Радищев Александр Николаевич - известный русский писатель, приверженец "просветительной философии". Александр Николаевич Радищев в своем знаменитом произведении "Путешествие из Петербурга в Москву" впервые в русской литературе правдиво рассказал о бесчеловечном отношении помещиков к своим крепостным крестьянам, о бесправии народа и творимом над ним насилии. Писатель показал картину бунта крепостных крестьян, доведенных до отчаяния. За это ему пришлось дорого заплатить - суровой ссылкой в Сибирь... . . . #история #историяроссии #музей #фаворит #государь #Радищев #российскаяимперия #екатерина2 #СССР #россия #силаволи #родина #history #historylover #historygeek #historyfacts #historynerd #historic #book #monument

[HISTORY OF MUSIC - ROMANTICISM PART II] New music genres The European population grew in the 19th century, and citizenship was the main culture bearer. Music was given a wide audience, and thanks to this democratization, numerous orchestras and opera theaters, music societies and schools, music libraries and archives were set up to make public concerts. Domestic music is also a consequence of the democratization of music that was part of the usual musical education and the symbol of social status: almost there was no home without a piano, the most popular instrument of romanticism. It played the role of later gramophone and radio as he played the role of performing orchestral and opera art works. An important feature of musical romanticism is the program, the description of events by music. Particularly remarkable were new types: piano miniature, solo songs (music for the voice and piano) and symphonic poem (music piece for symphony orchestra in one part). Like today in the nineteenth century, there was fun, popular music. The composer had to decide: to write for his own passion or to adapt to the market and to compose undemanding music intended for the entertainment of a wide audience. The latter consisted of piano music in salon, operetta (small opera) and dance music featuring the waltz (the most popular dance of the 19th century) and can-can (the Parisian dance of fast pace and cheerful character). . . . . . #romanticism #romanticera #romantic #history #musichistory #musicinstrument #music #musiclover #musiclover 🎶 #cancan #waltz #operetta #opera #piano #concert #gramophone #radio #symphony #poem #solosong #blog #blogger #blogging #historyloversclub #historypub #historylover #lovehistory #historia #historygeek #historynerd

Sub-Saharan Africa 110 years ago today: Belgian Congo (15 Nov 1908) https://buff.ly/2TdKbGY News of atrocities in the Congo Free State - personally ruled by King Leopold II of Belgium since the 1880s - led to public outcry in the early 20th century. Bowing to international pressure, the parliament of Belgium annexed the territory as the Belgian Congo in November 1908, bringing an end to an exploitative regime which had presided over some 6-10 million native deaths. #subsaharanafrica #history #welovemaps #map #1900s #1908 #africa #africanhistory #belgianempire #congofreestate #belgiancongo #colonialism #ethiopia #frenchempire #italy #kufrah #november #november15 #ogaden #somalia #congobasin #wadai #maps #todayinhistory #historyteacher #historybuff #historynerd #historytoday #historygeek #colonialism

On this day in 1867, the first stock ticker is unveiled in New York City. The advent of the ticker ultimately revolutionized the stock market by making up-to-the-minute prices available to investors around the country. Prior to this development, information from the New York Stock Exchange, which has been around since 1792, traveled by mail or messenger. The ticker was the brainchild of Edward Calahan, who configured a telegraph machine to print stock quotes on streams of paper tape (the same paper tape later used in ticker-tape parades). The ticker, which caught on quickly with investors, got its name from the sound its type wheel made. The last mechanical stock ticker debuted in 1960 and was eventually replaced by computerized tickers with electronic displays. A ticker shows a stock’s symbol, how many shares have traded that day and the price per share. It also tells how much the price has changed from the previous day’s closing price and whether it’s an up or down change. A common misconception is that there is one ticker used by everyone. In fact, private data companies run a variety of tickers; each provides information about a select mix of stocks. #LearnOurHistory
Forget Blackbeard and Henry Morgan - the most notorious pirates in the Caribbean were two women ☠️. Anne Bonny (left) and Mary Read (right) plundered their way through the Caribbean on board of the pirate ship “William”. The “William” was commanded by John “Calico Jack” Rackham (pic 2) who is famous for his design of the Jolly Roger: a skull with two crossed swords (pic 3). Anne was Irish and the daughter of a wealthy lawyer and his affair. She is said to have had a fiery temper and eventually eloped with a poor sailor. She met Jack in Nassau were he had received a pardon from the English crown. After beginning an affair and having to flee from Anne’s scorned husband they contravened the pardon and stole a ship to return to piracy. Anne concealed her identity as a women from the crew but fought just like the rest of the men. Eventually the crew took in another member who is now known as Mary Read. She was born in England. had served in the military in Flanders and worked as a sailor. When Anne’s crew captured her ship she was quick to join the pirates. She also hid her true identity until - legend has it - Anne tried to seduce her. Together with Rackham they became the “trio infernale”. Mary and Anne were known as the most bloodthirsty members of the crew and after stealing the “William” and hiring a new crew, all three made an incredible fortune by capturing ships up and down the Caribbean. In 1720 the governor of the Bahamas issued a proclamation against Anne, Mary and Jack. On this day in 1720 pirate hunter Jonathan Barnet attacked the “William”. The entire male crew was drunk, so it was left to Anne and Mary to fend the attackers off. Both fought hard but ultimately had to surrender. They were brought to Jamaica to stand trial and Jack as well as the rest of the crew was hanged. Anne and Mary were both pregnant at this point. Their trial was therefore postponed until both had given birth. Mary died in prison before giving birth but Anne survived. Nobody knows how she escaped her death sentence and where she ended up. All that is known is that she was not executed. 💀
On September 12, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a law establishing Canyonlands National Park. Today, Canyonlands preserves 337,598 acres in the heart of southeast Utah's high desert. Yet, not much has changed since nomads wandered through the region and Butch Cassidy hid from the law. Much of the park remains as wild as ever; impassable, virgin land.

[THIS POST IS NON-POLITICAL AND IS IN NO WAY SUPPORTING FACISIM] A German soldier supports his wounded comrade while they presumably head towards the Aid Station behind the frontline, Eastern Front, fall or winter, 1942/1943. German soldiers, who fought on the bloody Eastern Front, have always said it was a very hard, bleak, and hopeless affair. You began to fight for the man next to you, not these dreams of a "Final Victory" and for the glory of the Third Reich. To many of the less devout soldiers, who's family had opposed the Nazi Party but joined out of excitement and a yearning for adventure or they were drafted, they had fought to survive and to help their unit survive. These soldiers became some of the best in the German military because their hunger to go home and survive drove them to near insanity in combat. By late 1943, the vast majority of German soldiers on the Eastern Front had given up hope for the chances of victory. Additionally, rations of food and fuel were beginning to run out. The German military was in a rapid retreat across the great plains of the Eastern Front. Near Leningrsd, the fighting had divulged into a massive attritional meat grinder. Kursk had just been lost. It was the moment that many decided that they were going to die sometime within the next few weeks, months, or the more optimistic opinion; years. Surrendering was not an option, you would be either executed or interned in a Gulag where chances if survival were incredibly slim. You had to fight to the very bitter end, knowing full well Germany would not win and you would be killed, usually in a horrible, slow, and horrific manner. 4 out of 5 German soldiers who fought on the Eastern Front were killed.

_____ _____ ● Encerrados en jaulas, exhibidos sin ningún tipo de respeto y obligados a vivir en condiciones infrahumanas, miles de personas sufrieron bajo el ojo público tras la popularización de unos supuestos “zoológicos” que prometían un intercambio cultural entre “humanos exóticos” y los miembros más favorecidos de la comunidad europea. - ¿Qué hacían los zoológicos humanos? - ¿Qué mostraban? - ¡Capsics te lo cuenta! - ● A finales del siglo XIX, una ola de recintos que prometían “entretenimiento y aprendizaje”, se apoderó de las calles de Europa. Tal como un zoológico de animales, los humanos eran encerrados y mostrados al público como “especímenes exóticos”. Raptados de África, Australia e incluso algunos países de Suramérica, todas las víctimas debían representar un papel y entretener al público. - ● El supuesto propósito era mostrarle a Europa cómo vivían las comunidades de otros países, sin embargo, la práctica estaba llena de tortura, hacinamiento, humillación y discriminación. - ● Eran separados por nacionalidad y catalogados como “raros especímenes”; también usaban como parte del show personas con algún tipo de discapacidad física o con alguna condición especial. Los albinos, los enanos, los jorobados y las personas con microcefalia e hidrocefalia eran los más buscados, las exposiciones solían centrarse en ellos. - ● Como era de esperarse ,los visitantes de los zoológicos eran personas de la alta sociedad, las entradas para estos recintos de tortura y racismo eran bastante costosas, pero las víctimas no recibían ni un centavo. - ¿CAPISC? ¿Qué locura no? Opina sobre esta desgarradora historia.

This is a #throwbackthursday in more ways than one. I painted it last year from a stereogram from a Paris flea market — stereograms consist of two images taken at slightly different angles which appear 3-dimensional when viewed in a stereoscope device. The photograph is labeled as having been taken in the Bois de Boulogne in April of 2013. No other clues as to who these people are but they look like a family to me. . . . . #paris #boisdeboulogne #parishistorique #vintagephotography #oldphotograph #stereogram #fleamarketfinds #parisjetaime #thefrancophiles #illustratorsoninstagram #womenwhodraw #vintagephoto #tbt #stereoscope #familyportraits #parisinsolite #sennelier #aquarelle #illustratrice #micronpen #historicalfashion #historynerd #historygeek #histoiredefrance #familyphotoshoot #familyphotos #micronpen #seemyparis

Yesterday was windy. I was riding anyway so I decided to get some filming out of the way. I underestimated how windy it was and couldn’t get anything useful. Today is colder, but more still. I’m not taking any chances and will be recording myself on two different recorders. This is the last serious filming I’ve gotta do this year and I want it out of the way, below freezing or not. . . . #anthropology #archaeology #ancienthistory #anthrolove #culture #cultureandheritage #culturalanthropology #history #historygeek #biologicalanthropology #linguisticanthropology #lightworks #cycling #cyclist #biketouring #filmmaking #filmmaker #rhodeislandcollege #zoomh1 #tascam #sony

The smallest raptor in Africa? At 20 centimeters (8 inches) long and weighing in at up to 85 grams (3 ounces), it’s the African Pygmy Falcon (Polihierax semitorquatus). But don’t underestimate the might of this petite bird of prey—while it’s smaller in size, it’s still a fierce predator. In the dry, sparsely vegetated habitats where it lives, it uses its keen sense of sight to spot prey from a perch. Once it locks in on a target, it quickly swoops down from above to claim its meal. What’s on the menu? A mix of lizards, insects, small birds, and rodents.

Why did the elite of ancient Egypt feel the need to mummify their dead? Simply put, they believed that it was possible to live again after death – but only if the body retained a recognisable human form. Ironically, this could have been achieved quite easily by burying the dead in direct contact with the hot and sterile desert sand; a natural desiccation would then have occurred. But the elite wanted to be buried in coffins within tombs, and this meant that their corpses, no longer in direct contact with the sand, started to rot. The twin requirements of elaborate burial equipment plus a recognisable body led to the science of artificial mummification. The photo above shows the archaeologist Howard Carter examining the coffin of the pharaoh Tutankhamun.

The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation on this date in 1777. (The Articles were not ratified by all 13 states until March, 1, 1781, and they were later replaced by the U.S. Constitution.) Article VI forbade keeping vessels of war or any body of forces in peacetime without the consent of Congress.  However, "every State shall always keep up a well regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of field pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage."

Hireth || The Cornish world that means a 'longing for home’, and the place, family and everything else that is encapsulated in 'home'. And the title of a beautiful play written by @kernowking_ , directed by @oregionsi and supported by the @cornishmining World Heritage Site. Poignantly set in the Miners' Chapel in Wild West St Just, I'm still thinking of those mining boys whose resting places are together, deep in the exploded tunnels under the trenches in France
Marble relief of Zeus and Hera from the East Frieze of Parthenon dated approximately in 438-432 B.C. The design of the work is connected to the Athenian sculptor Pheidias. The scene is part of the procession of the Panathenaic festival (in honour of the goddess Athena). On the photo Hera is represented siting on a simple stool and making the significant bridal gesture of unveiling herself, as she was the patronage goddess of marriage and wife of Zeus. Zeus sits next to her but in a more elaborate chair which includes a backrest and arms compared to the simple stools of the other gods. In his right arm is considered to hold a thunderbolt or a sceptre but is not clearly identified as it is partly survived. Behind this antiquity there is a controversial topic that exemplifies questions about the ownership and the return of antiquities to their places of origin. It is an example of the many sculptures that Elgin removed from their place and took them in Britain back in the 19th century. The Greek state claims to restore and retrieve the sculptures to be rejoined with the rest of their heritage.

The smallest raptor in Africa? At 20 centimeters (8 inches) long and weighing in at up to 85 grams (3 ounces), it’s the African Pygmy Falcon (Polihierax semitorquatus). But don’t underestimate the might of this petite bird of prey—while it’s smaller in size, it’s still a fierce predator. In the dry, sparsely vegetated habitats where it lives, it uses its keen sense of sight to spot prey from a perch. Once it locks in on a target, it quickly swoops down from above to claim its meal. What’s on the menu? A mix of lizards, insects, small birds, and rodents. Photo: Derek Keats
“The Haitian Revolution has often been described as the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere. It is certainly the only servile uprising that led to the creation of an independent nation, Haiti. Slaves initiated the rebellion in 1791 and by 1803 they had succeeded in ending not just slavery but French control over the colony. The Haitian Revolution, however, was much more complex, consisting of several revolutions going on simultaneously. These revolutions were influenced by the French Revolution of 1789, which would come to represent a new concept of human rights, universal citizenship, and participation in government.” (blackpast.org) ❓❓❓ Who was the leader of the Haitian Independence movement? . . . . . #history #ap #apworldhistory #apushistory #apeuro #worldhistory #memes #memehistory #historymemes #memestagram #meme #historygeek #historyclass #ushistory #haiti #france #haitianrevolution
