"this divide can be traced back to divides that were found in Britain as different British sub-groups migrated to different colonies.

Ye! Gads! ancient unresolved conflicts in England fueling the fire of unresolved conflicts in the Colonies! Will their fight never end? 

Why was the Colonial north in such strong support of anti-slavery and the Colonial south so pro-slavery? Did that dispute start the Great Britain?

One reason for that Idiot taking power here in the USA 

https://qr.ae/pN2Aot

There has always been a cultural divide between the North and the South of the U.S. In fact, this divide can be traced back to divides that were found in Britain as different British sub-groups migrated to different colonies.

In New England you had a largely puritan or separatist population that disproportionately sampled from middle-class East Anglia.

In the middle colonies (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware) you had largely Quaker populations from the North and Midlands of England as well as Palatinate Germans fleeing the religious wars of their region.

At the western boundaries of pretty much all of the middle and southern colonies, along the Appalachian mountains, you had lower class Scots-Irish migrants, many of whom were former indenture servants.

In the South you had a lot of Southern Anglican Cavaliers, Gentry, and their indentured servants. As time passed chattel slavery started to cement and replace the drudge system.

The book Albion's Seed goes into the details of how these “folkways" were rooted in Britain and how many were probably a thousand years old at the point in which they expanded into the different American colonies.

Compare the map above to a map of the sides of the English Civil War.

Many were sold off to Garden centres who then passed them on to the public for great Mark up prices.

The ones in the photos are not connected to the water supply. Just for the tourists.

They look clean & well kept.

I took a couple of pictures of the horse troughs nearby my building. At one time there used to be hundreds all over London especially when horses were regularly used. Now there are still some spotted about the city, the charity that started them still looks after the few that are left as well as drinking fountains.

Doone, this site rings alp kinds of bells for me, the long-range perception of history and how it impacts modern thought. We can't overlook the role religion plays of our ancient past and into the Modern Age. Remembering our histories and understanding the influences of power and learned helplessness offers an opportunity for understanding and even compassion for groups and individuals faced with their realities.

Remembering also gives us an opportunity to create better ways of living together in civil society. Religion, nationalism, economics, education, healthcare, and politics, all influence thought and action. 

Let's think of how we can reduce violence and increase critical thinking in the community.
