|For one hundred and forty-eight
years American students have been fed a one-sided version of the history
concerning “slavery and Lincoln’s war”. Not that what has been written
is not necessarily untrue or inaccurate. It is quite simply, incomplete.
We are all “spoon fed” with
the theory that millions of Southerners, white and black, were killed,
maimed, starved and made homeless in order to “free the slaves”. Also,
we are told that Lincoln’s War was unavoidable, because the South wanted
a fight and started a fight. Really? Was there no other way to resolve
the problems of the day? Did no one try?
Was the South the only place
in North America where slavery existed? Did the South import their slaves,
or did someone else ship them through the “middle passage”? Were peace
commissioners sent to Washington to sue for peace? Did the South “declare”
war on the North, or just ask to “be let alone”? Was any effort made to
acquire a “cease fire” during the four gory years of this most unnecessary
This book reveals many facts
we have never been taught about these two subjects. The sources and facts
quoted are referenced in a bibliography which relies mainly on Northern
and Union records and books.

What does it take to be recognized
as a historian? A PhD, of course, and a lifetime spent reading and researching
through piles of boring books; then, publication of another boring book.
And “we the people” are expected to take everything the historian writes
and utters and accept it as the “gospel” without question. But, what about
the facts which our historians ignore or those which don’t “fit” their
Why Lincoln Chose War is
not boring. And, it contains many, many facts which you were never taught
in any government school. For instance, why did the perpetrators of American
slavery, the New Englanders, become so vehemently opposed to the institution
and foster a “hate campaign” against the entire South which continues to
this day? Why was a new Constitution which legalized slavery and the slave
trade ratified by eight “free states” which claimed to abhor the institution?
How did Major Anderson and
his men receive food supplies at Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter? Why was
their alleged “starvation” and lack of supplies not publicized until just
four days before April 12, 1861? Why was a war fleet dispatched to Charleston
to deliver “biscuit and pork” when an unarmed supply ship could have sufficed?
Read this book and learn
what public schools never teach in history class. Determine for yourself
“why Lincoln chose war.” And, it was a choice.
