Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show opens

Hey everyone AwesomeEwok here and today I’m gonna tell you about when Buffalo bill’s Wild West Show opened. William Fredrick Cody, who was a well-known scout for the army and a buffalo hunter for the railroads, started an outdoor extravaganza called the “Wild West, Rocky Mountain, and Prairie Exhibition” for a Fourth of July celebration in North Platte, Nebraska. The show was a big success that he decided to start a circus like pageant celebrating life in the West, and Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show was made,. During the next four years Cody performed his show all around the nation to large crowds.

Audiences loved Cody’s reenactments of frontier events: an attack on a Deadwood stage, a Pony Express rely race, and most exciting of all, the spectacle of Custer’s Last Stand at the Little Big Horn.  Even more popular were the displays of western outdoor skills like rope tricks, bulldogging, and amazing feats of marksmanship. Cody had many stars but one of the most famous ones was Anne Oakley, who was nicknamed Little Sure Shot, who could shoot a cigar out of an assistants mouth.

Cody took his show across the Atlantic to show Europeans. He staged his first international performance at the Earls Court show ground in London on this day in 1887 Queen Victoria herself attended two command showings. After London, Cody and his performers amazed audiences throughout Europe and then became a truly international success. One bronco rider, who stayed with the show until 1907, traveled around the world more than three times and recalled giving a performance in Outer Mongolia.

Though his Wild West show waned in popularity in the 20th century-in part because of competition from thousands of local rodeos that borrowed his idea-Cody remained on the road with the show for 30 years. When the show finally collapsed from financial pressures in 1913, Cody continued to perform in other similar shows until two months before his death in 1917.

Well that’s all on Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, I’m AwesomeEwok and remember to yub nub on.

V-E Day is celebrated

Hey everyone AwesomeEwok here and today I’m gonna tell you about V-E day. In 1945 both Great Britain and the United States celebrate Victory in Europe Day. The allied nations celebrated the defeat of the Nazi war machine. On May 8th German troops throughout Europe finally laid down their arms in a cease fire. while the Germans were trying to leave Russia, more than 13,000 British POWs were released and sent back to Great Britain.

Small battles between the Germans and Soviets would continue until May 9th. The Soviets would lose 600 more soldiers in Silesia before the Germans finally surrendered. V-E day wouldn’t be celebrated until May 9th for Russia. Stalin gave a radio broadcast to all of Russia and said, “The age-long struggle of the Slav nations…has ended in victory. Your courage has defeated the Nazis. The war is over.”

Even though the Germans surrendered, Japan said that they would rather fight till the end instead of surrendering. Well that’s all on V-E day, I’m AwesomeEwok and remember to yub nub on.

Lego Attack on Crate Set

Hey everyone! AwesomeEwok here and today I’m gonna tell you about the Attack on Crate set. So this set is from the Last Jedi movie and it has stuff from the battle on Crate. Now this set is pretty awesome, It has a Crate mining speeder, a turret, and a base. The minifigures this set has is cool too, it includes Poe Damron, two resistance troopers, and two first order snowtroopers. The mining speeder is epic it looks amazing and like it came out of the movie.

Now overall the set is good, the mining speeder is the best part about it and it really is epic. The base and turret are great too, but they should of added more minifigures. Well that’s my post on the Attack on Crate set I’m AwesomeEwok and remember to yub nub on.

The History Behind Star Wars

Hey everyone AwesomeEwok here and today I’m gonna tell you about the history behind Star Wars. Star Wars is a Science fiction space opera that was released on May 4th, 1977. This movie was a Science fiction but was based off of mythology, theology, and our own history. George Lucas based characters off of real people from our history. Like the stormtroopers of the Empire, they were based of of the stormtroopers that defended the Nazi party. The palace on Naboo was based off of Imperial Rome, and the pod race on Tatooine was based off of the Roman chariot races.

The transition of government from a democracy to and Empire even resembled Rome’s transition of government. Ronald Reagan even made a defense plan (Star War) that would use space lasers, similar to the Death Star. The Jedi in the movies are similar to the Knights of Templar who were a Catholic military group. Mostly everything in Star Wars is based on our own history. Well that’s all on the history behind Star Wars, I’m AwesomeEwok and remember to yub nub on!
