I did two of my favorite things today so I’d say it’s been a GREAT day. Thing 1) Hiked with my family. Thing 2) Adam and I went on a historical tour of Walnut Grove Cemetery. I wished I’d been wearing pioneer clothes during the tour similar to what is pictured. #cosplay #historybuff #worthingtonhistory

Stromboli is based on Mangiafuoco, who appears in Carlo Collodi's book The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883). In the original story, Mangiafuoco is the director of the Great Marionette Theater. He meets Pinocchio when he ruins one of Mangiafuoco’s shows by distracting the other puppets. Collodi described Mangiafuoco as "a large man so ugly, he evoked fear by simply being looked at. He had a beard as black as a smudge of ink and so long that it fell from his chin down to the ground: enough so that when he walked, he stepped on it...his eyes were like two red tinted lanterns with the light turned on at the back." .

Just released my first video! It's about the time Russia invaded Afghanistan. Afghanistan has been in turmoil for decades. It is a nation under constant threat of war and terrorism. This episode looks into the origins of this chaos: the Soviet-Afghan War. This was a conflict in which the the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in hopes of establishing a friendly Communist regime. Did I mention that it's all done with stick figures? Watch it at Reen's Time Machine on YouTube or click the link in my bio.

"The 🇬🇧 Fleet of an Empire" - (Part 7 = The issue of shortage of ships and equipment for the BPF) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - Replenishment Oiling at sea was crucial to long range operations for the British Pacific Fleet (BPF) in the Pacific Theatre during the Second World War when the force was established in early 1944 and throughout that year and into 1945. (JC Goodchild) www.navy.gov.au/history/feature-histories/british-pacific-fleet -------------------------------------------- The Admiralty realised that it needed a great deal of new equipment and training, in a short time and with whatever it had to hand for the British Pacific Fleet (BPF). Lacking specialist ships, it had to improvise a fleet train from whatever Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary or merchant ships were available. On February 8th 1944, the First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Andrew Cunningham, informed the Defence Committee that 91 ships would be required to support the BPF. This was based on an assumption that the BPF would be active off the Philippines or would have a base there. -------------------------------------------- By March 1944, the Pacific Theatre had continued to move north and the Americans were now unwilling to allow the British to establish facilities in the Philippines. The estimate had grown to 158 ships, as it was recognised that operations eventually would be fought close to Japan. This had to be balanced against the shipping needed to import food for the civilian population of the UK. In January 1945, the War cabinet was forced to postpone the deployment of the BPF by two months due to the shortage of shipping. #The🇬🇧BritishPacificFleet -------------------------------------------- #UnitedKingdom #UK #GreatBritain #BritishEmpire #SecondWorldWar #WorldWarII #WWII #PacificWar #PacificTheatre #Australia #NewZealand #RoyalNavy #Warship #BritishCommonwealth #IndianOcean #PacificOcean #WinstonChurchill #RoyalAustralianNavy #RoyalNewZealandNavy #NavalHistory #NavalWarfare #MilitaryHistory #History #Historian #HistoryBuff

"The 🇬🇧 Fleet of an Empire" - (Part 6 = The replenishment and merchant ships that were needed by the BPF and its "Fleet Train") •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇬🇧 The Royal Navy heavy repair ship HMS Artifex (F28) was initially deployed to Manus in the Admiralty Islands, from where she supported the ships of Task Force 57 in the Pacific Theatre of operations. www.navy.gov.au/history/feature-histories/british-pacific-fleet -------------------------------------------- In February 1944 the Admiralty estimated that the Fleet Train for the British Pacific Fleet (BPF) would require 134 merchant ships, of about 1½ million gross tons. As only 20 ships could be provided "in due course" the remainder would have to come from: the United States, the Admiralty's resources (although only a "handful" of its 560 merchant ships were actually available), or the general pool of merchant shipping (on which there were "many demands"). And the Admiralty requirements increased from 80 ships (totaling 590,000 tons) in January 1944 to 134 then by the end of March 1944 to 158 ships. -------------------------------------------- Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill had been alarmed for the original requirements for 80 ships, and on April 9th 1944 he issued a minute defining the limits of the Fleet Train for the BPF based on a minimum of 24 million tons of imports "this year" He referred to the Royal Navy getting 230,000 tons of new merchant shipping in about a year. The minute referred to operations "in the Indian ocean or in the South-West Pacific", reflecting his own preference for "Operation Culverin" against northern Sumatra and Malaya rather than the "Middle Strategy". #The🇬🇧BritishPacificFleet

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate: 
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, 
And summer's lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines, 
And too often is his gold complexion dimm'd: 
And every fair from fair sometimes declines, 
By chance or natures changing course untrimm'd; 
By thy eternal summer shall not fade, 
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, 
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, 
So long lives this and this gives life to thee." Thanks for making literature interesting 👍

May 27, 1894 hard-boiled mystery writer Dashiell Hammett is born.
-
-
Hammett published short stories in his characteristic deadpan style, starting in 1929 with Fly Paper. He published two novels in the same style that year, Red Harvest and The Dain Curse. -
-
The following year, he published The Maltese Falcon, which introduced detective Sam Spade. The novel was filmed three times: once in 1931; once in 1936 under the title Satan Met a Lady, starring Bette Davis; and again in1941, starring Humphrey Bogart.

The Confederate Cemetary in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is the final resting place of approximately 3,553 soldiers, most of which perished in the battle of Fredericksburg and numerous others fought in the surrounding area of this beautiful and Historic City. Amongst the dead buried in these quiet peaceful surroundings are six Generals and 2,184 unknown soldiers.
The Ladies Memorial Association of Fredericksburg purchased the land for the Confederate Cemetary in 1867 and maintain it to this day.

NEW HAMPSHIRE'S ANTI-SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT...
...and the signature of the wife of the future governor!? Long before she would become one of the most active members of the New Hampshire League of Women's Voters, Mrs. Francis P. Murphy was part of Newport, New Hampshire's anti-suffrage movement...a fact that didn't appear until last week. This scroll of 206 signature of some of Newport's most prominent wives was drafted on July 7th, 1913 and sent to Washington, D.C. to be entered into record on the floor of the U.S. during the 1st session of the 63rd Congress.

Surprisingly, it was women who were driving the movement to oppose suffrage, generally women of wealth, privilege, social status and even political power. Central to the movement was the then-prevalent notion that in order to be functional, prosperous and pleasant, American society required men and women to operate in separate spheres of influence: public life for men, and domestic life for women. Through the lens of today, women of the late 19th and early 20th century were not the 1950's cook and clean housewife. They were considered nurturers, moral guardians, and peacekeepers, expected to guide the moral development of the next generation by presiding over family, the home and the community as a whole.

After the 19th Amendment was passed and women were granted the right to vote, Mrs. Francis P. Murphy and many of New Hampshire's women took the energy they were investing and transferred it into supporting the platform of the Republican party. Ironically enough, the activism and "thrill" of leaving the private sphere of hearth and home and entering the public sphere was a difficult thing to give up. Some of the most ardent organizers for rallies nationwide to get out the vote were the very women who didn't want to do it in the first place!
