Some history you might be thankful you didn't live through

17 year old.jpg

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! I thought it might be interesting today to consider a little history, and maybe think about some aspects of it that we might be thankful that we didn't have to live through.

The statue above is inspiring.
There is a lot we can learn from it. But sometimes we forget how difficult the Revolutionary War was, not only for George Washington's troops, but for teenagers and even children.

. . . childhood in Colonial America meant growing up fast. New Mexico State Historian Rick Hendricks says that "the concept of teenager is something that is relatively new. In the 1770s, at the time of The Revolution, nobody would've really understood the concept of 'teenager.' You were young, and then you were an adult."

According to Kirk Ellis, who wrote and served as co-executive producer on HBO's 2008 miniseries John Adams, "Children [in the Revolutionary era] came into their maturity much sooner than they do now. John Quincy Adams was only 13 when his father packed him off to Russia as secretary to our ambassador to the court of Catherine the Great. John Quincy was already fluent in several languages by that time, including French, the language of the Russian court."

Teens were involved in the American uprising against British colonialism even before The Revolution. Ellis said, "A teenaged apprentice named Samuel Maverick was one of the five people killed in the so-called Boston Massacre, when British soldiers fired into a crowd of angry protesters on the night of March 5, 1770 -- one of the initial sparks that would eventually flare into the American Revolution."

The comparably accelerated adulthood of colonial youths came in handy for both sides when The Revolution began. Rebel militias took in fighters as young as 10, while the British military drafted men ranging from 16 to 60 years of age. It was expected that the youngsters take on the brunt of the fighting and marching while the older men stayed behind to defend their hometowns.

Children and teenagers not involved in battle took on other roles. Because of their seemingly innocent appearance, boys and girls were able to spy on the enemy and relay information back to their sides. University of New Mexico history professor Richard Melzer explains, "They had these big cloth buttons, and sometimes they would sew messages inside the buttons on their coats. And then they would wear the coats and deliver the message. When they got there, they would just pop the button and there it would be."

Smallpox affected them, too, on top of the rigors of war.

Compare the fighting teens of the American Revolution to the Petrograd Women's Death Battalion of the Russian Revolution, before the Bolshevik takeover. Setting an example for the men.

The MOST EXPENSIVE Thanksgiving

Here's a quite comprehensive piece from Breitbart honoring our forefathers on the 400th anniversary of the first and most expensive Thanksgiving:

Ann Coulter gave an excellent summary of the woke interpretation of Thanksgiving: "As every contemporary school child knows, our Pilgrim forefathers took a break from slaughtering Indigenous Peoples to invite them to dinner and infect them with smallpox, before embarking on their mission to fry the planet."

On the other hand,

. . . Pilgrims saw themselves as fleeing a cataclysmic conflagration about to engulf Europe. And like the Roman hero, they too hoped to forge a new civilization with a spark from the dying embers of the old one.

This is exactly how John Quincy Adams viewed the story of the Pilgrims. In a speech in 1802 commemorating the landing at Plymouth, Adams described the Pilgrims as America's origin myth; but unlike other nations, the heroes of our founding myth were clearly known to us by their historical record, and they were defined by their virtue, not by their conquest.

"In reverting to the period of [their] origin, other nations have generally been compelled to plunge into the chaos of impenetrable antiquity, or to trace a lawless ancestry into the caverns of ravishers and robbers," Adams told his American audience. "It is your peculiar privilege to commemorate, in this birthday of your nation, an event ascertained in its minutest details; an event of which the principal actors are known to you familiarly, as if belonging to your own age; an event of a magnitude before which imagination shrinks at the imperfection of her powers. It is your further happiness to behold, in those eminent characters, who were most conspicuous in accomplishing the settlement of your country, men upon whose virtue you can dwell with honest exultation."

Getting there was hard, and they were off course. Then came the first dark winter, then Samoset and Squanto.

The settlers learned from Samoset that this area was the Wampanoag Tribe's territory, but the tribe had been so weakened by the plague that their leader, Massasoit, felt increasingly at the mercy of enemy tribes, who also happened to be the same ones menacing the Pilgrims. . .

With the help of Squanto, the Pilgrims had a successful harvest in the fall of 1621. They had come through the first winter, after losing 60 percent of their group. But rather than mourn the 60 percent lost, they rejoiced that 40 percent still lived and gave thanks to God.

Let the record show that this first Thanksgiving actually was a "quintessential feel-good holiday."

And considering how much it cost them in death, suffering, and toil to get to that celebration, I think it's fair to say that this first Thanksgiving was, in fact, the most expensive in our history.

The REAL First Thanksgiving

Well, actually, the first American Thanksgiving was in Florida! No starvation before the feast. Unfortunately, it was followed shortly by massacres.

In 1565, a fleet of Spanish ships bearing 800 colonists and 700 soldiers sighted land. Since it was Aug. 28, the feast of St. Augustine, the colony was named in honor of one of our greatest doctors of the Church. The entire colony -- all the settlers, all the troops -- went ashore on Sept. 8. As he set foot on land, the admiral of the fleet, Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, kissed a crucifix and then claimed the land for the king of Spain.

The colonists erected a makeshift outdoor altar, decorated and furnished it, and then gathered around as the colony's chaplain, Father Francisco Lopez de Mendoza Grajales, celebrated Mass -- the first in Florida and the first in what is now the United States. Members of the Timucuan tribe were drawn to the beach by the arrival of the strangers and then stayed to watch the Mass. Afterward, the Spanish invited the Timucuans to join them in a feast to thank Almighty God for their safe arrival. And so Europeans and Native Americans shared a meal together, in a spirit of gratitude for their blessings -- and they did so 56 years before the pilgrims and Wampanoags' Thanksgiving in what is now Massachusetts.

Sadly, this era of good feelings came to an end quickly. Two weeks after their arrival, Menendez led his troops against a French settlement to the north. Through his spies in French seaports, King Philip II of Spain had learned that the French were encroaching on his territory. Worse still, the settlers were Huguenots, French Calvinists.

Philip authorized Menendez to exterminate the unauthorized colony. Menendez's expedition killed 130 men, sparing only the women and children. A few weeks later, Timucuans reported that a couple hundred shipwrecked Frenchmen had washed up on a nearby beach and were walking north. Once again, Menendez led out his forces and massacred these Frenchmen, too.

About a century later, the inhabitants of St. Augustine found themselves on the receiving end of national and sectarian violence. An English pirate captured the town, ransacked churches and private homes, killed about 60 people and carried off captives, some of whom he ransomed. He sold the rest as slaves. Colonial America could be a very bloody place.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syren_(clipper)

That brother, went on to enlist as a volunteer ensign in the U. S. Navy during the Civl War and subsequently was promoted to Chief Mate of a Union steamer that captured a Confederate blockade runner. It was worth $600,000 in 1864 dollars when the ship and cargo were sold at auction. He was just short of being 22 years old at the time.

42 America lost 1% of its population in the Revolutionary War. By comparison, it lost 3% in the Civil War, and 0.3% in WWII. Of course, that number has an outsized effect because the dead were primarily the young and vigorous, i.e. the next generation.

The USSR in WWII lost 15%. Germany lost roughly 10%. Poland lost 18%.

43 Yes. the entire concept of being a teenager where you still get kid benefits but get adult privileges is something that showed up in the last 70 years or so. Its ludicrous and I think it strongly encourages the immature behavior of a lot of people these days.

Everyone wants to get the best of both worlds and none of the drawbacks, so teenage years are kind of a dream period even if whiny, ungrateful, and foolish teens rarely know it at the time. This is why you get millennial and zoomer crap about "adulting" as if teenage years are the default but sometimes you have to act grown up.

Your Navigational Hazard post still has me smiling.

My last ship in my Service days was 50% female in my department.

One sailor was quite busty. With a Kapok life-preserver, she had a plethora of man-management potential.

When we would UNREP alongside other ships, I put her on the forward line, the phone and distance line. The amount of attention she got from the other bridge staff and sailors in general was impressive. They even used 30 power Big Eves for clarity at 120 foot distance.

Since its hard to get any real information I have no idea if this O-vid variant has mutated to being no worse than a typical or possibly even mildish flu.

But take heart all. With the coming hyper inflation, especially for gas prices people will be forced to walk more and that will reduce disease risk. And I'm confident the FNM will run lots of stories about this unexpected benefit and how awesome it is.

77 ". . . childhood in Colonial America meant growing up fast. New Mexico State Historian Rick Hendricks says that "the concept of teenager is something that is relatively new. In the 1770s, at the time of The Revolution, nobody would've really understood the concept of 'teenager.' You were young, and then you were an adult." "


Until less than 100 years ago in the US, farmers and wives, tradesmen (blacksmiths, etc. ) and shop owners and wives wanted or needed free help, ASAP. In other words, sons and daughters doing adult work. It took some of the workload off the parents, finally (before widely affordable electric tools and appliances, and rural electrification), and allowed the farm or shop to expand output or throughput. Affordable gas and diesel farm tractors, and towed implements mechanically powered by a
tractor, boosted farm output while lowering required man-hours in the fields.

Yet AOC and her Fellow Travelers want to eliminate the energy sources that made it all possible, without having a fully ready-to-go replacement. Madness and stupidity.

OK, so you get a virus that does not really give you symptoms... your body learns how to fight it off giving you natural immunity.

Does this immunity then also protect you from other strains of the virus? at least partly? If so, HOW IS THAT A BAD THING?

The internet has given us AoS HQ and many alternative news sources, and perhaps that is still our best way out. But that has not stopped DeepState from watching every word, and infiltrating/destroying those that might become a threat to their cartels.

Children today are exposed to sex/drugs/Marxism as if they are adults ... and skools think they own the kids, so does BigGov. Hard to say if we can recover from this planned attack on "The West".

Given the lies we get constantly, this sounds feasible/likely. Mass vaccination into a "pandemic" was the wrong course, especially with the leaky and not all that effective vaccines. ... Dr. Malone explains this all ... and he is now concerned the current newer variants may indeed be a result, and that more leaky mass vaccination (boosters) could move us toward the superBug (my word) scenario.

Also seems feasible that congress or government essential workers were given Ivermectin or other treatments, while the general population was not allowed to have them (unless they took horse paste or found their own alternatives).

Folk and "Early Music" performers actually have a lot in common. (I don't mean the hippy-style 60s folk music you're talking about, but people who are really interested in traditional music.) They're both trying to rediscover old ways of doing things, and also trying to sound good to our modern ears, and also trying not to sound too much like standard "classical" or "acoustic pop" styles. And they often end up with similar results...

Here's an example of folk + early baroque fusion that I like a lot:

Nope; My TV doesn't work except for watching videos or CD's. You might say watching "Golem" a 1920s's silent film from Germany (a film our son picked out) is us giving somebody money; I'm not sure who-however. Maybe the public library? They haven't had any "Tiny tykes with cross dressers" program here, and going to the library is cheaper than going to the store to buy books.

We fired once more and they began to runnin'

I figured this is a better place to post this than above - don't want to bum out happy gardening and pet posts.

Anybody who thinks that the SF Bay Area hasn't devolved into a Brazilian style third world shithole - a security guard who was escorting a news crew reporting on a smash and grab in Oakland died from his wounds this morning. He was shot when trying to protect the crew who was being robbed of their equipment at gunpoint while reporting on the smash and grab. Of course, they need to explain that security is common practice in third world shitholes.

Last I priced a beautiful, white upright Yamaha it was $3600, and that was 8-9 years ago. I decided to get a nice electric piano, and if the ex really did start to play it I'd spring for a real one. Turned out to be a good move. The dogs really grooved on her playing though, so it wasn't a total loss.

When I was looking I was clued in the best place to find a piano in mint condition for pennies on the dollar was to contact local piano tuners.
