  • The Clubertson Guidon
    • When General George Armstrong Custer’s 7th Cavalry Troopers attacked a massive Indian village on June 25th 1876 they carried five guidons into the Battle of The Little Big Horn. Four of the flags are believed to have been recovered by the victorious Indian defenders. The remaining flag was found by a burial party three days after the battle had ceased, under the body of Corporal John Foley. The flag became known as the Culbertson Guidon, named after Sgt. Ferdinand Culbertson who recovered it.
  • The Positive Spirit of Nationalism
    • The history of nationalism is a complex subject which has spawned many theoreticians perhaps the most influential of whom nowadays are Benedict Anderson, Gellner or Hobsbaum, all of whom, particularly the latter, coming from a Marxist perspective, are quite critical of it as a phenomenon. They see in it the germinal springs of the type of chauvinistic patriotism which laid waste to Europe in WWI and gave rise to the inter-war rise of fascism. I recall a passage in Mein Kampf where Hitler laid out his grievances against Czech aspirations for greater autonomy within the confines of the Austro-Hungarian Empire without of course mentioning that the German speaking minority monopolized its higher offices.

Kurosh, as Persian-speakers would call him, has throughout the centuries been regarded by many as the ideal ruler. This universally favorable reputation is a result of Cyrus the Great's remarkable achievements.
