Before he came into his presidency Truman had no knowledge of the Manhattan project. As he learned about this, Truman’s main concern was ending the war as fast as he possibly could to save the lives of countless American Troops.

Williams presents Stanley’s Neanderthal-like attributes displayed… Read More

My parents have mentioned that parenting has changed within the past twenty years.
