She was traded back to the Union for confederate general. Just before the end of the war after the war she became a writer and lecturer supporting such issues as health. Care Temperance women's rights and dress reform for women. She was frequently arrested for wearing men's clothing and insisted on a right-to-work clothing that she thought was appropriate. She wrote two books discussed women's ride I'd Andress. She replied to criticism of her attire. I don't wear men's clothes. I wear my own clothes. She was also the only woman to to receive the medal of honor. Walker was a member of the central woman. Suffrage Bureau in Washington and solicited funds to endow share for Female Mel Professor at Howard University Medical School. She attempted to register to vote in eighteen seventy one but was turned away initial stance to the movement following. Her lead was to claim that women already had the right to vote and congress needed only to enact enabling legislation upgrade number fruitless years advocating this position the movement promoted the adoption of a constitutional amendment in one thousand nine seven Walker published crowning constitutional argument argument in which she argued that some states as well as a federal constitution had already granted women the right to vote. She testified on on Women's suffrage before committees of the US House of Representatives in nineteen twelve nineteen fourteen. Ironically her death in nineteen nineteen came one year before the passage of the nineteenth amendment to the United States Constitution which granted women the right to vote next on. Our Echo is another a woman mentioned the name Freon and you might say oh. Yeah John C.. freemont explorer. Yeah I know him and you'd be right in eighteen. Fifty fifty six fremont anti-slavery position was instrumental in his being chosen as the first ever Republican candidate for president but John Fremont it didn't really discover anything that hasn't been discovered already but he had a knack for publicity header his wife. Jessie she played an extremely streamline active role in campaigning. Rallying support for husband one particular campaign slogan read Fremont and Jesse to her father other however a life long Democrat refused to endorse her husband's bid for the presidency remember he was running as Republicans she was considered the first lady in the land title. Her admirers continued to use throughout her life. One of the most impressive feats of her political career came shortly after Fremont lost his position during the civil war for issuing his own edict of emancipation similarly free all the slaves and Missouri which antedated gated. Lincoln's own emancipation. Proclamation Jesse actually traveled to Washington and pleaded with Lincoln on behalf of her husband but to no avail after the war they moved to New York and California in the paddock financial panic of eighteen.

Europe's last-ditch attempt to save Iran nuclear deal

"Iran has announced. It's going to start a weapons-grade. Plutonium plant aunt this comes after a last ditch attempt was made to save the Tehran nuclear deal yesterday Britain France Germany Russia and China met in Vienna to discuss the joint comprehensive plan of Action The J. C. P. O. a forged in two thousand MM fifteen and put at risk when Donald Trump withdrew the U._s. from it in May last year since then Washington has reimposed punishing sanctions against Tehran Iran has disregarded limits the deal set on its nuclear program and now says it will escalate the program well here to tell us more is David Pacheco's who is author of nuclear Iran the birth of an atomic state David. Thanks for joining us. Do we know how this meeting unfolded. It's very very good to be here this morning. <hes> I mean things are still ongoing but early signs of positive. The key takeaway keeping to understand about this meeting is that everybody wants it to succeed. Nobody wants at this meeting. which is the five <hes> I mean the nuclear deal with Iran and the P five plus one? That's the Security Council plus Germany. Everyone is in that room except the United States and everyone where on one side and the security remaining Security Council plus Germany one bed to be breakthrough they want these negotiate succeed so far we've heard about you know tend to cautious optimism <hes> but the fact remains that without American the rumors gains would be very difficult to make a real breakthrough but what about these reports that the talks has in fact failed Iran is pushing forward with its nuclear enrichment program like I mean Iran is like heavily signaling hair. <hes> Iran obviously doesn't mean he's pulling the lines tale. It's trying to get the the you know the European the Chinese he's an Russians to to help them to try and go back the guys Jackie Zabel but I would say that the talks failed. I mean we're still I'm still hearing you know tentatively positive stuff Iran gangs what Iran does and his gang as say the lion's tail and undo what Kansas your attention to itself and grand standards and people in the hines I mean this is a very old boy to understand globally while he's doing. It's for domestic appeal so what he wants to do is eventually goes to the shaking table and <hes> give concessions and in order to do that. It has to be seen to be standing up to the Great Satan in little safer note. Whatever so we very much sort of Iran type phase of STIGMATA signaling negotiation so we know that the relationship between Iran and Europe has been and put under further strain after the activities in the state of a mood or in the Strait of all moons British authorities as we know have detained an Iranian oil tanker of the the coast of Gibraltar because of the alleged violations of of European Union sanctions Iranian Union forces impounded a British flagship? Are these incidents being linked to the deal. Oh absolutely I mean there's an immediate context of the wider context so you Iran's seizure of of of the British time <hes> O._B.. With no British citizens on Oh boy is an immediate contents types of Britain seizing of an Iranian tanker Nazir Alter the one of the context this is all about the needs <hes> they want to you know get into sort of Adana with the Europeans I wanted to essentially get going again. They essentially sort of pushing pushing pushing the game of brinkmanship but this is all very much go of getting back to the table and getting those sanctions lifted and getting that deal back in place but unfortunately without the Americans. It's all pretty much academic united our European nations in their desire to save the deal. I mean as Britain faces the the idea of a no deal brexit.

"union forces" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk

"Available now. How then does one govern the seemingly on governable spare a thought for those who are trying in two thousand twelve Somalia's first parliament for more than twenty years was sworn in amid tight security at Mogadishu airport in two thousand seventeen that parliament elected Somalia's current president Mohammed Abdullah Mohammed better known as Joe. I'll next guest Hussein Shaykh Ali is former national security advisor to the president of Somalia, and now, chairman of the Huron institute, he joins us from Mogadishu sane, Somalia is very commonly depicted in foreign media, not least in this program as absolutely lawless and ungovernable, how close to reality is that. Well, I think it's been the case for the wire, but since two thousand nine Amalia have beaten on the track over copy, and the every day every month on air. There was an incremental improvement both on governance and security. So in that period, if we reflect all ten years from two thousand nine to now, what kind of legitimacy and what kind of reach has the central government of Somalia been able to establish the fest two presents two thousand nine on dead? The second one came two thousand twelve those leading stations have actually managed to push back Al Shabaab at the time who literally controlling over ninety percent of the south central part of Somalia, and most of the towns, cities and the. That infrastructures as well as they managed to put together a degree of governance all over the country building. Any genetic states said who are more or less attorney Mus running on the own issues and held to elections, you know, concede that a fair free, but nod was no that when a man went will elections. In terms of what life is like now. And what the job is like now for the president of Somalia Mohammed, Abdali Muhammed, who you have worked for. Of course. What's an average day like for him, how is he able to actually go out and see any of Somalia's he's still constrained by security? Name edged up the president is more or less constrained to move around to the on here in the city. And if and when he went to move out of the city, it's a much more undertaking, and a takes days to, to plan to move and his main security as the mandate of Amazon. Where did I miss is the African Union forces, which are mandated by the United Nations Security council? Is there any prospect at all? Do you think of al-shabaab ever being incorporated, into Somalia's mainstream political process? We had, of course, the story last year of Muktar bile, formerly a very senior Al Shabaab official trying to run for state governorship. Was that an indication that they are actually interested at some point of becoming a legitimate? Political organization, or is that more? A case of them trying to subvert subvert, Somali politics. Somebody has had success in the past where they have incorporated, rebels and jihadi groups to the government aside. So that's why might believe always comes from dad passed expedience where Shabaab will as we speak now. Shabaab is not ready to come to the table. But the conflict could only end through negotiations. That's why I put it together. In two thousand eighteen October fourteen coinciding the major attack that they did two thousand seventeen opinion is adding that we should negotiate little Tra and s y if the government put its act together, and they strategy to end the wool. I leave shebab. Sooner or later, will come to the table. If that's the case though, what is it? The Dow shebab would be looking full because the situation as you've described it sounds pretty much like what Al Shabaab booed actually won't in. They do have a degree of power that I have a degree of control. They are presumably making money what could us Amoly government offer them would induce them or encourage them to give that up. I think the first thing I, I think that Donovan needs to work on the military side, they have to show little bit of as thread, where they have to convince the leadership of Al Shabaab. The endeavor is gonna produce in other yield a success. So they summit after statal the military side, but also have to have a comprehensive strategy to convince them that the government is ready to talk to them, anything that they want to be talked about, for example, the two major issues that they always. Site when they're talking to the bubbly entre. Bob is number one, the foreign forces. I'm some other forces who I in the country, they always, they have to go and the second one is the shuttle, we are Muslims. We need a shutout. I think these two items are not something that we cannot talk to them about is a more of a technical discussion land. The, the government has to be ready to discuss with them on the subject of those foreign forces to which Al Shabaab object. This is the UN backed African Union mission Amazon, how dependent on those foreign forces. Now is the government of Somalia four its ability to project strength, and also day today security as, as you'll be aware. It has just been announced that, that force is going to be reduced by one thousand troops. Oh, where did, I think we are heavily dependent on African forces the last Security Council. Resolution is father. Reducing the forces believe at went to a lot of pressure on the ground where the government is not ready yet to take over from those forces. So we extremely dependent on there, but it is something that after be leveraged that the government have to negotiate with Al Shabaab, if we have to ask for enforces to leave, then what are you offering on the ground?

Will Sudan's Transition to Democracy Succeed?

"Welcome to background briefing. Steve out. Thanks very much. And there was a massacre of the pro democracy. Protesters in Sudan's, capital, Khartoum. The capital is effectively locked down by the Jonjo. We'd militia is lead a committee appears to be the power behind. And the scenes here and trying to turn back the aspirations of the people who managed to oust the long time dictator Bashir, but it does appear that their chances of succeeding against the kind of brutality that the judge away to famous four particularly in the massacres I that they conducted enough or with the Saudi Arabians with CNA chipped. And with the Maradas backing the military and the judge. Wade, what's your sense, whether people power can prevail? I I've been terribly impressed in in moved over six months, so power people power, and I guess we have to say it isn't inexhaustible. They've particularly in the this, so called Muslim generals and dictators, so forth, have really desecrated the holy month of Ramadan for the population by killing people. And now making a complete farce of the, the, the holiday at the end of of fasting month. I really think they'll stop at nothing to continue with this can only call an another cool and Dan, and that they don't have much of an intention to turnover power. And particularly when they say that they wouldn't have elections and nine months. That's that's ridiculous. Really giving what they've they linked. They've gone so far to make sure elections wouldn't take place. In twenty twenty in the first place, and now to imagine there's staging elections and nine months is kind of beyond belief. Well, what I find beyond belief is that this relationship between President Trump and his son in law, Jared Kushner with MBC in the Emirates, and m BS, the Saudi Crown prince, in many ways, it was set up by this character. George Neda has just been arrested in at JFK airport on charges of having child pornography. He's a cake guy and setting up that relationship, and that seems to be at the heart of it. We have a president Scholley in Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who just simply don't care about the brutality of these people that they so unswervingly support. I mean, if you can still support Ben Salman off to the murder okay? Shoghi then you pretty shameless. Scholley. Oh my goodness. Yes. That, that without question. Yeah. So what can be done. The people in the US government show to the White House that can make some kind of stand for democracy. I guess the signs do point to the lower echelons, including the assistant secretary of state for making some pretty strong statements, and, and courage ING, or really condemning the military crackdown in the death of the protesters, and so forth. But I guess I wouldn't be surprised about the next step was to try to get in some sort of particularly African Union force to supervise some sort of oversight of, of peace talks of some nature. It's hard to imagine what they look like at this point. But that seems to be the usual pattern that the, the African Union is called into to Elise oversee these things if not bring. To some successful conclusion anyway, the next step. And again, I'm speaking with state. How is a professor says director for graduate studies at the high University School of media knots studies a sociologist, by training is work focuses on social change in Africa and social movements in the Muslim world, a just recently returned from sedan where he was visiting professor at the university for women. He's the author sedan scenes from youthful uprising and he's forthcoming book as we have mood on the path of the prophet and unsettled times. But at this point, you've got the John, Joey militia locking down the capital cartoon killing people indiscriminately and they pay to be doing. So at the behest of the military council, led by general relative Burhan. So once these guys back in the saddle and prepared to be that ruthless. Then not lucky to invite the African Union INA. They. No. Although they do have all kinds of amazing global connections in that they were brought to life after the four prices by the European Union, believe it or not, which gave to Dan, all kinds of money to make sure that migrants wouldn't cross through Sudan, into Egypt into the onto the Mediterranean in Europe. And, and the again, government gave all that money to strengthen the Jeonju, we then rename them as this rapid, deployment for to protect sue do monitor the borders, while these are the people who are now murdering protesters and compliments of the European Union. So what do you know about the John Wayne leader, heavy? I mean, how much does the military council control him? Well, you know. It's a, it's a very interesting issue, because of I'll be curious to see how it get because of really kind of rampant Sudanese racism that the people control the country, every administration, whether military or civilian since independence, have been people from the Nile valley, people from north of Kotome or itself, and vodka of someone from the four or being coming. Head of the government is, it's really hard to imagine given the way that people from the central part of the country look down on, on the Dr four people, and of course, the, the south side as well. Right. It's this is a rice between. What would you say between African looking people and Arab looking people? Is that is that the dot? Katameya and I'd say when you say Africa looking are looking, I think, for the most part from the outside perspective, it's hard to tell the difference among among the Sudanese, but it but they know who comes from where, and there that the, the central Sudanese, I, I love them dearly, but they're, they're kind of remarkable races to about the, the marginalized ethnic groups outside of the central part of the country. So they and they and they've marginalize them in terms of education, and social stature, and so horse. So they have much chance to rise up in this society through the military and is considered one of these dock skinned people. Right. I see that might limit is political horizons. What about that? As soon as professional association. That's been spearheading these protests. Do you think that simply that's going to be decimated, by the, by the Jonjo Wade, or do they have what kind of international today have I it's, it's strictly lip service to the to the to the greatest extent. I mean dot getting financial bagging. But they're certainly noble. Well, trained educated that gated peace loving good Muslim people, but without any arms at their disposal. And then, you know and they dot gonna take up arms. That's not their intention. And so, I think my guess is that they would just sort of fade into the background and, and another frustrated sort of, you know, giving up on democracy for now, kind of thing if. If things get more violent that would be my estimate. Well, is there any way to shame the Saudis agency and the Maradas who without their support this? Of course, if the US would would ravers rattle some sabres and, and make some noise about this and condemn what they all are up to. But, you know that's not gonna happen with the Trump governments. They're, they're very cozy with the leader of the Emirates and, and with these e and with, and the S and so forth, so that, that I can't see that happening. That would be astonishing and very significant but doesn't seem like we're going to intervene in that way. Unless I must we get some further public uproar in this country about it. And so I appreciate your talking about well just in closing then. These reactionary leaders liked CC, NBS NBC manage to roll back the clock in Egypt's, 'cause flirtation with the Arab spring, and in general, and if they succeed in, in Sudan. Crushing the democratic aspirations of Sudanese people. It doesn't say much for that raisins hopes for now democracy, doesn't even though you know, political Islam is being promoted by the Qataris seems to be alive, but not able to stand up to this reactionary SUNY kings and military generals, Lexi, right? I mean, the whole world is becoming very Trump like and it needs to end. So. State. How I think very much for joining us. Oh my pleasure. Thanks for calling me. And again, I'm speaking with Steve, how is professor and director for graduate studies at the high University School of media arts and studies associates by training. His work focuses on social change in Africa and social movements in the Muslim world. He just recently returned from Sudan where he was visiting professor at the university for women, and he's the author sedan scenes from youthful uprising and he's forthcoming book, as we have my mood on the path of the prophet in unsettled

"He said don't be depressed. We made a Mark on the anti-slavery movement, and that's more enduring than whether I want her lost. And so I think he brought that sense as long as I'm doing something that matters than my personal ambitions will eventually be fulfilled because his interests every movement is going to be fulfilled. The first night after bull run when the union forces are. Slaughtered, and they leave walk days up all night writing a memo figuring out what went wrong. What did I do wrong? And then when he figured out the three month term of service was too short and the people didn't have the right discipline. There was the wrong general then he was finally able to go to sleep. I mean, the the biggest mistake he made was waiting too long to fire George McClellan because he kept believing. All the many times he should've fired much earlier. But he just kept giving him a second chance because he kept leaving. He'll come around in the soldiers care about him. And I think he learned from that to be much quicker later on if the general didn't do well, and he wasn't. He wasn't able to do the job. Okay. I'm moving to the next person. Even though it took them a while to get Ulysses grant can a president be considered. Great. Can they shoulder leadership without a war? I mean, that's the big question. I mean, teddy wells say that Clinton always you say not that he wanted a war. Nobody wants war. But that a war never allowed him his presidency to be valued in the in its greatness. No, I understand that. I mean teddy Roosevelt said without a war no-one Renault Lincoln's name without a war. No general would be famous. I'm not sure that's totally true. I mean, what's clear about that is without a war or domestic crisis. I could depression. You don't have the chance to mobilize the country to have a huge challenge that will allow you to be remembered by. History. But teddy Roosevelt is pretty well remembered by history, and that's because he understood the hidden challenge of his era in the industrial revolution that something had to be done with this gap between the rich and the poor and the lack of mobility. So he made himself a leader. And I think you can do that. But it's a lot easier. When there's something that history is demanding you to do something with. But even if history's they're presenting a great challenge, you can be a great failure. I mean Buchanan was there before Lincoln, and is considered one of the worst presidents because the resume going in the biggest Rasmi he'd been everything before he went in. But he had the wrong temperament, and he was you know, in some ways a supporter of the south and he got involved in the dread Scott decision. I mean, he made terrible decisions from a church that was led by anti-slavery. Right. Got kicked out of his own church. Exactly. Right. Exactly. I mean because he I mean he wasn't right for that job. So you can be the wrong man at the wrong time as was her over. I mean, he's a very decent, man. He'd been good at the jobs. He did before that. But his ideology didn't allow him to think the federal government has to step in and take care of this problem. And clearly I don't think McKinley could have done what teddy did nor do. I think Jack Kennedy could have gotten a civil rights Bill through the congress the same way LBJ did. So once you have that opportunity, you have to be prepared for it and have the right temperament for it. Given the turbulent times the co forward set, what would be the leadership if we could just dream for a second. I we need a break from this leadership. If we could just fantasize, what would be the leadership, you think we would need at this given some of the echoes of at least the turn of the century that right? Let the teddy Roosevelt. I think the leadership that's needed is what teddy Roosevelt feared he said that the rock of democracy would break if ever the.

I think is we realized that the storms we're going to be kinda rough. There was there was a moment that I thought we might pull the plug on our ally broadcast, but then we realized in talking to Andrew freidan a channel twelve that.

A lot of them didn't survive they were. Either wreak converted into other things fell into a dilapidated state. And we're torn down there in pretty prime real estate in most of the cities where they were built at the turn of the century the eighteen hundreds early eighteen hundreds and this is one of the few if not the only intact. Buildings of its kind still in the United States. Now for those of you like me who grew up in Richmond. You remember this building was the museum at the time. It was filled with artifacts from the civil war. The two hundred ninety two days when union forces basically surrounded Petersburg, and nobody could come or go without. A pass or sneaking in and out of the city, and the citizens who lived in Petersburg who were stuck here because they had confederate forces tried to defend the city and union forces tried to take the city, especially with its location on the app river and all of the railroads that came through here. I mean, it was a key. Site in Virginia that could have cut off. Huge parts of the country. This was the museum where all of that was on spray. And now it's been reconverted. It is the main visitor's center here in Petersburg. So if you come to Petersburg, and we'll tell you why you should visit Pietersburg as we proceed this morning. I mean, there's a lot of stuff that's new to see here. You'll get some of that story about the civil war and modern Petersburg as well. So we're really excited to be here in Petersburg this morning.
