Number 8

Start out your weekend, by listening to the latest – and extended – chapter of our oral reading of the Bride of the Tomb. Continue on with a host of newly added letters and documents in the Father Middleton Collection. Bonus points for the hardy readers who explore several of our newly added Beadles dime novels and in this summer heat lean to make ice cream in How to make candy! Thrill to newly added rare Civil-War-era newspaper issues and read the dramatic coverage of the Assassination of President Lincoln and his funeral.
