1780: Battle of King’s Mountain

Patriot irregulars during the American Revolution defeated Tories under the battle of King’s Peak, Colonel William Campbell.

Major Ferguson’s Tory force, made up mostly of American Loyalists from South Carolina and elsewhere, was the western wing of General Lord Cornwallis’ North Carolina invasion force. One thousand American frontiersmen assembled in the backcountry on the border of Colonel Campbell of Virginia to fight the advance of Ferguson. Ferguson, pursued by the Patriots, put his Torah force in defense of King’s Mountain’s rigged, treless ridge. The Patriots have repeatedly accused the hillside of lethal marking against the Loyalists surrounded by it.

Ferguson was not able to yield to a “bands of banditti” and took a suicidal allegation down the mountain. Some of his men tried to give up after his death, but the frontier men who were bitter about British excesses in Carolinas were slaughtered in cold blood. 157 were killed, 163 were injured, and 698 were captured by the Tories. Just 28 killed and 60 injured were sustained by Colonel Campbell’s army.

1959: The far side of the moon is photographed for the first time.

The moon’s far side is often called the moon’s “Dark side” There is no real “dark” moon as sunlight gets half of the time in all parts of the moon except in the depths of its poles. However, until 1959 it had been unknown on the far part of the moon, the hand still facing the Planet.

On 3rd October 1959, the Russian sample, Luna 3, was initiated. It was started on a path of Figure 8 which led it to the far side, which was illuminated by the sun at that time, within 6.200 kilometers. On 7th October 1959, the first images were taken on the far side of the moon. Although the depictions were vague and poorly resolved, they displayed characteristics on the other hand, including a mountainous area.

INVENTION/SCIENCE HISTORY

1913: Moving assembly line debuts at Ford factory

Until the chassis – the car frame – is assembled using innovative manufacturing techniques, the entire automotive plant, Henry Ford, works, works on a constantly moving assembly line in Michigan, Highland Park. The chassis was pulled from the workplace and the factory pieces by an engine and seam, taking out the man-hours needed to complete one model T of 12-1/2 to 6 hours. Within one year, the time needed to upgrade the production line was reduced to 93 man-minutes. The surprising productivity increase caused by Ford’s moving assembly line saw a dramatic reduction in T-model prices, fulfilling his dream of making the car affordable to ordinary consumers.
