Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Abraham Lincoln: In the belly of the beast

by Mark Steinberg

The New World. Popular conceptions of colonists in a reduced role spread. Heated debates and pamphleteers ignited the spirits of the underrepresented as various European powers involved the colonies in attempts to dominate North America. A brand of civilized order was brought to the chaos found in the colonial wilderness. Without the trouble that eighteenth century Europe faced, a new ordered world along European lines could glorify its past in bringing its best self back to life. The revolutionary generation would come to question this early colonial order. As Franklin, Washington, and Hamilton would learn, attempts to forge a unique identity would become inevitable. With it came high risks that they were reluctant to take. They would eventually help carry the New World from colonial stat...

Sugar, Stamps & Tea: The Objects That Made America (Bite Sized History Book 1)

by Marty Griffin and Lauren Tokarewich

Most people think of history as a subject they were forced to attend in school or some old guy with wooden teeth and a bad wig. There’s stories about governments passing laws and people making grand speeches, but people don’t really have a connection with that nowadays.When you think back to the American Revolution you’re probably not making connections to an episode of Dr. Who that you saw, or how America was like the little brother that got stuck with all the strict rules just because we moved away.History is more than a series of important dates or dry facts that you were forced to memorize for school. With funny anecdotes, witty comparisons, and creative metaphors, Sugar, Stamps & Tea puts the 50 most important events that led to the American Revolution in a unique modern light....

The Mormon Wars: The History of the Mormons' Conflicts across the Frontier in the 19th Century

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsAmong all the various figures in 19th century America who left controversial legacies, it is hard to find one as influential as Joseph Smith (1805-1844), the founder of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Mormonism, and the Latter-Day Saint movement. Revered as a prophet on the level of Moses by some, reviled as a perpetrator of large-scale fraud by others, what everyone can agree on is that Joseph Smith founded a religious movement that played a crucial role in the settlement of the West, especially in Utah. Locating Joseph Smith in history is to look for the "mess" of early America and find him standing in the middle, trying to make sense of the "native pandemo...

When loss lingers ... love - even beyond death. For it is through heartbreak that God opens doorways to hope....

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...

Taming the Arkansas River

by Sherry Laymon

Problems of flooding and bank cave-ins had long made the Arkansas River a nuisance to farmers, planters, businessmen, merchants, and others who lived, worked, or owned property in the river valley. For captains who transported passengers and goods on the river, underwater snags, fallen trees, and shallow water levels created minute-to-minute crises. The river’s "fits of uncontrollable rage and prolonged spells of stubborn torpidity" generated cross currents and swirling eddies that continually created unseen hazards for boatmen. In 1872, the Arkansas Gazette listed 117 submerged river vessels, most of which sunk after being ripped apart by snags.The federal government had responded sporadically to numerous requests for assistance with river development. After John McClellan became a sena...

Daniel Boone

by John Abbott

The little fleet of three small vessels, with which Columbus left Palos in Spain, in search of a new world, had been sixty-seven days at sea. They had traversed nearly three thousand miles of ocean, and yet there was nothing but a wide expanse of waters spread out before them. The despairing crew were loud in their murmurs, demanding that the expedition should be abandoned and that the ships should return to Spain. The morning of the 11th of October, 1492, had come. During the day Columbus, whose heart had been very heavily oppressed with anxiety, had been cheered by some indications that they were approaching land. Fresh seaweed was occasionally seen and a branch of a shrub with leaves and berries upon it, and a piece of wood curiously carved had been picked up.The devout commander was so...

The Donner Party (Excerpt from Shit Doesn't Just Happen)

by Bob Mayer

"“I wish I could cry, but I cannot. If I could forget the tragedy, perhaps I would know how to cry again.” Mary Graves. Survivor, the ‘Donner Party’

Every man-made disaster and catastrophe has at least six Cascade Events leading up to the final event, the catastrophe according to the Rule of Seven.

This is a quick read of the Cascade Events that led up to Cannibalism while the ‘Donner Party’ emigrated west to California

Bob examines the Rule of Seven, and how human error plays a role in many catastrophes. Nothing happens in isolation or as a result of a single event. Thus, by learning from history, we can gain insight into preventing a similar catastrophe in the future. The key to the Donner Party were the numerous tipping points where the...

The History of Cuba, vol. 2

by Willis Fletcher Johnson

Although floods rarely get as much coverage as other kinds of natural disasters like volcanic explosions, the Johnstown Flood of 1889 has remained an exception due to the sheer destruction and magnitude of the disaster. On May 31, 1889, Johnstown became a casualty of a combination of heavy rains and the failure of the South Fork Dam to stem the rising water levels of Lake Conemaugh about 15 miles away. The dam’s inability to contain the water and its subsequent collapse resulted in a catastrophic flood that swept through the town with virtually no warning. With water flowing at a rate equivalent to the Mississippi River, a tide of water and debris 60 feet high and traveling 40 miles per hour in some places surged through Johnstown and swept away people and property alike. The flood ultim...

Stonewall Jackson at Second Bull Run: An Excerpt from Life and Campaigns of Stonewall Jackson

by Robert Lewis Dabney

Robert Lewis Dabney (March 5, 1820 – January 3, 1898) was an American Christian theologian, a Southern Presbyterian pastor, and Confederate Army chaplain best known for being chief of staff to General Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson during his famous Valley Campaign and the Seven Days Battles. He also wrote Life and Campaigns of Stonewall Jackson, an invaluable biography of the general that was published in 1866, just a year after the Civil War had ended. Stonewall Jackson needs no formal introduction, being one of the most famous generals of the Civil War, revered throughout the South for his extremely successful military skill. At the same time, Jackson’s pious Christianity and seeming eccentricities have continued to fascinate historians, scholars and readers, who often stil...
