According to The New York Times , “the Presbytery of New-York organized a church for the benefit of seamen and their friends, called the Sea and Land Church. " The May 7, 1866 article explained "The organization originally embraced 32 members composed of sailors and those who had been sailors. although on September 29, 1895 The Sun noted “It requires the constant care of three policemen, detailed from the Madison street station, to keep the sidewalk in front of the edifice clear, and the agitators, when compelled to disperse, met on the... ” Relics—old gas lamps, torn hymnals, old timbers, broken furniture—lie in untidy gloom in the old slaves’ gallery…There is no fund for plumbing or for roof leaks, no money for calling in a crew to at least reduce thick powdery accumulations in...
The two steam cutters were fitted out as mini-gunboats to provide the sailing launches with covering fire and pin down the Spanish soldiers firing from the rifle pits along the beach and from the surrounding hills. For this purpose, each of the steam cutters, in addition to its crew of five, carried a sergeant and six Marines to act as sharpshooters. A one-pound Hotchkiss cannon was mounted aboard Marblehead’s steam cutter, while Nashville’s cutter was fitted out with two Colt machine guns. Together, the two cutters provided the operation with significant firepower. Just after dawn on the morning of May 11, 1898, Nashville’s cutter and launch pushed away from the gunboat. Winslow was in command aboard Nashville’s sailing launch. Lieutenant E. A. Anderson of Marblehead, the expedition’s second-in-command, was in charge of the flagship’s sailing launch. Marblehead was the first to open fire upon the Spanish positions on shore. And no sooner had the sound of Marblehead’s opening salvo faded than Nashville commenced firing as well. Again and again the shells found their mark, bursting and sending clouds of stone and mortar into the air, Winslow would later write of the engagement, …until one shot, striking the tottering structure, burst, and brought.
One of the movies I happened upon was The Host, the most recent Stephanie Meyer adaptation, which inexplicably bombed in theaters, despite being marketed to the Twilight fanbase, who’s standards are nowhere near as high as I have to be to get... My first reaction, upon seeing this, was “That looks like shit, there’s no way I would watch it. ” Then, when I was walking away, I had my second reaction. Maybe I should watch it…” My love for bad movies won out over my love for good movies, albeit not by a huge margin, and I wound up leaving with the flick in hand. At around six o’clock, I called one of my friends at work, who was nearing the end of his shift, and asked him if he was in the mood to watch a really shitty movie. ” Not long after, we’d each downed a few shots, and gathered a few beers, and began our cinematic adventure through the mind of one lonely, lonely mormon housewife. Our story begins with a bit of exposition that’s actually quite well done… We’re told about the Earth’s invasion, but we’re shown one of the more important details, that once an alien has taken over a human’s brain, you can tell by their blue eyes. This is an obvious reference to the Aryan race that the Nazis promoted, and on paper, it’s a pretty good reference… Like the Nazis, these aliens are a nihilistic race who believes in the annihilation of any being that they deem lesser than them.
