    Fourth of July could also bee know as Independence Day. The holiday was started when we adopted the Declaration of Independence and it happened on July 4, 1776. This is one of the major holidays for our country because it was when the Unites states of America started. Fireworks are often shot and patriotic songs are sung on this day by people showing their respect and pride. They often have firework displays in the United State major cities such as New York or Boston. Fourth of July is the day we broke free from Great Britain's control and their insane taxes. It was the one of the happiest days of those peoples lives that experienced it.

    ♥ Telegraph ♥
    The telegraph is defined as a system that allows the transmission of code information by signals from a distance. Telegraph systems have used a different way of signaling methods. This term is most often applied to the electrical telegraph development in the 19th century. The earliest forms of the telegraph were smoke and fire signals. In the late 18th century optical telegraphs were invented by Claude Chappe in France and George Murrey in England.

    Funerals are an integral part of death for nearly every society on Earth. In the early twentieth century, for most Protestant churches, funerals were an essential part to the final rites for a deceased person. Most funerals would consist of a pre-burial viewing at a church, relatives house, or a funeral homeRelatives and friends were invited to pay their respects to the deceased, who would be on display in the burial coffin. Funerals would consist hymns and other music, a eulogy given by a preacher or other clergyman, the burial, and a brief ceremony at the grave. Black and other drab colors were worn in mourning for the dead, because it was felt that bright colors would give the impression that one was not sad about the loss of life. Flowers and sometimes other presents, including monetary gifts, were given to the deceased's family as a showing of respect for the dead and hospitality toward the family who lost a member. Most funerals were religious rites, but even in secular ceremonies, all of the attention was on paying respect to the dead and the family. There were many superstitions and customs in the funeral rites of the early 1900's and nearly all have been passed on to modern times. A modern funeral is very similar to the ceremonies in Cold Sassy, with the exception of Rucker Blakeslee.

    Hairstyles of the 1800's {11111111111111.jpg}
    Hairstyles way back from the 1800's were not all that you would think. They really werent too elaborate, actually they were quite simple. The women wore dresses that were really sleek, so the hair was not a huge deal. The usually had their hair put up right on the top of their head, others wore braids or buns. Either way, they rarely ever wore their hair down, and when they did it was generally to sleep. The biggest hairstyle though, seemed to be lots and lots of curls. The men were really quite the same they wore nice suits and the more formal look was to slick it back using hair grease, or to part it down the middle or to the side, also using hair grease.

    late 1800's {c003.jpg}{c003.jpg}
    In the early years the land was broken using horse and plow. The types of crops that were most common were wheat, oats, barley, flax, peas, canola, lentils and chickpeas. The types of machines were things like a hayrack, which was either a board and wagon or a flat bed with spokes to hold it together. The binder which depending on what you could afford was either a huge machine or a large kind of wagon pulled by horses. Some other things were sheaves, which are grain binded together with, twine and stookes, which were sheaves, stacked up in large piles. Threshing consisted of stookes cut up and separated so that you can get the grain and straw. Another tool was the sickle which was a long curved blade attached to a long handle and used for cutting crops. Back then the tilling methods that used in farming was harrows, discs or plows. In farming they had things called building bees, which were when groups of people got together to build buildings and other things on the farm. For weed control they used herbicides and for pest control they used pesticides.

    There were two specific injunctions of the Jim Crowe Laws for the state of Georgia: "All persons licensed to conduct a restaurant shall serve either white people exclusively or colored people exclusively or colored people exclusively and shall not sell to the two races within the same room or serve the two races anywhere under the same license." The other states it unlawful for any amateur white baseball team to play on any vacant lot or baseball diamond within two blocks of playground devoted to the negro race. The same goes for a black baseball team playing near a white playground.
    The Jim Crow Laws relate to Cold Sassy Tree, because the Tweedys have black people that work for them. Queenie and Loomis aren't treated like slaves, but rather, part of the family. They still have to go to a seperate church and ride a different train, though. This segregation is due to the Jim Crowe Laws of the time.
