"Exploration is dangerous work. There are unknowns challenging landscapes severe weather to contend with, and that's just the tip of the iceberg at extreme locations or just factual, non metaphorical icebergs and everything gets much more difficult. Early. Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic circles near the north and South Poles were some of the most incredible undertakings in history. Of course there were plenty of failures, but every time someone tried. It helps the people who came after. Learn a little bit more. By the early nineteen hundreds several different parties from many different places had succeeded in exploring the frigid areas and returning to tell the tale. Eight! Adele Tuck was born not too far from this brutal cold, She I opened her eyes in eighteen ninety in Alaska, not far from the city of nome, which is on the West Central Coast at one time. Alaska was known to Americans as seward's folly because Secretary of State William, seward purchased the land from Russia for seven million dollars in eighteen, sixty seven. People thought it was a terrible mistake and a waste of money, but when golden were discovered, there seward was like who's laughing now y'all seward's folly more like seward's stroke of genius that you all were super wrong about L. K. man. We get it. Anyway Alaska would still not even become an official US territory until Ada was a teenager, she was initiate one of the indigenous groups of people native to land. But growing up, she never learned the survival ways and traditions of her tribe. She was raised by missionaries people who moved to the area to set up a school in order to convert people to their religion. It's a circumstance that happened to many native Americans and as a result, many traditions were lost for generations some forever. In school eight learned to read and write English read the Bible and learned cooking and other domestic skills, the reading and writing served her well, but as you might have guessed in a story about exploration, these domestic skills would not go near as far in helping her as more traditional skills like hunting, tracking and survival might have. As a young adult! Sixteen! She married a man named Jack Black. Jiang. Yep. You heard that, right? Jack Black Jack. No. He was not a cartoon outlaw, nor was he a professional poker player. He was a dog musher hauling freight across Alaska on a sled pulled by dogs. Together! They had three kids. Sadly, only one survived a boy named Bennett. But one day, Jack Blackjack left the family high and dry. Up and left her in the middle of nowhere which in Frigid Alaska can be a pretty serious predicament. Though he was not the greatest of guys she did keep his greatest of names and earned her future fame as Ada blackjack. When Jack blackjack deserted her. She was forty miles from their home in known, and she and Ben Walked the entire way back in the bitter Alaskan cold to make matters worse than it was very sick with burke. And infection of the lungs, so ada quite a small woman carried the boy much of the way.

"Edward Mobridge was born in eighteen thirty and kingston upon teams in England. His birth name was Edward Muggeridge but as he marched through the circumstances dances life he would change his name many times. Such a thing was pretty uncommon in the eighteen hundreds but he was pretty uncommon man. His hometown town was the historical site of coronations where the early British kings were crowned and ceremony and the earliest of. These monarchs were Saxons and perhaps inspired by that the young man would change his name to Mobridge and adopt the old spelling of his first name. Edward The vowel heavy spelling E. A. D. w. e. a. a- are D-. It looks like eat weird but sounds like Edward seeking adventure. He left for America at the age of twenty two telling his grandmother that if he didn't succeed and the lofty goals he had for his own life. He'd never retired. He arrived in New York with a bunch of extra bells and his name and little else he. He worked there for a bit but was thirsty for more. So he left for California soon after it was eighteen fifty-five during the gold rush when scores of people headed west to mind for the valuable metal. He sought his fortune through other means. Though he opened a bookstore in San Francisco the city was growing in the people had money need to spend by most accounts he was mild mannered and his business was pretty successful in the bustling city in eighteen. Sixty he made plans to head back to Europe for. We're a visit and to do some business. But he missed the boat so instead he booked passage on a Coniston goggin across the American continent to head head back east and from there he would sail to his native England. Kind of still go. aggies were the common covered wagon that you see all of the images of westward travel. It was was a fateful trip and the first time that a horse would fundamentally alter his life. These wagons were pulled by horses. The one carrying Mobridge was pulled by a team of six six mustangs but somewhere in Texas the horses pulling his wagon broke loose and started off leaving the wagon cascading on a high narrow trail above Iraqi fall. The driver couldn't get control and the WAGGON tumbled loaded with passengers and their belongings thinking quickly as the accident that was unfolding. Edward tried to cut an escape hole in the wagons cover but in the commotion he was thrown from the vehicle and hit his head on a rock. During the fall he recovered from the head injury in Arkansas. For three months though he had no recollection of the accident. One of the other passengers had to tell oh him what had happened. In addition to some memory problems he now saw everything in a disorienting. Double Vision Edward also displayed definite personality. Finality changes it was a brain injury. And as you might guess these can have a great impact on a person in his case. The injuries came with aggressive episodes. Grandiose thinking and general unusual behavior the people who had known him before noticed a distinct difference in his personality. After recuperating more New York he headed back to England where he stayed for several years when he returned to America in eighteen sixty seven. He considered himself photographer having learned a lot about the new art form and he had acquired some very nice equipment which he had brought with him. It was still a developing art. In fact the I photograph in history was made in France just four years before Edward was even born. By the time he was working eighteen sixties. The technology was still very limited mid and far from the powerful cameras that we carry in our pockets every day. Edwards equipment filled an entire horse cart in addition to the new career as a photographer he also sported an enormous beard and he called himself by a host of new names including Helius. This was not not the same old Edward. His photography made an impact on the world. He had a definite fascination with stopping time. Just a few years after a man named Matthew Brady Changed America by photographing not just the people of the civil war. But the battle scenes and carnage mobridge was documenting in beautiful detail. Some of America's because most amazing and mysterious natural sites. If you've never been to Yosemite Valley you still probably heard about it's staggering beauty. This led to it being being among the first of the land to be designated as national parks but before it welcomed hordes of tourists to gaze at its beauty weighbridge made some of the first and certainly some of the best photographs of the amazing land. Some of them are so amazing. They look like epic landscape paintings soon. Everyone wanted a piece of Edward. Helius Komo Abridge the same year. He came back to America. The Secretary of State William seward negotiated a deal to buy Alaska Lasca from the Russian Empire. But for years this was called seward's icebox or seward's folly because most people thought it was a costly mistake to buy the enormous swath of northern land in an effort to convince people of its value. The government hired Mobridge to join an expedition travel with his immense. It's photo equipment and a darkroom and photograph the Land Resources and native people of the territory. They are some of the most important documents we have of that time time period still today but it was back in California that his fame truly solidified and it was largely. Thanks to a man who would give his name to Stanford University his name was Leland Stanford and he had a problem he was a robber Baron and oh this was a problem for a lot of other people. This wasn't a problem as so called robber. Baron he like several other industrialised of the late eighteen. Hundreds was rich and powerful but he had gotten that way through some pretty shady and morally questionable ways used political influence and connections to get rich not to mention taking advantage of many less fortunate people he had been the governor head of the railroad a Horse Breeder and he owned what was at the time the largest winery in the world on his gigantic estate. He raised eight hundred racehorses. Feeding these horses alone wasn't expensive task in order to do so. He also operated a a sixty acre carrot farm just for food so you may ask yourself what does a guy like this. Have to worry about Mr Muggeridge. I I have a problem. That's not my name. Mr Mobridge have rows riot again. I have gone long again call me. He Leo's Leo's that's right heels as in the ancient Greek personification of the sun being okay. Okay Helius so I have this theory and it's more than a hunch but I just can't prove it and I may or may not have bet money on it so I I need an answer. So how can he LEO's help. Well he'll ios this concerned horses. You see I believe when a horse runs at some point in its stride dried all four of its speed are above the ground so at some point the horse has touching absolutely nothing yet still moving forward but it happened so quickly that I can't be certain. Do you understand yeah. He Leo's digs that. You want me to prove it with Pictures Helius. I'd like that very much which it's going to cost you. Some money got plenty. Don't worry. Coup crackle added now it was actually a pretty common disagreement of the time and Leland with his stable full of horses and pockets. Full of cash was in a unique position to solve it he just needed. Someone like mobridge invest best craziest and most creative photographer in the public eye to solve technical issues when a horse ran. was there ever a moment when all four of its feet were off of the ground many people believed it could not possibly be true. The first tries to capture the airborne image. Each were failures. It was impossible with the cameras of the day to catch the fast horse. At just the right time the beast was just a blur so they went back to the drawing board. The project was derailed by mobridge being the defendant in a murder case which is another story entirely but once that was over they got back to work. More bridge hung white sheets up along the race track. And whiten the track itself with chalk powder this would reflect any an all light which he knew would help. The camera. Camera capture a clear image of the fast horse next. He designed a camera with quick shutter speed. It may have been the first of its kind as most cameras needed a long Exposure to whatever was being photographed people would have to sit still early photographs. So that they didn't show up as a blur that would not work with a galloping horse.

"And so I was very curious about that love triangle between Lucy John Roberts, and how Stanton interacted without love triangle because I had to believe that is the secretary of war man, who was essentially in charge of everything I had to believe that he knew the truth about it. And I had to believe that he made the decision to essentially cover it up. It's a fascinating bit of history. And then it'll the other piece of history that I'm just shocked by and I've still conflicted about and I still wish I had more answers to to these questions, but Stanton really believed that Jefferson Davis. The president of the confederacy was responsible for the attacks against our country on April fourteenth. And as I stepped deeper and deeper into the history of all this. There were just a lot of things that I soon to be true. I think I think the average person probably thinks John Wilkes booth was alone gunman. Right. Well, turns out he wasn't. It turns out that booth had a gang of conspirators. It turns out that Lincoln wasn't even the only government official to be attacked on April fourteenth. The secretary of state was also attacked by one of booths conspirators he was stabbed almost mortally secretary of state's William Seward. He nearly died that night there were also there was also an attacker who allegedly went after Andrew Johnson. And there's even some facts that that point to Edwin Stanton being a target as well. So it's just you know, the story is always a little bit more complicated than than we think it is. But Edwin Stanton really truly believed that the Jefferson Davis was responsible that the confederacy was responsible and that by extension the south as a whole was responsible and in the military, tribunal of booths conspirators Stanton really set out to make that case to the American people because Stanton believed that, hey, listen, if the south is responsible for these attacks than than a policy of leniency, which is what Andrew Johnson wanted apo-. Policy of amnesty or pardon to the south is impossible. And so this question of well was Stanton. Right. Or was he wrong is one of those things that we just won't. We can't ever know the answer to certainly there's evidence that points in both directions him being right and him being wrong. But it's just one of those mysteries that we're never going to know the the real truth of one of the fascinating things about eighteen sixty five is the use of actual historical documents when when it's appropriate the the podcast is littered with with actual telegrams. And in particular newspaper articles from the period. And what strikes me is that they are as rancourous hand full of language that we would expect from today's editorials. They are they're no better than anything. You would hear on Huffington Post or Fox News.

"Nine the quest for national security and global power America's shifting position in the international economy and fluctuations in immigration made the United States the nation that is today Americans foreign relations have been conditioned have conditioned excuse me. It's history not only in their cumulative effects over the long haul. But also as a result of their volatility in periods of crisis, America's position in the world has lurched in unexpected directions for his inexorable as the rise of the United States appears in retrospect, expect there have been contingent moments in which the very existence of our nation was up for grabs. This is the essence of crisis the world turned upside down the known replaced by the unknown panic raining as people struggle to maintain their balance shifts in the. Very ground beneath their feet, it came with a speed and ferocity the left men days New York Times correspondent Elliott bell wrote of Wall Street's catastrophic collapse in October of nineteen twenty nine quote, the market seemed like an incent insensate thing that was wreaking wild pitiless revenge on those who thought to master it end quote. Crises contagious spreading like viruses from one room to another. It's not without reason that the word crisis was associated with medical conditions and also scares in the nineteenth century each of the period under consideration in this book were less a singular crisis than a set of interlinked crises a political crisis could trigger an economic panic which in turn could intensify social conflict and so on as these pandemic spread through the body. Politic crisis itself was normalized becoming an almost accepted characteristic of an age just as foreign crises have spread to the United States, domestic ones have spilled across its borders unsettling foreign countries of people's as well as reconfiguring America's connections to the world. Consider the fateful winter of secession the follow the eighteen sixty election of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the crisis over slavery, the divided the union into warring sections, the lead to a series of sharp reversals in America's position in the global system the foreign capital that had rushed into the roaring American economy in the preceding decade. Aids suddenly began to flee indeed, more capital left, the United States in eighteen sixty to eighteen sixty two then came into it. Also, a once in a century occurrence. One of the world's most valuable commodities in America's largest exports. Southern cotton was confined to the ports of the confederacy is a result of Richmond's ill-fated, diplomatic strategy leading to unemployment and social unrest in the British textile town of Lancashire. The most unexpected reversal was how the national security that that the United States had attained after the war against Mexico in the eighteen forties was suddenly imperilled with European powers encroaching once again on the western hemisphere. Meanwhile, the confederate emissaries across the Atlantic in search of alliance it word search of alliance with Britain our country secretary of State William Seward lamented in early eighteen sixty one after having expelled all European powers in the continent. Now threatened to relapse into an aggravated aggravated form of its colonial experience. And like India Turkey, China and Italy become the theatre of transatlantic intervention and rapacity a wider view of American history that looks beyond the nation's borders brings into focus not only the migration patterns economic flows. International rivalries. That have connected the United States to the world that also those rare moments in which the very existence of the nation was in question. Perhaps none was more pregnant with. Implications than the autumn of eighteen seventy seven and the fate of the patriots bid for independence hung in the balance having proclaimed their independence to the world the previous fourth of July there 'cause had stalled on the battlefield and in the diplomatic courts of the world. I think the game is pretty near up. Washington privately confessed at year's end to accomplish their independence is not quite so easy as to declare it the British loss for Jeremy Jeremy Bentham haughtily remarked, but then a series of events forever changed the course of modern history. The stunning patriot victory at the battle of Saratoga in October the drafting of the articles of confederation in November that for all its limitations further demonstrated the political resolve of the Americans and most of all the alliance signed with France in February seventeen seventy eight which provided the patriots with the resources military assistance in naval power that ultimately tipped the scales in their favor. There are comparable Saratoga moments and other crises in US history. As we shall see these contingent moments played out in their own distinctive ways, but are joined by a common denominator that has been curiously forgotten in our age of US, global power foreign states and people have played decisive roles in the critical moments of American history as we make our way through our own era of global instability in an unprecedentedly interconnected world, there's perhaps no more important lesson from the past to keep in mind. Crisis may be get crisis. Franklin Roosevelt said as his administration transition from battling the great depression to enter in the second World War, but the progress underneath does not wholly halt. It does go forward and quote like so many of Roosevelt's public statements. This one reveals the truth, even as it conceals others. The United States came out on the other side of its greatest crises as a stronger and more efficiently organized nation as Roosevelt suggested the process of mobilizing resources to counter threats, catalyzed innovations and political economy such as the creation of a national financial system during the civil war and the economic reforms of the new.

"We're seeing drives for making nonpartisan congressional lines being drawn. We'll get through this. I really believe. Thank you for your optimism. Doors. I wish I could bottle. We're going to go to audience questions, and I don't use the term question. Sloppy manner. The more we can cover in in your question. More will be able to for them. So we have the microphones Holly. I don't know. Whether you have one up yet. Thank you for your stories that bring these people to life for your hopeful. This you mentioned Lincoln running and winning darkhorse. Can you give us an idea of what the country was like at that time that allowed that to happen? But it's a very good question. I mean, that's right. I mean, obviously conventions chose the candidates then that was before the primary system. So when they got to the convention in Chicago. The front runner was William Seward by far who was the governor and Senator from New York and everybody thought that he would become the nominee, and what Lincoln strategy was. He just told all the delegates. If you can't have your I love, I know, I'm not your I love, but maybe I can be your second love and come to me. So Seward was a somewhat controversial figure because they thought he was more radical than the Republican party should be. And so on the first ballot. He didn't get the the numbers of votes he needed. So they went to a second ballot. And the other people who were potentially the presidential candidates chase and Bates they had all been arguing against each other during this time in the pre running up to the convention, and so when people were switching around they didn't go to them. And because Lincoln had never said anything about the other people. He just been arguing for the Republican party and for the cause of the party, then he became the second love. And he gained votes on the second ballot. And then on the third ballot. He actually became the nominee and at that time he was somewhat he'd made himself somewhat known during the he was obviously beloved in Illinois. I mean, one of the things teddy Roosevelt later said was if the warrant a war, you wouldn't have ever known Lincoln. He's wrong the people in Illinois already knew how special he was. But the debates that city had with Stephen Douglas who was the democratic candidate for president in eighteen sixty and very well known and he bested him at least equal to him. And then the debates published and people knew all about them. So he had already gained his reputation, but it was really in some ways just a whole series of things that made it possible for that convention to choose him. If it had been the primaries, it probably wouldn't have happened because he wouldn't have been well enough known. And if the Democratic Party hasn't split in the Democratic Party split into and then so that once you knew the publican candidate was probably going to win at that point lead them have thirty nine percents of. That's correct. I mean, the minority minority vote but thank God. He was there. Our next to this questions coming from the center of the balcony. Hi, two issues. One you were talking about four presidents relationship with the press. Donald Trump calls the press fake news, but doesn't FOX lose exemplify fake news. And Secondly, the electoral college specifically in relation to California where we've got forty million people isn't that a system of antiquated at least to be fixed and disappear. Finally. No, I'm just in terms of the fake news. I mean, what's worrisome about the way in which the news is now divided and you watch your favorite cable network, and you are getting different facts. Is that it is reminiscent of what happened in the eighteen fifties? In those days, you only got your news from.

"In this episode, we'll see how quick land purchase ten years after the civil war eventually leads to the largest expansion of national parks and US history before eighteen sixty seven. Alaska was an undeveloped piece of land owned by the Russian empire. It was mostly populated by for traders, Russian Orthodox missionaries and the indigenous people. The missionaries were trying to convert while the Russians light having an overseas colony, they had trouble making a go of it. Frozen land wasn't good for forming, and the distance from Saint Petersburg may defense and communication difficult. And so after Russia lost the Crimean war in eighteen fifty, six began looking for a way to sell the territory to raise some cash Russia. I approached the United States about a sale under president, James Buchanan, but the outbreak of the civil war delayed discussions. But after the war secretary of State, William Seward jumped at the chance to renew negotiations. Most of the nation was perplexed though this was less. Than two years after the civil war had ended, much of the country was still getting back on its feet, spending money on distant frozen wasteland that couldn't support farming, didn't make sense to most people, but for Seward the deal was a steel to him. Alaska represented a vast array of possibilities. It could serve as a significant port of future trade with China and Japan and it expanded American power on the global stage. Alaska would be a colony similar to those owned by other world powers who strategic location could help the US control the Pacific. And he was about to get it all for only two cents acre that reasoning didn't catch on though. The purchase was ridiculed in congress and newspapers as Seward's folly. Seward's icebox and wall Russia. A Russian tundra fit only for walruses, but on April ninth eighteen sixty seven. The Senate ratified the treaty between the United States and the Russian empire and on may twenty eighth president Johnson signed it in October. The Russian flag was lowered, and an American one was raised in its place. Alaska belong to the United States, but the value of the purchase wouldn't be understood and Seward's lifetime. It would take decades for William Seward to finally vindicated in the eyes of the world. In the latter part of the nineteenth century, some Americans began exploring Alaska for the first time. One of those men was John Muir in eighteen seventy nine long before his falling out with Gifford Pinchot oh, or the battle over hetch hetchy and only four years after James Hutchings was victim from his hotel in the seventy valley, your ventured north to what eventually became glacier, national park. He wrote about his adventure in his book travels in Alaska. He wrote to the lover of pure wildness. Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world. It seems as if surely we must at length reach the very paradise of the poets, the abode of the blessed. MIR had come to the Alaska territory in hopes of studying it's landscape. He took particular interest in its glaciers. He travelled to parts of the region never before seen by white men in a canoe, paddle by toyah Tae, a chief, but one especially stormy day. His native guides decided to stay in camp. Muir determined to go on by himself. Braving the elements near wrote, pushing on through rain and mud and sludgy snow crossing many Brown boulder choke Torrens waiting jumping wallowing and snow up to my shoulders was mountaineering of the most trying kind all the landscape was smothered and clouds. And I began to fear that as wide views were concerned, I climbed in vain, but at length the clouds lifted a little and beneath their gray fringes. I saw Burg filled expanse of the bay and the feet of the mountains that stand about it and the imposing fronts of five, huge glaciers. The nearest being immediately beneath me. This was my first general view of glacier bay dim, dreary, mysterious. Mere stayed on the peak. Another couple of hours sketching the glaciers in his notebook with numb fingers. When you return to camp at night, he was satisfied with his day's work, but Mears desire to learn about the glaciers was unsettling to his native guides when told MIR had gone out seeking knowledge, she's Toyata replied, your must be a witch to seek knowledge such places this in such miserable weather. That wouldn't be Muir's last trip to glacier bay. He returned twenty years later with more white men seeking knowledge.

"Hundred seventy seven, holy shit longest serving Republican Senator in US. History dude has been in the sentence. Jimmy Carter was president. I gotta say it looks good. It looks like it takes care of himself better than I do probably is less torito's probably drinks less red bull impressive. So why did booth want the secretary state killed? Well. I, I remember he's not accurate nationally. He just wants to hurt the north. Now the war's essentially over the motive for his original kidnapping. You know, to kind of negotiate things for the confederate government doesn't make sense anymore right after not after the surrender of generally. He has to understand that on some level. He's not a fool, he's angry and he wants to inflict pain on the union and the fans union than his mind have caused well, not in his mind that have caused so much pain to certain people in the south secretary of State. William Seward was also a strong figure for the north during and before the civil war who was stanchly anti-slavery speak abolitionist. So Seward was a determined opponent of slavery and the spread of slavery for years before the war. He actually was initially the favored candidate for the Republican nomination for president and the eighteen sixty election that Lincoln one. But he became so vocally anti-slavery that the party didn't think he was electable leading up to the civil war. He was also very vocally anti-secession. So basically he represented everything that booth hated and boots. These these men. As true tyrants as oppressors of the south. And again, to be fair, you know, to booth union was pretty brutal and their treatment of the south, like in some respects, specially with their belief in total war of, you know, that term union army general William to come to sherman's infamous March to the sea from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia, for example, in November and December eighteen sixty four was was part of the total war plan where you destroy the resources required for the south to make war. So when you go through to a town, you don't just, you know, get rid of all the enemy troops. You also destroy like all of the food. You burn down anything that could be used to like manufacturer, weapons of war. Even if it's like civilian property, you ruined roads. You blow up bridges to try and destroy the confederacies. Konami is transportation. Networks, you burn plantations to the ground, you know called- civilian homes were destroyed. There's a lot of collateral damage, family businesses gone families destroy themselves. So if you're southerner some with southern sympathies again, easy to see how you'd feel. A little bit of like, fuck these guys at the war's end. So this restaurant boo tells Lewis Powell that twenty one year old. Well, built former confederate cavalry member met through John Surat the the that he is to murder the secretary of State William Seward that night and booth tells George as rot that he is to murder the vice president, Andrew Johnson, they would have liked to have gotten more guys, but these weren't in the city. You know, like General Grant, they would liked to got him, but he wasn't around. But these these are the. These are the guys who are around that they, they know their whereabouts and they feel like they have a good chance to kill. Let's just really just caused the government to fall into anarchy is I guess, maybe part of his help around eight pm that evening, April fourteenth, the Lincoln's set out for four theater. They pick up a friend, Mary's Clara Harris and her fiance, corporal, Henry Rathbone more on Rathbone. Later in this suck what a very strange twisted post assassination story. He's going to have other more more noted. Guests had turned them down that evening such as house speaker shooter Colfax, who had a departure, California, a few days later General Grant whose wife wanted to visit family in New Jersey..
