David Jackson was born in about 1790. Little is known about his early life although it is believed he participated in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815.

On 13th February, 1822, William Ashley placed an advertisement in the Missouri Gazette and Public Adviser where he called for 100 enterprising men to "ascend the river Missouri" to take part in the fur collecting business. Those who agreed to join the party included Jackson, Jim Beckwourth, Tom Fitzpatrick, William Sublette, Hugh Glass, James Bridger and Jedediah Smith.

Ashley's company was the first to depend primarily upon trapping the beaver rather than buying them from Native Americans. Ashley did not pay the trappers a fixed wage. Instead, in return for transporting them to the Rocky Mountains, he took a share in the furs they obtained.

On 30th May, 1823, Ashley and his party of 70 men were attacked by 600 Arikaras. Twelve of Ashley's men were killed and the rest were forced to retreat. Jedediah Smith volunteered to contact Andrew Henry and bring back reinforcements. A message was sent back to St Louis and Colonel Henry Leavenworth of the U.S. Sixth Infantry and later 200 soldiers and 700 Sioux allies attacked the Arikara villages.

Jackson remained a mountain man for several years. In 1826 Jackson went into partnership with William Sublette and Jedediah Smith when they purchased the fur business of William Ashley.

Jackson also became involved in the Santa Fe trade and was with the wagon train that led to the death of Jedediah Smith in 1831. He travelled to California and reached San Diego in November, 1831.

David Jackson died in Paris, Tennessee, on 24th December, 1837.

David W. Jackson to Discuss Changing Times: Kansas City’s LGBTQIA History

Kansas City (MO)… On Wednesday, October 11 at 6:30 p.m., the National Archives at Kansas City will host David W. Jackson, author of Changing Times: Almanac and Digest of Kansas City’s LGBTQIA Historyfor a discussion of Kansas City’s lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender history. A free light reception will precede the program at 6:00 p.m.

A question, “Where did the modern day gay rights movement begin?” Did you answer, “New York City, with the Stonewall Riots in 1969?” It actually began in Kansas City, Missouri, three years earlier. Local historian and author, David W. Jackson, will retrace a colorful, yet mostly unknown history of a segment of Kansas City’s minority communities. His newest book, Changing Times: Almanac and Digest of Kansas City’s LGBTQIA History, presents a captivating timeline from 1821 to the present that may give readers a new appreciation for the struggles of countless fellow Kansas Citians over the last 200 years. Jackson’s research over the last decade has culminated in this new 400+ page book that also includes feature articles on singular topics of relevance to the LGBTQIA communities. Perhaps the most popular section of Changing Times, is Jackson’s detailed census of more than 150 LGBTQIA sites in the Kansas City area from the 1930s to today.

The month of October is LGBT History Month as it is celebrated each year to coincide with National Coming Out Day on October 11. The National Archives has begun to identify, describe, and digitize hundreds of items in its holdings on LGBT-related topics. This webpage will provide quick access to digitized items and descriptions of records not yet scanned but available to researchers https://lgbtqarchives.tumblr.com/

Copies of Jackson’s books will be available for purchase and signing. Reservations are requested for this free program by calling 816-268-8010 or emailing [email protected] Requests for ADA accommodations must be submitted five business days prior to events.

The National Archives at Kansas City is home to historical records dating from the 1820s to the 1990s created or received by Federal agencies in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

David Jackson, longtime CBS correspondent, dies at 70

Longtime CBS Radio News correspondent David Jackson died of cancer Thursday at his home in Kula, Hawaii. He was 70.

Jackson reported on many of the important events marked on the timeline of modern history. He was on the ground in Beijing during the Tiananmen Square student protests. He was in Germany for the return of the American hostages from Iran. He was there when a gunman shot Pope John Paul II.

Jackson joined CBS News as a radio newswriter in 1972, becoming a reporter and special correspondent in 1976 and a full correspondent in 1981. Before joining CBS News, he was a radio and TV correspondent with the Marines and served one tour of duty in Vietnam from March 1968 to April 1969.

Covering major events for CBS News ran in his family. His father, Allan Jackson, began his career in World War II and anchored CBS News coverage of the D-Day invasion in 1944. Allan Jackson was also one of the first national radio broadcasters to announce the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

To quote from the letter announcing David Jackson's departure from CBS in 1999, "It's not enough to just let David say goodnight. He helped CBS News deliver the best broadcast journalism in the world."

Labour Union Strike and Better Wages

Also occurring in 1915, Jackson co-organized the first labor union on St. Croix. Advertisements in The Herald in late 1915 state an intent to form a Great Labour Union, for the purpose of regulating the social depression in the island. Jackson serves as president of the Labour Union of St. Croix. The union allowed laborers to use organized protests and discussions for seeking better work conditions and higher wages in place of the physical uprisings of the past. It is said that it became the single most influential organization in the struggle for better conditions on the islands.

The first general strike took place between January 24th to February 26th, 1916. It was a struggle for better conditions for workers on the islands, headed by David Hamilton Jackson and organized by the Labour Union. It was a challenging time, but it ended in victory for the workers. The workday of sunup to sundown was reduced to 9 hours and workers were given a raise from 10-20 cents, to 35 cents per day.

The business sector and government officials on St. Croix considered Jackson a ‘troublemaker’. Amongst the people however, his commitment against strict labor laws that confined free people to work for a few landowners in poor conditions immortalized him as a leader and hero.

'Liberal indoctrination': Donald Trump rails against modern teaching of U.S. history

USA TODAY's augmented reality storytelling takes you inside the San Juan Bautista. The ship carried the first Africans to be enslaved in America. USA TODAY

Corrections and clarifications: The article has been updated to reflect that Wilmington, Del., officials had the Caesar Rodney statue removed.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Democrats and educators of attempting a "liberal indoctrination of America’s youth" through alternative views of the nation's history, while the subjects of those attacks said he is fueling racial divisions in an election year.

"Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character," Trump said during what aides billed as the first "White House Conference on American History."

While Trump called for "patriotic education" and a "pro-American curriculum" in the nation's schools, opponents cast the president as a struggling re-election candidate who is seeking votes by trying to divide people along racial and cultural lines.

Trump focused his attack on education projects devoted to the nation's history of slavery and racial discrimination, analysts pointed out, targets that have been the focus of ire from many pundits on the right.

"Donald Trump's political career has been defined by stoking racism and hatred," said Josh Schwerin of Priorities USA Action, a political action committee that supports Democratic candidates. "This is all about trying to use racism to incite the fringes of his base who he thinks can help him win an election."

Locked in a tight battle for re-election with Democratic challenger Joe Biden, Trump has frequently criticized the violence that has at times sprung from nationwide demonstrations against police brutality and racial discrimination.

In his education speech, Trump attributed street violence in part to schools, claiming that "the left-wing rioting and mayhem are the direct result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools." He also said "the left has launched a vicious and violent assault on law enforcement – the universal symbol of the rule of law in America."

Speaking in the rotunda of the National Archives, near the original of the U.S. Constitution, Trump protested the pulling down of historic statues – many of which depict slaveholders – and the "desecration" of national memorials.

At one point, Trump invoked the current campaign by talking about how officials in Wilmington, Del., removed a statue of Caesar Rodney, a slaveholder and one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Trump attacked Biden, a Wilmington resident, for not speaking out against the dismantling of that statue.

Biden spokesman Andrew Bates said Trump is failing his own test of history in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic crisis, climate change, and "the most compelling call for racial justice in generations."

"He stokes hatred and division rather than bringing this nation together to confront racism," Bates said. "History will not be kind to this president for these failures and more."

Trump noted that Thursday is the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. Yet, he said, nowadays "a radical movement is attempting to demolish this treasured and precious inheritance" via distortions of its history.

Instead, he said, the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution – and the system of government it created – "set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism, and built the most fair, equal and prosperous nation in human history."

Attendees at the first White House Conference on American History loudly applauded Trump's speech, and the meeting appeared to be consist mainly of administration officials and supporters.

Princeton historian Kevin Kruse tweeted: "As near as I can tell, the White House Conference on American History panel was drawn up with no input from professional historical associations, filled mostly with non-historians & culture warriors, and kept so quiet it wasn’t even on the National Archives’ calendar of events."

During his critique, Trump singled out The New York Times' "1619" journalism project and a teaching approach known as Critical Race Theory, both of which emphasize the treatment of people of color.

The "1619 Project" – named for the year in which enslaved people were first brought to North America – was designed "to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative," said The New York Times website.

The term "critical race theory" has many definitions. The Encyclopedia Britannica describes it as "the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of color."

Trump said he would respond by creating a "1776 Commission." Named for the year in which the Declaration of Independence was signed, the commission will work to promote what Trump called "patriotic education."

Critics mocked the idea of "patriotic education" as near totalitarian. Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the former president of Estonia, cited Russia president Vladimir Putin in tweeting: "Putin did the same years ago and now that's what you get in Russia."

Joanne B. Freeman, professor of History and American Studies at Yale University, said Trump wants a whitewash of the American past, but the nation's true history involves "the bad as well as the good."

"The study of history – the sincere, open, and serious study of history in all its complexity – is dangerous and misleading only if you have something to hide," Freeman said. "And it's impossible to understand ourselves as a nation, and to reckon with the roots and implications of our current moment, if we deny the uncomfortable parts of America's past."

I was a latecomer to fiction writing, having spent most of my adult life producing academic papers and reports. After some limited success entering short story competitions, I submitted the first few chapters of a novel to the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger Awards. To my great surprise, the book was not only short-listed but given the Highly Commended accolade, which stimulated the interest of agents and publishers and eventually led to the publication of PARIAH. Since then, I have written several more crime thrillers, including two series set in New York and my birth city of Liverpool. I still have a day job in Liverpool as a university academic, but now live on the Wirral with my wife, two daughters and a British Shorthair cat called Mr Tumnus.

David Edward Jackson

David served in the war of 1812 and soon after, he left home and never returned. He was a mountain man and a trapper at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which is named for him.

David Edward Jackson (1788�) was an American pioneer, explorer, trader, and fur trapper.

He spent his early life west of the Shenandoah Mountains, in what was then part of Virginia and is now in West Virginia: he was born in Randolph County, and his parents, Edward and Elizabeth Jackson, soon moved the family west to Lewis County, on the Cumberland Plateau.

He was one of those who opened the Oregon Trail having explored many connecting valleys in his life as a trapper. By 1826 Jackson bought a majority position in the three year old Rocky Mountain Fur Company, and along with several partners, prospered while the fur bearing beavers remained plentiful which populations began a quick decline ca. 1833, presumably from over trapping.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming is named for him.
