Amazon Says: The revealing historical documentary The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln on DVD, the illustrated biography Abraham Lincoln: President and Icon, PLUS rare memorabilia including a reproduction of the earliest known draft of the Gettysburg Address. Few figures in American history have achieved such iconic status as Abraham Lincoln. Consistently rated by historians as the greatest president the country ever knew, Lincoln's life reflected the ideals and ethics of a nation. A self- educated woodsman from Kentucky, his desire to improve both himself and his countrymen drove him to the highest political office in the land, but his presidency would be blighted by war, division, and ultimately assassination.This high quality box set pays tribute to 'Honest Abe' and offers a unique glimpse into his life and times. The feature-length DVD, The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, goes back to that momentous time in U.S. history when the country came together to enjoy a hard-fought peace, only for the nationwide joy and relief to be shattered by the actions of a lone gunman. The accompanying 24-page biography, filled with facts and rare photographs, tells the life story of the man history remembers as 'The Great Emancipator', while a collection of lovingly reproduced memorabilia gives you the opportunity to hold history in your hands. Honor the memory of America's greatest public servant with this unprecedented collection, and bring the past to life as never before. less...

Amazon Says: BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE REAL STORY from HISTORYr looks at two of America's most legendary gangsters: Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. A love match made in hell, Bonnie and Clyde met during the Great Depression, when Bonnie was a poor waitress looking for excitement and just before 20-year-old Clyde was locked up for burglary. Bonnie arranges Clyde's first escape, but he is captured and then sexually abused in prison. He kills the convict who attacked him - his first murder - and his prison experience sets in motion a bloody and vindictive crime spree covering five states. Clyde's weapon of choice was the lethal Browning Automatic Rifle. He became infamous not only for his uncanny ability to escape but also for his ruthless use of this extreme firepower. After hundreds of law enforcement officers hotly pursue the pair and fail to keep Clyde in jail, a highly publicized jailbreak catches the attention of one of the country's top man hunters, Texas Ranger Frank Hamer. On a lonely country road one day in 1934, Hamer and his team set a trap for the gangsters, armed - ironically - with Browning Automatic Rifles. And although the public would continue to romanticize them for decades, on that day, Bonnie and Clyde didn't have a chance. less...

Amazon Says: The dramatic historical documentary Gettysburg: The Boys In Blue & Gray, a 24-page illustrated history of the war PLUS a selection of rare memorabilia including contemporary letters and battle maps. It was one of the great turning points in American history: a clash of ideologies that spilled over from the political arena and onto the battlefield, where over half a million lives were lost. The war between the Union and the Confederacy saw the country divided along geographical, racial and industrial lines, and few were spared the decision of where to pledge their loyalty. Communities were torn apart, families broken and cities destroyed. Now, travel back to this most significant of times and experience the Civil War as you've never seen it before. The feature-length documentary Gettysburg: The Boys In Blue & Gray presents the crucial battle of the war as described by the soldiers who took part, with dramatic reconstructions and archive material bringing you closer than ever to the action. Additionally, a 24-page illustrated history of the conflict provides in-depth detail and context to the events of 1861-5, looking at the key engagements and personalities that shaped the outcome of the war. Also included is a selection of lovingly recreated replica memorabilia that brings history alive as you've never seen it before, with letters and battle maps revealing personal and military insights into the war that turned brother against brother. less...
