I'm back but one more picture. Important history meets inspired design. Everyone raves about the building. There was some concern around the location of the museum (so close to the Washington monument) but it's now a beloved addition to the mall. #smithsonian #architecture #Americanhistory #unfinishedbusiness

On this day in 1777, the British attempt to drive Americans away from Fort Mifflin. General Howe had recently taken possession of nearby #Philadelphia. Possession of the American capital should have been a victory for Howe, but it wasn’t exactly working out that way. He had a big problem on his hands: How would he get supplies? Howe needed control of the river to make that happen. That meant driving Americans out of the forts that they held along the river—especially Forts Mifflin and Mercer! Those two forts faced each other, one on each side of the #Delaware. The British also had to get past several chevaux-de-frise (weapons with sharp spikes) that Americans had submerged in the water. Howe and his brother, Admiral Howe, decided to launch a two-pronged attack. First, a detachment of Germans attacked #FortMercer on October 22. They found the fort better fortified than expected. The Germans soon retreated, having lost one-third of their force. The next day, the planned attack on #FortMifflin began. Admiral Howe planned to send one warship to the west, where the fort was more vulnerable. Five other warships would act as a distraction to the east. It didn’t work. Three of the ships ran aground. In the meantime, Americans and British were pummeling each other with artillery. The British were unable to get their ships back afloat in the midst of the heavy fire. Two ships ended up catching fire and exploding. (See pic.) The battle lasted for two days, but in the end, Americans kept the fort. The victory helped buy time for Washington’s #army to move into winter quarters at #ValleyForge.

Franklin and Eleanor married each other on March 17th, 1905. At the time, Theodore Roosevelt was the president of the United States and was more than excited to attend his niece’s wedding. Due to his popularity and boisterous attitude, Theodore was the most interesting person at the wedding leaving the newlyweds to stand awkwardly as the popular president took center stage. #fdr #franklindelanoroosevelt #eleanorroosevelt #theodoreroosevelt #ushistory #history #americanhistory #sad

We visited an historical sugarcane plantation. To say the least, a heavy eeriness hangs over the place. The history is fascinating, devastating and hard to really grasp. A fact I’ll remember is that the last four slave descendant families remained on the property and lived in the slave cabins until 1977. When you learn about why these families “chose” to remain where their families were enslaved for generations even long after emancipation, you soon realize the word choice has many definitions. #neworleans #americanhistory#lauraplantation #louisiana

Written in 1942, Americans remained pacifists during World War II. They were embittered with sending the boys over to fight "the good fight." Not to mention that there were many Hitler admirers here at home. Many top businessmen, like Henry Ford of Ford Motorcompany immediately donated materials and millions of dollars to the NSADP (the Nazis) after the release of Mein Kampf. Anti-Semitism was a reality in the States and most WASP egoists loved the strong-man Fascist ruler. Sometime upon entering the war after Pearl Harbor, Russia's pact with Hitler was violated and Russia switched sides. The enemy of our enemy was our friend and we sat at the table with Joseph Stalin. After this alliance was made, American propaganda - both made by private interests and by the gov. - hit the paperback news stands to convince Americans that a Democratic society and Socialist Communists can work together for the common good. This book does just that while dancing within the confines of patriotism and caution. . #War #WWII #WorldWar #Vintage #VintageBooks #VintageBooksForSale #OldBooks #1942 #1940 #Hitler #Stalin #JosephStalin #Russia #RussianHistory #ForeignRelations #US #Allies #RareBooks #Miami #FirstEdition #Museums #Curiousities #History #AmericanHistory #History #Communism #NaziGermany #USSR #Propaganda

Barracoon by Zora Neale Hurston. The newly published work from the author of the American classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, brilliantly illuminates the horror and injustices of slavery as it tells the true story of one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic slave trade--abducted from Africa on the last "Black Cargo" ship to arrive in the United States. bit.ly/2EFtGQE #americanhistory #history #book #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #booklife #bookaddict #booklove #librarybooks #librarybook #lovebooks #reading #read #readmore #readabook

As the dinosaur and human dimensions begin to merge, President Koopa starts to show his reptilian features in the 1993 film Super Mario Bros. Like Koopa, US Senator Orrin Hatch recently made a tweet where he jokingly says that DNA tests have shown he is descended from dinosaurs. The tweet shows himself and a graphic that says he is 1/1032 T-Rex like King Koopa who in the movie says he is also descended from T-Rex. Similar to Koopa, who has been the lizard King for millions of years, Senator Hatch also holds a title of the longest-serving Republican Senator in the history of the United States. *CNN: “Graham says it would be 'terrible' if DNA showed he has Iranian heritage” October 17th 2018.

Fort Union was established in 1851 to protect the Santa Fe Trail, and during its forty-year history, three different forts were constructed in total. The third and final Fort Union was the largest in the American Southwest, and functioned as a military garrison, territorial arsenal, and military supply depot for the southwest.

@Regran_ed from @re.masculate - As you may know, October is Black History month and in recognition of it I want to share a little bit of the intersection between patriarchal masculinity and black masculinity. . But first a bit of a caveat. It is my understanding that black history month’s primary focus is on the positive contributions of black people, and while my next post aims to be more positively focused, this one’s purpose is around awareness and it’s heavy. . The reason why it was necessary for black men to carry signs declaring that they indeed are men is because throughout the history of America, black men have been excluded from being seen as men. . Black slaves were always just “boys.” . Rises in KKK memberships (and lynchings) were always connected to time periods when there was a perceived threat to their sense of “white patriarchal masculinity.” In other words, if KKK members couldn’t assert or achieve their manliness in the typical fashion (through business success etc) another way to do so was by asserting it over blacks (Kimmel, 2012). . One of the most recent and horrifying things I learned, is that black men were often first castrated before lynching. . Intersectionality requires that one acknowledges that different groups have different needs based on their access to power. In this context it is important to be aware that these men pictured above during the Civil Rights movement are asserting their masculinity, not in a patriarchal sense, but for equality. . . #iamaman #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackhistorymonth2018 #blackmasculinity #blacklivesmatter #blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #masculinity #learnfromhistory #patriarchy #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality #americanhistory #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #masculinity #menandboys #manhood @blklivesmatter

Delighted to see that the cover of his book features the circa 1700 brandywine bowl by Gerrit Onkelbag of New York that I sold in our 2017 Americana sale! That was one of my first high value lots that I did the full research and cataloging for.

Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark. It is downtown Boston’s oldest building and one of the few remaining 17th-century dwellings in a large urban area in the United States. .

THIS YEAR IN AMERICAN HISTORY: Ford Motor Company would not have become what it is today if Henry Ford hadn’t left his job as Chief Engineer at Edison Illuminating Company on August 15, 1899. Though his engineering job was great money for Ford’s family, his hours were never set and he was on call twenty-four hours a day. With the little down time he had, Ford would work toward his goal of creating a gasoline-powered engine; which he finally achieved at the end of 1893. Ford extended his dreams, all while still working his tireless job, and completed his first horseless carriage he called the “Quadricycle” by 1896. Ford had piqued the interest of William C. Maybury who decided to invest in Ford’s ingenious skills. With his support Ford continued his building ventures and by mid-summer 1899 he finished his third, most advanced, car; it contained several features the others did not like water tanks and brakes. Maybury and a few other investors contributed approximately one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to establish the Detroit Automobile Company in early August 1899. Ten days after its conception Edison left his position, despite being offered a hefty bribe to stay. Though both companies backed by Maybury failed, Ford poured his all into a last ditch effort – the Ford Motor Company – which he established in 1903. Since then the Ford Motor Company has become synonymous to American made products and remains a true car icon. . . . .

Keeper of the Plains statue in Wichita, Kansas, overlooking the convergence of the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers. I took this photo on the first day of my first trip to Kansas. Usually when I travel I head for the cities, as I’m sure you do too, but if you want to really experience and understand a country, take a few trips off the beaten path. Even within my own country, my weekend in Hutchinson, Kansas, really opened my eyes to another area and group of people in the United States. 🇺🇸🌽🌊🌻🐄 #kansas #wichita #unitedstates #keeperoftheplains #americanhistory #offthebeatenpath

"Rare Black WallStreet Footage - White people were envious of the Indigenous Americans & Africans in Tulsa, and vowed to put the progressive, high achieving African “Americans” in their place. This would cause the demise of the Black Mecca many called “Little Africa”, and its destruction began the way of much terrorism, violence and dispossession against African Americans during that era. - A young White woman falsely accused a young Black man of attempted sexual assault, which gave local mobs and White men acting as police "just cause" to invade the unsuspecting community. . . During the night and day of the riot, deputized whites killed more than 300 Indigenous Americans & Africans. They looted and burned to the ground 40 square blocks of 1,265 African American homes, including hospitals, schools, and churches, and destroyed 150 businesses. White deputies and members of the National Guard arrested and detained 6,000 black Tulsans. Nine thousand African Americans were left homeless and lived in tents well into the winter of 1921. . .

Reuters 6/16/2017, “AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas governor signed a law on Thursday to protect the religious rights of faith-based groups in state child welfare programs, but critics said it could be used to discriminate against LGBT and non-Christian families in adoptions.⠀ ⠀ Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 3859 which allows faith-based groups working with the Texas child welfare system to deny services "under circumstances that conflict with the provider's sincerely held religious beliefs." It was supported by several Christian groups.⠀ ⠀ The bill's sponsor, Republican Representative James Frank, said on social media,"HB 3859 bans no one" and has a mechanism for the state to offer alternative providers to anyone denied the right to be adoptive or foster parents because of the provider's religious beliefs.⠀ ⠀ He said the legislation would help troubled children find homes.⠀ ⠀ Abbott's office was not immediately available for comment.⠀ ⠀ Democrats and civil rights groups said the bill could allow private, faith-based agencies to block parents who practice a different religion or who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender."⠀ ⠀ https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/license-discriminate-texas-governor-signs-controversial-adoption-bill-n773286⠀ ⠀ #gayhistory #lgbthistory #queerhistory #texashistory #americanhistory #bluewave #vote2018 #gayrights #transrights #yallmeansall #gregabbott #lupevaldez #lgbtvotes #transhistory #resist #queerphobia

North Bend, a James River Plantation, October 17, 2018. 🇺🇸. . North Bend was built in 1819 by John Minge, a wealthy land owner, for his wife, Sarah Harrison, the sister of William Henry Harrison, our 9th U.S President. Mr. and Mrs. George Forbes Copland II are the current owners. Mr. Copland is the great nephew of Sarah and William Henry Harrison and the great-great-grandson of Edmund Ruffin, who fired the first shot in the Civil War for the South and who was known as the father of agriculture in America. In 1864, North Bend served as the headquarters of Major General Phillip Sheridan as 30,000 Union troops prepared to cross the James River. Today North Bend is a beautiful 6,000 square foot Virginia Historic Landmark and National Register featuring original antiques, rare books, old dolls and a rich Civil War history. It is available for weddings and events, and also serves as a Bed & Breakfast. Self-guided tours of the grounds are allowed, with group and house tours scheduled by appointment.

** multiplePics** Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial commemorates the Battle of Lake Erie that took place near Ohio's South Bass Island, in which Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry led a fleet to victory in one of the most significant naval battles to occur in the War of 1812. Located on an isthmus on the island, the memorial also celebrates the lasting peace between Britain, Canada, and the United States that followed the war. Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial was established to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812, and to celebrate the long-lasting peace among Britain, Canada and the U.S. The Memorial column, rising over Lake Erie, is situated five miles from the longest undefended border in the world. Although the monument bears the name of Oliver Hazard Perry and six officers slain during the battle are buried under its rotunda, Perry is buried in Newport Rhode Island. Beneath the stone floor of the monument lie the remains of those three American officers and three British officers. Carved into the walls inside the rotunda are the names of soldiers and sailors who were killed or injured in the battle. The Doric Column is the only international peace memorial in the United States National Park System and stands 47 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. The upper deck platform is 12 feet higher than the statue of Liberty’s torch. #lovehistory #followmeonadventures #placesmyconversego #putinbay #girlstrip #lakeerie #1812. #america #americanhistory #canada #military #soldier.
