The Battle of Kenesaw and the Goodness of Colonel Martin (Confederate Veteran, 1922)

Here is a segment from a longer article found on this site that recalled the history of boys who had enlisted in the Confederate cause - this short paragraph tells the story of a Rebel colonel, W.H. Martin of the 1st Arkansas Regiment, who called out to his opposite number in the Federal ranks during a lull in the fighting for Kenesaw Mountain and allowed for a truce so that the immobilized wounded of the Northern infantry would be rescued from a fire that was spreading in no-mans-land.

A Southern View of Segregation (Pageant Magazine, 1959)

In this 1959 article, an Alabama writer did his level-headed best to explain the sluggish reasoning that made up the opinions of his friends and neighbors as to why racial integration of the nation's schools was a poor idea. He observed that even the proudest Southerner could freely recognize that African-Americans were ill-served by the existing school system and that they were due for some sort of an upgrade - they simply wished it wouldn't happen quite so quickly. The journalist spent a good deal of column space explaining that there existed among the Whites of Dixie a deep and abiding paranoia over interracial marriage.

Reverend John Haynes Holmes: W.W. I Dissenter (Literary Digest, 1917)

Shortly after the U.S. Congress declared war against Germany, a New York City minister named Dr. John Haynes Holmes (1879 - 1964) took to his pulpit and made a series of sound remarks as to why the United States had no business participating in the European war:

"Other clergymen may pray to God for victory for our arms -- I will not. In this church, if no where else in all America, the Germans will still be included in the family of God's children. No word of hatred will be spoken against them, no evil fate will be desired upon them. I will remember the starving millions of Belgium, Servia, Poland, and Armenia, whom my countrymen may neglect for the more important business of killing Germans..."

Two years later, many clergy members would find themselves writing articles condemning their complicity during the war; Reverend Holmes would not be among them. An early admirer of Gandhi, Holmes was also numbered among the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P.).

A Pacific War Chronology (Yank Magazine, 1945)

Here is a printable list of chronological events and battles that took place in the Pacific Theater between December 7, 1941 through May 3, 1945. Please keep in mind that this is only a partial list, the YANK editors who compiled the chronology had no foreknowledge of the U.S. assaults on Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

The Similarities Between Fascists and Bolsheviks (The Literary Digest, 1933)

Here is a brief glance at various observations made by a correspondent for THE LONDON OBSERVER who compared the two dominate tribes found in 1933 Moscow and Berlin.

The journalist was far more distracted by the similarities in their street hustle and their speechifying rather than their shared visions in governance and culture; for example, both the Nazis and Soviets were attracted to restrictions involving public and private assembly, speech and gun ownership while sharing an equal enthusiasm for May Day parades and the color red. Additionally, both totalitarian governments held religion as suspect and enjoyed persecuting their respective dupes:

"Absolute ideas invariably demand victims; and the ruthless treatment which is deliberately meted out to Jews in Germany is closely paralleled by the creation in the Soviet Union of a sort of pariah caste of Lishentsi or disenfranchised persons."

Germany never celebrated May Day with public parades until 1933, when Hitler came to power.

Hitler used the Bolshevik lingo more often than you might have thought...

Read a magazine piece that compares the authoritarian addresses of both Hitler and Stalin - maybe you will see how they differed - we couldn't.

The 'Stalin Prayer' (Pathfinder Magazine, 1947)

During the closing weeks of 1946 a French Catholic newspaper reported that Stalin was being mocked in a parody of the Lord's Prayer from deep within the confines of Soviet-occupied Yugoslavia.

Paris Fashion Liberated (Tricolor Magazine, 1944)

New York fashion journalist Gertrude Bailey wasted little time in applying for her overseas press pass after the news broke that the Germans had been driven from the banks of the Seine in August of '44. When Paris fell to the Nazis in June of 1940, the fashion worlds of London and New York lost all contact with the great taste makers of that city and their contributions were sorely missed. Bailey knew that the first fashion shows after the liberation were going to be the talk of the swanky - and she knew that Paris was the place to be. This is her report concerning the Fall collections of 1944 and what the couturiers needed to do in order to fully restore the French fashion industry. Although the article tends to anticipate the glorious return of Paris chic, there is mention made of what Paris fashion was like during the occupation:

"For four years they had concentrated on extravagant, flamboyant creations in deliberate defiance of the Germans. Everything above the silhouette had been inflated. Yardage, while limited to 100 tons a year for 90 houses employing 12,000 workers, was flaunted... They lavished fabric into parachute sleeves, elaborately draped bodices, skirts that bunched fullness at the front , and hats that were over-trimmed."

The Civil War in 1863 (Southern Rebellion, 1867)

Here is a printable chronology of the important events that occurred during 1863, the most slaughterous year of the American Civil War.

The blood flowed deep in 1863 and the year proved to be a decisive one for the Union Army as the Rebels were driven out of Pennsylvania - at the same time the Confederate defense of Vicksburg (Mississippi) collapsed. General Sherman continued his march to the sea while the women of Mobile (Alabama) cried out for bread. In the North, President Lincoln suspended habeas corpus and draft riots broke out in Boston and New York City.

The Civil War in 1861 (The Southern Rebellion, 1867)

A printable chronology of the important events that occurred during the first year of the American Civil War: 1861.

In April of 1861 the first gallons of blood begin to pour and as December slowly rolled around, news spreads of a battle fought by one Native American tribe loyal to the Union against another tribe siding with the Rebels.

The Gathering Storm: 1860 (The Southern Rebellion, 1867)

Attached is a printable chronology of important events that took place four months prior to the American Civil War.

December, 1860, was a busy month for Secessionists, with all sorts of gatherings, hand shaking and back-slapping; while in Washington the elected representatives to the U.S. Congress from the state of South Carolina resigned.

In North Carolina, U.S. Army Major Robert Anderson (1805 - 1871) gets a sense of what is coming down the pike and removes his troops from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter.
