    Full title: Archaeologists uncover secrets of historic Revolutionary War battle site BOSTON – Archeologists using 21st-century technology are mapping out the exact spots British soldiers and Colonial militiamen were standing as they fired at each other during a pivotal skirmish on the first day of the American Revolution. Parker's Revenge, as the fight is known, occurred on April 19, 1775, after the battles of Lexington and Concord as the redcoats retreated to Boston. Capt. John Parker, commander of the 77-member Lexington militia, had met the 700-strong British column on the green at 5:30 a.m. Eight of his men were killed...

  • Charlottesville City Council tears into Lincoln Project over tiki torch stunt

    The Charlottesville City Council rebuked the Lincoln Project on Thursday over a tiki torch stunt the group organized last week to protest a campaign event for Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin (R). In a letter to Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt, the Charlottesville City Council said the anti-Trump activist group "tore open a still-healing wound in Charlottesville" with the stunt. The council further criticized the group, stating, “Your post-demonstration press release promised the potential for more such painful memories.

    Everyone knows there are good times and bad times, but how did things get this way? It’s a mystery that has kept the greatest minds scratching their heads since the beginning of time. Time flies, marches on, and sometimes just stands still. You can buy time, be on borrowed time, or run out of time, but there’s a first time for everything, and the third time’s the charm. As Ancient laws may be revered; brand new laws can only aspire to reverence. An infant can be loved and cherished, even wondered at, but only with the ripeness of years can...

    The Lincoln Project said on Friday that it would be filing an ethics complaint against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for allegedly taking part in a Breitbart News interview this month at a university football stadium. The anti-Trump organization claimed that the University of Texas at Austin allowed conservative news outlet Breitbart News to conduct an interview with Abbott this month at their football stadium. The Lincoln Project said that one month earlier, they were allegedly told by the university that an ad critical of Abbott’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was supposed to air on ESPN during a...

    Subtitle: Democrats Learn the Lesson of 1860. The Lincoln and Trump elections flipped the card table of American politics. As in 1860, there was no middle ground in 2016 between the two factions. One works to preserve the United States. The other despises first American principles, publicly rejected the President-elect, and pursues disunion. This faction is called the Democrat Party. Compromise is possible when the parties differ on how to reach a common goal. Every sale in the marketplace is a compromise. The seller is satisfied with a certain sale point just as the buyer has a buy point. Equally...

    In the "German Democratic Republic" they tell the story about a weary old man who tries to gain entrance into the Red Paradise. A Communist Archangel holds him up at the gate and severely cross-questions him: "Where were you born?" "In an ancient bishopric." "What was your citizenship?" "Prussian." "Who was your father?" "A wealthy lawyer." "What was your faith?" "I converted to Christianity." "Not very good. Married? Who was your wife?" "The daughter of an aristocratic Prussian officer and the sister of a Royal Prussian Minister of the Interior who persecuted the Socialists." "Awful. And where did you live...

    Steve Schmidt, cofounder of the disgraced, anti-Trump Lincoln Project, said the January 6 Capitol protests are “likely to kill a lot more Americans than were killed on the 9/11 attacks,” which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans on U.S. soil. Speaking at the Lincoln Project’s virtual July 7 town hall discussing what the far-left PAC is doing to “defend democracy in 2022,” Schmidt echoed the sentiments of his “friend,” MSNBC political analyst Matthew Dowd, suggesting the January 6 Capitol protest will be worse in terms of casualties than 9/11.

    In the life of President Abraham Lincoln, there are any number of dramatic and momentous moments. For the fate of the nation, there is perhaps none more consequential than the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. That document provided “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.” The proclamation did not complete the job of ending slavery. It applied, as written, only to slaves held in states, which were not then under federal control, and therefore its immediate practical impact was limited. Still, it was monumental in its impact....

    Archer Alexander’s fame came largely after his death. Depicted in bronze kneeling before President Abraham Lincoln, his story also received renewed attention recently amid recent calls for monuments connected to slavery and colonialism to be pulled down. In the wake of global anti-racism protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd in the U.S., such controversial monuments became the target of Black Lives Matter protesters across the world, including the UK and Belgium. In the U.S., statues of Confederate leaders and the explorer Christopher Columbus were toppled. In Washington, D.C., protesters made attempts to tear down the controversial Emancipation Memorial,...

    WASHINGTON, Wednesday, Feb. 27. Adhering to long-established custom, Mr. LINCOLN walked two or three miles before breakfast to-day. Senators GWIN, WILSON, CRITTENDEN and BAKER were the earliest callers upon him to-day. The Mayor and Common Council of the city paid their respects to him officially this morning. The Mayor welcomed him to the city in very kind terms, and Mr. LINCOLN responded. They were then presented to Mrs. LINCOLN, who received them very sociably, and with the most gratifying absence of formality. Hon. JOHN BELL remained with Mr. LINCOLN for an hour and a half before his breakfast hour. Most...

    The two men came from extremely modest means, one even more than the other. Primarily because each understood the rare power of self-education and the gift of books, both went on to have lives of remarkable celebrity, accomplishing extraordinary things for our nation.One was born in a humble one-room cabin in Kentucky. The other was born into slavery in Maryland. In time, they became two of America’s greatest, most consequential leaders during our nation’s most trying time.Frederick Douglass taught himself how to read, recognizing in his earliest years that education could be “the pathway from slavery to freedom.” He escaped...

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot is confronting the “hard truths of Chicago’s racial history,” launching a public process to review the fate of 41 statues and other monuments, including some of former presidents Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant and William McKinley. Reasons for making the list include promoting narratives of white supremacy; presenting an inaccurate or demeaning portrayal of Native Americans; celebrating people with connections to slavery, genocide or racist acts; or “presenting selective, over-simplified, one-sided views of history.” Besides five statutes of Lincoln, others on the list include the General John Logan Monument in Grant Park; the General Philip...

    To a hall filled with young men on a cold Illinois night in January 1838, Abraham Lincoln delivered his earliest recorded public remarks. For the 50 years prior, the living rooms, parlors, and public offices of our country had been teeming with the brave Americans who’d fought, struggled, and suffered to create these United States. “Nearly every American,” Lincoln recalled, “had been a participator in some of its scenes.” But now that generation was dying off. What no invading army could, time, he lamented, had itself accomplished: “They were a forest of giant oaks; but the all resistless hurricane had...

    Thousands of San Francisco residents are banning together to stop the city from renaming 44 schools that honor so-called “racist” historical leaders — including Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, critics told the Post. More than 7,200 people have signed an online petition slamming the school board’s controversial vote to scrap the names of former US presidents and war heroes with ties to racism or oppression. The goal is to drum up enough public criticism to convince board members not to strip away the names during an April 19 meeting — where they plan to decide how specifically to...

    A statue of Abraham Lincoln with a freed slave appearing to kneel at his feet - optics that drew objections amid a national reckoning with racial injustice - has been removed from its perch in downtown Boston. Workers removed the Emancipation Memorial, also known as the Emancipation Group and the Freedman’s Memorial, early Tuesday from a park just off Boston Common where it had stood since 1879. City officials had agreed in late June to take down the memorial after complaints and a bitter debate over the design. Mayor Marty Walsh acknowledged at the time that the statue made residents...

    The article, “The Separation: A Proposal for a Renewed America,” was apparently written under the pseudonym “Rebecca,” which the author indicates was taken from a series of letters written by Abraham Lincoln using the same pseudonym. The author surely knows that Lincoln was challenged to a duel by James Shields, the sitting senator from Illinois, as a result of the “Rebecca letters.” Lincoln accepted the challenge—he chose broadswords as the weapons, and actually took instructions from a military officer in preparation. Shields was an experienced Army man in his own right, considered an expert with the broadsword. But Lincoln designed...
