Praise

"A devastating critique of America’s most famous president."
—Joseph Sobran, commentator and nationally syndicated columnist

"Today’s federal government is considerably at odds with that envisioned by the framers of the Constitution. Thomas J. DiLorenzo gives an account of how this came about in The Real Lincoln."
—Walter E. Williams, from the foreword

"A peacefully negotiated secession was the best way to handle all the problems facing America in 1860. A war of coercion was Lincoln’s creation. It sometimes takes a century of more to bring an important historical event into perspective. This study does just that and leaves the reader asking, ‘Why didn’t we know this before?’ "
—Donald Livingston, professor of philosophy, Emory University

"Professor DiLorenzo has penetrated to the very heart and core of American history with a laser beam of fact and analysis."
—Clyde Wilson, professor of history, University of South Carolina, and editor, The John C. Calhoun Papers
