Lest We forget, The Trail of Tears of Indigenous People and Enslaved Afrikans... The Trail of Tears commonly refers to a series of forced relocations of Native American nations in the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw Nations, who chose not to assimilate with American society, from their ancestral homelands in the southeastern U.S. to an area west of the Mississippi River that had been designated as Indian Territory. Native Americans who chose to stay and assimilate were allowed to become citizens in their states and of the U.S. The phrase "Trail of Tears" originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route to their destinations, and many died, including 2,000-6,000 of the 16,543 relocated Cherokee. European Americans and African American freedmen and slaves also participated in the Chicka ...

An off-duty police officer in Newark, NJ, had a pistol-shaped cigarette lighter which he had been using all night while drinking at a local tavern.

The 1811 German Coast Uprising was a revolt of black slaves in parts of the Territory of Orleans on January 8–10, 1811. The uprising occurred on the east bank of the Mississippi River in what are now St. John the Baptist and St. Charles Parishes, Louisiana. While the slave insurgency was the largest in US history, the rebels killed only two white men. Confrontations with militia and executions after trial killed ninety-five black people. Between 64 and 125 enslaved men marched from sugar plantations near present-day LaPlace on the German Coast toward the city of New Orleans. They collected more men along the way. Some accounts claimed a total of 200–500 slaves participated. During their two-day, twenty-mile march, the men burned five plantation houses (three completely), several sugarhouses, and crops. They were armed mostly with hand tools. White men led by officials of the territory formed militia companies to hunt down and kill the insurgents. Over the next two weeks, white planters and officials i ...

History Siouan language speakers may have originated in the lower Mississippi River region and then migrated to or originated in the Ohio Valley. They were agriculturalists and may have been part of the Mound Builder civilization during the 9th–12th centuries CE. In the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Dakota-Lakota-Nakota speakers lived in the upper Mississippi Region in present day Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas. Conflicts with Anishnaabe and Cree peoples pushed the Lakota west onto the Great Plains in the mid- to late-17th century. Early Lakota history is recorded in their Winter counts (Lakota: waníyetu wówapi), pictorial calendars painted on hides or later recorded on paper. The Battiste Good winter count records Lakota history back to 900 CE, when White Buffalo Calf Woman gave the Lakota people the White Buffalo Calf Pipe. Around 1730, Cheyenne people introduced the Lakota to horses, called šuŋkawakaŋ ("dog [of] power/mystery/wonder"). After their adoption of horse culture, La ...

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Martha Hamilton considers her sister Beth to be a real-life "gone girl." On June 13, 1965, two-year-old Elizabeth Ann Gill, known to her family as Beth, was playing with several of her brothers and sisters in her family's yard in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Beth was the youngest of ten children. That Sunday, Hamilton and another sister were driving home with their parents from a short trip out of town, having left Beth in the care of her older siblings. Suddenly, Beth vanished. There's been no word from her since. Ironically, the small Mississippi River town where Beth disappeared so many years ago is the same town where parts of "Gone Girl," a hit movie about a missing woman, was recently filmed. Though Beth is the longest-missing child registered in the state, Hamilton said her family still is affected by her unsolved disappearance nearly five decades later. "No matter what people say, you don't heal," Hamilton told 48 Hours' Crimesider. "It's like a scar you can re-open if you're n ...

A little recap of my recent road trip and my random thoughts: -Everyone should DRIVE across country at least once. You see so many beautiful things and meet so many neat people along the way. -Louisiana stinks.the whole state smells like funky water. The Cajuns don't play about speed limits either...I have a driving award to prove that. -Mississippi is just like it's name.LLLOOONG. The highlight of Mississippi was crossing the Mississippi River-the bridge is awesome. -Texas is HUGE. It takes 3 hours or more to travel to any city from another city. The beach is beautiful-dark brown sand. The roads suck-they don't have pot holes...they have ditches. The people who live in Texas are more friendly than people in Georgia if you can believe that. Southern hospitality is awesome...especially when you are so far from home. -Seeing your first born transformed from a boy with no ambitions and no goals into a man with so much respect and drive is amazing. -Driving 15 hours straight is not fun...but doable.

A “tall and smooth people”? Some have pointed to Isaiah 18 which speaks of a peo­ple “tall and smooth” who are “feared far and wide.” The passage further states that this is a “powerful nation whose land the rivers divide.” The chapter ends by stating that the people of this nation will bring “a gift of homage” to the Lord when He returns to reign from Mt. Zion. Because these verses speak of a powerful nation whose land is divided by a great river, some have jumped to the conclusion that the nation is the United States since it is divided by the Mississippi River. But the open­ing verses of this chapter indicate it is speak­ing of “Cush,” the ancient name of Ethiopia. At the time Isaiah wrote this passage, Ethiopia was a part of the Egyp­tian empire and the river referred to is undoubtedly the Nile. A “village” of Tarshish? Probably one of the most popular passages where peo­ple claim to have found the U.S. is in Ezekiel 38 where the pro­phet describes an invasion of Isra ...

(1) short story from (THE TWEAKER) A time traveler. Steamboat I awoke on the East bank of the Mississippi River; a gambling boat steamed past with the giant wheel splashing and churning the river water as it passed. Mosquitoes started on me the first second that I arrived. Of course, I had no matches or anything else except my clothes and fortunately some boots. It was dusk dark, and I figured it was in the mid-nineteenth century. I stomped around and found some pieces of lighter wood stumps and dead tree parts. I had enough wood for a fire when and if I could find some flint rock or meet up with someone with a light. Now, it was dark and still with no fire, I sat upon the white sand bar and looked around as the moon shined across the river. Suddenly a constant splashing sound became in hearing range, and as it continued to get closer, I stood up trying to figure out what and where it was. I heard some heavy panting, and the splashing stopped as a figure of a man came floating up to the sand bar whe ...

OUIJA board and HALLOWEEN -- a deadly combination. The Hardin farmhouse in southern Illinois near the university town of McAbee and the Reuter farmhouse near the Mississippi River in west central Illinois may not be haunted by ghosts in the traditional sense. Nor is the campus hotel on university property in northeast China. However, they are the sites of some deadly visitations by age-old entities that appear to be much more threatening than ghosts. The Ouija Board party in the Hardin farmhouse, which only two people out of the five people in attendance have so far survived, is where it started in DARK NEIGHBORHOODS. Dr. Harper Paget also encountered these creatures that have been enemies of his ancestors for centuries on the university campus — in the hotel where he was living while he taught there — in DARK CORRIDORS. The question is . . . what will happen at the Reuter farmhouse located in the Warrick Bottoms near the small town of Warrick where he and Corey Braedon grew up? Find that out in the D ...

"Rosie" Recorded by Alan Lomax (c.1947) "Neither SLAVERY nor involuntary servitude, except AS A PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, SHALL EXIST WITHIN THE United States." ~ Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution "I had to face that here were the people that everyone else regarded as the dregs of society, dangerous human beings, brutalized and from them came the music which I thought was the finest thing I’d ever hear coming out of my country. These people were poetic and musical and they had something terribly important to say. These songs belong to the musical tradition which Africans brought to the New World, but they are also as American as the Mississippi River." ~ Alan Lomax This work chant was recorded at the Mississippi State Penitentiary (MSP), also known as Parchman Farm named for the plantation owners that originally owned the property.

Moderate risk now extends east into Alabama with slight risk covering the entire state. Line of severe storms continues to march east across the Mississippi Valley and is approaching the Mississippi River. Tornado watches are in effect from Illinois to Louisiana. These watches will continue to be extended east through the afternoon and evening. We will also be watching for individual cells developing ahead of the main line. Damaging winds are the greatest threat for Alabama, but some tornadoes are possible as well.

Frankie Ford was born in Gretna, Louisiana (across the Mississippi River from New Orleans), on August 4, 1939. His adoptive parents named him Francis Guzzo. He is nicknamed the "New Orleans Dynamo." Though he was good-looking enough to be considered a teen idol, Frankie Ford sang with as much grit as any of the Crescent City's most legendary Rhythm & Blues vocalists. His sole top forty hit was the million-selling "Sea Cruise," which hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1959. The pre-recorded backing track was by Huey "Piano" Smith & His Clowns. Ford still lives in Gretna and spends about 200 days a year on tour.

The bowfin, commonly called dogfish in the Midwest, is truly a one of a kind fish. It is scientifically known as Amia calva, which is derived from the Greek, Amia meaning fish and calva meaning smooth. The common name of dogfish comes from their impressive set of very sharp conical teeth; much like a tyrannosaurus rex. The bowfin could logically be called a Jurassic Park fish. They are the sole survivor of a group of fish dating back 150 million years to the Jurassic Age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. They are factually a living fossil. Bowfins are native to North America, common in the Eastern U.S. and southern Ontario and Quebec. They are found from the Mississippi River drainage east to the St. Lawrence River, south to the Gulf Coast, from east Texas to all of Florida. In the U.P., they can be found in the Menominee River, in Lake Huron off Cedarville, and the Lake Superior basin only in the St Louis and Middle Rivers in Wisconsin. We are at the northern limit of its range. However, many LP lakes hav ...
ATTENTION SUMNER BULLDOGS WORLDWIDE.(READ POST) Dear Supporter: The Charles Sumner High School has been around since 1875 and has been iconic in the St. Louis community for over 140 years. Historically, Sumner is the first African American high school west of the Mississippi River. Sumner has produced a plethora of local and national leaders in nearly every field of endeavor. Including legendary singers CHUCK BERRY AND TINA TURNER. TENNIS LEGEND ARTHUR ASHE, COMEDIAN AND SOCIAL ACTIVIST *** GREGORY, OPERA DIVA GRACE BUMBRY, PLUS 32 TUSKEGEE AIRMEN. Sumner’s strength has endured partly due to their Alumni Association, with thousands of members, both locally and worldwide. Perhaps you may be unaware that over the past years, Sumner’s enrollment has declined dramatically. Plus, It’s recent academic record has placed Sumner in the category of a “low-performing” school. These are two major contributing factors towards Sumner’s decline. (enrollment and low performing) - Sumner’s historical and le ...
Trying to stomach NCIS New Orleans. I always eat andouille sausage with remoulade sauce, plus I go for a run on the West Bank underneath the Mississippi River Bridge when I live in the lower garden district. I've always liked Scott Bakula, but that Texas, Mississippi, Wisconsin accent just doesn't sound like a local. I hope it's successful for New Orleans sake, but just bloody painful.
Have been invited to participate in a gratitude challenge for 7 days. Today is my first day, here goes. 1) I am grateful for my husband, Rich. 2). I am grateful for my smart, handsome, funny Son, Daniel. The day he was born was the happiest day of my life. Second happiest day: when I caught Keith Richards guitar pic at a Rolling Stones concert. 3). I am grateful for the blind date, on a Mississippi River boat, those many years ago that brought Rich and I together.

Let's just get to a daily thought I comprehend 4outta7 days of the week? Nephlium/Giants of Ancient times ago? Who were they? Where they from? How'd they get here? Where'd they live? Were they smart? Have they all died off? Who's older Man or Nephlium? How big were they? So so so many questions I've asked and looked for answers. Are the answers I've come across the holy grail of truths? No, I'am not a 33rd degree Freemason Prince Holder of the Sacred Secret!! Lol No that at this middle aged balding Hoosier!!

In my 50th year of life I; celebrated 20 years with my wife, had bariatric surgery, lost over 125 lbs, watched my son turn 18, graduate high school and start college. Visited my birthplace, the towns where I grew up and went to college along with relatives in all those places. Saw the St Louis arch, the Mississippi River, the Liberty Bell, Times Square and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Visited 7 major league ballparks and met Pete Rose. Traveled over 4, 400 miles through 18 states in two weeks, grew a beard and came home to my best girl, who waited for me. What a year!! I’m not sure my 51st year could ever match up but I look forward to what it brings.

The Battle of Fallen Timbers (August 20, 1794) was the final battle of the Northwest Indian War, a struggle between American Indian tribes affiliated with the Western Confederacy, including minor support from the British, against the United States for control of the Northwest Territory (an area bounded on the south by the Ohio River, on the west by the Mississippi River, and on the northeast by the Great Lakes). The battle, which was a decisive victory for the United States, ended major hostilities in the region until Tecumseh's War and the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811 The Ohio River boundary line established with Britain by the Treaty of Fort Stanwix in 1768 recognized certain lands as belonging to the Native American nations. After the American Revolution, however, the United States maintained that the Indian nations no longer owned the lands in the Ohio area, citing an article in the Treaty of Paris of 1783 in which Britain agreed to cede the lands owned by indigenous nations. Native Americans rejected ...

I HAVE SEVERAL ARTICLES THAT CAME OUT OF THE PUBLICATION FROM THE KANSAS STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF CLARK COUNTY - I'll post more in the future/. The Story of Henry Mull, Sr. [from “Notes on Early Clark County, Kansas. By the Clark County Chapter of the Kansas State Historical Society; Volume I; Number 1; July 1939 – August 1940.] One of the early Clark County pioneers was Henry Mull, who came to Kansas in 1884 from Missouri, making the trip with his wife and four sons, John, Will, Alvin and Frank. The trip was made in two covered wagons and one buggy followed by the very necessary milk cow. The winter of 1884 was spent in Harper County Kansas, where Mr. Mull traded one of his teams for land. In the spring of 1885 the trek was continued and the family arrived in Clark County in June. Mrs. Mull’s health improved so rapidly that Mr. Mull sent word back to Missouri that they were establishing themselves permanently in Clark County and to sell his holdings there. Mrs. Mull’s health however, did no .. ...

A friend gave me this point and claimed he found it on a gravel bar on the Mississippi River. Is it possible for a point to actually be tumbled so much that it loses almost all of its defining characteristic flake marks? Definitely flint, definitely knapped, but has been very smoothed out across the entire surface... not intentionally ground down by human hands though. Thoughts?
