Poor guy believes this to be true. You may check out the full article here: --👑 https://www.postandcourier.com/news/charleston-man-who-dons-pharaoh-garb-gets-dna-results-linking/article_1a6cfc4c-45d2-11e9-9523-7fdc075593f4.html --👑 👑To be honest, in all the excitement I believed this to be true for myself. You can go back and my previous posts. 23&Me will not stand by these results. 👑Many of grandparents who knew are dead now, but they knew nothing of being from Africa until the pale mankind began this narrative. 👑Many of us have used our connection with our Devine self, common sense, and intelligence to wake up and debunk these false claims and hearsay as well. Their records verify that we were civilized and thriving here at America when the colonizers came. 👑At their courts they presume that you are not a human because that's what you tell them you are... You agree with them when you say that you are a PERSON named as they assume you are named which is on their documents. 👑I decided to do a 23&Me DNA test just to prove that I was a human at court so then the court should be forced to prove otherwise, or else respect my human rights. 👑 They want you to act as a corporation and therefore only afford you civil rights--when they choose to of course. Civil rights are for corporations (which are property of they government). 👑However, I found it interesting to say that I was linked to the DNA pharoah Ramses III just like the guy above and many others; just Google it as I did and you will see. 👑But ultimately this test is used for entertainment purposes because the seller will not stand by anything they hypothesize in the report. If the test is truthful, it debunks the "Slaves out of Africa theory" at least. 👑There is a much bigger scheme at play here, but I'm not willing to show my entire hand and everything I know here. Just a little something for you all to think about.

Lancaster rear gunner, possibly 44 Sqn RAF. At the outbreak of the Second World War, as part of Bomber Harris' No. 5 Group, the squadron was commanded by John Boothman, winner of the Schneider Trophy in September 1931. It was one of only two squadrons to operate continuously throughout the war. There were two squadron commanders who held the Victoria Cross – Wing Commanders Roderick Learoyd and John Nettleton. In 1941 the squadron was renamed No. 44 (Rhodesia) Squadron in honour of that colony's contribution to Britain's war effort, and also to recognise that up to 25% of the ground and air crew were from Southern Rhodesia. The badge is based upon the seal of Lo Bengula ,the chief of the Matabele on conquest. The seal shows an elephant which, in the case of this unit, is intended to indicate heavy attacks. No. 44 received its first Avro Lancaster, BT308, in late 1941 and became the first squadron to convert completely to Lancasters, flying their first operational missions in the aircraft on 3 March 1942.[6]Total sorties and losses for the war were: Handley Page Hampden – 2,043 sorties (43 lost) Avro Lancaster – 4,362 sorties (149 lost, plus 22 destroyed in crashes) The squadron suffered the third highest overall casualties of RAF Bomber Command. In July 1945 the squadron exchanged places with No. 75 Squadron in RAF Mepal in Cambridgeshire to prepare for transfer to Tiger Force in the Far East for the war on Japan.

The Fate Of A Continent Chapter 45: Issy Prussian General Zieten had taken Issy on July 2nd during the action in the previous chapter. The Provisional Government was ready to surrender but Marshal Davout wanted to have another try at breaking the lines before surrendering. At 3:00 AM on the 3rd the French III Corps advanced in two columns to attack Issy. The French still had 20 canons available for the assault which opened up with case shot. The Prussians had constructed earthworks around Issy during the night but they were not yet built up enough to protect them from that much artillery fire. The 12th and 24th regiments as well as the 2nd Westphalian (who had joined the advancing Coalition) Landwehr fought bravely against the onslaught and were supported by half a battery of howitzers. There were heavy casualties on both sides but eventually the Prussians forced these two French columns to withdraw, but they returned almost immediately having been reinforced. Zieten moved the 2nd Brigade in to support the men at Issy and requested that Blücher send aide as well and begged General Thielemann next to him to advance and threaten the French flank. Zieten did not receive support from any of the other generals because he did not need it. His men held Issy against the odds. The French continued their artillery barrage and tried assaulting the Prussian positions a few more times but to no avail. By 7:00 AM the French ceased fire and sent a message to Zieten, whose Corps was the closest to the capital offering their surrender.

Reposted from @the_amateur_historian - As Iranian and pro-Assad forces battle against the ISIS terror group throughout eastern Syria: this image captured on August 7th 2017 by an unidentified ISIS fighter depicts the twenty-six year old Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Third Lieutenant Mohsen Hojaji as he is being held at knifepoint by an anxious ISIS fighter just moments after he was captured. Lieutenant Hojaji was serving as an IRGC adviser to Syrian government forces at the time and on August 7th his position near al-Tanf was hit with a surprise assault by ISIS. After two hours of fighting, an ISIS suicide bomber managed to get through the pro-government lines and detonate his explosives. All resistance was finally crushed by this act and a wounded Lieutenant Hojaji was one of the few who were captured alive. However, after posting a video of his capture for propaganda purposes, ISIS brutally beheaded him with a knife on August 9th: a mere two days after he was first captured. Lieutenant Hojaji's body was later given to the Lebanese Hezbollah by ISIS as part of a ceasefire deal between the two groups on August 31st, and Iran later recovered and buried Hojaji on September 28th 2017 with full military honors in his hometown of Najaf Abad. ISIS was later declared to be territorially defeated in Syria after its final stronghold of Al-Baghuz Fawqani fell to allied forces on March 23rd 2019. _____________________________

The Soviet Memorial in Treptower Park is the larger of the three Soviet memorials in Berlin and, like the ones in Pankow and the Tiergarten, also serves as a war cemetery. The focal-point of this memorial is the 30ft, 70-tonne statue of a Soviet soldier carrying a young child, wielding a sword and crushing a swastika with his feet. The statue depicts Sergent Nikolai Massolow who on 30th April 1945 rescued a young Berlin child who had become separated from her mother and strayed into the battlefield. This occurred in the area of Potsdamer Brücke as forces under the command of Marshall Chuikov were attempting to cross the last obstacle to the Nazi government district, the Landwehrkanal. Just a kilometre to the north that day Hitler committed suicide.

Another Pottery Post of the Indus Valley Civilization City Lothal Notice the highlighted regions in the painted Terracotta pottery unearthed here. The first figure depicts a bird sitting high in the tree with food (looks like fish). The second one depicts an animal (looks like a fox from its tail) looking at the bird and eyeing the food. Does the setting sound familiar to the Aesop's Fable of "The Fox and the Crow", where the fox flatters the foolish crow into singing, thereby causing the latter to drop the food and the former to grab the same? The Indus Valley Civilization City Lothal predates Aesop by atleast 1300 years. And what if the pot got manufactured in Harappa or Mohenjodaro, which are even older than Lothal? Seems that this particular fable or Aesop had its origins not in Greece, but in India, in none other than the Indus Valley Civilization.. What say Archaeology Experts?

Is this megalithic real? It sure is! Welcome to the town of Setenil de las Bodegas in Spain, where around 3,000 inhabitants are living quite literally, under a rock!⁣ .⁣ It is believed people have been living here since pre-historic times. This is based on evidence for habitation by prehistoric man in nearby caves, such as the Cueva de la Pileta, which is known for its cave paintings. However, the continuous occupation of the area means most of this evidence would have been erased over time. It is more certain that the area was populated by the time the Romans arrived in the area during the 1st century AD.⁣ ⁣ Follow @thehumanoriginproject⁣ 🔁 @ancientdestinations

At some point over the past 24 hours this page reached the 25K mark, an absolute milestone and realistically a point I didn’t think I’d reach when I first started posting about American and Russian pre-Dreadnoughts three years ago. This has continued to surprise me with its growth, despite my sometimes-brash method of responding to the tired statements about Texas sinking or reactivating the Iowas. The community created around this page is one I’m exceptionally proud of - intelligent, curious people that can really drive an educational conversation again and again, which I think is quite special. The collection of personalities that contribute to the comments on my posts is excellent, and I value and respect all of you tremendously both as fellow history buffs and also for giving my page a shot; you make this possible and keep it going. Some of you have been around since the very beginning of this page, and with that in mind I wanted today’s photo to be a return to the roots of this project - an American pre-Dreadnought, USS Indiana, the lead ship of her class and the eventual recipient of the BB-1 hull designation over the USN’s first battleship, Texas. - I remain passionate about the subject matter, and have worked increasingly harder to protect my content. Those of you who have responsibly shared my posts and captions with credit given, or asked to use one of the fairly numerous photos I’ve taken and posted, I cannot thank you enough for setting such a positive example on a platform where plagiarism can quickly become rampant. This is critical, as I want to build and grow this page ever further, and have some exciting things in the works; so please, continue to tag friends, share posts, spread the word, and set the standard for sharing history digitally. - Lastly, time has been a luxury lately, and posts feel sporadic. I am working on some changes to correct that lack of balance, and should return to a more practical posting schedule in the near future. Thanks again, to all 25,000 of you, for following along in this exploration of the engineering marvels that shaped our world through the largest battlefields on the planet: the oceans and seas.

Maid in the Shade I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with the Commemorative Air Force’s B-25J Mitchell, Maid in the Shade, during one of her flights yesterday. The Maid is a rare bird as she actually has a WWII combat record. She served with the 437th Bomber Squadron, 319th Bomb Group our of Serragia Airbase in Corsica. The Maid flew fifteen combat missions between 4 November and 31 December 1944, mostly bombing railroad bridges. I was able to get a great video of starting up, another of her taxiing and one of her taking off.

The US was desperately short of aviators after Pearl Harbor. Hence the creation of the Women Airforce Service Pilots. There job was to fly aircraft to combat theaters so men could be used for combat instead of shuttling aircraft. Hap Arnold stated " Now in 1944, it is on record that women can fly as well as men." The WASP pilots also had one of the scariest jobs in the Army Air Corp: towing targets for aviators to train on with live ammunition. Another dangerous situation that these women had to brave was if they needed to bail out, because according to Margaret Taylor, a WASP pilot " the parachutes were way to big". These women were some of the bravest in the world, but unfortunately the program was canceled after a couple years. For more information on the WASP, there are plenty of books written about them but I haven't read any so I can't suggest a specific one.

Sunday spotlight: The Belgic Shako. The New Pattern (or ‘Belgic’) Shako was authorized for use in 1812, but only began appearing in North America during the second half of 1813. Replacing the ‘stovepipe’ shako, the Belgic featured a false front, tuft on the side, and cords. This particular shako features the green cords, tuft, and bugle badge of the 100th’s Light Company. White cords and tuft were worn by grenadiers, and a white over red tuft by regular line companies; both would also wear a larger brass plate with the King’s cypher.

Michelle Erickson (1960-present) is a contemporary ceramic artist based in Hampton, VA. In an experimental project, Erickson partnered with @wiltonhousemuseum to select objects from their collection to 3D print. Through the use of this technology, she was able to re-imagine historical pieces as you see featured here in “3D Lover”. Taken from a much smaller c.1770 ceramic figurine, the heads were enlarged and printed in black and white as a commentary on the history of gender and race. Erickson’s artwork shows how technology can be used to transform and create new art. You can view "3D Lover" in our new exhibit "STEM in the Historic House".
