Located 40 miles north of Memphis, Fort Pillow, with its 300-foot bluffs, was a strategic point to control traffic flow on the Mississippi River. In 1864, the fort named after Gideon Pillow was the location of an alleged massacre of black soldiers by Nathan Bedford Forrest.
A lesson in what we here call home!! Southern Illinois (also known as "Little Egypt" or "Egypt") is the southern third of the state of Illinois. With the area code 618, the southern part of Illinois is geographically, culturally, and economically distinct from the rest of the state. The region is bordered on three of four sides by the most voluminous rivers in the United States: the Wabash and Ohio rivers to the east and south, and the Mississippi River and its connecting Missouri River to the west. Southern Illinois' most populated city is currently Belleville at 44,478. Other principal cities include Alton, Collinsville, Edwardsville, Mt. Vernon, Marion, and Carbondale, where the main campus of Southern Illinois University is located. The area has a population of 1.2 million people,[1] who live mostly in rural towns and cities separated by extensive farmland and the Shawnee National Forest. The two most dense areas of population are Metro-East, which is the partly industrialized Illinois portion of the ...
For most U.S. states east of the Mississippi River, tonight's total will likely turn out to be a total bust, while in contrast, much of the central and western United States will likely get a fine view of the "in all its brilliance. The first total of 2014 occurs in the overnight hours tonight and will be visible across most of North America, South America, Hawaii and parts of Alaska. Depending on your location, it begins either late tonight or in the wee hours of Tuesday, but as with every skywatching event, you can only see it if Mother Nature cooperates. Tonight's lunar eclipse runs from 12:53 a.m. EDT (0453 GMT) to about 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT). For us that's 9:53 til about 3am (the latter being well past my bedtime). Apart from central and south Florida the weather on the East Coast appears to be the usual - so clouds will most likely prohibit viewing. By the way - if you're in Northwest Ohio and Michigan you'll probably get snow (jus' sayin'!). Lunar eclipses occur when the moon is in the full moon st ...
Five rapids covering a distance of about three miles in this area were referred to as Nekoosa (swift water) by the Chippewa Indians, who made their campground on high Swallow Rock overlooking the rapids. Wakeley's tavern served as a rendezvous and resting place for the river traveler and lumber raftsman. Wakeley's was the nucleus for the development of a settlement named Point Basse (low point). The name was later changed to Nekoosa. The settlement became a key town during the colorful era when lumber was rafted down the river from the pineries of the North to Mississippi River markets. Daniel Whitney built the first sawmill on the Wisconsin River here at Whitney's Rapids in 1831 making Nekoosa the birthplace of Wood County. From this first harnessing of the river's power developed scores of power facilities making the Wisconsin River the hardest worked river in the world."

Did You See That?. The Ghost of Windsor by Carol Murdock The Windsor Ruins is the site of 23 Corinthian Columns left at what once was, the site of Windsor Plantation Mansion. The columns cast iron caps were shipped down the Mississippi River via steamboat from St. Louis, MO in 1858. The mansion was completed in 1860 at a cost of $ 175,000.00. The mansion was built by Smith Coffee Daniell II, who died two weeks after it's completion. The property remained in the family until 1974 when four great-grandsons of Mr. Daniell, donated it to the state for historic preservation. The site is located in the rural area of Lorman, MS near Port Gibson,MS. off Hwy 61 between Natchez and Vicksburg. General Ulysses Grant declared Port Gibson, a "town to pretty to burn" during the Civil War. The house burned in 1890 after a carpenter working on the third floor, carelessly dropped a lit cigarette in a pile of debris. The ruins were used as a scene in the movie : " Raintree County"staring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Cli ...
The action stemmed from Southern outrage at the North's use of Black soldiers. From the beginning of hostilities, the Confederate leadership was faced with the question of whether to treat Black soldiers captured in battle as slaves in insurrection or, as the Union insisted, as prisoners of war. This conflict happened at Fort Pillow on the Mississippi River in Henning, Tennessee. The battle has caused great controversy about whether a massacre of surrendered African-American troops was carried out or condoned by Confederate Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest. One Northerner wrote, "Fort Pillow marked one of the bleakest, saddest events of American military history." Fort Pillow, 40 miles north of Memphis, was built by Brigadier General Gideon Johnson Pillow in early 1862 and was used by both sides during the war. When New Madrid and Island No. 10 fell to Union forces, Confederate troops evacuated Fort Pillow. Union forces occupied the Fort in the summer of 1862, the structure stood on a high bluff and w ...
Wan to know what is going on with Russia/US regarding eastern Europe? Several top Soviet strategists in the 1960's proposed a strategy for fighting the US with nuclear weapons. While many felt that 'city busting' of WWII would become the nuclear war of the future with city after city falling to nuclear weapons, there were top Russian generals that realized something was amiss. It wasn't until WWII history was restudied that perhaps the greatest nuclear war strategy was produced through books and finally dialogue. In WWII, the Germans utilized pincer movements that divided nations in half, and then quarters, and then smaller and smaller sections. When the Mississippi River was studied, it was quickly understood that the US was the easiest nation to employ the initial bilateral separation in the world...in the 1970's rocket artillery and cruise missile development provided for a transformation in strategy that eventually produced vacuum bombs and ABM's (anti ballistic missiles). While it is very difficult t ...
This took place about 12 years ago. When it comes to the “Outdoor Sports” I have always liked to go fishing more than anything else. We are fortunate to live in a state that has the best freshwater and saltwater fishing that I believe can be found anywhere and I especially like saltwater fishing. My lifelong friend, Rudy Tucker and I have started fishing offshore around the many oil platform rigs that are found around the mouth of the Mississippi River. If you have never been to the delta area I can only tell you that this area is the most beautiful part of Louisiana. The wildlife and scenic views of the Mississippi river delta are breathtaking and it is a very productive area for all kinds of saltwater fish. About a year ago we had worked ourselves up to taking the ultimate fishing trip which was to go out and fish the “Midnight Lump” for Tuna. About 20 miles out of the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River the bottom drops off to over 1500 feet but there is a small area where there is an u ...

Sub modo Sub modo is Latin for "Subject to a modification or qualification." In a contract sub modo, the agreement between the parties may be altered or limited within certain parameters. For example, in a 19th Century United States Supreme Court case, Eldridge v. Trezevant, 160 U.S. 452, a landowner with property adjoining the Mississippi River filed for an injunction to block the State of Louisiana from building a levee through his property. Citing an earlier Louisiana case, Ruch v. New Orleans, 43 La. Ann. 275, the Court upheld a lower court's dismissal of the injunction, stating "Under the doctrine of a servitude, the riparian owner enjoys his property sub modo, i.e. subject to the right of the public to reserve space enough for levees, public works, and the like; that over this space the front proprietor never acquires complete dominion. It never passes free of this reservation to a purchaser." In other words, in this particular...
HISTORY OF AMERICA: History of Hispanic and Latino Americans. A continuous Hispanic/Latino presence in the territory of the United States has existed since the 16th century, earlier than any other group after the Native Americans. Spaniards pioneered the present-day United States. The first confirmed European landing in the continental U.S. was by Juan Ponce de León, who landed in 1513 at a lush shore he christened La Florida. Within three decades of Ponce de León's landing, the Spanish became the first Europeans to reach the Appalachian Mountains, the Mississippi River, the Grand Canyon and the Great Plains. Spanish ships sailed along the East Coast, penetrating to present-day Bangor, Maine, and up the Pacific Coast as far as Oregon. From 1528 to 1536, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and three other castaways from a Spanish expedition (including an African named Estevanico) journeyed all the way from Florida to the Gulf of California, 267 years before the Lewis and Clark Expedition. In 1540 Hernando de S ...

I'll update after the sabbath, but for my safety, let me post an evacuation schedule for the First Wave, i.e., the Mississippi River, Great Lakes, Northeast Atlantic Seaboard: 1. By 8 days after the blackout, everyone west of the Mississippi River that wants to evacuate during the First Wave needs to get to St. Louis. St. Louis needs to evacuate eastward towards Chicago. Bandits may be on the route, but if we’re standing together, like an army, we’ll be a gang mightier than any other gang we encounter because we’ll be organized. Kansas City, Topeka, and St. Louis, are not within 50 miles of a nuclear reactor, but Omaha is. It’ll take the people in Omaha approximately 7 hours to get to St. Louis. If they’re coming, they should be there by Day 8 after the blackout. 2. By the 15th day after the blackout, evacuate Chicago. This includes Minneapolis and southern Wisconsin (Rockford, Beloit, and Janesville), all of which are also within 50 miles of nuclear plants. Those in Indianapolis who want ...
Just in case you were wondering about Cliven Bundy's legal stance. Federal Land Ownership: Constitutional Authority and the History of Acquisition, Disposal, and Retention Summary Federal land ownership began when the original 13 states ceded their “western” lands (between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River) to the central government between 1781 and 1802. Substantial land acquisition in North America via treaties and purchases began with the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 and culminated with the purchase of Alaska in 1867. In total, the federal government acquired 1.8 billion acres in North America. The U.S. Constitution addresses the relationship of the federal government to lands. Article IV, § 3, Clause 2 — the Property Clause — gives Congress authority over federal property generally, and the Supreme Court has described Congress’s power to legislate under this Clause as “without limitation.” The equal footing doctrine (based on language within Article IV, § 3, Clause 1), ...

Slept at Fort Tuthill, Flagstaff while we explored the Grand Canyon and surrounding wonders. Had light snow on the ground but it was rural enough for the dogs to run free. We left there for Glen Canyon Recreation Area, another awesome high plains desert environ. It's where Grand Canyon Colorado River trips begin. Astonishing beautiful place, we enjoyed perfect weather, blossoming dessert flowers - tawny oranges, salmon, yellow, pink, red, blue, purple, white growing along the Colorado River. The dogs frolicked in the 45% water and Robert DROPPED A LINE IN so that he has fished one of the great American rivers. And then we turned EAST. If we went any more West we would have been another month relishing the beauty of Utah and Colorado.

Back in 2012, Hans Bauer became the first person ever to climb Mt. Washington on stilts! Located in the state of New Hampshire, Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) and the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. It is famous for dangerously erratic weather. Mr. Bauer attached a pair of snowshoes to the bottom of his stilts, and hiked up a winding 8-mile road to the top of the mountain. Upon his arrival at the summit, Bauer provided quite an unusual and unprecedented sight to those working at the Observatory and State Park…it was certainly an unexpected visit! As the summit crew looked up at the man who towered above them on stilts, one asked “How’s the weather up there?” Taking in his surroundings on the summit of Mt. Washington, his simple answer summed up his day “Just perfect”.
TIME TRAVELING, APRIL 9 1682 Explorer Robert La Salle claims the lower Mississippi River and all lands that touch it for France. 1865 At Appomattox, Va., Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrenders his 28,000 Army troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War. Forced to abandon the Confederate capital of Richmond, blocked from joining the surviving Confederate force in North Carolina, and harassed constantly by the Union cavalry, Lee has no other option. The four years of fighting had killed 360,000 Union troops and 260,000 Confederate troops. 1867 The U.S. Senate ratifies by one vote a treaty with Russia that purchases the territory of Alaska. 1881 After a one-day trial, Billy the Kid is found guilty of murdering Lincoln County, N.M., sheriff William Brady and is sentenced to hang. On April 28, he escapes from jail, but less than three months later, the new sheriff tracks him down and shoots him. 1928 Mae West makes her debut on Broadway in the production of "Diam . ...

Today the 7th of April , 60 years ago I enlisted into the USAF. The Korean War was in its last days. After swearing in I was selected to be in-charge of about 10 of us good ole boys to board to train to TEXAS. Heck it was my first train ride and I had never been on the other side of the Mississippi River. This was the start of a 20 year career. It is hard to believe that I have been retired another 40 years. But let me tell you here and It has been a *** good ride.
HISTORY OF THE CAR RADIO Seems like cars have always had radios, but they didn't. Here's the story: One evening, in 1929, two young men named William Lear and Elmer Wavering drove their girlfriends to a lookout point high above the Mississippi River town of Quincy, Illinois, to watch the sunset. It was a romantic night to be sure, but one of the women observed that it would be even nicer if they could listen to music in the car. Lear and Wavering liked the idea. Both men had tinkered with radios (Lear served as a radio operator in the U.S. Navy during World War I) and it wasn't long before they were taking apart a home radio and trying to get it to work in a car. But it wasn't easy: automobiles have ignition switches, generators, spark plugs, and other electrical equipment that generate noisy static interference, making it nearly impossible to listen to the radio when the engine was running. One by one, Lear and Wavering identified and eliminated each source of electrical interference. When they finally g ...

The Shawnee or Shawnee nation (Shaawanwaki, Ša˙wano˙ki and Shaawanowi lenaweeki[2]) are an Algonquian-speaking people native to North America. In colonial times they were a semi-migratory Native American nation, at times inhabiting areas spanning present-day Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Western Maryland, South Carolina, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, and Pennsylvania in the United States. They were removed to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River in the 1830s. Today the three federally recognized Shawnee tribes: Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, and Shawnee Tribe, are all headquartered in Oklahoma.

Anoka County resumes Mississippi River search today for missing Ramsey man, Travis Benjamin
Terry’s Texas Rangers were formed at Houston in 1861 by Benjamin Franklin Terry and Thomas S. Lubbock. Originally consisting of 1,170 men, the unit saw action all through the South, particularly in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia. Unfortunately, Terry himself was killed at their first engagement, although other officers ably took his place. Known for their contempt of sabers, which they considered useless as cavalry weapons, the Rangers did most of their mounted fighting with shotguns and pistols, often to devastating effect on opposing Federal troops. They also served effectively as foragers, raiders, and scouts. The Rangers served until the end of the War, making one last, victorious charge to secure a vital bridge at the Battle of Bentonville, the final major battle east of the Mississippi River. Their members either were surrendered at Bennett Place, North Carolina, a short time later with the rest of Johnston’s army or allowed to drift back to Texas on their own. ~Robert~ Photo: Philip Boton Hal ...

Another post for today, April 2; April 2, 1863: Northern born, General Pemberton, under critm from some southern quarters, was stoutly defended by President Davis, who wrote on the beleagured General's behalf ; " by his judicious disposition of his forces and skilful selection of the lastv points of defence he has repulsed the enemy at Vicksburg, Port Hudson, on the Tallahatchie and at Deer Creek, and he has thus far foiled his enemy's attempt to get possession of the Mississippi River and the vast section of the country which it controls."

One of the coolest radio stations in the nation just joined Radio Submit to get new hot releases for their playlist. Thanks John at KWEM FM 88.3 West Memphis, AR. About KWEM FM: The Memphis sound is known world-wide. Pop music scholars often cite Memphis, Tennessee as the place where rock & roll began in the 1950s. But to understand Memphis music and how it really came into being, you must first look 7 miles to the west, just across the Mississippi River. From the cotton fields, street corners and juke joints of the Delta the seeds of a new kind of music were taking hold. Something new and magical was emerging, something deeply rooted in Delta soil and piercing into Delta souls. If you ask where rock and roll was conceived the answer might surprise you. It happened here in West Memphis, Arkansas, in a radio station known as KWEM. In the 1940’s, the legendary musicians who shaped the blues and created many of the first rock and roll records were lured by the winds of change and lust for fame to the dusty ...
In 1803 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, in a precursor to the national belief in Manifest Destiny, were commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to lead a band of men on an expedition to discover the fabled Northwest Passage, a waterborne route between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean. These brave explorers set out with a specific mission and prepared accordingly. They were heralded, paraded, and supplied all the way to St Louis, the edge of civilization and the beginning of the virtually unknown (hence the Arch, the Gateway to the West). Almost immediately their mission was modified to include exploration of the recently acquired Louisiana Territory. Along the way they met with friend and foe, sickness and disease, hardship and fortune. Many unexpected discoveries were made. Much territory was mapped for future explorers. Years were spent in search of what did not exist. Their mission was a failure. Yet, for over two hundred years they have been celebrated as our greatest explorers. Why ...
Never saw Tulare Lake with my own eyes but I found this article very interesting. Hard to imagine a 32 foot schooner could navigate a lake in our own back yard given the water condition that faces the Valley today."Tulare Lake" By Ellen Gorelick, Executive Director-Chief Curator Tulare Historical Museum When the Yokuts Indian Nation Inhabited the great San Joaquin Valley, Tulare Lake was purported to be the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River. The lake lay within the borders of what used to be a much larger Tulare County, and it's waters once lapped at the edge of Buzzard's Roost now known as the town of Waukena. In 1868, the lake covered almost 1,000 square miles. From prehistoric times, the rush-choked lake provided an abundance of waterfowl, fish, clams, mussels, oysters and terrapin for the Yokuts living around the lake. Adept with bow and arrow, the Yokuts also hunted deer, elk and antelope along the lakes rambling shoreline. In 1773, Commandant Tagus, an Emissary for the Spanish G ...
A tent revival came to Bridge City, right at the foot of the Huey Long Bridge, which is on the West bank of the Mississippi River. My in-laws insisted I go with them.They knew this evangelist and wanted him to pray over Jason. My father-in-law grabbed Jason out of my arms and ran in the prayer line. After the preacher anointed my baby's head with oil, praying over him, he called me to the front. He did the same thing to me, telling me, "God" had just told him Jason was going be alright. This preacher had never heard of Gaucher's. Rebelling against all that was 'promised' to me for Jason I wondered, if his words had anything to do with that hundred dollars my husband had told me to put in the offering plate. I had better things to buy for my son, than to give it away on promises to which there was not a guarantee. However, I kept my skepticism to myself. I went back to that tent revival a few more times. The 'promise' was, God would heal Jason before the week had ended. The tent revival moved on. The promi ...

It began in the late 1940s, and was vacant when burned to the ground on October 9, 1979. The one-time exclusive club had been closed for about two years at the time it burned.

History lesson for my Haitian brothers and sisters. The first permanent settler in Chicago was a black man named Jean Baptiste Point DuSable. He was born on the island of Haiti around 1745 to a French mariner and a mother who was a slave of African descent. DuSable was educated in France and then, in the early 1770s, sailed to New Orleans. From there, he made his way up the Mississippi River to Peoria, Illinois where he married a Potawatomi woman named Catherine in a tribal ceremony. The couple had two children, Jean Baptiste Point DuSable, Jr. and Suzanne. The marriage formally recognized before a Catholic priest in Cahokia, Illinois in 1778. DuSable settled along the northern bank of the Chicago River near Lake Michigan ca. 1779 and developed a prosperous trading post and farm. His cabin is often depicted a modest structure, but written descriptions of the property suggest that DuSable may have lived more than a modest life. According to original manuscripts documenting the sale of DuSable’s property, ...

Today is Wednesday, March 19, the 78th day of 2014. There are 287 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On March 19, 1979, the U.S. House of Representatives began televising its floor proceedings; the live feed was carried by C-SPAN (Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network), which was making its debut. On this date: In 1687, French explorer Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle -- the first European to navigate the length of the Mississippi River -- was murdered by mutineers in present-day Texas. In 1863, the Confederate cruiser Georgianna, on its maiden voyage, was scuttled off Charleston, S.C., to prevent it from falling into Union hands. In 1918, Congress approved daylight saving time. In 1920, the Senate rejected, for a second time, the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY') by a vote of 49 in favor, 35 against, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed for approval.

“On This Day”…Happy Birthday Unita Blackwell! Unita Blackwell, a civil rights activist and the first black female mayor in the state of Mississippi, was born the daughter of sharecropping parents in Coahoma County, Mississippi on March 18, 1933. She worked throughout the civil rights era urging and recruiting blacks to register to vote, while holding positions in numerous organizations to fight for black civil rights in the United States. In 1976 Blackwell’s decade long activism in voter registration and other civil rights issues paid off when she ran for and won the position of Mayor of Mayersville, a Mississippi River town of 1,635 residents. Upon taking office Unita Blackwell became the first black woman to serve as mayor in the entire state. Despite beginning her adult life with an eighth grade education, Blackwell in 1983 received a master’s degree in Regional Planning from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She was also a recipient of the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship ...

On March 14, 1863, on the Mississippi River, Adm. David G. Farragut sent his squadron of seven ships against the shoreline batteries of Port Hudson, attempting to run past them. At 10 P.M., the fleet sailed up river, the heavier ships on the fort side, the lighter ships farther from the guns. Farragut’s flagship, the U.S.S. HARTFORD, made it past the fort’s guns but the RICHMOND took a round in her steam plant and was disabled. With the assistance of the GENESEE, which was lashed alongside, the RICHMOND made it out of range with little more damage. The next ship, the MONONGAHELA, ran aground under the guns of the lower fort and took a pounding for some 30 minutes before getting away with the help of the KINEO. The MONONGAGELA had at least eight shots pass entirely through the ship. The bridge was shot from underneath Capt. James McKinstry, injuring him and killing three others. An attempt was made to continue up river but without success. The ship drifted downstream and anchored out of range of the gu ...

Persistent cold air during the first part of the spring is likely to cause severe weather to get off to a sluggish start in a heavily populated part of the nation. However, a marked turnaround is expected later in the spring for 2014. On average, severe weather gradually ramps up moving forward through the spring. This year, the transition may occur later and may be more dramatic. A spike in damaging thunderstorms, including some capable of producing tornadoes, is expected during May and June. "We expect a southward dip in steering-level winds to occur much of the time over a large part of the Midwest to the Eastern states during March and the first part of April." This dip of strong winds high in the atmosphere, known as a jet stream trough, will generally keep warm, moist air at bay from near the Mississippi River to the Atlantic coast. Last year, a similar setup occurred in much of the same area during the spring and led to a much lower-than-average severe weather season for the nation as a whole. Thun ...

Sailing update! We repaired the fuel line and motored all night thru the ICW. We ran aground on a small island that we couldn't see due to heavy fog but thankfully we were able to rock the boat and get her free. So far I haven't burned any meals and no one is seasick (probably because we haven't made it to the sea). We motored all night long and should arrive the Mississippi River around 10pm. We will anchor to get some rest for a few hours and be on the move till about midnight tomorrow when we reach New Orleans. We will get a good nights rest before crossing the gulf on Friday for about 5 days to our destination in Mexico where we will rest a few days and head back straight thru the gulf back to Galveston.

The Japanese tulip trees and the dogwood are blooming in the upper bay area of sunny CA, and the weather reminds me of a moment of departure that had a large impact on both my life and career many years ago, although at the time I saw nothing very remarkable about it. In 1984 I was in Lawrence Ferlinghetti's Book Store in the North Beach area of San Francisco. I bought a note pad for less than a dollar and walked up the street to an Italian café that had an awning with tables under it. The day was balmy, the awning riffling in the breeze. As I recall there was a small esplanade in the street and a Catholic church on the other side. I printed the words "The Neon Rain" on the top of the page of the notebook and began the first scene of a novel whose direction and content I had not planned or thought about or ever considered investigating. The opening image dealt with a sunset on the Mississippi River and the sprawling eight-thousand acres of misery and pain and death known as Angola Farm. I wrote two chap ...

History Hurricane Katrina The U.S. 90 bridge between Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi and Pass Christian, Mississippi, as well as the bridge between Biloxi, Mississippi and Ocean Springs, Mississippi were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. During the storm the St. Louis Bay bridge was under water and destroyed. Portions of Highway 90 were damaged along the Battleship Parkway on Mobile Bay in Baldwin County, AL. Sections of the highway in Harrison County, Mississippi, including other bridges and much of the roadbed, were damaged or destroyed. Both the Rigolets Bridge and the Chef Menteur Bridge across Chef Menteur Pass in New Orleans East were damaged, but have since been reopened. Some sections of the highway in New Orleans, Louisiana were unpassable under flood waters for weeks due to the general flooding of that city; see Effect of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans. The Crescent City Connection bridge over the Mississippi River in Sector 49, also known as Business U.S. 90, remained intact and was ...
I have membership in the Wild Ones Natural Landscapers with headquarters in Neenah, WI. There is a small beginning WO chapter in Colorado; I'm not sure where but I'll find out. I have been going thru your list of CO native plant nurseries and one other source, and I am posting a photo and info onto the WO national FB page in the album of Western Nurseries. As a horticulturist from east of the Mississippi River, I know some Rocky Mt region plants as Colorado Spruce, Douglas-Fir, Ponderosa Pine, and some others, but there are many I don't know. I can see that a number of nurseries in your list sell more conventional plants that are the same in the Midwest and East; but others are totally native.

ROTARY PROGRAM ABOUT MISSISSIPPI HIGHWAY PATROL By: J. Lane Greenlee On February 28, 2014, the Winona Rotary Club held its regular Friday noon meeting at the Pizza Inn. Twenty-one members and 3 guests were present. Delta Electric Manager Tim McBride introduced Trooper First Class Tony Dunn who is a Public Affairs Officer for the Mississippi Highway Patrol, and he presented a program about the MHP. Trooper Dunn serves as the Public Affairs Officer for District 2 or Troop D of the MHP which includes 10 counties in central Mississippi. The district extends from the Mississippi River on the west to the eastern boundary of Montgomery County on the east, and has its office at Greenwood. Trooper Dunn said that his normal civic program was about safety issues but that he was going to talk to us about the need for a trooper school since that issue was now on the legislative agenda. The MHP was formed in 1938 and was tasked with enforcing the traffic laws on the state highways in Mississippi. It is a part of the .. ...
18 days left now until Spring! Kentucky's State Tree the Tulip Tree is once again reviewed in our Countdown to Spring! Tennessee and Indiana also chose this tree. One of the largest and most valuable hardwoods of eastern North America, it is native from southern New England and New York westward to southern Michigan, and south to Louisiana and northern Florida. It is found sparingly in New England, it is abundant on the southern shore of Lake Erie and westward to Illinois. It extends south to north Florida, and is rare west of the Mississippi River, but is found occasionally for ornamentals. Its finest development is in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, where trees may exceed 170 feet in height. Liriodendron tulipifera is generally considered to be a shade-intolerant species that is most commonly associated with the first century of forest succession. In Appalachian forests, it is a dominant species during the 50–150 years of succession, but is absent or rare in stands of trees 500 years or older. ...
American buffalo, (Bison bison) _ It is believed that buffalo, or bison, crossed over a land bridge that once connected the Asian and North American continents. Through the centuries buffalo slowly moved southward, eventually reaching as far south as Mexico and as far east as the Atlantic Coast, extending south to Florida. But the largest herds were found on the plains and prairies from the Rocky Mountains east to the Mississippi River, and from Great Slave Lake in Canada to Texas. Because the great herds were nearly gone before any organized attempts were made to survey populations, we may never know just how many buffalo once roamed North America, although estimates range from 30 to 75 million. "The moving multitude...darkened the whole plains," wrote Lewis and Clark, who encountered a herd at South Dakota's White River in 1806. Although the buffalo's size and color, which ranges from light to dark brown, vary in different areas of the country, experts generally agree that all American buffalo belong to ...

RIP ORLEY HOOD, One of a kind for sure! Reading part of one of his old columns this AM made me smile: In his words.)I might just try cremation myself. I'd give UMC a shot at harvesting whatever might be of use to someone else, then torch the rest. I'd just as soon my ashes be spread over places that held meaning in my life. The 18th green at Deerfield, for instance, where, one late afternoon, I made a nine-iron from the fairway for an eagle 2 to win all bets. Maybe Memorial Stadium, where I saw good ol' Archie come back from the trainer's room to beat Georgia. Or, better yet, I'd like my ashes tossed off the old Mississippi River Bridge in Vicksburg, into the roiling current. That way, I figure, I'll get to New Orleans one last time.
Some interesting US history. By:Barack Obama's Dead Fly I'm happy that some people knew about the State of Franklin. They had their own Declaration of Independence. Two of my ancestors were the main signers on it. In 1784, four counties in western North Carolina declare their independence as the state of Franklin. The counties lay in what would eventually become Tennessee. The previous April, the state of North Carolina had ceded its western land claims between the Allegheny Mountains and the Mississippi River to the United States Congress. The settlers in this area, known as the Cumberland River Valley, had formed their own independent government from 1772 to 1777 and were concerned that Congress would sell the territory to Spain or France as a means of paying off some of the government's war debt. As a result, North Carolina retracted its cession and began to organize an administration for the territory. Simultaneously, representatives from Washington, Sullivan, Spencer (modern-day Hawkins) and Greene c ...
Bass Reeves.Let me Introduce you to the "real " Lone Ranger his identity stolen and changed, elder and Mr. Bass Reeves .Bass Reeves was the first African American to receive a commission as a Deputy U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi River. What the Lone Ranger did in movies, Bass Reeves did in real life. Known for wielding a rifle along with two pistols on either hip and being a dangerously accurate shot, Reeves had an serious intimidating presence. Reeves was a runnaway slave who learned from the Native Americans how to make himself appear smaller on his strong white and grey horse. At times he would surprise outlaws by adopting their clothing and mannerisms. Just as the Lone Ranger gave out silver bullets, so too did Reeves give out silver dollars as calling cards. Reeves was also often accompanied by one particular Native American, whose name is unfortunately unknown to historians at this time. According to contemporary reports, Reeves apprehended more than 3,000 outlaws and killed 14 during his ...

BLACK HISTORY MONTH DAY 19 Bass Reeves A LEGEND OF THE WEST: Gaius Chamberlain, This one is interesting, especially for the western fan Bass Reeves is surrounded by so much legend that it is hard to determine what is fact and what is fiction. What is certain is that he was one of if not the first Black lawman to serve west of the Mississippi River. Bass Reeves was born a slave in 1838 in Crawford County, Arkansas. His owner was named William S. Reeves and was a prominent politician in the region as well as a farmer. Bass worked as a water boy in the cotton fields of the Reeves farm and was regaled with stories of adventure featuring Black heroes. The Reeves family moved near Paris, Texas in 1846. Bass allegedly escaped and fled into the Indian Territory (which we now know as Oklahoma) as a fugitive slave. There he associated with Native Americans from the Creek and Seminole tribes. During this time, he developed an understanding and appreciation of their languages and their customs. The fact that he maste ...
1885, Mark Twain publishes his famous--and famously controversial--novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain (the pen name of Samuel Clemens) first introduced Huck Finn as the best friend of Tom Sawyer, hero of his tremendously successful novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). Though Twain saw Huck's story as a kind of sequel to his earlier book, the new novel was far more serious, focusing on the institution of slavery and other aspects of life in the antebellum South. At the book's heart is the journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on a raft. Jim runs away because he is about to be sold and separated from his wife and children, and Huck goes with him to help him get to Ohio and freedom. Huck narrates the story in his distinctive voice, offering colorful descriptions of the people and places they encounter along the way. The most striking part of the book is its satirical look at racism, religion and other social attitudes of the time. While Jim is stro ...

Annual wreath laying to the unknown soldiers at Jefferson Barracks. And here's a bit of history involving Carondelet and Jefferson Barracks . In 1826 General Edmund P. Gaines (Commander of the Western Department of the Army), Brig. General Henry Atkinson (commanding officer of the sixth infantry regiment), explorer William Clark, and Missouri Governor John Miller spent several days searching the banks of the Mississippi River for the perfect location for a new post to replace Fort Bellefontaine. A site near the city of "Vide Poche" or Carondelet, ten miles (16 km) south of St. Louis, was recommended and then approved by Major General Jacob J. Brown, Commanding General of the Army.The city of Carondelet then sold the 1702.7 acres to the US army. On July 10, 1826, two days after the deed to the land was signed, the first military troops—six officers and 245 enlisted men of Companies A, B, H and I, commanded by Brevet Major Stephen Watts Kearny—arrived at the new post and started building temporary quart ...
The Indian Removal Act was a law that was passed during the presidency of Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830. The act authorized him to negotiate with the Native Americans in the Southern United States for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for their homelands. The act was strongly supported by non-native people of the South, who were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. Christian missionaries, most notably Jeremiah Evarts, protested against its passage. The Five Civilized Tribes, consisting of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee-Creek, and Seminole, were well established as autonomous nations in the southeastern United States. The acculturation proposed by George Washington was well underway among the Cherokee and Choctaw.Thomas Jefferson's policy had been to respect the Native Americans' rights to their homelands. Effectively, all Native Americans who had adopted a civilized behavior could remain east of the Mississippi. He pl ...

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY Beale Street, Memphis, TN Stretching from the Mississippi River toward the east, Beale Street is Memphis's most famous avenue. On the infamous section of Beale Street between Main and Lauderdale Streets, the "Blues was born," and as Beale Street's reputation for a culturally rich, African American urban life spread, visitors arrived from all over the region. Beale Street was first created as a part of South Memphis by city planner Robertson Topp. Though the origins of how Beale was given its name are murky, the official story is that it was named for a long-forgotten war hero. During the early days of Beale, the area became home to a great number of freed slaves and free African-Americans, many from the Mississippi Delta, as well as Irish and Italian immigrants, living peacefully among Memphis’ residents, with reportedly few racial tensions. For decades, the area beyond Beale Street was the southern boundary of downtown Memphis. Racial segregation prohibited African Americans . ...

2) "ARMISTICE DAY STORM" November 11-12, 1940 Mild weather ahead of an intense low pressure system tracking from Kansas to western Wisconsin was quickly followed by a raging blizzard. Many people were caught off-guard by the severity of the storm and the plunging temperatures. Sixty degree temperatures during the morning on the 11th was followed by single digit readings by the morning of the 12th. These very cold temperatures and snow amounts were very unusual for this early in the season. Up to 26 inches of snow fell in Minnesota, while winds of 50 to 80 mph and heavy snows were common over parts of the states of Wisconsin, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa and Michigan. These winds were responsible for whipping up 20 foot drifts. A total of 144 deaths were blamed on the storm (13 in Wisconsin), most of which were duck hunters along the Mississippi River. Milwaukee received only a trace of snow, but 80 mph winds downed hundreds of trees.

The Great Flood of 1927 by Gil Cohen Arkansas, May 1927 The great Mississippi River flood of 1927 was one of the worst natural disasters in American history. It inundated 27,000 square miles, an area about the size of New England, killing as many as 1,000 people and displacing 700,000 more. At a time when the entire budget of the federal government was barely $3 billion, the flood caused an estimated $1 billion in damage. Although National Guard aviation units had been regularly called upon to assist civil authorities since early in that decade, the 1927 flood marked the first time that an entire Guard flying unit and its government-issued aircraft had been mobilized to help deal with a major natural disaster. Governor John E. Martineau called up the 10 officers and 50 enlisted members of the 154th Observation Squadron, Arkansas National Guard, to help locate stranded flood victims as well as to deliver food, medicines and supplies to them and relief workers. The unit also conducted aerial patrols along t ...
Kansas Cattleman's Association press release, February 10, 2014: Cattlemen Applaud Kansas Attorney General for Standing up to EPA Earlier this week, Attorney General Derek Schmidt, along with 20 other states' attorney generals filed a brief asking the court to reject the EPA's effort to impose new regulations of nutrient-runoff standards in individual states within the Chesapeake Bay region. "The issue is whether EPA can reach beyond the plain language of the Clean Water Act and micromanage how states meet federal water-quality standards," Schmidt said. "We think the clear answer is 'no,' and we would prefer to get that answer while the question surrounds land use in the Chesapeake Bay instead of waiting for EPA to do the same thing along the Mississippi River basin. Congress deliberately structured the Clean Water Act to involve states in the decision-making process when nonpoint source runoff is being regulated," AG Schmidt said. "That's because runoff regulation inevitably implicates land use decisions ...

Man triumphs in Mississippi paddle. A British adventurer has finished a mammoth charity canoe after paddling more than 2,000 miles solo down the Mississippi River. Kevin Brady paddled up to 14 hours a day in a 17ft aluminium two-man canoe called Orca to raise money for a children's charity. The 30-year-old, who is a cousin of Jamie McDonald, who has just finished a 5,000-mile run across Canada, braved the dangerous waters for the 2,350-mile paddle, which is almost four times the length of mainland Britain. What makes his feat even more remarkable is that he had only one weekend's preparation on the River Wye before setting off. Brady, from Gloucester, started out from Lake Itasca in Minnesota, the source of the great river, in September and reached the Gulf of Mexico yesterday - after more than 140 days' paddling. He hopes to raise £3,000 for the Pied Piper Appeal to help sick children at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. Brady continued paddling despite injuries that threatened to end his journey prematur ...

Today, with the Illinois Dept of Transportation, we dedicate the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge over the Mississippi River in St. Louis. Last night, the lights were officially switched on for the first time. Thanks to all the organizations that donated toward the lights. It's gorgeous! On Sunday, Feb. 9, I-70 traffic will begin travel on the bridge.
How is this still going on? (from wiki, btw.) Using data from Enbridge's own reports, the Polaris Institute calculated that 804 spills occurred on Enbridge pipelines between 1999 and 2010. These spills released approximately 161,475 barrels (25,672.5 m3) of crude oil into the environment.[21] On July 4, 2002, an Enbridge pipeline ruptured in a marsh near the town of Cohasset, Minnesota, in Itasca County, spilling 6,000 barrels (950 m3) of crude oil. In an attempt to keep the oil from contaminating the Mississippi River, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources set a controlled burn that lasted for one day and created a smoke plume about 1-mile (1.6 km) high and 5 miles (8.0 km) long.[22] In 2006 there were 67 reportable spills totaling 5,663 barrels (900.3 m3) on Enbridge's energy and transportation and distribution system; in 2007 there were 65 reportable spills totaling 13,777 barrels (2,190.4 m3) [23] On March 18, 2006, approximately 613 barrels (97.5 m3) of crude oil were released when a pump fai ...

Lt. Colonel George Rogers Clark makes final preparations for his campaign against Vincennes. Feb. 4, 1779 - from Kaskaskia, About 2 p.m., the boat called The Willing, left Kaskaskia along the Mississippi River. On board were 40 to 46 men. The Willing would travel down the Mississippi, up the Ohio, and up the Wabash River and meet Clark's men south of Vincennes. Meanwhile, Clark sought French-Canadians to join his 85 Americans for an overland march to Vincennes. At about 10 o'clock, Capt. Richard McCarty arrived with Cahokia's French-Canadian volunteers who joined a similar group from Kaskaskia.

As a way to pass the time during the snow days, boys at Broyhill Home decided to crochet a mat out of "plarn" (plastic yarn) so a homeless person could have something comfortable to sleep on. Plastic bags were cut into strips/loops, connected together into a chain and then crocheted. The boys were inching to take part in the crocheting and are well on their way to making a 3 by 5 foot mat that will be given to a Mississippi River Ministry location who will then provide it to a homeless person in need. Way to go everyone for being creative and thinking of others!

Well heading to Mississippi River to go do some ice fishing
i want to tell ya'll about Thomas. about 12yrs ago, we lived in a travel trailer(camper) for a while. during this time, Roxy was a baby and i was a stay at home mom. actually, i felt one step away from being homeless. lol. anyway, i stayed outside a lot pushing roxy in her stroller, planting trees ect. --one day i saw this little old man walking by on the hiway in almost 100 degree weather. i invited him to the camper to cool off and food/water. we talked and talked and talked. he gave me a tape that i listened to after he left. it was a warning about *** i saw Thomas on several occasions after that, walking down the hiway and i would give him a ride, food, money. i took him all the way to the Mississippi River Bridge one day and he finally said, "you have to stop and let me out now so i can catch my next ride" see, Thomas was homeless by choice. He spent his whole life traveling around, totally depending on God for his next ride to preach the gospel.

One hundred fifty years ago, on February 4, 1864, a productive expedition sets out from Helena: HELENA, ARK., February 7, 1864. SIR: I have the honor to submit the following report of scout up White River: I embarked on steamer Cheek February 4, 1864, at 8.50 a.m., in command of 100 men Fifteenth Illinois Cavalry, 40 Third Arkansas, African Descent, Captain Robinson, and 7 men, with one piece of artillery, Lieutenant Hadlock. Left Helena 9 a.m., proceeded toward Friar's Point, destroyed one flat-boat; arrived at Friar's Point 11 a.m.; found four cotton-boats there. The gun-boat had been ordered to Memphis. In your dispatch to Captain Brown, of gun-boat, you wanted the steamer White ordered to Helena. I took discretionary power to order all of them to report to your headquarters, as I thought that they could be easily captured by the rebels, as they had no gun-boat to protect them. I then proceeded on; arrived Island 63 at 12 m., delivered dispatches; passed gun-boat Eastport at Island 65, the steamer Rike ...
God Pause Matthew 5:13-20 "You are the salt of the earth." These words are taken from Jesus' training manual for those seeking to be his disciples, often called, "The Sermon on the Mount." "If you follow me," taught Jesus, "You are the salt of the earth." On Friday we will focus on the same passage when Jesus said, "You are the light of the world." Metaphors are domesticated when they are dissected. They are meant to point to a truth that is larger than what we can describe with language. When Jesus described his disciples as being "salt" he was pointing to George as a model. George was five years old when the police found his father floating in the Mississippi River. His father delivered laundry. He had been robbed during his downtown St Paul route, murdered, and dumped into the river. George had been born with club feet, his left arm a stub above the elbow and his right arm with only two fingers extending from the elbow. There was no welfare available so George's mother became a domestic and his two old ...
As a kid birder, I tried to imagine some day seeing a Painted Bunting. Living in New Jersey and rarely venturing beyond my own neighborhood, this seemed an unlikely possibility. It was only after I got drafted and eventually moved to New Orleans that my dream was realized. I think that most birders remember their first sightings of many species, but for me this event stands out. It was a tantalizing brief glimpse of the unmistakable psychedelic coat of a male bunting, in a park along the Mississippi River.
People get very few opportunities to talk back to politicians, even those that claim to be running "General Assemblies" instead of traditional campaign offices, or even running a "revolutionary government" from the Mayor's or President's office. Everything is a scam with these people, may as well buy a bridge over the Mississippi River. There are no "good" politicians, just like there are no "good" forms of cancer. They are all self-serving, duplicitous, and treacherous to a fault. They basically are agents of a capitalist society, rather than a new society of self-governing people, where they are not wanted or needed.

for grades 5 ( Amalfi and Minori ) Civil War Timeline The Civil War lasted from 1861 until 1865. The southern states wanted to have their own nation and be able to decide what laws to have. The north did not want the country to be broken apart. In the election of 1860 Abraham Lincoln stated that he wanted to stop the spread of slavery. The southern states said that if Lincoln won, they would secede (leave) the union. The southern states seceded from the union after Lincoln was elected. They formed their own nation, The Confederate States of America. The war began in April of 1861 when the Confederate Army took over Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina. President Lincoln was forced to declare war. The war was a long and bloody. Over 600,000 men on both sides died. Over 1,100,000 were injured. The south was devastated. General Lee surrendered to General Grant on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. The war was over. • Cold War The Cold War was a long period of tension between the d .. ...

The Coca-Cola ad during Sunday's Super Bowl, which could have easily cost that company over $8 million in air time alone, created a stir in the social media. The ad, which featured singing of the patriotic song "America the Beautiful" in seven languages, including Tagalog, started a debate in America. The super conservatives think the song should only be sung in English. For more on this topic, read my column in the Filipino Reporter this Friday. But, if I may say now, to me, what I don't approve of, is the translation to Tagalog of the last sentence of the first stanza, "Above the fruited plain." It was sung as "sa ibabaw ng mga prutas." Hehehe! ("Fruited plain" refers to the Great Plains or the broad expanse of flat land, much of it covered in prairie and grassland, which lies west of the Mississippi River and east of the Rocky Mountains in the United States).

Here is the first and most well known story about the Cross Roads Demon that will appear in the blog/book. Enjoy The Dark of a Moonless Night... In the delta of the Mississippi River, where Robert Johnson was born, they said that if an aspiring bluesman waited by the side of a deserted crossroads in the dark of a moonless night, then the Devil himself might come and tune his guitar, sealing a pact for the bluesman's soul and guaranteeing a lifetime of easy money, women, and fame. They said that Robert Johnson must have waited by the crossroads and gotten his guitar fine-tuned. Robert Johnson was a Mississippi blues singer and songwriter, who according to legend, sold his soul to Satan "at the crossroads" in exchange for his remarkable talent on the guitar. Born and raised in Mississippi, Robert Johnson started playing blues guitar in the late 1920s. His wife and child died in childbirth around 1930 and he is said to have devoted himself to the guitar. Part of the crossroads story comes from a report that ...

Little dogs and big horses are friends for life... Deal with it! .. Some people who like Coca-Cola don't appreciate it that a commercial to sell the product uses languages and people from other countries even though Coca-Cola might be sold in those other countries and then the money they make there is brought home to spend on TV commercials in America. What the... ??!?!?! ... Cars always look fast and cool when it is dark and the streets are kinda wet. ...

"So Dean and I raced on to the East Coast. At one point we drove a 1947 Cadillac limousine across the state of Nebraska 110 miles an hour, beating hot-shot passenger trains and steel-wheel freights in one nervous, shuddering snap up of the gas. We told stories and zoomed East. There were hobos by the tracks, wino bottles, the moon shining on wood fires. There were white-faced cows out in the plains, dim as nuns. There was dawn, Iowa, Mississippi River at Davenport, Chicago by nightfall. *** man,” said Dean to me as we stood in front of a bar on North Clark Street on a hot summer night, “Dig these old Chinamen that cut by Chicago. What a weird town! And what women in that window up there, just looking down, you know, and they’re standing there in the window, those big wide eyes waiting. Sal, we’ve gotta go and never stop going ’til we get there.” I said, “Where we going, Dean?” " - On The Road Scroll, Kerouac

Two Wheels over Nevada By Rockford Lewis Nevada. I once thought of the state only as part of a long boring drive from my home in Southern California to Las Vegas, a trip my wife and I made twice per year all through the seventies. Why? Those were the years I spent building my career, making a home, raising my family and spending money like “there was no tomorrow.” What better place to go when you are in the mood to throw away some hard earned cash. Two and a half decades later, I still liked to visit Las Vegas, but I had a new opinion of Nevada. I was visiting the state more often with less time spent chasing jackpots from nickel slots. My son Christopher was a Seabee in the US Navy and served part of his enlistment stationed at Fallon, Nevada. Imagine that, a navy base in the middle of the Nevada desert. It is a naval air station where “top gun” fighter pilots are trained. During a couple summer weekend visits, I sat in one of Chris’ lawn chairs sipping cold tea until near midnight whil ...

1. Pastrami Sandwich - New York City Neighbourhoods grow and change but some things stay the same. A fixture in New York's Lower East Side since 1888, Katz's Delicatessen is a holdover from a time that has long disappeared from the old neighbourhood. Less than a block from the Tenement Museum, which celebrates the immigrants who lived in the area in the early 20th century, Katz's is most famous for its pastrami. The deli's superiority is so renowned that it has online ordering, shipping all over the United States and to any military address, a tradition established during World War Two. As luxury hotels and trendy nightclubs pop up around it, the quality and tradition of Katz's ensures it will be a fixture for the next 125 years. 2.

James Payne was born in Culpepper County, Virginia in 1801. In 1829-30 he had a store at Payne's Landing on the Mississippi River a few miles from the Maryland Settlement, now known as Church Hill. He married Jane Caroline Wood on January 30, 1828, and they had ten children. She was the daughter of Col. James Gillam Wood and Martha Young Wood, who migrated to Jefferson County in 1811 from Maryland. Col. Wood, who provided homes for all of his children, built Oak Grove for the couple in 1829. In addition to Payne's Landing he also was co-owner of a store in Rodney. James Payne died June 16, 1853 while visiting Cooper's Wells. His body was transported from there to Rodney and he is buried in the Wood family cemetery on property now part of the Cedars. Source: Charles Dawkins, Hattiesburg, MS

Birds Point is just a toy! The Morganza Spillway, a 4,159-foot controlled spillway using a set of flood gates to control the volume of water entering the Morganza Floodway from the Mississippi River, consists of a concrete weir, two sluice gates, seventeen scour indicators, and 125 gated openings which can allow up to 600,000 cubic feet per second of water to be diverted from the Mississippi River into the Atchafalaya Basin during major floods. The project was completed in 1954. The spillway was opened during the flood of 1973 and 2011. About 65,000 people live in the spillway area - the gates have two purposes - the first was to keep the river from changing courses and going through the Achafalya Basin - the second was to keep the river from flooding Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Nine of Americas largest refineries lie on the River in that area. Every gallon of fuel that we use in this area comes from there. You can see tape of the opening of the spillway - search Morganza spillway opening. An amaz ...

On February 3rd in American history: 1690 — The colony of Massachusetts issued the first paper money in America. 1753 — Louis Belcourt, Chevalier de Kerlerec, arrived to take over the Louisiana Colony. Kerlerec (1704–1770) was the governor of the French colony of Louisiana from 1753 to 1763. After the former governor, Pierre François de Rigaud, Marquis de Vaudreuil-Cavagnal, was promoted to the post of Governor of New France, Kerlerec, a naval officer originally from Quimper, France with twenty-five years of service, was chosen to replace him. Kerlerec's administration suffered due to lack of support from the French government, which was immersed in the French and Indian War. Kerlerec took precautions to defend the colony from a possible British attack by erecting a palisade around New Orleans, rebuilding the battery at English Turn and anchoring an old ship at the mouth of the Mississippi River which could be sunk to keep out any English ships which tried to enter. However, Kerlerec's request for ...
Oconee County takes its name from the Cherokee word "Ae-quo-nee" meaning "land beside the water." Oconee was a local Cherokee town that was situated on the main British/Cherokee trading path between Charleston and the Mississippi River in the early 18th century. Its geographic position later placed it at the intersection of the trading path and the Cherokee treaty boundary of 1777. In 1792, a frontier outpost was built by the SC State Militia near the town site and was named Oconee Station.

On January 24, 2014, the Huffington Post published this list of "10 Places Every American Should See". I love lists, and so I made my own. And it is *way* better than theirs. I wasn't able to limit my list to just 10. 30 Places Every American Should See According to Me My list is intended to cover a variety of places that promote the best sense about the nation's diverse cultures, identities, indigenous peoples, histories, conflicts, religions, arts, musics, landscapes, wildlife and natural resources, and endangered environments. -Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde National Park -Manhattan (Lower East Side) and Ellis Island -Yellowstone National Park, America's first National Park -Route of the Freedom Riders (take a Greyhound Bus, if possible) (add the Edmund Pettus Bridge and Selma Highway between Selma and Montgomery, Alabama) -New Orleans French Quarter, Tremé and the Mississippi River -The Black Hills, Devils Tower, Sioux Nations and Wounded Knee -Serpent Mound and the Great Earthworks of Ohio -Crater L ...

Michigan, Happy 177th Birthday. Michigan Listeni/ˈmɪʃɨɡən/ is a state in the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. The name Michigan is the French form of the Ojibwa word mishigamaa, meaning "large water" or "large lake".[2][b] Michigan is the 9th most populous of the 50 United States, with the 11th most extensive total area (the largest state by total area east of the Mississippi River[c]). Its capital is Lansing, and the largest city is Detroit. Michigan is the only state to consist of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula, to which the name Michigan was originally applied, is often noted to be shaped like a mitten.

The two peninsulas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge. The state has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world, being bounded by four of the five Great La ...

Our History Kersey Funeral Home - 60 Years of Service Kersey Funeral Home, once a privately owned home and one of the largest in Auburndale, Florida, was built in 1913 at a cost of $7,500. This home was built for Mr. Mikell Baynard, a local businessman, rancher and citrus grower of the times. As the story goes, Mr. Baynard and his wife Nettie wanted a larger house than an acquaintance of theirs at the time, so they constructed an estate on 7.5 acres of citrus groves overlooking Lake Stella. The home consisted of 19 original rooms and eight fireplaces, each with a unique mantle. The huge pillars on the front of the building were brought down the Mississippi River and across the Gulf of Mexico. They were hoisted into place on the wrap-a-round porch. Mr. Bay . ...

I am an Italian American. My roots are deep in ancient soil, drenched by the Mediterranean sun and watered by pure streams from snow-capped mountains. I am enriched by thousands of years of culture. My hands are those of the mason, the artist, the man of soil.

One of my church members told me a startling fact: Did you know the Mississippi River in central United States wants to relocate? It does--and drastically so! Over its history, the River has changed course hundreds of time, gone through entirely different states than its present course. As you can…

So, where would you like to see an outdoor NHL game? First, we have a local minor league baseball and hockey team where I live. The baseball stadium is along the Mississippi River where in the winter bald eagles fly freely. That would be a great venue. But to the outdoor sites for an NHL outdoor game: Miami, an auto speedway (Bristol, Daytona, or perhaps Indinapolis), Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Northern Alaska, Wembley Stadium in London, Colisium in Rome, a secret location for our troops abroad, and Mile High Stadium in Denver. Where would you wish?
Such a great day. Hit the gym early with Jay and took Charlee for a morning walk. Gorgeous drive up to Principia College along the Mississippi River to watch Gabs play ball. Our tired Bug came along even though she was running on 4 hours sleep. She had a lock in Friday night- but she promised her Gabs she'd be there. Needless to say I was a pillow for most of the game. Saw about 6 eagles along the river on the way home. Such a great site! Witnessed a cupcake hoarding by Kate which made me laughed until we both had tears. Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends tonight to celebrate both their Birthdays. Happy Saturday everyone
Well, they're easily confused. as both are west of the Mississippi River.

So let’s give the left everything they want…….then what. The problem with progressivism is “So now we have everything we want….now what. So for the sake of discussion let’s give them everything they want. The country will now be divided down the middle. Right down the Mississippi River. Texas however will be in the right coast, because they would just secede if they weren’t with the right. Now let’s examine what each society will look like. The left coast will require no military as they will become part of the one world government, the new world order. The UN troops can patrol the country with their AR15s as none of the citizens will have guns. Each citizen for their own safety and security can go through multiple checkpoints all day long to ensure they are safe and secure. All citizens will be encouraged to keep track of their neighbors and report anyone with individual thought to the committee. The UN troops will remove them for the collective good. Any personal items can be c ...
