  • This isn t so much a book as it is a collection of documents with a few annotations mixed in That being said, it s an important collection of documents that all U.S History teachers should read Throughout my entire schooling I was told that the causes of the Civil War were multiple and complex, and that the Confederate cause couldn t be characterized as simply protecting slavery These documents help bust the State s Rights myth and expose the Lost Cause as a pro slavery movement, period Highly r [...]


  • This is a really excellent collection of primary sources The sources from about 1840 to 1880 show that if you could ask the actual people who supported secession what their reasons were for doing so, they wouldn t say states rights or tariffs But they would say slavery and white supremacy They were actually AGAINST states rights, because in the secession documents themselves they list their reasons as other states don t allow slavery, other states refuse to return runaway slaves, territories are [...]


  • This is a book with a clear agenda and how nice to read a book intended for use in school that states its agenda clearly and simply from the start , and that, in large part, is to disprove the increasingly pervasive myth that the South seceded from the union to protect states rights, and not to defend slavery and white supremacy To support the slavery thesis, Loewen and Sebesta provide dozens upon dozens of devastating primary sources which, taken together, make it abundantly clear that slavery [...]


  • An excellent collection of documents for anyone interested in the history of obfuscation by white supremacists and Confederate apologists regarding the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Fusion The declarations of secession are easy enough to find with a Google search, but there are many other documents in here that make it a worthy addition to any library.


  • A must have source for material relating to the Civil War I did not technically read this as it a collection of documents but it will make a very welcome addition as a reference source Very convincingly makes the case that the Civil War was about slavery and that all other arguments are obfuscations of this.


  • An important collection of primary documents, ranging from the 1820s to the 1990s, detailing the facts behind secession I ll give you a hint it was 99 and 44 100% purely about slavery and the post war morphing of the cause to that of white supremacy and states rights which is funny because an oft cited reason for secession at the time was the Northern states foot dragging when it came to the Fugitive Slave Act.Loewen doesn t write nearly enough for my taste, his works are eminently readable.
