On #ThisDayinHistory 1989, a group of Prague students sparked what became known as the Velvet Revolution: Students gathered in for a peaceful demonstration to commemorate and mark the 50th anniversary of a protestor’s death in a student demonstration against the Nazi occupation #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.17: Unfortunately, their protest that day ended with riot police severely beating the demonstrators: Of course, what they didn’t know was that their protest would trigger the events which would essentially end the rule of communism in the country 10 days later #AceNewsDesk reports

The protest on the 17th triggered a veritable onslaught of popular protests, held almost daily in Czech and Slovak cities culminating in the appointment of the country’s first non-communist government in more than 40 years and the election of Vaclav Havel, a playwright turned dissident as president……..This non-violent transition of power earned the “Velvet Revolution” moniker primarily for its peaceful nature – not a single life was lost during the process. #VelvetRevolution #Prague #VaclavHavel #lavieboheme #AceHistoryDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News

On #ThisDayinHistory 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is dedicated in Washington after a weeklong national salute to Americans who served in the Vietnam War and a march to its site by thousands of veterans of the conflict #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.13: The long-awaited memorial was a simple V-shaped black-granite wall inscribed with the names of the 57,939 Americans who died in the conflict: Arranged in order of death, not rank, as was common in other memorials #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7404. The designer of the memorial was Maya Lin, a 21-year-old Yale University architecture student who entered a nationwide competition to create a design for the monument……….Many were initially opposed to Lin’s winning design, however, a remarkable shift in public opinion occurred in the months after the memorial’s dedication…….Veterans and families of the dead walked the black reflective wall, seeking the names of their loved ones killed in the conflict……….Once the name was located, visitors often made an etching or left a private offering, from notes and flowers to dog tags and cans of beer……..The Vietnam Veterans Memorial soon became one of the most visited memorials in the nation’s capital. #OTD #VietnamWar #MayaLin #Memorial #NationalMall #AceHistoryDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media Reports

On #ThisDayinHistory 1954, Ellis Island, the gateway to America, shuts it doors after processing more than 12 million immigrants since opening in 1892: Today an estimate of 40% can trace their roots back to to this day #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.12: Today, an estimated 40 percent of all Americans can trace their roots through Ellis Island, located in New York Harbor off the New Jersey coast and named for merchant Samuel Ellis, who owned the land in the 1770s On January 2, 1892, 15-year-old Annie Moore from Ireland, became the first person to pass through the newly opened Ellis Island, which President Benjamin Harrison designated as America’s first federal immigration center in 1890 #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7399. Before that time, the processing of immigrants had been handled by individual states……..Immigration to Ellis Island peaked between 1892 and 1924, and during the busiest year of operation, 1907, over 1 million people were processed at Ellis Island………..With America’s entrance into World War I, immigration declined and Ellis Island was used as a detention center for suspected enemies……Following the war, Congress passed quota laws and the Immigration Act of 1924, which sharply reduced the number of newcomers allowed into the country and also enabled immigrants to be processed at U.S. consulates abroad……….After 1924, Ellis Island switched from a processing center to serving other purposes, such as a detention and deportation center for illegal immigrants, a hospital for wounded soldiers during World War II and a Coast Guard training centre #OTD #EllisIsland #immigration #USHistory #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends what was called ‘ War to END ALL Wars ‘ even with 9-million soldiers dead and 21-million injured not for too long did Peace reign on earth God Bless All Those on Armistice Day #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.11: At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7393 The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives………In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure. World War I was known as the “war to end all wars” because of the great slaughter and destruction it caused………..Unfortunately, the peace treaty that officially ended the conflict—the Treaty of Versailles of 1919—forced punitive terms on Germany that destabilized Europe and laid the groundwork for World War II……….Commemorated in many countries as Armistice Day the following year, November 11th became a federal holiday in the United States in 1938………In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became legally known as Veterans Day…….#OTD #VeteransDay #ArmisticeDay #WWI #GreatWar #HonorAVet #Veterans #AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.10: The show was the brainchild of Joan Ganz Cooney, who wanted to create programming for preschoolers that was both entertaining and educational..She wanted to use TV as a way to help underprivileged 3- 5 year-olds prepare for kindergarten #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7385 @SesameStreet was set in a fictional New York neighborhood and included ethnically diverse characters and positive social messages………From the show’s inception, its stars have been the Muppets………Puppeteer Jim Henson created a cast of characters including Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Grover and Big Bird…….The subjects tackled by “Sesame Street” have evolved with the times………In 2002, the South African version of the program, “Takalani Sesame,” introduced a 5-year-old Muppet character named Kami who is HIV-positive, in order to help children living with the stigma of a disease that has reached epidemic proportions……..In 2015, a new Muppet named Julia, a four-year-old girl with autism was introduced on the show’s U.S……….Since its inception, over 74 million Americans have watched “Sesame Street.” But we’ve still never figured out how to get to Sesame Street…#SesameStreet #JimHenson #Muppets #OTD #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1989, the Berlin Wall was officially opened, allowing travel from East to West Berlin: The following day, celebrating Germans began to tear the wall down #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.09: One of the ugliest and most infamous symbols of the Cold War was soon reduced to rubble that was quickly snatched up by souvenir hunters: The decision followed a similar decision by Hungarian officials a few weeks earlier to open the border between Hungary and Austria #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7375 This effectively ended the purpose of the Berlin Wall, since East German citizens could now circumvent it by going through Hungary, into Austria, and into West Germany……..The decision to open the wall was also a reflection of the immense political changes taking place in East Germany, where the old communist leadership was rapidly losing power and the populace was demanding free elections and movement toward a free market system………Unlike 1956 and 1968, when Soviet forces ruthlessly crushed protests in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, respectively, Gorbachev actually encouraged the East German action………….As such, the destruction of the Berlin Wall was one of the most significant actions leading to the end of the Cold War. #BerlinWall #1989 #ColdWar #OTD #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1895, physicist Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen becomes the first person to observe X-rays: Ront gen’s discovery was labeled a medical miracle & soon became an important diagnostic tool in medicine , allowing doctors to see inside the human body for the first time #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.08: X-rays are electromagnetic energy waves that act similarly to light rays, but at wavelengths approximately 1,000 times shorter than those of light: Rontgen’s discovery was labeled a medical miracle and X-rays soon became an important diagnostic tool in medicine, allowing doctors to see inside the human body for the first time without exploratory surgery #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7369 During the Balkan War, X-rays were first used on a military battlefield to find bullets and broken bones inside patients. Scientists were quick to realize the benefits of X-rays, but slower to comprehend radiation’s harmful effects………..During the 1930s – 50s, in fact, many American shoe stores featured shoe-fitting fluoroscopes that used to X-rays to enable customers to see the bones in their feet; it wasn’t until the 1950s that this practice was determined to be risky……….Wilhelm Rontgen received numerous accolades for his work, including the first Nobel Prize in physics in 1901, yet he never tried to patent his discovery……….Today, X-ray technology is widely used in medicine, material analysis and devices such as airport security scanners #OTD #AceHistoryNews
