17 MARCH 1776 - BRITISH EVACUATION OF BOSTON - #RevolutionaryWar

After the Massachusetts militia surrounded the British occupied city of Boston in April 1775 the provincial government established the New England Army of Observation.

#Armyhistory #USArmy #TRADOC
The Continental Congress adopted that force and established the Continental Army, with Gen Washington appointed as commander in chief, in June. In the meantime, the Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on 17 June, which proved to be the only major engagement of the prolonged siege.
Washington traveled to Cambridge where he took formal command of the besieging army on 3 July 1775 and devoted the next several months to building and organizing the American force, and solving its severe logistical difficulties.

The Continental Army was in its cantonment at New Windsor - near Newburgh, NY. The American cause came close to collapsing on itself due to the soldiers' pay being seriously in arears.
A group of officers called for a meeting on 12 March, which General George Washington asked them to hold on the 15th at the Temple of Virtue, but which he would not attend.

#Armyhistory @USArmy @TRADOC #NewburghConspiracy #GeorgeWashington @SecArmy @ArmyChiefStaff
The officers wanted to plan an action to force the Continental Congress honor its pledges of back pay and pensions before the Army disbanded. Washington appeared at the meeting unexpectedly, and gave an emotional appeal to the officers' sense of duty and military virtue.

This week in #history (1777) George Washington’s army marches into Valley Forge. When you think of Valley Forge, you probably think of half-clothed & starving men, suffering through a long winter, barely surviving.

But Valley Forge was so much more than that. /1 of X #American
For one thing, the mood in Valley Forge was significantly better than you might imagine. Yes, some men were not well-clothed and suffered hardships accordingly. But . . . . /2 of X #American #history #freedom
But the men who were more fully outfitted took the difficult outdoor tasks. And everyone pitched in, finding supplies in the area around them. Did you know that they built a small city of huts to house themselves? /3 of X #American #history #freedom

The Disregard of #InformedConsent and Echoes of Nuremberg Part 2 - “The Great Pivot” - Jab hesitancy is informed, literate, and sophisticated, but government agencies, officials, and politicos pushed false narratives - by @TraderStef 4 #CrushTheStreet #ADE… Image
I am moving "The Great Pivot & Echoes of Nuremberg Part 2" #InformedConsent2 (the thread from @RWMaloneMD's gracious RT ) to my acct original here. Replies were breaking apart/not keeping continuity under his RT. Chronology is now intact. Apology for move. Image

"Finding the #smallpox to be spreading much and fearing that no precaution can prevent it from running through the whole of our Army...", General #GeorgeWashington instituted the first mandatory widespread #inoculation order in #militaryhistory on Feb 6 1777. #COVID19 #vaccines
2. GW recognized the risks especially that inoculation, unlike vaccines, led to the contraction of a "less" virulent case. "This Expedient may be attended with some inconveniences and some disadvantages, but yet I trust in its consequences will have the most happy effects."
3. But for GW it was a military necessity and an order that was needed to be given to save the army, the Revolution, and the nation.

I'm still proud of all the work that myself and all my MSM friends did destroying Trump ballots, and also amazed that only a few sharp-eyed intrepid investigators such as Natalie have figured it out
Arrest me for what? It's totally legal for the media to destroy Trump ballots.
People get mad about this but it's in the Constitution

A free press is an indispensable part of our Constitutional system of checks & balances. It disinfects government by shining a light into the back rooms & dark places where power corrupts. The only thing a free press is enemy to is authoritarianism. ImageImage
“Republics…derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”

“[T]hat man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press.” Image

As Confederate statues come down, I'm reminded of what still needs to go up. Encourage @Reagan_Airport & @Amazon to memorialize those enslaved at Abingdon: "The Virginia portion of Amazon’s HQ2 should acknowledge what lies beneath"… #slaveryarchive #DC
If you visit Abingdon ruins today, you will be transported to the past - but not to the era of slavery -- to the 1990s. At this site of a former plantation, there is no mention of the enslaved, slavery, or enslavement. Signage is entirely about enslavers. #AbingdonEasyFix 2/10
Inside the old terminal's exhibit hall, at the bottom corner of one display case, you can find the only reference to slavery. #AbingdonEasyFix 3/10

In a few days, it is Yom Kippur. It is a time of reflection, of thought.

Your party has a problem. 1) #JewishDemocrats #Antisemitism #JewHate #Democrats #YomKippur
It refuses to condemn anti-Semitism among its members in Congress, many of its Congressional Delegation refused to condemn BDS one-sided boycotts of Israel. 2) #Antisemitism #Congressmembers #Democrats #BDS #Israel
Much of the Congressional & Senate delegations run to get the endorsement of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, & few object, in fact, few of the Jewish Democrats in Congress object with the exception of Ted Deutch. 3) #Democrats #Endorsements #JewHaters #Farrakhan #JewishDemocrats

For #GeorgeWashington, Great Britain waged a tariff war against the US, believing US States "never could unite in opposition to it". Until proven otherwise, the US would remain "in a ridiculous point of view in the eyes of the nations of the earth". Sounds familiar? #EUisthenewUS
In 1783, #Hamilton noted that "the road to popularity in each state is to inspire jealousy of the power of Congress, though nothing can be more apparent that [Congress has] no power." Sounds familiar? #EuroBashing #EuropeanParliament #EUisthenewUS
In 1787, Charles Pinckney of #SouthCarolina had concluded that the "depressed situation of the union is undoubtedly owing" to this "absurd" requirement of unanimous consent for amendments. Sounds familiar? #EUreform #TreatyChange #EUisthenewUS

So, let me do a bit of story time on @KanyeWest, since he thinks he's out of The Sunken Place. And I can't thank @JordanPeele enough for his metaphor.
*stirs tea in teacup*.
I have a confession. The only reason why I am not mad at @KanyeWest right now is because I have held a petty grudge against him for many years because he had a mother with a Ph.D. who taught Literature at Chicago State University, yet he named his first album, "College Dropout."
I did not mean to hold the grudge that long; but it just continued because of everything I would feel every single time I saw that album and thought about not only his Mother but everything at Chicago State University, home of the Gwendolyn Brooks Black Writer's Conference.
