It Doesn’t End with Us is the history of the Daily Cardinal, the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 115-year-old student newspaper. It is the story of deadlines and datelines, dating and mating, rock and roll, indie films, and protest politics. It’s the story of two World Wars and two worker strikes, a shutdown, a bombing, and a centennial birthday. It’s the story of long nights and longer days in a windowless basement, of journalism on the edge, and of college kids discovering their dreams.250 pages, 5.5x8.5, 2007, 5.5x8.5, paper, 250 pp, Softcover, Heritage Boo...

Packed full of action and drama: soldiers march, ships sail, guns roar; generals fall, villages burn and scalping knives drip with gore. These unaltered newspaper articles consist of letters, reports and perhaps a few exaggerations; still, they represent the type of information that was flowing from the printing presses to the general public. The battle for Quebec on the Plains of Abraham occurred on September 13, 1759, but news traveled slowly and the citizens in Boston waited in suspense until mid-October for confirmation of that British victory. The newspapers continued to feature eyewitnes... View more info

The years 1766 through 1775 were turbulent times for the city of Boston, Massachusetts, immortalized by a series of incidents that would set in motion one of the most significant events in the history of the Western world. The heightening tensions between the British Empire and her upstart American colonies would be played to an irreconcilable stalemate in Boston Harbor and in the streets, in the offices of government officials and merchants, in the homes and businesses of common citizens, in the public houses, and on the pages of the daily news.

By 1760, the capitulation of Canada by the French and Canadians all but ended the French & Indian War. Blockaded by the powerful British Navy, the people of New France might have been lacking in provisions, but certainly not in fighting spirit. Attempts to retake Montreal and Louisbourg stretched the resources of the British forces, who also were fending off the Creeks and the Cherokees on the western frontier. As if that weren't enough, the best troops and generals in British service were sent to the West Indies, participating in fierce battles for control of Martinique and Cuba. Although the...
