The Children’s BBC’s Horrible Histories was criticized for inaccurately portraying Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale racially discriminating fellow nurse, Jamaican-born Mary Seacole, in one of its short clips. An episode of Horrible Histories, a comedy program aimed at showing the shady, appalling and at times scatological side of history, showed Nightingale reject the application made by Mary Seacole for her nursing corps four times because she was from Jamaica and the unit was just “for British girls”. The said sketch was originally part of the Vile Victorians series showed way back in 2010 and was then featured in BBC’s website, Learning Zone. The particular piece showed a fictional Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole visit a whimsical PR consultant to talk about their respective images. The sketch further went on to show the two actresses discuss how Nightingale went down ...

May 25, 2014 Zephaniah 3:17 "The LORD your God is with you. He is a hero who saves you. He happily rejoices over you, renews you with His love and celebrates over you with shouts of joy." History is loaded with heroes and heroines. Florence Nightingale was honored for revolutionizing nursing care during the Crimean War. Rosa Parks was respected for refusing to sit at the back of the bus at the beginnings of the Civil Rights movement and Marie Curie admired for the discovery of radium and polonium. Or maybe your hero is the nurse in the ER who stayed with you through a difficult time. Heroes often reflect similar traits: courage, determination, a desire for justice. That is why children love to pretend to be heroes. One compound word, however, sums up a hero's mandatory trait: self-sacrifice! They often face health problems, incarceration, life-threatening situations, or death for their causes. How does God fit into the above description of heroes? That is easy. He gave His son Jesus to save ...

And what about young Malala Yousafzi who at the age of just 16 has fought passionately for the rights of young girls and women to be educated in the Swat District of Pakistan and for which she was the victim of an assassination attempt.

As President Vladimir Putin mobilises soldiers on Russia's Ukrainian border and NATO threatens consequences for any interference in eastern Ukraine, the atmosphere of angry rhetoric and brinkmanship seems frighteningly similar to the imperial squabbles of the 19th century that led to the Crimean War. While often thought of as a minor war, nearly 600,000 soldiers died between 1853 and 1856 in the Crimean War; a largely inconclusive conflict that few of them understood. The memoirs of William Howard Russell, a war correspondent who witnessed the Crimean War, were recently translated into Russian and published by Lenizdat, allowing Russians to refresh their collective memory on the war and see events through the eyes of a former enemy. Indeed, a read of Russell's memoirs offers many lessons for the modern reader. As soldiers mobilize near Ukraine, the 19th-century Crimean War seems less and less like ancient history. Any reader of the book will quickly recognize the similar circumstances between the Crimean ...
Last week’s theatrical crisis in Ukraine has quickly transformed itself into a restaging of the Crimean War of 1853-56, when Russia fought the Ottoman Empire and its European allies over control of the strategic peninsula that juts into the Black Sea. Only this time, light operatic moments are popping up in the repeat performance, as Washington has joined London and NATO to castigate Russia with pointed words but no hint of bayonets. “Russia has engaged in a military act of aggression against another country,” Secretary of State John Kerry declared. “The sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine has been violated,” UK Foreign Minister William Hague said. “I have convened the North Atlantic Council today because of Russia’s military action in Ukraine,” NATO Secretary General Fogh Rasmussen said, “and because of President (Vladimir) Putin’s threat against this sovereign nation.” These ominous words followed Russia’s decision to secure its Black Sea fleet at Sevastopol and ...
Wing Commander Guy Penrose Gibson, DSO and Bar, DFC and Bar, was awarded the Victoria Cross by His Majesty King George VI at a ceremony at RAF Scampton. Wing Commander Gibson received the meal for his leadership of No. 617 Squadron, The Dambusters, during Operation Chastise, the attack on Germany’s Ruhr Valley hydroelectric dams, 16–17 May 1943. The Victoria Cross ranks with the George Cross as the United Kingdom’s highest award for gallantry. The first British medal to be created for bravery, the Victoria Cross was instituted in 1856, with the first recipients being personnel honoured for their gallantry during the Crimean War. The bronze Cross, which bears the inscription “For Valour”, is cast from the metal of Russian guns captured at Sevastopol during the Crimean campaign. It is awarded “for most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.” r/max
Battlefield Balaklava celebrates 70th anniversary of liberation from Nazis: This secluded harbor has been a favored haunt of mariners since at least the time of the ancient Greeks, and it has witnessed countless battles between those vying to possess it. The Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War is well known for the Thin Red Line action by Scotland's Sutherland Highlanders red-coated 93rd Regiment against the Russian cavalry on 25 October 1854. During World War II there were two bloody encounters at the location: first when the Soviet troops defended and lost it in 1941-1942, and then when the Soviet troops returned to drive the Nazis out of the Crimea in April 1944. The battle for the city of Sevastopol started even before the Germans crossed the border with the Soviet Union, as German planes bombed the city at 3:15 in the morning of June 22, 1941. By October German troops were in Crimea. The Siege of Sevastopol lasted for 250 days, with Balaklava becoming a crucial point of defense of the city. Du ...

From: Women's History Also known as: Lady with the Lamp; Flo Florence Nightingale Biography: Born to a comfortable family, Florence Nightingale was educated by governesses and then by her father, with her older sister, Parthenope. She was familiar with the Greek and Latin classical languages, and modern languages of French, German, and Italian. She also studied history, grammar, and philosophy. At twenty, she overcame parental objections to receive tutoring in mathematics. Called to a Mission in Life: On February 7, 1837, Florence Nightingale heard, by her account, the voice of God telling her that she had a mission in life. It took her some years of searching to identify that mission. This was the first of four occasions where Florence Nightingale said she heard the voice of God. By 1844, over parental objections, Florence Nightingale chose a different path than the social life and marriage expected of her by her parents -- she chose to work in nursing, which was then not quite a respectable prof ...

For those who have read this, a soft reminder; to those who have not, you might enjoy it. (MUSIC) Our story today is called "Luck." It was written by Mark Twain. Here is Shep O’Neal with the story. (MUSIC) SHEP O’NEAL: I was at a dinner in London given in honor of one of the most celebrated English military men of his time. I do not want to tell you his real name and titles. I will just call him Lieutenant General Lord Arthur Scoresby. I cannot describe my excitement when I saw this great and famous man. There he sat, the man himself, in person, all covered with medals. I could not take my eyes off him. He seemed to show the true mark of greatness. His fame had no effect on him. The hundreds of eyes watching him, the worship of so many people did not seem to make any difference to him. Next to me sat a clergyman, who was an old friend of mine. He was not always a clergyman. During the first half of his life he was a teacher in the military school at Woolwich. There was a strange look in his eye as he ...
True Charity When thou doest alms let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth. – Matt 6:3 There are some people who want every good thing they do well advertised. If they give money to some good cause, they want to have it noticed in the papers. If they are kind to the poor or relieve some case of distress, they are particular that the matter should be duly published. They take pains that their charities shall not fail to be credited to themselves. But this is not the kind of spirit our Lord enjoined on His disciples. He told them that seeking publicity marred the beauty of their alms-giving; that instead of announcing to all men what they had done, they should not even let their own left hand know that their right hand had been doing commendable things. Of course Christ did not mean that we should not be good before people, that we should never give alms save where the act would be absolutely secret. It is the motive that Christ was enforcing. His disciples should never give for the sake of me ...

On federalism, Ukraine, rhetoric & accountability: It started with the EU’s ill-conceived attempt at self-landing Ukraine unilaterally into a more positive and sustainable future, presumably, for the common good. I’d like to cite two examples of the softening power of federalism. First, Henry Kissinger in ‘Diplomacy’ (1994) wrote about the lack of political culture of moderation in the militaristic Germany, united by Bismarck as a Greater Prussia. This critical flaw wouldn’t dissipate and would ultimately make Germany want to go to war. Our great poet and thinker Fyodor Tyutchev, who spent 20 years in Munich as a diplomat, wrote in the late 1840s that there was no room in Europe for a united Germany as an empire, only as a federation. History proved him right, but it took two world wars to arrive at the rational solution. It also proves that such issues are of legitimate interest to others. The history of the first German unification bears witness to something else. The Crimean War, unleashed fo ...

Mary Jane Seacole (1805 – 14 May 1881), sometimes known as Mother Seacole or Mary Grant, was a Jamaican nurse best known for her involvement in the Crimean War. She set up and operated boarding houses in Panama and the Crimea to assist in her desire to treat the sick. Seacole was taught herbal remedies and folk medicine by her mother, who kept a boarding house for disabled European soldiers and sailors.

March 28 marks the 160th anniversary of the outbreak of the Crimean War - one of the most important conflicts in the XIX century, defined for decades geopolitical relations on the continent. During the last month the international attention is focused on the Crimean peninsula in the northern Black Sea. Its annexation by Russia in Ukraine after the riots that led to the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych, was read by most politicians and analysts as a gross violation of international law. While the conflict is usually seen as a colossal clash between East and West, the role and importance of the peninsula itself often overlooked. Crimea is one of the key strategic points in Eastern Europe and is often passed from one hand to other . foundations of the conflict are still made in Vienna system of international relations to be established in Europe after the Napoleonic wars. The reason for this is that the Vienna system is based on a delicate balance of forces that includes powerful Ottoman Empire that ...
March 27, 2014 Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile Today just happens to be the 160th anniversary of Britain and France's declaration of war on Russia in what would eventually become known as the Crimean War. Part 1. At the time, Russia was a rising power. By the 1850s, Tsar Nicholas I had expanded Russia's domain into Ukraine and Crimea seeking warm water ports on the Black Sea, and it scared the bejeezus out of the rest of Europe. Other nations in the region-- particularly France and the Ottoman Empire, were in obvious decline. By 1854, the Ottoman Empire was only a few years away from outright default, and France was desperate to regain some of its geopolitical glory from the previous century. All of this should sound familiar. As Mark Twain said, history might not necessarily repeat, but it certainly rhymes. Today there is conflict once again in Crimea. And just as before, it has nothing to do with Crimea, but with several other powers trying to keep a rising power in check. Let's be honest-- most human bein ...

We used to mock the Wealthy Lords who played out the Crimean War in luxury while foot soldiers died in vain; now we have the stupendously wealthy politicians and oligarchs playing diplomatic poker, all with a straight face, while the Ukrainian pawns lose a chunk of Ukraine to Russia. I am sure the response would be different if Russia took back Alaska !!
The plan of Chalyi on how to settle the crisis in Ukraine A renowned Ukrainian diplomat Alexander Chalyi has proposed a plan for coming out of a challenging crisis that unfolded after Russia’s invasion in Crimea.

It's hard to even imagine the price that Crimea, Ukraine, Russia, Europe and the world will pay for such an accident ... We stand on the threshold of the Crimean War. Thank God, guns have been silent so far and therefore diplomats still can and should tall and first of all the Ukrainian ones. We must understand that in these minutes of anxiety it’s not enough to appeal to the countries-guarantors of Ukraine's sovereignty and to the international community to punish the aggressor. This, in fact, is a call for war ... We must urgently suggest a Ukrainian vision of terms of possible peace (settling of the cr ...
On history rhyming: "Russians were told Brits, French fight for the devil & they must avenge st. Vladimir"-Orlando Figes on 1st Crimean War
To my friends who don't know much about Crimea. Crimea is an island-like peninsula in southern Ukraine, extending into the Black Sea. Historically, the antiquity name Tavria, was populated over 4,000 years ago mainly by ancient ukrainians called Skifs (Ukrainian symbolism is much owed to Skifs, including the golden-blue flag). Over 2,000 years ago Romans and Greeks colonized it. Later Crimea and the rest of Ukrainian land was overrun by Ostrogoths, Huns, and Mongols. Mongol Tatars renamed Tavria into Crimea (old turkish language, Krym short of Qirim). Conquered by the Ottoman Turks Empire in 1475, the area was annexed by the new Russian Empire in 1783. The peninsula was the scene of the Crimean War (1853-1856), in which a coalition of English, French, and Turkish troops defeated the Russians, although Crimea itself did not change hands. As a result of the Bolshevik's revolution in Russian Empire in 1917 and creation of Soviet Union in 1922, Ukraine become a Soviet Ukrainian Republic and Crimea became an a ...

"The Charge of the Light Brigade" is a paean to British forces fighting against the Russians in the Crimean War. It's not about Crimean soldiers. Also, it seems that there are certain stories about the Cold War that we easily revisit: Russians against Americans. The upheaval in Ukraine seems like it fits into that narrative. There are others, such as US-funded Latin American death squads terrorizing various countries during the 1980s, that we prefer to ignore or forget. Maybe this is part of why Ukraine gets so much media attention and the recent chaos in Venezuela does not...?
853-1856 Crimean War: military blunders and the birth of war photography. The Ottoman Empire was crumbling then,...
Over the past week, images of troops massing in Crimea have been broadcast to millions around the globe. It so happens that the first ever official war photographs were from the very same region. In 1853, the Russian Empire fought the allied armies of the Ottoman Empire, France and Great Britain in the short but brutal Crimean War that claimed the lives of three quarters of a million soldiers. And for the first time, photographers were able to give people a glimpse of what war was like. Watch the video for the full Last Look:
Many issues are playing out in the geo-political tensions between Russia and Ukraine, and since many people don’t understand the mindset of these two nations, many people are dropping the ball. First, Russians and Ukrainians with Byelorussians form the branch of the Eastern Slavic family. Many are Eastern Orthodox Christian, specifically Russian Orthodox, or Ukrainian Orthodox. They’re joined by smaller numbers of Roman Catholics as well as Eastern Rite Catholics. Many belong to the Ruthenian Catholic Church, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, or the Russian Greek Catholic Church. They’re joined by sizable communities of Jews, Muslims, Atheists, and Agnostics. Since Russia and Ukraine are crossroads nations on the borders of East and West they’ve experienced a number of invasions, and this defines their modern worldview. Russia for example suffered invasions from Mongols, Turks, the British and French during the Crimean War, which is documented in Toltsoy’s “War & Peace," and the Germa ...

There's a lot of history behind the Crimea/Ukraine crisis: SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Drawing on his experiences as a young artillery officer in imperial Russia’s military during the 1853-56 Crimean War, Leo Tolstoy described in “Sevastopol Sketches” how a wounded Russian soldier whose leg had been amputated above the knee coped with agonizing pain. “The chief thing, your honor, is not to think,” Tolstoy’s amputee remarked, “If you don’t think, it is nothing much. It mostly all comes from thinking.” It is advice, however, that virtually nobody in Crimea, particularly not here in Sevastopol, shows any sign of heeding. With nearly every other street named after a Russian general or a gruesome battle, its lovely seafront promenade dominated by a “monument to sunken ships” and its central square named after the imperial admiral who commanded Russian forces against French, British and Turkish troops in the 19th century, Sevastopol constantly feeds thoughts of war and its agonies. Bombarded w ...

"TENACITY, ENDURANCE, COURAGE, COMMITMENT" in all she did. These are the words used by Celia Grandison-Markey, President of The Nurses Association of Jamaica (UK) to describe our Caribbean Woman of the Day, Mary Seacole. Using her much of her own money and driven by the concern she had for native Jamaican men fighting in the Crimean War, Mary Seacole took her healing talent (which included what she called "the arts of Creole medicine as handed down to her by her Jamaican mother), throughout the world, practicing her healing talents, often in the heat of the battlefield. No wonder she was voted THE Greatest Black Briton. Today, many of her known herbal treatments (such as a tea made of cinnamon bark) are validated by medical science and central to the holistic and integrative nutrition movements.

Crimean War of 1854: Russia seeks warm water port and invades. Western powers save the day. Sound familiar?
Things You Should Know About Russia's Incursion Into Crimea... 1. What Is Crimea? Crimea is a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine, which means that while it is part of Ukraine’s sovereign territory, it is largely self governed. A beautiful place located on the Black Sea, with rugged mountains leading to sandy beaches, Crimea is a popular tourist destination. It is also a tricky place politically. In 1954 Khrushchev decreed that it become part of Ukraine, a move that many in Russia still see as illegitimate. Just over half of the population are ethnic Russians, a quarter are ethnic Ukrainians and most of the remainder are Crimean Tatars who, having been deported by Stalin in 1944, are fiercely anti-Russian. In 1992, after the collapse of the Soviet Unions, Crimea decided to join the newly independent country of Ukraine. 2. Why Russia Wants It Crimea looms large in Russian history. It was the site of the Crimean War fought in the 1850’s against the French, British and Ottoman Empire . Although Russia lost ...

William Hague in Kiev, doubtless giving more of our money away. No Russian government of any political persuasion could watch its Black Sea naval base being taken over by NATO. Someone should tell Hague about the Crimean War of 1854/5 when Britain and France last tried to capture Sevastopol from, er, the Russians - not the Ukranians. Tens of thousands of dead on both sides.
Since we've already had 2 world wars, 2 gulf wars, 2 Afghanistan wars, I guess we're due for Crimean War
A little history lesson about Ukraine and Crimea may help put recent developments into better perspective. What emerges is a very clear understanding of why both Russia and Ukraine feel that they each have historical precedent to support their positions: Russia believes Ukraine is part of Russia, while Ukraine (or at least parts of Ukraine) believes it to be independent with a brighter future in Europe. Both can lay claim to Crimea. Given such a long and convoluted history, one should not expect a quick and easy solution to tensions in that region. The Crimean peninsula has been the center of many past conflicts, repeatedly colonized and occupied over the centuries. The Russian Empire annexed Crimea in 1783, after numerous wars with the Ottoman Empire. The Crimean War of 1853-56 (which some historians regard as the first truly world war) saw France, Britain, and the Ottomans pitted against Russia. While most of the fighting was on the peninsula, the Crimean War was an attempt to push back against perceiv ...

Far up in the frozen north, across the heaving Atlantic from ice-bound Labrador, subject to the long Arctic twilight and lighted by the rays of the polar star, sit the giant, heather-clad mountains of the Lion of the North. Around their never-changing buttresses mists gather, storms break and snows beat, and out of those mists, storms and snows, has come a race of people to whom the civilized world owes much.In the Crimean War the Russians said, "The Scottish were bad enough but their Wives were devils"; and Napoleon, after Waterloo, declared, "If they had only kept those-women devils at home I could have won the battle." Hail to our beautiful and fearless Clanswomen.!

THIS DAY IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY: February 23 Looking back on the history of Christianity and the Church, we notice that it is sometimes violent, sometimes inspiring, shocking, tragic, comic, or just plain bizarre. It is certainly never dull. Our Christian heritage was passed down to us through blood, sweat and tears, but mostly by the faith of our fathers. The church age as we know it is coming to an end very soon. Be very blessed and informed as you read these brief notations on the successes and failures of Christianity throughout the ages. February 23, 155 (traditional date): Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna, is martyred. Reportedly a disciple of the Apostle John, at age 86 he was taken to be burned at the stake for refusing to deny the Christian faith. "You try to frighten me with fire that burns for an hour and forget the fire of *** that never burns out," he said. The flames, legend says, would not touch him, and when he was run through with a sword, his blood put the fire out. February 23, 303: Diocl . ...

Am fascinated with events in Ukraine. Can you believe it; common people rising up and throwing out a tyrant? This area is steeped in history. The Crimean War, fought just before our Civil War occurred in Ukraine. Chernobyl is only 60 some miles North of its capital city, Kiev. The Dnieper river divides the country from the East and the West and flows into the Black Sea. Oh, wouldn't the Russians like to take back this territory and claim Odesa as their Black Sea port.

Paul Harvey's SON wrote the rest of the story stories.. POIGNANT READ Thirty-seven years young - too young to be dying - and yet the symptoms of terminal heart disease were unmistakable. She told friends that her life now "hung by a thread, which might snap at any moment." And she went to bed. And waited to die. And did not. Instead, she became an invalid, a fearful captive of the fatal symptoms that strangely refused to kill her. So many symptoms! - with but one source: psychoneurosis. It was all in her mind. From the age of seventeen to thirty-three, this daughter of wealthy parents suffered acute hypochondria - always living in dread of sickness, always fearing death was a heartbeat away. Then suddenly her health took a turn for the better. At age thirty-three she finally left home, got her own place to live, and discovered purpose, drive, and energy to achieve. This bliss lasted for three years. For three years she was a woman of responsibility and boundless energy whose only aches and pains were legi ...
Hvalevskoe manor is located in Vologda oblast, in the region often referred to as the "Russian North" (Русский Север). Historically, this area was part of Novgorod lands. Curiously, the house is located on the meridian passing through the Solovetsky monastery and the parallel passing through the centre of St.Petersburg. This modest manor house was built in 1854-1856 (during the Crimean war) as the main residence for the noble Russian Kachaloff family. Nikolay A. Kachaloff was Head of Customs of the Russian Empire, Governor of Archangelsk gubernija (region) and trusted ally of tsar Alexander III. Among the Kachaloff family children, who grew up at Hvalevskoe, were several prominent members of the Russian society, including Vladimir Kachaloff (builder of Livadia Palace in Crimea and the Massandra Wine Cellars), Nikolay N. Kachaloff Sr. (Governor of Archangelsk, Founder and First Director of the Electrotechnical Institute - where radio was invented by Popoff), Nikolay N. Kachaloff Jr. (Member of ...

Watching a news report on Ukraine which brings a flood of thoughts. My first impression is not to be surprised. Empires are missed once they are lost, especially if an egomaniac wants to re-establish the empire. We have a present day Justinian, without a beautiful Theodora at his side, who heads Russia and is convinced the West (defined as the US, Britain and France) will do nothing but give lip service objecting to power grabs in the "near abroad". Can we spell "hegemony"? He feels invincible and unopposed, especially after the military invasion of Georgia in 2008, and he is correct. The West has not interfered militarily against Russian national interests in Eastern Europe since the Crimean War in the mid 19th century. We turned our backs when the Berlin Wall was built when kicking over one brick would have stopped it, follow that with Hungary in 1956, Prague in 1968 and a thousand other atrocities committed over 50 years after WW2. We will continue to turn out backs. If I lived in Finland, Eston ...
Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte (20 April 1808 – 9 January 1873) was the first President of the French Republic and, as Napoleon III, the ruler of the Second French Empire. He was the nephew and heir of Napoleon I. He was the first President of France to be elected by a direct popular vote. However, in 1852, when he was blocked by the Constitution and Parliament from running for a second term, he organized a coup d'état in 1851, and then took the throne as Napoleon III on 2 December 1852, the forty-eighth anniversary of Napoleon I's coronation. During the first years of the Empire, his government imposed censorship and harsh repressive measures against his opponents. Some six thousand persons were imprisoned or sent to penal colonies Cayenne or Algeria until they were amnestied in 1859. Thousands more, including Victor Hugo, went into voluntary exile abroad.[1] Beginning in 1862, Napoleon loosened the censorship and lifted many of the repressive measures, and gave the legislature more power, in what was know ...

London The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace Book tickets Who built the Palace? Joseph Nash, The east front of Buckingham Palace from St James Park, 1846 Origins The history of the site where Buckingham Palace now stands can be traced back to the reign of James I (r.1603-25), who established under royal patronage a plantation of mulberries for the rearing of silkworms in what is now the Buckingham Palace garden. It is clear that when Charles I (r.1625-49) granted the garden to Lord Aston in 1628, a substantial house already existed on the site. The house had a succession of owners and tenants until, in 1698, it was let to the man who was to give the house its name–John Sheffield, later the Duke of Buckingham. Finding the house very dated in appearance, the Duke demolished the building to create the new ‘Buckingham House’. The house stood exactly on the site occupied by Buckingham Palace today. It was designed and built with the assistance of William Talman, Comptroller of the Works to William III, and ...
Australian Colonial artist, Isaac Walter Jenner 1836 - 1902. Isaac Walter Jenner (1837-1902), artist, was born on 18 March 1837 at Brighton, Sussex, England, son of Thomas Jenner, blacksmith, and his wife Harriet, née Walter. Without known formal education, he worked on oyster and crab smacks and signed on for a voyage in Arctic waters. In March 1855 he joined the Royal Navy, serving during the Crimean War in the Black Sea and in H.M.S. Retribution at the Dardanelles. In 1864 he was present at the bombardment of Shimonoseki, Japan. Discharged in 1865, he learned to paint and worked as a landscape and marine painter in 1873-79 at Brighton and at Hove in 1880-83; he exhibited at Brighton, Lewes and once at the Royal Academy. After trouble with picture dealers, he decided to migrate and reached Brisbane by R.M.S. Roma on 19 September 1883. Jenner made a living by selling paintings, holding art unions and teaching at Miss O'Connor's School, Oxley, and at the Brisbane Technical College in 1887-89. Although he ...

Taken from Malvern Beacon Darwin and his daughter Annie Charles Darwin first visited Malvern in 1849, at the age of 39, to undergo hydrotherapy at Dr James Gully's "hydopathy clinic". This was in an attempt to improve his ill health that was probably brought on by stress and overworking. Although it was ten years before he published his famous book 'On the Origin of Species', he was already established as a naturalist and geologist by this time, having sailed on the HMS Beagle from 1831 to 1836 and been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1839. Ironically for someone who formulated the theory of evolution and natural selection, Darwin married his cousin Emma Wedgwood, and worried whenever his children were ill that this might be as a result of inbreeding or them having inherited his poor health. Sadly, one of his children Annie died at the age of ten due to ill health and complications, and she is buried in the churchyard of the Great Malvern Priory; having also been visiting the town to seek a cur . ...
Sinop Turkey (Black Sea area) by Sensei Jörgen Lindberg Sinop (Greek: Σινώπη, Sinōpē) is a city with a population of 36,734 on İnce Burun (İnceburun, Cape Ince), by its Cape Sinop (Sinop Burnu, Boztepe Cape, Boztepe Burnu) which is situated on the most northern edge of the Turkish side of the Black Sea coast, in the ancient region of Paphlagonia, in modern-day northern Turkey, historically known as Sinope . It is the capital of SinopProvince. Long used as a Hittite port which appears in Hittite sources as "Sinuwa" (J. Garstang, The Hittite Empire, p. 74), the city proper was re-founded as a Greek colony from the city of Miletus in the 7th century BC (Xenophon, Anabasis 6.1.15; Diodorus Siculus 14.31.2; Strabo 12.545). Sinope flourished as the Black Sea port of a caravan route that led from the upper Euphrates valley (Herodotus 1.72; 2.34), issued its own coinage, founded colonies, and gave its name to a red arsenic sulfate mined in Cappadocia, called "Sinopic red earth" (Miltos Sinôpikê) or s ...

Just watched a 1968 movie titled like the below poem. It was always one of my favorites but the truth behind the poem was incredibly shocking. The class warfare within the British units was as fierce as the actual battle of the Crimean war. The ineptitude of the ranking officers was unbelievably portrayed in the movie. And rewarding the POGs for the decimation of their troops made my stomach hurt. As a warrior I stand ready to do battle to protect my family, friends and country from enemies within and without. But I never pledged to disengage my brain. War IS *** and should be fought only to protect the aforementioned people. Ideally lets put all the leaders on a battlefield and let them find out first hand what it means to battle fir ones ideals. That is all. Enjoy the poem and remember.

In the question below, there are four statements A, B, C and D that have to be arranged in a logical order to make a paragraph between statements 1 and 6. 1. The development of railways broke down the isolation of the village, made the world market available to the Indian producer, facilitated both foreign and domestic trade and created the necessary condition for the growth of large-scale factory industry. A. Jute industry started after the Crimean War had interrupted the supply of hemp and flax from Russia, at first in competition with the Dundee mill-owners who protected vigorously against allowing the growth of manufacturing industry in a colony suitable only for commercial exploitation. B. It was no coincidence that this was followed in the later decades of the century by the establishment and quick growth of jute, cotton textile and coal-mining industries, and also of new forms of business organisations in the shape of joint-stock companies and managing agencies. C. But the natural advantage offered ...
Did y'all know this: Every Victoria Cross ever awarded has been made from the metal taken from a Russian cannon captured during the Crimean War. The VC came to be because of a journalist who saw ordinary soldiers perform acts of extraordinary bravery, and who felt there ought to be a medal to give recognition to them. Prince Albert loved the idea, and wished for a simple cross. He decided on the name: the Victoria Cross. ...and, as I say, the bronze which has been used to make all 1357 VCs so far awarded, has come from the cannon the British captured during the Crimean. That, in my opinion, is a very cool piece of history trivia. You're welcome.

This teacher not only taught her students the planned lesson under difficult circumstances, she taught them another, probably more important, lesson about determination and dedication: Woman Taught History Class While Stuck on Turnpike Friday's massive pileup on the Pennsylvania Turnpike created a traffic nightmare, sending drivers to the hospital while leaving others stranded for hours. One of those stranded drivers was Lynn McNulty, a teacher at the Hun School of Princeton. Despite her situation, the determined teacher refused to let one of the worst highway accidents in recent memory stop her from teaching her AP European History class. While sitting at a standstill at the Willow Grove exit, she managed to conduct her planned lesson using FaceTime. She quickly posted a message through the school’s communication system instructing her students to contact her through video chat when they got in to class. McNulty explained to that all freshman and sophom ...
Con's over. Darius' and my animation panel went well despite my lack of sleep or food. Looking forward to next year when I will manage my time better and not cancel the Crimean War.
Now I know where The Trooper takes inspiration from after watching that Top Gear segment on where the crimean war was fought.
The 'Swan Inn' (possibly originally known as The White Swan as per the 1875 - 87 map) was opened in 1861 by Mr George John Swann. Mr Swann had previously been the manager at the Queen's Hotel. In 1857 the German Legion were camped on the Queen's Parade, opposite the Hotel, following the Legion's return from the Crimean War. Mr Swann provided all the catering for this legion and with the profits he made decided to build his own Inn on the Farnborough Road where it still stands today. With many thanks to Darren Taylor for the information.
The Crimean War (1853-56) is important because it was truly the crucible in which modern Russian nationalism was forged. The idealized, romantic nationalism that swept across Europe after the Napoleonic Wars (1798-1815) was felt just as keenly in Russia, even in the land of Tsarist autocracy, as elsewhere. It was during the Crimean War that the two particular strains of nationalist sentiment fused together providing, as the century progressed, the impetus for both an aggressive, expansionist policy abroad and, ultimately, revolution at home and leaving in its wake the landscape of our modern world. By the early 1850s Pan-Slavism, or the idea that Russia, as the largest and greatest Slavic state bore a responsibility to protect and liberate the other Slavic peoples on the continent, then toiling under Turkish rule in the Ottoman Empire or under Habsburg domination in the Austrian lands, had gained support among the influential, educated classes in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. This required fostering the .. ...
This Brotherhood cartel controls every aspect of the global economic network, the banks, insurance companies, raw materials, transportation, factories, finished products, major retail groups (and by market rigging all the rest), the stock and material markets, governments, media, intelligence agencies and so on. This is coordinated through the secret societies and one of their most important vehicles is the City of London-House of Windsor operation called the Club of the Isles. It was named after King Edward VII, Queen Victoria’s son, who was the first to carry the title Prince of the Isles. The title is held today by Prince Charles. Edward was heavily involved with Black Nobility barons of the Square Mile London financial district and helped them to engineer the Crimean War, the Russia-Japan War, the preparations for the First World War and the Opium Wars with China. Through the central organization of the Club of the Isles comes the fantastic web of interlocking directorships which hold apparently ind ...

Debby Grindy my lady of the lamp. She does have the face of someone who has been through the Crimean war
Today, I continue my inventory of the various figures I have received during these last days , stopping for a moment on one of the Crimean War series . It is , as I have already explained, a war between France during the Second Empire , combined with England's Victorian period , and against Tsarist Russia . This war was intended to prevent Russia to have an opening on the Mediteranean Sea through the territory of Crimea and threaten the interests of France and England on the mediterranean basin and the nations under the supervision of the latter. In any case, France and England eventually bend Russia after many battles , and redefine alliances in this part of Europe extreme East . Anyway, regarding my figures for this period , the one I received recently is one of those that we see the rightmost image , the last of this series, I will command next month , pending unpublished be edited ...

Well fancy that ! ! : The Victoria Cross (VC) is the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" to members of the armed forces of various Commonwealth countries, and previous British Empire territories. It takes precedence over all other orders, decorations and medals. It may be awarded to a person of any rank in any service and to civilians under military command. The VC is usually presented to the recipient or to their next of kin by the British monarch at an investiture held at Buckingham Palace. The VC was introduced on 29 January 1856 by Queen Victoria to honour acts of valour during the Crimean War. Since then, the medal has been awarded 1,357 times to 1,354 individual recipients. Only 14 medals, ten to members of the British Army, and four to the Australian Army, have been awarded since the Second World War. The traditional explanation of the source of the gunmetal from which the medals are struck is that it derives from Russian cannon captured at the Siege of Sevasto ...

Possible controversy - especially this part. "The Blockade of Africa is a strong, even if asymmetric, competitor to the Crimean War for the last great naval campaign of the age of sail, and the first of the age of steam." Context: "The Blockade of Africa, as understood within the in the institutional understanding of the Royal Navy, maps roughly onto contemporary understandings about symmetric vs. asymmetric warfare. The campaign was a frustrating affair, with officers running legal risks in the execution of their duties and watching their quarry escape on technicalities. The campaign was poorly understood on the domestic front; the combatants themselves were equally poorly understood. Africa Station was one of the most dangerous postings in the Navy, but these losses were suffered almost entirely through disease rather than through direct combat. Battle lines and allegiances were never particularly clear, and adversaries could mutate structures and seemingly endlessly replace losses. This led to confused ...

ON THIS DAY 19th December 1852: Lord Aberdeen forms a coalition government of Whigs, Peelites and Radicals. The government consisted of the groups who had voted against Lord Derby's Conservative government. The cabinet was composed of six Peelites, six Whigs and one Radical. On paper the ministry was a strong one and included Gladstone, Palmerston, Russell, Lord Granville and Sir James Graham; however it was never the sum of its parts. Russell resigned as Foreign Secretary after barely two months in office and the government allowed itself to drift into the Crimean War which destroyed the government and left Aberdeen's reputation in tatters. Perhaps the most significant legacy of the Aberdeen Ministry was that it brought together for the first time all the elements that were to form the Liberal Party eight years later.
