  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the fastest growing religious movements in the world. It is highly visible, with a massive missionary program, yet it remains a mystery in terms of its core beliefs and theological structure. This timely book provides an introduction to the basic history, doctrines and practices of The LDS - the 'Mormon' Church. Written by a non-Mormon it neither seeks to prove or disprove the truthfulness of the religious claims of that faith but rather to describe them in ways that non-Mormons can understand. Particular emphasis is given to sacred texts and prophecies as well as to the crucial Temple rituals of endowments, marriage and baptism for the dead, through which human beings may achieve their divine potential. This rich comparative study offers a new understanding of Mormon theology and ideas of humanity.

Product Description:
The only battle of the War of 1812 fought in Grant County was the Battle of Mississinewa, which involved the Miami Indians, and is still commemorated by an annual reenactment. Two versions of the battle can be read in these abstracts.

In 1778, Frances Slocum, a young Quaker girl was kidnapped by Indians in Pennsylvania. She died in the Grant County area in 1847 as an elderly widow of a Miami Indian. The poignant story of her capture, her life among the Indians, and her renewed contact with her birth family are all retold here.

Marriages, deaths, and business enterprises of local Civil War veterans comprise much of the Marion and Grant County news from 1881 through 1885. A list of county soldiers who lost their lives during that conflict was published with corrections. Federal pensions were applied for, education was enhanced by the construction and staffing of township schools, and county transportation continued to develop during this time. These abstracts are presented alphabetically by surname, followed by a maiden name index.

Product Description:
The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons – responsible for a ‘long history of atrocities’; and, at the other, as dodos – living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husband’s decaying body; the ‘heroically fertile’ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, ‘Emperor’ of Mexico.

Product Description:

Originally published in 1993, we have split the original work into two parts and added a supplement containing the 1775 census and two hundreds (subdivisions) of the 1776 census (which were inadvertently omitted from the initial publication) and corrections. This represents a collection of data covering the period: 1773 (when the county was formed) through 1790. Volumes 1 and 2 have been extracted from the following: tax lists of 1774, 1776 (missing two Hundreds now contained in the supplement), 1778, 1783; censuses of 1776 and 1790; Dr. Archer’s ledgers; orphans’ court proceedings; family Bibles; estate administrations; registers of St. John’s and St. George’s; Quaker monthly meetings of Deer Creek and Little Falls; wills; court minutes; commercial licenses; survey certificates; land records index; marriage licenses; gleanings from various publications such as the Bulletin of the Historical Society of Harford County and other periodicals and histories; list of Non-Associators and Non-Enrollers in 1775; tombstone inscriptions; and other data drawn from the author’s research and collections. This series contains over 30,000 entries.

Product Description:
The dazzling spectacle presented by the armies of medieval Japan owed much to the highly developed family and personal heraldry of samurai society. From simple personal banners, this evolved over centuries of warfare into a complex system of flags worn or carried into battle, together with the striking 'great standards' of leading warlords. While not regulated in the Western sense, Japanese heraldry developed as a series of widely followed practices, while remaining flexible enough to embrace constant innovation. Scores of examples, in monochrome and full colour, illustrate this fascinating explanation of the subject by a respected expert on all aspects of samurai culture.

  • University Press of Kentucky
Product Description:
The Hatfield-McCoy feud has long been the most famous vendetta of the southern Appalachians. Over the years it has become encrusted with myth and error. Scores of writers have produced accounts of it, but few have made any real effort to separate fact from fiction. Novelists, motion picture producers, television script writers, and others have sensationalized events that needed no embellishment.

Using court records, public documents, official correspondence, and other documentary evident, Otis K. Rice presents an account that frees, as much as possible, fact from fiction, event from legend. He weighs the evidence carefully, avoiding the partisanship and the attitude of condescension and condemnation that have characterized many of the writings concerning the feud.

He sets the feud in the social, political, economic, and cultural context of eastern Kentucky and southwestern West Virginia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. By examining the legacy of the Civil War, the weakness of institutions such as the church and education system, the exaggerated importance of family, the impotence of the law, and the isolation of the mountain folk, Rice gives new meaning to the origins and progress of the feud. These conditions help explain why the Hatfield and McCoy families, which have produced so many fine citizens, could engage in such a bitter and prolonged vendetta
