Elizabethan- This is Queen Elizabeth I, who this era is named after. Her dress as very extravagant due to her being the Queen of England at that time, I like the intricate pattern and the turtle neck tudor neck thing.
Elizabeth I (1533 – 1603) was Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death. Often known as "The Virgin Queen", Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty and the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth remained unmarried and childless which preserved her power, and her 44 years on the throne provided welcome stability for the kingdom and helped forge a sense of national identity.

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson: The nearly concurrent deaths of two political giants on July 4, 1826, closed an extraordinary chapter in American history in an extraordinarily ironic way. At the end, the men's thoughts turned to one another and the survival of an experiment in governance.

Akhenaten, Egypt's "heretic" Pharaoh. He began a new monotheistic religion centered around the Aten, a non-anthropomorphic sun god. He also moved the capitol to Amarna, ushering in a period of unusual innovation in Egyptian art and culture. After Akhenaten died, the religion collapsed, Amarna was abandoned, and the old Egyptian priesthood regained power. Subsequent archival records call Akhenaten "the enemy."
Akhenaten, Egypt's "heretic" Pharaoh. Always beautiful and serene.

Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt - Akhenaten Akhenaten Akhenaten is famous as the king who brought about a major change in Egyptian religion - which lasted only as long as he lived. He was the son of the great king Amenhotep III, and was himself born as Amenhotep IV. In the sixth year of his reign, however, he decided that the king of the gods, Amun, would be replaced by Aten. At the same time he changed his own name to Akhenaten - 'Servant of Aten'. Aten Aten was the name given to the disc of the sun (that is, the round shape of the sun). Akhenaten's trick was to make Aten the supreme god. Aten was shown as the sun with rays ending in hands, sometimes holding the ankh (the sign for life). Akhenaten proclaimed himself the Aten's only priest. The temples of Amun were closed, and Amun's name was chiselled out of temple walls. New temples to Aten were built in Thebes, and an entire new city was built for the Aten, known as Akhetaten - 'the Horizon of the Aten'. Akhetaten Akhetaten was Egypt's new capital. It was built next to the Nile about half way between Memphis and Thebes, with a great new temple for Aten and a palace for Akhenaten. It is now known as Amarna, and this period of Egyptian history is known as the Amarna period. Soon after Akhenaten's death, however, the city was abandoned. The Egyptians did not want to give up their gods. Amun was reinstated as king of the gods and eventually life went back to normal. There is evidence that even in Akhetaten, the common people worshipped the same gods as before. Nefertiti Akhenaten's wife was Nefertiti. A famous bust of her shows her beauty, her long neck and her blue crown (see right). She seems to have been a powerful figure, and is often shown in pictures with her husband. In one picture she is even shown grabbing the enemies of Egypt by the hair and smiting them - usually a pose reserved only for pharaohs. Amarna Art The art of this period is especially fine - very naturalistic and beautiful. Akhenaten himself was show with a very odd-shaped body (see the carving above). He has a narrow waist and wide hips, like a woman, and his face is very thin. Other people were also shown in this way, perhaps as a way of honouring the king. Scenes of nature are the most lovely forms of art of the Amarna Period. A wonderful example is shown right, of a kingfisher darting among papyrus plants surrounding a garden pool. Tutankhamun It is possible that Tutankhamun was Akhenaten's son. His mother was probably Kiya, another of Akhenaten's wives. He was born with the name Tutankhaten, which can be seen on his throne. A few years into his reign, however, the priests of Amun overthrew Aten and the boy king's name was changed to Tutankhamun.

Lost for 1,600 years, the royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.

William Harvey Carney was an African American soldier during the American Civil War who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle of Fort Wagner. Carney, once a slave, escaped through the underground railroad in Norfolk, VA.
Sgt. William Carney, Civil War Medal of Honor recipient. #civilwar
William Harvey Carney was the first African American to earn the Medal of Honor. During the Second Battle of Fort Wagner, on 18 July 1863, Carney caught the flag after his Colonel, Robert Gould Shaw, was shot. The official list of Medal of Honor recipients states that Carney grasped the flag before it hit the ground, “led the way to the parapet, and planted the colors thereon. When the troops fell back he brought off the flag, under a fierce fire in which he was twice severely wounded.” William Carney Before Carney made it to the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry in the Civil War, he was a slave in Virginia. He and his father fled from slavery through the Underground Railroad and then managed to save enough money to buy their still enslaved family. After the war, he lived the rest of his life as a postal worker and received the actual Medal of Honor in 1900, almost 40 years after the deed. ”Boys the Old Flag Never Touched the Ground” is a song written in remembrance of Carney a few years before his death in 1908.

United States Colored Troops - Wikipedia- at an abandoned farmhouse at Dutch Gap, in 1864 - During the American Civil War, Union troops tried to build a canal at Dutch Gap late in 1864. Among their workers were paid African-American laborers from the Roanoke Island Freedmen's Colony, who were pressed into service away from their base in North Carolina. By that time, some freedmen were serving in the United States Colored Troops, and they took part in the military action at Dutch Gap.

Buffalo Soldiers originally were members of the U.S. 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The nickname was given to the "Negro Cavalry" by the Native American tribes they fought; the term eventually became synonymous with all of the African-American regiments formed in 1866. "Buffalo Soldiers" were established by Congress as the first peacetime all-black regiments in the regular U.S. Army.

John Wilkes Booth
Lincoln Assassins, Presidents Abraham, Abraham Lincoln, U.S. Presidents, Civil War, Abed Lincoln, Wolf Booths, John Wolf, April 26
John Wilkes Booth (1838-1865) was a famous American stage actor who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre, in Washington DC on April 14, 1865. Booth was a member of the prominent 19th-century Booth theatrical family from Maryland and, by the 1860s, was a well-known actor. He was also a Confederate sympathizer, vehement in his denunciation of Lincoln, and was strongly opposed to the abolition of slavery in the United States || Booth and a group of co-conspirators originally plotted to kidnap Lincoln, but later planned to kill him, Vice President Andrew Johnson, and Secretary of State William H. Seward in a bid to help the Confederacy's cause. Although Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia had surrendered four days earlier, Booth believed the American Civil War was not yet over because Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston's army was still fighting the Union Army. Of the conspirators, only Booth was completely successful in carrying out his respective part of the plot. Booth shot Lincoln once in the back of the head. The President died the next morning. Seward was severely wounded but recovered. Vice-President Johnson was never attacked at all || Following the assassination, Booth fled on horseback to southern Maryland, eventually making his way to a farm in rural northern Virginia 12 days later, where he was tracked down. Booth's companion gave himself up, but Booth refused and was shot by a Union soldier after the barn in which he was hiding was set ablaze. Eight other conspirators or suspects were tried and convicted, and four were hanged shortly thereafter.

Portrait of Marie Antoinette (1755-1793) at the age of 14. Baptised Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna (or Maria Antonia Josephina Johanna) was an Archduchess of Austria and the Queen of France and of Navarre. She was the fifteenth child of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa and Holy Roman Emperor Francis I. In April 1770, on the day of her marriage to Louis-Auguste, Dauphin of France, she subsequently became Dauphine of France. Marie Antoinette assumed the title of Queen of France and of Navarre when her husband, Louis XVI of France, ascended the throne upon the death of Louis XV in May 1774.

Marie Antoinette, at the age of thirteen; this miniature portrait was sent to the dauphin, so he could see his bride before he met her, by Joseph Ducreux (1769). The events leading to her eventual betrothal to the Dauphin of France began in 1765, when her father, Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor, died of a stroke in August, leaving Maria Theresa (her mother) to co-rule with her eldest son and heir, the Emperor Joseph II.

Typical fare during the Civil War was very basic. Union soldiers were fed pork or beef, usually salted and boiled to extend the shelf life, coffee, sugar, salt, vinegar, and sometimes dried fruits and vegetables if they were in season. Hard tack, a type of biscuit made from unleavened flour and water, was commonly used to stave off hunger on both sides. After baking, hard tack was dried to increase its shelf life.
