Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States, The Irrefutable Argument

Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States, The Irrefutable Argument. was reviewed in the most recent Confederate Veteran magazine, July-August, 2016, and here is the review:

 I have several fundraising specials and quantity discounts for camps, chapters and units on that include my book AND the two-DVD set on black Confederates, Mixed Up with All the Rebel Horde, Why Black Southerners Fought for the South in the War Between the States featuring Professor Edward C. Smith.
Stop getting beat up over slavery! Fight back! My 360 page book (and Kindle eBook) is easy to read and thoroughly documented with 218 footnotes and over 200 sources in the bibliography. There are 86 sample pages on the website where you can buy copies signed and numbered by the author.
"Historians used to know - and it was not too long ago - that the War Between the States had more to do with economics than it did with slavery. The current  obsession with slavery as the "cause" of the war rests not on evidence but on ideological considerations of the present day. Gene Kizer has provided us with the conclusive case that the invasion of the Southern States by Lincoln and his party (a minority of the American people) was due to an agenda of economic domination and not to some benevolent concern for slaves. This book is rich in evidence and telling quotations and ought to be on every Southern bookshelf."

"Gene Kizer persuasively shows how the North fought the South out of necessity to prevent economic collapse. No where else is proof of this motive made clearer with indisputable evidence. Mr. Kizer writes with authority from the desire to tell the truth. His common sense style is the product of honesty. One cannot read his work without concluding that this is a man to be trusted."

I am working hard on Volume Two of Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States and two other similar publications that will be out in the next few months.
THANK YOU, and God bless!
