Blood Money the Civil War and the Federal Reserve
"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from the defects of the Constitution or confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nation, of coin, credit and circulation."-- John Adams 2nd President of the USA.
John Remington Graham, the author, concludes from his historical research that the fatal wound to our Constitutional Republic was not slavery, protective tariffs or secession as they are rather false flags to obscure the real cause of the War for Southern Independence. It was money that bathed our nation in blood, both North and South. This fatal wound to our original form of government with its rule of law called federalism vanished in 1865 with the defeat of the South.
The casual reader or serious student of American history and its economic history will benefit from this seventy-five-page book of nine chapters. Including thought provoking reexamination of the issues that are the usual subjects for the causes of the American Civil War. Chapter headings include The Questions of Secession and Slavery, The Case of Dred Scott, Inciting Hatred: Uncle Tom's Cabin, Banking and Currency and The Money Trust, and A Conspiratorial View of History.
The book is very well documented by an abundance of sources from some of the most notable men of the 19th and 20th century who began to investigate, speak and write about the trail of blood money that ignited The American Civil War. Such notables as Congressman Charles A. Lindberg Sr. and Congressman Louis T. McFadden will be found throughout the book bringing to light the sequences of events in an easy to read style. The author delivers a well-defined historical analysis of those forces that reshaped our country's economic, governmental framework, educational, social and religious institutions long before the subversion and betrayal of our American liberties by President Woodrow Wilson via the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The innocent blood of millions of Americans of the 19th, 20th and now into the 21st century can be laid at the feet of American and European high finance that had its roots in the 19th century.
The historical heart beat of Blood Money is found on page 47 with reference to the Hazard Circular by Congressman Charles A. Lindberg Sr. It explains legislation passed by Congress on banking and currency during and after the American Civil War. "The purpose of which The Hazard Circular was in any event distributed among wealthy citizens in the Northern States in 1862, seeking their investment in war bonds to pay for the military conquest of the Southern States ... Rather than assume the care of the slaves, they would control labor with the use of capital. It necessarily followed that, when the laborer ceased to be of service because of sickness or old age, he would be of no concern to capital. He could either get well or die without the capitalists being obliged to provide medical attention or bury the dead. Such was the interest that capital had in the result of the Civil War." -- Congressman Charles A Lindberg Sr. of Minnesota in Banking and Currency, and the Money Trust, National Capital Press, Washington, 1913, pp. 102-103.
One of most important men who was exposing the bloody trail of paper money at this time is Henry Clay Dean an attorney from Iowa. "Capitalists and stock gamblers in Europe," he said, "by their alliance with the political adventurers of America, carefully planned this war in the interest of despotism and the funding systems. They anticipated every argument, and prepared the public mind for war in advance. Therefore, the most important consequence of the American Civil War was loss of the monetary independence of the United States. And that, as a practical matter, was also loss of political independence behind a facade of "freedom' and "democracy.'" P. 16.
Unless Americans have a true knowledge and a true understanding of how they were maneuvered by the financial interests in America and Europe into a war of unbelievable carnage and misery of that tragic era in America history, Americans today will not understand how and why America has lost its "Exceptional Greatness" our political independence and our economic liberty. The profound effect this book has on me is this, Blood Money will give anyone the knowledge and understanding to discuss in an intelligent manner a complicated issue broken down to a simple common denominator. It will start a political revolution in this country overnight!
As Americans we have been socialized to think about and address the many political tentacles of an octopus and not making any significant gains of restoring our Constitutional Republic. There is only one issue to ask anyone who is a candidate for public office or is in political office now. Will you introduce or support to repeal The Federal Reserve Act of 1913? It is the only relevant question to ask that will end most of the problems in America. Cut off the head of the octopus by killing it! Repeal The Federal Reserve Act now!
Blood Money is available at Amazon.com for around $10.00.
