Virgil Earp

Virgil Walter Earp was both deputy U. S. Marshal and Tombstone, Arizona City Marshal when he led his brothers Morgan and Doc Holliday in a confrontation with outlaw Cowboys at the Gunfight at the O. K. Corral on October 26, 1881, they killed Billy Clanton. All three Earp brothers had been the target of repeated death threats made by the Cowboys who were upset by the Earps' interference in their illegal activities. All four lawmen were charged with murder by Ike Clanton. During a month-long preliminary hearing, Judge Wells Spicer exonerated the men, concluding they had been performing their duty, but two months on December 28, friends of the slain outlaws retaliated, ambushing Virgil. They shot him in the back, hitting him with three shotgun rounds, shattering his left arm and leaving him permanently maimed; the Cowboys suspected. His brother Morgan Earp was assassinated in March 1882. Charges against those suspected were dismissed on a technicality. Wyatt Earp, appointed as deputy U. S. Marshal to replace Virgil, concluded he could not rely on civil justice and decided to take matters into his own hands.

Wyatt assembled a federal posse that included their brother Warren Earp and set out on a vendetta to kill those they felt were responsible. Virgil left Tombstone to recuperate from his wounds in California where his parents lived. Virgil married; when he returned, his wife and child had left. He held a variety of other jobs throughout his life, though he worked in law enforcement, his younger brother Wyatt, who spent most of his life as a gambler, became better known as a lawman because of writer Stuart N. Lake's fictionalized 1931 biography Wyatt Earp: Frontier Marshal and portrayals of him in movies and fiction as Old West's "toughest and deadliest gunmen of his day." In 1898, Virgil learned that his first wife Ellen Rysdam and their daughter were living in Oregon and reestablished contact with them. After suffering from pneumonia for six months, Virgil died on October 19, 1905. Virgil Earp was born in Hartford, the second son of Nicholas Earp and Virginia Ann Cooksey. In February 1860, while living in Pella, Iowa, 16-year-old Virgil eloped with 17-year-old Dutch immigrant Magdalena C.

"Ellen" Rysdam. One report states that they saw each other only and kept their marriage secret until Ellen was about to deliver their first child; when her parents Gerrit Rysdam and Magdalena Catrina Van Velzen learned of the marriage, they were furious, as they preferred that she marry a man, Dutch. Virgil's father thought. Both parents wanted to get the marriage annulled. One source reports that Rysdam was successful, but another says her father failed because Virgil and Ellen refused to reveal where they had been married, they claimed they had used false names, which would have made the marriage invalid in any case. Virgil and Ellen remained together for a year in spite of her parents' disapproval. On July 26, 1861, Virgil enlisted at age 18 in the Union Army. Ellen had a daughter named Nellie Jane, born January 7, 1862 or in July 1862. Virgil was mustered in to the Illinois Volunteer Infantry for three years on September 21, 1862. Virgil was assigned to the 83rd Illinois Infantry on August 21, 1863.

The 83rd was on garrison duty in Tennessee. Virgil was court docked two weeks pay as punishment. In the summer of 1863 while Virgil was on active duty, Ellen's father told her that Virgil had been killed in Tennessee. In early 1864, Ellen married a Dutch man named John Van Rossum, in May of that year they joined a large group who relocated from Pella, Iowa, to the Oregon Territory; when Virgil was discharged from the military on June 26, 1865, he returned to Iowa but could not find his wife and daughter. He hired on at a local farm and helped operate a grocery store, before leaving for California to join the rest of the Earp family. In 1868, Nicholas Earp took the family east again settling in Lamar, Missouri. On August 28, 1870, Virgil married Rosella Dragoo in Lamar, his father as justice of the peace married them. Virgil met Alvira "Allie" Sullivan from Florence, Nebraska in 1874, she was a waitress at the Planter's House Hotel in Iowa. They never remained together the rest of his life. During the remainder of his life, Virgil worked at a variety of jobs, including peace officer, rail construction in Wyoming, stagecoach driver, sawmill sawyer in Prescott, Arizona Territory, in life, prospector.

The Earp brothers were close and moved together, seeking a better life. Virgil spent time in Dodge City, Kansas in 1877 with his younger brother Wyatt, though there is no record of Virgil holding any law enforcement position there, Allie claimed he worked as a deputy town marshal with Wyatt. From Dodge City and Allie moved to Prescott in July 1877, the capital of the Arizona Territory. Virgil first delivered mail in Miller Valley later owned a saw mill at the base of Thumb Butte, just west of Prescott. In October 1877, U. S. Marshal Wiley Standifer, Yavapai County Sheriff Edward Franklin Bowers, Prescott Constable Frank Murray, Virgil Earp, a man named McCall attempted to arrest John Tallos and an accused murderer named Wilson. While the others rode on horseback or carriages, Virgil ran on foot after the posse that pursued the two men to the edge of town, where a gun fight broke out. Virgil spotted o

Cyclone Burglind

Cyclone Burglind was an extratropical cyclone and European windstorm that affected Ireland, the United Kingdom, Benelux, Germany and Switzerland on the 2–3 January 2018. The storm caused traffic disruption, it was given the name Eleanor by Met Éireann and the UK Met Office, while the Free University of Berlin named the low pressure Burglind. Eleanor developed to the west of Ireland as a secondary cyclone on 2 January to the parent low "Alja" to the southwest of Iceland, developing as a wave along the trailing cold front of the parent low. Eleanor intensified reaching a minimum pressure of 966 hPa as it moved east across Scotland under a strong westerly jet stream. Before the low centre tracked across the North Sea to Denmark. To the south of the central low Eleanor caused strong winds which covered a large footprint of across much of western Europe; the ECMWF operational forecast model of maximum winds featured a narrow corridor of strong winds crossing Ireland and Northern Ireland, which they suggested could be indicative of a Sting jet.

Pillar of the Boatmen

The Pillar of the Boatmen is a monumental Roman column erected in Lutetia in honour of Jupiter by the guild of boatmen in the 1st century AD. It is the oldest monument in Paris and is one of the earliest pieces of representational Gallo-Roman art to carry a written inscription, it was found re-used in the 4th century city wall on the Île de la Cité and is now displayed in the frigidarium of the Thermes de Cluny. The pillar is made of a type of limestone called "pierre de Saint-Leu-d'Esserent", from Saint-Leu, France; the original pillar would have been 91 cm wide at the base and 74 cm wide at the top. It is to have been formed in four tiers and although the order from top to bottom is reasonably certain from the relative sizes of the blocks, we do not know the rotational order in which the blocks were arranged. However, there is no proof that they were stacked and could have been two pairs of altars; the guild was for wealthy shipowners or traders. An indication of the power of the guild is shown by one of the sculptures of the pillar where they parade in arms with shields and spears, a privilege granted by the Romans, exceptional in less than half a century after the conquest of Gaul.

The guild was the first known society of Paris. Written in Latin with some Gaulish language features, the inscription mingles Roman deities with gods that are distinctly Gallic; the pillar is dated by a dedication to Tiberius Caesar Augustus, Tiberius who became emperor in 14 AD. It was set up publicly from the civitas of the Parisii; these sailors would have been merchants. The main dedication is to Jupiter in the form of Iovis Optimus Maximus; the names of the emperor and the supreme deity appear in the dative case as the recipients of the dedication. The remaining theonyms are nominative legends; these are Jove, Tarvos Trigaranos, Esus, Castor and Fortuna. The dedication is as follows: Tib Caesare / Aug Ioui Optum / Maxsumo / nautae Parisiaci / publice posierunt // Eurises // Senan Uelo // Iouis // Taruos Trigaranus // Volcanus // Esus // ernunnos // Castor // // Smer // Fort // TVS // D The pillar provides the only undisputed instance of the divine name Cernunnos; the Gaulish theonyms are presented as deity names in their own right, not as epithets for Roman gods.

Other figures appear on the pillar without legible inscriptions, including the Roman gods Mars and Mercury, who can be identified by their conventional iconography, other unidentified figures female. The top tier, of which only the top half remains, depicts Cernunnos and Castor and Pollux. Cernunnos has stag's antlers from. From the amount of the body in the top half, Cernunnos is assumed to have been depicted in a cross-legged seated position as is typical of other Cernunnos depictions. Smertrios is shown brandishing a club and attacking a snake. Castor and Pollux are shown standing beside their horses, each holding a spear; the second tier, complete, shows Jupiter, Tarvos Trigaranos and Vulcan. Jupiter is shown holding a spear and a thunderbolt. Esus is shown standing beside a willow tree. Tarvos Trigaranus is depicted as a heavy-set bull standing in front of a willow tree. Two cranes stand on a third on his head. Vulcan is shown standing, with tongs; the third tier, the top half of which survives, bears the main dedicatory inscription on one face.

Since this has a border and appears complete, the content of the bottom half of this face is unknown. The other sides show a group of three young men with spears, they are unarmed, dressed in flowing gowns, have an inscription Senani Ueiloni. The fourth, lowest tier is wider than the upper three. Only the top half remains, the inscriptions are badly damaged; each face shows a pair of standing figures. Mars, with spear and sword, is accompanied by a female deity with large round ear-rings and a flowing garment, held over one arm. Mercury, identifiable by his caduceus, is depicted with a goddess who may be Rosmerta, his frequent companion in Gallic art. Fortuna is accompanied by another female deity Juno. Two other unidentified female deities are on the fourth face, the one to the left is naked to the waist and holds a large cloak behind her with upraised arms; some time in the 3rd century, the stone blocks that formed the pillar were broken into two and used to reinforce the foundations of the walls along the riverbank.

Over time, the island grew so that the 3rd-century wharfs are now a dozen metres from the banks of the modern river. The Christian cathedral of St. Etienne was founded by Childebert in 528 AD on the site of the Gallo-Roman temple; the pillar was found on 6 March 1710 during the
