Publisher's Summary

What happened in history in August?

Love learning about the people and events who "made" history? Then get ready to listen to Today in History - The August Edition and enjoy an evening of little-known tales from around the world.

Discover the strange life of Mary Shelley (8/30), the optical illusion of Goldy Goldsmith's curveball (8/16), the reason Robert E. Lee tendered his resignation to Jefferson Davis (8/8), and much, much more! Today in History - The August Edition contains 31 fascinating stories about the people, places, and events that shaped our world . . . making it short enough to be listened to in a relaxing evening at home or on the road.

Throughout history, tens of thousands of people have made an impact not only on their own times but for decades or centuries to come. Some, like John Adams and the Wright Brothers, are known by us all, while Hannibal Hamlin may still be a virtual unknown.

In August, you will meet some familiar faces along with the unknowns whose beliefs and actions may just surprise you!

Listen n' Relax: While many people love learning about the past, few have the time to dig deep enough to find the fascinating tales and interesting facts about the movers and shakers of the past. With Today in History - The August Edition you won't have to pour over historical books and research papers because the author has done it for you.

Ready to Time Travel? If you're ready for a fun evening of listening, settle in for a few hours of traveling back in time with some of the most fascinating characters who walked through the pages of history!
