    Panteón de Marinos Ilustres

    PANTEÓN DE MARINOS ILUSTRES. Concebido en principio como iglesia de la Purísima Concepción, el Panteón de Marinos Ilustres es un edificio de estilo neoclásico ubicado dentro del recinto de la Población militar de San Carlos en San Fernando (Cádiz). Como su nombre indica es el lugar de eterno reposo de numerosos marinos ilustres españoles. Su construcción se inició en el siglo XVIII, durante el reinado de Carlos III, siendo acabadas sus obras en pleno siglo XX debido principalmente a problemas de financiación y también políticos. Hoy día, forma parte de la Escuela de Suboficiales de la Armada. En la fachada principal dos cañones de 36 pulgadas del navío Santísima Trinidad flanquean la entrada. Los mejores días para visitar son sábado y domingo de 10.30 a 13.30 horas. Por supuesto visita más que recomendable. MARINOS ENTERRADOS U HOMENAJEADOS (pongo los más célebres). .

    Cut PB Timer cost

    No, PvP marks must be for PvP rewards or other needs. I agree with you that you should not pay for the PB timer, it is more than enough the 100,000 gold a day plus the tax for the goods sold. If they want to keep the 500,000 daily that substantially raise the money earned in combat orders. It does not make any sense to be encouraged to conquer ports and then have to abandon them because we can not keep them because of their high cost. And if the PB timer exists, it is because in European time, as in other latitudes, we can not defend the ports at the wee hours of the morning.

    And the book, surely the best war novel of all time. If someone has not read it, I highly recommend it. Ideal to read now in the summer holidays. Great Tom Clancy.

    Historia, siempre con mayúsculas. Si te refieres a que la Historia la escriben los vencedores, te diré que no siempre es así. El Almirante Hyman Rickover dirigió una investigación honesta en la que pone las cosas en su sitio con el asunto de la explosión del Maine. Y es del bando vencedor. En todos lados hay gente honesta, amante de la verdad, es por ello que a la larga siempre acaba saliendo a la luz la justicia histórica, por muchos años que pasen.

    O cuando le dijeron al Gobierno de España que en caso de guerra con Marruecos los F-18A ni tocarlos. También nos hicieron regalitos, concretamente 4 en Palomares. No se te olvide el Buchón. Un pájaro maravilloso.

    Remembering MICROPROSE.

    Hello everyone.I do not know about you but I miss MICROPROSE a lot. I grew up playing his simulators back in the 80's. I remember the quality of their games and also and not least the quality of their instruction manuals. I have the manual of the B17 Flying Fortress on hand and it is a delight. Games like COLONIZATION, FIELDS OF GLORY etc. They taught History. You learned from them.As the great Winston Churchill said about the bravery of the RAF pilots: "So much owed by so many to so few". This can also apply to MICROPROSE. Good weekend to everyone. 🙂We begin. And many more.....

    Hay un libro muy interesante sobre el tema llamado ESPAÑA Y LA INDEPENDENCIA DE ESTADOS UNIDOS escrito por Thomas E. Chávez. 424 páginas, Editorial TAURUS. Se habla también de la contribución española a las 13 colonias en materia de provisiones, dinero y apoyo directo en la guerra, ya que en todo el Imperio español se reclutaron soldados que lucharon por la independencia de las colonias, aspecto éste que corrige una importante omisión histórica e ilumina un área prácticamente desconocida de la historiografía española y estadounidense. Gracias SirAlatriste por recordarnos en el dia de hoy que LOS NUESTROS también estuvieron ahí y tuvieron su mejor momento.

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas(Seville, 1474 - Madrid, 1566) Spanish religious, defender of the rights of the indigenous people at the beginning of the colonization of America. Moved by the abuses of the Spanish settlers towards the Indians and by the gradual extinction of these, Bartolomé de Las Casas undertook a campaign since then to defend the human rights of the Indians; to set an example, he began by renouncing himself to the encomienda granted him by the governor of Cuba, denouncing the Castilian institution as a form of covert slavery of the Indians (1514). The ideas of Las Casas were echoed in the metropolis, where around 1540 the debate broke out over the titles with which Spain exercised dominion over the Indies. The revision of the Indian legislation dates from the same period, with the adoption of the so-called New Laws (1542-43), in which some Lascasian points of view were reflected: the consideration of the Indians as free men who could not be enslaved nor submitted to painful work and the prohibition of creating new encomiendas, dissolving immediately those of ecclesiastics and royal officials. That is the abuse and violence of the Spaniards on the American Indians. Protected by law their rights as people since the mid-sixteenth century. Of course there were abuses among the Spanish colonizers towards the indigenous people, something that has always been denounced, but it is already well of black legend. By the way Cabral, Portugal was one of the countries that more slaves took from Africa to Portugal and later to the New World. Do not want to get out on a tangent.

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    Stolen?. Evidently you do not know the History of Humanity. Empires there have been a thousand, starting with Mesopotamia to the current Economic Empire that dominates the world. If this is not worth it, I will tell you that through Spain passed Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims and the last empire that passed through Spain the French Empire of Napoleon. And we have not accused any of robbing us. Simplicely we know that for good or bad, this is how the History of Humanity has been made. By the way, those you say "stolen" were also empires that "stole" other peoples of America. Who is free from guilt, who throws the first Stone.
