Praise for Blood Money: The Civil War and the Federal Reserve
By John Remington Graham, author of A Constitutional History of Secession
"In this scholarly work of a heretofore neglected aspect of America's costliest conflict, Mr. Graham is more than equal to his subject. His obvious gift of analysis will impress the reader, and his conclusions will astound even the most dedicated students of the War Between the States. Intellectual in style, yet fluid and highly readable, Mr. Graham's findings challenge conventional thought. Not for the delicate sensibilities of the politically correct, Mr. Graham's conclusions will disturb some and infuriate others, but students of the war with the guts and gumption to peruse it will be amply rewarded. The evidence that he brings into the court of public opinion is irrefutable and demands a verdict. A remarkable tour de force!"
-Tommy Curtis, first lieutenant commander, Louisiana Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans
"If understanding what fuels the political process is the objective, this book is a must read. All acknowledge that the current state of the American union of states is dire. Offensive wars, ostensibly to promote global democracy, ballooning deficits, pervasive corruption, and expanding entitlements are some of the signs. Jeffersonian republicanism, the constitutional rule of law, and real statesmanship are distant memories, displaced by usurping money-grubbing stockjobbers, Wall Street warmongers, and 'benevolent' tyrants. Mr. Graham clarifies this reality by exposing the moneyed interests pulling the strings of national politics for their own personal gain at the expense of Americans' fundamental rights and liberties. And, thankfully, he presents his readers with a reasoned and constitutional means to recover those rights and liberties."
-Marshall DeRosa, professor of political science, Florida Atlantic University
