    To make sure: Alarm Clock oldsoul





    These are nice Alarm Clock, but why not start with the ancestors that are credited with starting Decoration Day, which morphed into Memorial Day:


    Decoration Day

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Decoration Day is the former name of Memorial Day in the United States. Memorial Day began as "Decoration Day" in the immediate aftermath of the American Civil War. It was a tradition initiated by former slaves to celebrate emancipation and commemorate those who died to end slavery in the United States. The term may also refer to:
    This information was shared yesterday on the DesteeLive broadcast by bro. oldsoul's teachings on Malcolm X's: By Any Means Necessary.
    Just curious Alarm Clock, did you by any chance here the broadcast, it was also played back during the day?



    Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    Honoring Che-cho-ter ["Morning Dew"], the Black Seminole wife of the Seminole War Chief, Osceola, over whom the 2nd Seminole War (also known as the "Negro War") was fought. Osceola got his wife back and the Black Seminoles who fought with him, won their freedom on the battlefield when the U.S. Army sued them for peace, because even though more money was spent fighting the 2nd Seminole (Negro) War than ALL the U.S./Indian wars in history, COMBINED, they couldn't beat the Black "allies" of the Seminole Nation. 20 years later, Abe Lincoln used their "battlefield freedom" documents as a legal precedent to sign the Emanicipation Proclamation.

    A play by play account of the extremely well-documented 2nd Seminole War (Negro War) can be found here (even though it's NEVER taught in school and an "open" secret):
