    @Patchouli brought up history of French here and so I thought I'd start a thread about what we know about American History.

    Other than The Louisiana Purchase and a little about French immigrants I know a little about French Huguenots. Mainly because I have camped off and on at Huguenot Park for past 40 years.

    Thank you, @Meerkat. Very interesting piece of history. My ancestry was Huguenot.

    Interesting video. If he had run it another ten seconds or so he could have mentioned that the legislature has raided our SSI.

    D-Day was the most fatality losses of landing's in our military history.

    It was also especially bad for Russians POWs.600,000 died in 6 months of abuse and starvation mostly.

    Jefferson stopped paying ransom to pirates.




    The Barbary Pirates were kidnapping white European and Americans and selling the women to other muslims in the Otterman Empire. Using the men as slaves or torturing them to death.

    1600 years. This was a Jesuit creation about 450 years after Christ, they figured they could use the mighty warriors of Arabs to take Israel. well it worked but not for long. Mohammad was married to a Jesuit widow and became a leader in the Arab world. And they made a Holy saint out of him when he died.
    I don't belong to any organized religion [ I do believe in God ] so I don't have any bias for or against this church but have used it at times in my studies . Not condemning any religion either, make up your own mind.

    Jefferson kept quran so he could know his enemy but people will tell you today that President Jefferson who was fighting the Otterman pirates even created a new navy to go after them, had the quran because he liked islam, well I don't think so.

    Pearl Harbor, Tora,Tora,Tora. In my opinion this was a war of ' failure to communicate'.

    Stature Of Liberty, a very interesting little known about history of this world famous icon.

    France did not give us the stature a Frenchman wanting to leave his huge artistic mark in the world first tried to sell it to Egypt, then Pulitzer a magazine owner told people their pictures would be in the paper if they donated to this guy in France who makes tall statues. So vanity won over as usual and after 15 years here Lady Liberty.

    United States Supreme Courthouse has religious leaders from all over the world on its walls especially the outside frieze on the front of the building.
    This was not on the court house before the planning of 1870s up until 1950s.

    For those who can't use youtube there is a link below.Only one I can find after long google search.

    A little truthful history you won't see or hear about now a days.




    You want to see how they have destroyed history just do like I just did and try to find 5 million white share croppers on google. Much of our history has been wiped clean.

    This is all thats left of any kind of facts about sharecropping.

    An additional attack on the American white male by the communist leftest and their allies have attempted to damage the reputation of our Third President T.Jefferson.
    There is no evidence that Jefferson had children with his slave Sally Henson or any other slave.
    Also slaves owned by Jefferson were already here and to set the unskilled and uneducated free in society during that time period would be worse than keeping them . He did however set free several who had skills.

    Skip to 2:15 in video and watch and learn. Or at least question the high jacking of everything American to advance lefts agendas.

    Even as a kid in High School I always liked history.
    Like my donkey Rosie who wasn't restrained so she could face the front or the back of the trailer, she always faced the back of the trailer when traveling :chevy:, she liked seeing where she had been and Tobacco our horse liked seeing where he was going, so he faced the front.:cool:

    The beginning of the Korean War. Many of our soldiers came back from WW11 and were sent back into this war. Hubbys Uncle Red was one of the.
    A few even went to Viet Nam war too.
