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.

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...

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...

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.

Molly's Memoir

“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 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...

Targeted Tracks: The Cumberland Valley Railroad in the Civil War, 1861-1865

by Scott L. Mingus

The Civil War was the first conflict in which railroads played a major role. Although much has been written about their role in general, little has been written about specific lines. The Cumberland Valley Railroad, for example, played an important strategic role by connecting Hagerstown, Maryland to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Its location enhanced its importance during some of the Civil War’s most critical campaigns. Despite the line’s significance to the Union war effort, its remarkable story remains little known. The publication of Targeted Tracks: The Cumberland Valley Railroad in the Civil War, 1861-1865, by Scott L. Mingus Sr. and Cooper H. Wingert, rectifies that oversight.Because of its proximity to major cities in the Eastern Theater, the Cumberland Valley Railroad was an entici...

The End of an Era: Mad Men and the Ordeal of Civility

by James J. O'Meara

AMC’s Mad Men (2007–2015) was an instant hit, winning fifteen Golden Globes and four Emmys and “redefining television.” Already a slew of books have appeared to examine its cultural impact. Now comes The End of an Era: Mad Men and the Ordeal of Civility, bringing to the discussion a unique perspective: race realist and Traditionalist. Drawing in equal measure from Kevin MacDonald and René Guénon, and able to marshal a stunning array of pop culture reference points, James J. O’Meara -- himself a child of the ’60s and a product of America’s long-dead industrial heartland -- examines the hidden agendas and social implications of the Mad Man phenomenon. At its center is a bravura, two-part essay analyzing the disintegration of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency as symbolic...

The True Story of Philip Johnston and the Navajo Code Talkers

by Julie McDonald

This short story, I read it to my grandchildren in 20 minutes, is both educational and inspiring. In 1896, Philip Johnston, age 4, arrived on the Navajo Reservation with his parents, William and Maggie. He grew up playing with Navajo children, riding his pony to the trading post, going with his father to visit Navajo families among many other activities. In 1901 William brought Navajo leaders to Washington to plead their case to expand the borders of the reservation. Nine-year-old Philip did all the translating and interpreting between the Navajos and President Theodore Roosevelt. Philip eventually took a job as an engineer in California, but returned to the Navajo Reservation at least once a year to visit family and Navajo friends. When the United States entered World War II after ...

Public Debt, Inequality, and Power: The Making of a Modern Debt State

by Sandy Brian Hager

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Who are the dominant owners of U.S. public debt? Is it widely held, or concentrated in the hands of a few? Does ownership of public debt give these bondholders power over our government? What do we make of the fact that foreign-owned debt has ballooned to nearly 50 percent today? Until now, we have not had any satisfactory answers to these questions. Public Debt, Inequality, and Power is the first comprehensive historical analysis of public debt ownership in the United States. It reveals that ownership of federal bonds has been increasingly concentrated in the hands of the 1 percent over the last three deca...

You are painting a picture of war that few people have or will ever experience. It is important that you do this. I hope that these writings find their way to a larger audience than those of us privileged few who are experiencing them.

Ellington and Armstrong: The Lives and Careers of America’s Most Famous Jazz Performers

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsLouis Armstrong once claimed that “Every time I close my eyes blowing that trumpet of mine—I look right in the heart of good old New Orleans…It has given me something to live for.” This statement conjures an image which most anyone familiar with jazz music can recall: Armstrong clutching his trumpet forcefully, his eyes closed in a manner that distances him from his physical surroundings in favor of a perfect harmony between the man and his instrument. As Armstrong alludes to in this remark, this connection also speaks to the enduring influence of his New Orleans background, which informed his musical style and indeed continued to live on through his music. To be sure, wh...

Trade War: Future War Looming Between The US And China And The Effects On The Modern World (Trade War,Future War,United States, China,Russia,Donald Trump,Modern ... World, Politics,Vladimir Putin,Xi J

by Aryeh Ksah

Dawn Of The World War III?!!!Throughout history, trade wars have been common, but with most instances being between China and US. Up to date, the US has launched the famous “Section 301 investigations” since 1991 against China, specifically probing into the areas of unfair trade barriers, intellectual property rights and clean energy. During these investigations (in the past), both countries have naturally turned to tariffs as their means of retaliation. Nonetheless, these conflicts ended up being resolved through diplomatic means (such as using WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism to settle a compromise).Before the most recent round of investigation that triggered the current wave of eruptions, the last investigation was done in September 2010. The Obama administration began an invest...

There Were No Cats in America: "An American Tail" Enters Trump’s America

by Adam M. DeSimone

Using the 1986 animated film “An American Tail” as a framing device, this work explores the immigrant experience of émigrés who lived in the United States during the Gilded Age. While the film itself celebrates the arrival of the furry, lovable, Mousekewitz family to the U.S., this essay comments on the evolution of U.S. immigration policy from the late 19th to early 21st centuries, with special attention paid to the National Origins Act, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and to President Trump’s 2017 “Muslim bans.” Major push and pull factors associated with immigration are examined as well; a comparison between the socioeconomic conditions of the Gilded Age and modern era follow. In this essay, the author argues that the Trump administration’s views on immigration are similar to t...
