NEW MAP: Northern Eurasia 2015: Syrian Civil War (30 Sep 2015) https://buff.ly/2NoTu7J The expansion of Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) in northern Iraq in 2014 prompted a US-led intervention in support of the Iraqi government. Facing new opposition in Iraq, Daesh increased its activity in neighboring Syria instead, exacerbating the civil war already raging in that country. Wary that the Syrian government—which had close military ties with Russia—might fall either to Daesh or to US-backed rebel factions, the Russians began mounting airstrikes in support of the regime. #northerneurasia #history #welovemaps #map #2010s #2015 #donetskrepublic #daesh #iraq #kazakhstan #kyrgyzstan #luhanskrepublic #russia #russianhistory #september #september30 #syria #syrianrebels #ukraine #unitedstates #maps #isis #isil #islamicstate #syriancivilwar #iraqcivilwar #historybuff #historygeek
In 1870, Prussian artillery raised the curtain on the final act of the Franco-Prussian War with the seige of Paris. In a few months, Germany will be united into a mighty Empire that will bounce Europe around like a beachball. #europeanhistory #german #germanhistory #france #frenchhistory #franco -prussianwar #worldcivilzations #war #warfare #germany #france #ninteenthcentury #history #historybuff #historygeek
Jenny Lee Snow and Elvira Snow (aka Pip and Flip) were two siblings with microcephaly who were majorly popular in sideshows in the early 1900's. This disease (billed as "Pinheads") caused them to have toddler like mentalities, showing the innocence that brought adoration from their crowds. At their peak they were earning as much as $75 per week - equivalent to nearly two grand today. This was during the depression era and an astounding amount to make. Unfortunately Jenny could not enjoy her fame, dying young in her early 20's. Elvira however lived a long life, passing of age in 1976. #photo #photoshop #history #historybuff #historical #historyporn #historicalphotos #color #blackandwhite #colorize #colorized #colorization #colorizing #colorizedhistory #colorizedhistoricalphotos #colorizedphoto #pipandflip #flipandpip #freak #freaks #freakshow #sideshow #pinhead #pinheads #ahs #americanhorrorstory
Ever Wondered about The Pretty Tea Set that You Might be Sipping your Morning Tea From? Vast geopolitical forces lie behind the creation of this simple tea set. In Britain between 1840 and 1900 the consumption of tea and sugar quadrupled. Mass consumption required mass production on an industrial scale and huge tea plantations were developed by the British in India and Sri Lanka!

I am drawn to the past, not with a sense of yearning or regret, but with a sense of belonging. I get this sense from the earth and its eons, from dinosaur prints and steam engine trains, even from yesterday. It's because I'm somehow connected to all these different places and times, that somehow time is standing still and that I am a part of every moment that ever was. #durangocolorado #durangotrain #mydurangotrainmoment #coloradogram #train #traintracks #railroad #historybuff #igcolorado #pastlife #belong #colorandlight #bluesky #ilovetrains #vsco #vscocam #vscophile #durangosilvertontrain #skyporn #clouds #morningsun #morninglight #rsa_rural #ipulledoverforthis #past #everymoment #explore #discover

Roger Williams wrote the first Indigenous-English dictionary. He also apparently took crazy code-like annotations in other texts. #WhatCheer Supposedly, he wanted to befriend and co-exist with the indigenous peoples of different cultures. His dictionary is not just a phrase book but a claim against white supremacy and settler colonialism in favor of cooperation between people+environments. He was later imprisoned in Boston for arguing against private property and land ownership as an advocate for communal, #sharedspaces . Providence still prides itself on tolerance and hope. ⚓️ But our understanding of history could evolve past recognizing only certain individuals as heros... It’s never just one person; it’s all the little ways we *accept* and *support* and *hear* one another’s differences and *refuse* to see ourselves as superior or separate and *act* to build our communities up. Stop building walls, start building trust.

"🇳🇱 K-class sloop" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇳🇱 A port bow view of the Royal Netherlands Navy K-class sloop HNLMS Van Speijk (F805), docked in harbor in the Netherlands, after the Second World War. — Koninklijke Marine/Royal Netherlands Navy -------------------------------------------- The K-class was a class of three sloops designed in the late 1930s to replace the Brinio-class gunboats of the Royal Netherlands Navy. Originally seven ships where planned of which three ships where laid down and two more ordered (which were canceled after the German invasion of the Netherlands, May 10th - May 17th, 1940) during the Second World War. -------------------------------------------- The K1 and K3 were laid down at the P. Smit Jr, Rotterdam shipyard, Netherlands, in 1939. K2 was laid down at Gusto N.V., Schiedam shipyard also in 1939. Still incomplete at the start of the German invasion of the Netherlands and not yet launched, the three ships were found undamaged by the invading German forces and the Kriegsmarine ordered the completion of K1, K2 and K3. K1 was launched on November 23rd, 1940. Both K2 and K3 were launched in 1941 on June 28th and March 22nd. The three ships were commissioned in 1941 and 1942 into the Kriegsmarine. -------------------------------------------- During the Second World War, the three ships saw service in Norwegian and German home waters. K1 sank near Aarhus, (Denmark) on May 5th, 1945. K2 was found in Horten, (Norway) by Dutch military forces in 1945 after the end of the Second World War and towed back to Delfzijl, (Netherlands) where she sank by accident in November 1945. The ship was raised on July 26th, 1946 and towed to Den Helder, (Netherlands) where the ship was sold for scrap in October 1947 after inspection. After the Second World War, only K3 entered Dutch service as HNLMS Van Speijk (F805) after she was repaired at the Rijkswerf at Amsterdam, (Netherlands). The ship was sold for scrap August 29th, 1960. — #🇳🇱NetherlandsDuringWWII

Bell Krater (mixing bowl) Greek Early Classical Period, ca. 470 B.C. Attributed to the Pan Painter, Athens. Artemis shoots an arrow at Actaeon, who has fallen to the ground attacked by his hunting dogs. Museum of Fine Arts Boston @mfaboston Actaeon had over 30 hunting dogs. With names like Zephyr and Aura, you could be forgiven for thinking that these floofers were gentle puppers and not the fierce hunting hounds they were. These doggos did not mess around when it was time to tear apart their prey. On this occasion, their master Actaeon was no exception. Actaeon had seen Artemis in the nude: a forbidden sight. In retaliation she turns him into a stag and he is swiftly made into a tasty treat for his dogs. On this vase, however, Actaeon is represented in a human form for narrative clarity. There are some myths, however, where the puppers realise who their meal was and fall into a deep depression. The centaur Chiron crafts a statue of Actaeon in his cave and the puppers remain at the statue's feet forever. #dogstagram #ancientgreece #greekart #phd #ancientart #ancienthistory #instadog #hounds #phdlife #dogsofinstagram #historybuff #historylovers #archaeology #museumfinds #museum #vase #ceramics #pottery #mythology #academia #myth #handmade #handpainted #terracotta #mfaboston #hund #historia #classics #classicalart #cane
There were a number of reasons why the British First Airborne at Arnhem and ultimately Operation Market Garden failed. The most significant was the failure to capture Nijmegen Bridge the first day. Major-General James Gavin’s 82nd Airborne Division was told to prioritized and hold Groesbeek Heights, which overlooked the Reichswald to the south-east of Nijmegen. It was thought the German 406th infantry was hidden there with armored support. (This was actually completely false, there was no German presence) Their delayed advance on Nijmegen bridge (seven hours) allowed the German SS 10th Panzer division to advance north to Arnhem, dig in and reenforced the north side of the bridge, preventing its capture. It wasn’t until the third day of the operation when British XXX corps arrived with tanks, that Nijmegen was captured along side the 82nd Airborne. The Germans also effectively blocked the road north delaying the Allied breakthrough another 2 days. By this point it was too late for the paratroopers in Arnhem. Elements of the 9th SS Panzer Division and 10th SS Panzer Division surrounded and decimated the British 1st Airborne Division. Of the 10,000 men who had landed to take Arnhem, 1,400 were killed and over 6,000 captured; only 2,400 paratroopers managed to safely cross to the south bank of the Rhine and withdraw.
Bust of old Abe Lincoln. What do you see in his expression? I see a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. A face fixed with a poignant expression.

Somehow I wanted to rewatch this episode of "History Buffs" in which Nick discussed the movie 1492 which was made to celebrate Christopher Columbus's arrival in the new world And Nicks review is damning. And he is right. Back in the 90s and as a teen I thought it to be accurate but it isn't. Not a all. Now, many were told either bullshit or nothing about the true Columbus. Anyway...it still is a "fun" (even if the true history he talks about in the episode isn't) episode that should be watched every Columbus Day. 😉 Sidenote: History Buffs is a Youtube channel hosted by Nick Hodges who reviews historical movies or movies that want to be historical. And there are some he really loves and some not so much ; and he seems to be as accurate as he can be in his reviews which is why it takes weeks or even months until a new episode is uploaded. Now, there are of course things you might agree or disagree there and even Nick is okay with inaccuracies as long as they are not intended to draw a totally false picture of the past but as for the historical facts I'd like to quote John Adams: "Facts are stubborn things ( and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.)" And the facts, especially when it comes to movies like "1492" cannot be set aside. #history #movies #movie #historical #historicalmovies #film #filmbuff #historyfilm #historicalfilm #1492 #christophercolumbus #youtube #historybuff #historybuffs #nickhodges #america
#ARTHISTORY : Pointillism was a Neo-Impressionist technique developed in the 1880's by Paul Signac and Georges Seurat. Initially it was a reaction to Impressionism, which was the subjective vision of artists at the time. Pointillism demanded a more scientific approach to art, one that required artists to carefully place dots of unmixed color to make a painting. Signac and Seurat believed that the colors would be blended by the viewer's eye to create an image that was more compelling than a conventional painting. Michel Chevreul, a French chemist, wrote about the science of Pointillism as a phenomenon when two complementary colors juxtapose one another. Many Pointillists drew from Chevreul's findings in their own paintings! The work featured here is "The Pink Cloud, Antibes" (1916) by Paul Signac. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nugallery360 #history #art #historyofart #artoftheday #historicart #artfiend #iloveart #artist #historicartist #artistsinhistory #artgallery #artoftheday #contemporaryart #artlife #historybuff #historylover #galleryart #artwork #artworkoftheday
Two groups of officers observe USS Arizona (BB-39) passing out of the Elizabeth River and into the Chesapeake Bay, 11 December 1930. One of Arizona’s three Vought O3U-3 floatplanes is circling around towards the tip of Norfolk, visible just to the right of the pylon on the left. Some of the battleship’s complement are gathered along the rails on the bow, taking in the sights of their departure and the observers ashore. I’m unsure what branch the men on the pier are a part of, but this photo is listed on Navsource as taken in Norfolk so my guess is this is one of the northernmost berths at Naval Station Norfolk; from the date of the base’s establishment in April 1917 through 1952, the facility was known as Naval Operating Base Norfolk. The change from NOB Norfolk to NS Norfolk occurred on 1 January 1953 when Naval Air Station Norfolk was put under the same command as the NOB.

Representation of Charles XII of Sweden, shot dead during the siege of Fredriksten in 1718. After Charles XII had returned from the Ottoman Empire and resumed personal control of the war effort, he initiated two Norwegian Campaigns, starting in February 1716, to force Denmark–Norway into a separate peace treaty. Furthermore, he attempted to bar Great Britain access to the Baltic Sea. In search for allies, Charles XII also negotiated with the British Jacobite party. This resulted in Great Britain declaring war on Sweden in 1717. The Norwegian campaigns were halted and the army withdrawn when Charles XII was shot dead while besieging Norwegian Fredriksten on 30 November 1718. #history #historynerd #historygeek #historybuff #historylesson #historyteacher #historylover #historyfacts #medieval #medievaltimes #medievalworld #ancient #antiquity #culture #viking #vikings #military #militaryhistory #ancienthistory #archaeology #worldhistory #war #ancientrome #knowhistory #antique #historia

The British major who brought an umbrella into battle! Troops knew Major Digby Tatham-Warter by the umbrella he carried because, as he said, he "couldn't remember passwords and anyone would recognize the bloody fool carrying the umbrella as an Englishman." When a fellow officer told him "that thing won't do you any good", he replied "Oh my goodness Pat, but what if it rains? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the Battle of Arnhem, part of Operation Market Garden, he disabled a German armoured car with his umbrella, incapacitating the driver by shoving the umbrella through the car's observational slit and poking the driver in the eye. Digby contributed greatly to the morale of the defenders, and even when defeat was imminent, spirits were always very high. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Out of ammunition and cut off from the rest of the Allied forces, Digby and his men send a last radio message – “out of ammo, God save the King” – and surrendered. Having been wounded, Digby was sent to a local hospital upon being captured where he eventually escaped with a fellow officer. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Order upon his return to the United Kingdom. (Photo: The character Major Carlyle (played by Christopher Good) in the 1977 epic war film 'A Bridge Too Far' was based on real-life Major Digby.)

"🇩🇪 MS Tannenfels (1938)" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇩🇪 The German cargo ship MS Tannenfels (1938), in port in 1938. http://www.korabli.eu/images/kreysera/germaniya/vspomogatelnye/mihel/izobrazheniya/full/tannenfels.jpg (copyright expired) -------------------------------------------- The MS Tannenfels was a German cargo ship owned by Deutshe Dampfschiffahrts-Gesellschaft Hansa) — (DDG Hansa), the ship was built in Bremen, Germany. Launched on April 9th, 1938 and commissioned into service on June 11th, 1938. When the Second World War began in Europe on September 1st, 1939, MS Tannenfels (1938) was in the Port city of Kismayo (modern day Somalia, in Italian Somaliland. She remained there until January 1941, when British troops entered Italian Somaliland — (this was during the Abyssinian Campaign (June 10th, 1940 - November 9th, 1943) in the Second World War). She then sailed for Europe via the Cape of Good Hope, eventually reaching German-occupied France sometime in 1941. -------------------------------------------- She was taken over by the Kriegsmarine and commissioned as an auxiliary naval vessel. The former cargo ship was fitted with machine guns and some larger naval guns — (15 cm SK C/28) for self-defense. During the next year and a half, she was employed as a blockade runner, slipping past British patrols to deliver supplies to German armed merchant cruisers at sea, one of these ships may have been the Deutschland-class heavy cruiser Admiral Scheer. In December 1942 at Bordeaux, German-occupied France, she was damaged by limpet mines placed by British commandos (Operation Frankton, December 7th - 12th, 1942), and was no longer seaworthy. The MS Tannenfels (1938) was eventually scuttled as a blockship in the Gironde River, Southwest France in 1944.
#Repost @ww1historia • • • • • Three boys in the imperial Russian army, their ages ranging from 11-14. An observer in Russia noted that durring the war, boys were among the most common, and patriotic volunteers. At the beginning of the war such young volunteers were intentionally not used in combat, but as the war progressed and the Russian army faced immense losses, these boy soldiers were called to the front. Thousands of these boys served in the Russian army and Navy throughout the conflict with many not surviving the slaughter of the Eastern front. 🇷🇺 #lestweforget #war #battle #russia #ww1 #thegreatwar #greatwar #russian #russianempire #history #historical #historybuff #historic
