Out for a run in the park? DYK under your feet might be the River Des Peres? In the 1920s voters approved the River Des Peres Drainage Project, and construction began to run the river under the park to help ease flooding and prevent sewage issues. 👷🏽 🚱

From the collections: River Des Peres Drainage Project, looking east toward the Jefferson Memorial Building after completion of the tube, before backfill. 1929.

I’m in Abu Dhabi at the moment and it’s gorgeous! It’s a fairly new city and the UAE in general is as well, so I searched up its history (because obviously, I love to find out the history of anywhere I go) and here it is!
The UAE consists of seven emirates and was founded on 2 December 1971 as a federation. Six of the seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah combined on that date). The seventh, Ras Al Khaimah, joined the federation on 10 February 1972. In the 19th century, Britain became the predominant influence in the area known as the Trucial coast (what the seven sheikhdoms were previously known as) with the main purpose to protect the trade route to India from pirates (hence the earlier name for the area, the "Pirate Coast") After piracy was suppressed, other considerations came into play, such as a strategic need of the British to exclude other powers from the region.

A number of conflicts and battles took place along the coast when the Portuguese, under Albuquerque, invaded the area. Ras Al Khaimah was sacked by British forces in 1809 and again in 1819, as a result of conflicts between the maritime communities of the Trucial Coast and the British. This led to the first of a number of British treaties with the Trucial Rulers in 1820. These treaties, including the Treaty of Perpetual Maritime Peace, signed in 1853, led to peace and prosperity along the coast which lasted until the 1930s, when the pearl trade collapsed, leading to significant hardship among the coastal communities.
Following their withdrawal from India in 1947, the British maintained their influence in Abu Dhabi as interest in the oil potential of the Persian Gulf grew and on 5th January 1936, talks began and were signed in January 1939, allowing a seventy-five-year concession for oil.
A British decision, taken in early 1968, to withdraw from its involvement in the Trucial States, led to the decision to found a Federation, however, Bahrain and Qatar both ended up independent. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan is who rules Abu Dhabi today, and the UAE today, as one of its founders.

"Nikola Salos threatening Ivan and offering him raw meat", a 17th-century depiction by Ryabushkin. #BlessedNicholas #IvanTheTerrible
______

In February 1570, after a devastating campaign against Novgorod, Ivan the Terrible moved against city of Pskov, once again suspecting the inhabitants of treason. Upon his arrival, all the inhabitants of Pskov came out upon the streets, and each family knelt at the gate of their house, bearing bread & salt to the meet the Tsar. On one of the streets, a holy fool named Nicholas Salos ran toward the Tsar, and cried out: “Ivanushko, Ivanushko, eat our bread & salt, and not Christian blood.”
___

Although he had forbidden his men to kill, Ivan still intended to sack the city. When Ivan attended a prayer at the Trinity cathedral, he expressed his wish to receive Nicholas' blessings. On the contrary, Nicholas reprimanded the Tsar and asked him not to plunder the holy churches of God anymore. Ivan did not heed him and even gave orders to remove the bell from the Trinity cathedral after that. Then, as Nicholas prophesied, the Tsar’s finest horse fell dead.
__

Afterwards, Nicholas invited the Tsar to visit his cell under the bell tower. When the Tsar arrived at the cell, the holy fool offered the Tsar a piece of raw meat. “I am a Christian and do not eat meat during Lent”, said Ivan to him. “But you drink human blood,” the saint replied.
__

Frightened by the fulfillment of Nicholas' prophecy and denounced for his wicked deeds, Ivan immediately ordered a stop to the looting and fled from the city. #PartEight

Check this out! In some of the books and mottos printed on the Campus, the Roycrofter’s would use this special Roycroft-made parchment paper that had the logo and name as a watermark. This motto is hand-illumined, date unknown, from the collection of Warren Moffet.

Fun fact 1- the uniform in this picture is the same uniform worn in the painting you see behind it.
Fun fact 2 - the man in the picture wearing this very uniform is one of the former presidents of Western Reserve Historical Society, Laurence H Norton.
At tomorrow's History on Tap: Holidays on the Homefront you can see memorabilia from World War I, including uniforms like this one.

"Oprichnicks in Novgorod", an early 20th-century depiction by Mikhail Avilov. #SackOfNovgorod #IvanTheTerrible
______

In addition to the tortures visited on the upper classes, the middle and lower classes also were treated with disregard and disdain. The Oprichniks centered its attack on the townspeople around two main objectives: to increase the royal treasury and to terrorize them into submission.
__

Ivan then ordered an attack on the trade streets of Novgorod, with the Oprichniks seizing all profitable goods and destroying shops & storehouses, then moved into the suburbs, where their instructions were to loot and destroy homes and kill all inhabitants who resisted.
__

Cold, hunger, and disease also killed hundreds of families that were evicted and exiled from the city. Women and children of all ages were also thrown from a high bank into the river where they were trapped under the ice. Soldiers patrolled the water in boats, pushing down anyone who managed to surface alive.
__

Ivan and his Oprichniks continued to brutalize Novgorod until February 12 when the troops withdrew leaving the destroyed city in the hands of the remaining population. In the end, it was claimed that the Oprichniks killed an estimated range of 2500 to 12.000 victims in this bloody massacre, although the actual number of victims is unknown. #PartSeven
