Excerpt from The History of the Town of Lyndeborough, New Hampshire, 1735-1905 It is said that many years ago some of our most gifted and intelligent citizens felt that the history of Lyndeborough ought to be written while aged men and women were still living whose recollection reached back to the later days of many of the pioneers. Had it been commenced then, doubtless many things of great interest would have been preserved for us which are now either entirely lost, or shrouded in impenetrable haze. The reasons which then prevented are not now clearly manifest. But the thing was not done, and the years rolled on and carried away the fathers and mothers, revered repositories of facts and traditions which would undoubtedly have both enlivened and enriched the pages of our present volume. The interest in having a history was, however, revived in the March meeting of 1889. The town then voted to celebrate its One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary, and on the same day, also, voted to appropriate two hundred dollars towards preparing and publishing its history. Messrs. D. C. Grant, J. H. Goodrich, J. A. Woodward, L. Cram, and E. C. Curtis were chosen as the History Committee. The next year three hundred dollars were added to the former appropriation; and a year later, on motion of Hon. B. G. Herrick, the town instructed its committee "to proceed with the work as fast as consistent with getting up a good history." Thus an earnest interest in obtaining a history became manifest. About that time, Rev. Frank G. Clark published his "Historical Address," prepared for the 150th anniversary. It was entitled "Salem-Canada-Lyndeborough," and almost deserved to be called a "history in miniature." This he kindly and generously permitted to be freely used as an aid in compiling the more extended work; and for the very valuable aid thus extended the compilers unite in expressing to him most hearty and unfeigned thanks. Readers will learn from the frequent citation from this address as authority how much they are indebted to Rev. F. G. Clark.

Our American government began with a revolutionary idea. Alexis de Tocqueville called the "evolutionary process of revolution" wherein society evolves and institutes sweeping changes in government. The government of the United States was the most unique creation of human history since it was an actual collaboration between Nature and the Individual, for Nature and the Individual, with the express purpose of facilitating and improving that relationship. It took all of humanity's history, its successes and failures along with Nature's tools of inspiration and evolution for the conception to manifest itself, until a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals, for the Individual," had come into being. The individual citizens of the United Colonies were "living in a state of grace with nature" and the society they made up created a clear mirror image of themselves, including internal equilibriums intended to preserve their self actualization process. A few years later, another revolution took place, one de Tocqueville would call the "political kind." This revolution occurred in France, it would be the precursor for many other modern revolutions wherein one Centralized Collective Authority replaces another and where government attempts to impose its will on society. Today, in America this spiritual battle continues. On one side is the Tea Party Patriots carrying on the spiritual tradition of our Founders and Framers, on the other side those who look toward the archaic Eurocentric and Asiatic concepts of an all powerful Centralized Collective Authority.

Time is running out! We only have a short time until Jesus returns. In order to accomplish the great commission, the church must be awakened out of their sleep and slumber. We believe that as you read this book it will arouse the spirit that is within you and move you to action. This is a call to wake a sleeping church!Is God looking through the windows of your eyes seeking to save the lost, only for you to walk away, leaving Him desiring what He wants the most? Have you reduced God to a ?WINDOW-SHOPPER??

`A penetrating investigation of medieval martial display... The reader is struck by its originality, and by its sophisticated and critical interpretative engagement with historical and literary sources. Particularly notable is the author's subtle exploration of the function of armour: not only its practical role, but as a form of display... A refreshingly different approach to the world of the medieval combatant and his place within that "host of many colours" that was a medieval army, it adds a new dimension to our understanding of medieval warfare.' ANDREW AYTON, University of Hull The medieval battlefield was a place of spectacle and splendour. The fully-armed knight, bedecked in his vivid heraldic colours, riding out beneath his brightly-painted banner, is a stock image of war and the warrior in the middle ages. Yet too often the significance of such display has been ignored or dismissed as the empty preening of a militaristic social elite. Drawing on a broad range of source material and using innovative historical approaches, this book completely re-evaluates the way that such men and their weapons were viewed, showing that martial display was a vital part of the way in which war was waged in the middle ages. It maintains that heraldry and livery served not only to advertise a warrior's family and social ties, but also announced his presence on the battlefield and right to wage war. It also considers the physiological and psychological effect of wearing armour, both on the wearer and those facing him in combat, arguing that the need for display in battle was deeper than any medieval cultural construct and was based in the fundamental biological drives of threat and warning.

He was formerly a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, and an Associate Lecturer at Cardiff University.
