In the 1870s, the country was still recovering from a horrendously destructive Civil War. The nation was still mainly agrarian; cities were relatively small and large-scale industry almost non-existent. Thirty years later, the U.S. had become an industrial powerhouse with massive cities featuring skyscrapers, electric lights, automobiles on the streets, and subways running below. An influx of immigrants from different parts of the world had changed the very nature of American society which fe...

Understanding the Vietnam War

by Dr. Thomas Bruce

The Vietnam War, also called the Vietnam Conflict, is one of the great defining wars in American’s history, with an influence on the American psyche only surpassed by the Civil War. The armies of the United States have won and lost many battles during the wars it has become engaged it, but until Vietnam America had never actually lost a war. Lost is probably too strong a word to use. The American homeland was never attacked, and US forces were never decisively defeated in the field. America simply failed to win the war. The nation was unable to find the tactics to defeat the enemies will to continue fighting, while the war drained their own stamina to persevere with the conflict any longer. The ultimate withdrawal of US armed forces from Vietnam bruised America’s ego and shook th...

Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

TRACING THE BREWERS OF COLONIAL VIRGINIA: THE TRAIL OF YDNA SUBCLADE I-Y21524 TO NORTH CAROLINA AND BEYOND

by David Brewer

This book traces the history of a significant branch of the Brewer Family from 17th century Colonial Virginia through the mid-19th century, a period for which many existing family pedigrees have been speculative or unknown. The author brings modern YDNA tools and a detailed record analysis to bear in an effort to more accurately examine the roots of this family group. The author hypothesizes, based on the record evidence identified to date, that the tested members of this YDNA subclade - I-Y21524 -are descendants of John Brewer (I), one of the so-called ancient planters of the English colony in Virginia, through his son John Brewer II. As the book explains, it is possible that most of the tested members of this family group are descendants of John II's reputed son Thomas Brewer, who liv...

Melania Trump: The Slovenian Side of the Story

by Sandi Gorisek

Let’s play a simple game called “Experimental Lottery” in which you win 1 million dollars, but the winner must divide the winnings between himself and a perfect stranger. The catch is that if the stranger refuses his share, you both end up with nothing and you have only one opportunity. In a real case scenario, computer programmed logic would take anything which is common sense since anything is better than nothing, yet the human mind would refuse anything below 20% of the total winnings. Do you think that the share you offer would change if you were raised in humble surroundings with a state driven economy in which all men are supposed to be equal? How much would this differ if you were male or female, if your parents were rich or poor or if you were raised in a rural or urban envir...

The Diary of American Exceptionalism: Pivotal Events in American History 1783 - 2019

by Alan Sewell

“American Exceptionalism” has become a commonly heard expression in recent political discussions. It has many connotations, some of which may be perceived as chauvinistic by the politically correct.

What does it really mean?

Perhaps the best way to understand it is to hear the words of those Americans who MADE us such an exceptional nation through their exceptional courage to do what was difficult and right, rather than easy and expedient, during our most trying times.

This book isn’t a rehash of those famous phrases like “Give me Liberty, or give me Death!” Rather, it is intended to reveal the thoughts of our leaders during their most discouraging moments.

They’re the words of George Washington, frustrated by the petty qua...
