Description

President Jefferson Davis was a George Washington without the reward of a man who was first in the hearts of his countrymen. And this book is about the life and times of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America. But more importantly, it is a look back at the root causes that tore the very fabric of America asunder. And as President Davis prophetically warned, sixteen years after the Civil War formally ended, "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena." His words have application to modern-day America. Today, we again find America on the brink of a new and even more costly Civil War. We find an overbearing federal government again usurping the Constitution, and broadening its powers beyond what the Founding Fathers ever designed it to have. Our Founding Fathers attempted to limit the thirst for power of that federal government by enacting the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. And that Amendment, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. It stands for the proposition that we have a republic based on Federalism, which undergirds the entire plan of the original Constitution, by stating that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the states or the people. In drafting this amendment, the framers had two purposes in mind: first, as a necessary rule of constructing how our government works; and second, as a reaffirmation of the nature of the federal system, but usurpers in the federal executive, legislative, and the judicial branches have substituted their wills for the fundamental laws and precepts upon which this great nation was founded. We see it in a federal government that ignores the laws of the land, and invades the very jurisdictions of the states to remove God and prayer from our classrooms and the public square, and dictates, amongst other things, the definition of "marriage," when "life" begins, and what constitutes "traditional families" and "states rights." It is a recipe for disaster. It divides the nation, and sets the stage for a coming secession, not unlike the one we experienced in the time of Davis and Lincoln. "Resurrecting Jefferson Davis" is a firsthand account of that time in America's past when men of good conscience found no other alternative than to break the bonds which they formed in the face of a common enemy, only to fight the very enemies of their founding principles. This is President Jefferson Davis' story, and in many ways it is our story as well. Whether we as a people choose to travel the same path of our forefathers into civil war is up to us, and how we address our political and social dialog in the coming months and years will determine the very fate of America and the future of our children and their children. It is a time of great responsibility, to be greatly borne, a time when we renew the promise of America, or condemn our posterity to the long winter of war. But, as I said before, this is Jefferson Davis' story. It is one worth resurrecting in our nation for many reasons, not the least of which is avoiding a second Civil War. I hope and pray it will be a great blessing to you!show more
