Some important facts to know about the Colonial Parkway if you have never had the pleasure of driving it yourself or experiencing it on a class trip. According to the National Park Service https://www.nps.gov/colo/parkway.htm The Colonial Parkway is a twenty-three mile scenic roadway stretching from the York River at Yorktown to the James River at Jamestown.  The road does it best to remind drivers of days past as the parkway does not allow semi trucks and is toll-free. As you meander though the parkway you are graced with beautiful views of the James and York rivers that run along the parkway. According to Triple A "redbuds and dogwoods decorate the roadway in spring, while fall brings an explosion of autumn colors” From an article in the Daily Press in 1990, the parkway is no place to be after dark ”At night, the mood changes. The trees form a tunnel of blackness, broken only if the moon is shining. There are no streetlights, no call boxes and no fast-food restaurants or convenience stores where a driver might find refuge in case of a breakdown”. The parkway is under the rangers' jurisdiction because it is federal land owned by the National Park Service When a serious crime is committed, the York County Sheriff's Department, the Williamsburg or James City police departments are called to assist, Neprash said.  The parkway is federal land, the FBI may also become involved in investigations. Crimemuseum.org says, "police have questioned 150 suspects in connection to these four cases, but all have been cleared.  The police attribute these eight murders to the same killer because of similarities in each case.  All of the victims were killed at or near their car, the first three being found at known lover's lane areas.  None of the victims were robbed, and sexual assault did not appear to be a motive in any of the cases.  The first and third murders were mere miles apart, and the second and fourth were committed about a half hour away from the Parkway.

Biography In the Beginning... Charlie Dunn was born and raised in Yorktown, Virginia the youngest of four boys. He was probably about five years old when his older brother exposed him to playing music. His brother played the drums and guitar showing him to a new world of artists that Charlie had never heard. One of those artists happened to be Elvis Presley. Once Charlie heard his first Elvis song he begged his mother to buy Elvis's album . Elvis In Person at the International Hotel. Charlie took the opportunity to wear the record out, listening to songs over and over doing his best to emulate his idol. While Charlie admired The King, he was very shy and it would be high school before he showed off his talent for singing. Charlie's first Singing gig happened as a result of him missing a Senior Class Day planning meeting, where his fellow committee members conveniently volunteered Charlie to be the opening musical act as Jake Blues of the famous Blues Brothers. It was Charlie's first show, where he learned how fulfilling performing could be, however it would be three years before Charlie had the opportunity to pay tribute to his idol... Elvis Presley. He decided he wanted to be Elvis for Halloween and promptly enlisted his mom to make him a jumpsuit fit for a King. He was approached at the Halloween party by an individual seeking an Elvis Impersonator, and agreed to perform for a local business. Word of mouth spread about the performance and other engagements soon followed. Charlie has developed into an extremely versatile Elvis Tribute Artist, able to perform all eras of Elvis's career, including The Classic 1950's Young Elvis, The Movies Elvis, The 1968 comeback Elvis, and of course the infamous Jumpsuit Elvis. Charlie's voice is rich and naturally lends itself to Elvis's singing style.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 5-20-22. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of May 23 and May 30, 2022.  This episode, marking the Memorial Day holiday observed this year on May 30, repeats an episode first done in 2015. MUSIC – ~17 sec – instrumental. That tune, composed during the U.S. Civil War, sets the stage for a water-related exploration of the origin of Memorial Day.  Have a listen to the music for about 35 more seconds. MUSIC – ~35 sec – instrumental. You've been listening to a version of “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight,” recorded by Chloe Benner and Stewart Scales.  The tune was composed in 1863 by John Hill Hewitt.  The title, and the lyrics associated with the tune, are from “The Picket Guard,” a poem by Ethel Lynn Beers, published in 1861.  The poem relates the loneliness, homesickness, and then sudden death of a rank-and-file soldier patrolling the dark, wooded, and deceptively quiet Potomac riverbank.  As a similar tragic fate befell tens of thousands of Civil War soldiers along rivers, ridges, and battle lines in Virginia and elsewhere, surviving family and friends began honoring fallen soldiers by decorating their graves with flowers, especially during spring.  The practice grew across both North and South, eventually becoming a spring tradition known as “Decoration Day.” On May 5, 1868, Gen. John Logan called for Decoration Day to be an annual, national holiday on May 30, and the first national ceremony was held that year in Arlington National Cemetery, near the banks of the Potomac.  After World War I, the annual observance began to include honoring those who had died in all U.S. military conflicts.  In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day an official national holiday, to occur on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day invokes very personal and local expressions of honor and remembrance, true to the holiday's origin of individuals decorating Civil War graves with flowers.  In that spirit, we close this tribute to Memorial Day with about 25 seconds of “Flowers of the Forest,” by No Strings Attached, from their 2002 album, “Old Friend's Waltz.” MUSIC – ~26 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this episode.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic issued General Order Number 11 designating May 30 as a memorial day ‘for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land.' “The first national celebration of the holiday took place May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery, where both Confederate and Union soldiers were buried.  Originally known as Decoration Day, at the turn of the century it was designated as Memorial Day.  In many American towns, the day is celebrated with a parade. “Southern women decorated the graves of soldiers even before the Civil War's end.  Records show that by 1865, Mississippi, Virginia, and South Carolina all had precedents for Memorial Day.  Songs in the Duke University collection Historic American Sheet Music include hymns published in the South such as these two from 1867: ‘Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping,' dedicated to ‘The Ladies of the South Who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead,' and ‘Memorial Flowers,' dedicated ‘To the Memory of Our Dead Heroes.' “When a women's memorial association in Columbus, Mississippi, decorated the graves of both Confederate and Union soldiers on April 25, 1866, this act of generosity and reconciliation prompted an editorial piece, published by Horace Greeley's New York Tribune, and a poem by Francis Miles Finch, ‘The Blue and the Grey,' published in the Atlantic Monthly.  The practice of strewing flowers on soldiers' graves soon became popular throughout the reunited nation. “President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed Waterloo, New York, as the ‘Birthplace of Memorial Day,' because it began a formal observance on May 5, 1866.  However, Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, also claims to have held the first observance, based on an observance dating back to October 1864.  Indeed, many other towns also lay claim to being the first to hold an observance. “In 1971, federal law changed the observance of the holiday to the last Monday in May and extended the honor to all soldiers who died in American wars.  A few states continue to celebrate Memorial Day on May 30. “Today, national observance of the holiday still takes place at Arlington National Cemetery with the placing of a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the decoration of each grave with a small American flag.  Protocol for flying the American flag on Memorial Day includes raising it quickly to the top of the pole at sunrise, immediately lowering it to half-staff until noon, and displaying it at full staff from noon until sunset. … “Many veterans of the Vietnam War, and relatives and friends of those who fought in that conflict, make a pilgrimage over Memorial Day weekend to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., where they pay their respects to another generation of fallen soldiers.” SOURCES USED FOR AUDIO AND OFFERING MORE INFORMATION On the History of Memorial Day Library of Congress, “Today in History—May 30/Memorial Day,” online at https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/may-30/.

Michael O'Brien's last bad day was July 11th, 2001. Riding his bike in New Mexico, he was hit head on by an SUV traveling 40 miles per hour and left crippled on the side of the road.  “I remember the sound of me hitting his grill… the thud I made as I crashed onto the asphalt below, and the screech of his brakes.” Wanting to make the best of the situation, Michael promised himself that if he survived, he'd stop trying to chase happiness and begin truly enjoying every day—a profound lesson we can all learn from. In today's episode, Michael shares the story of what happened on his last bad day and how he reframed his situation over the course of several months to heal his mind and body. We dive into how he discovered Pause-Breathe-Reflect meditation, what his daily practice looks like, and how you can immediately begin applying his mindset to your life. KEY TAKEAWAYS How changing the conversations we have with ourselves helps us become more compassionate when we talk with others. Why Michael had to shift his mindset to truly heal after his accident–and how the day of his injury became his last bad day. Why all events in our lives are neutral until we label them–and how Michael processes bad, angry, and sad moments in his life without letting them define his experience. Why Michael does something monumental on the anniversary of his injury every year–and why he's going on a 4,300 mile bike ride from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia this summer.

On Episode 090 of the RETROZEST podcast, Curtis celebrates the upcoming release of the Star (Studded) Trek Fan Film YORKTOWN: A TIME TO HEAL! Production on this now legendary 8mm film featuring heavy-hitters George Takei and James Shigeta began in 1985 and abruptly stopped (unfinished) in 1987, 35 years ago as of the posting of this podcast episode in 2022. It centers around the activities of a sister ship of the USS Enterprise, the USS Yorktown, upon which Lt. Commander Hikaru Sulu serves as First Officer. For over 20 years, the unfinished film was put on hiatus. However, in 2010, a Trek fan named John Atkin (who first heard about the film in 1987 via Starlog Magazine Issue #119) contacted producer Stan Woo about the unfinished film, and together they recruited a team of volunteer professionals to help finish the project. The scenes which were never filmed in the 1980s, featuring an attack on the USS Yorktown, were filmed in Vancouver in 2013. Contributors include other Star Trek Fan Film creators like George Kayaian of Starship Antyllus and Todd Haberkorn of Star Trek Continues! So now, the film is FINALLY finished 35 years later! It will be released on YouTube and Vimeo on April 5 of this year, which in the ST universe is known as First Contact Day. The finished film also features a song by Canadian artist RAYNA entitled "Into the Unknown" during the end credits. So to celebrate, the man who teamed up with Stan Woo to complete the film, Mr. John Atkin, is Curtis' very special guest on this landmark 90th episode of the RetroZest podcast! John has a lot of fun info to share about the film and his involvement in its final completion. You're in for a big time treat if your a Trek fan! Incidentally, check out the Potemkin Pictures Star Trek Fan Film The Chronicles of Lanclos, in which Curtis briefly appeared!

Midway 1942 – Vändpunkten i Stillahavskriget

Strax efter klockan 10.00 drabbades den japanska hangarflottan av ett slag som den aldrig hämtade sig ifrån och som fick en stor inverkan på krigsutgången. När de amerikanska attackplanen blickade ner kunde de inte tro sina ögon. Under dem seglade fyra stora hangarfartyg öppna för ett anfall. Slaget vid Midway den 6 juni 1942 förändrade styrkeförhållandena i Stilla havet och banade vägen för den slutliga amerikanska segern i kriget.På de japanska hangarfartygens däck rådde ett kaos av ammunition och stridsflygplan. Tre av fartygen träffades omgående och blev förvandlande till brinnande infernon. Det fjärde skadades senare och alla hangarfartyg sjönk den 4 eller 5 juni. Amerikanerna miste ett hangarfartyg, Yorktown.I detta avsnitt av Militärhistoriepodden samtalar Martin Hårdstedt och Peter Bennesved om vägen till slaget vid Midway i juni 1942 och det som skulle visa bli vändpunkten i kriget i Stilla havet. Den japanska expansionen efter anfallet på Pearl Harbor i december 1941 hade på ett halvår inkorporerat stora landområden i Sydostasien till det japanska kejsardömet. I maj 1942 stod japanerna beredda att anfalla och slutligen inta hela Nya Guinea varifrån vägen till Australien föreföll ligga öppen.Men det blev inga stora japanska framgångar mer. Den insiktsfulle amiralen Yamamoto hade redan före krigsutbrottet sagt till regeringen och kejsaren att han kunde löpa amok i ett halvt år, men sedan skulle det vara över. Han insåg amerikanernas överlägsna potential när det kom till soldater och vapenmateriel. Japan kunde inte vinna kriget som många i den japanska ledningen trodde.Men våren 1942 var detta trots allt inte uppenbart. Tvärtom hade japanerna ett klart övertag inte minst när det gällde hangarfartygskapacitet. De japanska hangarfartygs resurserna var koncentrerade till en styrka som med sina sex stora och ett antal mindre hangarfartyg var överlägsna det som amerikanarna kunde ställa upp. På samma sätt som amerikanerna hade japanerna insett att sjökriget avgjordes av flyget. De stora slagskeppsflottornas tid var över.Trots det japanska övertaget började krigslyckan sakta vända. Amerikanerna hade goda underrättelser från den japanska sidan därför att man framgångsrikt hade knäckte de japanska signalchiffren. I en vansinnesoperation den 18 april genomförde 16 amerikanska B-25 bombare från hangarfartyget Hornet en räd mot Tokyo som mentalt skapade den japanska krigsledningen. Även om räden var harmlös på många sätt visade den att USA började slå tillbaka. I och med slaget i Korallhavet i maj 1942 kunde hotet mot Nya Guinea och Australien avvärjas. Amerikanerna miste ett av sina hangarfartyg och var därmed nere på tre varav ett var skadat. Den japanska krigsledningen beslutade sig för att försöka förinta de amerikanska hangarfartygen och täppa till ”hålet” i sitt Stillahavsvälde genom ett anfall mot Midway.Slaget vid Midway inleddes den 4 juni framgångsrikt sett ur japansk synvinkel. Den lilla ögruppen Midway bombades och de amerikanska förlusterna bland flygplanen från de tre amerikanska hangarfartygen var förfärande. Men plötsligt genom en slump, en tillfällighet eller enskilda piloters skicklighet skapades en möjlighet under några minuter som blev avgörande för hela kriget. Fyra japanska hangarfartyg förstördes som inte kunde ersättas.Det finns mycket skrivet om Midwayslaget. På svenska rekommenderas Johan Lupanders Midway 1942 : vändpunkten i Stilla havet (2007).

Using more than a thousand eyewitness records, Liberty Is Sweet is a “spirited account” (Gordon S. Wood, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Radicalism of the American Revolution) that explores countless connections between the Patriots of 1776 and other Americans whose passion for freedom often brought them into conflict with the Founding Fathers. “It is all one story,” prizewinning historian Woody Holton writes.Holton describes the origins and crucial battles of the Revolution from Lexington and Concord to the British surrender at Yorktown, always focusing on marginalized Americans—enslaved Africans and African Americans, Native Americans, women, and dissenters—and on overlooked factors such as weather, North America's unique geography, chance, misperception, attempts to manipulate public opinion, and (most of all) disease. Thousands of enslaved Americans exploited the chaos of war to obtain their own freedom, while others were given away as enlistment bounties to whites. Women provided material support for the troops, sewing clothes for soldiers and in some cases taking part in the fighting. Both sides courted native people and mimicked their tactics.Liberty Is Sweet is a “must-read book for understanding the founding of our nation” (Walter Isaacson, author of Benjamin Franklin), from its origins on the frontiers and in the Atlantic ports to the creation of the Constitution. Offering surprises at every turn—for example, Holton makes a convincing case that Britain never had a chance of winning the war—this majestic history revivifies a story we thought we already knew.HOST:  Rob MellonFEATURED BREW:  Sweet Liberty Imperial Stout, The Bruery, Placentia, CaliforniaBOOK:  Liberty Is Sweet: The Hidden History of the American Revolutionhttps://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Sweet-History-American-Revolution/dp/1476750378/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1644815180&sr=8-1MUSIC:  Bones Forkhttps://bonesfork.com/

There are two sides to every story, including history. We're taught that the Battle of Yorktown was a great victory for the American Revolution, but it also played a role in embedding slavery into the groundwork of the new nation that came after. Dr. Gregory Urwin, Professor of History at Temple University, wrote about this in the Journal of the American Revolution. He joins us to explain what he learned about the famous battle and why these parts of history are so often overlooked. We discuss the contradiction of revolutionary heroes fighting for freedom while owning slaves, how our understanding of history has evolved, and why the resistance against critical race theory could derail our progress.

In this lecture, recorded January 13, 2022, Norman Desmarais will discuss recent discoveries about the Count de Rochambeau's army that counter popular assumptions—focusing primarily on the recently published diary of the Count de Lauberdière, which includes details that are not covered in any other French diaries. Serving as an aide-de-camp on General Rochambeau's staff, the young and well-educated Lauberdière provided a unique perspective of the war, including descriptions of the French army's camp in Newport, the long march to Yorktown, the siege and capture, and a fascinating examination of the people and their distinctive colonial culture.

1780: The Hard Winter

The absolute worst winter in the 18th century was the “hard winter” of 1779-1780. The winter that year was bad. Durning the course of the winter, New Jersey had 26 snowstorms and 6 of those are considered to be blizzards! Every saltwater inlet from North Carolina to Canada froze over completely.  In fact, New York Harbor froze over with ice so thick that British soldiers were able to march from Manhattan to Staten Island. George Washington decided to place his army at Morristown, New Jersey for winter quarters. When they arrived at the encampment site in November 1779 there was already a foot of snow on the ground. The worst of the snowfalls dropped more than four feet of snow with snow drifts over six feet on January 4, 1780. The temperature only made it above freezing a couple times in the whole winter. Officers remembered ink freezing in their quill pens and one surgeon recorded that “we experienced one of the most tremendous snowstorms ever remembered; no man could endure its violence many minutes without danger to his life. … When the storm subsided, the snow was from four to six feet deep, obscuring the very traces of the roads by covering fences that lined them.” Because of the severity of the winter, provisioning almost 10,000 soldiers were nearly impossible. A soldier in the Connecticut Line, Joseph Plumb Martin remembered “We were absolutely literally starved; – I do solemnly declare that I did not put a single morsel of vitials into my mouth for four days and as many nights, except for a little black birch bark which I gnawed off a stick of wood, if that can be called food. I saw several of the men roast their old shoes and eat them, and I was afterward informed by one of the officer's waiters, that some of the officers killed and ate a favorite little dog that belonged to one of them.” Even General Washington noted after the winter that “The oldest people now living in this Country do not remember so hard a winter as the one we are now emerging from. In a word the severity of the frost exceeded anything of the kind that had ever been experienced in this climate before.” The Continental army remained in camp until the end of May 1780 recuperating from the harsh winter. It would still be more than a year until the decisive battle of the war in Yorktown, Virginia and Washington's army would still struggle to overcome battle and nature – but none as harsh as that winter.
