Anika Noni Rose/Princess Tiana - Noni Rose is the voice behind Princess Tiana who is the first, and thus far only, black member of the Disney Princess franchise. This hallmark moment was an important representation of a black woman in a lead role in an iconic children’s movie. The movie was mostly received positively; however, there were some criticisms of the film including: Tiana spent much of the film as a frog, the “ethnically ambiguous” prince was a missed opportunity to showcase a black couple, and subtle stereotypes throughout the film. Do you feel that these critics concerns were warranted??

I'm just curious to see who all actually takes the time to read this. So let's play a little simple game. I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 150 (in hopes that maybe I can get at least 150 responses lol). Simply comment your guess of what number you think I'm thinking of. Whoever guesses the correct answer will win a little something from me. I'll announce the winner(s) in my next post. Good luck and don't forget to smile :)

Today is Emmett Till's 76th birthday. In 1955, Till was killed in Mississippi, at 14 years old, after being accused of whistling at a white woman. His mother's decision to allow the world to see his mutilated body, at an open casket funeral, has been called one of the most important acts in the Civil Rights Movement. Today, we remember his life and his mother's strength. #StayLoud #AmericanHistory #BlackHistory

Hi, I'm Jordan. This Bible is one of my favorite objects on display in our new wing. As a student of early American history, it's no surprise that Stokely Sturgis's Bible attracted my attention.
I'm taking over the @Smithsonian Instagram account this week to share stories from our new wing, titled #TheNationWeBuildTogether. Head over to the Smithsonian account to find out how this Bible changed the lives of two men in Delaware in a way you might not expect.

It was a pleasure working on set for the DETROIT Movie-what a fun cast! In theaters August 4th! #DETROITMovie #AmericanHistory

MOST RECENT

The most important day of the Battle of Gettysburg was the first day when The Army of Northern Virginia took and occupied the town of Gettysburg but failed to occupy the high ground to the rear of the town. The United States Army of the Potomac under George Meade rapidly occupied the high ground. Lee’s very sloppy attacks on the right and left flanks on the second day failed. As did the infamous March across open field on the third day which was a weighted attack centered on George Pickett’s division. This attack decimated his army.

This was done over the objections of some his senior commanders who favored sending reinforcements to break Grant’s siege and defensive posturing against the Army of the Potomac in the east. This they reasoned would allow the Confederate Army of Tennessee to defeat the United States Army in the west, recover Tennessee and threaten Kentucky. This decision led Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia to Gettysburg.

At the same time United States forces under Ulysses Grant had conducted a sparkling campaign that cleared the defenses of Vicksburg and had laid siege to it. Despite the fact he like Lee was outnumbered by Confederate forces in the west. Vicksburg was the last impediment to the United States control of the Mississippi River. Lee decided to go on the offensive once more and invaded the United States again.

Antietam was followed by disastrous defeats by the United States Army of the Potomac at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.
At Chancellorsville in particular Lee nearly annihilated the United States Army of the Potomac by splitting his army in three and enveloping his opponent. Chancellorsville did not to improve the chances of Confederate States Recognition by the European states or bring the United States to the bargaining table.

France and the United Kingdom had no interest in preserving the Republic, they would have been better off if the republic fell both economically and geopolitically. They did have a vested interest in the Abolition of Slavery. Which both powers had ended in their colonial empires. The emancipation proclamation thus ended the threat of foreign Intervention by turning the United States Civil War into a great moral cause.

Summer is a great time to learn a new skill or try a new hobby, why not swing dancing!? During the Great Depression and World War II, swing dancing offered both a recreational outlet and morale boost, and was popular at large social gatherings, clubs, juke joints, and competitive dance events.

Swing dancing is a group of dances that developed alongside jazz and blues movements in African American communities in the 1920’s and 30’s, and were particularly popular with youth groups who were often referred to as Jitterbugs and Lindy Hoppers.

Lincoln and McClellan at Antietam
Lincoln seized the opportunity to add another dimension to the United States war aims by issuing his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. This Proclamation freed no one. No slaves in the United States, no slaves in the Confederate States and none of the slaves held by United States Generals in the field as contrabands of war were freed. The Emancipation Proclamation did dramatically alter the international standing of the United States on the slavery question and changed the war aims of the United States to include preserving the Republic and ending slavery.

I stepped back in time to learn about the Space Shuttle Enterprise during my visit to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. I was amazed at the sheer size of this vehicle and the heroics involved in getting it off the ground. The first orbiter of the Space Shuttle program was built by NASA in 1976 to perform atmospheric test flights after being launched from a modified Boeing 747. This particular spacecraft was the only one that did not fly into space because it was too heavy thus not worth justifying the retrofit costs.

The British and French favored the Confederate States for purely nationalistic reasons. They were edging closer and closer to intervening in some way. Intervention would have been decisive had it occurred, the French were waiting to act in concert with British and the British were waiting on the conclusion of Lee’s campaign. Lee’s withdrawal from influenced the British to shy away from recognizing the Confederate States. The United Kingdom and France would not come close to intervening in the United States Civil War again.

Martha Ingham Dickie Sharp Cogan was an American Unitarian who was involved in humanitarian and social justice work with her first husband, a Unitarian minister, Waitstill Sharp, and others of her denomination, and so helped hundreds of Jews to escape Nazi persecution, through relocation and other efforts. On September 2005, Martha and Waitstill Sharp were named by the Yad Vashem organization as "Righteous Among the Nations".

Lee’s​ plans were foiled by the discovery of his war plans by George McClellan. McClellan could have destroyed Lee’s army component by component, as his army was divided. McClellan however decided to move slowly allowing Lee to reunite his forces at Sharpsburg outside of Antietam Creek.
Lee now on the defensive faced a concentrated United Army close to 2 times as large as his own. Lee countered 3 sloppy offensives against his forces sustaining heavy casualties in process and withdrew from Maryland. McClellan did not pursue. The battle while not a clear cut victory for either army was a clear tactical defeat for Lee. He was compelled to end his invasion of the United States prematurely. This battle had grave political consequences.

World War II Footlocker. Sometimes we wish an object could tell us stories. This is definitely one of those objects. You can see this WWII has traveled and would have many stories to tell, if only it could speak. The more you look at it though, the more it seems to reveal its past. . #mysterytrunk #wwiihistory #wwii #americanhistory #worldwar2 #wellworn #welltraveled #oldtrunk #footlocker #ww2 #worldwarii #american #ww2history #Raleigh #NC #NorthCarolina #durham #fayettevillenc #apex #jacksonvillenc #cary #goldsboro #fortbraggnc #apexnc #southernpines #ftbraggnc #durhamnc #knightdale #RaleighNC #NorthRaleigh

Gettysburg was the bloodiest battle of the war Antietam was the bloodiest day of the war. September 17th 1862. 24,000 casualties. The battle was a draw it was not a clear victory for either side but it’s importance was great. Even though there was no clear victor. To understand why we must examine the war time scene, Confederate General Robert E Lee had amassed a dazzling battle record against opposing United States commanders like John Pope at 2nd Bull Run/Manassas and Joseph Hooker at Chancellorsville and Ambrose Burnside at Fredericksburg.
Lee was encouraged to follow these victories up with major campaigns deep in to the United States to influence foreign Observers and weaken the United States citizens war morale to further a Confederate war victory.
