Ulysses S. Grant : warrior, president( Visual )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest Union hero of the Civil War, General Ulysses S. Grant was a brilliant military strategist whose ruthlessness earned him the nickname "Unconditional Surrender." His victory at Vicksburg, which irrevocably changed the course of the war, won him the admiration of the North and the undying respect of Abraham Lincoln. Grant was a leader for whom thousands of Northern soldiers were willing to fight and die, and for whom thousands did. Perhaps most memorably, he was the general who took Lee's surrender at Appomattox, and the author of its generous terms for peace. The story of Grant's record in the White House is less triumphant. For two terms, as his presidency was rocked by scandal and economic depression, Grant struggled to define the meaning of the war he had fought so hard to win, and the Union he had fought to preserve. While not overlooking Grant's many failings, this film reappraises Grant's career, from his pre-Civil War days as a failed soldier haunted by rumors of drunkenness, to his last hours, when he raced to finish his war memoirs as he was dying of cancer. It argues that the 18th president was an honorable man, who tried to keep promises made to African Americans and who managed to keep the country together in the face of deep divisions

In June 1900, Major Walter Reed, Chief Surgeon of the U.S. Army, led a medical team to Cuba on a mission to investigate yellow fever. For more than two hundred years the disease had terrorized the United States, killing an estimated 100,000 people in the 19th century alone. Shortly after Reed and his team arrived in Havana they began testing the radical theories of a Cuban doctor, Carlos Finlay, who believed that mosquitoes spread yellow fever. This production documents the heroic efforts of Reed, s medical team to verify Finlay's theory. Eventually their discovery enabled the United States to successfully eradicate the disease among workers constructing the Panama Canal, making possible the completion of one of the most strategic waterways in the world. When yellow ever struck New Orleans in 1905, federal public health officials launched an aggressive mosquito eradication campaign and successfully ended the epidemic. It was the last yellow fever outbreak in the United States, and the first major public health triumph of the 20th century

Reagan : an American story by Adriana Bosch( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book Reagan, is the first of a series of six titles to be developed directly from the films of The American Experience. Ronald Reagan, the fortieth president of the United States, held office from January 1981 to January 1989 -- eight highly eventful, crucial years, a time of high prosperity and painful recession, of much star-spangled optimism and the terrible, over-hanging fear that the world might be blown to pieces. It was then, too, that the Cold War all but ended, a turning point in history, the importance of which can hardly be overstated. What distinguishes this book and film project are the exclusive interviews with so many protagonists in the drama, including Mikhail Gorbachev, as well as members of the President's own family: Nancy, Maureen, Ron and Patti. Indeed, this is the first film biography of Ronald Reagan in which his family agreed to appear. - Foreword
