Our DNA was and is so unique from any other ethnicities that our immune system couldn't handle the gringos diseases that they used a biological weapons against us.  That is why they continue to experiment on our babies and children to this day.  But now we are resistant and we do not have to be their slaves.
Not from Africa or Asia.

The National Museum of American History is celebrating the opening of their new wing "The Nation We Build Together" today. One of the first things you'll see is a very muscular George Washington offering his sword—symbolizing power—to the people. The new exhibitions explore the ideas and ideals of the American people, including what happens when a people decide to govern themselves, the never-ending process of becoming one nation, and more. 🇺🇸🗽✨🗽🇺🇸 📷: @amhistorymuseum

Sadie Pfeiffer, Spinner in Cotton Mill, North Carolina. Photography by Lewis Hine, Working as an investigative photographer for the National Child Labor Committee, Lewis Hine believed that images of child labor would force citizens to demand change. The muckraker conned his way into mills and factories from Massachusetts to South Carolina by posing as a Bible seller, insurance agent or industrial photographer in order to tell the plight of nearly 2 million children. Carting around a large-format camera and jotting down information in a hidden notebook, Hine recorded children laboring in meatpacking houses, coal mines and canneries, and in November 1908 he came upon Sadie Pfeifer, who embodied the world he exposed. A 48-inch-tall wisp of a girl, she was “one of the many small children at work” manning a gargantuan cotton-­spinning machine in ­Lancaster, S.C.

Muhammad Ali was standing before the Supreme Court regarding his refusal of induction into the US Army during the Vietnam War (Clay v United States). He was asked "How can you be a pacifist opposed to the idea of war?" His reply, "I am not going ten thousand miles from here to help murder and kill and burn poor people simply to help continue the domination of white slave masters over the darker people." The charge against him was overturned.⠀

We have our own unique DNA, descendants from our own Continent way before anyone migrated out of Africa or Asia.

Have you ever heard of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion? Nicknamed the “#SixTripleEight”, this battalion was the only #AllBlack, #AllFemale battalion station overseas during #WorldWarII, “charged with sorting mountains of mail & ensuring each piece was delivered properly”. The 6888th consisted of 855 #BlackWomen & was led by Major #CharityAdamsEarley. Major Adams was the FIRST black woman officer in the #WomensArmyCorps (aka #WAC) & was the highest ranking black woman in the army when the war ended. 6888th was created thanks to the work of #MaryMcLeodBethune, who got the support of #FirstLady #EleanorRoosevelt to create "a role for black women in the war overseas." At the time, there was a massive backlog in sorting, processing & delivering approximately 7 million letters to soldiers stationed overseas. Morale was slipping as soldiers were completely disconnected from the warm words from their loved ones. That is where the #6888th went to action. Given 6 months to clear the backlog in England, these #MelaninMagic filled black women got the job done in 3. They were redeployed to other countries in Europe to keep the mail moving. Their motto: “No mail, no morale”. Though the work of these women propped up soldier morale during (WWII), they’re still black & that meant #Segregation. They had to sleep in separate barracks & eat in separate mess halls.6888th vet, Mary Crawford Ragland, said ‘We served our country proudly, & we did a good job, people were so positive. They asked, ‘Why does your country treat you so badly when black people have contributed so much to the country & the culture?’ It was embarrassing having them ask that…When we came back, though, there were no parades, there were no speeches, there was no recognition. They gave us our papers discharging us & sent us on our way.” It took 64 years after the war for 6888th to get the recognition they deserved. Ladies, thank you for your service. You legacy will never be forgotten. To quote 6888th vet Gladys Schuster Carter “You are standing on our shoulders, but let me tell you what our pride is: seeing you young women who have succeeded since us.” Salute!

Another scene from Erie Street in Lowell, Arizona. This tiny town outside of Bisbee was bought by the Copper Queen Mine over 100 years ago. Most of the original town site was taken over by the Lavender Pit mine. Today, old cars, signs, and storefronts line the street, part of a project taken on by several Bisbee residents and artists to preserve some of the cultural history of the area. There are a few operating businesses here, such as the Bisbee Food Co-op, but most storefronts are just a façade. Definitely worth the side trip just to see it.

On this day in history, June 28th 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophie are assassinated in Sarajevo by Bosnian Serb nationalist Gavrilo Princip. While the assassination was an important cause of war in and of itself, it was mostly only a spark that lit a fuse decades in the making, for the causes of the Great War go far beyond the assassination. Since the dawn of large nation-states in Europe in the Early Modern Period, European powers operated on a system of balance of power; creating alliances and going to war in order to prevent one power from growing too strong. However, the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 disrupted this balance and left it unresolved. Germany was left the undisputed superpower of Continental Europe, and Great Britain, France, and Russia were drawn into a game of forging and forgoing alliances in order to best weaken their enemies and secure their positions; it was widely accepted at this time that a European war to resolve the tension was inevitable, but no one imagined how devastating it would be. Because of this, the Great Powers were wrapped up in extensive alliance networks that drew them into the comparatively insignificant affairs of smaller nations. Exacerbating this setting was the incompetence of many nation-state leaders and the breakdown of reasoned discourse. Also, the technology and tactics of the day lent themselves to war and mobilization plans that were inflexible to a fault; all hopes of a quick victory required full mobilization and a first strike without time for negotiation.

Grant wanted to move against Vicksburg both on land heading towards from Tennessee both from the East and from the North with a contingent under the command of William Sherman. There was also another United States force that could apply pressure from the south. Beginning in December and lasting until early 1863 the campaign ended dismally. Nothing that Grant tried succeeded by March and early April the campaign was failing.

Working on a sugarcane plantation was the hardest life an enslaved African could have. Cane cutters had a life expectancy of 10 years, but other jobs in the process were also extremely dangerous.
.
During harvest at Habitation Haydel, work was essentially nonstop. Boiling sugarcane in giant kettles required constant tending: someone to stoke the fires, stir the mixture and skim impurities. The whole process of producing sugar could disfigure, maim or kill.

Siege of Vicksburg

Ulysses Grant was at the same time trying to capture the citadel of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River. This was a war plan left over from Winfield Scott’s Anaconda Plan. The Vicksburg Citadel sat between Memphis and Baton Rouge on the Mississippi River. There were considerable defensive works in place

Battle of Murfeesboro

Rosencrantz moved against Bragg and clashed with him at Murfreesboro or Stones River. A very bloody engagement more than 1/3 of the men in this battle died. In the end Bragg retreated again and Rosencrantz like his predecessor did not follow up.

Lincoln in frustration decided to relieve McClellan and Buell from command. Replacing them with William Rosecrantz in the West and Ambrose Burnside in the East. Both men knew they were supposed to produce results and both men went to produce some very varied results from December to January 1863.  #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #blogger #1862 #uscivilwar #buell #mcclellan #rosecrantz #burnsides #usarmy #replacement

In The United Kingdom and France the war now became a struggle to preserve the Federal Republic and Anti-Slavery. It made foreign aid essentially a non reality for the Confederate States. Another effect of these campaigns was that Lee was now the general the Confederates looked to provide battle field success. Something no other confederate general would achieve during​the war. Lee and the army of Northern Virginia would become the most recognizable national institution of the Confederate States.

Diplomatically Antietam was a great success for the United States. Lee’s retreat made the British and French back away from recognizing the Confederate States. Not only because of the defeat but because Abraham Lincoln took the initiative of adding to the United States war aims by issuing a preliminary Emancipation Proclamation 5 days after Antietam.

Militarily these invasion campaigns were failures for the Confederate States that ended in retreat. The lack exploitation by the United States commanders severely limits the scope of their military victories. This led many in the United States and Confederate States to view these campaigns had limited setbacks rather than complete failures.

Don Carlos Buell 
On October 8th 1862 Don Carlos Buell fought a portion of Bragg’s army to a tactical stalemate and forced Bragg to retreat from Kentucky. Leaving the Confederates with the same end result as the Maryland Campaign. Buell did not follow up his victory like McClellan in Maryland.

Bragg also hoped to reverse the results if Grant's campaign the previous year. He also wanted to influence the politics of Kentucky. Bragg had a Confederate Governor installed at the city if Frankfort. His appointee did not have actual political control of the state but was merely a symbolic gesture at the outset of his campaign which came to an end St the Battle of Perryville.

In the west the Confederates were mounting an offensive campaign under Braxton Bragg who was planning on moving through Tennessee and Kentucky in September and October of 1862. Bragg also hoped to relieve the pressure on the local farmers and slave plantations by moving the theater of war. Like Lee he thought that Kentucky was being held in the United States at the point of a bayonet.

McClellan did not follow up on the victory at Antietam. He did put pressure on Lee during his retreat and simply allowed Lee to return to Virginia un-harassed. McClellan had upwards of 83,000 men Lee had half that amount due to desertion and casualties.

Battle of Antietam 
This allowed Lee to regroup his forces and challenge McClellan at Antietam or Sharpsburg on September 17th 1862. This would be the bloodiest day in United States history. More 23000 casualties were inflicted Lee retreated heading back toward Virginia the next day. With his retreat the military and political aims of his invasion of Maryland came to an end. With that being said it was not seen as a great victory in the United States or in Europe.

George McClellan the commander of the United States Army of the Potomac, came into possession of Lee's strategic plans for the Maryland Campaign. McClellan with the great moment shift could have inflicted unknown damage onto the Army of Northern Virginia. He however moved slowly and failed to apply capitalize on this opportunity.

The campaign began with the movement​ of the Army of Northern Virginia across the Potomac River in moving into Western Maryland. Thomas Jackson took a portion of Lee’s army and captured a United States garrison of 12,000 men at Harper’s Ferry.

It is utterly humiliating and disgusting to live a nation where white people were lawfully allowed to lynch people of color just because they WANTED to. It is disgusting that white people were allowed to lynch a pregnant black mother, cut the baby out of her womb and stomp the baby to death. What is more horrific is that white people refuse to acknowledge this reality. Let's stop denying the past shall we? Someday, the United States and the world will have to face the truth about our dark history. African Americans have been victims of white terrorism and hate for over 400 years. The racial cleansing of 1912 in Forsyth, Georgia is by far the most disgusting act of terrorism our nation has ever seen. An entire county of whites managed to harass, lynch, and torment black families and young children until they feared for their lives and were forced to move out of the county. Thousands of African American home owners left everything behind in fear of their lives. These hate filled white supremacists and bigots did not stop until literally EVERY black body was gone. Whether they left voluntarily or not, most were murdered or driven out past county lines or up North. This novel is quite telling and I suggest EVERY U.S citizen, especially whites who THINK they know American history to tap into this. I challenge you to be different than the monsters in this story. I challenge you to do one thing that scares you a day. For some of you, that might just mean facing the hard truth. #bloodattheroot #americanhistory #blacklivesmatter #racialcleansing #whiteterrorism #emancipateyourmind #facethetruth #unitedstatesrefugeecrisis #silenceisconsent #injustice #americawasnevergreat

1862 was an election year. Lee hoped to influence voters in the lower tier of free states by using a show of force. Also to consider was that a successful invasion of Maryland would liberate Maryland from the United States. Many people in the Confederate States were under the impression that Maryland was being forcefully kept in the United States. Lastly a positive outcome in this campaign would further influence the European states to open further diplomatic relations with the Confederate States.

Lee in the Maryland Campaign of 1862 wanted to remove the theater of combat from Virginia which had suffered greatly in the preceding months and force the United States to play catch up and guess his intentions as a means to make up for being at a numerical disadvantage. Lee also wanted to put pressure on the United States Political system.

1863 – General Meade replaced General Hooker three days before the Battle of Gettysburg. General George Gordon Meade said “Well, I’ve been tried and condemned without a hearing, and I suppose I shall have to go to execution,” in response to his appointment as head of the Union Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. Within a week his army won the Battle of Gettysburg, assuring Meade of a record of success superior to all of his predecessors. #americanhistory #gettysburg #gettysburgpa #battleofgettysburg

In 1953, the two were engaged”

DID YOU KNOW: #Oregon is racist AF?! 🤔 How racist you ask? Please read below: 
When Oregon was granted statehood in 1859, it was the only state in the Union admitted with a constitution that forbade black people from living, working, or owning property there. It was illegal for black people even to move to the state until 1926. Oregon’s founding is part of the forgotten history of racism in the American west.

Waddles Coffee Shop in Portland, Oregon was a popular restaurant in the 1950s for both locals and travelers alike. The drive-in catered to America’s postwar obsession with car culture, allowing people to get coffee and a slice of pie without even leaving their vehicle. But if you happened to be black, the owners of Waddles implored you to keep on driving. The restaurant had a sign outside with a very clear message: “White Trade Only — Please.” #youngblackandaware #americanhistory #knowyourhistory #racismisreal #oregonracism #staywoke #woke  #roots

Who knows what style of architecture is this?
My first thoughts it is #tiffanystyle (natural forms and structures)
But something appeared from  #baroque... In particular oval forms,opulent use of #ornaments
Anyway this is beautiful and this is still Chicago, not #France!

Somehow hidden from view of the main roads despite being less than half a mile from one of Rhode Island's biggest malls, the Pontiac Mills used to be a major hub of the state's textile industry. Built in 1863, the Pontiac Mills manufactured military uniforms for the Union army during America's Civil War, and the village of Pontiac surrounding it prospered. After World War I, however, shifts in ownership and management strategies led to a nearly year-long strike of mill workers across the state, after which the textile industry in Rhode Island (and across New England as a whole) would never be the same. The paternalistic structure of management was broken, and it was in this time period of unions clashing with businesses that the shift of the GOP of Abraham Lincoln began to see its role reversed with the Democratic Party, leading to the incarnations and general perceptions of the parties as we know them today.
.
The Pontiac Mills are currently mostly vacant. Gutted and being converted into living spaces, only the portion closest to the Warwick Mall is complete and open to the public as a NYLO hotel. .

These are photos from Perry's Cave in Put-In-Bay, Ohio. This cave is 50 feet below ground, and being in here was a very unusual experience. In most places in the cave, I was not able to stand straight up with being 6' 2". In some places, the height was less than two feet. Not great for a guy who isn't crazy about closed spaces. 😊 
This underground cave has a lake, and legend has it that the clean water from this lake was instrumental in Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's men winning the Battle of Lake Erie. You can read more here...

Today bring the 48th anniversary of the stonewall inn riots. Here are 2 prominent fieugers in lgbt history. Marsha p Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. And they serve as inspirational reminders that, even when the world seems to be pitted against us, we still must find the strength and courage to stand for what is right. And remember we are one community. #lgbt #lgbthistory #americanhistory #transpeople #trans #gay #bi #lesbian
