The Barnes Review
Volume XXIII Number 5
The idea that those with ancestors who fought on the Southern side of the War Between the States should be ashamed 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 fact 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! In this special, expanded 112-page issue we have assembled as many interviews and Revisionist articles as we could jam into the pages explaining these facts.

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 comments.
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 pedestals, shrink-wrapped and crated up. But one bold resident has had enough and is working to counter this full-frontal assault on our shared cultural past by taking the fight to the enemy.
A REVISIONIST LOOKS AT THE WAR OF FEDERAL INTERVENTION
By Pat Shannan. The author, long known for countering false history, takes us on a whirlwind tour of the Civil War era, exposing a bevy of commonly believed lies and dealing out a hefty dose of truth from a strong supporter of the South.
DIXIE’S DARK SECRET: BLACK SLAVE OWNERS
By Robert Grooms. Shocking to many is the fact that several of the biggest owners of slaves in the antebellum South were black. Here is a story that has the Black Lives Matter people fuming as their victimization narrative is turned upside down.
REBEL PRIVATE: FRONT & REAR
By Harald Hesstvedt Scharnhorst. Famed author Margaret Mitchell of Gone With the Wind fame said this book by a simple Confederate private influenced her more than any other historical source.
STATE SONG ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK?
By John Tiffany. Maryland 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 Baltimore massacre. How long will this little ditty survive?
THE MISSOURI MASS EXODUS
By Clint Lacy. We’ve discussed before the infamous Gen. Order #11 that demanded entire counties of Missouri be emptied. In this article, we offer the words of the oppressed citizens themselves.
BLOCKADE-RUNNERS OF THE SOUTH
By Edward May. Many have called the Civil War the first real world war. Union and Confederate navies battled on the high seas and Rebel blockade-runners captured U.S. ships and redirected their spoils to their own needy troops in the field.
HONORING THE GHOST
Interview with V.P. Hughes. We admit it. We love Col. John S. Mosby. So when we got the chance to interview one of the foremost Mosby scholars in the world, we jumped at the opportunity.
WHAT HAPPENED AT FORT PILLOW?
By Gene Andrews. A Nathan B. Forrest expert defends the honor of one of the most brilliant military leaders of the modern era, explaining why the “Fort Pillow Massacre” was no massacre at all.
THE JIM CROW DOUBLE-CROSS
By Richard Kelly Hoskins. TBR readers are well aware that there are forces working behind the scenes to control events. In this article, historian Richard Hoskins explains how they ruin race relations.
