LESCHI, A NISQUALLY AMERICAN INDIAN
February 19, 0 - USA
Feb 19, Leschi, a Nisqually American Indian leader from the Puget Sound region, was hanged a mile east of Fort Steilacoom. On June 10, 1857, he had been convicted of the murder of Abrams Moses, and was sentenced to hang. Appeals to the Supreme Court delayed the initial hanging. In 2004 seven judges at a Historical Court of Inquiry and Justice unanimously decided that regardless of who shot Moses, â€œThe killing was a legitimate act of war, immune from prosecution.â€ Consequently, Leschi was declared â€œexoneratedâ€ of Abrams Mosesâ€™ murder. In 2011 Richard Kluger authored â€œThe Bitter Waters of Medicine Creek: A Tragic Clash Between White and Native America.â€

I Love You For So Many Reasons
by A Love Quote
"...I love you for that certain smile that cheers me when I'm blue,
I love you for your tender kiss that warms me through and through.
I love you for your gentle hand, your understanding touch,
Your eyes that always seem to say, "I love you very much."
I love you for your faith in me, your sweet and patient ways,
And for the thoughtful things you do so often without praise.
I love you so for all these things and many others, too...
But most of all for what I am whenever I'm with you!...."
by John Adams
"...The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution...."
