As good as gone by Larry Watson( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Calvin Sidey is a cowboy of the old-school, no-guff sort--steely, hardened, with his own personal code. It's the 1960s, and he's living off the grid in a stifling trailer on the prairie when his adult son, Bill, seeks his help. A mostly absentee father, and a virtual no-show as a grandfather, Calvin nevertheless reluctantly agrees to stay with his grandchildren for a week. He decamps for his son's dark and musty basement, to the small town where he once was a mythic figure, and soon enough problems arise: a boy's attentions to seventeen-year-old Ann are increasingly aggressive, and a group of reckless kids portend danger for eleven-year-old Will. Calvin only knows one way to solve a problem: the Old West way, in which scores are settled, ultimatums are issued, and your gun is always loaded. In the changing culture of the 1960s, Calvin isn't just a relic, he's a wild card and a threat. With the crisp, restrained prose for which Larry Watson is revered, As Good As Gone is moving without being sentimental, a powerful story of a man increasingly at odds with the world. This is Larry Watson at his best."--

Blacks in the integrated army of the American Revolution : (for life liberty and the pursuit of happiness) by Larry Watson( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many, who study the history of our Army, focus on a period in the mid-twentieth century as the time when the Army was integrated. The focal point is the signing of Presidential Executive Order 9981 in 1948 by Harry S. Truman. Though commonly held as pivotal point in the era of the modern Army this is a historical misconception. This line of thought over looks and dilutes the historical involvement of integrated units in the American Revolutionary War. Blacks have been involved in fighting this nation's wars, before there was a standing national army. This project will provide insights on the presence of Blacks in the Army of the Revolutionary War period. It will examine the political climate of the period that first denied then allowed Blacks to enter the Army. It will cover elements of how Blacks came to serve, the number who served and characterize their service. It will also provide some information on the three so called Black units that served during this period
