While reading Thornhill this morning, this passage stuck with me. These words ring true for so many kids that are bullied. We as adults have to do better. We have to ask questions, we have to be a refuge, we have to take action. Thornhill was a great haunting book that takes a look at loneliness and the search for acceptance. 📚 Thornhill by Pam Smy
#HAMILTON WAS HERE 19: If the Early Republic era of American History has a “Western” story to tell, this is it. Lawlessness out on the edge of civilization. Where thick wildernesses and Red Indians abound. An unwelcome new sheriff coming to town determined to bring order. In this true “Western,” the sheriff was Alexander Hamilton. What we’re talking about in the so-called Whiskey Rebellion. And it brought the Ten Dollar Founding Father farther west in the North American continent than he had ever been before: the rough Monongahela Country of Western Pennsylvania. BACKGROUND: The Whiskey Rebellion is, after a fashion, a not-so-flattering episode of Hamilton history that the musical makes only a glancing reference to at all. This far-flung corner of Appalachia was (and is) rough country. Local settlers—many had long been a thorn in the side of local land baron George Washington for refusing to pay rents—couldn’t bring the grain they raised on hardscrabble farms to markets back East. There were no trains, no canals, and barely any roads. So they distilled what they grew into hard liquor. This was an item not only to be sold for cash, but more importantly to be bartered in the local economy. These Pennsylvanians really were Westerners in the 1790s. And they bitterly resented Alexander Hamilton leading a charge to raise government revenue by taxing whiskey and whiskey stills. In July 1794, some of the pioneers—refusing to pay the taxes that federal law demanded—attacked one of Hamilton’s Treasury Department collectors. Hamilton started pushing for a military response from the moment he heard the news. #hamiltonwashere#pennsylvania#washingtonpa#washingtoncopa#whiskey#whiskeyrebellion#ushistory#pahistory#pennsylvaniahistory#Hamilton#alexanderhamilton#hamiltonmusical#Hamilfans#americanrevolution#biography#graphicnovel#graphicnovels#history#books#bookstagram#ogn#history#instagood#hamiltonla#hamiltonsf#hamiltonchi#linmanuelmirandaisagenius
Nessa graphic novel a quadrinista vietnamita Thi Bui conta a história de sua família, que imigrou para os Estados Unidos no fim da década de 1970, depois de superar várias dificuldades por conta da guerra. Talvez a melhor HQ que li esse ano. Recomendo MUITO.
In this graphic novel, the Vietnamese comic artist Thi Bui tells the story of her family, that immigrated to the United States in the late 1970s, after overcoming several difficulties due to the war. Maybe the best comic I've read this year. I HIGHLY recommend it.
