Diligent research by the authors shows the spotlight not only on the marxist/socialists who entered the United States after the failed Revolutions of 1848 in Europe, but also digs up evidence of home-grown experiments in American socialism in the early 1800s.
Readers may be surprised to find out that just how many connections existed between the Republican Party of the Civil War era and the failed revolutionaries (the "48ers") who came to the United States either by choice or by exile. And while the authors do not label Lincoln himself as an avowed marxist, he certainly enjoyed the support of the vast majority of socialist exiles, both politically and militarily.
Especially interesting is the connection between these revolutionaries and the author of the Pledge of Allegiance. Read the book to find out more.
Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists: Marxism in the Civil War, is a work likely to provoke second thoughts about the preconceived historical beliefs about the origins of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln and the War Between the States.
