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

by W. E. B. Du Bois

First published in 1903, this groundbreaking work is a cornerstone of African American literary history and a foundational text in the field of sociology. In these fourteen essays, W. E. B.

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and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the...

No Diplomacy

by Andrew Lafleche

Everybody writes a hero story. Publicists describe them as gritty. Their authors undoubtedly write in standard form and recycled words: “Nothing could have prepared me for what happened next…”No Diplomacy bucks this trend.Unlike anything previously published, No Diplomacy is the antithesis to a superhero story. It’s one you can’t unread.Narrated with the cynicism of an infantry soldier and provoked by the ubiquitous question, “Have you ever killed someone?” No Diplomacy delivers an explicit documentation of a soldier’s experience in combat, that once you start, you will not put it down until it’s finished.Written by a former Canadian infantry soldier, the direct language used in this first person narrative subjects the reader to an uncomfortably vulnerable account of ev...

Closing With the Enemy

by Aaron Elson

Ed Hays of Paramus, N.J., was a 19-year-old tail gunner on a B-17 named Just Elmer's Tune. His pilot was Lt. Elmer Costales, and the plane's name was taken from a popular Glenn Miller song. On its 12 1/2th mission -- did we say anyone was superstitious? -- Just Elmer's Tune was shot down over Denmark. As it was the only American bomber shot down over Denmark that day, Fritz Ulrich, the son of the farmer in whose field Hays landed, was able through rigorous research to locate the German fighter pilot who claimed credit for the kill, and who in turn was shot down by gunners from Hays' plane. Hays and the German pilot, Gunther Sinnecker, met in Berlin in 1998. Hays was active in the American ex-POWs and was a popular speaker in New Jersey schools until his death in 2007.

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...
