Captain Robert "Robin" Hanna, my paternal sixth Great-Grandfather, fought in the American Revolution. Born in Prince Edward County, Virginia, December 10, 1744, he attended William and Mary College, where he met, and had a close and enduring friendship with Thomas Jefferson. Hanna represented Little River District, South Carolina in the Fifth General Assembly (1783-1784). He was also a deputy for the surveyor general and surveyed acreage on the North and South Carolina border. His tombstone in Sims Cemetery, Franklin County, Indiana reads: In Memory of Robert Hanna was born Dec 10th 1744 And departed this life The 24th of January 1821 He was A brave defender Of his Country's Rights And lived and died an honest man #memorialday #clanhannay #familyalbum #americanhistory #franklincountyindiana #roberthanna #tombstones #ancestry #thomasjefferson #americanrevolution #bravedefender #anhonestman #quintessentiallyamerican #daughtersoftherevolution

Just as I was watching Episode 9, Season 1 of @nbctimeless I got curious about the storyline of Bonny and Clyde. Found some interesting facts: 1. Bonnie and Clyde didn’t spend much time robbing banks. Unlike popular belief through movies and TV, in the four active years of the Barrow gang, they robbed less than 15 banks, some of them more than once. Banks were a complicated proposition for Bonnie and Clyde, and when they were on their own, they rarely attempted bank jobs. They more commonly robbed small grocery stores and gas stations, where the risk was lower and the getaways easier. 2. Bonnie and Clyde were unwilling killers who released more people than they hurt. Whenever it was possible Clyde would more often abduct someone (sometimes a cop), instead of killing them when attacked, make a getaway, and then release the person somewhere down the line. In more than one instance, he gave the unharmed kidnapped victim money to get back home. 3. Bonnie and Clyde were devoted to their families. They both had devoted families who stuck by them through their worst times, and they constantly made every effort to stay in touch with and support their relatives. Bonnie and Clyde made frequent trips back to the West Dallas area, where their families lived, throughout their criminal career. 4. Bonnie and Clyde both had trouble walking. When Clyde was in prison for one of the crimes, he decided to hobble himself in order to escape the difficult work detail. Using an axe, he or a fellow inmate chopped off two toes on his left foot. 5. Bonnie died a married woman – but not to Clyde. When Bonnie was 16 she had married Roy Thornton, a handsome classmate. Roy was a thief and a cheat which Bonnie found out later and he ended up in prison. When Bonnie died he still was serving his sentence.

This piece got lots of attention during my show and to my surprise many people were really drawn to it and like it for various reasons! So for those who wanna know more about it’s origin keep reading! Soooooo in the 1860s, free aborigine/ black Americans grew, ate, and sold watermelons, and in doing so made the fruit a symbol of their freedom. Southern settlers, threatened by blacks' newfound freedom, responded by making the fruit a symbol of black people's perceived uncleanliness, laziness, childishness, and unwanted public presence. The first published caricature of aborigines /blacks reveling in watermelon is believed to have appeared in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper in 1869. Defenders of $lavery used this fruit to paint African and/ or Aboriginal Americans as a simple-minded people who were happy when provided watermelon and a little rest. The “slaves'” perceived enjoyment of watermelon was also seen by the Non native white settlers as a sign of their own supposed benevolence. Watermelons have been viewed as a major symbol in the iconography of racism in the United States. The stereotype was further perpetuated in minstrel shows often depicting us as ignorant and work-shy, given to song and dance even though in actuality black/ African/ Aboriginal labor built this nation giving way to all the platforms that have allowed non native settlers and their offspring the modern luxuries of today. We often forget about the root of why we do and think as we do. This was just one piece within part 1 of my 3 part series that spoke to the seeds of deep rooted propaganda and it’s power to bare the fruits of existing mindsets still carried today. The watermelon image was promoted for decades through caricatures in print, film, sculpture and music, and was a common decorative theme on household goods. #ThisIsAmerica #Propaganda #AmericanHistory through #contemporaryart #AdrienneWade #ArtForSale #Caam (original is 8x10 and is available by request or through my online shop.)

The General I ended up in Wytheville Virginia today, and visited East End Cemetery

The General

Wytheville, Virginia

I ended up in Wytheville Virginia today, and visited East End Cemetery to see Brigadier-General James A. Walker. Brigadier-General Walker was born in Augusta county on the 27th of August, 1832. After receiving the best elementary education that the schools of the neighborhood afforded, he entered the fourth class at the Virginia military institute in 1848. Here he remained until the spring of 1852, and was in the graduating class of that year, when he took offense at some remark made to him by Stonewall Jackson (then Professor Jackson), in the lecture room, and a passage of sharp words took place between the two. Cadet Walker, feeling that he had been publicly insulted and wronged by Professor Jackson, sent him a challenge to fight a duel. It is related of Jackson by one with whom he consulted on the occasion, that, notwithstanding he was a grave professor and the challenger a mere boy, he for a considerable time, debated in his mind the propriety of accepting the challenge, expressing a serious wish that it was possible to do so. Walker's rebellion in the class-room was a grave offense, at an institution where strict military discipline is maintained; but the sending of a challenge to one of the principal officers and professors was a crime not to be overlooked or forgiven, and though Walker stood high in his class, and was popular with all who knew his honest heart and chivalric qualities, he was court-martialed and dismissed from the institution. After leaving the institute, Walker accepted a position in the engineer corps, then engaged in locating the line of the Covington & Ohio (now Chesapeake & Ohio) railroad, from the Big Sandy river to Charlestown, and in this rough and unexciting life he spent eighteen months. He then resigned and returned to his home in Augusta county. Shortly afterward he began to read law in the office of Col. John B. Baldwin, at Staunton. During the session of 1854-55 he took a law course at the university of Virginia, and immediately afterward began to practice his profession at Newbern, Pulaski county, Va. (Continued in Comments)

The National September 11 Memorial A tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3000 human lives lost in the attacks. If you were glued to your television on that horrific day watching how the event unfolded which saw commercial airlines used as weapons, men and women jumping off the buildings and tower's eventually caving in, you would be able to empathise with the enormity of the 9/11 Terrorists Attacks. The memorial has been built in the footprints of where the WTC Tower's were located. It is inspirational to see how the whole of America came together to prevent the lawmakers to go ahead and build another tower in that same very location which were the exact sites that many had lost their near and dear ones. All this led to the formation of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. In my next few posts I'd be sharing some of the visuals I was given the opportunity to take to showcase the articles that were recovered from the horrific site. #911memorial #TheNationalSeptember11Memorial #natgeotravel #americanhistory

"British scouts and snipers gather in a trench at a sentry post in Hamel, France" - taken by Irish Rifleman, George Hackney, year unknown ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Allied use of a 'combined arms' strategy in their offensive at Le Hamel broke up the cyclical slaughter and tactical monotony of trench warfare on the Western Front. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After Russia ended its participation in the Great War in 1918, Germany redirected huge numbers of its army and resources to the Western Front in a campaign termed, the 'Spring Offensive'. The Battle of Hamel on July 4, 1918 was part of a large series of Allied counter attacks on the German forces who had wearied themselves in their massive westward offensive. However, what makes Hamel unique is the manner in which Lieutenant General John Monash directed the Australian and American troops under his command. Convinced there must be a better way to way to achieve his objectives than subjecting his men to mechanical slaughter in No Man's land, Monash implemented a 'combined arms' strategy - which simply meant, supporting the infantry with every weapon of war at his disposal. He believed the infantry's goal was 'not to expend itself upon heroic physical effort,’ but ‘to advance under the maximum possible array of mechanical resources, in the form of guns, machine guns, tanks, mortars, and aeroplanes' to meet its goals. This combined arms tactic produced a stellar success for the Allies at Hamel and would greatly affect the way trench warfare was waged throughout the remainder of 1918. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wwi #worldwarone #worldwari #greatwar #thegreatwar #history #historian #historymajor #warfare #war #warhistory #europeanhistory #militaryhistory #trenches #trenchwarfare #girlswholikehistory #americanhistory #armyhistory #aef #australianhistory #germanhistory #germanarmy #britishhistory #hamel #springoffensive #combinedarms #1918 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [SOURCES BELOW]

When on the road to Boston, the distance left to travel listed on the signs by the highway is measured from the sign to the point of the gold roof of the State House. #bostonma #bostonmass #boston #massachusetts #massachusettsstatehouse #newengland #freedomtrail #roadtrip #statue #architecture #americanhistory #canong5x

History fact of the day: Did you know that on this day, May 24, 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge is opened? After 14 years and 27 deaths while being constructed, the Brooklyn Bridge, connects New York and Brooklyn for the first time in history. Thousands of residents of Brooklyn and Manhattan Island turned out for the dedication ceremony, which was presided over by President Chester A. Arthur (21st) and New York Governor Grover Cleveland (22nd and 24th)! If I make it out there and I ask nicely maybe @beatriceannrose will give me a tour of the area! 😬😬😬

オズワルドがケネディをここから狙って撃ったとされている教科書倉庫ビル。 向かって右端の6階の窓から撃ったということで、そのフロア全体が今は博物館になっています。 各国語の音声ガイドも借りられますのでお薦めします。 その時代の背景や事件のことがよくわかって興味深かったです。未だに謎も多い事件です。 博物館内は撮影禁止なのですが、7階からなら撮影オーケーということで2枚目の写真はオズワルドの目線(ただし実際より一つ上の階)で撮ったものです。 #海外生活#アメリカ生活#アメリカ#テキサス#写真撮ってる人と繋がりたい#写真好きな人と繋がりたい#ファインダー越しの私の世界#ダラス#謎#アメリカの歴史#モノクロ#ケネディ大統領 #usa#roadtrip#texas#dallas#downtown#buildings#globe_travel#ig_global_life#jfk#kennedy #city#monochrome#museum#assassination#cityphotography#history#americanhistory#texasschoolbookdepository

May 24, 1861. Colonel Elmer Ellsworth of the 11th NY Zouaves is killed by a secessionist inn keeper, James Jackson, after taking down the Confederate National flag from the top of the inn. After killing Ellsworth, Jackson himself is killed by one of Ellsworth’s men. The inn was located right across the Potomac river in Alexandria, Virginia. Ellsworth’s death would make him a martyr for the Union cause, and become a rallying cry “Remember Ellsworth!” for Northern Troops. Jackson’s death would also make him a martyr for the Southern cause. _______________ #ushistory #americanhistory #history #usa #american #america #tagafriend #tagsomeone #tagaperson #ellsworth #alexandria #Virginia #dc #washingtondc #civilwar #north #south #confederate #union #potomac

"Like wildflowers in the desert, name plaques sprouted and spread with abandon. Inked lettering was common on early plaques but creativity blossomed; metal packing tape was hand-curled to create cursive letters and knots in scrap wood were artfully employed.” Read about the significance of the nameplates that hung on the barracks through the link in our bio. ❤
