Parody of the Historical Interviews to the French, following the line of my novel (Robespierre part removed for sensible audiences).

When I was upset or suffering from a terrible day, nothing cheered me up more, even for a minute, than watching this man’s films or watching his interviews online. There is no way you could not laugh or crack a smile and his comedic nature. Thank you Robin.

Who else remembers this cartoon?
I was 3 years old or something when it aired in Italy … and, until few years ago, I remembered only the intro and the weird floating head who quite scared me. 

thefabulousoriginal:

Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens were both on Liberty’s Kids, but never together. I often find myself wishing they had been. There probably would have been NO references to their “alleged” relationship (there are barely even references to heterosexual relationships unless the two parties are married, which pisses me off because I ship James and Sarah, but I digress), but they should have just shown the two of them being besties, and then we would just KNOW.

There was Laurens Jr?!?

These books are the reason I’m a snarky smart ass today. Thankful for you, Amelia.

john-laurens:

"Battle of Coosawhatchie, Rescue of Colonel John Laurens by Major William Hazzard Wigg on ‘Independence’, May 3, 1779" - painting by Carroll N. Jones, Jr.

Here’s the print I ordered of this painting I posted a while ago.  The print should say May 3, 1779, but it has the year 1774 for some reason.

The second picture is a close-up of Laurens because he’s the best part.  The painting was done in 1976, so I don’t know how accurate his hair color is.

Open the pictures in a new tab to zoom in.

You can purchase this print here.

Was he killed instantly?  i thought he was, but I can’t remember why I think that.  Thanks for posting this.

From what I’ve read, it seems he was killed very quickly after he attacked the British - but that was near the Combahee River and was on August 27, 1782.  This is an account of a different battle.
