• November 12, 1996 Nicodemus, Kansas, the only remaining western community established by African Americans, was designated a National Historic Site. The first settlers arrived in Nicodemus on June 18, 1877. The town was named for an individual that came to America on a slave ship and later purchased his freedom. Formerly enslaved people in the south were encouraged to settle in Nicodemus. The town was portrayed as a place for African Americans to establish Black self-governance. By 1880, Nicodemus had a population of almost 500, a bank, two hotels, three churches, a newspaper, a drug store, and three general stores. However in 1888, the Union Pacific Railroad bypassed Nicodemus and established an extension six miles away and across the river. Businesses moved to the new extension and Nicodemus began to experience a long gradual decline. The decline was accelerated by the 1929 depression and the severe droughts from 1932 to 1934. By 1935, the town was reduced to a population of 76 people. Today, approx ...

Board of Education’s National Historic Site to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the historic Supreme Court decision. Let us all remember those who fought to end racial segregation in our schools and Rev. Oliver Brown and his family, who were the champions in this cause to move our nation forward.

On 10 May 1869, the ceremonial "Golden Spike" was driven at Promontory Summit, Utah, completing the TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD across the United States. Built mainly by the Central Pacific's Chinese workers and the Union Pacific's Irishmen, the TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD covered 1,907 miles (3,069 km) between Sacramento, California, and Omaha, Nebraska, where it joined existing rail lines and transformed the settlement of the American West. Today, the GOLDEN SPIKE NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE, located at Promontory Summit, preserves the site and shares the stories of the people who built the two railroads and helped forge the destiny of the nation.

Tri-State Meeting May 15th presentation: Chatham One hundred years ago the new brick railroad station at Chatham, New Jersey, opened for business, part of the Lackawanna Railroad's extensive line relocation and grade separation projects of that era. The citizens of Chatham are celebrating that anniversary with a series of special events, centering on a June 14th celebration at the Chatham Train Station. Chatham resident and "Chatham Train Centennial" project leader Len Resto, with Helen Ann Rosenfeld, will join us on May 15th with a photos, postcards and historical documents to illustrate the colorful history of Chatham, while long-time Tri-State friend Gerry Geisler will share artifacts and hardware from his extensive Lackawanna collection. This is a rare showing, and the only presentation like this one related to the Chatham Train Centennial.

*Update on wireless (Wi-Fi) Internet access in our parks Many things have been said about the possibility of providing Wi-Fi Internet access in our national parks and historic sites. That is why we would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight: Parks Canada is indeed considering the possibility of offering this service in some national parks and national historic sites. This idea, still in development, is in response to visitor demand. Without compromising the experience of visitors wishing to disconnect from their everyday life, these hotspots located, for example, at serviced campground loops or visitor centres, could make it easier to plan a trip, share beautiful images taken at our sites or even do some work for those who wish or need to do so. As of this summer, we are thinking of offering 25 to 50 hotspots in 15 or 20 parks or historic sites. This service will be entirely included in your entry fees. We also want to reassure you: neither the backcountry nor wilderness will be covere ...

Akicita (ah-kee-chee-dah) is the Lakota word for Warrior and is the name we gave the Hoka Hey mascot. Akicita joined the Hoka Hey family in 2010 when it was presented to us by a Veteran that we sponsored through the Sponsor a Veteran program. Rider Barry Goldweber (Bear), was the last rider to cross the finish line in Homer, AK; arriving there on the 8th of July after spending 18 days on the road! Until recently, this extraordinary expression of gratitude was sitting on a shelf in Jim’s man cave. And while being seen and appreciated by us is nice, it was not what a true Hoka Hey warrior is meant to do. So, the time came for Akicita to hit the road… Traveling first to Milwaukee with Jeff Kohn (was just the beginning of his adventure. From there, it has been through 27(?) states by 10 Hoka Hey Challengers. It has deep sea diving on the west coast, has visited numerous National Historic sites and met some top notch people along the way! Traveling by bike, Akicita will continue to venture cross countr ...

Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a Christian minister and political activist who proposed non-violent social change anchored in dignity, sensitivity and respect in the struggle for rights for black Americans. His legacy is evident through his numerous contributions to national and international peace, recognizing that our strength lies in our diversity. Dr. King had great faith in the power of everyday people to know in their hearts what is right, and to seek a more peaceful and equitable society through non-violent social change. Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1964 for his nonviolent stance against racial inequality; posthumously, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977, and the Congressional Gold Medal in 2004. His 17-minute “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963, where Dr. King called for racial equality and an end to discrimination, and is considered the defining moment of the American Civil R ...

Great time today as the judge of the Tell-tale trial at the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site. We had a big jury (around 25), so I'm not surprised they came back with a no-decision. Hung jury. Although I am told they were leaning Not Guilty on the grounds of insanity. We'll be doing this trial again at other locations this year. So stay tuned. Thank you so much to the NPS for having us at the Poe House and especially Helen Mckenna (the accused) and our two lawyers Meredith Kahn for the defense and Herb Moskovitz as the prosecution. Also, thanks Brian Mengini, our foreman of the jury. Thanks to all the people who came out to wish Edgar a happy birthday today.
Time for storytelling so sit down by the fireside and listen. Through out my years I have always associated with the elders, any elders. One thing that comes to mind is they emphasize on total "Respect" for people, elders, animals, environment etc. When I worked at the Fort St. James National Historic Site the busses would come in early September to bring the school children for a tour at he park. The story I passed on to the children were told by the elders of whom are gone now.I would take a small bench and sit on it and gather the kids and tell them this story about respecting animals. One day some kids were playing and making loud noises when an elder approached to find out what was happening, to his surprise he saw the kids were chasing a rabbit that had been skinned alive. He grabbed the sticks from them and chased them back to the village. There he warned the people that famine would take palce and told them to move away, after telling them what the kids had done. The people did move away and food ...

Did you know that you can support built heritage simply by sending your mail through Toronto’s First Post Office? If you are too far to do business at the counter you can still buy stamps or other services by telephone. This museum, charity and National Historic Site keeps its doors open as an authorized dealership of Canada Post. As Canada Post moves to cut services across Canada it is harder for this lovely outlet to survive. The post office offers the full range of CPC services, but here they help to finance museum programs such as education, research and collections care. In addition, your mail can be made visually arresting with commemorative stamps and one of our pictorial cancellations. For a small additional cost, we can even add a wax seal! Dating back to British colonial times (1833), the post-office building is one of few left standing from the old town of York. Individuals and organizations can rent old-fashioned post-office boxes once used by the likes of William Lyon Mackenzie and Egerton ...

Mathieu Da Costa is one of the most fascinating (and elusive) figures in early Canadian history. We don't know a lot about him. But we do know enough to know that he qualifies as the first Black known to have visited Canada. Da Costa was a free Black African who in the early 1600s was employed as a translator by French and Dutch traders and explorers. It was not unusual for Africans to act as translators for Europeans as it had been going on for 100 years before Champlain's time as Europeans explored their way down the African coast. This explains why Da Costa spoke French, Dutch, and Portuguese. But it is a mystery how Da Costa knew how to be an interpreter with the First Nations of America. He might have used "pidgin" Basque (a mixture of Basque and local), commonly used for trade in the Americas.

We're so excited for our friends at the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site! Renovations of the home have began! Did you know that Dr. Woodson and Dr. Bethune were good friends? In fact she often visited his home and was one of the few people that called him by his first name. Can you imagine Dr. Bethune showing up asking to speak with Carter? Too funny! Again, CONGRATULATIONS! This is just what we needed to go into the start of Black History Month next month. I'm sure our beloved Founder of Black History is proud.

COUNTDOWN 3 TO 65 @ FAIRMONT BANFF SPRINGS. We were greeted by name at check-in “Bonjour Mr Fortunato”; a young lady knew us at Fairmont Tremblant. Others remembered us as “You’re Showtime”. It was flattering, and then to receive an early birthday cheesecake, fresh strawberries, chocolate, and mineral water (someone knows what I like). Banff Springs with its Christmas décor has such an international aura with tourists from all over the world, and a group of 200 travel agents from Germany. The most interesting was a private tour with Ryan Wilson. I was shown the Royal Suite where Queen Elizabeth and celebrities stay; the first guest was Arnold Swarzenegger. This room is $5,000/night. I saw fossils in the staircases of dinosaurs from 450 million years ago; 4 Bronze doors weighing a total of 8,000 lbs of the Alhambra ballroom worth 2 million dollars (we held our convention in this ballroom in 2010); the Cascade Ballroom with the only original oak floor from 1928 (our competition in 2010 was in th ...

★(¯´*•.¸ ★* CALI UPDATE! *★¸.•*´¯)★ Cali has landed with her flying angel, Shelley, at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport at approximately 1216 EST. They are currently preparing for landing at Atlanta. From there, they have a small layover, and will be departing Atlanta at 145 PM EST bound for Los Angeles Airport. They will be on Delta Flight 1855, due at LAX around 326 PM PST. Some interesting facts about Atlanta: Peachtree Street is not named for a peach tree of any sort. Many of Atlanta's corridors follow the paths created by the Creek and Cherokee Indian nations who inhabited the area until the early 19th Century. A large Creek settlement was called Standing Pitch Tree after a tall lone tree. Over time, the "pitch tree" became "peach tree. Atlanta is the only city in North America destroyed by a fire as an act of war. Following the city's surrender to General Sherman in 1864, only 400 structures remained standing. Today, the city's symbol is the Phoenix, a legendary ...

Today, I was in Hamilton, Ontario for the Hamilton and Scourge Memorial Event at Dundurn Castle, a National Historic Site. Although the weather did not cooperate [it was raining all day], there were over 100 people who came to see "On The Water: The Hamilton and Scourge Commemoration Ceremony", a film by Peter Rowe, edited by Mark Arcieri. The film, shot aboard the Coast Guard cutter, The Griffon, on September 4th, 2013. Interspersed between segments of the official ceremony were 'glimpses' of scenes from "Shipwrecked on A Great Lake" which is still in post production. One scene in particular was so dramatic.watching Ned Myers [played by actor, Jack Manser] and George Turnblatt [played by actor, Tayo Jacob] fighting the elements while on the Scourge in the huge storm of August 8, 1813. After the film, I went to see a very realistic exhibition called 'Living in the Field', showing tent accommodation for officers [private tent with all kinds of accoutrements] and another tent for up to six common soldiers. ...

"Freedom is not a gift which can be enjoyed save by those shown themselves worthy of it." Theodore Roosevelt "Teddy's Fourth of July" Painting by Mort Kuntsler of Oyster Bay Mort Künstler’s Comments What an extraordinary person was Theodore Roosevelt! And how special it is for me to paint him in our hometown of Oyster Bay, New York. Living in Oyster Bay means living in the shadow of the exceptional “T.R.,” whose famous Sagamore Hill home is a National Historic Site. In all of the thousands of paintings I’ve done, only two have featured Theodore Roosevelt – until now. Teddy’s Fourth of July is my third, and the only one set in Oyster Bay. So this has been a rare and remarkable treat for me. For many years, my friend and Oyster Bay neighbor, Roger Bahnik, encouraged me to do a painting of Theodore Roosevelt in Oyster Bay. I just always had too many other projects underway, especially Civil War paintings. Finally, Roger told me, “Roosevelt is our Oyster Bay President; you are Oyster Bay’s ar ...
