Lincoln Park Hauntings Ghost Investigation Tour
23,58 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

We are Chicago's only paranormal investigation tour, and Chicago's oldest ghost and hauntings tours, founded by Ursula Bielski, Chicago's 35 year paranormal researcher and investigator. Like Ursula, all of our guides are all real investigators and true Chicagoans. We love investigating, we love Chicago history, and we would love to show you Chicago's haunted history. This is the only tour which takes you out of the downtown area and into one of the most haunted parts of Chicago: Lincoln Park, the old City Cemetery, which was ravaged by the Great Fire of 1871, leaving 10,000 graves behind. The bodies are all still here, as well as the ghosts. The tour also visits the site of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and the site of Suicide Bridge, where more than 100 desperate souls lost their lives.

Beneath the surface of the apparently untutored and deceptively frank Abraham Lincoln ran private tunnels of self-taught study, a restless philosophical curiosity, and a profound grasp of the fundamentals of democracy. Now, in Lincoln: A Very Short Introduction, the award-winning Lincoln authority Allen C. Guelzo offers a penetrating look into the mind of one of our greatest presidents. If Lincoln was famous for reading aloud from joke books, Guelzo shows that he also plunged deeply into the mainstream of nineteenth-century liberal democratic thought. Guelzo takes us on a wide-ranging exploration of problems that confronted Lincoln and liberal democracy--equality, opportunity, the rule of law, slavery, freedom, peace, and his legacy. The book sets these problems and Lincoln's responses against the larger world of American and trans-Atlantic liberal democracy in the 19th century, comparing Lincoln not just to Andrew Jackson or John Calhoun, but to British thinkers such as Richard Cobden, Jeremy Bentham, and John Bright, and to French observers Alexis de Tocqueville and François Guizot. The Lincoln we meet here is an Enlightenment figure who struggled to create a common ground between a people focused on individual rights and a society eager to establish a certain moral, philosophical, and intellectual bedrock. Lincoln insisted that liberal democracy had a higher purpose, which was the realization of a morally right political order. But how to interject that sense of moral order into a system that values personal self-satisfaction--"the pursuit of happiness"--remains a fundamental dilemma even today. Abraham Lincoln was a man who, according to his friend and biographer William Henry Herndon, "lived in the mind." Guelzo paints a marvelous portrait of this Lincoln--Lincoln the man of ideas--providing new insights into one of the giants of American history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Turetsky.

Lincoln's First Crisis (eBook, ePUB)
15,21 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Lincoln's First Crisis concerns five of the most consequential months in American history: December 1860 through April 1861. When Abraham Lincoln swore his oath as president, the United States was disintegrating. Seven states had seceded, and as many as eight seemed poised to join them, depending upon how the new president handled the secession crisis and its flashpoint: Fort Sumter in South Carolina, the heart of the rebellion. The fate of the republic hung in the balance. The Sumter crisis has been hotly debated and deeply researched for more than 150 years. In this thoughtful reassessment, William Bruce Johnson combines thorough research and the latest historiography with a litigator's methodical analysis and a storyteller's eye for meaningful detail. Shortly after taking office, Lincoln decided upon a plan to avoid war with the seceded states while keeping his inaugural promise to maintain a Union military presence in the South. Because he chose not to reveal his plan to anyone, rumors soon spread that he was simply afraid to act. One source of such rumors was Lincoln's secretary of state, William Henry Seward. Resentful that Lincoln had deprived him of the Republican nomination and convinced that Lincoln lacked the political sophistication necessary to deal with the secession crisis, Seward decided to negotiate with the Confederacy on his own and in secret. General Winfield Scott, meanwhile, the Union's most senior military officer, had for a decade depended upon Seward for political advice, and now considered himself under orders from Seward, not the president. Johnson traces how Seward and Scott sabotaged Lincoln's plan. From this account, from his examination of various personalities (such as that of Fort Sumter's commander, Major Robert Anderson), and from his granular research into aspects of the Order of Battle in Charleston, Johnson has here constructed a new narrative of this crucial period, culminating in a new theory of how and why the Civil War began as it did, and how and why, if the new president's orders had been properly carried out by Seward and Scott, it might have been averted.

Four months after the Battle, the town of Gettysburg was transformed again - this time for the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. On November 18, 1863, Abraham Lincoln and a trainload of dignitaries arrived in Gettysburg for the dedication on the 19th. Lincoln was here for only 24 hours but it was one of the most historic visits of his presidency. We know today that the highlight of the ceremony was the speech he delivered during the cemetery’s dedication, the short speech that became The Gettysburg Address. This tour begins at the train station and follows the route that Lincoln walked during the procession to the cemetery. We’ll walk the same streets that saw the Union retreat on July 1st and then the procession to the cemetery a few months later. Along the way, we’ll hear from many of the townspeople that witnessed the famous visit and we’ll stop at some of the places that hosted Lincoln and many of the participants in this historic gathering. Author Christine Thomas provides us with vivid accounts from diaries and newspapers as we make our way through the town, up Cemetery Hill to the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, the site of The Gettysburg Address. When you take a BrightPath Tour, you tour on your own schedule, walk at your own pace, and spend as much time as you like at each stop. Let BrightPath Tours be your guide as we walk in the footsteps of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maureen Reigh Quinn.

Walt Whitman Speaks: His Final Thoughts on Life...
13,60 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For the Whitman bicentennial, a delightful keepsake edition of the incomparable wisdom of America's greatest poet, distilled from his fascinating late-in-life conversations with Horace Traubel. Toward the end of his life, Walt Whitman was visited almost daily at his home in Camden, New Jersey, by the young poet and social reformer Horace Traubel. After each visit, Traubel meticulously recorded their conversation, transcribing with such sensitivity that Whitman's friend John Burroughs remarked that he felt he could almost hear the poet breathing. In Walt Whitman Speaks, acclaimed author Brenda Wineapple draws from Traubel's extensive interviews an extraordinary gathering of Whitman's observations that conveys the core of his ethos and vision. Here is Whitman the sage, champion of expansiveness and human freedom. Here, too, is the poet's more personal side-his vivid memories of Thoreau, Emerson, and Lincoln, his literary judgments on writers such as Shakespeare, Goethe, and Tolstoy, and his expressions of hope in the democratic promise of the nation he loved. The result is a keepsake edition to touch the soul, capturing the distilled wisdom of America's greatest poet.
