The week before last, I had to do a research trip for work. In addition to looking at some cool collections, I got to see some really cool places (some of which I hadn’t seen since I was pretty young).
The first shot is at Ft. Necessity - I barely remember going there as a kid.
The second is Ft. Dewart, constructed as part of the Forbes Campaign. I got to see it as part of the Braddock Road Preservation Association’s annual seminar.
The third is a shot of Ft. Ligonier’s defenses. My mom says she took me there when I was younger, but I don’t remember it.

Tuesday Trivia with the Salem Museum! This past Sunday, Veterans Day, marked the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. A century ago, Salem—and the rest of the country—erupted in jubilation at the great news that the Great War was over! Schools and businesses closed and people took to the streets in a noisy parade. Roanoke College’s 1919 yearbook, “Roentgen Rays,” boldly celebrated the College’s contribution to the success of the war effort: “The knowledge that Roanoke College had one hundred and twenty real officers, in the making, must have contributed in no small way to the [German] Collapse on November 11th, 1918.” Learn more of the incredible stories about this war in the Museum’s WWI exhibit. Don’t miss the virtual reality experience developed by Virginia Tech, and a browning machine gun that has been recently added to the gallery.

On this day in History, in 1956, the Supreme Court upheld the ruling of district court, that segregation on public buses is unconstitutional. In 1956, Montgomery Alabama Bus System forced black people to sit at the back of the bus and if all seats were taken, to give up their seats to whites. The Montgomery Improvement Association, led by a young Martin Luther King Jr, organized a boycott of all intrastate buses. In reference to the boycott Rev. King was quoted as say “It is better to walk proudly than to ride in shame.” Over 90% of Montgomery’s black population participated in the boycott. After the refusal of four black women to give up their seats resulted in their arrests, the four women filed suit to challenge the constitutionality of the city code and state law. In June of 1956 Federal District Court ruled the Montgomery bus law unconstitutional, prompting an appeal by the Montgomery City Board of Commissioners and The Alabama State Public Service Commission to the Supreme Court. The ruling was upheld by unanimous vote thus making it unlawful for providers of public transportation to grant unreasonable preference to any person, in any respect whatsoever or to subject any person to unjust prejudice or disadvantage. The boycott, which lasted 13 months, attracted national support for the Civil Rights Movement and stand as a model of non-violent protest even today.

Inside Robbers Roost, deep in Canyonlands (National Park), Butch Cassidy and his gang constructed cabins, which provided shelter during the harsh winter months. Today, all that's left of this infamous outlaw hideout are remnants of a corral and the edges of a stone fireplace. LINK IN PROFILE!

My first Antique flag parasol I've ever seen in person. I've seen them in books and online. Couldn't let this item pass me by and not become a part of my collection! Could date anywhere from centennial to around 1910-1920. I'm in love with this super cool and unusal piece. It also looks like it was made for a child, it's very small to have been made for an adult. #antiqueflag #antiqueparasol #historyrocks

Intef II was a Pharaoh during the 11th Dynasty. This was a tumultuous period in Egyptian history as the Old Kingdom had already come and gone. This led to the first intermediate period, a time in history where Egypt was divided into competing factions. On side was based in Hercacleopolis in Lower Egypt and the other based in Thebes in Lower Egypt. Intef II was a Theban Pharaoh who ruled for 50 years and was known to be extremely fond of dogs. Eventually his Grandson, Mentuhotep II would reunite upper and lower Egypt. .

Canyonlands National Park, which lies near the town of Moab in southeast Utah, is one extraordinary example of how our past is memorialized in earth. Its formation began nearly 300 million years ago, at a time when it fell below sea level and with rock from distant mountain ranges like the ancestral Rockies and Appalachians. LINK IN PROFILE!
