On a cold wet May day in 1813, during the War of 1812, Colonel William Dudley led a green regiment of Kentucky militia against the British and their Indian allies in an effort to relieve the siege of Fort Meigs. Their effort to capture the British cannons on the shore opposite Fort Meigs proved to be a success. Their failure to follow orders and return to their boats and cross over to the safety of Fort Meigs would lead to what would become known as Dudleys Defeat or the Dudley Massacre. Base on several years of research, James Emch has pieced together a chronological running narrative of the Dudley Massacre based on military reports, accounts of those present, family histories, old manuscripts, and diaries. The result of his effort is the first book ever written about those fateful events on May 5, 1813, that helped changed the old Northwest Territory forever.

Among the most fascinating figures from America's past are the men and women who performed some singular feat that's been completely overlooked or that gets only a bare mention in the history books of today. Written by longtime National Geographic editor Paul Martin, AMERICAN TRAILBLAZERS celebrates a few of these remarkable people, all of whom left an enduring imprint on their time through their milestone innovations or inspirational accomplishments. The book's thirty-two chapters are divided into two groups representing the fields in which the characters excelled-Culture and Society or Science and Industry. The subjects come from every period in our nation's history and all walks of life-from humanitarians, adventurers, and entertainers to political figures, inventors, and entrepreneurs. What makes them worthy of note are their memorable life stories. Many of these individuals could be deemed heroes, others colorful iconoclasts. One or two might even be considered controversial, although their attainments were important nonetheless. They range from fearless Quaker housewife Mary Dyer, who was hanged in Massachusetts in 1660 while fighting for religious freedom, to H. Edward Roberts, the father of the personal computer, a maverick who sold his successful electronics company to study medicine and become a Georgia country doctor. From the pregnant nineteen-year-old heroine who took command of a clipper ship in distress in the dangerous waters off Cape Horn to the scientist who invented modern forensic toxicology, these rare individualists fix themselves firmly in our imagination with their mesmerizing stories. Critics have praised Martin's two previous collections of biographical profiles-SECRET HEROES (HarperCollins, 2012) and VILLAINS, SCOUNDRELS, AND ROGUES (Prometheus Books, 2014): "Martin doesn't know the meaning of the word boring."-SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW. "A model of how to write short popular history."-BOOKLIST. "Inspirational yarns of exceptional folks."-KIRKUS REVIEWS. "Meticulously researched."-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. "Wildly entertaining."-BAKER & TAYLOR FORECAST. "Makes history joyous."-Best-selling author Thomas C. Foster.

The Bumper Book of Slightly Forgotten British Olympians and Other Sporting Heroes is just that: a collection of stirring tales of pluck, grit, triumph, disaster and on occasion, ineptitude, featuring a host of former sportspeople who've been utterly forgotten by history. From Maude Waveney, the plucky servant girl who bravely took half a day off work scrubbing kitchen floors to win a gold medal folding bedsheets in the first London games, to Tom Drake, Dressage's first punk, who shocked the sport with his slashed jacket and swear words on his hat.There's the tale of the Lincolnshire javelin thrower who fell under the spell of a cult devoted to the eating of egg and chips; of the mascot of Bexhill-on-Sea's ill fated bid to host the Olympics and "Ample" Arthur Cartwright, whose football career was blighted by an obsession with archaeology. They, and many others, all have a story to tell.

Even as Americans devour books about our Founding Fathers, the focus seldom extends past a half dozen or so icons—Franklin, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton. Many of the men (and women) who made prodigious contributions to the American founding have been all but forgotten. America’s Forgotten Founders corrects this injustice. Editors Gary L. Gregg II and Mark David Hall surveyed forty-five top scholars in history, political science, and law to produce the first-ever ranking of the most neglected contributors to the American Revolution and our constitutional order. This unique book features engaging short biographies of the top ten most important Founders whose contributions are overlooked today: James Wilson, George Mason, Gouverneur Morris, John Jay, Roger Sherman, John Marshall, John Dickinson, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, and John Witherspoon. The latest entry in ISI Books’ Lives of the Founders series, America’s Forgotten Founders reshapes our understanding of America’s founding generation.
