Memorial Address Upon the Life of General James Green Martin Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Memorial Address Upon the Life of General James Green Martin: Delivered at Raleigh, N. C., May 10, 1916 President of the Ladies Memorial Asociation, Ladies and Gentlemen: Fifty years and one have fled since wreathed around with cypress and with laurel the chosen banner of a great people passed into history. No banner was ever borne by braver soldiery nor sustained by generals of greater genius or by any people with more devotion. But Fortune that name for the unknown combinations of an infinite power was wanting to us, and without her aid the designs of man are as bubbles on a troubled ocean. Once 8 millions of the great Anglo Saxon race hailed that banner with gladness. But when it passed, it passed forever, without hope that it should come again, for "its people's hopes were dead." Yet, we see what the world has never seen before - from one end to the other of the land over which it waved, from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, from the Gulf to the great rivers of the North, the Ohio and the Mississippi, countless monuments stand in perpetual memorial of the valor of the soldiers that bore it, and on these recurring anniversaries we meet with music and with flowers and with beauty, in memory of the "storm cradled nation that fell" and to honor those who were faithful, even unto death. The world shows nothing else like it. In historic England there are possibly a dozen or more monuments to commemorate great victories won in her great island story of a thousand years.

In 2011, the world will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Queen - one of the most innovative, glamorous, and influential bands in history. Over the course of the band's career, they have grossed 170 million album sales worldwide, have written 18 number one hits, and performed 700 concerts. While some acts enjoy a forte of incredible showmanship, a virtuoso instrumentalist, a strong, charismatic leader, or a prolific sole songwriter, Queen beholds all of these strengths. Although Freddie Mercury and Brian May are recognized as the prime songwriters, each of the members have penned number one hits, including classics such as "Bohemian Rhapsody" (Freddie Mercury), "Another One Bites the Dust" (John Deacon), "A Kind of Magic" (Roger Taylor), and "We Will Rock You" (Brian May). The fates brought the four creative and cerebral youths together in London in 1971 (Mercury was by then an established fine and graphic artist, May was enveloped in the study of astrophysics, Roger Taylor enrolled in dental school, and John studying electronics). Since then, they have made history with their sophisticated fusion of operatic expression, theatrical performance, symphonic melody, and raw rock-and- roll. Beginning with their debut Queen in 1973 (EMI/Electra Records), the band took the UK by storm, then conquered the United States along with rest of the world, serving as pioneers of stadium rock and enjoying commercial success and momentum well into the 1980s (marked by the famous Live Aid appearance in 1985) through the early 1990s. The whirlwind took a startling pause when singer Freddie Mercury passed away from AIDS on November 24, 1991. The living members have forged ahead and remain great music makers until this day. "The Complete Illustrated Lyrics" is the first book of its kind. Never before has there been a complete Queen lyric book. The hundreds of images that accompany the songs range from handwritten lyrics to rare photographs from the stage to the studio. Also included is a complete discography of the band, pairing each song to the album on which it was originally released. Designed by the band's longtime creative director, Richard Gray, this book is as true to the band as can be, carrying with it the flamboyance, expression, and depth that Queen embodies as writers and performers. If there is one book for a fan of the band to possess, this is the one.

Steamie Black and White Publishing

When it first opened in 1987, The Steamie took the theatrical world by storm. Set during the 1950s, the play takes place on Hogmanay in a Glasgow public wash house or 'Steamie'. As the washing is done, four women sing, laugh and cry their way through the last working day of that year, with a little help from the increasingly not so handy Andy. Portraying a way of life in the midst of change, The Steamie fast became a firm favourite with people of all ages up and down the land and, to this day, its popularity shows no signs of waning. Half a century on, the way we work may have changed but, whenever the play is staged, it can still strike a chord of recognition in members of the audience and have them rolling in the aisles with laughter one moment and wiping away a tear the next. he novel The Steamie delves further into the lives of Doreen, Magrit, Mrs Culfeather and Dolly. It also brings some of the lively characters that only get a passing mention in the play more to the forefront. As the women get on with their washing, we eavesdrop on Magrit's man who has her 'up to high doh' most of the time as he will 'neither work nor want'. We come to understand why the bad behaviour of her two laddies will be the death of her. And we also meet her daughter who, happily for Magrit, is a lovely wee lassie and provides welcome relief from the troubles the males in her family are always bringing her. We are introduced to Mrs Culfeather's husband, Harry. Over the years, life hasn't treated Harry very kindly but he reminds us that there can be laughter in spite of the struggle that was life in those days. Then there's Doreen's other half, John, and, last but certainly not least, Dolly's family also make an appearance. The Steamie is a hilarious yet, at times, also deeply moving cameo of Glasgow's social history. The washing was always easier to do when joys and sorrows were shared and, of course, time passed much more quickly when the supply of scandalous gossip was as endless as the pile of dirty clothes!

Memorial Address Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Memorial Address: By Hon. J. Sloat Fassett on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, May 30, 1910 Today is a day of remembrance all over this broad land. Thousands of Americans are gathering together to show their love and honor for their soldier dead. They are recalling the stirring events that led us to a deadly war fifty years ago. There rises in retrospect a clearer view of the true meaning of the conflicts of those days than was possible for us to have at the moment they occurred. The color of passion and prejudice has faded; the bitterness of personal bias has sweetened; minds inflamed with the wrath which moved men to slaughter have recovered their normal calm and judgment. The storm was terrific. The tempest was sublime. The destruction was appalling. The suffering was unspeakable. But these things passed away and now what was then seen but dimly, being obscured by the very violence of contest, stands revealed in all its beautiful proportions.

Freedom of Speech and the Espionage ACT Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Freedom of Speech and the Espionage Act: Address Before the New Jersey State Bar Association at Atlantic City, N. J., June 18, 1921 Among the rights connoted by the term Anglo-Saxon Civil Liberty none is more vital to our institutions than that which prohibits our national legislature from making any law "abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press." This clause was not at first contained in the Constitution because the framers, and particularly Hamilton, thought it related to a matter regulated by common law and that the power to deal with it had not been delegated. But the demand of the State Conventions could not be resisted, and the provision became a part of the first of the ten Amendments. Many of the prohibitions of these Amendments, usually referred to as the Bill of Rights, have never been resorted to. They have stood as mute, if glorious, testimony of guaranties extorted by our race from its rulers during centuries of contest and struggle; and they have served as a potential agency warning against encroachment by the State upon the rights of the individual. Thus, seldom has any attempt by any department of our national government been made to place a limit upon the freedom of oral or written expression. The first attempt, at a time of supposed national stress, led to the passage of the Sedition Law of 1798, which, with the Alien Law, met such a storm of opposition as to lead to the disastrous defeat, indeed to the disintegration of the Federalist party. The agitation against these laws undoubtedly involved a warning against any invasion of the right of free speech. But scrutiny of the proceedings of the State Legislatures of the several States, notably the extraordinary debate in the House of Delegates of Virginia; the able and exhaustive report to the House of Delegates of Virginia written by Mr. Madison, in reply to resolutions passed by the Legislatures of other States; the Kentucky resolutions of 1798 prepared by Mr. Jefferson, and other contemporary evidence, must convince the candid student of history that the defeat and destruction of the Federalist party were due, not so much to the contention that a violation of the First Amendment was threatened, as to the view, then regarded as of far greater importance, that the States had not delegated to the Federal Government the power to legislate upon the subject at all. It was the first great political battle involving the question of implied powers. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Fighting Joe Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Fighting Joe: Or the Fortunes of a Staff Officer; A Story of Great Rebellion This volume, the fifth of "The Army and Navy Stories," is not a biography of the distinguished soldier whose sobriquet in the army has been chosen as its principal title, though the prominent incidents of his military career are noticed in its pages. The writer offers his humble tribute of admiration to the energetic and devoted general who will be recognized under the appellation given to this work; but perhaps the object of the volume may be better represented by the second title. It follows Tom Somers, "The Soldier Boy" and "The Young Lieutenant," in his brilliant and daring career as a staff officer, through some of the most stormy and trying scenes of the late war. As in the volumes of the series which have preceded it, the best sources of information upon military events have been carefully consulted; and to the extent to which the book is properly historical, it is intended to be faithful in its delineations. But the work is more correctly a record of personal adventure, no more complicated, daring, and romantic than may be found in the experience of many, who, through trial and tribulation, through victory and defeat, have passed from the inception to the gigantic failure of this gigantic rebellion.

Top steam journeys of the world NEW HOLLAND PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Less than 50 years ago, trains were routinely hauled by majestic steam-powered locomotives. These magnificent machines still exercise a powerful hold on our imagination, conjuring up the romance of old-fashioned rail travel and the excitement of human ingenuity pitted against the challenges of narrow passes, tight bends and fearsome gradients. Although the heyday of steam has passed, it is still possible to travel on preserved lines, heritage railways and industrial lines where steam traction is still in use. Many of these journeys have been made possible by the dedicated efforts of steam enthusiasts, who have struggled to acquire, keep open and refurbish routes that railway companies had earmarked for closure. This book profiles 26 of these remarkable journeys, ranging from the popular Ffestiniog Railway in northern Wales to the Changa Manga Forest Railway of Pakistan. Each chapter sketches the story behind the journey and details the locomotives that are in use, illustrated throughout with spectacular photography. It covers the Americas: Alberta Prairie Steam Tours (Canada) by Anthony Lambert; Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield Railway (Canada) by Pierre Home-Douglas; Cass Scenic Railroad (United States) by Steve Barry; Grand Canyon Railway (United States) by Steve Barry; Steamtown National Historic Site (United States) by Steve Barry; Mount Washington Cog Railway (United States) by Steve Barry; Guayaquil & Quito Railway (Ecuador) by John Parker; and, The Old Patagonian Express (Argentina) by Carl G.
