Excerpt from Journal of the Senate of the United States of America: Being the Third Session of the Twenty-Seventh Congress, Begun and Held at the City of Washington, December 5, 1842, and in the Sixty-Seventh Year of the Independence of the Said United States In revising the existing tariff of duties (should you deem it proper to do so at your present session), I can only repeat the suggestions and recommend ations which, upon several occasions, I have heretofore felt it to be my duty to offer to Congress. The great primary and controlling interest of the American people is union - union not only in the mere forms of govern ment - forms which may be broken - but union founded in an attachment of States and individuals for each other. This union in sentiment and feeling can only be preserved by the adoption of that course of policy which, neither giving exclusive benefits to some, nor imposing unnecessary burdens upon others, shall consult the interests of all, by pursuing a course of moderation, and thereby seeking to harmonize public Opinion, and causing the people everywhere to feel and to know that the Government is careful of the inter ests of all alike. Nor is there any subject in regard to which moderation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

While many Civil War reference books exist, there is no single compendium that contains important details about the combatant states (and territories) that Civil War researchers can readily access for their work. People looking for information about the organizations, activities, economies, demographics, and prominent personalities of Civil War States and state governments must assemble data from a variety of sources, with many key sources remaining unavailable online. This crucial reference book, the fourth in the States at War series, provides vital information on the organization, activities, economies, demographics, and prominent personalities of Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey during the Civil War. Its principal sources include the Official Records, state adjutant-general reports, legislative journals, state and federal legislation, federal and state executive speeches and proclamations, and the general and special orders issued by the military authorities of both governments, North and South. Designed and organized for easy use by professional historians and amateurs, this book can be read in two ways: by individual state, with each chapter offering a stand-alone history of an individual stateÕs war years; or across states, comparing reactions to the same event or solutions to the same problems.
Revised and updated, this compendium helps readers identify and understand the scope of key government reference sources-traditional books (including publications catalogs and telephone directories); information clearinghouses; and materials in new formats, such as CD-ROMs, datafiles, and Internet sites. The authors focus on free information and depository materials-both readily available through toll-free phone numbers, mail or e-mail requests to agencies, or federal depository library collections. Materials are fully described in annotations that differentiate between similar materials, identify typical citation formats, and note common abbreviations
Every concerned citizen will enjoy and be very encouraged by the good and accurate historical records of the United States. Lies have been infiltrated so vastly and so deeply in to society of the United States. Even the educational institutions have become deceived and warped, so that the students are then receiving passed-down versions that are, as has been told, - lies. Some are deceived innocently, some willingly, some know it and want it. Many are just so busy with all the cares of life that they passively accept. Is it not important to us? A false "peace" has set in, and yet it is not peace as we are so alertly observing. To an awakened mind, peace should be what everybody wants. Strife or disagreement is a form of anti-peace in the interior spiritual realm. Values of the heart must be addressed as to whether they are proper values, and those values are then displayed by posts of the government. Every citizen needs to know what the true historical experience and record is, what governmental structure was established in the United States, what it is all about, and how it really is and operates. As we are all interested in the spiritual matters of life, a very real and vibrant experience awaits us. With all these wonderful opportunities and serious concerns for righteousness, for enhancing others, unselfish love for others. should we not in mercy, patience, kindness, humility, and love try to establish a good country and citizenry for all This is a very different and right correct account of the real US Government, and its establishment, and its history.
Although the framers gave the president little authority, George Washington knew whatever he did would set precedents for generations of future leaders. To ensure their ability to defend the nation, he simply ignored the Constitution when he thought it necessary. In a revealing new look at the birth of American government, “Mr. President” describes Washington's presidency in a time of continual crisis, as rebellion and attacks by foreign enemies threatened to destroy this new nation. Constantly weighing preservation of the Union against preservation of individual liberties and states' rights, Washington assumed more power with each crisis. In a series of brilliant but unconstitutional maneuvers he forced Congress to cede control of the four pillars of executive power: war, finance, foreign affairs, and law enforcement. Drawing on rare documents and letters, Unger shows how Washington combined political cunning and sheer genius to seize ever-widening powers, impose law and order while ensuring individual freedom, and shape the office of President of the United States.
This book examines the life and career of John Adams, from his career as a lawyer in Massachussets, to France as America's diplomatic representative, to the presidency.
