Tippecanoe And Colby Too: The Murder Of A CIA Director

by Dov Ivry

This excerpt is found in the first chapter.In the course of going over the highlights of the long criminal careers of the Clintons in the post-mortem (that I did on the election) I came to the Arkancides. Prior to becoming president, of course, Bill Clinton had been governor of Arkansas. “Arkancides” was the name given to cover a whole list of people who came into the purview of the Clintons there and while he was president and whose lives had ended suddenly. I did not have the tools, access to facts, nor the time to go digging into these deaths to find which, if any, were foul play. But one name on the list jumped out at me, William Colby.In 2015 I had done a book on the JFK assassination. A few weeks after the assassination Harry Truman, the former president, made a declaration that ...

Spanish American War: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Spanish-American War
“A splendid little war “- that’s how one contemporary observer described the Spanish-American War, a war that is arguably one of the most important wars ever fought. The duration was short and the victory decisive, thus little and splendid, the latter, at least, from the victor’s point of view. The impacts of the war, however, were anything but little. In fact, the aftermath of the Spanish-American War is still affecting global affairs today. The dominant superpowers of 1898 watched as a new player on the international scene, the United States, shifted its ideology from isolationism to expansionism, and emerged as a force to reckoned with, a true superpower.

THE GODLESS MEN

by Matt Cutugno

In the classic American Western-style, veteran author Matt Cutugno weaves a riveting story of two men struggling to survive in the days following the Civil War in his new novel, THE GODLESS MEN. The time is 1868. Three short years after the awful destruction caused by the war. The place is the Kansas-Missouri border. A land savaged by years of bloody fighting.

Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible...

Killing America: A 100 Year Murder: Forty Historical Wounds That Bill O'Reilly Didn't Write About

by King, M

***50 Page Illustrated Booklet***
By now, most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, have come to realize that something is not quite right in America. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you sense it instinctively.

How can you not sense it? For the first time ever, both the majority of the younger and the older generations of America now believe that future generations will not be as prosperous as their parents’ generation was. And that’s only the economic pessimism. On the social and cultural fronts, how many of us can truly say that we are proud are what our society has degenerated to?

Make no mistake; the America we once knew has indeed been murdered. How did we arrive at this point of perpetual debt, perpetual inflation,...

Shootout on Pine Street: The Illinois Central Train Robbery and Aftermath

by Ken Zimmerman Jr. and Tamara Zimmerman

The Shootout on Pine Street had its origins in an Illinois train robbery on July 1, 1904. Harry Vaughn, William Morris and Albert Rosenaur carried out the vicious robbery before making their way to St. Louis.

St. Louis was hosting the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition commonly called the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The Fair brought millions of visitors to St. Louis, leading the crafty Vaughn to surmise it would be the perfect place to hide out. Vaughn’s decision would put him squarely up against St. Louis Chief of Detectives William Desmond and his able group of detectives.

The result would be the deadliest shootout in St. Louis Police history followed by one of the most brazen prison breaks in Missouri history. This book examines the parallel career...

Besides hampering the Continental Army, the inability of the national government to raise revenue made foreign policy difficult. Under the Articles of Confederation, the Congress was also completely unable to pay any of the debts it incurred to foreign powers during...

Don't like history? You're probably reading the wrong books.Read this book, and you're gonna think, wow! Why didn't somebody tell me that? American history is full of strange paradoxes, and that's what makes it so interesting.The truth is much of what we learn about history is a series of little white lies that over time have grown into tall tales.Why doesn't everyone know the Boston Massacre wasn't really a massacre? Subsequent testimony proved the soldiers fired in self-defense. The King Street riot was started by a group of four street thugs who got their rocks off attacking lone British soldiers. Sam Adams and Paul Revere twisted it into a massacre. And, if you think the Boston Tea Party was a response to British taxes that raised the price of tea in the colonies, think again. The Tea ...
