Synopsis:

Patterned on the Constitution of the United States of America, the Constitution of the Confederate States of America was written during February and March 1861 by a committee of twelve Southern political leaders, whose states had recently seceded from the Union. A revolutionary document then as now, its writers and supporters hoped the CS Constitution would continue the conservative values of America's first and purest constitution, the Articles of Confederation, which had been penned expressly for the new United States of America-officially known as "the Confederacy" from 1781 to 1789 and unofficially as "the Confederate States of America" into the early 1800s. Thus, naturally the Southern Founding Fathers gave their new country the same name in March 1861.

Though the CS Constitution has long been unfairly relegated to the historical scrap heap by liberals and the pro-North movement, in truth it is more relevant today than it was at the time of its inception, on the eve of Lincoln's illegal and unnecessary war against states' rights. For the US government has grown into a monstrous tyrannical body that would not even be recognizable by its own founders; men who intentionally filled the US Constitution with countless restrictions to prevent this very type of out-of-control expansion.

In an effort to remind us of what we have lost, as well as what we might regain in the future, award-winning author and unreconstructed Southern historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook has brought this important document back to life in his fascinating and educational book The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained: A Clause-by-Clause Study of the South's Magna Carta. After a brief introduction concerning the history of the CS Constitution, Colonel Seabrook takes the reader on an enlightening journey of discovery through every one of the document's 103 clauses. Arcane and often undecipherable 18th- and 19th-Century wording is explained in plain English, while the Constitution's numerous political provisions are laid out in simple terms that both the scholar and the layperson will appreciate. An in-depth index and bibliography are included.

This is a truly significant work that is sure to change the way you look at the Confederacy, the US government, and our three American constitutions. A unique, affordable, and tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both Civil War buffs and historical educators alike, The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained is the perfect addition to any retail outlet, including not only bookstores, but Civil War sites, historic houses, and museum gift stores. Available in paperback and hardcover.

Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!

His other titles include: The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn’t Want You to Know About Lincoln’s War; Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America’s Oldest Political Tradition; Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross; and Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!

About the Author: Award-winning historian, scholar, and the world's most prolific, respected, and popular pro-South author.
