The Battle of Mactan was started. Magellan & his men first tried to scare the natives off by burning some houses. But the natives surprised them instead by raining a barrage of arrows, however due to the shields and helmets of the Spaniards, they left no permanent damage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When the natives charged to their position, Magellan ordered his men to fire at them using their rifles and crossbows, but for a short period of time. Out of ammunition, they switched to their swords and axes and fought with the captain. At least 10 Spaniards were killed and the others withdrew. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was reported that many of the warriors specifically attacked Magellan. In the struggle, Magellan was wounded in the arm with a spear and in the leg by a sword. Those who stood beside him were easily overpowered and killed, while the others who tried to help him were hacked by spears and swords. With this advantage, Lapu-Lapu's troops finally killed Magellan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Several Magellan's men were also killed in battle, and a number of natives converted to Christianity who had come to their aid were immediately killed by the warriors. Magellan's allies, Rajah Humabon, was said not to have taken part in the battle due to Magellan's order, and he only watched from a distance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The victory of the chief of Mactan, Lapu-Lapu over Ferdinand Magellan", a 19th-century depiction. • #FerdinandMagellan #PartEight

"On #ThisDayinHistory, 1865, two months after the surrender of confederate general Robert E. Lee, Union General Gordon Granger and approximately 1,800 federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to take control of the state and enforce the emancipation proclamation. Granger read orders which declared in part: “the people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the executive of the United States, all slaves are free.” #Juneteenth (short for “june nineteenth”) is a holiday commemorating this day, which marked the effective end of slavery in the United States." Source for the above information: @history FACT ABOUT SLAVERY: In the 1850s, a slave wanting to escape was considered to have a mental disorder called “drapetomania.” The prescribed treatment was whipping or cutting big toes to make running impossible. #womensrights #womenempowerment #strongwomen #strongmen #colonisation #africancolonisation

🕓 1928. #AmeliaEarhart fu la prima donna ad attraversare in aeroplano l' #OceanoAtlantico . Alla straordinaria impresa seguirono il primo volo degli Stati Uniti da costa a costa senza scalo, l'attraversamento del Pacifico da #Oakland a #honolulu nelle #hawaii e la pianificazione del giro del mondo. Fu nel corso di questa complicata impresa che in un'area del #Pacifico nel corso dell'avvicinamento all'isola di #howland che del suo aereo si perse ogni traccia. Sulla scomparsa della Earhart sono sopravvissute a lungo due teorie: quella più accreditata faceva riferimento ad un errore nella valutazione delle distanze con conseguente fine del carburante e il fallito tentativo di ammaraggio da parte dell'aviatrice; la seconda più intrigante ma carica di scetticismi dipingeva la Earhart come spia americana caduta nelle mani dei giapponesi e giustiziata. È di quest'anno la notizia di una nuova analisi condotta dall'Università del #tennessee secondo la quale i resti ritrovati nel 1940 sull'isola di Nikomaroro conciderebbero al 99% con quelli della coraggiosa avventuriera. #CroniStoria #aviazione #unitedstates #Storia #history #StatiUniti #historyfacts #história #worldhistory #Novecento #aviation

Whichever #sideofthefence you’re on...can you watch children being horrifically, dramatically and undoubtedly life-changing-ly ripped from their parents? I could barely get through the news and my news feed today but I knew I HAD to do just that. Burying our head in the sand like ostriches is cowardly and it is vile. #itstimeforchange not tomorrow, not in a week, not when your schedule clears, NOW. If you wouldn’t do it for those children you need to think about that poem we all read in #worldhistory — First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. Scroll to the 👉 for the number to call. It’s five minutes of your time. Do it. And call during business hours because the mail boxes (all of them) appear to be full.

On this day in history, June 19th 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg are executed at Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York; they become the first American civilians to be executed for espionage. By the year 1939, when Julius and Ethel married, both were already active members of the Communist Party in the United States. When Julius became a civilian engineer with the US Army Signal Corps, he and his wife began looking for ways to leak US military secrets to the Soviet Union. When Ethel's brother, a machinist assigned to the Manhattan Project, revealed secrets of the weapon to Ethel and Julius, they got the secrets to Harry Gold, an information courier, who in turn got them to Anatoly Yakovlev, the Soviet Union's vice-consul in New York City. Gold was arrested in May 1950, and the Rosenbergs and Ethel's brother were arrested soon after. They were convicted of espionage, and a sensational and lengthy appeals process ensued. Even though the impartiality of the appeals process was widely​ questioned, and despite worldwide pleas for mercy, the Rosenbergs' conviction was upheld and they were executed. In the decades following their execution, many questioned their innocence, painting their arrest, trial, and execution as the unjust actions of vindictive and bloodthirsty government agents who needed scapegoats. However, with the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the subsequent release of many Soviet reports, their role in handing over atomic secrets was confirmed.

✊🏿HAPPY✊🏽JUNEENTH✊🏾Everyone✊🏼. Juneteenth aka Juneteenth Independence Day aka Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved blacks throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States. Its name is a portmanteau of "June" and "nineteenth", the date of its celebration. ❤️💚🖤❤️💚🖤❤️💚🖤❤️💚🖤❤️💚🖤 #africanamericanhistory #AfricanAmerican #June #june19th #june19th1865 #juneteenth #juneteenthcelebration #abolitionist #ushistory #americanhistory #worldhistory #blackhistory #factsoflife #facts #blackhistoryfacts #heritage #UsHistory101
