"LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD" (2007) Review

When I had first heard about a third sequel to the 1988 action blockbuster, "DIE HARD" eight years ago, I thought Bruce Willis must have been very desperate to revive his career. Aside from the 2005 hit, "SIN CITY", he had not appeared in very successful movie in nearly a decade. Read more... )

He was born on Sinking Spring Farm, in southeast Hardin County, Kentucky (now part of LaRue County) on February 12, 1809; making him the first president born outside the original thirteen colonies. I could write an essay about his life and achievements. Instead, I have made a small list of historical books and novels centered around his four years as President: Read more... )
