    The Great History Heist: How Our History Is Being Stolen

    By John Friend

    One of the best newsletters we have read recently focused on updating readers about
    the removal of Confederate monuments by city and state officials is “Dixie
    Heritage,” edited by Dr. Ed DeVries. TBR’s John Friend had the chance to talk to
    DeVries about this subject and other related matters. We know you’ll enjoy his

    Renowned Southern Scholar Speaks

    Interview with Lochlainn Seabrook

    At the same time the liberal establishment is trying to rewrite, falsify and even
    erase true South­ern history, authors like Col. Lochlainn Seabrook keep turning out
    well-researched books countering their lies. TBR’s Dave Gahary caught up with
    Seabrook to talk about his efforts.

    New Orleans Activist Tries to Save Cultural Monuments

    Interview with Charles Edward Lincoln III

    New Orleans has seen multiple monuments to Southern heroes ripped from their

    working to counter this full-frontal assault on our shared cultural past by taking
    the fight to the enemy.

    State Song on the Chopping Block?

    By John Tiffany

    46Maryland couldn’t be allowed to secede as Washington City would have been
    surrounded by hostile states. And Maryland’s state song urges citizens to avenge the

    Blockade-Runners of the South

    By Edward May

    redirected their spoils to their own needy troops in the field.

    Honoring the Ghost

    I woke up this morning and my history was gone

    I woke up this morning in a cold sweat. As I shook off the cobwebs of sleep, I hit
    the television remote, hoping a little meaningless chatter from the talking heads
    might shock me back into reality. I thought I had just finished one of the worst
    nightmares I can ever remember.

    There, on the screen, were thousands of citizens in New Orleans cheering the raising
    of a new statue to replace that of the great Gen. Robert E. Lee—credited by Gen.
    Winfield Scott for being the one man responsible for America’s success in the
    Mexican-American War. The statue of the former commandant of West Point was on the
    ground, having been hauled out of mothballs for the occasion. It was being beaten to
    dust with sledgehammers by a wild band of “Only Black Lives Matter” activists who
    were simultaneously cheering the new statue of Nat Turner being placed on Lee’s old

    The new inscription on the monument read, “Here’s to Nat Turner, the slayer of
    Southern white men, white women and white children—a true American hero.”
    It was just then that the paperboy knocked on the door and reminded me I owed him
    for the last three months of the newspaper. I opened my wallet and pulled out a $20
    bill with the striking visage of Jackson. Not Andrew Jackson, of course, but Samuel
    L. Jackson.

    Even Ulysses Hiram Grant had long ago been removed from our money,
    along with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin—all slaveholders.
    Lincoln had been excised from the $5 bill shortly after liberal activists, both
    black and white, had finally realized that the “Great Emancipator” had been one of
    the most virulent racists ever to hold the presidency. Slaveholder Grant had been
    erased from the $50 bill once it was publicized that the Union general had often
    been quoted as saying, “If I thought this war was to abolish slavery, I would resign
    my commission and offer my sword to the other side,” never mind the fact that no one
    could ever find where and when he actually made this statement. But it didn’t
    matter. Grant was out.

    So I handed the boy my “Jackson” and went back to the TV set. There was a segment
    now being aired on the creation of the new book-burning division of the U.S. federal
    government. In charge was a decrepit Morris Seligman Dees (some people claimed he
    was an automated wax figure) discussing his latest creation, the White Privilege
    Hate Center, an agency dedicated to ferreting out any and all remaining books,
    films, poems and paintings “glorifying” Southern history or anything else that might
    instill any inkling of pride in white people. (Their partner in this effort was, of
    course, the ADL (the Avid Denunciation League). Dees was droning on about the
    success he had recently had in having the racist Washington Monument torn down and
    replaced with a statue of assassinated ex-President Donald Trump being bull-whipped
    by Michelle Obama, our 50th president.

    In a panic, I quickly turned the station to “Animal Planet.” There, commentators
    were jubilantly crowing over three hunters holding up the carcass of the last polar
    bear. These majestic creatures had been systematically hunted down and slaughtered
    simply for being white. The report said that the bear’s head was soon to be mounted
    next to those of the snowshoe hare and the arctic fox, brought to extinction for
    the same reason.

    Where was the good news? Was there any at all? Why, yes. CSPANISH was analyzing a
    bill in Congress officially renaming the Civil War “The War for Slavery.” The story
    centered on one brave congressman who was asking for a rider to the bill. As the war
    was officially to be remembered as a war only for and only about slavery, Rep. Billy
    Weiss of the Caribbean colony of Hatey (to which tens of thousands of white
    Southerners had been deported years before) was suggesting that official language
    should be added thanking the 642,427* Union soldiers who died or were wounded in the
    war for their sacrifice in freeing the slaves. That’s nice, I thought. But, before
    my eyes, Rep. Weiss was gunned down by fellow Rep. Abu Baker from the Muslim-only
    state of Allahbama.

    It was then that I felt a cold splash hit my face. My wife had dumped a bucket of
    ice water on me to wake me up from what she said was “a horrible nightmare.” Thank
    goodness, I thought. It really was just a nightmare.
    But the nightmare, my friends, is just beginning, unless we draw the line and fight
    for true history. You can help in this venture by distributing as many copies of
    this special edition of The Barnes Review as possible. See page 111 for an ad for
    this noble purpose. v

    The idea that those of us with ancestors who fought on the Southern side of the War
    Between the States cannot be proud of their sacrifices or that the Southern flag
    displayed in any form is merely a symbol of bigotry, hatred and racial oppression is
    ridiculous. Perhaps for some it is. But not for the 99% of right-thinking Americans
    who relish true history.
    The facts is, when most Southerners look at that flag they do not even think of
    slavery. They think about the courage it took to fight for self-determination and
    states’ rights—something the Powers That Be hate you contemplating. The guilt trip
    the rabid, radical left is foisting on Southerners is the cornerstone of an effort
    to bring the people of the South to heel and into the New World Order.
    But a good dose of the truth is what they all need!

    500 pages.)

    • The real reasons behind the removal of monuments dedicated to Southern heroes;
    • The truth about the Fort Pillow “massacre”;

    • Interviews with monument activists and historians Lochlainn Seabrook, Ed deVries
    and Charles Edward Lincoln III;
    • Secret societies and the Civil War;

    • The Missouri exodus;
