... ecame rather pleasant for Billy and Eddie. Despite their initial homesickness, they found the environment to their liking. But good things never seemed to last for the Sundays. No sooner had the boys settled in and begun to feel part of the landscape than the pain of separation entered their lives again. They were moved to Davenport, another Soldier's Orphan Home, because of State money concerns. The four years in orphans' homes were important ones for Billy Sunday. They turned out to be some of the best years of his formal schooling. He left Davenport with an ability to read, write, and do elementary math.

Gun Laws States from Michigan to Nebraska to California, as well as the federal government, are considering new rules on letting law-abiding citizens carry guns.

- Monet - 1,430 words
Monet Monet's use of color along with use of intricate brush strokes and composition is outstanding.

There were many reasons for the Americans to go to war with the British. From the end of the American Revolution in 1783, the United States had been irritated by the failure of the British to withdraw from American territory along the Great Lakes, their backing of the Indians on America's frontiers, and their unwillingness to sign ...
