EGYPT, 14 DECEMBER 1914. In the shadows of the great pyramids and amid kitbags and Lee-Enfield rifles, an Australian Imperial Force infantryman encounters a kangaroo, the regimental mascot. Many Australian units brought kangaroos and other Australian animals with them to Egypt. Some were given to the Cairo Zoological Gardens when the units went to Gallipoli. Skippy was on permanent shore leave at Mena Camp, the British Empire's training ground in Egypt. Members of the 9th and 10th Battalions smuggled mascots from home aboard transport ships. --- "You have to look at who these men were. They'd just signed up, voluntarily, for war. They were young, with not a lot of thought for the future." The above photo, snapped by Chaplain Ernest Merrington, shows the regard with which this soldier treated the marsupial expat. It's believed it ate the same food as the British force's horses and donkeys a hay and chaff mix called tibin.

Union soldiers are shown laying dead after a recent fight against Confederate soldiers during the Battle of Gettysburg, which ended with a Union victory. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Circa July 5th-6th 1863. The reason these men are shoeless is because it's believed Confederate soldiers stole their shoes after they were killed, as many shoes that the soldiers of the Confederate States Army wore were of very inferior quality and they would take better shoes anywhere they could get them. In fact, a legend states that part of the reason the Battle of Gettysburg was fought at Gettysburg in the first place was because Confederate General Henry Heth sent two brigades into the small town to occupy and loot a warehouse full of shoes. The brigades, according to the legend, were quickly attacked by Union calvary, and both sides quickly sent more and more troops to Gettysburg, inadvertently triggering the famous battle.

In #matriarchal dominant Society women ruled, as #kings, #Pharos, Supreme spiritual leaders. #political leaders, #Generals & where #edified in all ancient black (melinated) cultures women werent seen as equal to men, but intrinsically more magical more capable more in tune spiritually than men. Speach, intellect and creativity were attributed to women. Feminism has nothing to do with the black community. We have no history of gender suppressive rolls, & or limitations on femininity. Feminism is an invention born in #patriarchal #domination. & is still a demotion compared to the position of women in a matriarchal society. #Feminism is saying we're just as good as men, & we reject male domination, while putting on masculine trates, & rejection of femininity. Matriarchal society says unequivocally the woman is more #powerful, mentally physically [creation] and #spiritually. masculinity is born from femininity, unlike patriarchal society which has convinced many people that women come from man's rib even though this is happening nowhere on the planet. Goddesses need to raise the matriarchal energy again! Feminism is a patriarchal compromise to the matriarchal position. Which is like comparing God to a peasant..... when you compare matriarchal to feminism. Feminism is the white woman's issue, with her man.... which she has incorporated #melinated sisters to help her with. & #islam first deity was the moon goddess #allaht not #allah. It's atrocious what these male-dominated.... patriarchal cuktures are doing to the goddesses. This is not our way melinated people come out of these women hate groups, disguised as religions. Christianity YouTo ...over 90% of the women mentioned in the Bible are bad & wicked. True Goddesses raise the matriarchal energy!! Powerless sisters look to feminism for strength. Be Goddess Queenz!

During the final days of the war a platoon of machine gunners entered a Leipzig building looking for positions to set up covering fire points which would protect foot soldiers of the 2nd U.S. Infantry advancing across the bridge. Two members of the platoon found an open balcony which commanded on unobstructed view of the bridge, set up their gun. For a while one soldier fired the gun while the other fed it. Then one soldier went inside and the other manned the smoking gun alone. Wile absorbed in reloading it, a German sniper’s bullet from the street pierced his forehead. He crumpled to the floor, dead.War photographer Robert Capa climbed through a balcony window into the flat to photograph the dead man, who lay in the open door, a looted Luftwaffe sheepskin helmet on his head. There are a subsequent series of photographs that show the rapid spread of the soldier’s blood across the parquet floor while other GIs attended to him and his fellow gunner took over his post at the machine gun. “It was a very clean, somehow very beautiful death and I think that’s what I remember most from the war”, Capa recalled two years later in a radio interview.The soldier was identified as Raymond J. Bowman, age 21, born in Rochester, New York. In January 1944, he was sent overseas to the United Kingdom in preparation for Operation Overlord. Bowman served in France, where he was wounded in action on August 3, 1944, and later in Belgium and Germany. He reached the rank of Private first class during his service. The Life magazine article did not identify the soldiers in the photographs by name, although Bowman’s family recognized him by the small pin (which bore his initials) that he always wore on his collar.The images were published in Life magazine’s Victory edition on 14 May with the caption “The picture of the last man to die”. They would become some of the most memorable images of the Second World War.

This painting made in the 14th century shows the army of Hülagü Khan attacking the city of Baghdad, which would eventually fall to the might of the Mongol Empire. Baghdad, in the Abbasid Caliphate, modern day Iraq. February 1258. Baghdad was the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate, and at its peak the city had one million citizens and an army of 60,000 soldiers defending it. It was also a center in the Islamic world for learning and knowledge. By the 13th century however, the Abbasid Caliphate had severely declined, and by 1241 they had to send an annual tribute to the Mongol Empire in order to stop them raiding their territory and to be safe from harm. However, the Caliph Al-Musta'sim refused to fully submit to Mongol rule or to live in Karakorum. Möngke Khan, the khagan of the entire Mongol Empire, gave his brother Hülagü authority over a subordinate khanate and also gave him an army. Beginning in 1257, Möngke aspired to finally establish a firm Mongol rule over all of Mesopotamia, Syria and all of Iran, but although he didn't truly want Al-Musta'sim to be overthrown he gave Hülagü authority to destroy Baghdad if the Caliph refused the demand of personal submission to Hülagü, and also more payments of tribute. The Mongols soon invaded through modern day Iran and the westernmost parts of central Asia, and they quickly took over the Lurs, Bukhara and the remnants of the Khwaresm-Shah dynasty, but there was still one problem in Iran.... a group known as the al-Hashāshīn, or the "Assassins", attempted to murder both Möngke and Hülegü's associate Kitbuqa, but the attempts were failures. The Assassins were now targets of the wrath of Hülegü and the Mongol Empire. The Mongols captured the Assassin stronghold in Alamut and executed their Grand Master, Imam Rukh al-Dun Khurshah. After the Assassins were destroyed or driven into hiding their next focus turned to the rest of the Abbasid Caliphate and Baghdad itself. If the Caliph refused their demands, the city and all of its people were going to be under siege. CONTINUED BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
