The Red River Rebellion, November 19, 1869. Following the purchase of Rupert's Land from the Hudson's Bay Co., the Canadian government attempted to divide and redistribute the land that was already home to Metis and First Nations. Forming a provisional government, the Metis negotiated the entrance of the Province of Manitoba to Confederation. At the same time, the Metis imprisoned pro-Canada settlers and summarily executed Thomas Scott. This act inflamed eastern Canada; in May an expedition under Colonel Wolseley was sent West to establish federal authority.

The imprint of Mary Queen of Scots' ring on the banister that was once in Fotheringhay Castle. Fear of her impending execution caused her to grip it so hard it left a mark. #historygeek #fotheringhay #maryqueenofscots #oundle #ilovehistory

Location of the the assasination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sofia on June 28, 1914. Currently listening to Dan Carlin's, Blueprint for Armageddon. He paints a crazy picture of the day. After a failed assasination attempt earlier in the morning by a separate co-conspirator, their driver took a wrong turn and the couple ended up stopped directly in front of this corner. Gavrilo Princip stepped forward and cemented his place in history and singlehandedly set the gears in motion for WWI.

That there was once an Erie Canal, plowed by ox and hand, cut and dug by the inexperienced. The canal exists today, rerouted, revised, and useful.

The glorious schloss schonbrunn, former summer residence of the Habsburgs which was built to rival Versailles with 1000+ rooms. This is where Kruschev met Kennedy for the Vienna summit in 1961 and Napoleon resided when he occupied Vienna 1805-9. It's also where the 6 year old Mozart played his first concert #schonbrunn #schlossschonbrunn #palace #summerpalace #habsburg #vienna #austria #historic #historicbuilding #kruschev #kennedy #viennasummit #napoleon #amazing #itshuge #historygeek #history #historyclass #ilovehistory #exploration #sightseeing

CHIMERA OF AREZZO has an inscription on one of its right legs. Although many interpretations, most agree that it reads along the lines of being dedicated to the Etruscan god of day, Tin.

I managed to find woodland, even in London! Thank you @tom_stayte for introducing me to Epping Forest - what a stunning bit of nature and history, so close to the city. It used to be a royal hunting ground, and I wouldn't have been in the slightest bit surprised to come across a medieval hunting party in full regalia, processing down one of the broad rides.

On November 19, 1863, at the dedication of a military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln delivers one of the most memorable speeches in American history. In just 272 words, Lincoln brilliantly and movingly reminded a war-weary public why the Union had to fight, and win, the Civil War.
