  3. CIVIL WAR, NAVY

    CIVIL WAR, NAVY

    $6.95
    COBBLESTONE has done a number of issues devoted to famous battles and various generals in the Civil War. But this issue takes a broader approach, looking at the use of naval power by both the North and the South during the Civil War. Neither side had a strong navy in 1861, but by the end of the war in 1865, the United States had transformed its Navy from one of outdated wooden vessels into a technologically advanced force. There is an article on the some of naval leaders for each side and a descriptive article that offers a look at a day in the life of a sailor in the mid-1800s. There are general articles that offer overviews of the various naval tactics - river warfare, high sea raiding, and coastal blockades. There also is an article on the recent recovery of USS Monitor. /cob0401t Learn More
  4. French and Indian War

    French and Indian War

    $6.95
    In 1754, George Washington gained some valuable - and painful - military experience. He has the dubious distinction of being the leader of a group of men who fired the first shots in the French and Indian War. In the September 2005 issue, we explore this world war between France and Great Britain, the role of native allies and native enemies, and the impact it all had on the British Colonies. The victor in this war - Great Britain - won on an international level, but the price of victory would prove equally enormous, and destructive. For the American colonists, the war's outcome signaled the beginning of the end of a good relationship with the Mother Country and the start of a sense of independence./COB0509t Learn More
  5. The Great War: Women Join the Fight

    The Great War: Women Join the Fight

    $6.95
    What do First Lady Edith Wilson, novelist Edith Wharton, performer Elsie Janis, and sculptor Anna Coleman Ladd have in common? They all were women who used their positions and skills to show support to the soldiers and the victims of World War I. And they were not the only ones who invested their time, money, or talents to the effort. Women during the early 1900s were expected to devote their lives to being wives and mothers. But when World War I started in Europe in 1914, the urge to help was strong. Women volunteered as nurses, worked as switchboard operators, enlisted in the Navy. They served their country in any way they could and their sacrifices and successes changed how women were perceived after the war. Join us in March to meet some of these amazing women who dared to step outside of their traditional roles.cob0603t Learn More
  6. Ulysses S. Grant: Unlikely Hero of the Civil War

    Ulysses S. Grant: Unlikely Hero of the Civil War

    $6.95
    How did a boy whose only talent was training horses become the author of a best-selling memoir? How did a man who aspired to be a math teacher become our 18th president? How did a soldier who once resigned from the army because he missed his wife and children ascend to become the highest-ranked and one of the most respected generals during the Civil War? In the December issue, we'll examine the many sides of Ulysses S. Grant's life. During the Civil War, was he a ruthless butcher or a daring commander? In the White House, was he a poor politician or a too-trusting friend? COBBLESTONE (R) takes a closer look at the highs and lows in the life of Ulysses S Grant. Learn More
  7. Ken Burns's The War

    Ken Burns's The War

    $6.95
    Designed to be a young person's companion to Ken Burns's latest documentary devoted to World War II, the September issue introduces COBBLESTONE readers to some of the people and places highlighted in that film. By working closely with Florentine Films and focusing on characters who were interviewed extensively for the film, this issue tells their remarkable stories and shows how these "ordinary" Americans were called upon to do extraordinary things. Meet a Marine who fought in the South Pacific, a medic who saved lives in Europe, an African American who never got the chance to fight, a young girl who became a prisoner of war in the Philippines, a farmer's son who became a fighter pilot - among others. An exclusive interview with Ken Burns is included, and we also caught up with a young New Hampshire native whose voice earned a starring role in the film. It's a unique COBBLESTONE issue that you won't want to miss! And remember to catch The War on PBS to air in September (check local listings). Learn More
  8. Gettysburg: Civil War Turning Point

    Gettysburg: Civil War Turning Point

    $6.95
    In 1863, the dis-United States were about halfway through the Civil War, (but they didn't know that). When the Union and Confederate armies clashed at a small farming community in southern Pennsylvania that July, it proved to be a turning point in the war. In the February issue, we head to Gettysburg and see what happened over the course of that three-day battle. From the strategy of the military leaders to the townspeople's care of the wounded to the role of news reporters covering the battles, it is all here. And we visit the new museum and visitor center at Gettysburg National Military Park, where the historic Battle of Gettysburg cyclorama has been restored and now hangs in a specially designed 360-degree hall.

  9. Surrender at Saratoga

    Surrender at Saratoga

    $6.95
    Two years into the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), one British general felt pretty confident that the"rebellion" by the American colonists could easily be put down. His plan-to invade New York State from the British base in Canada and cut off the troublesome New Englanders from their fellow colonists-resulted instead in a major win for the Americans. In addition to guiding readers through the movements of the British and American armies during the Saratoga Campaign and showing how the British defeat at these battles impacted the rest of the war, this issue also introduces some of the key players: John Burgoyne and Barry St. Leger on the British side and Horatio Gates, Daniel Morgan, and Benedict Arnold on the American side. There's an article that describes what life was like for camp followers as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how soldiers survived day-to-day life in the army in the 1700s. And you can read about the Saratoga National Historical Park, where members of the National Park Service work to preserve the story of this pivotal, turning point event in American history.
