The Fate of the Signers
What was the fate of the signers of the Declaration of Independence? The late Paul Harvey presents the story in this nine minute video of the men who signed our nation’s sacred document, pledging their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.
The Called Shot
In the 1932 World Series, did Babe Ruth really point toward the center field wall in Chicago’s Wrigley Field and then proceed to hit a home run to that exact spot? The famous “Called Shot.” After viewing my story, which contains extraordinary rare footage, you’ll be able to decide for yourself.
