    Six-year-old Liza has little understanding of her status as a slave. Naturally eager to please, she has lived in the grand plantation house of Norbury Estate and been treated as the doll of the planter’s daughter for as long as she can remember. As 1862 rolls along, however, and tensions surrounding slavery come to a head outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, Liza finds herself transformed into a symbol in a brave campaign to prove that the significance of skin colour runs little deeper than a coat of paint.
    Lauren Helena Hjalmarson is a Canadian Icelandic woman with a background in acting for live theatre. Currently she is working on a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at UBC in Kelowna, British Columbia, and her major is Interdisciplinary Performance. Through this program she is furthering her skills in the fields of devised theatre, creative writing, and illustration.

She looks forward to producing further work, and hopes to write particularly for young audiences.

    Chinese Heroes of the American Civil War: Blue & Gray

    in Current Events

    Please welcome Henry Huie Jung M.Ed, Ed.D, (University of Mass., Amherst), Somerville, MA.
    Mr. Jung is the author of Chinese Heroes of the American Civil War: Blue & Gray.
    He is self-proclaimed as not being a "Civil War buff" as such, but the participation of Chinese men in this very major American event attracted his attention (he had served in the U.S. military--Vietnam).  Mr. Jung's doctoral dissertation (1985) was on Chinese-American men and "kung-fu" movies. His first knowledge of one Chinese soldier, Edward Day Cohota, was last year when he and his wife visited the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester, MA---there was a photo of the middle-aged Cohota and his elderly adopted father in the room displaying the wealthy Day family memories.
    Mr. Jung will also talk about his presentation at Somerville Public Library on April 11th.
    I hope you join us for this significant discussion.

    Military Monday With John D. Gresham and Author Mike Haskew – Appomattox

    in Lifestyle

    As the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War winds down, there are still some important events that enthusiasts and historians are looking forward to. Arguably, one of the most important was the showdown between the Union Army of the Potomac, and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. What had begun in 1864 at the Battle of the Wilderness, had turned into the bloody Overland Campaign that had ended with the two armies facing off near the town of Petersburg, Virginia. There both sides had dug in, and a monotonous trench warfare reminiscent of World War I had developed. And despite occasional Union attempts to break the Confederate trench lines, the stalemate had prevailed through early 1865. There, in March and April, the Union forces finally managed to break out, beginning a desperate race by both armies into Southwestern Virginia. For weeks the pursuit continued, with Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's forces gradually encircling Lee's Army. Finally, at Appomattox Court House, the pursuit ended, and Gen. Lee conceded defeat. It was the beginning of the end of America's bloodiest war, one that still touches us deeply.


     To learn more about the Appomattox Campaign, please tune in to Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) hosted by best-selling author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01). His guest this week will be respected Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and historian Mike Haskew. Mr. Haskew is the author of the new book APPOMATTOX, a single volume history of the campaign that ended the American Civil War. Mr. Haskew will describe the nuances of the campaign, including many of the personal stories and background that are rarely told outside the historian community. Listeners are encouraged to call in, and offer questions and comments on this fascinating final military campaign of America's bloodiest war.

    in Travel

    World Footprints is pleased share this GOLD Award winning show which was recognized by the North American Travel Journalist Association.   In celebration of Black History Month and the 150 Anniversary Commemoration of the American Civil War and Gettysburg Address, you will see a very compelling side of Gettysburg as told through our guests.  In 2013 the city of Gettysburg, the nation and the world reflected upon the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place from July 1 to July 3 1863, and President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.  We showcased what visitors can expect to see and experience following the Commemorations and beyond the battlefield with Stacey Fox, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of the Gettysburg Convention & Visitors Bureau. Then, Scott Hancock, PhD, Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at Gettysburg College joins us to discuss the role of the Underground Railroad in the war, the African-American struggle for freedom--from President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the seminal events that took place in Gettysburg in 1863 that forever changed America. Finally, Debra Sandoe McCauslin of For the Cause/Gettysburg Histories takes us along the Underground Railroad in Adams County, Pennsylvania where we visit Yellow Hill and the Quaker Valley to uncover the African-American families who settled in the area and the role of Quakers in the Abolitionist Movement there.

    The Lion of Judah is sending people to sea.


    You have a unique ministry, gifted to you by the Holy Spirit.
    This is your chance to make that ministry your career. Isaiah 24 tells us that the whole world will be almost completely depopulated before the End Times, and those who will be left on land “are burnt.” The double meltdowns at Fukushima alone are enough to do that, but we also have nuclear leakage and radiation- poisoning of our environment at Sellafield, in England, and several other sites. Isaiah then tells us that the only joyful people in the world will be Christians, who come to help the burnt people,  and they come from the sea, and from the uttermost parts of the earth , not the population centers

    Hard Starboard Radio: War Is Coming

    in Politics Conservative

    The survey data are clear: There is a patriotism gap between Right and Left; Barack Obama even emasculates Democrat senators; FCC chair refuses to testify before Congress ahead of net neutrality vote; Accusing Scott Walker of winking insidious messages, Dana Milbank shows his frustration at the disciplining effect of Walk's no-response response - and, you know, being named "Dana"; Obama's surrender to Iranian nukes is sparking an appeasement bidding war with other communist dictatorships for the good graces of the craziest regime on Earth; Unless the Obama White House makes dramatic changes to policy - which it won't - America will end up in a war soon; and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell retreats into his shell.
