Mini-Quiz – How well do you know history?

Mini-Quiz – How well do you know history?

World history has many secret chapters that are conveniently left out of the history text books and definitely left out of the politically correct news that we are inundated with.   See how well you know this forgotten history!

  1. The photo above was taken in the 1890s in the first country to use the Nazi salute in order to express complete loyalty to the central government.  What country was it?

2. In what country was the first National Socialist Party?   It was not Germany.  After World War I some disgruntled Germans liked the name of the original National Socialist Party and so created the National Socialist German Workers (NAZI) Party in imitation.

3. Now for some American history . . . who wrote the American Pledge of Allegiance and also started a political campaign to have flag poles erected outside every school for display of the United States flag?  It would be some time before flags were ever seen inside schools.

Will send you the answers in a little bit.

The following two tabs change content below.
Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.

    1. I’m pretty sure it was the US.
    2. I’m guessing the US on that, too
    3. I forgot his name, but he was an Italian immigrant who also wrote about liberty and justice for all races, which was taken out. Under God wasn’t added until the 1950s, so we wouldn’t be confused with atheistic communism, I suppose

  2. Dang, you are good!

    Bellamy is actually an Anglo-Norman name derived from the French words Belle Ami = Beautiful Friend

    Yes, the German Nazi’s and in particular, Adolf Hitler, corrupted everything that the Bellamy Brothers created into something just the opposite.

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
