The Hand of a Merciful God

by David Ballenger

150 years after the Civil War, stories and tales survive. Libraries are filled with historical documents, manuscripts and photographic images that cover all aspects of the American Civil War. There are thousands of history books and documentaries giving us facts that have been recorded but countless stories have never been recorded—personal stories of men who fought and died, stories of men who survived. We don’t know all of their stories; we don’t know the whole story. Yet this is our history and these are our ancestors. To truly understand what drove these men to look into the face of death on a daily basis we must listen to them. But, the time is far past where we could speak to those who knew the truth, who experienced the war. Now we only have the stories from our ancestors as ...

A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WWI

by Melina Druga

In our 24/7 news cycle, it is difficult to imagine a time when news reports were often days old, when stories weren’t necessarily confirmed and when colorful language permeated articles. During World War 1, that’s exactly how newspapers in Canada and the United States reported events locally and aboard.A Tale of Two Nations focuses on the start of the war and key events from 1915-1918. It examines events not through the lens of hindsight and analysis but as they occurred.In A Tale of Two Nations, you’ll read about:•1914: War begins in Europe•1915: The Second Battle of Ypres and sinking of the Lusitania•1916: The Battle of the Somme and the U.S. presidential election•1917: The Battle of Vimy Ridge and the United States enters the war•1918: The war ends and the Spanish...

Star-Crossed: A Quantitative Reassessment of the Relative Combat Performance of the Army of Tennessee Compared to the Army of Northern Virginia

by Michael R. Brasher

Everyone KNOWS the Army of Northern Virginia was a "winner" and its sister army, the Army of Tennessee was a "loser," right?In his book, Two Great Rebel Armies: An Essay in Confederate Military History, Richard M. McMurry draws the somewhat controversial conclusion that Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was not only the better led army, but that the composition of Lee's army indeed made it the better army, when compared with its Western sister, the Army of Tennessee.While few historians would beg to differ with the first conclusion - the likes of Bragg, Polk, Hardee and Hood simply do not compare with the leadership offered by Lee, Jackson and Longstreet - historians have generally not cared to examine the potential for a more fundamental reason for the success of the one army, and the fai...

The Thundering Herd: Farm Life in the 1950's and 60's; Looking through the lens of duty in Vietnam.

by John E. Peltier

These stories begin with brief family histories that bring the Peltier and the Scottish Keillor families together. John was the fifth of the twelve children that Wilburn and Barbara Peltier raised on the flat salt grass prairie of Southeast Texas after they married. The life they created for their family on their rice farm and cattle ranch provided fertile ground for the life experiences that are shared in these settings. At the age of nineteen, naïve and fresh from the farm, John was drafted into the U.S. Army. After surviving boot camp and medical corpsman training, he found himself in Vietnam. John used his time in the military and its experiences as the backdrop to describe life growing up. Writing this book intensified the realization of the valuable life lessons that his family and ...

Women's Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Patricia Zavella

At the time Women’s Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley was published, little research had been done on the relationship between the wage labor and household labor of Mexican American women. Drawing on revisionist social theories relating to Chicano family structure as well as on feminist theory, Patricia Zavella paints a compelling picture of the Chicano women who worked in northern California’s fruit and vegetable canneries. Her book combines social history, shop floor ethnography, and in-depth interviews to explore the links between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market....

Gettysburg’s Peach Orchard: Longstreet, Sickles, and the Bloody Fight for the “Commanding Ground” Along the Emmitsburg Road

by James A. Hessler

More books have been written about the battle of Gettysburg than any other engagement of the Civil War. The historiography of the battle’s second day is usually dominated by the Union’s successful defense of Little Round Top, but the day’s most influential action occurred nearly one mile west along the Emmitsburg Road in farmer Joseph Sherfy’s peach orchard. Despite its overriding importance, no full-length study of this pivotal action has been written until now. James Hessler’s and Britt Isenberg’s Gettysburg’s Peach Orchard: Longstreet, Sickles, and the Bloody Fight for the “Commanding Ground” Along the Emmitsburg Road corrects that oversight.On July 2, 1863, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee ordered skeptical subordinate Lt. Gen. James Longstreet to launch a massive assa...

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....

Bright and beautiful, 25 year old Donaldina "Dolly" Cameron went to San Francisco for one year to teach sewing at the Mission Home.

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...

Wine In The Sand: My Adventures through Desert STORM

I was starting the paperwork to leave the Air Force while coming to the end of my 4 year hitch. Next I was sitting in the middle of a war zone with no end to my military stint in sight. This is how I found myself in Desert Shield/Storm, and how my friends and I did everything possible to break every rule we were given. We didn't just make lemonade, we juiced it up with high octane, then lit the box it came in on fire! M-16s, condoms, alcohol, and women. We might die, but we were going to laugh our way there! I'm sure everyone who went to Desert Storm has a story. This one is mine....

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel ...
