Serial Killers: 101 Interesting Facts And Trivia About Serial Killers

by Jack Rosewood

Thing most terrifying thing about serial killers is that sometimes, they’re just like us, as the interesting facts in this true crime collection reveal.

Even the most diabolical of serial killers was once someone’s child, someone’s spouse, someone’s parent, but somewhere along the line, something happened to send them off the rails on a descent into madness.

Wisconsin serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer would have said he was just lonely, and that’s why 17 young men ended up dead at his hands. Never mind that he carried around a plastic bag to pick up road kill as a child – a huge harbinger of terrible things to come.

The compilation of trivia in this serial killer true crime anthology goes beyond the familiar stories to give you a glimpse of som...

by Wilhelm Grimm and Jacob Grimm

This is the complete and authoritative edition of the folk and fairy tales of the brothers Grimm, with 212 tales, and including the tale of The Starving Children (which was removed after the 1819 edition).THE FOLK & FAIRY TALES OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM (German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen - Vollstämdige Ausgabe) is a collection of German fairy tales first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm. The collection is commonly known in English as Grimm's Fairy Tales. The work of the Brothers Grimm influenced other collectors, both inspiring them to collect tales and leading them to similarly believe, in a spirit of romantic nationalism, that the fairy tales of a country were particularly representative of it, to the neglect of cross-cultural influence. Among those influenced were ...

Columbus Day vs Indigenous Peoples' Day: The Truth Behind the Anti-Columbus Movement

by Rafael

“Anti-Columbus Day activists are using Christopher Columbus as an excuse to demonize American history in general, trusting that most people know little or nothing about Columbus.” This theory by the author was proven right last year, as his first book Christopher Columbus The Hero was been publish. What started as a protest of Columbus Day and statues of Columbus, around August 2017, developed into protests against American heroes like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and others, in addition of claims of racism in our American Anthem, culminating with violence and death in Charlottesville, Virginia. To revisionists, Christopher Columbus is responsible for all this, because, in their view, he is the one who brought slavery, racism, and misery to the New World. The question is, are t...

PILGRIM GIRL (An American Family Book 3)

by J. A. Snow

Long before there was such a thing as "women's liberation" and females serving in the military; long before women had the right to vote and have a say in the policies of government; long before they were permitted to hold political office, there was a small group of Pilgrim women whose strength of character and boldness of heart formed the backbone of America.One such woman was Constance Hopkins, my eleventh generation great grandmother,who came to America in 1620 on the ship Mayflower. Many books have been written, mostly about her childhood, growing up in the little town of Plymouth, Massachusetts that don't describe her as having particularly extraordinary intelligence or of possessing breathtaking beauty, but when Nick Snow first set eyes on her it was the beginning of a lifelong love ...

A Preview to Volume Four of America's Forgotten History: Grotius Rises

by Mark David Ledbetter

The chapters of America's story are marked by momentous events. In 1776, proud inheritors of the Glorious Revolution of 1689 declared both their independence and intention to form a government based on Enlightenment principles. Despite major missteps and contradictions, those living the story mostly stayed true to the project of minimalist government and individual rights until the end of the nineteenth century.After the Spanish-American War, though, with the acquisition of an explicit Pacific empire and the enthusiastic embrace of progressivism, America embarked on a new experiment for the new century, one which valued activist government and equality. If the first experiment lasted one hundred and twenty years, the second experiment, too, is now a hundred and twenty years old and totteri...

How the Stars Aligned in ‘69: Historical Context for the Founding of the P.E.O. Sisterhood

by Sharon S. Atkins

Most P.E.O .literature regarding its founding begins with stories of several of the “seven founders” being invited to join the newly formed I.C. Sorosis society chapter at Iowa Wesleyan. And, such stories tell us how on Thursday, 21 January 1869, Hattie Briggs and Franc Roads decided upon the formation of a “society of our own.” These stories might lead one to believe that the start of the P.E.O. Sisterhood was practically a form of spontaneous combustion!

But, was it really? Could it be that the founding of P.E.O. came about because of seven different pioneering aspects of the historical context of 1869 as much as it did with the seven different women?

Read How the Stars Aligned in ’69 and learn the true story about the beginning of P.E.O....

50 Core American Documents: Required Reading for Students, Teachers, and Citizens

by Christopher Burkett

The Ashbrook Center’s 50 Core American Documents is meant to introduce
readers to America’s story as it has unfolded from the American Founding
into the Twentieth Century. Many of the documents emphasize America’s
uniqueness and contributions to the world, but they also present different
views on some of the major issues and disputes in American history and government,
especially on the meaning of liberty, the injustice of slavery, and the
demands of progress. Taken as such, the documents reveal a kind of political
dialogue to readers, an ongoing and profoundly consequential conversation
about how Americans have agreed and often disagreed on the meaning of
freedom and self-government. 50 Core American Documents invites teachers

An Extensive Bibliography For Understanding The Life Of Malcolm X

His existence is pored over in nearly every facet of American life, spanning from schools, colleges, universities, cultural entities, labor unions, religious bodies, community organizations, political parties to musical rappers. Malcolm is seen to have such meaning, on so many fronts. There are many, who may be unaware of where to go, to seek out literature about him. I have simply put this bibliography together to be a resource to anyone who wishes to know him....

St. Louis' Civil War: The Streetcar Strike of 1900

by Ken Zimmerman Jr.

On Saturday, May 5, 1900 at 11:30 p.m., the explosion of the Suburban Line at the Wabash and Sarah Street railroad crossing marked the beginning of the St. Louis Street Car Strike of 1900. Before the strike was over in September 1900, the streets of St. Louis would be a battle ground between rich and poor with the St. Louis Police Department in the middle of the fray.

Before the strike effectively ended on September 11, 1900, 14 people including a St. Louis Police Officer were killed and hundreds were injured. Was it worth the sacrifice? Are the effects of the strike still felt in the city today? This book answers these questions and more....

Who are the dominant owners of U.S. public debt? Is it widely held, or concentrated in the hands of a few? Does ownership of public debt give these bondholders power over our government?

DUTY: An Epic Novel of West Point and the Civil War (Duty, Honor, Country Book 1)

by Bob Mayer

This is book 1 in the Duty, Honor, Country Trilogy.

“A treat for military fiction readers.” Publishers Weekly

They swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. Classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle. They had friendships, memories, children and wives. They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Duty, Honor, Country is history told both epic and personal so we can understand what happened, but more importantly feel the heart-wrenching clash of duty, honor, country and loyalty. And realize that sometimes, the people who changed history, weren’t recorded by it. In the vein of HBO’s Rome miniseries, two fictional characters, Rumble and Cord are sta...

Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society--Where We've Been, How We Got Here, and Where We Need to Go

It is in this framework that we need to consider our present economic plight and the charting of our path forward.In his penetrating analysis of contemporary society, author John Horvat focuses on the present crisis with great insight and clarity. He claims modern economy has become cold, impersonal, and out of balance. Gone are the human elements of honor and trust so essential to our daily lives. Society has discarded the natural restraining influence of the human institutions and values that should temper our economic activities.Return to Order is a clarion call that invites us to reconnect with those institutions and values by applying the timeless principles of an organic Christian order.
