Did you know? After initially being struck at the Philadelphia Mint in September of 1926 more Oregon Trail Commemoratives would be struck at the San Francisco Mint in October of the same year, making this the first commemorative struck at multiple U.S. Mints.

The White House announcement that next year's G7 economic summit will be held at President Trump's Doral International Resort has raised questions about whether this violates the Constitution's foreign emoluments clause, which seeks to prevent elected officials from profiting from their office. To learn more about the domestic and foreign emoluments clauses and current emoluments-related lawsuits against the president, with arguments from the plaintiff's and defense's sides, click LINK IN BIO for a free lesson from CRF. Includes a background reading and culminates in a Civil Conversation (CivCon) in which students deliberate key issues raised in the text in a small-group setting. #emolumentsclause #teachcurrentevents #socialstudies #civics #apgovt #usgovt #ushistory

In the mid-1800s, there were many men in America who did not have the right to vote.

And here’s Flashback Friday with a flashback to once upon a time in the US of A when there was such a thing as an emolument clause (look it up) and said clause forced a young southern gentleman by the name of Jimmy Carter to sell his peanut farm before he could set foot in the White House as president! Yes imagine that! I’m sure this was necessary to make sure that peanuts harvested on his farm didn’t make it into those little bags served at take off on Air Force One (yeah I know, another flashback) and thereby making certain that the president wouldn’t be using his presidency to make any personal financial gains! Yes imagine that hahaha, that was actually once upon a time a fully understood and fully accepted part of being president of the US of A! I know, hilarious right? Just like once people actually had to stick a finger in a hole of a circular plastic plate and move it around several times in order to call somebody on the phone!

Dolley Madison was an amazing, courageous woman! She did not let the possibility of an attack during the War of 1812 dissuade her from her responsibilities. She held her ground until the last possible moment at the President's house. On her way out she noticed a painting of George Washington and did not want the British to deface it. Dolley implored her servants to break the frame and simply remove the painting. Her actions showed #respect resourcefulness, and resulted in the saving of a precious piece of American history.

Are you ready for this week's #thenandnow? If not, be prepared! This shot is of Weybosset Street during the 1916 Preparedness Day Parade. Providence's celebration was just one of many that were held throughout the nation in conjunction with the Preparedness Movement. The movement, which emerged in 1915, sought to prepare the United States for their impending entry into the First World War. While many opposed American involvement in the war (e.g. POTUS Woodrow Wilson), scores of others (e.g. former-POTUS Teddy Roosevelt) supported the efforts to bolster the US military and accrue popular support. . . In the next day's issue of the Providence Journal, it was reported that "Thousands upon thousands of men, women and little children crowded the route of the Rhode Island preparedness parade yesterday and remained through the heat of midday, through the downpour of the late afternoon into the chill of the evening, applauding and encouraging the marchers and giving to the State's plea for adequate defence[sic] of the flag a spirit of enthusiasm which approached, if not equalled[sic], that of the host which bore the Stars and Stripes through the streets." . .

A rugged outdoorsmen from the hills North Idaho, Ray Johnson was the perfect candidate for the elite 10th Mountain Division during World War II. The men of the 10th were trained extensively in the doctrine and technique of alpine ski troops prior to deploying to Italy - ready to fight in some of Europe’s most inhospitable terrain. In combat Ray and his friends lived up to their elite monicker, reeking havoc on well entrenched German defenders through the culmination of the war.

Happy Alaska Day!!! On this day in 1867 the formal transfer of power over Alaska shifted from Russia to the USA for a measly $7mil! The official flag raising happened on Castle Hill in Sitka which I had a chance to check out earlier this week. This is a pic of the Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka - one of the richest collections of Alaska Native history. Highly recommend!! AmaZing place. Happy bday, Alaska!

Yesterday I shared some photos from Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland. This morning I wanted to share photos from his birth home in Tupelo, MS. Elvis was born in what they would call a shotgun house. That means it was small, two rooms (a kitchen and bedroom), and you could stand at the front door and shoot a shotgun straight out the back door and not hit anything! Needless to say, Elvis came from humble beginnings.⁣ His family did not have much and were very poor like most of the area at the time. In 1935 Elvis was born in this home about 35 minutes after his identical twin brother Jesse Garon, who was stillborn. His mother was told she could not have anymore children so the parents doted on their one son, Elvis. Times were hard, but by all accounts Elvis was loved and well taken care of. His father, Vernon, had an eighth grade education and like many, struggled to find work during the great depression. He served a 9 month sentence for forging a $4 check, and later went on to work for the WPA started under the Roosevelt Administration. After many hardships, the Presley’s moved to Memphis to stay with family for better opportunities, but not before buying Elvis his very first guitar.⁣ This is one of my favorite stories of Elvis’ childhood because we now know where it led him. For Elvis’ 11th birthday his mom took him to Tupelo Hardware Store to buy a gift. Elvis desperately wanted a bicycle or a rifle. After Elvis’ mother Gladys heard how dangerous both of these could be, she settled on a guitar instead. It cost $6.95 and changed the course of history! Sitting on that front porch swing I couldn’t help but think about the hopes and dreams Gladys and Vernon probably had for their son, and although they had little to give, it is evident they nurtured and loved him. Elvis truly lived the American Dream and is a testament to the notion you can be whatever you want to be, no matter where you come from. 🖤

“Inspiration Point on W.P. and Y.R.R., Alaska-Sawtooth Range in Background.” On October 18, 1867, the United States formally acquired the Alaska territory from Russia for less than 2 cents per acre. While the 586,412 square mile acquisition was unpopular at the time due to the baron landscape, discovery of gold in 1896 sparked renewed enthusiasm as citizens rushed into the territory. Alaska later became the 49th state on January 3, 1959. The name Alaska is derived from the Aleut word alyeska, which means “great land.” ⠀ ⠀ #stereoview Published by The Keystone View Company.⠀ ⠀ Keystone-Mast Collection, UCR/California Museum of Photography, University of California at Riverside.⠀ ⠀ *Swipe for #anaglyph version and original stereoscopic negative pair.⠀ ⠀ #alaska #alaskaterritory #inspirationpoint #mountains #sawtoothrange #whitepassroute #history #historic #todayinhistory #onthisday #ushistory #unitedstateshistory #americanhistory #3d #stereoscopichistory

On October 18, 1587 (432 years ago) PilipinX workers aboard La Nuestra Señora de Buena Esperanza, a galleon ship, landed on the shores of Morro Bay, California. Traveling eastward along The Manila Galleon Trade (a shipping route between Manila and Acapulco) the galleon had suffered a broken mast in September and, upon discovering land, sent a reconnaissance mission to explore further inland for provisions and lumber. This area was home to the Chumash people; upon being seen observing their galleon in the bay, the Spanish decided to make contact with them... and claim their land. After contact was made with the Chumash, it got hostile real quickly. While fleeing back to their ship, two crew members died by javelin, including one “Indio Luzones.” Although many of us announce our landing on Morro Bay as a milestone, I see it as indicative of our future struggle (today’s #fahmchallenge word) in America, as our earliest arrival on this foreign land was forced upon us by white supremacy and colonization, and we were literally sacrificed while in the service of helping them conquer other Indigenous peoples and lands. #art #painting #drawing #digitalart #portrait #selfportrait #selfie #figurativeart #poc #aapi #pilipinx #filipinoamerican #filipinoamericanhistorymonth #fahm #history #ushistory #decolonize

The Framers at the Constitutional Convention spent months debating and discussing what form of government would best protect the people and limit the powers of a federal government. In the end, they agreed on a republican form of government where the people would have the ultimate political power.

William Howard Taft was the 27th President of the United States. A Republican, he served 1 term between March 4, 1909 and March 4, 1913. In 1921, he was appointed by President Harding to be Chief Justice of the United States and he is the only President to have served in both positions. During Taft's presidency, two states entered the Union: New Mexico and Arizona and by the end of his presidency, there were a total of 48 states in the Union. The Taft card from our game HistoryPlunge is from a portrait of William Howard Taft at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery by William Valentine Schevill, oil on board, c. 1910, gift of William E.
