Jefferson_To Begin the World Again_Front

In May of 1776, at the age of 33, Thomas Jefferson was one of the youngest members of the Second Continental Congress. A political up-and-comer from Virginia, he was appointed to a small committee tasked with drafting a document to declare that the American colonies were to be free and independent states - absolved from all allegiance to the British crown.

The committee, which included John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, elected Jefferson as the principal drafter of this declaration of independence. Over the days that followed, Jefferson was largely sequestered away writing in his boardinghouse. His quill scratched the paper, black ink unwinding from the tip in an expression of the American mind against the tyranny of Britain. 


Jefferson firmly believed in the necessity of ending slavery, yet knew his own hands were stained with his own tyranny. Could he incorporate abolition into this declaration?

Step inside the story of the creation of a document that would shape not only America’s history, but that of the World’s.

“Laura Kamoie draws upon her deep knowledge and appreciation of Thomas Jefferson's unique contributions and deep contradictions in this lively and informative depiction of his role in shaping the foundation of the United States of America.  More than that though, she shows us in a moving coda how Jefferson's work on the Declaration of Independence has inspired generations of people seeking the blessings of liberty ever since.”

Lars Hedbor, author of the Tales from a Revolution series

“With beautiful writing and a deep understanding of her subject matter, Laura Kamoie brings life to the young, conflicted, idealist, Thomas Jefferson, in the momentous summer of 1776, when he is asked to write the document that would change his life and forge a new nation.”

Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of Lily of the Nile & The Women of Chateau Lafayette

To Begin the World Again

Korean War Memorial_Unforgotten_Front Co

The Korean War is often said to be our “Forgotten War”. Perhaps because it was a war that never officially ended. The hostilities concluded with a fragile armistice that left the two Koreas separated by a demilitarized zone, studded with mine fields and snarled in barbed wire.

The American veterans of the Korean War bravely answered a call that came not only from their own country but from the United Nations, travelling halfway around the world to thwart a naked act of Communist aggression.

These men, known as the Silent Generation, took part in the rescue of a small vulnerable country, then returned home, resuming their lives with little fanfare.

Step inside the story of one man’s acts of heroism in one of the most ferocious battles of the War. One story, among many, that should never be forgotten. Here is Jack Chapman’s story.

“Superb . . . There is no finer example of American fighting men at their best when the times were at their worst.”

FDR_Courage and Determination_Front Cove

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the longest serving President in U.S. history - winning four Presidential elections. He saw America through the Great Depression and through World War II, dying just months before it ended.

Born into America’s upper class, FDR lived inside the highest circles of power and wealth.  He was athletic and handsome and enjoyed all the privileges life offered.  Until, at the age of 40, tragedy struck.


Step Inside the Story of FDR’s polio diagnosis and learn how this test of personal hardship shaped the man and the President he would become.  Inspired by those around him, including his wife Eleanor and the ordinary Americans he met during his recovery, FDR found the Courage & Determination to fight for not just his own survival, but for the common good of all Americans.

This Memorial stands to honor the service of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War. It was a war like no other – in both battle tactics as well as the lingering political controversy. However, there is no doubt that these men fought to preserve the American way of life; to shield us from the red tide of communism before it crossed the oceans and crashed into our shores. Our BARDEUM experience relives the story of a single mission; one that offers just a glimpse into the honor, loyalty and sacrifice of the men who served.

Vietnam_Behind Enemy Lines_Front Cover.j

It’s dusk, and not even the scent of fuel and oil hanging in the humid heat, could repel the smell of blood and death as medics raced about, triaging the wounded as they were pulled from the belly of the work horse of Vietnam—a Huey helicopter that had just barely hobbled back to the base, riddled with bullet holes.

Just a few yards from the helicopter’s skids, a row of U.S. government-issued body bags lay on the ground. Inside one of the zippered tombs is a stocky, five-foot-six-inch-tall 32 year old U.S. Army Green Beret staff sergeant from Cuero, Texas named Roy Benavidez. His body—a torn up canvas of bullet holes, shrapnel wounds, bayonet lacerations, punctures, burns, and bruises—painted a bloody portrait of his valor.

What happened in the hours previous - and in the moments after - became the stuff of Legend.
