Myths Realities of American Slavery: The True History of Slavery in America ebook

by John C. Perry


John C. Perry was born in Atlanta, Georgia. It is very easy to read, I finished it in just a couple of sittings.

John C. Perry received a bachelor’s degree in history and taught history in public schools before beginning a successful business career. He continued to study American history throughout his life and wrote about it with a strong emphasis on both the War Between the States and the pre-war years. The book does start off a little slow, but the last two-thirds of the book is great.

Perry talked about his book Myths and Realities of American Slavery: The True History of Slavery in America, published by Pelican Publishing Company, and discussed what led him to write the book. He argued that slavery was not as integral a part of the reason behind the Civil War as history leads people to believe. Mr. Perry wrote that the Confederacy went to war seeking independence while the Union fought to keep the country together. The book included facts and figures about slavery, excerpts from old interviews with former slaves, and includes a segment on the Civil War and slavery.

Four myths about slavery . Myth One: The majority of African captives came to what became the United States. Truth: Only a little more than 300,000 captives, or 4-6 percent, came to the United States. The majority of enslaved Africans went to Brazil, followed by the Caribbean. They spent months or years recovering from the harsh realities of the Middle Passage. Slavery is part and parcel of American popular culture, but for 40 years the television miniseries Roots was the primary visual representation of the institution, except for a handful of independent (and not widely known) films such as Haile Gerima’s Sankofa or the Brazilian Quilombo.

Every time someone writes a book on the War Between the States, Slavery, or Reconstruction, which does not follow the mindless obligatory mantras chanted by the so-called, "academic community", the weevils come'a crawlin out of the woodwork a-whinin' and a-complainin' and a-wringin' their silly little hands. To all you weevils - sit down and shut up already, you're giving a headache to those of us who are seriously interested in understanding the people of the past and their world.

The author does not need to "reveal" his associations or politics, any more than so-called modern day Hysterians, ooops, I mean "Historians", need to reveal their political leanings, which we all know are somewhere to the left of Karl Marx.

If you have purchased this book and are perplexed or disappointed, then try following up on some of many sources that the author provides. A lot of research went into this book and the sources are all there!

If you haven't purchased this book and are genuinely interested in this topic, buy it, but don't stop there....keep going.

Better yet, get yourself a copy of the UNEDITED version of the Slave Narratives and see for yourself that, as one former slave put it, "back then, dey'z jus like dey is today, dey wuz good people, an' dey wuz bad people...."

Some things never change, I guess....

This is a book that is filled with facts that are easy to check because of the abundance of foot notes. It will certainly arouse the ire of the Lincoln worshiping, South hating, Politically correct folks.
Some will say he leaves out a great many facts. This is true of just about all books on any subject but Mr. Perry includes enough to upset the generally accepted ideas held by a great many Americans.
We have been saturated for so long with so much propaganda. After all the victors always write the history books. It is refreshing to read a book that is primarily a collection of often overlooked facts.
I have learned much from Mr. Perry's writing.

I read quite a number of books on the Civil War, and American History. This book, is perhaps one of the best books I've read in months. It was very hard to put down, without finishing it. The author discusses the emotional topic of Slavery, it's orgins, the myths in media, legend and tales, as well as facts. John Perry uses very detailed and documented sources, including the 1860 census, even breaking it down to age, region, city and state. Too often people tend to discuss slavery, with nothing but emotional feelings, often incorrect.
A copy of this book, should belong in every city, and school libary. (I personally bought a second copy, after reading mine, to donate to our local library.)
I can only give this book 5 stars, as that is all that is allowed, but it deserves more. Mr. Perry has written an excellent book. I honestly can not see how anyone could read this book, and not enjoy it. Every serious student of American History, the Civil War, or even the issue of 'racial problems' in America, should read this. ( As well as the person that just wants an engrossing book to read, curled up in a chair)
I LOVED THIS BOOK.

This is a very interesting book, one that I really enjoyed. It is a very well researched history of slavery in America. It is very easy to read, I finished it in just a couple of sittings. The book does start off a little slow, but the last two-thirds of the book is great. It gives an incredible amount of information about slavery, with lots of footnotes. I learned much, many facts that I didn't know and it exposed a number of myths about slavery. I liked the use of quotes from many former slaves that talked about their lives as slaves. The book has an excellent chapter on the Civil War. It has the best explanation of the causes of the Civil War that I have ever seen, and no it wasn't just slavery. The author clearly explains how the war started, very well done. It also has 30 or so fact boxes that bring out some rarely known facts about slavery. This is a very good book and is a must on the shelf of any Civil War buff or student of American History or African-American studies. A must read!

This is a very well researched book. Some do not like the book's conclusions, so they attack the author. But what the author has done is provided readers with a very well documented account of slavery in the U.S.

I found very little personal opinion in the book, rather the book is based on historical facts. Have a question about something in the book, simply check the footnotes, there are hundreds of them.

For those who want the facts and not political correctness, get this book!
