I Wish I Had Never Been Born: Rediscovering Abraham Lincoln

by Nicholas L Vulich

July 21st, 1861. Bull Run, Virginia.

It was a fine day for a battle. Hundreds of spectators from Washington took the day off to tag after the army. They came in buggies and on horseback, riding seven long hours in the hot Virginia sun. Mostly men, a few women, a host of politicians – among them Ohio Senator Ben Wade, New York Congressman Alfred Ely, and Illinois Congressman Elihu Washburne.

English war correspondent William Howard Russell reported, “The spectators were all excited, and a lady with an opera glass who was quite beside herself when an unusually heavy discharge roused the current of her blood…’that is splendid, oh my, is not that first rate? I guess we will be in Richmond to-morrow,’ she exclaimed.” An officer told them, “We are whippin...

An Honorable Confederate Soldier

by Matthew K. Rye

It has been said that one should never forget where he or she comes from. For the wealthy Mississippi businessman known as the Captain, his pride is anchored in the tales his father and grandfather told him of his ancestor’s service to the Confederate army during the Civil War. The Captain spends his days overseeing the successful business his family built while entertaining the upper crust of Southern society by night. His lack of empathy for others, especially his housekeeper, makes him a difficult man for those in his employ to admire. When he and his hunting party venture into the woods surrounding his inherited plantation home, he is forced to face the ghosts of his past, atone for his own sins, and learn the price a man must be willing to pay for what he believes.

The War of 1812 ended, and the border status with Canada grew somewhat more settled. Turning its efforts toward the taming of an unwelcoming West, the young country faced new and less well-understood enemies. These included a vast array of indigenous Native American tribes, a general lawlessness roaming free from an absence of social protections, and Mexico’s historical claims on a large swath of the westernmost portions of the continent. The contested ownership of Texas produced hostility over the following ...

American Magdalene: The Redemption of Belle Brezing

by Doug Tattershall

When author Margaret Mitchell needed a hardscrabble woman to serve as confidante to Rhett Butler, her husband told her about Belle Brezing, a Victorian madam of a famous brothel in Lexington, Kentucky. Brezing entered Mitchell’s novel as Belle Watling, but the real Belle’s life story is as dramatic as anything to be found in the pages of "Gone With the Wind." Brezing was born illegitimate, raised in poverty in a violent home, and cast off at 15 after her mother's funeral, with a baby in her arms and her door padlocked by the landlord. From this desperate childhood, Brezing became rich and famous, operating what Time magazine called the "most orderly of disorderly houses." The city's famous horse racing meets helped make her brothel known nationwide, but behind her success was a determi...

Hero Tales From American History –The Great Men Who Gave Their Lives to the Service of Their Fellow-Countrymen: George Washington, Daniel Boone, Francis ... Cushing, Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg,

by Theodore Roosevelt and Henry Cabot Lodge

It is crucial for all Americans, and especially for the American youth, to remember and honor the men who have given their lives in war and peace to the service of their fellow-countrymen, and to keep in mind the feats of daring and personal prowess done in time past by some of the many champions of the nation in the various crises of her history. Thrift, industry, obedience to law, and intellectual cultivation are essential qualities in the makeup of any successful nation; but no nation can be really great unless it possesses also the heroic virtues which are as needful in time of peace as in time of war, and as important in civil as in military life.Contents: George WashingtonDaniel Boone and the Founding of KentuckyGeorge Rogers Clark and the Conquest of the NorthwestThe Battle of Trent...

Theodore Roosevelt's Letters to His Children: Touching and Emotional Correspondence of the Former President with Alice, Theodore III, Kermit, Ethel, Archibald, ... Their Early Childhood Until Their Ad

by Theodore Roosevelt and Joseph Bucklin Bishop

Most of the letters in this book were written by Theodore Roosevelt to his children during a period of more than twenty years. A few others are included which he wrote to friends or relatives about the children. He began to write to them in their early childhood, and continued to do so regularly till they reached maturity. Whenever he was separated from them, in the Spanish War, or on a hunting trip, or because they were at school, he sent them these messages of constant thought and love, for they were never for a moment out of his mind and heart. Long before they were able to read he sent them what they called "picture letters," with crude drawings of his own illustrations of the written text, drawings precisely adapted to the childish imagination and intelligence.

Battlelines: Road to Gettysburg: Civil War Combat Artists and the Pictures They Drew

What did a battle during the Civil War look like?We have no photographs of Civil War battles because photography had no advanced to where it could stop that kind of action.But we can get a good idea of what the battles were like from the courageous -- and sometimes reckless -- combat artists from contemporary publications who took to the field and attached themselves to the armies.Sadly, the work of these men has been largely ignored. Happily, many of their original drawings still exist.This series of the work of the Civil War combat artists will show you scenes, places and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Michael A. Estrada and MiSoon Burzlaff

There are moments in time when a word or thought has such power it changes history; a generation so involved in the moment it becomes unstoppable; a spiritual awakening so profound that its very conception shatters perceptions, halts the world and makes people from all nations take notice. And for Berkeley, this moment can be traced to the 1960s. The Summer of Love 1967, centered in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, turned Berkeley into the epicenter of the counterculture movement. It was a tumultuous and often violent period marked by the origins of the Free Speech Movement beginning with the May 1960 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings at San Francisco City Hall, the emergence of the counterculture, the anti-war protests, the rise of the Women’s Movement, and endin...

Fungal Disease in Britain and the United States 1850-2000: Mycoses and Modernity (Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History)

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...
