When we think of Lincoln, most of us do not consider the sixteenth president as a Marxist revolutionary.
Yet, a little research uncovers some very interesting- slightly confounding- connections between Abe Lincoln and the father of the Communist movement. As fascinating as that might be, there is an even bigger shock in store when it comes to the origins of the Republican Party.
This quote in the meme above reportedly came early in his political career December 1847. For some of us who grew up thinking of “Honest Abe” as a folksy backwoods lawyer, it’s a bit jarring to hear him talking about labor issues. It’s not the image many of us have of the man who freed the slaves and held the nation together.
It’s hard enough to think of him as a Republican.But there was more to that quote. Lincoln also wrote in that same passage: These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people..MORE!

Though Nathan Bedford Forrest was not a writer, had little formal education, never authored a book, and was not a professional speaker, he did leave us with a number of witty comments, profound words, and sublime statements. Award-winning author, Southern historian, and Forrest scholar Lochlainn Seabrook has gathered together some of the more memorable and impressive of these and forged them into a small but fascinating work:
Gunny G: Civil War massacre launched reparations debate….. “On a rainy night in early 1865, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton arrived in Savannah, Ga. — which the Union had captured weeks earlier — with a question: What should become of newly free black people? It was a question that many in power had been asking for some time. What was different this time was to whom the question was posed: the newly free black people themselves. It was a visit born of a massacre about a month before, and it launched a debate that continues to this day…………..”

This time the source of their knee-slapping whoppers is a hilarious attempt to cover up the fact that their hero apparently read and studied a white supremacist screed.A recent article that appeared in the Huffington Post, FOX news online, the Daily Mail, and elsewhere described how Lincoln’s handwriting had been
verified by handwriting experts in an 1854 book entitled Types of Mankind.
