Rip Van Winkle VI

<div class='box'><div class='boxtop'><div></div></div><div class='boxcontent' align=JUSTIFY><font color=#000000&><b>In 1766,</b></font> a simple, good-natured fellow, of the name of Rip Van Winkle lived in a little village of great antiquity, founded by some of the Dutch colonists west of the Hudson River in the Catskill Mountains. The Van Winkles had fought gallantly alongside Peter Stuyvesant at the siege of Fort Christina, but Rip himself inherited little of the martial character of his war-like ancestors. For some time this Appalachian region had been a province of Great Britain. On this glorious fall day, it would seem the reign of King George III was untroubled. Still the first trimester of any pregnancy is a matter best keep private by parents of the unborn child, and the birth of a new nation is much the same. They must pray for GodÂ' mercy, and hope against hope, that that theirs is not a violent birth in blood and tears.</div><div class='boxbottom'><div></div></div></div><div class='post-footer'><p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'><span class='post-author vcard'><i> Entry posted by <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Alternate Historian</a> <a href=' comments on Thread Thanksgiving&'><span class='email-post-icon'>&#160;</span></a> <a href=''><img alt='Historians Website' src=''></a> </font></i></span><span class='quick-edit-icon'>&#160;</span></p></div><div class='post-footer'><CITE>&#169; <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Washington Irving</a></font></CITE><br><br></div> <span class='post-footer'> <a href=' comments on Thread Thanksgiving&'><span class='email-post-icon'>&#160;</span></a> Thread: <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Thanksgiving</a></font></span><span class='post-footer'> Source: <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Wikipedia</a></font></span><span class='post-footer'> Labels: <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Rip Van Winkle</a></font>, <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Birth of a Nation</a></font>, <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>America</a></font>, <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>War of Independence</a></font>, <font color=pagetitlebgcolor><a href=>Washington Irving</a></font></span>.

One individual less than happy was the displaced lead singer <a href=>Steve 'H' Hogarth</a>, who had stepped into a difficult situation when Fish had left the band in the late 80s. Whilst H might not have had the artistic genius of Fish, he certainly was a more photogenic character and dynamic performer. Allegedly, he described his ex-band as Market Square Losers, a loose and unconfirmed statement widely reported by members of the fan club Â"the WebÂ".
