About Gib

Gib Kerr is a businessman, historian, writer, commentator, and patriot from Flyover Country whose diverse background provides him with a unique, well-rounded perspective on past, present, and future events.

Guided by the notion that the past is prologue, Kerr’s writing explores history and how history not only shapes modern culture, but also offers clues about what lies ahead. Or as his fellow Missourian Mark Twain reportedly said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” Kerr is particularly interested in the American Revolution and the Civil War—along with the frightening parallels between those times and the growing tensions in 21st century America.

Kerr’s first book, States of Rebellion, is a work of political fiction that artfully weaves history into the storyline. Citing examples of impactful fiction such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin, 1984, and The Gulag Archipelago, Kerr believes that fiction is often the best way to illuminate the truth. States of Rebellion imagines a future constitutional crisis in America, where red state patriots rise up against a modern-day domestic axis of evil consisting of Big Tech, the Deep State, and Marxists.

Kerr’s second book, Un-Cancel Robert E. Lee, An Open Letter to the Trustees of Washington and Lee University, is the nearly forgotten story of a great American hero who has been unfairly targeted by woke cancel culture. And it is a call to restore Lee to his rightful place of honor, beginning with his  final resting place on the campus of W&L.

Kerr is a graduate of Washington & Lee University (BA) and the University of Virginia (MBA). He has raised four children and is the grandfather of five (and counting). He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
