Francis Hackett Books, Francis Hackett poetry book Yadkin County Authors: Francis H. Casstevens
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
Published Date: 1996-11-01
Categories: History
Nestled between Pilot Mountain and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Yadkin County, North Carolina, is a beautiful region inhabited by energetic, hardworking Americans, descendants of the pioneers who settled there over two hundred years ago. A rural setting that is close to major metropolitan areas, the county's special appeal is its unique way of incorporating change while preserving its heritage and family values. Yadkin County: The First One Hundred Years will be enjoyed by older generations as a trip down memory lane; appreciated by younger generations as a glimpse of an era when life was harder, but perhaps simpler; and treasured by residents and visitors of all ages. It graciously reminds us of the importance of learning history to help us understand our past and succeed in the future as we deal with the computer age and move toward the twenty-first century.

Francis Hackett Books, Francis Hackett poetry book Hannibal's War Authors: John Francis Lazenby
Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press
Published Date: 1998
Categories: History
Hannibal is acknowledged to be one of history's greatest generals, and his crossing of the Alps - complete with elephants - to make war against Rome on its home soil is legendary. But even Hannibal met his match in Scipio, and ultimately Carthage was defeated by the rising power of Rome. In Hannibal's War, J. F. Lazenby provides the first scholarly account in English since 1886 solely devoted to the Second Punic War - what some have called the first "world war" for mastery of the Mediterranean world. By closely examining the accounts of Livy and Polybius, supplemented with the fruits of modern research, Lazenby provides a detailed military history of the entire war as it was fought in Italy, Spain, Greece, and North Africa. This edition includes a new preface covering recent research on Hannibal's war against Rome.

Francis Hackett Books, Francis Hackett poetry book Events and Their Names Authors: Jonathan Bennett, Jonathan Francis Bennett
Publisher: Hackett Publishing
Published Date: 1988
Categories: Philosophy
In this study of events and their places in our language and thought, Bennett propounds and defends views about what kind of item an event is, how the language of events works, and about how these two themes are interrelated. He argues that most of the supposedly metaphysical literature is really about the semantics of their names, and that the true metaphysic of events--known by Leibniz and rediscovered by Kim--has not been universally accepted because it has been tarred with the brush of a false semantic theory.

1929. Illustrated. The story of Henry the Eighth who became heir to the throne when he was not yet quite eleven years old. Henry VIII is one of the most famous and controversial kings of England.

Henry's divorce from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, led to his split with the Catholic Church and set the stage for the English Reformation and for religious battles which lasted for centuries. Henry VIII was the father of Elizabeth I, who became one of England's most powerful and longest-reigning monarchs. He was succeeded by his son, Edward VI, born to Jane Seymour.

Hilaire Belloc Poem
The Catholic Sun
 by Hilaire Belloc

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There-s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I-ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!
