Those of you who subscribe to The Americanist Independent will surely recall the wonderful collection of WWII letters written by Navy Aviator Bill Evans – published in issue three earlier this year.
On this national day of remembrance, December 7, 2014, I suggest we all revisit – or have a first look at his reflections on the attack, written only hours after the event. Subscriptions to the journal are free – and you can access the particular issue HERE.
Do you want to know more about the Atomic Energy Commission in the 1950s? Well now’s your chance.
How about Standard Oil president and avid collector of Shakespeare, Henry Clay Folger. Well here you go.

Have you ever wondered what makes a WWII reenactor tick? Well guess what…
You’ll see from this shot of the Table of Contents that we are featuring some mighty fine work this month. I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE immediately. There is a miniscule monthly $4.97 fee, which is a lot less than most things you buy throughout the day (for example, a hamburger, a pack of smokes, a drink at a bar, and in some places, a gallon of gas). And unlike most things, these published resources last a lifetime. A good investment. If you a already a member – well great. LOG ON and enjoy.
Oh, and one last thing, the AI monthly publication is mobile responsive. So if you insist on staring at your iPhone (or other fine device) all day anyway, you might as well be reading something worthwhile. The mobile version supports all the multi-media functions including audio and video, plus it’s entirely searchable. Neat.
