    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    Over 100 years ago, J.P. Dunn wrote Massacres of the Mountains in an attempt to separate historical fact from sensational fiction and to verify the problems that plagued the Indian tribes in this country for years. He doesn't assign blame, but lets it fall where it belongs by meticulous research and the accurate, unbiased depiction of the true causes and subsequent results of some of the most famous Indian conflicts.

  • Army Life in a Black Regiment
    Army Life in a Black Regiment

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    "Army Life in a Black Regiment has some claim to be the best written narrative to come from the Union [side] during the Civil War," wrote historian Henry Steele Commander. "Higginson's picture of the battle which was the origin of 'praise the Lord and pass the ammunition' and his reading of the Emancipation Proclamation to the black regiment are unsurpassed for eloquence." A Union colonel wrote this book--originally a series of essays-- from New England, in charge of black troops training on the Sea Islands off the coast of the Carolinas. A lively and detailed wartime diary, it offers a refreshing portrait of life in the Union Army as the narrator captures the raw humor that develops among the men in combat. His portraits of the soldiers, routines of camp life, and southern landscapes are unforgettable. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Fields, Osgood, & Co, 1870. Appendices. Index.

  • Industrial Sites of Great Britain
    Industrial Sites of Great Britain

    $8.55

    Document Overview:
    Two hundred years ago the British Isles would have been a serious competitor in any branch of industry, but that situation has gradually changed with the developing world. Now too much of our landscape is littered with disused mines, silent mills, empty factories, and the ruinous remains of once thriving plants. Fortunately, recent trends have been to preserve our industrial heritage and re-package them as working museums to give future generations the opportunity of realising who put the 'Great' into Britain. This volume explores 30 such properties, each article comprising of a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable).

    Manor Houses of Great Britain - Volume One

    $8.55

    Document Overview:
    Little evidence of everyday life in Britain during the Middle Ages has survived, with the exception of the manor house. Today there are perhaps some 300 examples of this type of late medieval country house throughout the country, many of which have evolved from the ancient ‘aisled hall’. The selection of 30 properties contained in this volume have been well preserved, and many will be familiar even if not previously considered a ‘manor house’ in the strictest sense. Each article comprises a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable) NB - The 'Adobe Reader' version of this title is not suitable for use with 'Adobe Reader for PalmOS'.
