Extractions: Welcome to the home of the skeptical, irascible, doubting, iconoclastic Captain Critical, aka Captain Barb, whose pontificating will try to amuse, bemuse, irritate and generally annoy anyone bold enough to stay long enough to read the ramblings of a self appointed distaff critic who will continue to remind you that women are veterans too! Did you know that there are almost two million women veterans? From the American Revolution to Panama, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq , women have served in some way in every conflict. Not that they were legal in the early days. History tells us that thirty three thousand women served in World War One and almost 500,000 took part in World War Two. During the Korean era 120,000 women were in uniform and seven thousand were deployed in theater during Viet Nam. During Desert Storm seven per cent of the total U.S. forces deployed were women - over forty thousand of them. On these pages you will find the history and accomplishments of those women who have served this country - voluntarily - since it's beginning.

Extractions: The Indian Wars were a long-running sereis of conflicts between the United States and the Native Americans . However, the name is a bit misleading in the sense that it suggests that the Native Americans were a unified bloc fighting against the United States. In actuality, they were a diverse collection of tribes and clans, often with different interests. It was in part this lack of unity that lead to their eventual defeat. Table of contents 1 Colonial-Era Conflicts of North America 6 Later events (1860-1891) King Philip's War - Dummer's War - Pequot War French and Indian Wars - Pueblo rebellion - Pontiac's Rebellion Although conflict with Native American tribes in North America had occurred frequently for the British colonies, the first major conflicts with Native Americans occurred in the . A series of Native American insurrections against the United States led to victories against isolated armies in the early 1790s, in part due to the large coalition formed between various tribes. However, the Native Americans were decisively defeated by a large U.S. army at the
Extractions: Nearly every person who served in the armed forces has left a record of his or her involvement. Service records, pension records or bounty land records can provide a wealth of information although they were not maintained intentionally for the benefit of genealogists. Before beginning a search, you should know something about the ancestor. In what war did they fight? What service? What branch (cavalry, infantry or artillery)? Are there family stories or souvenirs that provide clues? Keep in mind that some family lore may have exaggerated their deeds. For further information on beginning your search, refer to: Neagles, James C., U.S. Military Records: Guide to Federal and State Source, Colonial America to Present,. Ancestry, 1994. Source The Source: A Guidebook of American Genealogy. (Chapter 9, Research in Military Records), Ancestry, 1997. Military Service Records: A Select Catalog of National Archives Microfilm Publications , National Archives Trust Fund Board, 1985. Pension application files, based on Federal service, usually include both personal and military service information. Pension records are generally available for service from the Revolutionary War through 1916, and may be requested from NARA using NATF Form 85. Pension for service in the Confederate States of America forces were not authorized by the Federal government until 1959. However, some of the former Confederate states did authorize pensions. The various states archives keep these files.
Extractions: Victory in the Spanish American War made the U.S. a nation with global interests. In one brief clash of arms the U.S. acquired Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippine Islands from Spain. In addition, Cuba was granted independence, with Spain assuming its national debt. Many Americans were appalled by the new U.S. foreign policy, which they equated with imperialism. Andrew Carnegie, the steel magnate and philanthropist, offered to buy the Philippines for $20,000,000 and give the country its freedom. Many other Americans, however, talked of manifest destiny and the duty of the U.S. to spread its form of civilization far and wide. April 24 - The Spanish American War officially began when Spain declared war on the U.S. The following day Congress passed a declaration of war, effective April 21. Battle of Manila Bay At the Battle of Manila Bay, the six-ship Asiatic squadron of Commodore George Dewey decisively defeated a larger but outgunned and underprepared Spanish fleet. The U.S. flotilla emerged virtually unscathed, with only eight wounded. The Spanish fleet was destroyed, with heavy casualties. The action cleared the way for U.S. occupation of Manila in August.
Extractions: General Information America's War Hero Gen. John J. Pershing Boyhood Home State Historic Site interprets the life of one of America's war heroes. His small town upbringing supplied him with a work ethic that earned him the highest military rank his country had to offer - General of the Armies of the United States. John Joseph Pershing, throughout life known as "Jack," was born Sept. 13, 1860. The Pershing family moved into the house in Laclede when John was six and stayed there until 1885. There is little in Pershing's boyhood history to suggest that one day he would become a national war hero. His typical boyhood included fishing, hunting and mischief making. Chores on the family's two farms introduced him to strenuous labor early in life. In the panic of 1873, the Pershings lost all their holdings with the exception of the home and one of the farms. John and his brother, James, gained the complete responsibility of the farm when their father took a job as a traveling salesman. Pershing also accepted a teaching position at Prairie Mound School and eventually saved enough money to attend Kirksville Normal School (now Truman State University), where he received his teaching degree in June 1880. He returned to Prairie Mound School until the fall of 1881. It was then that Pershing saw a newspaper article concerning the competitive exam for entrance into the
Extractions: General Information North Missouri's Rare Natural Jewel When citizens of Laclede first expressed an interest in honoring Gen. John J. Pershing, commanding general of the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I, the most suitable tribute seemed to be a park encompassing the land that Pershing loved to roam in his youth. In 1937, the state purchased the first tract of land, setting in motion the preservation of what is considered a rare natural jewel in a predominantly agricultural landscape. The 3,565-acre Pershing State Park is an excellent example of the wetland landscape once common in northern Missouri. Virtually all north Missouri rivers and streams have now been straightened and channelized; their flood plains converted to crop and pasture land. However, a portion of Locust Creek still meanders across the flood plain within the park and keeps alive the rare example of what these lands once held. Its dynamic force still shapes the landscape by forming oxbow lakes, sloughs, shrub swamps, marshes and wet prairie. Along the creek is a large bottomland forest of oak, hickory, cottonwood, sycamore and silver maple, which has been designated a Missouri natural area. Bird watchers can enjoy a huge variety of birds throughout the park, including great blue herons, barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, migrating songbirds, waterfowl and wintering bald eagles. On the prairie, visitors will find cordgrass, compass plant, spiderwort, blue flag iris and the rare pale green orchid. The endangered massasauga rattlesnake can be found in the park along with deer, turkey, raccoon, river otter, mink, beaver, muskrat and several species of frogs.

Extractions: UNITED STATES ARMY CHAPTER 3 The American Revolution: First Phase The American Revolution came about, fundamentally, because by 1763 the English-speaking communities on the far side of the Atlantic had matured to an extent that their interests and goals were distinct from those of the ruling classes in the mother country. British statesmen failed to understand or adjust to the situation. Ironically enough, British victory in the Seven Years' War set the stage for the revolt, for it freed the colonists from the need for British protection against a French threat on their frontiers and gave free play to the forces working for separation. In 1763 the British Government, reasonably from its point of view, moved to tighten the system of imperial control and to force the colonists to contribute to imperial defense, proposing to station 10,000 soldiers along the American frontiers and to have the Americans pay part of the bill. This imperial defense plan touched off the long controversy about Parliament's right to tax that started with the Stamp and Sugar Acts and ended in December 1773, when a group of Bostonians unceremoniously dumped a cargo of British tea into the
