"To you by twin spires and please walk on our next guest who's a handicapper and television analyst at Oakland park their season in full swing right now very happy to welcome in Nancy holt. To the show, Nancy, how are you? I am great. Thanks so much for having me on. You know, it was funny. We were talking before it came out. It said Paul was out golfing. I thought I thought it was a little chilly in the Midwest right now. Well, it is, but today it is absolutely gorgeous sun shining and it is in the high 50s. So it's a rare occurrence, but you know what? You got to take it when you can get it. You know what it was so funny. We had a little bit of a I mean by Tampa standards. We had a bit of a cold spell and you know they had the highs were in the mid 50s the last couple days and in the morning it was like 38 or 39 and a trainer came up to us at work as we were walking out. He said, are we going to run tomorrow? My boss looked at him. She goes, the high is 55, like are we gonna run tomorrow? What are you talking about? It's kind of funny to see people's reaction to the cold down here. You know, being a born and raised seattleite, you know, 50 and 60 in January. That's amazing to me. So there's different world down here though. Yeah, my brother's writing at Tampa. My brother from another mother, as I call him. And I kind of was able to have my Indiana family who I call and my brother. My brother from another mother. Meet my outside of racing family. And they went to the races at Tampa, this past Saturday, and they got to meet for the first time and they are my football affiliation family and they took a picture together. I'll have to send that to you and he is head of player development for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and it looks like remember the movie twins with you. Yeah, it kind of looks like that because he's he was center for many years in the NFL and it is probably one of the funniest pictures I think I've ever seen. So yeah, of Rocco standing next to this former NFL player and it's yeah. It's funny, it's funny because Rocco by jockey standards is maybe a little shorter than average and you know he and I knew each other from Portland when he was getting started and so the first actually I think it was the first week at Tampa I ran into him and we took a picture together and somebody somebody replied they go, you are either extremely tall or he's extremely sure I said, it's kind of a combination of both. And he comes up to like my belly button. It's kinda funny. Good old Rocco. Good kid. Oh, the best. Yeah, it's actually really fun to kind of get to see him again just because he was such a breath of fresh air in the northwest and I know he went through some struggles and he's kind of rebounded and really had this really good year or so now, and so glad to see him keeping the momentum going down. Do you want to talk some Oakland though? Obviously, big weekend in the books for you guys. The southwest states, but I want to start with the Martha Washington, because it seemed like when Saturday was done, most of the Oakland buzz I heard was about the southwest about how good secret oath was. That was something. Yeah, yeah. She and the Martha Washington was just so impressive. I think she might have been able to win the southwest if she was in there. And you know, trading by dewayne Lucas, he, he's kind of been really, really good about running the Phillies with the boys. You know, we remember, I think it was maybe 84 that he won the Arkansas Derby with a Philly and that was althea. So, you know, he's kind of been synonymous. So don't worry about it. He's been, you know, I actually went back to the barn yesterday and checked on her and just, you know, to congratulate her and just to say how impressive she was, she scored that by 7 and a quarter list and earned an 88 buyer for her efforts and it was her first stakes win. Unfortunately, coach was not there in attendance. He was in Louisville, filming a documentary for a cowboy channel. So is going to be back in Arkansas sooner rather than later. But, you know, some people say, well, didn't really beat a field of much, but the way she beat that field was the way she should have. So I wouldn't be surprised if right now she is an early contender a favorite contender for the Kentucky oaks because I tell you what Jason, the way she did it was well within herself. And if you watch the replay down the backside, it looks like she and Luis Contreras were having a bare wrestling match because she was fighting Luis all the way down the backside. She wanted to go. And I don't know how Louise won that war, but as soon as they hit the top of the lane, she's like, all right, buddy. It's my turn now. Let me go. But she was so impressive..

"Park southwest stakes as well as Gulfstream's Pegasus World Cup. You get a $40 bonus just like that. Now I'm interested to see what they do with this day because you were supposed to have to bet a $100 each on the southwest, the Pegasus and the toboggan and now since the toboggan is not taking place tomorrow, don't know exactly what's going on, but I think you still get the $40 bonus. So a great stuff going on from our fence at 9 or bets. Well, as you mentioned, Dave, we've got great racing around the country, both tomorrow and Sunday. So we're going to start it off in Hot Springs, Arkansas. They've got three big stakes on the Saturday card starting with race four on their card tomorrow. Goes about two 32 Eastern Time. It's the $200,000 Martha Washington for the three year old Phillies going a mile in a 16th, just a short field of 6 here, Dave, but there are three of them that are going to get a lot of action at the windows. Como square optionality in secret oath. Yeah, this is a great race for me from a betting perspective because two of those three are tosses. That doesn't mean that secret oath can't win, but dewayne Lucas is three for a 115 in stakes races over the last 5 years hasn't won once since 2018 and I'm tossing secret oath who very much from a fig standpoint and running lines looks possible maybe even likely in here. I just can't bet into those stats that are really hard against the Hall of Famer, the 86 year old trainer. Optionality for Steve asked me to three consecutive wins at Indiana grand Zia and Remington park. I think in against better today at Oakland park need to prove it to me not taking a short price there. Como square makes plenty of sense for Brad Cox, but this is a stretch out. We just don't know the figs are not huge. I will certainly be playing como park, but my selection is on the rail, hyper sport 8 to one in the morning line looks like the only horse with speed to me, I expect to go out quickly. Sort of like last time, but not quite as quick and I don't think is going to get pressed like he did or like she did last time out and I think hyper sport can survive on the rail wire to wire. Much better price on HyperSport tomorrow than once you got last time out and the allowance race and her win two starts back with certainly put her right there. I'm going with number three como square being by into mischief out of a congrats smear. I don't think the scratch out to a mile in the 16th is a gigantic ask. I like what I've seen from her thus far. And I also like the fact that John Velasquez is getting a board for the first time. So we're both picking against the two favorites on the morning line, optionality and secret oath. I'm going with como square Dave goes with hyper sport. In the Martha Washington, a points qualifying race on the road to the Kentucky yolks, ten valuable points to the winner of the race. Moving ahead to race 9 on tomorrow's card at Oakland park in the 9th race is a good one. It's the three quarter $1 million grade three Southwest stakes. These are three year olds going to go a mile in a 16th and a full field of 12 set to go to post Dave and you've got a Californian Vader in the Bob Baffert train new grains going to try to win it from a tough post. Yeah, I think this is a very competitive race, but other than new Grange, I couldn't find anyone that really stood out. Dash attack number two and barber road number 8 ran against each other in the slop at oak on the 1st of January and both of them ran pretty good races dash attack was a two length winner at 8 to one barber square finished second Barbara square had some kind of difficulty within that trip. I think both of them are completely viable and here. But let's be honest, this is what Bob Baffert does. He takes the horses from California. He brings him the Oakland he's had 17 Derby horses prep and win since 2010 at Oakland park and newgrange looks the part. One as a 5 to two second choice at del mar first time out, came back in the grade three sham and again wasn't bet aggressively about 7 to two or three to one actually. And one rather easily, I thought the field was solid, if not spectacular that day, newgrange, a $125,000 son of violence, and I think he's the most likely winner in here. Well, I don't disagree that he's one of the ones that can win. I disagree with the fact that I don't think the field that he beat in the sham was very good at all. It was a short field. I didn't think the favorite Rockefeller was that much going in. And new greens just got out in front of the field set a slow pace and kept going. Now maybe he's just better than that field and maybe he's significantly better than what I thought was a mediocre field. He's very logical. I'm going to try a price with number 5 Costa terrace for Steve asthma. And Thiago Pereira, coming out, his last time we saw him was in the grade one breeders futurity at keeneland, and I thought he ran a better than looked 5th in the race. He was just nowhere in the early going. Don't know why he was so far back in that race, but he passed more than half of the field and kind of finished a non menacing 5th, but still a pretty good effort. I think in defeat. And to be honest, I think the field he faced in that breeders futurity is easily as good if not better than the one he's going to see tomorrow in the southwest. Biggest question for me is will he fire his best shot, first start off the layoff. It's not something that Steve asks that Steve asks and really fires at. His overall percentages are somewhere in the 1820 22%, but these extended layoff types are closer to 15%. So you don't always get their best effort first off the break for this. I'm hoping that happens tomorrow though with coast to Terra because I think that if he sits a closer trip, which he did in his first two starts, he's going to be a major player at a nice price. Coast to Terra for me in the southwest, a points race ten points to the winner as far as on the road to The Kentucky Derby this year. Race ten tomorrow at Oakland park is the $150,000 king cotton. It's a sprint 6 furlongs there on the Hot Springs. Oval good field of 9 going to post, and another try for Nashville. Boy, when he was good, he was great, Dave, but he's been disappointing in his last two starts..

"It was so so scary thinking about it just reminds me of how powerful the imagination truly because i was so scared and the night popped into my head instantly when we started talking about ghost stories. Obviously i survived. But as i was researching this case my sources included seattle tears dot com. You know who knows really what happened at that school. you know. there's an almost like it doesn't matter because your imagination like you said that is the biggest culprit and all this right so given what we know of insane asylums in the twentieth century. It would be more likely than unlikely that these vulnerable young girls labeled as delinquents very likely could have been subjected to at the very least cruelty and this wasn't an insane asylum so i don't know how it got that name of being an insane asylum. You know over the years essentially after over a decade of complaints about vandalism animal sacrifices and other strange goings on the city council finally voted to demolish the historic buildings and turn the site into a park in one thousand nine hundred nine today. Martha washington park is just a really sweet little park and the only remnants that the school even existed where the trees that were planted in the nineteen twenties and then a very distinctive archway. What about that. Madryn a tree with staircase in the tunnel. Well i don't know about you. I could tell gives ready to go. I don't know. I mean there's a picture of a tree that that we can include for the website but i don't know if that's illiterate if that's the tree so remembering this. Halloween night spent so many years ago. You kinda got me curious about why people like go stories. And i found this story and cnn that gave a few examples of why and it's supposed to make you feel closer to the people you're with and i think that's absolutely true looking back. Had i been interested in that guy. You know i probably would have been more likely to go inside. Yeah i definitely think our tour guide was trying to get himself and his friend closer to me and my friend. The experience had i been game. That night would have been an adolescent thrill being thrust in close proximity to a guy that i thought was cute holding each other close for protection from ghosts. All around us you know the stakes felt so high and then getting to ride that rush of adrenaline and that completely safe but contrived moment like yeah great. I wish i would have had that experience. It'd probably the same reason. I love haunted houses. The sakonnet like the tour. Yeah didn't differentiate like fake haunted house. Well the ones that are like you know you pay money to go and say this was like a different kind of scary because you're not supposed to be there. Yeah and you don't know if it's true or not and i once went on a tour of the queen. Mary at halloween time. Which is supposedly haunted. Bloody mary like the ship. Oh that was. It was off the coast of california at the time. i believe. it's still there but it is a really really old ship. It's a historic ship. Titanic era And we did a ghost tour of the queen. Mary and let me tell you. You have creeks and groans of ship behind the storytelling of of all the ghostly things that happened man. But there's something even more when you're at a place that has this like crazy like i've been to really scary haunted houses and so yes definitely but i mean there's something even more kind of evil when you know that yono what actually went on this play. Yes possible these stories could be real right exactly so early. Some form of them. Another thing that i read in the cnn article was people. Love to listen until ghost stories and they appear in most cultures actually quote. There is a seneca. India goes story about a fire eating monster with no body only ahead who snake through the indian villages at night looking for small children to eat. This story was told to keep children from staying out late at night. Obviously i should have been listening to that. Goes story and not been there that night. But i mean it's true. We tell scary stories to kids to keep them quote unquote safe. And you don't go into that forest at night. You know you know what happens so many years ago to scrooge or the headless horseman. Or whatever and i think it is effective up to a point and like listening to true crime goes stories have happened to other people. We can hear them from the safety of a fire. Pit or a movie. It's controlled terror as you can get and then when the stories is over you get to return to your life unscathed and maybe you think your life isn't so bad after all at least you're still living exactly and go. Stories also gives us perspective in this goes story i think about the girls and what they potentially went through. I think about our responsibilities as storytellers on this podcast and why we always try to remember the victims first and foremost and i think the thing is is that that's powerful about the stories that we don't even know what's true or not if you go to history link like there's literally nothing there that indicates that any crime actually took place so the power of our imagination or rumor or gossip or whatever and truth like were there all these girls who were subjected to cruelty and violence and assaults and it's just never been reported on because sometimes history. You don't have anybody that comes forward to say yes osama bin and the sprinkle of truth makes all of the things that seems so outlandish like more plausible Yeah i mean. I totally remember that whole. I mean and i'm not like i love halloween. It's my favorite holiday. But i don't like being scared like that. Like i don't know i. It just was like you're looking at me. Like at some point if i go to a haunted house and i'm not scared i'm disappointed. You have not done your job. Oh my gosh well. Have you ever been to a haunted house that you haven't been scared at. Oh yeah oh really many many many okay. I laugh and makes people were working there early angry. I can totally do that. Do they really get angry. They get annoyed because they're worried. I'm ruining it for everybody else. Who's there so i try not to. I try to temper my laughter. What was the best haunted house. You've ever been okay. So i don't remember what it was called. When i lived in the phoenix area. There was this really big warehouse in the middle of the desert that they turned into a haunted warehouse and it was super popular. It was like fifty bucks a ticket to get in the reliance like down the block. It was actually really scary and it was really long like whoa through the whole warehouse. It was huge. But the scariest. Part for be was the birth canal. Oh my god. And i don't know if that's what it was intended to be but you walk through. It was like pink fabric. That was really dark but when you walk through it. I don't know if they had like air-blowers all around but it's sort of stuck to you as you were moving through it and you've got in front of you and people behind you and everybody's trying to sort of push their way through the birth canal. It was the birth. You know what it was called. But i can only imagine that that's what it would feel like to be going through the birth canal so we made it out the other side but there is something about being trapped where there were people in front of me and people behind me and the fabric closing in all around the to where. I couldn't move. I couldn't get out and it was almost like the feeling of. I'm feeling right now. As you're describing yet have suffocation feeling to where i was worried that at some point i wouldn't be able to breathe. I was able to breathe just fine but it was the fear of not being able to get out of not being able to breathe. That is the scariest. Thing that i've ever encountered. Well you know it's funny because as you were saying that i love. That's the kind of scare that i like. Like for example jaws. I think they did that. Most affected course. I've loved i loved lake. Just this idea of like that. Fear of you didn't know where it was in your own imagination and i think that's what captured that event of going to the mar. Martha washington school.

"Candles. Yes so loving this candle that my husband got me because he knows me so well. It is called true crimes and chill. It is infused with suspense according to the manufacturer. Gosh i love it so we are in the studio. It is completely dark and spooky and scary the perfect launch point for going back in time when i was fourteen years old when i went to the martha washington school for girls don't and this was not to go to school there. This was not to go to school at one time. The martha washington school for girls had been a grand five acre estate known as morningside on five hundred feet of lake washington waterfront in seattle. Just beautiful piece of land. According to history link a guy named judge. Smith sold the property to the seattle school district in nineteen twenty four the martha washington school for girls. Smith had been active on and off the bench as an advocate for troubled youth. The school built a classroom and dorm building in nineteen twenty one and added a dorm and a gymnasium. In one thousand nine thirty and the school kept the morningside greenhouse vote house and caretaker's residence and the previous owner judge smith had also built. What sounds like a hollow stairway to an enormous madryn a tree on the property. Okay so just. The description of this place is is perfect for a ghost. But i'm surprised like the seattle school district setting up a dorm for students. A yeah so it was basically a reform school in the had to live there for what would be considered delinquent. Girls is what they what it was referred to as it would eventually become infamous as the martha washington school for the insane girls known as one of the most haunted places in seattle. Now according to jeff dwyer's book ghost hunters guide to seattle and puget sound quote residents in the area. Tell the story of a caretaker of the property who went on a crazed killing spree taking the lives of several girls and two staff members. Now a quick google query didn't return any accredited source for these allegations or other accounts involving the many rumors of violence committed by both the students and staff including multiple suicides murders and sexual assault. But you could completely see how that would happen. I mean you've got kids who are vulnerable. Who are on this campus. It's probably a closed campus where they can't get away. Yeah so in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. When i visited the school had long been closed down and boarded up. I was fourteen years old. And it was halloween night and i can still hear the slightly older boy in the car on our way recounting the ghostly history of the place. Because i didn't know anything about it. He didn't have a flashlight beaming under his chin. But let's just say. I can still feel my eyes bulging out. It was just about the witching hour when we pulled into this neighborhood and parked. I shrank inside and my heartbeats thumped into my throat when we climbed out of the car and he kept on telling more of the tail quote. Mad girls your age were taken there and tortured locked away in the sane asylum. They were experimented on. We're so hopeless. They took their own lives. So as we walked down this kind of darkened path. On the side of this monolithic type brick building. He was saying that the school was shut down in nineteen seventy one and it was boarded up and abandoned and became the site of a satanic colt who actually performed animal sacrifices and rituals i write it just kept adding to it as we were going down there i was just hitting all the not lily is and it was so dark and scary. I was about to jump out of my skin. And i was at an age where i would have rather been trick or treating but i desperately wanted to act cool too. But i was scared. Shitless the biggest yellowish orange harvest moon lit our way on this side of the ghostly row of boarded up windows. My mind's eye just conjuring the plot of every horror story involving a reform school for troubled girls in the twentieth century. According to the seattle schools dot org link quote the district assumed responsibility for providing academic instruction at this protestant institution after it opened in nineteen twenty two. The girls were words of the juvenile court who exceeded the sixteen year old age limit or work quote misfits in the public schools. Usually minimum commitment of one year was required. So they were there. They were stuck. They were stuck. Parents and relatives were allowed to visit every other sunday from two to four pm so they were basically on their own at that school weeks without even seeing anybody at an adult that you know of right so as we looked for a place of entry into this boarded up school our sixteen year old tour guide continued in a hush whisper when we get inside. Don't be surprised if you hear footsteps. That aren't ours. It'll be pitch black but you can feel the spirit surround you ghost of the girls whose souls won't rest because of what happened to them and so when we got to the boarded up window that had clearly been pried open long ago i was just wondering wasn't one of the satan is that we're in there. I took one peek inside. And i just backed away and i was like. There's no way i'm going in there. Of course. I was hoping against all hope that everyone else would miraculously agree with me and we would just sprint for the car and we stood there for a few minutes as my friend tried her best to talk me into going inside i will say her guy was much cuter than mine. Wanted to follow him in. Yeah yeah right. so i wasn't budging though but before they all shimmied one at a time through that partially boarded up window. The guy said they say that adults who have abused girls will feel a chill too. They're very bones because the caretaker had murdered a girl and hung her from a madryn a tree on the property. That's that tree that apparently the previous owner had made a staircase yet adamant bizarre. Why would you do i. Don't you make under a guessing. It's like an underground stare. Clinton out to a tunnel or something. Yeah from the caretaker's home. I don't even know what the purpose i mean in history link. He did do that. But what that purposes in terms of where it had relevance in. His story is unclear to just to be creepy right just to be creepy. But don't be surprised if you see her ghost or screams especially from the trees and i said i am not going in there. I knew i was outing myself as a scaredy cat. Because i was what as i stood outside can remember hearing the wind whistling through the trees. Or was it. A faint scream. I had heard and it was like literally the longest ten minutes. I had to wait by myself. What's worse waiting outside by yourself near that. Madryn tree or going inside. I you know what. I don't need to stay. I don't know because it was so scary to be out there by myself at that huge moon. I just have that image and.

"On much more likely are copies that you'll see May throughout the 19th century. Ah, various quality No Sarah Knees studio in New York. He was sort of a competitive Currier and Ives. It's a very, very good work. It did a version of the Washington family. Also another version, a little bit different. Seated around the table. Washington's they're surrounded by, um by the customs grandchildren and Martha Martha Washington. Um But it's ah pose a little bit differently. Very, very nice. You can get them relatively cheaply for a couple of $100 for a nice, nice example. But to find a print of this painting. In the late 18th century is very, very difficult. The painting itself is at the National Gallery. It's a monumental work. It's really a big painted could be in the Capitol Rotunda. It is so majestic. It would. It would fill that you'd be a part of that space very, very beautifully on. Remember, the paintings in the capital returned up that are around that fabulous drum. In the Rotunda. Uh and I have not heard that there was damage to them. From the insurgents going through there the other day, But those paintings are so they can sit along the wall. They were actually recessed put into frames that are actually they're con que frames. They hugged the inside of the wall on you so you can see these wonderful paintings of famous Americans and of American history in the rotunda. You see them sort of like hugging Gar conforming to the curve of the wall. It's wonderful this this pain he could actually be in there. It's so much, you know, but it's in the National Gallery of Art. Completed in 17 96 bad word Savage. It shows George Washington. In Martha, seated around the table with the Custis grandchildren. Uh, Eleanor Parke, Custis and Martha on. I'm sorry. Just Eleanor. Martha, uh, and young Custis next to his his adoptive grandfather, George Washington, Washington and Martha. She's pointing with a fan at the site where Washington D C will be established. And so you can see the confluence of the Potomac with the Anacostia Rivers. It's there. The nap is open. It's spilling over the edge of the table. Washington's resting his hand on it. Martha is making a point with her fan pointed to the spot where the capital will be, Um, Eleanor Nellie Costas is standing on. She is looking at her adopted, um, grandfather. Uh, George Washington and behind them. We see. Kind of like savages. Um, serve interpretation of an English Grand manor group portrait. We see beautiful drapery, particularly around Washington. We see somebody coming in from the right. There's a household servant. A lot of thinking that this might be William Lee Washington's very faithful servant, not only a Mount Vernon but also a valley forge on throughout the campaign of the American Revolution. William Lee possibly coming in Uh, to the room. We see him behind Martha Washington. But beyond the drapery, we see this rather beautiful landscape, which I like to think of the Potomac River. You can see Maryland, Virginia, but you can see that there's a body of water there with a beautiful sunset scene. So a little bit of the English grand manner in that in that background in this large group portrait, George Washington shown in in uniforms, Washington said, And you said this to who don't he did not like. Depictions of himself shown as a Roman wearing like a toga or that sort of thing, or certainly armor, And this was the fashion of the day, and he was very pointed about that now. Later, sculptors in in the 19th century will show Washington seeded You know, as sort of like a monumental Republican Roman of like leader. He didn't like that in his own lifetime. Washington He wanted to be shown either regular clothing when he was president or in his uniforms, and that that's what he is shown in the savage portrait, and usually the other images of George Washington. You know, through the the early 19th century, either by the peel family or by other artists, Um, depictions of them usually show him in uniforms after his death in 17 99. There was a revival in interest of Washington's life as you would expect. Almost like the death of the Emperor Augustus, the founder, has died. What resulted was kind of like a cult of personality. After after his death, so many statues of George Washington it of monuments cenotaph, so devoted to George Washington sprang up all over. The United States, Uh, the first half of the 19th century. You had these celebrations of Washington's memory. One reason was that there were still a lot of people who had fought for the during the American Revolution. There were still people who had seen him. That kind of continuity was still there. Ah, And that added, I think to this decades long fascination with the cult of George Washington. In fact, I'm gonna be talking Tombo reading something from you from very interesting American pastor in a few minutes from a book written about his life with his writings in just a few minutes, But I want to talk about a few works of work that I've I've loved from American history from this period. One is. We're talking about a friend Gilbert Stuart. His date 17 55 to 18 28 uber stored is the painter of the American. The early American Republic. Just go to the national Gallery. Go to the DEA. Go to the Twitter Museum of Art. Go to just about any great American in small American museums anywhere. Go to Boston.

"July special presented by progressive insurance. Welcome back to the Independence Day special from the CBS Audio Network. I'm Gil Gross. We know a good deal about the founding fathers. We can reel off their names and accomplishments pretty easily and we passed by monuments and remembrances of them all the time. But other than the Molly pitcher's service center on the New Jersey Turnpike, where you can, ironically grab some very British Arthur Treacher sufficient chips, places that honor our founding mothers are few and far between. These are the kinds of stories that historian Kate Kelly likes to tell and has in more than 30 books and at her website, America comes alive dot com, where she tells the little known story set of the fabric of the United States history. She's also on the board of the American Battlefield Trust. Kate. Good to have you with us. How are you? I'm delighted. I'm perfect. Thank you. Let's start with Abigail Adams because I think since the HBO Siri's on her husband, really both of them more people than ever are at least somewhat familiar with our 2nd 1st lady. Tell me more about her. Well, I think the important thing to remember is that her line remember the ladies, which is what we all have have clung onto and gets repeated was actually a plea to her husband, John to remember women's rights when they put together the government. So So she was. It was a very pure, very serious request, and we can all later touch home. Had fat got implemented at that time, But from Abigail Adams. I'd like to make a quick, quick leapfrog over to Martha Washington because she's equally famous. And yet people have no idea what she did during the Revolutionary War. George Washington on Lee went home to Mountford and 17 75 and then he did not return until 17 81 so she made a commitment to meet him every winter. Now in those days, the revolutionary the Continental Army that the Army's did not fight during the winter weather so they would set up a winter camp so whenever he set up his winter camp Martha would make arrangements to go and join him as the leader of the army. He always got the house and so she did set up in the house, and then she would make sure that he was well rested and fed but also entertaining all the officers and anyone who came to make plans with him. And so that was a commitment that the she made, and the soldiers who wrote home from that experience said that it was actually lift to their spirits when Martha Washington Appeared for winter camp, which is actually a lovely thought. It is lovely thought, was it just the idea that she would appear there and be seen with them under these conditions and also just the fact that Her support of the revolution. I mean, Georgia, Martha Washington were very, very well off people. They were not revolutionaries because they had not prospered under the British system. So the fact that they were among the leaders of this revolution must have meant a lot to people. Yes, I think so. And also just the sense of calm that she was there that life was going to Become still for a little while. They were all freezing didn't have enough clothing. So there's not a whole lot to be grateful for, But it was one of those things that there was the sign of Everything's going to be okay. She's here. And I do believe they have a lot of belief in George Washington, so that made it a very positive. You know, Margaret Corbin is somebody who is interesting, because if we think of women as soldiers, which we don't often do back in the time of the revolution, her story stands out. What is her story? Well, she was the first woman to earn a military pension. And the surprising part about that story is she wasn't even in the military. During that time. It was common for wives, or it was somewhat common for wives to go along. Now. They did not have the market. Washington set up of moving up in a house, but a few wives would Go along with a regiment and be there for laundry and helping with food and that sort of.

"martha washington" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot

"Of thrones plots ahead of time. That story in about twenty minutes. When house speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked recently, whether congress will hold administration officials in contempt for refusing democratic demands for documents and testimony. She said we do have a little jail down in the basement of the capital, her remarks, last Wednesday drew laughter, but also confusion. Wait, what there's a jail in the capital, not really, according to Maureen groppy Washington correspondent, at USA today. Maureen jail or. No. There is not a capital jail. There's not anything that there's something that looks like a jail. That's in the basement of the capital. It has bars on it, but it's actually a tomb, it's where they wanted to put George Washington's body, his after the capital was filled and they had had an agreement with Martha Washington to do that. But then by the time they finish building the capital, his she was deceased, and his descendants said they, they prefer the George Washington remain. Mount Vernon so there, but there is this room in the basement of the capital that has bars on it, where his body supposed to be a now at hold the structure that's used to host of confidence for when people line state. So that sort of led to this myth that there's a capital jail and people have been joking about it speaker Nancy Pelosi did last week when she was asked about whether congress is going to start locking up. Trump officials who are refusing to comply with their request for documents requested. They testified before congressional committees, a deep dive on this, there are some places where you can hold some folks, who would need to be held. I guess who are in and around the capital, right there, there. There hasn't been a jail per se inside the capitol. There were rooms that have been used Darius times to detain people. Of course, we're, we're really talking a long time ago. But the congressional record. Had a reference to one room that had been used to house Steve that were arrested around the capital. This is an eighteen sixty eight but they rooms described as smelling, like the den of some foul reptile. There was also a time when a journalist was. Arrested by the sergeant of arms for the senators want wanted him to say where who had leaked him details of a treaty. And he refused to say that. So they kept him in a committee room during the day. And then he went home with sergeant of arms take eat inflate at night. And then finally, he was released the last time somebody, they congress took an administration official put put administration under arrest. It was the person was kept nowhere in the capital was there. There's a historic hotel near the White House hotel, and he was kept. He went there and slept overnight, before he was taken to a jail in DC jail was the William McCracken junior story. Exactly. And they Washington Post article about at the time was quite detailed in what his, his stay with, like at the at the jail. He got. Instead of getting a regular meal fair. He, he got to eat what the jail trustees a so the paper reported that his first male, there included, a cold shoulder cheese five pint bowl, creamed potatoes, fruit, jello in coffee Robbie Washington correspondent at USA today, she's written a piece entitled. Is there a capital jail were Democrats could lock up Trump aides who refused to testify? It's a clever piece about different rooms where people might be detained or have been detained in the past. So getting back to kind of the more serious issue. This are here of subpoenas, and things along those lines. What happens now? What actually is the discussion? Well, they're waiting to say they've they've asked for documents in. In one case they train generally embar has has declined to provide them. And so they they're trying to decide what they want to do in that case. In other instances, if they're also denied the documentary question or the officials won't testify, and they have a few options, but none of them are, are particularly good, one of the options is that they can exercise what's called there. They in here in power that they have that's been upheld by the supreme court to compel them to testify, which is to detain someone in until they just decide to testify. If if that were what happened, what would most likely happen is that there's a holding cell, the capitol police have near the capital, where someone could go temporarily, and then if they wanted to actually put them in jail, they would likely put them in a space in the city jail in DC.
