  • New York Rangers by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Broadway Blueshirts by Uniform Number

    What do Alexi Kovalev, Ted Irvine, and Mike Rogers all have in common? They all wore number 27 for the New York Rangers. Current team captain Ryan McDonagh joined their ranks when he became a Ranger in 2010. Since the Rangers first adopted uniform numbers in 1926, the team has handed out only 83 numbers to more than 1,000 players. That’s a lot of overlap. It also makes for a lot of good stories. New York Rangers by the Numbers tells those stories for every Ranger since ’26, from Clarence Abel to Mats Zuccarello. This book lists the players alphabetically and by number; these biographies help trace the history of one of hockey’s oldest and most beloved teams in a new way. For Rangers fans, anyone who ever wore the uniform is like family. New York Rangers by the Numbers reintroduces readers to some of their long-lost ancestors, even those they think they already know.

  • Pirates By the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Bucs By Uniform Number

    When the National League decided on June 22, 1932, to place numbers on the backs of uniforms to make it easier for fans to follow their favorite players, no one knew at the time just what a landmark decision it would turn out to be. In fact, when the Pittsburgh Pirates donned numbered jerseys eight days later against the St. Louis Cardinals at Forbes Field, the uniform numbers were so unimportant on the team’s list of priorities that it was second billing to the main event of that day: the first Ladies Day in Pirates history.The secondary event would turn out to be an iconic moment in baseball history, as players are now closely associated with their uniform numbers. For example, two Hall of Famers for the Pirates wore the number 21: Arky Vaughan and Roberto Clemente. Both ironically died young while trying to help others, and 21 has become the most sacred number in Steel City sports lore.Pirates by the Numbers tells the tales of these players and more in a format that will include the greatest players to wear a specific number, the worst, and the most unique. The book highlights the first players to wear particular numbers and how they performed in their inaugural games, the first to hit home runs, and the first pitchers to win games. You’ll also find a list by year of every...

  • Burlington Firefighting

    Burlington, settled in 1642 and incorporated in 1799, began as a quiet farming community. For the first 100 years after the town s founding, no fire department existed, and by 1900, many important buildings had tragically been lost to fires. The loss of these historic landmarks prompted the beginning of a group of volunteer firefighters that protected the town until the first full-time fire department s establishment in 1951. Over the years, the department expanded to meet the demands of the town s rapid growth. Today the fire department consists of professionals constantly striving to improve the department and committed to serving the people of Burlington."

  • Snow on the Headlight: A Story of the Great Burlington Strike - eBook

    Good managers are made from messenger boys, brakemen, wipers and telegraphers; just as brave admirals are produced in due time by planting a cadet in a naval school. From two branches of the service come the best equipped men in the railroad world—from the motive-power department and from the train service. This one came from the mechanical department, and he spent his official life trying to conceal the fact—striving to be just to all his employees and to show no partiality towards the department from whence he sprang—but always failing. "These men will not strike," he contended: "The brains of the train are in the engine." "O, I don't think," Mr. Josler, the general superintendent, would say; and if you followed his accent it would take you right back to the heart of Germany: "Giff me a goot conductor, an' I git over the roat." No need to ask where he came from. As the grievance grew in the hands of the "grief" committee, and the belief became fixed in the minds of the officials that the employees were looking for trouble, the situation waxed critical. "Might as well make a clean job of it," the men would say; and then every man who had a grievance, a wound where there had been a grievance or a fear that he might have something to complain of in the future, contributed to the real original grievance until the trouble grew so that it appalled the officials and caused them to stiffen their necks. In this way the men and the management were being wedged farther and farther apart. Finally, the general manager, foreseeing what war would cost the company and the employees, made an effort to reach a settlement, but the very effort was taken as evidence of weakness, and instead of yielding something the men took courage, and lengthened the list of grievances. His predecessor had said to the president of the company when the last settlement was effected: "This is our last compromise. The next time we shall have to fight—my back is to the wall." But, when the time came for the struggle, he had not the heart to make the fight, and so resigned and went west, where he died shortly afterwards, and dying, escaped the sorrow that must have been his had he lived to see how his old, much-loved employees were made to suffer. Now the grievance committee came with an ultimatum to the management. "Yes, or No?" demanded the chairman with a Napoleonic pose. But the general superintendent was loth to answer.
