Horse, Foot and Guns Version 1.1 By Phil Barker
Paperback: $19.77
Prints in 3-5 business days
“Horse Foot and Guns” (HFG) is a set of quick-play army-level wargames rules for large land Battles for the period 1701-1914. This version 1.1 is a slight revision of the version 1.0... More > written about ten years ago by Phil Barker and for many years available as a free download. It is primarily intended for games between two players each controlling a complete army against its historical opponents using a minimum number of figures on a small table. The series' inspirations are that no current rules can cope with more than one corps per player; that few of the many wars of the period except the Napoleonic and American Civil Wars are covered by existing rule sets; and that great interest is being shown in smaller model scales for which casualty removal is impractical. Later it will be followed by HFG Version 2.0 which will extend the period to 1925 as well as detailed companion sets, initially "Tricorne & Musket" covering 1701-1790, "Shako and Bayonet" for 1791-1850, and "Kepi & Rifle" for 1851-1914.< Less

The 50,000 Year DNA Journey of the Knusli Family By Ronald Earl Nicely

Prints in 3-5 business days
DNA testing led to information showing where my ancestors traveled and lived over an approximate 50,000 years. This journey began in Eastern central Africa and ended with my ancestors moving to... More > America in 1717. The history of the locations where my DNA type was found led me to realize how much of the world’s history was developing where they traveled and lived. Their journey took them from Africa to Anatolia, the Fertile Crescent area (Bible Lands) and across the Alps into Switzerland where they began using the surname Knusli. In Switzerland, they joined the Mennonite Religion and suffered religious persecution and were forced to move to Alsace on the Rhine River. In 1717, they made the journey to America and settled near Lancaster, PA. The Knusli surname has changed many times over the years including Nicely, Knisely, Kneisly, Knisley, and others. DNA testing has linked these and many other spellings to the Knusli family line. This book is the result of 15 years of family research.< Less
a diary of a rough voyage to America By Paul Tapp

This booklet has its origins in a the diary of John Dixon,a relative of Valda Buckley, when her husband Barry operated the Blue Waters Hotel at Orford. It gives a fascinating insight into the... More > conditions aboard those small ships that ventured into the sometimes terrifying Atlantic between Liverpool and London. Dixon made the voyage in 1868 when he and his family emigrated to America to start a new life. Through a piece of serendipity I discovered on the world-wide-web, an oil-painting of the same vessel on which he made the crossing, the Cunard steamship 'Tarifa'. The booklet also contains images sketched by artists of the time, which give a graphic account of cramped conditions on board, capturing also the terror of rough crossings. New York resident, Mrs Maggie Land Blanck, has kindly agreed to my use of these depictions she has posted on the web as a reminder of the brave pioneering spirit of those who filled America for new lives from across the globe.< Less
