Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Ever wonder about the essential history of St. Louis? A Timeline of St. Louis History tells how the city lives and breathes, beyond French fur traders founding a city on the banks of the Mississippi. It's fur trader Jacques Clamorgan, who left his entire estate to the four biracial children he fathered with slaves. St. Louis is James Buchannan Eads building the ironclad boats that helped the Union Army conquer Vicksburg, as well as Josephine Baker who learned the horrors of racism. We remember William Greenleaf Eliot who believed a woman, like a man, deserved to be educated to the best of her ability and founded Washington University accordingly, not to mention Larry Roos who took a stand against political corruption in the County. St. Louis is the Voluntary Interdistrict Transfer Program, the "longest running and most successful school integration in the nation." On the diamond, we're the Gashouse Gang and Branch Rickey and Stan Musial and in music--ragtime, blues, and rap. We've hosted crooks, hoodlums and kidnappers, corrupt politicians, and saints. This city will disgust you and make you proud, make you laugh and sing and cry. It is a great place to live, and a place that has a long way to go. It's home.
