In this novel that is more fact than fiction, the author reveals the true nature of the Northern Abolitionist movement of the Nineteenth Century as a bloodthirsty conspiracy of religious fanatics determined to end American slavery by a total destruction of the people of the Southern States. Written five years prior to the outbreak of the War Between the States, this book is evidence that the primary motivation for the secession of the Southern States was self-preservation and not the extension of slavery as is popularly believed.
