Historical Playlist
This playlist represents a theme of youth culture between eras. Each song represents what the youth may have been listening to during the time period and each song has elements of rebellion. Some show an emergence of a new type of music into the industry. For example Purple Haze shows the emergence of Rock into the 1960s and the lyrics "Lately things down seem the same"......"Excuse me while I kiss the sky". Hendrix references Vietnam, Hippy, and the New Left movements with large changes in culture. "Surfin USA" represents the Californian youth with surfing and just not caring in the 60s. With many of counter culture movements arising between the 60s through 80s this is when the the messages of youth rebellion shined through music.

The Anglo Dutch Wars were a series of wars consisting in the 17th and 18th centuries between the Dutch and the English over the trade routes between the colonies. The Dutch held the area of New Netherlands which is the area of modern day New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Connecticut. Conflict arose between the Dutch and English when the colonies in America were being formed as The Navigation Acts were created by the English to force all goods into America to be carried by English ships. This sparked the first of Anglo Wars which resulted in battles only by sea over the trade routes in the Atlantic. The Second and Third were later fought over similar conflict.

These wars are and example of conflict in the colonial states, and how the fight for land was extreme. Eventually the English took over the area of New Netherlands and Claimed it as New York. The well fought efforts between each state as this time shows the resilience and determination between these two nations.

The General Mining Act of 1872 is a United States government law that approves and oversees prospecting and digging for financial minerals, for example, gold, platinum, and silver, on elected open grounds. This law systematized the casual arrangement of obtaining and ensuring mining claims on open land, shaped by miners in California and Nevada from the late 1840s through the 1860s, for example, amid the California Gold Rush. This act affected natives Chinese and other immigrants looking for work in the mining industries and changed the outlook of the incoming immigrants on how they could have economic equality.
Sounds like an important act...what else can you connect it to? -SW

In 1967 Cold War deep into the core of the war, Camp Century was developed in Greenland as a power station with Nuclear Reactors and Nuclear Missile site with large military numbers. The camp was held with intention to gain power Source within the Atlantic during the Cold War. Eisenhower developed this station through influence of Soviet Union Rule among the Cuban Missile Crisis and the scare of Nuclear War. Eisenhower within his presidency enacted several Environmental Acts like the Arctic National Wildlife Range. What is quite ionic is that once abandoned Camp Century was left with reactors in tact and around 60,000 gallons of diesel dumped in the area. Resent researcher believe that this area is still experiencing nuclear reactor decay and this may be one of the main causes of polar ice caps melting and creating a warming of the northern climate. Eisenhower's Cold War advantage may have turned to bite him in a region of legislation that he was attempting to limit.
