The South Was Right!

The South Was Right!

This is probably old news to many of you, but I recently discovered and purchased this book for my library. The informative, enlightening, non-reconstructed and bold writing of the Kennedy brothers, James and Walter (not John and Robert, obviously!) is quite riveting.

The book, published by Pelican Publishing Company, is titled “The South was Right!” A rather catchy title there! Ain’t it? I reckon they wanted to dispense with the formalities of modern political correctness and ensure that their stated aim and end for the treatise was unmistakable. If so, they clearly hit their mark.

The  editorial review on Amazon reads:

Product Description

An authoritative and documented study of the mythology behind Civil War history, clearly exhibiting how the South was an independent country invaded, captured, and still occupied by a vicious aggressor.

About the Author

Descendants of Civil War soldiers, twin brothers James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy have held posts with the Sons of Confederate Veterans for several years. Both also are founding members of the League of the South. In their spare time, the brothers enjoy participating in reenactments of Civil War battles. They are also the authors of The South Was Right! and Why Not Feedom!: America’s Revolt Against Big Government, both published by Pelican.

I found a copy at the local Barnes and Noble (believe it or not). However, I have seen it available online for substantially less than what I paid for it there.

This is MUST HAVE reading for anyone interested in the war between the States!

  1. I’m now about half way through this book, and I’m impressed with the solid, overwhelming, validiating research for their arguments. This book is absolutely ESSENTIAL for any student or lover of the South. It’s also a great resource to gift to a friend, especially a doubter or dissenter.

    I also have this book and it’s like drinking from a fire hidrant! It’s heavy reading, but that’s simply because it’s packed full of incredible eye-opening reality. Southerners who read it will be ready for any intellectual attack against their heritage; seekers and even doubters will be amazed and even shocked at the myths they have been believing for so long. I LOVE this book!!

    I am on my second reading of this book. It is a fantastic book ! As is ” The Real Lincoln ” by Thomas Di Lorenzo, ” When In the Course of Human Events ” by Charles Adams, and ” Southern By the Grace of God “. These are books that I would recommend every Southerner to read.

    I have read it. When my father-in-law stayed the winter camping out in his truck in the mountains of Alabama last year, he visited the libraries there and picked up the book along with others. He said that the libraries are making a move to get rid of such books. Interesting, enlightening and motivating read. I recommend everyone read it with an open mind. The southern people have suffered greatly and are suffering from the loss of freedom. I am from the Catskill Mountains of NY. Both my mothers family line(Dutch) and my fathers family line(Italian) have been here in this area since the 1600s.I have read Elliot Wiggington’s foxfire books and am familiar with almost everything in them.Just like Hank Williams Jr.’s song ‘Country Boy Can Survive’, I can skin a buck and have plowed a field all day long, but now, after almost 400 years of living here, we are in imminent danger of being taxed out of house and home. Although I commend the authors of this book, I believe that the south should reach out to the north to jump on board. We are suffering too. Does anyone really think that we are that different? My mother and sister(real hardworking country girls) took a trip down south to visit relatives a few years back and stopped to get gas and the guy at the gas station screamed “you yankees get back to New York where you came from”. I remember visiting the Museum of Appalachia in Norris Tenn.some years ago and I told one of the gentlemen working there that I was from the mountains of NY, He said to me,” You must really get that big money from down in NY City”. Fact is, that’s not the case. I have heard that the New York metropolitan area has more millionaires than anywhere else in the US but for the most part, those people will devour you if you let them. I have worked very hard my whole life and have seen our situation get worse and worse and others say the same. If you do a websearch for Appalachia or Appalachian Counties, you will see that the cultural region of Appalachia extends from Alabama to the southern tier of New York State. ( 14 counties in NY) And although the rest of the state is not considered Appalachia, it is mostly rural. Over 60 NY counties have passed resolutions against the governor’s recent gun ban. The state of Vermont is mostly rural and although considered a “blue” state, has more gun freedoms than some states in the south. But this is not just about gun rights. We have lost and are losing our freedoms all across this nation. Let’s not make the same mistake again. Together, North and South we can win back our liberty.
