Family Genealogy Queries: ARNOLD ARENDER ARNETT (Southern Genealogical Research)

by R. Stephen Smith

Are your ancestors in this book?Genealogy queries are a time-honored way for family researchers to share information with others working on the same lines.

Some even include colorful family stories that have been passed down through the years!Many an amateur (or professional) genealogist has been able to fill in blanks on a family tree thanks to the information found in queries such as those reproduced here, which originally appeared in a noted southern (U.S.) query magazine published in the 1990s (now out of print).Contents of this volume include all queries mentioning individuals or families surnamed ARNOLD (26 queries total)...

by Jenness Clark

In the 1960s, twelve-year-old Jenness Clark leaves the troubles of her homelife for her great-grandfather’s farm across the Mississippi River…only to be rocked by more clashing turbulence.Born by the River is Clark’s account of her nine-month trip around the river to visit extended family, all connected by marriage but markedly different in culture, class, and traditions—circumstances certain to provoke discord. A coming-of-age story set in a time and place deeply divided, Clark’s memoir explores her family’s past, referencing the area’s history from 1820 to 1964. The region acts as a conflicted backdrop, threatening the hopes, the dreams, and the American way of life for the author’s family. Alternating in viewpoint between the reflections of the adult Clark as she looks b...

The Park That Was Almost A Hospital: A History of Donner Park

by David Sechrest

This first-ever, detailed history of Columbus, Indiana’s Donner Park tells the story of the park’s early history: How it came to be. From the time it was known as Perry’s Grove, this 14,755 word, 44 page narrative explores the relationship between “small town” growing pains and the need for a public green space. The events uncovered by the author brought about Columbus, Indiana’s Parks & Recreation Department to recognize Donner Park’s founding one year later than previously believed, thus changing the centennial celebration of the park from 2016 to 2017. It also helps clarify who the park was believed to be named for, and just how close today’s Columbus Regional Hospital came to being built on this park property. Donner Park holds the distinction of being the first Columbu...

Dwight Eisenhower: World Wars to the White House

by Luke Johnson

Dwight D Eisenhower is somebody that could get lost in the pages of history if you weren’t paying attention. How that could happen is hard to believe because he was actually an amazing man and leader. Long before he was president, he was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe. Can you imagine the kind of responsibility on his shoulders? And that’s only the beginning of his career. He would later go on to win the office of the US Presidency. Not only that, but there are several things we as the population have now because he initiated its creation. For example, did you know that he was the one who started NASA? He was also responsible for initiating the Interstate Highway Act. Ye...

Two Months On The Eisenhower Campaign: A College Student's Summer Adventure in 1952

by Owen Comora and Cathy Comora

In 1952, my father, Owen Comora, was a journalism/publicity student attending Utica College at Syracuse University, NY. That summer, he was hired by the legendary advertising agency, Young & Rubicam, to work with the "Citizens for Eisenhower" group. He wrote this accounting of his adventure for one of his college classes. He told me he had procrastinated, and had to stay up all night to write this paper the day before it was due. I enjoyed reading it, and I hope you will too! Cathy Comora

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Caroline White 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...

by M. Worboys and A. Homei

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...

The Ninth Amendment: Key to Understanding the Bill of Rights

by Duane L. Ostler

The Ninth Amendment is the key to a proper understanding of rights in the United States. The founders created the Ninth Amendment to protect unlisted natural law rights as they were understood in their day. This amendment was never intended to allow future generations to create new rights. Rather, it was to safeguard the morality and natural rights of the founding generation. Unfortunately this understanding has been lost, and modern judges and scholars usually ignore this amendment, or misinterpret it. Indeed, the Supreme Court has rather strangely created new rights under the 14th Amendment's "due process" clause. This book calls for courts to return to the founders' intent regarding the Ninth Amendment. If they do so, confusion over such issues as abortion and gay marriage will simply d...

The Red Badge of Courage (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

by Stephen Crane

THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE is a war novel by American author Stephen Crane (1871–1900). Taking place during the American Civil War, the story is about a young private of the Union Army, Henry Fleming, who flees from the field of battle. Overcome with shame, he longs for a wound, a "red badge of courage," to counteract his cowardice. When his regiment once again faces the enemy, Henry acts as standard-bearer.Although Crane was born after the war, and had not at the time experienced battle first-hand, the novel is known for its realism. He began writing what would become his second novel in 1893, using various contemporary and written accounts (such as those published previously by Century Magazine) as inspiration. It is believed that he based the fictional battle on that of Chancellorsville...

The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself

by Josiah Henson

Josiah Henson (June 15, 1789 – May 5, 1883) was an author, abolitionist, and minister. Born into slavery in Charles County, Maryland, he escaped to Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborer's school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden in Kent County. Henson's autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself (1849), is widely believed to have inspired the character of the fugitive slave, George Harris, in Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852)....
