Beautiful Minds explains how and why apes and dolphins are so distantly related yet so cognitively alike and what this teaches us about another large-brained mammal: Homo sapiens. Noting that apes and dolphins have had no common ancestor in nearly 100 million years, Bearzi and Stanford describe the parallel evolution that gave rise to their intelligence.

The original, hand-stitched silk flag with gold-painted stars was designed for the Confederate Army of the Potomac after the first battle of Manassas. It was created as a military necessity, without the authority or knowledge of the Confederate government-however, it filled a dire need. Gens. P. G. T. Beauregard and Joseph E. Johnston recognized that Confederate units needed to have an identifiable banner to unite them on the battlefield. A sketch of this flag design was provided to Mary Lyon Jones of Richmond, Virginia, who stitched the first Confederate battle flag. The original battle flag of the Confederate Armed Forces, incorporating the heraldic St. Andrew's Cross, remains a symbol of southern strength and resilience to this day. This fascinating account outlines the history of the design and creation of the flag that became the prototype for the iconic banner. Complete with more than fifty rare and previously unpublished photographs, author Kent Masterson Brown delivers a detailed history of the flag, including the generals and seamstresses who were instrumental in bringing the battle flag to life.

Is the Confederate Battle Flag truly a symbol of "hatred, racism, and slavery," as Liberals maintain? Of course not. It's the opposite: it's a symbol of Christian love, universal brotherhood, and freedom, but they don't want you to know that! More importantly it's a sacred emblem of Southern heritage, history, and honor, one that every traditional Southerner is rightfully proud of. In "Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross," award-winning Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook corrects the many falsehoods fabricated by the anti-South movement about the South's most famous ensign: the Starry Cross (the Confederate Battle Flag). In the process, he provides the true history of the Confederate States of America and its three official flags: the Stars and Bars (the First National), the Stainless Banner (the Second National), and the Blood-Stained Banner (the Third National). We learn why the C.S.A. patterned itself on the original U.S.A. (which was known as "the Confederate States of America"), even copying her Constitution and flag, all in an effort to preserve the confederate republic of the American Founding Fathers. In debunking the many myths and lies invented by Liberals about the Confederate Flag, a wide range of pertinent topics are covered concerning Lincoln's War, including secession, slavery, and abolition. Special attention is paid to Dixie's brave "boys in gray," the Confederate soldier, a unique breed of warrior who was represented by every race. Mr. Seabrook backs up his in-depth research with numerous eyewitness accounts, both from the Confederacy and the Union. This generously illustrated work, complete with endnotes, an index, and a bibliography, is jam-packed with little known facts about the South and her flags, making it a powerful educational tool. Not just for beginners and enemies of the South, but for seasoned Civil War buffs and writers as well. Pick up your copy of the most informative guide ever written on the Confederate Flag. Give it out to unenlightened friends, neighbors, educators, journalists, and politicians, and help combat the Left's contrived, malicious, and historically inaccurate war on the South and her symbols. Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 45 books. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Mr. Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the runaway bestseller "Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!" Seabrook's other titles include: "Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!"; "The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn't Want You to Know About Lincoln's War"; "Give This Book to a Yankee: A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners"; "Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition"; "Slavery 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's 'Peculiar Institution'"; "A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest"; "Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War"; "The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln: The President's Quote They Don't Want You to Know!"; "The Quotable Stonewall Jackson"; "The Alexander H. Stephens Reader"; "The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained"; and "The Old Rebel: Robert E. Lee As He Was Seen By His Contemporaries."
