nycsawake A very lucky Colorado woman found an 8.52 carat diamond this week at #CraterofDiamonds #StatePark in Arkansas

Bobbie Oskarson is from Colorado and said she found her diamond while digging in the 'Pig Pen'. This area of the park is 37 acres in six and noted for being somewhat muddy following rainfall, hence the name.

Oskarson found the gem Wednesday in the southwest corner of the 37½ acre search field and named it Esperanza Diamond for her niece’s name and the Spanish word for “hope.” The park this year has registered 227 diamonds to date. The park’s largest diamond was found in 1924. According to the website of the park, that diamond was over 40 carats in size and called the largest ever found inside the U.S. and is referred to as the Uncle Sam Diamond.

Uncle Sam is the nickname for the largest diamond ever discovered in the United States. It was found in 1924 in Murfreesboro, Arkansas
#UncleSam is mentioned as early as 1775, in the original "#YankeeDoodle" lyrics of the Revolutionary War.
The #BattleofMonmouth was a military conflict between the Kingdom of #GreatBritain and its thirteen colonies in North America during the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar (1775-1783). The year and date that the Battle of Monmouth took place on Sunday, June 28, 1778. The battlefield in which the British and American Forces fought during the Battle of Monmouth was located in Monmouth, #NewJersey. The Battle of Monmouth was inconclusive but ended in a long-term victory for the American colonists.

The significance of the conflict was that the American retreat ordered by General #CharlesLee allowed #Clinton's army to continue to #NewYorkCity.

2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

    5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

    6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. #awake #conscious #spiritualwarfare #God #YAH #love #Faith #OneLove 8h

daphnewayans "Crispus Attucus lost his life in the Revolutionary Way and the crown of England for its tyranny against the colonies the war began. Justice is what they were seeking." ~ @louisfarrakhan #CrispusAttucus was the first casualty of the #BostonMassacre and is widely considered to be the first American casualty in the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar. He is one of the most important figures in African-American history, not for what he did for his own race but for what he did for all oppressed people everywhere. He is a reminder that the African-American heritage is not only African but American and it is a heritage that begins with the beginning of America. 2w

kentakepage The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on June 17, 1775, during the #Siege of #Boston in the early stages of the #American Revolutionary War. The battle is named after the adjacent Bunker Hill, which was peripherally involved in the #battle, and was the original objective of both the colonial and British troops, though the vast majority of combat took place on #Breed's Hill. We remember one of the soldier fought in the battle, Salem Poor (1747–1802) He was an #African-#American #slave who purchased his #freedom, became a #soldier, and rose to fame as a #war #hero during the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar.

spikegonzo I took break from driving and decided to hike for a bit and it's so gorgeous outside and I grabbed time to have some quiet time with God! This path is the battle site in Camden, South Carolina. Camden becomes a battlefield where the redcoats (British Armies) almost won the the Revolutionary war (1775-1783). What's more, their victory at Camden was the high-water mark of British power in colonial America. Yet, the Battle of Camden also paved the way for America's ultimate triumph!

voo_doo_ A lot of people have a big misunderstanding about Memorial Day. It's to remember the fallen who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this great nation. It's also about the gold star families left behind who sacrificed losing a loved one. It's not about Veterans, those currently serving but it is about all the fallen warriors no longer here with us. It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived - George S. Patton #memorialday #rememberthefallen #honorthefallen #army #marines #navy #airforce #americanwarriors #americanrevolutionarywar #wwI #wwII #korea #vietnam #grenada #mogadishu #afghanistan #iraq 1mon

bourneagain87 #earnthis Today I honor the #fallen among our allies. As #America has gone to #war over the years, #warriors from around the globe have joined in the #battleforfreedom. The #UnitedStates has 55 countries listed as #allies. From as early as the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar our friends have risen up to help us #fight. Pictured here are the #British #SAS, the #French #COS, the #Israeli #Sayeret, and the #Canadian #SOR. To our fallen allies who died #indefenseofliberty, I #thankyou. #21daysofgratitude 1mon
