  2. WHITE HOUSE

    WHITE HOUSE

    $6.95
    Just in time for the bicentennial of the White House in the fall of 2000, COBBLESTONE has devoted an issue to the famous American landmark. With articles on famous visitors to the White House, critical events that took place there, the causes that first ladies adopted, and a behind-the-scenes look at a formal state dinner, the issue explores how the White House fills a role as a home, an office, and a stage. We also have a cut-away that shows the layout of the rooms open to the public and a couple of activities. Don't miss this issue that celebrates the rich 200-year history of the White House. (We worked closely with the White House Historical Association on this issue.) /cob0009t Learn More
  3. 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
  4. Lincoln: With Malice Toward None

    Lincoln: With Malice Toward None

    $6.95
    Next February 2009 will mark 200 years since the birth of Abraham Lincoln. A modest man, Lincoln might be embarrassed about the planned celebrations to mark this event. In our October issue, we explore the life and times of Lincoln, from his childhood on the frontier, to his early legal and political profession in Illinois, to his years as the president of the Civil War. His famous debates with rival Stephen A. Douglas come to life. We take a close look at his most renowned speech, the Gettysburg Address, and we examine what was perhaps his most pivotal and controversial action, the Emancipation Proclamation. You also can meet his family and dog, Fido. Committed to preserving the Union, Lincoln led the nation through four years of war, but you might be surprised to read his thoughts about after the war and the restoration of the Union (he was for it) and how to punish the South (he was against it). We've also included a selection of famous photographs, paintings, and sculptures that attempt to capture Lincoln's place in history. After reading this month's issue of COBBLESTONE, maybe you can spread the word about why February 2009 includes a date worth remembering. Learn More
  5. John Adams: Join or Die

    John Adams: Join or Die

    $6.95
    If he believed in something, few of our Founding Fathers could bring more passion to the cause than John Adams. During the difficult years when the 13 Colonies itched for more freedom and more respect but didn't quite believe it was going to require a break from Great Britain to gain, Adams became a strong voice for independence. Having convinced his fellow colonists to fight, he spent decades in public service to ensure that our young nation had every chance to succeed. This November issue not only focuses on the life author, lawyer, diplomat, Founding Father, vice president, president, husband, and father John Adams, but it also looks at the other many noteworthy Adams family members, from wife Abigail to great-grandsons.
