Did You Know?  February is Black History Month.

Even though slavery existed throughout the original 13 colonies, nearly all the northern states, inspired by American independence, abolished slavery by 1804. As a matter of conscience, some southern slaveholders also freed their slaves or permitted them to purchase their freedom. Until the early 1800s, many southern states allowed these manumissions to legally take place. Although the Federal Government outlawed the overseas slave trade in 1808, the southern enslaved African-American population continued to grow.

  1. I found un unidentified Native American photo under ceremony category that I can identify. It is Mandan and part of the 4 day ceremony called the Okipa (O’kiipa). It is the photo of the man painted with the light rings on his body. I always love looking at old pictures and trying to find my own tribe and I did because I am Mandan.

  2. I pray you had a good Christmas, if it applies, but I also want to wish You and your family a Very Happy
    and Healthy New Year. I again want to thank you for all you do for those of us who want to Learn and Discover what our History was about. Since our history school books are portrayed incorrectly and incomplete, YOUR Publication is full of research that can be trusted.
    I learn something new or forgot and your publication is perfect for my mind travels as I read.

    Thank You and GOD Bless You and your Family. Meant for both of you Dave.
