Acclaim Press has published history books for numerous counties throughout Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas. The books are usually published in cooperation with the local county historical or genealogical society. They contain the county, community, business, church, school, club/organization, and especially family histories, each section accompanied by many historical pictures to document the foundation, growth and change of the community. These history books record the lineage of families along with treasured family photos. They are large, luxurious, coffee-table books, and many have already become collector’s items upon publication.
Military history and biography titles covering the Civil War, WWII, and the Vietnam War include titles such as Lloyd Tilghman, As You Were, and Mobile Riverine Operations. With the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial beginning in 2008, Acclaim Press is releasing Through the Eyes of Lincoln and Lincoln and the Speeds. Upcoming specialty histories include that of the Baltimore County Maryland Police, Sons of the American Revolution, and Louisville Police Department.
Some biographies are A Beautiful Journey by Lucille Carloftis, The Butcher Burbridge by Bryan S. Bush, Born Amish by Ruth Irene Garrett, Gene Bess, by N.H. Roberts and C.A. Richardson. Nature is at its best in glorious color in Red River Gorge and Kentucky Unbridled Spirit and Beauty. The best-selling Eating Your Way Across Kentucky- 101 Must Places to Eat with its sequel Eating Your Way Across Kentucky-THE RECIPES have led hungry travelers to culinary delight.
A new history about the lost silver mines of Kentucky and their uncanny similarities to the famous pirate Long John Silver from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island is creating a remarkable stir in historians and treasure hunters across the country.
