Whose Birthday Is It? February 13, 2020 | The Bronx Chronicle

Grant Wood (1891)

Wood was an American artist famous for painting scenes from the rural Midwest that feature austere people and stylized landscapes. Born in Iowa, Wood traveled to Europe in the 1920s and was exposed to the late medieval primitive painting style that would later influence his own art. One of the best-known icons of American art, his American Gothic features a stern Midwestern farmer holding a pitchfork and a woman who is often assumed to be the farmer's wife but is not. Who is she? 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.
