Homo erectus: The History of the Archaic Humans Who Left Africa and Formed the First Hunter-Gatherer Societies

by Charles River Editors

Most scientists believe the evolution of humans has a history as long as life itself. Anatomically modern humans and all other life that has existed on the planet first came about from the single-celled microorganisms that emerged approximately 4 billion years ago. Through the processes of mutation and natural selection, all forms of life developed, and this continuous lineage of life makes it difficult to say precisely when one species completely separates from another. In other words, scientists still debate when a human became a human rather than the ancestor species that came before.

Around 1.8 million years ago, a third species of Homo appeared in the fossil record. H. erectus would have shared the landscape for a time with H. habilis and H. rudolfensis, but the fossils of H. erectus are not limited to eastern and southern Africa. Instead, they are found across Africa and parts of mainland and insular Asia. This is the first species of Homo to be found outside Africa (Rightmire 1993).

Features of H. erectus suggest an evolution toward modern humans, and the features which separate H. erectus from the other Homo species are found in the skull. The size of the brain was approximately 900 cc, making it larger than the brain size of H. habilis. H. erectus would not have the largest brain capacity of the Homo genus during its existence, with the emergence of H. heidelbergensis approximately 800,000 years ago. The larger brain size may not matter much when the size of the brain is considered with the size of the body, which also increased.

While the facial features of H. erectus would have made them noticeably different if they were alive today, their postcranial morphology may have been similar to modern humans. A key difference is the density or thickness of the bones; in H. erectus the limb bones are more robust, but otherwise they appear very similar to modern humans. The length of the hindlimbs in relation to the arms is similar to modern humans, which means that H. erectus may have been able to walk in a similar way. (Richtmire 1993: 57-84). This may or may not be linked with the widespread distribution of H. erectus.

Perhaps more important for H. erectus than simply being able to walk out of Africa would have been the ability to adapt to changing climates and essentially modify the environment around them. Most notably, the major advantage that H. erectus would have had is the ability to control fire. This skill, which no other animal has mastered, helped H. erectus travel across the world, and it may date as far back as 1.7 million years ago to as recently as 200,000 years ago. Most scientists agree that H. erectus was able to control fire by at least 600,000 years ago, and anatomically modern humans were able to create and use fire 150,000 years ago. The early species of Homo would have been familiar with the effects of fire, from the devastation it could cause to jungle habitats to the rapid spreading wildfires of the savanna. These fires would have killed and burned animals that early Homo would have found while scavenging after a natural fire.

Homo erectus: The History of the Archaic Humans Who Left Africa and Formed the First Hunter-Gatherer Societies examines how H. erectus evolved, and what their lives were like. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about H. erectus like never before.â??

GlobalSpeak: Confederate Ghosts, the Attack on Freedom of Speech, and the Rise of the New World Order

by Col. Gene Jackson Johnston

What is historic discrimination? World governance? Learn these and other leftist terms in “GlobalSpeak: Confederate Statues, the Attack on Freedom of Speech, and the Rise of the New World Order.” It explains the connection between the coming of a one-world government and the left’s removal of American heroes’ statues and the efforts to suppress conservatives’ free speech. Statues of our heroes of the past–both Union and Confederate, as well as religious leaders, patriot songwriters, and our Founding Fathers–are being removed at a fast pace as local authorities run scared of being called “racist.” Leftists want to scrap the Constitution and build their own society, one far removed from the America that most of us cherish. The book also explains further the next holidays and heroes to be targeted, including Abraham Lincoln. The nation is falling into insanity, and “GlobalSpeak” will tell you why. The book, with photos and illustrations, features a long section of terminology currently used by the left that will probably will be staples of the New World Order. If you want to prepare yourself to speak to liberals in the New World, you will want this book. It is rated “UnPC” by the National Association for the Advancement of Deplorable People (NAADP). Remember their slogan: “We may be deplorable, but we’re always right!”



The Miracle at Plattsburgh

by Carl R. Dillenback

In the annals of human history, there have been very few battles fought which decide, not only the outcome of wars, but the fate of nations for generations to come. The battle fought at the tiny Village of Plattsburgh, New York, was such a contest.

The land and naval Battle at Plattsburgh decided who would control all of North America, and whether or not the Republic of the United States of America would live or die. Would the concepts of the liberty and the equality of man survive, or be dashed to bits after only twenty-four years of life? The very existence of the American Nation hung in the balance on Sunday morning, September 11th, 1814.

The defeat of Napoleon, released tens of thousands of seasoned British Troops into the American war theater. Now off the planning table, invasion of the United States of America became a reality. The northern mission of Britain’s three pronged plan, to divide and conquer America, was by invasion from Canada at the upper end of Lake Champlain. The British Army in massive strength, some 15,000 strong, crossed the US border on the 1st. of September, 1814, and headed straight for New York City via Albany. The only obstacle in their path was the tiny Village of Plattsburgh, N.Y., located on the upper western shore of Lake Champlain. The village was defended by untested regulars, and local militias made up farmers, tradesmen, young boys and old men, with a total strength of 4500. Lake Champlain was defended by a 31 year old Naval Lieutenant, who was forced to build his own ships, and train his own sailors, because there was no US Naval presences on Lake Champlain, prior to his arrival in the area.

This small force was all that stood against the army that had defeated Napoleon, and the naval veterans who had destroyed the French at Trafalgar.

What you are about to read is the greatest adventure story in American History. The incredible, almost unbelievable story of how a 32 year old Army Engineering Officer with 4500 men, and a 31 year old Navy Lieutenant with a pine-sap fleet, and even greener sailors, defeated the grandest army since Imperial Rome, and saved a nation.

The story that can only be described as “THE MIRACLE AT PLATTSBURGH”
