Miss Eda, My Dearest Friend: The Love Story of Henry Johnson Spicer and Eda Lucinda Ferguson

by Renee Moore Frost Great-Great Grand Daughter

In 1942 the 1800's Ferguson home burned to the ground with the only item being saved was a trunk of precious letters from loved ones. These letters have been preserved and now transcribed to relive the life and times before, during and after the cruel war known as the Civil War of 1861-1865. As I assembled the letters in date order, I found the many families of Wilkes County, North Carolina interacting with my Ferguson-Spicer family. These families shared their faith in God, the tragedy of war and the love of the Blue Ridge Mountains."For the Blood of the Southern men flashes through their veins & declares they will die in defense of the Southern Rites."Thomas L Ferguson July 27, 1861"Genl Jackson leading we flanked them on their right when the fight commenced it was a fox chase till...

The REAL Roosevelts: An Omitted History: What PBS & Ken Burns Didn't Tell You

by M King

In the pantheon of American heroes, few names are more revered than that of 'Roosevelt'. As the decades pass into the century mark, the recent works of "historians" such as Doris Kearns Goodwin and film producer Ken Burns have exalted the Holy Trinity of Roosevelt to demi-god status.

There was Theodore, hero of San Juan Hill, builder of the Panama Canal, scourge of the big bad "Robber Barons", and tireless champion of "the worker" whose manly image is immortalized in the stone of Mount Rushmore.

There was Franklin, the altruistic savior of America who turned against his own class to serve "the common man". FDR, we are told, saved America, and indeed, the world. For that, his own image is immortalized on every American dime.

And finally, there was E...

South Texas Drag

by Tony Molina

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales--from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong--come to...

Wars and Words

by Adrian Musgrave

I never met my great-uncle, George Clarke Musgrave. Born in 1874, he answered the Reaper's call in 1932 and now lies at rest with his parents at Swanage in the beautiful countryside of Dorset. I did not know him but, for more than a decade now, I have lived with him, walked with him and dreamed with him. But now he is gone and his going has left us with the sad reality that he can no longer recount his life and times to you in person. That task has slipped several branches down the family tree to me and it is with some trepidation, and a keen desire to keep true to his memory, that I have dedicated myself to channelling for you the stories of this fascinating, multi-faceted, complex character.George Clarke Musgrave's time in this world carried him through the great challenges and changes o...

I was never put in Facebook Prison, but I know many who were. Most of them were just posting or reposting articles that were not favorable to Obama or Hillary. I learned what my purpose was and I came to Facebook every day to fulfill that purpose. Do I understand SnapChat or the power of Instagram or how to market via Pinterest? No. Do I believe everyone should have an interest in politics? In some ways, yes.

The Fighting Cheyennes

by George Bird Grinnell

"This book deals with the wars of the Cheyennes. A fighting and a fearless people. When their struggles with the white men began, some of their older and wiser men strove earnestly to preserve peace, but their efforts failed. During these first wars between the whites and the Cheyennes, the United States Government was struggling for its very life. Its attention was concentrated on the war between the North and the South, and the movements of a few Indians on the thinly settled frontier attracted little notice. As more and more people pushed into the West, there was more and more fighting with Indians, until in 1878-9 it ceased — so far as the Cheyennes were concerned.Since the Indians could not write, the history of their wars has been set down by their enemies, and the story has been ...

The mention of the battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor might ring a bell. Would the same be true hearing about the battles of Resaca? Kennesaw Mountain? Peachtree Creek? These were all part of the Atlanta Campaign. Odds are you are not nearly as familiar with the Atlanta Campaign as the more famous battles that occurred in the Eastern Theater. Of course there are several excellent books on the Atlanta Campaign. Yes there are, but...

The Baileys of Bailey Hill: Early Lane County (OR) Families With Lorane Connections (Early Lane County Oregon Families with Lorane Connections Book 1)

In researching the Bailey family of the Bailey Hill area of Eugene, Oregon, I became enamored with the strength of character and thread of family bonding that ran through their midst. When I began my project, it was with the intention of profiling 4-6 families in one book, but once I got into my detailed research, I knew that there was much more to the family than I expected. The history of the Bailey family of Bailey Hill has proven to be rich and interesting. Arriving in the late 1840s and through the 1850s, they were early pioneers to Benton and Lane Counties in Oregon and, although their major connection was not with the Lorane area, they had a strong presence in the Siuslaw Valley and other parts of Lane County, Oregon as well.Bailey Hill, the area where several family members settled...

John Hancock belongs to that nearly mythical assemblage, the Founding Fathers, and his bold signature across the Declaration of Independence has placed him among the most famous of that legendary group. Indeed, the very renown of his signature has tended to obscure his position as one of the most extraordinary politicians in American history.Hancock was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, in 1737. When his father died in 1744 after a short illness, seven-year-old John was sent to live with his childless Uncle Thomas, a prosperous merchant in Boston. John attended Boston Latin School and later Harvard, where he was an indifferent student, and then joined his uncle as an apprentice in the world of commerce. At the age of twenty-seven, when his uncle passed away, he became one of the richest me...

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...
