This is the beginning of the trajectory of the protagonists of this story. This part of the plot is composed by phase 1, which narrates about the childhood of Jerry Carpenter and his friends, and by phase 2, which narrates about the youth of the characters. Throughout all events, the Confederate spirit hangs in the air, and some of these events are signs of an impending revolution; others are causes of this revolution.Synopsis: XXI century. Almost two centuries after the American Civil War, there is a growing movement in the southern United States: A patriotic movement of Confederate consciousness. Jerry Carpenter, a resident of a small town in the State of Florida, grows through all of this. From childhood, he reveals his vocation to lead. His purpose is to meet the need of all, as one. Among his childhood friends are his great and faithful friend Jason Peterson and Jason's sister: Ellen, whom Jerry falls in love with. Throughout his life, Carpenter faces human losses, amorous delusions and disagreements with friends, but he also has the support and admiration of many people. Supported by Jason (although the two join different parties), Carpenter becomes an eloquent politician. To achieve his goals, he must count on the help of his faithful "friends and allies" of childhood and adolescence. But his projects go against the goals of the Federal Government, whose ally is rightfully his great friend Jason. Supported by southern society, he becomes a keystone in the process that, at its climax, will result in the second secession of the southern states. Now his best friend is also his enemy in this war that the American president has declared against the rebels. Chased by the FBI and the CIA, Carpenter and his "friends and allies" will have their biggest confrontation with the Federal Government. Romance, drama, action, comedy, nostalgia, politics and war strategy make up the story of a man whose goal is the well-being of society

A riveting narrative of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, an act which revolutionized the U.S. constitution and shaped the nation's destiny in the wake of the Civil War Though the end of the Civil War and Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation inspired optimism for a new, happier reality for blacks, in truth the battle for equal rights was just beginning. Andrew Johnson, Lincoln's successor, argued that the federal government could not abolish slavery. In Johnson's America, there would be no black voting, no civil rights for blacks. When a handful of men and women rose to challenge Johnson, the stage was set for a bruising constitutional battle. Garrett Epps, a novelist and constitutional scholar, takes the reader inside the halls of the Thirty-ninth Congress to witness the dramatic story of the Fourteenth Amendment's creation. At the book's center are a cast of characters every bit as fascinating as the Founding Fathers. Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, among others, understood that only with the votes of freed blacks could the American Republic be saved. Democracy Reborn offers an engrossing account of a definitive turning point in our nation's history and the significant legislation that reclaimed the democratic ideal of equal rights for all U.S. citizens.

This work analyzes race/ethnic-specific Gentile and Semite rationalizations of anti-Black race values as no vice and nothing but a virtue of necessity, and examines the future power and consequences of these color/caste-class moral certainties. The author evaluates these Old/New Right realities produced by sacred and secular realists and pragmatists and promoted in the civil sector as national virtues. Beginning with governor John Winthrop and his theologian John Cotton, and ending with Ronald Reagan and his theologian Jerry Falwell, Washington explores the historic and current relevance of these two varieties of Evangelical Calvinist Moral Majority types and their relation to the conflict or competition between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, Lyndon and Andrew Johnson, and Andrew and Jesse Jackson, as the background for an in-depth examination of the Jesse Jackson presidential candidacy.
