One cannot talk about education in Baytown without mentioning Lee College, the town's Community College. Lee College is the picture perfect story of a community showing how much they truly care about education and putting words and feelings into action. The story of Lee College is one of continuous growth, not only in enrollment (177 in 1934 to over 8,000 today) or square acres, but it has also grown from not offering credit courses in the first few years to offering over 80 today. The school was born sharing a space with local Robert E. Lee High School and over the years has obtained it's own beautiful campus along with programs that reach far outside of campus such as their prison education program which has been a deservedly source of pride for the college. It is also the alma mater of Texas @Rangers Manager Jeff Banister, a fact I personally enjoyed. .

“Joe Kennedy wanted his sons to be conquerors, strong and independent men who could push their way into the Protestant establishment but owe loyalty to no one save the family. There was no room in this plan for a sweet momma’s boy. Lem Billings remarked to Joe Sr. that Bobby was “the most generous little boy.” Joe Sr. gruffly replied, “I don’t know where he got that.” The only similarity between father and son that Billings could discern was in their eyes, a kind of icy pale blue. | Robert Kennedy: His Life -

“My mom had an aunt and she was born in 1895, and once she became of age, she decided to go off and pass as White. There have been generations that have suppressed who they are because of this.” Thank you, Monica Hines, our 1st assistant director, for sharing your family story around the issue of colorism in the US.

#todayinhistory on January 18, 1803, Determined to begin the American exploration of the vast mysterious regions of the Far West, President Thomas Jefferson sends a special confidential message to Congress asking for money to fund the journey of Lewis and Clark. 🗺 Interesting fact: Despite some mild resistance from Federalists who never saw any point in spending money on the West, Jefferson’s carefully worded request prevailed, and Congress approved the $2,500 appropriation by a sizeable margin. It no doubt seemed trivial in comparison to the $9,375,000 they had approved a week earlier for the Louisiana Purchase, which brought much of the territory Jefferson was proposing to explore under American control. #thomasjefferson #louisandclark #ushistory #expansion

Access to safe drinking water has been a major concern for sailors throughout mankind’s conquest of the oceans. Ships normally carried potable water in casks or tanks; however, there was a limit on how long it could be stored in that manner before it became virtually undrinkable. While ocean voyages were generally planned with several landfalls, there are countless accounts of vessels running out of water or having to ration their supplies for days until they reached land or it rained hard enough to catch water.

This 1850s invention, a jet compressor, changed everything. The compressor has three principal parts: an evaporator, a condenser, and a “refrigerator” or cooler. Steam from a ship’s boiler, which was under pressure and at a temperature exceeding the boiling point of atmospheric seawater, flowed through tubes surrounded by seawater in the evaporator. The seawater was heated to boiling and the resultant salt-free steam vapor flowed through tubes in the condenser that were surrounded by seawater. The output was distilled water. The fresh water from the condenser flowed through the “refrigerator,” where it was cooled by seawater and then through a charcoal filter to the ship’s tanks. 
During the civil war, compressors significantly changed the operational capacity of warships as ships could stay at sea for extended periods of time.

It's actually 4 things. Polk had four main goals for his presidency that he all accomplished in one term: 
1. a lower tariff 
2. restore the independent treasury 
3. & 4. acquisition of California settlement and of Oregon county without violence

Due to the conflicts regarding the topic of slavery, the US had been trying to preserve itself using compromises. One such compromise was the Compromise of 1850 that allowed California and the New Mexico/Utah territories to be free states. In return, the Fugitive State Law of 1850 had to be passed. It said that fleeing slaves could not testify in their own behalf and they were denied a jury trial. However, the compromises did not work long-term and ended up with the Civil War. -

In 1848, gold was discovered in California which led to the gold rush and an influx of people moving there. This led to California being turned into a state, a free state in particular. It led to more conflict with the South because it upset the balance of free and slave states in the Senate. -

Eventually, state-level legal codes of segregation known as Jim Crow laws were enacted. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of it because they declared that "separate but equal" (not rly equal in reality though) facilities for blacks were legal. -

Zac Efron just posted the first look of his next role, TED BUNDY, in the film EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE (the title needs work). He is playing the notorious serial killer that claimed the lives of at least 36 people. Experts believe it might be closer to 100 people. There is no release date for the film yet as it is still trying to get a studio to distribute but the film project does look interesting.

The Battle of Nashville Monument was commissioned by the Ladies Battlefield Association (Mrs. James E. Caldwell, President) and created by Giuseppe Moretti. It was dedicated on Armistice Day, 1927, on Franklin Road near Woodmont Boulevard. —
Mrs. Caldwell envisioned a memorial dedicated to the struggle of both the Union and the Confederate forces who clashed here on December 15-16, 1864. Moretti interpreted the scene with two charging horses representing the North and South divided by a wall of Antagonism. The horses are halted and quieted into the spirit of teamwork by a youth who embodies the Spirit of Unity. The word UNITY is on the banner with which he entwines the horses. At the summit of the shaft, an Angel of peace, protects the group.
—
At its original location, a 1974 tornado destroyed the statue's 30-foot carrara marble obelisk and angel that surmounted it. During the 1980's, the building of an interstate interchange left the bronze figures of youth and horses isolated on a bluff behind a chain link fence.
—
The Tennessee Commission selected the new site on Granny White Pike for the monument in 1992. Both Union and Confederate Soldiers fought over this ground during the Battle of Nashville.
—
“Oh, valorous gray, in the grave of your fate,
Oh, glorious blue, in the long dead years,
You were sown in sorrow and harrowed in hate,
But your harvest is a Nation's tears,
For the message you left through the land has sped,
From the lips of God to the heart of man:
Let the past be past, let the dead be dead,-
Now and forever, American”

At the summit of the shaft, an Angel of peace, protects the group. — At its original location, a 1974 tornado destroyed the statue's 30-foot carrara marble obelisk and angel that surmounted it. During the 1980's, the building of an interstate interchange left the bronze figures of youth and horses isolated on a bluff behind a chain link fence. — The Tennessee Commission selected the new site on Granny White Pike for the monument in 1992. Both Union and Confederate Soldiers fought over this ground during the Battle of Nashville. — “Oh, valorous gray, in the grave of your fate, Oh, glorious blue, in the long dead years, You were sown in sorrow and harrowed in hate, But your harvest is a Nation's tears, For the message you left through the land has sped, From the lips of God to the heart of man: Let the past be past, let the dead be dead,- Now and forever, American” #nashville  #tennessee  #confederate  #union  #peace  #civilwar  #uscivilwar  #americancivilwar  #history  #ushistory  #americanhistory  #militaryhistory  #civilwarhistory  #military  #travel  #travels  #travelling  #traveling  #traveler  #traveller  #travelgram  #travelingram  #travelstagram  #travelstoke

Post 36 - Along Colorado's US Route 40

Standing 9,426 feet above sea level, Rabbit Ears Pass carries US Route 40 across the continental divide. Named for unique rock formations at the pass, Rabbit Ears is the first of three crossings of the continental divide US40 makes in Colorado. The road over the pass was begun in 1911 and completed in 1917.

#todayinhistory on January 17, 1893, on the Hawaiian islands, a group of American sugar planters under Sanford Ballard Dole overthrow Queen Liliuokalani, the Hawaiian monarch, and establish a new provincial government with Dole as president. 🏝 Interesting fact: In 1895 Lili‘uokalani was imprisoned for eight months in ‘Iolani Palace for her alleged knowledge of a counterrevolutionary attempt by her supporters. #history #hawaii #hawaiianhistory #ushistory

On this day in 1886, Glenn L. Martin is born. He’s possibly the biggest #aviation hero you’ve never heard of. 😊 He is the “Martin” in #LockheedMartin. He designed America’s first twin-engine bomber. William #Boeing was one of his students! A few stories are often told about him. The first involves an early attempt to fly a homemade plane. On its 1st attempt, the plane bumped across the field a bit before stalling. Martin jumped out to give the propeller a spin. Big mistake! The engine gave a sudden start and the plane began hurtling down the field—with no one at the controls. The plane launched over Martin’s head, nicking his hat and finally crashing in a heap. Martin wasn’t one to be stopped by a little thing like getting hit in the head by a plane, of course. Another story involves the 1914 event that launched Martin as a force to be reckoned with in military aviation. Martin needed to convince the #army that airplanes had a military use. He staged an event at an air show. He created a fake fort! He used his planes to dive at the fort and drop “bombs.” “It was a fake, of course,” he later told a reporter. “We couldn’t [take chances] with an audience….But I had mines planted under the forts. Every time we dropped one of our harmless bombs, someone would throw a switch and detonate one of the real ones.” Needless to say, those watching suddenly saw exactly what a plane could do in #WWI. Indeed, Martin predicted the importance of air power early. “Veritable flying death will smash armies,” he said, “wreck mammoth battleships, and bring the whole world to a vivid realization of the awful possibilities of [planes]….The generals who realize this quickest and fight first with the flying death will win.” How right he turned out to be.

A couple solid seated dimes with great details for the type set! Had these for awhile but never posted them.
.
Two benchmark, (not key) dates in the series as well. 1853 is the first of the arrow-dates. While 1891 was the last year of mintage.
.
Notice the differences. The 1856 has arrows at the date which meant a change in the coin's weight, (still 90% silver composition) just less of it, as silver was on the rise at the time. This lasted until 1855. It also has stars which were later replaced with "United States of America" which was moved from the reverse to the obverse after an issue with the original dies. Also notice the difference in wreaths on the reverse which changed in 1860 along with the stars. Lots of cool history on the seated dime series.

On This Day in History January 17, Former World Chess Champion, American chess Grandmaster and arguably the greatest chess player of all time, Robert James Fischer aka Bobby Fischer (March 09, 1943 - January 17, 2008) dies at the age of 64.

Fischer rose to world prominence In 1972, when he captured the World Chess Championship from Boris Spassky of the USSR in a match held in Reykjavík, Iceland. The match between Fischer and Spassky took an even added dimension of being a Cold War struggle between Fischer of the USA and Spassky of the USSR.

This past weekend in Williamsburg was amazing. Despite the cold and not everything being open because of the off season it was a lot of fun and so good to get to go back to the city. We got to wear our costumes in the perfect colonial setting, I loved just getting to walk around the area and really feel like we belonged there. The staff was very pleasant and receptive to us which meant so much since that hasn’t always been the case and they were all very knowledgeable about their trades. I had a fantastic conversation with the tailor regarding 18th century stays and fabrics that would have been available during that time. I was extremely impressed with how knowledgeable the young Thomas Jefferson was and how nice the gentleman portraying him was. We spent 3 days there and I still feel like I didn’t get enough so it’s good I have an annual pass now lol. I want to send a huge should out to @cherlambeth @thedoctorboy @kutiechick @nightengale37 for making this such a good weekend; for sharing this passion for history and putting up with my…enthusiasm for it. I cannot have a ton of pictures to post so I will warn you about being flooded with even more Colonial pictures than usual.

@Regranned from @dating_pilipinas -  Pictured: March 25th, 1899. Americans bury Filipinos killed near Polo, Bulacan.
.
The American war to occupy and colonize the Philippines was as much fought out of racist prejudices as it was for colonial exploitation of the Pinoy peoples' lands. The United States did not work with the Filipino government that had formed during the uprisings against Spain but rather decided to pay Spain for the Philippines after the Spanish-American War. American soldiers came to the Philippines with the sole intention of killing any and all Filipinos that still desired their freedom after hundreds of years under Spanish rule. The white soldiers viewed Filipinos as "niggers" and called them by various animal names. As the Americans pushed out of Manila the number of massacres they committed against Filipinos only increased in size and frequency. As one white US soldier wrote home: "The weather is intensely hot, and we are all tired, dirty and hungry, so we have to kill niggers whenever we have a chance, to get even for all our trouble."

As one white US soldier wrote home: "The weather is intensely hot, and we are all tired, dirty and hungry, so we have to kill niggers whenever we have a chance, to get even for all our trouble." . . . . . . #Philippines  #Pilipinas  #Pinas  #Pilipino  #Filipino  #Pinoy  #Pinay  #Filipinas  #History  #PhilippinesHistory  #FilipinoHistory  #PinoyHistory  #AmericanHistory  #AsianHistory  #USHistory  #USA  #America  #US  #Military  #Colonialism  #Imperialism  #War  #Battle  #Warfare  #DatingPilipinas  - #regrann

As stated earlier he organized the famine relief efforts after the war. He was the only member of the Versailles peace talks to walk away with an enhanced reputation. As the Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Harding and Coolidge he contributed to very successful trade policies he was the architect of the policies that led to the globalization of domestic industries. During his tenure his department was the only federal department to grow while others continually shrank. He was a progressive in many respects. He believed in the application of efficiency, expertise, rational planning, the use of focus groups and careful oversight. Upon taking the office of president in 1929 he sought to continue the personal philosophy of American traditional beliefs of self help, economic independence but also hinted at and later revealed a willingness to intervene economically.

In places like Philadelphia and New York the dust would be carried away high in the gulf streams and then come down as mud when it rained. A peculiar and uniquely American natural phenomenon.

In the Grapes of Wrath written by John Steinbeck he wrote of the Okies who were forced off their land by increased mechanization and the Dust Bowl.
