“If thousands of Southerners are now comfortable in defending their heritage and culture, much of the credit must go to James and Walter Kennedy.” —Chronicles
“Dispels myths about Southern history and sets the historical record straight with well documented research.”
--Lake Charles American Press
Much of Civil War history is untrue because like most history, it is written by the victor. The story we hear is that hundreds of thousands of Southern men went to war over an issue that only affected six percent of the population. Read this book and learn the truth: there was no shining Northern force fighting a moral battle for the sake of ending slavery; there was no oppressive Southern force fighting to preserve it; and after the South declared its independence, the Union ruthlessly invaded, leaving Southerners no choice but to defend themselves.
Unfortunately, the South lost the struggle and has suffered ever since.Today, as a result of the war in which the South lost its right to be a free country, there is a continuing effort to obliterate all symbols dear to Southerners and make sure that the Southern states continue to have fewer rights under the constitution than other states.
Sure to be one of the most controversial books of the decade, The South Was Right!, filled with documented evidence supporting all the Kennedys’ claims, issues forth a frighteningly realistic picture of a captured people, their struggle to preserve their heritage, and their right to exist as an independent country and as a distinct culture.
