DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK: THE HOUNDS OF HELL UNLEASHED
4586
1001 Heroes, Legends, Histories &amp; Mysteries podcast rips the cover off the politically correct version of the American Indian fighting only to protect his lands from white encroachment., as we look into the unholy alliance between the Iroquois nation and the British power brokers trying to stamp out American independence during the American Revolution between 1775 and 1783.&nbsp; Part one begins with Lord Chatham's now famous speech to the House of Commons in 1777 expressing his shock and sadness that the once honorable British army was using and encouraging Indian atrocities- including scalping and cannibalism-against the colonists- and he, correctly assessing the outcome early in this war, was asking for a peace before it was too late, He states that England had no chance of winning that war.&nbsp; Also discussed in part one- Sir William Johnson and his successor, white and Indian problems and mistakes, two captive accounts, one from Ft. Niagara, raids and skirmishes in 1777-78, setting the stage for part two with the Massacre at Wyoming (Pennsylvania), the Massacre at Cherry Valley, and the atrocities of the Tories and Indians across the frontier.&nbsp; <br><strong>ALL NEW LINKS AUGUST 2018<br><br>SUPPORT OUR SHOW MONTHLY AT PATREON<br>Become an Assistant Producer at 1001 Stories Network ( a great resume enhancement) and support us at Patreon today!

MOTHER JONES AND THE BATTLE OF BLAIR MOUNTAIN W. VA (PT 1)
3487
In MOTHER JONES AND THE BATTLE OF BLAIR MOUNTAIN PT 1 we take an in-depth look at the horrific conditions that existed in the local mining communities in southwestern West Virginia at the turn of the 20th century, where men were literally worked to death, armed guards on the company payroll enforced their own brand of law, and families owned their soul to the company store. The coal companies controlled every aspect of the miner's lives, almost always had local law, state law, and politicians in their pocket, and could literally murder men, women, and children at will without being arrested. The coal miner's union, the UAMW (United Association of Mine Workers) was making inroads at that time in many states, and their leading representative was a fiery old spinster named Mother Jones, who went into the trouble areas and gave support to the families and advice to the miners. Her autobiography in parts is included here, and gives us a first hand account of the struggles that were taking place.<br>We are very grateful to Louise Mosrie for giving us the ok to use her song "The Battle of Blair Mountain", which she co-wrote with Mike Richardson. Anna Uptain does a great job with banjo and backup vocals.<br><strong>SUPPORT OUR SHOW MONTHLY!</strong>&nbsp; <strong>Become an Assistant Producer at 1001 Stories Network ( a great resume enhancement) and support us at Patreon today!

THE LOST COLONY: AMERICAS GREATEST UNSOLVED MYSTERY (PT 1): THE DARE STONES
4157
"The Lost Colony Part 1: The Dare Stones": In 1587, 115 men, women, and children were delivered to Roanoke Island on the Carolina coast with the hopes of beginning a new English colony in the New World. Storms and war with Spain prevented any supply ships from reaching them for three years, and when the ships arrived, they found the fort deserted, and the word "Croatoan" carved onto the fort's palisade walls. The 115 settlers were gone, leaving no trace, until 1937, when a traveler named Hammond found a large stone at the side of a North Carolina road containing what appeared to be a desperate chiseled message from Eleanor Dare. More stones were found, each containing a clue to the whereabouts of the surviving colonists. They came to be called The Dare Stones. The first stone contained this carved inscription, written in the Elizabethan dialect: <a href="https://nativeheritageproject.com/2013/12/08/the-dare-stones-1-through-48/">&nbsp;https://nativeheritageproject.com/2013/12/08/the-dare-stones-1-through-48/<br></a><br>Enjoy 1001 Stories for The Road at Overcast here:<a href="https://overcast.fm/itunes1227478901/1001-stories-for-the-road">https://overcast.fm/itunes1227478901/1001-stories-for-the-road<br></a><br>Catch all our archives at our home site: www.1001storiespodcast.com Music: Mattia Cupelli : The Call (copyright and royalty free) (links listed) - Like my Facebook page!: https://www.facebook.com/MattiaCupell... - iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/ma... #thelostcolony #lostcolony #darestones #mystery #sirwalterraleigh #johnwhite<br><br><br>

BLACK SAM BELLAMY AND THE WRECK OF THE WHYDAH (AND BONUS EPISODE)
3899
"Black Sam Bellamy and the Wreck of the Whydah" tells the story of the notorious pirate Sam Bellamy, who, according to Forbes Magazine, acquired more stolen wealth than any pirate in his time.&nbsp; He was only involved in piracy for one year, 1716-1717, but was remarkably successful, and had accumulated a wealth of treasure. According to Cape Cod legend, he, upon setting out upon his voyages, had fallen in live with a 16 year old girl named Maria Hallett who he promised he would return to as a wealthy man. She became pregnant, accidentally killed her baby, and was imprisoned for neglect, going crazy through it all. Sam returned, and was just off the coast where she was staying when a storm struck and his ship went down. As the years went by, the legend that his ship had contained riches faded and disappeared, until 1984, when a treasure hunter named Barry Clifford found the wreck containing 4 tons of silver and gold. <br><br>May 2018&nbsp; Check out our new E Book at Amazon- "1001 Classic Short Stories Fireside Collection Vol i" and leave us a nice review to get us going-Thank You&nbsp; (More collections to come) <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories">https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories<br></a><br>BONUS EPISODE: ELIZA LUCAS AND HER CASH CROP (FROM 1001 STORIES FOR THE ROAD) The story of a 16 year old girl whose hard work and ideas saved the struggling colony of South Carolina and made her the 1st woman to be inducted into the South Carolina Business Hall of Fame.<br><br>Get the FREE app with all three 1001 shows here: <br><br>Apple Users:<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/1001-stories-network/id1352520309?mt=8">https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/1001-stories-network/id1352520309?mt=8<br></a><br>Google Play Android App: <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tv.wizzard.android.storiesnetwork&amp;hl=en_US">https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tv.wizzard.android.storiesnetwork&amp;hl=en_US<br></a><br>THEN become a subscriber for 2.99/mo and GET ALL our episodes plus bonus episodes plus our undying gratitude: <a href="https://my.libsyn.com/subscription/list/1001stories">https://my.libsyn.com/subscription/list/1001stories<br></a><br>Get the new 1001 Classic Short Stories Fireside Collection Volume 1 at our new (and soon to grow) store at&nbsp; <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525812856&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=1001+classic+short+stories">https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525812856&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=1001+classic+short+stories<br></a><br>It has 10 GREAT short stories in Kindle print.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND: THE INCREDIBLE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE FAMOUS SPIELBERG MOVIE
3459
"Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The Incredible Story That Inspired the Spielberg Movie", tells of Project Serpo, a top-secret U.S. government program that arranged an exchange program with aliens that sent 12 astronauts to a planet 40 light years away with hopes of gaining insight to another civilization and their technologies. Inspired largely by a well-known physicist named Dr. Hynek, who had been the head of the classified "UFO Project Blue Book", and was hired by Speilberg and Columbia Pictures to advise the production of the 1977 film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", certain story lines and scenes, such as the one showing 12 astronauts boarding an alien craft near the end of the picture, are said to have been very close to reality.<br><br>Must see Paul Hellyer Video "Earthshaking Confession" UAMN TV&nbsp; Feb 13, 2018&nbsp; <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgrCQpWz6iI&amp;t=315s">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgrCQpWz6iI&amp;t=315s<br></a><br>#CloseEncountersofthethirdkind&nbsp; #StevenSpielberg #projectbluebook&nbsp; #projectserpo&nbsp; #UFO #paulhellyer<br><br><strong>Become a Premium Member Today</strong>!

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES: CATTLE MUTILATIONS, UFO'S & BLACK OPS
5039
"Unsolved Mysteries: Cattle Mutilations, UFO's &amp; Black Ops" reveals the story of the still unsolved 10,000+ cattle mutilations which have been taking place in the U.S. for over 50 years, and the efforts by both the FBI and independent investigators to come up with the reason cattle are being cruelly killed in a manner that does not fit the pattern of a natural or predatory death.&nbsp; From the first publicized mutilation in 1967, reports of UFO's in the areas immediately near the mutilations, strange horse and cattle deaths indicating that the animals had been drained of blood and then dropped from the sky, and later numerous witness reports of black helicopters and government intervention, combined with strange goings on at military bases in New Mexico, have left three intensive FBI and ATF investigations with more questions than answers.<br><br>A big thanks to Chuck Zukowski at <a href="http://www.UFONut.com">www.UFONut.com</a> for his video and cooperation.

WAS MY BROTHER IN THE BATTLE?
3143
"Was My Brother In The Battle?"- What Civil War meant to my family-Six hundred thousand men died or were wounded in the American Civil War. Just as many families were affected. Mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers all felt the hopelessness of not knowing if their sons and brothers would ever come home. Steven Foster captured this feeling of helplessness and rage in his song "Was My Brother In The Battle?, which is sung here, credits below, and thanks to Cinzi Lavin and Jennifer Love, arrangement and vocals respectively, for their rendition. Did the Civil War really matter? Sadly, many people today don't know who fought in the war, when it took place, or who won it. Many more don't know why they fought. It's popular now to look back and say what a waste it was and that it should never have been fought, but history can't be written off so simply like that. Those who write it off have to look at it in context- meaning you have to put yourself in that time and place, understand what tensions were building, and why. Only then do you realize that it was unavoidable. Both sides could not have found the answer any other way, and the memories of the men on both sides, North and South, who were caught up in the war need to be preserved, not torn down. &nbsp; This is the story of my great-great Uncle, who fought for the Union during the American Civil War, and who gave his life to preserve one nation, undivided, at the Battle of Petersburg in 1864. He joined the New York 5th Infantry, a Zouave Regiment, and was involved in a number of engagements, including Cold Harbor, Charleston, Fort Sumter, and Petersburg.&nbsp; Their sacrifice gave us an end to slavery, a united America, a path to voting and equal rights, veterans hospitals, and the opening of the west, to name just a few. It also gave us the most powerful nation on earth. Here you'll find the story of William Carney, the first black man to earn the Congressional Medal of Honor, which he did while fighting for the Massachusetts Volunteer 54th Infantry, who was wounded under heavy fire as he delivered the union flag to his comrades on the front line, saying “Boys, don’t worry, it never touched the ground”. It is a true story. He survived the war. He risked death for the flag and what it stood for. So did Horace Hagadorn., who paid the ultimate price. He died fighting at Petersburg. His two letters to his sister Rebecca are included here. &nbsp; A huge thanks to Cinzi Lavin for allowing us to use her music. "Was My Brother in the Battle?" Music and lyrics by Stephen Foster; lyrics adapted and piano/vocal arrangement by Cinzi Lavin. Jennifer Love vocals, Cinzi Lavin piano. &nbsp;<br><br><br>

OPERATION MARKETGARDEN (PT II): A BRIDGE NOT TOO FAR: SPIES, LIES, AND ALIBIS
6665
OPERATION MARKETGARDEN (PT II): SPIES, LIES, AND ALIBIS&nbsp; The two part story of a bold plan to strike the heart of Germany by dropping 36,000 British, Canadian, Polish, and American paratroopers in German controlled Holland in Sept 1944. Dedicated to the men who never made it back, this story doesn't pull any punches as to the command elements who screwed up through a combination of poor planning and in some cases, very likely sabotage. This is an incredible story of heroism on the part of the men who fought and liberated the south of Holland in the process. Recommended: A Bridge Too Far (Movie ) 1977 Part One: Field Marshall Montgomery devises a bold and desperate plan to drop 36,000 men behind German lines and Eisenhower reluctantly agrees. The plan is full of holes from the beginning, as intelligence is ignored and the wrong men are appointed for a few critical command positions. Finally, Sept 17th arrives and a 90 mile long, 3 mile wide armada of planes and wooden gliders take off from 24 air bases in England as the mission begins. It is the largest single day air drop in recorded history. Part II The American 82nd and 101st Airborne begin heavy fighting in Holland to secure the bridges spanning the nine waterways which the British 30 Corps, with its tanks and infantry, will need to cross along its 60 mile run from the Belgium border in the south up to Arheim, near the German border. The British 1st airborne is dropped 8 miles west of its target Arnheim, and finds that it is separated from Arnheim by two Panzer divisions. Only one brigade, Frost's Brigade, reaches Arnheim, and fights desperately to control and then hold the bridge long enough for 30 corps to reach it. Interview segments with Moffit Burris (82nd Airborne) and Brigade Commander Tony Hibbert (British 1st Paratroop Div) provided by Tony Gosling from "A Bridge Not Far" YouTube. An interview with historian Tony Gosling discussing this documentary is included at the end of this story. Includes the story of the spy "King Kong" who sabotaged the mission. Voices of: Maj.

H.H. HOLMES THE AMERICAN RIPPER 1001 INTERVIEWS AUTHOR JEFF MUDGETT
3934
AMERICAN RIPPER, Part 4 of our Jack The Ripper series features an exclusive interview with Jeff Mudgett, host of AE/History Channel's recent 8 episode documentary on the life and crimes of Herman Webster Mudgett, better known as H.H. Holmes, serial killer, and evidence that their research team has complied that they believe links HH Holmes to the Ripper murders in London. Mudgett discusses his challenges in writing the book "Bloodstains", which inspired the show, as well as the life and crimes of his great-great grandfather, HH Holmes, whose body count from his murder palace hotel in Chicago in 1893 and that of his mistresses and associates will never be fully known, as Holmes tended to incinerate most of his victims. Mudgett also discusses what it was like working with the History Channel teams in the making of the special. &nbsp;<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

A MAD DOCTOR, A CASTLE, AND A MONSTER: HOW FRANKENSTEIN CAME TO BE
3283
"Frankenstein-The Story Behind The Story" tells what inspired the original story of a murderous monster created from inanimate parts by an overreaching doctor, it was first published in 1820, was a major success worldwide, and has spawned countless books, movies, and debates regarding the limits we place on man's constant quest to play god by creating life artificially. Many of you are familiar with the story, but few people know what actually inspired 18 year- old Mary Sjelley to write it. Its a drama in itself, complete with illicit affairs, shared sex, mad doctors, adultery, two famous English authors, a candlelit villa on Lake Geneva, a wild dream, and a ghostly castle deep in Germany where untold experiments were being carried out on human cadavers, castle that we'll be introduced to by Robb Demarest, who led his Ghost Hunters International team there for ScyFy Network just a few years ago. &nbsp;<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

JACK THE RIPPER: BRITAIN'S GREATEST UNSOLVED MYSTERY (PT 1): MAYHEM IN WHITECHAPEL
5739
Jack the Ripper: Britain's Rreatest Unsolved Mystery. One of our TOP all-time episodes. In August of 1888 an outbreak of brutal crimes began that shocked Victorian England and put Scotland Yard back on its heels. One man, apparently acting alone, was butchering prostitutes in the poor Whitechapel area in London's East End, and the police were powerless to stop him. The newspapers gave him the name "Jack The Ripper". Today, hundreds of books and video documentaries claim to have found the real killer, but DNA claims have been brought into question and many theories as to the killer's identity have been brought forward and subsequently discounted. Join us for this two part special and learn why Jack The Ripper's real identity has never been proven, who his victims were, who the suspects were, and who the top detectives believed committed the crimes. &nbsp; Music: Dark Tension Rising- Cupelli - Official Mattia Cupelli Music Website: http://mattiacupelli.weebly.com/ruins... https://www.facebook.com/MattiaCupelliComposer Something Wicked- Ross Bugden TWITTER! : https://twitter.com/RossBugden (@rossbugden) #jacktheripper<br><br><br>

TSUNAMI! (PT I): WAVES OF DEATH
3916
TSUNAMI (PT I) WAVES OF DEATH: Deep below the surface of the Indian Ocean, near the island of Sumatra, two portions of the Earth's crust which had been pushing against each other for the past milennia, one plate, actually the India Plate, gave way along a 1,000 mile faultline, creating a huge fissure in the sea floor as it subducted beneath the pressing Burma Plate, suddenly displacing trillions of tons of water, and causing powerful shock waves in every direction, waves that would introduce untold death and destruction to 14 countries within the coming minutes and hours, causing between 230,000 and 280,000 deaths and unimaginable destruction of property. It was December 26th, 2004. Less than 7 years later, a 8.9 earthquake in Japan set another group of Tsunami waves in motion which caused the loss of 5,000 lives and billions of dollars in losses, despite Japan's awareness of the threat. This episode covers the stories of the 2004 and 2011 Tsunamis, as well as giving us the science of how Tsunamis are created. In Part II, TSUNAMI! (PT II) THE WHALE AND THE THUNDERBIRD , we'll look closely at the Pacific Northwest, which many scientists now agree is overdue for a major quake and Tsunami, and explore everything from old Indian Legends regarding the 1700 Tsunami, the threat to the Pacific Coast of the US, and what is being done now to protect lives in that region.

UNSUNG HEROES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (PT I): WASHINGTON'S SPIES
3454
Unsung Heroes of the American Revolution (Pt 1): The Culper Spy Ring, Nathan Hale, and others: Few people leaving the Banana Republic Store at 66th and 3rd st Manhattan, NY, stop to notice the plaque on the outside wall that mentions the spot less than 100 yards away where courageous young Nathan Hale spoke his famous last words “I regret that have but one life to give for my country’- before being hung from a tree by his British captors. And many probably have no idea how and why those words stirred General Washington’s heart so profoundly when he heard them. And Lady Gaga probably had no idea that her Rivington Street Rebels derived their name from Washington’s greatest spy- James Rivington- or the Beastie Boys, for that matter, when they chose a picture of Manhattan’s Rivington Street for the cover of their album ,Paul’s Boutique. Or the people leaving the Burger King at the intersection of Gregory Ave. and River Dr. in Passaic NJ who drop trash near the forlorn historical marker located on a small concrete pad right there near a utility pole in the parking lot…the sign that just begins to note the incredible accomplishments of a one-time British Lord, William Alexander –better known , and loved, by his Continental Troops as Lord Sterling. Although it says much more, these few words say it all: “American Patriot, Friend of George Washington”. The American Revolution stretched for eight years, from 1775 to 1783, during which time Commander in Chief George Washington had to depend on his network of spies and most trusted soldiers to stay one step ahead of the noose. The AMC series TURN, based on Alexander Rose's book "Washington's Spies", gives a highly fictionalized account of the actions of Washington's greatest spy ring- The Culper Ring. This is the real story of the courageous men and women who risked and sometimes suffered hanging, beginning with Nathan Hale. While Part I focusses mainly on the Culper Spy Ring,, Part Two will provide many rarely told stories about the unsung heroes who risked everything for the cause of liberty, including the slave spy James Armistead Lafayette, Margaret Corbin, Molly Pitcher, Francis Marion , aka The Swamp Fox, and many others.&nbsp; George Washington's Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution (New York: Penguin, 2013), 105-108.

THE COMMANDO RAID ON ST. NAZAIRE: THE MOST DARING RAID OF WWII
3628
"The Commando Raid on St. Nazaire: the Most Daring Raid of WWII":<br><br>The St. Nazaire Raid, also known as Operation Chariot, was a British Amphibious attack on the heavily defended Normandie drydock at St. Nazaire on March 26th, 1942. The objective of the raid was to destroy the drydock in German-held St. Nazaire, thus denying an Atlantic repair port to the new and powerful German battleship Tirpitz, which by itself was capable of winning the battle for the North Atlantic and cutting off England from much needed supplies. A joint operation involving over 200 British Commandos supported by Naval forces and RAF, the raid, costly in human lives, was the most decorated single action in British WWII naval history. #WWII #Commandos #TheGreatestRaidofAll #StNazaire #Podcast #HistoryPodcast&nbsp; .

WHEN KNIGHTHOOD STOOD FOR COURAGE, HONOR, AND HUMILITY
4833
"When Knighthood Stood For Courage, Honor, and Humility":<br><br>When David Bowie turned down the Queen's offer of Knighthood, society recoiled in shock when he refused it, saying that it really should go to heroes. Many in England agreed, arguing that heroes like 95 year old Johnny Johnson, the last survivor of Englands famed DamBuster squadron, and a true hero, should not be overlooked for knighthood in the way that he was. And they are right. There was a day, in years past, when Knighthood carried a code of valor, and meant something, when names like Richard the Lionheart, Bertrand de Gueslin, Joan of Arc, and Roberto Valletta, were spoken of as true heroes....men and women who showed incredible courage under impossible circumstances. &nbsp; Music: Mattia Cupelli (Royalty Free) Mattia Cupelli: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MattiaCupell...

TOM HORN: THE TRUE STORY OF A WESTERN LEGEND
3671
"Tom Horn: The True Story of a Western Legend": He was the man who Geronimo trusted and respected enough to arrange his surrender to Gatewood and Miles. He was there when Ed Schefflin discovered a rich load of gold and gave Tombstone its name. In his life he was a scout and interpreter for the US Cavalry, a Pinkerton Detective, a Sheriff, a Rancher, and a bounty hunter for the Wyoming Cattleman's Association. As a bounty hunter, he was a man crime deterrent against rustlers, but in 1901 his kill for hire work made him a perfect foil for a set-up, and he was framed for the killing of a 14 year old boy. This is his story, along with the story of the American West in its heyday. &nbsp;<br><br><br><br><br><br>

The Battle of Guadalcanal-an air, land, and sea battle fought in the Pacific between August 7th and February 9th of 1942, was the first major offensive of WWII that tested American land forces vs. the Japanaese Imperial Army. It was a hard, brutal conflict for the 15,000 US Marines and 20,000 Japanese that were sent there, fought in an unforgiving climate of hot jungle, crocodile-infested rivers, and coral ridges- all teeming with malaria-carrying mosquitos and the stench of death.

This episode is dedicated to all the courageous soldiers and sailors who gave their lives for freedom. (#THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY) #WWII #Navy #Enterprise #Yorktown #History #Midway<br><br>By May of 1942 Germany had occupied Europe and was attempting to bomb England into submission. Japan had attacked the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor just months before and had sacked the Phillipines , brutally killing over 10,000 surrendered soldiers and civilians. With half of the United States fleet damaged or sunk, Japan controlled the Pacific. Knowing that the US needed to keep a base at the tiny island of Midway, Yamamoto made plans to attack it, knowing the weakened US Fleet would have to respond, and in so doing, Yamamoto, with many more ships and superior aircraft, would destroy them. But Admiral Nimitz, planning the American response, had his own surprise planned for Yamamoto. Before 1942, naval warfare was fought by battleships and submarines. The Coral Sea and Midway battles, pitting carrier fleet against carrier fleet, proved beyond the shadow of doubt the power, range, and effectiveness of the aircraft carrier, and changed naval warfare and warfare forever.<br><br>Get Your Copy of Never Call Me A Hero at Amazon: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Never-Call-Hero-Legendary-Dive-Bomber/dp/0062692054/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1497624969&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=never+call+me+a+hero">&nbsp;https://www.amazon.com/Never-Call-Hero-Legendary-Dive-Bomber/dp/0062692054/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1497624969&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=never+call+me+a+hero<br></a><br> Sources: Point Luck (video), US Navy.

SHARK! (PT.2): US vs.THEM: WHERE THEY ARE, AND HOW TO SURVIVE THEM
3515
Shark attacks have been steadily on the increase for the past few years, and many people believe that this increase is due to federal and state laws limiting catches and protecting predator species like the Great White and the Bull Shark. Environmentalists are fighting against nets that protect swimmers but catch marine life and fighting any efforts to cull certain shark populations, going so far as to say that with 5 billion humans alive, and only 5,000 Great Whites, we can afford to loose a few more human lives. Two opposing groups have formed- those who want to save human lives and those who want to save the sharks - hence the title "US vs. THEM". <br><br>Demonstration Against Shark Nets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osPVC9q1gVk Australia Culling Video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5ZDHGXCMn8 Debate defending sharks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP5Z5mpQMl4 Great Advice for Florida Beaches: http://www.florida-beach-lifestyle.com/shark-facts.html Lots of sharks in FL Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8k3fK-fr3I Daily News Video: http://video.dailynews.com/?ndn.trackingGroup=92461&amp;ndn.siteSection=ocregister&amp;ndn.videoId=32345298 Track Tagged Sharks All Over the World Here: http://www.trackingsharks.com/track-sharks/ All the Laws Put Into Place to protect Sharks: http://www.sharksavers.org/en/our-programs/shark-sanctuaries/learn-more/laws-protecting-sharks FDA Mercury level dangers : https://www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/ac/02/briefing/3872_Stake%2062.pdf SHARK ATTACK DATA BY COUNTRY: http://www.sharkattackdata.com/gsaf Shark Attack data US: http://www.sharkattackdata.com/gsaf/place/united_states_of_america ISAF File- All Kinds of Data File maintained by Florida museum of Natural History https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/fish/isaf/contributing-factors/species-implicated-attacks/ How To Survive a Shark Attack: <a href="http://www.wikihow.com/Survive-a-Shark-Attack">http://www.wikihow.com/Survive-a-Shark-Attack<br></a><br>Music: Mattia Cupelli ONLY THIS TRACK IS FREE NOT ALL ON MY CHANNEL.

URBAN LEGENDS V: FREE CABLE TV? MR. ROGERS A NAVY SEAL? & OTHER URBAN LEGENDS
2313
Those crazy, often twisted stories you hear from your friends about things they will swear are true, plus other stuff. Our line-up: 1. Free Cable TV? 2. The Flat Tire 3. The Express Train To Hell 4. Mr. Rogers- A Navy Seal? 5. Julia Child- A Daring OSS Agent in WWII? 6. Topless Woman in Disney’s Animated Movie “The Rescuers”? 7. Shapeshifter Account 8. Dog Suicide Bridge 9. Nancy Reagans Letter to Hinkley 10. A Well Planned Retirement 11. The Clinton Body Count Legend. Editor's Note. There are no facts here, only legend. And we make this clear throughout. Many times. More than 5 times, I believe. It is not meant to be political or hateful. But apparently some people are still offended by the mere suggestion that this strong and vibrant political family may have ever been involved in anything less than pure. Its very possible that this innocent married couple has never done anything wrong or unseemly since they entered politics in Arkansas. Yet the legends continue to swirl around them. We know this is unfair, yet we didn't create the legend. So if you don't want to know what the legend about the Clinton body count says, or you think it might make you angry and want to strike out at us, simply skip this portion. If it offends you, don't write a bad review that hurts the entire show. 12.

BLACKBEARD: THE MAN & THE MYTH: 2017
2694
The story continues to live on that Blackbeard, also known as Edward Thatch, or Teach, was from Bristol England, had 14 wives, one of whom was named Mary Ormond, that the men he killed were many, that he had left buried treasure from Nova Scotia to Texas, had homes or hideouts all up and down the East coast, and that most of his buccaneers were caught or hung. Thanks to the efforts of author Kevin Duffus and his research team, who gave us the book "The Last Days of Blackbeard the Pirate", we can finally see behind the veil of legend that has surrounded the infamous pirate for over 300 years. #Blackbeard #Pirate #outerbanks Subscribe Free and Review at iTunes Here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/1001-heroes-legends-histories-mysteries/id956154836?mt=2 Facebook: www.facebook.com/1001Heroes Twitter: @1001Podcast Enjoy our three 1001 Stories Network Shows here: www 1001storiesnetwork.com<br><br><br>

ASTRONAUTS & ALIENS: WE ARE NEVER ALONE (#UFO)
3418
There was a two minute transmission silence on July 21st, 1969, just before Neil Armstrong stepped off the Lunar Mudule onto the surface of the moon. A HAM radio operator later claimed he had been able to capture what really transpired during those two minutes, when Armstrong reported the presence of two alien craft positioned on the top rim of a crater nearby, watching their every move. In this episode we seek insight from the men who have explored the far reaches of space in order to answer the question "Do aliens and alien craft exist" and has there been a wholesale cover-up of information? We will leave it up to you to decide.

THE KATYN FOREST MASSACRE (PT 2)(#KATYN)
3405
In 1940, the Soviet Secret Police (NKVD) took the tens of thousands of Polish political prisoners and surrendered Polish officers they had rounded up and put in camps, and executed them all within a period of days, one by one, men and women, dumping their bodies into deep ditches. When the war crimes were discovered, the Russians blamed it on Germany, and kep the lie alive for over 60 years, while they subjugated the Polish people, taking away their culture and their country. Part two is the story of the people and the events that finally forced the Russians to tell the truth and face what they had done. What Stalin and the Soviet NKVD did to Poland is today considered one of the worst acts of genocide in history. #KATYN Source : www.cia.org Source: The Katyn Forest Massacre : hearings before the Select Committee to Conduct an Investigation of the Facts, Evidence and Circumstances of the Katyn Forest Massacre, Eighty-second Congress, first[-second] session, on investigation of the murder of thousands of Polish officers in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk, Russia .. by United States.

THE KATYN FOREST MASSACRE (PT. 1)
3793
On April 10th, 1940, over 20,000 Polish civilians and captured Polish officers were driven from their Soviet Red Army internment camps and driven to a remote spot in the Katyn Forest where they were executed one by one with a bullet to the back of the head. They were lawyers, professors, clergymen, writers, poets, journalists, officers of the Polish Army, business owners-men and women whose only crime was that were successful and they loved their country. The 8% who were Jews were already marked for death. They were all considered potential spoilers of Stalin's new soviet regime, which would convert Poland to socialism and keep it crushed in its iron grip for another 60 years, surpressing every part of Polish culture. In addition to this act being of one the most heinous war crimes in history, the Soviets attempted to cover up the truth of this mass genocide by blaming the Germans, and with Allied help, were able to accomplish this. Part one deals with the Nazi and Soviet invasion of Poland and the subsequent genocide. Part two next week deals with the cover-up, the German massacre at Hatyn (Katyn's namesake), and the mysterious crash of a Soviet Tu-154 airliner which was carrying the President of Poland and his wife, along with 94 other passengers which included, among others, families of the victims of Katyn, to a special service to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Massacreanniversary of the Katyn Forest . the Massacre. the plane crashed killing all on board. #katyn Sources: Katyn: Slaughter and Silence VIDEO (audio referenced here for education purposes) Song: Fall Artist: Ross Bugden Song link: https://youtu.be/TyJgO7zgG9I ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Follow PaponeMusic: Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/PaponeMusic Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/PaponeMusic Twitter: https://twitter.com/PaponeMusic Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/PaponeMusic Follow Ross Bugden: Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKG...

THE SHAG HARBOR UFO INCIDENT

On the night of October 4th, 1967, at about 11:20pm, it was reported that something had crashed into the waters of Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia. Multiple witnesses reported hearing a whistling sound and then a boom as the flying object approached the waters about 1/2 mile offshore, floating, its lights changing color, then disappearing beneath the water and traveling eastward, leaving only a yellow wake of frothy water behind. Was it an alien craft, or a top secret government project? Two men, one of whom was a boy of 12 who witnessed the UFO, never gave up on finding the truth, despite government cover-ups. Their book, "Dark Object" , by Chris Stiles and Don Ledger, is still sought out on Amazon. This story honors their efforts and that of all those who pursue the truth.<br><br><br>

CASABLANCA: THE INCREDIBLE STORY BEHIND THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE
2031
This episode tells the story-behind-the story regarding the making of the movie that many critics claim is the greatest movie ever made, including the fact that the movie was filmed while WWII was raging and that many of the people involved in the making of the movie had escaped from Nazi-dominated Europe and had yet to loose family members in German concentration camps. The cast, the creators, and the story outlining the importance of Casablanca as vital link for escaping refugees, are brought to light here, along with movie gaffs listed at the end. For appropriate ages studying World War II, this episode combined with a viewing of the movie, would make an excellent prelude to studies of 1941-1943. This episode briefly and simply explains France's occupation by Germany and its political division between the Vichy Government (pro-Nazi) and the French Resistance government under DeGaulle, drawing similarities between this division and that of America during their revolution.

TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES
907
It is the kind of story you expect to find in the movies- but this one is taking place in real life. When 21 year-old American soldier Norwood Thomas met 17 year-old Joyce Durrant on the banks of the River Thames in London a few weeks before the JUne 6, 1944 D-Day Invasion, neither had any idea they would be reunited by a Skype conversation 71 years later. Norwood was attached to the 101st Airborne division, an elite group of paratroopers whose mission it was to make a jump behind German lines during the Invasion of Normandy, not knowing if the Allies would be able to break through the German's strong coastal defenses or not. Prior to the mission, training in England, he met Joyce Durrant. The winds of war were to separate the two, each of whom married and raised a family, she in Australia, and he in Virginia. Fate wasn't finished with them yet, however, and an old love was about to be given a second chance. This story isn't finished--you can follow by searching&nbsp; "Norwood Thomas + Joyce Morris" + "update"- to see how they are getting along.

THE NAZI GOLD TRAIN
2051
For years the legend of a missing Nazi train loaded with stolen treasure consisting of everything from gold bullion to the priceless Russian Amber Room have circulated in southwestern Poland. In August of 2015 two men, one Polish, and one German, both treasure hunters with advanced geo imaging equipment, approached the Polish authorities claiming that they had located a buried Nazi armored train 80 feet below the surface of the earth in a small town near the German border. The images, which are available to a google search, do tend to show the tops of the armored pillbox style gun mounts that sat atop the armored trains, which the Germans used to transport weapons and treasure. The Polish authorities assigned a team of scientists to evaluate the find and they reported back at a press conference in December. This is the story of the Nazi train, which involves two treasure hunters, a deathbed confession, a castle which provided a station for Hitler's underground railway, and a missing treasure worth billions.<br><br><br>

BLOOD BROTHERS: THE TRUE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE JOHN WAYNE WESTERN "THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER"
2333
&nbsp;"Blood Brothers: The True Story That Inspired the John Wayne Movie "The Sons of Katie Elder". On the evening of January 19th, 1889, two wagons and a buggy slowly crossed Dry Creek, two miles east of Graham, Texas. The lead wagon held six prisoners, four of them being the Marlow Brothers, chained together in pairs by manacles attached to their ankles, and a guard named Phlete Martin. The second wagon carried Deputy U.S.Marshall Edward Johnson, three guards, plus spare weapons and ammunition, while four more guards followed behind, two in a buggy, and two on horseback. Suddenly, from the darkness, came s shout saying "Hold Up!", and guard Phlete Martin shouted "Here they are, take all six of the sons of _itches". A wild gunfight followed that left five men dead, an act that was only a part of a long series of tragic events that included misinformation, wrongful persecution, mob attacks, lawsuits, killing, a famous Texas Ranger, a Colorado lawman, and the U,S. Supreme Court. The Marlow Brothers were innocent. A lot of people wanted them dead. Their story inspired the 1965 western "The Sons of Katie Elder", starring John Wayne, which rendered a version in total much different than the real story, which was much more dramatic.

This long-lost American tale tells the true story of two young girls, Abigail and Rebecca Bates, the daughters of a lighthouse keeper in Scituate, Massachusetts, who turn back a British warship during the War of 1812.&nbsp; Early in September, 1814, a British warship was sighted offshore preparing to launch barges toward the lighthouse, barges containing troops bent upon ransacking the town. Simeon Bates, the lighthouse keeper, was away, leaving his wife, two very young boys, and his two daughters, Abigail and Rebecca. They spotted the ship, and knowing their was not enough time to warn the town, got out a fife and drum that they had learned how to play that summer, and, hidden from sight of the ship, started playing "Yankee Doodle", loudly enough that the sound carried across the water to the ship and the barges. The ship had waited until high tide so it could slip over the sand bar and into the harbor, but upon hearing "Yankee Doodle" made the assumption that there were colonial troops present, troops that might have a cannon, and the ship was not within easy range of cannon fire. it was too great a risk to take-and the troops returned to the ship. The origin of the song "Yankee Doodle" is told here. Special thanks to Tim Abbott for his blog www.greensleeves.typepad.com, where we found this story and others.

THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF EDGAR ALLEN POE
2146
"the Mysterious Death of Edgar Allen Poe"-On September 7, 1849, Edgar Allen Poe, at the top of his career, kissed his fiance goodbye at his home in Richmond, VA, and began a business trip to Philadelphia. He then dropped out of sight for a week, he was found in Baltimore on October 3rd, inside a bar-turned-polling place, drunk and disheveled, wearing clothes that did not fit him, and unable to speak clearly. He was rushed to a hospital, where he lingered on the edge of insanity for nearly one week,before dying. Theories as to the cause of his death have abounded for decades. His doctor had ordered him not to drink, fearing that a lesion close to his brain could lead to his death. Others suggested he was forced to drink alcohol at the polling place and was a victim of "cooping", by which innocent bystanders were grabbed off the street and forced to drink, then vote multiple times. Still others suspect a variety of causes, from murder to rabies. Even more mysterious is the fact that until recently, and for 80 years, a cloaked man was seen visiting the original grave of Poe every year on the same date, where he would leave three roses and a half drunk bottle of cognac behind. Will he come back next year? &nbsp; Credits: Monica Gil performs Annabel Lee (YouTube) Christopher Lee performs "The Raven" WBAL-TV Baltimore&nbsp; News Report on "the Poe Toaster"<br><br>May 2018&nbsp; Check out our new E Book Collection at Amazon!&nbsp; (and leave us a kind review)&nbsp; Thanks! <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories">https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories</a>&nbsp;<br><br><br>

THE MIRACLE OF THE SUN & THE THREE SECRETS OF FATIMA
3720
"The Miracle of the Sun and the 3 Secrets of Fatima"- We originally did this story about a year ago, and just came back to it recently knowing that there was more to tell...actually a story within a story, and one that needs telling, in light of the challenges the world and the Catholic Church are facing. The story of The Miracle of The Sun, which is probably the most witnessed religious miracle in history, involves three shepherd children in Portugal who witnessed a series of heavenly apparitions, climaxing in an event witnessed&nbsp; by tens of thousands. The story within is an account of the Three Secrets- prophecies given to the children on July 13, 1917, by an apparition they believed was the Virgin Mary. These prophecies, which contained a vision of hell, the end of world war I and beginning of world war II, and a third that predicted the persecution of Christians and the killing of the Pope. The Third Secret, by the request of a child named Lucia, who was the oldest of the three, was not released by the Catholic Church until the year 2000, causing a stir of controversy that still exists today, as there were some within the Church that have said that what the Church released was not at all what Lucia had written.<br><br>May 2018 &nbsp; Check out our new E Book at Amazon Kindle and leave us a kind review!&nbsp; Thanks <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories">https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Short-Stories-Fireside-Collection-ebook/dp/B07CRW2RZ9/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1525854517&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=kindle+books+1001+classic+short+stories</a>&nbsp;<br><br><br>

THE HUNT FOR THE REAL MOBY DICK (remastered)
2164
"The Hunt For the Real Moby Dick" -In 1839 journalist Jeremiah Reynolds, writing for the New York Knickerbocker Magazine, caught up with the whaling ship "Penguin" off the coast of Chili, and interviewed the first mate, getting the eyewitness account of the hunt for and capture of the whale known as 'Mocha Dick", a 90 foot white whale that had been responsible for attacking and sinking the whaling ship "Essex" , the story of which has been recently released as a Ron Howard movie.&nbsp; Reynolds spends the first 16 minutes of this story introducing us to the island of Mocha, off the coast of Chili, in prime whaling waters, as well as the captain and first mate of the whaling ship Penguin. The First Mate, having recently gained notoriety as the man responsible for finally catching the killer white whale, picks up the story around 16:00, and thats where the action begins- so hang on to your seat for this eyewitness account. Whales are thankfully protected today and are no longer needed to keep the lights in the cities of Paris and New York burning, or the mills and factories running. But in the 1800's many a young lad was drawn to the ports of Gloucester and New London for a chance at adventure. Many never returned. WARNING: THIS AUDIO DEPICTS THE KILLING OF A WHALE.

"UNSINKABLE" MOLLY BROWN
2157
"Unsinkable Molly Brown- A Rags To Riches Story of a Titanic Survivor"-Born Margaret Tobin Brown to poor Irish immigrants in Hannibal Missouri in 1867, "Maggie" Brown worked stripping tobacco leaves to support her family until the age of 18, when she moved with her sister to Leadville, Colorado to help establish a blacksmith shop. There she met James Joseph (J.J.) Brown, a miner who was also a son of Irish immigrants. Brown strucj it rich when he figured a way to extract silver from the mine's leavings and soon became one of the wealthiest men in the country. They moved to Denver and built a mansion, complete with all the trappings, but when Maggie went through all the motions required to claim her place in society, Denver wanted no part of this nouveau rich, or so the story goes. Determined to correct her lack of education and polish, she read all the best books, hired tutors, and toured Europe several times, becoming proficient in several languages, establishing a reputation as a witty raconteur, and becoming&nbsp; friends with the Vanderbilts, Whitneys, and Astors, whom she met on her tours. It was on one such tour, headed home to Denver wit loads of crates filled with valuables intended for the Denver Museum, that Maggie boarded the Titanic on her maiden voyage from Cherbourg to New York. Fate intervened, and the Titanic sunk after hitting an iceburg, killing more than one thousand persons, and Maggie, through her bravery and efforts to help the survivors, was to become a national symbol. In subsequent years, through her efforts, she became a tireless advocate for those in need, from the battlefields of France to Women's Suffrage movements in America. A stageplay and movie were created in the name that she had never actually used- "Molly" Brown.

"The Silent Witness at Appomattox"- This episode tells the little known story of the McLean family's unwilling participation at both ends of the Civil War, beginning with their Northern Virginia farmhouse being bombarded at the Battle of Bull Run in 1861, prompting them to move. They choose to move to safer climes 120 miles south in the quiet village of Appomattox Courthouse, where one of the last battles of the Civil War takes place, and where their house, by pure coincidence, is used as the site for the signing of the surrender.

BARON VON STEUBEN: THE MAN WHO SAVED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
1992
"Baron Von Steuben: The Man Who Saved The American Revolution"- In the bleak winter of 1777 the American Continental Army was in miserable condition. The enemy had scored decisiove victories in New York and at Brandywine and was warmly ensconsced in Philadelphia while Washington's beleagured troops, 10,000 of them, lacked food, clothing, and arms in their bleak encampment at Valley Forge. General Washington knew his troops must be trained and morale built in time for a springtime campaign, and he placed his trust in Baron Von Steuben, a brilliant Prussian officer that Ben Franklin, on assignment in France, had recruited for exactly that reason. One man, with no English speaking skills, two assistant translators, and an Italian greyhound named Azor, was going to shoulder the responsibility for training Washington's troops in three short months. The results were incredible, considering the challenge. &nbsp;<br><br><br>

"Australia's Walers- A Horse Story You'll Never Forget"- The incredible story of a living piece of Australian history-the Waler Horse-and its remarkable journey from a hardy stock horse to a legendary war horse with no equals. The story of the Waler might just as well be the story of Australia. As recently as 2013, thousands of these magnificent horses were destroyed near Tempe Australia, by land management. Culling is often looked upon as a humane answer to a wild herd's outgrowing its only source of water or food. But there is a need to find other solutions. We hope that the story shared here might help to raise knowledge of this legendary breed in order that a better answer to their management may be found. Song by Eric Bogel.
