Dred Scott was an enslaved person taken by his master from a “slave state” to a “free territory.” Scott filed a lawsuit suing for his freedom in 1857 (Scott vs. Sanford) claiming that since he lived in a “free territory” he is entitled to his freedom.  The Supreme Court ruled against him citing that individuals who were descendants of Africans were not protected by the constitution and therefore could never be a citizen or sue in federal court in.  This case inflamed the national debate over slavery.  The anti-slavery elements of the North expressed overwhelming dissent regarding the ruling, which later proved to be an indirect catalyst for the American Civil War. #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #westandontheshouldersofgiants #resist

So I was watching a #documentary on #filipinos and their #historical relationship with #korea ( #southkorea ). My #dad and #uncle Marcelo fought in the Second World War, but it was said that Uncle Marcelo continued his #service for the #unitedstatesarmy (Philippines Scouts) and died in the #koreanwar . Well, I saw the roster on the video of those who gave their lives and there was uncle’s name: Marcelo. Never been prouder of the confirmation. Mom always told me that Uncle Marcelo was the nicest man. I could only hope to live up to them and live a decent, peaceful life that #thegreatestgeneration forged for us all. #ww2 #worldwar2 #unitedstatesarmedforces #hero #heroes #history #philippinehistory #philippines #peacenotwar #memories #family #faith #love #humanity #honor #courage #ancestry #learnfromthepast #westandontheshouldersofgiants
So here's the skinny. One day left until moving day. The rest of my tools will be moved monday and next sunday the electricians will be over to install the lights and new power points. After that we'll get the walls painted and start moving in machinery and work benches. I'm guessing I'll be back up and running within two weeks. This move has almost broken me! I couldn't have done it without my lady Dr Lollypop and my mate Cam. Giants I tell ya!

Found this in the lab. A picture of Phileas Q. Knickerbocker, one of key members of The Great Maker Movement in the early 1900’s. Pretty inspiring. #tinkerlab #tinkerhistory #tinkerhero #westandontheshouldersofgiants #handsomefella
My old article in American Survival Guide @americansurvivalguide magazine about survival cordage.  Edited issue by the prolific and awesome @estelawilded  I have recently been experimenting again with making various bowstrings from a variety of materials but have met with mixed results. I am always in awe of what our ancestors could produce with resources at hand. #americansurvivalguide #prepper #survival #bushcraft #cordage #tacticalvirtues #bushcraft #westandontheshouldersofgiants #estelawildernesseducation #basultoacademy
