I've seen images quite like this one reposted with unironic captions about how "pathetic" the current generation is considering how hard our forefathers fought to build this world for them, and I always want to tell these people to take a step back and think exactly about why what they just wrote betrays its own point.

[November 2, 1919] New York Tribune - Miss Elizabeth C. Blanding, aged 87, said to be the oldest actively engaged school teacher in America, who has just started teaching her seventy-first class of primary grade children at a private school at Attleboro, Massachusetts

This means she started teaching in 1848. She was teaching before the American Civil War, and at age 16 at that. She lived for another year and died on November 18, 1920, so she was really pushing it.

[September 21, 1919] 84 Years Old Civil War Veteran of Philadelphia, Wearing at the Fifty-third G. A. R. Reunion at Columbus, Ohio, the Exact Equipment with which He Marched Away to the War with the 71st Pennsylvania Regiment in 1861

cmtwtul3cvn31.jpg?width=336&auto=webp&s=

 

 

Fun little anecdote (about myself at least): I used to believe that someone who was a young whippersnapper in 1861 could have conceivably fought in both the Civil War and WWI— they'd be a grizzled middle-aged veteran when they went to the trenches of France, at least. 

But then I actually did the math and realized that someone who was about 20 years old in 1861 could have conceivably died of old age by the time WWI started. They weren't actually as close in time as I imagined. I just didn't realize this for the longest time because the American public education system sucks a fat one. It goes through events so fast and depersonalizes them all. There are many courses where we literally went from the Civil War and Reconstruction (1861-1877) and immediately jumped to World War I and the Progressive Age— in high school. By that point, we ought to be learning about the intricacies of this period in history, but we were still stuck with literal 5th-grade lessons. The only difference being we had more busywork to do. i.e. in 5th grade, you'd read about the Civil War, Progressive Age, and World War I and maybe do a short quiz and memorize a few names (e.g. Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and whatnot) for a daily assignment of about 10 questions. In 10th grade, you read the exact same material, memorize the exact same names, except now across a 100-question test and incredibly overwrought short answer assignments. 

 

How I became so interested in history through this, I don't know.

 

But images like this one are very helpful for proving my point.

[September 12, 1919] As an army political agent, Adolf Hitler was sent to report on an emerging far-right group, the German Workers' Party (later renamed the Nazi Party). Finding he agreed with their nationalist, anti-Semitic beliefs, he joins the obscure group as its seventh member.

The Slonk Hill man from the Iron Age lived 2400 years ago. Mystery surrounds his life and death. He was buried laid in a thick bed of mussel shells which was unusual.
