Fierce. Lovely. “Stagecoach” Mary Fields (c. 1832-1914) was born a slave in Tennessee and following the Civil War, she moved to the pioneer community of Cascade, Montana. In 1895, when she was around 60 years old, Fields became the second woman and first African American carrier for the US Postal Service. At 200 pounds, she was said to be a match for any two men in Montana Territory. She had a standing bet that she could knock a man out with one punch. Link update has her full story.

Fields loved the job, despite the many dangers and difficulties such as wolves and thieves (she was an excellent marksman, defending her route with a revolver and a rifle).

Black History Month - #Stagecoach" Mary Fields
Women's History Post of the Day: Mary Fields was the first African American woman and the second American woman to be employed as a mail carrier with the United States Postal Service. Mary was hired by the U.S. Postal Service because she was able to hitch a team of six horses to a Stagecoach faster than anyone other applicant. She earned the nickname "Stagecoach Mary" because of her reliability even in inclement weather that caused her to walk up to ten miles
In 1775, the United States Postal Service was established and we’re highlighting Mary Fields (A.K.A. “Stagecoach Mary”). Fields was the first African-American woman mail carrier in the United States! She was the second American woman to work for USPS. Born a slave in Tennessee, Fields migrated west shortly after the Civil War. She was hired as a mail carrier in Montana in 1895. | nwhm.org | National Women's History Museum | #WomensHistory #MaryFields #BlackHistory #BlackWomen
The remains of what may be King Richard III, showing a curved spine and signs of battle trauma.

I found this article interesting because it reveals the plans for the reburial of King Richard III, whose body was discovered in a parking lot in England last year. I found it interesting that his remains were lost for so long, and now that we’ve found him, we are giving him a proper burial this time. This is important to history because not only are we giving Richard III a proper resting place, but we can also learn more about him during his life due to modern technology. -CJ Machan
WHITE ROSE-- The mortal remains of King Richard III. This photograph was taken at the site of Grey Friars in Leicester. His hands were found to have been tied and later it was found that he had ten wounds to his body, two of which would have killed him. The others were known as humilation wounds inflicted by followers of Henry Tudor after death.
The remains of King Richard III, showing a curved spine and signs of battle trauma. Archaeologists announced today (Feb. 4 2013) that bones excavated from underneath a parking lot in Leicester, "beyond reasonable doubt," belong to the medieval king. The skeleton showed signs of the spinal disorder scoliosis, which Richard III likely had, and because battle wounds on the bones matched accounts of Richard III's death in the War of the Roses.

"Woman in sensible armor! A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class." Girl Power!!-
Rare photo of a female samurai. Women were always powerful. In Samurai life, everyone was trained in warfare. / another caption for this photo: Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan
A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha. An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional "housewife" role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha.
