Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was a famous Confederate general during the US Civil War. Arguably, his death in 1863 was a crucial blow to the Confederacy; it happened prior to the battle of Gettysburg, and the lack of his knowledge in part led to the Confederacy‘s defeat.

Outside of war, Jackson was a fanatic. He was a teacher, a preacher, but also deeply loyal and a task master. This is one of many bios about him. #papadontpreach #Movember

Jim Jones was the first cult leader I learned about in school, and was my first idea for this prompt although I couldn't remember his name at the beginning. (I had to Google 'cult leader who killed members using poisoned juice')

A look at murders and methods of murders from the Tudor time.

This was an interesting look at some of the murders committed during the tudor times. It also includes a look at the various methods used to execute people. Short entries for each case but with enough detail to understand it.

An intense look at the hostage crisis at the US embassy in Tehran. Very well written. Not all of the hostages receive the same amount of attention as not all of them wanted to relive the experience.

I def learned a hell of a lot about Paris and its history, so obviously that‘s a plus for a nonfiction book. A lot of it was fascinating & written in an accessible way, & I loved the art & maps from the time period (17th to 18th centuries). The author did have a tendency to repeat herself by rearranging words, & I wish there was a bit more depth on some topics, bit less on others. But it‘s fun & informative & a good one for any Francophile. 3/5 ⭐️

I got this ice cream “for the kids” but it is so good I may need to hide it in a bag labeled for frozen vegetables so they don‘t eat it all. Snickerdoodle sleigh ride for the win.
