Book Description :

The true story of one man's reluctant but relentless war against the invaders of his country.A quiet, wealthy plantation owner, Jack Hinson watched the start of the Civil War with disinterest. Opposed to secession and a friend to Union and Confederate commanders alike, he did not want a war. After Union soldiers seized and murdered his sons, placing their decapitated heads on the gateposts of his estate, Hinson could remain indifferent no longer. He commissioned a special rifle for long-range accuracy, he took to the woods, and he set out for revenge. This remarkable biography presents the story of Jack Hinson, a lone Confederate sniper who, at the age of 57, waged a personal war on Grant's army and navy. The result of 15 years of scholarship, this meticulously researched and beautifully written work is the only account of Hinson's life ever recorded and involves an unbelievable cast of characters, including the Earp brothers, Jesse James, and Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Book Description :

Jack Hinson never planned to become a deadly sniper. A prosperous influential Kentucky plantation owner in the 1850s, Hinson was devoted to raising his growing family and working his land. Yet by 1865, Hinson had likely killed more than one hundred men and had single-handedly taken down an armed Union transport in his one-man war against Grant's army and navy. By the end of the Civil War, the Union had committed infantry and cavalry from nine regiments and a specially equipped amphibious task force of marines to capture Hinson, who was by that time nearly sixty years old. They never caught him. Jack Hinson's story has evaded astute historians, and until now, he has remained invisible in the history of sniper warfare. John S. "Old Jack" Hinson watched the start of the Civil War with impartial disinterest. A friend of Ulysses S. Grant and Confederate officers alike, Hinson was opposed to secession, focused instead on his personal affairs. After a unit of Union occupation troops moved in on his land and summarily captured, executed, and placed decapitated heads of his sons on his gateposts, however, Hinson abandoned his quiet life for one of revenge. Equipped with a rifle he had specially made for long-range accuracy, Hinson became deadly to the occupying army--Publisher's description.

McKenney, USMC (Ret), award-winning author of "Jack Hinson's One-Man War" FULFILLING HIS BEST FRIEND'S DYING REQUEST TURNS MIKE KIDD'S PLEASANT LIFE INTO A NIGHTMARE. Mike Kidd is not a detective; in fact, he has no vocation. He takes a job from time to time to augment the modest but steady income the single oil well on his inherited farm provides, but has no career. He was just as unfocused in college, taking classes that intrigued him so that he is well educated but has no degree. His pleasant but unaspiring life is upset when his best friend dies and bequeaths a going business to him. Along with the business, he inherits unexpected danger and a mystery concerning just what the business produces. His friend also left him a briefcase with instructions to burn it without opening it. Mike soon finds himself in danger because a shadowy group is convinced Mike knows the briefcase's secret and is willing to kill to get it. Enlisting a most unlikely group of allies, Mike must piece together clues in order to reconstruct the information the briefcase held. The more they learn, the greater the threat becomes.

The shadow of death hovers over many of the rites and rituals of Freemasonry. In Letters on the Masonic Institution by John Quincy Adams, we learn of an ancient Masonic ritual known as The Fifth Libation, which involves drinking wine from a human skull. Every Mason takes death oaths and several Masonic executions have taken place throughout history. Author Tom McKenney exposes the deadly secrets of this fraternity, which has more than three million members around the world. In a careful and objective manner, he reveals the connection between Freemasonry and the New Age Movement, and he delves into the occult roots of this secret society.
