While conducting research for a magazine article about a legendary Mississippi local I encountered artifacts which indicate there is substance to historical accounts of an unknown ancient civilization. One thing led to another and researcher Dr. Robert List and I located three enigmatic sites which support the theory of an ancient metal trade and the presence of an ancient Mediterranean culture in Mississippi.
This book also examines who the first Mississippians were? How they got here? And what happened to them? The time period of their presence was 10,000 BC and earlier, and the story of their likely origin and decline falls well outside of what is presented in history books.
Finally, I present a far different picture of the Native Americans living in Mississippi at the time of first contact with Europeans. This is largely based on a historical document published by the State of Mississippi prior to the adoption of the ideals of Manifest Destiny by scholars and historians of the era. The idea was that immigrants of European descent had a God given right to claim the lands of North America despite the prior occupation of indigenous cultures. A policy was adopted among academics that any evidence which depicted Native Americans as anything but savages was to be disregarded, this paved the way for thousands of sites and structures to be destroyed or built upon.

Join The Paranormal Outlaw, Melissa Duck, Misty & Ashley Conner. . Our guest tonight is Devon Belanger. Devon is the CEO of Mysterious World TV. She is also the Director/Producer and Host. Devon also does camera/audio/lighting and now DVD Cover Graphic Design as well. Devon was born in the United Kingdom and has traveled all over the world and now resides in Florida. Devon's interest in the paranormal and unexplained has been a lifelong curiosity. Having always been very aware of "activity" going on around her, and having many uncanny predictions that came true, Devon was unnerved growing up and tried hard to block each occurrence from her mind. Around the age of 18, she began to endure terrifying, involuntary astral projection incidents, ghostly encounters and witnessing poltergeist activity, Devon never felt comfortable sharing her experiences with anybody else..... until she met Angie in 2006 and opened up and shared many of her secrets. Since their friendship blossomed all those years ago, Devon and Angie have gone on many investigations together and recently managed to "solve" an unsolved triple homicide from 1982 via her team of psychics and the use of ghost boxes! They also began to attend conventions and met some great people with similar interestsand many had differing viewpoints and theories. This is when Mysterious World TV was created. This is everybody's chance to get up close and personal with many different lecturers, authors, historians, celebrities, adventurists, theorists and investigators. An opportunity for each of you to enjoy the contents of one (or more) of their lectures, and to also learn more about them as individuals via video-on-demand, 24-7, 365 days a year!
Kosovo Field is a fairly flat plain between the Lab and Sitnica Rivers in southern Serbia several miles northwest of the town of Pristina (although the recently-declared "Republic of Kosovo" refuses to recognize Serbian rule). Bordered on both sides by mountain ranges, the plain was one of the main crossroads of the Balkans since ancient times, giving many an invading army north-south access to the peninsula.
The size and composition of the two armies is doubtful. The best estimates by modern historians put the Serbian coalition army at about 25,000 men, with the Turkish force comprising nearly 40,000. Both armies formed into the traditional right wing, center, and left wing, with each division comprising two distinct lines.
The Serbian right, commanded by provincial lord Vuk Brankovic, totaled around 5000 men. The front line was made up of the "mala vlastela." These were the Serbian minor nobility who were basically similar to the Turkish akincis, who were mounted horse archers wearing lamellar armor (small hardened leather pieces or metal plates held together with leather ties). The second line was infantrymen, using spears, axes, javelins, and bows (possibly also crossbows).
Prince Lazar commanded the Serbian center, which likely mustered 15,000 men altogether. The front line was composed of "veliki vlastela," greater nobles wearing lamellar armor and armed mainly with lances, maces and bows. The second line comprised more Serbian foot soldiers. Due to the size of the center, its formation was much wider than the two wings.
According to Chief D.L. "Pappy" Hicks (facebook LEFT Click only!))
The Texas Cherokees (website) were driven out by force In battles fought on the 15th and 16th of July 1839.
No one left of his own accord. Many DID NOT flee Texas, but hid out in the woods until the army left. Many returned to their fields and started to live as "white" citizens for survival purposes.
Many lost their Cherokee heritage; some of them hung on to them and have never wavered about being Cherokee. We wavered only when it came to living within the bounds of Texas.
Remember, a red man couldn't vote or hold office until 1924. Even after that period, it was best to be "Black Dutch," or something that was dark, than it was to be and American Indian. People shouldn't depend entirely upon historians and their books to give them facts about the red man.
It is also impossible to "discover" historical events with a couple of books. Especially since I have read so many written by people who only rely upon other "historian's" document "facts." Not all court decisions are given with justice; just legal.
Those decisions by Texas and US Courts have not made the treaties with Spain, Mexico and Republic of Texas invalid.
Since the dawn of recorded history, mankind has been scattering his many tools of war across the globe. Sometimes lost in the heat of battle, and other times just thrown away by warriors too tired to carry them further, these implements of war have often become treasured finds of archaeologists, historians, and collectors around the world. Among the most prized, since the dawn of combat aviation in the early 1900s, are the wrecked and crashed aircraft that have been lost in both war and peace. However, such recovery and restoration efforts are not for the faint of heart, or those without substancial financial resources.These efforts can take place anywhere from polar ice packs in Greenland, to swamps deep inside savannah country. And despite this, across the globe, aircraft recovery teams are continuing their dirty, difficult, and often dangerous efforts to find and preserve the lost warplanes of bygone eras.
To learn more about recovering the wrecks of downed aircraft, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is aviation historian Nicholas "Nick" Veronico, author of the books Hidden Warbirds I and II from Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press). A long-time collector of warbird memorabilia, Nick Veronico is an expert on the wide variety of recovery and restoration efforts for wrecked military aircraft across the world. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions to both gentlemen, in what will be a lively hour that is part Indiana Jones, and part museum restoration.
It is a rare mind, which can see through the eyes of a competitor or enemy at the moment of truth in competition/conflict. Such minds are treasured within military forces, though rarely cultivated due to the regimented lifestyles and mindsets of such personnel. So any book or other media which can provide military personnel the chance to look at situations through the eyes and minds of enemies often has value, long after the death of the author or the events depicted. Such a book is JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN. Written by Captain Tameichi Hara of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) shortly after the end of World War II, his book was one of a handful of such memoirs translated and published in the United States during the 1950s. Since that time, JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN has provided naval officers, historians and general readers with an amazing window into the minds of Japanese naval commanders during the Second World War, along with a primer on how to survive and prevail in combat situations of all kinds.
To better understand the value of books like JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN and the people who write them, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. He will be joined by father/son U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) authors and naval historians Tom and Trent Hone. Together they will tell the story that Capt. Hara and his original editorial team, all long since dead, cannot. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and comments, on a rare phenomenon in the military history world, which needs to be encouraged.
Nowhere in the history of the United States, has there ever been a greater master of the combat art of seapower then Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, USN. Assigned as Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (CINCPAC) in the darkest days following Pearl Harbor, Adm. Nimitz brought to his command a rare strategic genius, a genuine respect for the dignity of individuals, and an unusual sense for assessing the value of people, places, platforms and actions. Universally revered by his peers, subordinates, and even enemies, Chester Nimitz remains a towering figure in the history of the U.S. Navy and America as a nation.
During his tenure commanding CINCPAC, Adm. Nimitz had his staff construct and maintain a daily log of his activities, thoughts, ideas and the days events. Uniquely transparent with regards to the day-to-day events of the Great Pacific War, the log became known as the “Nimitz Graybook." Classified for years after the end of the war in the Pacific, access to the Graybook has been limited to historians and researchers at selected sites, greatly constraining it's worth to authors and writers who might benefit from its unique insights and observations. So it was with genuine excitement that news of a newly curated digital version of the Nimitz Gradebook being released to the public earlier this year was received. And that excitement was more than justified.
To learn more about Adm. Nimitz and the Graybook, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guests this week will be U.S. Naval War College librarian and curator Dr. Allen Benson, along with historian and author Al Nofi. Dr. Benson is a member of of the team that produced the newly curated version of the Graybook, while Mr. Nofi is a historian with expertise on Adm. Nimitz. Please listen, call in, and enjoy a great hour of American history!
Often times African American people sell the land without knowledge of mineral and oil rights. How often do we talk about the mineral and oil rights in our families? When was the last time you visit the courthouse to check on the mineral and rights oil, and gas lease? Have you consult with an attorney? Are you discussing these important matters at your family reunion?
Minerals rights and oil and gas leases differ from surface rights. A landowner may own the surface land but not the mineral rights of that land. The owner of the land should check on whether he/she has ownership of mineral rights or title of the land.
Joining the host is genealogists and family historians Tonia Askins and Melvin Collins. Their family history runs deep in Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parishes on the family branches of the Dudley,Williams, Cade Family.

This situation occurs very rarely, and the last two times it occurred something big happened to God's chosen people, the Israelites. In 1948 Israel became a nation, and in 1967 Israel won the 6-Day War (miraculous) and established themselves in Jerusalem. The solar eclipse, which occurs between the two sets of two blood red moons) lands on 1 Nisan. 1 Nisan is the first day of the first month of the Assyrian calandar, and it is considered to be the day the universe was created. Nisan is also accepted as the month in which Abraham, Jacob and Isaac were born and died, according to Jewish historians.
The following events may accompany these prophetic signs: 1) Israel attacked and saved by the Lord (Ezekiel 38). 2) Damascus attacked and destroyed (Isaiah 17).
