“Anne thought she heard a car drive up at 8:10 pm, but it was not until 8:25 pm, half an hour later than usual that Lindbergh honked his horn in the drive. In those 15 minutes, he could have laid the body in the woods and returned home” (Hudson). Obviously there is evidence that proves Bruno Hauptmann was guilty, but handwriting experts claim the ransom notes were similar to Hauptmann’s but not identical meaning someone tried to forge it.

During moments of stress, however, the melodic lilt gave way to a sound similar to a rasp drawn across violin strings. In the year just past, since the death of their daughter, ten-year-old, Laura, who had succumbed quickly to a sudden fever, it was the rasp that made the music in their household. Caroline narrowed her eyes and bent her head forward, rooting him to the spot with a hot glare. “He is a United States senator1, Giles, the first one this state ever had. He is the man who surveyed Michigan, made it what it is, and he was the one that fought to get us the statehood you thought was so all-fired important, and he is one of the biggest farmers in these parts, probably the whole state for all we know”.
John Daniel Barry, an American novelist, once said, “Society is the mother of us all.” The article “What Unites These States?” by Phillip Caputo, the “Oklahoma Bombing Memorial Address” given by President Bill Clinton, and “The Gettysburg Address” speech spoken by Abraham Lincoln all have one thing in common. The works all support the idea that the unity of men is more powerful than individualism. Society can get more work done in a timely manner than an individual during a crisis. Caputo writes, “A coordinator at the volunteer center told us that more than 14,000 people from every state in the union pitched in.” After a devastating tornado ripped through Tuscaloosa, Alabama, people united together to help rebuild the city. If society did
A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer is the tragic story of Dave Pelzer’s childhood from ages four to twelve (Pelzer, xi). By defying all odds Dave survived his highly abusive alcoholic mother who referred to him not as a child but as an “it” (Pelzer, 30, 140). From being punched, forced to eat ammonia, and even stabbed, Dave’s story is regarded as one of the worst child abuse cases ever in California history (Pelzer, 3, 74, 87, book blurb). Dave’s mom was not always an abusive witch. According to Dave, “In the years before I was abused, my family was the “Brady Bunch” of the 1960’s” (Pelzer, 17).
Sybil Ludington became famous for her ride to warn the Patriot militia of the British coming, similar to that of Paul Revere, but Sybil was only 16 years old. She completed her mission around daybreak of the night of April 26, 1777 at 9 pm, covering nearly 40 miles—more than twice what Paul Revere had ridden—raising 400 men, and even fighting off a highway man with her father 's musket. The militia caught up with the retreating British and beat them back, too late to stop the attack, but not too late to make them pay dearly. Sybil received personal thanks from both Gen. George Washington and Gen. Rochambeau, the French commander fighting with the Americans. Sybil’s story in America’s founding history, shows the qualities of patriotism, freedom, and youthful energy.
