‪I was able to go to the Georgia Archives yesterday and dig through some good stuff!  3 big boxes of primary documents and a stack of books.  Not enough time! Can’t wait to share some of the goodies with you! #rosenwaldschools #unitygrove #sschats #historynerd‬
Look closely and you'll see that this is no ordinary leather-bound book. This is the Taschenbuch, or book camera, created by Dr Rudolph Krügener in 1888. This disguised camera, which became popular in Britain, France, and the United States, was not designed for the purpose of spying, despite popular belief, but as a novelty for the general public.  Andrew B. Dobbs created the most famous disguised camera in 1892 with his Scovill Book Camera, which had the appearance of three leather covered books encircled in a strap. It is estimated that fewer than 30 of these cameras were ever sold.

Today is Anzac Day, a day of national remembrance in Australia and New Zealand. Originally created to honor the members of the Australian and New Zealand Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign during the Great War, today it commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in military service to their countries. April 25th is the anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli. Take a moment to remember the fallen of our steadfast allies down under. 🇦🇺 🇳🇿 . . .

Alfredo James Pacino was born on April 25, 1940 in Manhattan, New York City, to an Italian-American family. One of the greatest actors in all of film history, Al Pacino established himself during one of cinema's most vibrant decades, the 1970s, and has become an enduring and iconic figure in the world of American movies.
After the Challenger Space Shuttle catastrophically exploded in the skies above Cape Canaveral, Florida on January 28th 1986 and claimed the lives of all seven American astronauts onboard the spacecraft: this video footage captured in the Oval Office of the White House later that same day depicts US President Ronald Reagan's full address to the United States and to the rest of the world after the scope of the disaster became known. . . . The Challenger disaster claimed the lives of astronauts Francis R. Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Gregory Jarvis, and schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe, and it was also the first major catastrophe for the US space program since the Apollo 1 fire of February 21st 1967 which killed astronauts Virgil Grissom, Ed White and Roger B. Chaffee. The destruction of Challenger itself led to the immediate grounding of all US Space Shuttles for three years, and a similar procedure was initiated after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster of February 1st 2003.  ____________________________ #coldwarera #1986 #nasa #spaceshuttle #spaceshuttlechallenger #challengerdisaster #ushistory #americanhistory #earth #spacehistory #space #thefinalfrontier #theuniverse #cosmology #war #history #historic #historical #warhistory #historiansunion #united_historians #warphotography #warphotos #combat #soldiers #historybuff #historynerd #youcannotcensorhistory
The night before...Koningsnach (formally known as Koninginnenach or the "Nach") in The Hague. We're celebrating the night before Koningsdag our National Party because of the Kings' birthday. In 1998 it was on the 29th of April (so was every year) and it was my first time that I celebrate the Nach in the Hague. A very young, cool and new singer/songwriter that just had a few hits was the mainartist in the citycenter. Ok....stupid idea....all teenagers  from Holland came 2 the Hague 2 celebrate the Nach....🇳🇱🤣 400.000 people in the "small" centre of The Hague trying 2 see @anouk .....no words needed! I'll never forget this party and tomorrow it will be the 21th time for me to go to the Nach.

NEW MAP: Europe 1821: Greek War of Independence (22 Apr 1821) https://buff.ly/2VoOFy7 In 1814 a secret organization called the Filiki Eteria was formed to liberate Greece from centuries of Ottoman rule. The revolution began in early 1821, with rebellions in Moldavia and Wallachia (which were ruled by Greek princes). By March the revolution had spread to Greece itself, where Greek nationalists gained control of most of the country by the end of the year. #europe #history #welovemaps #map #1820s #1821 #april #april22 #austria #europeanhistory #fikilieteria #greekhistory #greekindependence #ottomanempire #eteria #moldavia #wallachia #maps #newmap #newmaps #welovehistory #19thcentury #historyteacher #historygeek #historybuff #historynerd #historyofgreece #revolutions #cartography #nationalism

I arrived in Lisbon today 🙃 First impression: lots of tiles! 🔷 Also, I’ve never been in a city before that has elevators to get you from one level to the other. Edinburgh could learn from that 😄 _______________ When I arrived this morning I learned that Portugal is celebrating a national holiday today: the Dia da Liberdade - Freedom Day.  On this day in 1974, the Carnation Revolution started in Lisbon and transformed the Portuguese regime from an authoritarian dictatorship to a democracy. The revolution was a bloodless, leftist, military-led coup with the objective to end the dictatorship of Antonio de Oliveira Salazar and Marcelo Caetano. Both dictators had ruled Portugal for almost five centuries. Whilst the government forces killed four people before surrendering, the revolution was somewhat unusual: The revolutionaries didn't resort to violence to achieve their goals. The population, holding red carnations, convinced the army not to resist and the soldiers swapped their bullets for flowers.  The revolution gave an end to the longest authoritarian regime in Western Europe. The first free elections were held one year later on April 25th, 1975. Today, the 25th of April is a public holiday and is symbolized by thousands of red carnations that everyone is wearing 🌹. _______________ #portugal #lisbon #diadaliberdade #freedomday #carnationrevolution #revolution #visitportugal #lissabon #liberty #travelgram #didyouknow #knowyourhistory #blastfromthepast #instadaily #geschichte #theworldbackthen #faktdestages #heutevor #historyoftoday #otd #historyofart  #history #historygeek #historyfacts #onthisday #otd #historynerd #education #thisdayinhistory

Today is #worldpenguinday and as a lover of all things penguin would make my #otdinhistory post about it.  This little chap was at London Zoo he was in the training pool as was still a baby and not able to join the adults.  I never used to like penguins as much as I do now. But I just find them cute, funny and fascinating little creatures. Hopefully my next tattoo will be a penguin. Would happily have one as a pet, but that will never be possible or fair for it. #onthisdayinhistory #historynerd #historydegree #worldpenguinday
What was one of the hidden motivations for the story line in #hamilton?? Fascinating conversation with @nikkywalks (Nik Walker) who now plays #aaronburr on the #broadway traveling production of #hamilton. He talks about how Lin Manuel Miranda and Tommy Kail @directorkail channeled their personal struggles and the camaraderie that went into the years of creating this show, into the writing and production of the musical we have all come to love.
The siren song of estate sales struck and I lucked out in the old book department!  Two WWI sheet musics, a vintage waffle iron, some lovely books, and even a surprise pop out valentine in one! So much fun!  I was joined in this adventure by @lvanmullem, and she also got some great things.  We came, we saw, we plundered.  #treasure #oldbooks #bibliophile #historynerd

Visiting #verdun last week .  A speciously silence lies in the atmosphere of Verdun. Nature took back the battlefields and even looks beautiful, but thousands of people died here in the first world war. If you look closer you can still see the remains . #travel #france #worldwar #history #nature #historynerd #naturephotography #historylover #naturelovers #memorial #nature_lovers #photography #war #historylesson #memorialpark #nature_seekers #gratitude #teaching #teacher #raphrednose #jofferlynn
I am loving this book. It's so fascinating about quite a unique individual. I remember growing up seeing the Napoleon & Josephine mini series with Armand Assante and always thought they had a great love story. Not so, well Napoleon wholly loved Josephine, but she did not feel the same and was not a faithful wife. She caused him a lot of heartache, but then he decided to let his eye wander too.🙄 And I love the interesting little facts like Josephine was not a beauty, but quite graceful. She was missing most of her teeth so to hide it she would always smile with her mouth closed, which only made her more alluring. #historynerd #alwayslearning #alwaysreading
Muerte en el "Yankee papa 13" Estas fotografías fueron tomadas el 31 de marzo de 1965 por el fotógrafo Larry Burrows durante una misión realizada por el helicóptero "Yankee Papa 13(YP13)" en la guerra de Vietnam. Durante la misión el helicóptero sufrió una emboscada, recibió un nutrido fuego cuando aterrizaba para evacuar tropas, y dos de los tripulantes del YP13 fueron heridos. Uno de los heridos era el copiloto, el primer teniente James Magel(se lo ve herido en piso del helicóptero) quién sufrió una herida debajo de la axila y, a pesar de que intentaron brindarle asistencia médica, falleció mientras volvían a la base.  #historiabelicamundial #historiabelica #history #historynerd #historiamilitar #warphotography #warphoto #journal #jornalist #helicoptero #vietnam #guerradevietnam #vietnam🇻🇳 #usarmy

One of Napa's many murals. This one is located on Randolph St. & was created by local artist Mikulas (Miky) Kravjansky in 1996 to celebrate Napa's history. Pictured are David Dunlap (with hat) who served as sheriff between 1889-1901, David Sterling Kyser (moustache & sideburns) who became one of the city's most admired mayors in 1907, Superior Court Judge Henry C. Gesford (white beard) who served between 1902-1920 and Lena A. Jackson surround by children who became the public School Superintendent around 1889 I believe. The mural also features the Goodman Library. #napavalley #napa #mural #streetart #napavalleyhistory #historynerd
American soldiers of the 101th Airborne Division rush past a burned-out truck in Veghel, The Netherlands. September, 1944.  Hell’s Highway 69 After their baptism in Normandy, the American 101st Airborne Division was commissioned to secure the bridges between Eindhoven and Veghel in Operation Market Garden. A total of 9 bridges over a distance of 22 kilometers. The Americans had to secure these bridges and the road between them so that the British 30th Army Corps could make the advance over this road to Nijmegen and Arnhem. At 3:00 pm on September 17, 1944, the three parachute regiments landed on the Sonse and Schijndelse Heide (heath fields), and at Heeswijk Castle. The Germans reacted quickly and fiercely in this area, which interrupted the advance several times. Hard fighting broke out for possession of this road. The Americans soon called the road Hell's Highway.  Several bridges between Eindhoven and Nijmegen were captured by the 82nd and 101st. Nowhere on the route are there as many bridges as at Veghel. The Germans, under command of Feldmaarschall Model want to destroy these vulnerable bridges to stop the allied advance to Nijmegen. The 101st met little resistance and captured most of their initial objectives by the end of 17 September. However, the demolition of the division's primary objective, a bridge over the Wilhelmina Canal at Son, delayed the capture of the main road bridge over the Maas until 20 September. Faced with the loss of the bridge at Son, the 101st unsuccessfully attempted to capture a similar bridge a few kilometers away at Best but found the approach blocked.  On September 22, 1944, the village of Havelt is attacked by the Germans of "Kampfgruppe Walther" who massively open the attack on the “Engte van Veghel" from Erp. A deliberate action by Feldmaarschall Model to break through the narrow Corridor.  Model's plan succeeds. The Germans break the Corridor at Mariaheide and at Eerde.  #history #ww2 #germany #germanhistory #worldwar
The best thing-Being able to touch the Neolithic stones up here. The Ring of Brodgar was impressive but the Stones of Stenness were the ones we liked more. No other people there and you could lay your hands on them and imagine the past.  Sad to miss out on seeing the excavations as it’s still out of season but the visit to Skara Brae was so worth the entrance fee.

Mondello is a neighborhood and tourist area of ​​Palermo that is part of the 8th district, enclosed by Monte Pellegrinoe Monte Gallo.  Detached from the city by the Parco della Favorita, it can be reached by means of the many royal tree-lined avenues or by secondary links.  The area is renowned for its beach, which is one of the most coveted beaches in Sicily, for its numerous Art Nouveau villas, known as the best expression of Art Nouveau in Italy, and for sites of historical interest.  It is home to the World Festival on the Beach.  In this locality, in 1975 the Mondello Prize was born, a literary festival today organized by the Sicily Foundation together with the Turin International Book Fair. 📷 @digasphoto @helloimdiga - - - - #history #panorama #landscape #photography #palermo #historynerd #landscape_lovers #photographysouls #palermo_bestphoto #historylover #panorama_world #landscapephotography #photographylovers #igerspalermo #historygeek #panoramaview #landscapes #photographyislife #palermocity #historybuff #travel #nature #photographylover #sicily #historylesson #landscape_captures #photographyislifee #palermo_in #historychannel #landscapelovers

When your husband gives you a necklace of Roman coins. There’s a legion* on my neck and so much love in my heart for the nerd who gets me. Thank you. *As pointed out by @JennyFreakingWilliamson there aren’t enough coins on this necklace to be a full legion. It’s a contubernium at most. Although it’s actually 3 coins short of a contubernium.  #coins #coinjewelry #romancoins #nerdygirl #historynerd #thankyou #selfie

Wereldgeschiedenis: een vak waarbij ik regelmatig verrassende zaken hoor die ik nog niet wist. Eén van die onderwerpen is de ontdekkingsreiziger Ibn Battuta (Tanger, 1304-1368), van wie ik nog niet eerder had gehoord. Wel van de naar hem vernoemde mall in Dubai maar ik deed de aanname dat dat net als vele gebouwen één van de rijke sponsors was 😅 Ibn Battuta is een Marokkaanse ondekkingsreiziger die als een als goed moslim betaamd, de Hadj zou afleggen. Uiteindelijk was hij zo nieuwsgierig naar de nieuwe volken, landen en culturen dat hij in 30 jaar meer dan 75.000km heeft afgelegd! Hij reisde van Marokko naar Arabië, Perzië, China, India, Mongolië, Anatolië en de Krim. Dat is meer dan Marco Polo (een tijdgenoot), van wie wij over het algemeen wel op de hoogte zijn. Hoogstwaarschijnlijk heeft dit te maken met de Eurocentrische visie die in Europa heerst. 📚 Leuk lesidee over de tijd van ontdekkingsreizigers en hervormers om eens niet met de standaardnamen zoals Polo of Columbus aan te komen maar met een onbekende en zeker niet mindere personality! 🏛🌍 #geschiedenis #geschiedenisles #historie #historynerd #history #wereldgeschiedenis #study #student #ibnbattuta #ibnbattutamall #moslim #ontdekkingsreiziger #traveller #moroccan #marokko #berber #hadj #arabicculture #surprised #historylessons #docent #leraar #geschiedenisleraar #lesgeven #stagiair #hva #hogeschoolvanamsterdam#hogeschoolvanamsterdam #jufhannie (Pics:Wikipedia)

Edward II was born today, April 25, 1284 in Caernarfon, Wales. He was the king of England from 1307-1327. He was the 4th son of Edward I and not a well regarded king.

The U.S.S Constitution located in Boston, Massachusetts.⁣ 📷⁣ Hey everyone! So sorry for not posting lately, exam season is coming up and it  may or may not be kicking my butt right now. But here’s a new post to get you through the week! I visited the U.S.S Constitution over the summer and was amazed at the sheer size of this ship! Not only was the size impressive, but I was lucky enough to watch Navy soldiers raising the sail. Totally worth the 15 minutes of standing in the sun to watch them work together as a team and interact with a piece of history! ⁣ 📷⁣ ~~~~~~~~~~~⁣ 📷⁣ The U.S.S Constitution is one of the oldest ships in the United States Navy. In 1794, the U.S Congress authorized the construction of 6 ships built among separate seaports with the Constitution being built in Boston. However, the ship proved its strength and durability during the War of 1812 against British soldiers and their own naval fleets. The U.S.S Constitution defeated 4 British ships on three separate occasions. Given the nickname ‘Old Iron Sides’ the ship has a total of 54 cannons below and on its upper decks. The ship is 204 feet long with a width of 43 feet and 6 inches. ⁣ 📷⁣ More information can be found at https://ussconstitutionmuseum.org⁣ 📷⁣ #history #historyfacts #historynerd #travel #historic #unitedstates #massachusetts #historybuff #journey #trip #museums #historicdistricts #unitedstateshistory #boston #bostonmassachusetts #ships #navy #monument #usnavy #historyblogger #blog #historyblog #americanrevolution #warof1812 #navybattleship

By the early 1820s, the Mexican War of Independence had subsided, and Stephen Fuller Austin, the "Father of Texas", knew he needed a bunch of hard fucks to protect the newly settled Texas families from bandits and savages. There was no regular army to protect the citizens so in 1823, Austin organized a small, informal armed group whose duties required them to range over the countryside, and who thus came to be known as "Rangers". The Texas Rangers were formally constituted in 1835 and, in November, Robert McAlpin Williamson was chosen to be the first Major of the Texas Rangers. Within two years the Rangers comprised more than 300 men. (Not the original Rangers. | Company F, Texas Rangers, 1885.)

La crescita esponenziale del fascismo nei primi mesi del 1921 aveva messo Mussolini nella situazione dell’apprendista stregone: doveva lottare per conservare il controllo di un movimento che rischiava di staccarsi dalle sue radici radicali e di diventare una semplice forza d’assalto antisocialista al soldo delle classi medie conservatrici. Un ulteriore pericolo era rappresentato da Giolitti. Fallito il tentativo di attirare nella sua orbita l’ala moderata del Partito socialista dopo l’occupazione delle fabbriche, il vecchio statista aveva spostato la sua attenzione sui fascisti, nella speranza che con i giusti allettamenti fosse possibile convincerli a entrare nell'ovile costituzionale e a fornire all'organismo politico del liberalismo italiano una salutare iniezione di sangue fresco. Aveva quindi invitato Mussolini ad aderire al suo blocco nazionale in occasione delle elezioni di maggio: un avallo sbalorditivo, se si pensa alla sistematica violazione delle leggi perpetrata dagli squadristi.  @cronistoria ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 📧Hai qualche domanda?

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, holiest site in Christianity but also site of funniest dispute in Jerusalem - Immovable ladder dispute. The ladder is referred to as "immovable" due to an understanding that no cleric of the six ecumenical Christian orders may move, rearrange, or alter any property without the consent of the other five orders. It was left there after restauration in 18th century and it is one of visible symbols of Christian division. #holysepulchre #church #catholic #romancatholic #orthodox #greekorthodox #armenian #coptic #ethiopian #assyrian #christian #holyland #israel #израиль #palestine #conflict #dispute #history #historynerd #historylover #eastjerusalem #jerusalem #ירושלים  #westbank #middleeast #telaviv #bethlehem #travel #travelblogger
