"Was done. What does your gut tell you about why. They fought so hard. And we're just talking about trying to recruit Again in the one of the most diversities in the country just trying to recruit some more by the department reflects what the racist racist. That's america's a racist country always has been probably always will find different. I mean you know the racism the department from top to bottom without question and There was no desire to change it and they had to be forced to change it. You know i mean just like that. But any and all aspects of american life and find different so while captain washington has been frustrated that the department would not make changes without a judge's order. Those court orders have had a significant impact. A court monitor has overseen fda the hiring practices to twenty eleven and starting in two thousand thirteen. The d. y. was under court order to implement new hiring standards. These included giving some minority applicants who had failed a previous exam. A chance to be taken as of twenty thirteen numbers. The blacks coming on increased by law. And so have the numbers of hispanics and women in every other who've kala that same year twenty thirteen mark the most diverse incoming class of firefighters in new york city history with people of color making up over sixty percent of the new hires. Well the numbers have gone up certainly blacks. Now we're at about We're about eight nine percent which is about the national average although although most major cities have much high percentages so we still got a long way to go. But we're we're out of that two three percent that we'd historically been in but ironically more blacks coming into fire department more friction than a lot of houses houses. That never had any black firefighters. Now have black firefighters or house. That might have two or three black firefighters. Now has you know seven or eight and so it causes Election in those areas. I s kept in washington with the changes in the written exam. Might have meant for keith. And kevin maynard back in the early nineties separated by one point and that meant the difference between one getting a job and whatnot and test that we give today's much better indicator and look cabin didn't make the cut but he goes to houston to a big department down there and becomes a lieutenant. There's no question he could have been. Excellent firefighter here in new york city. So people like kevin would have been able to get onto the job now and we're glad that way we've been able to make that difference. Kevin maynard knows his brother would've been happy to see the hartford changes. The book society was able to achieve especially regarding the increase in new black firefighters. Still it's hard for kevin to see his brothers dream come true without him here to experience it. The brother was committed to diversifying the forest. And since nine eleven the number jumped from like two to three percent to nine percent. Yeah imagine a threefold increase. Yeah what's it like for you to come back home and see you know brothers and sisters like with their uniform on on those engines or what does how does that were you know as a to focus is good to see. I go back to new york. Tend to see more younger after my kozani spy trucks for me. I think i wanted him to be around to see. So you have that sense of guilt man. I wish that effort you put in base here see the because he wanted to move back to the neighborhood in brooklyn so you wanted to open up. I wanna be. I hear so people can see me and say opportunity to view is open to you. Just come on kevin's planning to be in new york this year for the voca societies memorial to the twelve phone firefighters. It'll be held in a small park in brooklyn here. We are at another anniversary of nine. Eleven and i wonder when you think back and reflect on the years that have passed since and that day. How do you think about this moment. And processes monopoly. Moment is deeply personal to you. How do you reflect on this moment. Here we are twenty years later. You know i think my affection story. They actually earlier this year. Career born in january eighteen and i realized man. It's been twenty years. You know what i'm saying. I have been out for twenty years so we've always celebrated but give so and then i stopped doing it. It seems like resisted in those. You're going to every year van. Now you go to Emotions but i think because it's twenty years and they so much hype You know it's it puts a lot of pressure on us over. You know you had to act or what to portray because you don't wanna be attacked person. That's overly emotional. But you don't wanna be net of emotions. You wanna be private. But then you're forced to because everybody wants to know. I realized nine eleven just not only affects me as part of everyone. I'm just the one holding the the burden of it. Everybody remembers it. I have the person sacrifice. And that's the difference. I've always put june tampa. China tend not to watch tv because they don't like to see the bill and comes down when the building coming down. Then i realize this is the end of my brother. So i i tend to turn away from it. Does it ever get an easier. Not really the only thing is easy for you to do in a sense but you still have that sense of loss. 'cause you know sometimes i look at myself in the mirror and now got gray hair in doesn't look at him he doesn't have a here. You know it's it's you you kinda it dawns in un. Sometimes when i i remember a few guilty for begetting so you have these emotions that you with and especially around this time of year and in nominee fire department in a lot of guys come up to me and ask questions and so It's easy to talk about it. What do you hold onto when you think about like the goodness of your brother and the goodness of your relationship i think what i what i hold onto is in going up at some point. I want to dress like anymore. You want your own identity. Be now wish. I had the opportunity to remember. Just stuff that stuff that we did. I will young.

"Year following nine eleven kevin maynard was grieving the loss of his brother. He traveled to colorado springs to attend a memorial service for fallen firefighters and he met someone from the houston fire department. We had a conversation because he thought it was a firefighter. In new york of the t shirt. I don't and i told him no. I work in houston hughes. Hey viral medicine. Hand in he kenner. He's took my numbers. I'm gonna send you application but you meet people in. Okay yeah we say this to you in the actually did he actually call me. And he's pushing me to do it. Kevin hadn't thought about firefighting awhile at this point at had been nearly a decade since the firefighting test back in new york. But this guy. He just wasn't taking no for an answer. I wasn't he persistent and i didn't wanna be for lack of ungrateful so that application and take the test and i thought the process was like in new york where you actually waited five years to get on us out big in five years. Forget me and i just moved home and life but the houston fire department. Didn't forget him. Kevin received a phone call asking him to come down to the department to take a physical test. It was nothing like the process back in new york a couple of months after the exam he was asked to come take a final class in september. I got on september date. Hide is september eleventh two thousand and two. We just happen to be that. Yeah just happened to be desks crazy so when you were going through the process for as you did like automobile rooted his guy you end up getting in the process affairs. But how much was your brother planning your mind when you were walking through. The steps played on my phone because i hate it. I didn't want any guys in my cabinet. Class to know in exciting with the pressure and at a different treatments. I went to the cabinet. I think when i get to almost end of it when it really hit me that i am actually do what he did and so. I got emotionally on the last day. Kevin didn't tell us fellow classmates about his brother and his personal connection to nine eleven but they were twins and one of his classmates saw a picture of keith. On one of those memorials for the fallen firefighters pretty soon. They figured it out on their graduation. We went to ceremony and the chiefs at hates somebody wanting to speak to you so i thought i got in trouble ready for an i ready. Yeah just graduated but then apparently the guys that woke my brother from new york came down a few of his brothers fellow. Firefighters had surprised. Kevin flew down for his graduation and when they got to my name it stopped name was going on and then these guys came. They actually call you up to pin number badge on you. You know sense. I mean kevin has now been with houston fire for over eighteen years. He's currently lieutenant in a majority black firehouse and as he's moved up the ladder. He's thought of his brother. Every step of the way so many times a fire truck. And i've i've gone to a point where he hasn't gotten to have gotten promoted and he didn't get a chance to get promoted. It's like you you continuing where he left us effort that way when actually okay i can. I'm picking up from where he left some. I need to do this any to do that. During kevin's time in the department houston fire has hovered between fifteen and seventeen percent black in a city with a similar black population to new york city about twenty five percent so houston is still lagging representation. But it's not nearly as drastic as in new york. Where after nine. Eleven paul washington kept working to carry on the legacy of his father and brothers at the boca society for most of the fire departments history. We will maybe three percent of the new york city fire department and this is a history that stretches back over one hundred fifty years getting more black firefighters into the department had always been a priority of the vulcans. Mike their work recruiting keith and kevin but the numbers were not going up. Captain washington saw several trapdoors that the fda wi with putting in front of black applicants. One of them was the medical exam. You've passed the test. You come down and take a medical exam. They listen to you hot. They check you long. They take blood tests and all of that whites were failing that test. At about twelve percent blacks would fail that test at thirty two percent. Thirty two percent blacks coming through for the medical exam would be denied the job because of some sort of medical problem. That's ridiculous and that problem had been going on for one. Hundred years was an easy way to kind of just like cut. Somebody's applicant saying. Hey they fail the medical. That's right now. What you feel medical. You're out you can't you can't come on a job. And that was brought through. Fire departments attention to fire department. Didn't do anything about it. They just blow us off. Basically this was the same medical exam. That almost kept keith. Main art off the job. The voca society also took issue with the written exam. Well we said all along was the written test doesn't say if you're going to be a good firefighter or bad firefighter. If you get a ninety nine on that written test or you get a ninety five when the god denied the nine is not the same. He's going to be better at putting out a fight in the guy with the ninety five. Everybody agrees to that. But still if you got if you've got a ninety five hundred tests you're not getting a job you know. Blacks tend to not as good on a test for various reasons. But none of those reasons had to do with how good firefighter. You'll going to be remember. This entrance exam also loom large keith. And his brother kevin even though they both scored well that one point difference between ninety eight and ninety seven with the difference between keith. Getting the job and kevin having to wait and see. So why are we using test. Why use that. Let's come up with a test that's going to be a better indicator of how good firefighter you're going to be and we'll do just fine when you look back. Anything about the fire department in the city. Fighting you guys. Did they say like you know what we have a problem and we need to get better. Or they said oh. There's no problem here. we'll just handle it ourselves. What was the stance of the city and the fire department. I mean we brought these issues today. Attention and they just would either. Just blow us off. Basically you know sometimes. They admitted that he in fact the test did ban. No correlation to how. Good a firefighter. You were gonna be sometime. They did admit that there are other reasons why you know the year they should recruit more but they never did they never did you know we had to force them. To do. Legal action became a necessary part of the book of society strategy for inclusion in nineteen ninety. Nine we really started legal action against the fire department. You know i've filed an eeoc grievance with the federal government which turned into the justice department investigation fire department. The justice department found mary in the book of society. Grievances in two thousand seven. The doj sued the new york city fire department for discrimination. The voca society. Join that lawsuit and won. We won the lawsuit based on the written test. The entrance exam. We knew we were going to win. It was has now. We were going to win. And why does city battles us and wanted to bring. The court was beyond me. You know mayor bloomberg at the time he says. Oh no no judge is going to tell me what to do. You're going to lose his lawsuit in the judge is going to tell you exactly what to do in two thousand nine. Federal judge nicholas g. Guerrillas ruled against the f. d. n. y. Claiming the entrance exams were discriminatory. He found that approximately one thousand black and hispanic applicants would have been considered for appointment. If the city had used a fair test. He wrote when an employment test is not adequately related to the job for which tests and when the test adversely affects minority groups. We may not fall back on the notion. that better test takers. Make better employees. The following year. That same judge found that not only did the city discriminate but they had done so intentionally. That ruling was later overturned on appeal but for the f. d. n. y. The damage.

"Is in many john mckenzie. Who's out on. The streets of new york has spoken to new york city fire department officials and they report many missing firemen. Perhaps as many as two hundred. What did it feel like when you realize that your brother was in there i was known in. I couldn't believe it. You know in hope. He's not caught opinions so i immediately called his phone. And i got his voicemail. Remember watching it and then he got to a point where i can watch it anymore and then i got emotional. And you know it's gonna put kids. I remember watching a show on Pbs between enters about these twin. There were working on a power lines and guys remember when his twin brother got electrocuted. Because he thought it. So i didn't feel anything so okay i guess he's alive so as holding onto that hope is there was no sense. I didn't feel because i've not going to give you know when something happened. I always who sent him. Something was wrong with them. You know so Again the fight. Hey something's going on. I wish so at this point at in feed anything i. I was numb to it in tampa cd. I try to call new york. You can call. New york is on lines down. And i think at ten o'clock houston time i was able to quote the firehouse and called an ice. Speak to him. Hey we Do the head count so called back in a couple of minutes. And i'm saying space is more like is easy bats. I call by ten minutes but like teno quarterback and he said conan unlimited speed to the cats in the cabin. God he asked me. Why wasn't i was in texas. He said well. I think you might wanna come to new york. Keith was in the north tower of the world trade center and he along with six other members of engine. Thirty three killed in the collapse. Like other firefighters in new york on nine eleven captain washington remembers it will. He was off that day but got an emergency order. Report the firehouse with every other firefighter in new york city. It took city buses down to the site of the world trade center and by the time they got there the towers had fallen and then once we got there we we went to work. A building was on fire to whole building was gulf in flames. And after we put that fire out which took hours. We then went and searched. You know we started searching through the rubble and want to get that fi- route so that we could start searching as soon as possible. Because i just knew that they were going to be a lot of victims on the surface or right below the surface right. After bills fall is the best time to find victims and We started searching and we didn't find anybody you know we look at you know. Of course they were. Hundreds of firefighters are looking through debris we found by how many of the firefighters that were lost. How many of you know. oh. I don't doesn't i probably knew forty or fifty including the twelve black black. When did you first begin to talk their family. The minoan with devastating time. Obviously but when you start reaching out to them swimming after it was in a couple of days you know once it became clear or black. Friday is that were missing began calling era. The families and one of the instances was was my worst nightmare. Come true it was a firefighter. Named sean powell who. I had helped to get onto the job. We got him onto the job and he subsequently practice and i was always one of my biggest fears. I pushed so hard to get blacks on what happens if one day one of them that i helped get on ends up dying and ask what happened now. If you're old enough you probably remember that time after nine. Eleven was like around the clock coverage of firefighters searching for the remains of victims including their fallen brothers. Firefighters navy city were passing around the boots. A click money for rescue efforts and the phone. Firefighters were america's heroes but there was something troubling that kept in washington. Start to notice. One thing we saw. Was that not enough attention. Being paid to black firefighters who died in the line of duty on that day shortly after nine. Eleven saturday night live the first show after nine. Eleven at mayor guiliani appeared on stage to open the show surrounded by about twenty or twenty-five emergency service workers first responders since september eleven. Many people have called new york city of heroes. Well these are the heroes brave men and women of the new york fire department. The new york police department the port authority police department. Fire commissioner. tom. Von essen all number white. Except for maybe one person you know and that set the tone that we're not going to really look at this through the lens of black friday through the lens of black people who might who that and since then we've pushed on to get out of the twelve black firefighters who died when you think back to that. Snl show when you see giuliani. Their two dozen mostly white firefighters in from one of the most diversities the planet. What message did send that. They didn't even have one or two black officers any representation. It just didn't matter i. Black lives don't matter you know. and that's clearly. What what the message was that. Got put out there and you know. I don't know if it was if they didn't think of it or whether it was willful or not. But they didn't care. Kevin maynard and some of the other relatives of the twelve black firefighters who were killed started to feel overlooked too. There's still people that didn't know that it will mcnair get killed in the fight upon. They never saw it. I think it's because there was never image of them to the whole deal in nine eleven. There was no is a picture of him is a one or two stories. But didn't it was just forgotten and there'd be memorial gatherings has family wouldn't hear about. He didn't think it was willful necessarily but it was noticeable. So that's the issue that we had is that the closing google. So if you're irish utan there's a legacy where you had a dad in cousin include on so with these guys is.

"William that was a five hundred for thirty two years so he arranged for us to go to the and society to Take the practice test. And also the practice physical. This is fifty year old kevin maynard and that you here is from the caribbean island of montserrat. Where it was born. Kevin moved to new york teenager and he remembers going to the bulk of society in the early ninety s. That's poor washington. Paul paul to my dad we need is many. I got me so Amid port a young guidance he was a lieutenant in he. He's listening now like he was a young then at volkan hall in brooklyn. A young washington welcomed even younger kevin and his twin brother keith to potential recruits him and his brother kevin were twins and they were both trying to come through the job so we we worked out with them train them and so on and chief got into the new york city fire department kevin did not keep came on and he joined voca society and keith was. He's a great guy. Say what did he say. He was a no limit. No limit soldier keeps you say he's a great guy my back guy. He he was a good brother king. Growing up hint. Kevin were tight very close as we share a bond as identical twins dressed like so we will always together. We share a lot of thoughts incumbent he started centers and i can finish it when they got older and moved to new york. They were even closer. We went to the same high school. I got a job. Continental airlines and i went. Got him employs. We will to get it for a couple of it's almost ten years So we will share the same coffee. Did everything together to say we when we should driver's license got my driving lesson before him so i give him my driver's license to drive. We see it benefits together flying. You know that's amazing you could. You could tell the difference. Yeah like captain washington. Kevin and keith had a dad who was an f. d. n. y. Firefighter but it wasn't something they were drawn to. Especially growing up in east flatbush in central brooklyn going up there. You don't see. I think my dad was only five. The i know in that neighborhood. Oh in any neighborhood have been into 'cause there wasn't much of a look at. They never saw black firefighters on the fire trucks. It's not a place. Oh i thought. I wanted to be at until. We kind of nudge. That direction that nudge came from the boca society. My dad said it up. So we attended the sessions and so we win in mid quite a few guys in you know they. She is some of these stories. So you kinda get a sense applied being. And i think that's what i got when i was there You know you felt that the pride and you wanted to come top of the list. You want to put the effort where you you may comparatively you want to be part of that small organization. Vote when actually went through the program that we put into. Yeah and so you take the physical and the tests you feel pretty prepared for it. How did y'all end up scoring what i'm under. The written test keeps quota ninety eight escort ninety seven. We both scored one hundred hundred physical at the time to make the initial hiring list. You had to score a ninety. Five percent so kevin and keith had both made the cut but these written tests are only administered every four to five years so the wait to get into an academy and start the rest of the hiring process was notoriously long and the higher you score the higher priority on the list in new york at one point different is just not as a bunch of people is not just because they must be they take the test so you have that difference. Between one point one point could be Five hundred people or could be two hundred people in so he took actually almost five years for it to get a call back from him so he got a call before i did and He get on get on a job in ninety nine. I think while they were waiting to hear back from the f. d. n. y. Kevin got them both jobs at continental airlines for kevin. It was a good union job that he was happy to have so when keith eventually got that call from. Espn why the brothers for the first time in their lives headed in different directions at kind of drift away from the department but then he gets the job so he was there with someone you know is a problem for us so it wasn't feeling like you. You like your best friend was moving into a different college. Felt like nah. That's that's what's up like. Yeah congratulations it was a family man. You know i would sit down and help and study. My mom would make breakfast building more. Makes you have to go to to the category in my dad took him to. The kademi showed up five in the morning the morning. You know what the whole neighborhood in brooklyn was on it. You know that there was a menu. Nego steady you can't be hanging out so it's like a like a beer like you need to do make more. Yes is a group effort. Who is the effort and the people in the neighborhood. That's amazing so it gets the job everybody so proud of him but were there hurdles like did he. Did he have some tough time. Yeah it was an issue with his driver's license. The city had tickets which he didn't have so we had to get a clearer and get a letter from a jersey and they didn't have tickets in it was issue with his medical with dr city at heart murmur. Then if it wasn't for my dad who's in the fire department civilize. You could appeal this then. No you kicked. I think pilot applicants especially african americans. That day they'll get kicked off the list because of some kind of medical issue but it didn't know they could appeal it finally in one thousand nine hundred nine after years of waiting training and hoping keith graduated from the fire academy and joined the fbi why he was first stationed with engine company. Two twenty in brooklyn then moved engine thirty three in manhattan and he joined voca society. Right away he became the youngest member of the executive board and was outspoken. About the lack of black people on the job like paul washington. He wanted to be part of changing the department. Kevin headed off to texas and he remembers. How keith paul bonded over wanting to change the new york fire department import became great friends because they were very passionate about what they were doing. In the last time i saw him he dropped me at the airport in was commuting back and forth to texas and he took me to the airport because he was going to defy academy to recruitment because of the class get to graduate so we joked to to the guardia and end missed my flight and so he hung out with me for and an hour to tom. Ford going to the cabinet. We hang out in time for me to catch my flight in the he drove off that academy and as the last time i saw that was september. Sixth two thousand one four days before nine eleven all of us remember where we were that day and i wonder what memories you have of that day from the very beginning. I'm before even everything happened. What are your memories of that day. I think that they accommodate until a finite that something happened at which is going to new york. There's always happy going up the hudson river so i thought it would just buy one of these. Small planes hit the tower. Nobody was working at my mom calls and says hey you buzz at work. I turned on the tv. And peter. jennings. I remember i remember. Peter jennings is At the anchor desk uptown here in new york and is now in position.

"So capital washington Described where we are right now and also what we're looking at. We're in front of alcohol. Which is a black firefighters headquarters and brooklyn. crown heights. Kept paul washington. The former president of the vocal society. A brother and sisterhood of black firefighters in new york city and we're looking at a statute that was dedicated to the twelve. Black firefighters who died in nine eleven kept in. Washington is at thirty three year veteran of the f. d. n. y. The fire department of new york city and like a lot of america this week. He's going to be commemorating. The twenty year anniversary of nine eleven factual statute consists of A black firefighter and his full firefighting gear holding his how to his chest looking up towards heaven and he's standing on top of world trade center. He's got one foot on each hour and you can see the tile in the process of collapse. The front of statue has a plaque with those twelve. firefighters names. Five marshall andre fletcher. Firefighter coleman fight vernon chevy five william henry five five. Ronny hansen firefighter call. Joseph firefighter keith. Roy firefighters sean. Powell captain vernon richard firefighter. Leon smith georgia firefighters raw baptiste's and five five classical with these artists names. You these brothers. Do all twelve five marshall andre fletcher. He worked in rescued five and his brother. Zach is is still currently a new york city firefighters. Nice guy. andre terrel coleman. I used to play on the football team. And i stopped playing terrible. He joined football team but he took over my position and ever since then they'd never asked me anymore to vernon cherry. He was in a lot of one eighteen in brooklyn down by the brooklyn bridge. It was excellent singer. He used to sing the national anthem at different events. Someone really nice guy. William handled the three hundred and forty. Three firefighters who tragically died on nine eleven twelve were black and the fact that kept in washington new. All twelve certainly speaks to dedication to helping black firefighters in the city but it also speaks to how few of them and in one of the most diversities on the planet. We're a part of the department in the first place and the harsh reality of why that is but being a black. Firefighter is difficult a lot of times. You know we're in a predominantly white profession. And sometimes it could be hard certainly a great job but you don't want black on his job it's just like being black. In america. it's difficult kept in. Washington knows his history. His father was one of the first black firefighters on staten island. And as we sit at the bar inside of volkan hall he tells me that for eighty one years the society has been a voice for black firefighters we were founded in one thousand nine hundred forty one of the first things that we address was a practice. They had called black beds at night fighters go to a bump between runs. They laid out and they had one particular bump that was assigned to the black firefighter. No one else could sleep in bunk. Audio the bunks. The linen was changed every day. So you sleep wherever you want. But if you're black you were relegated to this one and of course it was near a broken window or bathroom or what have you. These are the kind of things at the vulcan society faced and was able to change. And over the years we've We've reface a lot of battles and biggest battle has always been getting more blacks into job from much of captain washington's career starting in the late eighties and including the time around nine eleven. The number of black firefighters has hovered between two and four percent even though the city was and is a quarter black. It's a number that is always bothered the vocals aside. Nothing comes easy. You know not comes easy. You gotta fight for it you know you gotta fight to be treated fairly you gotta fight for them to change their policies that kept blacks off his job for so long and the only gains that we've made in this job have been through five. That's the only way on numbers have increased at all because we fought before hard to get it to change the vocal society has worked hard to remember the black firefighters for lost on that day. Twenty years ago for captain washington. That recognition is part of a longer fight to make sure all black firefighters get their proper place of respect in the firehouse. None of that changes without us. Making a change you know. I mean the racism that.

Lack player sergei federov larionov the only the guy like vladimir concertina who is Who is a physical guy. But he's a defenseman so there wasn't really that russian tough guy that so you always knew and and that's the greatest. Scotty bowman being coached by the greatest and saint. Louis you know. That's where he got his start. Yeah arden kicked off. The one thing is is that is the greatest of it all is that we were the united nations way back in the day and we. We knew that to win. We needed all of us and it was like you know all the ingredients so and we also knew that we were targeted so those parked it so that was our job to protect them in the More protected that the russians were and the swedes. Were and everything else. The better chance we had to win cups and the proof is i got four of them in. How much does that for those guys. When you're like. I'm gonna protect you out there. I made takes a shot at you on. I'm taking their head off out there that to me. Feels like it would make you even closer. Just note that guy knowing that you're out there to help sort of protect him dabs louis and improves the relationship. And you don't talk about it. You'd be about it i. It's quite with martin. Who is captain washington. And i for year. Slava kozlov with one orlando's in front of the bench. And i ended up taking severed tendons in my in my fingers took both his teeth out with the quad that beat up scott walker and hoover because he took a running slava fatih saw so you know like not on our watch because that's what made us team top. We weren't the top team you got you add due to the heavy on your squad tony tony toys and student. Kinda get hit by tony. Tony twists enjoy. Kosher guys end your career so like at the game has changed so to your question. Our randy about yes. The we've seen the evolution of the game the evolution game. We watched growing up evolution. The game that i played evolution in the game that it is now so looking back in hindsight that was the start of making the whole team. Right to proven. That you needed every different caliber. You needed a blend of everything to make it work. And i think that we set the precedence of that in the early nineties. And that was you look at the wise because we have the greatest coach yet so the knew how to do and scotty bowman. So that's why work. Because you had the the gary cats were of the bobby fisher of chasse coaching. You guys coaching ranks. Before that it it was more like just get me. Some great scores like those edmund teams in the eighties. It's like give me a good goalkeeper. Gimmie three or four guys. Who can just put it in the net and will win. Yeah while the back in the day you look at grant fuhr the greatest back in the generation care. He didn't care about the nets. Were chris. osgood our goal. He's mentality is designed to stop one more. Then we get shellfish doesn't matter about save percentage of spoke winning games and so grabbed purebeam goal. That didn't care if they won or lost it like he'd be more mad they they lost one nothing then they one eight seven. So that's been tally. And how the games evolved so Yeah that's the fantastic. And every league is a copycat league you know all being the biggest one but hockey is to going back to your question about the russian five so we implemented this left wing lock right. member jersey. Had the trap chefs the worst thing in all of sports. The worst fucking thing morning. I saw photo the other day. And i think it was like paul correo or salani trying to break through three jersey devils back like scott stevens. Scott fucking stevens. Who played news vote. It used to be sized now speed. You know it's it's so funny. You're on a line. That had to matt in your line in the yard squad that was out there had to match up with the other teams bad like this. How much of a team sport it is so you take the other teams best line. Okay the best skaters and whatnot and who do you match up with because in your brain. You're like okay. We'll put our best skaters out there against them. No you take your grind line. You're grinders out there and be like okay. Let's see if you can beat these. Let's see if they it's like imposed ultralights is your best and then put our best against your second. That's right well. That's the whole thing right that in one of the things. I'm most proud of to the stays. You mentioned at your say. But if i say the grind line know on the grind line so to be able to carry that twenty four years later since when my first copper whatever to me. That's the winning. That's the goal because we're talking about and then our so our mentality right kris draper kirk ball and yet joey kosher wherever it was metallica's we are gonna shut down your top line that our benefits win. But then we add the caveat that when the top guys were struggling we would outplay. The other team's top line and how demoralizing exotic four game series. Because you don't wanna the thing with the grind line. And how many times that i go under scrunch and here guy said all he's in our soul and he's an arsenal mall draper that i'm like yeah there are sold but there my are right there. My guys remind us to see him off the ice. Or even worse the demoralized had the demoralizing nature of having you guys score and the other and their best line not score i mean you scored the goal that secured it in the sixth in game six cop. I mean that's amazing like to you like. Is that your greatest moment for you as big. I'm a big Historic guy so. I believe that if if things don't happen than they don't happen to like just like the facts you're talking about. Is you know. Put it in the only spot that night just he and if you ask them i ask on the anniversary said i'm just trying to get a by murray baron skates right. I'm trying any you know. He's not trying to pick that corner but he's trying to hit us hard. Get it by the block which you see in this days. Look many blocked shots are are out so so without that and then going to the finals and losing jersey and learning learning how to lose you guys experienced and there is no bigger fan than i was hoping that saint louis finally leaves the guys. Welcome to the club right right the club. Finally you deserve it. Because i tell everybody i always joke and go up the chicago people. They're coming up to introduce themselves that me for retiring because they never won before i retired. Chicago teams winnipeg phoenix teams. The saint louis teams. They made us as good as we are. As long with the colorado's and the dow's that we played but it was that internal competition could have gone either way. But but so i say march twenty six ninety seven where i was able to advantage the head from behind the year before from chris applaud. The mu eric kick his ass and stay in the game and scored the overtime goal. So that way. I called redwing d day. It's the because at the end of that game. It was like it's gonna be right. Don't means to be all right. You guys know that feeling is your have your cottage during the st louis. Kaprun guy who. Why did it change soon. So you're d day. You're looking for that again now. I'm lucky because as redwing fan. I experienced it for the second time when divisor resentatives president general manager two years ago. So we're going to get back there. It's just when it's one but march twenty. Six ninety seven is the day will never forget. I love that you know the day. All of that doesn't leave you. I mean the idea there. Some traditions in hockey that i just think are the greatest. Other sports should carry this on like. I love that guys. Get the cup. Every guy gets the cup for one a couple of days you get for a week during that years ago. Twenty four hours reggae. What ben the cop cop is real right. The cop cop is is the guy that works either. Fell or mike. You're up works for the league that travels around so he'll stay house whatever. But here's what you're supposed to get it for twenty four hours but then how it works because you win it and you get to know. These guys seasons friendships. So then when they're in town and they got a charity thing and then they gotta afternoon apple who they call either mayor drapes town dollar to the cup and stop but it's all about four times about twelve days. That he could and the best part is just watch other people sharing the joy and stuff like that and and personally most the greatest part is is at the end of all the shenanigans. And you're sitting in the shower by yourself with the cup washing it off. Layers layers of booze now. And you're going through the imperfections gone through the acts and god. Oh my god this is like the real thing and this. It's an historic on my fate. The all the other guys and you know it's just incredible. So yes i think of. Who had it think of who had this in just like you can see that the names of all the people you like gretzky had this cup trod this cup. I mean like every you know. Vanessa had this cup many times. Yeah and so did he. Did kris draper have his kid like potty trained his kid in the cup. Well i don't think he potty trained it on purpose in the cup but the rumor is allegedly that there might have been some sparkle matter in the cup from zo. Here's here's our thing about that. And i really. I can't believe the legend. But i think that sets a dangerous precedent now we have kids and we potty trained our kids what happens if that's the only place your kid can go. You just told me you'll get twelve twelve days if that's the only place it goes. You gotta become friends with like venus williams and be like the kids got shit bring over the wimbledon play for the thing and and we all get these little replica ones. But the bowl isn't big enough. So i mean he's going to have to figure it out some somehow if that's where he trained at i know that seven and a half beers bobble at the top. You can't get the sentence he'd and a half years skin so again so so the cats win at the year before the blues win and the cavs long-suffering needed it wanted to win and ovechkin as the guy who just he's one of those he to me. He's like clayton kershaw in and root for. He's a good dude. And all the batch is is people trying to bring them. I love the guy. And i'm like this did this dude. He's such a good player. He deserves a cup. He deserves a ring. He deserves to walk off. He'll go into the hockey hall of fame as a champion. You know there are a lot of guys who y- the dan marino's of this world who are great players who never won a stanley cup. They're they're plenty of those guys. This guy deserved it and are we had a really close friend have a really close vendors. A caps fan and like us he. He was the first one 'cause when the blues one the next year. Because he's like i know exactly what you're going through. Exactly how exciting all be. It's like we. Yesterday was the nineteen year anniversary to us hall of fame. And i feel the same way because it was about getting luc robitaille the the most scoring left winger in history. His cop because you know like and one of my best friends day do you know was one of the greatest players. Yeah at some one thing out of the everything. You know his storied career but he misses his that championship. And that's why there's certain guys that you like seeing them you know you're captain of the blues reina. Riley's another guy. Yeah that you root for and stuff like that and you look at what backus david bath. You guys did for him when he came back and the appreciation because saint louis you know. Even though i played in a trade i would love to play sampras. 'cause i mid western think it's why we have that respect for you. Know the guys that did it that you cut a would have done at the same on your team. So so okay. So this is a perfect transition into the current like final four playoff teams that are in the stanley cup playoffs right now. So an agenda. I feel this way. So we talk about the long-suffering our parents went to blues games in the seventies. Those great teams with garry. Unger and brian sutter bernie dirk. Oh and michael. You'd i mean these are great teams great teams. That like did not win. I mean you're the first couple of years in the blues went to the stanley cup when they were an expansion team and they wound up going. The stanley cup loss lost that horrible.

"Got signed or replaced. No, you're not close, and we haven't even talked about the quarterback and your defense. No. Everyone's gonna blame Chuck Pagano and Danny made a comment Our meeting this morning that he'll be any tweeted it yesterday he'll be the sacrificial lamb. They'll fire him. How about putting it at the feet of the freaking players who don't make plays? You're paying any Jackson how many millions he drops his sure interception. How about Kendall Ville? Dore turns right in his hands dropped an interception. Roque Wan dropped an interception. And how about the one on one battles that you're paying? Khalil Mack to win Akeem Hicks to win Don't see him one on one on one battles. It's not a good defense, and we rarely say that that's exactly where we're looking at what this Bears team. I'm I'm not only concerned about this year. My concern about next year is well, if you're not getting home to the quarterback if you're not getting at least hurries on the quarterback, that's a major issue. I don't mean like bad teams like Jacksonville. For our kind of underachieving teams like Minister. I mean the good teams. How do you know how good you are in the NFC? It's because your defense is good enough to be able to hang in there and I don't see that with this very TLC it next year, either. That's a major problem. Major 31233237762 Justin in Zion. He's next. Hey, Justin, with some sparkles. Hey, Good morning, guys. Jonathan stole my thunder a little bit earlier, But I'm not even a peewee coach, and I know our slow linebackers shouldn't be one on one covering these fast. I'd receivers Especially with Aaron Rodgers throwing to him and that happened all game long. What an indictment on the defensive game plan was horrible. I'll hang up and listen. OK and again. I'm not defending Chuck Pagano. I don't know the guy. I've never met the guy. I've never talked to the guy. It's very easy to go. The defensive coordinator had a bad game plan Well, Eddie Jackson may have read that play wrong because he was supposed to be safety help over the top. Instead, he's coming up in the box. So I have to know. Why did you drop three interceptions? Why are you not winning at the point of attack with Akeem Hicks, who I'm paying a fortune to Khalil Mack on paying a king's ransom to Robert Quinn, who I'm paying $70 Million like your two outside linebackers in your 34 scheme. Made $210 million combined in their two contracts, even besides the game against Green Bay yesterday, cap it's been a problem. As far as the Bears stopping the run, agreed. We could say Eddie Goldman until we're blue in the face. Said that although he's not Reggie White, Yeah, that's the whole point. Like all that you have so much money tied into defense, and somebody should be able stop the run. And that was been a problem a lot this year. So you invite besides the Packer game? Inability of Babel stop the run, and then those shots. You know, you take those quick plays on the backside, the linebackers in front of secondary. That's open a lot for a lot of teams. If you if you if you are doing play action, and you can find those open holes, you find that a lot of the spears defense and also they're just op opportunistic. They don't punch the ball out. You don't see the turnover that you want saw. I understand. It's not the lovey Smith defense. It's not even the defense from a few years ago, a man you gotta be able to make some plays where those splash plays defensively that we were accustomed to. We're not seeing that with this Bears team for two straight years, 3123323776 Let's go to Matt in River north. Hey, Matt. Morning, fellas. Hello, man. They made the playoffs. That's great if they go down and play a competitive game, I think that's a good sign. If they go down to get waxed, so wasted, I'm they honestly, they've only beaten one team with a winning record. And they were very fortunate to do that. Right camp out a million penalties a lot of guys out. So you know how much stock you really put in it. You know, my take on it is Why don't they throw the ball downfield more? I'm sick and tired of seeing these screens and all this stuff, you know? Do they not trust Mitch to do that? You know? The Egyptians. Like it was like watching a Redskin game last night with Alex Smith. They didn't throw the ball more than Daniel cards. Very lucky to win. They were very lucky in a way. Yeah. Look out and appreciate the call Matt. Thanks for always listening. Happy New Year to you. Football team, The Washington football team. Pal. Michael said that three times he gave me You just can't get out of your system. Right? You got the same colors on it Looks like the Redskins. Just it takes some time for some of us to understand. It's a football team. I actually would keep Washington FC. I think that'd be a cool name for the team. Sure I don't need the sentinels or whatever they're gonna end. Oh, you mean ft. Are you a cheap because that ball club? Yes. No, no, That's a soccer thing so direct. They're currently wftv. Okay, Keep that That's okay. Washington football team. I think it's cool. Yeah, I don't need the capitals of the sentinels. Don't need some other hokey name. It doesn't offend anyone.

Yeah, There's a great article they talked about Ron Rivera hired. I think his daughter to work in the organization. And he's hired a bunch of new executives and the blank show that he's trying to clean up there. Oh, by God, the stuff that was going on with photo shoots with cheerleaders. I mean, it's On the believable come to find out the revere. Actually, the GM too. Yeah, you actually is more than just a head coach is he who gets rid of a top draft pick that late into the season like they did with their quarterback caskets, right? He's like, OK, I've had enough of you. It's cap coaching. You're out. What do you do? What I said, Why is Captain Washington? You know what Your JAG. Get out of here. Gone, you're gone. You know what We'll just bring in two other guys. The athletic did a deep dive on why they got rid of him. Wasn't watching film wasn't prepared in their light can't get a lot of second hand. You're supposed to be the leader of our football. You're out. See you later And then in that article, they said that when they went to the draft, they none of the scouts that used to be their wanted him. None of them and Dan Snyder overruled.

At the same time Knox's continental artillery continued to fire down King and Queen Streets Knox's artillery had improved with months of combat experience. Captain Alexander Hamilton. Who you may recall had given really embarrassing performance in his attempt to fire his cannon on the British ships sailing up the Hudson River a few months earlier now expertly used his guns against is the enemy? When a gun carriage broke on one of Knox's guns he ordered nearby infantry to charge enemy gun with swords and bayonets the Hessian artillery had advanced to four without sufficient infantry support the continentals charged into enemy fire to capture those two cannons? They then turn the guns around and continued firing on the enemy. The Americans who took part in that charge received several serious wounds both captain Washington and Lieutenant Monroe suffered serious wounds as a result of the charge. Monroe particularly suffered a severed artery in the shoulder. Her he very likely would fled to death on the field. But for the services of Dr Reicher. Who else mentioned had join them? Overnight Dr Rikers quick action. Stop the bleeding and save the future president from an untimely death. The continentals fought with an aggressiveness and speed. Did that surprise. The enemy perhaps one benefit of the many men who deserted the continental army in the weeks prior to battle was that those who did remained and where the hard core and most committed the Americans fought with a fury rushing the enemy at every opportunity. The heavens took dozens thousands of casualties while inflicting very few on the attackers. The hashes fell back again into town as multiple continental brigades. Press them on on several fronts. Colonel Raw finally considered retreating over the bridge to the south. But by this time it really was too late the continentals had secured secured the bridge backed up with cannon. As role ordered his men to fall back he took two shots in his side and had to be carried off the field. He would live until evening when he finally expired. After the battle had ended with the loss of Rawal and several other officers the two regiments passions. WHO had at advanced into the orchard and then began to fall back had decided they had enough rose second command? I tried to find a place to force I through the lines and get to the Princeton road but after he realized this was not gonNa work. You ordered his men to lay down their arms and surrender. Many of the Hessian soldiers disgusted with the idea of surrendering to these rebels. Smashed their muskets on the ground and slashed their equipment this denied its use by the enemy and avoided the indignity of turning over the weapons to the enemy. A few soldiers fled back into town and hidden. Various buildings to be captured later other was a third regiment of Russians the Knipe Housing Regiment. That was still in town after their comrades surrendered these. These remaining men attempted to retreat south across the stone bridge. But as I said by this time Sullivan's division had already taken control of the bridge edge and cut it off as an avenue of retreat. These remaining Haitians then tried to move up the creek to look for a spot where they could Ford across it. However the Americans kept up with them on the other side of the creek continuing their fire more Americans came through town surrounding this last Hessian Regiment? The Acting Commander of this regiment major deck out suffered a mortal wound and suggested that the regiment surrender. Some of his other officers objected and Deco told him they could do whatever they wanted and he left the regiment and walk back to town to surrender. After a a few more minutes of trying to find a place to cross the creek the final regiment which found itself surrounded finally lay down their arms and surrendered to the Americans reckons. The fighting lasted somewhere between forty five and ninety minutes accounts on this differ. But the American victory was pretty complete they had killed or captured. Most of the combat troops in Trenton. Only twenty two died in the actual battle with another eighty three wounded ended but about nine hundred were captured. They also captured six Hessian field cannon ammunition and a wealth of supplies next week a victorious. General Washington has to decide what he wants to do. Next hi thanks for joining the American Waken Revolution. PODCAST after show today. I WanNa thank Mike Hager for stepping up and joining the Robert Morris Circle on patron Mike because actually been a big supporter of the show for many months now at the Privy Council level but recently joined the Robert Morris Circle the highest level of patriotic on support for this podcast. Thanks Mike I really appreciate you helping to make this show possible. I'm recording this episode of few weeks ahead of time. Time the date this episode releases November Sixteenth Twenty Nineteen. I will be down at History Camp Virginia for a presentation Shen on the politics of independence. The other thing that will have happened by then is the announcement of History Camp Philadelphia. We are finally highly getting history Camp Philadelphia on May second twenty twenty the constitution highschool in Old Town philly which is a school that focuses on history. History has agreed to give us the space to hold history camp over the weekend. This will be a great opportunity for anyone in the area either to give a presentation and we're just listened to many of those that will be given. The great thing about history. Camp is that it is open to anyone. Many of us have spent much of our adult lives reading and learning about all different aspects of history. History camp gives us a chance to share that knowledge with other enthusiasts history camp covers all aspects of history not just the revolution. I know there will be some really great revolution topics. They're just based on some of the authors authors who have already expressed an interest in attending however I actually plan to present on an interesting topic. That's not from the revolution. My topic will be the Philadelphia Bible. Riots of eighteen forty four should be a really awesome day. One shortcoming of our location though is is that space is going to be rather limited. So if you do WANNA go be sure to order your tickets early. I've started a facebook page for history Camp Philadelphia and there should be more information appearing on the history camp dot org webpage later this week but again mark your calendars for May second twenty twenty. So this week we covered the first battle of Trenton which begins fighting in what is sometimes called the ten most crucial crucial days of the American revolution. Those are the days from December. Twenty fifth seventeen seventy six. When Washington I crosses the Delaware River through January third when the continentals fight the battle of Princeton out last week we covered the crossing the Delaware on the twenty fifth? Today Day we cover the Battle of Princeton on the twenty sixth. But don't worry it's not come take us ten episodes to get through all ten of those days. The next eight days will will be covered in a mere three episodes but the reason those ten days are really considered so crucial and why I am devoting so much time to it on. The podcast fast is because the continental army and the Patriot movement. More generally was on the verge of dying when those days began on December twenty fifth and by January third it had a new lease on life at a real chance of going the distance. That is why we give so close attention to those ten in crucial days for those of you who want an even closer look. I'm recommending a book with that same name. Ten crucial days Washington's ends vision for victory unfolds by William L.. Kidder as you might guess from the title the book goes into great detail specifically about that time period beginning on December twenty fifth and ending on January third. The book is very thorough covering that short time period with over three hundred pages of content not counting notes and index. It's not as much a narrative a book like the one. I recommended last week on a similar topic David Hackett officiers Washington's crossing this book ten crucial days reads a little bit more. Like a timeline going into detail about exactly what is happening. Hitting each day in various theatres the book itself is relatively new having just been released last year twenty eighteen. For that reason. It's actually able to take advantage of some of the additional research and information that has come out about the battles since two thousand four when the book. I recommended last week fishers. Washington's crossing was published the author William Kidder for Larry to his friends has written a number of books books on New Jersey history. He's retired history teacher and has been a longtime volunteer at the Howell. Living History farm which is near Washington's it's crossing. I also had the privilege of listening to a lecture of his at my local American revolution. Roundtable a few months ago my online recommendation. This week is a website of the same name. Ten crucial days dot Org. The site is run by Roger Williams who is a Patriot supporter of this show at the Privy Council level. His site covers the same critical period as Mr Kidder's book from Washington's Crossing on the twenty fifth to the battle of Princeton on the third. The site has lots of great information about those events and is tied to the many parks and museums in the area. If you you ever plan to visit Washington's crossing you really should visit ten crucial days dot Org as part of planning your visit. Well that's offer this week. I hope you will join me again next week. For another American Revolution podcast..

"He was fluent in French German. But and translate he even he brought a French shift Develey, the guy quit after forty eight houses did not know this not for me. But. What really intrigued me about von Steuben was he also arrived at Valley Forge with a resume. That was doctored up than the mayo clinic. Now, I'll step back to explain that on Steuben had risen to the rank of captain in Frederick, the greats Prussian army now, of course, Frederick the great at the time was the most renowned military commander in the western world and his Prussian army, although small was the most feared they used to say that Frederick the great at an army with the country as opposed to a country with an army on Steuben had learned under Frederick, the great something that no other western officer had not in France, not Poland Britain, Italy, certainly not the continental army United States, and that was Frederick the great made his officers live eat and breathe with the enlisted get down in the muck and mire with them. All the other armies thought the officers that were. This was below offer station we leave that to the sergeants corporals NCO on stupid knew how to drill army. So when he kinda shows up in France in the counter version once again, Amanda Frenchman in the middle of a lot of this introduces them to Franklin, and Silas Deane now, of course, their initial reaction is a crush now. Now, no, we're already getting screaming letters from Washington. Not to send any more of these mercenaries he soldiers fortune over to the United States. But it only took a few interviews with on Stoobant ale. Chatted in French for them to realize Franklin, especially this is just the man that washing the needs to turn his disparate conglomeration of militias into a well oiled fighting machine. He knows what he's doing knows how to train knows how to drill, but he dean of Jan got together. And he's said, what are we gonna do? Those only captain Washington's rejecting the generals were sunny over. So suddenly. On students captain's bars recklessly disappeared from shoulder and replaced by general stars. And he became inspector general of Frederick degrades, crush Rb. Which of course, he never was. And he became a principal aide to camp to Frederick the great for over decade, of course, which he never did. But this is the way that they figure they can get him into the states later on when it gets exposed will figure it out. But for now, let's get him over and sure enough he shows up within his first week at valley. Forge the enlisted men junior officers, and even the American generals who are very suspicious of foreigners. He's ingratiated himself to every one of them is first week. He's writing memos to Washington, you cannot have your latrines run willy nilly through the bread baking of territory, you gotta put him on the other side of the hell you let's grade the roads in front of the huts through two thousand hunts. They built a Valley Forge let's grade those roads and give them Reggie. Mental names to give the soldiers sense of professionalism within days Washington had told all his other officers. Do not train your men the training is gonna come from this Prussian Washington gave on stupid his personal guard fifty men chosen other fifty men from the states that were Representative alley Ford and said to student trainings one hundred men and then spread them out throughout the army as your sub traitors. So everyday von Steuben would take these one hundred men out on the debris onto the prayed ground valley. Forge and the other soldiers didn't have a lot to do. So there's thousands of lined up in a square and square watching stupid and action. And sure enough on Steuben would get down on his rather large gut in a muck in the mire teach them how to read to rain or pick up heat. He doffed his coat and throw away is riding crop pick up a musket CHOGM the proper way to put to put a bayonet in. Somebody's gut and then twisted the men took to this like never before. And this is the other one of the many reasons why I love on stupid. He was of prickly for detail use brushing expect and when someone made a mistake or did something wrong, or somehow incurred von Steuben Zeier as I said before he had no English French German will Washington had assigned Lafayette and Lawrence as his translators..

"After his crew covered the slaves deck medicine for bait. Shutting of more blood and audit, those sailors to come down, which they did God was placed everyone except merit. Who has retained to navigate the fizzle at first they wished to travel to Beria, but once realizing the ship did not have enough supplies to make the voyage. They forced merit to stand him towards the Bahamas on pain of death. All things now secure and the white men and chains or under God medicine, ordered that the shackles be removed, the enslaved men and women. The next morning, captain Washington as he was now called or the cook to provide the best breakfast at the storm could furnish intending to surprises comrades, and especially the females who had not seen yet. What medicine didn't know is that his wife? Susan the woman he had risked life and liberty. For would be there to greet him at the breakfast table. Yes. That's right. His wife. Susan was on the brick the meeting of the hero and his beautiful wife. The tears of joy. And the chairs that followed from the men can be better magin than this crowd. Fanqvist coverage and boldness Madison had not only gained his liberty. And that of one hundred fifty four hours but his dad Susan was now finally safe. So at this point the story should be over right medicine. It saved his wife one hundred five days. We're now free row credits. The end. Well, not quite. You see Americans in particular seven Americans of that time did not see black people of any kind as human. So for them. This rebellion was a bit lot being kicked out of bed by pet. Cat a pet cat who also happen to tell you that. Oh, by the way, I know you paid a lot of money for me at the catch up, but e e can't anymore, and you're welcome for me. And my buddy decided not to you. PS I'm off to go and live as a free cap with your English neighbor that you hate. He what fell to mention previously is that the British had abolished slavery in all its forms in eighteen fifty three. So when Madison and his clever crew ought to be taken to the Bahamas. It wasn't because of its fabulous beaches and beautiful women. It was because they knew that the Bahamas was Enbridge territory, and at that be covered by British law when the krill landed in Nassar, Madison and his crew were actually answer. And if they would be welcomed or arrested and Neva what ends in Gifford and his team as booting vessels approached the ship. The formerly enslaved Fru their weapons overboard and began to laugh and joke as if nothing strange happened on the ship. I can imagine the tension mounting as the first of the Bahamian soldiers came on board the Krio. Both sides trying to work out how encounter would go down. I Canossa magin. The look on the faces of incident when they saw the shining black skin of the officers as they entered the ship. The big smiles they broke out into had the laughter. And then heard the cheers as they welcomed. A I quote their brothers and sisters to the island. Seriously, in my mind, the scene looked more like a cookout than stakeout. Yea we have those in England to or as we call them barbecues. Okay. So now, we roll credits. Right. Well. Not yet. There was the small matter of the man who had been killed on board. And because of that Madison and eighteen of men were arrested on charges of murder. Because mud had been committed a formal investigation had to commence an ensign and co used his time to hatch a plot to retake the vessel from the British. The plan was to take the ship by force and snatches many slaves that they could grab a little away. The first date of the plot was to obtain weapons. The plan. Never actually got to stage two because Dade one proved to be a lot more challenging than they'd bargained for. Incident. Go had accounted for was the fact that the free blacks of the island had been former slaves summit even arrived there from ships that have been wrecked on your few years earlier. So this Caribbean island inhabited by former Jamaican Haitian and American lanes simply refuse to sell insen any weapons. In fact, they refused to sell them anything when ensign the temperature to approach the whites living on the island in a show of Sundarajan that we could do more of seeing today. They also refused to sell them anyway defeated and sin did what any red blooded American with day. And took his case. Which was Julie fro now. The British ruling that the men had and I quote, the revolutionary right to freedom. And dropped charges of murder empire Issy. And then we have it, folks. A runaway slave a love story out drama and the real pirates of the Caribbean. Hope you enjoyed it. Well, actually, hang on one last thing. Not all the slaves chose to take their freedom. Rachel Glover a young girl named Mary to of a women and one of this chose to sell back with ensign and his crew. We don't actually know why they chose to stay. But they may have returned in hopes of being reunited with children, husbands and other family members. When writing this I seriously considered leaving that out. But I think helps to highlight the terrible choices that the institution of slavery forced on black women and shows just how powerful mother's love can really be. So this particular show, I'm dedicating to my mom. She didn't have to choose between freedom and slavery, but a single mother. She didn't have very many choices to and like many other amazing black women. She protected us. Nurtured us educate us prayed for us and ensure that we wanted for nothing not time not tension. A most certainly not laugh. So if you're listening to this give mama cool or whoever you choose to call them antenna. Love. Go on do it. Now, give her a cool. All right. So finally best the end. That
