It is offically the end of the trade show season here at Neptune’s Harvest, having just finished Acres yesterday. This picture was taken at the end of two back to back trade shows earlier in the season. Featured is young Thomas Molloy, son of our sales director and owner Ann Molloy who many of you have talked to. After a tiresome trip he still had the energy to study up on the Presidents being the big history buff that he is. He started working here at a young age unloading fishing boats, making fertilizer, and is now our operations manager.

We will see everyone next trade show season!

"Bishop Pimen was publicly mocked by being paraded around the city on a mare while facing backwards", a 19th-century painting by Khudyakov. #SackOfNovgorod
_______

The news of the overthrow of King Erik XIV in Sweden and the death of her second wife in 1569 exacerbated Ivan's suspicions. His attention now turned to city of Novgorod, since he received an information claimed that there was a conspiracy among the boyars of the city to surrender the city to the king of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
__

Therefore, Ivan & the Oprichniks decided to march on Novgorod to exact revenge for the alleged treasonous behavior. After arriving on the outskirts of the city on 2 January 1570, Ivan ordered to construct a barrier around the city, trapping the inhabitants, then attacked the monasteries, looting the treasuries, beating and imprisoning the clergy.
__

A week later, Ivan proceeded into Novgorod and was met by the Archbishop of Novgorod, Bishop Pimen. The archbishop attempted to bless Ivan, but he refused, accusing Pimen and all of Novgorod of treason and of conspiring to turn the city over to Poland-Lithuania. Despite his reproof of the archbishop, Ivan still demanded that he be taken to the St. Sophia Cathedral for divine-liturgy.
__

Afterwards, Ivan’s company dined with Pimen, but shortly after the meal began, Ivan shouted orders to his assembled guard to arrest Pimen and to plunder his residence, treasury, and court. Pimen was later publicly insulted and later imprisoned, while Ivan continued to sack the city with his Oprichniks. #PartSix

On this day in 1799, #GeorgeWashington passes away. He was living in retirement at #MountVernon at the time. Remember: Washington could probably have been a King, if he’d really wanted to be. Yet all he ever really wanted was to be at home, taking care of his own affairs. Washington was just ambitious enough to get himself and the country where it needed to go. Yet he was humble enough that he became tired of the presidency and retired, even before Americans were ready to let him. His retirement set a precedent for peaceful transitions of power. Washington spent much of December 12 riding around his estate in cold and rainy weather. The next day, he had a sore throat, but refused to do anything about it. His secretary, Tobias Lear, wrote that Washington “would never take any thing to carry off a cold—always observing, ‘let it go as it came.’” #Washington spent the evening reading aloud—apparently in a hoarse voice—with Martha Washington and Lear. The “cold” quickly became worse. Washington woke Martha up in the early morning hours, saying that he felt unwell. Martha wanted to get help, but he would not let her out of the warm bed until morning. Doctors were called. Unfortunately, the medical practices of the time worsened his condition: They “bled” him repeatedly. He later told a doctor, “I die hard, but I am not afraid to go.” And he asked Lear to make him a promise: “[D]o not let my body be put into the vault in less than two days after I am dead.” (Presumably, he did not want to be accidentally buried alive.) Lear nodded, but Washington persisted: “Do you understand me?” Lear said, “Yes, sir.” Washington responded: “’Tis well.” They were his last words. #TDIH #AmericanHistory #USHistory #history #liberty #freedom #FirstInWar #FirstInPeace #throwback #historybuff #sharethehistory

Is anyone else a #history buff?

I'm no expert by any means, but I spent a lot of my teen years learning about renaissance and royalty. The story of the wives of #henryviii always struck me as heartbreaking. So it was moving to be able to visit the place where people like #AnneBoleyn and #CatherineHoward were executed for such foolish reasons.

I was glad I could visit this spot and pay my respects to young women who suffered at the whim of a young man. .

The Fighting Heroes of WW2
-
Series 1- Günter Halm- Knights Cross winning Leutnant, AT Gun commander, the second youngest soldier to be awarded the Knights Cross.
-
Part 1- The words of a Gentleman, July 2016. ‘Both friend and foe are gone. Today only the memory remains, because comradeship and friendship are stronger than death. As young men, we were forced to fight against each other to the bitter end in the most brutal of all wars. We all did our duty for our Fatherlands. The difference to other theatres of conflict was that the fighting in Africa was fair. After the battle and the killing was over, both sides turned into humans. Friend and foe helped one another and treated the other side with respect and honour. We wore different uniforms, but we all knew that the foe was just like us. Men with families, fathers, brothers and sons fighting for their loved ones and their country. I found proof of that on the ship that took me into captivity in America and in which, by the strangest coincidence, I met an English Captain who’s tank had been hit by my fire at Ruweisat Ridge. It had been my fire that had taken away one of his feet. After a long conversation, he embraced me. We shook hands and he said ‘Kamerad, it is a shame we were born in different Fatherlands’. He gave me his address in England and asked me to visit him after the war. Sadly this address was taken from me when I arrived in the POW camp, yet I have never been able to forget this man. I am moved and impressed by English fairness and respect. Whereas, in my country, the old German soldiers are still being criminalised by politics, it is the invaluable friendships with my former enemy, new friendships and old ones, which define who I am today.
Nie wieder Krieg!- No more war!

#tbt On this day in 1927, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle front page reported on the anxiety in Washington and Mexico when Col. Charles A. Lindbergh failed to arrive as scheduled in Mexico as part of a goodwill ambassadorial visit. He had last been reported flying over Tampico at 8:50 a.m. local time. (Just months before, in May of 1927, the Lone Eagle, as Lindbergh was nicknamed, had galvanized the world with his successful solo flight from Long Island to Paris in 33 1/2 hours). But the Dec. 15 headline would report a happy conclusion. According to some history reports, but not appearing immediately in the Eagle, a Special Act of Congress, also on Dec. 14 awarded Lindbergh the Medal of Honor, which is usually reserved for heroism in combat. President Calvin Coolidge presented Lindbergh with the award in March 1928.

"🇬🇧 HMS Grenadier (T334)" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - HMS Grenadier (T334) stationary in a harbor. This is photograph FL 13591 from the collections of the Imperial War Museums. -------------------------------------------- HMS Grenadier (T334) was a Military class trawler of the British Royal Navy, which served as an Anti Submarine Warfare Vessel during the Second World War. The ship was built by Cook, Welton & Gemmill in Beverley, England. She was laid down on June 13th 1942, launched on September 26th 1942 and finally commissioned on February 10th 1943. Her role was to support convoys, and deter attack by German u-boats using depth charges. This class of vessel could be fitted with extra guns, and the Grenadier was reported to have had an extra pair of Oerlikon 20mm guns and a Type 290 mast mounted radar. -------------------------------------------- Her most notable engagement occurred on March 16th 1945. That morning she was in convoy alongside the steam merchant Inger Toft, now operating under the Ministry of War transport, when at 0900 Inger Toft was struck by a torpedo fired from German submarine U-722 and began to quickly sink. The captain of Grenadier at the time was A/SkrLt Arthur George Day of the Royal Navy Reserve. It was common practice when under attack, for the captain to order the crew to take the vessel to full propulsion whilst dropping depth charges, to avoid being hit whilst trying to hunt the attacking U-boat. -------------------------------------------- A/SkrLt Day realised that the men of Inger Toft whose vessel had now sunk beneath the waves would have little chance of survival if they followed this routine. He ordered his men to turn their vessel into the direction of the sunken vessel. Whilst ultimately risking his own vessel and entire crew, they managed to save the entire 30 man crew of Inger Toft including the captain from the freezing waters. For his actions A/SkrLt Arthur George Day was mentioned in dispatches, he received an oak leaf to be worn on his 1939-1945 war medal. ⬇️⬇️ continued

On this day in history, December 14th 165 BC, Judas Maccabeus, son of Mattathias of the Hasmonean family, restores the Temple in Jerusalem. The Maccabean revolt began when Mattathias refused to worship the Greek gods and killed a Hellenistic Jew who offered to make a sacrifice to the Greek gods in his place. Mattathias and his five sons ran away into the wilderness to escape punishment for the murder. Judas succeeded his father as leader of what grew into open rebellion against the Seleucid Empire, after they had practically outlawed Judaism. Judas Maccabeus and his troops experienced great success in battle against the Seleucids due to their use of guerrilla tactics and prudent managing of their resources. Maccabeus ceremonially cleansed the temple after the victorious Jews marched into Jerusalem. The Seleucids planned on squashing the revolt, but the death of Seleucid Emperor Antiochus IV and other domestic problems forced the state to make peace with the rebels and grant the Jews religious freedom. This event is commemorated annually with the festival of Hanukkah.

Where's your favorite place to rest and recharge after racing from ride to ride? I am taking my sweet time with my chai latte at Fidler, Fifer & Practical Cafe on Buena Vista Street. Coffee shops have a fascinating history. While we understand them as a place to get your favorite drink and use the wifi, they have also served as places where communities organized politically and found safety from discrimination.

US Navy Rear Admiral Aaron S. Merrill receiving the Navy Cross award from Vice Admiral Aubrey W. Fitch on the after deck of USS Montpelier, Tulagi Harbor, Solomon Islands, December 11, 1944.

General John Sedgwick of the Union Army (right) is shown sitting with Colonels Albert V. Colburn (left) and Delos Sackett (center) during the Peninsula Campaign against the Confederate States, which would end with a victory for the Confederacy. Harrison's Landing, Virginia. Circa 1862. General Sedgwick was solid and dependable, although he was somewhat unaggressive as a general. He was wounded three times in the Battle of Antietam, and he was also involved in the Second Battle of Fredericksburg and the Battle of Salem Church, and his VI Corps was the last corps to arrive at the Battle of Gettysburg, so as a result they didn't see much action at the last one. Sedgwick ended up being killed by a Confederate sharpshooter at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House on May 9th 1864, which happened as he and his men were probing skirmish lines ahead of the left flank of Confederate defenses. The enemy sharpshooters were only 1,000 yards away, and the shots they fired caused many members of his staff and artillerymen to duck for cover. General Sedgwick strode around directly in the open and he was reported to have said: "Why are you dodging like this? They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance!" Ironically, a few short moments afterwards, he was hit under the left eye by a bullet fired from a Whitworth rifle and he died immediately. John Sedgwick was along with General John F. Reynolds (July 1st 1863, Gettysburg) the two highest-ranking United States soldiers who were killed in the American Civil War. His death was met with sorrow from Union Generals Ulysses S. Grant and George G. Meade, and even from Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who was a good and old friend with Sedgwick.

The Moulin de Rolmont windmill south of the French village of Warloy-Baillon, photographed on August 25, 1916 by war photographer John Warwick Brooke, and sometime this century (second photo). Located on the road between Henecourt and Baizieux, this windmill served as an observation post for the British during the Battle of the Somme in 1916, and was located in a rest area well behind the front line by that time. Within a year and a half, however, by March of 1918, fluctuations of the front line had caused the mill to be much closer to the fighting, and as a result it suffered damage by artillery fire. The aircraft flying overhead in the wartime photo appears to be a Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2, probably on its way from or to the Royal Flying Corps base which was nearby.

Some of the first Americans taken prisoner during World War I, photographed in May 1918. The caption reads "The first Americans caught." The picture was taken within the Festung Marienberg (Marienberg Fortress), a castle fortress located on the outskirts of the town of Würzburg, Germany, which allegedly during both world wars was used to house POWs. Grim faces all around on these men, and the winter overcoats would suggest it might early in the month, closer to spring.

"The 🇨🇱 Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre" - (Part 9 & final part = The ship's limited modernization, service in WWII, and being sold for scrap) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Top photo - The Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre in 1921. -------------------------------------------- Bottom photo - The hull of the Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre, in Yokohama, Japan, during her scrapping process. -------------------------------------------- Still in the midst of the depression, Almirante Latorre was deactivated at Talcahuano in 1933 to lessen government expenditures, and only a caretaker crew was assigned to tend to the mothballed ship into the mid-1930s. In a 1937 refit in the Talcahuano dockyard, the aircraft catapult was taken off and anti-aircraft weaponry was added. Almirante Latorre was never fully modernized, however, and by the Second World War her main battery was comparatively short-ranged and her armor protection, designed before the "all or nothing" principle was put into practice, was wholly inadequate. Nevertheless, soon after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States approached the Chilean naval attaché and the vice admiral heading Chile's naval commission to the United States with the aim of purchasing Almirante Latorre and a few destroyers to bolster the United States' navy. The offer was declined, and Almirante Latorre was used for neutrality patrols during the Second World War. -------------------------------------------- Almirante Latorre was active until 1951, when an accident in the ship's engine room killed three crewmen. Moored at Talcahuano, the battleship became a storage facility for fuel oil. She was decommissioned in October 1958, and was sold to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in February 1959 for $881,110 to be broken up for scrap. On May 29th 1959, to the salutes of the assembled Chilean fleet, the old dreadnought was taken under tow by the tug Cambrian Salvos, and reached Yokohama, Japan, at the end of August, though the scrapping process did not begin immediately on arrival. #🇨🇱BattleshipAlmiranteLatorre

It was the American (and British) writers and artists visiting France during the World War I, or referred as the Lost Generation, who influenced the French to think and express themselves freely.

These people of arts, they wanted to be free from all restrictions back home, and they found France whose living cost was inexpensive at that time, the perfect place to put Carpe Diem into practice. They lived a Bohemian lifestyle on the Paris left bank; affairs were rampant, open relationships abounded, and it was all fuelled by copious amount of alcohol.

Many writers and artists of the Lost Generation ended up living in Paris during the 20s and 30s. The term Lost Generation was coined by Gertrude Stein and it quickly became a name for these authors after Ernest Hemingway mentioned it in "The Sun Also Rises"; “You are all a lost generation.” #lostgeneration #cafesociety #france #cotedazur #nice #ilovenice #historybuff #fiveoclockshadow #lightsandshadows

Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem - Built in 691 during the reign of Umayyud Caliph Abd al-Malik, this is considered a holy site in Islam due to the belief that Prophet Muhammad began his Night Journey to Heaven from this spot. The Dome of the Rock also impacts Jews in that it is considered to be standing on the site of the Temple Mount, a holy site in Judaism. Interestingly, at one point there was a Roman temple dedicated to Jupiter. The monument has undergone many changes since its inception, owing to Jerusalem's turbulent history.

Chateau Thierry

This offensive advanced to within just a few miles of Paris and was halted by the arrival of the United States Expeditionary force. The United States army had been slowly reequipped and enlarged during the earlier phases if the war and had some earlier successes at Chateau-Thierry and Belleau woods. These engagements revived the spirits and morale of French and British soldiers who were on the brink of collapse.

Belleau Woods

With this failure in the east the Germans were free to launch a powerful offensive in the west. In 1918 the Germany Army brought the bulk of their soldiers and military equipment to the western theater. Their goal was to launch an over powering attack on the enemies and bring the war to a swift conclusion. This offensive in 1918 was just as damaging as the German Offensive of 1914 had been.

From the point of view of the United States, France and United Kingdom there was a powerful motive to get Russia back into the war so that Germany would have to fight a two front war again. So the United States and the United Kingdom made the fateful decision to send troops into Russia to help the White Russians defeat the Red Russians. This was one of the events that led to a deep dislike and distrusts within the later Soviet Union of the United States and the United Kingdom. The mission to aid the White Russians went on until 1920 and was unsuccessful.

Tsar Nicholas II of Russia
Now within Russia there were still competing rival factions each vying for control of the government. There were the remaining g Tsarist supporters and forces who wanted to restore the deposed Nicholas II to power and the supporters and forces of the Democratic government that had briefly succeeded the Tsar before being overthrown by the Bolsheviks. These groups collectively were termed the White Russians while the Bolsheviks were called Red Russians.

Europe after the Treaty of Brest-Litov

The Bolsheviks gained popular support by promising to get Russia out if the war at all costs. That’s what they did after their take over they began negotiating a treaty with the Germans. The Treaty of Brest Litov signed on March 3rd 1918 acknowledged Russian defeat in the war, gave imperial Germany a large portion of Eastern Europe and also saw Germany acknowledge the new socialists government in Russia.

Leon Trotsky

Trotsky was one of the most fascinating characters of the 20th century, a famed and ruthless military commander. Trotsky was also an accomplished writer who's History of the Russian Revolution remains one of the best ever written from the point of view of the Bolsheviks.

Leon Trotsky

Also many of the leaders of the failed 1905 revolution went into exile. Leon Trotsky was one of them. Trotsky spent some time in the United States. He came to despise the socialist in the United States. Those who wanted to bring in socialism gradually. He likened them to salesmen who missed on the state of the world on Sunday gatherings.

Russia had not participated in the second national. Russia was terribly underdeveloped. With industrial capabilities severely lacking any modernization nor did she have a representational system of democracy.

Karl Marx
After their deaths socialism underwent a change and a new group of Socialists thinkers the Second International began to popularize their own theories regarding socialism. The original theory was one of a violent overthrow of the capitalists but now the Democratic Socialists reasoned that they would be able to displace the capitalists using popular democracy.

Friedrich Engels

Now Russia was a wild card for socialism to take root. Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx the fathers of socialist thought and communism had expected the workers revolution to occur in a highly industrialized and educated state like The United Kingdom and Imperial Germany. They never thought it would happen in Russia.

The first major event was the Russian Revolution which would have a continuing impact on the remainder of the twentieth. The second was the United States entry into World War One. In Russia as the war effort against the Germans failed a number of groups wrestled for control. The Bolsheviks led by Vladimir Lenin promised that if they came to power they would end the war. They seized control of the Russian government that October and quickly signed a peace treaty with the Germans. Their popularity and reasons for ending the war simple. The War was ruinous for Imperial Russia, an estimated 5 million men died while the entire economy went asunder.

"Bishop Pimen was publicly mocked by being paraded around the city on a mare while facing backwards", a 19th-century painting by Khudyakov. #SackOfNovgorod

The news of the overthrow of King Erik XIV in Sweden and the death of her second wife in 1569 exacerbated Ivan's suspicions. His attention now turned to city of Novgorod, since he received an information claimed that there was a conspiracy among the boyars of the city to surrender the city to the king of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Therefore, Ivan & the Oprichniks decided to march on Novgorod to exact revenge for the alleged treasonous behavior. After arriving on the outskirts of the city on 2 January 1570, Ivan ordered to construct a barrier around the city, trapping the inhabitants, then attacked the monasteries, looting the treasuries, beating and imprisoning the clergy.

A week later, Ivan proceeded into Novgorod and was met by the Archbishop of Novgorod, Bishop Pimen. The archbishop attempted to bless Ivan, but he refused, accusing Pimen and all of Novgorod of treason and of conspiring to turn the city over to Poland-Lithuania. Despite his reproof of the archbishop, Ivan still demanded that he be taken to the St. Sophia Cathedral for divine-liturgy.

Afterwards, Ivan’s company dined with Pimen, but shortly after the meal began, Ivan shouted orders to his assembled guard to arrest Pimen and to plunder his residence, treasury, and court. Pimen was later publicly insulted and later imprisoned, while Ivan continued to sack the city with his Oprichniks. #PartSix
