Since the Civil War patriotic Americans have been told that our nation has continued to enjoy the freedom and independence that was fought for and won during the American Revolution. However, a closer examination of the facts as presented in this book tells a different story. During the thirty years before the Civil War the North had been steadily losing its independence from England by borrowing substantial amounts of money from British banks that had to be paid back with interest, by seeking English political advice especially with regard to ending slavery in the Southern States, by developing an economy based on English capitalism and, like the English, becoming more expansionist and more comfortable with increasing the size and centralization of their government. Meanwhile, the South, dominated by the larger and faster growing North, felt its independence slipping away so they chose to become independent of the North by forming a new nation called the Confederate States of America. When that nation was defeated in 1865 the U.S. Independence proclaimed by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence in 1776 essentially ended.
