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
Author John Remington Graham is a former law professor and an experienced trial lawyer. A specialist in British, American, and Canadian constitutional law and history, he resides with his wife in Quebec, Canada.

I consumed many books on the subject, traced many family records, and weaved a Social Science Project out of my genealogy database.
There was always the feeling I didn't have it all yet! The thread of "Follow the Money", was there, but not the how and who. My gut feeling was the powerful Roman English money cartel in 1861-1865 took back the Colony of America and reversed the Revolutionary War. Yet, I had until this book, no input to justify this notion.
Now I do, thank you John Remington Graham.
Is it Believable? My answer is a resounding yes. After reading "Blood Money" I came across an excerpt from War is a Racket 1935; reprint, 2003)
by Two-Time Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient:
Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC [Retired]. Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 - June 21, 1940), nicknamed "The Fighting Quaker" and "Old Gimlet Eye," was a Major General in the U.S. Marine Corps and, at the time of his death, the most decorated Marine in U.S. history.
In his 1935 book, War is a Racket, Butler presented an exposé and trenchant condemnation of the profit motive behind warfare. One of Butler's most widely quoted statements:
I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.Read more ›
One negative is that the book is too short; Enough to wet the appetite for more research. My recommendation is for individuals to stop drinking the "kool aid" of U.S. history/propaganda and read this book!
