Ready for the adventure of a lifetime, she set her sights on Chicago at a time when the city was still considered all but the Wild West. Originally published in , More than Lore is a unique firsthand account of the early days of the university, capturing the excitement and travails of life on an academic frontier. Talbot shares gossip from the faculty lounge, relays student antics in the dorms, and tells stories from the living rooms of Hyde Park. His autobiographical narrative was recorded in and and is archived in the Special Collections of the University of Washington Library. Kenoyer's autobiography is a rare, first-person narrative by a Native American discussing life on an Oregon reservation.

To bring his compelling story to contemporary readers, Henry Zenk and Jedd Schrock have completed a translation of the original Tualatin narrative and prepared extensive annotations and commentary to supplement the text. The original Tualatin is presented alongside the English translation. There is no supernal heroism here, no pretension, no grandiose analysis.

Bevens is neither introspective nor philosophical, and he rarely dwells on the larger issues of the war. He concerns himself with what mattered to him as a common foot soldier. There are longer and fuller accounts of the war; however, few are as honest or as direct as this frank and forthright journal. His unassuming voice will speak to all readers with compelling candor.

Logan in the preface to her autobiography. Married to John A. She observed firsthand the extraordinary events before, during, and after the Civil War, and she knew personally those world leaders who held the power to shape history.

After the death of her husband, she maintained her influence in Washington, D. A skillful observer, she recounts events that are personal, regional, and national in scope. In charming detail, she shares her courtship and subsequent marriage to a young prosecutor from Jackson County and the births of their children.

Logan tells of the coming of the Civil War and of her husband—formerly a Democrat and an enemy of Lincoln—casting his fate with the Union and raising a regiment in southern Illinois. In a position to observe and to participate in events ranging from momentous to minute throughout the latter half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, she reports the essential episodes of history with the flair of journalism, a career she in fact embraced after the death of her husband. Drawing on events grand and small, she re-creates history as only a skillful writer who was in the right place at the right time could.

The son of an army officer, Conrad S. The Philippine Insurrection, as Americans described it, began shortly after he arrived. What Babcock observed in subsequent months and years, and details in his memoir, was the remarkable transition the U. Army was undergoing.

From after the Civil War until just before the Spanish War, the army amounted to 28, men. It increased to ,, tiny compared with those of the great European nations of France and Germany, but the great change in the army came after its arrival in France in the summer of , when the German army compelled the U. Out of 94 votes cast, 69 fell to me and 21 to Roegner of Nuremberg, while 4 were scattered. This was decisive evidence of the spirit that would dominate the convention.

Loewenstein, of Fuerth, was elected as first vice-president with 62 votes, Buerger of Goeppingen, as second vice-president, with 59 votes. The opposition was defeated along the whole line. Now they tried to save what they could in the fixing of the order of business. They demanded the striking of the program question from the order of business.

A sharp discussion ensued. The negotiations of the convention took a splendid course. The Nuremberg session was one of the best which I ever attended. As a reporter for the headquarters, I was able to state that the new organization had stood the test well, and that the federation was in better shape than ever before. The clubs belonging to the federation numbered about 13, members.

An attempt of Venedey to eliminate the program question by a modified order of business failed. The debate on the program attracted universal interest. The final result was that the program was adopted by 69 votes, representing 61 clubs, against 16 votes, representing 32 clubs. The minority protested against this decision, left the hall, and did not take part in the proceedings any more.

The struggle for the emancipation of the working classes is not a struggle for class privileges and monopolies, but for equal rights and equal duties, and for the abolition of all class rule.

    The social question is, therefore, inseparable from the political question, its solution by political action based upon and practicable only in a democratic state. They even declared their agreement with the program resolution of Nuremberg, and added, by way of explanation, that questions of state and social questions were inseparable, and that particularly economic emancipation of the working classes and political freedom were conditioned upon each other.

    They also declared their agreement with the program speech of Johann Jacoby, delivered in Berlin on May 24, It was especially the lawyer, Niethammer, who had attended the Nuremberg convention, that advocated a continued co-operation. He was of the opinion that the democracy should rise to the social democracy, if it wished to fulfill its duties. He probably would have joined us completely later on, if a sudden death by heart failure had not carried him off too soon. In addition to Niethammer, it was especially Sonnemann who worked in harmony with these resolutions.

    Germann, of Leipsic, spoke on sick benefit funds. In the further process of the convention proceedings, Schweichel reported on indirect taxation, Liebknecht on the military question.

    Books and files were in the best order, altho the burden of work had increased considerably, and the headquarters received the warmest commendation.
