True Crime Stories: A Prequel: 4 Shocking True Crime Cases

by Jack Rosewood

There are killers who stalk their prey, learning all they can about an intended target before striking. Some commit the act of murder out of hatred or revenge for someone in their lives. Killers like Detlev Guenzel searched for like-minded souls who would allow them to indulge in their deepest darkest fantasies. Then of course, there are those who brutally murder for no apparent reason whatsoever. Each of the four true crime murder cases in this true crime anthology are all different from each other in many ways. The wife who was cast aside for a much younger model; the vore who sought out a willing participant in the act of consensual homicide and cannibalism; the young man who butchered his elderly neighbours; and the man whose partners either disappeared or turned up dead over the perio...

How the Stars Aligned in ‘69: Historical Context for the Founding of the P.E.O. Sisterhood

by Sharon S. Atkins

Most P.E.O .literature regarding its founding begins with stories of several of the “seven founders” being invited to join the newly formed I.C. Sorosis society chapter at Iowa Wesleyan. And, such stories tell us how on Thursday, 21 January 1869, Hattie Briggs and Franc Roads decided upon the formation of a “society of our own.” These stories might lead one to believe that the start of the P.E.O. Sisterhood was practically a form of spontaneous combustion!

But, was it really? Could it be that the founding of P.E.O. came about because of seven different pioneering aspects of the historical context of 1869 as much as it did with the seven different women?

Read How the Stars Aligned in ’69 and learn the true story about the beginning of P.E.O....

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.

The Souls of Black Folk (AmazonClassics Edition)

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. Du Bois introduces and explores the concept of “double-consciousness”—a term he uses to describe the experience of living as an African American and having a “sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others.”Though an examination of Black life in post–Civil War America, The Souls of Black Folk has had a lasting impact on civil rights and the discussion of race in the United States.Revised edition: Previously published as The Souls of Black Folk, this edition of The Souls of Black Folk (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions....

by Ken Zimmerman Jr.

On Saturday, May 5, 1900 at 11:30 p.m., the explosion of the Suburban Line at the Wabash and Sarah Street railroad crossing marked the beginning of the St. Louis Street Car Strike of 1900. Before the strike was over in September 1900, the streets of St. Louis would be a battle ground between rich and poor with the St. Louis Police Department in the middle of the fray.

They are all gone now―the Titanic survivors. No human being who stood on her decks that fateful night was alive to commemorate the event on its 100th anniversary. Their stories are with us, however, and the lessons remain. From the moment the world learned the Titanic had sunk, we wanted to know, who had survived? Those answers didn’t come until the evening of Thursday, April 18, 1912―when the Cunard liner Carpathia finally reached New York with the 706 survivors who had been recovered from Titanic’s lifeboats.Harold Bride, “Titanic’s surviving wireless operator,” relayed the story of the ship’s band. “The way the band kept playing was a noble thing. I heard it first while still we were working wireless when there was a ragtime tune for us. The last I saw of the band, whe...
