Editorial Reviews


"No honest student of American history can avoid coming to terms with this work." --Clyde N. Wilson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of South Carolina

From the Inside Flap

"A provocative book challenging the actions of one of America's most beloved presidents."
-WMOT-FM 89.5, Middle Tennessee Public Radio

"Provides a critical perspective on some of the wartime actions of the Lincoln administration . . . Emison has done us a great service by reminding us of one the most shameful incidents in the history of America."
-Jewish Georgian

Despite common misconceptions, Southern states were within their rights to withdraw from the Union. In this comprehensive volume, author John Avery Emison supports the South's decision to secede from the controlling federal government; condemns the response of President Lincoln, which resulted in murder, plundering, and mass devastation; and emphasizes that the Civil War was not a battle for racial justice but a conflict caused by the economic dissimilarities between the North and South.

In a series of riveting chapters, Emison explains why each of Lincoln's Machiavellian actions, such as the declaration of war without a vote of Congress, the destructive invasion of states by Union intruders, and the blockade of Southern ports, were illegal. He supports his theories with the Supreme Court doctrines of unmistakability, legislative entrenchment, and equal footing. Emison explains why the often-referenced court case of Texas v. White should not be used to debate the legality of secession. Additional historical analysis is provided by such notable historians as Kenneth Stampp, Leon Litwack, and John Marszalek.

Emison claims that not only did the war devastate the South, but also it opened the door to Lincoln's establishment of a totalitarian regime. In his pungent and engrossing book, the author explores the legality of secession, Lincoln's horrific war crimes against Southern civilians, and the controlling central government of present-day America.

John Avery Emison is an environmental scientist who has worked as a science reporter for the Tennessee Oak Ridger and as an editor of a business newspaper in eastern Tennessee. He has long been a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. A member of the Abbeville Institute and the Sigma Xi scientific research society, Emison actively pursues scholarship in Southern history and constitutional law as an avocation. A sixth-generation Tennessean, he has been passionate about history and land conservation his entire life. Emison graduated with a BA in liberal arts from Union University, MS in physical geography from Memphis State University, and PhD in resource geography from Oregon State University. He is also the author of Pelican's The Martin Luther King Congressional Cover-Up: The Railroading of James Earl Ray. Emison resides in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The mask of Lincoln so carefully painted by those in the North who wanted him "deified" as the "Savior" of the Union is falling away. He was not only NOT the savior, but he was the "Destroyer" of republic which he swore to protect. We are where we are today because of his efforts to have the federal government rule over us, take away the given rights to the states, and crush the same type of movement that lead the original colonies away from Great Britian. The ability to seceed is not treason, but reason. We, the southron states, reasoned that our best hope of continued self rule was our removal from the federal government. The right to choose the type of government you want to live under is fundamental.
Lincoln over us all and above all... read and learn. The south was right - continue the fight!

If there was a 3.5-star rating, I'd give it to Dr. Emison for this work.

This well-documented, trenchantly reasoned work concerning The War to Enslave the States, has only two drawbacks. The first is to mistake a dog-faced, butcherous puppet for his shrewd puppeteers. Dr. Emison does not attempt to expose the man Lincoln as thoroughly as DiLorenzo does in Lincoln Unmasked: What You're Not Supposed to Know About Dishonest Abe or as Durand does with his exhaustive biography of the consummate religious impostor, in America's Caesar. Yet I believe John Emison gives too much credit to the puppet -- as Americans have done with our presidents since time-out-of-mind.

Liberal naysayers may pooh-pooh 'conspiracy theories' all they like, but the definition of conspiracy definitely fits what the banking industry with the complicity of many presidents and congresses have done to taxpayers for a century, to the tune of trillions per year. No president has such power; only a sufficient number of billionaires with countless underlings can pull off such stuff. As I explain in Chapter 9 of my book This Bloodless Liberty, Lincoln was only the puppet operative; The War to Enslave The States was intended by Lincoln's (and Congress') mercantilist masters, to do just that: enslave the formerly sovereign states. It worked; and the eternal donkey-elephant war metanarrative carries the same torch, world without end.

Anyone desiring to have an objective understanding of who we are and what we are as a nation, would do well in reading the book Lincoln Über Alles. Why? Because in it contains not only rarely known facts of history pertaining to Mr. Lincoln and his era, but also an analysis in understanding our times in regard to that history.

Within the pages of nine chapters is the "Introduction" which presents the thesis and is expounded upon in the chapters which follow. Some of the topics discussed in this book include: an expose' of the hypocrisy of the "Free States" of the Union in the matter of race relations; the influence of German revolutionaries who emigrated to the U.S. and who were instrumental in the role of the election of Mr. Lincoln as the 16th President; the legality of secessionism from a Constitutional and judicial viewpoint; war crimes commented by the Union army - the concept of total war.

Where appropriate, many of the chapters contain a "Summary" or "Conclusion" at the end of the chapter. The book also contains photographs of some of the prominent men which are discussed in the book.

I thoroughly enjoy reading, and appreciate, this book; Mr. Emison used a no-nonsense, straight forward style in writing, and was very systematic in reveling the information from his research, which will enhance the reader's interest.

This book is well-documented, and is worth the time invested in reading and self-educating.

Quite an amazing book about Lincoln's "indiscretions" as 16th POTUS. The book flies in the face of the "Lincoln Scholars" perspective. I have long said that Lincoln was one of, if not the worst Presidents this country has ever had. I know this subject is controversial to some, however if you open your mind and read this book with an open mind, you WILL at a minimum need to question your belief in "The Great Emancipator".

Mr. Emison blows the lid off of the "conventional" Lincoln story. The book focuses on the many of the Unconstitutional and even treasonous acts committed by Lincoln and his minions. Although many reviewers comment on the "German connection" made by this author, I found that there was one chapter about it and then sporadic mentioning in the latter chapters. The majority of the book is about Lincoln's interpretation, and subsequent disregard of the Constitution and the concept of State's Right and sovereignty.

The book explores the incongruous statements by Lincoln sympathizers past and present. The author gives you examples of "Lincoln Scholar" authors and their statements and shows you how their arguments do not hold water.

My opinion is based on many books I have read. When viewing secession of the Southern States compared to the secession of the original 13 colonies, it is clear to see that the South was well within their rite to dissolve their affiliation with the Northern States. Mr. Emmison explains the basis of "equal footing" where all additional states brought in after the initial ratification were so brought in on an "equal footing" as the other existing states. In addition to that, there was a lack of "unmistakablility" by the States in the Constitution.
