|1.||war of 1812|
Truly one of the most pointless wars ever fought. This is largely in part due to the Americans claiming the impressment of American sailors into the Royal Navy as their main reason to go to war. Thanks to the communications of the period, it would be months before Americans learned the British Parliament had voted to cease Impressment a day prior to the invocation of the declaration of war.more...
When the treaty of Ghent was signed at the end of 1814, all conquered land was returned to its previous owner, a declaration of status-quo. This meant that the British would be returned the far south of Upper Canada, while the Americans would be returned Fort Niagara, New York, the northern half of the state of Maine, the Northwest Territories, and Fort Astoria (in modern day Oregon).
Although the Americans won no territory immediately after the conflict, for many years the British would cede territory to them, and the threat of the northwest Indians had ended.
According to British documents, officially 1600 British soldiers died in battle. According to American documents, officially 2200 Americans died in combat. However, the militia fighting for both sides had a tendency to keep poor records, the indians known to keep none oncesoever, so combat deaths are likely higher. Moreover, the American military, after a string of disasters early in the war, often delibrately under-reported it's losses, while inconsistences in British dispatches and regimental accounts of casualties may...
This is the Constitution Day of Norway. On may 17th 1814 the Norwegian Constitution was signed at Eidsvoll, Norway. The day is celebrated throughout the country, with mainly children's parades. The children are to be the center of celebration on the constitusional day in Norway, as they are the nation's future. This is in the spirit of poet Henrik Wergeland, who was the one who took the initiative to celebrate this day. The parades usually consist of the children from the local school districts, corps music and "russ" - which is high school grad students who traditionally wear overall outfits in different colors - representing the type of education they have finished - and of course tons of beautiful Norwegian flags! Many consider the uniquest part of the 17th may celebration to be the total absence of military parading. May 17th is also celebrated in Norwegian communities throughout the world. In the evening the children go to bed - exhausted from walking in the parade all day and eating tons of ice- cream, and the graduation students and other grown ups party like hell until morning.
Norwegian National Anthem(1st. verse) sung on May 17 :
"yes we love this country as it rises
rugged, weathered, above the water in the thousands of homes
love, love to think, of our father and mother
and the saga nights sends, dreams to our soil!
yes the saga night that sends, sends dreams to our soil!"
|3.||The Star-Spangled Banner|

It's also the one song when can tell a distinct difference in singing talent between vocal/musical legends who have proven themselves time and again and teen popstars when they sing it at football games or anywhere else.

A woman in the 1800's who started the first all girls school in 1814. Now in Troy, New York, Emma Willard School is a lovely place where girls (who board) have no access to the outside world for nine months of the year and only have the RPI frat houses across the street for guys (but that doesn't even count). The only thing good about the school are the kitchen guys, but they all have girlfriends.
Her parents sent her away to the Emma Willard School so that she could get a proper education surrounded by girls and no guys at all.
