NW Okie's Journey

I remember the Reagan era presidency of the 1980s over 30 years ago)? You know, the "trickle down," "Reaganomics" that did not trickle down and caused the market crash of 1987? We as American citizens went from a "B" movie star in the 1980s to a "B" reality star in the 21st century 2016! What has our democracy come to? What are we going to do about it?

1781 Battle of Cowpens, Scene In the Revolution

Do you remember your high school history classes? Did they ever teach us the "why" and "what" and "where" concerning the "Battle of Cowpens?" I don't believe they ever did in my small rural Oklahoma high school. Did they in yours?

Here is the story of the Battle of Cowpens as written in 1843 April 8, The Columbia Democrat, Bloomsburg, PA, page 1:

Presidential Inauguration & 20th Amendment (1930s)

Prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment in the early 1930a, inauguration day was always March 4, the anniversary of the Constitution first taking affect in 1789.

The following is taken from The Times, San Mateo, California, 9 Jan 1937, Saturday, page 16:
