The Battle of Suomenlinna (also known as the Battle of Viapori or the Bombardment of Sweaborg) was fought on 7-8 August 1855 between Russian defenders and a joint British/French fleet. It was a part of the Crimean War. British and French naval forces consisting of 77 ships arrayed for the...

18th-19th centuries: Bazookas, Rockets, Comets and Destroyed Cities

  • 1,549
  • 27
What followed was chaos and confusion among the British infantry. Besides killing and wounding a large number of men, the rockets also set fire to the British ammunition dumps, resulting in one of the worst ever defeats of the British Army in India. The British soldiers who had never seen...

Renaissance Cannons: Mysterious and Misunderstood

  • 2,554
  • 36
The very first cannons of the Middle Ages were breech loaded, with gunpowder and shot contained in pots dropped at the back of the barrel, but the poor seals made them dangerous, and they wore quickly and could not be scaled to larger weapons. The main advantage of breech-loading is a reduction...

Star Fort: Zachary Taylor, Key West FL

  • 636
  • 1
Construction of the fort began in 1845 as part of a mid-19th century plan to defend the southeast coast through a series of forts after the War of 1812. In 1898, the fort was reduced down to the second floor and Battery Osceola was added to the south casemate. The battery consisted of two 12...

200 years of Hell: America and the World

  • 2,595

While there does seem to be a cause and effect between the comets and changes in the landscape and possibly causing other issues such as illness, etc. (like the plagues in Egypt), it made me wonder, what has happened in our lifetime that can be contributed to comets. I had no idea that comets...

1874: USS Alarm - what was it?

  • 1,859
  • 17
A spar torpedo consists of a bomb on a long pole or spar, carried by a small, fast, low-lying boat. Under the cover of night or fog the torpedo boat stealthily approaches an enemy ship and detonates the bomb close to the vulnerable underwater hull. This may sound simple enough in theory, but...

Electric Machine Guns, Coilguns and Death Ray Guns of Yesteryear

  • 2,284
  • 11
The first successful machine-gun designs were developed in the mid-19th century. The key characteristic of modern machine guns, their relatively high rate of fire and more importantly mechanical loading, first appeared in the Model 1862 Gatling gun, which was adopted by the United States Navy...

18th & 19th centuries: artificial Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tsunamis

  • 2,870
  • 13
Isn't it interesting that back in 1750 (probably way earlier than that) people knew what needed to be done to cause an artificial earthquake. It definitely appears that they also knew how to cause a tsunami. Google Ngram did not disappoint. I picked a few book excerpts to demonstrate the content...

Mud from the sky, and water from nowhere

  • 3,145
  • 20
Now, the Blood Rain, Mud Rain and the Dust of the Regular Winds are not seemingly related to the regular floods. At the same time, there could be a lot more in common than meets the eye. I ran onto this interesting publication dated with 1850. The mere fact that people were concerned with such...

The Wrath of the Gods: GeoWeapons vs Mud Flood

  • 6,485
  • 27
It's been mentioned in various posts here and there, but I do not think we have a dedicated thread for this "liquefied dirt" phenomena yet. We are yet to approach any sort of understanding of our Mud Flood related issues where buildings ended up buried in the dirt. What if some advanced weapon...

The Next Reset

  • 18,844
  • 143
If the goal (written in stone) is to 'maintain humanity under 500 million" then why bother letting us know we're all gonna die? Could it be that there are some who possess original ancient documents of survivors of previous cataclysms which depict how difficult it will be to even have 500...

Questionable Alexander the Great Narrative

The Battle of Gaugamela, was the decisive battle of Alexander the Great's invasion of the Persian Achaemenid Empire. In 331 BC Alexander's army of the Hellenic League met the Persian army of Darius III near Gaugamela, close to the modern city of Dohuk in Iraqi Kurdistan. Though heavily...

World War II: The Inconvenient Questions

  • 6,177
  • 38
By June 1941, the Red Army of the USSR was an impressive and formidable force that could stop any army of then-Europe if it were really preparing for defense . There is a logical assumption - that the USSR was preparing not for defense, but for something completely different. What exactly? I...

1530s Iceland: Reykjahlíð vs. Saxa and Scalholdin. Vanished cities?

  • 6,100
  • 27
I think Scalholdin, and Saxa, were annihilated by some force which was not supposed to exist around 1539. Yet, we might have enough evidence that such force did exist. If it was a natural force similar to asteroids, there would be no reason to hide it from us. Yet, the reality appears to be...

Circular lakes: evidence of the War of Gods?

  • 8,388

Circular lakes sure do look cool, and are normally considered to be admirable creations of nature. Along with circular lakes there are smaller lakes with imperfect round shape. We are provided with multiple reasons for the existence of the said lakes. Those normally are: meteorite craters...

Nuclear Weapons: do they exist or not?

  • 11,230
  • 94
The Emperor Deterrence may have no clothes, but he is still Emperor. Despite his nakedness, this emperor continues to strut about, receiving deference he doesn’t deserve, while endangering the entire world. Nuclear deterrence is an idea that became a potentially lethal ideology, one that remains...

Annihilated African cities, killed population, establishment lies and the Richat Structure Atlantis

  • 21,217
  • 54
This thread is a sort of buildup on the already existing thread: 400 year old Sahara Desert, or why people forgot everything they knew about Africa. Influenced by the recent publicity related to the ancient lost city of Atlantis being located in Africa, I took a hard look at quite a few of the...

Mohenjo-daro was destroyed 450-500 years ago

  • 6,107
  • 29
It appears our archaeologists are hiding our true history on purpose. Unfortunately, there is plenty of evidence to suggest such a notion. This time we are going to look at the allegedly 4,500 year old city of Mohenjo-daro. Of course, this is not its real name. Scientists say that they do not...

What weapon was used to "bomb" WW2 Dresden?

  • 5,900
  • 23
Apparently, one of the common denominators connecting many weird urban/forest fires, and bombings with the main theme of this forum is the lack of sufficient temperature. Time and time again, fierce powerful firestorms destroying hole cities, fail to set as much as a tree on fire. Apart from...

American Civil War: Photographic History

  • 24,356
  • 138
My goal with this post is for others who are interested to possibly look at the photos with no story in your head (obviously you know the story, but I think you know what I mean), read the captions of the official story and let me know if we can make head or tales of what is really going on...
