On #ThisDayinHistory 1966, novelist Truman Capote threw the 20th Century’s most legendary party at t he Plaza Hotel, a black and white gala affair #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.28: He invited 540 guests from radically different backgrounds, professions, and even continents (at least four were represented at the ball): #AceHistoryDesk reports

So he made a savvy calculation and made Katharine Graham the party’s purported guest of honor……..Graham had assumed leadership of @washingtonpost and @newsweek after her husband’s 1963 suicide. Capote told her he wanted to cheer her up and the invite allowed him to capitalize on social and media interest in the mysterious Graham before turning the question of who else would be invited into a media opportunity……..The eventual guest list included the Maharani of Jaipur, residents of Holcomb, Kansas, Andy Warhol, a hotel doorman, and the First Lady.

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7497 Halston would later design the 1976 US Olympic team’s uniforms and work with a group of “Halstonettes” who included Pat Cleveland and Beverly Johnson. Later called “a tour de force of social engineering,” the party was seen as a particular moment on the cusp of radical social change. In the midst of the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam War, the party’s guest list represented a carefully curated cross-section of important people in American culture…… “This was the last possible moment such a party could take place and not be widely excoriated,” Graham wrote. #TrumanCapote #CandiceBergen #Society #party #blackandwhite #whiterabbit #OTD #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1942, Casablanca, a World War II-era drama starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, premieres in New York City; it will go on to become one of the most beloved Hollywood movies in history.

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.26: Casablanca was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Bogart: It took home three Oscars, for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7490 The film featured a number of now-iconic quotes, including Rick’s line to Ilsa: “Here’s looking at you, kid,” as well as “Round up the usual suspects,” “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship” and “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”……….The film came outduring the war and as a result many of the extras and actors were recent European emigres fleeing the conflict…………The tears were real for many during the battle-of-the-anthems sequence………Events took a further turn on November 8, 1942 during Operation Torch, when Allied troops invaded French North Africa, with the city of Casablanca itself being recaptured on November 10th…………..The news caused some hand-wringing at Warner Bros., with executives proposing that the film should be altered to reflect current affairs………….Plans were held up due to Rains’ filming commitments elsewhere, and in the meantime, rival studio executive David O. Selznick screened the film and told Jack Warner he’d be mad to alter the ending and should release the film as soon as possible to tie it to the invasion, Warner listened. #Casablanca #Casablanca75 #PlayitSam #AsTimeGoesBy #AlwaysHaveParis #OTD #AceHistoryNews

#ThisDayinHistory 1960 is International Day For Elimination of Violence Against Women’s, marked today becaus e of the three Mirabal sisters, Minerva, Patria, and Maria Teresa, were brutally murdered on the orders of t he Dominican Republic’s leader, Rafael Trujillo #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.26: The sisters hadn’t been terribly involved in politics before, but Trujillo’s actions inspired their activism: Throughout his reign, Trujillo was known to scout the country for beautiful women he could use for his pleasure #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7488
Women who really couldn’t say no for fear of his retribution. Minerva soon realized that she was his scouted target, and turned him down…..It is said when forced the issue, she slapped him in the face……….Thereafter, Trujillo retaliated………….She was barred from her law school classes until she gave a public speech extolling Trujillo’s virtues. When she finally graduated years later she was a license to practice law…………….Her father was imprisoned and died shortly after being released……… Some time later, Minerva and her mother were kept as virtual prisoners in their hotel on a visit to the capitol……………Trujillo’s actions turned her sisters and their husbands into activists as well…………Collectively the three activist sisters became known by the codename Las Mariposas (the butterflies). When their attempt to assassinate Trujillo was exposed, the entire group was jailed……..Due to international pressure, the women were quickly released, but despite all the male conspirators being imprisoned Trujillo wanted revenge………Trujillo transferred their jailed husbands to a remote jail…………They knew it was a trap and their friends begged them not to not to go………..Secret police ambushed their jeep in the mountain pass……………Patria ran to a nearby truck, told the driver who they were, and to spread the word……..The secret police strangled and beat them, put them back into their jeep, and threw it over a cliff, to make it look like an accident #MirabalSisters #DominicanRepublic #History #WomensHistory #OTD #AceHistoryNews

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

On #ThisDayinHistory 1969, “Sesame Street,” makes its broadcast debut. It went on to bec ome the most widely viewed children’s program in the world and has aired in more than 120 countries #Muppets #Kermit #AceHistoryNews – @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
