June 23, 1984 - Duran Duran was #1 on the charts with “The Reflex.” Nancy Reagan was First Lady at the time. Mrs. Reagan said she wanted to restore a “Kennedy-esque” elegance to the White House. She often got criticized for spending too much money on clothes. Mary Lincoln, Angelica Singleton Van Buren and Julia Tyler (among others) also caught grief from the public for spending too much money on dresses and events. Rachel Jackson was told she didn’t spend enough money on her wardrobe before her husband was even elected. www.firstladiesman.com #whitehouse #history #flotusnews #flotus #author #authors #authorsofinstagram #america #american #americanhistory #firstlady #firstladies #firstladiesman #historian #historical #historybuff #historyclass #publicspeaker #womenshistory #womenempowerment #leadership #womenleaders #nancyreagan #jacquelinekennedy #marytoddlincoln #dress #dresses #criticism #duranduran

Adolf Hitler killed himself by gunshot on 30 April 1945 in his Führerbunker in Berlin together with his wife Braun. In accordance with Hitler's prior written and verbal instructions, their remains were carried up the stairs through the bunker's emergency exit, doused in petrol, and set alight in the garden outside the bunker. Records in the Soviet archives show that their burnt remains were recovered and interred in successive locations until 1970, when they were again exhumed, cremated, and the ashes scattered.
.
In 2009, American researchers performed DNA tests on a skull fragment that Soviet officials had long believed to be that of Hitler, but the tests revealed that the skull was actually that of a woman less than 40 years old. The recovered jaw fragments were not tested.
.
A conspiracy theory suggests that Hitler and Braun did not commit suicide, but actually escaped to Argentina, where Hitler died in February 1962.
.
Investigators of "Hunting Hitler" claim to have found previously classified documents and to have interviewed witnesses indicating that Hitler escaped from Germany and traveled to South America by U-boat, like many other Nazis who got support from president Perón. He and other Nazis then allegedly plotted a "Fourth Reich".
.
A declassified CIA document from 1955 delights claims made by a "former SS'er" named Phillip Citroen, that "Adolf Hitler was still alive and left Colombia for Argentina around January 1955". Enclosed with the document was an alleged photo of Citroen and Hitler (photo 3). The report also states that neither the contact who reported his conversations with Citroen, nor the CIA station "is in a position to give an intelligent evaluation of the information".
.
Which story about Hitler do you believe and tell us why you do think so?

Stories of WW2 heroes who saved lives by sacrificing own ---------------------
Élise Rivet
Was
Mother Superior at the convent of “Notre Dame de Compassion”, where she not only hid refugees from the gestapo, but also used the convent to stash some weapons & ammunition for the resistance. She was eventually caught & sentenced to hard labor. She volunteered to be killed in place of another woman who has children and is taken to the gas chamber. -----
Élise Rivet (January 19, 1890, Draria, Algeria – March 30, 1945, Ravensbrück concentration camp, Germany) was a Roman Catholic and World War II heroine.

The daughter of a French naval officer, she joined the convent of the medical sisters of "Notre Dame de Compassion" in Lyon. In 1933 she became "Mère Marie Élisabeth de l'Eucharistie", the convent's Mother Superior. After the fall of the French Third Republic to Nazi Germany in World War II, she began hiding refugees from the Gestapo[citation needed] and eventually used her convent to store weapons and ammunition for the Mouvements Unis de Résistance (MUR). On March 24, 1944 she and her assistant were arrested by the Gestapo and taken to the prison at Fort Montluc in Lyon. From there she was taken to Romainville before being shipped to Ravensbrück concentration camp near Berlin, Germany. There, stripped of her religious garments, she was forced into hard labor. With the end of the War in sight, the Germans began a massive amount of killings by gas chamber, including Mother Élise, on March 30, 1945, only weeks before the war ended.

In 1961, the government of France honored her with her portrait on a postage stamp and a street bearing her name in Brignais (Lyon) was inaugurated on December 2, 1979. In 1997, she was posthumously awarded the Médaille des Justes and in 1999 the "Salle Élise Rivet" was named for her at the Institut des Sciences de l'Homme in Lyon.

The Battle of South Mountain was the first Civil War Battle fought in the State of Maryland and a prelude to the battle of Antietam, also known as Sharpsburg, the bloodiest day in US History.
The South Mountain Battle was in fact three different battles for the control of three mountain passes: Crampton’s, Turner’s and Fox Gaps. This monument is located at Crampton’s Gap!

Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci (c.1490)

Cecilia Gallerani was a member of a large family that was neither wealthy nor noble. Her father served for a time at the Duke's court. At the time her portrait was painted, she was about 16 years old and was renowned for her beauty, her scholarship, and her poetry.

The Sir Christopher Wren Building at the College of William & Mary - the oldest college building still standing in the United States. My TA told my seminar how it was a goal for many students to have a class in this building. We were lucky to have our seminar in the basement of the Wren building. During one of our sessions (if I'm remembering correctly) she mentioned how the basement used to be a kitchen area for the slaves. She then mentioned how a project called 'The Lemon Project' had been established a couple of years before, which focused on studying the 300-year relationship between African Americans and the college. You can learn more about The Lemon Project on William & Mary's website. .

Harriet Tubman in 1911 at age 89.
Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved people, family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry. During the Civil War, she served as an armed scout and spy for the United States Army. In her later years, Tubman was an activist in the struggle for women's suffrage.

The casualties suffered in the Philippines left the expedition with too few men to sail all 3 of the remaining ships. Consequently, on 2 May, they abandoned and burned Concepción. Reduced to Trinidad and Victoria, the expedition fled westward and later anchored off the Brunei coast.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Magellan's assistant, Pigafetta, recorded the splendour of the court of Brunei's ruler, Rajah Siripada in his journal. The king was said to have many luxurious possessions, from 2 pearls the size of hens' eggs, porcelain from China, eyeglasses from Europe, gold and many others. In addition, Brunei also boasted their tame elephants and an armament of 62 cannons, more than 5 times the armament of Magellan's ships.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From Brunei, they finally reached the Maluku Islands (or famously known as the Spice Islands) on November 6, 1521. After trading with the Sultan there, the 2 remaining ships, laden with valuable spices, decided to return to Spain by sailing westwards.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, as they left the islands, the Trinidad began to take on water. The crew tried to discover and repair the leak, but failed. They concluded that Trinidad would need to spend considerable time being overhauled, however the small Victoria wasn't large enough to accommodate all the surviving crew.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a result, Victoria with some of the crew sailed first for Spain. Several weeks later, Trinidad departed and tried to return to Spain via the Pacific route, but the attempt failed as the ship was wrecked in a storm.

Windsor Castle

Just about a month ago, Windsor was full of tourists all keeping a watch out for the Royals. However I think, the best time to visit Windsor Castle is when there are very little tourists and spring is painting the landscape green.

The Windsor Castle is one of the mightiest castles which stands as sturdy as any newly constructed building.
This mighty fortress was built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror. Since then it has seen many Monarchs come and go.

Windsor Castle is also one of the Queen’s residential Palaces. This makes it the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world!

A brilliant specimen of Shah Jahan's Rupee from Daulatabad dated A.H. 1061 RY 24 with well-centred striking showing complete legends on the reverse and almost complete legends on the obverse.
Daulatabad (Deogiri) was one of the last bastions of the Nizamshahi rulers of Ahmadnagar especially after the fall of Ahmadnagar Fort in 1600 A.D. to the Mughals. Daulatabad was conquered by the Mughals during the reign of Shah Jahan facilitated by the death of Mallik Ambar, the Abyssinian chief strategist of the Nizamshahi kingdom in 1626 and the poor leadership after his death.
With Daulatabad's fall on 28 June 1633 also came the surrender of its Nizam Shahi ruler, Husain Nizam Shah III who was sent for internment to Agra and then Gwalior.
Long after Daulatabad became a major mint for Mughal Deccan during Shah Jahan's reign due to its strategic location. This brilliant coin was issued in the name of Shah Jahan to showcase Mughal power over the Deccan to the remaining Deccan Sultanates and the local populace.

Here’s a compilation of the Battle of Berlin I edited. I used stock historical footage and made a simple original soundtrack.
I wanted to convey how brutal and desperate the combat was. The Germans fought for every block, building and room until the overwhelming Russian assault forced them back. One of the most notable weapons used during the street fighting was the point blank artillery. They literally tore the city apart, turning it into a crumbling inferno of dust and ash, ignoring all the civilians still there.
By April 28th, 1945, Battle Commandant General Weidling reported to the Führer that there was only enough ammunition left for two days’ fighting and that food was virtually unobtainable. The following evening his report was more desperate- no ammunition, no chance of outside aid, no hope left. Hitler then began to realize that the end had come, and spent much of the day composing his last will and political testament.
I’m adding the full video to my Instagram Tv. Check it out if you want.

If you’re particularly fond of the Normandy campaign then you’ve likely seen these photos that I’ve gathered up here at some point or another.

All of these pictures were taken on June 9, 1944 and show fatigued men of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend regrouping after what was supposedly a failed attack in Norrey-en-Bessin near the town of Rots, France. Several of these men have been identified, such as regimental commander SS-Obersturmbanführer Max Wünsche (bandaged head, addressing his men in the second photo), SS-Hauptscharführer Wilhelm Boigk (second photo with grenade in belt), SS-Hauptsturmführer Rudolf von Ribbentrop (far right in the second photo), SS-Obergrenadier Günther Hamel (carrying the MG-42 in the third photo), and SS-Unterscharführer Paul Koslowski (center of third photo). Also identified is SS-Grenadier Klaus Schuh (learning against the wall in the first photo), who would be killed on June 26, 1944. The man who has garnered the most attention over the years, however, is SS-Sturmman Otto Funk, seen front and center in the very first picture.

At the time these pictures were taken, Funk was an 18-year-old Corporal serving in the III. Zug (3rd Platoon), 15. Kompanie, SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25, the outfit the rest of these men also belong to. There’s nothing particularly special about Funk in particular, or any of these men for that matter, although his clearly exhausted facial expression is probably why these photos gained some popularity – it depicts the general mood for all of these men at the time. Funk would continue to find until he was captured by Americans towards the end of the war. He died in September 2011, aged 85.

I’ll dive into the backstory of the 25th SS Panzergrenadier Regiment and their actions at Norrey-en-Bessin in a follow-up post, so stay tuned.

This statue of the first and only President of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis, is shown in this image taken by photographer David Preziosi as it remains standing in the destroyed Jefferson Davis Presidential Library and Museum with a Confederate battle flag in its hand, which happened after Hurricane Katrina ravaged much of the American Gulf coast from Florida to Texas. Image taken at the Jefferson Davis Presidential Library, Biloxi, Mississippi. September 12th 2005. It was reported that the flag in the hand of the statue actually wasn't placed there, but rather was blown there by the ferocious winds of Hurricane Katrina. Despite its name it is not an official US Presidential Library, for the obvious reason that Jefferson Davis was never actually a President of the United States. As a result the library is not administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, but it is supported by the State of Mississippi. The library itself was catastrophically damaged by Hurricane Katrina and had to be completely rebuilt, but thankfully the artifacts within it survived after they were placed in environmental storage. The new library was opened on June 3rd 2013, and this statue of Jefferson Davis now stands near the front entrance of the building.

The first line to this poem is a true eye opener for us to use now in days. Emily Dickinson’s perspective of the world she lived in is super enlightening and interesting to read about. She became well known only after her death in 1886. Ironically fame is not something she wanted; in fact, she told her sister on her deathbed to burn all of her letters and works, her sister upon doing so stumbling on a chest that had a plethora of other pieces of literary art that Emily Dickinson created while she was still alive. This is one of the pieces we were left with today...

Did you know that apples often appear as dangerous in fairytales, religious traditions, and mythology? That definitely has to do with the whole Eve-eating-the-apple-from-the-forbidden-tree thing. But several centuries ago, people used the word “apple” as a way to indicate foreign fruits. Europeans called tomatoes “love apples” when they were first introduced. So it could be that old-timey stories that talk about apples were actually referring to fruit from foreign countries! Woooooooah! (I am having a weird day).

On this day in history, June 22nd 168 BC, an army of the Roman Republic defeats the forces of Macedonian King Perseus at the Battle of Pydna during the Third Macedonian War. While Rome was occupied with the Second Punic War, King Philip V of Macedon began preying on Rome's client states in the region. Rome made peace with Philip in his favor, but when he continued antagonizing her allies and clients, the Second Macedonian War was declared. Philip was thoroughly defeated and forced to make many concessions of power. When his son Perseus ascended to the throne, he sought to regain the power and resources lost by his father through the treaty. Rome declared war and Macedon never recovered. The Battle of Pydna affirmed the greater tactical versatility of the Roman Maniple over the Macedonian Pike Phalanx in battle. The power of the Phalanx was rooted in tight-knit organization that made it nearly impenetrable from the front. The mobile Maniple, however, was able to lure its enemy over rough terrain, thus loosening its organization and creating an opportunity for the Romans to close in where their short swords were much more effective than the long pikes. Perseus was dethroned and Macedon was split into four nominally sovereign republics that payed tribute to Rome. When a pretender attempted to reunite Macedon, Rome declared a fourth war and Macedon was formally annexed as one of the first provinces of Rome's budding Empire.

The royal couple, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, in the humble house of Sauce as their flight is stopped in the small village of Varennes the night of June 21-22, 1791. This image gives us a closeup view of the beleaguered Queen with her two children as she copes with these circumstances she never expected now facing arrest by the alarmed citizens in the rustic abode of the grocer magistrate Jean/Baptiste Sauce in remote Varennes. It is the first time in her life Marie Antoinette will not sleep in a palace. The King and Queen, royal fugitives will now be forced to return to Paris, unable to escape the cauldron of the French Revolution.
