Freedom on Trial (eBook, ePUB)

The Confederacy lost the Civil War but quickly began to win the peace when a mysterious organization arose called the Ku Klux Klan. The Ku Klux, as it was then called, sought to restore white supremacy by terrorizing the formerly enslaved to prevent them from voting or owning firearms. To support Black resistance to the KKK's campaign of murder and mayhem, President Ulysses S. Grant suspended the writ of habeas corpus in large portions of South Carolina and sent the famed 7th Cavalry to make mass arrests. Grant's new attorney general, the first former Confederate to serve in a presidential Cabinet and an ardent advocate for Black equality, Amos T. Akerman, aggressively prosecuted the Ku Klux in a series of sensational trials that shocked the nation and forced a reckoning regarding just how much the Civil War and the recently enacted Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments to the Constitution had changed America and its notions of citizenship. Highlighting forgotten Black and white civil rights pioneers and weaving in the story of the author's own great-grandfather's crimes as a member of the Ku Klux Klan, Freedom on Trial tells a gripping story of a moment pregnant with promise when race relations in the United States might have taken a dramatically different turn. It is a story that also offers a sober lesson for those engaged in the ongoing work of fulfilling the American promise of equality for all.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Matt Branson went to West Point Military Academy and just knew he would be a cavalry officer after he graduated. The Army had other ideas about his military future.  Matt was given the opportunity to serve his country in the Military Information Division. His decision to forego his dreams of being a cavalry officer led him to a life in the shadows. He went to Buffalo, Wyoming, to evaluate the Johnson County War to determine if federal intervention was merited; Canton, Texas, to expose the Ku Klux Klan; Wounded Knee with the 7th Cavalry; and to the island of Cuba to train revolutionaries.  When he returned from Cuba, the Army assigned him to Fort Leavenworth to head up the training of new agents. He survived an assassination attempt, got married, and traveled to Germany as a cultural attaché to function as a spy for the U.S. government. After returning to the United States he was assigned to England to work with MI5 during WWI.  Matt survived several attempts on his life and retired from the Army. An unanticipated opportunity arose from a phone call seeking the help of his unique skills. After finding a kidnapped child, he is contacted by several rich clients through the years to solve their unusual problems. The Shadow Soldier is the story of the early days of military intelligence and one man’s devotion to his country and family. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Cunningham.

Bust Hell Wide Open: The Life of Nathan Bedford...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An intimate biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest, arguably the most interesting figure to emerge from the Civil War - widely admired as a military genius. At 14 he became the head of his impoverished family, responsible for feeding 11 on the rough American frontier. By 39 he had established himself as a successful plantation owner worth over $1 million. And at 40 years old, Nathan Bedford Forrest enlisted in a Tennessee cavalry regiment - and became a controversial Civil War legend. The legacy of General Nathan Bedford Forrest is deeply divisive. Best known for being accused of war crimes at the Battle of Fort Pillow and for his role as first grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan - an organization he later denounced - Forrest has often been studied as a military figure, but never before studied as a fascinating individual who wrestled with the complex issues of his violent times. Bust Hell Wide Open is a comprehensive portrait of Nathan Bedford Forrest as a man: his achievements, failings, reflections, and regrets. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

I got there first with the most men. (Nathan Bedford Forrest) Despite the fact that the Civil War was fought nearly 150 years ago, it remains a polarizing topic for the country to this day. And nowhere is this more evident than in the life and legacy of Confederate lieutenant general Nathan Bedford Forrest, the war's most controversial soldier. When the war broke out, Forrest enlisted in the army and was instructed to raise a battalion of cavalry. A self-made man with no formal military training, Forrest spent the entire war fighting in the Western theater, becoming the only individual in the war to rise from the rank of private to lieutenant general. By the end of the war, Forrest was known throughout the South as the "wizard of the saddle", and anecdotes of his prowess in battle were legendary. In addition to being injured multiple times in battle, Forrest has been credited with having killed 30 Union soldiers in combat and having 29 horses shot out from under him. Northerners weren't the only ones who felt his wrath; Forrest famously feuded with several commanding officers and notoriously killed an artillery commander in his unit after a verbal confrontation spiraled out of control. History has properly accorded Forrest his place as one of the most courageous soldiers of the Civil War, and Forrest attained a number of command successes in the Western theater of the war. But Forrest was also at the head of Confederate troops accused of massacring a Union garrison comprised mostly of black soldiers at Fort Pillow, and he was also a prominent slave trader, an overt racist, and likely a leader of the Ku Klux Klan after the Civil War. 1.

When he died in 1877, in part due to various war wounds, he was the nation's most notorious unreconstructed rebel. John E. Stanchack, an editor of the Civil War Times Illustrated, aptly noted in 1993, "Everything...about [Forrest] is bent to fit some political or intellectual agenda." 1. Language: English.
