In a thorough and well-researched argument, Walter Donald Kennedy, the controversial co-author of the bestselling The South Was Right!, again sets the record straight about the legendary figure known as “Honest Abe.” Using historical documents, personal testimonies, and even quotes from Lincoln himself, Kennedy delivers truth after shocking truth about the little-known dark side of America’s sixteenth president. Far from the human rights champion that people suppose him to be, Abraham Lincoln actually attacked free speech, imprisoned innocent men, and murdered Native Americans. He never advocated for African American citizenship, and, in fact, the Emancipation Proclamation never freed a single slave.
While these accusations may seem too incredible to be true, Rekilling Lincoln lays out the evidence clearly and convincingly. It leaves readers wondering if everything they thought they knew about the Civil War was just, as the saying goes, the winners writing the history books. After all, there are two sides to every story, and the story of Abraham Lincoln just got a whole lot more interesting.
