Description : Excerpt from Records of the American Catholic Historical Society of Philadelphia, Vol. 25 The Catholic atmosphere in which charity prospered and bloomed and in which man had attained his highest happiness has gradually been polluted by the literature which sprung from the loins of the Reformation. This literature is based upon the history of the last four hundred years as written in conspiracy against the truth for the justification of the deeds of the men who instigated and profited by the Reformation. It has taken its character from men who had lost the Christian ideal and sought ideals in nature. That the Reformation had its origin and growth in the greed and lust of men has been proven by both Catholic and Protestant writers. It was forced upon the people in England and Germany in the same way that Mohamedanism was forced upon the Turk. The privileges of taking what belonged to another was the price paid for adhesion to the new religion. What bribery could not accomplish was brought about by hardships, cruelties and even death for those who clung to the old faith. In time, the children, grand-children and great-grand-children of men who participated in this carnival of unrighteousness having forgotten the source of their prosperity and greatness saw only the traditional justification of the deeds which brought about the change. In England and Germany from the time of Henry VIII and Luther until quite recently history could only be written from the view point of those who were in sympathy with the Reformation. Wealth, opportunity for education, and things which lead to physical wellbeing were taken by brute force out of the hands of those who clung to the old faith and were given to those who opposed it.

Description : An analysis of the French colonies in North America that is central to the historical study of the United States. By the time French colonists sought a portion of the New World’s riches, much of those resources had already been claimed by Spain and Portugal. Once settled in North America, however, they quickly turned their attentions to commerce, specifically to trade within the Louisiana region. For almost 65 years French explorers and soldiers, administrators and accountants, focused on establishing a string of forts and small villages at key points in the Mississippi and Illinois River valleys, eastward to the Mobile River drainage and westward toward New Mexico. Despite a long and costly war at home, for a time it looked as though the French would be successful in controlling a vast swath of the middle of North America, with routes stretching from Quebec City to New Orleans. Under the guidance of leaders such as LaSalle, Joliet, Father Marquette, Frontenac, Hennepin, and Bienville, the French made a good start in the lucrative trading business and established working relationships with most of the Indians of the region. But by 1763, with war in Europe and a faltering economy at home, commerce in the New World eroded along with the ability of the French to control the region and to protect their investments from the encroachment of the Spanish and English. This volume reveals the wider scope of the French political and economic situation, as well as the minutiae of common barter and trade in Louisiana during the French Régime.

Description : Four men joined the Catholic Church in the mid-1840s: a soldier, his bishop brother, a priest born a slave and an editor. For the next two decades they were in the thick of the battles of the era--Catholicism versus Know-Nothingism, slavery versus abolition, North versus South. Much has been written about the Catholic Church and about the Civil War. This book is the first in more than half a century to focus exclusively on the intersection of these two topics.
