War Trails

by Sally Hull

In this concluding story of the Trails series, young George Northwood (formerly known as Georgy), all grown up, travels back East from Oregon and lands in the middle of the American Civil War. Unwilling to take sides, having loyalties in both the North and the South, he chooses to use his medical abilities in treating the wounded—on both sides. Along the way he teams up with a young nurse from Montana, and rescues a little orphan boy. Donning the uniforms of both sides, George finds himself in the ticklish situation of having to prove his loyalty to the North as well as to the South. His refusal to lie makes this all the harder to do. But through it all, God’s hand shelters him and molds him into the man He created him to be, accomplishing His purpose in George’s life....

Cuba - Pearl Of The Antilles

by Adrian Musgrave

The Great War of 1914 - 1918 has taught the world more in geography and history than a century of ordinary education would have imparted. It has destroyed many inherited prejudices and shattered the complacency which was shackling the imagination that built up the British Empire. As peace introduces a new era of international comity which will test the bonds forged between the Allied countries, this seems an opportune time to present some simple facts regarding Cuba, a young member of the family of nations, that has stood solidly with the Allies from the outset, but of whom the British people know so little. We have special interests in the West Indies, and there are sentimental and practical reasons why we should have a cordial understanding with our largest neighbour there, nearly the si...

Memoir of Col. Benjamin Tallmadge

by Benjamin Tallmadge

Guerilla, rebel, politician, spy—Col. Benjamin Tallmadge lived one of the most remarkable lives of the American Revolution When British troops defeated the Continental Army on Long Island, Gen. George Washington was forced to abandon New York in order to save the revolution. The British established their headquarters in New York City, beginning an occupation that would last the length of the war. Priceless intelligence flowed through the city’s harbor, and Washington wanted to claim it as his own. To Benjamin Tallmadge, a young officer of the Continental Army, the general assigned an impossible mission: Infiltrate New York, establish a spy network, and report everything the British know.   Throughout the war, Tallmadge and his spies collected intelligence on troop movements, sneak att...

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...

Spanish American War: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Spanish-American War
“A splendid little war “- that’s how one contemporary observer described the Spanish-American War, a war that is arguably one of the most important wars ever fought. The duration was short and the victory decisive, thus little and splendid, the latter, at least, from the victor’s point of view. The impacts of the war, however, were anything but little. In fact, the aftermath of the Spanish-American War is still affecting global affairs today. The dominant superpowers of 1898 watched as a new player on the international scene, the United States, shifted its ideology from isolationism to expansionism, and emerged as a force to reckoned with, a true superpower.

The Cuban Crisis

by Adrian Musgrave

Sent with a dual commission from an English newspaper and an American journal, George Clarke Musgrave landed in Cuba “a warm sympathiser with Spain.” For two years, though, he lived and served with the revolutionaries, learned of their cause and experienced their suffering. Appointed as a Captain on General Garcia’s staff, he repeatedly crossed the lines carrying despatches from the insurgent Cuban Government to the Americans. Danger and hardship became his companions and he was twice imprisoned, three times wounded, barely rescued from a spy's death and finally arrested and deported to Spain under threat of execution. Following intervention by the British government he was eventually released from prison in Cadiz, from where he journeyed back to England and on to America to join the...

Nine Years Among the Indians, 1870-1879: The Story of the Captivity and Life of a Texan Among the Indians

by Herman Lehmann

Here is a genuine Little Big Man story, with all the color, sweep, and tragedy of a classic American western. It is the tale of Herman Lehmann, a captive of the Apaches on the Southern Plains of Texas and New Mexico during the 1870s. Adopted by a war chief, he was trained to be a warrior and waged merciless war on Apache enemies, both Indian and Euro-American. After killing an Apache medicine man in self-defense, he fled to a lonely hermitage on the Southern Plains until he joined the Comanches. Against his will, Lehmann was returned to his family in 1879. The final chapters relate his difficult readjustment to Anglo life.Lehmann's unapologetic narrative is extraordinary for its warm embrace of Native Americans and stinging appraisal of Anglo society. Once started, the story of this remark...

So, Like Dude...: What it Was Like Growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the 50's, 60's and 70's

The San Fernando Valley has changed dramatically since I was a kid – as most places have. There are no more horse ranches or orange groves to be seen and many of the places I used to walk past on my way to Robert Fulton Junior High School and Monroe High School, such as the General Motors Plant on Van Nuys Boulevard and the Broadway Department Store, no longer exist. The building that housed Food Giant Market and then Ralph’s Market was also erased by time.In my mind, I remember what the streets and structures and landscapes all looked like as I was growing up through the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. I felt compelled to capture that period of time on paper so others could reminisce along with me. Leaving behind a permanent record of that era, was also important to me. As I revisited...

1918: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 Part 5

by Melina Druga

“And yet, despite the bedlam, the incomparable scenes of joy, there were many solemn scenes. Sober garbed women, whose husbands and sons would never return, stood on the curb, a strange mingling of emotions stirring in them. Old men saw the hand of God in the demonstration, and from hospital cots of pain bed-ridden soldiers raised their wracked bodies to listen, and smiles of contentment sank back on their pillows – ‘thank God, after all, our sacrifices have not been in vain’.”The war ends on Nov. 11, 1918, causing spontaneous and boisterous parties to erupt in cities throughout the United States and Canada. Joy follows the deadliest month in the Spanish Flu Pandemic, a pandemic that would kill more Americans and Canadians than the war.This book is for anyone who has an interes...

A Voice from the Main Deck: Being a Record of the Thirty Years' Adventures of Samuel Leech

by Samuel Leech

Samuel Leech (1798–1848) was a young sailor in the Royal Navy and the United States Navy during the War of 1812. He became notable as one of very few who wrote an account of his experiences, titled, in the manner of the time, "A Voice from the Main Deck".Leech's nautical career began in 1810, at the age of thirteen, when Lord William FitzRoy agreed to take Samuel into his frigate HMS Macedonian.He was a powder monkey during Macedonian's duel with the United States in 1812, and would later vividly describe the carnage on board the British ship before she struck her colors.  He was a prisoner of war but his imprisonment seems not to have been too uncomfortable, and did not last long in any case, since the war ended the following year.Many years later he revisited Macedonian, now a US ship...

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: The War Between the States (Outstanding people and events)

by Almanac History

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR Free BONUS Inside!The Civil War in the United States was a brutal one. It was a serious threat to the young nation of America, because it was a separation of the Northern states from the Southern ones. Although many attribute the causes of the Civil War to the issue of slavery, the actual motives were broader than that. They were political and related to Federal rights vs. States’ rights. Slavery was an outgrowth of that, as it had to do with the rights of states to declare themselves “slave states.”Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn...-A BARBEQUE LAST NIGHT-THEY SECEDED FROM UNION-MAJOR BATTLES I-EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION & THE VICKSBURG CAMPAIGN-MAJOR BATTLES II-THE SCORCHED EARTHScroll up and click “Buy now with 1-Click” to download your copy now!© 2019...

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...
