The History of Warren

American FlagThis morning I was doing some research about the City of Warren when I stumbled upon a website that not only had in depth information, but it offered a free book and DVD.  I got dressed and drove to the Village Book Exchange, where a copy of the book was available.

“I can pay something for it,” I told the woman at the counter.

“Nope,” she said. “The author – a professor – wants to give it to people for free.”

“Thank you,” I said. “This is a beautiful gift.”

Professor Wesley Arnold, a historian, compiled over one hundred pages of colorful pictures and detailed information from the time Macomb was nothing but marshland and forests. I have had the chance to go through parts of it, and I can say that so far it is filled with “Love, Peace and Freedom” – the title of his DVD.
