Book Review: Franklin Pierce, New Hampshire's Favorite Son and Franklin Pierce, Martyr for the Union -- by Peter A. Wallner, a two volume biography, highly readable. A fresh look at our 16th President, to date the only one from the Granite State.
One Hundred Famous
Founders -- by Meldrim Thomson, Jr.
Fresh profiles of key figures in America's Revolutionary period. A top notch selection and great resource for personal or school libraries by a former New Hampshire governor.
on Trial: Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science and the First Amendment,
Plaidswede, published 2014. Peter A. Wallner departs from the role of
presidential historian, to document a sensational turn-of-the century
court trial involving the aging founder of Christian Science. The story
played out across the country in the nationís tabloids, adding to legend
of Yellow Journalism in its prime. The players include celebrity writers
Willa Cather and Mark Twain, and one of the Granite Stateís most powerful
and colorful personalities, Publisher, US Senator, and Secretary of the
Navy, William Eaton Chandler. Like his two-volume biography of President
Franklin Pierce, Wallner combines his talent for careful research and a
clean, clear writing style that is well worth the read on a snowing New
Hampshire night, or on a not summer's day at the beach.
