    W+ Exclusive: The Manson Murders | Bad Times in the Summer of Love

    W+ Exclusive: The Manson Murders | Bad Times in the Summer of Love

    On March 21st, 1967, prisoner number 3845 was released back into the general population. He was a 32-year-old career criminal named Charles Manson. Just months later, Manson found himself in San Francisco at the height of the hippie era, the so-called “Summer of Love.” There, he began recruiting a cadre of young, impressionable, mostly female followers, who came to believe their leader was the second coming of Jesus. They would do anything Manson told them to. At first, that just meant supporting his dreams of becoming a famous musician. But soon, Manson’s ambitions would take a darker turn.

    W+ Exclusive: The Manson Murders | Helter Skelter

    In the summer of 1969, Charles Manson’s predictions of a coming race war called Helter Skelter still had not come to pass. Manson’s followers, the Family, were getting impatient – and Manson was growing desperate to keep them under his control. Finally, he decided to jump-start Helter Skelter himself, orchestrating a series of brutal murders that would baffle authories and shock the nation.

    Encore: The Age of Jackson | Washington Burns

    Encore: The Age of Jackson | Washington Burns

    In 1814, British troops burned down the White House. That fire would be extinguished, and the Executive Mansion would be rebuilt. But another fire smoldered on – a fire that would eventually consume the United States. This is Antebellum America: the decades leading up to the Civil War.

    This was America’s adolescence. The young nation was growing at tremendous speed, forcing its leaders to address fundamental questions about their country’s identity and values. Could the individual states put aside their differences to remain united? And could this new country live up to its lofty ideals, especially when it came to issues like slavery or the treatment of Native Americans?

    One leader shaped this era more than any other: America’s reluctant seventh president, Andrew Jackson.

    Encore: The Age of Jackson | Good Feelings

    Encore: The Age of Jackson | Good Feelings

    In the summer of 1817, President James Monroe toured the country in an effort to unify the ever-growing United States. His optimistic presidency ushered in what became known as “The Era of Good Feelings.” But in reality, it was barely an era at all. The facade of political unity had already begun to crack by 1819, when Monroe faced his first serious political crisis: the Missouri Controversy, which brought the issue of slavery into the national spotlight.

    On Andrew Jackson’s inauguration day, citizens mobbed the White House, breaking furniture and fine china. It was a sign of troubles to come. Elected as a populist president, Jackson was dogged by chaos and controversy from his first days in office. But a sex scandal known as “The Petticoat Affair” was minor compared to the challenges that lay ahead for America’s seventh president.
