We've been scraping along down years since the war and those porridge brain yankees though offense non take their pissing away money on big tracks of nothing they ought to be spending it down here helping the south. Get back on its feet. Well there's plenty of northerners who disagree with you but nothing. I don't know about that. At least last. Got polar bears. Right edgar laughs grimly. President johnson was born here. Maybe he'll have the good sense to veto this lunacy as you both sip your beers a man on the bench next to you leans over. Pardon me.

"Sumner really violently beating him with his cane over the head until who can't get away quickly enough because the desks in the senate bolted to the floor. He ultimately wrenches his desk from the floor. And collapses in a heap bleeding and brooks kane at some point breaks and he's taken away in some nurse carried away really really obviously dramatic incident so then of course the question is what do we do about that or should something be done about that. It's not the first time there was violence and congress. But it's a really symbolic extreme example. So the day after the attack. Senator william seward. Who's a new york republican so an anti slavery republican call for an investigation and the house passed a resolution to appoint a committee to look into. What would be the appropriate punishment for brooks actions. Ultimately the committee was divided and southerners did not really think it was the congress place to punish although as a whole the majority of this committee thought that this is their language. The assault was most flagrant violation. Not only the privileges of the senate and of the house and the personal rights and privileges of the senator but of the rights of his constituents and of our character as a nation so it suggests that expulsion for brooks would be a fine thing and then comes debate of brooks expulsion in the house. Ultimately it does not garner the required two-thirds majority to remove brooks all southern congressmen. Except one voted for brooks to stay on and brooks feels dishonored by the debate. Ultimately resigns goes home and his immediately reelected back into congress. Now that leads to the question one of the ones that we're dealing with today which is what's the impact of these hearings and commissions and moments in which extreme crises are aired in front of the public in this case the event itself and the debate over it increased polarization intensified polarization..

"Nonetheless, one of the biggest supporters of purchasing Alaska was the expansion of Senator from New York William Seward who stated quote standing here in looking far off into the northwest I see the Russian as he busily occupied himself in establishing seaports, towns, and fortifications on the verge of the continent and I can say go on and build your outposts all along the coast even up to the Arctic Ocean they will yet become outposts of my own country monuments of the civilization of the United States in the northwest unquote. Not. Coincidentally. William seward became the next secretary of State when Abraham Lincoln was elected president. seward was a pretty fascinating guy. He Not Lincoln was the presumptive favorite going into the Republican convention of Eighteen Sixty. In fact, he had way more votes in Lincoln did on the first ballot. However is interesting is it might be the story of seward will have to be left for another episode. With. The end of the civil war in the death of Lincoln seward remained the secretary of state under the new President Andrew Johnson While seward was an expansionist, he was also an abolitionist prewar. He was against the Gadsden purchase and a possible purchase of Cuba because they would have been slave states. With the war over seward wanted to go on a buying spree. Not only included Alaska but maybe even Greenland and Iceland to. Almost immediately after the war ended, the czar ordered his minister to the United States to open up negotiations again, with seward by March eighteen, sixty, seven negotiations had entered their final stage. The initial US offer was five million dollars which the Russians rejected as being too low. The final price which was agreed upon was seven point, two million, which ended up being approximately two cents an acre just at for inflation would be about one hundred and thirty three million dollars today. The treaty was signed at four am on March thirtieth eighteen, sixty seven. And seward hoped that the announcement would offset bad domestic news and for a while it did most of the coverage of the purchase was positive. But some radical Republican newspapers disparage the purchase calling it Johnson's polar bear garden, a Russian fairy land or Walrus Russia. The term seward's folly didn't come about until several years later. Horace Greeley. The editor of The New York Tribune noted that Alaska was quote a burden not worth taking as a gift unquote. One senator joke that the US should only accept it if seward agreed to live there. Nonetheless it easily passed in the Senate on a thirty two to seven vote. On October eighteen, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, a transfer ceremony was held in Sitka or what the Russians called new archangel everything went smoothly and peaceably. The vast majority of Alaskan natives had no clue that any of this had happened because the Russians never strayed far from beyond the southern coast of Alaska, most people inland had never seen a Russian or had even heard of Russia let alone that the land which they lived on had now somehow been sold to some other people that.

"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.

Eadweard Muybridge, the Man Who Captured Time

"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.

It's very rare when a recording artist is able to achieve top fifty status with a song both in English and Spanish, but that was done by the captain Antonio way back in nineteen seventy I can't do Casey Kasem.

January third and today back in nineteen Fifty-nine. Alaska is admitted into the union as the forty ninth state. Danish explorer Vitus Bering, I spotted the Alaskan mainland in seventeen forty one and soon thereafter, Russian hunters were making their way into the territory and claimed it as Russian America by the eighteen sixties. However, Russia was broke and needed money. Enter United States Secretary of State William Seward who is keen on expanding United States territorial holdings and took a special shine to Russian America because of his interest in wailing during his time as a New York Senator in eighteen sixty seven Seward signed a treaty with Russia to purchase Alaska for seven point two million bucks, which washed out to be about two cents per acre.
