The Shelburne Line was a World War II escape network operating in occupied France which returned 136 allied servicemen to England.

Once a month—during dark of the moon—the men were transported to the Brittany coast to meet a British Motor Gun Boat which would return them to England. Join Rick Feingold, as he recounts the story of how his father Lt. Louis Feingold, a B-17 U.S. Army Air Forces navigator, escaped Nazi capture. Lt.

New York of the 1850s was a time when the Irish fleeing the famine in their home country arrived in great numbers only to settle in ethnic ghettos. With no skills or education, little English, and of Catholic faith in a predominantly Protestant culture they faced discrimination for the available factory jobs. Many children became homeless, living on the streets and working as bootblacks or shoeshine boys. Horatio Alger wrote novels about these boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, and honesty. We will read excerpts from Alger’s most famous novel “Ragged Dick” and learn about the “Gilded Age,” the Newsboys Lodging House, and New York City during this period.

Asked how he became so rich, Rockefeller replied, “God gave me my money.” Rockefeller was in the oil refining business early after the Pennsylvania oil rush began in 1859. He built state-of-the-art refineries and bought out his rivals. Rockefeller negotiated secret rebates with the railroads and formed what would become the Standard Oil Trust. Eventually the Supreme Court declared Standard Oil a monopoly and ordered it be broken up. But the individual oil companies were worth more separately and Rockefeller would go on to enter a second life of philanthropy which lives on to today.
