If you got your knowledge of American slavery from school textbooks or mainstream history books, you can be sure that most of this information is not only incorrect, but was intentionally distorted and rewritten to conceal the truth. Why? Because the Liberal establishment does not want you to know that the American Civil War was not fought over slavery, that Abraham Lincoln was not the “Great Emancipator,” that American slavery got its start in the North, that the American abolition movement was born in the South, that true slavery was never practiced in the South, that white racism was far more prevalent in the North than in the South, and that hundreds of thousands of blacks fought for the Confederacy, among scores of other irrefutable facts.
To correct these errors, award-winning historian and slavery scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook has written Slavery 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America’s ‘Peculiar Institution’, which presents 84 key items about human bondage in the U.S. that have been diabolically deleted from our history books. A highly condensed version of his massive, detailed work, Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!, Slavery 101 brings the truth back to light, helping not only to re-balance our heavily biased, Northern-slanted history books, but aids in placing the South back in its rightful place on the stage of world history.
Generously illustrated with rare 19th-Century images, this brief but impactful assemblage of little known, seldom discussed facts also contains an index, notes, and a bibliography. Learn the truth for yourself: American slavery was nothing like you were taught! And this book provides the historical proof based on eyewitness accounts from those who lived at the time. Available in paperback and hardcover.
Civil War authority Lochlainn Seabrook, recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and a descendant of numerous Confederate soldiers, is the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford and the author of over 50 popular books which have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about American slavery, as well as the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage who is known as the “new Shelby Foote,” Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in the American Civil War, Confederate studies, Southern biography, and international slavery, and is the author of the international blockbuster, Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!

Slavery 101 by Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal winner Lochlainn Seabrook may be tiny little sliver of a volume but there is ample data and revealing truths … revealed. For you see, the contents of this book contradict what you were taught in school about the Civil War.
Far from being a battle over the liberation of black slaves, some noble war to bring about abolition, the so-called Civil War was a ridiculously bloody, nation-rending squall over economics. Simply put, the rightful secession of states whose original union established sovereignty was a threat to the northern economy, as well as a movement to heavily centralize federal power in the executive seat. Sadly, great strides in that direction were indeed made by Lincoln, far from the crusading friend of blacks he is usually said to be.
With big government, fed-centric politics and unignorable economic impact putting pressure on the direction of the nation, Lincoln (a despotic baboon, truth be told) used race as a hot button issue to prevent European intervention on the side of the south. But the fact of the matter is, any number of documented quotes from leaders on both sides of the Mason-Dixon firmly establishes that slavery was not a motive but rather a major gear in Lincoln’s disingenuous propaganda machine.
Besides the Civil War itself, the history of slavery in America (and beyond) is brimming with actual facts that contradict the popular version of events. The slave trade was conducted by the North. Black on black slavery was already afoot in Africa without any prompting from us. I could lay out tons of facts but that would be to give away the contents of this brief but bulging book of hidden history.
Suffice it to say the South was far less guilty than traditionally depicted, and the North far more so.
Seabrook strikes again with one of his enlightening volumes that help correct the unhistorical history shoved at us any time the topic of slavery and the American Civil War are broached.
