We Who Dared to Say No to War: American Antiwar Writing from 1812 to Now


A conservative and a liberal staff as much as draw upon old writing to bare a large spectrum of antiwar opinion in American heritage.

Antiwar Patriots brings jointly the various greatest--if mostly forgotten--writings of the yank antiwar culture, from the struggle of 1812 to the current. Featured is Daniel Webster, one in all America's nice orators, denouncing army conscription in 1814 as unconstitutional and immoral, years after Congress and President James Madison joined forces to claim battle opposed to nice Britain and its Canadian colony. The authors' therapy of the Mexican struggle contains a forgotten antiwar speech by way of Abraham Lincoln, in addition to the senate's censure of President James Polk for having introduced a warfare lower than fake pretenses, and early protests by way of the war's rivals out of worry that it can aid extend slavery.
