Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Details Jewish participation on the Civil War battlefield and throughout the Southern home front In The Jewish Confederates, Robert N. Rosen introduces readers to the community of Southern Jews of the 1860s, revealing the remarkable breadth of Southern Jewry's participation in the war and their commitment to the Confederacy. Intrigued by the apparent irony of their story, Rosen weaves a complex chronicle that outlines how Southern Jews—many of them recently arrived immigrants from Bavaria, Prussia, Hungary, and Russia who had fled European revolutions and anti-Semitic governments—attempted to navigate the fraught landscape of the American Civil War. This chronicle relates the experiences of officers, enlisted men, businessmen, politicians, nurses, rabbis, and doctors. Rosen recounts the careers of important Jewish Confederates; namely, Judah P. Benjamin, a member of Jefferson Davis's cabinet; Col. Abraham C. Myers, quartermaster general of the Confederacy; Maj. Adolph Proskauer of the 125th Alabama; Maj. Alexander Hart of the Louisiana 5th; and Phoebe Levy Pember, the matron of Richmond's Chimborazo Hospital. He narrates the adventures and careers of Jewish officers and profiles the many Jewish soldiers who fought in infantry, cavalry, and artillery units in every major campaign.

In the South, after a two-thousand year exile the Jews once again fought as a people for freedom and equality. Read about the four Jews in Jefferson Davis cabinet. Read about the Jewish military leaders and soldiers. Read about those, the remnant of the ones murdered, burned at the stake, forced to convert, and how they came into their own in the antebellum South.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One of the South's most urgent priorities in the Civil War was obtaining the recognition of foreign governments. Edwin De Leon, a Confederate propagandist charged with wooing Britain and France, opens up this vital dimension of the war in the earliest known account by a Confederate foreign agent. First published in the New York Citizen in 1867-68, De Leon's memoir subsequently sank out of sight until its recent rediscovery by William C. Davis, one of the Civil War field's true luminaries. Both reflective and engaging, it brims with insights and immediacy lacking in other works, covering everything from the diplomatic impact of the Battle of Bull Run to the candid opinions of Lord Palmerston to the progress of secret negotiations at Vichy. De Leon discusses, among other things, the strong stand against slavery by the French and a frustrating policy of inaction by the British, as well as the troubling perceptions of some Europeans that the Confederacy was located in South America and that most Americans were a cross between Davy Crockett and Sam Slick. With France's recognition a priority, De Leon published pamphlets and used French journals in a futile attempt to sway popular opinion and pressure the government of Napoleon III. His interpretation of the latter's meeting with Confederate diplomat John Slidell and the eventual mediation proposal sheds new light on that signal event. De Leon was a keen observer and a bit of a gossip, and his opinionated details and character portraits help shed light on the dark crevices of the South's doomed diplomatic efforts and provide our only inside look at the workings of Napoleon's court and Parliament regarding the Confederate cause. Davis adds an illuminating introduction that places De Leon's career in historical context, reveals much about his propagandist strategies, and traces the history of the Secret History itself. Together they open up a provocative new window on the Civil War.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Jewish Combatants in the Wars of Early America In this book each Chapter describes and discusses a different Jewish man who volunteered for duty in the American Armed Forces of the Revolutionary War and later in the forces of the United States of America. The book is in chronological order starting with men who fought in the Revolutionary War and ending with those who fought in the Civil War. However, the Jewish presence in North America was present earlier, in the Colonial Period. Whether it is coincidence or not, the year 1492 was the year that Columbus sailed from Spain to discover the American continent and was also the year the Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain started the infamous Spanish Inquisition. The Inquisition decried that all heretics: Jews, Moslems, and Protestant Christians were to be burnt at the stake. Although many Jews left Spain to avoid conversion, many accepted Christianity and were labeled by the Spaniards, Marrenos, or New Christians. There is much speculation that some of the crew of Columbus were Jews or Marranos. At any rate the New World attracted many Jews and Marranos in an effort to escape the Inquisition. So many of them settled in the Islands of the Caribbean Sea and the surrounding Continental countries that they called themselves The Nation. When the Dutch obtained their freedom from Spain, religious tolerance was proclaimed. Many Jews migrated there and prospered. What they looked like can be seen in the paintings by Rembrant. One family, the Salvadors, were among the founders of the Dutch West India Company and later forced the Governor of New Amsterdam, now New York, Peter Styuvsant, to admit three Jewish families from the Caribbean to settle in New Amsterdam. The first chapter of this book is devoted to a descendent of the Salvadors, named Francis, who was scalped in line of duty during the Revolutionary War. Despite much discrimination, one of the men discussed, Captain Uriah Phillips Levy, influenced American history in two ways. Primarily, he was a leader in the successful effort to stop flogging of sailors in the United States Navy. The other was that Captain Levy bought Monticello, the home of President Thomas Jefferson, after the President had died and Monticello had fallen in ruins. The mother of Captain Levy is buried in Monticello. As already mentioned, the earliest Jewish migration to what is now the United States was from the Caribbean area. These Sephardic Jews settled in the Southern areas, the Colonies of the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia. Centuries later, when the Civil War began in the United States these Jewish families were Confederates. Their lives and their relationship to the post-Civil War Reconstruction period is discussed. As the records of all of these individuals and their families are not available, this book is not an encyclopedia of all the Jewish men who fought for their country in it's early Wars. I'm sure many important men were omitted. Perhaps as data becomes available others will be described. At the present, it is hoped that this volume will bring attention to the sacrifices that Jewish men made to the beginnings of the United States of America.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why The Books of I & II Maccabees Is Important: Interestingly, most people may not know where to find the account of the magnificent Hanukkah story. Hanukkah or "Chanukah" is an annual Jewish celebration in the late fall/early winter that dates back to circa 164 BC (or the intertestamental period - between the Old and New Testaments) and was also referred to as "Festival of Lights" or "Feast of the Dedication" or "Feast of the Maccabees." So where can one find it? It is found in the Apocrypha (meaning "hidden things") in I & II Maccabees (1 Macc 4:36-59; 2 Macc 10:1-8). This book is an excerpt from the Apocrypha and it this story to you so you may have it in either e-book, printed book, audio-book or all of the above.Highlights of the Original Event:* The Seleucid king Antiochus Ephiphanes profaned the Jewish temple by sacrificing a pig to the god Zeus.* This caused the Jews to have to leave their worship of the one true God and His required sacrifices and they were supposedly to take on Antiochus' occult rituals. * A group of Jewish confederates (Maccabees) emerged, lashed-out, and defeated the Seleucids! God gave them the victory - labeled "a miracle." This was eerily similar to the 6 Day war in 1967 where that victory was declared a miracle as tiny Israel was out-manned and out-resourced)!* When the Maccabees returned to Jerusalem to take it back over, they entered the Temple to rid it of the idols that the Syrians had set up.* They built a new alter, but the golden menorah had been stolen by the Syrians, so the Maccabean fighters made one of a lesser metal. * When they went to light it, they found only enough lamp oil for one day, but it stayed light for eight days...another miracle!Find all of this story and the details surrounding them in "The Books of I & II Macabees - Where The Story of Hanukkah Is Found"
