngsters about the real Civil War, it will also teach them about the traditional values that have always been so important here in Dixie: love of God, country, and family, respect for our Southern heritage, pride in our Confederate history, and a reverence for our Southern ancestors. Adults will benefit from reading Seabrook's South-friendly book as well, especially non-Southerners who are interested in learning more about the Southern view of Lincoln's War. Includes a glossary, index, and bibliography. Perfect for homeschooling families. "Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe" is destined to become a standard in American literature. Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 45 books. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Mr. Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the runaway bestseller "Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition."
