Stupid History 25 January 2010

The Emancipation Proclamation, issued by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, proposed freeing slaves in the Southern states only--it didn't mention ending slavery in the North. Actually, the Proclamation didn't free anyone, as the South had already seceded, and Lincoln had no authority over it. Slavery was abolished with the passing of the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, which was ratified in the latter part of 1865.

buy my books and comics!

If you would like an autographed copy of one my books or comic books, but can't get to a convention that I'm attending, I'm now making it easy on you. You can get any of the books listed below just by buying them from me via PayPal (payments would go to keith at decandido dot net) at cover price or less (see list below), and I'll send the book(s) to you. I'm not charging for shipping with two exceptions:
    1. If you're outside the United States, send me the book price, and I'll bill you after I ship them for the shipping cost.
    2. If you're buying three or fewer comic books, then please add $4.00 for shipping (if you buy four or more, then shipping is free).

If you want the book inscribed, please tell me who to inscribe it to -- and if you don't want it inscribed (or don't want it autographed) let me know. You also need to provide a shipping address, obviously....

If you have any questions, comment here or e-mail me at keith at decandido dot net.
