      On this day in 1804, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and the rest of their party headed up the Missouri River on a government-sponsored mission to explore the land that had been acquired in the Louisiana Purchase the year before and find a water route to the Pacific Ocean.
      And so began a multi-year adventure.

      It’s been fifty years today.
       
      On Monday, May 4, 1970 at 12:24 PM Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on unarmed students, killing two protesters and two innocent bystanders and wounding nine.
       
      I put up a Twitter thread about it: https://mobile.twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1257343082611253250

      “The ship was found more than 17,000 feet below the surface, on the floor of the South Pacific Ocean near the Solomon Islands. The USS Hornet is best known for launching the important Doolittle Raid in April of 1942 and its role in winning the Battle of Midway. 
       
      Richard Nowatzki, 95 now, was an 18-year-old gunner on Hornet when enemy planes scored several hits, reports CBS News' Mark Phillips.”

      Hello, compatriots! I am a college student in desperate need of useful sources of information! I have taken upon the task of writing my final project in my composition class on the history of wargaming and tabletop miniatures. Painting miniatures is potentially my biggest hobby, and it seemed like an excellent topic for a paper. I need to do a 12-minute elevator pitch of my paper next Friday, and the paper itself must be 2,500 words and is due at the end of the semester (May 5th).
       
      The issue is, I'm having difficulty finding sources that I can cite. I'd go hunting for books, but I don't have a whole ton of time to wait for shipping. So, I've come to you folks. If there are any sources that you are aware of that will help me in my journey, please post them here. If there are important people I could potentially email and ask questions of, that would be cool, too. I already have some info with W. Britain beginning production of hollow lead toy soldiers and the publication of H.G. Welles' "Little Wars". I'd like to know more about when and how painting miniatures for wargames became a hobby of its own, major changes in the miniature manufacturing industry, key players, where we are today, etc.

      I'm painting Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, and came across an odd situation. On his left side, possibly hanging from his belt, there is an approximately trapezoidal shape that has three tassels hanging from it. I've seen things like it before, being an SCA member and fairly familiar with historical clothing, but I have no idea what it's called or if it serves any use beyond decoration.
       
      I searched Google images, but that was no help. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? For your reference, here is the best picture I could locate of the item:
      Most people seem to paint it the same color as his coat, but I like to be as accurate as I can in my painting and would like more information on this interesting object.
