History -- written as it happened 120 years ago! Crime, accidents, commerce, entertainment, government, politics, transportatipn, births, deaths, marriages, anniversaries -- everything you expect in a newspaper! Tours of the Effingham Foundry and the Vandalia roundhouse, great account of the 1885 4th of July parade, and much more. Several stories are followed over a period of weeks or months. Includes surname index, introduction. Since the Volksblatt was a German-language newspaper, there's a special emphasis on German-Americans, but of course non-German newsmakers are also covered. Original German and English translation side-by-side.

The book is available for immediate shipment.  Please send e-mail to arrange payment via Paypal, check, or money order.
