More Great Stuff

The book John Quincy Adams by historian Harlow Unger is new and available. The son of John and Abigail Adams, John Quincy served five presidents before he served as the sixth president of the United States (1825-1829).  Unger studied Adams’ family papers, his correspondence, his diary of 68 years, as well as other source materials to create what the Library Journal calls a “stirring” and “irresistible” account of the life of John Quincy Adams.

Published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press is the book, Badger Boneyards: the Eternal Rest of the Story (2010), by journalist Dennis McCann.  McCann meandered through many Wisconsin graveyards, and survived to share these notes and stories.
