Was the Civil War predicted years in advanced, or planned years in advance?

Predictions of Civil War: The Mysterious Book of 1836, a Tale of Division and Deception


America’s history hasn’t always been peaceful. In the chasms of America's history, there lies a cataclysmic event that tore at the very fabric of the nation - the Civil War. With an estimated 620,000 to 750,000 soldiers dead, it claimed approximately 2% of the population at the time, making it the most destructive war in US history.


The landscape of the South was marred by significant property damage, as plantations, farms, and cities were reduced to ruins. Businesses, particularly in the South, were devastated due to the destruction of infrastructure and disruption of trade. The total number of casualties, including those wounded or missing, soared to an estimated 1.5 million.


The economic impact was colossal - the cost of the war was about $6.6 billion in 1860 dollars, equivalent to roughly $75 billion today. This staggering figure does not even account for the long-term economic consequences; the devastation of the South, the lost labor force due to emancipation, and the ongoing cost of veterans' pensions. This was a war that seared a painful legacy.


Yet it was predicted years in advance. In the annals of American history, there lies an intriguing story from the year 1836. It revolves around a book, one that was clandestinely printed in the heart of our nation's capital, Washington DC. This book was not just any ordinary piece of literature. It held claims that were disconcerting and, to some, alarming.



The book argued that the divisions being witnessed in the country were not accidental or organic. They were, in fact, part of a deliberate strategy, a secret plot that had been in operation for three decades. This plot, it claimed, was a resistance against the overreaching powers of the centralized federal government.

The claim of the book was that this plot would lead to a Civil War and it even described a possible scenario. Although the details and timing were off, many of the precursors to the American Civil War were predicted in the book.


This claim brings up another question, what is the origin of the book? Why was it written? It could very well have been created to initiate the very claims it predicted.

The book's main theme revolved around the figure of a partisan leader, a powerful symbol of opposition and rebellion. This figure, a personification of division and discord, was painted as a hero, fighting against a perceived tyranny. Yet, it's this very concept of a partisan leader, and the polarization they can engender, that we must scrutinize.


Logically the book blames the partisan leader. Its the same as saying we have a problem with division. But the division isn’t the problem it’s a symptom of the problem. Underneath there’s an argument. The same argument laid out in the book remains today. Some of the very same issues that were being fought about then are arguments that have never really been resolved.


Why would anyone care about this? Lets go back to the question: Were the origins and purpose of the book merely predictive or were they part of a plan? This question, although unsettling, is crucial in understanding the American Civil War. The notion of the Civil War being premeditated raises the alarming possibility of history repeating itself. Could such divisive strategies be employed once again?
