The Truth Be Damned is a tale of courage, intrigue, and self-discovery as a juror who served on the mob trial of the decade launches her own investigation into the injustices surrounding the complex case. Janet Uhlar served as a juror in the 2013 trial of mob boss, James (Whitey) J. Bulger.

Freedoms Cost

Nathanael Greene was George Washington’s most trusted confidant, friend, and general officer. Greene was a Quaker until 1774. With no military experience he would become known as the strategist of the American Revolution and Washington’s chosen second in command.

Liberty's Martyr: The Story of Dr. Joseph Warren

Dr. Joseph Warren was one of the foremost leaders in the years prior to, and the earliest months of the War for Independence. Once, his name was a staple of American classrooms, his valiant acts celebrated across the nation. Now, the memory of him has nearly vanished, obscured by the march of time. However, without Dr. Joseph Warren’s pivotal contributions, American History would be profoundly different.
