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!!!

From the blog

Who Won the War of 1812?

September 24, 2023

In both the British Parliament and the Foreign Office, many influential MPs and diplomats were still smarting from the loss of the Thirteen Colonies in 1783. They viewed the United States as a rebellious child that had run amok and needed to be taught a lesson. Eventually, English politicians thought the U.S. would come to its senses and rejoin the Empire. As a result, the British Parliament passed laws knowing they would anger U.S. citizens. Yet, despite the animosity caused by the British Parliament’s high-handed actions, the United Kingdom remained the U.S.’s largest trading partner.

Doomed to Failure and Disgrace

September 17, 2023

Madison and his secretary of war, William Eustis, now had a war on their hands. When they took office, they inherited an Army and Navy that had been horribly underfunded since the end of the war against the Barbary Pirates in 1805.

The Navy’s Unpreparedness for War in 1812

September 10, 2023

When James Madison asked for a declaration of war in June 1812, the U.S. Navy only had 14 ships capable of operating outside coastal waters. Once again, the U.S. Navy would face the well-trained and equipped battle-tested Royal Navy.

First Bank of the United States

September 3, 2023

Hamilton was convinced that unless the U.S. got its monetary house in order, it would fail as a country. Goal one was to bring financial order to the U.S. economy. After the War for Independence ended, each state was chartering banks, and there were no standardized rules for their charters, reserves, or how they operated. Hamilton wanted the Federal bank at the top of the financial pyramid with the state banks one level down.
