November 22-28 Maurine and I lead a church history tour every year. We've done this for 30 years. We take our many participants through two days of Revolutionary War and the foundations of freedom. Then we go to Sharon, Vermont and begin Joseph Smith's life chronologically and naturally we end the two weeks in the Carthage Jail. It's an unbelievable experience. We always have a testimony meeting that last day after the emotional experience of the Carthage Jail. I'll never forget one year, one of the brothers on the tour, who had been especially attentive throughout that two-week period, said emphatically in his testimony, while still on the Jail grounds, “I'm so angry. I'm just so angry!” Since we had never heard that as part of a testimony before and he gave a rather long pause, I cut in and asked aloud, “Why?” He said, “Because they killed him. They killed Joseph Smith. It was unjust. It was wrong. It was so wrong. I'm just so angry.” And that was his final testimony. And it stuck with me. Let's explore the historical, emotional and passionate ending of Joseph and Hyrum Smith's lives in this episode.

Welcome to November 10, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate a sacred fruit and a tradition of loyalty.  Pomegranates have been a favorite of fruit lovers for a very long time. A big favorite. In Ancient Egypt, there are wall paintings depicting the fruit and King Tut was even buried with some so that he could enjoy pomegranates in the afterworld. This delicious fruit was a part of both Greek and Roman mythology and is even mentioned in the Torah. Buddhism considers the pomegranate a sacred fruit. It appears in the paintings of Botticelli and Raphael. So what's all the fuss about? If you're asking, then you've never had a taste. November is National Pomegranate Month, so get your hands on one of these heavenly fruits and enjoy! After a few defeats at the hands of British forces, George Washington had requested troops that could fight on both land and sea. On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution to create two Battalions of Marines to serve with the Continental Army and these men changed the course of the Revolutionary War. Their first major test came when they landed on hostile shores in the Bahamas and captured New Providence Island. As a result, Captain Samuel Nicholas became the first commissioned officer in the Continental Marines and is celebrated as the Marine's first commandant. On the Marine Corps Birthday we celebrate those who are always loyal to each other, their country and their traditions.  I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

As our nation gathers to celebrate Veterans Day this week, and all of us pause to say “grazie” to the millions of brave men and women in uniform who have served our country in war and peace, we'd like to turn our attention to remembering the Italian American legacy of our Armed Forces. There's no better guest to guide us than Colonel Renato “Ron” Bacci (Ret.) of the Italian American Veterans Museum in Chicago. In this week's episode, Col. Bacci tells us the story of how this museum was founded in 2006 to encourage and promote the awareness of Italian American involvement in the defense of our nation from the Revolutionary War to the present, and how it now serves as a resource center for scholars, students, and the general public, and most importantly, as a source of comfort and assistance to all those who served, no matter what their ethnicity is! Col. Bacci also shares stories of the unique items in the museum's collection… from a massive World War II training bomb to an authentic Medal of Honor given to the museum to honor the 28 proud Italian Americans who have received our nation's highest military recognition. He also tells us about growing up in Chicago's Italian American community and shares memories from his own military experience, from the differences between meals in the Italian and US Armed Forces, to seeking out other Italian Americans in the ranks. We're exploring the incredible legacy of Italian American military service, and how serving our nation in uniform can be considered a true “melting pot” for all ethnicities as they unite under one common goal… defending the United States of America.

"Robert Jones, CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute, comes from a line of white American Christians that stretches back before the Revolutionary War. His ancestors weren't large plantation owners or Confederate generals, or ― as far as he knows ― active members of the Ku Klux Klan. For much of his life, Jones believed the “unremarkable” nature of his family's background meant that white supremacy wasn't a part of their history. But he's recently started to tell a different kind of story ― one that acknowledges that white privilege shaped his family's sojourn on American soil. His ancestors were wealthy enough to own slaves, Jones said. The family settled in Georgia on land the government seized from indigenous Creek and Cherokee people. They became Southern Baptists, part of a denomination founded in 1845 on the belief that it was perfectly moral for Christians to be slave owners. Decades later, after Jones's great-grandfather was killed in a clay mining accident, co-workers allegedly killed an innocent Black worker in retaliation. Jones still remembers how satisfied his great-uncle appeared while retelling that story, as if this arbitrary and unjustified act of racial violence helped balance the scales after a white man's death. It wouldn't be hard for many white Christians to find examples of white supremacy's claims on their own family's trees, Jones said. But white Christians' image of themselves and their religion has been warped by what Jones calls “white-supremacy-induced amnesia.” Jones wrestles with that amnesia in his new book, “White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity.” He argues that white Christians ― from evangelicals in the South to mainline Protestants in the Midwest to Catholics in the Northeast ― weren't just complacent onlookers while political leaders debated what to do about slavery, segregation and discrimination. White supremacist theology played a key role in shaping the American church from the very beginning, influencing not just the way denominations formed but also white Christians' theology about salvation itself. HuffPost spoke with Jones about his book earlier in July. Just as his own family history would be incomplete without acknowledging the influences of white supremacy, Jones said it's impossible to talk about American Christianity without recognizing that racism helped shape the church. How did your own eyes open to the ways that white Christianity and white supremacy are entangled? I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi. I was deeply immersed in white Southern Baptist evangelical culture. I was that kid who was always at church, four to five times a week. I have a degree from a Southern Baptist college, and I have a Master of Divinity degree from a Southern Baptist seminary. But it wasn't until I was in grad school in my 30s that I really began to examine the history of my denomination's direct ties to slavery. Along with that, in my day job as CEO of PRRI, we're repeatedly confronted with public opinion data that suggests white Christians really have a blind spot in seeing racial injustice and particularly structural racism. So it was a combination of really reckoning with my own family's history, together with seeing patterns in the data that just made it so clear that this is not a story of some distant past, but this is very much still in the DNA of white Christianity today." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

For our first episode, we decided to start with the incredible Heath Ledger (1979- 2008). Born in Perth, Australia, Ledger first came to prominence on Australian TV before crossing over to the U.S as a teen heartthrob in 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU. From there, his career skyrocketed, playing Mel Gibson's son in the Revolutionary War epic THE PATRIOT,  before leading his own blockbuster with A KNIGHT'S TALE. While he could have gone an easier route to Hollywood stardom, Ledger opted to take risks, co-starring as Billy Bob Thornton's doomed son in MONSTER'S BALL, and eventually leading the stone-cold classic BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, directed by Ang Lee and co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Of course, the role his most associated with these days was still to come, with him being the unlikely choice to play The Joker in Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT. The rest, as they say, is history, but tragically Ledger would not live to see its release. Join us as we examine his amazing life and career - as WE REMEMBER HEATH LEDGER.

That didn't stop him from perfecting the recipe for milk chocolate. Ben Franklin dropped out of elementary school. Stephen King's first novel was rejected 30 times. And no one took Michael Jordan's dream seriously as a kid because he was short! If you're feeling like a failure these days, you're in some very good company! On National Kick Butt Day, get past the excuses and go kick some butt! Many brave Americans fought in the Revolutionary War, but the colonists did not fight alone. Other European nations, who were not fond of the British, were willing to lend a helping hand. One of the most prominent was Polish General Casimir Pulaski. After being exiled from his homeland, where he fought against the Russian army, Pulaski made his way to Paris. Here Benjamin Franklin recruited him for the war against Great Britain. He became one of General Washington's most valuable field commanders and went on to win key battles for the Continental Army. Pulaski saved hundreds of troops before he was fatally wounded in Savannah, Georgia.

From the Revolutionary War that facilitated the founding of the United States to the Black Lives Matter movement, America has shown that nothing is set in stone if people are willing to fight for change. Also intertwined within the country's foundation is denim, which, despite its seemingly benign presence as a fabric, denotes social change, as well. As fashion brands across the industry respond to calls for eco-consciousness, AG Jeans, a denim brand founded in 2001, has been a trailblazer in promoting sustainable denim. “In the last 12-24 months, we're finding that customers are caring more than ever,” said Sam Ku, president and creative director of AG Jeans, on this week's Glossy Podcast. “They've decided that, yes, I am willing to pay a little bit more for something that is better for the planet. I am [also] willing to buy a little bit less and buy better quality and make it last longer.” For AG, this shift in the industry manifested in the Jean of Tomorrow, a 100% biodegradable jean made of “eco-friendly” cotton and hemp fibers, complete with a “Coronado nut” button. “Building a brand based on great product is the most important thing,” said Ku. Unlike a majority of jean retailers, AG operates and manufactures its jeans at its L.A. and Mexico facilities that are “100% owned and operated by us,” said Ku. But despite this, the brand has not been exempt from the Covid-related supply chain challenges within the fashion industry. “We're able to stock a lot of our raw materials that we consistently use, [but] those that we don't carry are hard to keep up with,” he said. As for the future, Ku is focused on getting the company back to 2019 sales levels and “continuing to deliver the right product on time,” he said. “The brands that can do that right now will win.”

The Battle of Saratoga occurred in September and October, 1777, during the second year of the American Revolution. It included two crucial battles, fought eighteen days apart, and was a decisive victory for the Continental Army and a crucial turning point in the Revolutionary War. After a failed Canadian invasion left much of the Continental Army beaten, sick and in retreat, the British hoped to quash rebellion once and for all by isolating the New England colonies. They also hoped to discourage potential American allies such as France from joining the fight. To accomplish this, the British Redcoats needed to take upstate New York and then control the Hudson River. In the spring of 1777, the British ordered three of their armies to merge in Albany, New York. Only one army, however, commanded by General John Burgoyne, made the final push toward its destination. Waiting for them was the heavily-fortified Northern Department of the Continental Army, commanded by General Horatio Gates. The opposing armies came face to face on September 19. Known as the Battle of Freeman's Farm or the First Battle of Saratoga, the fierce fighting lasted for several hours. Momentum changed sides several times, but neither side gained significant ground until Burgoyne ordered his column of German troops to support the faltering British line and forced the Americans to pull back. Still, the British suffered twice the number of casualties than the Americans and couldn't continue their drive to Albany. Burgoyne decided to stay put and wait for reinforcements from New York City. In the meantime, the number of Gates' American troops increased to over 13,000 and continued to grow. By October 7, with supplies dwindling fast, Burgoyne realized waiting for backup was in vain. He sent out a reconnaissance force to attack the American's left flank in the wooded area of Bemis Heights, south of Saratoga. The Americans got wind of the movement, however, and beat back the British and sent them into retreat – winning the day. Burgoyne decided to take his army north to safety, but heavy rain and frigid temperatures slowed their retreat On October 13, 1777. Within two days, Gates' soldiers surrounded what remained of Burgoyne's army and they surrendered. The news of the first defeat of a large British army sent shockwaves around the world and ultimately brought the French into the War on the side of the Americans turning the tide and helping secure American independence – all aided by nasty weather.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Einstein Said, "You Never Fail Until You Quit Trying." Turns Out He Was In Good Company. Welcome to October 11, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate kicking butt and an uncommon hero.  If you're running low on motivation these days, you're not alone.  Most of us think that successful people have some extra luck, but the truth is, they're just people who pushed past the failure.  Milton Hershey worked in a candy factory, but when he tried to make it on his own he failed - three times, before returning to the family farm. That didn't stop him from perfecting the recipe for milk chocolate.  Ben Franklin dropped out of elementary school.  Stephen King's first novel was rejected 30 times. And no one took Michael Jordan's dream seriously as a kid because he was short!  If you're feeling like a failure these days, you're in some very good company!  On National Kick Butt Day, get past the excuses and go kick some butt! Many brave Americans fought in the Revolutionary War, but the colonists did not fight alone.  Other European nations, who were not fond of the British, were willing to lend a helping hand.  One of the most prominent was Polish General Casimir Pulaski.  After being exiled from his homeland, where he fought against the Russian army, Pulaski made his way to Paris.  Here Benjamin Franklin recruited him for the war against Great Britain.  He became one of General Washington's most valuable field commanders and went on to win key battles for the Continental Army.  Pulaski saved hundreds of troops before he was fatally wounded in Savannah, Georgia. On General Pulaski Memorial Day, we celebrate the hero who stepped up for a country that wasn't even his own.   I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

With a Clash Between American Rebels and Royal Authorities Heating Up, Radicals Smuggled Cannon Out of Boston—and the British Came Looking for ThemIn the early spring of 1775, on a farm in Concord, Massachusetts, British army spies located four brass cannon belonging to Boston's colonial militia that had gone missing months before. British general Thomas Gage had been searching for them, both to stymie New England's growing rebellion and to erase the embarrassment of having let cannon disappear from armories under redcoat guard. Anxious to regain those weapons, he drew up plans for his troops to march nineteen miles into unfriendly territory. The Massachusetts Patriots, meanwhile, prepared to thwart the general's mission. There was one goal Gage and his enemies shared: for different reasons, they all wanted to keep the stolen cannon as secret as possible. Both sides succeeded well enough that the full story has never appeared until now.The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannon Ignited the Revolutionary War by historian J. L. Bell reveals a new dimension to the start of America's War for Independence by tracing the spark of its first battle back to little-known events beginning in September 1774. The author relates how radical Patriots secured those four cannon and smuggled them out of Boston, and how Gage sent out spies and search parties to track them down. Drawing on archives in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, the book creates a lively, original, and deeply documented picture of a society perched on the brink of war.HOST:  Rob MellonFEATURED BREW:  Low Flying Panic Attack American Pale Ale, Idle Hands Craft Ales, Malden, MassachusettsBOOK:  The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannon Ignited the Revolutionary War https://www.amazon.com/Road-Concord-Revolutionary-American-Revolution/dp/1594162492MUSIC:  Bones Forkhttps://bonesfork.com/

(9/22/21) George Washington is said to have remarked that anyone who attempted to provide an accurate account of the American Revolution would be accused of writing fiction. Of course, no one called the uprising from American colonists by that name or referred to the struggle as the Revolutionary War at the time. John Adams insisted that the British were the real revolutionaries, for attempting to impose radical change without the consent of the colonies. In his new book The Cause: The American Revolution and its Discontents, 1773-1783 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning historical scholar Joseph J. Ellis of Mount Holyoke College takes a fresh look at the events between 1773 and 1783, recovering a war more brutal than anything we learned in grade school.

A longie but goodie just in time for the fall of US imperialist projects in Afghanistan...and autumn. TLDR: It's giving very much hating on the not rich who did not understand the assignment of shutting the fuck up and running politicians their propers for re-election. A tax on vibes. If "Taliban" means "student" in Pashto--the US is the teacher. Have you ever asked yourself why tax reform is such a contentious issue and has been for decades? Have you ever stopped to think that politicking, grandstanding and "fashion diplomacy" is part of moderate, centrist Democrats' pandering to a more leftist, "progressive" voter base but without alienating their prioritized white voter base too much (think Nancy Pelosi kneeling in the kente cloth sash in 2020)? There's a slavery era explanation for that: The tobacco rice and indigo that our ancestors grew and produced were considered in Alexander Hamilton's own words “which must be capital objects in treaties of commerce w foreign nations” and precipitated the events that led to this country's independence in 1776 following the Revolutionary War. His more famous quote, though, "no taxation without representation" portends a more glaring contradiction: imagine being mad you have to pay taxes to enrich the British whose royal companies, militaries, fleets and slavers sold and transported the Indigenous Africans you enslaved and calling TAXATION slavery while actually enslaving people? Tax the rich is again policy sloganeering and is a liberal democratic/partisan rallying cry that can't happen in good faith in an oligarchy that siphons all its resources to an already massive defense budget. Just earmark our reparations, will ya? Maybe the majority of folks who at least have some semblance of a revolutionary or radical politic aren't hating on rich people or Met Gala attendees or AOC herself, but instead recognizing that she and other politicians across the spectrum are sworn to serve a country that used the international slave trade between Britain and Spain to generate revenue to build a domestic manufacturing infrastructure to keep taxes lowered for their most invaluable taxable import--Black people and whose Central Intelligence Agency created the Taliban to wrest power from the USSR's puppet pro-soviet government during the Soviet Afghan War in 1979-1989 as part of plan to distort the public's view of the barbaric, warmongering, misogynist primitive backward United States to continue competing for oil and other natural resources in Central Asia, including the global heroin trade to finance the invasion of other countries, arm the genocide of their number one ally in the region (the Israeli Government. See Kamala Harris's comments on Israel)while pretending to care about "women's right's" and immigration while whipping Haitian immigrants at the border.

Square dancing evolved from traditional European social dances, with most of the terms it uses coming from French.  Why French?  Because after the Revolutionary War, Americans embraced anything that wasn't British. Social dances in Europe followed memorized steps, but American dances were less formal.  Because no one wanted to learn a whole dance routine, one of square dancing's most distinguishing features was born.  A caller leads everyone through the dance steps so that dancers only need to be good listeners in order to have a good time.  During National Square Dance Month it's a great time to Do-Si Do and Promenade into a whole new hobby.

On the occasion of the 245th anniversary of the Revolutionary War in New York City, we revisit the story of the Great Fire of 1776, the drumbeat of war leading up to the disaster, and the tragic story of the American patriot Nathan Hale. This is a reedited, remastered version of an episode that we recorded in 2015. A little after midnight on September 21, 1776, the Fighting Cocks Tavern on Whitehall Street caught on fire. The drunken revelers inside the tavern were unable to stop the blaze, and it soon raged into a dangerous inferno, spreading up the west side of Manhattan. Some reports state that the fire started accidentally in the tavern fireplace. But was it actually set on purpose -- on the orders of George Washington? Meanwhile, underneath this sinister story is another, smaller drama -- that of a young man on a spy mission, sent by Washington into enemy territory. His name was Nathan Hale, and his fate would intersect with the disastrous events of that perilous night. PLUS: The legacy of St. Paul's Chapel, a lasting reminder not only of the Great Fire of 1776 but of an even greater disaster which occurred almost exactly 225 years later. boweryboyshistory.com If you like the show, please rate and review on Apple Podcasts.
