Video Podcast

When I first started my YouTube channel, the plan was to provide “teasers” on speeches as well as insight into each book. Well, that has evolved. So, what you’ll start seeing on my channel are recordings of speeches, albeit edited a bit as well as videos on specific topics.

I plan to add the videos frequently which may be recorded in a studio, in front of a live audience or in the privacy of my office. The content is going to be interesting and often shed fresh light on old topics, or cover topics of interest to those who have read my novels and those who don’t. 

The focus is going to be on aviation, but I reserve the right to add a my two cents to a timely topic.

So stay tuned, and most of all SUBSCRIBE!!!

Members of the Continental Congress saw the lines drawn on a map as blatant land grabs by the individual states. So, what could the Continental Congress do?

The Trade That Led to Creation of D.C.

April 14, 2024

A national capital was not a new idea. Several sites were proposed under the Articles of Confederation, and all were in either NY, NJ, or PA, something the southern states would not accept. Under the Articles of Confederation, the Continental Congress did not have the power to create a national capital, so the issue died until the new Constitution empowered the Federal government to create a home.

England’s Country Children

April 7, 2024

What the new United States didn’t have was a stable currency, or a central bank or a strong central government, the yoke of British rule was gone.
