"deadbolt mystery society" Discussed on Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities

"Our world is full of the unexplainable, and if history is an open book, all of these amazing tales are right there on display. Just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities. Declaring war on the United States is no small action. It means intending to fight the most powerful military force in the world. In 1989, the U.S. invaded Panama after president Bush senior mistook the country's declaration as a serious threat. The situation lasted just over a month, but by the end the invasion had killed between 300 and a thousand panamanians and destroyed tens of thousands of homes. Looking back on the devastation, it's clear to see why so few have tried to go up against America. Well, one nation learned that lesson the hard way when it seceded and then swiftly declared war on an enemy, it was grossly underpowered to face. It was called the conch republic, and it was formed in 1982. The small island had been known as kaya hoso, a U.S. territory, and boasted a population of 24,000 people from all over the world. Germans, Cubans, and Irish travelers, among others, had settled on the island over the years, turning it into quite the melting pot. The United States had set up a military checkpoint on the island that year, inspecting cars for drugs and signs of human trafficking operations. Those on the island were not pleased by the interference to their day to today lives, nor were the tourists who flocked there to kick back and relax. The checkpoints caused massive traffic jams as long as 17 miles, people getting around the island couldn't do so easily without having their vehicles stopped and searched. As a result of the intrusion, many would be visitors chosen said to go to nearby locations not under U.S. occupation. They canceled their reservations, opting instead for vacations where they could travel without harassment. The city council tried to get the checkpoints removed by filing an injunction against the U.S. government in federal court. But the case was dismissed. There was a drug problem in the United States, and it was believed that the key to ending it live and verifying the contents of each car passing through kaiju. While the island's mayor, Dennis wardlow couldn't take it anymore. A certain word kept cropping up in meetings between the mayor and his advisers, and one day it seemed like it might be the best way forward. That word? Secession if the United States was going to treat the island like a foreign country, then it would have to behave like one, too. So on April 23rd of 1982, the time had come for Kayo hoes so to separate from the United States. It was officially renamed to the conch republic, named for the slang term used to describe the many bahamians living on the island who had come from European descent. Mayor wardlow had suddenly become the prime minister, and among his first actions as the head of a new nation, he declared war on America. However, he did it in the most unusual way by cracking a loaf of Cuban bread over the head of someone wearing a U.S. Navy uniform. It didn't take long for wardlow to realize he was in over his head, though, and surrendered one minute after declaring independence of the conch republic. He then asked the United States for a $1 billion in foreign aid. So why isn't the conch republic found not any maps? Because its original name, kyo hoso is Spanish for Key West. The island that's technically part of Florida. The secession wasn't real. It had been nothing more than a noisy publicity stunt to send a message to the U.S. government about its obtrusive checkpoints. And they listened. Shortly after the conch republic rejoined America, the checkpoints were shut down and tourism to the island boomed. But peace was never permanent. For example, in 1995, when the U.S. Army reserve sent a battalion to Key West for a training exercise, cock officials were never alerted in response, mayor wardlow ordered a schooner to pelt a coast guard vessel with stale Cuban bread, and water balloons. The active aggression was met with equal force by the U.S. coast guard who turned their fire hoses on the attacking ship, bringing the fight to an abrupt end. The city of Key West contacted the Department of Defense and complained about their lack of notice about the exercise. The Department of Defense sent an apology and accepted the conch republic's so called surrender a few days later. Today, the conch republic is still going strong that has its own navy, advertised as the largest sale propelled navy in the world, and it hosts several events in April as part of its Independence Day celebration. It just goes to show that making a big public protest about something can often get results. And sometimes all it takes is a declaration of war on the United States.

"Objects. That discovery outshines the famous Sutton hoo burial ship, which had only offered up 37 coins to archeologists. By comparison, the massive scale of the lava tube treasure surpasses it all by far. We can start to make sense of that though when we realize just how long it took the hoarders to work their stockpile. It was the work of generations. You see, once archeologists started dating the objects they unearthed from the horde. They found that the oldest was placed there nearly 7000 years ago. In other places, they might not have survived. It was the extremely dry conditions of the lava tube that preserve them. But they're not just old. The most recent items date to about the middle of the 1600s. That means that to create this underground collection in the darkness of the lava tube, it wasn't just the work of generations, but the work of millennia. Not that it's a treasure that would attract anyone though because this is slightly unusual for a horde. It wasn't gold or coins, or even an ancient ship. It was a burial mound though. That's right. The collection was a horde of bones. They were densely packed into the lava tube, stretching away into the darkness. And as the researchers started to pull them out, test their ages, catalogued them and take notes. They began to see that this bone hoard contained pieces from over 14 different species and included the bones of cows, camels, horses, rodents, and a lot more. The study got really serious though when they checked the bones from markings. Sure, they found cuts, and maybe that's what you'd expect, but they also found the marks of teeth. These bones had been chewed. Some were even partially digested. That tells us that these bones weren't just a burial mound for the dead. And here's the thing. It wasn't like these were just the bones of cows and goats. Know what the researchers found gave them a chill. Because some of the bones were human. In fact, it's human skull fragments that were found among the other nod bones. But what archeologists guess about these skulls is even more gruesome than that. If we go by their best guess, they think these skulls were scavenged from graves. After the bodies of the dead were buried, someone from the clan of hoarders came through, sniffed them out and dug them up. Then they lugged them back to the lava tunnel where they added them to a treasure trove. After they gave those skulls a good chew, of course. And one of the archeologists even suggested that these skullcaps with tooth marks are the only thing to survive because the hoarders chewed the rest to splinters. The pieces of skull, candy, only survive because they didn't taste quite as good. All of that would be truly horrifying if the family packing the lava tube with bones for 7000 years was human. But as you may have guessed by now, this family was something else. No, the builders of this massive treasure trove weren't people, but hyenas striped hyenas that is. These days, they're a threatened species, but they used to be a mainstay of the region. So breathe a sigh of relief. But to me, the fact that it's a family of hyenas passing on the work of a major treasure trove from parent to child, that makes 7000 years of stockpiling skeletons, all the more impressive.

"Medicine is science, oftentimes it can take years of research and trials for a new medication or procedure to make it to patients on a wider scale. Yet, that doesn't stop people from hunting for miracle cures. Those one in a million treatments that bypass the lengthy safety test mainstream drugs undergo before the 1906 pure food and drug act, there were almost no regulations in place to prevent doctors or snake oil salesmen from peddling whatever tinctures they thought might heal someone. And for hundreds of years, the science behind medicine was, well, questionable. King Charles the second, for example, was no stranger to medical curiosity. As a child he'd been tutored by William Harvey, a surgeon on the cutting edge of the field who had been the first person to detail how the heart pumped blood throughout the body. Charles studied many scientific subjects growing up, including chemistry and physics. But when it came to medicine, especially later in life, he rarely turned anything down. Due to his poor health in the weeks before his death, Charles underwent all manner of treatments, including cupping, bloodletting, and something called the king's drops. Kings drops were created by Jonathan Goddard, a physician and surgeon who had developed a unique formula for what he deemed a royal cure all. It could help with fainting, bladder stones, and it was said to be a powerful stimulant as well. Nevertheless, Charles wanted to know what he was putting into his body, so he paid Goddard for the formula. The king learned much about the drop's chemical composition. Among its ingredients were ivory, dried vipers, and hearthstone, an ammonia solution made from deer horns. Everything was ground up liquefied distilled and filtered through a complex process that eventually yielded an alcoholic solution. But there was one ingredient that really pulled the whole thing together. It's effectiveness, however, varied from person to person. What was it that Goddard put in his drops? Human skulls 5 pounds of them crushed into a fine powder, but not just any skulls would do. Goddard sought out the craniums of young men who had been killed violently, like soldiers or recently executed criminals. For lesser ailments, a few drops were administered at a time. For more serious conditions, though, such as a stroke or lethargy, 40 to 50 drops could be ingested at once. Unsurprisingly, this miracle cure didn't cure much of anything, and it might have made the king's health even worse. He died on February 2nd of 1685, and it was believed at first that he'd been poisoned. Today, experts are able to tell that Charles most likely suffered from kidney disease, which led to his passing, whether the drops had contributed to it, however, remains to be seen. It's likely they didn't help. Edward walpole had been a member of parliament for the town of king's Lynn in Norfolk when he took some of Goddard's drops in 1668. Walpole died after suffering a seizure shortly thereafter. But that didn't stop people from believing in the drop's power, especially since they were chock full of human skulls. Skulls had been used in medicinal treatments from the 16th century all the way through the 18th century. In fact, the German man named Oswald crawl developed a concoction in 1643 that was meant to cure epilepsy, and like Goddard, he preferred to use skulls from men who had died under violent circumstances. But corpse medicine, as it was called, extended beyond the bones inside the head. Someone with a sore muscle might have rubbed belly fat on the offending spot to alleviate the pain. People drank blood because they believed it had restorative properties, and the poor who couldn't afford expensive medicines would attend executions and pay for a cup of the red stuff. Freshly squeezed, of course. Other cultures who practice corpse medicine like the Native Americans were vilified and called all kinds of slurs due to what the Europeans saw as uncivilized cannibalism. The hypocrisy was strong back then, and some of those stereotypes have lingered to this day. But times changed, and with them, so did medicine, scientific breakthroughs led to new remedies like penicillin and vaccines for diseases such as smallpox. People stopped eating and drinking skulls to feel better. After all, any cures would have been psychosomatic anyway. You know, all in their head.

"During World War II, one division works so well as a team they didn't even have to use guns to succeed. The group wasn't formed until 1944, when 1100 men were handpicked to serve as part of a new unit. It was called the 23rd headquarters special troop, or ghost army, and it was tasked with some of the most difficult missions of the war. For example, in September of 1944, a couple of American divisions in France had been moving toward Germany for an assault. As they drove to Metz, a French city near the border, they found themselves vastly outnumbered against the German forces waiting for them. But they had a backup plan in the form of the 6th armored division who had spent the night moving 12 M4 tanks into position along the treeline. Lieutenant dick Syracuse's platoon listened to the sounds of their treads moving over the terrain for hours. The next morning, Syracuse woke up to a U.S. cavalry colonel screaming about tanks among the trees. Syracuse asked the colonel to elaborate, just as the man had been saying, there was an array of M4 tanks lined up several hundred feet away. The lieutenant pulled him aside and explained the truth of the situation. Those weren't the 6th armored division at all. Those tanks had been rolled in by the 23rd headquarters special troop. Well, rolled is a bit of an understatement. It was more likely that they had been picked up and dropped into place. Because they were made of rubber and had been inflated like balloons. You see, the 23rd headquarters special troops weren't normal soldiers. They had specific talents the other divisions lacked. For one, the group was made up of artists and creative types recruited from ad agencies and art schools. They weren't expected to fight. They were expected to put their heads together to deceive the enemy, which they did. The sounds that the platoon had heard the night before were pumped in through a speaker system that had been mounted on a military transport. The noise itself had been recorded and mixed together to form the sound effects track meant to trick the enemy into thinking the special troops were much larger than they actually were. It was a technique known as sonic deception. Throughout the latter days of the war, the ghost army developed several ways of fooling the Germans. Many of which looked like something one might have seen on an episode of the a team decades later. They generated fake radio traffic, they knew would get intercepted, providing the Nazis with fake positions for American troops. They also used their limited resources to inflate their presence as well. Along with their specially made sound effects, the ghost army would drive two to three real tanks around in a loop to make it look like they had a full convoy. They completed the deception by painting specific insignia on buildings and having some soldiers wear different uniforms to create what they called atmosphere. It was to give the illusion that there was more than one unit nearby at any given time. This was demonstrated in March of 1945, when the 23rd deployed a fleet of inflatable aircraft carriers along the Rhine river valley. Thanks to some fake radio transmissions, broadcast over open channels, the Germans were convinced that the allies were preparing to attack a particular spot in a valley at a particular time. They pulled all nearby troops and sent them to that location to prepare for battle. Instead, the allies were 6 miles away, crossing the Rhine with ease since the Nazi defense posts were now all but abandoned. Meanwhile, the 23rd had inflated over 600 rubber tanks and dressed up a bunch of mannequins in uniforms from very in units. They wanted to show that they were not a small outfit of 1100 troops, but rather two separate divisions of 30,000 allied soldiers. The sounds of rolling tanks and bombers flying overhead rang out from giant speakers as well. The Germans bought it and attacked with full force. Countless mannequins lost their lives that day, but it was believed that tens of thousands of actual allied soldiers were saved thanks to the efforts of the ghost army. They were the unsung heroes of World War II using their brains to overcome German brawn. I love it. When a plan comes together. This episode was made possible by the deadbolt mystery society.

A young girl is in the kitchen with her mother watching her bake a ham for a big dinner. The mother cuts off the ends of the ham before sliding it into the oven. Why do you cut the ends off the ham before you put it in the oven the girl asks? Because that's the way my mother always did it. The mother says, so the girl calls up her grandmother and asks the same question why did you cut off the ends of the ham before putting it in the oven and the grandmother responds with a familiar answer? That's the way my mother always did it. So finally, the girl calls up her great grandmother and asks why she used to cut the ends off the ham before she put it in the oven. The great grandmother says, because my pan was too small to fit the whole ham. Some traditions exist simply because they're traditions. Small ceremonies that have gone on so long, it seems strange to stop them now. Because we've always done it that way, doesn't fly in a fast moving corporate environment, but traditions aren't always meant to be stopped or changed. They also connect us to our past, helping us feel closer to those who have left us and to a time gone by. Perhaps that's why the City of London still feels obligated to pay the queen rent for two plots of land at first least, 800 years ago. They're known as quit rents, and they are upheld by a person called a remembrancer. Yes, that's a real word. Their whole job is literally to remember important things on behalf of the king or queen. Usually involving taxes and debts. It was a title first created by King Henry the second in 1154. They remember insert wears a judicial wig beneath a black tricorn hat. A sign that they are a judge of the exchequer court, the exchequer court dealt with payments of rent and debt settlements. In fact, the name exchequer came from the checkered cloth covering the table behind which that remembrancer sat. He would use the squares in the pattern to keep track of the payments made and the debts that were still owed. Sort of a cloth spreadsheet well ahead of its time. Of course, London has changed a lot over the last 800 years. And so the locations of the original properties have been lost. But what hasn't changed are the rents? One of the properties is known as the Moors at 180 acre plot located about two and a half hours northwest of London in shropshire. It was leased back in 1211, possibly earlier and occupied by a man named Nicholas de Moore, who paid the hefty sum of two knives for it. One sharp and one blunt. Eventually the City of London became the tenets of the land and so were then forced to pay the two knife fee to maintain the rights, although these days rather than the knives, the city pays using a curved farming knife known as a billhook, as well as a sharpened axe, which are both taken possession of by the remembrancer. To verify the payment is correct, the blades are tested against a pile of sticks. If the bill hook is unable to cut through them, it is accepted. The axe must then slice through the same number of sticks with little effort in order for it to also be approved. At which point the remembrancer says, good service, and takes them. The other property used to be home to a blacksmith's forge in the city of Westminster around 1235, the rent for this location totaled 61 nails and 6 horseshoes. For this payment, the City of London actually uses the same nails and horseshoes each year. Once the rent is paid, the remembrancer tallies of the objects says good number and the items are loaned back to London until they're due again the following year. And best of all, folks today can witness the quit rent ceremony. It's open to the public, although it isn't highly publicized. Not for any secret of reason mind you only because it's old news. After all, it's been going on for over 8 centuries. You know, because they've always done it that way. I hope you've enjoyed today's guided tour of the cabinet of curiosities.

"Our world is full of the unexplainable, and if history is an open book, all of these amazing tales are right there on display. Just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities. The invention caused outrage, people regarded the new technology as the moral downfall of society. And as you might imagine, made it a hot topic for conversation. Doctors warned the apparatus had catastrophic events for women and girls. Women you see were thought to be frail, referred to as the angel of the household. Their jobs were to keep house and race children. And nothing more. The new device was too hard on their dainty feminine skeletons, their feet would become deformed forcing them to walk in an odd non feminine plunging motion. The bones in their fingers would curl into a claw. Even their facial features weren't immune. Their mouths would contort into a grimace and the rise would bulge from their sockets. With continued use, a woman's body would become more masculine. That is if she even survived at all. Doctors told the public that a woman's reproductive system severely limited her from doing anything more manly. And this contraption might cause her finite femininity and energy to become permanently extinguished. Doctors also said the new technology would render women and young girls sterile. Entire medical journals detailed all sorts of anomalies linked to the invention. Women were likely to suffer appendicitis attacks or even ruptures, inflammation, overexertion, and dangerous internal swelling of the throat, just to name a few. It was said that the device took a toll on their looks, too. Women risked dark shadows under their eyes, pale lips, clenched jaws, and an overall look of weariness. Heart palpitations, insomnia, headaches, and even depression were known side effects plaguing women. Some doctors stated the conditions were permanent while others thought that with enough time away from the invention a full recovery could be expected. To society's horror, women using the machine also began to dress differently, wearing bloomers instead of dresses. Until now, women hadn't even shown their ankles, pastures and others warned the apparatus might loosen women's morals. Women might even be deriving dare I say it, pleasure from the invention without a man. In 1891, a Sunday Herald reporter wrote that scene a woman with a device was the most vicious thing he had ever laid eyes on, far outweighing women's smoking. Three years later, in 1894, The New York Times headline read, lunacy in England. The article stated that without a doubt, persistent use led to weakness of the mind, general lunacy and homicidal mania in women. Unable to handle the technology, women reportedly became overly exhilarated and the stress, both physical and mental, would cause them to harm others while using the contraption and leave innocent people for dead. While this invention sounds pretty awful, men were completely unaffected. In fact, they were encouraged to utilize the same apparatus. The invention was all the rage back in the 1890s and benefited men greatly, both for business and for pleasure. There were even special clubs for men who owned them, all over the country, new cultures surrounded the device. The message was clear, the invention was purely masculine and only men could handle such a contraption. But the real reason ran a bit deeper. A woman doctor, a rarity for the time, disagreed with her male counterparts. She pointed out that not one doctor could produce evidence suggesting that the side effects they described were real. No one walked around with claw shaped hands, plunging walks, or the horrendous face that had garnered a diagnosis at all. It's quite the visual. The women of the day didn't buy it either. Women everywhere used them. Susan B. Anthony even said that equal rights were closely tied to this invention. A paper in Pennsylvania pointed out that the new technology had given women the ability to go to the store. Visit a friend and exercise all without waiting for a man to take her places. And that had been the real issue all along. It allowed women a level of freedom that most men of the time found threatening. Today, it's hard to believe that one simple object caused moral panic. And the invention? The bicycle. This episode was made possible by the deadbolt mystery society. Are you a connoisseur of murder mysteries?

"Unable to sell their wares overseas. On top of all this, that tribes of the western United States were being supported by the British against American expansion. It's no wonder that in 1812, everything came to a head and led to a new war. The aptly named war of 1812. Once again America was up against the British, who now had help from the indigenous tribes, they were assisting financially, and it didn't help that there were still parts of the U.S. that were dependent on the United Kingdom for support. The newly independent America had its work cut out for it. Two years into the war while both sides were fined for claim of the west. The Royal Navy was busy taking over the eastern coastline, a 74 gun ship known as the HMS bulwark invaded the town of situate Massachusetts in June of 1814. Sailors and fishermen from the nearby town of cohasset formed a militia to fight the threat head on. They numbered fewer than a hundred, but they were ready. On June 16th, word spread of an attack on situate harbor, the bulwark had already sunk several ships with barges full of soldiers headed toward the town to bring the fight to land. By the time the British reached the harbor, though, the militias numbers had grown from 94 to almost 1200, and the British seeing that they were clearly outnumbered now, retreated back to their ship. The battle was over before it had even begun. And without a single shot fired. Things calmed down for a while after that and by September the militia was not as vigilant as it had been over the summer. The British felt the time had come for them to try their luck again. And this time, nobody saw them coming. Another 74 gun ship entered the harbor. Some reports claim that it was the bulwark back for revenge, while others suggest it was a different ship called the la hogue. Meanwhile, in situate, Simeon Bates and his family were tending to the town lighthouse. Bates had been made lighthouse keeper in 1811, and had lived there with his wife and 9 children ever since. Simeon was a God fearing man who had served during the Revolutionary War years earlier. On the day the British ship came to situate, Simeon and 7 of his kids were away from the lighthouse. His daughters Rebecca, who was 21 at the time, and Abigail, 17, stayed behind with their mother. They looked out on the water and saw the ship in the harbor, with smaller boats full of British soldiers heading toward shore. Rebecca knew her way around a rifle and probably could have picked off one or two men from where she sat, but she worried the remaining soldiers might destroy the town as payback. And the girls were too far away to warn everyone from the impending attack. Instead, Abigail and Rebecca decided to fight back with something else entirely. Music. Rebecca picked up her fife, while Abigail fetched her drum, both of which had been left behind by some of the militiamen who had come to the lighthouse over the summer. They had taught the girls how to play several songs during their stay, a talent that was about to come in very handy. Abigail and Rebecca left the lighthouse on a mission to save their town. They found a spot near the harbor where they could remain hidden from sight, and started playing Yankee doodle as loud as possible. The sounds of the fife and the drum build the air. The British heard the song as they were approaching the docks, and as the girls had hoped, it filled them with dread. The men believed the militia had arrived to fight back. Not wanting to engage them and risk heavy casualties, the redcoats turned around and rode back to their ship. This time it wasn't a homegrown militia that had scared them away. It was an American army of two, and all had taken to ward off a few hundred troops, was a fife and a drum. A musical event that gave a whole new meaning to the term. British invasion.

Although the British weren't sure exactly how they remain convinced the cosmic phenomena had something to do with his death, and they also believed that it was an omen of an impending German invasion. And they weren't the only ones in a state of panic, the French swore it had caused the scent to flood. A letter to the royal observatory warned the event would cause the Pacific and Atlantic oceans to change basins, south and North American forests would be swept away, sharks, Wales, ships, and houses would go tumbling together across the deserts and oceans in a mass of chaos. The event in question was Halley's comets, a ball of volatile ices and dust, visible with a naked eye, named after Edmund Halley in 1758, the periodic or short term comets can be seen just once every 75 or 76 years. And in 1910, earth passed through the tail of the comet. Scientists using spectroscopic analysis found that the comet contained the toxic gas, cyanogen. In turn, French astronomer Nicolas Camille flammarion claimed that this gas would penetrate the atmosphere and potentially snuff out all life as we know it. People panicked, they bought gas masks, con men made a hefty fortune selling anti comet pills and anti comet umbrellas. When other world astronomers wrote that the gases were so diffused that they pose no threat, no one listened. Throughout times, comets have caused panic, ship captains were said to be swayed off course, and cultures believed in cause and effect when it came to such events. If a war or prominent death followed within the year, the comet was an omen, a sort of hindsight bias, if you will. But in 1910, people got really creative. In China, people believe the comet would cause war and that the dynasty was about to change. People didn't open their doors on some days. Others abstained from water, fearing that the gases had rained down on the earth. The New York Times ran a headline story about flemming's theory of deadly gas, a single grain of the potassium salt from the comet's tail was sufficient to cause instant death. According to the paper. Though the times also noted that leading scientists disagreed with the French astronomer's hypothesis, the article caused people to ransack stores for supplies and gas masks. Citizens sealed up keyholes to prevent the gas from entering their businesses and homes. And a cult called the sacred followers in Oklahoma attempted to perform a human sacrifice to stop the comet. Fortunately for the young girl involved, the police stopped them first. In Texas, two con men were arrested for selling sugar pills that promised to prevent death by comet. But customers stormed the police building and despite having been Khan, demanded the men's release. Con artists sold anti comet umbrellas to people who were convinced that what stopped The Rain would surely stop a speeding comet. And I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere about a T. Rex trying to hold up an umbrella, but I'll leave that one for you to sort out. In California, a religious prospector nailed his feet and one hand to a cross and despite the agony insisted rescuers leave him alone. In Georgia, the Atlanta journal and constitution claimed that the cloud cover had surely saved atlantas from near death. Those who didn't buy into the superstitious hype clamored for telescopes and other viewing devices, they purchased tickets that allowed them to stand on hotel rooftops to be closer to the comet and get a better look. Of course, life on earth did not end. Well, except for one man who accurately predicted his own death. He'd been born right when the comet passed through in 1835. He jokingly told reporters that God looked at him and the comment and said that they'd come in together and they might as well go out together too. At least, that would be his wish. And uncannily enough, he passed away on April 21st of 1910. When the comet was once again passing the earth. And that man? Mark Twain.

"deadbolt mystery society" Discussed on Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities

"Our world is full of the unexplainable, and if history is an open book, all of these amazing tales are right there on display. Just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities. George Washington is often remembered as a fierce general, commanding his army of trained soldiers from one battle to the next from the battle of Trenton to the siege of Yorktown to the battle of Princeton, history books have painted the American army at that time as a collection of the finest soldiers ever assembled. However, reality couldn't have been farther from the truth. Washington was, indeed, a powerful force during the war. He was calm, organized, and intelligent. He was also a soft spoken, not relying on loud outbursts to corral his troops. In fact, thanks to several illnesses contracted throughout his life, Washington most likely had a high pitched breathy voice due to his weakened lungs. But that didn't stop him from leading his troops to victory. Of course, they weren't always successful. The American army was made up of young men, many of whom had never served in the military before. They were inexperienced and scared, a combination that led to a rocky start for the war. One battle in particular happened to be the biggest of the entire revolution, and it has largely been forgotten for one big reason. The battle occurred in late August of 1776, weeks after the Declaration of Independence had been signed in Philadelphia. The British had been in Boston, but were run out of town back in March. They traveled up to Canada as they waited for a backup to arrive. Washington started moving his troops to New York a few weeks later, arriving in the Big Apple by mid April. His focus was on building up defenses in and Iran Brooklyn, as he believed New York would be the British Army's next target. His forces were thin, only several thousand. He had several forts built each with an array of cannons and surrounded by a large ditch. The British came to town from Canada with more than 30,000 troops. Ready to put an end to a war that had just begun. Their goal was not only to take over New York, but to take down Washington himself and destroy the Continental Army once and for all. British soldiers and Hesse and mercenaries took over Brooklyn with ease. General William Howe moved nearly 500 ships into the east river while his men stormed the beaches of Long Island. American forces paled in comparison with a paltry 9000 soldiers to keep up the entire defense. The British all but wiped out Washington's defenses as he rearranged his regiments and moved half of his troops from Long Island to Manhattan, partly to salvage the situation, partly because he believed that the British were more interested in the main island than they were in using Brooklyn as a distraction. Unfortunately, on August 26th, it was too late. British loyalists in the area helped general Howe and his men navigate the hills of the Jamaica pass late that night, along with the assistance of a local tavern owner and his son. The British managed to capture the 5 continental soldiers guarding the past without incident before coming up behind the Americans in a surprise attack. Hessians rushed Washington's troops while redcoats surrounded them. A brave 400 Maryland soldiers stayed behind to fight them head on in order to let their fellow men escape, but over half of those 400 were killed. Washington saw the writing on the wall, there was no way his army could outlast or out fight the British onslaught. But he refused to surrender. Instead, during a bad rainstorm, he orchestrated an evacuation of 9000 American soldiers, moving them across the east river under the cover of night. He worked for hours putting his men on boats, but by the next morning there was still many left to go. And the British weren't far behind. Washington was worried that he'd be found out before everyone had gotten away. Luckily, a heavy fog moved into the area, hiding his actions from the enemy long enough for every last soldier to get out of harm's way. Washington was the last person to get on a boat. He and all 9000 of his men reached Manhattan by 7 o'clock that morning. When House forces finally reached the American fortifications, they were stunned to find them empty. So why has the battle of Brooklyn gone relatively unnoticed by the history books? Well, because we lost. And history tends to remember the winners. The battle of Brooklyn went down as the largest battle of the war, roughly 300 American soldiers lost their lives compared to the 63 or so, British casualties that day. But their defeats in New York taught Washington and his men a valuable lesson in how to organize an army and in December of 1776, they put what they learned to good use. The battle of Trenton became a turning point in the revolution. It was a much needed win for America and it inspired others to join the fight. Had it not been for Washington's quick thinking back in Brooklyn, though, the war might have ended a lot differently. And a lot sooner. Sometimes the best way to win a fight is not to fight at all.

A prodigy he entertained local audiences, not just with his gift for music but with his distinctive stage performance, while the press initially ridiculed him for his facial expressions and animation as he played, the crowd ate him up.

"Is one. That's passed down from generation to generation but sometimes an item or building jumps out of the story and into reality in japan. For example. there's a bridge with tall tale behind it. About fifty miles from tokyo. In yamanashi prefecture is the city of otsuki. Its history dates all the way back to the jomon period between fourteen thousand three hundred bc. The city was nearly wiped off the map in nineteen forty five two days before the end of world war two following a bombing by the united states but it was able to bounce back after two other towns and four villages combined to form a new rookie in nineteen fifty four. Despite hundreds of years of change and turmoil including near extinction one of the city's lasting treasures is the sorrow hashi bridge also known as the monkey bridge. It's listed as one of the six official places of scenic beauty in japan and those who cross the gorge know that it's a well earned designation although no one knows exactly when the bridge was built an early military document from fourteen seventy nine does mention its existence. It is supported by four pairs of cantilever beams underneath which are embedded directly into the cliff on each side. The beams are also tended with their own peaked roofs to keep the rain and other debris away while the actual center of the bridge is held up by an arch. Of course a bridge doesn't wind up in the cabinet of curiosities simply because it's beautiful. No it's the reason for its nickname that elevates it from a basic way of crossing the river into an architectural marvel according to the legend the monkey bridge earned. Its name in one of two ways. The first comes from a story that dates back to the seventh century. Which told of a couple who desperately needed to cross the gorge with no bridge in place at the time monkeys living in the surrounding forest emerged and used their bodies to form a makeshift bridge. So that the couple could cross safely. A gardener named sheera echo watched all of this happen so he took it upon himself to build a permanent bridge so that others could cross the gorge easily and without any help from the local wildlife. The other tail isn't as romantic. But it does make more sense. Before the saruhashi bridge was installed. There was another more dilapidated structure in its place. It was said to have been so dangerous that the only creature capable of crossing. It was an agile monkey whether either of those tales is true. Remains to be seen but these saruhashi bridge is highly revered. It's one of japan's three unique bridges and its beauty has inspired numerous paintings. Over the last two centuries. Japan is rich in history and mythology and much of its architecture incorporates both the truth behind iconic bridges like the monkey bridge though is not as magical as the stories convey and yet they're elegance and composition make them wonders of the world beauty and industrial construction. Don't have to be mutually exclusive. All it takes is a skilled builder or in some cases a bunch of monkeys. The bridge the gap them. This episode was made possible by the deadbolt mystery society.

We have their books to remember them by mary. Shelley wrote numerous novels and short stories. But the work. She is best remembered for his frankenstein. Her story of a mad scientist who brings to life a creature made of cadaver parts. Frankenstein has been adapted into countless films and is considered by many as the birth of the science fiction genre. Jellies legacy is more than just a catalog of literary works though. She paved the way for the films books and comics. We enjoy today. Much like shelly. There was another author whose novels broke ground and influence those who followed him robert louis. Stevenson the man behind treasure island is why pirate tropes like x marks the spot and parrots on the shoulders are there in the first place but stevenson left behind more than his books and his legacy goes beyond the pirate genre he practically created a piece of the author lives to this day and one lucky person still owns it in eighteen. Ninety one at twelve year. Old girl named annie. I'd moved to the island of samoa in the south pacific. Her father henry clay. I'd had been appointed land. Commissioner there by president benjamin harrison. While in samoa henry met robert louis stevenson the author.

"World is full of the unexplainable and if history is an open book all of these amazing tales. Right there on display just waiting for us to explore. Welcome to the cabinet of curiosities. Dreams can tell us a lot about ourselves. Our fears our worries and our hopes for the future in fact the link between dreams and the future is stronger than we might think before. A landslide of coal waste buried a school in wales in nineteen sixty six. The students had reported dreaming about dine just days before it happened. One hundred sixteen children and twenty eight adults or lost in that disaster. Perhaps the most famous pre cognitive dream occurred in eighteen. Sixty five president. Abraham lincoln told his wife and some associates about a dream. He'd recently had where he'd seen his own dead body lane before him in the white house. Two weeks later. The casket holding his real corpse was placed in the exact same spot but dreams don't always tell us when we're going to die. Sometimes they can spark inspiration likely. Did for elias. How elijah's legacy is far more generous than he probably deserves. He's often described as a civil war. Hero a brilliant inventor and a cherished native of connecticut in reality he was a union private at the age of forty who lost credit on many of his inventions and was actually born in massachusetts but he never considered himself a failure nor did he let his shortcomings stop him from continuing to pursue his goals. One of his main focuses had been to improve the mechanical sewing machine which had been growing in popularity during the mid nineteenth century now others before him had iterative on the device. Dating all the way. Back to charles fredrick weisenthal in seventeen fifty five and thomas saints. An english inventor was said to have designed the sewing machine as we know it today. But it's not clear if he ever built a working model over the years numerous other inventors took a stab at enhancing. The sewing machine changing everything from the types of stitches they made to the variety of fabrics. One could pass through them however. Elias didn't get complacent. He innovated in his own ways and was awarded a patent in eighteen forty six for his version. That used a lock stitch design in fact. Elias is designed included three editions. That are still found on sewing machines today. A shuttle that passed back and forth beneath the fabric to accomplish the lock stitch and he also added an automatic feeder two. Then the third and final feature was a bit of a miracle at least two elias. Even trying to figure out how to improve the needle of his machine wondering where to place the i. It's usual position at the rear of the shaft wouldn't do so he went back to the drawing-board well actually he went to sleep one night. Elias dream that he'd been captured by a mysterious tribe. Their king had tasked him with building a sewing machine in span of just twenty four hours. I guess even in his dream he was faced with the same problem where to quit the eye of the needle except this time. If he couldn't complete the machine on schedule he'd be killed. Twenty four hours passed in his dream at least and he's still got no closer to figuring out the needle conundrum. The king was displeased and ordered elias to be executed but as the inventor was being escorted to his face. He caught a glimpse of the spears being carried by the warriors around him. All of them had holes near the spear points in his dream. Elias begged for just a little more time to finish his machine but by then it was too late. He woke up grateful. Although he hadn't been killed by his captors he had been struck with a brilliant new idea. He immediately got out of bed and headed into his workshop. Five hours later he was done with it. Elias how had created a sewing machine needle with an eye in its point. Unfortunately the dream had failed to inspire him to change his poor sales and marketing tactics. His revolutionary new machine did not perform well in the marketplace he got caught up in defending his patents and tried charging exorbitant licensing fee that no one wanted to pay. Meanwhile other inventors were moving ahead with their own sewing machine designs leaving elias and his holy needle in the dust. It's possible his failure to sell his brilliant. New idea hindered his future inventions as well in eighteen fifty one. Elias filed a patent for what he called an automatic continuous clothing enclosure. It's a shame he didn't try harder to market. It had he done so it might be his name listed as the inventor of something else. We all find helpful. The zipper this episode was made possible by the deadbolt mystery society.

"He had a good education and plenty of job opportunities. And at that time. In the american colonies there was plenty of growth to take advantage of as a teen. He joined the pennsylvania provincial troops gaining a quick military experienced during her service in king georgia's war when he left he had reached the rank of captain years later in seventeen sixty two william married a woman from england named elizabeth who he'd met while they're on a trip with his father and with that his life seemed to be entering that stable period most adults hope for after the wedding. The new couple moved back to north america settling in the colony of new jersey. Where he'd been given a new job serving as the colonies royal governor. Yeah it was a big deal than i imagined. William was pretty proud of that. He loved his english roots and had risen up the ranks of power pretty quickly. But i mentioned that he was the sort of apple that didn't fall close to the family tree. Didn't i you see. While william was utterly loyal to the crown of england. his father was different. The seventeen seventies were full of rumors of impending war. A war that would pit the american colonies against their overbearing. unjustified authorities across the atlantic and william's father supported that uprising. In fact the older man visited william many times to beg him to reconsider his military service would earn him top ranks in the american forces. He was sure of it. But william refused his loyalties were to the king and that was that it didn't matter that every single one of his fellow colonial governors had already thrown their hats into the rebellion. It didn't matter that williams own son had sided with william's father. It didn't matter. That troops were being assembled on both sides of the conflict. He was stubbornly committed to the crown. Finally in seventeen seventy six colonial forces put him and elizabeth under house arrest. She would die in custody but he would stay there until seventeen seventy eight when he was released in a prisoner exchange but even the loss of his wife and his job wasn't enough to stop him for the next few years as the revolutionary war raged. On across the colonies. William worked as the leader of the american loyalist movement. People actively working to defeat the americans. He even encouraged guerrilla warfare against rebel groups hoping to earn favor with the crown by helping british forces and he was vicious too but we all know how the revolutionary war was going to end right and by seventeen eighty. Two williams sought coming admitting defeat. He boarded a ship and headed to london leaving his life in america behind he would die there three decades later in eighteen thirteen and his father. Well daryl dad cut william almost entirely out of his autobiography and his will and that was a big deal to why well because all these years later folks are still talking about william's father while he's become something of an overlooked footnote although how could he really compete with a father who was a famous writer publisher scientist postmaster inventor political activists and statesmen a man. Who seemed to alter the course of history with his printing press and who had the courage to stand in a lightning storm with a kite and a key. Williams father benjamin.

There's a great woman. Women have been responsible for some of the most important achievements in history only to have their contributions severely reduced or even raced by men. Charles babich for example was credited with creating the analytical engine a precursor to the computer as we know today however it was a mathematician ada lovelace who developed an algorithm for the device that could computer newly numbers and although the analytical engine was never completed in her lifetime love laces algorithm made her the world's first computer programmer and achievement. That wouldn't be recognized for over a century. many were also demonized by the men who ruled over society. Not only were their efforts overshadowed they were often tainted overtime men's accusations and beliefs colored women's contributions and their reputations in a negative lights and it's taken decades sometimes even centuries for corrections to be made if at all want proof look no further than medieval ale wives. Though today's beer industry is a male dominated field. Beer was originally brewed by women in ancient babylon women. Not only made the beloved beverage but they sold it as well. It wasn't until beer's introduction into ancient egypt when men eventually took over the train. Meanwhile in europe women run taverns in breweries flourished brewster's produced a drink called ale which lacked the hops found in today's beer. In fact it was a german nun named hildegard who suggested hops as an ingredient at all. Thanks to its healing. Bettering and preserving properties sometime in the twelfth century yet despite an increasingly male presence in the beer trade over the years women still dominated during the middle ages neighbor called ale wives and they sold their goods in crowded markets which were packed to the brim with thirsty customers. So in order to stand out among the crowds the all wise don special clothing namely tall pointy hats. These hats were tall enough to be seen by anyone even from several yards away and of course they had to have beer to sell which meant hauling it from the brewing location to the markets but rather than stock individual bottles alewife transported their beer in large cauldrons which allowed them to carry a lot more at one time and those who sold beer out of their homes hung brooms above their front doors to indicate that they were open for business. Oh and one. Last detail vermin was also a major concern for brewers as mice and other rodents would nibble on the grain used for brewing combat that threat ale wives employed the use of cats to chase them away. Unfortunately these women owned businesses didn't last forever patriarchal society wouldn't let them and has the reformation spread across europe. Female brewers became the perfect scapegoats christianity which labeled them as witches. It was theorized that as the protestant and catholic churches waged war against each other for supremacy. They campaigned among the public to increase their numbers and there was no better way to boost recruitment than to offer protection against the biggest threat of all the devil agents of the church accused women of using their cauldrons to brew potions not beer and those black cats. They weren't really pest control. They said they were the witches familiar. 's little demons in animal form that attended to a witches every need eventually women had no choice but to abandon the beer trade to save their lives in the mid fifteen hundreds one english town even passed a law prohibiting women between the ages of fourteen and forty from becoming l. wives after all if a woman was working she was probably too busy to get married. Let alone tend to her household and children. From that point forward men rose to prominence as makers and sellers of beer a tradition that has continued to this day and the lives. Well they never truly outgrew their which he accusations there pointy hats broomsticks cauldrons and cats all became cliches of witches and we can still find them depicted that way in books films and television today though some historians argue about the accuracy of such claims. It's hard not to see the link between the l. wives of old and the witches. We know today regardless it's clear that women invented the beer industry only to have it taken away by men.

The mayor had already placed a makeshift marker at one end of the mound with the words abandoned rear carefully stenciled on wooden cross as the mayor went on about the fallen hero.
