Under pressure, the mouth speaks when the brain is disengaged, and, sometimes unwittingly, the gearshift is in reverse when it should be in neutral. If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view and see things from that person's angle as well as from your own.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do. Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets. It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
A market is never saturated with a good product, but it is very quickly saturated with a bad one. The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.
The highest use of capital is not to make more money, but to make money do more for the betterment of life. The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.
Capital punishment is as fundamentally wrong as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as a cure for poverty. You will find men who want to be carried on the shoulders of others, who think that the world owes them a living. What's right about America is that although we have a mess of problems, we have great capacity - intellect and resources - to do some thing about them.
The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.
Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services.
I cannot discover that anyone knows enough to say definitely what is and what is not possible. To understand ourselves it is important to understand our ancestors, and a part of them, and their heritage, lives on in us today. To the world the American Indians seemed like a forgotten people when the English colonists first arrived and began to occupy their lands. I want to give special thanks to my cousin, Mary Hilliard, for her assistance and encouragement in researching and preparing this book.
Wherever possible I have tried to find at least two sources for the genealogical data, but this has not always been possible.
I have also found Franklin Elewatum Bearce's history, Who Our Forefathers Really Were, A True Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors, to be very helpful. It is certainly possible that such a record may contain errors, but it is also very fortunate that we have access to this record as it presents firsthand knowledge of some of the individuals discussed in this book. 8 Newcomba€? Cpt. Sometime before the colonial period, the Iroquoian tribes began moving from the southern plains eastward across the Mississippi River and then northeasterly between the Appalachians and the Ohio River Valley, into the Great Lakes region, then through New York and down the St. Though they were neighbors and had similar skin color, these two groups of Indians were as dissimilar as the French and the Germans in Europe. Federations, as well as the individual tribes, were fluid organizations to the extent that the sachem was supported as long as he had the strength to maintain his position. Belonging to a federation meant that an annual tribute had to be sent to support the great sachem and his household, warriors had to be sent if he called for a given number to go to war, and strictest obedience and fidelity was demanded. Some of these federations had as many as thirty member tribes supporting their Great Sachem, although many of these tribes would be counted by more than one sachem, as any tribe that was forced to pay tribute was considered as part of that Great Sachem's federation. Any member of the society who dishonored himself, in anyway, was no longer worthy of the respect of his people. When viewing the typical Indians of America, one would describe them as having a dark brown skin. They wore relatively little clothing, especially in summer, although the women were usually somewhat more modest than the men.
The English resented the fact that the Indians wouldn't convert to Christianity as soon as the missionaries came among them.
The various tribes of New England spoke basically the same language and could understand each other well. There are many words used commonly in our language today that were learned from these New England Indians: Squaw, wigwam, wampum, pow-wow, moccasin, papoose, etc. Today there is little doubt that prior to Columbus's voyage, the Norsemen sailed to the coast of North America early in the eleventh century.
We do not have a record of all of the European contact and influence on the Indians in the early years of exploration because the greatest exposure came from the early European fishermen and trappers who kept no records of their adventures, as opposed to the explorers.
In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazano wrote the first known description of a continuous voyage up the eastern coast of North America. As the fur trade became increasingly more important to Europeans, they relied heavily on the Indians to do the trapping for them. Another problem with which the Indians had to contend was the White man's diseases for which they had no tolerance nor immunity.
In the spring of 1606, Gorges sent Assacumet and Manida, as guides on a ship with Captain Henry Chalons, to New England to search for a site for a settlement.
In 1614, Captain John Smith, who had already been involved in the colony at James Town, Virginia, was again commissioned to take two ships to New England in search of gold, whales or anything else of value. Dermer wanted to trade with the local Indians of the Wampanoag Federation and asked Squanto if he would guide them and be their interpreter.
Derner was given safe passage through Wampanoag land by Massasoit and soon returned to his ship.
When the Pilgrims left England in the Mayflower, their stated intent was to establish a settlement on the mouth of the Hudson River, at the site of present day New York City.
The Pilgrims returned to the Mayflower and, after many days of exploration, found a more suitable location. On March 16, 1621 the Pilgrims were surprised by a tall Indian who walked boldly into the plantation crying out, "Welcome! The Pilgrims gestured for Massasoit to join them in their fort but, he in turn, gestured for them to come to him. When the amenities were ended, the English brought out a treaty they had prepared in advance, which specified that the Wampanoags would be allies to the English in the event of war with any other peoples and that they would not harm one-another; and that when any Indians came to visit the plantation they would leave their weapons behind. After the ceremonies were ended, Governor Carver escorted Massasoit to the edge of the settlement and waited there for the safe return of Winslow. Part of Massasoit's willingness to make an alliance with the English must be credited to his weakened condition after suffering from the recent epidemics which left his followers at about half of the strength of his enemies, the Narragansetts. In June of 1621, about three months after the signing of the treaty, a young boy from the Colony was lost in the woods.
When the English could not find the boy, Governor William Bradford, (who replaced John Carver, who died in April) sent to Massasoit for help in locating the boy.
That summer Governor Bradford sent Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins, with Squanto, to Pokanoket (Massasoit's own tribe, on the peninsula where Bristol, R.I.
From this trip of Winslow's, we learn more about the daily life of the Indians in this area.
Massasoit urged his guests to stay longer but they insisted they must return to Plymouth before the Sabbath. Less than a month following this visit, Massasoit sent Hobomock, a high ranking member of the Wampanoag Council, to Plymouth to act as his ambassador and to aid the Pilgrims in whatever way they needed. Hobomock and Squanto were surprised at what they heard, and quietly withdrew from the camp to Squanto's wigwam but were captured there before they could get to Plymouth. Although the Narragansetts and Wampanoags were historical enemies and continually feuding over land, they did not usually put hostages of high rank to death. Normally, treason was punishable by death and Massasoit would certainly have been justified in executing Corbitant for his part in the plot against him but, for some reason, Massasoit complete forgave him. Their first harvest was not a large one but the Pilgrims were.happy to have anything at all.
During the winter, a rivalry developed between Squanto and Hobomock, the two Indians who now lived continually at Plymouth.
According to the treaty he had signed with Plymouth, they were to turn over to him any Indians guilty of offense. In June and July, three ships arrived at Plymouth with occupants who expected to be taken in and cared for. In the winter of 1622-23, Governor William Bradford made trips to the various Indian tribes around Cape Cod to buy food to keep the Pilgrims from starvation. Next, Standish went to Cummaquid (Barnstable, MA.) where Iyanough was Sachem of the Mattachee Tribe. Thinking that Massasoit was dead, they went instead to Pocasset, where they sought Corbitant who, they were sure, would succeed Massasoit as the next Great Sachem. Winslow describes their arrival, where the Indians had gathered so closely that it took some effort to get through the crowd to the Great Sachem. Since the Pow-wow's medicine had not produced any results, Winslow asked permission to try to help the ailing Sachem.
Their second Thanksgiving was combined with the wedding celebration of Governor Bradford and Alice Southworth. Because of Massasoit's honored position, more was recorded of him than of other Indians of his time.
Massasoit most likely became Sachem of the Pokanokets, and Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, between 1605-1615. The second son of Massasoit was Pometacomet, (alias Pometacom, Metacom, Metacomet, Metacomo or Philip.) Philip was born in 1640, at least 16 years younger than Alexander.
The third son, Sunconewhew, was sent by his Father to learn the white man's ways and to attend school at Harvard. When his two oldest sons were old enough to marry, Massasoit made the arrangements for them to marry the two daughters of the highly regarded Corbitant, Sachem of the Pocasset tribe. The tribes of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, as well as some of the Nipmuck tribes of central Massachusetts, looked to him for Military defense and leadership. Following the plagues of 1617, which reduced his nation so drastically and left his greatest enemy, the Narragansetts of Rhode Island, so unaffected, Massasoit was in a weakened position. In 1632, following a battle with the Narragansetts in which he regained the Island of Aquidneck, Massasoit changed his name to Ousamequin (Yellow feather) sometimes spelled Wassamegon, Oosamequen, Ussamequen.
In 1637, the English waged an unprovoked war of extermination against the Pequot Federation of Connecticut, which shocked both the Wampanoags and the Narragansetts so much that both Nations wanted to avoid hostilities with the feared English.
After hearing of the death of his good friend, Edward Winslow in 1655, Massasoit realized that his generation was passing away. As Massasoit's health began to decline, he turned more and more of the responsibilities over to Alexander who was a very capable leader and who was already leading the warriors on expedition against some of their enemies. Massasoit was succeeded, as Great Sachem, by his son Alexander, assisted by his brother, Philip. The younger generation saw, in Alexander, a strong, new leader who could see the danger of catering to the English.
Both Philip and Weetamoo were very vocal in their condemnation of the English and word of their accusations soon reached Plymouth. Together, Philip and Canonchet reasoned that it would take a great deal of preparation for such a war.
Remembered as the author of Little Women, Louisa May Alcott's first major literary success was her memoir Hospital Sketches.
Clara Barton's foresight, courage, and perseverance brought the Red Cross to the United States after the Civil War.
Born in 1793, John Burns had already fought in the war of 1812 and later volunteered for the Mexican-American War. Mary Todd Lincoln's primary rival as Washington's Top Social Hostess was the daughter of the Secretary of the Treasury - twentyish Kate Chase. Throughout the Civil War there was at least one photographer taking pictures in the South - Samuel Abbot Cooley. Rose O'Neale Greenhow - leader of Washington Society, passionate secessionist and renowned Confederate spy.
Most remembered for one performance, on one night, Laura Keene was the first successful female theater manager with any real power. The inauguration of the president has always been a dramatic and colorful affair, and this was certainly the case in March of 1865. Born in April of 1853, “Tad” Lincoln had just turned eight the week before the war started. While today when we contemplate observation balloons during the Civil War we think of Professor Lowe, he had did have competition.
Professor Thaddeus Sobieski Coulincourt Lowe was born in New Hampshire in 1832 and by his late 20’s was well known for his expertise in chemistry, meteorology, and aeronautics. Today we think of the Secret Service as the protector of the President (and our national currency). Major Rathbone was the last surviving witness, that was seated in the President’s Box at Ford’s Theatre, during the Lincoln Assassination. It may seem odd today but artist’s drawings were still highly important records during the Civil War. Although the original inscription for this card is "Young girl at Aiken house", a close examination reveals that she has a ring on her wedding finger. Had he succeeded, Atzerodt would have been known as the assassin of Vice President Johnson.
John Wilkes Booth, at the start of the war, was just a few months shy of his 23rd birthday. Are you an entrepreneur who wants to change the world, but struggles with how to do well and also do good?
This is fascinating conversationA ended up being so far-ranging, we had to make it two episodes. The Gravity of Government There is one subject more important than any other earthly subject. Government can only accomplish its goals with one tool: cooperation by theA threat of violence.
Here is one thing we to need take away from this: Governments are about control, and achieving that control by threatening violence. But, this also means we all live under an entity that can legally use violence to get us to do what it wants.
When we cast our vote, we are deciding which laws and principles we want to force on those around us. Instead, we choose to go out and spend time with people and occasionally, someone offends us.
Forgiveness is coming to our senses and realizing that we are the ones perpetuating our discomfort.

PAINTING OF THE WEEK - Ruins of the Holyrood Chapel by Moonlight, oil on canvas, 1824, Louis Daguerre. G+ #Read of the Day: The Daguerreotype - The daguerreotype, an early form of photograph, was invented by Louis Daguerre in the early 19th c.
The first photograph (1826) - Joseph Niepce, a French inventor and pioneer in photography, is generally credited with producing the first photograph.
Easy Peasy Fact:Following Niepcea€™s experiments, in 1829 Louis Daguerre stepped up to make some improvements on a novel idea. This book called The Secret Life of Henry Ford lays out in plain English the affairs and controversy Ford dealt with.
The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker's dam is the history we make today. At first I was very skeptical of this record as it was a family tradition passed down for many generations.

She was very fond of her Grandmother, Freelove, knew all about her and stated on several occasions that Freelove's Mother was Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, Sachem of Choosetown, and not Tabitha Rubbards (Roberts). Massasoit was the Sachem of this tribe, as well as being the Great Sachem over the entire Wampanoag Federation, which consisted of over 30 tribes in central and southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Welcome, Englishmen!" It was a cold and windy day, yet this Indian, who introduced himself as Samoset, Sachem of a tribe in Monhegan Island, Maine, wore only moccasins and a fringed loin skin. What began as letters home describing her experiences as a volunteer nurse caring for soldiers wounded during the Civil War, Alcott reworked into a serial for a weekly paper. The death of the popular congressman, during the Battle of the Ball's Bluff, had political ramifications that reverberated throughout the Civil War.News of Baker's death swiftly crossed the nation. This fun loving redhead was not someone you would think of as a spy, but that is what made her effective. By the time the Civil War started in 1861 he was already 68, but once again quickly volunteered. Chase and her father, Salmon, both believed they should be living in the White House and Mary Lincoln knew it. As luck would have it, Cooley was living in Beaufort, South Carolina when it was captured by the Union during the Battle of Port Royal in November of 1861. Born in New Orleans in 1833 she had been working regionally as an actress, beginning in the New York area. Even in appearance Greeley sparked comment; he wore a full length coat on even the hottest days and always carried a bright umbrella. Her secret messages to General Beauregard was the basis of his victory at the 1st Battle of Bull Run.
Born in England, in 1826, she was married at 18 and had two children before her husband left her when she was 25.
The war was coming to a close and Mary Lincoln could see that the presidents time would move to peace. Tad’s given name was Thomas, in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s father, who had died two years before he was born.
John Wise, John LaMountain, and brothers Ezra Allen and James Allen all competed with Lowe for the position of Chief Aeronaut. At the age of 18 he attended a chemistry lecture given by Professor Reginald Dinkelhoff regarding lighter than air gasses. However, its predecessor did not have duties in these areas but was primarily an intelligence service.
Most of his early life had been devoted to theory of crop rotation and editing the “Farmers Register”. When she was nine, her father purchased 287 acres of land that became known as Surrattsville (now Clinton). While photography had existed since the late 1830’s, it was not possible to print the images directly in a newspaper or magazine. As one of the early conspirators, he was involved in the original plot to kidnap President Lincoln.

Often we have no idea how anxious and uptight we’ve become until we leave the fast lane. Talbot was active from the mid-1830s, and sits alongside Louis Daguerre as one of the fathers of the medium. Niepcea€™s photograph shows a view from the Window at Le Gras, and it only took eight hours of exposure time!The history of photography has roots in remote antiquity with the discovery of the principle of the camera obscura and the observation that some substances are visibly altered by exposure to light. Again employing the use of solvents and metal plates as a canvas, Daguerre utilized a combination of silver and iodine to make a surface more sensitive to light, thereby taking less time to develop. She obtained her copy of Zerviah Newcomb's Chronical from Zerviah's original diary, in the hands of Josiah 3rd himself.
The serial was quickly reprinted in newspapers across the North and soon turned into a book.
Just a few months after the start of the war her town of Martinsburg, Virginia (now West Virginia) was already in Union hands. Edwin Booth was five years older than John Wilkes and had been appearing on stage since 1849 (John Wilkes did not become appear on stage till 1855). During the upheaval of the Civil War, it seems odd that ordinary life was able to continue. When it was discovered, the lessons were stopped, but he had learned enough that he was able to continue teaching himself. As the founder & editor of the most influential US newspaper from the 1840's to the 1870s, the New York Tribune, he was involved in almost every political and social issue of his era, ranging from election reform to spiritualism and phrenology. Nicknamed "Tad" due to his tendency to wriggle and his large head in comparison to his body, the nickname stuck the rest of his life. All of them had ballooning experience prior to the war and it was not entirely clear who should be appointed to the position. When the call was made for a volunteer from the audience, Lowe immediately leapt to the stage. At the same time, he was fiercely opposed to the abolitionists and even proposed secession years before the start of the war.
By the time of the assassination he had dropped out of the conspiracy and was not directly involved. If thata€™s you, this means you can have more joy, experience more passion, and achieve prosperity with purpose. But wait a€“ therea€™s morea€¦ This is fascinating conversationA ended up being so far-ranging, we had to make it two episodes. Ia€™m talking about the root of all government power on the earth, democratic included: controlling people by threat of violence. Right or wrong, good or bad, governments operate via cooperation by theA threat of violence. Of course, I could stay home and sit on the couch and avoid the possibility of getting a pebble in my boot, but then Ia€™d miss out on so much enjoyment in life! And before I know it, this tiny particle of rock or twig is causing me to walk with a limp. We didna€™t mingle with others expecting to be offended, but in the context of relationships, such offenses are inevitable.

So when you let them speak first, they pounce on the opportunity and abuse your willingness to listen. But he was also referring toA his days of idleness that were the wellspring of his creative thought. In the most tumultuous threeA years of his life, He often took the time to retreat into nature alone.A As I follow Him, I want to learn from Him in this practice as well. Porta (1541-1615), a wise Neapolitan, was able to get the image of well-lighted objects through a small hole in one of the faces of a dark chamber; with a convergent lens over the enlarged hole, he noticed that the images got even clearer and sharper. Though he is most famous for his contributions to photography, he was also an accomplished painter and a developer of the diorama theatre.
As far as is known, nobody thought of bringing these two phenomena together to capture camera images in permanent form until around 1800, when Thomas Wedgwood made the first reliably documented although unsuccessful attempt. It gives insight to Henry Ford's life from an outside body, someone who saw his mistakes, saw his brilliant ideas, and saw the man behind the curtain. Her work was among the first to bring attention to the condition of the military hospitals and filled a need for a public hungry for news about its "boys".Empathy for the wounded may have also made Hospital Sketches so popular. Reverend Thomas Starr King was present as one of the first messages received in the newly installed telegraph office told of Baker's demise.
In the case of freckles, he would rub the area until it reddened so the camera would not record them.
A sad and empty Burns was sent home to quietly sit out the war in Gettysburg, until the war came to him. Rivalries occurred, social events took place, politicians and even generals, who you would think would be busy fighting a war, stabbed each other in the back.Determined women were only able to accomplish goals through the men in their lives.
While touring in Kentucky in 1862 (which was in Union Hands) she was offered $300 to toast Jefferson Davis, realizing that this might be her chance to become a spy she approached the Provost Marshall, Colonel Moore about this idea. The slave owners, realizing that if slaves could read, that they could begin to understand the struggle against slavery and the abolitionists that opposed it.
On August 19, 1862, Horace Greeley, wrote an open letter to Lincoln to free the slaves to weaken the Confederacy.
Hoping to be able to enjoy the celebration with him, she ordered pearls and diamonds to compliment her outfit. Dinkelhoff offered to mentor Lowe and for the next two years apprenticed with the Professor.
His agency was the first to introduce the use of detailed descriptions and photographs of criminals.
He attended John Brown’s execution in 1859 and even purchased a number of the pikes that Brown had planned to use to arm slaves that joined him. The Surratt’s home became the destination for those wanting to discuss current politics of the day. This over use of the negatives resulted in much of the damage that we see today on these images.
While the relationship is not known, we do see here a young woman that has seen several years of war. With relationships we could also decide to stay home and sit on the couch to avoid the possibility of being hurt, but wea€™d miss out on a great deal of enjoyment in life. Instead you ought to say, a€?If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.a€? But now you boast in your arrogance.

Schulze mixes chalk, nitric acid, and silver in a flask; notices darkening on side of flask exposed to sunlight. A daguerreotype, produced on a silver-plated copper sheet, produces a mirror image photograph of the exposed scene.
This book eludes like it talks about Ford but it usually has stories that John (the son) lives and how he viewed Henry. John even says when Henry was in his 70's he "still would run up and down stairs to prove he was still in it" (Dahlinger 167).
Bearce's Great-aunt, Mary Caroline, lived with Josiah III and Freelove Canfield Bearce for several years, listened to their ancestral stories, and made her own personal copy of Zerviah's diary supplement. Lawrence to what is now known as Lake Champlain where his party killed several Mohawks in a show of European strength and musketry.
Alcott's father, Bronson, was part of the philosophical movement of transcendentalism, which believed people and nature were both inherently good and pure, and that both are corrupted by society and its institutions. The sorrow his death caused, along with Baker 's burial in San Francisco, brought the impact of a distant war home to California. Some still consider him the greatest American stage actor and note him in particular for his portrayal of Hamlet. If a person had sunken checks, Brady would put cotton in the cheeks to make them fuller and healthier looking. The next night while on stage she made a toast "Here's to Jeff Davis and the Southern Confederacy." With that she was promptly, dramatically and publicly fired from the theatre company. Douglass felt that being able to read would be important, later noting “knowledge is the pathway from slavery to freedom.” Douglass began teaching others to read during church services. The editorial called, "The Prayer of Twenty Millions", resulted in one of Abraham Lincoln's most famous letters. Johnston loaded his army onto trains, marking the first use of trains to rush troops to a battlefield during the Civil War, to support Beauregard.
It is reported that at the time of Lincolns' death, she owned nearly a full year of the president's salary just in jewels and gowns!
Hired by Lincoln to protect him while travelling to Washington for the inauguration, Pinkerton managed to help Lincoln escape an assassination attempt in Baltimore.
These pikes were then sent to each governor of slave holding states to remind them about the treachery of the North. As the war approached Gettysburg, Confederate General Jubal Early targeted the destruction of the Caledonia Ironworks, due to its owner Stevens, "vindictiveness towards the South". To get an image in the newspaper, the photograph would be engraved on a wooden block before it was transferred to a steel plate for printing. Aiken's Landing, near this house, was used extensively under a flag of truce for prisoner exchanges. He ran a carriage repair shop in Port Tobacco, Maryland and otherwise would not be remembered if it had not been for Booth. Forgiving others brings relief and refreshment to us and expresses Goda€™s grace and mercy to others. Anemic Advertising leaves victims penniless and discouraged, even destroying many businesses. This will provide “swipe filesa€? from which you can build your storehouseA of promotions.

The alchemist Fabricio, more or less at the same period of time, observed that silver chloride was darkened by the action of light. Chemistry student Robert Cornelius was so fascinated by the chemical process involved in Daguerrea€™s work that he sought to make some improvements himself. Henry would stop by randomly and give extravagant gifts to John and spoil his mother with a salary that was unheard of.
One of the surgeons with whom Alcott had worked, wrote to thank her for revealing to him the nobility of the soldiers’ character. In three years of fund raising, King was instrumentally in California collecting $1,233,978 for the Sanitary Commission out of the $4,924,049 that was contributed nationally.
He held the record for an actor performing that role, which was referred to as “the hundred nights Hamlet”, until it was broken 58 years later by John Barrymore. If a subject had protruding ears, Brady used a waxy substance to make them stick to the head.
Rathbone worked in a law partnership before joining the NY 12th Infantry as a Captain at the start of the War. The moment a messenger brought the news of the Confederates burning his Caledonia iron mill to the ground, Stevens joking inquired, "did they burn the debts too." Stevens rented his home in Gettysburg to the Widow Thompson after moving to Lancaster.
The area today is known as Varina and Aiken's landing has slipped into the pages of history. He was considered perhaps not as talented as his brothers, but was immensely popular due to his charm and good looks. And they’ll even send you photos of it so you can breathe easy that ita€™s on its way.
Talking first says: I know better than you, I am smarter than you, I should speak while you listen.
It was only two hundred years later that the physicist Charles made the first photographic impression, by projecting the outlines of one of his pupils on a white paper sheet impregnated with silver chloride. It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.The metal-based daguerreotype process soon had some competition from the paper-based calotype negative and salt print processes invented by Henry Fox Talbot.
And in 1839 Cornelius shot a self-portrait daguerrotype that some historians believe was the first modern photograph of a man ever produced. It is said that Henry Fords wife knew about the affair but looked the other way, but who knows?
This was 25% of the total amount raised, which is a remarkable feat for a state, that at the time, had a population about half that of New York City's.A long time family friend of the Lincolns, Baker spent the day before his death visiting the family at the White House.
She was residing in Washington before the Lincolns arrived and filled the social gap while the Lincolns were mourning the loss of their son Willie. With the war crippling the family business, Mary, Anna’s mother, struggled with the debts left by her husband.
Talking first sets the agenda: herea€™s what wea€™re going to do, and herea€™s how wea€™re going to do it. John does give insight throughout the book on how strong of an iron fist Ford kept his company.
I 100% agree with Johns thoughts and it was good to read a book that didn't just state facts about a man I can find on Wikipedia.

She was impossible for Mary Lincoln to ignore.Historian Doris Kearns writes, “Kate’s dynamic grace and intellect made her the most interesting woman in any gathering, as well as a critical force behind her father’s drive for the presidency. Keene continued her success with performances in California and Australia before returning east and leasing a theatre in New York in 1855. The Widow Thompson reported that Lee was a gentleman but was unable to say the same for the soldiers that were with him.
The photos were turned into lantern slides and projected in registration with the same color filters. I see the decision by Henry to have an affair was not in the right mind but he did, in his own way, fix it.
For the rest of her life, she suffered from the side effects from the mercury used to treat the disease - which caused pain, weakness and hallucinations. Lincoln sat on the ground leaning against a tree; Colonel Baker was lying prone on the ground his head supported by his clasped hands.
After several failed attempts to escape, he boarded a train in Maryland on September 3, 1838, disguised as a sailor. It could be argued that Stevens, father of the Pennsylvania public school system, is currently remembered as portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. If I let you talk first, Ia€™m giving up control over the situation, and who knows where that will lead me? In 1802, Wedgwood reproduced transparent drawings on a surface sensitized by silver nitrate and exposed to light. The photographer decided to pose Lincoln standing, with one hand on a book and the other at his side. She gradually made herself absolutely essential to him, helping with his correspondence, editing his speeches, discussing political strategy, entertaining his friends and colleagues. He was carrying papers that identified him as a free black seaman and was able to continue to New York. On the night of Lincoln’s assassination, he was attending “Aladdin or The Wonderful Lamp” at the Grover’s Theatre while his parent’s were at the Ford’s Theatre. Nicephore Niepce (1765-1833) had the idea of using as sensitive material the bitumen, which is altered and made insoluble by light, thus keeping the images obtained unaltered.
Long before the first photographs were made, Chinese philosopher Mo Ti and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE.
Willie wrote a poem, "On the Death of Colonel Edward Baker", which was published in the Washington D.
By the time he was 22, Brady had his own studio in New York and began to exhibit his photographs.
While other girls her age focused on the social calendar of balls and soirees, she concentrated all her energies on furthering her father’s political career.”On November 12, 1863, Kate Chase married William Sprague IV, the wealthy "boy governor" of Rhode Island.
The residence was favored by Southern Supreme Court Justices, power brokers and Congressmen, including John C. When news was heard of the shooting, Tad was returned to the White House, where he learned the news from a staff member. Arriving in South Carolina, he was given the honor of firing the first shot on Fort Sumter.
Stevens was born with a club foot and later lost his hair due to a disease, resulting in the wearing of ill-fitting wigs. He communicated his experiences to Daguerre (1787-1851) who noticed that a iodide-covered silver plate - thedaguerreotype -, by exposition to iodine fumes, was impressed by the action of light action, and that the almost invisible alteration could be developed with the exposition to mercury fumes.
In the 6th century CE, Byzantine mathematician Anthemius of Tralles used a type of camera obscura in his experimentsIbn al-Haytham (Alhazen) (965 in Basra a€“ c.
He further told them that Massasoit, the Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, was at Nemasket (a distance of about 15 miles) with many of his Counselors. By the start of the Civil War, Brady was well known for photographing many Americans, including Lincoln.
Cooley was taking pictures as the 70th OH Infantry and 55th IL Infantry removed Fort McAllister's cannons, artillery and ammunition in December of 1864. Stevens instructed his personal physician to send him the bill for any "deformed or disabled" boys he treated. It was then fixed with a solution of potassium cyanide, which dissolves the unaltered iodine.The daguerreotype (1839) was the first practical solution for the problem of photography. His wife even wanted a house in Georgia but a swamp stood in the way, needless to say house was built and swamp is no more. Greenhow considered Calhoun a second father and became an astute political strategist due to his tutelage. During much of the war he put his farming skills to use, teaching Southern farmers how to rotate crops and extend their yields. In 1841, Claudet discovered quickening substances, thanks to which exposing times were shortened. Henry was a family man, and even though he did have John with another women, all it did was solidify his reign of power over the auto industry. During Lincoln's second Inaugural Address, he echoed the sentiments Willie expressed in the poem by urging the nation, "to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan".In 1861, the Battle of Ball's Bluff was considered a significant fight.
The little committee thanked her cordially, left an armload of Red Cross literature, and said that they hoped she would give the matter her consideration and support.
She demonstrated her skill by encouraging her friend, James Buchanan, to run for President and formulated the strategy that enabled him to win the office.
He built a series of seven balloons and used them in 1862 to help McClellan during the Peninsula Campaign. His step-father, Senator Harris, became good friends with Lincoln, as well as William Seward. When a Louisiana senator proclaimed that slaves were "the gayest, happiest, the most contented, and the best-fed people in the world," Stevens rose on the House floor with a sarcastic proposal: "If this be so, let us give all a chance to enjoy this blessing. As he was studying in England, he found work painting backdrops for theatrical productions. More or less at the same time period, EnglishWilliam Henry Talbot substituted the steel daguerreotype with paper photographs (named calotype).
Wilhelm Homberg described how light darkened some chemicals (photochemical effect) in 1694. Lincoln dropped into an open space, helpless to save himself, when he was grabbed by the collar by Booth. Following the war her popularity declined and she moved west living in Arizona before settling in San Francisco where she remained a local celebrity occasionally mentioned in the paper.
Years later, Greenhow spent weeks nursing Calhoun on his deathbed at the Boarding House.Greenhow used her political connections not only to acquire information for the Confederacy, put to petition Secretary of State Seward for promotions for her son-in-law in the Union Army. After other invitees, including General Grant, declined the Lincolns' invitation to attend the theatre, Lincoln invited Senator Harris’s daughter and her fiance to attend.
Niepce of Saint-Victor (1805-1870), Nicephorea€™s cousin, invented the photographic glass plate covered with a layer of albumin, sensitized by silver iodide. The novel Giphantie (by the French Tiphaigne de la Roche, 1729a€“74) described what could be interpreted as photography.Around the year 1800, Thomas Wedgwood made the first known attempt to capture the image in a camera obscura by means of a light-sensitive substance.
However, the shock of Baker's death led Congress to establish the Congressional Joint Committee on the Conduct of the War. Instead of returning North after the War, an article in the June 4, 1866, edition of the Hartford Daily Courant noted that Cooley had been elected sheriff of Beaufort. When it became clear that Greenhow was a spy, the Union hoped to quietly arrest her and capture any possible conspirators who visited her home. It should be noted that it was Laura Keene herself that was the beneficiary, in that all proceeds from the performance were reserved for her. One day, as he was following a narrow path in Lancaster, he encountered one of his enemies, who was coming from the other direction and refused to give way. Pressured to sell the home to pay lawyer fees, both the boarding house and tavern were sold by 1869. Once in the states, he found work as an illustrator for Boston periodicals and for a few guide books of the day. A search of his room revealed a revolver and bowie knife (presumably for his assassination attempt). Many people in Maryland were outraged when Lincoln suspended habeas corpus (requiring a person to be charged with a crime to be held in prison) and subsequently imprisoned many local and state officials that opposed the Union.
Maddox and Benett, between 1871 and 1878, discovered the gelatine-bromide plate, as well as how to sensitize it. As a result, Union commanders second-guessed their decisions throughout the remainder of the War. He expressed his gratitude to him but it was not until months later that Edwin found out the identity of the person he had saved. Hiring some of the best photographers of the day such as Alexander Gardner, James Gardner, Timothy H.
The plan was foiled when "Little Rose" climbed a backyard tree to yell to the neighbors, "Mother has been arrested. With more than an hour to go he decided to connect the two balloons and transfer the hydrogen from the Constitution to the Intrepid. In addition, possessions of Booth's, including a bank book, helped to connect him to Lincoln’s death. She decided her next project would be bringing the Red Cross to America - a task easier said than done. Cooley sold bread and foodstuffs to various businesses as well as to the General Hospital and the Small Pox Hospital. Mother has been arrested." Under house arrest, Greenhow's home became a tourist attraction.
After a falling out with Wise, LaMountain took ownership of the balloon, “Atlantic”, which they had hoped to make the crossing. A chemist in the Surgeon General’s office, Tonry, by coincidence was working in Ford’s theatre, which had been converted to offices. Arrested a few days later, Atzerodt was tried and executed along with Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell (aka Payne) and David Herold. But Booth, along with many people in Maryland, as well as some judges on the Supreme Court, felt this action was unconstitutional. Barton had to change the prevailing political position that the Treaty of Geneva conflicted with the Monroe Doctrine, which prohibited international intervention in American affairs. To avoid the possibility of being recaptured as a slave, he spent two years touring England and Ireland. While raising a fuss over being under constant guard, Rose still managed to send information to the Confederates. About halfway through Act III the funniest line of the play was delivered: "Don't know the manners of good society, eh?
Four days later, perhaps as some sort of act of retribution, the War department fired Tonry.
During this trip British supporters raised the necessary money and officially purchased his freedom from his owner. Lincoln, himself, ordered her moved to her former home, Hill's Boarding House, which had been turned into the Old Capitol Prison.On arrival, eight year old "Little Rose" told the prison superintendent, "You have one of the hardest little rebels her you ever saw. After losing the position of Chief Aeronaut, he managed to get General Butler to allow him to provide observations at Fortress Monroe in Virginia, where he made the first recorded aerial observation of enemy troops.
After his return to the United States, he continued writing on slavery and even expanded to women’s rights. But if you get along with me as well as Lieutenant Sheldon (commander of the Greenhow house guard), you will have no trouble."After months imprisoned, Greenhow was exiled to the Confederate States. After he escaped, Keene made her way to Lincoln’s side and held his head in her lap till he was taken across the street. Despite this achievement, he was reassigned to the Union Army Balloon Corps under Professor Lowe when Butler was relieved of command.
As with the bitumen process, the result appeared as a positive when it was suitably lit and viewed. For this reason, even to this day, many think that he personally took most of the photographs.
In Richmond, Jefferson Davis asked Greenhow to travel to Europe to woo the elite to recognize the Confederacy. Following the assassination, she continued her career until she had a hemorrhage while on stage in 1873.
There, Greenhow published her memoir, My imprisonment and the First Year of Abolition Rule at Washington, which became a best seller. She survived for a few more months but never recovered and died a few months later at the age of 47.
She was granted an audience with Napoleon III and met with highest British and French government officials.
A week later, he recorded his final Civil War scene when he sketched the Lincoln Box at Ford’s Theatre. Booth attended the 2nd inauguration and reported that he had an excellent chance to kill the President if he had wished. A strong hot solution of common salt served to stabilize or fix the image by removing the remaining silver iodide.
Captured and released a 3rd time she managed to sail to England in 1864 where she met and married a Union Naval officer. He expected the government would eventually purchase the images to document the war but there was no interest. After a year abroad, Greenhow boarded the Condor, a British blockade runner to return home. Following the war, he remained with Harper’s producing much of his postwar work during reconstruction. Originally, Booth planned to kidnap Lincoln and use him as exchange for Confederate prisoners being held in the North. On 7 January 1839, this first complete practical photographic process was announced at a meeting of the French Academy of Sciences, and the news quickly spread. Some speculate that he was never able to fully accept that there was nothing he could have done to prevent Lincoln’s assassination. He felt that this act would result in the North bringing the war to an end and recognizing the Confederacy. At first, all details of the process were withheld and specimens were shown only at Daguerre's studio, under his close supervision, to Academy members and other distinguished guests. Belle became an actress in England and returned to the United States where she married again in 1869.
During this time he was appointed charge d'affaires to the Dominican Republic for two years. On March 17th, 1865 he heard of Lincoln’s intention to attend a play near the Soldiers Home.
His eyesight, which had been deteriorating since the 1850’s, further complicated his ability to make a living.
In 1872, he became the first African-American nominated for Vice President on the Equal Rights Party ticket.
In 1893 he built an electric railroad to the top of Echo Mountain where he owned an 80 room hotel. While sketching in Georgia, he suffered a fatal heart attack and is buried in Marietta, just north of Atlanta. During the 1888 campaign he even received a vote for President at the Republican National Convention.
His granddaughter, “Pancho” Lowe Barnes, was an aviator in her own right and was featured as a character in the movie “The Right Stuff” as the owner of the “Happy Bottom Riding Club”.
Rathbone was found by police bleeding and claiming that people were hiding in the walls behind the pictures. Fourteen years later in 1900, she was to address a Union veterans group in Wisconsin when she had a heart attack and died.
Paper with a coating of silver iodide was exposed in the camera and developed into a translucent negative image. Unlike a daguerreotype, which could only be copied by rephotographing it with a camera, a calotype negative could be used to make a large number of positive prints by simple contact printing.
The calotype had yet another distinction compared to other early photographic processes, in that the finished product lacked fine clarity due to its translucent paper negative.
This was seen as a positive attribute for portraits because it softened the appearance of the human face.
Talbot patented this process,[20] which greatly limited its adoption, and spent many years pressing lawsuits against alleged infringers.
He attempted to enforce a very broad interpretation of his patent, earning himself the ill will of photographers who were using the related glass-based processes later introduced by other inventors, but he was eventually defeated. Nonetheless, Talbot's developed-out silver halide negative process is the basic technology used by chemical film cameras today.
Hippolyte Bayard had also developed a method of photography but delayed announcing it, and so was not recognized as its inventor.In 1839, John Herschel made the first glass negative, but his process was difficult to reproduce. The new formula was sold by the Platinotype Company in London as Sulpho-Pyrogallol Developer.Nineteenth-century experimentation with photographic processes frequently became proprietary. This adaptation influenced the design of cameras for decades and is still found in use today in some professional cameras. Petersburg, Russia studio Levitsky would first propose the idea to artificially light subjects in a studio setting using electric lighting along with daylight. In 1884 George Eastman, of Rochester, New York, developed dry gel on paper, or film, to replace the photographic plate so that a photographer no longer needed to carry boxes of plates and toxic chemicals around. Now anyone could take a photograph and leave the complex parts of the process to others, and photography became available for the mass-market in 1901 with the introduction of the Kodak Brownie.A practical means of color photography was sought from the very beginning.
Results were demonstrated by Edmond Becquerel as early as 1848, but exposures lasting for hours or days were required and the captured colors were so light-sensitive they would only bear very brief inspection in dim light.The first durable color photograph was a set of three black-and-white photographs taken through red, green and blue color filters and shown superimposed by using three projectors with similar filters.
It was taken by Thomas Sutton in 1861 for use in a lecture by the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, who had proposed the method in 1855.[27] The photographic emulsions then in use were insensitive to most of the spectrum, so the result was very imperfect and the demonstration was soon forgotten.
Maxwell's method is now most widely known through the early 20th century work of Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii. Included were methods for viewing a set of three color-filtered black-and-white photographs in color without having to project them, and for using them to make full-color prints on paper.[28]The first widely used method of color photography was the Autochrome plate, commercially introduced in 1907. If the individual filter elements were small enough, the three primary colors would blend together in the eye and produce the same additive color synthesis as the filtered projection of three separate photographs.
Autochrome plates had an integral mosaic filter layer composed of millions of dyed potato starch grains.
Reversal processing was used to develop each plate into a transparent positive that could be viewed directly or projected with an ordinary projector. The mosaic filter layer absorbed about 90 percent of the light passing through, so a long exposure was required and a bright projection or viewing light was desirable. Competing screen plate products soon appeared and film-based versions were eventually made.
A complex processing operation produced complementary cyan, magenta and yellow dye images in those layers, resulting in a subtractive color image. Kirsch at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a binary digital version of an existing technology, the wirephoto drum scanner, so that alphanumeric characters, diagrams, photographs and other graphics could be transferred into digital computer memory. The lab was working on the Picturephone and on the development of semiconductor bubble memory. The essence of the design was the ability to transfer charge along the surface of a semiconductor. Michael Tompsett from Bell Labs however, who discovered that the CCD could be used as an imaging sensor.
