    Conrad Heyer / By being born in 1749, he be the earliest born human ever photographed. In some small way, this picture is a real connection with that long ago era. What was the world like during Conrad’s youth? The USA wasn’t even an idea yet, the colonies were just that, colonies. You wanted to get around? Walking, horse, or sailing ship was it.

Juana Galán was known for beating Napoleon’s troops out of her village during the Battle of Valdepeñas in June, 1808. There weren’t enough men to defend the village from invading French. Juana, 21, immediately rallied all of the women in the village. When the French troops marched in, the women dumped boiling oil on top of them. Juana stood in the street with a large club and beat seven shades of shit out of any French soldier that crossed her path. The French never returned.
