Oswald's Odyssey: Two Hours in Dallas

by Andrew Culver

This is a comprehensive, in-depth timeline of Lee Harvey Oswald's fateful journey from the Texas School Book Depository to the Texas Theater where he was arrested on November 22nd, 1963.

The chronology uses a wide variety of sources to evaluate what witnesses saw, and when they made their statements. The reader follows Oswald, minute by minute, from 12:00, when he was an anonymous warehouse employee, to 2:00, when he was arrested and his fate was sealed.

Pirates: Blackbeard - The Pirate Terror of the Sea

by Patrick Auerbach

The pirate Blackbeard is perhaps the most notorious of sea robbers.

Blackbeard was British, probably born before 1690. His real name was thought to be Edward Teach. As a young seaman, he had served on a British privateer that was based in Jamaica, an island in the Caribbean. Privateers were privately owned, armed ships hired by governments during time of war.

Nikola Tesla: A Captivating Guide to the Life of a Genius Inventor

Explore the Captivating Life of Nikola TeslaFree History BONUS Inside!Obsessive, brilliant, and tortured, Nikola Tesla was lauded for his invention of the alternating current (AC), and other significant contributions to science.

Although Tesla’s work was a major factor in the success of the second Industrial Revolution, he died alone, impoverished, and largely shunned by the scientific community that once hailed him a genius.Beset by visions, without a wife or children, Nikola Tesla’s brilliant mind changed t...

Thomas Jefferson: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of US Presidents Book 3)

Thomas Jefferson
At a White House dinner in 1962 honoring the Nobel Prize winners of the Western Hemisphere, President John Kennedy greeted them by saying: “I want to tell you how welcome you are to the White House.
