The democratic will over the free silver issue. Will mckinley loads what he sees. As will brian stirring up divisions and making class warfare to quote the ohio republican on another front porch occasion my countrymen the most un-american of all appeals observable in this campaign is the one which seeks to array labor against capital employer against employee. Basically william m doesn't want this to turn into a campaign of main street verse wall street but that dynamic is definitely taking shape with particular thanks to his own campaign manager and republican national committee. President mark hanna. Working out of new york mark leans into the class division rhetoric as he courts donations from industrial titans. This produces serious results the tycoons or robber barons whom we've come to know quite well pony up john rockefeller's standard oil donates. Two hundred fifty thousand dollars. John himself throws in another two thousand five hundred. The barren of banking j pierpont morgan donates. Another two hundred fifty thousand dollars to the republican cause and those still reeling from the panic of eighteen ninety three and the pullman strike various railroads managed to muster another one hundred seventy four thousand all in all with donations from business tycoons pouring in daily the republican campaign spins about three point five million dollars by comparison.

The republicans also published one hundred twenty million pieces of campaign literature as well as newspaper articles attacking brian. The mckinley campaign even suggests that the young nebraskan isn't just for free silver but a true radical an anarchist. Just like the protesters at the hey marketed decade. Back sound stacked. But it's not like william jennings bryan doesn't have his supporters grover cleveland style bourbon. Democrats now called gold democrats peeling off but will. Brian is seen real success.

"Republican party turns to indiana's benjamin harrison as their presidential candidate for eight though justice. Bearded in salt-and-pepper is james. Blaine ben brings far less baggage and has an impressive political resume that includes being civil war vet lawyer. Us senator and party leader nor does it hurt the bins. Pedigree is as american as apple pie. His father was a congressman. His grandfather was short lived. Us president william henry harrison and his great grandfather was the declaration of independence signing virginia. By the same name benjamin harrison thus the diminutive five foot six republican will seek to arrest the office of president than the nearly six foot over two hundred fifty pound democratic incumbent. Now as i said earlier the two major parties currently do not differ much policy that means political campaigns of the era often come down to add hominem character assassination as we saw in eighteen. Eighty four with questions over grover. The goods sexual past and james blames fancy dining habits in eighteen eighty eight. The new rumor is that the newlywed president wants drunkenly. Beat his young bride francis. Meanwhile the democrats try to make something of been. Harrison's fondness for wearing a beaver hat. They seeing his grandfather's hat is too big for ben republicans. Reply the same old hat if it's been just right but this election we'll get more into policy than the last grover. Cleveland has given the republicans something to distinguish themselves from the democrats. The question of the tariff growers been going on and on about lowering the tariff. Lately last december he devoted his annual message speech. That future generations will call the state of the union to the idea of lower tariffs. He said the plain simple duty which we owe. The people is to reduce taxation to the necessary expenses of an economical operation of the government and to restore to the business of the country. The money which we hold in the treasury through the perversion of governmental powers. These things can and should be done with safety to all our industries without danger to the opportunity for remunerative labor which are working men need and with benefit to them and all our people by keeping their means of subsistence and increasing measure of comforts in brief overseas the government holding too much cash. Roughly one hundred forty million and thinks it's time to cut. Uncle sam's take a lower the prices on goods by lowering international tariffs. He's he's a win for everyone but republicans disagree they depict. The democratic president is a free trade zealot whose policies will hurt american businesses and workers as they compete against europe's quote unquote hopper labor. Things only get worse gore on this front and final weeks before the election. George could be a california. Republican writes a letter posing as a british man named charles murchison to the british ambassador to the united states. Sir lionel sackville west in it george asks for whom he should. Vote the ambassador. Replies there is every reason to believe that while upholding the position. He has taken president. Grover cleveland will manifest a spirit of conciliation in dealing with tariff essentially. If grover gets elected the british expect he will push for a lower tariff with them. Republicans published the letter weeks before the election. Claiming that approves grover wants free trade with the brits americans don't like that even some democrats particularly irish democrats abandoned grover at point come november. Neither candidate secures the majority of the popular vote. Grover does win the plurality but of course that doesn't really matter with the aid of new york indiana and perhaps some bought and paid for votes. Ben harrison wins the electoral college and thus the presidency tells a friend after the loss. That perhaps i made a mistake from the party standpoint. A damn it was the right thing to do That's over all right. The man's strength is his weakness is still a straight shooter. Who doesn't change his politics to police. The party president benjamin harrison and his back in power republican colleagues quickly work to fulfill their promise on the tariff and further work to limit the industrialists in some ways. A young representative from ohio. Named william mckinley put forth the tariff act of eighteen ninety which eliminate some tariffs while raising other almost fifty percent. They also passed. The sherman antitrust act hoping to use it to break up some of the massive corporations forming in the country ek standard oil and carnegie steel. But it doesn't take long for average citizens to realize that the tariffs are benefiting big business while they the average citizens are paying more for goods nor is the sherman antitrust act gain and forced as a result the democrats crushed the republicans in the eighteen ninety midterm election and in eighteen. Ninety two americans. Decide to make grover cleveland the first and only today nonconsecutive two-term president. It's a great victory for grover.

"18 95 when US president Grover Cleveland incorporated them and decorations for the Christmas tree at the White House. So we're gonna go off on a little tension here some fun Trivia fax about Grover Cleveland, So he's the only U. S president who ever served two non consecutive terms. Meaning he was. Both are 22nd and our 24th, president of the United States, The lighting of the Christmas tree would be during his second term as president. And just in case you're wondering the 23rd president. The one who interrupted those two terms was Benjamin Harrison, the grandson of our ninth president, William Henry Harrison. Sorry, recently been showing up in a lot of ridiculous history episodes and sometimes that stuff just gonna sticks with you. Anyway. Cleveland's tree Grover Cleveland's tree featured 100 lights with bulbs of various colors, and it must have been a really impressive sight for the time. Some of the movers and shakers in America. In other words, People had a ton of cash to burn. They began to put up their own decorated and lit Christmas trees. But it was not something the average person could do. Because at that time, most of the United States wasn't wired for electricity, so to even have a lit Christmas tree with electric lights. You would have to set up a generator. You'd also typically have to hire an electrician's actually wire it up. And in today's money that would mean that decorating a tree could cost at least a couple of thousands of dollars. So only the hoity toity folks who Wanted to show off their wealth could really afford to have a Christmas tree with electric lights at that time. Anyway. Over the course of the early 19 hundreds, electric lights began to gain popularity as people became more comfortable with the idea of electricity. And it's really no wonder that folks were nervous. At first fire is something you can see, at least in most cases, but electricity could be deadly but was also invisible. And Edison's company had already engaged in some pretty heavy smear campaigns against alternating current. Since Edison was pushing direct current as a means to distribute electricity regionally, and a lot of those events and demonstrations there's company held involves showing off how deadly electricity could be so We're kind of feeding into that fear. But the allure of the lights was undeniable. And by that, I mean not just Christmas lights. I mean your run of the mill lightbulbs now, even in 1903 when General Electric introduced string Christmas light kits, which will let people string up their own lights at home without necessarily the use of an electrician's I was still really expensive. A string of lights and General Electric actually referred to these strings as festoons. Anyway, The string lights consisted of eight whole lightbulb sockets and they would hold Edison light bulbs, and it cost the equivalent of about $300 today. That's just the lights. And this was not something that the average family would necessarily spring for. Also, you wouldn't buy these kids he would rent them for $300. So after the rental period, you would actually have to return them. So Yikes. The bulb's on these things were small round bulbs almost like manager incandescent light bulbs in 1919. General Electric introduced a new bulb shaped and filament. It was more of a flame shape is that Sort of classic large kind of clunky retro looking like, Well, that was the general shape that they introduced and it had a filament made out of Mazda tungsten. The filament is the party incandescent bulb that actually glows. The company would use Mazda filaments and all sorts of lamp bulbs, not just Christmas ones. There were a couple of possibly apocryphal stories about some smaller companies around this time that played an important role in popularizing Christmas lights. One of those stories is about a telephone company employee named Ralph E. Morris, who at some point different versions of the story condemned it to either 18 95 the same year that Grover Cleveland was lighting up the White House or 19 0. Wait. There's a pretty big discrepancy, but The stories say that he looked at a telephone switchboard and telephone switchboards had these little tiny light bulbs mounted in them. That would light up when you were making connections, and he thought those little light balls might make nice Christmas decorations. So he took a bunch of those little light bulbs. A bunch of telephone wire wired them all together, electrified the wire and made up a little Let Christmas tree a little fake lit Christmas tree because the story says That he made a makeshift Christmas tree out of feathers. I don't know exactly how he did it. But that's what the story says His son would later write an article claiming that his father invented Christmas lights, which wasn't quite accurate. They predated this, but I'm pretty sure it was an honest mistake, not something that was done, you know. Maliciously. Now. The other, possibly apocryphal story involves a guy named Albert Sadakata. This story goes that when Sadako was 15, he heard about a terrible tragedy involving a deadly fire that began when a Christmas tree lit with candles caught fire and People died. As a result, his family made novelty lights with white bulbs. So we thought, Hey, how about we change out those regular bulbs with bulbs of different colors, and we use electric lights instead of candles to light up a Christmas tree? According to this story, he and his brothers began to do just that, And a few years later, they led an effort to bring together several small, competing light Cos the role going for the same customers and they form the National Outfit Manufacturers Association, or Noma. Which would become its own company and by 1925 became the leading manufacturing company for electric Christmas lights. Now his power companies wired up the United States for electricity. The popularity of electric Christmas lights began to grow in 1920 hardware store owner in California named Frederick Nash. Decorated trees outside his establishment, and that quickly grew into a tradition in which a nine block stretch of the road in front of his business would end up having trees just draped and lights and it became the first big documented outdoor Christmas lights display. When we come back, I'll talk more about the evolution of Christmas lights, and then we'll dive into how the heck they work and In the case of traditional Christmas lights, how they don't work if just one bulb goes bad, but let's take.

Because when I asked how will history judge the current unconstitutional lockdowns and curfews? How will Cuomo Newsome, Whitner and the other demos be judged and I compare it to the Japanese interment of World War two and I told you I wrote about it as martial law in my book, our fight for America. I've given you an awful lot to think about. Now can trump run again is a prosaic question that needs to be answered. Yes, he can. I hope he doesn't. I hope that Mr Pompeo Is run in the next election If Trump doesn't prevail in this recount business I'm a huge fan of Pompeo. Who's a former Army ranger number one at West Point, which means an awful lot to me. Trump could run again. Grover Cleveland lost an election after only one term. And then four years later, he won against Benjamin Harrison. The reason Harrison became very unpopular. Going to high tariffs and corruption. Cleveland was the only one out of 13 1 termers to run a second time. Mark my words. Our Harris Biden team.

"Juliet on 77. W A. B C ah! Now we were discussing before one of our call is, Jett said Juliet had mentioned the presidency of Grover Cleveland. Yes, randomly and as perfect because if, in fact, Donald Trump takes your advice and shut will have fake Chris Christie. He can follow in the footsteps of the only president Grover Cleveland to serve two non consecutive terms. And the interesting thing about Grover Cleveland is that he had roots in New Jersey and in New York. He was born in Caldwell, New Jersey, He ended up dying in Princeton, New Jersey, but he became the mayor of Buffalo, New York, and he became the governor of New York. And was selected as the Democratic Party candidate to run for presidency in 18 84. Now, the only reason he was chosen, is it We're going to go with Samuel J. Tilden. But he was very ill Tildon high School. That was where my mother went in Brooklyn, and so many of our listeners That's who was named after so Tilden steps aside, It's a brawl and all of a sudden, Grover Cleveland becomes a Democrat. And he runs against the guy represented of blame from Maine. So you figure okay, finally, a Democrat's gonna win because it was all Republicans ever since Lincoln He won by the bearish number of votes. In fact, his own state he won New York by 1200 votes. He won the electoral College to 19 to 1 82. It was like so close And what put him over the top is that there were Republicans who jumped ship and supported him were called mug lumps. Muslims. That's right. And they said the Republican Party has become the rip Artie of Rum, Roman ism and rebellious. Oh, yeah, the three R's are reading writing arithmetic, but from what was it run something in the room? Roman is, um Roman Catholic face and rebellion. Meantime, he gets elected by the barest of votes right gets in. And he was without a wife. He had had five Children, but his wife had passed away. So his sister service the hostess of the White House for two years, and then he married a 21 year old coed from Wells College. He was 49 at the time talking about a guy like somebody sitting next to me. Oh, talk about a guy with a midlife crisis, his second So he goes through this process and in 18 80 80 runs for reelection. So the Democrats naturally he is the sitting president a given the nomination, but the Republicans elect from Indiana, Benjamin Harrison. Benjamin Harrison runs against him and he wins NEW York. Benjamin Harrison, This is Grover Cleveland's own state. Cleveland loses New York by 14,000 votes, But Grover Cleveland wins the popular vote 48 a half percent toe Harrison's 47 a half percent But guess who won the Electoral College? Harrison to 33 to 1 68. And what happened. Grover Cleveland gracefully left and just went into retirement for four years plotting his comeback. Just like many of saying that Donald Trump should do plot You come back in 2024. So in 18 92, he ran again. Democrats gave him the nomination because obviously they figured a this guy He's either won or lost by the smallest of margins. And guess who we tell us as his vice presidential running mate.

Yeah, he won the election against the sitting President Harrison because President Harrison's wife had been very sick with tuberculosis. She died on October 25th. He did not campaign and there was no campaigning in the less two weeks from October. 25th 2 November fourth. In honor of President Harrison's loss. Wife.

"Yeah, we almost had a president Samuel Tilden. Give Sami Tillman haymaker. She had for the mapmaker ofthe sudden? Yeah, yeah, I mean, everybody liked him a lot more. But he's cobbled together. A win from small states and Colorado had just been leading. This is the hinky part on DH. They didn't have any popular vote. There was no vote whatsoever. They just did some electoral voting and it went all to Hey, so he put it together with Colorado. So, with very little popular vote, and then in one state, no popular vote and that crazy anyone, and he went on to be the greatest president This country's ever seen. I mean, Colorado, I guess they were just like we don't even have pens and pencils. Can you give us like, just going? The Buffaloes were just like we're all boxes over here. We haven't even started unpacking exactly. So they said. Oh, well, let's just give it to the Hayes. Yeah, good on you. Yeah, you got next. 18 88 Benji Harrison lost the popular vote by more than 95,000 votes to Grover Cleveland won the electoral vote by 65. And this is one of the cases where they say it worked exactly like we planned it Tio with electoral college because You can't just overwhelmed someone in one region and get the presidency. What happened? It's so in six states in the South, So the whole campaign pretty much was based on. We want the tariff. We don't want the tariff. Well, the north and everybody else wanted the terrace right. South didn't want the tariff. So Grover Cleveland was like no tariff whatsoever in the South voted as a bloc. They had a bunch of people. He won the popular vote by like 65%. Huge number. Yeah, but in the other 32 states he lost by 425,000 votes. No, no, he lost by 300,000. He'd won by 425. Okay, so 32 states were against him combined. Six states were forum and the electoral college steps in and prevents The south from picking the president for the rest of the country, right? Flawless. And then not flawless. Let's go to the year 2000. Yeah, so Bush V. Gore? Yeah, I was. Driving across country moving to Los Angeles during this election, and I made a self made video of my journey, which Most of which was me singing along the songs on the radio in My You all. Yeah, and I've still got this. I should, like, get it digitized and posted at some points pretty funny. But I remember very specifically one part in the thing. I woke up in New Mexico and I'm telling you sleepy and you don't remember going to sleep. I remember going to sleep, but I woke up and I said, Yeah, you know, here I am in New Mexico. It's weird. I woke up this morning and they don't know who the president is. And it's like captured in time. This moment where I realized was sleeping. Mai's like that's weird. I went to bed expecting. As you know, that night, everybody was going to rig or, well, every I think it was called a couple of different ways. A couple of different times it went back and forth. But when everybody went to bed, it was like Gore all the way like he'd won the popular vote. They knew it was close, but everybody had called Gore. And and then they woke up in there like Ah, a second and then a huge, huge mess Cluster. Uh, ensued afterwards. Which involved the court system. It involved, um, hanging chads. Well, not only that. You remember like there was this one county where, like their votes just got lost for a little while. Yeah. On the way, Teo be counted there just vanished. Um, and then reappeared later on like that kind of stuff. You should just basically be like, no, the whole state. Everybody has to wait. The whole state has to start over vote again. Yeah, that might have been a good move. They're like accusations of disenfranchisement of black voters by in black areas. Yet there were also I mean, both sides had a lot of arguments like when you really start peeling back the layers and researching this You know, they're like, write it will make you cry, and they're just like dozens and dozens of Factors that many people never even saw on the nightly news. Yeah, you know. Military votes or disenfranchised voters and poor counties. And then I think Gore asked for a recount and only four counties. When people are saying he should have asked for a hand recount in all the counties and in the end POTUS was decided for the country by less than like Less than 400 votes. Is that what it came down to? Well, I mean, it depends because all the different factors like Do we count these votes? What about these? These people meant to vote for Gore or Bush. And it was cloudy. And what about these hanging Chad? So there's all different kinds of numbers, but I've seen one I've seen one that said it was less than 100 votes. Was the deciding factor. So okay, so it came down to 100 votes. But Florida's winner take all. So That means that those 100 votes since Bush got those 100 votes. He got all 25. Votes in the Electoral College for Florida, which just so happen to put him at exactly the amount of electoral votes he needed to win the presidency, which was to 71 Is crazy. I mean, I've seen look as many people have since then. It like the independent studies they did afterward and It just depends on which ones you want to read. Like I saw today I saw like 10 independent studies, and six of them showed that Gore was the definite winner for from showed that Bush wass So it's just confusing.

"To get to today's urban gardens, let's go back in time to the founding of the US, there were certainly major cities Philadelphia New York Boston, but it wasn't. Until the eighteen hundreds that more and more people move to cities and urban ization in the US really got underway. These are people who would have grown almost all their own food before, but now they live in a city. They can buy food at the market. So how many of them kept up gardening in their new urban homes? A lot of food production went on. On within city boundaries well through the start of the twentieth century, there were lots and lots of urban livestock, because people were raising pigs and cows and chicken for food within city limits anesthesia day as a historian at the University of Delaware, and she's working on a PhD about Victory Gardens. It's only really during the city, Beautiful Movement and the progressive era that city start passing ordinances that actually outlawed these forms of local food production in the name of cleanliness and sanitation and middle-class standards of respectability, because only poor people grow their. Their own food. The city beautiful movement was big deal during the eighteen nineteen in one thousand, nine hundred wealthy urbanites, all this rural migration and immigration, and of course, the rising inequality and poverty and tenements in their cities, and they were not happy. They tried to clean the city up. They built big boulevards and parks with monumental fountains, and eventually they also introduced strict zoning laws and chickens and vegetable patches were not part of these new beautiful cities urban agriculture. Something poor people needed. It had to go some cities overtime had already. Already banned maybe the animals in the streets, or even keeping certain animals within city limits, but this really solidified during the city, beautiful movement city started to enact ordinances that said no farm animals in the city at all and no front yard vegetables, either meanwhile the poor had more pressing concerns than how the city looked frequently, when bad harvests and economic fluctuations raised food prices, they could not get to eat. There were dozens of major food riots in American cities throughout the eighteen hundreds. The first urban gardening movement starts in eighteen ninety. Ninety three in the town of Detroit, because of this panic of eighteen, ninety three, there were lots of panics. In those days, the stock market was very new, very volatile and long story short, suddenly, basically overnight, forty three percent of detroiters are unemployed in what had been a booming city and the Mayor Hazel S Pingree I has to find some way to answer. The cries of his constituents. So what he does is, he starts the first urban farming movement, which is ironically happening at the same time that many productive activities within the. The city are being outlawed. In other cities, urban leaders didn't want farms in their cities, but they also didn't want riots, and so letting poor people groza food on vacant land was seen as an acceptable temporary band aid in times of shortages. The Detroit plan was called the potato, patch plan and it had pretty impressive results by eighteen, ninety, six seventeen hundred families were farming more than four hundred acres in the city, and there are letters there from local detroiters writing into mayor Pingree, saying you so much I was able to grow. Grow Food for my family and lots of the people that wrote in. It's heartbreaking, because these letters are hardly legible there in broken English. Many of them were recent, German and Polish immigrants who were taking advantage of this program to grow foods dot connected them to their home as well as to feed their families. The Potato Patch program was seen as a success, but it was never meant to be permanent in less than a decade when economic situation in Detroit started to improve urban farms kind of petered out until the next big. Big Crisis, which was World War, one, the city beautiful movement had stamped out urban gardening the Detroit potato patches were gone, but suddenly there was a huge need both for food, and for kind of coming together in a patriotic sense. At least that's how Charles lay through peck sought. He was a lumber baron from New Jersey and early on in the days of the European conflict. He wrote the US government and said people should be reason. Food would help them contribute to the war help stock shortages, and the USDA promptly said Sir. We've got better ideas going here for better uses of fertilizer and seed supplies so thanks for your input and no thanks Charles hadn't made his fortune by taking no for an answer, so he took that Fortuna and started a Liberty Garden Movement himself, and he quickly found a whole group of rich people who wanted to join him in getting Americans. Gardening again to support the war Charles and his friends created a movement. There were Liberty Gardens. Gardens on Boston Common, and in Union Square in New York and big corporations like Eastman Kodak and General Electric set aside land at their factories for employees to grow and boy scouts even had a garden at Grover Cleveland's Childhood Home in New Jersey. Even the government caught the Liberty Garden fever, and they created a school program to teach budding young home farmers how to grow food and support. The soldiers was actually one of the first nationally. Nationally promoted curricula in the country, the Liberty Garden Movement seemed to really catch the public imagination. However, there was no infrastructure for collecting numbers. The only source we have is Charles Lathrop pack himself wrote a book called the war garden victorious in one, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, and he claims that the movements sponsored five million gardens which time when there were just over six million actual professional farmers in the US is kind of impressive but remember. Remember Charles is our only source for this number and he might have been biased. It's really incredibly hard to say, but despite its holds on the national imagination, it had nowhere near the impact of world. War Two Gardens in terms at share mount of produce ground, sheer numbers of people participating sheer difference it made in the global war effort, and that's probably why you listeners at least in the US you don't use the Term Liberty Garden. Gardens you probably say victory garden.

I don't know if you've ever made it through but it is I had a few false starts and then I did it like a year ago and I actually really enjoyed it.

"Surgery. President Cleveland began to wonder more and more about the after effects of this whole plan. It had already been explained to him that he was going to lose part of his jaw in the process and he had Dan Lamont reach out to Dr Brian to ask if his speaking voice was going to be impacted by the surgery the president also wanted to know how soon he could resume his duties begin meeting with politicians. Because this whole silver issue was still in the mix and what he was really asking was how soon he could do his job without anybody realizing that the president had had surgery so Bryant explained that. Initially the president's speech would be different but that he was working with a prostitute contest he would make an artificial jaw. That could fix the problem and as for meetings it was going to take a month for the president to recover. He tried to be clear that this was an estimate. Presuming everything went well. He did withhold some information though so that he didn't add stress to the situation specifically. He did not bring up the possibility that they might need to remove a section of skull above the jaw if it turned out the cancer had spread farther than they realized. Yeah his logic in. That was like if we have to do that. There is no covering this up anyway so I may as well not even tell him because I can't give him any kind of assurance that we can keep a secret at that point. In the meantime President Cleveland worked really furiously to handle as much of his work ahead of the trip on the united as he could something he was known for having was a very cluttered desk and he was really trying to get it completely cleared off and then late in the afternoon on June thirtieth in Lamont travelled by train in a private Carta Jersey City and from there they took a ferry Manhattan and then they made the final leg to peer a in a carriage and then they're they boarded a small boat which took them to the Oneida which was waiting in the East river when a reporter approached him during the ferry ride. The president said that he was just going to his summer house for arrest. The doctors were already on board. They had all arrived that afternoon. All leaving Manhattan from different peers. So that they did not draw attention. All the men spent a cordial evening together before retiring to bed. The next morning started with a physical exam of the president which Dr Jane Janeway conducted. He was happy with the president's vitals. Janeway gave him a mouth disinfectant to prepping for the surgery. There had been a brief hope that the doctor would be able to use nitrous oxide for the surgery rather than resorting to ether. Do the more dangerous nature of ether and possible poor reactions to it but they realize that the tumor was bad enough that that was simply not going to work so the decision was made that they would start with nitrous and then they would transition to either if they needed to after the pre surgery checks and a little bit of breakfast. The United started its journey and once the yacht passed into the long island sound. They all made their way to the saloon turned surgical suite just afternoon. The doctors along with the ship's Steward Charles Peterson who was assisting in a non medical capacity started an unprecedented operation on the president. The patient did not respond well to the nitrous. Oxide took a double dose to get him unconscious which meant that either. Was going to have to be used eventually. The procedure began with two TS being removed. Those were the by cusp is on his upper left jaw wants his teeth had been pulled by the dentist. The removal of the tumor began although it appeared for a brief moment that the president was actually waking up. So that meant that. They all had to stop what they were doing while. Additional gas was administered and then resume once the patient was fully under again. Once the cutting of the soft palate was complete the president was given ether before the damaged bone and surrounding tissue were removed. The cancer had spread more than had been expected but it did not affect one of the areas. They had been most concerned about which was the Izhak socket. Ultimately a section of the upper jaw several more teeth and a section of hard palate were also removed. It was over roughly ninety minutes after it started. President Cleveland started waking up just before three. Pm Obviously and unsurprisingly in pain he was given morphine and then taken with great effort he was a large man to his cabin and the rest of the day. One of the doctors always with him checking his vitals in standing by should he awake in his mouth was packed with gauze so even when he did try to speak a little bit. It was pretty rough going trying to understand him. But by evening he was deemed to be in stable condition which was a huge relief to everyone. And then the next day he was even better he was actually able to walk around the ship of it. So you recall earlier. They had told a reporter. He was on the way to his summer home. And when the ONEIDA had docked in buzzards Bay Massachusetts which was where that summer home was by Independence Day press started to wonder where he really was but he had said he was getting some rest and they had not seen anything of him so while there were rumors among the reporters that something might be up. They just really didn't have anything to report. A few papers. Did run articles that speculated that something might be wrong with the President Mrs Cleveland. Phoned the papers. Tell them that her husband was fishing and that all was well she kind of very politely was like please stop printing things. Suggesting there's something wrong with my husband Meanwhile Dr Hasbrouck. The dentist had left the yacht on July second for another appointment late July fourth like late. In the evening the rest of the surgical team was led off at Sag harbor although Bryant just went ashore at Sag harbor briefly and then returned to the yacht. After a quick supply run and then he in Cleveland traveled onto buzzards Bay or the first lady who at this point was seven months pregnant was waiting at Grey Gables which is the name of their summer home. The President Dr Bryant and Dan Lamont finally arrived there on late July fifths Lamont issued a statement to the press that they had simply been pretty leisurely about their travel and that they had state album the water longer than they had initially planned because the fishing was so good that they didn't WanNa come in and to address the health rumors. He said that the president had been dealing with the bout of rheumatism. But nothing more but rumors had already started spreading in New York that the president had a growth in his mouth. The reporter managed to get Dr Bryant when he was outside the House. But the doctor just corroborated the whole rheumatism story and ended the interview in questions about a tumor and surgery started. The reporter published the entire conversation but as time wore on and Brian and Lamont stuck to their stories. The press eventually bought it and by July eight started reporting that the president was recovering from some minor tooth malady and nothing more ominous than that. Yeah they let the two things slip in a little bit since they had already told the ships currently. It's like he just had to get some teeth bowl. It's no big until I tend. The president was recovered enough to go out fishing with Lamont and Bryant on his sailboat which was named the roofs presumably for his toddler daughter. They had a child already while they were pregnant with their second during his stay at Grey Gables Process Dante's Castle Gibson had set up a little lab at the House and he was able to cast the president's mouth and make vulcanized plate that plugged the hole that had been left by the surgery in this played also made Cleveland's cheek and face look normal and all of this helped sell the reuss that he had never been seriously ill sometime in mid July Bryant noticed during an examination of Cleveland's mouth that there was another growth at the edge of the surgical wound. The entire team was brought back except for Dr Hasbrouck who had leaked the story in New York. Once again they use the operating room on the United on July seventeenth. The procedure seems to have been short and uncomplicated and to the outside world hit appeared that the president had just gone on a day trip with his friend. Benedict quick that it was like a normal overnight trip. He was back the next morning but as the president's life was returning to something that looked like normal and he was starting to take meetings again a New York reporter named EJ Edwards was on the case. It turned out that when Dr Hasbro had taken the job. He had done so with the understanding that he was going to be able to leave the uniter right after the surgery and make another appointment where he had promised to handle anesthesia but because he was dropped off on July second instead of July first which is what he had initially asked for. He was so late to the procedure that it was cancelled and to explain his absence. Heap spilled the beans on the president's secret surgery in turn the man that he told shared that information and it made its way to the reporter Edwards Edwards carefully checked out this story and it did not run until August twenty third when it appeared in the Philadelphia Press under the headline quote. The president a very sick man an operation performed on him on Mr Bendix yacht part of the jar removed. Yeah he had a lot of the details. A hundred percent rate. There were a few things that weren't quite accurate and the dentist had only named himself and Dr Bryant. The other doctors names were at least left out of it but in going to press with this story Edwards was gambling and ultimately he lost although his story was picked up by the wire newspapers everywhere. The President of course flatly denied it and because there was a lot of competition amongst papers there were other outlets perfectly willing to defend the story that the president was fine and flat out accused. Ej Edwards lying. And just making this entire thing up. Alexander McClure rival paper. The Philadelphia Times was friends with grover Cleveland and he helped to discredit Edwards to help with his version of the story. Which was that? He was in perfect health. The president who had been kind of reclusive despite the raging war going on over silver in Washington. Dc had started making some really obvious public outings. He would even take Francis who was due to deliver a baby at any day on a trip from buzzards bay to Washington so as the Sherman Silver Purchase. Act was facing repeal which eventually happened and he was making a good recovery and welcoming his second daughter into the world grover. Cleveland found that the press was more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Then this reporter. Ej Edwards in the controversy over the story deeply damage the reporters reputation although he did continue to work in reporting grover. Cleveland died on June twenty-fourth nineteen eight and the secret keepers regarding the events on the united in eighteen ninety three were also aging and dying when Dr Bryant died in nineteen fourteen that left only three living men who knew the entire truth they were John Erdman.

"With the panic and his Cleveland was working this. The Nation through that financial panic. He had a more personal crisis brewing. He was soon to be a father. Although that was not publicly known at the time and was not considered a crisis but his wife Francis was two months pregnant when president. Cleveland took his second oath of office. But the thing that would become more pressing with something that the president discovered eleven days after that April. Twenty third statement about repealing. The Sherman Silver Purchase Act on May fifth 1893. He noticed a rough spot on the roof of his mouth but really deep in the midst of running a country that was in a precarious state. He did not do anything about this. Initially but over the next six weeks that rough spot turned into a lump that got bigger reportedly. The president was often up at night because of it although whether that was from pain or from simply worrying about the situation is a little bit of an issue of speculation he actually had his wife Francis look at it and she was as she put it alarmed when I saw it and so she made the decision that they had to get a doctor to look at it immediately. The doctor was their regular physician. Dr Joseph Decatur Bryant. Dr Bryant was their family physician but he also specialized in oral tumors. So it makes sense that Francis would reach outside the government's presidential resources and get him involved. Francis wrote to Dr Bryant on June. Eighteenth tell him that. There was some sort of problem on the roof of her husband's mouth and that she would like to speak with the doctor. The next day Francis had errands on the nineteenth ticketed Jersey City and she asked for a meeting there in their brief visit. She told Dr Bryant the details of this gross appearance and also that she was quite worried about it the meeting ended with Bryant planning a trip to Washington. Dc to examine the president. Yeah there are actually some theories that probably When Grover Cleveland took office that he would have asked Bryant because he was a trusted family friend and had been their family doctor to become the presidential doctor but Bryant. Didn't we've has practice in New York But there was even while Francis was meeting with Dr Bryant. Another doctor on the case. The President's dentist had seen the lesion and so he contacted the president's doctor about it. That physician was Dr Robert M O'Reilly and so he had examined the president's mouth and he found that growth quite worrying as well. He wanted to have tissue from the growth tested. But without anyone knowing that the sample had come from the president's person so he took a scraping and he sent it as an anonymous sample to an army lab. While the president's name was not on the sample it did have a note that it was an incredibly important specimen. And that led pathologist Dr William Welsh to suspect that it was a sample of grover Cleveland's tissue. That probably made it a lot more unpleasant for him to come to the conclusion at the end of this examination that the sample was from a malignant tumor and as that lab examination was happening of the tissue. Dr Bryant had arrived in Washington and had seen President Cleveland himself. He described the tumor to his patient as quote a bad-looking tenant and he told him that he should have it removed and very soon so of course this was terrible news and not just because of the president had a frightening cancerous growth that could jeopardize his health or maybe his life also because cancer was really a PR nightmare. At this point. People wouldn't even say the word cancer if they could avoid it in any way they would use just to keep the name out of their mouths. This was of course almost a hundred and thirty years ago. The medical establishments understanding of cancer was a lot less robust than it is today and they were not nearly as many treatment options saying someone had cancer at the time was almost like saying they were already dead. Society was just downright phobic about it and there was serious stigma around it so for a president and one only just a few months into his term to have cancer was the kind of news that could cause a panic in the midst of an already existing financial panic political adversaries. And even those with whom the president had tentative ally. Ship could use that kind of information against him and his effort to repeal the Sherman silver purchase act could be completely ruined if people thought that he was in a weakened physical state. Dr Bryant thought the best course of treatment for president. Cleveland was surgery. He and Dr O'reilly discussed the matter and then met with the president and the President Secretary of Warren close friend. That was Dan Lamont. This quartet of men agreed right off the bat that the whole matter had to be kept entirely under wraps they were planning to do this surgery though so keeping it. Secret was a really complicated proposal. They had to perform the procedure somewhere. Very very private that automatically meant not hospital and it had to be done entirely with incisions inside the president's mouth so that no external scars would give the truth away this also meant and grover. Cleveland was apparently adamant about this. They could not shave his moustache And while Cleveland's summer home in Massachusetts was introduced as a possible location for the surgery. It was pretty quickly dismissed because the press was often lurking nearby especially if they knew the president was there eventually. The president introduced a very novel possibility he could have the surgery onboard the Oneida a yacht owned by his friend Elias Benedict and that the two too often taken out for fishing trips. The use of a boat was of course super risky. But because Cleveland had been on that boat many times it would arouse zero suspicions for him to take a trip aboard it and while the doctors pressed for an immediate surgery. The president needed time to put some things in order before he could do it. This meeting took place on June twenty third and the President agreed that he would be ready on July. First in the meantime Dr Riley monitored his health and Dr Bryant put together a trustworthy surgical team. Dan Lamont made sure all the president's arrangements in Washington were taken care of and Grover Cleveland. We should mention was not a person who is in otherwise great health. When this whole plan was forming. He had a taste for really rich food which has caused him to develop gout and he drank quite a bit and he smoked That initial rough spot. That he felt was in the place for the end of his cigar usually sat in his mouse. He also likely had high blood pressure so anesthesia. Let alone going through a surgery and at this point. Remember like we're in the ether phase. we'll talk about that in a little bit and there. Was this very real possibility. That a more serious situation might reveal itself once that surgery was underway if the growth was more expansive than had been apparent upon examination. So this whole thing was a significant risk and the worst case scenario was that the president would die. Bryant immediately reached out to a colleague named Dr William Williams keen telling him that he wished to speak to him about a very important but private matter in a scene. That would be right at home in a spy thriller keen and Bryant a few days later on the deck of an empty fairy Bryant was totally straightforward and told keen about the president's need for surgery that the surgery had to happen in secret on a yacht and that he wanted keen to be on the surgical team keen was exactly the man you would want for this job a very well respected surgeon with an impeccable reputation who had been leading the medical field in the very new concept of brain surgery. Pain DIDN'T VOTE FOR GROVER CLEVELAND. But he had a great respect for the office and after a moment of thought on the matter he agreed to participate. There was as we said. Just a huge risk for the president but for a surgeon like keen at the top of his profession. There was also a great deal of risk if something went wrong his reputation which had been built over years of work and study would probably just crumble around him. Bryant recruited additional surgeons to be part of the Secret Presidential Surgery Team Dr Edward Janeway. Who is a professor of surgery at Bellevue Hospital? Medical College Dentists Doctor Ferdinand Hasbrouck who had an advanced knowledge of anesthesia as it existed at the time and then Brian Assistant Dr John Erdman. The plan was that Bryant would be the lead surgeon with keen and Erdman assisting Dr Hasbrouck would handle any tooth extractions that would need to be performed and would also manage anesthesia. Along with Dr O'Reilly and Dr Janeway would be in charge of monitoring the patient throughout Bryant also made all preparations for the yacht to be ready for this mission. The yacht had a saloon and it was decided that it would be transformed into an operating room. The furniture was removed and the space was disinfected at share was brought in for the president to sit in throughout the procedure special equipment and deliveries were explained away by Dr Bryant to the ship's crew. They were told. The president was going to have a tooth extraction on board and because the crew were accustomed to the president both being there and needing various special arrangements. They seem to accept this explanation. So coming up we're GONNA talk about the surgery itself and we'll get into that after we. I take a quick break in here from the sponsors keeps stuff..

"The Statue of Liberty has become such a legendary representation of New York City and America itself. It's hard to imagine a time before it found a place in the skyline it all began in the eighteen sixties when French poet and Anti Slavery activist Eduard elaborate proposed the idea of a post civil war commemoration of America's America's newfound freedoms and democracy he believed France should give a great monument a gift to the United States to celebrate both the unions victory in the civil war and and the abolition of slavery the idea resonated with a young French sculptor named Frederick August Bartholdi who'd been experimenting with large-scale Works Bartholdi started hearted drafting designs and the original goal was to complete the ambitious artistic endeavor by eighteen seventy six to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence The statue that she was set to represent the goodwill between America and France.

Bartholdi recruited did an experienced engineer to help troubleshoot structural issues with the massive sculpture enter Alexander Gustave Eiffel the man responsible for another internationally recognized architectural wonder the Eiffel Tower together with Bartholdi. I will help designed the four hundred and fifty thousand pound structure.

Oh projected debut the statue of Liberty became an official New York City icon and President Grover Cleveland oversaw the official dedication ceremony on October twenty eighth of eighteen eighty six fix lady liberty herself has a full and proper name the Statue of Liberty enlightening the world. The statue's face was apparently inspired by the the face of Berkeley's mother made from iron steel and three hundred layers of hand hammered copper weighing thirty tons. Lady Liberty Herself stands approximately one hundred and eleven feet. That's thirty four meters tall. She reaches an astounding three hundred and five feet or ninety three meters. If you take her pedestal and torch into account that's the equivalent height of a twenty two story building the copper coating her is three thirty seconds of an inch thick or about two point five millimeters which happens to be the same thickness missile to American pennies placed together while the internal structure is comprised of cast iron and stainless steel as for her signature Green Hue.

She's holding a tablet in her left hand end inscribed with the date July four seventeen seventy six the date of American independence written in Roman numerals and that giant torch in her right hand. It's meant to represent represents enlightenment a fitting accessory for liberty enlightening the world as for the Lazarus poem some history experts like Robert j McNamara believe if that while Bartholdi had originally envisioned lady liberty as a symbol of America exerting its own freedom the new colossus represented America as a refuge for oppressed people seeking liberty and an understanding by people born as American citizens that had we been born elsewhere. We might be similarly seeking liberty from oppression and suffering while there may be countless interpretations dissections and Miss Readings of Lady Liberty's many possible meanings one thing is for sure.
