9784871873161: Horatio Seymour, New York's Governor, Attacks Abe Lincoln's War

Why are the speeches of Horatio Seymour against President Abraham Lincoln and his Civil War, important today, when Lincoln is an American icon? As “Honest Abe” and “The Great Emancipator”, he is viewed as a semi-god whose grand virtues far outweigh his minuscule human failings. But he was not always viewed this way. During his presidency he was feared and hated, not only by Southerners, but also by his political enemies, the Democrats and, to a surprising degree, by the rank-and-file of his own Republican Party. They recognized that he had become a dictator, and was turning the U.S.A. into a permanent military dictatorship. Today, much of this has been swept under the rug. But Horatio Seymour's words have kept that reality alive. Once again, why is this important for today? Because, much of the negatives in 21st century American society; the centralization of power, the political indifference to the popular will, the continual expansion of the “military-industrial complex,” can all be traced to their starting point: Abe Lincoln's presidency.

About the Author:

John Chodes is a New Yorker, which explains his interest in Horatio Seymour. The Civil War and the problems related to Reconstruction have the subject of more than 25 articles, three monographs, one full length biographical book, and four chapters in another book. The articles have appeared in “Chronicles,” “The Freeman,” “The Pragmatist,” “Southern Partisan,” “Southern Events;” the four chapters were published in “Lincoln Reconsidered,” The biography, “Jabez Curry and the Re-education of the Old South” tells the story of this famous state sovereignty politician and Confederate cavalry officer, who, after the Civil War, betrayed the Southern people by helping the Northern conquerors “re-educate” their children with a radical new kind of schooling. Small portions of Horatio Seymour's speeches and his war in New York against Abraham Lincoln, have been published in “Southern Partisan,” and “Southern Events.” Eight plays by Mr. Chodes have been produced Off-Broadway in New York. Other non-fiction books: “Bruce Jenner,” a biography of the 1976 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist. Also, “Corbitt,” the biography of Ted Corbitt, the first African American to compete in an Olympic marathon, and Chodes' athletic mentor. This book received the Road Runners Club of America's “Journalistic Excellence Award,” and “The New York Times” rated it “One of the best sports books of the year.” The success of “Corbitt” led Mr. Chodes to be technical advisor to Dustin Hoffman in the Paramount Pictures film, “Marathon Man.” As Communications Director for the Libertarian Party of New York, he has had over 100 articles, TV and radio editorial replies and chapters in books published, promoting the “free market.”
