Houston i is doing. And we'll be doing in the coming months well it it was This year's been a lot of change for a lot of people pretty much. Everybody and many many industries maybe none more than the travel live events and tourism business Once march hit we had to really really React in a different way Than what our plans. Our plans completely got thrown out the window. We were looking for a record year for tourism for twenty twenty or conventions. We had a great convention calendar In once it became clear over time that that wasn't gonna happen. We had to shift immediately to You know we pulled our domestic and international advertising. We shifted to community support. We shifted to things like stations To be able to put people eventually back in in hotels But the impacts for the hospitality community and anyone in the live event. Business has been Extreme houston i operates. The george brown convention center avenida houston jones hall worthy miller outdoor theatre among other venues.

Clients is We're seeing shift from q one and q two two major conventions that have moved back into q. Three possibly q four. We're not seeing as many outhouse cancellations which is good news. I think that the vaccine news. is Is the light at the end of the tunnel will see how it's ultimately distributed and brought to scale Hopefully that will be over the first six months of twenty twenty one But but some green shoots as we see them as you know for example Offshore technology conference otc move from may back to august and we'll see some additional shifts of some major conventions that will move back into into q three and q four so after july. first we have seen No cancellations related to covid On our calendar so the second half of the year could be A busy convention year.

New Gal took his army to the provincial capital of Guanajuato when they arrived the provincial governor refused to surrender despite most of the inhabitants supporting the rebels. The city defenders barricaded themselves inside a fortified structure firing on the revolutionaries during the course of the battle battle over two thousand. Miguel soldiers were killed eventually. The Gates were breached and the defenders were massacred including Krio elites. This moment is often compared to the storming of the best deal. Taking Guanajuato wasn't nearly important symbolically but actor. Miguel was able to seize vast amounts of gold and start an industrial base that included a foundry and a mint within two weeks. Meeks Miguel had gone from clandestine. Conspirator to conquer a Mexican province a radical shift in his position must have been jarring but knowing Miguel Santiago it must have also been invigorating with the revolution underway. Miguel soon learned that the the Spanish army wasn't the only institution he was battling. The Catholic Church decided to throw its hat into the fight to on October tenth and the inquisition filed a report denouncing. Miguel accusing him of heresy and declaring war against the church and his country. He was ordered to appear ear before a tribunal or face excommunication. Miguel found these accusations amusing with a revolution to lead. He did not appear before a tribunal instead. Miguel lead his rebel army through town.

Historians don't really know why he did at this some believe. He determined that he didn't have enough munitions to successfully take the enormous city others believed that he had simply seen enough bloodshed. He knew what his army would do to the people of Mexico City and he couldn't have any more innocent blood on his hands. Regardless of the reason the decision proved to be a terrible mistake on November seventh the retreating army was attacked by the Spanish thousands of Miguel's men died within a few weeks many of the towns that Miguel had conquered had been retaken by the royalists. Thousands of civilians were slaughtered for collaborating with the rebels. After this failure the revolutionary leaders did not let me Gail continue as military commander the consequences of the retreat. Prove that he wasn't capable of leading an army humbled. Miguel accepted their decision. His intellectual arrogance arrogance had led him to believe that reading about war meant he could competently command. An army reality had proven otherwise he would continue. Can you to serve the revolution. But this time playing his intellectual strengths on despite their defeat the rebellion was still going on throughout the country three times a newspaper in Guadalajara and made several political proclamations including land reform for the natives battle loss aside. He still believed that. The revolution could succeed. Miguel also sent an ambassador to the United States to ask for their help. He believed that they would be sympathetic. To the Mexican revolutionary cause given their own recent fight against European colonialism however the envoy was captured and died in royalist custody. The New Year would bring more defeats. Aw Large royalist army attacked Guadalajara in mid January of eighteen eleven despite the Revolutionary Army of eighty thousand vastly outnumbering. The royalist's six.

Within two days they routed the revolutionary army from Guadalajara despite the defeat it may google remained defiant when a royalist general offered him harden. He flatly refused it to him. Pardons were for criminal's not patriots. However a defiant spirit would not be enough at this stage? They needed help.

One by one the conspirators spiritus including a yesterday were tried and executed however Miguel's case was a little more complicated as the priest. He couldn't be executed by a military court he would need to be defrocked making him a civilian and no longer under the penal jurisdiction of the church only then could his sentence be carried out in order to expedite this process. They found a local bishop willing to do the defrocking considering during the church had been building. Its own case against Miguel for some time. It wasn't difficult. On June nineteenth eighteen eleven miguel was publicly. stripped of his robes lesser man would have succumbed to shame but the priests of Dolores I 's maintained his dignity.

"Eventually moved into theology as well in seventeen seventy eight while still teaching twenty five year old. Miguel became ordained as priests in the Catholic Church. Years of studying theology had finally led to this moment and he was able to share the honor with his older brother. Jose Joaquin who also became ordained around the same time despite the new ordination. Miguel continued his role as educator in seventeen eighty seven at thirty four years old called. Miguel was appointed treasurer of the college. He clearly excelled in this role because by seventeen ninety one he became rector of the entire school almost almost immediately. Miguel began instituting radical reforms in the textbooks and curricula he had chafed at the Orthodoxy of how theology the and philosophy were taught at the college even as a student Neagle often questioned the fundamental doctrine taught by the church now that he was in a position of power he was able to change things up by this time the enlightenment was well underway in Europe radical new ideas. It's like liberty reason religious tolerance and a rejection of absolute monarchy were gaining popularity. A brave new intellectual world was being born and Miguel wanted to be a part of it. However these philosophies were suppressed in Spain and its colonies radical radical thought like the jesuits before was a threat to the Spanish crown? He had to read these works in secret. Many of them in French. Instead of his native Spanish Russo in particular was a major influence on Miguel his ideas about democracy and the natural rights of man spoke to the new rector especially in regard to the mistreatment of the natives and Mestizos Miguel's reforms of the curriculum can be interpreted as his first the True Revolutionary Act. He wanted to free the minds of the next generation and open them up to new ways of thinking regardless of what the government Dan Church had ordered unfortunately for him his time as rector was not long disgruntled colleagues and local officials denounced him for his reforms warms and demanded that he be removed seeing the writing on the wall. Miguel resigned as rector in seventeen ninety two but if the forced resignation nation was meant to silence the increasingly vocal Miguel. It didn't work his calls for radical change would only get louder and and soon he would have an army of followers that his side coming up.

Now back to the story. Miguel Hidalgo had spent the better part of his first forty years. In academia a gifted intellectual he was drawn to the radical ideas is of the enlightenment when he became rector at Santiago Loss Obispo he changed the curriculum to reflect those ideas. The move ultimately led to his forced resignation in seventeen ninety two a year after the resignation forty year old. Miguel Hidalgo was sent by the Church to work at the Sun Valley Bay parish given his record of disagreeing with church teachings. It might be difficult to reconcile his decision to remain the clergy however considering the Church's influence in government it's possible that he viewed the priesthood as one of his better options to help the downtrodden downtrodden especially the natives and the Mestizo whatever his reason he remained in the priesthood and despite the best efforts by the church to silence him. Miguel continued his subversive intellectual activities. In fact being in a small town and further away from the watchful eye of church church offices and via delayed may have emboldened him to push boundaries even further while serving as the priest in San Felipe the Bay Miguel broke his vow of chastity. He began having several affairs. And even fathered a number of illegitimate children. He also continued. Can you to read band. Philosophical Works and openly debated some of the fundamental tenets of Catholicism. This included controversial topics. Like Komo weather Jesus's mother. Mary was a virgin or whether Saint Francis had truly received the stigmata the same wounds Jesus received on the Cross. It wasn't just on matters of theology that Miguel would develop controversial opinions. He also denounced kings as tyrants inspired hired by the recent revolutions in the United States and France. The French Revolution held great sway over Miguel so much so that his parish was dubbed the Little France Miguel's Assistant Garcia Dakota Kedah was an intellectual kindred spirit the two men would spend their days discussing such radical ideas however Miguel's lack of discretion eventually caught up with him. His heretical ideas caught the attention. Of A friar named Manuel Estrada hearing Miguel's heresy and seeing his womanizing Estrada reported him to the Holy Office in by the lead also known as the inquisition. Evidently Miguel did not expect the new Spanish inquisition. The council was responsible for investigating heresy and crimes against the church and Miguel had committed many of those. The Holy Office did a thorough investigation of the allegations against Miguel and although they were able to find several witnesses they ultimately decided not to punish punish him. What helped me Gaels case was that Estrada was known for exaggeration? And many of the witnesses. They had called contradicted themselves. Miguel it was also respected in the region and prosecuting him would have potentially created more problems. Among the people facing the inquisition forced Miguel to realize is that he had pushed his luck. He recanted his heretical beliefs. Which helped them close the investigation against him in eighteen? O One two years later at the age of fifty Miguel was reassigned to the parish and Dolores almost two hundred miles from Mexico City and the reasons reasons for the move were tragic Miguel's older brother. Jose Joaquin died that year leaving the position of parish priest vacant. Miguel move to Dolores with several family members including four of his illegitimate children and their two mothers. Dolores was substantially larger larger than SAN belly. Pay and with that. Larger population came more diversity. People from every racial group and economic class lived in the town of fifteen thousand and Miguel interacted with all of them he brought them together at his home hosting discussions and cultural evenings US natives mosquitoes and does all found themselves under the same roof. They discussed the issues of the day and watched rudimentary performances. This is a French plays translated by Gill in Dolores. neagle found a new group of people to preach his radical ideas too and in time it too became known as little France. But unlike in San Felipe say he wouldn't simply rebel on the fringes of society and academia he was going need to take his revolutionary ideas to the next level. Miguel had long been sympathetic to the plight of natives in Mexico but now he was going to do something about it. He began to develop local industries into Laura as many of which were banned by the Spanish government. The the very first industry he started was planting mulberry bushes to farm silkworms this funnily enough was expressly forbidden. As New Spain was expected to buy silk from the mother country that was just the beginning. Miguel cultivated forbidden vineyards established leather. Tannery a blacksmith and workshops for creating silk pottery and bricks the local economy boomed the products made by the natives developed reputation not only for their quality but for their lower prices compared to the ones imported from Spain. Miguel's kindness and help made him a local hero. Oh especially among the native population. After decades of coming up against resistance from the church he was finally making a difference for the people he wanted wanted to see freed however this joy was not to last in eighteen o seven colonial officials were tipped off and sent a detachment of soldiers to Dolores. When they arrived they destroyed the beloved vineyards and mulberries to Miguel Gal? The government policies made no sense.

The Spanish colonial government had had imposed an unfair racial caste system that economically exploited those not born in Spain taking Mexico.

"To them for real. Well, maybe some believe the closest Frank came to riding lawn distance races was when he worked for Ringling Brothers circus handling their horses. Still others believe that perhaps Frank did everything he wrote about we just don't have any documentation to prove it. And that's certainly possible. There are countless stories throughout history that haven't been documented there's no way that we can know about them after all we can't prove something we can't prove right. As for Frank Hopkins. Probably the biggest gaping hole that I found in the documentation for his stories had to do with all of the long writing races. He claimed to have been a part of you see Frank's claims span over four hundred races to be more. Specific those races include one in England three in Germany, another three in India, four in Italy. Another four in Russia yet another four in Singapore. Five in France, eleven in Mexico, fourteen in Mongolia, thirty eight in Japan, sixty eight in Argentina and last, but certainly not least a whopping two hundred and eighty nine races in the United States that's four hundred and forty four total races. If you're accounting for all that time spent racing horses, the historians and researchers who have spent years digging into the validity of France claims have found very little to absolutely no proof for the racist happening with it. Frank. Was ever involved in them? In fact, for someone who claimed to have made a career riding horses over long distances and winning high profile races. You'd think they would be at least one photograph of Frank sitting in the saddle of horse. But there's not we do have photos of Frank just not riding a horse during one of his many long distance races. He claimed to have one. And if we've learned anything from the internet about people who like to make outlandish claims picks or it didn't happen. this episode of based on a true story was written and produced by me, the NFL if you one of their more about the real frontier Hopkins, you should check out the book simply called Hidalgo. It's a collection of francs writings, but there was a team of historians and experts who have gone through the book and pointed out, the accuracy, or maybe I should say the inaccuracy of the claims that Frank is making for example, they do a great job of explaining how Frank stories have captivated great journalists and authors and convince them for some reason to publish the stories without any proof, then it was really the movie that we're talking about today Hidalgo that brought a new wave of attention to the legends of frontier Hopkins.

"Is that Frank was there? He was not at wounded knee on that December day now, it is true that Frank claimed he was there like the movie shows, but historians haven't been able to find any proof tobacco up the claims that Frank made that he was at wounded knee when the massacre took place. We have documentation from the events including stories from the Indians who managed to survive the horrible event. But none of them mentioned Frank being there. Back in the movies timeline. We see some text on screen that tells us we're eight months after did knee, and we're at buffalo bill's wild west show. We hear J K Simmons version of buffalo Bill announcing that the proud seventh was awarded twenty-seven congressional medals at a place called wounded knee. What the movie is referring to here as the proud seventh is, of course, the seventh cavalry as we just learned. It is true that the US troops who were involved in the wounded knee massacre were the seventh cavalry regiment, as for the twenty seven medals. However that numbers a little bit off some sources that I found said that there were twenty medals of honor given out while the official US army website has eighteen men listed receiving the award for a bit of comparison. A total of seven men in the seventh cavalry regiment, earned a medal of honor for the Vietnam war. Admittedly, the medal of honor was awarded more liberally in the late nineteenth century. But still that number seems quite high for something that many historians considered to be a one sided engagement the number of medals given for wounded knee. In other words, it was not a battle. It was a massacre. In the movie we see Frank performing as one of the heroes of wounded knee for buffalo bill's wild west show. He's obviously not too happy about the role that he's playing as evidenced by how drunk he seems to be all the time. But he plays it. Nonetheless. It's true that working for buffalo bill's wild west show was another claim of Franks. However, there's also no documentation to prove it ever happened. Dr Judy Winchester was the curator of the buffalo Bill historical center in Cody Wyoming, as the movie was being made in two thousand three interview with these Saudi based newspaper Arab news. She explained quote, we were unable to find any Frank t Hopkins in our database of known cast members, acquaintances employees or friends of Colonel Cody and quote. Back in the movie. It's during one of these shows that we see Vigo Mortenson version of Frank at approached by an Arabian man, named Z's. He's played by Adam Alexi mall, and along with his British colleague the to convince Frank to take on a new challenge. They talk about an amazing race called the ocean of fire. According to the pair this is a race. That's taken place every year for more than a thousand years. It's a three thousand mile race across the Rabian desert along the Persian Gulf and Iraq across the sands of Syria to Damascus Frank, of course, decides to take the dog go on this the ultimate long distance race. Now, I don't want to be the cloud that rain on this parade. But none of that is true. Do you? Remember the year that we saw in the movie earlier say t ninety guess what? Iraq didn't exist in eighteen ninety the country of Iraq. That were familiar with today was formed in nineteen nineteen the lanes that make up the modern day country of Iraq was owned by the Ottoman empire in eighteen ninety an empire whose demise began in nineteen eighteen but officially didn't collapse until nineteen twenty two. So there's no way this thousand year old race could have included Iraq like the movie claims. But what if we gave the movie the benefit of the doubt? And just assume that they're letting us know about the lands were familiar with now as Iraq after all it's easier to say Iraq to give us an idea of where they're talking about. Then to explain everything I just did about the fall of the Ottoman empire..

"Glass who we learned about in the revenue are mostly believed. Even if there wasn't anyone around to document or verify it. But when it comes to Frank t Hopkins things get a little more difficult because you'd think we would have scores of documented proofs about the things he claimed to have done. But we don't for example. Frank wrote stories about him being the teacher to the infamous Billy the kid. He said he hung out with teddy Roosevelt before he was the president of the United States and that he served as inspiration for the legendary western authors, AIn gray. He even said, he was a secret agent, plenty more. But as it turns out, those are more likely than not nothing more than tall tales. We don't even really know when Frank t Hopkins was born he claimed to have been born in eighteen sixty five and fort, Laramie, Wyoming, even conflicted himself a little bit by claiming to different locations whether to different distances from fort Laramie in his own stories, however historians have struggled finding any documentation to prove. That's where he was born. Horse on the other hand. That's not too surprising. It's not like we have proof of everyone birthdates in the eighteen hundreds especially in remote towns like fort, Laramie forbid of context in two thousand ten there were two hundred and thirty people living in fort, Laramie. Native sixties fort Laramie was little more than a station for the pony express. So even though we don't know when he was born we do know Frank t Hopkins existed, obviously he was born right going back to the movie the next major plot point has Vigo Mortenson version of Frank headed to wounded knee. It's here that the movie tells us the year for the first time we see text that says we're at wounded knee creek under summer twenty ninth. Eighteen ninety Frank is a dispatch rider. He's taking a message that we saw handed to him in the opening sequence to the commander there at wounded knee. For some reason, though, he doesn't take it to the commander. He said hands it to a soldier, then must run all the way across the camp to deliver it maybe the purpose of that is just so we can hear the voice over letting us know what's inside the message. And the message is to major wit side of the seventh cavalry it says that general miles is ordering a. Solution to the Sioux uprising, he's ordered to disarm the Indians at once. And if they fight subdue them. Then as Frank leaves the camp, we see one of Indians carrying a rifle one of the US cavalry. Soldiers tells him to give up his gun. An elderly tribesmen comes by saying that black Coyote is death. He can't hear your orders. A struggle ensues. New gun goes off. Then all hell breaks. Loose says the soldiers opened fire on the Indians. That is true. Probably what the movie is showing here is what referred to as the battle of wounded knee. But some have debated that name saying, it wasn't a battle at all. It's the wounded knee massacre. We don't know for sure how the bloodshed started. But there is a version of the story that says it happened just like the movie shows the Lakota tribe, which is one of the three major divisions of Sioux tribes was at wounded knee when the seventh US cavalry tried to disarm them. One of the tribesman named black coachee was deaf. And didn't want to give up his rifle in the scuffle gun went off. And the cavalry started shooting the Lakota 's tried to fight back, but most of them have been disarmed and insured. They didn't really have that many guns to begin with on the US side. There were four hundred ninety men. Twenty five killed thirty nine were injured and six of them to come to their wounds later on for the Lakota. There were one hundred twenty men who fought we don't have exact. But some estimates say ninety of those warriors were killed along with another two hundred women and children slaughtered. Today. The wounded massacre stands as the largest domestic massacre in US history and the movie got the day. Correct. It was on December twenty ninth. Eighteen ninety for the purposes of our story today, though, what's not true about this?.

"We see trees son and snow covered field then their shots of cold brisk water, covered by is when we hear a whistle. We see the head of beautiful Brown and white Mustang. That's when we see Vigo Morton's character Frank t Hopkins, enter the movie for the first time as he pets, the horse that the movie is named after and the next scene. We get a bit of context for what's happening as we see Frank writing Hidalgo and catching up to another writer, the other man mentioned something to the effect of I didn't ride eleven hundred miles to come in second place, the races on and of course, Frank wins. After this. We see the text on screen that we're familiar with in a little bit of a different version. It says based on the life of Frank t Hopkins. The movie doesn't give us any sort of indication of what race this might be that we're seeing and unfortunately, it's not something we can really figure out by looking at it from history. And this is where the first major controversy about this film begins. You see even though the movie says it's based on the life of Frank t Hopkins. There's a lot of people who would disagree with that statement, perhaps a more accurate statement would be that it's based on the stories Frank t Hopkins told about his own life on one hand. This isn't really anything new. We hear amazing stories all the time that make their way to the big screen. But for the most part those stories have been able to be verified in some way through accounts other than the word of the one who claimed they happened. Sure. Some people like t e Lawrence whose name became famous by the film, Lawrence of Arabia might have embellished their story a bit, but we can verify a lot of it through documentation, even stories like, Hugh..
