King's Mountain where Scottish Commander Major Ferguson thought high ground could save him from some feisty Murican Bois from o'er the mountain. The backwoods bois charged up the hillside and gave the brits some muskets, tomahawks, and knives. Lol Redcoats amirite? #nationalparks #revolutionarywar #historybuff

Bunch of British bois got caught between a rock and a hard place, The rock being some tricky Murican militia bois and the hard place some fast Murican horse bois. In the middle numbers didn't matter and there was much rejoicing in ya bois camp that night. #nationalparks #revolutionarywar #historybuff

I think that Telstar is def one of my favorite JJ films, Heinz is so different than a lot of his other roles and I think that's what I like about this character, it's different for him. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it, it's a genuinely interesting story, and if you like JJ he has a pretty significant role .

Colors of dress for Quakers in #colonialstyle #america tended to be more sober, and a little outmoded. This gown is from the #frenchandindianwar period - around 1756 to 1763 - and is made entirely from #linen. Women were expected to wear a shift, stays, a stomacher, two petticoats with pockets on a belt underneath, and stockings and garters. While it sounds warm, the linen helped a woman breathe! A kerchief was worn either over or under the stomacher, depending on how flirtatious you wanted to be. #historicalcostume #revolutionarywar #colonialhouse #benefitstreet #providencerhodeisland #americanhistory

Our 7th and last addition in our "Runaway" women's series! We hope you enjoyed all of the pieces of history and the reproduction clothing. This ad is from the Newport Mercury, January 4th 1773: "Ran away from the subscriber in Newport, on the night of the 1st instant, an indented Irish maid servant, about 28 years of age; she is pretty short and thick, of a very red complexion, and is supposed to have had on a red short cloak, a black bonnet, a green camblet gown, a brown camblet skirt, a checked apron, and carried away a bundle of other clothes. Whoever will apprehend said runaway and return her home, or secure her in any of his Majesty's jails, and give notice thereof, shall be handsomely rewarded by George Nichols." 📷 Credit: Al Pochek #strength #followers #women #history #historicalfashion #americanrevolution #revolutionarywar #army #america #photography

Whether it’s pistols, climbing, whiskey, or economics - my people have quite the capability for making contributions in diverse arenas. These are original firearms from the mid to late 18th century, likely used during the War for Independence. Displayed at the incredible firearms collection in Fort Ticonderoga.

Last weekend we visited some Revolutionary War battle sites. On the way there we were explaining The Revolution to baby girl. And guys, I got a taste of the Classical Conversation fruit. She broke out into song at the words Boston Tea Party, Declaration of Independence, and George Washington. She can so vividly remember and recall those history sentences put to music. ⠀

It was as much of an “ah-ha” moment for her as it was for me. This is why the memory work is enough! All those hours of tucking away those facts can now be pulled out and brought to life, connections were made and solidified. ⠀

The further we dive into the curriculum the more and more I believe in this model of education. If you are a Classical Conversationalist, and the memory work feels like drudgery, just know it is enough and the fruit will come from your hard work and diligence! ⠀

P.S. If you’re not watching Turn: Washington’s Spies, you are seriously missing out on an exceptional show!
