Library of Congress Reading Room

The Library of Congress was established on April 24, 1800.

History.Com

President John Adams approves legislation to appropriate $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for the use of Congress,” thus establishing the Library of Congress. The first books, ordered from London, arrived in 1801 and were stored in the U.S. Capitol, the library’s first home. The first library catalog, dated April 1802, listed 964 volumes and nine maps. Twelve years later, the British army invaded the city of Washington and burned the Capitol, including the then 3,000-volume Library of Congress.

Former president Thomas Jefferson, who advocated the expansion of the library during his two terms in office, responded to the loss by selling his personal library, the largest and finest in the country, to Congress to “recommence” the library. The purchase of Jefferson’s 6,487 volumes was approved in the next year, and a professional librarian, George Watterston, was hired to replace the House clerks in the administration of the library. In 1851, a second major fire at the library destroyed about two-thirds of its 55,000 volumes, including two-thirds of the Thomas Jefferson library. Congress responded quickly and generously to the disaster, and within a few years a majority of the lost books were replaced.

According to Wikipedia, the Library of Congress (LOC) is the research library that officially serves the United States Congress and is the de facto national library of the United States. It is the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States. The Library is housed in three buildings on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.; it also maintains the National Audio-Visual Conservation Center in Culpeper, Virginia. The Library’s functions are overseen by the Librarian of Congress, and its buildings are maintained by the Architect of the Capitol. The Library of Congress has claimed to be the largest library in the world. Its “collections are universal, not limited by subject, format, or national boundary, and include research materials from all parts of the world and in more than 450 languages.”

    The Sri Lankan authorities had detailed information on the bombers right down to names, addresses and the time one of the bad guys visited family. Once the event occurred they went right out and arrested surviving agents but by then…

    Now they say they know there are more bad guys and explosives out there and there may well be more incidents. Who trained these guys, t\he FBI?

    The Mueller report has become the left’s Da Vinci code
    By Rick Hayes – April 22, 2019

    Outside the dark recesses of the fantasy-filled world most leftists reside in, it is accepted as fact that the twenty-two-month-long Mueller investigation did not find any evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia or obstructed justice.

    • Hey Lucille…nice to see you over here.

      Your comment here is right on.

      About AT:

      It’s no wonder they won opinion blog of the year in 2016. I have had personal communications with Thomas Lifson. Love that man! He’s got some great authors over there. He once told me that Clarice Feldman was a national treasure. I know Treepers think the same way about SD. It was through AT that I began corresponding back and forth with Selwyn Duke, another one of my fav bloggers. I stay in touch regularly with Lloyd Marcus, whose voice is sorely needed.

      CTH should certainly win research blog of the year again. No doubt. It should probably win best comment section for a blog award too, don’t ‘ya think? 🙂

      Have a great evening. Monday when I post my weekly response to Rynn69’s letter to Bar and military tribute video, I’ll be lookin’ for some more benches!

      Shalom

          Monica Showalter is writing some fine stuff too. Another lady author who writes for Thomas from time to time that I have appeciated is Fay Voysell. She writes some excellent pieces wherein the spiritual and religious matters are involved.

          In one of my first emails to SD, I told him that Thomas said something to me complimenting SD. That’s a big lift. Thomas is a prolific researcher, so he would recognize another like SD.

          Shalom

    Two brothers formally accused “Empire” star Jussie Smollett of paying them to “stage the attack” against him in a lawsuit filed Tuesday suing the actor’s legal team for defamation, according to reports.

    3) James Holzhauer has won over a million dollars in 14 Jeopardy victories.

    4) Although he has a long road of recovery ahead of him, little Landen the 5 year old boy thrown off of third floor balcony at the Mall of America does not seem to have any brain damage and is making a “miraculous” recovery.

    Prosecutors have charged 24-year-old Emmanuel Aranda with attempted premeditated first-degree murder for the April 12 attack . Does Aranda have another name?

    5) Hilarious Bill Barr meme.

    “Looking Cute”

    6) In honor of Day mentioned by Czarina;

    “There are seven days in the week and SOMEDAY isn’t one of them.” __ Shaquille O’Neal

    8) Mark dice and his Brian Stelter voice overs. (If you haven’t seen it check him out on Twitter).

    9)

    The aftermath of Dan Scavino’s tweet. And the hysterical reaction of liberals when President Trump retweeted Scavino’s tweet.

      The amazing things are that the reporters don’t seem to see anything wrong with being ignorant of the basics of the primary religion in the USA, and that their editors are just as ignorant. Mistakes like these shouldn’t slip through the cracks. I love the one about the “water from Iraq”, by the way!

        Yes, they all did and here is why they quit.

        “To Destroy a People, you must first destroy their roots. How does one sever a people’s roots? Destroys its memory. Deny a people the knowledge of who they are and where they came from”. – Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

        The Declaration of Independence explains why the United States exists and explains our rights come from God. The Left has managed to separate the Declaration of Independence from the US Constitution. The Constitution is a plan of government, a plan limiting government, so there is no mention of God.

          Let’s play word games like the Left does. “All men are created equal and endued with certain inalienable rights'” OK, if we go back and look at the Founders’ writings we see their use of the word ‘Creator’ as another term for God. The Constitution prevented the government from establishing a religion or preventing the free practice of religion so I am not seeing how they could use God in the Constitution without raising some eyebrows so the use of ‘created’ refers to God/Creator indirectly while leaving little doubt as to whom they were referring.

              I’ll throw in Frederic Bastiat’s The Law too.

              You know, with so much great literature, there is no excuse for most people not to know better than they do. But far fewer people read today than when I was a kid.

              When I was a young kid, 9-10 yrs old, I used to go to the Milton Latter Library on St. Charles Street in New Orleans. We lived in the Garden District a few blocks away. Beautiful old antebellum home donated to the city for that purpose many years ago.

              http://old-new-orleans.com/NO_Latter_Library.html

              I would get 8-9 books every week. I even got into reading Homer that young. Loved Jane’s Book of aircraft and checked it out so much, hardly anybody else got to check it out for some time. Grandma would say, “Are you really going to read all those books?” I did.

              My grandmother was a teacher at Isadore Newman School (was and to this day is one of the top schools in the US) and brought us up to read, know and learn good music, even scheduled me for water painting lessons at the Delgado Museum on Bayou St. John. So we were raised with good roots of varying interests.

              I have told kids over the years…learn to read and then you can teach yourself anything else.

              I lament peoples’ lack of reading today. They are married to their gadgets.

              Shalom and bless you!

                  When I was in my youth, I had a friend who would take the ferry from the East Bank to Algiers on the West Bank. Got off one night and got stabbed. Fortunately, not to death. I had a girlfriend who lived in Algiers and I had to drive through the Fischer projects to take her home. West Bank, yeah, not good.

                  Grandma would also take us down to the library by City Hall for Saturday morning readings. It was pretty cool.

                    I took the old GNO two-lane before the CCC or the Chalmette Ferry almost everyday for over 20 years to get to work. Took the old Paris Road to Little Woods, before the 510, when I worked at the Lakefront and the later when I worked my day job at Michoud.

                    Czarina worked a few clients in the old Fischer. I loved the inside joke when Patricia Clarkson received her Emmy, I believe it was, and in her speech said her mother wanted to be there but she had to blow up the Fischer.

                  I had forgotten, but am now remembering you for having lived there.

                  All those places you mention…brings back a lot of memories. Paris Rd, Michoud…many friends who worked there. Do you remember the name Don Fitzwater? Best family friend. Worked black box projects. They moved him to Seattle where he is now, in his early 90s and won some senior Olympic stuff.

                  I remember having to so some runs across the GNO bridge. Wished there would have been a second bridge way back when. Huey P. Long too. Narrow, trains….did 120mph one night on that bridge trying to get away from a truck load of guys who wanted to rumble. Well, a gun on top of my car roof at the next red light ended their want to rumble so they went on down the road.

                  Talking about the Lakefront. Had some good times there. Used to love to go to the Lakefront Airport just to watch stuff fly in and out. That was father and son time for me. My day wanted to be a pilot in the Navy, but contracted TB, so that ended that. Loved eating at Fitzgerald’s on the lake. But H. Katrina wiped all that out.

                  Lot of water under the bridge. Been away from NOLA a long time. Many other journeys were to be embarked on.

                  I thinking I may have connected two dots: Correct me if I’m wrong.

                    We climbed tho old Huey P. Narrow and walked it for a project, the railroad bridge belongs to the city of New Orleans while the roadway (they hung a new, mo betterer and wider one) belongs to the state. Took a 5 ton military truck and trailer over the old bridge once, brought it back over the old GNO – easiest passage I ever had.

Carlos Marcello himself told his people that they were never going to be able to corrupt Dave Treen. But Marcello’s steak house, Nancy’s, was really good.

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

  17. 🙋‍♂️ Everybody.

    First time here. Some of you know me from over at the Treehouse. This seems to be like, complimenting, another Treehouse, but with its own particular flavor.

    I like that.

    Shalom and evening blessings to all.

      • Thank you so much, lovely!

        I will enjoy it here. Some days are so pressed I struggle to squeeze extra things in. I got a break the last few days so was able to spend considerable more time in the Treehouse.

        I knew about Stella and this site, so with a little extra time tonight, thought to check in. Glad I did. Good warm camaraderie here like in the Treehouse.

        Shalom!
