Pythagoras. One of the most interesting historical figures. Named after the great Python in the Oracle of Delphi who predicted his birth. He was perhaps the only man virtuous enough to be inducted into the greater mysteries of Greece, Egypt, Babylonia, the Middle East and India. “The father of numbers”
#Throwback to the very early 1900s. This is the Kuttawa home of Lyon County Attorney Walter Krone. (circa 1905) The second photo is Mr Krone, his wife and guards on their front porch. Mr. Krone was a thorn in the side and determined prosecutor of the "Night Riders". A name given to a group of tobacco farmers who formed The Black Patch District Planters' Protective Association (PPA) in resistance to the monopolistic practices of The American Tobacco Company. These practices made it nearly impossible for tobacco farmers to make a living. A group of these farmers began terrorizing independent farmers in an effort to force them to boycott the ATC, and even resorted to attacking people, and burning crops and ATC warehouses. They eventually occupied whole towns, exerting most control in 1908 when they had taken control of the courts and officers in the districts. Attorneys began moving their plaintiffs out of Kentucky in order for them to qualify for suit in federal courts. Thus breaking the power of the Night Riders. The Black Patch Tobacco War was the longest and most violent conflict between the civil war the civil rights movement in the mid 1960s. It lasted from 1904 to 1909. #kentuckyhistory#historicalfigures#kyhistory#nightriders#blackpatch#tbt#throwbackthursday#kuttawahistory#historylesson#walterkrone#westkyhistory#kuttawaky
