THE REVOLUTION’S ‘GINGERBREAD MAN’
By Marc Roland. If an army marches on its stomach, as Napoleon was alleged to have said, then the Continental Army of George Washington was finished by winter 1777. Despite Washington’s pleas, rich pro-separatist Colonists and the U.S. Congress were of no help. But along came a German baker to save the day. Christopher Ludwick not only provided real bread, baked on the spot, but he also concocted a tasty stew that helped the soldiers survive to fight the British.
JOE SHELBY: THE UNDEFEATED REBEL
By Clint Lacy. The war for many Southerners didn’t end with the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox. Many wanted to fight on in the West. One of those was C.S.A. Cavalry Gen. Joe Shelby and his Iron Brigade, who fought the Union for several more months before traveling to Mexico, rather than live under Union occupation. Here is their story.
THE UNION’S GENERAL ORDER NO. 11
By John Tiffany. The brutal treatment of Southerners during their war for independence is a well-known fact. But one particular order was perhaps the worst war crime of the period. Known as Gen. Order No. 11 of 1863, issued by Union Gen. Thomas Ewing, it ordered the mass evacuation of four entire Missouri counties, regardless of allegiance.
RESTORING SOUTHERN HONOR: INTERVIEW WITH THE VIRGINIA FLAGGERS
Not everyone is ready to lay down and give up the fight against political correctness. One group of brave Americans has made it their mission to raise the Confederate flag whenever and wherever they can. Here TBR interviews one member of the Virginia Flaggers, a Southern heritage group.
THE GANGSTER WHO CHEATED DEATH
By Philip Rife. The 1930s was the era of the gangster. But one by one, Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson, Machine Gun Kelly and John Dillinger were either arrested or killed by the FBI. All except one, it seems. The infamous Dillinger may in fact have outwitted and embarrassed J. Edgar Hoover and Melvin Purvis and survived, according to this TBR author.
JEWISH-MUSLIM MIDDLE AGE ALLIANCE
By William A. White. In a previous article, the author described how Jews in Spain helped the Muslims take over the Iberian peninsula by throwing open the gates of cities and betraying the Christian inhabitants. But a Jewish Fifth Column was also at work undermining Christianity in not only Spain, but also southern France, during the Muslim era of occupation. Here is the whole story of Jewish efforts in that regard.
THE BLACK ORCHESTRA’S DARK TUNES
By Daniel W. Michaels. TBR readers are well aware of the huge number of traitors surrounding Adolf Hitler from as early as 1937. In 1941, turncoats even informed the Soviets that Operation Barbarossa was being launched. But traitors were also around Stalin. Here is a synopsis of the activities of the Rote Kapelle and the Schwarze Kapelle, two groups working to oust Stalin and Hitler and deny real peace between the two powerful belligerent states.
IN DEFENSE OF HOLOCAUST DENIERS
By Harlen “Bud” Shasteen. At least a dozen outraged TBR subscribers sent us an article published recently in the John Birch Society’s magazine, in which the Birchers attempted to ridicule Holocaust Revisionists and maintain the hackneyed holocaust myths that TBR has fully debunked. Here Bud Shasteen takes up his pen in defense of the truth.
A SCHOOLTEACHER’S OWN HOLOCAUST
By John Friend. Truly there is no freedom of speech and thought in American schools today, and this sad tale proves it. A schoolteacher, asked by his students what he thought about certain aspects of “the Holocaust,” delicately explained he doubted details of the story. Of course, he came under attack.
ORGY OF REVENGE IN FRANCE, BELGIUM
By Joaquin Bochaca. Though it is the German army that is accused of perpetrating heinous war crimes during WWII, the truth is that, after the war, Communists incited a campaign of bloody retribution against not only the former German occupiers, but also any of their countrymen who supported peaceful relations.
