Once townspeople began calling her masterpiece the Bad Luck Wedding Dress, Jenny Fortune knew it spelled trouble for her Fort Worth dressmaking shop.

Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement.

March of Dimes Book Description :

For more than half a century, a deadly viral disease known as poliomyelitis, or infantile paralysis, caused permanent crippling injury to thousands of Americans. Many died from polio; others were disabled for life. Summertime epidemics brought fear to anxious parents who tried to protect their children during "polio season." Although a cure was never found, protection came in the form of a vaccine developed by Dr. Jonas Salk, a grantee of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The foundation, better known as the March of Dimes, succeeded in its efforts to eradicate polio from the United States and expanded its mission to the prevention of birth defects and infant mortality. March of Dimes documents one of the most successful voluntary healt...
