APUSH Review: The Frontier - YouTube A brief review of everything important about the Frontier that you need to know to succeed in APUSH.
Democracy was a trait of agricultural communities, Turner maintained, and therefore small landholdings were necessary to establish yeomanry. His economic analysis of the frontier borrows from myth in its claim that American democracy came out of the American forest, a recurring rejuvenation of man and society along the frontier.
It is a book not only for the scholar and teacher (who will find it both useful and incisive), but also for the mythic "general reader" who wants to broaden and enrich his aquaintanceship with Turner and the celebrated Frontier Thesis.
Turner's metaphors often attempt to stand in for discursive reasoning, as in his account of democracy's Antaean birth and his portrait, in an essay for the in 1903, of a beneficent maternal nature creating an agrarian utopia in the West. It might be argued that Turner's frontier democracy is Jefferson's original agrarian ideal dressed up as historical analysis.
We have been restructuring the database and the organization of Digital History for the past three years, and we feel this makeover will significantly improve the usability of our materials. In our new interface, materials are organized by era, so users will easily be able to view many different types of resources for a particular era such as the textbook, images, primary sources, multimedia and teacher materials.
The frontier hypothesis' interpretation of the West in terms of nature isolated the region from both the urban East and Europe, while the idea of civilization as a reproduction of the cultural accomplishments of Europe imposed on the West a social and cultural inferiority which hindered any acknowledgement of its own novelty in world history.
I learned a few very cool things from my Dad, and from Mr. Luther, about parts of the history of the Miss Vicki. Apparently she was quite the celebrity and very unique. My Dad told me that at one point during his tour there, Ann-Margaret and Johnny Rivers came over there to entertain the troops!
The 'Miss Vicki' flew them in!
The other thing that my pilot buddy told me was that the only other plane that looked like the 'Miss Vicki' was General Westmoreland's plane: known as 'The White Whale', due to its white top.
With some help for a few really good friends, and my husband's computer savvy, here is what we were able to find out.
The Miss Vicki left Nha Trang in 1973 and was delivered to Thailand, where she flew until 1984 (oddly enough the very year I graduated high school) and then she was decommissioned, painted and given that 'false number' I mentioned. She was put on display there in Thailand at the Royal Air Force in front of the Parachute Battalion Head Quarters in Don Muang.
That being said, I am wondering if there is more to her story than just being on display in Thailand? According to what we've looked up and researched, she was in Alaska in June of 1996?
So I am very curious where she is now: Thailand or Alaska?
I wanted to share this with you and if you have any other info on that plane I would be eternally thankful if you could let me know.
I plan on compiling all of my findings and possibly writing about it. At the very least to circulate it to those who helped me find her and learn more about her.

I work at the NASA Fol at El Paso,TX where we maintain and operate the NASA Super Guppy.
The aircraft is currently in PDM inspection at Tinker AFB. We use the KC-97 56 gallon aux oil tanks which were originally mounted in the lower forward nose section of the 97 as water/methanol storage tanks, 4 each, in the engine nacelles. Three out of four tanks are in pretty bad shape and we curently have no spares.
The Guppy will be again be a valuable asset to the American space program with the upcoming mission to Mars and it is imperative that we find at least three of these tanks as soon as possible.
Please let me know if you have any information about where we could obtain these parts. The manual lists the part number as 14-4922-56.
Indeed, ignorance toward the industrial revolution and isolationist distrust of foreign influences--from the city or overseas--had impeded cooperation between farmers and factory workers in numerous crises of American history.

Farmers follow miners who follow a trapper, as if to predict and thus confirm the "Turner Thesis"
In front of this onslaught, buffalo and bear (wildlife) and native savages flee from encroaching brightness of the good future
No obvious presence of preachers or the US military can be seen
What we see is simply the natural force of "American progress" pressuring alarmed and their dogs out of the way
Read Tocqueville's account of Native-Americans forced to cross the Mississippi westward, leaving their dogs on the eastern embankment 
Is this not a portrait of the "Westernization" of the "West"?
