 John Adams by David McCullough
We are honored to offer this Pulitzer Prize winning, and TIME magazine "Best Nonfiction Book of the Year." This is a history on a grand scale–a book about politics and war and social issues; but also about himan naure, love, religioius faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, John Adams is an enthralling, often surprising stor of one of the most importane and fascinating Americans who ever lived. Includes a conversation with the author.

 The Rockets Red Glare by Donald R. Hickey & Connie D. Clark
A foremost expert and author of several books on the War of 1812, Professor Donald R. Hickey has teamed up with Ms. Clark to produce this exciting and fast- moving depiction of America's second war against Great Britain. It starts with the political wrangling and riots in Baltimore that led up to the fighting, then recounts the battles and campaigns, from William Hull's ignominious surrender at Detroit, Oliver Perry's surprising victory on Lake Erie, the death of Shawnee leader Tecumseh which made General William Henry Harrison nationally famous, the night-long attack on Fort McHenry which spawned the book's title and our national anthem, to Andrew Jackson's, to Andrew Jackson's stunning victory at New Orleans.

   This book has some information about the Army that is hard to find in any Army history tome, specifically The Provisional Army and the Eventual Army.

 The United States Infantry - An Illustrated History 1775 - 1918
by Gregory J. W. Urwin; Illustrated by Darby Erd
The title is a bit deceiving. Actually, the American army began when the English set up their colony in Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 and set up a militia to fight the Indians. It became more organized in 1758 with the onset of the French and Indian War. Congress officially established the U.S. Army in 1775, placing George Washington in overall command. This brief, lively narrative not only covers the strategy and tactics of the Army, but delves into the politics and congressional involvement in its development. More than 30 detailed, full-color illustrations show the uniforms, weapons, and accessories. Also includes maps and 100+ pictures.
7" x 10" 176 pages, index, illustrated, paperbound
#522 U.S. Infantry $16.95

Flashbacks Volume One
 A Cartoon of the District of Columbia Flashbacks Volume One Patrick M. Reynolds brings history to life with a sense of humor. His exciting drawings put you on the scene with the conflicts, madness, plus the wheeling and dealing that resulted in the location and construction of the U.S. capital city. This book covers the early history of DC from 1776 to 1863. You'll be surprised at how many cities served as the U.S. capital; you'll be amazed that the city was built--despite all the bickering, petty jealousies, and down-right stupidity.
