This is my grandfather's paperwork with the Merchant Marines in 1920. He was with them for a short while and also in Haiti. This money from Haiti has one fascinating thing on it, it was printed in the USA.
My name is Jack Stanley, I have studied history for many years. This blog is about history in a more raw view, not over done. I often use original materials to bring a historic event or story to life or an interview I may have done with the person mentioned. If you cook a vegetable too long it loses much. The same can be said of many histories. They are the history of the history written before it. Over done history. THIS IS HISTORY IN THE RAW. Comments send to firstname.lastname@example.org
