- On March 31, 1963, President John F. Kennedy with some friends and members of his family drove from a church service at Camp David, Maryland to tour the Gettysburg Battlefield. Their last stop was the Eternal Light Peace Memorial (Peace Light) [Top photo] — From the Gettysburg Daily: “The Peace Light at Gettysburg was said by Jack Valenti, who was an aide to President Lyndon B. Johnson, to be the source for the eternal flame on President Kennedy’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery (Bottom). Valenti who was later president of the Motion Picture Assocation of America, related the story when he toured the Gettysburg battlefield, circa 1987, with Licensed Battlefield Guide Bob Mullen. Valenti stated that President Johnson ordered him to take care of the Kennedy funeral arrangements. Mrs. Kennedy requested that there be an eternal flame on the grave at Arlington. There was confusion among the military about what she was requesting. Valenti went back to Mrs. Kennedy who told Valenti that they had toured the field of Gettysburg, and saw the flame on the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. This is what she wanted on President Kennedy’s grave. Jack Valenti told Licensed Battlefield Guide Bob Mullen, that ‘a few telephone calls were made to the National Military Park at Gettysburg for construction details of the Eternal Peace Light Monument.’” — The second photo is JFK looking at the monument — President Kennedy was also invited to speak for November 19 Centennial ceremony of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery. He was unable to attend because of a scheduled trip to Dallas. #gettysburg #pennsylvania #potus #president #kennedy #presidentkennedy #arlingtonnationalcemetery #arlington #virginia #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #military #history #ushistory #americanhistory #civilwarhistory #militaryhistory #civilwar #uscivilwar #americancivilwar #travel #travels #traveling #travelling #traveler #traveller #travelgram #travelingram #travelstagram

- The other day I was talking to a coworker and I can't remember how it came up, but I said "You wanna know who was a badass bitch? HARRIET TUBMAN!" And the I proceeded to gush about Harriet Tubman until they walked away. And continued to think about her after that. Every time I feel like I can't accomplish some task, I remember that Harriet Tubman escaped slavery by navigating through the forest in the dark of night. And then later she would return to the American south as a spy for the Union during the Civil War. Harriet also helped to free dozens and dozens of other enslaved Americans. . And it's not like my feelings and struggles aren't valid, because they are. Saying "some people have it so much worse" is not usually a compassionate response to yourself or anyone (right, @brenebrown?). But I feel inspired by Harriet Tubman, and I'm so lucky to be able to include her in Our Tarot deck as the Chariot. Her card sends us a message of unwavering, unyielding rock-solid determination and movement forward. Today's #fridayvibes are all about making progress (not perfection). I'm keeping Harriet in my mind's eye for inspiration, since she does this progress thing so much better than I do. ❤️🔥 . . Do you want Our Tarot deck and guidebook? There's a handy-dandy pre-order link in my bio 😎 . . . . . #harriettubman #abolitionist #blackgirlmagic #woc #fuckwhitesupremacy #americanhistory #civilwarhistory #tarot #ourtarot #tarotcards #feminism #feministartist #magickal #spiritjunkie #everydaymagic #womeninhistory #thechariot #womanowned #witchesofinstagram #witchyways #flashbackfriday #fbf

- On This Day in History September 22, 1862: President Abraham Lincoln issued the initial Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all slaves in rebel states free as of January 1, 1863. The final Emancipation Proclamation would be issued on the listed date for slaves in rebel states to be free which was January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation only covered those slaves in the rebel states and not those slaves found in border states and territories. It wouldn’t be until the passage of the The 13th Amendment on December 6th, 1865, which abolished slavery in the United States. #EmancipationProclamation #AbrahamLincoln #Slavery #EndofSlaveryinRebelStates #UnitedStatesCivilWar #CivilWar #CivilWarHistory #WarBetweentheStates #AmericanHistory #USHistory #ConfederateHistory #CivilRightsHistory #CivilRights #BlackHistory #BlackStudies #AfricanAmericanHistory #AfricanAmericanStudies #OnThisDayinHistory #ThisDayinHistory #HistoryToday #TodayinHistory #History #Historia #Histoire #HistorySisco

- During WWI, the Gettysburg battlefield, specifically the third day battlefield, became home to Camp Colt. Camp Colt was a tank training grounds commanded by one Dwight D. Eisenhower. It would eventually house and train over 11,000 men. The camp was so ill-equipped that Eisenhower ended up attaching machine guns to trucks which would then fire on targets in front of Big Round Top — Eventually Eisenhower was given Renault FT-17 tanks with which to train. The top picture was taken in 1918 and shows one of these tanks cresting what was once the bank portion of the Bliss Barn. On July 2 and 3, 1863, the barn changed hands several times as each side tried to establish their skirmish lines in this area. Finally on the morning of the 3rd, prior to Pickett’s Charge, the 14th Connecticut was ordered to burn the farm. The white monument is the 12th New Jersey Infantry and the closest monument is the 14th Connecticut Infantry Monument. As you can see in the top and third photo, the Army during WWI wasn’t too concerned with preserving the battlefield that was still owned by the War Department. — In the second photo the red circle is the Bliss Farm. As Confederates marched past during Longstreet’s assault they would’ve seen the barn and house smoldering. The green circle is the copse of trees that were the focal point of the assault. #gettysburg #pennsylvania #newjersey #connecticut #wwi #worldwar1 #worldwarone #confederate #union #military #civilwar #uscivilwar #americancivilwar #history #ushistory #americanhistory #civilwarhistory #militaryhistory #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #travel #travels #travelling #traveling #traveler #traveller #travelingram #travelgram #travelstagram

- Last residence of “Old Snapping Turtle”, Gen. George Gordon Meade, lighthouse builder, commander of The Army of the Potomac, Hero of The Battle of Gettysburg. Following the war, he lived in this house, which was gifted to him by the grateful residents of the City of Philadelphia for his service to our nation; he was even named an honorary member of the PA Society of the Cincinnati. He took his last breaths here on Nov. 6, 1872 #civilwarhistory #georgemeade #philadelphia #philadelphiahistory #rittenhousesquare
