Louis de Bonald

Louis Gabriel Ambroise, Vicomte de Bonald, was a French counter-revolutionary philosopher and politician. He is remembered for developing a set of social theories that exercised a powerful influence in shaping the ontological framework from which French sociology would emerge. Bonald came from an ancient noble family of Provence, he was educated at the Oratorian college at Juilly, after serving with the Artillery, he held a post in the local administration of his native province. Elected to the States General of 1789 as a deputy for Aveyron, he opposed the new legislation on the civil status of the clergy and emigrated in 1791. There he joined the army of the Prince of Condé. There he wrote his first important work, the conservative Theorie du Pouvoir Politique et Religieux dans la Societe Civile Demontree par le Raisonnement et l'Histoire, which the Directory condemned. Upon returning to France, he found himself an object of suspicion and at first lived in retirement. In 1806, he, along with Joseph Fiévée, edited the Mercure de France.

Two years he was appointed counsellor of the Imperial University, which he had attacked previously. After the Bourbon Restoration he was a member of the council of public instruction. From 1815 to 1822, de Bonald served as a deputy in the Chamber of Deputies, his speeches were conservative and he advocated literary censorship. In 1825, he argued in favor of the Anti-Sacrilege Act, including its prescription of the death penalty under certain conditions. In 1822, de Bonald was made Minister of State, presided over the censorship commission. In the following year, he was made a peer, a dignity which he had lost by refusing to take the required oath in 1803. In 1816, he was appointed to the French Academy. In 1830, he spent the remainder of his days on his estate at Le Monna. De Bonald had four sons, two of whom and Louis, led lives of some note. Bonald was one of the leading writers of the theocratic or traditionalist school, which included de Maistre, Lamennais and baron Ferdinand d'Eckstein, his writings are on social and political philosophy, are based on one great principle, the divine origin of language.

In his own words, "L'homme pense sa parole avant de parler sa pensée". From this he deduces the existence of God, the divine origin and consequent supreme authority of the Holy Scriptures, the infallibility of the Catholic Church. While this thought lies at the root of all his speculations, there is a formula of constant application. All relations may be stated as the triad of cause and effect, which he sees repeated throughout nature. Thus, in the universe, he finds the first cause as mover, movement as the means, bodies as the result; these three terms bear specific relations to one another. Thus, in the great triad of the religious world—God, the Mediator, Man—God is to the God-Man as the God-Man is to Man. On this basis, he constructed a system of political absolutism. Bonald published one of the most violent anti-Semitic texts of the post-French Revolutionary period, Sur les juifs. In it, the Philosophes are condemned for fashioning the intellectual tools used to justify Jewish emancipation during the Revolution.

Bonald accuses the Jews of not becoming "authentic" French citizens and disrupting traditional society. Michele Battini writes:According to Bonald the Constituent Assembly had committed "the enormous mistake of knowingly putting laws in conflict with religion and customs," but, sooner or the government would have to change its mind, as would "the friends of the blacks" who regretted "the haste with which they called for freedom for a people who had always been alien." The Jews, by their "nature," are a nation destined to remain alien to other peoples. This "foreignness" appears—this seems the sense of the reference to the noirs —to be an objective fact, permanent and "physical," and for this reason analogous to the racial difference with the blacks. Bonald calls for the reversal of Jewish emancipation and endorses new discriminatory measures:such as the imposition of identifying marks on the clothes of the enemy who had become "invisible" because of emancipation; the identification mark would be justified by the need to identify those responsible for behavior hostile to the bien public.

The return to the past sounds like a premonition of Hitler’s decrees. "Monarchy considers man in his ties with society. "There was geometry in the world before Newton, philosophy before Descartes, but before language there was nothing but bodies and their images, because language is the necessary instrument of every intellectual operation — nay, the means of every moral existence." "Man thinks his word before he speaks his thought, or, in other words, man cannot speak his thought without thinking his word." "The deist is a man who in his short existence has not had time to become an atheist." "Absolute liberty of the press is a tax upon those. It is demanded only by those who write." "The cry'Liberty, fraternity or death!' was much in vogue during the Revolution. Liberty ended by covering France with prisons, equality by multiplying titles and decorations, fraternity by dividing us. Death alone prev

Hinsonville

Hinsonville is a former municipality in Chester County, Pennsylvania, now replaced by the grounds of Lincoln University. It was established and populated by free African-American residents, with the acres of Hinsonville being first purchased by Edward Walls, a free black man, born in Maryland, in 1829; the town was named for its first permanent resident, Emory Hinson, another Maryland-born free black man. Located six miles north of the Mason–Dixon line and at the crossroads of Russellville-Elkdale Road and Oxford-Jennersville Road in the southern tip of Upper Oxford Township, the agricultural town of Hinsonville became an ideal residence for African-Americans escaping slavery in neighboring Maryland from the 1820s to the 1850s. By 1843-1845, when the Hosanna AUMP Church was established in town, Hinsonville had grown large from the flight of free black families from the South. In 1854, James Ralston Amos, a founding trustee of the town, asked Rev. John Miller Dickey, a Presbyterian minister, his wife, Sarah Emlen Cresson, a Quaker, to start what became the Ashmun Institute in Hinsonville.

They named it after a religious leader and social reformer. They founded the school for the education of African Americans, who had few opportunities for higher education, was supported by local residents to educate the young men of Hosanna Church in Christian religion; the success of the Ashmun Institute led to its growth into the surrounding town being renamed Lincoln University in 1866 after Abraham Lincoln's death. Hosanna was used as a station on the Underground Railroad, would send at least 18 of their men to the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, the only African-American regiment in the Union Army. One of the town's most famous residents was Richard B. Fitzgerald, who, as a child, was relocated by his parents with his family from Delaware to a 25-acre farm near Hinsonville in order to reduce the risk to their children of being kidnapped by slave catchers and sold into slavery. Fitzgerald would achieve prominence as a bricklayer and businessman; as of 2017, the Hosanna AUMP Church is the only remaining architectural structure from Hinsonville.

Descendants of Hinsonville's early residents still attend the church. In 2015, a memorial bench was placed near Hosanna in commemoration of the church by members of the Toni Morrison Society as part of their "Bench by the Road" program

Henry Wade Exit Route

The Harry Wade Exit Route was discovered and made by Henry Wade from Illinois in 1849. Henry Wade, his wife and children were in the Bennett-Arcan party caravan emigrating west. At the direction of guide Jefferson Hunt the caravan took a poorly planned turn and descended into Death Valley, California while looking for a shortcut off the Old Spanish Trail; the caravan of a 100 wagons were looking for the shortcut to get to the California Gold Rush sooner. Some of the party died in the name stuck. Henry Wade found a path out of the Valley, the trail he made is today called the Henry Wade Road, a dirt road. After departing Death Valley Wade found the Old Spanish Trail and came to Southern California though the Cajon Pass. Many in the party suffered but, made it out of Death Valley. Harry Wade Exit Route was designated a California Historic Landmark on Oct. 9, 1957. A marker was placed about 30 miles north of Baker, California on the Harry Wade Exit Route, to designate where his family escaped; the marker is at the southern end of Death Valley National Park.

Harry Wade was born on March 1800 at Rochester, England. He married Mary Reynolds Leach, born on June 17, 1813 in London, England. In 1836 he settled in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. After surviving the move to California they moved to Northern California and ran an inn, called The American House in Alviso, California, he died on October 1883 in Alviso. Mary died on May 1889 in Alviso. Henry Wade was part of; this was a group of pioneers from the Eastern United States that endured a long and difficult journey during the late 1840s California Gold Rush to prospect in the Sutter's Fort area of the Central Valley and Sierra Nevada in California. Their route from Utah went through the Great Basin Desert in Nevada, Death Valley and the Mojave Desert in Southern California, in attempting to reach the Gold Country; the Death Valley party had split up from the Donner Party that took a more northern route, that turned out to be more difficult. Marker about 30 miles north of Baker, at the site reads: NO. 622 HARRY WADE EXIT ROUTE – After getting to Death Valley with the ill-fated 1849 caravan, Harry Wade found this exit route for his ox-drawn wagon and thereby saved his life and the lives of his wife and children.

At this point the Wade party came upon the known Spanish Trail to Cajón Pass.
