To my brother Newal & occasional detractor. Since whenever I post something remotely (“liberal”?),we’ve been here before, I’d like to smooth things out a little. I love history too. My first book was The Yearling, I also read The Red Badge of Courage at an early age and was on the American History Club in high school. Finally in college I read The History of Latin America (author?), The Colonial Heritage of Latin America ( Stanley & Barbara Stein), One Flew Overthe Cookoo’s Nest, The Ugly American, Ball Four, Shakespeare, The Iliad & the Odyssey and The Tale of Two Cities. While in the USAF I mostly read World War I & II history. All told a diverse body of subjects you might agree. Now here in Myrtle Beach, the best veteran community in the USA, I’ve taken an interest to the impact the south had on the American revolution. You might like The Swampfox by John Oller or for those faith minded; Miracles of the American Revolution by Larkin Spivey. And to my other good brothers on this thread, I found Larry’s references to the Maidu tribe & culture quite interesting when, as we all probably were, taught more about the plains Indians in school. Not that it means anything, my grandma on my fathers part was one beautiful Taino/French blooded woman, she lived until the age of 106. Her maiden name Miletti, you know, like in Francois Millet the renouned French artist? Well, like a lot of spanglishsised words and names I guess they added the I, easier on the tongue. Anyway, long story short, not much traceable proof since the waves competing European countries, the Dutch in 1625 & the English in 1702, burned down San Juan & Arecibo along with lineage records for control of the last stop to Europe. So there, my proud Puerto Rican American history for students & another non political testament to the diaspora of humankind.
