Our history books are full of legends and out right lies, rewriters have reduced our history to a few short lines and lessons. There are many facts which have long been lost to our people. Modern history texts leave out words like, "founding fathers" as well as entire epochs especially of American History. We are reminded of the words of a southern soldier:

Ronayne Cleburne"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."
--- Maj. General Patrick R. Cleburne, CSA, January 1864, writing on what would happen if the Confederacy were to be defeated.

Patrick Ronayne Cleburne, ( March 16, or 17th. 1828 - November 30, 1864) was an Ango-Irish soldier, best known for his service in the Confederate States Army during what has been called the American Civil War, where he rose to the rank of major general Born in County Cork, Ireland, Cleburne served in the 41st. Regiment of Foot of the British Army after failing to gain entrance into Trinity College of Medicine. He emigrated to the United States three years later. At the beginning of the Civil War, Cleburne sided with the Southern States. He progressed from being a private soldier in the local militia to a division commander. Cleburne participated in many successful military campaigns, especially the Battle of Stones River and the Battle of Ringgold Gap. His strategic ability gained him the nickname "Stonewall of the West". He was killed in 1864, in the Battle of Franklin.

No era of our history has been more distorted and re-written than what is called the "Civil War".

Here we present a few of the facts you will not find in your history books. With a little research you can verify these facts, I challenge every reader to refute them. They are a compilation from many sources too numerous to mention if a contributor or contributors are not listed we apologize. This material is presented for educational purposes ONLY, the Ku Klux Klan, LLC. has never and does not advocate slavery, these are historical facts not, propaganda.

"Civil War"

Congressional Record of March 2, 1928, reports Senate Joint Resolution No. 41 wherein Congress recognized the title War Between The States as proper: A War was waged from 1861 to 1865 between two organized governments: the United States of America and the Confederate States of America. These were the official titles of the contending parties. It was not a Civil War as it was not fought between two parties within the same government.

The United States flag flew over a slave nation from 1776 until December, 1865, some eight months after the Confederacy and slavery in the South had ceased to exist. During the four years of the War and afterwards the states of Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, West Virginia, and Delaware were Union slaveholding states and slavery was legal under Federal law. In 1863, after the "Emancipation Proclamation," Free Men of Color were arrested, fined, and sold into slavery in Illinois for the "high misdemeanor" of staying in the state longer than ten days. Union General U.S. Grant expelled all Jews from his Army in December, 1862, and expelled Jewish citizens "as a class" from their homes "within 24 hours" - he freed his slaves only when compelled to do so by the 13th Amendment.

The Constitution of the Confederate States of America specifically invoked "Almighty God"—unlike the U.S. Constitution. Further, the Confederate Constitution prohibited the foreign slave trade.

No slaves were brought to our shores by any ship flying the Confederate flag.

Slavery

Black slavery was first begin in Jamestown, VA. but not as you might imagine...

The 1st 20 African slaves were brought to the US, to the colony of Virginia in 1619, by a Dutch ship.

Indentured "servants" of every race and nationality were common in the colonies, many if not most were white. Indentures sold their labors to pay the debt of their passage to the New World. At the close of their contract they were often paid a wage and freed to start their new life.

One Anthony Johnson was, a successful planter, was both ambitious and wealthy. He farmed 250 acres of prime land while many others were barely existing.

He was both highly respected and intelligent, records show he never lost a case in any court. Anthony Johnson was a black man probably of Angolan descent, and you will not hear his exploits lauded during black history month.

By 1619 blacks were a common commodity traded by Dutch merchantmen for food and supplies.

In 1653 Anthony Johnson decided to sue in a court of law to prove he owned an African a slave named Castor.

On March 8, 1655 the courts ruled in his favor deciding the slave John Castor was indeed the property of Anthony Johnson. This was the first time on this continent a court had ruled it was legal for one human being to own another.

 

In the state of LA in 1860 there were at least six Negroes in Louisiana who owned 65 or more slaves, widow C. Richard and her son P. C. Richard's owned 152 slaves. Antoine Dubuclet, owned over 100 slaves.

 

 In Charleston, SC 125 free negroes owned slaves. Six of them owned ten or more. In fact if anyone will take the time to check they will find that the blacks owned as many slaves if not more than the whites.

 

 In New Orleans. Justus Angel, & Mistress L. Horry, of Colleton, SC, District owned 84 slaves in 1830.

 

The facts are in 1830 one fourth of the free Negroes slave masters in SC owned 10 or more slaves.

It is estimated that only about six percent of Southerners at the outbreak of the war owned any slaves at all, and an even smaller number were wealthy enough to afford the hundreds of laborers which are often associated with Southern agrarianism.

Acccording to a census of 1860 only one slaveholder in all the U.S. had more than 1000 slaves, fourteen had 500-999 and two had more than 500.

William Ellison, was wealthy planter, he the third largest slave holder in South Carolina. A staunch supporter of the Confederacy one of his sons fought for the Confederacy in an artillery unit. William Ellison, a former Negro slave, owned more than sixty Negro slaves putting him the top 5% of slaveholders in all of South Carolina.

 

Gen. Robert E. Lee freed his slaves prior to the War.

 

Gen. U.S. Grant did not free his slaves until 8 months after the Armistice.

The Great Emancipator

Lincoln did not believe that whites and blacks could live together in peace. He had planned to relocate the entire black population of the United States to Central America.

"Negro equality. Fudge! How long in the government of a God great enough to make and maintain this universe, shall there continue knaves to vend and fools to gulp. so low a piece of demagoguism as this?"- Abraham Lincoln Sept. 1859

"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 2 races living together on terms of social or political equality. And inasmuch 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. I say upon this occasion that I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position that the Negro should be denied everything. " - A. Lincoln

In his reply to Stephen Douglas on 18 September 1858, scarcely five years before he issued his celebrated Emancipation Proclamation and altered the course of the war to an attack on Southern slavery as a calculated "war measure" to cripple the "enemy," Lincoln stated:" I will say... that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about, in any way, a 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."

The CSA recognized

The CSA, (Confederate States of America) a legally formed government, was in fact recognized by the Vatican. Jefferson Davis received correspondence from Pope Pious IX, the longest serving Pope in Catholic history (1846 - 1878). The Pope addressed his letters to Davis as: "His Excellency, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America", this is official recognition of the Confederacy by the world leader of the Catholic faith.

At wars end Davis was imprisoned at Fort Monroe, when he received a Christmas gift from Pope Pious IX, an autographed picture of the Pope and a crown of thorns woven by the Pontiff himself. On the picture inscribed in Latin the words: "Come unto me all ye that labor and are cast down, and I will refresh you." This treasured gift can be found on display at the Confederate Memorial Museum in New Orleans.

More, "lost history"...

Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn't added until 5 years later.

 

"With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor." It was no idle boast for some of those who signed the Declaration of Independence. Nine died of wounds or hardships during the war. Five were captured and imprisoned, in each case with brutal treatment. Several lost wives, sons or entire families, One lost his 13 children. Two wives were brutally treated. All were at one time or another the victims of manhunts and driven from their homes. Twelve signers had their homes completely burned. Seventeen lost everything they owned.

 

The expression "damned yankees" was not originally a term Southerners used toward Northerners. It actually first arose during the Revolutionary War and was used against northern "provincials" by "Yorkers" who belonged to General Schuyler's Northern army.

 

The term "dixie" was first used by a New Orleans bank that issued bilingual French-American $10 bills ("dix" is the French word for "10"). It wasn't until Daniel Decatur Emmett's 1859 song "Dixie" that it is was applied to mean the south.

What Presidents said, (about race)

Andrew Johnson

"This is a country for white men and by God as long as I am President, it shall be a government for white men."

James Garfield

"I have a strong feeling of repugnance when I think of the Negro being made our political equal and I would be glad if they could be colonized, sent to heaven or got rid of in a decent way."

Theodore Roosevelt

"Blacks are a perfectly stupid race." In 1901 he wrote, "I have not been able to think out any solution to the terrible problem offered by the presence of the Negro on this continent. He is here and can neither be killed nor driven away." As far as Native American/Indians were concerned he once said, "I don’t go so far as to think that any good Indian s are dead Indians but I believe nine out o ten are, and I shouldn’t inquire too closely into the health of the tenth."

William Howard Taft

"Your race is adapted to be a race of farmers, first, last and for all times," he told a group of Black college students.

Warren Harding (The Well-Known Black President)

"Men of both races may well stand uncompromisingly against any suggestion of social equality. This is not a question of social equality, but a question of recognizing a fundamental, eternal, inescapable difference. Racial amalgamation there cannot be.

Harry Truman

"I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, yellow men in Asia and white men in Europe and America." In a letter to his daughter Truman described the White House waiters as "an army of coons."

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The fact that Blacks were entitled to political and economic opportunity did not mean necessarily that everyone has to mingle socially or "that a Negro should court my daughter."

 

--A newly discovered diary of Harry S Truman indicates that the former president may have had a strongly negative opinion of Jews. In the diary, which includes 42 entries written in 1947, Truman recounts a conversation he had with Henry Morgenthau, the Secretary of the Treasury, who had phoned to discuss the fate of Jewish refugees. In criticizing the approach of Morgenthau, who was Jewish, Truman wrote in a July 21 passage, "The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog." The diary, found earlier this year by a researcher at the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri, was released yesterday by the National Archives. Although Truman supported recognition of Israel in 1948, he was known to use anti-Semitic language. In a letter written years before he entered the White House, Truman referred to New York City as "kike town."
