Tales from the Rails 2  - $15.00,  is an entertaining compilation of newspaper articles, stories and photos following the history of the railroad in Sheboygan County. Some are humorous, some are serious, and some are downright shocking.  Great reading for the railroad enthusiast and amateur alike. This is a follow-up to Tales from the Rails originally published in 1999.

​More great reading from rail enthusiast, Peter Fetterer.

 Americans continue to laud and venerate the memory of Abraham Lincoln. His rise from poverty to the presidency continues to have the power to fascinate and inspire. Yet, the Lincoln of history and the historical Lincoln are very often two different people. The facts of Lincoln’s life came to light gradually, with relatives, friends, colleagues, and scholars battling with each other over what to believe and what to disclose. Writing about Lincoln became a business. Lincoln’s friends fought with each other; relatives censored material; books were bought and burned; scholars debated and denounced one another.  This course follows the development of Lincoln biography immediately after Lincoln’s assassination through World War 2.  Come and learn “how we got the Lincoln we got.”
