"Platform and leave. I can't tell you to give me five stars but it'd be really nice. I can everyone go give tea with charles of five star review in a nice comment. Yes and talk shit on me and the comment. If you be nice to charles i i'll buy you a date coffee sometimes. There you go get some coffee. So trenton i had this big disappointment this past week ever list of possible places. I wanna go on my honeymoon someday. Alas afghanistan is no longer on. This list had to cross off. Well i think at this point. I think i've gained would probably be better to go to now than it was before. Because now you're getting a more authentic country that doesn't have a us presence there because otherwise we're gonna be to it too americanized and then you just you might as well be in any other place. America's occupied around the world. So now now you can get the full afghan experience and now that that's a honeymoon. Nothing will bring two people together like a survival course where there's real stakes where you can really die. Yeah this is. This is a hard one because obviously afghanistan is the biggest thing in the news this week but it's hard to put a comedic spin on taliban. Yeah it's like somebody who who kind of comes at everything from a comedy angle. I can't you. it's hard to joke about afghanistan. i don't know. I think it's easier joke about anything. I'm i'm the type of person if you watch the comedy that me and my brothers do. It's it's kind of edgy. It's not super edgy. Sometimes it does get that way but yeah we think everything is funny no matter what it is if your dog died yesterday is that actually not large devastating and it's sad but there is something funny there if you look for it always so we don't you know if your dog got hit by a car you know. Maybe he didn't actually get hit by a car..

This book feels like Your attempt to get people on flat footed and leaning forward. How do they do that? No, Pete. First of all the problem is I sound self serving When I tell people please read the book. So if you buy the book, just pass it to somebody else and have them pass by somebody else or go to the library or something like that. Because, as you know, There's a lot in the book, and it's not intended to overwhelm its intended to explain how do we do that? First of all, whether it's a political operation or military operation or a business plan or anything else. We need to know who our enemy is. Now. I don't say political adversary. Don't say opponents. These are people who want to take down this country and they are well along the way. And we see this. It's not just critical race theory. It's so many other aspects of our institutions. Our traditions are under attack things that you would never believed in your lifetime.

The focus of this year. The media comes from ascension by on maidens bruce dickinson a recent active campaign event delivered by jason. Momoa answer to the question. What's the difference between a customer. And a fun. Bruce replied customer is a person who can walk away. Bruce doesn't want customers. He wants fans five zero prepared to stand in a wet field waiting for his bound to come to the stage. And it's not that different if your business.

A customer would be someone who booked to attend one event and then didn't make any further appearance or would show up only sporadically in itself. Absolutely fine everything. We create will be embraced by everyone. But naturally i want to make turning up for event. Something of a habit from the of the media were nine events to the in person events that we make a comeback in two thousand and twenty one. I want people to enjoy each occasion and to be left wanting more. Perhaps it comes down to how you find a customer if only care about making a single sale cut corners the managed to convince them. That you're selling is essential. You might just close us out complete in the interaction. whilst that i'm believe in finding fans in a business context i think trenton and audience that develops into a community with community members on both. The long term is important. You don't have to aspire to happen fans but you should recognize that people feel good. Knowing they belong the power something community can feel only be achieved if people have an attachment. What you do it. People moving from being customers to community members is about stepping up a rung on the no light tressler staying around and you both being able to take something from your developing relationship and he listened to the lascaux to explain more for you when people come over to your side you have to prove buy into your world is a wise choice and that you won't let them down.

"Can you talk about what that role endangered so as a minority being part of minority coalition. How does that actually would say you're planning. Events are one out of the types of responsibilities. you're kind of involved in shore. What for chris. Carr my role on is on of the committee and really is to help develop strong. And broad foot trenton. Targeted monastic communities by by really joe trying to facilitate interactions with community based organizations to include aftermarket universities. Darkly restore cabrera colleges. Hvac us that had a very long standing history of mistrust to some extent. And so i kind of summit up just to really increase bernardi representation in these conversations around christopher and engagement with a very strong focus on making sure we have diverse forces some of our listeners. Who may not know exactly. What could a split on this. Can you just in a few lines. Dealers about guzman on absolutely or christopher is is an organization that really focused on the compensation crispin and they do it from the perspective where they're not be. The four or guest technology did not pro con but to really have conversations as it relates to this technology in house being utilized many ways and the benefits and risks down a bowl and started out by uc berkeley in conversations. There which later a year after moved to boston and she'll hope these. These conversations are kind of women around the country at really sparing Lotta interests around. Christopher and i can say that they've been very diverse voices after just faded indiscretions discussions. That's a very interesting role in vegas to learn more about your experiences by doing this. Just one question before that. How did you get into you. Know the crisper fields specifically was your background and christopher. How did that come to be that. You are involved in organized crisper con is. It's all started. President obama launch of the precision medicine issue which was pm. I in two thousand fifteen. I was invited to be a part of that much and that pm. I initiative is a multi year multi million on effort that was developed to keach around creating a diverse cohort to trutv by disease treatment for all but that program is currently known as all of us program and so from that launch. I started the minority coalition for position mets. So you're speaking under the bit of audio experiences. As an event organizer being part of that rising committee on crisper con- you had mentioned that when pulling together some event it was really impossible for you to find black researchers in the area. So could you elaborate more on the garden. Status stakes are the neck of diversity that you are seeing in the field. Well just to be honest. You know this is that i think at this point is kinda shameful in subsets. Your article article that you've written highlighting some of top companies in fear. Know as you look at even these compromises need couples this leading the work around crisper. You can see most senior today. Shes clearly the lack of diversity that so evident in these companies. And i think what is sometimes hurtful. Is that in this crisper in some ways to successive crisper. Really an johnny outcome A black disease sickle cell disease which is driving an has driven a lot of interest at of course financial investments. And so i would say at this point. It's not looking very good chance of diversity

What is Senator Cory Booker's Super Power?

"What's your superpower because you have been a sort of superstar at life for as long as i've been aware of the name cory booker which was before you were mayor before you ran for mayor. I was hearing about this guy cory booker. who's coming and he's big and he's on point with everything. And what are you doing. i. I don't know what we're hearing it'll be before. I was mayor than in the time of public enemy. And you don't believe the height. Look i was the superpower that was evidenced for me growing up which was not exaggerating. I think it's actually. A superpower under underrated is kindness. Like i just. I just watched two parents who were really good people and would see people that folks walk past all the time. I one of my favorite quotes by humorous gave. Barry has this goes someone who nice to you but not nice to the waiter is not a nice person but you and i both know 'cause i know you have this kindness and you as well that when you are kind of people. Incredible things happen that you don't realize your favorite stories and i'll tell you the quicker version but you go into school at stanford i'd five back and forth across the country. I still remember getting on this plane as a stanford student and being is torturous. When you're like six foot three football player tight end just like coach. Was you know always like my knees. We're going to be banged up on this plane. I have two seats open next to the rest of the plane is full and just before the door closes. This woman walks in with a screaming baby and a little boy and everybody on that plane. Those where they're sitting because the only three bodies two seats. And i think that we all don't realize we have a choice that we make every moment of our lives which is to accept things as they are or take responsibility for changing and so something evolved thought for teenage college student. That point hit which was. This is either going to be the worst flight in my life where i can try to make the best so i just leaned in and started talking to her in the cry baby in soon as i got into my own drama. I realize. Oh my gosh. This woman has a crying baby. The whole plane is looking at her like she's evil as she did something outside and told her baby to cry. Purposefully right and and so we just having a good time. I still remember the movie. Think about this. How purposeful this moment for me. That i remember that movie was glory with denzel washington. And she's like. I haven't seen the movie and so long and i'm like watch this movie your son and i we're gonna play games. We played hangman. Killed them with all my best. Dad jokes that. I had even back then killed them and hangman mad. And by the time we landed. It was the quickest flight. I ever had cross country. You said we keep in touch. We exchange addresses back then no email and didn't and five ten fifteen years later. I'm running for mayor of the city of newark. And i'm getting like thumped and on one of my toughest ones frustrating days. I get this letter in the mail saying to me. You may not remember me but But i you were on this flight first time. I flew with my kids telling me what the kindness then meant to her and then she tells me by the way we. My family owns a big factory in newark and we have tons of employees. She ended up becoming a big part of my campaign. That kid that i tortured with my jokes became one of our best volunteers or per workers. Excuse me to take. Their churches introduced me. It was just an amazing full circle. Kindness is energy stanford. Professor actually studies this that you just doing one kind act witnessed by someone. It will affect people three degrees of separation for you. it is created a way to measuring it. it's a virtuous thing and so my life you know. I just think that that's is a superpower that we under related just a kind word to somebody at the right time can make a difference that you don't even realize so. I don't know if i don't have any superpowers. I'm really far more ordinary than the hype as you just said but i've just tried to go out of my way for me. It's it's a matter of my faith which is of radical love trying to do for people and you have parents like you. And i probably had two black guys who had parents would not let me forget of the struggle parents that were involved in the civil rights movement. That my i. I was raised up thinking like i didn't the privileges that i enjoy. We're not earned. They were paid for as my grandparents. Would by the blood sweat and tears of your ancest-. I definitely grew up thinking i stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. I have a responsibility to the people who march to died protested. Who were enslaved. There i remember being in college and thinking you know i was why and i didn't feel that responsibility. The past i mean cool to like pena. Cia but i can't. I have a responsibility. People came before me. I wouldn't be here without them. So i have to do something. And perhaps my think my journey in media has been something of being helpful black people in some way but you know that sense of responsibility that you talk about. I definitely felt and you have that has powered your life. It is the my faith earlier. But that is in trenton. Integral part of what motivated my life decisions. And very you know i. I'm here because a group of people fought for my housing rights. Like i grew up in the town. I grew up in harrington park. There was a group of activists when my parents were getting denied real estate agents were lying to them and telling this house is sold. It was called real estate steering at the time right and so they set up this sting operation where they would send white couples right behind my parents and so it i mean this was the story into making chapter my book because involvement at one point. My father's lawyer getting punched in the face and just like dog being signal. my dad craziness. But i'm a baby when that happened. Fifty years ago this summer that had happened and so imagine growing up with parents that could live. Look you in the eye. My dad be like boy. People had fight even get you a chance to be in the school. You're going to. You're going to get your out of bed and go to school and make the best out of yourself and so coming out of loss when i'm done and i always joke that my dad was like bat impressed. He was proud of his son but stanford oxford yale. He's like boy. You got more degrees the month of july. Which ain't hot life ain't about the degrees you get. It's about the service you give like. We're gonna do with all this privilege and so the first job. I had coming out of law. School was a tennis rights lawyer. People fought for my housing rights. I was going to go and fight for other people's and so my life. And i love you said this because we grew up reading bolt we reading voice and talented tenth and the obligations of that you get from getting the privileges that you know are denied to you. Got here is black. Men who i know the data i mean the leading cause of death for us murder fifty four fifty between fifty and sixty percent homicides in america are people look a lot like us black men and and so you feel this sense of. I can't rest. I've got to keep working. Got to keep pushing until we can make the society be what it is and by the way we never get there. At least we can try to pay that payback. What was given to us.

New Jersey Voters Approve Marijuana Legalization Referendum

"Biggest news in New Jersey tonight is that voters have overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure that will make recreational marijuana legal in New Jersey. One of the leading advocates behind that push Bill Caruso, who heads the Cannabis Law division at the Archer Law, firm advocacy groups have already declared victory. The AP is now calling that ballot approval official now in New Jersey so New Jersey will join a number of other states nationwide. That have now legalized recreational marijuana bill your initial thoughts on that vote. I think it's good. It's clear and convincing victory and I think that there are a lot of lessons and New Jersey learns by not being first, and I think there's benefits or not going last and certainly not by allowing that said. To set up the market for us, So I think we will now work with the Legislature and the governor to put together a statutory framework and then regulatory system. And, um, I don't think we will see a don't use sales until late in the third and perhaps even fourth quarter 2021 of the earliest. Interesting in the numbers with his ballot question that even in counties where President Trump leads Republican leading counties, there was significant support for This ballot initiative interesting that they went this way because the Legislature and the governor simply couldn't come to agreement on legislation that would have made it legal and basically punted to voters. Are you surprised of what? This isn't a partisan issue. That's the beautiful part about it. There's something for everybody here, even for people that aren't going to avail themselves of using adult use marijuana If you believe that a person that had a crime it was convicted of a crime of marijuana possession in their twenties should have a life sentence for employment restrictions going forward. You don't think that any longer Business for you. If you think we should be benefiting from tax revenue from this and putting it behind regulated store counters, this's for you. There's a lot of value here, and I think that's where you see the voters, voters speaking and saying So the Legislature go get this done now we want But the devil is in the details were talking to Bill Caruso ahead of the cannabis Law Division at Archer Law firm. You've been in this political game long enough. You know that legislation that That should seemingly be easy rarely is and you still have concerns among law enforcement that are gonna have to be dealt with in any enabling legislation. That that will satisfy questions about whether there's going to be proper enforcement of driving under the influence here. Listen, The good news is that's not going to be the biggest issue. We have to deal with the law enforcement. Ah, issues that have been raised are absolutely of concern. But when we look in other jurisdictions, we look at how they dealt with him. And we also look at what our very capable law enforcement officials have done here in New Jersey with drug driving in general, there are answers for this. The real Devils in the details when people start getting into turf wars when they start trying to make the perfect the enemy of the good, unsolvable problems in one fell swoop there. This is going to be in some cases, generational change. This legislature and this governor actually have a deadline now attached, you know, in Trenton deadlines were good, but after the first of the year if they don't enact a statutory framework for what's going to be enacted We're gonna have problems here because the Constitutional amendment says it's now illegal effort. But without rules attached to it is going to really be a conflict, so the Legislature has a deadline to act now. And then the issues of keeping this out of the hands of miners, and you know this is adult use that's always been billed as adult use marijuana. But as we've seen with alcohol as we've seen with tobacco, it's gonna find its way into the hands of kids on DH. You know, there are significant medical issues that are connected to The use of cannabis in an undeveloped brain. They're absolutely R and the issue we have right now is our Children do have access to canvass? I am I'm raising three Children 14, 12 and 10. And it is easier for particularly my 14 year old probably to get marijuana than it is to get alcohol right now. Vote. Every jurisdiction that has undergone and they don't use effort has seen teen use go down. Some of that is because it is actually Harder to get because it is now not in the in the black market is behind this store counter. That doesn't happen overnight, by the way, but it's also because of some cultural changes that happened. So, um, the the team use issue goes on now, regardless of adult use. We haven't seen any statistics in any jurisdiction. That's Legalised adult use where we've seen teen years go up. In fact, it's gone down in those jurisdictions. So you're predicting at this point bill that we are going to see enabling legislation potentially by the end of the well has to be done by the end of the year, Right? I mean, what if this is being negotiated already? This can have come as a surprise, right? I mean, where How far along are they in in this process to to address a number of the issues that you and I talked about here tonight? They were on the doorstep of getting this done in the spring of 2019, but they fell a couple. Both short is normally the case. I'm hopeful that there's overwhelming support now on both sides of the aisle in the Legislature to get something done similar to what the original draft wass And remember, when we do this, there is going to be multitudes of opportunities to continue to amend this law changed regulations so It doesn't necessarily have to be all in now. It's there needs to be a basic framework. For what this is gonna look like I'm ability and modify it both through statutory and regulatory means probably through the courts and also through the budget process. So Way we will not see a lot of revenue at the outset of this market is beginning to develop. In fact, you and I talked earlier. There's no money booked this year in this year's budget, which is refreshing. So I think there's a lot of opportunity to figure out. Where do we want to devote. The resource is a year from now, two years from now, when they start to make sure and come in, and there's more money coming, and I think there's time for all those discussions sometimes bottleneck legislation. Yeah, I think you know this is going to be an ongoing conversation that that you and I will certainly continue to have with our listeners as a cz. We as we go forward, and and we'll see what the what the prospects are in terms of crafting this this legislation and I know you'll be a big driver of that. So Bill Caruso ahead of the Cannabis Law division. At the Archer Law firm. Thank you, as always, for your time and your insight

The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks

"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.

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.

A Conversation With Maria Hinojosa And Lulu Garcia-Navarro

"The one and only Monday. Joins, me now welcome Lulu. It's it's such a pleasure. I. It is such a pleasure to have you on and to read this book it's called once I was you and it is based around the story. Of how you came to the United States for the first time, tell us that story. Yeah. Well, it's an interesting story. I didn't actually know it like a lot of us. We don't actually ask our parents. So how exactly did I know that you came for example, my whole family we were born in Mexico my dad MPC go of us in Mexico City and dad gets hired by the University of Chicago. He's a medical doctor dedicated to research and long story short he helps to create the cochlear implant. He was an amazing human being. May He rest in peace? So that was in Chicago and my mom, and the four of us kids I was the baby in her arms get on a plane. It's the early nineteen. Sixty's we fly from Mexico City to Dallas and change planes in Dallas, and then we're GONNA fly onto Chicago and. When I finally found out the story when I wrote raising, which is a Motherhood Memoir that I wrote like twenty years ago. You know I found out that there was this whole thing that happened at the airport and that an immigration agent was like you know saying that had some weird skin thing and you know maybe had to put me in quarantine and my mom was like Nah and then I came and I saved the no she didn't say it like this but basically, it was like me Ma Ma Ma you know. She's five feet tall by the way, but stood up and. Know had this kind of moment with immigration agent and and it was a story that I told. Kind of like saying, wow, my mom is such a cool woman like I understand where I get my powerful voice even though she's tiny, she spoke back to an immigration agent. and. Then in the writing of this book, blue is really what happens is that I really understand what was happening there. There were trying to separate you from your mother. They basically told your mom that they were GonNa, take you away and put you in quarantine quote unquote and that she was free to go with her other children but that you would have to stay behind I mean. Can you imagine like? When my mom called me in the midst of and you know Lou that I've been covering this story, the entirety, my career immigration writ. Large. And my mom calls me at the airport. I was flying from one back when we were flying around and in the midst of the height of babies being put into cages, we were hearing the voices. You know we knew this was happening. This is not. This not begin with the trump administration but anyway. Mom. Calls me and she's crying she's like is Gay It could have been me. If I'm a your she was like that was I could have been one of those moms and I swear to Lulu that. By heart dropped I was like Oh. My God. So it's not a story of like my mom. Eh, you know speaking back it's a realized now a story of trauma and that. Wouldn't have happened I think had I not written the book and had the horror of immigration policies becomes so. Crystal. Clear. So inhumane so hurtful and frankly now finally so public You. As you mentioned what brought to Chicago, which is where you grew up, but you always maintained your connection to Mexico and your roots you'd go back and forth. You came here on a green card. When did you become a citizen? I asked this simply because that transition of becoming. An American you said was difficult for you. You. You found it hard to sort of occupy these two spaces. So, it was great because in the writing of the book, I actually had to like do the time line and and then I had to go back and find my citizenship. It was a actually I had just come back from a reporting trip with Scott Simon Scott and I were down inside whether it was December of Nineteen eighty-nine Lau Offensive Little Trenton Webb the FMLN offensive the guerilla warfare was happening inside word and I went down to produce Scott. And I came back and just a few days later I took the oath. Look the reason why it was complicated was because way back then maybe now I am beginning to understand maybe it was because of that traumatic experience in Airport in Dallas I, always kind of new. Like this isn't a certain thing for you. This thing about you being able to come in and out of the United States you've done your whole life. Now. You're a woman you're a journalist you've been to Cuba. You've got you've been tool Salvador you. You know. There may be a time when they say you can't come back and I understood that and so I have to be honest as I am the memoir he was motivated in large part by fear that that my green card could be taken away and that I could not be allowed and this was before this whole conversation of like what's happening now you know this was way before it was a different time but I think I kind of I, kind of knew it. So the thing that happens when you become a citizen in this country is you have to raise your right hand and you have to swear that you will bear arms for this country. And people who are born in this country like my own kids haven't had to do that. When you have to do that you take this thing really seriously you know like the Constitution and the bill of rights and you know all like you take it really seriously, and I think that's why because the book is certainly it's about immigration, but it's also about like my. My struggle for democracy and being seen as a journalist taken seriously to be that's all a part of democracy and it just becomes I mean I was living with a green card I was I was definitely understanding my role as a participant. But when you raise that right hand, it's at a whole

How to embrace awareness

"My friend Sir. This is daily breadth. We are in the first week of our new series total meditation. But it's no transformation is what meditation provides once you embark on the journey. The first step is realizing that awareness in some form is always present. In every moment of our life. Awareness is the backbone of everything we think feel perceive imagined or sense it is awareness that is watching this ceaselessly. And the awareness itself is not judging labeling. That relieved to the mind, the awareness is the observer of the mind itself. So awareness precedes thoughts in modern life, which is built on mental activity. No one has any idea where thoughts come from. Nothing about a brain investigates processing thoughts, feelings, or sensations. But as we wake up, so does the cosmos wake up the notion that human beings we can make the universe wake up it's very interesting notion proposed by many scientists including the physicist David Doors. Who says that it's explanatory process. That gives meaning to the universe and that actually places consciousness. Trenton Center in the creative process, you may have heard from the physicist John, argued Huila, that we live in a participatory universe. In other words, everything that we think is real out there depends on our beliefs, perceptions and observations and interpretations and expecations in here in here, meaning in our own consciousness, not own south.

"Welcome to reverie true crime where daydreams become nightmares. I definitely made some changes since the last episode. I wanted a name for the podcast that was shorter and more sensible i. hope you guys like it. Today's episode will not be for the faint of heart. I will be discussing man that brutally slade, children and animals. This episode will definitely not be for everyone. Richard Trenton was one of the most disturbing people ever researched and written about. If you are sure ready. Let's get started. Richard Trenton Chase was born on the twenty third of May and nineteen fifty as a young kid, he had fascinations with lighting fires in harming helpless animals Richards little sister was four years younger than him and his dad. Well, he was a very strict father and disciplinarian. Who sometimes took it too far? Richard's dad was also constantly arguing with his wife. In nineteen sixty at only ten years old Richard was taking the lives of cats. An age eleven. His parents lost their house. Going into his teenage years, he was drinking alcohol using drugs, and he also still worth the bed. He always got into trouble, but he was far from ashamed about it. The behaviors only worsened. Lighting fires wetting the bed as an adolescent and harming animals is often called the MacDonald triad. It's also known as the triad of socio pathy which was proposed by j McDonald a psychiatrist in nineteen sixty theory as an indication than individual was associated path. Richard also known as Rick had been in a few relationships, one of the females he dated said Rick couldn't keep an erection. Therefore, he was not able to have sex which was very upsetting to Richard. He, even went to a psychiatrist about his problems in nineteen, sixty eight at the age of eighteen. He learned that he couldn't perform in the bedroom because he was holding so much anger deep down inside. This psychiatrist thought that Richard had serious mental illness. She never did recommend that he should be put into a mental facility. Richard left his family's home to get a place that he would share with roommates. The roommate's never stayed long. They said he behaved an unusual ways that made them uncomfortable plus the way he abused drugs. All of it just didn't sit right with any of the roommates and they would bail. Richard actually did have a handful of friends and they all said that he was a weird individual Richard would hammer nails into the bedroom closet door to keep it closed. He did so because he said people in the closet were invading his space. He attended a party at one of the apartments and got kicked out fondling girl there. He went back to the apartment, and eventually the police got there, and we're forcing him to leave, but a twenty two caliber fell out of the.

Don't Try To Be Great

"In his book. Based on a commencement speech he gave at Dartmouth College in twenty eleven. Charles Wheel tells a story about how he was once a guest on a news program hosted by Chicago journalist Phil Ponts now the show is filmed live. So of course if you mess up or say something you regret there are no do overs. They're only hundreds of thousands of pairs of eyes watching. You do whatever it is you did or say whatever it is you said polished or not just before airtime Charles the writer recalls how. He was feeling right before. He said he was nervous. Self-conscious in hoping to impress in that very moment fill. The host leaned over with just thirty seconds to live and said these words. Charles never forgot. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and in it. Charles Leland writes this. That simple advice had a profound effect. Because I knew I could be solid. That was within my control. I could just talk about what I know. I could answer questions candidly. I could have a fun and interesting conversation with other guests. I might have some fun. Equips I might not. Phil's advice was liberating because it removed the pressure to deliver what I wasn't certain I could deliver and it made me better at doing what I knew I could again. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and don't try to be great. Is thing ten and a half like many of you? I've been thinking a lot about this class of twenty twenty both like I said the high school graduates college graduates to in addition to all of the end of year events. This graduating classes either missing out on her having to modify because of the pandemic the truth remains they're still graduating. They are moving into the world of grownups and the expectations in this world can be while extreme to say the very least. This world is filled with people who are trying to be great in the same way. I hope doing the next great thing is a kind of phrase for graduates to hold onto. I think Philpott he gave to Charles. Leland seems like a relief as well. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. It's not the message we usually hear after all the phrase is greatest of all time not solid est of all time or does that even mean to be solid years ago. I listened to an interview with author Philly Anderson who by the way is also a real life dear friend of ours here. North Carolina but in the interview Phil shared about his thirty year. Friendship with author and priest Brennan Manning in that interview Phil says this about Brennan Guy who's famous for what he has to say yet. What I remember most about him was how he sat and listened. He touched my life with his kindness. To fill. Brennan was solid. Another story comes to mind about Brennan himself one that he told his book souvenirs of solitude and it was about how years ago after a difficult phone call he had. He left his home. He was distracted and he had an appointment. That day. To give a talk to the inmates of Trenton State prison when he stood up there in front of the inmates he had been distracted. Like I said right before. He got up there so without stopping to think about his surroundings. His first words of greeting to the inmates were well. It's nice to see so many of you here when I read that statement. I tip my head back and laughed out loud all by myself mainly though I recognized how Brennan responded to his own words he wrote. I'm frequently not inform on top or in control. This is part of my poverty. As a human being and self acceptance without self concern simply expresses a reality he writes an impoverished spirit prevents the poor man from becoming a tyrant to himself. Brand was not anxious shocked or even much concerned about this misstep in front of the inmates. Instead he had a light heart about it if he had been trying to be great that day. This mistake would have crushed him instead. He showed up solid which meant there was room to make a mistake and to move on without crumbling. We try to great. We risk becoming a tyrant to ourselves when things don't go the way planned one final quote and then I'll be done Dallas. Willard writes about the misunderstood phrase that we find in the Bible about dying to self he says in this is a quote when we see people dominated by their lust for glory or insisting that there will be done we will be in a position where we can be very firm in not cooperating with them even if their loved ones when we live in the shepherd sufficiency and died to ourselves. We become the most firmly established people in the world. That quote is from his book. Life Without lack the most firmly established people in the world so class of twenty twenty. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. Be Solid in the way you live in your house until the next phase begins in the way you hang out with your family your choice to laugh instead of roll your eyes in the way you choose to listen to your younger siblings. Who will miss you more than they can possibly say. Or put into words be solid with how you enter into your next experience not like a tourist who watches from behind a camera lund's and insists all of your usual comforts are close at hand and not like an expert who thinks she's supposed to know everything as best you can enter into your new situation ready to be fully present and engaged when you can and free to withdraw when it's necessary be solid enough to be boring if you're trying to be great you might not notice the people and the margins your neighbors who are working twice as hard for half as much. If you're trying to be great you might be tempted to bend the truth to get ahead. So just be solid honest simple and you

"The British and Hessian took well over a hundred casualties. The American casualties are not well recorded. But an estimated two or three dozen at at least two Americans were captured and summarily shot. This was pursuant to orders to take no prisoners. The Battle at eight mile run was a fairly early substantial one. As far as revolutionary war skirmishes go but one that tends to get lost in the larger events of a few days before and after it also put the British on notice that the Americans were in no mood to scatter and would challenge their advance on Trenton. The British could probably take the Tau but they would pay a substantial price in blood on the evening of January first a few hours after the skirmish and probably about the same time. That General Cornwallis Cornwallis had arrived at Princeton and was holding his own council of war with the British and Hessian Officers General Washington held his own council of war. With his this generals in Trenton. These included the two division commanders Generals Greene and Sullivan as well as Knox read and Saint Clair. Congress had just promoted Henry Knox to general a few days earlier following the first battle of Trenton. So congratulations Henry here. No longer a colonel here now. A general the leaders expected a British advance to come and needed to decide how to respond. One option was to fall back to cross wicks where Colonel cadwalader still had a couple of thousand militia another option would be to order cadwalader forces to join them in Trenton or they could keep the two units separate engaged the British in Trenton than fall back that allow cod waller's forces to hit the British a second time after some debate eight they decided it would be best to focus both armies in Trenton and face the enemy there Benjamin rush a member of Congress was visiting the army see that night and had just come from cadwalader forces Washington asked his opinions and requested that he carried a note to cadwalader ordering during the army to Trenton Rush. Set off that night. With Washington's orders making the seven Mile Journey on horseback in about three hours arrived at cadwalader camp around one. Am and got the general out of bed. After a brief discussion cadwalader woke his army assembled the men and and began a night March Trenton. The bulk of the army arrived in Trenton shortly after dawn on the morning of January second the Combined Continental Continental Army and militia in New Jersey. Total around seven thousand men but not all of them were in Trenton. Also on the morning of January January second only hours after cadwalader forces had begin marching north to Trenton from crosswalks. British General Lord Cornwallis main column of British British Haitians began their march south from Princeton Toward Trenton. Only a mile or two out of Princeton the lead collar began taking fire enemy riflemen attempted to pick off searchers or anyone mounted on a horse they took the shot and then wrote off before anyone could get to them. The harassing fire took out a few men. But mostly had the effect of angering frame the nerves of the attacking column even further at least once or twice during this ride a Hessian attempted to ride out after one of these local horseman the horsemen lead his pursuer into an American ambush who shot and killed the pursuing Hessian the locals then disappeared before anyone else from the column could attack them.

This is a maneuver where an officer mounts his horse turns it around so that the tail of the Horse is facing the enemy. Then Spurs the Horse to flee from the field in a panic. Fermoy galloped away toward Trenton without saying a word leaving his brigade without its commander. The soldiers were stunned but second in command. Colonel Edward Hand from in Pennsylvania immediately assumed command assisted by Major Henry Miller from Maryland. The men ambushed the British advance guard forcing them to retreat in disarray. Back to the main column American artillery forced the British column to stop and form a line of battle the American force. I was clearly outnumbered against Cornwallis entire army and never expected to do anything but delay the British advance. They held the British at bay. Hey for about two hours before. British flanking maneuvers threatened to surround them then pulled back in good order to another defensible position about a quarter mile down the road. There they halted the British column a second time when overwhelming forces moved in on their position again the group just moved further herself to a place called Stockton hollow just on the northern outskirts of Trenton. Again they delayed the British column before Colonel Hand and his men and fell back once again the British and Hessian forces marched into trend from the north the same route taken by the Americans in the first battle of Trenton. There was some streetfighting town as the Americans fell back. The men retreated through Trenton to reach the main continental lines. Just south of Trenton. On the other side of s and Pink Creek General Knox's thirty cannons opened up an artillery barrage on the British and Haitians as they began into occupy the town. General Cornwallis ordered his own larger cannon into position and returned fire there an artillery duel lasted about thirty minutes occur hands delaying tactics. Had done what they needed to do. They kept the British from reaching Trenton. Until just before sundown the British and Hessian took control of Trenton where there was some infantry fighting in the late afternoon. Hand's Brigade made a fairly orderly retreat through through town along with a few regiments that Washington had sent across the creek to support their retreat. The heche did manage to capture one on arm chaplain who had lingered a little too long in Trenton Tavern. Taking no prisoners they robbed. The man stripped him. Naked forced him onto his knees and then bayoneted added him to death. Most of the Americans though retreated out of town across the bridge over s and Pink Creek to make sure the retreat did not turn into a panic attic general Washington personally wrote down to the bridge and directed his men across pointing them to their positions in the main continental line. At this point it was about sundown but the British and Hessian continued to probe the line for points of weakness but finding that Washington had deployed his troops and artillery tillery to cover the bridge and any fords along the river where the enemy might cross the British and Hashes made four attempts to take the bridge that evening but but were driven back with heavy casualties each time. The British did not bother to report their casualties but the Americans estimated that the killed wounded her capture to be at least five hundred most estimates. Put this a little lower may be three fifty to four hundred including those shot during the march to Trenton as well as as the fighting in town and on the bridge the Americans themselves took only about fifty casualties that day. With nightfall both sides settled down. They continued to fire their cannons. All Night Cornwallis decided against nighttime infantry attack. Though many of his men had marched about seventy miles in two days and had been involved in a running battle for most of the day Cornwallis kept his men along the banks of the creek without fires where they could keep an eye on the Americans and prevent the enemy from making any advances to identify their positions Cornwallis then deployed his army into two positions for a dawn raid. American scouts reported on these deployments Cornwallis held another council of war with his other officers including grant Sterling Leslie and Erskine. They discussed the option of a night raid but cornwallis opted for a dawn attack. Once all all of his forces were positioned where he wanted them he also wanted to bring in more artillery overnight from Princeton the night attack on unfamiliar terrain and with exhausted troops just held too many risks. They would finish the job in the morning next week. Washington ops not to let Cornwallis what was finish the job at Trenton but instead dashes off to fight the battle of Princeton. Hi thanks for joining the American Revolution. Lucien podcast after show as I'm releasing this episode over Thanksgiving weekend. It seems appropriate to say thanks to everyone who has listened to the show so many of you have opted to support the show financially on patriotic. And that's a big help. I also very much appreciate everyone who has left a five star review on itunes or anywhere else that allows reviews and comments even just being a faithful listener. Makes me grateful. I have one other renouncement this week. Some of you may already noticed an advertisement at the beginning of the show Scott rank host of the podcast. History unplugged is the shows. I sponsor I met Scott at podcasting convention a couple years ago. His podcast covers a wide range of topics from any point in history. And all over the world. I've been enjoying his. Pike cast personally for a couple years now and can heartily recommend it as for my decision vision to add advertising at all to the American Revolution podcast. I've been reluctant to use it only because I know that ads can be annoying however they they are necessary if the shows ever going to be able to support itself for now. I'm limiting the adds to ones that I read so you won't be subjected to any annoying voices or jingles. I won't put them in the middle of an episode although the spot between the main show and the after show may be fair game and most importantly I'm only accepting ads that I think are relevant and of interest to you things related to history no no insurance or detergent ads. I hope this makes them a little more palatable. If you still don't like ads you can subscribe to Patriarchy for as little as two dollars a month and get a private. RSS Feed that allows you to listen to all episodes both old ones and the new ones completely ad free so that is still an option. Anyway it's a big big change for me and that's what's happening. You're probably not listening to hear me. Talk about podcast advertising though you WanNa hear more about the revolution this week take the empire strikes back. After Washington's rate on Trenton General Cornwallis leads the large army south to Southern Jersey or West Jersey Z.. As they called it at the time to reconquer the area for the king and the British Empire now remember Wallace is really ticked off that his plans to go home for the winter were cancelled for up and coming officers. Winter campaigns were important times to go home and Brown nose with the ministry to get promotions. Probably more importantly to Cornwallis. His wife was sick and he hoped to spend some time with her so when he got recalled just as he was about to board a ship for London he was not happy that may be why he opted for a direct assault in a single column directly to Trenton. He wanted to smash the rebels hard fast so he could put an end to any winter. Campaign Cornwallis of course would discover that hitting the Americans was much like punching coaching. Jello of course didn't have Jello at the time but the analogy works. Today he could force them to move but he could never actually smash them. If he moved away they would just move.

"trenton" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast

"Hello and thank you for joining the American Revolution Today. Episode One twenty five the second battle of Trenton. We we last left the continental army having pulled off a surprise victory at Trenton capturing the Hessian garrison there and then retreating back to Pennsylvania after which time the leadership almost immediately decided to go back to New Jersey again and see if they could follow up on their victory as Washington attempted to build on his victory at Trenton. And the British in New York had to decide how to react to the Trenton raid. Now I've been covering quite a bit of detail over the last few episodes so it's important to remember that despite there being several weeks of discussions here. It's really only been about two weeks. Since General How had secured New Jersey in mid-december Organiz the outposts and returned to New York City to sit out the cold winter with good wine a fire and his mistress Hessian Colonel von done up had retreated from Mt Holly on the night of December twenty six moving his force of Haitians Toward Princeton and Brunswick he also collected some of the Hessian who had escaped capture at Trenton during his March von upset a messenger to Brunswick with news of the capture capture of Trenton from their British general. James Grant who had served as overall commander of the force in New Jersey sent an express rider to New York City to inform general. How some of the report suggested that? The Americans had invaded New Jersey. With as many as twenty thousand men and in truth there were may be at this point. Five or six thousand combined. Total American soldiers in the state. If you're counting all the men that Washington brought over as well as the men who crossed under general cadwalader and some militia that were raised locally but the bulk of these thousands of soldiers were relatively inexperienced militia when how received word on December twenty seventh that the Americans had attack Trenton the day before and had taken the Hessian garrison their prisoner he knew that his work was not done for the year. How had no intention of marching out into the snow himself though instead he called on his most able field officer still in New York? General Lord Cornwallis had already stowed his his bags aboard the HMS Bristol. He was looking forward to his return to England for the winter and to be with his sick wife instead general how cancelled his leave and ordered him back to New Jersey Cornwallis would take his army to Brunswick then onto princeton leaking up with general grant and the other British and Hessian forces already in New Jersey to meet the British column preparing to advance to Trenton. The Americans had retaken the town of Trenton. Written the first of Washington troops re entered the town on the afternoon of December twenty ninth three days after they had I rated and then returned turned to Pennsylvania. Washington continued to move men across the river that night as well as the thirtieth and thirty first Washington personally unle crust. On the morning of December thirtieth and joined his men in Trenton. Later that day. Colonel Joseph Reed was already in Trenton on the twenty ninth ninth. When the first soldiers arrived he had been with colonel cadwalader militia who'd crossed on the twenty seventh and made their way from Burlington to Trenton a day earlier read began? Deploying troops almost immediately in pursuit of Colonel Von Russians. who were by this time? Mostly north of Trenton but perhaps not entirely secured and connected with reinforcements. It wasn't until the following day December thirtieth that the bulk doc of unknown ups army reached Princeton and joined up with General Alexander Lesley's regulars that same day read personally road out near Princeton to scout the town and gather intelligence about the enemy position. You may remember that Colonel Read was Washington's personal aide. The man that the two had a falling out with over generally read had been a Philadelphia lawyer before the war but before he was a Philadelphia lawyer. He had grown up in the Princeton area so he knew the back roads and the geography of South Jersey very well other soldiers under colonel cadwalader had already occupied allentown in town where Vandana ups actions had encamped the day before in addition to looking for Hashes some of whom were hiding and farmhouses in the area. The continentals rounded up tores. who had given aid to the enemy during British occupation as Washington committed the continental army to New Jersey? Here's easy. He was not confident that he could hold it against what the British might throw at him. He kept most of the Army's baggage in Newtown Pennsylvania and he left General Lord Stirling in command of the baggage sterling had participated in the first crossing and had comported himself well but he fell ill under the harsh conditions and was no condition to participate in the second crossing. He was left in command of the other soldiers who were also too you sick to remain on active duty but not sick enough that they had to be sent to Philadelphia for care. Washington also organized boats at each of the various ferry very crossings. Less the army be forced to make a hasty retreat in the face of overwhelming force. Some of the continental officers thought that they should go on on the offensive immediately. Attacked Princeton Washington however opted to occupy Trenton. Again and await the British response. They're like the hashes before them. The American saw little point in trying to fortify the town itself. There were no natural barriers or defensive positions positions for any sort of siege. Washington took up residence in a building downtown but the Americans plan to meet the British on the hill. Just below low town across as Pink Creek the hill with the creek on one flank and the woods on the other provided a defensible position for a frontal assault on the other hand. If the enemy wanted to work his way around that hill and hit them from the back the defenders would be in big trouble. The the narrow bridge provided the main avenue for treat and that could be easily cut off by the enemy to avoid such a trap. Washington deployed soldiers all all over the region. He sent cavalry patrols up all major and minor roads looking for signs of the enemy. He personally questioned some captured enemy. Deserters and prisoners word spread that he would pay hard money for any tips or any other helpful information about the enemy he also deployed soldiers usually with artillery at any. Ford's where the enemy might potentially cross. It took Lord Cornwallis a couple of days in New York City to to assemble his forces who were camped in and around the city. He began with a long one day forced march a New Year's Day. Seventeen seventy seven from from New York to Princeton about fifty miles along with the forces already in the colony Cornwallis had at his disposal. A four so about ten thousand regulars and Haitians as well as thousands of more loyalist militia. If needed about eight thousand of those were concentrated in and around around Princeton after arriving late that evening Cornwallis assembled his officers for a council of war. He was not much interested in their advice as much as he was there to give them their orders he would take the bulk of his army. About six thousand soldiers. Straight down the post road to Trenton. And there he would take on the enemy directly others including car-o-van Don up who had joined Cornwallis at Princeton recommended two columns in a flanking maneuver so that they could push the continentals back from two sides Cornwallis however did not WanNa waste any time. He believed a short direct. Direct assault launched quickly would force the continentals to scatter or be crushed. He was not going to waste any time. The men would assemble that night. Eight and be prepared to March the next morning. January second Cornwallis had selected the best regiments of the Army a full complement of artillery including several large twelve pounder cannons and would rely on an overwhelming force and speed to hit the enemy. At first light. The college began marching arching. Even before some regiments had arrived in Princeton. There would be no delay they would have to catch up. Colonel von Don up sessions would be given the honor of leading the column British and Hessian officers and men alike. We're ready for a fight. Many thought the Christmas raid to be a sleazy tactic by Ryan uncivilized enemy. The Haitians were particularly embarrassed by the loss of Trenton and were more than ready to redeem their reputation. Done up told every man under his command that if they took any American prisoner they would receive fifty lashes. In other words. There would be no prisoners. There's all enemy. Combatants would be put to the sword or bayonet in preparing to meet the British response. Washington made use of local militia Russia. Who knew the area? Well he also as I said relied on numerous patrols to keep track of enemy movements the continental set up outposts. It's between Princeton and Trenton. Who could keep tabs on the enemy and harassed them when they moved before Cornwallis even arrived in Princeton? The Americans Americans had begun to engage the enemy there. Washington sent a force of about one thousand continentals and militia toward Princeton to engage the enemy and delay its advance the force included a few small artillery pieces. A few rifle regiments as well as some of his best. Infantry companies is this special force fell under the command of General Matthias. They Roche Fermoy. Fermoy was the first French officer to receive a general's commission from the Continental Congress. Unlike later French officers Fermoy came from Martinique. In the West indies. Not France France itself. He presented himself to Congress as a colonel of engineers in the French army. Not do any background checks. Congress took him at his word word and commissioned him a general in November seventeen seventy six and sent him off to Washington's Army for Moy had led a division at the first battle title of Trenton and by most accounts at commanded his division reasonably. Well a New Year's Eve the American set up a defensive position about halfway between Princeton and Trenton where the road crossed a small creek known as eight mile run. It was a good defensive position where the terrain made it difficult for a larger sure forced to flank the defenders or storm them enforce on the morning of January first a mixed force of light infantry and Hessian yeager under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Robert Abercromby moved down the road. Their goal was to sweep for any rebels before the main column advanced the following day the advanced force ran into the American defenders. Ed opened fire. The Americans held their positions and returned fire resulting in a pitched battle of several hours. The British were forced to bring in reinforcements of British Grenadiers before the Americans gave up their position.

"Be Willy t ribbs to the the bachelor the first african-american qualify for the five hundred. Because this guy was pretty good. He was working on a shoestring budget but he had some had some decent backers So that that was a little tragic in the what could have been a kind of scenario. They're coming out of Trenton yet. Now that you talk about him I definitely have heard my. Hi Dad. Talk about him in the past Real quick not necessarily a Trenton question. But because you brought it up How did the mini indy? Cars differ from the Super Vee cars of for Franken case. You didn't listen or any of our listeners. Forgot back in May we talk to now former. NHL Goalie Mike McKenna. Whose Dad was as Subaru driver? Back in the sixties seventies. I'm sorry Michael has to check with you on when when he raced. If I'm not mistaken the the mini indy and actually foremost super. Vee were. We're pretty much the same formula. It's just there were sanctioned by different Wadis there you have it Usak Mini Indy. But it was essentially the same thing as a formula Super Vee and there are a lot of really good any car racers who came up through super vague Michael Andretti Bill Elsa Rick mears his. Name's like that And the I think they just read the Usak once you sang by Usak. We're called mini the than the SEC had their formula Super Vee and then they later had gotten Robert Bosch Company to sponsor the series in the sea When Cart Kinda took over from USAK as the primary sanctioning body for the indy cars But I don't believe there's a whole lot of difference and I'm sure there's a couple of old timers out there who will correct me and tell me I'm totally wrong that spectrum but as far ars I know the many very similar to the supervie's let's We'll wrap up our our trend. speedway addition addition. Here with the you know what led to the demise of Trenton speedway now you mentioned conor will lead to the demise from from the NASCAR perspective the but what led it to now become a ups shipping facility and housing a cramped housing development in Trenton New Jersey. Well there's a lot of contributing factors there if you look at The fate of say Riverside in Ontario California. It's very similar to what happened to trend. uh-huh as urban sprawl kind of moved in and again trying to sandwiched between New York City and Philadelphia. Real estate values were much higher therefore redevelopment than they are to have a have a racetrack. They would sit there Dormant for most of the year until the state fair came around pocono played a part in the demise. We had A. It sounds weird to say. Oakland wasn't ultra-modern facility to Trenton. They say that today with the POCONOS got knocked. It'd be a little behind the ties. But you know back back in the early seventies and you you know what's POCO open their doors. That you sack was there right away and So you've got the kind of geographical area covered fan so the crowd started and the The other contributing factor was they were looking to move the state. Okay Fair from Trenton to Sussex County which happened in I wanNA say nineteen eighty three which was about two years after the the track close but they went ahead and sold the track and the entirety other state fairgrounds to private developers. A few other things that factored into this might be seventy six. The when he figured stay fairgrounds state money coming into their right in nineteen seventy six. There's a lot of state money that went into build giant stadium to attract both New York giants and the New York jets to play new New Jersey up in the meadowlands Then in nineteen eighty. They built the Basketball Stadium there to track the New Jersey Nets and the New Jersey devils. So he's got state. Money is being funneled. A that way. Farther up north and SORTA little less going into Trenton. That combined with the the real estate prices going up to where it's more lucrative just to sell it The state money and the dwindling crowds all kind of off an apartment. There so a lot of folks will tell you that various nothing. Nothing you can see that will tell. Are you a speedway used to be there but there are a few things you can look at If you go to the next to the the UPS facility. There's a nice nice little a second meditation garden. It's called the Grounds for sculpture as a Lotta sculpture. A lot of Greenery and plants and whatnot. It's just a nice little place place. There's a little part in the middle and it's these sculpture court. Now when they pulled the grand stands out in the still. We're talking about this concrete foundation that they couldn't they wouldn't pull out when they moved the track in the fifties So they still didn't pull that concrete foundation out so they so they built the grounds for sculpture These sculpture court right over the top of the concrete foundation so he footprints of these sculptured court is the contour of ask from Trenton. Other than other than that. There's not a lot you can. I see some folks. There's a street in the suburb. That used to be the front straightaway. I mean it's been paved over so many times and whatnot. It's it's it's not the same with I. I really don't see that you can see that there. But the the Sculpture Court still has the contour of the original grandstand there. So if you can kind of visualize it when he's when you save you could stand in there. Ignore all the sculpture in imagine a racetrack. Being there you can maybe feel it but otherwise otherwise it's You know there's nothing left you know urban development there's a nice Housing silty a big. UPS thing I went to I went to the last indycar races at Trenton. And those were nights you seventy nine when the cart series had three races that year. I watch the double header event in June. Bobby one one. Both of those Ask the time I was there. The facilities were you know obviously suffering from some lack of upkeep and whatnot that all factors into that state money being funneled up to the meadowlands for for football basketball and hockey which was drawing more folks and racing so But again Trenton has left an indelible and indelible Galvin Marketing Race to you know to sit and talk with Mario Sit and talk with. Aj or sit and talk with other guys that have one. They're like you know Gordon Johncock and even Bobby Unser Rick mears won the final race at Trenton They'll all have fun memories. Yeah I've got a picture from. Aj's less when they're hanging on my wall here in in the office it's Such a cool track to talk about Frank thanks very much for the history lesson on on trend here. I think we'll we'll talk Langhorne next In the near future here but I hope everybody appreciated this and enjoyed the Nazar speedway edition and As well and we'll be back with more these throughout the off season. Thanks very much frank. Thank you appreciate having me on no problem art..

"Welcome to another lost track edition of in Parlay. My name is host. Mike Jokam joining me to you. Talk a trend speedway today and I'm sure he'll be back to talk. Some of these other trucks here is frank. Santa Rosa Frank. Thanks for joining me tonight in Mike any appreciate that the offer. Great to have you on for those who I don't know frank has a great motor sports. podcast called drafting circuits You you may have heard me on there some point earlier this year last year but Today were were here to talk. Trenton speedway which is or it used to be about ten miles from where I grew up. Right in Trenton. New Jersey. So Frank Where do we start when we talk about trends speedway well Trenton? speedway actually one of the oldest tracks On the planet. You know the oldest old tracks A lot of your early Oval Oval tracks in the United States began horse racing facilities. Now Trenton just a seventeen year Trenton. If you're not familiar with New Jersey trend is in central roll West New Jersey. It's about oh about half an hour from Philadelphia a little over an hour from New York City. So it's between it's a big population. Centers and New Jersey has a large population of its own with Trenton being Pretty well populated city as the capital of New Jersey The track was put together in nineteen hundred again for basically for horse racing but in that same year they built the tracks they did have their first auto arrays which was more of a kind of a curiosity The automobile was still very new. A lot of people had never seen one in their life. So this was more of like you know. Get your first look at the amazing new horseless carriage You know But but that was the first Motor Motor sports event at Trenton in nineteen hundred but racy really Kinda didn't catch on there till about Oh nineteen twelve. They use it for a horse racing. They they had a couple of races here and there Between Nineteen O five nights. You know eight but in nineteen twelve. They started hosting auto racing regularly now. Trenton is part of the New Jersey State. fairgrounds and auto racing at the State Fair. All across the country became pretty much the rage in the in the early Nineteen tents and whatnot so They they they continued. Take on racing. The the A half mile dirt oval They ended up building grandstands there And and and raced you know during the state fair and then on occasional weekends here and they're true the year until nineteen forty one when with World War Two Auto racing issue was bad across the United States as you know. Every manufacturer was Raila whatever's towards the war effort so Like like every other track in the NATA saved they decided dormant until nineteen forty six and they reopened the track and they they expanded the half Mile Oval to a one mile oval. Now the interesting thing they did here was they. Actually they move the track a little bit. They changed the profile. Attract back to get that one mile oval in there but they didn't move the grand stance Because there is a concrete foundation under the grandstands it was pretty easy to move the tracks little heart and move the grants and so you had this really odd viewing angle in the turn one to two area Where were you? Were the spectators rather far from the track. And the you know the the the profile of the new track didn't match the profile of the all tracks but the grandstand mashed profile. The old track. That was not fair But folks got used to it and as racing kind of You know picked up there in nineteen forty. Nine was the first time we saw the indy cars which were called the championship. Cars then raced on the dirt there. didn't come back They were you know transition more mortar pavement but there were a lot of modified races and run which brown kind of things But what they in nineteen fifty seven. I believe they went ahead and pave the track and which brought the champ cars cars back For good and the champ cars raced at least twice a year in some years three times a year all the way until the track closed in nineteen eighty the last races there were nineteen. Seventy nine In that in that stretch of having the champ cars we you know we saw a lot of great races and again sometimes you know two times a year sometimes three times a year. But the the master of Trenton was a young man named. Aj foy. And I know that some of you folks that enjoying the corporation have heard of him But he had never heard of him. Yeah so but yeah. But he he was a king of Trenton. And then this other young fellow who didn't live that far away was the prison tread. Mario Andretti also WANNA. I believe Mario won in seven races of Trenton. Major one twelve so those guys really had figured out So we continued on the pay. One Mile will For Uh for a decade until they want to expand this thing to what you call superspeedway latch which was mile and a half. Now all the confines of the real estate there's a housing development over on the other side of the track so they couldn't just Kinda you know just expand the thing in a straight line so they essentially bent the track. Give it this kidney bean shaped so. There's a dogleg on the back straps. It's not a Dogleg. In the traditional sense Dogleg is inverted. So you've got an oval with a pronounced right turn. That was made it a little interesting for guys to set up but the guys who had figured out the old track figured out the new track again. We're talking Mario and we're talking AJ So Yeah that that track continued on until the demise by then a little bit. But I don't want to do all the talking talking. I want to see what kind of things you throw at me yet. No it's funny you mentioned the For lack of a better term here the kidney he being shaved Started in nineteen sixty nine that you were just talking about sixty which appeared in that indy. Five hundred hundred Historical Ish video game that was on the original xbox a number of years ago it was considered pretty dangerous. If I'm not mistaken correct for the guys who didn't figure it out. Well the thing was excuse me all right was dangerous then Training was no more or less dangerous than other tracks. As a matter of fact there's only three deaths for the INDYCAR guys That have been And then one is a very interesting story. Jimmie reese Either nineteen fifty eight that was prior to the kidney. Bean shaped but Jimmie reese had been involved in an accident earlier that year at the Indianapolis Motor speedway the accident. That took the life of Pat O'Connor Now another driver name Eh Eh. Deletion was widely blamed for this accident. However Jimmie reese fail to little at fault and when it came came down to it when when his car was slipping away with in front of him he kinda brakes really hard which collected some guy behind him Now when Dan Rea said his accident Trenton when his car was getting way he he didn't break or slow he kinda kept his foot in it which which watched him over the fence and cost him his life now. Some folks say that he was you know had learned that lesson. I didn't want to didn't want to collect other guys behind. But we'll never be able to ask him because he lost his life crash. But that's kind of kind of odd little undertone story there But but as far as you know was was the kidney bean shaped dangerous more dangerous than than other tracks when it comes to. I mean sure there were some guys who couldn't figure it out But I mean if you look at if you look at the stats look at the speeds at Trenton You know not not a lot of guys I mean when you compare to place like Langhorn which would chew up guys. Spit them out. Or even if you compare it to the Indianapolis speedway which would lose guys is Left and right and sometimes you know two and three guys in the same race meeting Trends no more dangerous than anywhere else but it was just it was interesting it was different. It was hard to set your car up for. 'cause this is. This isn't a time where the guys were running primarily ovals all the time so they put a lot of stagger a lot of staggering at tires to make turn left really well but the trend had a you know it wasn't it wasn't just a little writer and it was. It was a straight up right. Turn in the middle of that back extra away. So the the old video and pictures I've been able to find are are pretty remarkable You touched on. Aj Foyer. And I'm looking at the winners list. Here one two three four five times in a row between night April nineteen sixty three in July nineteenth of nineteen sixty four at Trenton and For those listening posts these pictures on our social media after the episode is released My great grandfather got some a picture of Eddie Sachs in a victory lane in nineteen or the early nineteen sixties I have a extra from nineteen sixty. Do Three in victory lanes miracle photos Trenton. And yes we will definitely talk Langhorne in the upcoming weeks as the other Even more local tracks To to me here so you know talking. More about Trenton. In addition to the Kidney Bean one of the turns from Pocono was modeled after Trenton. If I'm not mistaken correct. SS correctly the terms of token are modeled after Milwaukee Indianapolis and try and turn one is trending turn to is Indianapolis and Turn Street. Is Milwaukee But it's interesting that you bring up Pocono because Pocono was actually poconos built in nineteen seventy one But Tokyo title had a little bit to do with The demise of Trenton Based on the yeah there about an hour apart Trenton actually did host NASCAR They the only house in the May Times I believe I don't number one. They didn't draw crowd Folks preferred the oil cars to these stock cars. Stock cars really didn't didn't catch on nationwide until much later but once Pocono was up and running The NASCAR guys which even cup series now is called all the grand national series then decided to to move their date that they had reserved for Trenton to Pocono The last Nascar Qarase was in nineteen seventy two at Trenton and in nineteen seventy four. They debuted focused on. They've been having Quite good success at Pocono ever since they did the NASCAR'S I was gonNA call them the grand nationals did the NASCAR's have any different struggle with the kidney. Bean tape than the indy. Cars did very similar struggle. Getting you guys. That are running primarily all ovals you know other than the occasional Asian trip to riverside which where they set up a car for a road course.

"trenton" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast

"Colonel Raw received achieved a report that the Americans were on both sides of town cutting off all avenues of retreat. Now at the time he received this report that was not entirely true. The Americans had not yet captured the stone bridge over ASS and Pink Creek. If role had rallied his men and retreated across the bridge he would have had a good defensive position he could have retreated east up a hill where he would have been better able to defend against the American attack. Indeed the only British soldiers in Trenton were twenty mounted or goons who turned tail and got out of town as fast as they could across. Does that vary bridge a significant number of Hessian camp followers. That's women and children who were traveling with the army also fled across the bridge before Sullivan's division could secure it but even if we're all had no that the bridge was still open. His instinct was not to retreat. He wanted one or two charge. The American lines and scattered the enemy like many other professional soldiers of the day. He believed the undisciplined. Americans would flee at EH daring counterattack. His experience in New York and New Jersey had confirmed. This view role sent the bulk of his assemble brigade. North through through an apple orchard with the intent of charging up a hill and into the American Center at the same time Heche artillery push north up King Street in in an attempt to push back the continental advance there in response to this Washington deployed several companies to the right of roles advancing forces. If he tried to cross up the hill his men would be mowed down from two sides. At the same time Knox's continental artillery continued to fire down King and Queen Streets Knox's artillery had improved with months of combat experience. Captain Alexander Hamilton. Who you may recall had given really embarrassing performance in his attempt to fire his cannon on the British ships sailing up the Hudson River a few months earlier now expertly used his guns against is the enemy? When a gun carriage broke on one of Knox's guns he ordered nearby infantry to charge enemy gun with swords and bayonets the Hessian artillery had advanced to four without sufficient infantry support the continentals charged into enemy fire to capture those two cannons? They then turn the guns around and continued firing on the enemy. The Americans who took part in that charge received several serious wounds both captain Washington and Lieutenant Monroe suffered serious wounds as a result of the charge. Monroe particularly suffered a severed artery in the shoulder. Her he very likely would fled to death on the field. But for the services of Dr Reicher. Who else mentioned had join them? Overnight Dr Rikers quick action. Stop the bleeding and save the future president from an untimely death. The continentals fought with an aggressiveness and speed. Did that surprise. The enemy perhaps one benefit of the many men who deserted the continental army in the weeks prior to battle was that those who did remained and where the hard core and most committed the Americans fought with a fury rushing the enemy at every opportunity. The heavens took dozens thousands of casualties while inflicting very few on the attackers. The hashes fell back again into town as multiple continental brigades. Press them on on several fronts. Colonel Raw finally considered retreating over the bridge to the south. But by this time it really was too late the continentals had secured secured the bridge backed up with cannon. As role ordered his men to fall back he took two shots in his side and had to be carried off the field. He would live until evening when he finally expired. After the battle had ended with the loss of Rawal and several other officers the two regiments passions. WHO had at advanced into the orchard and then began to fall back had decided they had enough rose second command? I tried to find a place to force I through the lines and get to the Princeton road but after he realized this was not gonNa work. You ordered his men to lay down their arms and surrender. Many of the Hessian soldiers disgusted with the idea of surrendering to these rebels. Smashed their muskets on the ground and slashed their equipment this denied its use by the enemy and avoided the indignity of turning over the weapons to the enemy. A few soldiers fled back into town and hidden. Various buildings to be captured later other was a third regiment of Russians the Knipe Housing Regiment. That was still in town after their comrades surrendered these. These remaining men attempted to retreat south across the stone bridge. But as I said by this time Sullivan's division had already taken control of the bridge edge and cut it off as an avenue of retreat. These remaining Haitians then tried to move up the creek to look for a spot where they could Ford across it. However the Americans kept up with them on the other side of the creek continuing their fire more Americans came through town surrounding this last Hessian Regiment? The Acting Commander of this regiment major deck out suffered a mortal wound and suggested that the regiment surrender. Some of his other officers objected and Deco told him they could do whatever they wanted and he left the regiment and walk back to town to surrender. After a a few more minutes of trying to find a place to cross the creek the final regiment which found itself surrounded finally lay down their arms and surrendered to the Americans reckons. The fighting lasted somewhere between forty five and ninety minutes accounts on this differ. But the American victory was pretty complete they had killed or captured. Most of the combat troops in Trenton. Only twenty two died in the actual battle with another eighty three wounded ended but about nine hundred were captured. They also captured six Hessian field cannon ammunition and a wealth of supplies next week a victorious. General Washington has to decide what he wants to do. Next hi thanks for joining the American Waken Revolution. PODCAST after show today. I WanNa thank Mike Hager for stepping up and joining the Robert Morris Circle on patron Mike because actually been a big supporter of the show for many months now at the Privy Council level but recently joined the Robert Morris Circle the highest level of patriotic on support for this podcast. Thanks Mike I really appreciate you helping to make this show possible. I'm recording this episode of few weeks ahead of time. Time the date this episode releases November Sixteenth Twenty Nineteen. I will be down at History Camp Virginia for a presentation Shen on the politics of independence. The other thing that will have happened by then is the announcement of History Camp Philadelphia. We are finally highly getting history Camp Philadelphia on May second twenty twenty the constitution highschool in Old Town philly which is a school that focuses on history. History has agreed to give us the space to hold history camp over the weekend. This will be a great opportunity for anyone in the area either to give a presentation and we're just listened to many of those that will be given. The great thing about history. Camp is that it is open to anyone. Many of us have spent much of our adult lives reading and learning about all different aspects of history. History camp gives us a chance to share that knowledge with other enthusiasts history camp covers all aspects of history not just the revolution. I know there will be some really great revolution topics. They're just based on some of the authors authors who have already expressed an interest in attending however I actually plan to present on an interesting topic. That's not from the revolution. My topic will be the Philadelphia Bible. Riots of eighteen forty four should be a really awesome day. One shortcoming of our location though is is that space is going to be rather limited. So if you do WANNA go be sure to order your tickets early. I've started a facebook page for history Camp Philadelphia and there should be more information appearing on the history camp dot org webpage later this week but again mark your calendars for May second twenty twenty. So this week we covered the first battle of Trenton which begins fighting in what is sometimes called the ten most crucial crucial days of the American revolution. Those are the days from December. Twenty fifth seventeen seventy six. When Washington I crosses the Delaware River through January third when the continentals fight the battle of Princeton out last week we covered the crossing the Delaware on the twenty fifth? Today Day we cover the Battle of Princeton on the twenty sixth. But don't worry it's not come take us ten episodes to get through all ten of those days. The next eight days will will be covered in a mere three episodes but the reason those ten days are really considered so crucial and why I am devoting so much time to it on. The podcast fast is because the continental army and the Patriot movement. More generally was on the verge of dying when those days began on December twenty fifth and by January third it had a new lease on life at a real chance of going the distance. That is why we give so close attention to those ten in crucial days for those of you who want an even closer look. I'm recommending a book with that same name. Ten crucial days Washington's ends vision for victory unfolds by William L.. Kidder as you might guess from the title the book goes into great detail specifically about that time period beginning on December twenty fifth and ending on January third. The book is very thorough covering that short time period with over three hundred pages of content not counting notes and index. It's not as much a narrative a book like the one. I recommended last week on a similar topic David Hackett officiers Washington's crossing this book ten crucial days reads a little bit more. Like a timeline going into detail about exactly what is happening. Hitting each day in various theatres the book itself is relatively new having just been released last year twenty eighteen. For that reason. It's actually able to take advantage of some of the additional research and information that has come out about the battles since two thousand four when the book. I recommended last week fishers. Washington's crossing was published the author William Kidder for Larry to his friends has written a number of books books on New Jersey history. He's retired history teacher and has been a longtime volunteer at the Howell. Living History farm which is near Washington's it's crossing. I also had the privilege of listening to a lecture of his at my local American revolution. Roundtable a few months ago my online recommendation. This week is a website of the same name. Ten crucial days dot Org. The site is run by Roger Williams who is a Patriot supporter of this show at the Privy Council level. His site covers the same critical period as Mr Kidder's book from Washington's Crossing on the twenty fifth to the battle of Princeton on the third. The site has lots of great information about those events and is tied to the many parks and museums in the area. If you you ever plan to visit Washington's crossing you really should visit ten crucial days dot Org as part of planning your visit. Well that's offer this week. I hope you will join me again next week. For another American Revolution podcast..

"Hello thank you for joining the American Revolution Today. Episode One twenty three the first battle of Trenton. Last week we left General Washington with his army of about twenty four hundred continentals having just crossed the Delaware River. This was less than half the force. I think he had planned for the overall campaign other crossings. downriver filled because of the weather Washington's own force was hours behind schedule making a dawn attack on Trenton. Impossible Washington sent to advance parties to move ahead of the main columns and set up. Roadblocks looks about three miles. Outside of Trenton. Each party had about forty men with orders to keep anyone from entering or leaving Trenton. Who might warn the enemy of the Continental Army's approach Captain William Washington a distant cousin of the general let one of these advanced parties assisted by his lieutenant? James Monroe. The future president was a veteran of the New York campaign but had been a college sophomore a year earlier as the company blockaded the roads the dogs from a nearby home alerted and began to bark the owner doctor. James Reicher heard his dogs and assumed the men on the road were Haitians. Raker came out to cuss the men and tell them to leave. I always kind of pictured Dr rikers being some cranky old man. Dan Yelling get off my lawn but he really was only in his late thirties. Dr Acre soon discovered that the men on the road where continental soldiers and consessions as a la- wig breaker. Then all in tears you join the company for the evening if figured there would soon be a fight and that his as medical services would be needed. Meanwhile General Washington was trying to get his main force deployed in order to prepare for the morning attack. Because because General Ewing's forces had failed to cross at Trenton falls Washington had to divide his force into two divisions Washington sent one division under General Sullivan. To move down. Delaware River road and move around the south of Trenton and attack from the South West. This had been the original mission that was given to General Ewing. Meanwhile the second division under General Nathaniel Greene would move inland and then to the south where they they would attack. Trenton from the northeast Washington and the bulk of the artillery. Under Colonel Knox moved with General Green Knox had managed managed to get eighteen cannon across the river much more artillery than a forced this size would normally take Knox had also brought with him. Extra artilleryman Hillary men with the hope of capturing several Hessian cannon by surprise and turning them on the enemy even with horses the cannon moved slowly and with great difficulty over the icy roads. Most guns weighed between one thousand two thousand pounds with much more weight from the ammunition than accompanied them when the army finally began to move around. Four A M. The men trudged along slowly. The weather was still a miserable mix of rain rain and snow. which got even heavier along with what some described as hurricane force winds walking in such weather was miserable enough but add to the fact that these men had been up all night? Many did not have shoes and most had well worn clothes. That did not keep out the cold. At least two men would literally freeze to death on the march to Trenton before anyone fired a shot. The army marched up hill for several. Oh Miles before hitting a flatter plain they then faced Jacob's creek at the bottom of a one hundred foot ravine. The soldiers had to spend hours hours lowering the cannon into the ravine then pulling them to the other side and back up the other side of the ravine throughout the March general Washington in Rhode up and down the column which stretched out for over a mile urging the men to keep quiet and stay close to their officers around seven thirty. AM The main columns caught up with the advance forces. Despite the efforts to keep the march secret dozens of local militia men turned out to support the continentals roles in their attack. Of course that also meant that local. Tories were very much aware of the march and had slipped past the continental roadblocks to warn the Hessian continental pickets soon saw fifty armed men approaching their lines from Trenton. It turned out. This was a raiding party that continental general Adam Stephen had set out on Christmas Eve a few days earlier. The Haitians had shot and killed one of Stephen's soldiers on the river. Stephen dispatched this rating party. Before he learned of Washington's plans with instructions to do a hit and run on Trenton. In revenge for the shooting the men had attacked earlier that night. While Washington's army was still crossing the Delaware River the detachment remained in the area overnight and was now returning after first light back toward the river upon hearing this report general Washington was livid. Any hope of surprise was now completely gone. The Trenton troops would be on full alert after such an attack Washington. Some General Stephen Empty rated him for ruining all of of his plans. It was another one of the very few occasions when anyone ever saw the normally imperturbable Washington. Lose his temper. Washington and Stephen had known each other for decades and did not get along for most of that time. Stephen had been Washington. Second in command of Virginia Jinyan militia forces during the French and Indian war while Washington attempted to develop the manners and behavior of gentleman. Stephen fell into the stereotype of a backwoods militia officer with as hard fighting drinking and refusal to obey orders after the French and Indian war. Stephen even ran against Washington for the house of Burgess and lost. He also competed against Washington in Western. Land speculation so there was not a lot of love. Lost between these two men. Now Stephen who was a continental general had destroyed the element of surprise by allowing this raid aid. Even if he had ordered the raid before knowing of Washington's plans his failure to recall the men or even informed general Washington of the raid was inexcusable Washington. Now expected to find an alert enemy fully entrenched and awaiting the American attack with only half Afghan forces. He thought he would have. Washington did not even have a considerable numerical advantage over the enemy. Despite all this Washington could not turn around now. He was going to make this attack regardless of the situation after regaining his composure. He invited the fifty men to join his column despite his anger at General Stephen the men had only obeyed orders and carried out a brave attack. Not Knowing about the larger campaign pain Washington complimented the men and resumed his advance inside Trenton. The HESSIAN garrison had every reason to anticipate eight attack as I mentioned last week. British general grant had sent a note to the commander Colonel Johann Rall that intelligence indicated Washington Santon might attempt an attack on Trenton even if Raleigh ignored that report on Christmas Eve. Two American deserters told raw that the continental salarmy was preparing to March the next day as continentals prepared to cross the Delaware River. A Tory physician came to tell raw that a an attack on Trenton was imminent another local farmer also reported the same to roll. Some stories have circulated over the years. About how Washington managed to win at Trenton and one is that the Hashes were drunk or hung over from too much Christmas celebration. There's actually no evidence. Evidence of significant drunkenness. There's also a story that Colonel Role received a note on Christmas night warning him of the attack but that he was is playing cards and simply stuck the note in his pocket without reading it. There's again no good contemporary evidence that that story is true. Either the truth is that raw. A professional officer was well aware from several reports that there could be an enemy attack. He had kept his soldiers on high alert. The men slept in their uniforms with guns. By their sides they had been called out on high alert for each of the three days prior the Hashes. Were not trunk but were exhausted from being on constant alert for the enemy. It's also said that role was dismissive of the Americans and it did not bother to post proper defenses. It is true that he did not have his soldiers dig proper entrenchments around town however it was. It's the middle of winter with frozen ground and he had only been in Trenton for less than two weeks. Roy was also concerned because he wasn't sure where he should dig. entrenchments since Americans might be attacking from any direction role was confident that his professional soldiers could meet the enemy on the field and did not need entrenchments however he did not leave himself open to surprise. He had a ring out posts stationed about a mile from the center. The town with reinforced attachments at each outpost raw himself visited those outposts on Christmas Day to ensure there were no problems he would certainly here if any of the outpost came under attack and would have time to turn out his men in the event of such an attack two things however however that have been difficulties for Washington actually ended up working in Washington's favour the terrible winter storm that hit Christmas night which made the March so difficult and which soaked his soldiers and dampened their powder also convinced the Haitians that no one would be out in such a storm for the first time in nearly week the officers let their men stay indoors most of the time they cancelled the full pre dawn daily patrols roles because there was no way anyone would be able to pass through that storm. Second was the Christmas night attack by Stephen Small raiding party those fifty or so Virginians had struck the outpost north west of town and wounded. Perhaps a half dozen hashes before riding off into the night rather than put the headphones on high alert role simply assume that the small raid was the big raid that everyone had been warning him about is men mostly Asli remained indoors seeking shelter from the high winds. Snow Sleet and freezing rain. They would keep any sane person off the roads just after eight eight. Am Washington further divided. Greene's division into three columns although it was now well after daylight. The Heavy Storm Kept The heavens from venturing entering very far after the Stephen raid the night before Lieutenant Andreas witter halt took command of a Hessian guard a few miles outside of town even with the reinforcements the total guard was only about two dozen men. Their purpose was to warn of another raid not to defend against an all all out attacked by a major force as I said before dawn. The HESSIAN usually deployed their patrols to march out and make sure there was no threat but for the prior few weeks the Heche had been cost. An alert looking for raiders. Who might pick off a few men? Not An all out invasion a sometime ABC's patrols would have gone all the way down to the ferries at the Delaware River but as I said on the morning of December twenty six. The storm was so miserable the the patrol only went out a few miles and not finding anything they returned to get indoors and warm themselves. The still falling snow limited rated the visibility of these outposts and patrols so the Haitians did not have much warning as Washington personally led the center column against the Hessian outpost at the Cooper shop. The Americans might have actually captured the outpost. But for the fact that Lieutenant Witter Holt happened to step outside ride and saw the approaching soldiers the small outpost I suspected the approaching men might be another raiding party. In that case a few volleys would probably chase ace off the attackers. So the two sides exchanged fire at long range with no casualties. At that point though witter whole realized that the force source in front of him was much larger and that there were two other attacking brigades on his right and left. He ordered his men to retreat. In order to avoid loyd being surrounded the Hessian outpost began a steady retreat back toward town but keeping up a line of fire as they retreated around the same time Washington began his attack north of town. He heard cannon fire coming from the South General Sullivan's division had reached its objective around around the same time the coordinated two pronged attack actually worked his planned. The Americans began to push back all the outposts both both on the north and south sides of town at the same time American cannon from Pennsylvania side of the river opened up fire on the town from the West. As far as I can tell. This is the first documented plan I know of where two groups literally synchronized their watches before the attack. So that both could begin the attack at the exact same time. Even with this effort it was a miracle that both divisions got into position at the same time the the Hessian regiments entrenched turned out in a matter of minutes forming lines and preparing to return fire. The soldiers poured out of the buildings half dressed and prepared to meet the enemy. Hessian cannons quickly deployed against the two main roads into town forcing the attackers off the roads and into the fields. Next to them colonel raw was still asleep when an aide woke him he quickly dressed and tried to figure out what was happening. The Americans fired on the town of Trenton as they advanced because of the long wet march though many of their muskets misfired but sufficient patient shots especially when combined with the artillery fire which tended to be more reliable in wet conditions managed to create chaos for the Hessian defenders. There's soldiers could not find their officers. Many men simply ran into the streets and began firing and those not taking shelter. Were quickly cut down. A few civilians were also killed or wounded as they scrambled for shelter. Some hashing accounts say they took fire from civilians. Who took shot at the soldiers from windows? This to me seems unlikely since the soldiers almost certainly would have stormed such a house and killed everyone inside other accounts say Hessian riflemen took positions in the upper stories of houses to shoot at the enemy and that to.
