    Death before Dishonor: The true story of the Confederacy and how it was hidden from America.

    by Stephen Challis

    The history of the Confederacy was written by the victors .Most of it was wrong and designed to mislead .For example The idea that the war was about slavery is wrong,the US congress declaration of 1861 made that crystal clear. Read it for yourself, The fact that Over 3000, slave owners were black.has been ignored ,as has the contribution of around 100,000 black troops who fought for the south.

    Lincon’s Proclamation did not free any slaves in the north. Lincoln far from being an abolitionist constantly opposed any for of integration.He forbade them to vote and intermarry, made speeches throughout his presidency making his thoughts known .

    Lincoln also held sham elections and arrested the entire state legislator of Maryland and threw them in jail to prevent a vote on secession. Armed soldiers were employed to ensure any Democrat trying to vote would be arrested,

    Lastly the Confederate flag that is the subject of so much hate was never a flag representing the Confederate States of America. It was a battle flag used solely on the battlefield.
    These and many other facts have been buried by those with a political agenda.

    You need to known the truth .This book gives it without spin or double meanings. All facts are verifiable and recorded in the historical documents listed ,and they paint a grim picture of the politics of war. Anyone decrying it simply is denying the truth.

    Family Genealogy Queries: BRIGHT BRIGGS & Others (Southern Genealogical Research)

    by R. Stephen Smith

    The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this brief volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed BRIGHT (11 queries total) or BRIGGS (10 queries), as well as BRIMER or BRIMMER (5 queries), BRINSON (4 queries), BRIENT/BRIEN (2 queries), BRIGANCE, BRIGMAN, BRIM, BRILEY, BRILES, BRINAMAN/BRINGMAN, BRINCEFIELD/BRINSFIELD, BRINTON, BRINDLE, BRINKER or BRINKLEY(with 1 query apiece).

    The focus is on families in the southern United States.

    Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although they were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you’re working on the same names or lines.

    Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!

    Note: If you aren’t sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?
