Excerpt


Lincoln was born into the first generation of rapid change generated by the Industrial Revolution. The only president to receive a patent, he understood the technology of his time and used it to his advantage during the Civil War, in the process waging the first "modern war." Using a telegraph for fast communication, approved ironclad warships, launched surveillance balloons, was interested in rapid-fire guns, and using railroads for transport, Lincoln employed new advancements that created a vision for the benefits of progress and technology. 144 indexed pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Discover the real story!

Throughout this nation's history, many of its greatest leaders believed that America's future was inextricably linked to America's faith in God. This mighty nation, now known as The United States of America, was born from the dream of people who envisioned a sovereign state where people could be free and only God would be their king.

This dream of "One Nation Under God" would mean freedom from the rule of human monarchs and tyrants, but would also extol a large price for these original "founders" of this great country. Nothing short of a miracle, the dream prevailed and this new nation came to be. But slowly, a long season of spiritual apathy crept over the land like a fog. The dream was forgotten and the nation's relationship with benevolent God extinguished.

This intriguing and artful book will re-awaken the original dream within the hearts of young and old alike. Filled cover to cover with exquisite artwork depicting the original scenes, along with in-depth historical facts woven throughout, this book will enlighten and educate all to the wonderful and rich history of this "One Nation Under God." For ages 9 to 12.

Excerpt


Gain a complete understanding of the players involved in World War II; stepping far away from the glory-filled praises of the Allies during World War II, "Uncle Eric" recounts the atrocities committed by Stalin (who killed twice as many people as Hitler), the British (who hunted Aborigines in Australia and set up concentration camps in S. Africa), and Americans (against Native Americans). Exposure of "Anglo-Saxonism", and Hitler's death tolls of Jews, minorities, and other political dissenters provide a wide-angle view of the Old World Conflict that began after a complex mix of the effects of the Treaty of Versailles and a long history of European conquests. Offering a different perspective on American involvement, World War II presents evidence that Roosevelt deliberately provoked the Pearl Harbor attack, that Hitler was already finished when America went to war, and other reasons why American neutrality should never have been abandoned. 349 indexed pages, softcover.
