Today educated individuals know that Abraham Lincoln didn’t “preserve the Union” or “abolish slavery.” What then is the true legacy of his war? As award-winning historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook reveals in his poignant bestselling pictorial, The Unholy Crusade, it was Lincoln’s illegal, unnecessary, and merciless destruction of the South and her people.
As proof, Colonel Seabrook provides hundreds of 19th-Century photos and drawings of the North’s four-year demolition of Dixie, ranging from the ransacking and burning of thousands of private Southern homes and businesses, to the bombing of countless mills, factories, trains, ships, roads, depots, forts, docks, bridges, warehouses, communications, churches, banks, and even cemeteries. Southern libraries, universities, hospitals, livestock, and even family pets were wantonly destroyed by Union troops as well. And let us not forget the many incidents of the unlawful arrest, abuse, torture, rape, and murder of scores of innocent Southern civilians - of all ages and races.
Why? What did this overt Yankee terrorism, this mindless ruination of the South, have to do with saving the country or emancipation? This emotionally powerful, lavishly illustrated book answers the question!
The Unholy Crusade is a must-read for all those interested in the truth behind Lincoln’s War on the Constitution and the Confederacy. Like Colonel Seabrook’s other Civil War books, this well-researched, historically accurate work includes a descriptive introduction, copious notes, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive index. Destined to become an American classic. Available in paperback and hardcover.
