Peter Stuyvesant : New Amsterdam and the origins of New York by L. J Krizner( Recording )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Stuyvesant - Legends abound about the character, temperament, and wooden leg of the last director-general of New Amsterdam, fueled primarily by Washington Irving's satirical A History of New York. Krizner and Sita set the record straight here and address other misconceptions about the early days of the colony. Indeed, historical evidence does not support the legend of the 24-dollar purchase of Manhattan Island. Stuyvesant did, however, rule with an "iron fist," but loved New Amsterdam and its people, staying on after the colony fell to the English. To this day, street, neighborhood, and borough names (Broadway, Harlem, the Bronx, and Brooklyn), and the popularity of some foods (pretzels), reflect the early Dutch influence in New York
Nathan Hale : patriot and martyr of the American Revolution by L. J Krizner( Recording )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathan Hale regretted that he only had one life to lose for his country. Those words spoken by him just prior to his execution by the British in 1776, speak to the spirit of patriotism that was the battle cry of the American Revolution. Rights and freedoms that today's American students relegate to the dusty world of history are seen as life-and-death issues through the lens of young soldiers and citizens in the throes of a revolution
