On #ThisDayinHistory 1943, singer songwriter Joni Mitchell is born in Alberta Canada: Even a bout of polio as a child had left her unable to form the chords with her left hand that her ear wanted to hear, so she began experimenting with non-standard guitar tunings that would later become part of her signature sound early on ..#AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.07: When the folk-music revival of the late 1950s and early 1960s came to Saskatoon—the town in which she spent most of her childhood—Mitchell resolved to learn the guitar in order to become a competent accompanist at sing-alongs #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7363 When her mother refused to chip in, citing Joni’s earlier abandonment of the piano, the woman Rolling Stone would later name the greatest female guitarist of all time saved up and purchased a baritone ukulele……..A bout with polio as a child had left Mitchell unable to form the chords with her left hand that her ear wanted to hear, so she began experimenting with non-standard guitar tunings that would later become part of her signature sound early on………It was not as performer, however, but as a songwriter that Mitchell would first make her mark………Most first heard Joni Mitchell’s music as interpreted by Judy Collins, who made a hit out of “Both Sides Now” two years before Mitchell released her own recording of the song herself. In later years, Crosby, Stills and Nash would score a bigger hit with the Mitchell-penned “Woodstock” than she herself would, as would hard-rockers Nazareth with their 1973 cover version of “This Flight Tonight,” from Mitchell’s landmark 1971 album, Blue. #JoniMitchell #SingerSongwriter #woodstock #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1860, Abraham Lincoln is elected the 16th president of the United States, becoming the first Republican to win the presidency #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.06: Lincoln received only 40 percent of the popular vote but handily defeated the three other candidates: Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge, Constitutional Union candidate John Bell, and Northern Democrat Stephen Douglas, a U.S. senator for Illinois #AceHistoryNews reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7355 This photograph of Lincoln, taken in Springfield, Illinois, on May 20, 1860, was the first portrait taken of him after he had received the nomination for president at the Republican National Convention in Chicago……….Even though he’s fifty-one years old here, Lincoln looks much younger in this photograph, his hair, described by Sir William Howard Russell as a “thatch of wild Republican hair.” He is clean shaven though as he did not grow his characteristic beard until October 1860……….He was the first U.S. to wear a beard, and appears clean-shaven in only one-third of the more than one hundred known photographs of him…………By the time of Lincoln’s inauguration on March 4, 1861, the Confederate States of America had been formally established, with Jefferson Davis as its elected president………One month later, the American Civil War began when Confederate forces under General P.G.T. Beauregard opened fire on Union-held Fort Sumter in South Carolina in 1863. #AbrahamLincoln #Presidents #Lincoln #USHistory #AceHistoryNews

#OnThisDay November 05: In the Year of 1605 as Guido Fawkes & Robert Catesby with his followers attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament: The real plotters were in court itself fighting to retain ‘ Protestants rule over rise of Catholicism #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.05: REMEMBER, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot………So why do we remember the 5th, who was Guy Fawkes and why do the British celebrate with fireworks? #AceHistoryDesk reports

Guy Fawkes was a soldier and revolutionary who was sentenced to death for his role in the notorious Gunpowder Plot. Led by Robert Catesby, Fawkes and others plotted to assassinate the Protestant King James I and other members of the British government by blowing up the House of Lords………….Fawkes and his accomplices packed the cellar beneath Westminster Palace with 35 barrels of gunpowder, which they planned to detonate on November 5, 1605, during the opening of Parliament…………An alleged anonymous letter tipped off the authorities and Fawkes and his surviving co-conspirators were found guilty of high treason and sentenced to death………Moments before his execution, Fawkes jumped from a ladder to the gallows, breaking his neck and dying…………In the aftermath of the plot, new laws banned Catholics from voting in elections, practicing law or serving in the military. In fact, Catholics were not fully emancipated in England until the 19th century……….In Great Britain Guy Fawkes Day became a time to gather together, set off fireworks, light bonfires, and burn effigies of Fawkes. #guyfawkes #november5th #bonfirenight #AceNewsDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News

On #ThisDayinHistory 1957, The Soviet Union launches the first animal into space—a dog name Laika —aboard the Sputnik 2 spacecraft #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.03: Laika was, like most dogs recruited for the Soviet Space Program, a stray living on the streets of Moscow: While the plan was to send her into orbit, there wasn’t a way to bring her down…….She was expected to survive for eight to 10 days #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7343 Sadly, Laika didn’t even last a full day, living for only a few hours after takeoff………Her craft wasn’t sufficiently insulated and she started overheating and becoming stressed………Her death was kept a secret though and fake news of Laika’s safety was a regular feature of official Russian broadcasts………At least a dozen more Russian dogs were launched into space in preparation for the first manned Soviet space mission, and at least five of these dogs died in flight………..On April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel into space, aboard the spacecraft Vostok 1………He orbited Earth once before landing safely in the USSR. #Laika #AceNewsDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News

On #ThisDayinHistory 1983, President Reagan signs a bill designating a federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., to be observed on the third Monday of January #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.02: However, the day wasn’t observed by all 50 states until 2000 when South Carolina recognised it #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7337 Multiple states initially reacted negatively for a variety of reasons……….Some stated that a federal holiday would place undue financial burden on states because of the day off………Others simply argued that MLK wasn’t “worthy” of a holiday……….This decision inspired protests in multiple forms……….Perhaps most famously the Public Enemy song called “By The Time I Get To Arizona.” The song was a response to then Arizona Governor Evan Mecham cancelled MLK Day, saying, “I guess King did a lot for the colored people, but I don’t think he deserves a national holiday.” #MLK #MLKDay #holidayhistory #ByTheTimeIGetToArizona #PublicEnemy #AceHistoryNews is provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
