In 1795, a teenager discovered a mysterious circular depression in the ground on Oak Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada, and ignited rumors of buried treasure. Early excavators uncovered a clay-lined shaft containing layers of soil interspersed with wooden platforms, but when they reached a depth of ninety feet, water poured into the shaft and made further digging impossible. Since then the mystery of Oak Island’s “Money Pit” has enthralled generations of treasure hunters, including a Boston insurance salesman whose obsession ruined him; young Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and film star Errol Flynn. Perplexing discoveries have ignited explorers’ imaginations: a flat stone inscribed in code; a flood tunnel draining from a man-made beach; a torn scrap of parchment; stone markers forming a huge cross. Swaths of the island were bulldozed looking for answers; excavation attempts have claimed two lives. Theories abound as to what’s hidden on Oak Island—pirates’ treasure, Marie Antoinette’s lost jewels, the Holy Grail, proof that Sir Francis Bacon was the true author of Shakespeare’s plays—yet to this day, the Money Pit remains an enigma. The Curse of Oak Island is a fascinating account of the strange, rich history of the island and the intrepid treasure hunters who have driven themselves to financial ruin, psychotic breakdowns, and even death in pursuit of answers. And as Michigan brothers Marty and Rick Lagina become the latest to attempt to solve the mystery, as documented on the History Channel’s television show The Curse of Oak Island, Sullivan takes readers along to follow their quest firsthand.
Occultée par la vision littéraire antagoniste de La Case de l'oncle Tom et d'Autant en emporte le vent, la guerre de Sécession demeure méconnue. Elle fut pourtant un conflit majeur qui marque le passage de l'ère napoléonienne du combat, centré sur la bataille, à la " guerre totale " qu'elle annonce par ses pertes massives, la mobilisation des civils et l'innovation constante manifeste dans l'invention des cuirassés, des sous-marins, l'utilisation stratégique de chemins de fer ou le recours à la tranchée comme moyen de fixation de l'adversaire. Pour raconter cette guerre sans précédent, il fallait un historien d'envergure internationale. Dans la lignée de ses synthèses renommées sur les deux guerres mondiales, John Keegan retrace les grandes batailles (Bull Run, Gettysburg) et le duel des généraux (Lee contre Grant), mais il fait aussi une large part aux enjeux stratégiques, à l'analyse psychologique et à certains aspects trop souvent négligés comme l'approvisionnement, la géographie militaire ou le rôle des Noirs dans le conflit. La victoire du Nord industriel contre le Sud rural marqua au fer rouge la jeune République, mais la baptisa aussi comme grande puissance en lui conférant un messianisme démocratique, assis sur le progrès économique, qui allait lui ouvrir les portes de la domination du monde. Ce livre qui fera date permet ainsi de comprendre comment la déchirure de deux peuples fonda une nation.
The Oak Island mystery has been the world’s greatest and strangest treasure hunt, and after years of research the authors have finally solved the sinister with an answer that is challenging, controversial, and disturbing. In 1795 three boys discovered the top of an ancient shaft on uninhabited Oak Island in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The boys began to dig, and what they uncovered started the world’s greatest and strangest treasure hunt but nobody knows what the treasure is. Two hundred years of courage, back-breaking effort, ingenuity, and engineering skills have failed to retrieve what is concealed there. Theories of what the treasure could be include Captain Kidd’s bloodstained pirate gold, an army payroll left by the French or British military engineers, priceless ancient manuscripts, the body of an Arif or other religious refugee leader, or the lost treasure of the Templars. The Oak Island curse prophesies that the treasure will not be found until seven men are dead and the last oak has fallen. That last oak has already gone, and six treasure hunters have been killed. After years of research, the authors have finally solved the sinister riddle of Oak Island, but their answer is challenging, controversial, and disturbing. Something beyond price still lies waiting in the labyrinth.
Astounding facts surrounding old and new unexplained events and occurences.
