On June 23, 1900, the Southern Railroad Company's Engine #7 and its passengers were greeted by a tremendous storm en route to Atlanta, Georgia. Stalled for some time in nearby McDonough, travelers grew impatient as rain pelted the roof and wind buffeted the cars. When finally given the go-ahead, their resulting joy was short-lived: the locomotive soon reached Camp Creek--and disaster. After weeks of constant showers, the swollen creek had eroded the bridge supports. Under the train's weight, the bridge collapsed, and all but nine perished in either the fiery fall or watery depths. With the help of local newspapers and eyewitness accounts, Georgia historian and professor Jeffery C. Wells recounts this tragic tale.

A Journey To Hell and Back is a gripping saga of a young woman's journey from adolescence to adulthood at an accelerated pace. This book is an exploration of a troubled teen's journey into the underworld to emerge as an independent, confident, and self-assured woman. Pitfalls, tragedy, and trials that lure a young honor student into the mean streets of Atlanta and finally, New York mark the story. Her journey to hell led her through a fiery furnace that burned 70 % of her body with 2nd and 3rd degree burns, and an over three months hospital stay where God provided personal consolation and healing. After God miraculously saved her from a life in the streets heaped with sin, her zeal for God resulted in her making additional mistakes, including renewing the abusive relationship that had almost cost her life. The story is a modern day version of Dante's Inferno. Each layer of Hell corresponds with a new low in the protagonist's life. Finally, from within the very bowels of Hell, she cries out to the Lord for salvation. This spiritual epiphany becomes a turning point in her life, thrusting her forward from Hell. The tremendous suffering and miraculous ending of this book will offer hope and comfort for anyone suffering from loneliness, heartache, or disappointment. It provides a realistic and human perspective on many social topics such as teenage rebellion and pregnancy, domestic violence, divorce, AIDS, substance abuse, prostitution, and the legal system. It is a necessity for anyone who has been a part or will work with any of these populations.

African-Americans live today in a society where the realities of life seem to fly in the face of the promises of God. Young black men in particular face a double dilemma: 'a hell that dares them to achieve and at the same time annihilates them for cutting against the grain.' It is a dilemma that reaps a whirlwind of anger and despair. But according to leading black ministers in Living in Hell, African-Americans can reclaim their identity and direction--through faith in God, belief in self, and a solid moral base. Using compelling examples from the Old and New Testaments, Living in Hell illustrates the triumphs, mistakes, and challenges of the modern African-American Christian. Eighteen potent sermons and essays address such vital topics as -- How blackness is a blessing - Why no one can rescue African-Americans but themselves - How all the resources necessary to change the status quo can be marshaled from within a unified, revitalized black church.

Go to Hell or Atlanta, Whichever Comes First is a special printed project created by the celebrated American artist Kara Walker in collaboration with Ari Marcopoulos.The project, which comprises a twenty-four-page booklet with an accordion cover, was produced to accompany Walker's first exhibition at Victoria Miro, London, in autumn 2015.The project documents a trip by the artist and Marcopoulos to Stone Mountain in Georgia. The main tourist attraction there is a large stone mountain into which has been carved a monument to three Confederate generals.Consecrated in the 1970s, the monument, and hence the mountain itself, is thus a contentious symbol of white supremacy and the struggle for race equality in the South and beyond.Featuring a newly commissioned text from James Hannaham and a conversation between Walker and Marcopoulos, the project presents photographic documentation along with a selection of the powerful drawings and paintings produced by Walker during and following her trip.

"Editors Ted Genoways and Hugh H. Genoways have collected the soldiers' startling accounts from diaries, letters, speeches, newspaper articles, and remembrances. Arranged chronologically, the eyewitness descriptions of the battles of Shiloh, Corinth, Jackson, and Tupelo, together with accompanying accounts of nearly every famous Confederate prison, create a shared vision of life in Civil War prisons as palpable and immediate as they are historically valuable. Captured four times during the course of the war, the 12th Iowa created narratives that reveal a picture of the changing southern prison system as the Confederacy grew ever weaker and illustrate the growing animosity many southerners felt for the Union soldiers."--BOOK JACKET.
