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...

Native American History: A History from Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Native American History* * *Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.Until surprisingly recently, most history books noted that America was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus. The truth was that by the time that Columbus arrived in America, people had been living there for more than 12,000 years. During this time, the indigenous people of North America lived without contact with other continents. Different groups developed separate and distinct ways of life, cultures, and societies but all shared one common characteristic: they relied on the land to provide them with food, and they developed a series of religions that, while separate, shared a respect for nature and imbued many animals and natural features with spiritual characte...

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

by David Brion Davis

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...

by Hourly History

American Revolution
The American Revolution, which took place between 1765 and 1783, was an uprising by British colonists in North America against the rule of Great Britain. The colonists were fighting for rights they felt they deserved, not only as British citizens, but as human beings. The belief that rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were God given and not dependent upon any government or ruler gave the revolutionaries the courage to fight against overwhelming odds and eventually win their freedom.

The Music of Us: WWII love story (Still Life with Memories Book 3)

by Uvi Poznansky

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

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.

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...

Washington State: Counties - Towns & People, Part I

by Joseph L. Gavett

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...

Marbury v Madison: Justice or Politics: John Marshall's political assault on the rule of law

by Marc Garrett

John Marshall is today the most revered of our Supreme Court justices, but a closer look at his iconic Marbury v Madison reveals Marshall just as political as any man of his day if not more so, and that history has been kind to his legacy. (disclaimer: This is not a book, but rather an essay investigating the reasoning used by Marshall in Marbury, and exposing his biases and flaws that have been almost completely extinguished by history.)...

History of the War with Mexico

by Horatio Ladd

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...

Charles Ponzi and the Ponzi Scheme: The History and Legacy of 20th Century America’s Most Famous Con Artist

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“I went looking for trouble, and I found it.” – Charles Ponzi Though few people are familiar with the story of his life, Charles Ponzi’s name is almost instantly recognizable thanks to the famous financial scandal named after him. This is somewhat ironic because, while his last name has become synonymous with financial scandal and many recognize how a Ponzi scheme works, some have argued that Ponzi really did not know what he was doing while it was taking place. When reading many of the books and articles written about him, it does seem as though Ponzi believed he would be able to pay back his investors at one point or another. In fact, the scheme that Ponzi created was not a new one – it w...

*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...

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 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...
