Asylum of Liberty: The Legacy of the Eighteenth Century. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Marilyn C. Baseler shows how the New World's role as a refuge for the victims of political, religious, and economic oppression gradually devolved on the thirteen colonies that became the United States. She traces immigration patterns and policies to show how the new American Republic became an 'asylum for mankind.' Baseler explains how British and colonial officials and landowners lured settlers from rival nations with promises of religious toleration, economic opportunity, and the 'rights of Englishmen,' and she identifies the liberties, disabilities, and benefits experienced by different immigrant groups. She also explains how the exploitation of slaves subsidized the living standards of Europeans who came by choice. Baseler's work defines the historical context for current attempts by municipal, state, and federal governments to abridge the rights of aliens.

'They are not represented in this house' -- 10.) Independence days. . . . . . . . . . . . 'This book is quite simply a must read. In a concise, straightforward, and readable style, the author has provided us with what really transpired leading unto and through the Declaration of Independence. As always, the truth is more compelling than the legends and myths, and this author has in a journalistic style simply reported the facts, and the players. How do 13 disparate colonies reach agreement to take on the mightiest of military forces? Well, read this book of these extraordinary actions and people. BTW: the usual names appear appropriately, but what you will find is the names of the high impact people that you may not have heard about before. Further, and as extraordinary, you will learn of the painful sacrifices and compromises made by individuals to better the cause greater than the individual. Upon reading the latter, you will undoubtedly say to yourself 'hmmmm', yes the petulant children in Washington running our government and country into the ground should be made to read every word of this book before any further action is taken. For the most part you will read about educated men during the time period covered, but there were a majority of men who were not educated in the formal sense. These folks of the 1770s took on the mightiest of armadas and armies and created a nation for which they only had faith in the future that it would all work out. Yet the current crop of elected officials which are greater in numbers and education cannot even balance a budget. This book really must be read to understand what really happened and how greater an accomplishment it was than all of the myths and legends combined. Truly extraordinary.' -- Mt. Walley

Paul Revere began his famous midnight ride not by jumping on a horse, but by scrambling into a skiff with two other brave patriots to cross Boston Harbor to Charlestown. Revere and his companions rowed with muffled oars to avoid capture by the British warships closely guarding the harbor. As they paddled silently, Revere's neighbor was flashing two lanterns from the belfry of Old North Church, signaling patriots in Charlestown that the redcoats were crossing the Charles River in longboats. In every major Revolutionary battle thereafter the sea would play a vital, if historically neglected, role. When the American colonies took up arms against Great Britain, they were confronting the greatest sea-power of the age. And it was during the War of Independence that the American Navy was born. But following the British naval model proved crushingly expensive, and the Founding Fathers fought viciously for decades over whether or not the fledgling republic truly needed a deep-water fleet. The debate ended only when the Federal Navy proved indispensable during the War of 1812. Drawing on decades of prodigious research, historian George C. Daughan chronicles the embattled origins of the U.S. Navy. From the bloody and gunpowder-drenched battles fought by American sailors on lakes and high seas to the fierce rhetorical combat waged by the Founders in Congress, If By Sea charts the course by which the Navy became a vital and celebrated American institution.
