“Known for their complex, ­improbable migrations, most monarchs embark on 2,000-mile journeys each fall, from breeding grounds as far north as Canada’s maritime provinces to the Sierra Madre mountains in central Mexico.” http://wapo.st/2rt5vON

    Monarch butterfly migration was off this year and researchers are worried
    Thanksgiving was right around the corner, and a sizable number of one of America's most famous migrants could be seen still sputtering south. Not across the Texas-Mexico border, where most monarch butterflies should be by that time of year.

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings of the National Archives are brimming with hand-written records like this document, the Deposition of John Snyder. This document is the sworn statement of John Snyder regarding the events surrounding the assault of Garrik Hulsecamp by Ezikiel Teel. It comes from a criminal case file which consists of assault and battery charges brought against Ezekiel Teel for his alleged assault of a man by the name of Garrett Hulsecamp on his ship in October of 1790. You can learn more about this case, and see the handwriting up close, by visiting our online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806. We know that last week’s Citizen Archivist Challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue the important work of unlocking history by transcribing and tagging our records! If you haven’t already, get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist) to learn how to start and to find specific missions. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing philadelphia.archives@nara.gov.

On this day in 1832, Édouard Manet was born. ...

On this day in 1832, Édouard Manet was born. The French painter faced a great deal of rejection in his early career, like many of the founding impressionists. The French Academy disliked Manet’s abstracted painting style as well as his disregard for classical tradition. #LOOKSLOWLY at “Young Woman in a Garden.” Note Manet’s penchant for flattened surfaces, bright colors, and gestural brushwork. See the white color of the woman’s glove and scarf? That’s actually the unpainted preparation layer for the canvas! The artist intentionally left this part of the canvas unpainted––a break from artistic tradition that scandalized many about Manet’s paintings. Later, his work became pivotal to the modernist movement. 🎨 Édouard Manet. Young Woman in a Garden (Jeune femme dans un jardin), 1879
