New Hampshire history is uniquely on display along the highways of the Granite State. The New Hampshire roadside historical markers commemorate significant events and individuals from the first settlers arriving in 1623 to notable individuals who helped define what New Hampshire is today. New Hampshire played a major role in the birth of our nation. From Revolutionary battlefields to individuals of political influence, the Granite State has made an indelible mark on history. This book explores the 255 New Hampshire historical markers that dot the state highways and roads. Each marker is described with its location (to include GPS coordinates), date installed, marker inscription, and expanded historical references of this event/individual. Information may also be provided about other points of interest in the vicinity of the historical marker.

Soviet Cruise Missile Submarines Of The Cold War

The Soviet Union's cruise missile submarines from the modified Whiskey, to the Oscar II classes were among the most formidable vessels of the Cold War. They were initially designed to carry land attack nuclear-tipped cruise missiles designed to strike targets on the eastern coast of the United States. By the late 1960s, however, submarine-launched ballistic missiles made the nuclear land-attack mission unnecessary, so existing classes were converted to the 'carrier killer' role, armed with anti-ship cruise missiles designed to destroy US super-carriers and other important naval targets. This fully illustrated study examines these powerful machines that were some of the largest and fastest submarines ever built. If war had broken out, they would have been at the forefront of the Soviet Navy's campaign to destroy NATO's sea power and cut America's sea link with Europe.

History And The Human Condition

In a career spanning more than sixty-five years, John Lukacs has established himself as one of our most accomplished historians. Now, in the stimulating book History and the Human Condition, Lukacs offers his profound reflections on the very nature of history, the role of the historian, the limits of knowledge, and more. Guiding us on a quest for knowledge, Lukacs ranges far and wide over the past two centuries. The pursuit takes us from Alexis de Tocqueville to the atomic bomb, from American “exceptionalism” to Nazi expansionism, from the closing of the American frontier to the passing of the modern age. Lukacs’s insights about the past have important implications for the present and future. In chronicling the twentieth-century decline of liberalism and rise of conservatism, for example, he forces us to rethink the terms of the liberal-versus-conservative debate. In particular, he shows that what passes for “conservative” in the twenty-first century often bears little connection to true conservatism. Lukacs concludes by shifting his gaze from the broad currents of history to the world immediately around him. His reflections on his home, his town, his career, and his experiences as an immigrant to the United States illuminate deeper truths about America, the unique challenges of modernity, the sense of displacement and atomization that increasingly characterizes twenty-first-century life, and much more. Moving and insightful, this closing section focuses on the human in history, masterfully displaying how right Lukacs is in his contention that history, at its best, is personal and participatory. History and the Human Condition is a fascinating work by one of the finest historians of our time. More than that, it is perhaps John Lukacs’s final word on the great themes that have defined him as a historian and a writer.

The Revenue Cutter "Bear" was famous throughout the western Arctic from the time of her first summer cruise in 1886. So was her captain, Michael Healy, the son of an Irish plantation owner and a Georgia slave. Together Healy and the "Bear" represented the United States to an Alaska newly acquired from Russia. They were responsible for the welfare of Natives and American whalemen alike. They policed and charted the waters of Alaska and Siberia, brought medical care to those who needed it, and saved the lives of those in danger. Exploring expeditions were launched from and supported by the "Bear." This book is the first to exhibit and describe the set of photographs taken by 3rd Lt. Charles Kennedy of New Bedford on that first summer cruise. The photographs capture moments of early interactions of Natives Alaskan and Siberian with white whalemen and explorers. Images in the book include some of the last sail and steam whaleships in America, Native people, houses, kayaks, and umiaqs, as well as trading and dance houses, Russian Orthodox churches and cemeteries. The essays, using the logbook of the cruise, follow the "Bear "and her crew from May to October, 1886, as they charted their course, under sail and steam, from San Francisco to the Aleutians to the Chukchi Peninsula, to trading camps near Kotzebue, to the villages of Point Hope, Point Lay, Point Barrow, and back to San Francisco. "Steaming to the North: The First Summer Cruise of the Revenue Cutter Bear, 1886, "opens the door to a world of steam, whaleships, and the Native people of the Territory, capturing details of lives, places, and practices already swiftly changing.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 2 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
