How Gen. Robert E. Lee Really Viewed Slavery

I really enjoy reading history as well as biographies of historical figures, especially those of American history. I know, nerdy. Maybe, but there it is. I’ve also always had an especial interest in listening to others when they speak of it in support of some view they hold dear in relation to current events and […]

Thank God and Take Courage

What more glorious reason for thanking God and taking courage than the prospect of the Lord bringing eternal victory by the salvation of souls.  How desperately we need such a work in our present spiritual nightmare.  There is good hope, for the Lord delights to show His mercy in the darkest hours.  Our ancestors witnessed […]

In the Works: The Racism and Historical Ignorance of Thabiti Anyabwile & Doug Wilson

Well, a few days ago, I posted this letting you know that, Lord willing, I fully intend to address the historically inaccurate, continuously racist and pro-abolitionist flavored language that continues to dishonor the historical, godly men and leaders of the South during the War of Northern Aggression, passing along and perpetuating non-stop a solicitous, vile and intellectually […]

Reconstruction: The Conquest of the Southern Mind

The North defeated the South in war, crushed and humiliated it in peace, and waged war against it a war of intellectual and spiritual conquest.

Gospel Tracts: The Silent Preacher

Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. – Ecc. 11:1 (ESV) The smallest tract may be the stone in David’s sling. In the hands of Christ it may bring down a giant’s soul. – Robert Murray M`Cheyne Never underestimate the use of Gospel tracts. They have been used […]

A Sesquicentennial Celebration

You may have noticed recently an increase of civil war related posts here on the blog. There’s a reason for that. This year marks the Sesquicentennial of the war of northern aggression, a far more appropriate label since the term ‘civil war’ is not quite accurately descriptive enough for me, and let’s face it, there […]

Six Myths About Abraham Lincoln

There is a good reason why the Lincoln legend has taken on such mythical proportions: Much of what Americans think they know about Abraham Lincoln is in fact a myth. Let’s consider a few of the more prominent ones. Myth #1: Lincoln invaded the South to free the slaves. Ending slavery and racial injustice is […]

Slavery Myths

I was abruptly reminded this past week of the general ignorance of American history among our young people, specifically in regards to slavery in America and its relation to what those truly educated will correctly refer to as the “War of Northern Aggression.” The fact is, myths propagated by the public educational system still pervade […]

Independent? Of What?

Just a reminder to you as you celebrate this weekend our nation’s independence from the British: The independence you celebrate we lost in the War of Northern Aggression after President Lincoln raised an army and invaded our own country, to rape, plunder and pillage the farms, families and land of the South in order to […]
