Even in the Christian schools in the South it’s amazing to see the amount of worshipful Lincoln propaganda these days. Dickson helps us set the record straight in his booklet, Shattering the Icon of Abraham Lincoln.
The real Lincoln, says Dickson in this punchy, source-referenced booklet, was quite different than the one portrayed in television, schoolbooks and motion pictures. The author marshals evidence from throughout his career to show that Abraham Lincoln was a hypocrite, an opportunist, an instigator and wager of ruthless war, and the nation’s first political tyrant. Particularly critical of the 16th president’s savage war against the Confederacy, the author contends that Lincoln should be regarded as a dangerous forerunner of such liberal collectivists as Franklin Roosevelt.
For his own efforts, Sam had this to say:
The astonishing thing about this paper on Abraham Lincoln is that it is needed at all or is considered controversial. In my opinion, one does not have to be a scholar to ferret out obscure and suppressed facets of history to see Abraham Lincoln as he was.
My views on this subject are not unusual. They are those of the overwhelming majority of Southerners both immediately before, during and for decades after the War between the States. My views were also shared by many in the North and the West. Only the passage of time and the studious cultivation of the myth of Abraham Lincoln, coupled with his timely death (timely in the sense of being providential for his place in history) have caused Abraham Lincoln to be raised to the level of a sacred cow in American history.Well said.
If you love the South and want to learn about the man that Lincoln truly was, then you must read Sam’s incredible expose.
