All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...

1915: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and World War I Part 2

by Melina Druga

“My colleagues and I are deeply lament the long list of casualties,” Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden said, “and send our profound sympathy to every home which is plunged into sadness and sorrow by the tidings that reach us from hour to hour.”Spring 1915 is consumed with two traumatic events. Canada endures a trial by fire at the Second Battle of Ypres. While the Canadians are ultimately successful – to the pride of their countrymen – the battle marks the first widespread use of chlorine gas. The gas moved across the ground like a yellow-green fog, damaged the mucus membranes and caused asphyxiation.Meanwhile, Americans are rocked by the torpedoing of the Lusitania, an ocean liner that – like the Titanic – was thought to be unsinkable. The sinking cost the lives of nea...

Wall Street bankers engineered perhaps the greatest larceny in history nearly causing a collapse of the world economy. Obama prosecuted no one. Instead he invited many of the perpetrators to the White House. Iran had aggravated two wars in which in the end the numbers of dead may reach a million. Obama gave Iran $150 billion to make more wars -- after Syria and Yemen, Israel is number three on their list -- despite the fact that a third of this money had been marked by judges for American victims of multiple Iranian terrorist attacks over a long period including 9/11. Then there is the Uranium One...

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...

I Slept in Hitler's Bed: A Memoir by Jay Balter

by Jay Balter

Jay Balter did not have an easy life growing up in mid-20th century Brooklyn. His father, known to his mother only as “that son of a bitch” was many things—a music publisher who gambled away the entire family fortune he made on Broadway, a philander, a gangster, a deadbeat dad—but mostly, he was absent. Jay comes of age in the Orthodox Jewish community of Crown Heights with his mentally ill twin sister, his angry older brother, and his beloved mother, an early feminist who will do anything to support her family. In 1958, at 18 years old, he enters the US Army. During his basic training in Georgia, Jay’s anger over both American racism and the European Holocaust comes to the surface, and he vows, “I was prepared to teach those rebels a lesson. I was not prepared to roll over and...

It has been more than fifty years since the mission took place, and with the secrecy recently lifted on the story it can now be told by one of the few persons involved.The story chronicles a virtually unknown part of the intrigue and courage associated with a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation that simply did not or could not function as it was intended to do.Later research indicates that the operation probably involved persons by the hundreds, mostly young soldiers, and by early 1961 the death rate was approaching the point of raising suspicions...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Michael A. Estrada

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...

They speak to the actions and sacrifices of the Founding Mothers and Fathers, based on the concepts of Liberty and Equality. In this one sentence, Lincoln demonstrates the inspiring wisdom and humanity of our Founders.Such wisdom and humanity appear to be lacking today...

Stories of Europeans' first encounters with native Americans, exploration, warfare, murder, disease, torture, and cannibalism; all these are contained in the massive document you hold in your hands, and it all occurred right here in North America during the 1600s.

In early 2014, I found online a set of documents called the "Jesuit Relations". These reports, called "Relations", as in "relating" events to someone, were written by an order of French Catholic prie...

Understanding the Vietnam 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.

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...

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...

Killing America: A 100 Year Murder: Forty Historical Wounds That Bill O'Reilly Didn't Write About

by M King

***50 Page Illustrated Booklet***
By now, most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, have come to realize that something is not quite right in America. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you sense it instinctively.

How can you not sense it? For the first time ever, both the majority of the younger and the older generations of America now believe that future generations will not be as prosperous as their parents’ generation was. And that’s only the economic pessimism. On the social and cultural fronts, how many of us can truly say that we are proud are what our society has degenerated to?

Make no mistake; the America we once knew has indeed been murdered. How did we arrive at this point of perpetual debt, perpetual inflation,...

Canadian Sniper

by Eric Hilton

Francis Pegahmagabow has long been considered the most prolific killing machine of the First World War as he has been credited with over 378 deaths. This book chronicles his reputation as both a sniper and scout as the Canadian/British Army allowed him to roam freely throughout the "No Man's Land" region of France where he singlehandedly took down German troops. We also look at his later life as he suffered from "shell shock" (now known as post-traumatic stress disorder) and was deemed a "mental case" by the local Indian agents who oversaw his tribal band....

The Great Depression and the New Deal: Core Documents

by John Moser

This collection of documents on the Depression and New Deal is the second volume in an extended series of document collections from the Ashbrook Center that will cover major periods, themes, and institutions in American history and government. The series began with a collection on the Founding. This volume follows appropriately, because it makes clear the reasons why and the degree to which Franklin Roosevelt intended the New Deal to be a re-founding of the American republic. In presenting the words that Roosevelt spoke, the collection shows us not only his arguments but his masterful rhetoric, which presented the New Deal as only an updating of the Founding. The collection presents as well the arguments of those who opposed the New Deal — Democrats as well as Republicans — and those w...
