📒Washington ✍ Paul Kelsey Williams
✏Washington Book Summary : Washington, D.C. is well known for its expansive mall and world famous monuments, but relatively little has been published about the district's historic neighborhoods, where residents have lived since its selection as the nation's capitol in 1790. This volume compares rare vintage photographs with contemporary views and paints a fascinating historical portrait of the dynamic neighborhoods that support the growth and prosperity of the nation's capitol. Then and Now: Washington, D.C. includes images of U Street's nightlife, produce and fish markets along the waterfront, the prestigious Congressional Cemetery of Capitol Hill, popular drinking holes on Pennsylvania Avenue, Orville Wright's groundbreaking test flight in 1909, and Georgetown's renowned Dodge Mansion radically changed over the years. These photographs, many of them never before published, shed new light on D.C.'s rich cultural, social, and architectural heritage.
📒The Presidency Then And Now ✍ Phillip G. Henderson
✏The Presidency Then and Now Book Summary : In The Presidency Then and Now, leading political scientists and historians assess the development of the presidency and its role in today's political landscape. The questions addressed in this wide-ranging volume include: How has the doctrine of separation of powers evolved? How have presidential campaigns and presidential oratory influenced the constitutional character of the institution? How does the scandal-driven press coverage of the post-Vietnam and post-Watergate presidency compare with the partisan press of the early republic? Among other topics, the contributors examine the early precedents and modern manifestations of the executive veto, executive privilege, and presidential use of force doctrine, and chart the shift from a constitutionally circumspect and constrained chief executive toward the modern notion of a plebiscitary presidency. The Presidency Then and Now assesses several key trends in presidential leadership including the recent movement toward a policy-centered presidency in which detailed policy development has at times supplanted broad vision and historically informed judgment. Other essays address such topics as the transformation of the Cabinet from a body whose members possessed stature equal to the president to a largely symbolic group that has been replaced in its advisory capacity by the White House staff. The Presidency Then and Now makes a case for returning to constitutional, reasoned deliberation and replacing modern fixation on 'celebrity' status with the founders' notion of 'stature.' By drawing comparisons between the old and the new, The Presidency Then and Now offers timely and incisive insights that will appeal not only to scholars of the presidency but to historians and general readers interested in the constitutional foundations, philosophical debates, and key political developments that have affected the presidential office over time.

📒The Left Behinds The Iphone That Saved George Washington ✍ David Potter
✏The Left Behinds The iPhone that Saved George Washington Book Summary : Percy Jackson fans will embrace this humorous time travel adventure, the first in a series, about an iPhone malfunction that sends three kids back to 1776 in time to rescue George Washington. On Christmas Day, Mel finds General George Washington lying dead as a doornail in a stable. But Mel knows that George Washington must cross the Delaware River, or the course of American history will be changed forever. Could Mel’s iPhone have sent him back in time to 1776? And can Mel and his schoolmates, know-it-all Bev and laid-back Brandon, come to the rescue? Perhaps, with a little help from two colonial kids and Benjamin Franklin himself. Debut novelist David Potter cleverly combines time travel, humor, and American history in this fast-paced adventure. For American Revolution enthusiasts, there's information about historical reenactments, additional reading, and websites. Praise for THE LEFT BEHINDS: THE IPHONE THAT SAVED GEORGE WASHINGTON “Sequel, anyone? Let’s hope so, because the concept of bringing an iPhone into the past is just too cool to stop at one episode… This is Magic Tree House all grown up, and kids who once loved that time travel conceit will be delighted all over again.” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “A skillful blend of humor, history, mystery, and adventure makes for a fun, fast-paced tale that will leave readers a little wiser.” –School Library Journal “History and humor collide.” –Booklist “A new twist on time travel.” –Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.

📒The Forks Of The Ohio ✍ James David Bailey
✏The Forks of the Ohio Book Summary : Leaving the Mohawk Valley of New York colony young Logan McGill, the superb frontiersman Davey Duncan and the irascible Turley travel to the wilds of the Ohio country wishing only to hunt and trap. But they soon learn that their peaceful intentions are not enough as they are harassed by blood thirsty savages, a vengeful antagonist, and ultimately become swept up in a brutal frontier war. After rescuing the beautiful Elizabeth Hay from her savage kidnappers the four seek refuge with a small, destitute army of Virginia militia. Led by the young and brave but inexperienced Colonel George Washington the Virginians must wrest possession of the forks of the Ohio from the French. Marching through a damp night they surprise a camp of French soldiers and fire the first shots that reignite the decades long conflict between England and France over control of North America. And once again numerous Indian nations are forced to choose which side to fight for. Though the Indians themselves realize that whoever wins, it is the Redman who will be the ultimate loser. From the Iroquois villages of the Mohawk Valley to the skirmish at Jumonvilles Glen and the Battle of Fort Necessity, through General Edward Braddocks fateful expedition to Duquesne, The Forks of the Ohio brings to life the opening events of The French and Indian War as related by Logan McGill. The saga of Logan and his companions continues in the sequel, Holy Sacrament, where the bloody struggle shifts to the New York frontier and the Battle of Lake George.
