Here’s the actual voice of a slave of Jefferson Davis. The accent seems like a lost accent that possibly nobody has now. Is this the house that he lived in ? He does give an interesting account of an era gone with the wind.

I read of one who was scalped, and left to die, but he lived, and made it back to safety.
He continued after he recovered doing the same old thing.

Those fur traders were real adventurers. They all no doubt had countless experiences with the natives, wildlife, hardships etc... that are lost to history. It wasn’t an easy life but must have had a lot of excitement. This is why there is a fur trade thread on Gary Oaks Corner.

I have read, and saw a lot over the years on that stuff, there is a lot also from the French Canadian areas that happened with the trading companies just as interesting.
Sad thing is most wasn't even told, or wrote down, we will never know of most the things that happened.
Just think being in alone for a year, or years in the woods trapping, and how many had experiences like those, and those who lost everything trying to make some gold from furs, and trading.
A lot died just from each other thieving off another, two years of furs was a lot of money.

A lot of these stories were new to me.

I have seen most that stuff reading history books, and videos, but you never hears a lot of what happened in big cities.
New York, and places like the west coast cities where more dangerous a lot of times.

Here’s some stories from the Wild West that show how ruthless it could be.

Here’s a little bit of history that I had never heard of. The independent country of Indian Stream.

I finally got around to watching this entire video. It’s long but very interesting. What is the storm that Donald Trump says we don’t have long to wait for ? He knows something. I saw a couple triangles with four triangles inside them a few times but I doubt that the narrator knew that symbol. I may have to watch this long video again.

Difficult to find one topic that this would fit under as this encompasses a number of your threads.

There are a lot of youngsters where I work with a very good work ethic. The staunch anti Trumpers age varies and they believe that Trump fans are bigots and stupid.

That's very true...I work with a few anti-Trumpers. They are all mellenials and they literally hate any co-worker who is pro-Trump. I keep my politics hidden at my place of employment as it is not conducive to professionalism or productivity.. Being in my position I also have the authority to remind people that politics has no place in the workplace and I frequently do so.

I've also noticed that mellenials, especially those who hate Trump, are very insecure and tend to have poor communication skills. They dislike working with anyone outside their age group, especially those of the Baby Boomer generation who are only a few years from retirement. These mellenials treat those older more experienced workers like they are a 5th wheel but in reality, those older employees have a work ethic that puts them far above in employee value from what I see from the average mellenial. Millenials are lazy, unmotivated, distracted and have a nasty habit of bringing their personal lives to work with them. Because they cannot be without their phones for 5 mins they are never out of touch with non office related horeshit and that horseshit spills into their work much to often. They are also the first people to brown nose the boss and they will cut each other's throats for a simple word of praise. Jealousy is rampant and they all think they "deserve" simply because they come to work and keep a seat warm.

It's pretty much a sad fact that once we lose all the experience from the workplace that the last of the Baby Boomers and the Gen Xers like myself provide, we will be left with a workforce that is not really interested in working...Instead of providing for themselves, they will want to fuck around, work when they feel like it and be provided for by an imaginary safety net. I fear for the future of this nation because it will be in the hands of those who are unfit to care for it.

Being a prisoner in a confederate war prison wasn’t like Hogan’s Heroes.

I had only heard of the rebel yell from Billy Idol’s song however I never knew that it actually a thing or what it was. Here it is in a short video for all interested.

"The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other peoples of this world is that he will die on his feet before he will live on his knees". I guess that's why never Trumpers take to their knees when they play the anthem at some of those football fields. They are not American Christians, but foreigners and Muslims.
