Love to know why they sit of these kinds of things for decades! Can it be that some of the HISTORY books used for educational purposes would have to be rewritten? Laugh

Anyway I'd love to know WHAT ELSE they feel the need to keep from the viewing public?

How the West was really won: Early settlers seen on the coach to Deadwood, panning for gold and having pow-wows with natives in newly released 19th century photographs

Modern travel: The photograph taken by John C.H Grabill in the 1880s was titled 'The Deadwood Coach' and shows formally dressed passengers both on top and inside

Pretty good quality for the era.

The last man standing at Custer's massacre was a Horse.

Anyway the rest of the photos can be seen at the link below---I post them here ( VIA THE LINK )for educational purposes only---ENJOY.

Super photos of a great time in history---kudos to the photog for having the presence of mind to have them protected for future viewing---long overdue! :clap:

Maybe this would make a good forum, 1800's government conspiracy.

Nice pictures Cole. But, where are the deep dark secrets that have been sat on for decades? All of this is old news. I didn't see one thing on that website that I didn't already know about.

Just that the Indians were supposed to be Evil blood thirsty killers of women and children---you know, the ones who had to have their land stolen as a result, had to be shipped off on foot to Reservations, well some got lucky and had use of a cattle car or three. 😉

No deep dark secrets to it--just more sensationalism in order to carry out an agenda--something these rulers are highly skilled at in fact they've perfected it.

It doesn't take an in depth study of the old west to understand that the "Indian wars" were mostly one sided. Most of the army's battles were fought against people who were not interested in fighting. Many of the "Indian" raids on white settlers were done by white criminals that left native artifacts behind to throw the law off the track.

I wouldn't say that our government has perfected this technique of agenda achievement. It worked in the 19th century because no one was looking for it then. At that time it was current events, now it is history. When our government tries this same tactic now, everyone jumps all over it. We have learned from our past, that we can't trust our government. They used to get away with a lot more, now, our country is full of watchdogs.

those pics are friggen cool

Back when I lived out in California..I saw just how harsh the desert was..and how the land is so hilly and mountainous..to get through must have been rough..those early wagon trains and such..the Pioneers..they were made of stuff I'm pretty sure I don't have in me. California is very proud of it's Pioneer past, FYI)

I lived inland near Temecula..the town still has old buildings from way back..lots of old pictures all around town..restaurants and such..much like the ones in that article.

There's old mine sup in the local mountains..Julian comes to mind

It's sad seeing the NA's in thos epics..knowing how many got slaughtered, their kids taken off to those school back then to be "civilized".

I forget the tribe that use to live near Temecula..near the river(creek) there..but I remember readign they were slaughtered..
The land must be so haunted

That would have been the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians that lived in the Temecula valley. There were more than three hundred tribes that lived in California before the white man came. The "pioneers" of California might have been proud of their accomplishments but, they really didn't have a lot to be proud of. Most of the tribes that lived in California were what were called "diggers". They hunted some game but, most of their food was from gathered roots and plants. They were peaceful and rarely bothered anyone. The "pioneers" hunted them for sport, killing them for no reason. The earliest pioneers would not have survived without the help of the native people all over this country. What better way to repay them than extermination?

Slaughter them, enslave, or tax the shite out of them.
That's pretty much how the 'modern world' treated/s indigenous people's.
Conquer!!!
It's the Roman way.
Now days''it's more subtle, propoganda..bait and switch..misdirection.
But the more things change, the more they stay the same.
same goal in mind
Conquer!!!

*please note:
I'm not so much judging it, more observing it.
It's a dog eat dog world, after all..even if it doesn't have to be that way..there's enough for all..if all played fair..but that's not gonna happen..this reality, I think wa snot made for that..more to learn and prep forthat..for the next step..whatever that is

Yes indeed--and I'm getting a sneaking suspicion that this Earthquake has given them new life and a different mode of attack---Every--and I do mean EVERY---MSM outlet say's it's all doom and gloom--

God how I love that batshit krazy blond. :crazy: :wtf:

Just can't make this stuff up---

anyway the Indian thing has always been a touchy subject when it comes to me and how I feel about it from a personal point of view.

Damn cowards---and then to LIE ABOUT IT. Some Hero's those Blue Coats. 🙄
