Did you know that the United States of America began life as a confederacy, and that it was, in fact, officially called “the Confederacy” between 1781 and 1789?
Did you know that for those eight years the U.S. technically operated as, and was also nicknamed, “The Confederate States of America,” and that because of this our first constitution was named “The Articles of Confederation”?
Did you know that the conservative South fought the liberal North not to “preserve slavery,” as has been falsely taught, but to preserve the original limited confederate government of the Founding Fathers and the conservative ideals embedded in our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation?
And did you know that it was for these reasons that in 1861 the seceding Southern states called themselves “The Confederate States of America”?
In this brief but educational book, The Articles of Confederation Explained: A Clause-by-Clause Study of America’s First Constitution, award-winning author and historian Col. Lochlainn Seabrook explores these topics and more in an in-depth look at the 13 Articles of Confederation, first formulated in 1777. The complete and original text of each article is provided, along with a clear and simple explanation describing its meaning and intended purpose.
Also included in this wonderfully illustrated little work is a list of the 10 presidents of the U.S. Confederacy, who served, according to specifications laid out in Article Nine, between the years 1779 and 1789.
With this book you will gain new insight into some of the fascinating facts that are left out of our history books. Discover for yourself why some of America’s greatest thinkers—such as the author’s cousin Patrick Henry— embraced the Articles of Confederation and argued against replacing them with the U.S. Constitution and a bigger, more powerful central government.
