"Six nine inches ball ammo and it was much more tight fitting and so executing the same tactics as british. I mean almost identical down to the reload drill including when the prussian nobleman baron. Von steuben showed up in north america and he. He rewrote the american rifle. Drill cutting off a couple of steps and all that that worked. That was nice. We're grateful to him and his manual of arms as it was called but the fact that the men were carrying a better musket than the by by the end of the war had slightly more to do with it because now the americans with that with that smaller caliber that actually fit the muzzle. A little better. They could engage the british more effectively from from a farther distance. And this was obvious. Any american who'd been firing brown best from seventeen. Seventy seven to seventy eight to seventy nine to seventeen eighty would say you know if i can have a rifle with a slightly longer reach which we should be able to make right here in north america. Then we could get these guys who he get these red coats out about fifty yards to seventy five yards. They would never be in their normal engagement rent. Was it turns out. The british made the charlottesville and it functioned the same. As the brown best wasn't real hard to retrain on it and the the revolutionary war didn't pivot on getting a slightly smaller. Musket that could fire further but it went a long long way all right back the second a little more about the the small arms of the revolutionary war here for july third. Twenty twenty one.

They looked at Boston Harbor which was stupidly left vulnerable from the evacuation. They came to Boston and then they just did not fortify hills around the city.

Wow went around and Georges Island is one of the first cities like you have to dig in here and there and if any ship comes any which way now, you don't have to send anyone out.

Upon spotting the British Washington retreated across the sky, Kill river and destroyed the bridge. After engaging the British for a short time across the river, Washington returned to White Marsh, delaying their march to Valley Forge for several days. Continental Army finally arrived at Valley Forge on December 19 to face a winter of starvation, disease and death.

Sherman intended to make Georgia Howl plan approved by President Lincoln and General Grant City of Savannah was fortified and defended by 10,000 Confederates under General William Hardy. The rebels flooded the rice fields around Savannah and Sherman was running low on supplies. So he director General Howard to the coast to locate friendly ships. Howard dispatched captain William Duncan to contact the Union fleet. Duncan located a union gunboats. I carried him to Hilton Head.

Quote yesterday, President proclaimed December 7th 1941 a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

Roosevelt 10 minute speech, ending with an oath so help us God was greeted in the house by thunderous applause and stamping of feet. Within one hour. The president had his declaration of war. He signed it at 4:10 P.m., wearing a black armband to symbolize morning for those lost at Pearl Harbor. On 10. December 1941 World War 2 4000 Japanese troops landed on the Philippine islands. While Japanese aircraft sunk the British warships, Prince of Wales and Repulse Guam and American controlled territory was also seized. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill exclaimed. We have lost control of the sea. The attack on Pearl Harbor was only one step in a larger plan for dominated Pacific, which entailed knocking out first American, then British naval opposition. Japanese bombing raids on Guam, Midway Island and Wake Island followed the Pearl Harbor attack US airfields there were destroyed as we're in Clark and even airfields in the Philippines. Wiping out over half of the U. S aircraft in the area. Then on December 10th 2000, Japanese troops landed on the Philippine islands at Luzon in the north and another 2000 landed on the western coast.

LGBT now see I'm not in a community LGBT month which means you know Oh break it's like you know black history month February I think Latin history is GonNa get your phone calls it's either March march April I forget I don't want to say because I don't want to lump in Cinco de Mayo thing oh it's gotta be may cause it's probably is mad I don't know but October is now and every day is a national thing in every week's got a national thing so October is national? LGBT awareness month of course they picked the scariest month but the scariest thing but that's just my opinion that's just my opinion and what's scary is Kellogg's has come out with a special commander commitment number two box of cereal did he just he just got up celtics has come out with a a new box of cereal and has called the altogether cereal this is a small video grabbing what the Kellogg's intention is why does cereal came out Kellogg's is doing this in support of glads Spirit Day glad spirit EH is always observed in the third week of October and it's used as a way to speak out against LGBTQ bullying and harassed Smith that the LGBTQ community may face so I misspoke it it's not the whole month the third week it's kind of like Thanksgiving is always like the there's a of November so the third week of October it I guess is an full week like what if the first falls on a Friday Saturday Sunday Monday than the Monday it would be the fourth and then that would be would that be considered week number one I don't know the third Thursday is easy to remember for Thanksgiving the third week full week Half Week I don't know they got to be a little bit more together on this serial wearing the color purple is a way to support all the Lgbtq community on Spirit Day now on Spirit Day because I thought Purple Representative I think it's not autism it's something else there's something else that's purple deep purple on the trees you're not allowed to hunt in that area but and the Thai maybe you're not allowed to lgbt you've got the purple into their cereal and made the new box for the we all belong together cereal the color purple it's a really Nice Shavkat got some nice gradients on it and it does feature all the mascots and Kelloggs different serials like frosted flakes fruit loops rice krispies raisin brands frosted mini wheats and corn likes cereal mascots Tony The tiger so I think what they've done is thrown all these the cereals all one ball I'm looking at the ball right now if you're watching us on the channel under the tent you see all the mascots and stuff all she is fruit loops shredded we and maybe some rice krispies in their self worth. It's Kinda like that I forget. who makes it but there's a bag of chips that are out there that has like doritos pretzels cheetos all in one bag it's like all the crap when the Pallets Bust in the warehouse they kind of just sweep it all in one thing and shove it in a bag it's all the busted busted stuff from all the the and that's what this is I think all the busted boxes from different cereals they just it all one ben and they go what are we doing all these bins of mix cereal guess what no bully no bullying too can Sam snap crackle and pop Jesus on the box together they're holding hands and smiling just showing that symbolism of belonging together this is a really nice promotion tie in because Kellogg's inches doing this as a cash grab maybe they are maybe they aren't they aren't making a very generous fifty thousand for donation to glad to support their efforts wait wait did he say fifty th a generous fifty thousand dollars fifty thousand dollars so you me you've got millions of millions of boxes of cereal and you are literally paying fifty thousand dollars to the the glad Hawes here with everything that they're trying to do that doesn't make sense Y se doesn't make sense that just shows they don't have a whole lot of support behind it I'm just saying I mean that's that's now a lot of support behind I mean Kellogg's can say here's fifty thousand dollars a kid you're bothering me type thing so they through the two thousand dollars hey we're doing something doing something I don't know they're blending all the cereals together and calling it and we're all together to promote not bullying LGBT community and something that's got us all confused speaking of bullying something that's got us all confused I say all confused a lot of us are you aware that they are now no mandatory scheduled to teach the history not literally the history of LGBT in schools but some of the schools are now saying in writing the history books hey guess what member Benjamin Franklin yeah he was gay not that he was gay I'm just saying but they're going back through the history books and they're they're tagging the rewriting history the way it was I mean granted you know there's an old old saying that says only the winners of wars right the history books because the losers of course Arnon around to to write it so here we are now writing they're rewriting history books it's controversial because some publishers we're not comfortable identified people is gay out themselves or the conclusion lacked evidence in secondly these courses are not optional meaning parents cannot doubt that means your kids are being taught the lgbt not lessons but who is lesbian gay bisexual transsexual throughout history welcome to elementary cool where in California the law requires a fair accurate inclusive and respectful treatment of lesbian gay bi and transsexual Americans I think is going on here I is An effort to a politicized now this guy could have been he was a little weird looking to make anybody hey we're not saying the incident agenda we're not saying that these people are better than other people what we're saying is the writer the guy who does the books this is another group of American publisher faced certain prejudices state required publishers like Mark Jarrett to include the sexual preferences of prominent historical figures among others activists lean atoms now I don't understand why it says that they have to they have to include the sexual preference of each person behind their name like you know gay person all other like they're talking to emily let's see them writers Emily Dickinson and then you'll Hawthorne and President James Buchanan though evidence is inconclusive see that's thing you go back so far it's allegedly allegedly he was gay just because he didn't have a wife or he didn't have a partner or anything like that we should say then he never married he had a very good friend who was living with him he may have been gay on the other hand I know at least ten or fifteen guys that that have never been married in have a friend it's called a roommate that they live with because they are for whatever reason they're they're they're not established they don't have a good job or they spend their money Liane frivolous things and they have a roommate are they now at that time being gay was seen as something evil and wrong the state approved Jarrett's taxed for eighth graders in it he refers to stagecoach driver Charley Parkhurst as a woman who identified as a man Baron von Steuben who helped Washington forge may have been gay poet Walt Whitman Man may have been gay was drawn the young men in parks and dancehalls but denied his same sex preferences in public much of this is speculation is not good history yeah it it's it's not good history if you start saying stuff like this and then I mean you're little it's not enough to learn history without confusing the people that are I mean these youngsters these kids Ab- and then throw sexual preference publishers who refused label some figures as gay and forced another to insert the word lesbian when referring to astronaut Sally ride why versus because why why do the throw in Lesbian Sally ride what if she had like one arm missing amputee sally right and and what if she was a lesbian an-and amputee lesbian amputee less Sally Ride Blah Blah Blah astronaut and stuff like that I mean when do we stop you know when they say let's all get together let's all get along then we but yet we're still labeling people and putting them inboxes we're putting them in little compartments and now we're trying to justify or or label these people these people a couple episodes go but it's confusing is confusing to do all that just let history be history let black and white let's let's you know Spanish Latin community amputee gay lesbian just throw that out out of the way and just teach about history this person discovered the cotton gin this person discovered electricity this person was the first president now granted mail and female this is the first female this is the first president or first female this first female that I can understand that does it stop where does it stop I don't I don't know well there you go there you go whereas us up I don't know where it stops but guess what's GonNa Coming up Halloween Halloween coming up right around the corner can't stop that from happening we come back I'm GonNa talk about some spooky things that people are talking about and.

"With Robert Allison talking about Henry Knox. But also talking about as you follow Henry Knox. You follow the revolution? It was Washington's right hand, man. A trusted guy. He didn't Washington and feel like he had a spell out everything. That's probably why I liked him so much. Hey, go bring those cannon New York. Let me know when you get there. And Martha Martha also took to Lucy knocks. They were introduced when Henry I came on as a Colonel and Martha and Lucy really took to each other. And actually Martha was with George through most of the war and Lucy was with Henry and Catherine green, Katie green, the Green's wife. So you have this social circle among the wives we couple's three couples. Yeah. And they and they were at Valley Forge to the Lucy knocks was at Valley Forge so as Henry knock. So as Washington, of course, and that, of course. It's one of the great stories of the war. The forging of this army during the brutal winter of seventeen seventy seven seventy eight at Valley Forge when the troops are drilling under baron von Steuben, this German officer who claim to have been served under Frederick the great. He was actually in Frederick, the great household staff, but he served coffee, of course, that's more than you. And I did so but Steuben really knows how to train the officers. So it's a better trained army that comes out of valley. Forge before we get there. We have the debacle at New York. The army can't hold onto New York. New York is burned and Washington's army is pushed across New Jersey retreats across New Jersey. There about thirty thousand men in the army at New York by the time, they reached the banks of the Delaware. There are about three thousand. It's now the end of December. It goes from what number two wet number thirty thousand to three thousand a lot of them. Just we're done. We're done this isn't gonna work and as you get to the crossing. The delaware. And that's act on it. Wasn't that done in December? Because yes, there hits was up there. Yeah. And they didn't have the money to pay for them against schedule. Washington knew that these men are gonna disappear at the end of the month, and he can't stop them. But you also knows if they don't do something no one is going to sign up in the spring. And so the revolution is going to be over Washington's goal has been keep the army together. But now the army's disappearing of its own volition, so he has to do something dramatic. So he plans this he's going across the Delaware. He actually got all of the boats from the east side of the Delaware. Take took them over to Pennsylvania to the British couldn't follow him and the British put hessian troops in the camp, Trenton, they're occupying Trenton as well as Princeton. And then most of the British army goes to New York and they're packing up to go back to England because the revolution is over a figure. That's it. Yeah. Cornwallis on a ship. Getting ready to go back to England. When Washington comes across the Delaware on Christmas night, Washington in NOx NOx brings the cannon across. The delaware. Washington had planned for three different units to cross the Delaware. And they synchronize the time they're going to do this. He his is the only one that makes it the others decide we can't get it across Washington. Washington had written the code word for this operation was victory or death. And okay. And so they get in so Knox places the cannon at either ends of the main street and knocks is the only group that made it over the Cox in Washington. And so they get their and they surprise the hessian. It's early in the morning. One of the midst is the heavens were trumped not true. These guys were pretty good soldiers. And so they are sticking by surprise and about nine hundred of them surrender. And then they're simply told, you know, we don't have a prisoner of war camps. Believe me, a March South and their Maryland Virginia and a lot of them wind up staying, I know people whose ancestors are here because they were captured a Trenton, so they take their weapons away. Yeah. Usable has and then also the headlines on their way across New Jersey had done a lot of looting. So Washington posts notices in the New Jersey papers, if you're missing property because these guys are preparing to go back to Germany and they've taken clocks. I I don't know why you would need a clock if you're from Germany, but right up they've looted if you've lost any property here in Trenton, you can come and get it. So he's really turning stuff to the civilians in New Jersey. Rumor New Jersey was a lawyer loyal to the crown until the crowns army marches through New Jersey and really brutalizes. The population is a German sick. These people are rebels, and we don't like rebels where we're from. So we whatever we do is fair game. So they told them to Mark south on the chaperoned. Just chaperone Virginia go to Maryland. And there are towns where they are put up with h, you know, shackled with no, no, they're then they're held, you know, they can be exchanged or sometimes you call your it's a parole of honor. Okay. You're not gonna fight any. So you have this parole of honor. Sometimes when Burgoyne armies captured at Saratoga in seventeen seventy seventy convention army because they signed a convention. Okay. You guys you'll March to Boston. And then you'll get a ship that will take England eventually because we don't have the wherewithal to keep you, and we can't keep three thousand men. You don't wanna kill ya. Yeah. We can't exactly the British on the other hand do have these big old prison ships that they have in New York harbor that a prison ships and a lot of guys go on them and die and the British also take people across the ocean to prisons in England. But you know, we didn't hadn't built big enough prisons yet to accommodate the prisoners of war. I'm trying to understand the procession. How many of these nine nine hundred or so who have been disarmed are chaperoned by how many people that not that many? Because you can't spare that many guys and these guys. Wouldn't run away or overwhelmed? The few people that were with them. Well, because why would they I mean, they really didn't want to be here. They're not really getting paid the guy who has their prince is getting paid. But they're not. And here you say, okay. Look here, you can get cheap land. All right, go to work for someone. Yeah. Exactly. That's what that's what the goal is. Okay. And remember they're about a third of the population in Pennsylvania speaks German as their first link right as well. As in Maryland. So you have already a German population here. The advantage the British had seen in the Russians was no one in America speaks Russian. But there are German speakers in America. So yeah, you can become part of this society. All right again, this this attack. It was it was ways by only one third of the remaining three thousand two thousand one thousand. Yeah. Of the Americans defeated the nine hundred troops who are kind of crack troops. These rag tag people beat the professionals based solely upon surprise surprise is the big element here. They just didn't. No one's expecting. Them, and they are in their underwear. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And then, of course, word gets back to New York and so- Cornwallis gets off his boat. He brings his army across New Jersey. So by early January. His army is preparing to demolish Washington's army, Trenton, and the story is the Washington and his troops are on one side of this little the punk river, which is just south of Trenton. Now, I guess it's in the middle of Trenton and Cornwallis and his army on the other side and Cornwallis has a conference with his generals who they all say, we should attack. But Cornwall says men have just marched across New Jersey. And he says we have the old FOX trapped will go bag him tomorrow. Really? Meanwhile, in Washington's council of war, someone says, I was just talking to a local tells me there's this back road where we can go around this British force and attacked the rear of the British army at Princeton. So Washington and his arm. I say leave the campfires burning at the front lines, and they make all the guys that are make as much noise as they can the rest of the army takes this very icy back road. And so at dawn the next morning when Cornwallis is preparing to attack. Washington's army, a Trenton all of a sudden, here's God can guns firing in Princeton to the rear, and you realize Washington's army has broken through there and is attacking the rear and during this attack.
