Eye of the storm : a Civil War odyssey by Robert Knox Sneden( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eye of the Storm is one of the most important Civil War documents to be published since Ulysses S. Grant's Personal Memoirs. Four tattered scrapbooks found in a Connecticut bank vault in 1994 yielded a treasure trove of more than five hundred watercolors that vividly depict America's great national drama. These scrapbooks - plus a five-thousand-page illustrated memoir that came to light later - are the life's achievement of a long-forgotten Union private and mapmaker named Robert Knox Sneden."

Imperfect past : history in a new light by Charles F Bryan( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History occupies a paradoxical and problematic place in contemporary American culture. Numerous commentators argue that we face a growing crisis of historical amnesia, and that Americans do not value and support history as much as previous generations. They worry that history is not being properly taught. Historian Charles Bryan disagrees. "Never before have people done as much to collect, preserve, and share their history on such a scale as have Americans," he writes. This contrarian view of the state of history in the United States should come as no surprise to the thousands of readers of his regular columns in the Richmon Times-Dispatch. Since 1992, Bryan has published nearly eighty essays on a variety of topics, but mostly history. Read a few of them, and it becomes obvious that the history we learn today is different from what our grandparents were taught. A once simple story has become mmore complex. More provocative. More compelling. [This book] is a compilation of all of his essays, organized in nine sections that demonstrate that history is, indeed, more compelling. Bryan is a specialist in Civil War history, and nearly twenty percent of his essays cover that crucial event in the American experience, from the role of slavery in causing the war to its horrendous cost in lives. Other essagys cover a wide range of topics and are organized under headings such as "Virginia and the American South," "The Way Things Were," "Heroes and Villains," "The Living and the Dead," and a dozen insightful essays derived from his long and distinguished career as a public historian. Readers of Imperfect Past will learn how air-conditioning transformed the South; how winter was once a matter of life and death; why people live longer now; how one of our nation's most infamous villains captured and burned Richmond; how ten books changed the course of American history; why a former Olympic athlete was called "the man who saved Christmas;" what makes great teachers great; why George Washington was on of our best military commanders; and numerous other subjects that will help readers see the past and the present in a new light. Imperfect Past has something for almost anyone who loves history and appreciates it from different perspectives. -- Inside jacket flaps

The impact of WWII was felt in every corner of the globe. It set in motion forces that would transform Virginia and return it to the American mainstream. For the 300,000 Virginians who served in uniform, the war was an intensely personal experience. More than 7,000 would make the ultimate sacrifice. "A Generation of Warriors" tells the compelling stories of some of these combat veterans. From Pearl Harbor through the climactic final battles, from the perspectives of land, sea, and air, they share the drama and emotions of this gripping period of history
