  • - Latinskole og den Danske skole ind til 1800
    von Torben Hansen
    17,00 €

    Denne bog fortæller om den proces, der lige efter reformationen i 1536 blev iværksat af kongen og biskopperne. De ville give bondebefolkningen og købstædernes beboere oplysning og skolegang. Derfor blev landets klosterskoler flyttet til Købstæderne, hvor undervisningen foregik på latin. Samtidig blev der "læse- og regneskoler" til dem, der ikke havde penge og evner til at komme på Latinskole, hvor undervisningen foregik på latin. Eleverne på den lokale skole blev derimod undervist på dansk. Slagelse Latinskole var blandt landets bedste skoler og dannede forbillede for andre skoler. Særligt Forstander embedet i Slagelse blev i perioder besat af landets bedste på området. Næsten modsat gik det med den "Danske skole", hvor undervisningen i perioder var fraværende. Bogen fortæller også om den meget høje standard, sang og musik havde for skolerne.

Og det er fuldt forståeligt.Bogen er ikke en detaljeret eller historisk gennemgang af Hammer Bakker. Men en samling af øjebliksbilleder, inspireret af de smukke sort-hvide fotos i Niels Hedins klassiske bakke-bog fra 1931365 snapshots som inspiration til, at opleve det Hammer Bakker, der ligger i anden række, af de mere velkendte seværdigheder. Inspiration til at søge udenfor stierne, og gå på skattejagt i Bakkerne, der indeholder så meget mere, end man oplever, fra de mere autoriserede vandreruter.

  • - Billeder og beretninger fra tidligere ansatte og deres familier
    von Gitte Ahrenkiel
    26,00 €

    Denne nye udgave muliggjorde genoptryk i farver takket være støtte fra Møenbogaardfonden, januar 2014. I juni 2014 mødte fem døtre af forvalterparret Dørum (1945-55) op på Friisenfeldt for at gense deres barndomshjem og samtidig bidrage til et supplerende kapitel i det, der er blevet 3. revideret udgave af bogen om Friisenfeldt – en arbejdsplads.Udarbejdelsen af 3. revideret udgave har desuden betydet, at bogens format er sat op i større størrelse samt er aktuelle fotos indsat af hhv. FLS-Aeromotor møllen og Østersøskolen ved Gedser Landevej. Fotos viser nedrivning af bygningerne, 13. august 2014. Projektet tog sin begyndelse i sommeren 2013, hvor der i dagene 9-11. august for første gang blev afholdt "Fyrstival" i Gedser. Eventen omfattede blandt meget andet gøgl, gadeteater og guidede rundvisninger. Danmarks sydligste gård Friisenfeldt, beliggende på Gedser Odde, var forsøgsvist programsat med guidede rundvisninger i tidsrummet 13-17.Vi, dvs. festivalens arrangør Yvonne Halskov og jeg, Gitte Ahrenkiel, der bor til leje i stuehuset på Friisenfeldt, havde ingen anelse om, hvordan festivalens gæster ville reagere på denne mulighed. Det skulle imidlertid vise sig, at folk allerede indfandt sig tidlig formiddag og at "Lukketiden" kl. 17 samtlige tre dage blev overskredet.Flere tidligere ansatte mødte op til rundvisningerne for at gense deres gamle arbejdsplads. Meget fra dengang står stort set uforandret, fx den gamle kostald, karle- og pigekamre. Til stor fornøjelse for os, der guidede og for gæster, som af nysgerrighed deltog i rundvisningerne, fik de tidligere ansatte vakt de støvede bygninger til live med fortællinger om en tid, hvor der var køer og heste i staldene.Blandt de tidligere ansatte, der aflagde Friisenfeldt besøg i 2013, var Verner Christensen og hans familie. I perioden 1956-57 havde han fungeret som underforvalter på Friisenfeldt for senere at få fæste som forvalter på Ludvigsgave. Helt spontant tilbød Verner Christensen at sende fotos fra dengang. Og det var disse fotos fra Verner Christensen som inspirerede andre tidligere ansatte til at gå på jagt i fotoalbums, skuffer og skabe - for at finde materiale frem til vores fælles bogprojekt: Friisenfeldt - en Arbejdsplads.De indleverede beretninger har betydet en samtidig afspejling af Sydfalsters historie og undervejs i forløbet har Gedser Lokalhistoriske Arkiv spillet en central rolle.

  • - A History of Sion Row, Twickenham
    von Robert Shepherd
    152,00 €

    Twickenham is chiefly known today as the home of rugby, but its heyday could be said to be in the eighteenth century when first Alexander Pope and then Horace Walpole made it their home and extolled its Arcadian setting.Captain Gray, a naval officer, acquired plots of land close to the river in Twickenham in 1718 on which he built two rows of houses, Sion Row and Montpelier Row, which survive to this day and are much admired.This book tells the story of Sion Row, which was built for Gray by a remarkable local craftsman, Edward Reeves, who had ambition to become an architect. It explains the features of the houses and how they were built. It then follows them through to the present day showing how they were used and what modifications have been made to them and, not least, how they survived.In parallel we learn of the owners and the residents, many of whom have fascinating stories to tell. They are immensely diverse, some international, some purely local, some disreputable, others pillars of respectability.Their lives are put in the context of changes in Twickenham as it evolved from out of town retreat to prosperous commuter suburb. In telling the story of these houses and people, a remarkable social history is revealed.

    Along the bayous of south Louisiana, with its majestic oak trees draped in Spanish moss, open prairies teeming with wildlife, and lush primeval forest, the Chitimacha lived long before the first white settlers arrived in the Attakapas District around 1746. The newcomers would travel by oxcart and boat along waterways lined in flowering magnolias, pecan trees, and grapevines to establish new homesteads. In April 1811, a territorial act that divided Attakapas County created St. Mary Parish. Sugarcane plantations with idyllic names such as Idlewild and Shady Side were established, and timber, trapping, fishing, and agriculture prospered. Later, oil and gas with its many support industries became part of the rich heritage of south Louisiana. The first settlers endured many hardships: floods, storms, outbreaks of yellow fever, and the challenges of the Civil War. St. Mary Parish has seen its share of changes over the centuries, but the tenacity, resourcefulness, and pride of the people remain as constant and endless as the slowly flowing waters of the bayous to the Gulf of Mexico.

    While engaged in organizing his previous book, the author was only aware of the existence of one other seventeenth century tithable list for Northampton County, Virginia, and that was for the year 1666. Since that time the author has discovered two known lists (1667 and 1674) that had remained unpublished from the early Order Books and has found lists for 1662-1669, 1671 and 1674-1677, buried, largely unknown, in other early Order Books. The large volume of unpublished tithables material was enough for the author to consider making a useful transcription for researchers. Covering the early years of Northampton County, after Accomack County was formed, these tithables will be particularly of interest to those doing research on early inhabitants of the Virginia Colony. The tithables show the heads-of-families, and, in most cases, an every name listing of those black and white tithables in the household. Widows are shown (if head of household) thus establishing the recent death of a husband. Male children and slave tithables at twelve (or sixteen) help estimate date of birth or (probable) latest date of parent's marriage. Occupation or comments (such as, son of...) are often the only source of such valuable knowledge. Appearance or disappearance on the list may be a clue to migration patterns. These lists were sometimes badly torn, or blotted, or faded, or difficult to read, or poorly written, but, nevertheless, revealing. They are offered here as near as possible to the original orthography, and are an absolute must to those interested in early Virginia genealogy and history.

  • - Political Change in the Electorate
    von Mark Owens
    42,00 - 47,00 €

    Texas is a solid red state. Or trending purple. Or soon to be blue. One thing is certain: as Texas looms ever larger in national politics, the makeup of its electorate increasingly matters. At a critical moment, as migration, immigration, and a maturing populace alter the state's political landscape, this book presents a deeply researched, data-rich look at who Texas voters are, what they want, and what it might mean for the future of the Republican and Democratic parties, the state, and the nation. Battle for the Heart of Texas goes beyond the pronouncements of leaders and pundits to reveal voters' nuanced opinions--about the 2020 Democratic primary candidates, state and national Republicans' responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, and issues such as immigration and gun policy. Working with an unprecedented cache of polling figures and qualitative data from surveys and focus groups--the product of a cooperative effort between the Dallas Morning News and The University of Texas at Tyler--Mark Owens, Kenneth A. Wink, and Kenneth Bryant Jr. provide an in-depth examination of what is reshaping voter preferences across Texas, including the partisan impact of the urbanization and nationalization of state politics. Their analyses pinpoint the influence of race, media exposure, ideological diversity within the parties, and geographic variation across the state, detailing how Texas politics has changed over time. Race may not have typically defined Texas politics, for instance, but the authors find that rhetoric on policies related to race are now shaping the electorate. The diversity in civic engagement among the Latino community also emerges from the data, compounded and complicated by the growth of the Latino population of voting age. The largest red state in the country, with the second-largest population, Texas is crucial to the way we think about political change in America--and this book amply and precisely equips us to understand the bellwether state's changing politics.

    When the bloodiest labor dispute in U.S. history burst forth in 1913-14 in the coal fields of Southern Colorado, the miners knew whom to praise, and the owners knew whom to blame. Mary Harris Jones, known from New York to Colorado as Mother Jones, could incite a riot or calm a crowd with her amazing oratory gifts. She dedicated her life to helping miners organize to negotiate, even demand, better wages and working conditions."I hope there is no war in Trinidad," Mother Jones had said, referring to the entire Trinidad coal field expanse, "for it will cause suffering. But if the war has to be made that the boys in the mines may have their rights-let it come!" In the long run, did she help or harm the progress toward workers' rights? Were the deaths of mothers and children at Ludlow too great a price to pay?
