VOLUME XXI, NUMBER 1
Table of Contents
By John Tiffany. After suffering months—even years—in Confederate POW camps, these Union soldiers were ecstatic to be finally going home. So optimistic were they, these emaciated former POWs didn’t even complain when they were packed like sardines on the steamship Sultana—the boat that was to take them back to their families. But though they had survived the horrors of war and starvation, these hardened men in blue could hardly have imagined the fate that awaited them and many of their comrades just 12 days after the surrender of Robert E. Lee.
WHO REALLY MURDERED THE KINGFISH?
By Dr. Phillip Rife. Huey Long was a brilliant lawyer and politician, representing Louisiana as a senator and later the Pelican State’s governor. But his fame and success had not come without a price. During his career, this brash populist had made enemies—powerful ones—including President Franklin Roosevelt and the Standard Oil Company. While passing through the state capitol building, Long, accompanied by a bevy of bodyguards, was shot. He died a few days later of his wounds. Though the case seems cut and dried, many questions remain unanswered about the assassination of “the Kingfish.”

CZAR PAUL’S PLAN TO PROTECT THE JEWS
By Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson. Trying to ensure peace in the Russian empire, Czar Paul I decided to find out why the Jews in his realms were complaining so bitterly of mistreatment.

UKRAINE’S PERSECUTED HEROES
By Marc Roland. Those Ukrainians and Russians who have resisted the CIA-inspired takeover of Ukraine in recent months have been smeared as “neo-nazis” and “pro-Russian fascists.” The fact is, they are ultranationalistic and for a good reason: Ukraine was mightily abused by both Josef Stalin’s henchmen and the Western powers, and its people to this day are suspicious of anything stinking of Zionist meddling.
AFTER STALINGRAD: A DOCTOR’S SAGA
By Daniel w. Michaels. The battle of Stalingrad was a complete disaster for the German army. Over 100,000 German soldiers died and over 100,000 more were taken prisoner. But before and after the battle, it was disease—typhus and dysentery in particular—that remained an even more dangerous constant enemy, stalking the survivors like a ghostly specter. How did the ingenious German staff doctors deal with these camp killers and, especially, what did they teach their Soviet captors about dealing with these dreaded diseases?
