Lost men of American history by Stewart H Holbrook( Book )

26 editions published between 1946 and 1969 in English and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Mr. Holbrook has dredged our past from 1620 to Pearl Harbor for important figures who have contributed to America's development, but who, because of the passage of time or the vagaries of history, are now obscure and forgotten. Although their names may be unknown, these men and women reveal the pattern of our national genius--a genius for the unconventional that no other nation can match. That is why they make a truly fascinating parade in the pages of this book. Among them are Christopher Ludwick, the Philadelphia baker who persuaded Hessians to desert their British employers; David Bushnell, inventor of a primitive submarine; Jehudi Ashmun, the founder of Liberia; Samuel Colt, inventor of the Colt revolver and the early process of interchangeable parts; Frederic Tudor, the Ice King, who should by rights be declared patron saint of the drug store soda fountain; Mrs. Bloomer, who had other claims to fame besides the invention of a garment for female limbs--and a host of other interesting and forgotten people

Harry Orchard devoted most of his early life to lawlessness and crime on a fantasically large scale. As the hired assassin of the Western Federation of Miners, he blasted a trail of violence through the West, ending in the 1905 bomb-slaying of a former Idaho governor. Orchard's skill with dynamite and the fearful results of this talent produced some colorful pages of Americana that, up to now, have escaped the history books. This is more than just the story of Harry Orchard, however. It is also the story of the Western Federation of Miners, of William "Big Bill" Harwood, a onetime idol of American labor, and the organization of the Industrial Workers of the World by Haywood before he fled to the Soviet Union. Stewart Halbrook writes of the labor conditions that led to violence in the hardrock, first in the mines of Northern Idaho and later in the Cripple Creek region and the San Juans of Colorado. Time and again Orchard sparked new violence in the hope of winning the approval of Haywood and the other union leaders. By the time Orchard had killed twenty men or more, there was so much fear, hate, and violence in the hardrock mining towns that the Western Federation of Miners was doomed. Harry Orchard's last assignment, the dynamiting of former Governor Steunenberg of Idaho, put the Western Federation of Miners out of business. Orchard was persuaded to confess his crimes and turn state's evidence. In one of the great courtroom dramas of all times, Clarenece Darrow defended Haywood and one of the prosecutors was William E. Borah, then newly elected to the United States Senate
