Alfred Dreyfus (1859)
In 1894, French Army intelligence discovered that military secrets were being leaked to Germany. Dreyfus, a Jewish captain in the French Army, was blamed and convicted—twice—on insufficient and forged evidence. He was imprisoned on Devil's Island. The affair became a national scandal amid reports that the army, permeated by anti-Semitism, had covered up evidence of his innocence. He was pardoned by the president in 1899 and cleared by a civilian court in 1906. Who was probably the real traitor? More...

A clipper ship and a class of locomotive were named for Lind, as was what piece of furniture? More...

I am an author living in New Milford, Ct. and I have written a book that I believe would be of interest to many readers. It is not only the true story of a daring sea rescue, but also gives insight into the world between the wars; the rise of communism, fascism, the true story of the Spanish Civil War as well as the fantastic little known story of how a Marine general saved America from a coup that would have made the United States a fascist nation. It tells of how the pseudoscience of Eugenics led to the Holocaust and the Climate Change movement for those who can take the truth. I welcome all research into the facts that I have presented as it would give the reader much more information on what I have barely touched. Thank you in advance for your time.
