Wilson, distinguished professor emeritus of history, University of South Carolina "A provocative book challenging the actions of one of America's most beloved presidents." -WMOT-FM 89.5, Middle Tennessee Public Radio In this comprehensive volume, John Avery Emison sets the record straight on the legality of Southern secession. He laments the unnecessary loss of 620,000 lives, the burning of cities, and the mass devastation to the South wreaked between the years of 1861 and 1865 by the North. A close examination of the true causes of the Civil War reveals that the fight was not one for racial justice but rather a battle over the economic disparities between the North and the South. By illustrating how Abraham Lincoln's tyrannical presidency paved the way for today's "Leviathan" government, Emison brings his subject into the twenty-first century and puts forth his fear for the future. Contrary to contemporary assumptions, secession was-and still is-within the rights of all states. The concept of sovereignty grants such powers to the states, not to the federal government. Emison explains the list of violations Lincoln committed in an effort to prevent the South's peaceful exit from the Union. These atrocious actions include blockading ports, arresting innocent citizens, suspending habeas corpus, suppressing newspapers, and, most notably, ordering a gruesome war without consent from Congress. Against a historical backdrop, the author credits the events and political figures that contributed to Lincoln's election. He references significant Supreme Court doctrines and delves into the depths of the US Constitution. Emison's arguments are backed by the analyses of notable legal historians such as Kenneth Stampp and Carl Wittke.

    Quite an amazing book about Lincoln's "indiscretions" as 16th POTUS. The book flies in the face of the "Lincoln Scholars" perspective. I have long said that Lincoln was one of, if not the worst Presidents this country has ever had. I know this subject is controversial to some, however if you open your mind and read this book with an open mind, you WILL at a minimum need to question your belief in "The Great Emancipator". Mr. Emison blows the lid off of the "conventional" Lincoln story. The book f Quite an amazing book about Lincoln's "indiscretions" as 16th POTUS. The book flies in the face of the "Lincoln Scholars" perspective. I have long said that Lincoln was one of, if not the worst Presidents this country has ever had. I know this subject is controversial to some, however if you open your mind and read this book with an open mind, you WILL at a minimum need to question your belief in "The Great Emancipator". Mr. Emison blows the lid off of the "conventional" Lincoln story. The book focuses on the many of the Unconstitutional and even treasonous acts committed by Lincoln and his minions. Although many reviewers comment on the "German connection" made by this author, I found that there was one chapter about it and then sporadic mentioning in the latter chapters. The majority of the book is about Lincoln's interpretation, and subsequent disregard of the Constitution and the concept of State's Right and sovereignty. The book explores the incongruous statements by Lincoln sympathizers past and present. The author gives you examples of "Lincoln Scholar" authors and their statements and shows you how their arguments do not hold water. My opinion is based on many books I have read. When viewing secession of the Southern States compared to the secession of the original 13 colonies, it is clear to see that the South was well within their rite to dissolve their affiliation with the Northern States. Mr. Emmison explains the basis of "equal footing" where all additional states brought in after the initial ratification were so brought in on an "equal footing" as the other existing states. In addition to that, there was a lack of "unmistakablility" by the States in the Constitution. Finally the precedent of Legislative Entrenchment makes it clear that no previous legislative body could have more power that any future body. With all of the aforementioned, it is clear from this book and many others that the North were the aggressors in this conflict. The North wanted to subdue and overthrow a duly elected government by force. It is clear that the war was not fought to free slaves as per the words of Mr. Lincoln himself and the actions he permitted as the commander in chief. I enjoyed this book because I am one of those who believe Lincoln was wrong for our country(s) and gets way too much credit for things he did, said, did not say and did not do. Most of the books about Lincoln try to show him as deity and that he could not do wrong. Those with even an elementary level of knowledge can see through that veil. The book is well written and I enjoyed it greatly.

    The title of this book lead me to believe that the majority of the book's content would detail Lincoln's numerous unconstitutional actions, which other books covered in more depth than this. The author gives a new unique perspective on the legal justification for secession, and details northern racism before the war, and does show somewhat how the German Forty-Eighters influenced his election (though there could've been more here I think).

The author gives a new unique perspective on the legal justification for secession, and details northern racism before the war, and does show somewhat how the German Forty-Eighters influenced his election (though there could've been more here I think). Most of the content of the book is devoted to secession, with two parts on that topic, and a final chapter on the modern federal leviathan that seems disjointed when taken with the rest of the book. The author goes into the CFR without much background, which I assume he has. The North American Union is mentioned without context to Lincoln, as is FBI entrapment in a few state cases, and then references to Wilson, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, and GW Bush on the last page without showing a linear development from Lincoln'S abuse of power to those presidents. The final chapter should've focused on Lincoln's legacy as developed by those and other presidents; that would've been more impactful.

    This one is a real eye opener. If you go into this as a closed minded Lincoln fanatic you will have a difficult time with this book. I study history to learn the truth. It is said that history is what someone has written or has said happened and the past is what actually happened. This book goes a long way to help steer you towards the truth of what happened leading up to and through the Civil War. It also shows why both of today's political parties are the party of Lincoln and powerful centrali This one is a real eye opener.

    You don't hear this stuff in school. Most of us were taught that Abraham Lincoln was the best President of all time. Mr Emison proves, yes proves, that this is not the case. 'Honest Abe' operated outside the Constitution more than any other President, perhaps excepting the current occupant of the WH. If you have any interest in history you will appreciate the scholarship and research that has gone into this fine volume.

    An excellent compilation of facts, written with the petulance and syntactical ability of the average six year old.
