Arlington National Cemetery’s Amphitheater Reveals 105 Yr Old Time Capsule Treasures

It would appear that 2020 is the year for unveiling many secrets and treasures hidden away for safekeeping by people, places, and things who are now apart of American history.

Although Arlington National Cemetery was and is still closed to the public due to Covid-19, the date of May 15, 2020, marked the centennial anniversary of the Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Amphitheater, as just a month earlier, the National Historian and Conservator participated in the opening and extraction of the copper box filled with the 105-year-old time capsule since the construction of the Arlington amphitheater began in 1915.

As we reflect back to 1974, it’s recorded that the time capsule was transported from the cornerstone when the east staircase facing the Tomb of the Unknown soldier was about to be added and covered the original cornerstone.

Never opened and still encased in its copper metal box, the time capsule was stored at the National Archives in 1976, it was returned to the cemetery and not installed in the new cornerstone at a different location in the structure until the 1990s renovation project.

Imagine if you will, this time capsule containing treasures from Woodrow Wilson’s Presidency which by the way included a signed picture of the late president who also participated in laying the original cornerstone on Oct. 13, 1915, and personally taking part in spreading the mortar before the stone was placed while the national anthem played on in the presence of 5,000 attendees.

The 2 1/2 hours of carefully crafting through the copper metal box unveiled a treasure trove of antiquities dating over one hundred years ago containing the following:

An advance copy of the dedication ceremony program

A Bible (signed by Thomas Hastings, the architect of the amphitheater) wrapped in brown paper and tied with red string. The Bible contained a thin blue ribbon within the Old Testament’s Book of Joshua’s first chapter, the only conclusion derived by this marker is noted that Hastings was the son of a Presbyterian minister.

A signed photograph of President Woodrow Wilson

Six coins (one of each cent)

A copy of the congressional hearings directory put into the amphitheater labeled “to be put in cornerstone,”

Uncirculated stamps with images of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin

Four local newspapers (The Evening Star, Washington Herald, Washington Post, and Washington Times)

Copies of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution which the historian noted stops at the 17th Amendment, due to the capsules creation date of 1915, there were documents missing historic moments while the amphitheater was completed, including the passage of the 19th Amendment, celebrating it’s centennial this year.

An American Flag with 46 stars although there were 48 states in 1915 which must have been randomly thrown in without thought because New Mexico and Arizona became the 47th and 48th states in 1912.

The D.C. Architect, Engineer & Designer, Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s blueprints for the building plans and maps of Washington D.C.

Boyd’s thick Directory of the District of Columbia, an annual directory of city residents.

Pamphlet labeled “Confederate Dead” Civil War veterans pamphlets and a program from the 1915 “encampment” of thousands of Civil War veterans near the U.S. Capitol.

Red Tape used to wrap various treasures

One hundred years from now our future generations will wonder what it what like to step back in time and placement of history during the Donald Trump Presidency, currently, there are plans being made to place a new time capsule in 2020 to be opened in 2120.

It’s Five Minutes to Midnight

Americans cannot afford to sit quietly and ignore the growing hysteria. We in America stand on the threshold of an unprecedented madness as we allow our nation to be undermined by those who would destroy all that generations of Americans have fought and died for. It is 1939 again, and we are the comfortable Europeans denying the growing threat of the Third Reich…

Achieving Victory Over the Marxist Democrat Big Lie

The Marxist Democrats lie about everything. The basis of their power is the Big Lie—there is no difference between Democrats and Hitler, Democrats and Stalin, Democrats and Mao. If we don’t realize this, then we will keep losing. Just look at the horrific inflation we are experiencing due to President pudding-head Biden’s regime spending…

Joe Biden’s plans to cripple America’s farm states by engaging in the greatest theft in American history in the name of the ludicrous goal of “stopping climate change.” Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, is joined by 16 farm-state governors who sent a letter to Biden on February 22 warning of his federal overreach…

COVID Inoculations: Potential Gain of Benefit vs. Risk of Injury Using CDC Data

Analyzing both sides, and a simple benefit versus risk metric can be established so everyone can see which age ranges benefit from the shot. From this simple analysis of CDC data, it becomes very clear that in American citizens under 40 years of age, the risk far exceeds any potential Gain of Benefit due to the remarkably good news that each of these age groups has a 99.9% recovery rate. The verdict?

The CDC announced in late April after over 10,000 vaccine failures that they were going to scrub any further reporting of breakthroughs probably because of the labor-intensive nature of receiving sporadic cases from local departments of public health and then centralizing the data at the CDC. Those who have natural immunity from prior COVID-19 infection have…

A ‘Well-Funded Cabal’ of Powerful People Fortified the Election, says Time

The Biden Administration claims that censoring the American people is perfectly fine, as long as the government partners with private firms, like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Verizon, to provide said censorship. Understand that under the Biden Administration, censoring the American people is referred to as ‘safeguarding elections,’ while spreading factual information that may hurt Democrats in elections is ‘misinformation’…

Immeasurable is the havoc wreaked by cold-hearted villains whose love of money supersedes any hint of love for their fellow man. Equally important is exposing the facts of what really transpired in the Wuhan lab, along with all its sinister players such as eugenics-lover Bill Gates and phony Tony Fauci. Already, Dr. Fauci’s emails confirm his guilt…

This is the State of Our Union’s Civics – A National Disaster

We’re heatedly divided by politics and race on the issue of CRT being taught to our children. But remember, CRT isn’t being taught as a competing theory against other theories, nor are the downsides of CRT articulated in lesson plans. Critical Race Theory is being presented as FACT! It is presented as a TRUTH about America that Whites have kept buried, silent and absent from American history and American Civics…
