From tax rebels to religious dissidents, it's amazing that the United States of America haven't fallen apart, though it has not been for lack of trying. While the Confederate States of America is the best-known secessionist movement in our history, the South is far from the only example of Americans' declaring independence from Washington DC and the federal government. From runaway slaves to religious visionaries, from Native Americans to tax-shelter seeking wealthy, the quest for political, religious, and economic independence has been a constant force in our country over the centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Most events related by Erwin are seldom, if ever, taught in history classes. His research allows readers and now you know the rest of the story ^D'a la Paul Harvey....[a]n intriguing subject." - VOYA
"This encyclopedia contains entries on nationalist, secessionist, and autonomist movements in the US that occurred since the beginning of the American Revolution. Entries are organized alphabetically and consist of geographic regions and movements, with background history as part of the discussion. These include Mormonism, the Republic of New Afrika, the Dakota, the Cherokee Nation, the South, and some US states and regions within them. Movements that did not aim to secure political independence as a nation or state are excluded, in addition to Amish and communal movements or those at the local level. Most Native American movements are also omitted." - Reference & Research Book News
