The strife and horrors of the Civil War in America were raw with the wounds of the war lasting for decades; and affecting those who lived in both the North and the South. As the nation struggled to find unity, the forces of darkness and of those who wished to rule through intimidation and terror, spread their wicked ways under the cover of white sheets. This is the story of the Ku Klux Klan and their chief brand: Lynchings, as told in the original newspaper stories from journals across the nation. Some are brief, telling only of a single attack while others are more comprehensive and detailed, telling the story with the inclusion of complex and emotional occurrences. The attempt of the KKK to cloak the power of control over others with fear and violence is explained in some of these news stories. The chief advocate and leader of the Klan was interviewed by reporters and allowed fair access to give his side of the story. The heroism of various groups such as the NAACP and others who risked their lives standing up to thugs and criminals is also noted, as well as the words of those individuals and leaders who fought to eliminate the influence of the Ku Klux Klan. While the KKK had as much right as any group to demonstrate and articulate their cause, the deceits and criminal actions employed by them separated their group from the legal actions of others. For listeners in the 21st Century who know little of the life and death of the KKK, the admonition to understand and know history in order to avoid repeating it, should be considered. Therefore, it is in that hope that this audiobook has been prepared. WARNING: Authentic descriptions are vivid and brutal and the racially charged language of this historic news reports and commentary has not been modified. This material is for adults and parental guidance is appropriate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew L. Barnes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012702/bk_acx0_012702_sample.mp3.

The River Was Dyed with Blood: Nathan Bedford F...

The battlefield reputation of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest, long recognized as a formidable warrior, has been shaped by one infamous wartime incident. At Fort Pillow in 1864, the attack by Confederate forces under Forrest's command left many of the Tennessee Unionists and black soldiers garrisoned there dead in a confrontation widely labeled as a "massacre". In The River Was Dyed with Blood, best-selling Forrest biographer Brian Steel Wills argues that although atrocities did occur after the fall of the fort, Forrest did not order or intend a systematic execution of its defenders. Rather, the general's great failing was losing control of his troops. A prewar slave trader and owner, Forrest was a controversial figure throughout his lifetime. Because the attack on Fort Pillow - which, as Forrest wrote, left the nearby waters "dyed with blood" - occurred in an election year, Republicans used him as a convenient Confederate scapegoat to marshal support for the war. After the war he also became closely associated with the spread of the Ku Klux Klan. Consequently, the man himself, and the truth about Fort Pillow, has remained buried beneath myths, legends, popular depictions, and disputes about the events themselves. The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirk O. Winkler. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088924/bk_acx0_088924_sample.mp3.

Old Shatterhand is given the task of rescuing a victim of a trickster. His journey takes him from New York to New Orleans, from New Orleans to La Grange, and from La Grange to Mexico. On his way he meets Old Death, the most respected scout of the Wild West, and a staunch supporter of the Abolitionists, who helps him in his quest. However, the South-west of the United States is in turmoil: the Ku-Klux-Klan emerges in the Southern states, including Texas. There is a French intervention in Mexico against the elected president, and a war breaks out between the Comanche and the Apache. Old Shatterhand and Old Death have to manage their journey under these conditions. Their skills, and their moral convictions help them to get to Mexico, where a gang is about to attack a silver mine. By then Winnetou, the chief of the Apache, also joins them to help his blood brother, Old Shatterhand. This unabridged English translation retains the exciting adventures, and the strong moral conviction of May's original book, while modernising the style, and editing parts that were erroneous or may evoke bad associations. With this editing the core of May's world, the action, the dreaming of heroic deeds, and the struggle for a kind of justice have become more emphasised, and more accessible to the modern reader.
