Account by an Impartial Observer Having accidentally arrived at Boston upon a visit to a Friend the evening before the meeting of the body of the People on the 29th of November, curiosity, and the pressing invitation of my most kind host, induced me to attend the Meeting. Participant account by Samuel Cooper This concise but a very detailed account was written by Major Samuel Cooper, a participant who was only 16 at the time of the event but later fought many battles of revolutionary war with great bravery to earn his high rank. Participant account by John Andrews The house was so crowded that I could get no further than the porch. Boston Tea Party Historical Society
Roald Amundsen originally began a career studying medicine at the University of Christiana (now the University of Oslo), but dropped out in order to go to sea. His first Antarctic trip was in 1899 on the Belgica expedition when he was one of the first party ever to over winter in Antarctica as the ship became trapped in the pack ice and drifted until it broke out in the following spring. He established his credentials on this trip as a leader, ice master and as a resourceful expeditioner. Roald Amundsen
Black Holocaust in America Between 1824 and 1951 there were over 300 events classified as “White Race Riots” in which entire white communities turned on and destroyed entire Black communities and murdered Blacks in mass. There were 26 such major events and hundreds of smaller ones in major cities across the US during the summer of 1919 alone. This period has been tagged by historians as “ The Red Summer of 1919” , because the events all happened from May to October of that year and the blood of their victims literally painted the streets of America. That year, tens of hundreds of Black Americans were killed, maimed and made refugees for economic, social, political and other reasons both real and imaginary.

Native American Rain Dance When reading about the history of our country and in particular, the Native Americans many people have heard of a ceremonial tradition that is known as the Native American rain dance. The Native American rain dance was the most common among the Native American tribes in the southwest of America, since during the summers there they would have long droughts. The droughts could bring serious problems for the natives since having some rain was essential for their survival and their food crops. The rain dance would usually take place in the driest month of the year, so usually this ritual was performed in mid to late August ever year. The Native American rain dance was performed by both the men and women of the tribe, unlike other tribal rituals where only men were allowed. The tribal traditions of the Native American Rain Dance
