“Lochlainn Seabrook is a genius writer!” - STEVEN WARD“I believe that the South can be resurrected and Lochlainn Seabrook is the man to do it . . .” - FRED SALTERAMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Best author ever.” - EMILY“We get asked a lot what books we use and read. We don’t do many modern historians, but we make an exception for some, and Lochlainn Seabrook is one of them. His works are completely well researched from original documents, and heavily footnoted and documented. Any books from Mr. Seabrook are a must have for anyone undertaking serious research into the truth of Lincoln’s War on the South.” - SOUTHERN HISTORICAL SOCIETY (Facebook)"Mr. Seabrook is the best of the Southern writers." - DANA HORTON MAKEPEACE“Lochlainn’s books are the most clear concise books that I’ve ever read on Lincoln’s War.” - SHAYNE TRACY“Looking forward to more Lochlainn Seabrook books, my favourite historian!” - ALBERTO IGLESIAS“Lochlainn Seabrook is known as ‘the new Shelby Foote’ and you will understand why when you read his books.” - JACK M. (Amazon review)"Lochlainn Seabrook is one of the finest authors on true history in this century. His books should be on every student's desk." - RONDA SAMMONS RENO (President Georgia Society Order of Confederate Rose)EBAY REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “All of Col. Seabrook’s books are great. I have bought most of them and want to end up buying them all.” - DAVID VAUGHNFIVE-STAR EBAY CUSTOMER REVIEW: "Lochlainn's books are always very informative." - VMICADET76“Lochlainn pulls together such arcane facts with relative ease, compiling these into ordinary prose that strike to the heart with substance, no fluff-speak. I am awestruck! Really. He is an inspiration to me.” - JAY KRUIZENGA (Michigan)"Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook is the premier Confederate defender. He is the most well researched and heavily documented author I’ve ever read. His books are must haves. Everything he writes should be required reading! I assure you, you won't be disappointed. One simply cannot go wrong with his books. Cannot go wrong. Mr. Seabrook is awesome! It’s no wonder he won the UDC’s Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal. I have never read any other author as well researched and footnoted as him. Never. Thank God for Sea Raven Press. Thank God! . . . Mr. Seabrook is second to none. I simply cannot do without him. Cannot. I’ve been in love with Mr. Seabrook for almost 5 years now. His quick wit and logic is enough reason to purchase his books. But the mere fact that he’s so extensively researched is icing on the cake. Mr. Seabrook is my favorite, hands down.” - LANI BURNETTE RINKEL (cofounder of Mid-South Flaggers)“Mr. Seabrook’s work is very well researched and documented.” - BULL TOM FARTHING“I love your books. Gonna order some more real soon to add to my collection.” - GLORIA PEOPLES ELAMFIVE-STAR AMAZON BOOK REVIEW: “I have a new favorite author and his name is Lochlainn Seabrook.” - J. EWING“Sea Raven Press is my go-to source for Southern Confederacy history. Col. Seabrook writes the truth and freely shares his documented facts.” - WOODY W. WOODWARD“Lochlainn Seabrook is an incredible writer and I love all of his books on the South. Especially his 12 great books on General Nathan Bedford Forrest. His writing is brilliant. Never have I read anyone explain the views of the South like Colonel Seabrook does!” - JOEY (eBay customer)“I’ve already read a couple of Col. Seabrook’s books and I must say his writing is brilliant, and I enjoy his views on the South and the Confederacy. I look forward to reading more of his masterpieces. Thank you.” - JOEY (eBay customer)“Col. Seabrook’s writing is incredible and a breath of fresh air. We need more men like him in this world. I thank God for his writings. It’s exactly what I need and I look forward to eventually buying and reading all of his books about the Confederacy and the Southern way.” - JOEY (eBay customer)“Mr. Seabrook, thank you ever so much for blessing us with your most enlightening works.” - LAURENCE DRURYEBAY CUSTOMER REVIEW: “I love Lochlainn Seabrook’s style and approach. It's not the 'norm.' What a miracle his books are. I will own all of Mr. Seabrook’s books on Jesus someday! That is a fact! He is a literal life changing author! Amazing books!" - KEITH PARISH (New York)“Col. Seabrook never disappoints. He backs up every statement with factual documentation. Damn Yankees don’t like what he has to say, but facts are facts.” - WOODY W. WOODWARD"I like Col. Seabrook because he speaks plainly and explains things that other historians refuse to talk about (because they just don't have a clue). I had studied American history before discovering Col. Seabrook, but I didn't understand the pre-Civil War ideologies until I read his works (in particular his book Abraham Lincoln Was a Liberal, Jefferson Davis Was a Conservative). I knew before that the two major U.S. parties had switched platforms in the late 19th century, but it was almost impossible to find someone who explained the matter as clearly as Col. Seabrook does!" - ALBERTO IGLESIAS (Spain)“I think I own 10 of Lochlainn’s books, and they are by far, hands down, the best written books addressing the real issues faced by Southerners today about the ignorance of the War for Southern Independence. I highly recommend them!” - PAUL SCOFIELDEBAY REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “REALITY! TRUTH IN WORDS!”: Lochlainn Seabrook's books are much more well researched and authoritative than those eminently celebrated as being the authorities on the subjects he writes on. You can always trust to find the truth in his writings. He’s not one trying to become celebrated by making assumptions that somehow are thought to be and [later] become facts. He does not rewrite history, but instead shows it as it is.” - GARY STIER“All of Lochlainn Seabrook’s books are extremely interesting. His exhaustive biography, for example, of Nathan Bedford Forrest entitled A Rebel Born is a masterpiece. There’s so much misinformation out there about Forrest that the real history of the man has been forgotten. My friend Cassidy Ravensdale keeps me updated on all of Mr. Seabrook’s books and Sea Raven Press.” - KEITH CRAVENGOOGLE REVIEW: “I stumbled upon Sea Raven Press and the books of Lochlainn Seabrook a couple years ago when searching for the alternative health book The Hormesis Effect: the Miraculous Healing Power of Radioactive Stones, published by Sea Raven Press. Intrigued by the numerous “Civil War” titles of Col. Seabrook, and due in part to my interest in Lincoln’s War, I took the plunge and purchased my first book. Col. Seabrook has been called ‘the new Shelby Foote’ by many of his admirers; however, I find his prolific writing style, his exhaustive research, and his ability to shed light on hidden truths leagues above Mr. Foote. Lochlainn Seabrook has quickly become my favorite writer. I have purchased over 10 of his books and will continue until I own his complete works. A searcher for the truth in all things I believe wholeheartedly that God led me to Sea Raven Press and the writings of Col. Seabrook. I have learned so much over the past couple years through his writings. A former Marine my motto has always been: ‘God, Country, Corps’. I took an oath to defend the Constitution of these united States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Seabrook has redefined ‘Country’ in my eyes and given my oath an entire new meaning. I now understand what it means to be a true Conservative and how Jefferson Davis was a Conservative through and through, while the liberal Constitution-hating Lincoln was not a friend of either the Constitution or the Negro. He did not free a single slave. His so-called Emancipation Proclamation was a war-time measure that only sought to free the southern slave(s) – not those in the North. Little did I know that there were Northern Generals, like Grant, who were slave-holders; Grant did not free his slaves until the passing of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution post-war 1865. They were NOT fighting a war to end slavery and racist bigotry was rampant throughout the North. This was nothing but a smoke-screen. The real cause of the war is on-going: the fight between big-government liberals and limited-government conservatives. Thank you, Sea Raven Press and Col. Lochlainn Seabrook, for opening my eyes and thank you God for leading me to the truth. One further note: Cassidy, owner of Sea Raven Press, has been a certain delight. She promptly replies to emails and writes a courteous note with each well-packaged delivery. Southern charm personified. It is so difficult in this fast-food society to find real customer service these days. Sea Raven Press is a blessing.” - JAY KRUIZENGA“I totally agree with the Google review above. I’m working my way through Colonel Seabrook’s works also. Never have I seen a more cogent display of truth in this matter. And yes, Cassidy [the publisher] is a class act. She is a jewel.” - DOUG BOREN“I love all of Colonel Seabrook’s books. They are informative and enlightening, and his warm Southern hospitality writing style makes you feel right at home, especially if you’re from dear old Dixie!” - KEITH CRAVEN (Facebook)“Read Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook’s books. Education is our best weapon against the idiots who disrespect our Confederate flag. Within those pages are the weapons we need to fight those who put down the Confederacy. Instead of just cursing at them, supply them with facts and dumbfound them. They won’t know what to do or say.” - RANDY ARNOLD (Facebook)GOOGLE REVIEW: “I read a lot of books and materials, and travel to many Civil War sites. But I have been blown away by Lochlainn Seabrook’s small pamphlet books! Incredible information and research for such small books! In all I have purchased four books from Sea Raven Press: The Quotable Stonewall Jackson, The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln, Slavery 101, and Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! I must say that I was in shock by the facts that Lochlainn Seabrook has uncovered about the four above mentioned titles! Being from Pennsylvania we were never taught anything in school that cast the South and the Confederacy in a positive light! Teachers in junior high and high school beat the same drum in our heads: that the North was good and the South was bad! In a nutshell that was the timeworn pattern we were given! Well I say if you want to learn the true facts, buy any of the above books! Mr. Seabrook has done his homework and doesn’t present opinions. He uses their own words and presents the facts as they were spoken over 150 years ago! Thank you Lochlainn Seabrook for unearthing an amazing amount of information that I can’t believe was snuck under the rug! It’s now out in the open for all to learn from.” - STEPHEN SCHRAMM (Pennsylvania)“Lochlainn Seabrook's work is an absolute treasure of scholarship and historic scope.” - MARK WAYNE CUNNINGHAM (Kentucky)“Col. Lochlainn Seabrook is a fine man.” - INVERITATE (eBay)“These are awesome books by Colonel Seabrook. He tells the truth! We were taught in school how great Lincoln was. He was not ‘Honest Abe.’” - FREDA JOHNSON COBB (Facebook)“Mr. Seabrook’s command of CSA history is breathtaking. The same with his works on mythology and Christology. He deserves great renown - check out his books!” - MARGARET SIMMONSEBAY REVIEW: “I recommend anything written by Lochlainn Seabrook." - HOTRODMOB“I love Seabrook’s writings. LOVE!!! At age 55 I began researching the Civil War for a project I was working on. Imagine this Southern girl’s surprise when I learned that Lincoln and the Civil War was not at all what I was taught in history class!!! I’m in the middle of my first Lochlainn Seabrook book. Oh my!!!! Should be required reading in the government schools. So grateful to know the truth! Keep writing Lochlainn!!!” - REBECCA DALRYMPLE (Facebook)“I adore Mr. Seabrook’s style and I love his books. I love an author that does proper research, and still finds a way to engage the reader. Mr. Seabrook does an admirable job of both. His love of the South is clearly conveyed.” - DONALD CAUL“Lochlainn Seabrook is a well thought of author. I have had his books recommended to me on several occasions.” - SUSAN RICHARDSON“Glad I discovered Mr. Seabrook! He’s my favorite author on the War! He writes eye opening books! Unbelievable the facts he unearths - and he backs it all up with truth, notes, footnotes, and bibliography! What a great underrated and informative writer. He always amazes me! He must not sleep much when he does his research. His books always see the whole picture. His timelines and bibliographies are incredible. He always provides carefully reasoned arguments! He’s the best. To me I think he’s better than the late great Shelby Foote! America needs more like Lochlainn Seabrook. I can’t wait to own all of his books on the war someday. Everyone who wants the Truth, who seeks the Truth and wants the full story, should read his books.” - JOHN BULL BADER (Ohio)“I love all of Colonel Seabrook’s books!” - DEBBIE SIDLEAMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “Lochlainn Seabrook is well educated and versed in what he writes and I’m impressed with the delivery.” - THOMAS L. WHITE“Please give my regards to Mr. Lochlainn Seabrook, one of the finest Southern gentlemen and authors I know.” - PRIVATE EMAIL, NAME WITHHELD (Denmark)“God bless Lochlainn Seabrook!” - KEITH CRAVEN“Thank you Lochlainn Seabrook for your wonderful books! You are the real deal! You are an amazing author and I love your books!!” - SOPHIA MEOW CELLIST (Facebook)“I really enjoy Mr. Seabrook’s books! His knowledge is beyond belief! I learn so much more! It is more than shameful what haters are doing to our country and our precious Confederate monuments! Our blood boils at this act of disrespect!! We remain vigilant here in our small town to protect our monuments! Please convey to Mr. Seabrook that we deeply appreciate him telling the world the truth! As they continue to remove our beloved monuments, the only thing we may have left is his book: Confederate Monuments: Why Every American Should Honor Confederate Soldiers and Their Memorials. I will be ordering more copies of this book to give to my brother and sister.” - SANDRA FISH“I read your books. Love Lochlainn Seabrook. Awesome!! - ROBIN HENDERSON ARISTIDES“It’s hard to choose just one of Lochlainn’s books!” - ROSANNE STEELEEBAY REVIEW: “Historian Lochlainn Seabrook is a sensational author promoting truth in a world filled with lies.” - MARTINLUTHER1482“Kudos to Lochlainn Seabrook who is a very good and informative professional truthful historian. We need more like him! I have 8 of his books and want to get more. His book Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe is a great one for kids. I got it for my daughter. Seabrook’s books are very thorough, fully cited works. He does not apologize for the Confederacy or the South. Professionally done. Very good and well researched. This is why here in the North we Copperheads are gaining ground, one Lochlainn Seabrook book at a time!” - AMY VACHON (Maine)“It is not easy to defend the Confederacy nowadays, as the anti-South hatred has been stoked to a degree greater than anytime since reconstruction. It's as if a form of madness has spread across the nation like a plague. The mere display of a Confederate flag results in sharp cries of outrage and anguish, with much posing and posturing by those who would defend us from it. Most Americans don't remotely know or understand what happened in America between 1860 and 1877, the time period that includes Lincoln's war and the reconstruction that came afterwards. However, the Northern version of the history of that time period is largely a lie, a self-serving, massive distortion of what actually happened and why. I have discovered a Southern writer who explains what happened and why, one Lochlainn Seabrook of Sea Raven Press. I just finished his book Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View. Next on my reading list is Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! Both of these books are weighty tomes, 654 pages for the former, 1020 pages for the latter. The book on Lincoln inflamed my feelings against the North, Lincoln and Yankeedom. If I suddenly attained supernatural powers, I would restore the Confederate States of America immediately, then resurrect and hang Lincoln, Sherman, Grant and Sheridan for crimes against humanity. Since I can't do that, I can continue to learn, and to propagate the truth, in the hopes that future generations may go looking for it and someday find it. You should do the same. Check out Sea Raven Press at their website.” - GARY WALTRIPAMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: “The books by Lochlainn Seabrook are so well researched. They tell the truth and the whole truth.” - ANONYMOUS“Lochlainn Seabrook: A stronger defender of the Confederacy and General Nathan Bedford Forrest you will not find.” - TARA FORREST"I believe that Lochlainn Seabrook’s feature film A Rebel Born is going to have a greater impact on patriotism than Mel Gibson’s Braveheart did in 1996." - MARK WAYNE CUNNINGHAM (Kentucky)
