        Today it is Jefferson Davis; tomorrow it will be Thomas Jefferson. P.S. For folks to truly understand Abraham Lincoln and his war against the South, I believe it is absolutely essential to read Thomas DiLorenzo’s phenomenal book “The Real Lincoln: A New Look At Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, And An Unnecessary War.”.
