🇺🇸 NEVER FORGET THE WARRIORS

Across from the One World Center plaza is St. Paul’s church, one of the oldest buildings in the city that’s survived at least three fires and 9/11. There are several instant visual dichotomies: old/new, natural/man-made, presence/absence. The World Trade Center memorial beautifully balances those dichotomies—cascading faucets fall into a pit that can never be filled.

where is the lie though? 🤔🤫💀 #knowyourhistory #americanhistory #facts #truth

John Dahlgren’s Boat Howitzer John A. Dahlgren joined the United States Navy as a midshipman in 1826. In 1847 he had made it to the rank of Commander and was given command of the Washington Navy Yard, during which he established the Bureau of Ordinance. Dahlgren specialized in Naval Artillery, something we will come back to in a minute. (It should be noted that the guns used in the turret of the U.S.S. Monitor were of Dahlgren’s design although that is something for another post) In 1863 the Civil War was being fought across the county and Dahlgren was made a Rear Admiral and took command of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron. During his command he aided William T. Sherman in capturing Savannah, Georgia. (This info about his life is from his Wikipedia page. The rest of the post after this is from my personal experience and knowledge.) As mentioned earlier, he took a special interest in Naval Artillery. During his time at the Washington Naval Yard he designed and oversaw the manufacturing of a smoothbore, twelve pound boat howitzer. This was a particularly unique piece of naval ordinance. It was designed to be pulled by a twelve man team of sailors and marines and fired by six of them while the others stood guard. It was designed specifically with amphibious operations in mind. The howitzer would be fitted into a slide carriage in the large rowboat used as a landing craft and was fired as the boat approached shore. When they hit the ground, the gun could easily be lifted out of the slide carriage by several men and put into a carriage with wheels on it. two ramps were lowered from the boat (one for each wheel) and the gun was rolled ashore and fired. According to its inventor, these howitzers were to be to artillery as light infantry was to the line infantry, that is, they were to be used for quick, hit and run or flanking maneuvers. They were designed to move about quickly as a team of twelve men could set off at a full run while pulling one of these with its tow line. CONTINUED BELOW⬇️

A larger than life story about an actual bigger than life character from the 19th century. Robert Wuench finishes his amazing trilogy with a flourish. The hero from TN heads to TX where he helps liberate TX from Mexico. Then he becomes a TX Ranger. After marrying a TX gal, he heads further west to San Francisco and becomes the city’s first sheriff. But there’s more to the plot as it weaves in the founding of the transcontinental railroad.

The Pilgrims, after they landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts, lived on the Mayflower during the winter of 1620-21 while the families worked to build their new homes. There were nineteen families in all, to which were added the unattached men. Here the replica of the Mayflower lies at anchor, a fitting background to the reconstructed Pilgrim Stockade. #vintagepostcard #ephemera #plymouthmass #pilgrims #mayflower #roadtrip #hyperreality #americanhistory #wishyouwerehere #ephemeralstates

Al Capone enjoying a Cubs game with Al jr or Sonny as he was called. The game was a Cubs/White Sox charity exhibition held on sept 9, 1931. future Hall of fame Cubs catcher Gabby Hartnett is seen talking to them here at game. This photo was taken less than a month before Capone was taken to trial and eventually convinced of tax evasion and sentenced to 11 years in Alcatraz. Due to his failing health related to untreated syphilis and good behavior he was released early on November 16, 1939. He died on January 25, 1947 at the relatively young age of 48.

Когда я смотрел одно из шоу Майка Тайсона, я видел как и сейчас по прошествию стольких лет, он приображется когда говорит о Касе... Он говорит с ним как с живым человеком, который и сейчас приглядывает за ним. Он становится им, и мы видем на сцене не Майка в дорогом костюме а пожилого человека в теплом халате и тапочках. Он просто проживает эту жизнь ещё раз. Браво... Я слушал этот диалоги сотни раз и каждый раз я нахожу в них новые нотки мастерства этого человека как учителя, друга, наставника, и огромного человека необычайно щедрости и добраты. Умудренного большим жизненным опытом... -Эй Майк, ты должен прочитать все книги в моей библиотека!! -Эй Майк отверни голову, а потом опять бей... -Эй Майк, ты будешь самым молодым чемпионом среди супертяжеловесов, люди будут носить сумку твоей мамы, но это произойдёт... , если будешь. Слушать меня.

Happy #BenFranklinDay & #ThrowbackThursday! Franklin has always been my favorite founding father. He was the renaissance man of his time and his contributions to mankind are still shaping our world today. From the postal service to the discovery of electricity there is a reason I have a bust of him on my bookshelf as my cheerleader. #tbt

Al Capone, der heute vor 120 Jahren geboren wurde, war ein Mafia-Boss in den USA. Seine Verbrechen, zu denen u.a. Alkoholhandel, Glücksspiel, Prostitution und Mord gehörten, konnten ihm nie nachweisen werden. Allerdings landete er wegen Steuerhinterziehung im Gefängnis, da er nicht belegen konnte, woher sein Vermögen stammte. #alcapone #chicago #newyork #mafia #usa #money #cash #geldwäsche #moneylaundering #onthisday #heutevor #derpate #tax #studygram #americanhistory #history #geschichte #17january

Henry Davis Fulton was born in Fort Wayne, IN on April 17, 1846 to Abraham and Elizabeth Fulton. He enlisted with the 30th Indiana Infantry, Co E in 1862. This medical photo was taken of him in 1868. ______________________________ Information on the photo reads as follows: “Henry D. Fulton, private Co. E, 30th Indiana Volunteers, was wounded at the battle of Chickamauga, September 19, 1863, by a canister shot. The missile entered at the surgical neck of the left humerus, passed upward and backward, comminuted the head of the humerus, and made its exit beneath the base of the acromion. The patient was sent to the Cumberland hospital at Nashville, Tennessee. Extensive exfoliation followed, and abscesses burrowed beneath the clavicle and scapula. On November 1, 1863, Assistant Surgeon C.F. Haynes, U.S.V., excised the head oaf the left humerus, the outer portion of the acromion process, and a portion of the articular surface of the scapula, through a linear incision on the anterior aspect of the arm. The case progressed favorably, suppuration beneath the clavicle and scapula ceased, the external wound cicatrized, and his general health rapidly amended. Unfortunately, firm achylosis took place between the scapula and upper extremity of the humerus, and the muscles of the shoulder wasted from disuse. The patient was transferred to hospital at Madison, Indiana, on March 11, 1864, and was discharged from service April 22, 1864. In September, 1868, this pensioner went to New York, and was provided with an apparatus by Dr. E.D. Hudson, who reported that the shortening of the arm was about half an inch, the motions of the forearm and hand were normal, that the muscles of the shoulder were much atrophied, and that the only motion of the shoulder was the limited movements permitted by the scapula following the humerus. Dr. Hudson was of the opinion that the apparatus which he applied mechanically aided muscular action to a satisfactory degree. ______________________________ He married Mary Jane Robinson after the war and had a family. He worked as a coal dealer. He died in Chicago on Oct 25, 1928.

On Jeffersons gravestone it reads, before anything else, Author of the Declaration of Independence. Walking his estate, I thought of the revolutionaries who were inspired by his words. Ho Chi Minh, for instance, in his 1945 Declaration of Vietnamese Independence, quoted Jefferson: All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. This immortal statement was made in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in 1776. In a broader sense, this means: All the peoples on the earth are equal from birth, all the peoples have a right to live, to be happy and free. The Declaration of the French Revolution made in 1791 on the Rights of Man and the Citizen also states: All men are born free and with equal rights, and must always remain free and have equal rights. Those are undeniable truths. . Revolutionary words from a controversial but Great Man. . . . #revolution #revolutionary #freedom #jefferson #thomasjefferson #history #historyball #monticello #charlottesville #travel #americanhistory #virginiaisforlovers #foundingfather #liberty #communism #weregoingtostealthedeclarationofindependence

Tonight! 7:00 at the Coventry Town Hall (1670 Flat River Road) is what may be the only screening of Rhode Island’s Industrial Revolution this year! Or at least for the first half of it. My schedule is filling up with some major film projects and so I’ve got no more planned or anticipated screenings of this right now. Come see it tonight! Buy a copy! Ask me questions about the film and find out all about how and why I do what I do! It’s free!

Когда в чужом глазу соринку видишь, а в своем бревна никак ты не увидишь ⠀⠀ Часть 1. ⠀⠀ Меня бросил мужик. Мужик был богатый. Теперь я в депрессии, и все у меня плохо. Именно такие слухи распускали «друзья», когда летом я неожиданно пропала, не только из соцсетей, но и с их личных радаров. Я не отвечала на звонки, смс, мейлы - в итоге люди стали сочинять байки о том, что же приключилось со мной. И самой популярной была, как раз про разбитое сердце и то, как я несчастна, печалюсь не об утерянной любви, а о том, что исчез «папик».😏 ⠀⠀ Начнём с того, что «папика» у меня никогда не было. Я слишком независимая, гордая и резкая для того, чтобы быть содержанкой. Очень много проблем в моей жизни было связанно именно с тем, что я не умела уступать, слушать, подчиняться.🌪 ⠀⠀ Я работаю с 16 лет, и никогда не останавливалась в своём развитии. У меня перед глазами не было примера семьи, где женщина может положиться на мужчину. Поэтому с детства я усвоила одно , и может неправильно, но мой личный постулат: «Личная жизнь и личный успех - не совместимы. Полагаться на кого-либо, кроме себя - глупо».🚫 ⠀⠀ Бывали ситуации, когда нéчего было есть. Но я не просила о помощи родителей - мне было стыдно признать, что я терплю поражение. И я никогда не обращалась к мужчинам. Брала деньги в долг, и отдавала точно в срок. Просто принимать «дары» - не про меня. Личная свобода - куда важнее, чем любые материальные блага. Возможно, я глупая женщина, но это непоколебимые принципы.🤷🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀ Я вкладывала все свои деньги в бизнес. И верила в то, что однажды , всё это, вернётся ко мне. Потому что я искренне люблю свою туристическую компанию, и даже когда мне все кричали, что я провалюсь, я не верила им. Собирая последнии силы в кулак, я поднималась и шла дальше.🙏🏼 ⠀⠀ 📌 Хотите продолжение ? Ставьте ♥️ и расскажите мне своё мнение! Необходимо ли, чтобы в твой успех верили? Как относитесь к тем, кто распускает плохие слухи, подкидывает сложности? ⠀⠀ #Маринка_личное

Happy birthday Benjamin Franklin! 🎂🎉 313 years young today 😉 See my stories today as I try to recreate a Franklin experiment in honor of his birthday ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A founding father of the United States and a diverse inventor, heres a breakdown (swipe ➡️➡️➡️ for pics!) of Franklins best inventions: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚡ Lightning Rods ⚡ Would not these pointed rods probably draw the electrical fire silently out of a cloud ... and thereby secure us from that most sudden and terrible mischief! - Benjamin Franklin (aka Birthday Boy 🎉) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👓 Bifocals aka Double Spectacles 👓 Franklin literally cut the lenses from two different pairs of glasses in half, and then fused them together. The top half for distance, the bottom for reading (of which Im sure he did a lot!) 📚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏊 Swim Fins 🏊 Okay, so he didnt invent what we know as modern swimming fins 🤷, but at only 11 years old he hypothesised that flat pieces of wood attached to the hands or feet would help propel you through the water. Pretty impressive for a pre-teen 👏. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Annnnd an honorable mention 🏆: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎰 (I know this isnt an odometer but use your imagination 😂) While on a mission to improve the US postal system, our birthday boy attached a device to the wheel of a horse carriage 🐎 which tracked the distance he travelled for the project. He was not the only inventor of the odometer, but he was incredibly successful in his practical application of the concept.

Elizabeth M. Watkins, 1930s. To the KU community of the 1920s and 30s, Lawrence resident Elizabeth Watkins was known variously as “Lady Bountiful” and the “Fairy Godmother.” She gave generously to the University while living and in her will, Watkins not only gave her home to the University to be used as the chancellor’s residence; she also transferred ownership of her 26,000 acres of southwestern Kansas farmland to KU. Youll notice quite a few buildings around campus with the Watkins name. If you have time, I highly recommend that you visit the @watkinsmuseum in Lawrence. I recently went on a tour of the museum and it is a gem. They have artifacts including items rescued from burning homes during Quantrills Raid, an electric car from the early 1900s, and even some very cool artifacts from KU. Please go visit! You will learn a lot about how Lawrence has developed since its founding, its role in Kansas, and the part that J.B. Watkins and Elizabeth played in it. The building itself is half the fun. They sure dont make them like this anymore. Go! #elizabethwatkins #watkinsmuseum #aviewfromku #ku #kuhistory #rockchalk #payheed #jayhawks #history #kansas #kansashistory #americanhistory #1930s #vintage #retro #cool #photography #blackandwhite

This Day in Black History: Jan. 17 1874: Incumbent E. J. Davis relinquishes his position as governor of Texas after a five day stand off to Democrat Richard Coke. With this action, Reconstruction in Texas ended. Further, Governor Coke began a Democratic reign in Texas that would last without interruption for more than 100 years. 1919: The Black Bottom dance is celebrated on this date. This is one of many dances brought from African culture through Blacks during and after slavery. Originally starting in New Orleans the Black Bottom later worked its way to New York. Some say blues singer Alberta Hunter introduced the dance. 1923: Spingarn Medal awarded to George Washington Carver, head of the department of research, Tuskegee Institute, for his pioneering work in agricultural chemistry. 1970: John Burgess is installed as bishop of the Protestant Episcopal diocese of Massachusetts. 1978: Ronald Erwin McNair, selected as one of thirty-five applicants from a pool of ten thousand for the NASA astronaut program, is named for a space mission. #americanhistory #truth #melanin #blackhistorymonth365daysoftheyear #DifferentShadesOfBrown #usa #BlackHistoryIsAmericanHistory #ThereIsATimeline

🔸The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere depicts the American patriot Paul Revere during his midnight ride on April 18, 1775. 🔸The perspective is from a high altitude as Revere rides through a brightly lit Lexington, Massachusetts. 🔸It was inspired by the poem Paul Reveres Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. 🔸Wood used a childs hobby horse as model for Reveres horse.🔸 Grant Wood chooses a bird’s-eye view, to depict Revere on horseback, racing through a colonial town square in Massachusetts. 🔸Despite the work’s historical subject matter, Wood did not attempt to depict the scene with factual accuracy. 🔸The houses are overly bright, as if lit by electric light, and the dramatic moonlight casts unrealistic shadows. 🔸The stylized houses, geometric greenery, and high perspective give the painting an otherworldly or dreamlike dimension.🔸🔸🔸 “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” 1931, by American artist Grant Wood (1891-1942) 🔸 @metmuseum 🔸🔸🔸 #grantwood #americanartists #thebritisharecoming #metropolitanmuseumofart #myphoto #myphotography #artoflooking #americanhistory #regionalism #artoftheday #artoflooking #arthistory #artblogging #paulrevere #artobserved #loveart 🔸🔸🔸
