Whiskey stocks were broken into and the streets ran with liquor. Factories, arsenals and mills were ordered destroyed, some were blown up, and others were burned. The fires were soon out of control.

Star-Crossed: A Quantitative Reassessment of the Relative Combat Performance of the Army of Tennessee Compared to the Army of Northern Virginia

Everyone KNOWS the Army of Northern Virginia was a "winner" and its sister army, the Army of Tennessee was a "loser," right?In his book, Two Great Rebel Armies: An Essay in Confederate Military History, Richard M. McMurry draws the somewhat controversial conclusion that Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was not only the better led army, but that the composition of Lee's army indeed made it the better army, when compared with its Western sister, the Army of Tennessee.While few historians would beg to differ with the first conclusion - the likes of Bragg, Polk, Hardee and Hood simply do not compare with the leadership offered by Lee, Jackson and Longstreet - historians have generally not cared to examine the potential for a more fundamental reason for the success of the one army, and the fai...

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...
