The Supreme Court( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as the court of last resort, the Supreme Court, where nine judges appointed for life make monumental decisions that govern our everyday lives, from the contents of the nation's daily newspapers to what we can do in the privacy of our own homes. With immense power and considerable mystery, the court of final appeal has helped author the history of America. One nation under law: Examines the creation of the court and follows it through the brink of the Civil War, paying particular attention to the fourth chief justice, John Marshall, and his successor, Roger Taney. A new kind of justice: Explores the issues before the court from the aftermath of the Civil War through the 1930s. This was a period of unprecedented economic growth as the nation industrialized but was also a time of unregulated work conditions. A nation of liberties: Focuses on the court's reaction to state and federal legislation on Bill of Rights freedoms, with special attention to the explosion of civil rights cases from the early 1940s to the present. The Rehnquist revolution: Details the court from the election of President Richard Nixon, through to the more recent Court of today. During this period one man put his stamp on the institution and solidified and enhanced the power of the Court in the modern era
Transcontinental railroad( Visual )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, Utah, a boisterous crowd gathered to witness the completion of one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century: the building of the transcontinental railroad. The electrifying moment--the realization of a dream first pursued by a farsighted and determined engineer decades earlier--marked the culmination of six years of grueling work. Peopled by the ingenious entrepreneurs whose unscrupulous financing got the line laid, the brilliant engineers who charted the railroad's course and hurdled the geological obstacles in its way, the armies of workers who labored relentlessly on the enterprise, and the Native Americans whose lives were destroyed in its wake, this film presents a remarkable story of greed, innovation, and gritty determination. It reveals both why the railroad was built and how it would shape the nation, while shedding light on the politics and culture of mid-nineteenth century America

One of the most-recognized figures in American literary history: poet, patriot, and faithful advocate of democracy. But in his own time, critics denounced Walt Whitman as a "lunatic raving in pitiable delirium". This "American experience" production tells Whitman's life story, from his working class childhood in Long Island to his years as a newspaper reporter in Brooklyn when he struggled to support his impoverished family, then to his reckless pursuit of the attention and affection he craved for his work, to his death in 1892 at the age of 72

In the early 20th century, the U.S. Navy dominated Hawaii. Most Americans thought of the islands as a Pacific paradise, but in 1931, a dark incident shattered the tranquil veneer of the islands and exposed growing racial tensions.

In the trial that followed, celebrity attorney Clarence Darrow offered an impassioned defense on behalf of the husband, calling the murder an "honor killing."

This biography separates myth from reality and presents an unforgettable portrait of?The Kid?s brief and violent life
Wyatt Earp( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a young man, Wyatt Earp was a caricature of the Western lawman, spending his days drinking in saloons, gambling, and visiting brothels. He gained notoriety as the legendary gunman in the shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, but shortly after his death in 1929, distressed Americans down on their luck transformed Wyatt Earp into a folk hero. In the tradition of Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, and other AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Western histories, Wyatt Earp examines an ordinary man's role in that larger-than-life story, and how he became the legend that lives on today"--Container
