- You've Heard Of Paul Revere, BUT who was Wentworth Cheswill
"The British are coming! The British are coming!" Paul Revere heroically races across counties, crying out warnings of the British coming to attack the new found American country, desperately trying to keep its freedoms from the tyrannical king of England. A lone man riding through the night to save America....... Yes this is the story we were all told in elementary school. Although this is mostly true, there are a few details that were left out. One being that Paul Revere did warn that the British were coming but never shouted that phrase. He rode quickly but silently through the streets until he met upon with John Hancock and Samuel Adams to warn them that the British were coming to arrest them. It is important to understand that it was not just one ride or even one night but many rides over a few years. Secondly, Revere was not the only one on horse back to warn the British were coming, there were at least 5 others, including a black man named Wentworth Cheswill. Cheswill was a man of the community, a pillar. Wentworth was an elected official. He was first elected to office in 1768 as the town constable. Later, Cheswill was elected to offices every year with the exception of 1788, until his death in 1817. Some of his appointments were town selectman, assessor, and auditor. During the Revolutionary War Cheswell was for the patriotic cause and signed a document along with 162 others called the Association Test. He was elected town messenger for the Committee of Safety, which entrusted him to carry news to and from the provincial committee in Exeter, New Hampshire and on December 13, 1774, Cheswill, Paul Revere and others rode together in unity to warn that the British were coming. Another important figure who rode to warn the British were coming was a woman named Sybil Ludington who was only 16 years of age when she became a night rider. She was actually the last of the riders to join as she didn't take her ride until 1777. Sybil rode twice the distance of Paul Revere and she is significant to our history.
- Did Martin Luther King Support Abortion?
Short Answer: No Expounded Answer: In 1966 Martin Luther King accepted the Margaret Sanger award, well his wife did in his stead. But non the less he did accept it. Planned Parenthood often claims that Martin Luther King was for abortion because he accepted this award. This is where hidden History comes in and knowing the whole Truth matters. See King accepted this award in 1966, Planned Parenthood did not start performing abortions publicly until 1970. Martin Luther King was for family planning. He believed it was important to be married and plan for a family before starting one, not abortion. It is important to understand what Margaret Sanger believed and what values she placed into Planned Parenthood. Many believe Sanger was a woman who was ahead of her time, that she was revolutionary and had vision for all women. As a matter of fact Corretta King praised Sanger for her efforts. Was her famous quote stating how she did not want word to get out, that she wanted to exterminate black people, taken out of context? “The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” -Margaret Sanger This makes sense doesn't it? How many times have you or I done something in good will and it was misconstrued. Could it be the very thing she tried to avoid actually happened as the Washing Times claimed? To really answer this we must dig a little further then just a quote. We must take a look at her other writings, her associates, who worked intimately with her. It is from these things we can truly learn who Margaret Sanger was, and what her intentions really were. Margaret Sanger was prolific in the Birth Control movement. In 1921 she founded The American Birth Control League. If we want to find these answers we need to look at who was involved and controlled this organization. Harvard graduate Lothrop Stoddard who stated "Non White races must be excluded from America...." was on the board of directors. One of his books was titled The Rising Tide of Color Against a White World. This book was widely promoted by the Klu Klux Klan. Another book he authored, The Dragon and The Cross was well received during Nazi Germany and was as a model for the Nazi, Socialist agenda. She invited Hitler’s top eugenics adviser, Dr. Eugen Fischer, to give a speaking tour of the United States in the 1930s. Fischer was a leader in one of the systems of concentration camps in South Western Africa, where blacks were rounded up, experimented on, killed, or used for free labor. Under Hitler Fischer would plan the sterilization of all blacks in the countries that would succumb to German rule. In 1927 Margaret Sanger held a World Population Conference in Geneva Switzerland in which she invited Eugen Fischer to have a leadership role in the conference “The Pivot of Civilization” (1922): “We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” - Margaret Sanger From 1939 to 1942, Sanger was an honorary delegate of the Birth Control Federation of America, which included a supervisory role alongside Clarence Gamble, heir to Proctor and Gamble, in the Negro Project, an effort to deliver information about birth control in poor black neighborhoods. Clarence Gamble was a founding member of the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947. The League supported programs of forced sterilization of both men and women, mostly poor, of assumed low IQ, and predominantly African-American, without their consent. It is said their goal was to reduce the state's welfare burden and improve the gene pool. After a few name changes in the 70's, this treacherous program ended in 1988. It would take countless hours to include the many quotes and links Margaret Sanger had to Eugenics. Looking at this information alone it is impossible to concede that Sanger was innocent in her comments quoted in the Washington Times. It is important to know that Margaret Sanger is not the only big name involved in the Eugenics movement. She could not do this alone. Many high profile people and organizations made major contributions to the eugenics movement including Rockefeller and Carnegie. This is why History is so important. This is why we must never erase it. We must seek and understand the bad as well as the good, and learn to never repeat the bad.
- Is It True Black People Were Really Considered 3/5's Of A Person?
Short Answer: NO The Three-Fifths Compromise has stirred up a lot of controversy in the last few years. Many have been led to believe that the constitution actually read that black people were considered 3/5's of a person. It is understandable how this could be misconstrued when you hear about it. But this misunderstanding is a major reason why we need to know History for ourselves and not believe everything we hear. The Three-Fifths Compromise was an agreement between delegates from the Northern and the Southern states in 1787. This agreement stated that three-fifths of the slave population would be counted for determining direct taxation and representation in the House of Representatives, not that slaves were 3/5 of a person. It is important to note that this rule was pertaining to slaves not necessarily black persons as not all black people were slaves and not all whites were slave owners. The term that was used in the Constitution was not slave, instead it was a person who was bound to service. The northern states wanted to abolish slavery and its abhorrent acts, where the southern states refused too. Slave states considered slaves as property. If slaves were property than slavery was justified, but if slaves were in fact people well then they deserve the same rights as everyone else in America. Pro slavery states were obviously against considering slaves as people until it came down for representation in Congress, when it came to representation, they wanted slaves to be considered people. The northern states argued, you can't have it both ways. Of course this proposed a conundrum for the pro slavery states, because if slaves were just property they could justify keeping them slaves. But if they were people then slaves should have constitutional rights and therefore they deserved the same freedoms written in the Constitution. Unfortunately both the northern and southern states needed each to form their Union. Together they had strength against the British.
