  • Chew The Phat: Talking Civil War Reenacting with Guest Bob Philbin

    in Military

    Reenacting the American Civil War began even before the real fighting had ended. Civil War veterans recreated battles as a way to remember their fallen comrades and to teach others what the war was all about. The Great Reunion of 1913, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, was attended by more than 50,000 Union and Confederate veterans, and included reenactments of elements of the battle, including Pickett's Charge. Modern reenacting is thought to have begun during the 1961–1965 Civil War Centennial commemorations. Reenacting grew in popularity during the 1980s and 1990s, due in large part to the success of the 125th Anniversary reenactment near the original Manassas battlefield, which was attended by more than 6,000 reenactors. That year, Time magazine estimated there were more than 50,000 reenactors in the U.S

    WPH: Sarah K Interviews Corinne on How to Sew for Profit

    in Women

    There was a day and age when every young girl was taught to sew in their Home Economics class at school, if not at home with their mom or grandma. But those days have long since gone by; and today, someone that can sew has a world of opportunity to make money working from home. How much money you can make depends on your skill level, equipment, availability to do jobs quickly, and your creativity.


    A basic sewing machine and the ability to repair torn seams,replace zippers,hem garments, and/or make simple alterations is enough to get you started.More advanced skills and equipment will be required to offer higher quality services.


    You’ll need to start by determining what kind of sewing you enjoy and want to do on a regular basis. You may want to start with something simple, and work your way up as your speed and skill increase.


    Here is a short list of sewing projects just to get you thinking about what could bring you a regular source of income:


    – Minor repairs and alterations.


    – Home decor items (pillows, blankets, curtains, drapes, place mats, napkins).


    – Bags, totes, purses.


    – Soft children’s toys.


    – Doll clothes.


    – Receiving blankets.


    – Aprons.


    – Canvas items for boats, yachts, camping.


    – Banners (shops that produce printed banners usually need to have raw edges finished).


    – Wedding gowns, veils, bridesmaid dresses.


    – Prom or fancy party dresses.


    – Suits, vests, ties,cumberbunds (cummerbunds).


    – Custom outfits for choral groups, dance teams, drill teams, karate classes,period reenactment groups, local sports teams,etc.

    DAN ARELLANO & CHIEF RUFUS DAVIS on the "Texas Rising" mini series"

    in Business

    Statement of Dan Arellano, "On Saturday June 13, 2015 at the Mexican-American Cultural Center in Austin we met with scholars to discuss the mini series “Texas Rising,”  It is my own opinion that the series reeked of Anglo Superiority, and American exceptionalism and that’s after forcing myself to view the episodes, but truthfully I refuse to see the remainder, I have had enough. When you have people like Ann Coulter demonizing an entire nation you have to wonder what her  and the History Channels motives are or is all this nothing but Tea Party politics; didn’t our governor just allocate 800 million for border security? Also the History Channel is no more about history than Fox News is about the news."


    Dan Arellano has been an activist for almost 40 years. He was a member of the Austin Optimist Club. He is a member of the Tejanos in Action and a past commander of this Veterans Organization. He is also a professional actor appearing in Machete Kills along side Cuba Gooding Jr in a speaking role. He is also the Co-Host of the Eddie Arevalo Spotlite Show. He is currently lecturing at the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum in Austin.
     
    He has been doing the reenactment of the Battle of Medina in Losoya Texas.
     
    Dan Arellano Author/Historian
    President Battle of Medina Historical Society


    CHIEF RUFUS DAVIS discussed the recent walk out from the set of the Adam Sandler movie by Native American actors. The actors refused to participate realizing their ancestors were being portrayed as ignorant savages. We discussed how proud we all were at the heroic gesture from these actors. He also reminded us that Mexicans are also indigenous and he encouraged us to be proud of our roots. We also discussed our own Tejano re-enactors and how they continue to participate not realizing they are helping to perpetuate a myth, especially the myth of the Alamo.
