jwrach22 Quoting Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the third President of the United States (1801–1809). United States is the land of the free and the home of the brave. #equality #ushistory #lgbt 5h

strangelovecraft The reconstructed #french #frigate #L'Hermione at the #tallships festival at #pennslanding in #Philadelphia over the weekend. The original #hermione was the ship that brought #lafayette to the US in 1780 to join the revolutionary war, so the stop in #philly after her maiden #transatlantic crossing is historically significant...

the_daily_warrior This ball was fired out of a British marines musket during the British raid on Essex ( Pettipaug as it was known at the time ) Connecticut during the war of 1812. Presumably it was fired at local militia during the single volley exchange at the waterfront. The round missed its intended target and landed in a house. Realizing the apparent danger to their town and the definitive combat superiority of the British force, the leader of the Pettipaug militia negotiated a temporary cease-fire with the British Captain. The Royal Navy was allowed to achieve its objective of burning ships unopposed and the town and it's people were not damaged. The battle later resumed south of the town when American reinforcements arrived and the British raiding force made it's escape down the Connecticut River. The artifact here is currently housed in a exhibit, at the Connecticut River Museum, Essex Connecticut. (The site of the battle)

realpatmcguire A 32lb gun stands guard along the banks of the Ogeechee River just outside #Savannah, #Georgia at Fort McAllister... Union General William T. Sherman during his #MarchToTheSea will order Hazen's 4,000 man division of the XV Corps to seize the Confederate garrison of about 400 men in order to open up an avenue to the Atlantic Ocean where Admiral John A. Dahlgren and his fleet were waiting with much needed supplies... #CivilWar #civilwarhistory #HistoryThingswithPat #History #USHistory #Savannah #Georgia #GeorgiaHistory #USHistory #battery #ShermansMarch 10h

kizermoore When #Facebook blocks you from posting for a day because you told the truth about the #history of the #confederateflag and its #racist creator. Discussing history isn't even against Facebook community standards, so they blocked me over some #whitesupremacy #whitesupremacist bullshit. But they slow as hell to even remove a #racist post from a white person. That shit is #lame. #racism #ushistory #blackhistory #civilwar #war #slavery #denial #censorship #markzuckerberg 11h

realpatmcguire HUGE THANK YOU to Garry Adelman for recommending that I stop by Fort McAllister Historic Park on the Ogeechee River just outside of Savannah, Georgia! I have never been to a sand and earthen fort before and I was profoundly impressed! Also I gained a new appreciation for the Confederate enlisted-men who were stationed there and had to endure to bugs... That part was ridiculous lol! #CivilWar #civilwarhistory #HistoryThingswithPat #History #USHistory #Georgia #GeorgiaHistory #Savannah #Battery 11h
