Fort Douaumont Part 2, the disarmament of the Fort. Following the failure of the Brialmont forts of Belgium and numerous French Séré de Riviéres forts to resist German siege artillery, military planners lost all faith in the value of permanent fortifications. The result was that in April 1915, Marshal Joffre issued the fateful decision to disarm the French forts of Verdun. Instead, it was decided to use their artillery and ammunition to better equip the field armies, as these would serve as a better defence. This decision in itself was a highly flawed one, even without considering the consequences on the Battle of Verdun, as the quantity of artillery pieces that was gained was relatively insufficient while their carriages made them unsuitable for field usage. The result was that Fort Douaumont only retained its 155mm and 75mm turret guns as these, unlike the four 75mm guns in the Bourges Casemate, were too difficult to remove. The result was that on the eve of the German attack, the fort was manned only by a small maintenance crew of only 56 troops and a few artillery men; a garrison that even consisted of no officers. The pictures above show the main barrack block, with the former being a period postcard in my collection and the latter being taken in April 2013.

The place is...Fort Davis National Historic Site!
The rumor is that @kareemabduljabbar_33 is both a student of and aficionado for Buffalo Soldier history (and many served at Fort Davis). Apparently, when he visited the Historic Site, he told them that if they ever needed anything, to contact him. Allegedly, Tommy Lee Jones was supposed to be the host of the visitor center video but "forgot" and didn't arrive to the shoot. So they called Kareem and he said, "I'll be there tomorrow."
Supposedly, the reason he is sitting down the entire time is because they didn't have pants to fit him, so he's wearing shorts and a button down t-shirt with a cowboy hat.

Do you guys believe in djinns?
Well, there exist a part of our society which still have faith and belief in djinns. And I got to witness such a place with @exploreexcavateenjoy at the ruins of Firoz Shah Kotla, facts-information & experiences shared by @unfettered_rambler @zainishh & @delhiexplorer ... @the.street.hopper
@ritika_chaudhary_2511 & @shahrozeh
There are rituals & practices performed by the believers, they communicate and pray for their well being. You see the letter above, it's a hand written letter from a follower to the djinn. People pray & believe that their wishes are granted by these energies as of their beliefs.
