Money As Debt DVD: How money is created?
I mean, you know how you earn it but where does it really come
from? The answer may just shock you. It shocked me.
I watched this video on line. It is so good at explaining the conceptual notion of
money that I wanted to own hard copy of it. The process of money creation is so
astounding and so important for all of us to finally understand, I wanted to
make the DVD easy for others to obtain. So I contacted the author in Canada and
bought some to distribute here.

In going beyond the scope of biographical works, Vetter researched Sherman's

SHERMAN: Merchant of Terror, Advocate of Peace
By Charles Edmund Vetter, Ph.D.
352 pp. 6 1/8 x 9¼
To the South he was a barbarian. To the North he was a hero.
To historians he was a man who changed the course of American military history
and reshaped military strategy.
William Tecumseh Sherman was a man driven by an intense desire to be a
successful soldier. Using superior intellect, practical observation, and logical
reasoning, he developed his theory of "Total War." He then put his theories to
the ultimate test and emerged victorious in Civil War battles from Shiloh to
SHERMAN: Merchant of Terror, Advocate of Peace is not another
biography of the Civil War general. Instead, it analyzes Sherman's philosophy of
war. This investigative book examines the personality of this famous figure and
the influences behind his military philosophy, tracing back to his military
beginnings at West Point and including his relationship with General Grant and
their shared perspective on the goal of war.
A noted Sherman scholar, Dr. Charles Edmund Vetter evaluates Sherman's place in
the full context of military history and explains the
sociological impact of the general's actions and the resulting devastation.
Vetter claims that Sherman's war against the economic, political, and social
systems of the South during his March to the Sea were crucial in establishing
superiority over the South's military.

The Flags of Civil War North Carolina
By Glenn Dedmondt
Flags stir powerful emotions, and few objects evoke such a sense of duty and
love of one’s homeland. In April 1861, the first flag of a new republic flew
over North Carolina. The state had just seceded from the union, and its citizens
would soon have to fight for their homes, their families, and their way of life.
The Flags of Civil War North Carolina is the history of this short-lived
republic (which later joined the Confederacy), told through the banners that
flew over its government, cavalry, and navy. From the hand-painted flag of the
Guilford Greys to the flag of the Buncombe Riflemen--made from the dresses of
the ladies of Asheville--this collection is an exceptional tribute to the
valiant men who bore these banners and to their ill-fated crusade for

From the end of 1860 through the spring of 1861,
representatives from throughout Arkansas gathered to discuss the option
of secession. The question had been put to the legislators multiple times, but
Unionist tendencies prevailed in Arkansas, and the state was not among the first
to secede. On May 6, 1861, however, the representatives of the "Nary One" state
met and decided that Arkansas belonged with her Southern brothers and voted 69

men to serve in defense of the South, and each of the companies and regiments
proudly bore a banner to represent their cause. In this painstakingly researched

regiment flags. Included are the Bonnie Blue Flag, the First National Flag of
