The Life and Times of Tod Sloan

In the 1890s the world of racing was turned on its ear by a young American who rodeøhorses as no professional jockey had ever ridden: Tod Sloan hitched up his stirrups and thrust his weight far forward. Traditionalists laughed at first and dismissed him as a novelty, but as he came to dominate racing on both sides of the Atlantic, his style of riding became widely imitated, and his famous ?forward seat? remains universally practiced to this day. Sloan?s place in racing lore and popular culture was cemented in 1904 when George M. Cohan wrote and starred in Little Johnny Jones, a Broadway musical based on Sloan?s rise and fall in England. John Dizikes?s portrait of Sloan (1874?1933) shows a small-town, hard-luck, midwestern boy who became an overnight sensation and an international celebrity in a world of breeders, bookmakers, gamblers, hustlers, bluebloods, and princes. As the King of Jockeys in the sport of kings, Sloan lived in high style, until he was banned from British racing and forced to eke out a living on the margins of the sport for thirty years.

Washington's Soldiers in the American Revolution

The people most responsible for achieving America's independence by winning the Revolutionary War were George Washington's foot soldiers--the men of the Continental Army. But exactly who were they, and what was it that inspired them to endure such appalling hardships throughout the conflict? What was their life like during and after the war? And what is their legacy today? In an effort to uncover the facts about these men, author and historian Bob Mayers has scoured through obscure documentary material and little known British, Hessian, and Loyalist records to unearth truths that challenge traditional beliefs about Washington's soldiers. During the process he discovered that the image of the American soldier has been sanitized for more than two centuries. The fighting men and women of the Revolution were incorrectly portrayed as zealously patriotic citizen-soldiers, when in reality they were professionals dedicated to the American cause. This realization lies at the heart of this book, and propels the narrative along in a way that is entertaining and enlightening.Expertly designed, the book is fortified with over fifty images in twenty-two chapters, all of which is intended be enjoyed by the average reader, and not just the hard-core history fan. Included is a comprehensive chapter on researching individual Revolutionary War veterans, and four appendices--the makeup of a regiment, distribution of regiments by state, names and publication sources of diarists, and an actual muster roll--that provide useful supplementary information.With skill and certitude Mayers has given us an entirely fresh portrait of the foot soldiers of the American Revolution. His examination of their motivations, personal lives and experiences before, during, and after the war is a compelling story, one that should be familiar to every American.

As a teenager growing up on a farm near Healdsburg, California, MargeÕs head was filled with thoughts of proms, pranks and other school activities when the U.S. abruptly entered World War II. It was a time of great curiosity in equal measure with fear and a longing for things to return to normal. Her generation was forced to grow up fast, into a world that was never the same as it had been. Marge tells of the war years at San Jose State College, virtually an all-girls school, and her decision to join the Navy WAVES while still in college. She went off to boot camp at HunterÕs College in New York City and served on active duty at North Island Naval Air Base in San Diego, where she updated aeronautical charts for pilots and witnessed the amazing evolution from piston to jet-powered fighter aircraft. The book, sprinkled with correspondence between two WAVES, both working with airplanes, contains many original fighter plane photos taken by Marge and fellow WAVE, Jean Broadbent.
