Speech of Hon. W. S. Oldham, of Texas, on the Subject of the Finances

In my Opinion, the evil existing is an impaired public credit, occasioned by a redundant issue of Treasury notes, as evidenced in the cost Of supplies to the government, when purchased with that form of credit, and by the value placed upon those notes by the people as a circulating medium.

Here Is Where

Here Is Where chronicles Andrew Carroll’s eye-opening – and at times hilarious -- journey across America to find and explore unmarked historic sites where extraordinary moments occurred and remarkable individuals once lived. Sparking the idea for this book was Carroll’s visit to the spot where Abraham Lincoln’s son was saved by the brother of Lincoln’s assassin.

To answer that question, Carroll ultimately trekked to every region of the country -- by car, train, plane, helicopter, bus, bike, and kayak and on foot. Among t...
