    Third Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Jonesboro, Illinois September 15, 1858 MR. DOUGLAS' SPEECH. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I appear before you today in pursuance of a previous notice, and have made arrangements with Mr. Lincoln to divide time, and discuss with him the leading political topics that now agitate the country. Prior to 1854 this country was divided into two great political parties known as Whig and Democratic. These parties differed from each other on certain questions which were then deemed to be important to the best interests of the Republic. Whig and Democrats differed about a bank, the...

    The recent finding of a 19th century silver bracelet in Alamo Mocho, in the desert of Baja California, represents the first material evidence of presence of the Mormon Battalion, which camped at the site before integrating to the 1847 Mexico-United States War (Mexican War). The discovery took place after a sandstorm uncovered archaeological material. Specialists of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) began exploration at the site afterwards. The jewel represents a clear testimony for Mexican and American historians that Mormons camped in Alamo Mocho approximately for 3 days, before their integration with the 1847 war, fact only...

    This early summer is the 230th anniversary of when American Colonists and British soldiers clashed outside Boston and began the American Revolution in 1775. On June 14 that same year the Continental Congress officially recognized the armed New England farmers and militiamen that had spontaneously gathered at Cambridge, Mass., as a Continental Army and named George Washington its commander. On this day every year, soldiers around the world commemorate June 14 as the birthday of the United States Army, and remember when Gen. Washington established its standards of honor, discipline and professionalism. These traits have carried the Army through the...

    'That level of dialogue doesn't merit comment' (CNN) -- A top U.S. civil rights figure on Saturday criticized Mexican President Vicente Fox's comment that Mexican immigrants to the United States take jobs "that not even blacks want to do." The Rev. Jesse Jackson called the remark "a spurious comparison" with "ominous racial overtones." A Mexican official defended Fox later in the day, saying his description was not meant as an insult. "The president didn't make a declaration in the racist sense; of course there are those who interpret it in that way," Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Derbez told a reporter...

    CENTREVILLE — Technical Sgt. Willie F. Overfelt never lived to walk on U.S. soil after April 7, 1945. The young World War II soldier, a member of the Army’s 63rd Infantry Division, died in battle in Germany that day. Now, nearly 60 years after his death, visitors to the Camp Van Dorn Museum of Centreville will see Overfelt’s name engraved on a memorial plaque — along with his battle helmet, which was found by a German soldier and returned. Sgt. Overfelt, along with the tens of thousands of fellow soldiers from the “Blood and Fire” 63rd Infantry and the 99th...

    Admin Mod this is chat stuff. I has galled my kibes, for many years, that there is not a monument on the Mall in DC for the Veterans of the Mexican War. I propose that we erect a Statue of the Mississippi Rifles to represent the regulars and volunteers from all States that fought in that war. I admit that my ancesors had the stupidity to volunteer and thus helped give us Kaliforinia, Mormon Battialion, but cut me some slack, nine women died in Nam and they got a statue. None of the cut and thrust of the bayonette, disgusingly...

    Michael Stravato for The New York Times In 1857, Mexican-American freight haulers were hanged on an oak tree at the courthouse in Goliad, Tex. GOLIAD, Tex., July 16 — In history books, the killing of more than 300 Texan rebels by Mexican troops here has long been known as the Goliad Massacre. But to many residents of Goliad, with its 18th-century Spanish fort and towering monument to the dead, that brutal episode in its history is still open to interpretation. At the heart of the dispute, largely between Anglos and Mexican-Americans, is the porous definition of who is a Texan...
