History of the Negro Soldiers in the Spanish-American War

History of the Negro Soldiers in the Spanish-American War – Edward Augustus Johnson.

MANY CAUSES LED up to the Spanish-American war. Cuba had been in a state of turmoil for a long time, and the continual reports of outrages on the people of the island by Spain greatly aroused the Americans. The “ten years war” had terminated, leaving the island much embarrassed in its material interests, and woefully scandalized by the methods of procedure adopted by Spain and principally carried out by General Campos and Weyler, the latter of whom was called the “butcher” on account of his alleged cruelty in attempting to suppress the former insurrection. There was no doubt much to complain of under his administration, for which the General himself was not personally responsible. He boasted that he only had three individuals put to death, and that in each of these cases he was highly justified by martial law.

True Stories of Old Houston and Houstonians

True Stories of Old Houston and Houstonians – Samuel Oliver Young

The stories in this book, historical and personal sketches, owe their being largely to chance. The whole series was unintentionally begun and the letters letters have come from all parts of the state and from several Eastern and Northern states. The stories are highly enjoyable, for each one will bring back some pleasant memory of oldtimes Houston.

Standard History of Houston, Texas

Standard History of Houston, Texas – Benajah Harvey Carroll

The Story of Houston has not proved an easy one to write. A city is in many respects a conglomeration of units rather than an aggregate of unities. the units are of character so varying that it is hard to reduce them to a common denominator. Municipal consciousness is vague and much that happens in the development of a city seems to be fortuitous rather than teleological. Yet Houston has in many respects grown to formula and plan and has often responded heartily to conscious effort made at improvement of conditions. The foundations of the past have been used and effort has been often cumulative in results. Undeniably there is a municipal spirit, an esprit du corps of the citizens that argues well for the future of the town. This book is breathing the history of Houston in 28 stunning and detailed chapters.

A Thumb-Nail History of the City of Houston, Texas

A Thumb-Nail History of the City of Houston, Texas – Samuel Oliver Young

This beautiful, small historical work is divided into twelve chapters, each devoted to some phase of the city’s activities and tracing its history from the inception of that interest to the year 1912. Chapter 1 gives an account of the founding of Houston and outlines its municipal history; Chapter 2 tells of the building activities, private and public, at different periods, and of the organization of fire companies; Chapter 3 does the same for railroad building, and gives some notes on the lawyers and doctors; many more chapters follow. Obviously. the book is far from being a complete history of Houston. There is enough history, however, to indicate the leading role Houston has played in the business enterprise of the State, and the wonderful transformation of the old Houston into a modern city.
