This Day in History: December 15, 1791; The first ten amendments, aka the Bill of Rights, becomes the law of the land after Virginia is the 10th of 14 states to ratify the first ten amendments, thus giving congress the 2/3 majority it needed to pass into law.  The first Congress actually sent the states 12 amendments but two were not ratified then.  The first, a law concerning the system of popular representation, has never been ratified.  The second one was finally ratified- more than 200 years later in 1992, after congressional members finally agreed on their own payment system.  Yep that last one sounds about right. 🙄😂#droppingknowledge#history#historygeek#nerd#nerdygirl#thisdayinhistory#billofrights#jbpop#end420shame

Who can guess where this is? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ it was one of my favorite museums I've ever been to. If I lived in this city I would go to this free museum all the time and spend days reading about the artifacts. 🤓 *Hint: Europe* oh the things my eyes have seen! —————————————————————— 🌎B L O G thethingsmyeyeshaveseen.com —————————————————————— #whereintheworld #museum #traveldestination #travelblog #blog #blogger #ancientegypt #travelgram #seetheworld #guesswhere #globetrotter #unitedkingdom #solotravel #budgettravel #freeinlondon #london #travelblogger #travelpics #travelphotos #wanderlust #seetheworld #nerdtravel #historygeek

Corporal Bob Roberts of the North Shore New Brunswick Regiment of the Canadian army searches the 222 cm (7 feet 3.5 inches) tall German soldier Jakob Nacken in the summer of 1944 during the Battle of Normandy. Dusseldorf-born Nacken was working in a circus in America when war broke out and returned to the Fatherland to be conscripted into the German Army. He was 81 when he passed away in 1987. . #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #secondworldwar #worldwar #war #military #history #militaryhistory #uniform #army #amazing #historybuff #historygeek #historynerd #historylover #historic #historical #historia
Amazing fact: Operation Wandering Soul took place during the Vietnam War,it was a propaganda campaign exercised by U.S. Forces during the Vietnam War. The Vietnamese belief is that the dead must be buried in their homeland, or their soul will wander the earth aimlessly in pain and suffering. Vietnamese feel that if a person is improperly buried, then their soul wanders constantly.  Engineers of the U.S military recording eerie sounds and altered voices – which pretended to be killed Vietcong  for use in the operation, with the intended purpose to cause retreats and the lowering of enemy morale. There is not much info on if the operation had records of success.  #history  #war #warhistory #warphotography #military #militaryhistory #army #historychannel #historygeek #historybuff #historian #historiansunion #combat #vietnam #vietnamwar #usarmy #usmilitary #retro #classic #vintage #photography #instagood #facts #dailyfacts #battle

History.com has some recommendations for last minute gifts for History Lovers or Geeks like me. I loved these two. The gold earrings go back to Egypt’s Fatimid Period (11th century). Sold by Metropolitan Museum of art. The second is a State Coin ring.

No filter or editing at all? This camera phone is incredible. Getting to the Angel is a bit dangerous for pedestrians, but the views are worth it. Thanks Mexico :)
Maybe a trip back is due in the new year I could easily spend a whole day there #historygeek #konigstiger #kingtiger #ww2 #militaryhistory
This photo was taken at RNAS Hatston in April 1942. The aircraft taking off is an SB2U-2 Vindicator of VS-72. The torpedo bombers in the foreground are TBD-1 Devastators of VT-7. These US Navy aircraft were at RNAS Hatston while their carrier, the USS Wasp (CV-7), was making her second delivery run of Spitfires to Malta. Wasp’s Air Group conducted anti submarine patrols and cooperated with Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm units while waiting for their carrier to return. #navy #usn #naval #tbddevastator #sb2uvindicator #usswasp #royalnavy #fleetairarm #ww2 #worldwar2 #military #usa #america #american #historygeek #historybuff #historynerd #unitedstatesmilitary #history
