Books, Lincoln's Marxists
In 1865, Karl Marx praised Lincoln as a “single-minded son of the working class.” This book examines why Marx—and other socialists—supported Mr. Lincoln’s War and notes his negative influence on modern society. Firsthand accounts and insight from notable historians shatter contemporary views of both the sixteenth president and the early Republicans.The book also examines Lincoln’s religious views, disputing the common belief that he was a pious Christian, citing examples of his pagan beliefs from firsthand accounts. This history illustrates how radical socialists laid the groundwork for today’s ever-expanding federal government and urges readers to reclaim lost liberty. Addendums include thought-provoking articles and a recommended reading list.
