“I remained in the same position, resting the staff of my flaglet on the railing of the porch, when a soldier stepped up behind me, and with his bayonet cut off my staff close to my hand.… turning about I saw him tear my flag into pieces, and stamp them into the dust. I pronounced this the act of a coward and again turned to view the army." —Mary S. Quantrill, Excerpt from an account that appeared in the Washington Star newspaper, February 12, 1869.

This building was the home of Mary Sands Quantrill. A 38 year-old mother of six, Mary Quantrill was described as “an intelligent and handsome woman.” She taught school to girls in this structure during the Civil War.

On the morning of September 10, 1862, Mary Quantrill dared fate as she flew a Union flag in the face of Gen. Lee's passing Confederate Army. Her flag was abruptly confiscated and destroyed by a group of Rebels. Quantrill's pupils came to her aid by replenishing her with additional flaglets.

Mrs. Quantrill was addressed by a Confederate officer (Gen. Hill) who was moved by the schoolteacher's loyalty and support to the Union. He gave orders for his troops to leave the patriotic heroine unharmed.

Mary Quantrill never enjoyed a deserved fame—it was given instead to neighbor Barbara Fritsche. ------------------------------------------------

When I was sweet and innocent. And 20 years later. Alt und sehr unbarmherzig. #thenandnow #youngandold #jungundalt #nowandthen #damalsundheute #innocent #realist

As an adult, at some point you enter into warp speed, and you don’t even realize it until you stop and take a look back. Two years can seem like yesterday, until you look through the eyes of a child. #predictinghannahwillbeontiptoesin4years #nowandthen #denverthedappertapper #age6to8 #backtofrank #iwontdance #youmakemefeelsoyoung #mylittleoldsoul #boysdancetoo #boydancer #guysdancetoo #ouad

Adding on to my previous post 😁... normally I’d be embarrassed to post these, but lately I’ve been more open about myself and don’t care 🤷🏼‍♀️. The first picture was November 2013, (6 months after I had my son). I was not one of the lucky ones that “bounced back” quickly. It took me 3 months or so to fit into my pre-baby jeans again 🙄. Second picture was this morning! It’s all a process! I still struggle with my diet because I love food 🙈 and need to do more cardio to get rid of some extra belly fat that I do not like. I’m getting there. It’s been a fun journey 😆 #FitFriday #PutInWork #HappyFriday #FridayFeels #Weee

7 Weeks Apart

French soldiers during an attack on the German lines in Chemin des Dames, during the Second Battle of the Aisne. The battle took place between April 16 and April 25, 1917. General Robert Nivelle inflicted a six-day artillery preparation. This, of course, provided ample warning that a major French attack was looming. Then, on April 16, seven French army corps attacked the German line along the crest of Chemin des Dames. But Nivelle had underestimated German defensive preparations; the Germans had created deep shelters in ancient underground stone quarries below the ridge, where their troops took refuge from the French bombing. On the first day, the French infantry advanced to the top of the ridge despite intense resistance. However, when the French infantry reached the plateau, it was stopped and then stopped by intense German fire. As a result, the French had 40,000 casualties on the first day alone. The final count, when the offensive ended, was 271,000 French casualties and 163,000 German casualties. ------------------------------------------------

Did you know that I discovered interior design whilst earning a badge as a brownie?! It was founders day yesterday and many kids went to school in their uniforms, including my daughter - keeping up the tradition! Style has changed a bit since the early 80s though...this is my old uniform along side some of my daughters badges!
