New Book Details Long-Forgotten and Controversial Civil War Battle in Louisiana Former Slaves’ Fight at Milliken’s Bend Led to Congressional Investigation Baton Rouge—At Milliken’s Bend, Louisiana, a Union force composed predominantly of former slaves met their Confederate adversaries in one of the bloodiest engagements of the war. This small yet important fight received some initial widespread attention but soon drifted into obscurity. In Milliken’s Bend, Linda Barnickel uncovers the story of this long-forgotten and highly controversial battle. Controversial charges made after the battle eventually led to a congressional investigation and contributed to the suspension of prisoner exchanges between North and South. Barnickel’s compelling and comprehensive account of the battle illuminates not only the immense complexity of the events that transpired in northeastern Louisiana during the Vicksburg Campaign but also the implications of Milliken’s Bend upon the war as a whole. The battle contributed to southerners’ increasing fears of slave insurrection and heightened their anxieties about emancipation. In the North, it helped foster a commitment to allow free blacks and former slaves to take part in the war to end slavery. And for African Americans, both free and enslaved, Milliken’s Bend symbolized their never-ending struggle for freedom. Linda Barnickel is an archivist and freelance writer with master’s degrees from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and The Ohio State University. Passionate about discovering the hidden and fascinating stories of history, she is interested in local history, military history, oral history, and the cultural power of archives.
Hitting the Headline News: GOP, Oklahoma University and Hillary Clinton addressing unauthorized emails.
Alerts are going out to militia units throughout thte country...America is on the brink of war that pits freedom-loving Americans wagainst ISIS extremists,, the progressive socialist/communist agenda, U.N. and foreign troops sent to confiscate our guns and dismantle our other constitutional rights. We're under attack and being invaded...but by who? Is America's biggest threat from off shore? Or, is our own government and our local militarized police a bigger, much closer threat? This is just one of the hot topics in this episode of American Firestorm.
PLUS! A hard look at some common questions from patriots and militia members who have little or no experience in the practical side of battlefield conflict. I get questions like, "What's the best seapon, caliber, gear, etc." "hat can I do if I can't find a militia unit to join up with?" "How much gear do I need?"

Obama ATF backs off AR-15 ammo ban - for now; The Obama VA thinks veterans' suicides are hilarious; Utah realizes that firing squads really are more humane; Benny Hill takes over the Secret Service; Dick Nixon had his Oval Office tapes, Hillary Clinton has her 32,000 deleted emails; Barack Obama gets a second crack at his sea-to-bloody-sea race war; Milankovitch cycles and "climate change"; Illegal aliens :just want a better life" - at gringos' expense; and, time permitting, If we don’t mobilize to remove politicians who are actively or passively eliminating our form of government, the republic our founders gave us is lost. Or, in other words, Ben Weingarten is a flaming optimist.
Forgotten Black Soldiers Who Served in White Regiments During The Civil War: Volumes I and II
Dr. Juanita Patience Moss is the great granddaughter of a Civil War veteran, the granddaughter of a northeastern Pennsylvania entrepreneur who became an anthracite coal carver, and the daughter of a unique coal sculptor who was featured in the EBONY Magazine (March 1970). A former high school biology teacher, her interests unexpectedly changed after retirement and took another direction. Using her scientific background, she made a hypothesis and set out to prove it. As a result she has published two volumes concerning hundreds of Union Black soldiers whose military service was forgotten until 1998. Now they are being remembered and honored, too.

The criminal negligence of Barack Obama's pro-terror policies; No, barry, the Cuban people are suffering because of their repressive communist government you love so much, not the U.S. embargo; Is there really a growing schism within American environmentalism?; "Reforiconservatism" has a strong "abandoning free market principles to save the free market system" vibe to it; and, if we must, as little Hillary Clinton crap as possible.

I don’t like the word civil unrest. It doesn’t properly describe what exactly is going down in a riot situation. The mob mentality is an incredibly powerful entity that can take on a mind of its own. The quantity of events labeled as civil unrest throughout recent history are staggering and bring up the very real truth that it is part of the human experience.
All that being said you can still be swallowed up in a mob and your life changed forever or ended. This is not a problem that is going away. If nothing else it will only increase. Those wild ideas that I have talked about on my show like water shortages, economic collapse and terrorist attacks are all on the horizon. ISIS is operating on the Texas border for God’s sake!
