William Henry Gleysteen Jr. was an American diplomat. Raised in Beijing, Gleysteen graduated from Yale University and began working for the United States Department of State in 1951, he served as United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea between 1978 and 1981. Gleysteen was born in Peking, China, to American parents who were Presbyterian missionaries and William Henry Gleysteen, his paternal grandparents were Dutch. Gleysteen attended the Peking American School, his father was principal of a large middle school for boys, where his mother taught. Japan controlled Beijing starting in 1937, after the Pearl Harbor attack Gleysteen and his family were sent to an internment camp in Wei Xian, Shandong, they were repatriated to the United States in December 1943, after which Gleysteen finished his high school education and graduated from Westtown Friends School in Pennsylvania. After graduation he served in the United States Navy for two years, first as a student in the V-12 Navy College Training Program and as an enlisted sailor.
At the end of the war, Gleysteen attended Yale University, where he majored in European intellectual history. He remained at Yale to complete a master's degree in international relations. While at Yale, Gleysteen was influenced by fellow students who were foreign service officers, as well as his older brother Culver, a foreign service officer by that time. Gleysteen joined the State Department's Civil Service in 1951 as a clerk typist in the Executive Secretariat, during the time of Secretaries Dean Acheson and John Foster Dulles, he was converted to a Foreign Service Officer in 1954 as part of a policy adopted by Dulles designed to integrate the Foreign and Civil Services, which caused the Foreign Service to double in size in just four years. Gleysteen subsequently served in Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, along with several assignments in Washington, DC, he spoke Mandarin fluently, having first learned it as a child and studying it again in Taiwan before beginning his assignment. Gleysteen was nominated by the Carter administration to serve as the United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea.
He arrived in Seoul in June 1978, stayed until his retirement in 1981. While serving as Ambassador Gleysteen had to contend with several important events which affected the bilateral relationship; the Koreagate scandal erupted during the 1976 U. S. elections when it came out that members of Congress had accepted bribes from South Korean agents in return for favorable treatment of Korean interests. This issue was still being investigated when Gleysteen arrived in Seoul in 1978. One of Gleysteen's first tasks as Ambassador was to convey a request from House Speaker Tip O’Neill, which would give two House members access to former Korean ambassador to the United States Kim Dong-jo and alleged Korean agent Park Tong-sun; the furor died down several months following the 1978 U. S. elections. Another issue during Gleysteen's tenure as Ambassador was President Carter's proposed withdrawal of U. S. troops from the Korean Peninsula. Then-governor Carter had criticized South Korea's human rights record during his presidential campaign, after assuming the presidency in January 1977, he directed that plans for a full withdrawal be drawn up.
Gleysteen opposed the withdrawal and persuaded President Carter to reconsider the policy in a famous exchange in the President's limousine during a 1979 presidential visit to Seoul. Although the United States earned plaudits among South Koreans for its consistent criticism of political repression in the Park and Chun eras, Gleysteen said that those positive emotions were “muffled for many years by emotions and misinformation that mushroomed after the Kwangju Uprising in the spring of 1980.” In his memoirs, Gleysteen said the Kwangju Uprising took place in the context of the long-running democratization movement as well as regional rivalry between the Cholla Province and Park Chung-hee's native Gyeongsang Province. The proximate cause of the incident was a renewed and extended nationwide state of martial law declared by Chun, along with the arrest of democratization leaders, including Cholla native Kim Dae-jung; the uprising began on May 18 with a protest by 200 students at the Chonnam National University.
A series of violent skirmishes with the police increased the number of protestors, by May 20 the number of protesters had grown to 10,000. On May 21 a group of students and other citizens of Kwangju attacked government buildings, seizing weapons and ammunition; as the rebellion unfolded, Ambassador Gleysteen and General Wickham criticized military and political leaders for their handling of the incident, on May 21 the South Korean troops were withdrawn to the edge of the city, beginning a standoff which continued until May 27, when some 6,000 troops entered Kwangju, ending the rebellion. During the uprising but before the outbreak of serious violence, Gleysteen met with General Chun to urge restraint with regard to the student protests, received multiple assurances that the Korean government was "very aware of the danger of over reaction and the use of military force," and that "the president was determined to go to great lengths to avoid using the army except as an instrument of last resort".
President Choi made a speech in June expressing regret for the violent turn of events, but he did not offer an apology, although Gleysteen said that he had encouraged him to do so. Gleysteen married his first wife, Zoe Clubb, in December 1952, they had three children together: Thea Clarke, Guy Gleysteen, Michael Gleysteen. He married his second

To be included, entries must be notable and described by a consensus of reliable sources as "terrorism". List entries must comply with the guidelines outlined in the manual of style under MOS:TERRORIST. Casualties figures in this list are the total casualties of the incident including immediate casualties and casualties. Casualties listed are the victims. Perpetrator casualties are listed separately. Casualty totals may be unavailable due to a lack of information. A figure with a plus sign indicates that at least that many people have died – the actual toll could be higher. A figure with a plus sign may indicate that over that number of people have died. If casualty figures are 20 or more, they will be shown in bold. In addition, figures for casualties more than 50 will be underlined.

The Black Warrior Basin is a geologic sedimentary basin of western Alabama and northern Mississippi in the United States. It is named for the Black Warrior River and is developed for coal and coalbed methane production, as well as for conventional oil and natural gas production. Coalbed methane of the Black Warrior Basin has been developed and in production longer than in any other location in the United States; the coalbed methane is produced from the Pennsylvanian Pottsville Coal Interval. The Black Warrior basin was a foreland basin during the Ouachita Orogeny during the Pennsylvanian and Permian Periods; the basin received sediments from the Appalachian orogeny during the Pennsylvanian. The western margin of the basin lies beneath the sediments of the Mississippi embayment where it is contiguous with the Arkoma Basin of northern Arkansas and northeastern Oklahoma; the region existed as a quiescent continental shelf environment through the early Paleozoic from the Cambrian through the Mississippian with the deposition of shelf sandstones, limestone and chert.
