Juneteenth and Emancipation Day Celebrations Creek Freedmen Celebrated Emancipation Day on August 4th Emancipation Day was celebrated on August 4th because that was the date in 1865 when the Loyal Creek Council drew up a "law" that declared African Creeks full citizens of the Creek Nation, entitled to full citizenship rights which included the right to share in any distribution of tribal funds and gave African Creeks full "rights to the soil." They carried the same spirit and idea with them into the Ft. Smith Council during the fall of 1865 and the 1866 Treaty negotiations and refused to retreat one inch from this "sacred pledge" made to the Creek freed people--even though the Confederate Creeks, the U.S. Treaty commissioners and President Andrew Johnson tried to get them to compromise on their promise of full citizenship and equality for the African Creeks. These provisions were contained in the earlier 1863 Treaty negotiated by the Loyal Creeks with the federal government at the Sauk-Fox Reservation in ...

The Reconstruction Acts put America under martial law in 1867. They created military districts in the South which were governed by generals. These acts have never been repealed so they are still active to this day. The 14th Amendment was passed shortly after. President Andrew Johnson tried to veto the acts and wrote this: "...Such a power has not been wielded by any Monarch in England for more than five hundred years. In all that time no people who speak the English language have borne such servitude. It reduces the whole population of the ten States - all persons, of every color, sex, and condition, and every stranger within their limits - to the most abject and degrading slavery. No master ever had a control so absolute over the slaves as this bill gives to the military officers over both white and colored persons... ...I come now to a question which is, if possible, still more important. Have we the power to establish and carry into execution a measure like this? I answer, 'Certainly not', if we derive ...
Just One Vote If you ever begin to think, “I really don’t matter,” or if you think your church attendance on a Sunday night or Wednesday will go unnoticed (“Nobody knows if I’m there. I’m just one person”), consider the value of “one” How much is one vote worth? In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. In 1649, one vote caused Charles I of England to be executed. In 1845, one vote brought Texas to the Union. In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Johnson from impeachment. In 1876, one vote changed France from a monarchy to a republic. In 1876, one vote gave Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency of the United States. In 1933, one vote gave Adolph Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party. In 1960, one vote change in each precinct in Illinois would have denied John F. Kennedy the Presidency (March Fang Eu, California Secretary of State, 1984). One person is important because the church is a body that needs all its parts functioning to be healthy (t Cor. 1212-31). III choose to b ...
The tragic story of Dr. Samuel Mudd, who in 1865 was sentenced to a lifetime of hard labor at the American penal colony of Fort Jefferson, was previously filmed as Prisoner of Shark Island (1936) and Hellgate (1957). Made for television, The Ordeal of Dr. Mudd stars Dennis Weaver as the unfortunate Mudd, a Maryland medico whose only "crime" was to set the broken leg of a mud-caked stranger--who turned out to be John Wilkes Booth. Arrested on a charge of treason and complicity in the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Mudd is at first sentenced to hang, but the military court decides to be "merciful," consigning Mudd to life imprisonment on "America's Devil's Island" in the Dry Tortugas. He endures the cruelties of the sadistic commandant and the condemnation of the public at large, until his selfless courage during a hellish epidemic enables him to win the sympathy of his fellow citizens. Ultimately, Mudd is pardoned by President Andrew Johnson, though it would be many years before his name wa ...

Let’s play a game. You guess who used to work at the Gap? Kanye West. Guess, who used to sell hot dogs at the Mall? Eva Mendes. I heard President Andrew Johnson was a tailor. George Washington was a surveyor. Herbert Hoover was an engineer. Theodore Roosevelt was a rancher, and President Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer. Hugh Jackman who plays Wolverine was a clown, but look who’s laughing now? You know, what I noticed about successful people. Successful people take a course of action, which coincides with their belief or passion. Put your hand up, if you work at 9 to 5 or 5 to 9, or just any job, which you don’t enjoy, but takes up half your time.

Thaddeus Stevens (1792–1868) was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania and one of the leaders of the Radical Republican faction of the Republican Party during the 1860s. A fierce opponent of slavery and discrimination against African-Americans, Stevens sought to secure their rights during Reconstruction, in opposition to President Andrew Johnson. After serving in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Stevens was elected to Congress in 1848 as a Whig. His activities in opposition to slavery cost him votes and he did not seek reelection in 1852. Stevens joined the newly formed Republican Party, and was elected to Congress again in 1858. Stevens argued that slavery should not survive the American Civil War; he was frustrated by the slowness of President Abraham Lincoln to support his position. As chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee during the war, he played a major part in the war's financing. After Lincoln's assassination in April 1865, Stevens came into conflict ...

BETTER OR BITTER Few people liked President Andrew Johnson. On speaking tours, they booed him and applauded his rival, Ulysses S. Grant. When the election came, President Johnson was voted out and Grant took office. The outgoing chief executive was so bitter, he refused to ride in the carriage with Grant to the inauguration and did not attend the ceremonies. However, much to his dismay, he hurt himself by these actions rather than the new president. Today, we read about such bitterness in God's Word. James knew bitterness would destroy the soul. Therefore, he took this occasion to write against it as he was inspired by the Holy Ghost. He knew Christ's command to forgive seventy times seven allowed no place for bitterness and strife. For centuries, scoffers have ridiculed the advice of Jesus to love your enemies as being impractical, idealistic, and absurd. Now doctors are joining ministers in saying the only way to maintain good physical and spiritual health is to obey this command and not let bitterness ...
25 secret societies Ancient Order of Hibernians The Ancient Order of Hibernians was organized in 1890 and is a fraternal circle of Irish Roman Catholics who uphold the values of friendship, charity and oneness among its members. This organization has historically been primarily devoted to protecting Catholic churches from anti-Catholic forces, and assisting Irish Catholic immigrants to get into America, especially those who faced discrimination or harsh coal mining working conditions.24 National Grange Oliver Hudson Kelley organized the National Grange in 1867 following the order given to him by President Andrew Johnson to visit the southern United States and identify the war-ravaged areas that needed rehabilitation.

Today, this secret society uses the Masonic Fraternity as its model but accommodates both men and women.23 The United Ancient Order of Druids The Ancient Order of Druids ( ...

March 2000 Volume 18 Number 3 Truth About the 14th Amendment Thomas J. DiLorenzo Legal scholar Gene Healy has made a powerful argument in favor of abolishing the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution. When a fair vote was taken on it in 1865, in the aftermath of the War for Southern Independence, it was rejected by the Southern states and all the border states. Failing to secure the necessary three-fourths of the states, the Republican Party, which controlled Congress, passed the Reconstruction Act of 1867 which placed the entire South under military rule. The purpose of this, according to one Republican congressman, was to coerce Southern legislators to vote for the amendment "at the point of a bayonet." President Andrew Johnson called this tactic "absolute despotism," the likes of which had not been exercised by any British monarch "for more than 500 years." For his outspokenness Johnson was impeached by the Republican Congress. The South eventually voted to ratify the amendment, after which two N ...
Hobbs' American History Moment On this day in American History in 1865, Union General William Tecumseh Sherman issued Field Order 15, a directive that would divide 400,000 acres of confiscated Confederate territory among 18,000 newly freed black men and women. The directive would become popularly known as 40 Acres and a Mule, however, the plan was nixed later that year by President Andrew Johnson, who suceeded Abraham Lincoln following his assasination in April of that year and who was a native of Tennessee who remained loyal to the Union but in the end analysis, was loathe to redistribute the land wealth of the then vanquished rebellious Confederates.
U.S President Andrew Johnson had no formal education. His wife taught him reading, writing and math.
