Hidden Historical Facts About Abraham Lincoln, The American Civil War, Slavery and The Confederate States

Abraham Lincoln is commonly thought about as a hero, a man of God, a man of freedom and honor, a man who freed the black slaves from American oppression. This is what we have been taught in school and by society in general. And we were taught that the American civil war was fought in order to free the slaves. But we have discovered some hidden facts that are contrary to traditional thinking. Which side is true?
This article will provide historical details that are purposely hidden from us. But nevertheless, facts. Provable facts. Not conspiracy.
We ask that you please read this entire page and carefully examine all of these facts before making a final decision about what we are saying.
And we encourage you to first begin with prayer before reading this article.

Section 1: Abraham Lincoln's God

The most important thing that we must examine is Abraham Lincoln's religion. Did he believe in God? And which god? Was he a Christian? Did he believe in the bible? Most people have been taught that he was a very good Christian. But is that true?

William Herndon, Lincoln's personal law partner, wrote a biography presenting Lincoln as an unbeliever. Herndon wrote that Lincoln claimed God could not forgive sins, that Lincoln had blasphemed against Jesus, and that Lincoln had stated he was an atheist/infidel.

“Lincoln told me a thousand times that he did not believe the Bible was a revelation from God as the Christian word contends" ... and ... "Jesus was not the son of God.”
“Lincoln was a deep grounded infidel. He disliked and despised churches. He never entered a church except to scoff and ridicule. On coming from a church he would mimic the preacher. Before running for any office, he wrote a book against Christianity in the Bible. He showed it to some of his friends and read extracts.”
Source: William H. Herndon, Life of Lincoln, 489.

In 1835, Lincoln wrote a small book on "infidelity" (not believing in God and religion), and intended to have it published. This book was an attack upon the whole grounds of Christianity, and especially was an attack upon the idea that Jesus was the Christ/Messiah, the true and only-begotten son of God. Lincoln was at that time in New Salem, keeping store for Mr. Samuel Hill, a merchant and postmaster. Mr. Hill knew that the book would destroy Lincoln's career, and therefore destroyed the book in the wood stove.

Herndon and other witnesses close to Lincoln had taken great efforts to distinguish the fact from the fiction and report only the truth. Herndon's account corroborates many others and I believe it is more reliable than not.

Lincoln's first law partner, John T. Stuart, wrote Herndon that Lincoln "was an avowed and open infidel, and sometimes bordered on atheism; ... went further against Christian beliefs and doctrines and principles than any man I ever heard; he shocked me... Lincoln always denied that Jesus was the Christ of God — denied that Jesus was the son of God as understood and maintained by the Christian Church."

Lincoln's private secretary, Col. John G. Nicolay also testifies in a letter dated May 27, 1865, that "Mr. Lincoln did not, to my knowledge, in any way change his religious ideas, opinions, or beliefs from the time he left Springfield to the day of his death."

His lifelong, very close friend and executor, Judge David Davis, affirmed the same: "He had no faith in the Christian sense of the term."

His biographer, Colonel Lamon, intimately acquainted with him in Illinois, and with him during all the years that he lived in Washington, says: "Never in all that time did he let fall from his lips or his pen an expression which remotely implied the slightest faith in Jesus as the son of God and the Savior of men." Both Lamon and William H. Herndon published biographies of their former colleague after his assassination relating their personal recollections of him. Each denied Lincoln's adherence to Christianity and characterized his religious beliefs as deist or skeptical.

Abraham Lincoln ran for Congress against the Rev. Peter Cartwright in the year 1846. In that contest, Abe was accused of being an infidel, if not an atheist. However, he never denied the accusation.
At one of Cartwright's revival meetings, the people were asked to stand if they wanted to go to Heaven, then to stand if they wanted to go to Hell (which of course no one stood). Lincoln stayed seated both times, to which Cartwright asked, "Mr. Lincoln, you have not expressed an interest in going to either Heaven or Hell. May I inquire as to where you do plan to go?" Lincoln replied: "I did not come here with the idea of being singled out, but since you ask, I will reply with equal candor. I intend to go to Congress."

Historian Mark Noll states that "Lincoln never joined a church nor ever made a clear profession of standard Christian belief." Noll quotes Lincoln's friend Jesse Fell:
"On the innate depravity of man, the character and office of the great head of the Church, the Atonement, the infallibility of the written revelation, the performance of miracles, the nature and design of ... future rewards and punishments ... and many other subjects, he held opinions utterly at variance with what are usually taught in the church."

Here is a vivid description of Lincoln's atheistic, infidel tendencies from a modern article:
The Salt Lake Tribune provides this vivid, yet portrait of the young Lincoln, before he began his career as a politician:

He became the village atheist. He carried a Bible only to argue against it. He was contentious and began living out what Winston Churchill would offer as a definition of a fanatic: "one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." People saw him on the streets of New Salem and quickly walked the other way.

Please consider these following excepts from private letters from Herndon to Mr. Remsburg, and published for the first time in "Abraham Lincoln: Was He a Christian?" in 1893:

... You should take it for granted, then, that I knew Mr. Lincoln well. During all this time, from 1834 to 1862, when I last saw him, he never intimated to me, either directly or indirectly, that he had changed his religious opinions. Had he done so had -- he let drop one word or look in that direction, I should have detected it.
I had an excellent private library, probably the best in the city for admired books. To this library Mr. Lincoln had, as a matter of course, full and free access at all times. I purchased such books as Locke, Kant, Fichte, Lewes; Sir William Hamilton's Discussions on Philosophy; Spencer's First Principles, Social Statics, etc.; Buckle's History of Civilization, and Lecky's History of Rationalism. I also possessed the works of Paine, Parker, Emerson and Strauss; Gregg's Creed of Christendom, McNaught on Inspiration, Volney's Ruins, Feuerbach's Essence of Christianity, and other works on Infidelity. Mr. Lincoln read some of these works. About the year 1843 he borrowed The Vestiges of Creation of Mr. James W. Keyes, of this city, and read it carefully. He subsequently read the sixth edition of this work, which I loaned him. Mr. Lincoln had always denied special creation, but from his want of education he did not know just what to believe. He adopted the progressive and development theory as taught more or less directly in that work. He despised speculation, especially in the metaphysical world. He was purely a practical man. He adopted Locke's notions as to his system of mental philosophy, with some modifications to suit his own views. He held that reason drew her references as to law, etc., from observations, experience and reflection on the facts and phenomena of Nature. He was a pure sensationalist, except as above. He was a materialist in his philosophy. He denied dualism, and at times immortality in any sense.
At one moment of his life I know that he was an Atheist. I was preparing a speech on Kansas, and in it, like nearly all reformers, I invoked God. He made me wipe out that word and substitute the word Maker, affirming that said Maker was a principle of the universe. When he went to Washington he did the same to a friend there.

Mr. Lincoln told me, over and over, that man has no freedom of the will, or, as he termed it, "No man has a freedom of mind." He was in one sense a fatalist, and so he died. He believed that he was under the thumb of Providence (which to him was but another name for fate). The longer he lived, the more firmly he believed it, and hence his oft invocation of God. But these invocations are no evidence to a rational mind that he adopted the blasphemy that God seduced his own daughter, begat a son on purpose to have mankind kill him, in order that he, God, might become reconciled to his own mistakes, according to the Christian view.

I have often said to you, and now repeat it, that Lincoln was a scientific materialist, i.e., that this was his tendency as opposed to the spiritualistic idea. Lincoln always contended that general and universal laws ruled the Universe -- always did -- do now -- and ever will. He was an Agnostic generally, sometimes an Atheist. (Brother Jared's note: Scientific materialism refers to a belief that everything is physical and God has no hand in world events; people who believe this are generally atheists believing in big bang theory, or else are deists who believe in a passive do-nothing watchmaker concept of God, which is the opposite of the loving, active Christian God. This section here is essentially saying that Lincoln was a fatalist/determinist, that he didn't believe in an active God, but rather that the universe is only a scientific experiment, or only a robotic machine, or, to use the modern analogy, only a computer simulation. This level of materialism is a belief which communists share with Lincoln.)

That Mr. Lincoln was an Infidel from 1834 to 1861, I know, and that he remained one to the day of his death, I honestly believe. I always understood that he was an Infidel, sometimes bordering on Atheism. I never saw any change in the man, and the change could not have escaped my observation had it happened.

He often said to me that the Christian religion was a dangerous element to deal with when aroused. ... His oft and oft invocations of God, his conversations with Christians, his apparent respect for Christianity, etc., were all means to an end. And yet sometimes he showed that he hated its nasal whines.

A gentleman of veracity in Washington told me this story and vouched for its truthfulness: "A tall saddle-faced man," he said, "came to Washington to pray with Lincoln, having declared this to be his intention at the hotel. About 10 o'clock a.m. the bloodless man, dressed in black, with white cravat, went to the White House, sent in his card, and was admitted. Lincoln glanced at the man and knew his motives in an instant. He said to him, angrily: 'What, have you, too, come to torment me with your prayers?' The man was squelched and said, 'No, Mr. Lincoln' -- lied out and out. Lincoln spoiled those prayers."

There is repeated above much of the same points about Lincoln's alleged nonadmittance and denial of Jesus the Christ, but I now call attention to this other point, repeated from the above letter from Herndon to Remsburg: Mr. Lincoln told me, over and over, that man has no freedom of the will, or, as he termed it, "No man has a freedom of mind."
This is a doctrine of communists and Freemasons (Hegelian materialism/determinism, i.e. "Providence"), a doctrine of demons, that they will live forever and that they have no control over their actions. It is a wicked mentality, fatalism, which denies God-given free will in order to justify their own sinful behavior. Why is Lincoln said to be repeating a doctrine of demons?

Moreover, there is concrete evidence that Lincoln was involved in witchcraft, even in the White House!
Lincoln's wife had multiple seances in the White House, trying to talk to the dead, which is explicitly forbidden in Scripture. It's reported that Lincoln attended at least 2 of them. If he had been a good Christian man as many people believe, then he would had put a stop to the demonic seances and would had forbidden them entirely. He was in charge!

Although he used the generic word "God" in his speeches, I can't find a single instance of Lincoln using the name of Jesus. (Don't believe me? Look at the Complete Works of Abraham Lincoln and run a search on it. You'll see it several times in the preface, which was not written or spoken by Lincoln, but you won't see Jesus name in what Lincoln actually said or wrote.)

Section 2: Abraham Lincoln's True Views About Slavery and Black People

Before the US civil war, Lincoln had made it clear that slavery was legal under the U.S. Constitution, and had pledged his support for a constitutional amendment that would forever ban the federal government from interfering with southern slavery.

From Lincoln's first inaugural speech: "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."

From the fourth Lincoln Douglas debate at Charleston on September 18, 1858, Lincoln said:
"While I was at the hotel today, an elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of producing a perfect equality between the negroes and white people. While I had not proposed to myself on this occasion to say much on that subject, yet as the question was asked me I thought I would occupy perhaps five minutes in saying something in regard to it. I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say, in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And in as much as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."

Lincoln's personally selected Secretary of State, William Seward, said, “The North has nothing to do with the Negroes. I have no more concern for them than I have for the Hottentots ... They are not of our race.”

Section 3: Slavery in the North

Most people are unaware of the fact that there were many black slaves in the northern states. Slavery was legal in the north for over two hundred years. Africans were sold in northern ports including Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and Newport, Rhode Island. Slavery was integral to the building of New York City and places like Newport and Providence. Many of these cities had upwards of 20 percent of their populations enslaved.

Slavery continued in the North slightly longer than in the South. New Jersey was the last state to end slavery, on January 23, 1866. That's right, a northern state was the last American state to end slavery, not in the south! Some northern states never officially ended slavery, but rather, the slavery in those states became illegal only because of the 13th amendment to the US Constitution in 1865. In fact, the northern states of Delaware and New Jersey initially refused to ratify the 13th Amendment to abolish slavery after the war. Delaware did not ratify until 1901 and both these northern states held slaves throughout the war as well as several other states under Union control. New Jersey changed the name for slaves to "life time apprentices” in order to continue slavery.
Illegal slave ships in New York City continued to transport slaves in 1860 and perhaps later.

The main reason for the majority of slaves and slave owners continuing longer in the southern states, is that the south's economy depended on agriculture, farming, and cotton which depended upon manual labor. Whereas the northern states' economy was focused on steel, metal, machines, and other industrial manufacturing. However, most slavery in the south ended well before the civil war, as religious groups convinced the majority of white people that it was wrong.

Section 4: Slavery in History and Today

Unknown to most people, black people are not the only race of people who have been slaves. There has been, and still are, many white slaves today. And there have been many white slaves throughout history including the slavery of the white Anglo-Saxon Israelites in Egypt, Assyria and Babylon. Consider also the Jewish Holocaust. And also the fact that the white Irish were the originally the majority of slaves first brought to the new world (America).

In Prisons & Slavery, John Dewar Gleissner writes: "The Arabs' treatment of black Africans can aptly be termed an African Holocaust. Arabs killed more Africans in transit, especially when crossing the Sahara Desert, than Europeans and Americans, and over more centuries, both before and after the years of the Atlantic slave trade. Arab Muslims began extracting millions of black African slaves centuries before Christian nations did. Arab slave traders removed slaves from Africa for about 13 centuries, compared to three centuries of the Atlantic slave trade. African slaves transported by Arabs across the Sahara Desert died more often than slaves making the Middle Passage to the New World by ship. Slaves invariably died within five years if they worked in the Ottoman Empire's Sahara salt mines."

In the book called The Thomas Sowell Reader, Thomas Sowell, an intelligent and highly respected black man, writes this:
"Of all the tragic facts about the history of slavery, the most astonishing to an American today is that, although slavery was a worldwide institution for thousands of years, nowhere in the world was slavery a controversial issue prior to the 18th century."
"Everyone hated the idea of being a slave but few had any qualms about enslaving others. Slavery was just not an issue, not even among intellectuals, much less among political leaders, until the 18th century - and then it was an issue only in Western civilization. Among those who turned against slavery in the 18th century were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other American leaders. You could research all of the 18th century Africa or Asia or the Middle East without finding any comparable rejection of slavery there. But who is singled out for scathing criticism today? American leaders of the 18th century."
"People of every race and color were enslaved - and enslaved others. White people were still being bought and sold as slaves in the Ottoman Empire, decades after American blacks were freed."

Thomas Sowell also wrote somewhere: "The region of West Africa ... was one of the great slave-trading regions of the continent - before, during, and after the white man arrived. It was the Africans who enslaved their fellow Africans, selling some of these slaves to Europeans or to Arabs and keeping others for themselves. Even at the peak of the Atlantic slave trade, Africans retained more slaves for themselves than they sent to the Western Hemisphere. ... Arabs were the leading slave raiders in East Africa, ranging over an area larger than all of Europe."

Harvard's Department of African and African American Studies professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., who is a black man, wrote: "Between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 million survived the dreaded Middle Passage, disembarking in North America, the Caribbean and South America. And how many of these 10.7 million Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That's right: a tiny percentage. In fact, the overwhelming percentage of the African slaves were shipped directly to the Caribbean and South America; Brazil received 4.86 million Africans alone!"

Today: According to that National Geographic article titled "21st Century Slaves":
There are an estimated 27 million men, women, and children in the world who are enslaved - physically confined or restrained and forced to work, or controlled through violence, or in some way treated as property.
Therefore, there are more slaves today than were seized from Africa in four centuries of the trans-Atlantic slave trade [11 million total, and about 450,000, or about 4% of the total, who were brought to the United States]. The modern commerce in humans rivals illegal drug trafficking in its global reach—and in the destruction of lives.

Other races, Blacks, Arabs, Chinese... owned slaves too. Below is a video presentation where Candace Owens (a famous black conservative leader) explains how slavery is not exclusive to white people being masters nor to black people being slaves, and did not originate with the Europeans, and even how the meaning of the word "slave" refers to the Slavs (white people) enslaved by Muslims. Notice also how that she explains that slavery did not originate with white people or Americans or Europeans. In fact, white people were the first to outlaw slavery! And that there are more slaves today inside Africa than in the United States during the time of the American Civil War! Watch the video for more information:
https://www.prageru.com/video/a-short-history-of-slavery

Black slave owners: The historical, but hidden fact is that during the American Civil War, there were black men who owned slaves in America. And black people in Africa sold other black people as slaves to the Europeans and Americans. And there are many black and Arab people in Africa today that own slaves, still yet in modern times. Yet the communist Democrat party never speaks against the slavery that is ongoing today.

In the book, "Black Slaveowners" by Larry Koger, 1985, there is a chart that shows that in 1860, there were 171 black people in South Carolina that owned slaves! The source of the information is the official U.S. Census. That doesn't count other states.

In 1830, "3,776 free Negroes owned 12,907 slaves" in the entire United States. I don't know if that number went up or went down by 1860, because much information has been hidden because they don't want you to know the truth.

Section 5: Black Confederates

It has been estimated that over 65,000 black people participated in the Civil War on the side of the confederacy. As of Feb. 1865, 1,150 black men served in the Confederate Navy. Free black soldiers of the confederacy received the same pay and the same equipment as white soldiers. But that wasn't the situation in the Union Army, which paid black soldiers less than white ones.

There were even black officers of the confederate military. One such example is James Washington, Co. D 34th Texas Cavalry, “Terrell’s Texas Cavalry”.

The “Richmond Howitzers” were partially manned by black militiamen. They saw action at 1st Manassas (or 1st Battle of Bull Run) where they operated battery no. 2. In addition two black “regiments” in this battle, one free regiment and one slave regiment, participated in the battle on behalf of the South.

83% of Richmond’s male slave population volunteered for duty with the confederate army. A special ball was held in Richmond to raise money for uniforms for these men.

Confederate General John B. Gordon (Army of Northern Virginia) reported that all of his troops were in favor of Colored troops and that its adoption would have “greatly encouraged the army”. Gen. Lee was anxious to receive regiments of black soldiers. The Richmond Sentinel reported on 24 Mar 1864, “None…will deny that our servants are more worthy of respect than the motley hordes, which come against us.” “Bad faith [to black Confederates] must be avoided as an indelible dishonor.”

On April 4, 1865, a Confederate supply train was exclusively manned and guarded by black Infantry in Amelia County, Virginia.

The Jackson Battalion included two companies of black soldiers. They saw combat at Petersburg under Col. Shipp who said: “My men acted with utmost promptness and goodwill...Allow me to state sir that they behaved in an extraordinary acceptable manner.”
Many black people helped to defend the city of Petersburg, Virginia on behalf of the confederacy.

Former slave, Horace King, accumulated great wealth as a contractor to the Confederate Navy. He was also an expert engineer and became known as the “Bridge builder of the Confederacy.” One of his bridges was burned in a northern raid. His home was pillaged by Union troops.

There are actually many other examples. See more in these 2 recommended links:

And we should also consider that there are black members of confederate groups/organizations around the United States today.

Section 6: High Taxes and Regulations, Big Government

Liberal historians like David Donald and James McPherson praise Lincoln's "social legislation" because to them it appears to be a precursor to Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous "New Deal", and indeed it was. In fact, the phrase "New Deal" was not coined by Roosevelt but by a Raleigh, North Carolina newspaper in 1865 when describing Lincoln's social legislation. The newspaper urged North Carolina to rejoin the Union and enjoy the government handouts that had been created by what economists Mark Thornton and Robert Ekelund call "the flurry of new laws, regulations, and bureaucracies created by President Lincoln and the Republican Party." These included the Homestead Act, Morrill Land-Grant College Act, Department of Agriculture, transcontinental railroad land grants, tax-subsidized mail delivery, subsidized railway mail service, and other programs, all financed by myriad excise taxes, ten tariff (tax) increases, and the printing of greenbacks.

When Abraham Lincoln first entered Illinois politics in 1832, he announced: "My politics are short and sweet, like the old woman's dance. I am in favor of a national bank,... in favor of the internal improvements system and a high protective tariff."

Lincoln openly stumped for senatorial passage of the Morrill Tariff. In a February 19, 1861 speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he told his audience that no other issue (none) was more important to their congressional representatives than raising tariffs. President James Buchanan of Pennsylvania would sign the Morrill Tariff into law on March 2, 1861, two days before Lincoln's inauguration.
The Morrill Tariff increased federal taxes on the south from 20-26% to 40%. These taxes also represented an unfair transfer of wealth from the cotton farming South to the industrial North.

The Republican Party was originally the party of big federal government in America. It was the Democratic Party that was the party of Jefferson and of limited government until the 1912 election, after which the party veered dramatically to the left.

From the perspective of the Republican Party, Lincoln was elected for four reasons:
1. To preserve the territories for the white race and to ensure that white laborers would not have to compete for jobs with either slaves or free blacks; (Both Democrats and Republicans considered America to be a white nation in comparison to African nations which were/are black nations.)
2. To sign into law high protectionist tariffs/taxes that would benefit Northern manufacturers (while harming consumers, and especially those in the South);
3. To give away free land under the Homestead Act, the biggest political patronage program ever;
4. To use taxpayer dollars to subsidize railroad corporations, the important financial backbone of the Republican Party.

Economists Robert A. McGuire and T. Norman Van Cott surely understated their case in the peer-review economics journal "Economic Inquiry" in 2002, when they concluded after analyzing the role of tariffs in precipitating the War between the States that "the tariff issue may in fact have been even more important in the North-South tensions that led to the Civil War than many economists and historians currently believe."
"The Confederate Constitution, Tariffs, and the Laffer Relationship," Economic Inquiry 40, no 3 (July 2002), p. 43

Lincoln exploded the US debt from $65 million in 1860 to $2.7 billion in 1865. That's the largest relative increase in U.S. federal debt ever! Taxes were used to support northern industries, banks and railroads and manufacturing. The banks and railroads were extremely corrupted and literally had people murdered in order to steal their land, to build the new railroads.

The first federal income taxes were instituted under Lincoln in order to fund the Civil War. These were a progressive income tax, which is a stated plank of the Communist agenda.

Confederate Major General Patrick R Cleburne (March 17, 1828 - Nov. 30, 1864) said: "Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late... It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision... It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties."

The following statement comes from Confederate Naval officer Raphael Semmes to Captain Hillyar of the British Navy in 1861:
“The North used the machinery of government, in which they had majority power, to enrich the North and despoil the South. They imposed the tariff which reduced the South to a dependent colonial condition like the Roman provinces. The only difference being that the North falsely claimed to be operating under law. Slavery had nothing to do with the war, the hypocritical Yankees care nothing of the Negroes. The slavery issue is only a by-play, a device to cover Northern grasp for empire—power. The North only began the slavery agitation when the began to rob the South by raising the tariff. The slavery issue was only a diversion, it was no more than an implement used by a robber to rob the South Finally, realizing the North would never treat us fairly, the South withdrew from the Union. We merely want to be independent. We are fighting for our independence because the North does not want to lose their milk cow and has attacked us, to forcibly hold us to pay their bills.”

The following quotes are from the book: "Soldier's Recollection: Leaves from the Diary of a Young Confederate" by Randolph H. McKim, pages 21-22, published 1910. It helps us to understand the knowledge that people had at the time.
“But I am chiefly concerned to show that my comrades and brothers, of whom I write in these pages, did not draw their swords in defense of the institution of slavery. They were not thinking of their slaves when they cast all in the balance— their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor — and went forth to endure the hardships of the camp and the march and the perils of the battle field. They did not suffer, they did not fight, they did not die, for the privilege of holding their fellow men in bondage! No, it was for the sacred right of self-government that they fought. It was in defense of their homes and their firesides. It was to repel the invader, to resist a war of subjugation. It was in vindication of the principle enunciated in the Declaration of Independence that "governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed."
...“Only a very small minority of the men who fought in the Southern armies — not one in ten —were financially interested in the institution of slavery. We cared little or nothing about it. To establish our independence we would at any time have gladly surrendered it. If any three men may be supposed to have known the object for which the war was waged, they were these: Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, and Robert E. Lee. Their decision agrees with what I have stated."
...“Mr. Lincoln consistently held and declared that the object of the war was the restoration of the Union, not the emancipation of the slaves. Mr. Davis as positively declared that the South was fighting for independence, not for slavery. And Robert E. Lee expressed his opinion by setting all his slaves free Jan. 8, 1863, and then going on with the war for more than two years longer. In February, 1861, Mr. Davis wrote to his wife in these words, "In any case our slave property will eventually be lost." Thus the political head of the Confederacy entered on the war foreseeing the eventual loss of his slaves, and the military head of the Confederacy actually set his slaves free before the war was half over. Yet both, they say, were fighting for slavery!”

Section 7: The Real Reason for the US Civil War: Socialist/Communist Conquest

Karl Marx, the satanic, antichrist, antisemitic wretch responsible for promoting socialism and spurring murderous revolutions across the entire earth, was born in 1818 and was quite active leading up to the Civil War. We commonly think of Soviet Russia (i.e. the Soviet Union), 1917, being the first major socialist revolution. But there were multiple communist revolutions even before that.
Shortly after the Communist Manifesto was published in 1848, the famous "Revolutions of 1848" occurred, also called the Springtime of the Peoples or Springtime of Nations, where socialists revolted in over 50 European nations: Italy, France, the German States, Denmark, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Romania, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Austria, Prussia... The goal of which, in every case, was to overthrow the monarchy, or else to consolidate multiple states into one federal socialist government over all.
Many of these revolutions failed, and the surviving socialist revolutionaries fled for other regions, especially to England, Switzerland, and the United States.

Abraham Lincoln warmly welcomed the support of Karl Marx during the Civil War and corresponded with him freely. Likewise, Marx spoke well of Lincoln and the Union and hated the South and their leaders. (Even Lincoln's term "the Union" hints at similarities between Lincoln's Northern Union and Marx's future Soviet Union.)
That the evil, demonic Marx would speak well of Lincoln and also the other way around, agrees with how Lincoln's character is truly evil and demonic.

Now this exodus of socialists into the United States in 1848 had a significant influence on future events. How significant was it? From 1852 to 1861, Karl Marx was a guest author for the Republican newspaper the New York Daily Tribune, thoroughly on the side of the Union. Marx's position is now the common lie taught in school. Socialist Charles A. Dana is responsible for letting Marx into that, and socialist Horace Greeley had hired Dana as his aide. Dana was appointed as a Special Investigating Agent in 1862 by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, and Lincoln called socialist Dana "the eyes of his administration". Later, antichrist socialist Martin Luther King, Jr. praised Lincoln for his association with Karl Marx. It is not a secret to socialists whose side Lincoln was on. Even the Washington Post admits this connection.

Vladimir Lenin echoed Marx and his support for the Union cause. In the 1930's there were numerous Lincoln-Lenin parades held in New York City. The Communist Party, both in America and abroad, has always held Lincoln in high regard.
(Foster, History of the Communist Party of the United States of America, Chapter 3, Marxists in the Struggle Against Slavery)

Besides this, the socialists were thoroughly on the side of the Federalists against the States, and there were many European socialist soldiers and generals in the Union Army. The South stood for states' rights and the rights of local people to have a local government. The socialists, in contrast, wanted one government, theirs to conquer the entire world. And they did the exact same things in the Civil War that they did in Socialist Russia, in National Socialist Germany, in Socialist China, and in every socialist revolution besides. The press was conquered, silenced, and made to conform. Judges were corrupted or replaced. And dissenters were thrown into concentration camps and harassed or tortured. Something similar happened in America during the Civil War, under the Lincoln administration.
Why do you think that all you've ever heard about Lincoln for most of your life is glowing praise? Because he silenced the opposition, and the descendants of his supporters and the indoctrinated conquered are the most populous survivors. They rewrote history to their liking and to his.

Inspired by Lenin’s bolshevik revolution in Russia at the end of the first World War, the Communist Party of the United States was formed in Chicago in 1919. Lincoln was certainly not forgotten though, and the new party soon began holding Lincoln-Lenin rallies every February. At a 1939 communist rally in Chicago to mark the party’s twentieth anniversary, a giant image of Lincoln was displayed that dwarfed the smaller pictures of Lenin and Stalin.

Furthermore, when the Third Communist International in Moscow raised troops worldwide in 1936 to fight for the socialist government in Spain, one three-thousand man unit from the United States was named the “Abraham Lincoln Brigade.” Source: https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/lincoln-and-marx/

Lincoln's Chosen Leaders

Major-General Cassius Marcellus Clay (October 19, 1810 - July 22, 1903) served as the United States ambassador to Russia from 1863 to 1869. He was influential in the negotiations for the purchase of Alaska. Mr. Clay, who was a Republican, is credited with influencing Russian support for the Union during the American Civil War. During the Civil War, Russia came to the aid of the Union, threatening war against Britain and France if they officially recognized the Confederacy. Tsar Alexander II of Russia gave sealed orders to the commanders of both his Atlantic and Pacific fleets, and sent those Russian military ships to the east and west coasts of America. They were instructed that the sealed orders were to be opened only if Britain and France entered the war on the side of the Confederacy.

August Willich (November 19, 1810 - January 22, 1878), born Johann August Ernst von Willich, was a military officer in the Prussian Army and a leading early proponent of communism in Germany. In 1847 he discarded his title of nobility.
He was the leader of the left/liberal faction of the Communist League in Germany. He took an active part in the Revolutions (in Germany) in 1848-1849.
He later emigrated to the United States and became a Republican and also a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War.
Karl Marx wrote in his concluding note to the Revelations Concerning the Communist Trial in Cologne: "In the Civil War in North America, Willich showed that he is more than a visionary".

Alexander Schimmelfennig (July 20, 1824 – September 5, 1865) was a German soldier and political revolutionary; then he became a Union Army general in the American Civil War.
While in London, Schimmelfenning became a part of the German democratic movement, a sectarian group within the Communist League.

Video: More Deadly Than War: The Communist Revolution in America (1958). An excellent presentation explaining the methods by which communists divide, control, and manipulate host populations against each other, down to man against man, until they, the parasites and little ants from outside, can take over.
The modern South African ANC government, which is funded and supported by Russia, is an excellent example of how the wicked Communists support black people to cause racial division. They don't actually care for freedom of the blacks, and would quickly re-enslave them once the "liberal" blacks are finished working as mere tools of the communist revolution.
A similar racial division occurred during the Civil War, too.

Section 8: The States' Right to Secede

The United States was formed by a revolutionary war and a secession from the British Empire. The founding fathers recognized a right to revolt and secede from a tyrannical government from the start of America's independence from Britain.
The United States was a voluntary union/confederation of colony states with independent governments. The federal government was to be subservient to the states, its main purpose being to handle and organize international issues of defense, war, and trade. Not to lord over the state-level governments and combine them all into one empire, as it has done since Lincoln.

From the Declaration of Independence:
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript

Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The US Constitution, not forbidding secession or putting a restraint on it subject to the approval of the federal government, must necessarily leave this right to the States.

Long before he ran for president, Lincoln himself had twice affirmed the right of secession and even armed revolution. His scruples changed when he came to power. Only a few weeks after taking office, he wrote an order for the arrest of Chief Justice Roger Taney, who had attacked his unconstitutional suspension of habeas corpus.
https://theimaginativeconservative.org/2012/12/the-right-to-secede.html

Here are two such examples of Lincoln supporting secession:

1) In a speech in January 1848 on the Mexican War, Abraham Lincoln said, “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, —a most sacred right —a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world– Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government, may choose to exercise it– Any portion of such people, that can, may revolutionize, and make their own, of so much of the territory as they inhabit– More than this, a majority of any portion of such people, may revolutionize, putting down a minority, intermingled with, or near about them, who may oppose their movement– Such minority, was precisely the case, of the tories of our own revolution– It is a quality of revolutions, not to go by old lines, or old laws; but to break up both, and make new ones." https://papersofabrahamlincoln.org/documents/D200444

2) From Lincoln's first inaugural address: This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. https://www.nps.gov/liho/learn/historyculture/firstinaugural.htm

(Of course, Lincoln was for revolution/secession only when it was on his side, then once he was in power he was immediately against it! That's the same position the communists have.)

In his first inaugural address Abraham Lincoln made the absurd assertion that the Union preceded the states, and, therefore, state sovereignty did not exist; this contradicts the US constitution.
For quotes such as this, Lincoln then became a favorite of Hitler and Communist tyrants. Adolf Hitler invoked Lincoln's first inaugural address to make his own case against state sovereignty in Germany. Then in 2017, a senior Chinese official said (in different words) that Lincoln would had approved of the Chinese conquest of Tibet.
Lincoln's "preserve the Union" was a perfect motto and logic for dictators.

The Union perspective matched the Fascist/Communist Union perspective, that all must submit totally to a central authority. Whereas in the Constitutional State/Confederacy perspective, each sub-region is subject to its own government down from the states to the counties to the towns to the households; and the purpose of the Federal government is in matters of national treachery and of international dealings including war.

Lincoln's Union conquered border states and made even Northern states to concede to his will. It was a wholly centralized government resembling a dictatorship, with Lincoln as its tyrant.

Section 9: The Demonic Railroads and Banks

Lincoln may have started out poor, but that was not the person who entered the Presidency. Lincoln was not a frequent splitter of rails nor wood, and Lincoln was not poor. No, Lincoln was a lawyer. And not just any lawyer. He was a top lawyer for the top railroad corporations. Lincoln was filthy rich, just like them. And he got filthy rich by helping these railroad industrialists to conquer the nation. The railroads were a military operation, and military men worked at these railroad companies, and, like George B. McClellan, became Union Army generals.

As said previously in this publication, the banks and railroad officials robbed Americans of their rightful property and even murdered people. Many politicians and law officers were bribed and paid to ignore the crimes of the bank and railroad gangsters. This is a major part of the Civil War that has been ignored by modern historians.
People like Jesse James are painted to be like criminals and murderers when in fact Jesse James was a hero who fought for the Confederate army to help defend the poor and weak from the demonic Union government and their big corporative gangsters. The north was determined to force their demonic industries upon the agricultural south even if it meant invading and destroying the south, one farm at a time. The trains were equivalent to the tanks in Tiananmen Square in China in 1989.

Author J.G. Drennan noted that "Mr. Lincoln was continuously one of the attorneys for the Illinois Central Railroad Company from its organization [in 1849] until he was elected president." He was called upon by the company's general counsel to litigate dozens of cases and was such a corporate insider that he traveled throughout the Midwest in a private rail car with a free pass and was often accompanied by an entourage of Illinois Central executives. This was the real Lincoln, the opposite of the media image of a poor, humble, backwoods "railsplitter" that has been presented to generations of American schoolchildren.
For an example of how he made his gross wealth, there was a case Lincoln where had successfully defended the Illinois Central against McLean County, Illinois, which wanted to tax the corporation's property. After winning the case he sent the company a bill for $5,000, an incredible sum for a single case in the 1850s. The man who Lincoln presented his bill to was George B. McClellan, the vice president of the Illinois Central who later became the commanding general of the Army of the Potomac (until Lincoln fired him) and, in 1864, Lincoln's opponent in the presidential election.
... Lincoln then sued the Illinois Central for his fee. When he appeared in court, however, armed with depositions from other Illinois lawyers that such a fee seemed perfectly appropriate to them, no lawyers for the company showed up. Lincoln was awarded his exorbitant fee by default.

Another example of Lincoln's manipulative political behavior for the goal of seizing and inflating the currency:
By the late 1850s it was widely known that "Lincoln's close relationships with powerful industrial interests" were "always potent and present in political counsels." In today's language, Lincoln was the equivalent of a rich and powerful "K Street lobbyist." In a great understatement, Starr remarked that "Lincoln's rise [in politics] was coincident with that of the railroads."
... Indeed, in addition to representing the Illinois Central, Lincoln also represented the Chicago and Alton, Ohio and Mississippi, and Rock Island railroads. As soon as the Chicago and Mississippi Railroad was built, he was appointed the local attorney for that corporation. By 1860, he was probably the most sought-after attorney in the entire industry.

In December 5 of 1840, the Illinois Democrats voted to require banks to make payments in gold and silver instead of paper money. The Whigs conspired to prevent the measure from passing by not showing up at the vote. Only Lincoln and a few Whigs showed up to observe. When the vote was about to be taken, Lincoln and his remaining Whig comrades ran for the door of the legislature building, a Methodist Church. When they found it locked, they jumped out the church window, earning themselves the name "Leaping Lincoln and his flying brethren".

Charles Cruft (January 12, 1826 - March 23, 1883) was a railroad executive, and served as a Union general.

Samuel Ryan Curtis, Colonel in the Civil War. In late 1865, he returned to Iowa where he was involved with the Union Pacific Railroad until his death the following year.

George B. McClellan was a civil engineer, railroad executive, Union general, and politician who served as the 24th governor of New Jersey.

Ambrose Everett Burnside (May 23, 1824 - September 13, 1881) was treasurer of the Illinois Central Railroad, where he worked for and became friendly with George B. McClellan, who later became one of his commanding officers in the Civil War. Burnside was employed in numerous railroad and industrial directorships, including the presidencies of the Cincinnati and Martinsville Railroad, the Indianapolis and Vincennes Railroad, the Cairo and Vincennes Railroad, and the Rhode Island Locomotive Works.
Burnside became a senior Union general in the Civil War.

Nathaniel Prentice (or Prentiss) Banks (January 30, 1816 - September 1, 1894) was an American politician from Massachusetts and a Union general during the Civil War. During the summer of 1860, Banks accepted an offer to become a resident director of the Illinois Central Railroad. He moved to Chicago after leaving office, and was engaged primarily in the promotion and sale of the railroad's extensive lands.

Mason Brayman (May 23, 1813 - February 27, 1895) A colonel in the Civil War. He oversaw the American Baptist Publishing Society, was active in the temperance movement, and was a leader of the local Baptist church.
In the 1850s, Brayman had joined the staff of the Illinois Central Railroad, working to gain rights of way for the expanding railroad. In 1855, he sold his position with the Illinois Central and took a position with the Cairo and Fulton Railroad.

Edward Dickinson Baker, U.S. Army colonel during both the Mexicana-American War and the American Civil War. In July 1850, he proposed to the Panama Railroad Company that he recruit men to help build the railroad. Baker agreed to pay their expenses from St. Louis and in Panama, and the company would send them on to San Francisco.

Many of the Union soldiers and leaders were already rich or became rich after the war: lawyers, bankers, railroad executives... the North was rich, but the South had to fight this international industrial empire with whoever was there and with whatever they had.
In comparison, righteous Southern rebels such as Jesse James and Billy the Kid were fighting against railroad companies and other industrialists who had robbed land from civilians. Then when the Civil War began, these rebel heroes continued to fight Union soldiers working for the same rich industrialists.

Section 10: Antisemitism

On December 17, 1862, Union Major-General Ulysses S. Grant issued "General Order No. 11 (1862)". It ordered the expulsion of all Jews in his military district, comprising areas of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. It gave the Jews only 24 hours to leave.
Lincoln had prohibited the sale and trade of cotton without special license. This was part of an effort to kill the south. There was a market for fake licenses. Grant blamed the Jews for it, but most illegal cotton traders and fake license dealers were not Jews.
Abraham Lincoln canceled the order around 17 days later. Regardless of the nullifying of the order, it's extremely clear that Lincoln's top general was an antisemite. And Grant's antisemitism didn't begin with November 1862.
In August 1862, as Grant was preparing the Union Army to take Vicksburg, he commanded his men to examine the baggage of all speculators, giving “special attention” to Jews. In November, he told his subordinates to refuse to let Jews receive permits to travel south of Jackson, Mississippi or travel southward on the railroad.

Jews in Union-occupied areas, such as New Orleans and Memphis, were singled out by Union forces for abuse. In New Orleans, the ruling general, Benjamin "Beast" Butler, harshly vilified Jews, and was quoted by a Jewish newspaper as saying that he could "suck the blood of every Jew, and …will detain every Jew as long as he can." An Associated Press reporter from the North wrote that "The Jews in New Orleans and all the South ought to be exterminated. ..They run the blockade, and are always to be found at the bottom of every new villainy."
The New York Times ridiculed the anti-war Democratic Party for having a chairman who was "the agent of foreign jew bankers."
A leading abolitionist minister, Theodore Parker, called Jews "lecherous," and said that their intellects were "sadly pinched in those narrow foreheads" and that they "did sometimes kill a Christian baby at the Passover."
Meanwhile, in the South, Southern Jews were playing a prominent role in the Confederate government and armed forces, and "were used to being treated as equals."
Source: "The Jewish Confederates" by Robert Rosen, 2001.

Max Glass was a Jewish immigrant who enlisted in the Eighth Connecticut Infantry. He described being greatly persecuted and discriminated against by the northern yankees, even within the military. He was even stoned in the streets. The Union officials had no mercy upon him to help him in any way. Mr. Glass wasn't alone in his experiences. The following article shares more information. https://www.jpost.com/diaspora/antisemitism/article-722161

Section 11: Barbarism and Tyranny

Lincoln's war included the destruction of entire towns populated solely by civilians, massive looting, rape and execution without trial.
The chief example of this is General William Tecumseh Sherman's March to the Sea, in November-December of 1864. Civilians were looted and pillaged, homes occupied, and resources burned.

There was no decency in this conduct of war. It resembles more the conditions of a Communist war, which requires no less than total central government domination for the Communists, no matter what barbaric or evil behavior is required; as per the communist motto "the ends justify the means". Communists, Muslims, Nazis, and Lincoln's Union all behaved similarly in this disregard of God's standards. They think that they may do absolutely anything as long as it defeats their enemy.

John Brown (Abolitionist): Committed the raid on Harpers Ferry.
Moreover, Brown was inspired by Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau practiced Hinduism, and this spirit of Hinduism pervaded the Transcendalist movement which he was a part of, along with other famous figures like Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Leading abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison called the Constitution “a covenant with death and an agreement with Hell,” and went so far as to burn a copy at a Massachusetts rally in 1854.
Many other abolitionists had called for similar violence, to free the slaves by any means necessary. That this level of rebellion and mutiny for the cause of abolition was in part celebrated and on the whole tolerated in the North, reflects badly on their cause.

Overall, Lincoln's war was a total war fought even against women and children, through such methods. Moreover, Northern casualties were huge among the Union military, which sent men hastily marching to their deaths, knowing that it would eventually win by sheer numbers and force of industry if only the war just kept going.
The South, on the other hand, fought a defensive war on home territory. Attempts to invade the North were quickly stopped. The Southern generals fought the Union not to pillage nor enslave nor kill off the North, but to defend their lives and their homes.
Lincoln supported slaughter and sacrifice even on the Union side by such poor management. It is truly an example of how "divide and conquer" works.

The mainstream narrative goes that the South attacked Fort Sumter first, and that slavery had to be stopped at all costs. Yet the total war on Southern men, women, children, property, free speech, and on human dignity, and on Christianity, and on devaluation of lives on both sides, suggests that a more forceful motive was at hand.

Lincoln's Tyranny

From Mildred Rutherford's A True Estimate Of Abraham Lincoln:
pages 22-24 list constitution violations
https://archive.org/details/RutherfordMildredLewisTheSouthMustHaveHerRightfulPlaceInHistory/page/n2/mode/1up

Lincoln arrested and imprisoned without trial an estimated 38,000 political prisoners, suspending habeas corpus in the process. The allegation was that these peace-loving dissenters were traitors, and not imprisoning them would endanger the Union. Of course, with the truth being that the South was fighting a defensive war for its own liberty, this act of untried arrest and imprisonment becomes a socialist act of tyranny by the Union against its own citizens.
Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney argued correctly that only Congress had this right, and not the President. Lincoln's response was to issue an arrest warrant on the Chief Justice.

Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham (Democrat, Ohio) condemned Lincoln's abuse of power. What did Lincoln do? He called Vallandigham a traitor and had him imprisoned without due process, then had the press to smear his reputation and justify the imprisonment.

In December 1862, General Ulysses Grant issued General Order No 11, specifically targeting Jews. This was protested, and now Grant and Lincoln are lauded for rescinding their own order, rather than remembered for having issued it in the first place.

In 1923, Mildred Lewis Rutherford listed ten major violations of the U.S. Constitution under Lincoln's Administration:
1. Coercion in 1861. Article IV., Sec. IV.
2. Laws of Neutrality "Trent Affair. Article VI., Clause 2" Violation of International Law.
3. Writ of Habeas Corpus Suspended. Article I., Sec. IX., Clause 2.
4. War Was Declared Without the Consent of Congress, 1861. Article I., Section VIII., Clauses 11, 12.
5. Emancipation Proclamation. Article IV., Section III., Clause 2.
6. West Virginia Made a State. Article IV., Section III., Clause 1.
7. The Freedom of Speech Denied. Vallandigham Imprisoned in Ohio. Amendments, Article I.
8. Blockading Ports of States that Were Held by the Federal Government to be still in the Union.
9. The Liberty of the Press Taken Away. Amendments, Article I.
10. Violation of the Fugitive Slave Law. Article IV., Sec. II., Clause 3.

Section 12: The Abraham Lincoln Memorial

The 1922 Lincoln Memorial is built like a Greek temple (specifically, the Parthenon, which is a temple to the female idol Athena), and features a giant, godlike statue of Lincoln sitting on a throne.
The idol is 19 feet tall (and would be 28 feet if it was standing), and weighing in at around 170 tons. It cost around $3 million in 1915-1922 dollars, which worth around $160-270 million in 2023 dollars. And they are spending $69 million more in 2023 to put a museum in the basement.
From nps.gov, confirming the idolatrous intentions of the architect: "The individual responsible for this design was architect Henry Bacon who modeled the memorial after the Greek temple known as the Parthenon. Bacon felt that a memorial to a man who defended democracy should be based on a structure found in the birthplace of democracy."

Corroborating the religious nature of the monument, the Civil Rights Movement regards this memorial as a symbolically sacred venue. Socialist antichrist Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial. (Which is ironic, because Lincoln had wanted to send all black people back to Africa [Liberia] while he was alive, and had preferred this solution to ending slavery.)

And as we continue looking inside the Lincoln Memorial, we see there are also two giant murals called Emancipation and Unity, of two winged female "angels" (which are really fallen angels) enforcing the traditional narrative outcomes of the Civil War. Feminism was an eventual rotten fruit of Lincoln's dictatorship and conquest of the South, which Lincoln himself had spoken in favor of.

Why is Lincoln sitting on a throne like a god in Greek temple in Washington? This is nothing short of worship and idolatry. Moreover, no other President has such a temple in the capital. Lincoln alone sits on the throne, like a modern-day Antiochus.

One may have contended at the start of this article, "Well, the people of today and of the 1900s idolize him and inflate him in size and make a god out of him. But surely the people of the 1860s did not lift him up to the throne as a god? And surely he was a humble, godly Christian man? And a man of peace, not a proudful man of war?"
But if you have read this article and the links that we have provided, then you have seen enormous evidence that Lincoln was an antichrist and a madman and a tyrant from the start, including who he picked for his top generals and his judges and staff, and who he censored and fired and sent to prison. Abraham Lincoln had set himself up as a false god and a wicked absolute dictator — freeing men who belonged in captivity, while making the free captive. Letting criminals who should have been killed in justice exchange crocodile tears for their crocodile lives, while making innocent men into villains and martyrs.
Lincoln's Justice was crooked and perverted, falling from straight and righteous ways. His Liberty was a tyrant with false weights, flaunting her vain strength to exchange loving sentences for cruel ones. He behaved like a narcissist and was a nemesis of all godly and righteous men, North or South.

History reveres him as a founding father. Yet he did not help found America nor preserve it in its original Confederate (states) form, but rather helped conquer it for the Soviet Union. And his reign was characterized by tyranny, satire, mockery, implicit blasphemy, subversion of authority, and a spirit of antichrist and witchcraft.

Conclusion: Erasing and Rewriting History

In recent years, we have seen how that the Democrats have rewritten history to turn criminals into heroes; and heroes into criminals. People like George Floyd, BLM, and others, have been lifted up as wonderful people who were wrongfully oppressed, when in reality, they were demonic people. And in reverse, people who are standing for righteous, family values are being painted as evil. As you can see with Abraham Lincoln, this isn't the first time in history that this has happened. And it also occurred with Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, Biden, Obama and Martin Luther King Jr.
For the truth about these men, please see the "related articles" section further down this page.

People's true motives in history may not match what they say, or what is said about them afterward. Lincoln is a ready example of this, because his original position on slavery was that blacks ought to be shipped back to Africa or else segregated away from the North society.

Lincoln also rewrote history in another way: by controlling the press. Articles from the North which are unfavorable to Lincoln are a lot less likely to be found.

What we have presented on this page, is more than sufficient to prove the point. But there's much more proof than we have time to provide. Here is a listing of other websites and books that are excellent resources.
