by Dennis A. Henigan

Debunking the lethal logic behind the pervasive myths that have framed the gun control debateThe gun lobby’s remarkable success in using engaging slogans to frame the gun control debate has allowed it to block lifesaving gun legislation for decades. But is there any truth to this bumper-sticker logic?

He counters the gun lobby’s messages by weaving together the most compelling current research and insights drawn from the grim reality of deadly gunfire in our homes and communities. Henigan charts a new path toward ending the American nightmare of gun violence.Myths Include:“When guns are out...

Hacksaw Ridge : The True Story of Desmond Doss

by Ronald Kruk

According to Doss's account in a documentary film titled "The Contentious Objector", as he rescued soldiers one-by-one, he breathed into the air with each go-around, "Lord, please help me get one more."The modest man of faith claims to have saved 50 wounded soldiers from certain death. His comrades claim that he saved 100. President Harry S. Truman presented him with the Congressional Medal of Honor upon his return to the United States, for his heroics on Okinawa, and the citation credits him with saving 75 lives, splitting the difference."From a human standpoint, I shouldn't be here to tell the story," said Doss in an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "No telling how many times the Lord has spared my life." During World War II, 16,112,556 American soldiers served their country a...

John Adams: A Captivating Guide to an American Founding Father Who Served as the Second President of the United States of America

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating life of John Adams, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!John Adams once wrote, “People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity.” That was very much Adams’ experience. Although he was often maligned, he didn’t deserve it. Having been born in the English colony of Massachusetts in 1735, he not only witnessed a new nation emerging from the shell of infancy, but he also participated in its growing pains. Adams was a man who was frequently asked to assume roles in which he had little experience, like that of a diplomat to France and England. In a sense, he was a part of the vanguard that the government had thrown into the fray. But why would the government choose him to represent their interests? Perhaps the main reason was that...

A call to Haiti's awakening, success and strategies for a better future

by Ernst Etienne

This book highlights in deep the incredible accomplishment of the Haitian nation, being the only ever slave revolution leading to fighting off slavery and attaining independence through bloodshed. The slaves of Haiti played a great role in this after many years under French brutality.In comparison to other Caribbean nations facing the same state of slavery, Haitian slaves were not allowed to trade internationally for more than 25 years until they agreed to pay huge debts to the French in 1827. Hence they actually had to repay their former ‘masters’ for the loss of the ‘masters’ ‘property.From a succinct yet enlightening journey through the history of Haiti’s land, to the series of events that earned the nation independence at last, this book is a manifesto declaring the glory a...

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Three Deadly Snipers

by Mark Logan

ARRON PERRY. ROB FURLONG. CRAIG HARRISON.

Legendary snipers.

In researching the competition for who had the longest-distance kill in military history, the majority of laymen would expect to see a Navy SEAL or a Marine heading the top of the list. A little research, however, shows the top three long-shot kills are Craig Harrison (United Kingdom), Rob Furlong (Canada) and Arron Perry (Canada).
The late Chris Kyle, of “American Sniper” fame, is eighth on the list. There is a South African special forces sniper that is sixth on the list whose name is withheld as is a Norwegian Army Sniper.
Snipers operate under the motto of not boasting about their kills. In the defense of the top three snipers listed above, they have all been outed by the media o...

Warriors, statesmen, prophets and scholars; they were the firmest of friends and the most formidable of foes. They are heroes and heroines of all manners in the often tragic, yet inspiring chronicle of The North American Native.Most—but not all—of the individuals whose lives are briefly described in this book were Chiefs. Some have become legends within American history and famous worldwide. But all were leaders in the immense struggle to preserve their treasured lands, customs, beliefs and way of life. With their tribesmen, they are intimately linked to America’s founding, westward expansion, and at times, the inhumane treatment they received at the hands of the United States Government. Since the first Europeans set foot in North America, Native Americans have played a vital ro...

The Land of Little Rain

The Voyager Program: The History and Legacy of NASA’s First Probes that Traveled to the Outer Solar System

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsToday the Space Race is widely viewed poignantly and fondly as a race to the Moon that culminated with Apollo 11 “winning” the Race for the United States. In fact, it encompassed a much broader range of competition between the Soviet Union and the United States that affected everything from military technology to successfully launching satellites that could land on Mars or orbit other planets in the Solar System. Moreover, the notion that America “won” the Space Race at the end of the 1960s overlooks just how competitive the Space Race actually was in launching people into orbit, as well as the major contributions the Space Race influenced in leading to today’s International Space Station a...

The Presidents: and their motivations for seeking the office

by Charles Henry Vessey

THE PRESIDENTS and Their Motivations for Seeking the Office is a microcosm of American political life viewed through the prism of the American Presidency. Why would anyone solicit an office where upon election, approximately 50% of your constituents oppose or dislike your agenda? Does the allure of power draw the largest egos to the most demanding job in the world? Is it the opportunity to impose their political will on the American people? Does the job represent the possibility to create a more just society or perhaps a utopia on earth? The founders were determined to create a meritocracy rather than the aristocracy that prevailed in Europe. They succeeded in spite of attempts by the temporary occupants of the Presidency to alter the American experience with transitory political theories....

LIFE IN THE ARMY DURING US CIVIL WAR: "the most horrible, necessary, intimate, acrimonious, mean-spirited, and heroic war in our history"

by Gregory March

The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. The Civil War is the most studied and written about episode in U.S. history. Primarily as a result of the long-standing controversy over the enslavement of black people, war broke out in April 1861 when secessionist forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina shortly after Abraham Lincoln had been inaugurated as the President of the United States. The loyalists of the Union in the North proclaimed support for the Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States in the South, who advocated for states' rights to uphold slavery.Among the 34 U.S. states in February 1861, secessionist partisans in seven Southern slave states declared state secessions from the country and unveiled their defiant form...

Mexican immigration to the USA: [IMMIGRATION HISTORY AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE U.S. ECONOMY]

by Gregory March

Illegal immigration to the United States is the unlawful entry of foreign nationals into the United States, and the remaining in the country of admitted foreign nationals after the expiration of their U.S. visas or parole documents. Earlier naturalization laws were followed by the 1875 and 1882 Acts prohibiting Chinese immigrants. A 1906 act required immigrants to learn English in order to become citizens, and a 1917 act defined aliens with a long list of undesirables, including most Asians. The U.S. had otherwise nearly open borders until the early 20th century, with only 1% rejected from 1890-1924. A 1924 act established visa requirements and enacted quotas for immigrants from specific countries, especially targeting Italians and Eastern Europeans.In response to the September 11 attacks,...

Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains

by Andrew Clark

The Great Plains has been central to academic and popular visions of Native American warfare, largely because the region’s well-documented violence was so central to the expansion of Euroamerican settlement. However, social violence has deep roots on the Plains beyond this post-Contact perception, and these roots have not been systematically examined through archaeology before. War was part, and perhaps an important part, of the process of ethnogenesis that helped to define tribal societies in the region, and it affected many other aspects of human lives there. In Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains, anthropologists who study sites across the Plains critically examine regional themes of warfare from pre-Contact and post-Contact periods and assess how war shape...

The Sources of Anti-Slavery Constitutionalism in America, 1760-1848

by William M. Wiecek

This ambitious book examines the constitutional and legal doctrines of the antislavery movement from the eve of the American Revolution to the Wilmot Proviso and the 1848 national elections. Relating political activity to constitutional thought, William M. Wiecek surveys the antislavery societies, the ideas of their individual members, and the actions of those opposed to slavery and its expansion into the territories. He shows that the idea of constitutionalism has popular origins and was not the exclusive creation of a caste of lawyers. In offering a sophisticated examination of both sides of the argument about slavery, he not only discusses court cases and statutes, but also considers a broad range of "extrajudicial" thought—political speeches and pamphlets, legislative debates and arg...

Homicide in American Fiction, 1798–1860: A Study in Social Values

Homicide has many social and psychological implications that vary from culture to culture and which change as people accept new ideas concerning guilt, responsibility, and the causes of crime. A study of attitudes toward homicide is therefore a method of examining social values in a specific setting. Homicide in American Fiction, 1798–1860 is the first book to contrast psychological assumptions of imaginative writers with certain social and intellectual currents in an attempt to integrate social attitudes toward such diverse subjects as human evil, moral responsibility, criminal insanity, social causes of crime, dueling, lynching, the "unwritten law" of a husband’s revenge, and capital punishment. In addition to works of literary distinction by Cooper, Hawthorne, Irving, and Poe, among...

Indeed, it was called the Pearl of the Antilles and it is the first independent republic of coloured people in modern times. However, Haiti has experienced significant decline since its early days. It is presently the poorest country in the Americas and has an economy that depends mainly on foreign aid.

In 1970, Lenny can no longer deny that his wife is undergoing a profound change. Despite her relatively young age, her mind succumbs to forgetfulness. Now, he goes as far back as the moment he met Natasha during WWII, when he was a soldier and she—a star, brilliant yet illusive. Natasha was a riddle to him then, and to this day, with all the changes she has gone through, she still is.

“Digging into the past, mining its moments, trying to piece them together this way and that, dusting off each memory of Natasha, of how we were, the highs and lows of the music of us, to find out where the problem may have started?”

To their son, Ben, that may seem like an exercise in futility. For Lenny, it is a necessary process of discovery, one that is as tormenting as it i...

Nonsense You Learned in History Class: Volume 1

Is Christopher Columbus a villain or unfairly judged through a modern lens? Was free market capitalism the cause of the crash of 1929 or was the Federal Reserve the culprit?

Were southerners as united behind slavery and secession as suggested? If you are like me, you enjoy historical debate and discussion. It enhances our perspective and provides us wisdom and insight. Unfortunately, history is arguably the most poorly delivered subject in our schools. Even worse, many campuses do not tolerate opposing perspectives regarding many critical historical concepts. In my book, I discuss perspectives on several selected topics...

Pirates: The Golden Age of Piracy: A History From Beginning to End

Pirates dominate movie box office profits, they are theme park entertainment, and they occupy a place in popular culture that has outlasted the era when they originally ruled the seas. Contemporary audiences who are safe from the pistols and cutlasses of the men who sailed the Caribbean, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans to prey upon ships and claim their cargo may find it hard to reconcile the perceived glamor of Captain Jack Sparrow with the authentic bloodlust and greed of the real pirates who killed without conscience, kidnapped innocent victims for ransom, and ravaged, bribed, and robbed their way into legend. Tragut Rais, Grace O’Malley, William Kidd, Blackbeard and their colleagues were dangerous adventurers who lived at a time when piracy was an economic enterpris...

Die Hard

by Alan David

Chet Manning, troubleshooter with the South and West Railroad, never needed to look for trouble.

It just seemed to stroll right up and punch him in the gut.

To Manning, that was a way of life.

The big problem right now was a saloon girl called Glory Harpe - the troubleshooter had killed her man, and Glory was out for revenge.

Roping in two gunslinging sidekicks, she'd got herself a plan to see Manning die agonisingly, bloodily and very, very slowly.

Chet was on his own.

He was facing two cunning thugs and a kill-crazy slut.

For once, the odds seemed too long for comfort...

Will his courage last long enough for him to find and kill his outlawed enemies?

Alcatraz: The Surprising History of America's Most Notorious Prison

by Patrick Auerbach

The federal prison on Alcatraz Island in the chilly waters of California’s San Francisco Bay housed some of America’s most difficult and dangerous prisoners during its years of operation from 1934 to 1963. Among those who served time at the maximum-security facility were the notorious gangster Al “Scarface” Capone (1899-1947) and murderer Robert “Birdman of Alcatraz” Stroud (1890-1963).

When prisoners boarded the boat for Alcatraz, they knew that they had reached the end of the line. Not only was this the toughest of all Federal penitentiaries, but it was also said to be virtually escape-proof. The island was a natural fortress, separated from the mainland by a narrow strait of freezing water and deadly currents. This prison was the U.S. government’s drastic ans...

A House Divided: This is why Donald Trump won the election

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

People not only in America, but also all over the world were stunned when Donald Trump won the presidential election. Newscasters scratched their heads, others cried, and many more were in total shock. How could this have happened? Why did it happen? I have the answer, but many will not want to hear it. Abraham Lincoln had the answer for his generation, but many in his day did not want to hear him either. The reason Donald Trump won the presidential election is because America is divided. Some believe it has not been this divided since the Civil War. There are so many issues that polarize us and put people at odds with one another. There is also animosity on both sides of nearly every issue. This is why Donald Trump won. I know because I had not voted for over forty years. I did n...

Washington State: Counties – Towns & People, Part I opens a window into the history of the counties, towns, and people of the state. My approach in writing this has been to focus on a select few of the early settlers, and the counties and towns they helped settle. And rather than list the counties alphabetically, I have elected to divide the book, and place them in the order they were created.Part I covers the 19 counties west of the Cascades. Part II will cover the remaining 20 counties east of the Cascades. I have used a variety of sources including newspapers, letters, diaries, government records, historical records, family trees, and the memoirs of descendants. Together, these records take us back to the early days of Washington State. All information related to today’s populations...

Pirates: The True and Surprising Story of the Pirates of the Caribbean

by Patrick Auerbach

Piracy is an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. Those who engage in acts of piracy are called pirates.

The era of piracy in the Caribbean began in the 1500s and died out in the 1830s after the navies of the nations of Western Europe and North America with colonies in the Caribbean began combating pirates.

In the early eighteenth century a number of the great pirate captains, including Edward 'Blackbeard' Teach and 'Black Sam' Bellamy, joined forces. This infamous 'Pirating Gang' was more than simply a thieving band of brothers. Many of its members had come to piracy as a revolt against conditions in the merchant fleet and in the cities and plantations in the Old and New Worlds.

Piracy flourished in the Caribbean because of the existence of p...

Mayan Civilization: The True And Surprising History and Mystery of the Mayan Calendar, Ruins, Religion & Gods

The Maya are an indigenous people of Mexico and Central America who have continuously inhabited the lands comprising modern-day Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Campeche, Tabasco, and Chiapas in Mexico and southward through Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and Honduras. The designation Maya comes from the ancient Yucatan city of Mayapan, the last capital of a Mayan Kingdom in the Post-Classic Period.

The Maya people refer to themselves by ethnicity and language bonds such as Quiche in the south or Yucatec in the north (though there are many others). The `Mysterious Maya’ have intrigued the world since their `discovery’ in the 1840's by John Lloyd Stephens and Frederick Catherwood but, in reality, much of the culture is not that mysterious when understood.

History of the War with Mexico

The war of the United States with Mexico awakened the military ardor of American citizens, which had been slumbering since the contest with Great Britain in 1812-14. It stirred their imagination with the romance which has ever been connected with the scenes of Spanish conquest, heightened by the strange histories and vestiges of the most ancient people and civilization of the New World. It allured the adventurous spirit of the Northern soldier by the attractions of a tropical climate and a land of superb mountain-ranges veined with silver and gold, and of valleys and plains rich with Southern fruits and flowers. This war formed an epoch in the history of the United States from which dates that heroic spirit of patriotism and those marvellous qualities of the American soldier of the last g...

Molly's Memoir

by Deanna Edens

“Mr. Minion pushed open the door of the cabin and immediately froze when he heard the shrilling sound of an infant crying. He knew, for sure, that when he’d left out this morning there weren’t any babies living with him, and as far as he could recollect, he wasn’t expecting none either.”

Molly’s Memoir is a journey through the life and times of a woman who is raised by a Seneca Indian after she is abandoned on the porch of a log cabin in the hills of West Virginia. Growing up in the isolated Monongahela Mountains, she learns about love, faith, and of the craft of healing with medicinal herbs.

The background of these stories begins in 1905 when West Virginia was wild and wooly, and continues to the later half of the 20th century, when a journalism stu...

The Conquest of Peru

by William Prescott

The most brilliant passages in the history of Spanish adventure in the New World are undoubtedly afforded by the conquests of Mexico and Peru, - the two states which combined with the largest extent of empire a refined social polity, and considerable progress in the arts of civilization. Indeed, so prominently do they stand out on the great canvas of history, that the name of the one, notwithstanding the contrast they exhibit in their respective institutions, most naturally suggests that of the other; and, when I sent to Spain to collect materials for an account of the Conquest of Mexico, I included in my researches those relating to the Conquest of Peru......

The Sac and Fox: The History and Legacy of the Native American Tribe Forcibly Removed from the Midwest to Oklahoma

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography*Includes a table of contentsFew people need to be reminded in the 21st century of the cost of European imperialism and colonization on indigenous and native cultures around the world. The increasingly controversial view of “Columbus Day,” still represented on the United States commemorative calendar, attests quite clearly to an ambiguous modern view of early European encounters with Native Americans. Slavery, disease, land and resource appropriation and the rapid disintegration of indigenous societies are all characteristics of European global expansion. There are those societies, particularly in Asia and Africa, that proved resilient enough to weather the European imperialism, but others, most notably those of Australia and North America, cer...
