More About Lincoln's Marxists by Jr. Al Benson; Walter Donald Kennedy
 
 
 
Overview

In 1865, Karl Marx, author of the Communist Manifesto, praised Lincoln as a "single-minded son of the working class." This book examines why Marx-and other socialists-supported Mr. Lincoln's War and notes his negative influence on modern society. Firsthand accounts and insight from notable historians shatter contemporary views of both the sixteenth president and the early Republicans.

Chapters emphasize the influence of the Forty-Eighters, a group of European radical socialists who advocated big government and supported Abraham Lincoln in his effort to become America's first Republican president. The authors provide historical background by discussing the revolts that took place in 1848 and Marx's attempts to create a central government.

The book also examines Lincoln's religious views, disputing the common belief that he was a pious Christian, citing examples of his pagan beliefs from firsthand accounts. This history illustrates how radical socialists laid the groundwork for today's ever-expanding federal government and urges readers to reclaim lost liberty. Addendums include thought-provoking articles and a recommended reading list.
