Re: (HISTORY) Tin Horns and Calico by Henry Christman - m8b1

And this was only the opening scene -- much more excitement yet to come! There was an almost comical aspect to the story of the hapless Mr. Leonard, but things are about to get a bit more serious, as there's a posse on its way in the next chapter, which I'm editing now.

I did record one chapter. :) My mouth was feeling dry, so I didn't do more.

Re: [GOV'T / RACE RIOTS] Kerner Commission Report - tg

I was going to listen to 27 right now, but decided I should probably do some of my own recording. I can PL when Kevin's home; I can't record when he is. :) Aaand...you went ahead and PL'ed anyway! I hope you got some of your own recording done! (I know what you mean, though, about waiting till the ...

Re: [GOV'T / RACE RIOTS] Kerner Commission Report - tg

Thanks again! PL OK. Some of this I've heard before, but much of it I haven't. This is stuff that should be taught during Black History Month (if not all year round, of course). History was always my favorite subject in school, and still is today. Figuring out how to move forward from where we are ...

Re: (HISTORY) Tin Horns and Calico by Henry Christman - m8b1

We have a number of prominent (or otherwise) settlers to Wisconsin from New York. They came to us at about this same time, seeking opportunity that may have been denied them in New York. I can't think of any other reason one would leave upstate New York. (Well, winter, but Wisconsin is no better in...

Re: (HISTORY) Tin Horns and Calico by Henry Christman - m8b1

Hey, I'm a NY State native myself, and I didn't really know about it, either, until I read this book from the library earlier this year. I had heard of the patroons, and of Peter Stuyvesant's expedition against Rensselaerswyck, in Washington Irving's "Knickerbocker's History". But from that account,...
