ENDORSEMENTS

“The great bloodletting of 1861–1865 is still the most important turning point in American history. It is, as displayed in ‘Lincoln’s Quest for Empire,’ the origin of everything that troubles so many of us in American society today. You will never find anywhere a superior presentation in word and picture of what happened in those years and its questionable results.”

-Clyde Wilson Emeritus Distinguished Professor of History, University of South Carolina

“I didn’t think anyone in our times had the courage to tell the truth on so many levels...”

-Bill Potter Independent Scholar, Historian, and Author

“It is a handsome and powerful production! I admire your courage in making it, and I can only imagine how much time and effort went into this project. I hope that many people will watch it and learn from it.”
