President Lincoln did not call his cabinet for a meeting on July 22, 1862 to advise him on emancipation of the slaves, but rather to tell them that he had decided on a "war measure" to free the slaves in the states in rebellion.
Kirkpatrick Sales divides his book into the the resulting transformation and escalation of the war. He tells of horrors of the war and how both the the black and white citizens suffered together. Except for the Freedmen's Bureau, little preparation was made to help the ex-slaves. For example, there were only 100 doctors for the 3.5 million black population, and 1 teacher for every 100 students. Emancipation Hell tells the documented story of the cruel poverty and deprivation of the black and white southern people that lasted well into the 20th century.

This book exposes new light on President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation, contrasting the commonly held perception of humanitarianism versus the hard reality of a war tactic. This book is recommended by the Society of Independent Southern Historians. To see other Society recommended works, go to their website at SouthernHistorians.org .

A brief but detailed account of events surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation. Sale's analysis helps one appreciate what happen to the South and the US as a result of the manner in which slavery was abolished.

Easy short read, but more of a summary of Lincoln's treachery. Makes good on exposing what Lincoln's bogus "Proclamation" did to the very folks that it claimed to benefit. For a full analysis a better choice would be DiLorenzo's "The Real Lincoln".
Sic Semper Tyrannis!!!!

Excellent review of the proclamation. Incisive and straightforward. Unburdened from the wildly held myths about the document. I found it both intensely interesting and refreshing.

Emancipation Hell , by Kirkpatrick Sale is an excellent writing about the Truth of the Lincoln Proclamation regarding the "rue" regarding the issue of slavery and the Civil War. It should be taught in all history classes in all public schools. But it would not be politically correct in today's world. But I believe in telling the Truth, and this writing is the Truth.
