Book Description:
On a cold wet May day in 1813, during the War of 1812, Colonel William Dudley led a green regiment of Kentucky militia against the British and their Indian allies in an effort to relieve the siege of Fort Meigs. Their effort to capture the British cannons on the shore opposite Fort Meigs proved to be a success. Their failure to follow orders and return to their boats and cross over to the safety of Fort Meigs would lead to what would become known as Dudley s Defeat or the Dudley Massacre. Base on several years of research, James Emch has pieced together a chronological running narrative of the Dudley Massacre based on military reports, accounts of those present, family histories, old manuscripts, and diaries. The result of his effort is the first book ever written about those fateful events on May 5, 1813, that helped changed the old Northwest Territory forever. "

Book Description:
In this new, expanded edition of Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails—issued for the 100th Anniversary of National Prohibition—historian, expert, and drink aficionado Dr. Cocktail vastly widens his examination of 1920–1933, the thirteen-year period when women got the Vote, child labor was abolished and, ironically, saw the cocktail elevated, prolonged, and expanded, spreading this signature American drink form in tasty ripples around the world. All this, plus more drink recipes! Nothing is so desired as the thing denied. Prohibition made people want cocktails very, very badly. Because "synthetic" liquor was the easiest to make, it was also the easiest to get. Problematically, it tasted awful and wasn't exactly good for you either. Cocktails with their mélange of flavors were a made-to-order method for disguising the bad hooch. Along with 100+ rare and delicious authentic recipes gathered from old cocktail manuals and scraps of paper never published, this illustrated trip down mixology lane tells the fascinating origins of the cocktail and how it evolved over time, including its rising popularity during Prohibition. Vintage illustrations and advertisements, photos of old bottles and cocktail artifacts, and fascinating Prohibition-era photographs bring the tippling past back to vivid life. Recipes for rare treasures like The Fogcutter, Knickerbocker à la Monsieur, The Moscow Mule, and Satan’s Whiskers are each presented with: Historical background on its origin and cultural context Drink Notes that provide additional information on ingredients and tips for substitutions and variations Fascinating historical ephemera from Dr. Cocktail's personal collection This homage to the great bartenders of the past and the beverages they created also profiles some of the most influential cocktail pioneers of today. For anyone who enjoys an icy drink and an unforgettable tale, this is a must-have volume.
