It's the Little Things

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

National Nonprofit Day with Hannah Hethmon

"Hey Paul this is Hannah Hessman August. Seventeenth is national nonprofit day. My favorite kind of nonprofits are museums. Of course, all our favourite museums are locked down right now struggling to get through this virus like the rest of us. So I thought we'd celebrate them a little and I challenge you on that note to find a great podcast created by a museum. Go. Well Hannah under most other circumstances, this would have been a minor challenge. But as it turns out, we have a mutual friend that has a podcast about museums and that same friend was my eighth guest on this show. For my first recommendation, I'm going with museum archipelago. When the host Ian Elsner was my guest I mentioned an old episode about the Apollo Eleven landing site. But I'm not going to take the easy way out and I'm going to suggest to newer and very relevant topic statues. In this episode and talks about the relationship statues and museums, he goes into the tearing down toward causton statue and one of his guests talks about the slippery slope. So to celebrate this National Nonprofit Day learn about a nonprofit consider donating time or money to one that you believe in and let us know using the National Nonprofit Day Hashtag. Today's guest is Hannah Hetman. Hannah's the writer and producer of the Vagina Museum podcast. Yes. You heard that correctly. In New York there is a sex museum which I've been to. In Iceland, there is a Pinas Museum which I haven't been to. And now there is a Johnny Museum which opened in London in two thousand and nineteen. The podcast. Liked the museum is all about smashing shame and stigma around the vagina through awareness education and route puns. The first and recommended episode is entitled. See you next Tuesday as in the letter C. and the letter, you would you like me to wait for you to figure it out. As most people know there are many terms for the vagina, but there is one that stands out as the most offensive if you still haven't figured it out, it starts with the letter C and ends would Tuesday? This episode answers a lot of questions about that specific word. For last recommendation Hannah recommends if people saw that slavery was getting started why didn't they stop it by Q. and Abe? She says and I quote. This podcast is produced totally in house by President Lincoln's cottage in DC. They take questions from their guests. They can't answer at the moment and die super deep into them with the help of historians to address big ideas in American history loosely connected to Abraham. Lincoln. Of course, but it's so much more than a podcast about Lincoln Unquote. For. Today's episode hot sauce. I'm going to relay on link that Hannah gave me. If I got stuck trying to find an episode related to this day. Hanna is the owner of better lemon creative audio that produces podcast for museums, history organizations, and cultural nonprofits. So check out the director she created that anyone can add to. Come back on August, twenty fifth where I'll be talking about close a topic I have no business talking about.

Slave trade remembrance concerns all humanity

"The history of the global slave trade concerns all humanity as has it impacts on modern societies according to the assistant director general for social and human sciences at the u._n. Cultural organisation unesco go now dr al-nashif was speaking to you and news ahead of the international day for the remembrance of the slave trade and its abolition celebrated needed annually on the twenty third of august twenty five years ago unesco launch the slave route project resistance liberty heritage a landmark initiative if that helped break the silence rounding the slave trade and slavery and a komo began by asking nada alma chief about the impact of the project given the origins of unesco our foundation obviously with the u._n. System on the ruins of the second world war <hes> creating peace in the minds of men and women was the ultimate <hes> core of the constitution and the fact of ignoring and obscuring major historical <hes> events with something that we wanted to redress and this was the hidden history of course that unesco wanted to have societies come to terms comes with and we believe that much of the issues actually remain today <hes> what's happened twenty five years ago. I think the most significant achievements were having decided to pursue this in a scientific way. <hes> we chose a a concept of route because of the dynamic movement that's his implicit <hes> and i would say that we have managed to foster to raise a much bigger awareness of the ethical but also of the political socio economic the cultural consequences of this entire exchange of people in civilizations <hes> we have prompted home to the development of research universities publications of books <hes> many pedagogical materials films and of course this <hes> many many debates and public engagements <hes> so and i think by giving the slave rate this universal dimension <hes> we have made sure everyone everyone understands. This is not a partial history the history that concerns the whole of humanity and we need to <hes> to discuss it. Maybe if i can just add a <hes> two things was a main accomplishment of the project was the fact that <hes> it's contributed to the recognition of the slave trade and slavery as a crime against humanity entity which is a specific category of crimes by the world conference against racism racial discrimination xenophobia in durban south africa two thousand and one <hes> and then also it allowed to advocate for the international decade for the people of african descent which is ongoing <hes> now <hes> and <hes> to which which we have many many attributes among them. I don't know if you've seen it but <hes> we contributed to the erection of a beautiful permanent memorial dedicated to the victims of the slave. They've trade inside the compound near the visitor's entrance one of these essential aspects of telling the history of slavery. It's not forget it so it's not repeated what lessons can be learned more. Specifically amongst the use wendy are exposed to the history of slavery and slave trade. Unfortunately as i said many of all of these issues are recurring and so it is very important for us at young people understand the caroline. <hes> as i said this is about freedom. It's about human rights. It's about dignity <hes> and it's about the culture of emancipation and what we want to do is make sure that young people in particular understand how we can see memory in a positive way i mean despite all the pain that is in memory and the healing that has to happen <hes> we want to turn this into a constructive pivots for young people to know what must not happen again and i think fighting thing racism in particular is a very important part of what we do so <hes> some things is for example making sure that people understand that these <hes> <hes> now. We have things that we call sites of memory. It's bringing everything to the surface and especially investing. I think for young people into understanding this as part of cultural social heritage we have now a label which was created in two thousand and thirteen cool site of memory associated with the slave roots and we have excuse of memory in africa and south america north america europe indian ocean and the caribbean we have produced resource books for example food and the handbook for new approaches in interpreting and representing slavery in museums again. There is a lot of exchange. Now and young people are participating participating from the perspective of cultural expression <hes> about how we represents this issue in these public domains all of that is very important and maybe <hes> maybe finally under this thing. There are many cultural creative activities that we enjoy today that come from the resistance of those who were enslaved slave. I wanna talk about jazz reggae hip hop kappa wera <hes> and i think these are all methods through which we reach younger the people <hes> more more intimately. I think and more profoundly what do you think it's the role of the artists specifically in with the healing the pain that comes with this period of history well. I think artists have a remarkable obviously for for for unesco cultural expression is a core commitment but it's also a corps belief <hes> in the sense that we rely not on our artists so we have a fantastic coalition of artists who've been working with us <hes> on the general history of africa including understanding slavery in fact for <hes> today marcus miller the great jazz artists recorded according to the message for us <hes> his voice is an easy amplification of the messages. You know so we have material. We have the scientific evidence. Don't we have this study but the artists in their own creativity. I think can reach a much wider audience <hes> so that's in the sense of music and art but also these new issues that we're trying for example the concepts of tourism of memory you you know the idea is to help develop a tourism <hes> which helps to sensitize visitors to various countries around the world where there's already a lot of movement and we we are trying to rely on artistic insights as to how to make those experiences more accessible to ordinary people <hes> and i think this is all a very big role was for artists who have been very very generous in extending their support to us <hes> four events or advocacy mainly as the until reaching out to many many parts of the population. Can you talk a little bit onto obstacles encountered and <hes> what our future prospects of the project the difficulties of course are the fact that it took a long time for us to <hes> billions the body of knowledge we have an international scientific committee tea and it took time of course to build these specialists that who come from very different backgrounds and regions <hes> in fact they are this scientific the committee meeting today in china and then on where we launched the original project so <hes> you know when we met for the first time the project was conceived conceived in one thousand nine hundred ninety four in bene- it was widow and we have an event today in rita to commemorate that <hes> but <hes> ah the subject matter one of the challenges of course it's subject matter is very sensitive. It is very emotive. It is <hes> deeply deeply psychological. It is traumatic. <hes> so the notion of bridging conversations of facilitating the exchange exchange is very very complicated. We were in a meeting in virginia last year where the estates monticello president lincoln and so on are very active in the issue issue of reparations now but to get to that you have to come to tom <hes> with the legacy itself first of all and another another challenge is the acceptance of the recognition so we had someone come from for example the university of wisdom which is just understanding now that many of the oldest most wealthy families bristol made their money from the slave trade so the accountability <hes> understanding <hes> <hes> how this approach needs to be sensitive but very clear <hes> because it is about human dignity she and the end is very very complicated <hes> and then i think what we'd like to do you need to link to the fight against racism and discrimination because there are many new forms of enslavement and exploitation. I mean it's it's milt true <hes> that this is something of the past i think until the mid ninety s we thought of slavery as a thing of the past but we now understand from the human rights campaigners from many ngos there are many forms of contemporary slavery that still exists and there are many governments still working on anti slavery <hes> and i think this is a little bit the the future what we'd like to do is to understand given this relevant how we can really <hes> further. I think popularize is knowledge and focus for example on initiatives that helped cities to develop philip affirmative action policies how we can work with lawmakers to repair or correct historical distortions <hes> and how we can really <hes> put together coalitions of people who are committed to making a change in the spirit of the poor commitments commitments set any of the united nations but the broader community to human rights in this day and age. We believe that the burning issues that we face in today's the world if you read the headlines just today in fact the new york times <hes> this morning <hes> has an article on what they're calling sixteen nineteen projects which examines the legacy of slavery in america just today but if you look at equity <hes> development human rights cultural pluralism dialogue reconciliation conciliation most of all prevention. I think <hes> what some people have called the black hole in history. <hes> this is what we are dedicated zip through. This is why we have this international day to remind everyone and we look forward to close cooperation across the globe to make this really a marker of never again.

"Yeah. There's something happening with Elizabeth. Warren horns popularity is gaining in the polls nationally field full of candidates. She's the one with a plan for everything I got a plan for that. Plant for that. She planned to win the places that made Donald Trump. President Lincoln twenty twenty dollar puts us in trouble live Fort Wayne in the heart of Trump country. All in twenty twenty candidate town. Running. Do you be? Say thank you, all for being with me here at saluda Brugge staff place address, you're probably enough is twenty twenty east Washington boulevard. It's a former brewery, and bottling plant back all the way back to nineteen three. It's our venue, tonight and for very special townhall event. We in the heart of the industrial midwest here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It's a city that seems fortunes rise and fall over the past century in a state that helped power to victory and twenty sixteen amid his promises of protecting jobs and keeping factories open. Now, a lot of people talk about how the Trump basis, the Trump base and no one's ever gonna defect from down from ever. But when you go back to twenty sixteen you look at those seventy seven thousand votes, it cost three key states. When you look at the over performance, Donald Trump had states like Indiana and Ohio, and those swing states. He narrowly eked out. The question is are some of those voters for play and what would it look like if they were willing to listen or vote for another candidate? It's the reason I think that Elizabeth Warren wants to coop. Some of the central economic rhetoric of Donald Trump, Donald Trump came to places like Fort Wayne, and all through the industrial, west and said, I'm going to be your protector and fighter to keep jobs here. We'll just in the last day, swing through the industrial midwest Elizabeth Warren has unveiled yet another new plan this one geared towards what she calls, economic patriotism and attempt to kind of recast, some of the Trumpian appeals to people's material interests in many of the places the country that have seen manufacturing go away and economic stagnation set in, and with that, I'd like to introduce tonight's guest center with wars. It's good to see you the folks in this room. I say very excited to see you well, during all of them. So here's here's a question that I got from we went back and forth, people we said, where, where would you like to do at townhall? We'd like Tom with you. And you guys that we media. Yeah. Are we? We're in Fort Wayne, Indiana, because people in Indiana understand jobs. They understand how you build an economy that doesn't just work for thin slice at the top, but in a Konomi that works for everyone, but people in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Also understand that living it to a handful of giant multinational corporations to build our economy, just even working those big corporations have any loyalty to America.

So he's trying to make some solidarity with her. And since the meeting several city and county officials have called on clamped to resign. Now, the background is important and background is always important. But apparently, he's made some bad comments before that have also been on tape, for instance. He said he was complaining about the doctor king national holiday. And yeah, he said not everybody does the mall following the national holidays because we have Robert E Lee who God, Robert E Lee wonderful part of history. Loops. Clem said speaking of the commander of the confederate states army. Well, not only overall commander at the end. For the army northern Virginia. Says we don't have George Washington anymore. He may be removed anyway because he had slaves. According to the Kansas City star Clem said is great grandfather owned slaves. Oh, that's a reason to fire him and president Lincoln's legacy wouldn't be fully realized because of the outcome of the civil war. In other words, he kind of wishes that had gone the other way, he also took umbrage with the fact that king had a federal holiday ultimate self out. George Washington had to share president's day with the other presidents. The colored Clinton acknowledged afterward after he got criticized for those comments those comments about the holiday schedule were disappointing and lacking in clarity. Okay. But these were comments that were made a while ago and using the term master race just using that term, even in a a purportedly humorous way. Does that really indicate a Nazi tinged comment? Don't really think. So. Meanwhile, just a little bit more of President Trump with Chris Wallace on Fox News talking about the election. Just give you a little sample of his analysis. We'll come back to that in just a moment. But. Look the biggest movie released.

So this took along this was this. This emerged to patients writing all of this. Yeah, just. Absolutely. I just think what the excerpt you read explains it best. I think that I've learned through writing the reward and the joy that comes out of just being really patient with a piece and patient with yourself. I think at least for me, the imagination. Is something that I have to really respect like its own little person. And so I can't demand too much of it. Sometimes I have to let let it take a rest and then come back and being conversation with it again, so, but it's a beautiful process that I've learned, you know, through writing. Yeah. I three. Anything else you wanna say about batter about being Huma, nor. You don't have to human. Let's question. Yeah, it is a big question. I think no. I mean, I think it's maybe to question. Well, anyway, I did actually, you did. You did address it and beautiful way. So I'd love for you. I think maybe let's read thirty eight last very long, but on your voice be. Tired glittery I was looking at page sixty four. Whereas I did not desire childhood and also page sixty five, which was your father's. Which was another. You know, part of the way you also reflected on what an apology is is about your experience. A really big apology that came from your father. And I, I, I think that we don't often enough. Value the intelligence. We have about something like an apology. Even if we're thinking about that as public work, the intelligence that we have from our personal experiences, we don't understand that translates to. So anyway, those were the two. I was wondering if you'd read them and then thirty s and then you could say a little bit about each of them if you went to before you start. Okay. Well, yeah, I actually would. I might mention that the piece about my father, the apology. He gave me, I really do actually consider that almost the heart of this whole response. And I think. I think the reason is I think it was the most effective and the most miraculous apology that I'd ever received in my life. I think now I should clarify before, say anything that my dad and I have a pretty good relationship. No, we, you know, keep in touch and visit and text and call each other. But when I was younger, he wasn't around a lot. He had a lot going on in his life so that created a great emptiness and you know, all kinds of. So I had a lot of. A lot of stuff I was carrying around with me. And when I was in my twenties, he came to visit one time and unexpectedly. I didn't even know he was going to Paul it. I mean, I didn't know. But unexpectedly he sitting at breakfast with me and apologized for not being there. And I think there was something. In the way he said it. He cried when he said it and I could feel it. No, I could physically feel that he meant it. And really, and I can say this to this day in that moment, all of it was gone. Like all that stuff I had been carrying around it just it was gone. It was lifted. I feel in many ways we started new from now point on, you know, I, I really have not had been need to go back and rehash things with him. And so on. You know, we started a a from that place forward. We've. Known each other in a different way. So anyway, that that one I hit that. Okay..

Conan O'Brien Is Headed To Japan To Visit 'Conan Town'

"Your day. American comedian late night, TV host, Conan O'Brien, and Akiko Matsumoto who is the mayor of ho Kway in Tony prefecture have been having some fun with each other over the air over the past week. They've been sparring over the fact that Hoke away is popularly known as Conan town because it is the birthplace of detective. Conan detective Conan is the star of a very popular Japanese anime and Mungo of the same name upset over his second-place billion Japan O'Brien called out the city on his TV show demanding three trillion yen. Three trillion yen is about two hundred seven. Ninety billion dollars for the appropriation of his name, though O'Brien show is relatively unknown. Here in Japan. Matsumoto responded on the city's official Facebook page, thanking O'Brien for introducing ho Kway to the world as you would do. The message also said, if you want the money come visit Hokuto responding a Brian says he wants more than just the three trillion yen and he laid out three additional conditions. One a building named after him to a key to the city, three plus a key to the homes of everyone who lives within twenty miles are about thirty two kilometers of Conan town. Well, it doesn't stop there. Then it was the mayor's turn to respond, not to Moto informed O'Brien that well, Japan doesn't have a custom of giving keys to the city that he wanted his face next to president Lincoln on mount Rushmore and his own star on the Hollywood walk of fame. He also wanted Brian to bring fifteen thousand American hamburgers with him when it comes to visit well, to put a pin in this story O'Brien, intern replied that he was indeed coming to totally next week. So we'll see what happens there. We don't know whether he'll get the three billion yen and as for the hamburgers. Yeah, I know you thinking how he's going to do that. The comedian said since he doesn't know how each resident of Conan town once there Patty cooked. Instead, he'll simply have an American cow airdrop. Opt into Tottori and the locals can grill it up. However, they like stay tuned for what should be an amusing visit, and perhaps the largest barbecue to toy prefecture has ever seen. Japan today readers, thankfully were also amused Smith in Japan, says, the mayor seems a good sport about it, but he can't even come close to rivalling Conan in challenges dares or fun, but I could see Conan going over there with his burgers for sure. And that would be funny, no doubt the mayor would smile, give him a sash and they would indeed put a pickup of Conan's somewhere all in good fun, valid valid point. But I think Matsumoto's doing well. Harry got dole ads. Good to see that mayor. Matsumoto has a sense of humor, a rare condition among Japanese local officials.
