<em><b>'Twice during the night I awoke, and could hear the groans and cries of the wounded lying out there on that bloody field. Some cried for water, others for some one to come and help them. Many years have passed since that terrible day and night, yet when my mind reverts to that time, I can hear those poor fellows crying for water. God heard them, for the heavens were opened and the rain came…'</b></em><br /><br />Originally published in 1915, this volume was conceived as a response to the younger generation of the mid-nineteenth century’s increasingly urgent wish to understand the events of the Civil War. Wilbur F. Crummer, a personal acquaintance of General U. S. Grant and one of the ‘Boys in Blue’ who fought at many of the great battles of the Civil War, retells from personal experience the history of the devastating upheaval. <br /><br /><em>With Grant at Fort Donelson</em> presents a vivid and stirring account of the military action – and genius – of the years 1862 to 1863, using a broad range of contemporary source material as well as that collected in the years following the conflict. Unlike many other military histories, Crummer writes with a brilliant style that emulates the most sparkling prose fiction. His use of dialogue is a particularly stunning invitation for readers to experience intimate thoughts and feelings of the ‘Boys in Blue’ during testing times. Reading this history is a truly immersive experience, its cultural significance is undeniable and an absolute must-read.<br /><br /><br /><b>Albion Press is an imprint of Endeavour Press, the UK's leading independent digital publisher.

<h2>Explore the Fascinating Life of Jackie Kennedy</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />Without a doubt, the name Jackie Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind; she is, perhaps, most well-known in her service as the first lady of the United States, as her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and her role in restoring the White House. Then, of course, other people remember Jacqueline for her role in the fashion industry, particularly her pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat, which became a symbol of her husband’s assassination. <br /><br />Jackie is so renowned and beloved that she ranks as one of the most popular first ladies. In fact, Jacqueline was named in 1999 on Gallup’s list of Most Admired Men and Women in twentieth-century America. While she made major impacts on the White House, Jackie was much more than her title as first lady.<br /><br /><h2>Some of the topics covered in this book include:</h2><br /><ul><li>Childhood and Early Education</li><li>College and Early Career</li><li>The Relationship with John F. Kennedy</li><li>Motherhood</li><li>Campaign for Presidency</li><li>First Lady</li><li>The Kennedy Assassination</li><li>Life Following the Assassination</li><li>Ongoing Iconic Figure</li><li>And a Great Deal More that You don't Want to Miss out on!</li></ul><h2>Scroll to the top and download the book for instant access!</h2>
The Federalist Papers (Illustrated)

Product Description
Customer Reviews
The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles advocating the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven of the essays were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist, was published in 1788 by J. and A. McLean.<br /><br />The Federalist Papers serve as a primary source for interpretation of the Constitution, as they outline the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of government. The authors of the Federalist Papers wanted to both influence the vote in favor of ratification and shape future interpretations of the Constitution. According to historian Richard B. Morris, they are an "incomparable exposition of the Constitution, a classic in political science unsurpassed in both breadth and depth by the product of any later American writer."

In the little village of Scrooby in England, three hundred years ago, stood a beautiful old house.<br />It was the largest one in the village, and its moss-covered roof and great red chimneys rose high above the cottages about it.<br />The house stood close to the street, but behind it was a large garden where many bright flowers bloomed, and a row of tall trees cast their pleasant shade. On one side of the garden were three round ponds. For a hundred years these ponds had never failed to supply fish for the Friday dinner.<br />A great rosebush clung to the walls of the house. For years it had climbed and climbed, until now some of its clustering red blossoms peeped into one of the upper windows. The whole room was sweet with their fragrance. This old house had once been a fine palace, but now it was used as an inn where travelers might stay for the night.<br />In the stables beyond the garden were some horses belonging to the king. When his messengers carried his letters to the North Country, they always stopped here to change horses and rest for an hour.<br />Only a few miles from Scrooby was a famous old forest. Every child in the village knew the story of Robin Hood and his merry men who had once lived in this forest. They often played "Robin Hood;" it was the game they liked best of all...<br />

The history of the western hemisphere begins rather with South America than with North America. Students of United States history are familiar with the life of Christopher Columbus and his finding of the New World. Although he pointed the way for European nations to found valuable colonies in North America, there was an interval of a hundred and fifteen years between Columbus's discovery in 1492 and the first English settlement in 1607. In this period much history was made in South America. Spain and Portugal established rich colonies on the southern continent. They built cities and developed a valuable commerce that not only enriched Spain and Portugal but created commercial and political centers in South America rivaling in importance many of the cities of Europe. Students naturally ask how it happened that Spain and Portugal gained such an advantage in the sixteenth century over England, France, and the other European nations and why it was that they established colonies in South America rather than in North America.<br />In the fifteenth century, many cities on or near the Mediterranean Sea developed a rich trade with India, and goods brought from Asia were sold throughout Europe. This commerce made these cities rich and powerful. But in the last half of the fifteenth century the Turks captured Constantinople. Moors had long before conquered the southern part of Spain. Having also taken possession of western Asia, through which the trade lines ran between Europe and India, the Turks made it exceedingly difficult for the cities of southern Europe to continue their commerce with the East. This caused distress to Europe and forced the traders to seek other routes to India...<br />
