Salem's Theocracy: Shattered on the Rock of Witchcraft

by Corinda Marsh

Little Dorcas Good was four years old when she was arrested for practicing witchcraft. She was chained in a dungeon jail, unable to walk about or see the light of day for months.

Frightened girls accused men, women, and children of tormenting them through specters, ghosts, and witchcraft. The girls were spurred on by evil men who had hidden motives. All this was made possible by a Puritan Theocracy. Not until the theocracy smashed itself upon the rock did the tragedy end....

Metal Storm: Weird Custer A Novel

by William Sumrall

"A debut historical novel from U.S. Marine Sumrall that retells the story of Custer's "Last Stand" in savage detail." - KIRKUS"The way William Sumrall described the various scenes brought this adrenaline-pumping story to life. The coarse writing served to deliver more strength to the theme of the story and enable it to perfectly relate to the intended period." Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite"The basic plot, despite its familiarity, is stunning and unforgettable as seen through the eyes of this author.

Pssst! Russia, Uranium Cheap, Bombs Away!: The Obamian Age -- Another Day, Another Scandal

by Dov Ivry

(This is how the book begins.)Barack Obama was responsible for three acts which together make him by far the most incompetent and malfeasant president ever. It is a tossup which label goes first. 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and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the...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

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...

by Scott Campbell Brown

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” These words from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address are the foundation for this short book to deepen your understanding of our American heritage. Consider these first words of the Gettysburg Address. For many, they comprise a mere introduction to the famous speech by Abraham Lincoln. Yet, taken on their own, they have a profound meaning. 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...

The Jesuit Reports from North America, 1610-1764

by John Swapceinski

A modern English translation of the Jesuit Relations, actual reports from North America by French Jesuits concerning their experiences with Native American tribes during the years 1610-1764. This book is 50% longer than the Bible, containing a tremendous amount of historical content spanning over 100 years.

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...

Ronald Reagan was the president they elected to restore their country’s sagging influence in the world and disappointing image at home. He was a president who believed in a United States that was truly, as he said in his farewell address, “a shining city.” He believed in the myth of American greatness, and for a nation that was still numb from Watergate, immersed in economic stagnation, and h...

The (Real) Mueller Report (Simplified)!

by Walter J. Callahan

Review“The Mueller report was the much-anticipated report that the Left hoped would help impeach President Trump. At the same time, the Right hoped that the report would put to end all things related to any investigation on Trump and his activities both pre- and post-election. It remains to be seen how it pans out. The Mueller report arrived, and the country was just as divided as it was before its release. Probably because the report itself was hard to understand for most people. This SIMPLIFIED version of The Mueller Report makes the document understandable even to the most uninformed! Simplifying a complicated legal document is not an easy job! This is an absolutely great accomplishment!” --------------John Q.From the AuthorLike thousands of Americans, I downloaded the free 400+ pa...

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...

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...

Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible...

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,...

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...

Beyond Slavery: The Northern Romantic Nationalist Origins of America’s Civil War

by Walter Kirk Wood

IN THIS SHORT WORK, Professor Wood has taken on an important and often distorted question—the role of slavery in bringing on the great bloodletting of 1861—1865. The old propaganda charge that the war was “caused by” slavery now dominates “expert” opinion with almost totalitarian rigour. But in his exhaustive research into this question—to be published as a three-volume BEYOND SLAVERY—Dr. Wood will make a courageous refutation of that interpretation. He will show how the war became inevitable only because Northern society was infected by the revolutionary romantic nationalism that rocked Europe in the mid- 19th century. The South remained loyal to the old American dispensation of classical republicanism, and thus had to be eliminated. It was not the South’s defense of sla...

Here, being Iraq. Cavalry Scout. In the Army for that matter. Perhaps if I thought long and hard enough I could remember. I knew for damn sure that I had no shortage of time to work it out.

My journey had started 6,250 miles to the west in a crumbling Ohio mill town called Ashtabula. I had spent the better part of a year at a 3rd shift job in a factory on the far end of town, trying not to lose myself in the mullets and meth of the American Midwest. Then came 9/11. The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. ...

Seth Kinman: The Life and Legacy of the Famous Californian Mountain Man

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsBy the golden age of the mountain man in the mid-19th-century, there were perhaps only 3,000 living in the West. Their origins were disparate, although they included many Anglo-Americans.

by Sara M. Benson

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Built in the 1890s at the center of the nation, Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary was designed specifically to be a replica of the US Capitol Building. But why?

Locating Leavenworth in memory, history, and law, the prison geographically sits at the borders of Indian Territory (1825–1854) and Bleeding Kansas (1854–1864), both sites of contestation over slavery and freedom. Author Sara M. Benson argues that Leavenworth reshaped the design of punishment in America...
