(2016)This area is known as the "Field of Angels" dedicated to 2,200 Louisiana slave children who died before their third birth date. The number is higher and many of the deaths are recorded only because the slave owner wanted to claim "loss of property" on their insurances. #whitney #plantation #statue #americanhistory #true #history #informed #travel #wander #travelersnotebook #expandyourmind

The Mother Road.

There are some things that succinctly define the USA. The hamburger. Tipping. Shit social policies. But for me, what sums the country up more than anything else is the concept of the 'road trip'. There's a reason road movies don't get made in the UK; it would take only 15 hours to travel the length of the mainland.

The most iconic example of this in American culture is of course "Route 66". From being the road economic migrants fled West along during the Great Depression, to tales of beatniks and truckers in the 60s & 70s, this road, running originally from Chicago to Santa Monica on the Californian coast, holds a special place in history, even if the road itself has now been deprecated in favour of fast Interstates.

This is the route as it passes through Albuquerque, New Mexico - itself the longest urban section of the old route outside of the two ends. There's still plenty here that harks back to the Route 66 age, including many roadsigns and old buildings; tho the original tenants have mostly long since moved out, the 'vibe' remains, even if that is mostly a bit kitsch.

The best example of this is the Route 66 Diner, which opened in the late 80s as a retro-restaurant designed to tap into that very vibe - it looks and feels like a 1950s roadside diner as seen in old movies. But all along the road much of the signage screams 'vintage', and neon-fronted motels still line the route; micropubs have replaced cafes but it's still the place to go for a drink and a good time.

Have you been on Route 66? Is it a trip you'd want to do?

В 1773 году произошло Бостонское чаепитие. Переодетые индейцами жители Бостона совершили налет на три судна британской Ост-Индской компании и выбросили за борт 342 ящика чая в знак протетста против беспошлинного ввоза английского чая в Северную Америку. Правительство Великобритании постановило закрыть порт Бостона до полного возмещения ущерба и направило в Новую Англию военные корабли. Эти меры послужили сигналом к всеобщему сопротивлению североамериканских колоний и, в конечном итоге, образованию США. #история#бостон#америка#джорджвашингтон#history#georgewashington#boston#bostonglobelife#americanhistory#newnation#maddison#jeffersondavis#csa#usa#newwar#beapartofhistory#battles#musket#british#army#bostonteaparty

On this day in 1773, colonists in Boston, Massachusetts, carried out the single greatest protest against taxation in U.S. history. This protest, which became known later as the Boston Tea Party, is the inspiration for a book that Kate, my 17-year-old daughter, and I are writing together. Thanks to @aterrellsmith for suggesting that we also start a blog about this mother and daughter writing adventure!💜

Цветовая история моего похода в дом президента Дэйвиса. Экскурс в историю: Еще в начале развития Америки как страны, между Югом и Севером случилось разногласие и плавно перетекло в Гражданскую войну или "Войну Северной Агрессии", как её газывают здесь, на юге. 1861-1865гг. Отмечают наиболее кровопролитный конфликт на Американской земле, который закончился убийством Президента Авраама Линкольна. С южной стороны в то время президентом выступал некто Джефферсон Дэйвис у которого был красивейший дом в Миссиссиппи, на Мексиканском заливе. Спустя много лет и природный катаклизм, дом этот сохранился со всем скарбом и теперь там проводят потрясные экскурсии, особенно во время Новогодних праздников. Именно там я и провела вечер 15го Декабря. Больше ничего не покажу, потому что не люблю спойлерить! Идите и сами посмотрите.

Fort Griswold, Groton, Connecticut, site of one of the last battles of the American Revolution.  The traitor, Benedict Arnold, divided his British force and attacked Fort Griswold on the east side of the Thames and Fort Trumble on the west side simultaneously.  The ultimate target was the American privateer fleet moored in New London.  This battle was a loss for America, but the privateers thankfully escaped up the river into Norwich (Arnold’s native city). The British fleet was unable to pursue up the challenging waters of the Thames.  An armistice was struck soon after.

On this day in 1773, American colonists board three ships in Boston Harbor and throw 46 tons of tea overboard. Today is the anniversary of the original Boston #TeaParty! Colonists were protesting the Tea Act of 1773, which effectively undermined American merchants and gave a monopoly to the British East India Company. Taxes already existed on tea before the Tea Act, but the colonists never really thought they were legitimate. They did not now intend to pay taxes on a forced monopoly! Three ships bearing tea arrived in Boston in late November and early December. Bostonians wanted to reject the tea and send the ships back, but the governor refused. Multiple town hall-type meetings were held. One was attended by as many as 7,000 individuals! On the night of December 16, members of the Sons of #Liberty dressed up as American Indians. (They wanted to express that they were “Americans,” not British subjects.) They boarded the ships and emptied their cargoes of tea into the harbor. The protest was orderly. No looting was allowed. The protestors did not harm anything aboard the ships (except the tea). They even swept the ships and put everything back into place! They returned, later, to replace the only non-tea item harmed: a padlock. The British government was irate and responded by passing measures later known as the Intolerable Acts. The #Boston Tea Party was just one event pushing America closer to #Revolution. But it was much more than that. It was a “magnificent Movement,” as future President #JohnAdams would write. Indeed, doesn’t the impact of that night still reverberate today?

#ARTNEWS: "Then They Came For Me," an exhibition coming to NYC focusing on the mass imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese Americans

In January, the International Center for Photography (@ICP) in New York will revisit an unsavory chapter in American history with Then They Came For Me, an exhibition that focuses on the US government’s mass imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese Americans during the Second World War. We will surely be visiting this exhibition.

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American servicemen to server as aviators in the Second World War. They accounted for 996 pilots and more than 15,000 ground crew who served in all-black units. While they faced discrimination at home and abroad, they paved the way for the integration of the Armed Forces by President Truman in 1948.

The Legacy of Cathay Williams:  Cathay Williams was the first known African American woman to enlist in the United States Army, and the only black woman documented to serve in the US army in the 19th century.⠀
⠀
Born a slave in Independence, Missouri in 1844, Cathay worked as a house servant and during the Civil War she was forced to travel with and cook for an Union infantry regiment. After the war, she along with a cousin decided to enlist in the military, one of the few employment options for African-Americans at the time.  Women were prohibited from serving in the military at that time, so Cathay Williams posed as a man named William Cathay. She enlisted in the 38th infantry in 1866, one of four newly-formed all-black units, which would eventually become part of the legendary Buffalo Soldiers. ⠀
⠀
Williams served for two years, but after contracting smallpox a doctor discovered that she was a woman during a medical exam, leading to her discharge.  She stayed in the New Mexico after her discharge and worked as a cook, but her health continued to deteriorate. Despite the fact that she suffered from diabetes, had several toes amputated and could only walk with a crutch, her petition to the military to receive a pension or disability, was never approved. Not much is known about the later years, but most scholars think she died sometime between 1892 and 1900.
