8. Issue 39 Big Hole National Battlefield
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 5.59Mb)

Description:
Big Hole National Battlefield is a memorial to the people who fought and died here on August 9 and 10, 1877.

In 1877, about 750 non-treaty Nez Perce fled Idaho in the face of demands from the US Army that all Nez Perce move onto a reservation a fraction from the size of their traditional homeland. The Army was enforcing a national policy of placing all American Indians on reservations to make way for the westward expansion of the young United States.

In early August, the non-treaty Nez Perce camped for several days along the North Fork of the Big Hole River. They knew they had crossed into Montana Territory, and believed they were safe from further pursuit. Just before daybreak on August 9, 1877, military forces attacked them as they rested after six weeks of conflict and flight.

Although the soldiers and civilian volunteers attacked the village while most of the Nez Perce slept, the warriors quickly mounted a resistance and drove the military men to retreat to a wooded hill nearby. The soldiers dug trenches for protection, but the Nez Perce warriors surrounded the fortified hill and held the soldiers there. Meanwhile, the older men, women and children in the camp buried the dead and fled again.

The Battle of the Big Hole lasted less than 36 hours, yet casualties were high. Between 60 and 90 Nez Perce were killed, most in the initial attack on the sleeping camp, with countless wounded in the ensuing battle. Twenty-two soldiers, and 5 civilians were killed, and many more were severely wounded.

11. Issue 36 Las Vegas
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 10.62Mb)

Description:

While it may be disheartening to think that there`s no way you could even sit in the same theater where the rat pack once performed, there`s one group trying to preserve a bit of Las Vegas history. And if you`ve been to Fremont Street, you`ve probably seen their work, which includes the 1966 lamp from the Aladdin and the 1967 Hacienda horse and rider.

The Neon Museum is a non-profit group that has been collecting neon signs from all over Las Vegas and through generous donations they have been able to restore some of these mid-century wonders and install them in the downtown area as public arts displays. They are raising money to create an exhibit space from the lobby of the old La Concha hotel, which they hope to move from its current site to their land just north of downtown.

Description:

This week we're speaking with Andrea Bornemeier, who is the Chief of Interpretation at Pipe Spring National Monument in Arizona. Pipe Spring National Monument preserves a slice of the old west. Native Americans had been using the waters at Pipe Spring for a thousand years before the Mormon settlement arrived. Later, it acted as a way station for people traveling across the Arizona Strip, the part of Arizona separated from the rest of the state by the Grand Canyon. Eventually, it became a private ranch, and today is surrounded by Native American lands, and hosts a visitor center and museum dedicated to them.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 5.31Mb)

Description:
This week we are speaking with Dean Alexander from Hopewell Culture National Historic Park in Ohio. The park contains nationally significant archeological resources including large earthwork and mound complexes that provide an insight into the social, ceremonial, political, and economic life of the Hopewell people, a number of different Native American groups which inhabited a large portion of eastern North America. The most striking Hopewell sites contain earthworks in the form of squares, circles, and other geometric shapes.

Many of these sites were built to a monumental scale, with earthen walls up to 12 feet high outlining geometric figures more than 1000 feet across. Conical and loaf-shaped earthen mounds up to 30 feet high are often found in association with the geometric earthworks.

Description:
Special Announcement: You could win a free GPS system just by sending us your photo! Check out http://www.eTravelogue.com for more information!

The history of land and vegetation use in the vicinity of Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site begins with the Native American occupation. This occurred about 10,000 years ago when big game hunting and berry/nut gathering people traversed the area. For nearly a millennium this area was a trading hub established by the earthlodged Hidatsa and Mandan tribes with the primary commodity being Knife River flint. In addition, it is important as a place where Indian culture and agriculture developed. It should be noted that there were more people living along the Knife and Missouri Rivers in the 18th and early 19th Century than there are today. After the small-pox epidemic in 1837, the Hidatsa and Mandan tribes abandoned their villages here and moved approximately 60 miles up river to establish Like-a-Fishhook village.

During the second half of the 19th Century steamboats frequented the area and created "wood yards" on the Missouri River bottomlands. Their purpose and function were to cut and store wood to be used as fuel for the steamboats. The largest of these "wood yards" occurred at the mouth of the Knife River in what is now Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site and present day Stanton.

It was originally believed that the park contained village sites that were hundreds of years old. The full significance and role of the park's cultural sites in our history is only beginning to be understood. Through archaeological studies we have found some sites that are not hundreds of years old but thousands of years old. The historical, archeological, and biological value of Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site is far greater than was first envisioned. It is one of the few units of the National Park System in which an intensive, parkwide archeological survey has been completed. The surveys conducted from 1976 through 1980 resulted in the identification and evaluation of all the archeological sites within the park.

Description:
Special Announcement: You could win a free GPS system just by sending us your photo! Check out http://www.eTravelogue.com for more information!

Once, thriving American Indian trade communities of Tiwa and Tompiro speaking Puebloans inhabited this remote frontier area of central New Mexico. Early in the 17th-century Spanish Franciscans found the area ripe for their missionary efforts. However, by the late 1670s the entire Salinas District, as the Spanish had named it, was depopulated of both Indian and Spaniard.

What remains today are austere yet beautiful reminders of this earliest contact between Pueblo Indians and Spanish Colonials: the ruins of four mission churches, at Quarai, Ab, and Gran Quivira and the partially excavated pueblo of Las Humanas or, as it is known today, Gran Quivira. Established in 1980 through the combination of two New Mexico State Monuments and the former Gran Quivira National Monument, the present Monument comprises a total of 1,100 acres.

Through the invention of powered flight, Wilbur and Orville made significant contributions to human history. In their Dayton, Ohio, bicycle shop these two men, self-trained in the science and art of aviation, researched and built the world's first power-driven, heavier-than-air machine capable of free, controlled, and sustained flight. The Wrights perfected their invention during 1904 and 1905 in their hometown of Dayton.

The park also preserves the legacy of Paul Laurence Dunbar, who with his compelling new voice was the first African American writer to win high distinction in American literature. His body of work that included novels, plays, short stories, lyrics, and over 400 published poems reflecting much of the African American experience in America, and contributed to a growing social consciousness and cultural identity for African Americans in the United States.

Dayton Aviation Heritage commemorates the lives and legacies of these three men and the history of aviation.

18. Issue 25 Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 6.26Mb)

Description:
On the night of July 17, 1944, residents in the San Francisco area were awakened a massive explosion that lit up the sky. At Port Chicago Naval Magazine 40 miles east of San Francisco, 320 men were instantly killed when the munitions ships they were loading mysteriously blew up. It was the largest homeland disaster during World War II. Everyone within 1,000 feet of the loading dock perished

The memorial preserves the site of the accident, and the incident plays an important role in American history, as it eventually lead to a mutiny court martial and was a catalyst in the desegregation of the US armed forces.

The memorial is on an active military base, so reservations and security checks are required you to visit. More on that during the interview.

20. Issue 23 Chiricahua National Monument
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 4.49Mb)

Description:
Twenty seven million years ago a volcanic eruption of immense proportions shook the land around Chiricahua National Monument. One thousand times greater than the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, the Turkey Creek Caldera eruption eventually laid down two thousand feet of highly silicious ash and pumice. This mixture fused into a rock called rhyolitic tuff and eventually eroded into the spires and unusual rock formations of today.

The monument is a mecca for hikers and birders. At the intersection of the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts, and the southern Rocky Mountains and northern Sierra Madre in Mexico, Chiricahua plants and animals represent one of the premier areas for biological diversity in the northern hemisphere.

Of historic interest is the Faraway Ranch, a pioneer homestead and later a working cattle and guest ranch. It is a significant example of human transformation of the western frontier from wilderness to the present settlement. Faraway Ranch offers glimpses into the lives of Swedish immigrants Neil and Emma Erickson, and their children. The house is furnished with historic artifacts which not only give us reminders of our youth and our ancestors, but one can also trace the development of technology during the first half of the twentieth century.

24. Issue 19 Booker T. Washington National Historic Site
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 4.54Mb)

Description:
From the National Parks website:

"On April 5, 1856, a child who later called himself Booker T. Washington, was born in slavery on this 207-acre tobacco farm.

The realities of life as a slave in piedmont Virginia, the quest by African Americans for education and equality, and the post-war struggle over political participation all shaped the options and choices of Booker T. Washington.

Washington founded Tuskegee Institute in Alabama in 1881 and later became an important and controversial leader of his race at a time when increasing racism in the United States made it necessary for African Americans to adjust themselves to a new era of legalized oppression. Visitors are invited to step back in time and experience firsthand the life and landscape of people who lived in an era when slavery was part of the fabric of American life."
