I think that's the most tragic aspect of the war, that we were played.
I may disagree with you about the Jesuits and the Catholic Church beign behind the war, but the fact remains that 258,000 sons of the South and
365,000 sons of the North died in this UNNECESSARY war.
I belive that the origins of the war actually lie within the halls of the capitals of Europe. Europe was a society ruled by Kings and Emperors at the
time fo the Civil War. Before the American Revolution, Monarchy and absolutism were unquestioned in Europe. Then those ragamuffin Yank's had to go
and force Cornwallis to surrender on the Virginia Peninsula at Yorktown (With French and Spanish help of course)
This gave the French the idea to rebel which ultimately led to that troll Napoleon (They called him a troll, yet grudgingly had to admit that even
though he was a despot himself, he was a brilliant man who changed the face of Europe forever and ultimately human history)
Napoleon was eventually defeated but the legacy of free rule and free markets spread by French troops all across Europe failed to die.
Att he time fo the American secession crisis, the houses of power in Europe saw a chance to gain their revenge and a measure of control.
America was growing at an alarming rate and it was undoubted that within a few years her economy would allow it to become a financially independant
nationm no longer dependant on European banking loans. only a few years after the civil war German chancellor Otto Von Bosmark was quoted:
"The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe.
These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independance,
which would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed..."
The Rothschilds and the Illuminatti planned and sent agents into the United States to bring about the forment of civil war for their own sick
Niall Ferguson, a Rothschild researcher and biographer wrote:
"There is a substantial and unexplained gap in private Rothschild correspondence between 1854 and 1860 and that nearly all copies of outgoing letters
from the London Rothschilds were destroyed at the orders of successive senior partners."
What isn't known all that widespreadly (I do beleive I created a word) is that Britian and France sent troops to Cananda and Mexico respectively
during the Civil War. Europe hoped that the South would win or either force the war to a political stalemate, allowing Europe to swallow both weakend
Fortunately for the US and unfortunately for European ambitions, the Confederacy was a little too successfull.
Despite a defeat at Shiloh Tennessee (April 6-7 1862, 23,000 losses) the South had inflicted heavier losses on Grant's Fedrals and had caused many in
the North to resent the war. Anti-war movements erupted throughout the North not long following the bloodbath at Shiloh.
In The East Robert E Lee was named commander of the Army of Northern Virginia after Gneral Joseph Johnston was severly injured by shrapnel att he
battle of Seven Pines. Beginning on June 25th 1862 Lee launched a series of relentless offensives against the more numerous Federals under McClellan
and over a period of seven days drove the Federal army from the gates of Richmond, although at a ccost to both sides of 36,000 men.
Lee then stormed northwards, stomping a Federal army at Second Mannassas and invading Maryland.
In the West, Rebels counterattacked into Northern Arkansas, Vicksburg repelled the US navy, and Braxton Bragg assumed command of the Army of Tennesse
and launched a campaign that retook Northern Alabama, Central Tennessee and reached nearly to the border of Ohioh!
Lincoln then issued the Emancipation Proclomation.
The proclomation (although actually freeing no slaves) was a brilliant political move. It kept in check the Europeans by giving the war a moral
pretext (false though it was) which kept the European populace with siding with any overt military action in favor of the South.
It was to be issued after a big Federal victory...One never came.
Lee fought McClellan to a draw at Antietam and 24,000 Americans lost their lives in a single day of combat. in the West Bragg won the battle of
Perryville Kentucky on October 8 1862, but was forced to retreat due to beign badly outnumbered and to having severe supply difficulties.
in the end the Europeans never got their chance to go to war with either Americas.
Lincoln firmed the northern economy by getting congressional approval to issue paper curerency without the backing of any gold standard. Thye were
printed using green ink hence the name greenbacks. This fiat money negated the need for European loans and as a result the Northern economy rebounded
while the Southern economy, struggling through a blockade by the Federal navy, crumbled. (It helped that Czar Alexander II saw a way to inflict a
mortal blow to the French and British should they intervene in the AMerican war. He stationed fleets off the coast of Virginina and a fleet at San
Francisco to interdict those nations commerce lanes should war erupt, I don'tt hink Brit and France wanted a war with the Confedracy, the Federal
government and the Russians all at once)
By early 1865 the South was bled dry. The Missisippi River was in Federal hands as was all of Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland, most of
Arkansas, half of Louisiana, and Northern Virginia. The Shenandoah Valley was burnt to the ground, Georgia was demolished as was South Carolina by a
vengefull Federal army and the two principal Confederate armies were in no shape to afect the outcome. The Army of Tennesse had been virtually
destroyed as a fighting force in Hoods irredeemable Tennessee campaing of Nov-December 1864 and Lees ANV was bottled up in a seige of
in steps John Wilkes Booth. booth was a member of the Knights of the Golden Circle and has been established through other Conspiracy researchers (Like
Jim Marrs) to be connected to the illuminatti, the Italian Carbonari and the Rothschilds through his relationship with Secretary of War for the
Confedracy, Judah P. Benjamin. (A practicing Jew by the way)
It is not unconceivable that the Rothschilds placed a hit on President Lincoln largely for the outcome of the war and for the issuing of a seperate US
Isn't it ironic that our other assasinated President, JFK, also issued debt-free currency?
From Jim Marrs book "Rule by Secrecy":
it is historic fact that the Lincoln assasination case was a complex plot including smuggling and kidnapping plans that involved Knights of the Golden
Circle agents (The KGC were an offshoot of the Masonic Movement) 'The fact remains that the story of why Abraham Lincoln was murdered can only be
completed within the confines of the Confederate cabal in Canada [which included KGC members as well as British agents]...' noted conspiracy author
Starkey. The plot also involved some of the highest offcies in Washington, including Lincolns Secretary of War Edwin Stanton."
Sounds eerily reminiscent of JFk and LBJ does it not?
While the Catholic Church may have been involved in the wars plannings in some way might be certain (When Emporer Augustine initiated the Church as
the sole Church of the Roman Empire, it can be said that the Catholic Church is an extension to this day even of the Roman Empire) I beleive that it
was rather the bankers of the European nations which conspired to cause this most tragic of American wars.
