Colorization is life-giving... Up until the 1970s, color photography was extremely rare, and so when we think about history prior to that time, we often envision it in black and white. Today’s technology now enables us to “colorize” historical photos, giving us our only chance at seeing what the world really looked like back then. And it was truly spectacular. Take a trip back in time through these photos below. It’s quite incredible to see Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein in living color. 1. Claude Monet in 1923. 2. Brigadier General and actor Jimmy Stewart. Stewart flew 20 combat missions over Nazi-occupied Europe, and even flew one mission during Vietnam . 3. Pablo Picasso. 4. Lou Gehrig, July 4, 1939.

Do you know who Reynoldsburg is named after or that Reynoldsburg had the first public high school in Franklin County? Read more here: Reynoldsburg was named for James C. Reynolds who was born in 1806. He arrived in the area around 1831 where he initially boarded with John French. He then built a cabin and opened a sutler's store for the road gang building the Cumberland Road. While selling work clothes, whisky, molasses, calico and general provisions, Reynolds provided a central gathering place and was the first merchant in the area. It is possible the town was named "Reynolds Burgh" because the mail was delivered to his store. Reynolds, a Whig, served as a Brigadier General in the Ohio Militia and a Representative in the Ohio General Assembly. He died of complications from malaria in 1854. The Cumberland Road, better known as the National Road, was one of the main reasons that Reynoldsburg grew into the thriving city it has become. Before the National Road was built there was a trail which had its begin ...
2015: Don’t Contravene Electoral Laws, NYSC D-G Warns Corps Members The Director General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Johnson Olawumi, has enjoined corps members that will participate in the conduct of the 2015 general election not to contravene electoral laws or accept financial inducement from politicians to aid election rigging. The NYSC boss, who made this known while speaking to journalists in Issele-Uku, Delta State yesterday, also called on corps members to see their posting to the state and their participation in the service year as a national assignment they should be proud of, advising them to avoid unnecessary and authorized journeys that may endanger their lives

At General Greene's memorial service yesterday, I felt like both participant and outside observer. Working at a military base here in Kabul, the attack feels not as physically distant to me as it would have been back in the States. Nor spiritually distant, as I'm contributing to the same mission; nor socially distant, as one of my co-workers' longtime friends works at the military academy, and was a few feet away from gunfire. Yet I also knew that at the memorial service, I'm more outside observer than participant. Which, of course, is okay. Contributing to the Afghanistan war effort fulfills an intellectual, spiritual, and patriotic desire I've had for several years now. I'll be forever proud that I was able to find myself here, regardless of precise role. As a contractor, and not as somebody who has ever served in uniform, my deployment experience is distinctly different from those in the military. I don't know what I don't know, but I do know I have a significantly different experience. During the nati ...
After the death of Meriwether Lewis, William Clark was appointed territorial governor in addition to being a brigadier general over the Missouri militia and Indian affairs. He served in this capacity during the War of 1812. Following admission in 1821 of Missouri as a state, Clark was appointed U. S. Superintendent of Indian Affairs and reported directly to the President and Secretary of War. He was responsible for negotiating with Indian tribes the transfer of land and their removal to reservations. Clark was unable to resolve all Indian questions. One fiery Chief was Black Hawk, stirring up trouble in Illinois. One young American from New Salem who joined the militia to fight Black Hawk was Abraham Lincoln. Someone else to become well known also there fighting Black Hawk in 1831 was Lt. Jefferson Davis. Lt. Davis later led the captured Black Hawk off to confinement. Clark did have pleasure however in 1831 meeting with a group of Nez Perce Indians; he hadn't seen any Indians living west of the Divide sin ...

An Afghan soldier opened fire at a British-run military academy outside Kabul on Tuesday, killing a US major general and wounding at least 15 other troops including a German brigadier general. The US two-star general was identified by a US official to the Associated Press as Maj Gen Harold Greene, who becomes the highest-ranking American officer killed in nearly 13 years of war in Afghanistan. The Pentagon's press secretary said he believed the officer was the highest ranking US military casualty since 9/11. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Maj Gen Harold J Greene's family, and the families of our soldiers who were injured today in the tragic events that took place in Afghanistan. These soldiers were professionals, committed to the mission. It is their service and sacrifice that define us as an Army," said General Ray Odierno, the chief of staff of the US army Early reports of the incident were fragmentary. A terse initial statement from Nato's command in Afghanistan, known as the International Security ...

Isreal has used three internationally banned weapons in its recent attack on the Gaza strip, Safwat-al -zayat a retired brigadier general in the Egypt and an expert in military affairs told the anadolu news agency that isreals use of such Internationally banned weapons is a continuation of approach it adopted in operation cast lead in 2008/2009.

THIS ALASKA AIRLINES PILOT IS CORRECT Do you remember the scene? The Senate. Barbara Boxer hearing from a Brigadier General? Silly General!

Read the letter sent to Sen. Barbara Boxer from an Alaskan Airlines pilot below. Many of us witnessed the arrogance of Barbara Boxer on June 18, 2009 as she admonished Brigadier General Michael Walsh because he addressed her as "ma'am" and not "Senator" before a Senate hearing. This letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines named Jim Hill. I wonder what he would have said if he were really angry. Long fly Alaska and Captain Hill !

Army Retires Major Al-Mustapha The Nigerian Army has approved the voluntary retirement of the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, Blueprint reliably gathered. The retirement has laid to rest the controversy surrounding Al-Mustapha’s return to service and purported promotion to the rank of Brigadier General in 2013 after he was freed from prison. Blueprint gathered that the Army Council gave the approval of Al-Mustapha’s retirement based on the extant laws and condition of service in the Nigerian Armed Forces. Sources told our correspondent that the Army Council which approves promotion and retirement of officers of the Nigerian Army based on Harmonized Terms and Conditions of Service (HTACOS) approved the retirement last week. “Al-Mustapha’s retirement was approved by the Army Council and backdated to June 2013. This means, he served the Nigerian Army for 33 years. It is a voluntary retirement,” the source said. “Even though, by l ...

Defense Minister Tea Banh, who rushed to the crash site in a muddy pond south of the capital, said a fifth person on the chopper was seriously injured. Gen. Um Phy, deputy chief of staff of Cambodia's air force, confirmed the casualty count and said the aircraft was a Chinese-made Z-9 helicopter. Authorities had previously said five people were killed.

An incident report filed by police at the scene said the generals were the head and deputy head of the helicopter unit, and the other two men were pilots. Military officials confirmed the men's ranks, but not their positions. The survivor was not identified. The . ...

Dave Cumming just barely beat out Tom Hanson on this man: Geoerge Hume Steuart. Birth: Aug. 24, 1828 Death: Nov. 22, 1903 Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. He graduated from the US Military Academy in 1848 and was commissioned an officer in the 2nd Dragoons. A Captain at the start of the Civil War, he was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the 1st Maryland Confederate Regiment. In July 1861 he was promoted its Colonel, and became Brigadier General of Confederate Cavalry in March 1862. He was badly wounded at Cross Keys on June 8, 1862, and his brigade suffered severely in the attack on Culp's Hill at Gettysburg in July 1863.

We had a wonderful fun tbi support group meeting last Thursday. We had a friend of mine who is an insurance man with LTC and all that boring stuff but he made it fun and everyone enjoyed his intelligence, fun spirit and total knowledge. I came home in the hard dropping rain but I am so glad I went. One more challenge. Our new assistant is a really interesting man as he is a Brigadier General. He flew with the Thunder Birds and knew Chuck Yeager the 1st man who broke the sound barrier. He's going into neuro. I am so glad that is his chosen field. Yup the next day I got stranded but what frightens you makes you stronger after it is done. Darn...my shoulders aren't that broad, it's the front lower part of me. I am so tired so heed my advice and try to come to one of our meetings. We had a house full but take water and food with you. Also I had a few napkins and I could wipe the glow off my face from the heat...man it was humid. This is just an update on our group meeting on tbi!

On August 6th, 1945, Paul Tibbets changed the nature of warfare forever, delivering the first atomic strike against Hiroshima, Japan. Initially praised for preventing a bloody and drawn out land war in Japan, public opinion soon changed and to some he became a pariah.

For my brothers at our sister battalion, 1/505th infantry, 82d airborne division. Mark E. Abney Sr., Robert Prince, Emmett Walsh, and Andrew Kocsis, your battalion commander who was in charge of Mogadishu operation. I hated President Bill Clinton for putting rangers and General Garrison in a no win situation. God forgive me. I don't care bout political parties when it comes to troops. General Garrison was an outstanding commander who cared bout his men. You have to know him. We in the 2/505th had tremendous respect for him and our fellow paratroopers in 1/505th. Please be sure to share with fellow studs. General Garrison was being groomed for the top position. William F.

Nigeria Gov't Concludes Investigation Regarding Missing Girls ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria wrapped up its inquiry into the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by militants on Friday with little progress to show, reporting almost none had been freed after the initial kidnapping some girls escaped from. Submitting the final report, Brigadier General Ibrahim Sabo said 219 girls remained at large, a total virtually unchanged since Boko Haram militants stormed their secondary school in northeast Borno state on April 14 to kidnap them. A total of 57 girls, almost all of whom escaped shortly after the abduction, have been reunited with their families, he added. The kidnapping of the teenage girls taking exams in Chibok village sparked global outrage for its sheer barbarity.

Impeachment: Nyako begs in Abuja June 21, 2014 / in News 12:19 am / Comments By Soni Daniel, Northern Region Editor, Henry Umoru and Umar Yusuf The Adamawa State governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako and his Deputy, Mr James Bala Ngilari were yesterday said to be in Abuja, begging to be saved from impeachment by members of the state House of Assembly. The House, Wednesday accused the Nyako and Ngilari of gross misconduct in its notices of impeachment on the two leaders. The notices, it was gathered would now be served through substituted service. However, this was even as the Adamawa State government yesterday said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had frozen its accounts in all the commercial banks in the country. The embattled governor yesterday visited former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, begging him to intervene in the political imbroglio. Nyako was said to have visited Atiku along with to the former Chairman of the EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and the Chairman, Adamawa State ch ...

While working on ancestry this morning and researching Clay County Indiana where my Grinslade ancestors use to live, I came across this story of a deserter. Nothing to do with our family, but a very interesting and moving record that is in the records of the history/bibliography of Clay County. THE FIRST EXECUTION OF A DESERTER IN THE WEST. Friday afternoon, a little after 3 o'clock, Robert *** a member of Com- pany D, Seventy-first Indiana Volunteers, was shot by order of Court Mar- tial, near Camp Morton, in this city [Indianapolis], for desertion. We be- lieve this is the first execution for such an offense, or any military offense, in the West, and the near approach of the limit of leniency extended by the President to deserters, as well as the solemnity of the occasion itself, makes it peculiarly impressive and important. The order of execution sets forth the offense, and the action of the court and authorities, so fully, that we need do no more than reproduce it here. GENERAL ORDERS NO. 23. Headqua ...
With World War I entering its third year, a controversial U.S. military expedition against Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa brings the neutral United States closer to war itself, when Mexican government troops attack U.S. Brigadier General John J. Pershing's force at Carrizal, Mexico, on June 21, 1916. In 1914, following the resignation of Mexican leader Victoriano Huerta, Pancho Villa and his former revolutionary ally Venustiano Carranza battled each other in a struggle for succession. By the end of 1915, Villa had been driven north into the mountains, and the U.S. government recognized General Carranza as the president of Mexico. In January 1916, to protest President Woodrow Wilson's support for Carranza, Villa executed 16 U.S. citizens at Santa Isabel in northern Mexico. Then, on March 9, he ordered a raid on the border town of Columbus, New Mexico, in which 17 Americans were killed and the center of town was burned. Cavalry from the nearby U.S. Army outpost Camp Furlong pursued the Mexicans, killing ...
Military reacts to its men impunity against Amaechi When contacted on why soldiers detained Mr. Amaechi, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, Olajide Laleye, denied that the incident occurred. “That’s ridiculous, on what grounds? How could the military have arrested the governors? That’s not true, there was no arrest,” Mr. Laleye, a Brigadier General, said. The military and the Nigerian Police have pledged to ensure security during the Ekiti election; but have been accused of aiding Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. The three major candidates in the election are Mr. Fayemi of the APC, Ayo Fayose of the PDP, and Opeyemi Bamidele of the Labour Party. But Governor Amaechi himself confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that he was detained by soldiers who barred him from travelling to Ekiti. His aides later said he was released and allowed to return to Akure but that his plane remained impounded.

Seventy years since D-Day. There are so many amazing stories about D-Day as it was a day where the Allies prevailed on the battlefield due to the heroics of the greatest generation. One of my favorite stories is of Ted Roosevelt III, son of President Teddy Roosevelt. Ted served with distinction in WWI, being promoted up to Lt. Colonel. While in France in WWI, he noticed that the boots that his men had were sub-standard, so he used his own money to buy every soldier in his battalion new boots. For his heroic leadership in WWI, he received the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest award possible after the Medal of Honor. Then Roosevelt volunteered to serve in WWII, despite being in his 50s. He was quickly promoted to Brigadier General and led troops successfully in campaigns in Africa, Italy and Sardinia before being assigned to help prepare the troops in England for the Normandy invasion. Despite the fact that Ted had a heart condition and arthritis necessitating the use of a cane, he demanded th ...

A Case Study on the Management of Internally Displaced Persons of the 2011 Post Election Violence in Kaduna State Nigeria at Hajj Camp Mando, Kaduna Part I BY Maikudi A. S. Sanusi Adamu Bala Hassan M. Abdullahi MAY 2014 “The violent riots that trailed the April 2011 Presidential elections may have come and gone but for Awwal and several other victims, the memories may indeed last for as long as they live” . 1. Preamble The ugly phenomena of involuntary Internal Displacements of persons are growing rapidly in Nigeria, both in terms of the population size involved and the geographical spread of the areas affected since 1999 when the country transited to civil rule as part of the transition to democracy. United Nations document on the subject defined Internally Displaced Persons as “persons or groups of persons who have been forced or obligated to flee or to leave their homes or places of habitual residence, in particular as a result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of ...
The Lal Masjid was built in 1965 and is named for its red walls and interiors. According to Capital Development Authority (CDA) records, the Lal Masjid is one of the oldest Mosques in Islamabad. Maulana Muhammad Abdullah was appointed its first imam. Abdullah was critical of all governments except Zia's with whom he was very close. General Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq had very close relationship with Maulana Muhammad Abdullah, the former head of the Mosque. During the Soviet war in Afghanistan (1979–1989), the Red Mosque played a major role in recruiting and training mujahideen to fight with the Afghan mujahideen. Throughout its existence, it has enjoyed patronage from influential members of the government, prime ministers, army chiefs, and presidents. Several thousand male and female students live in adjacent seminaries. After Maulana Muhammad Abdullah was assassinated in 1998, his sons Abdul Aziz Ghazi and Abdul Rashid Ghazi took over the mosque, making it a centre for hardline teaching and open opposition to ...

Thursday 5th June 2014 NEWS • Some PF members in Kasama district of Northern province have backed calls for President Michael Sata to fire Wynter Kabimba. The PF members who stormed Radio Mano this morning have also urged President Micheal Sata to relieve Mr Kabimba of his ministerial and party duties. Nathan ILunga who led the group which mainly comprised of youths alleged that Mr Kabimba is contributing to the divisions in the ruling party.

June 5th. The 70th Anniversary of D Day minus one. On this afternoon, 70 years ago, top secret orders were flown into Duxford for Brigadier General Murray Woodbury, commander of the 66th Fighter Wing based in Sawston Hall, approximately 4 miles away from Station 357, Duxford... Rumours of the imminent invasion were about to become true. Security was heightened on base, with nobody being allowed to enter or leave. Betty's Tearoom was closed in the evening for the only time during the war, re-opening the next day. After dinner on the 5th, there was a maximum effort, including admin staff, painting the black and white invasion stripes on the wings and fuselages of the 78th's P-47s. Armourers, mechanics, radiomen and other enlisted crews would work well into the night preparing the aircraft for the forthcoming missions. Crew chiefs were issued a Thompson machine gun and a .45 calibre pistol. Red Cross workers were busy making piles of sandwiches and gallons of coffee... There was no doubt about it now. D Day ...
Court-martials 10 Generals, 5 Others For Helping Boko Haram .This was made known on Monday by a high ranking military source who pleaded anonymity because he was not obligated to disclose detailed information about the development. It was gathered that the Army and the Defence headquarters had alleged that some of their officers and men were giving vital official information to Boko Haram members. The allegation, however, brought about the arrest and arraignment of some officers who were court-martial in the army divisions in the northern part of the country. According to the source, some of the apprehended officers and men were being tried at their various division levels, adding that they still have a lot of hope until the final review of their judgment at the army headquarters in Abuja. "There are a lot of arrests that have been made over some officers who were sabotaging the ongoing counter-insurgency operations. The suspects include about 10 generals and other ranks, not to talk of soldiers who have ...

On June 5, 1944, seventy years ago today, the Allied Commanders met in the early hours of the morning to discuss Operation OVERLORD. This was one meeting in a long series regarding the execution of the invasion of Normandy, and featured great concern over “chancey” weather conditions. The document pictured here is page 2 of the original copy of the memorandum of record detailing the final Commanders’ Meetings, which occurred on June 4, 1944 at 9:30 PM and again on June 5, 1944 at 4:15am. Discussions of the plan ensued until “a decision was confirmed to go ahead with D day on Y plus 5.” Signed by Major General H. R. Bull, the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-3 (Operations), this document captured the final decision for Operation OVERLORD. Recently discovered in the USAHEC's collection as part of Brigadier General (Retired) Arthur S. Nevins’ materials, the USAHEC looks forward to organizing and processing the documents in this collection to make them available!
The Gallant Dead: Union & Confederate Generals Killed in the Civil War by Derek Smith During the American Civil War, more than 400 Confederate and nearly 600 Union soldiers held the rank of general. Of them, more than one in ten were killed, an astounding 123 in all -- 78 for the South and 45 for the North. Sometimes their lives bought victory, but more often, especially in the case of the Confederates, their blood was spilled in defeat. Indeed, for Southern commanders, the battlefield proved particularly deadly -- and devastating to their cause. Besides full general Albert Sidney Johnston, who met his end at Shiloh, Lee's trusted lieutenant Stonewall Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men at Chancellorsville, flamboyant cavalryman Jeb Stuart was killed in 1864, and A.P. Hill perished two weeks before the war's end. Though with less consequence for the North's war effort, notable Federal generals were slain as well, like John Reynolds, whose death is memorialized in the movie Gettysburg, and James B ...

Brigadier General Abd al Lateef Salman, the commander of operational units in southern Aleppo killed by rebels
1. He was the model of a 19th century cavalry officer - tall, dashing, impeccably uniformed and always handsomely mounted. John Hunt Morgan was a Kentucky gentleman with a flair for the daring. He raised his own company of troops on the eve of war, and they followed him into Confederate service in 1861. An expert leader and a superb cavalry officer, he experienced a meteoric rise in rank from captain to brigadier general. His bold raids behind enemy lines in Tennessee and Kentucky - and into the Northern heartland of Ohio and Indiana - disrupted Federal operations, reinforced Confederate defenses and heartened the people of the embattled South. Once, as Morgan brazenly led his horse soldiers on a raid through Federally-occupied Kentucky, President Lincoln was moved to declare in frustration: "They are having a stampede in Kentucky." Morgan launched his reputation as a dashing Confederate cavalier with a series of raids through Kentucky's Green River country in the winter of 1861-1862. Targeting the impor ...

June 4-7, 1864 | Skirmishes throughout the Lost Mountain After the *** Hole fighting (New Hope Church, Pickett’s Mill, Dallas) of late May 1864, Federal cavalry regained access to the Western & Atlantic Railroad below Allatoona Pass. Consequently, Federal commander Major General William T. Sherman set up camp there and shifted his forces northeast to resume an advance along the railroad. As Sherman pulled his troops out of Paulding County, Confederate Commander General Joseph E. Johnston withdrew his army to central Cobb County, again blocking the railroad and the main roads leading towards Atlanta. From 4 June to 18 June 1864, the Confederates occupied a 10-mile long line from Lost Mountain to Brushy Mountain. From 4 June to 15 June, they also occupied an advance position on Pine Mountain. The Pine Mountain position was abandoned in the wake of an inspection by the Confederate high command on 14 June. During this inspection, Lieutenant General Leonidas Polk was killed by Federal artillery fire. After . ...

For the past months I have been on a hiatus from my Rants due to almost everything that is happening throughout this world of ours is merging on the side of the ridiculous. Thank God we have Kim Kardashian. Let not forget our past and also we must acknowledge that whoever wins writes the history. It was in the mid-forties when the U.S. powers to be agreed to execute only one soldier, Pfc. Eddie Slovik for cowardice when thousands more were punished with lesser sentences. The history of this execution was recorded by those in charge using their own slant to insure their images would not be tarnished. We all know the story of Sen. John McCain’s time as a POW. But! Do you remember how and why he was released with other POWs in 1973. It came about during the Paris Peace Accord when the U.S.A. agreed to withdraw from Viet Nam which would allow the prisoners to be released. Over 60,000 Americans died in that conflict and to get the POWs freed, we agreed to a surrender for the freedom of our POWs. ...

Main article: Intentona de Yauco The second and last major revolt against Spanish colonial rule in Puerto Rico, by Puerto Rico's pro-independence movement, known as the Intentona de Yauco a.k.a. the "Attempted Coup of Yauco", was staged in Yauco. The revolt, which occurred on of March 26, 1897, was organized by Antonio Mattei Lluberas, Mateo Mercado and Fidel Vélez and was backed up by leaders of "El Grito de Lares", the first major independence attempt, who were in exile in New York City as members of the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee. It was during this uprising that Fidel Velz unfurled the current flag of Puerto Rico on Puerto Rican soil for the first time. Rumors of the planned event spread to the local Spanish authorities who acted swiftly and put an end to what would be the last major uprising in the island to Spanish colonial rule.In 1898, upon the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Guánica was a small barrio within the jurisdiction of the town of Yauco. It had 60 houses in all and its ...

Fran is the first female BGen in the Communications and Electronics Branch of the Canadian Forces. Fran, I am so proud to call you my friend! Well done and well deserved.
I know that Memorial Day is over, but I feel that as a country we tend to only think of our fallen soldiers, our veterans, and our active duty personnel only twice a year. I THINK THIS IS WRONG! I am a patriot, redneck country guy that comes from a long line of soldiers in my family. I have ancestors that fought in the Civil War and was friends with General Robert E. Lee. I have a grandfather that drove a Brigadier General. There are others that were in Korea and 'Nam and ones that served and are serving during times of peace or in non-combat areas. I am proud of them and of my friends that have served! I THINK WE SHOULD REMEMBER THEM EVERYDAY BECAUSE IF IT WASN'T FOR THEM WE WOULD BE NAZIS, RUSSIAN, OR RAN BY SOME OTHER TERRORIST COUNTRY! So to end my rant today, I would like to say, "THANK YOU!" again to all those who have served, are serving, or will be serving! It is because of your brave sacrifice we still have a Constitution! THANKS AGAIN!

After being shamed about Gable and Brand, I looked up to see which COWBOY actors served in WWII. Eli Wallach, James Whitmore, Sean Connery, Lorne Green, William Holden, Brian Keith, George Kennedy, Burt Lancaster, John Agar, Gene Autry,Richard Boone, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson, Jeff Chandler, and Kirk Douglas. Henry Fonda awarded Bronze Star, Glen Ford also served in Navy Reserves in Korea and Viet Nam, Lee Marvin was wounded at Saipan, Jack Palance had facial reconstruction after the B17 crashed, Tyrone Power was a fighter pilot in the Pacific, Jason Robards was a radioman at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7. Hitler offered a reward for the capture of Gable! Stewart joined before Pearl Harbor and mustered out a Brigadier General! Audrey Hepburn, as a child in Hollland, was a courier for resistance fighters! I'm sure there are others.
I want to deeply appreciate all the executive members, schoolmates, friends and family members who turned up during my investiture ceremony. Am short of words to really express my feelings for the award given to me by the Old Students Assoc. Like every career, the military has its peculiarities, really the road has been very tough, but with the prayers of everyone of you and God's faithfulness, I have been privileged to rise to the rank of a Brigadier General in the Nigerian Army. The time is very difficult for those of us in the military for obvious reasons. I will invite all of you for a thanksgiving at the most auspicious time. My prayer is that all of us will continue to scale new heights in our various endeavours. Remain blessed.

April 17-20, 1864 - Battle of Plymouth, North Carolina In the midst of the Civil War, the Confederate army succeeded capturing the county seat of Washington County in April of 1864. Referred to as “the most effective Confederate combined-arms operation of the Civil War” by historian William S. Powell, the Battle of Plymouth was the result of both Brigadier General Robert F. Hoke’s infantry division and the naval support of the Confederate ironclads, the Albermarle and the Neuse. The Union army had set up their eastern headquarters of North Carolina in Plymouth and the town of New Bern in 1862, and the North led several offenses from their bases in these towns. Plymouth was strategically located close to the Roanoke River, making naval warfare a necessity to capture the town. In hopes to regain a stronghold in Carolina’s waterways, the Confederacy conspired to build two ships, the Albermarle and Neuse, in 1862. Once the two naval vessels were completed, General Hoke developed a plan to attack Union ...
