From the Publisher

A rag-tag group of Apache warriors, led by an elderly man in his late seventies, took on the U.S. Army’s Ninth Cavalry in revenge for the death of Apache war chief Victorio. Using guerilla warfare, they led raids through New Mexico evading the Cavalry and Buffalo Soldiers. In the end, they won! Interesting historical characters abound, including Billy the Kid and author/politician Lew Wallace.

The Only Thing, Historically, That's Curbed Inequality: Catastrophe

Calls to make America great again hark back to a time when income inequality receded even as the economy boomed and the middle class expanded.

The pressures of total war became a uniquely powerful catalyst of equalizing reform, spurring unionization, extensions of voting rights, and the creation of the welfare state. During and after wartime, aggressive government intervention in the private sector and disruptions to capital holdings wiped out upper-class wealth and funneled r
