HISTORY – BATTLE OF THE BOGSIDE For 3 days in August 1969 the district of Derry known as the Bogside was catapulted onto the world stage as local people resisted attempts by the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) to breach barricades that had been erected in defence of the area. In the previous 11 months the RUC had clashed with local residents on numerous occasions as the Nationalist residents of the Bogside aligned themselves behind the Civil Rights Movement and in opposition to the Northern Ireland Government and its agents. In January and April 1969 the RUC had 'invaded' the Bogside and carried out acts of wanton destruction on property and persons. Sammy Devenny died as a result of a beating administered by the RUC in his own home in April 1969 and as the annual August Apprentice Boys parade approached tensions rose. This march by thousands of Apprentice Boys and their supporters through Derry city centre and past the edge of the Bogside was considered highly provocative by the Nationalists of the city. Plans were prepared in the Bogside to try to prevent confrontation between local people, the RUC and marchers but if this failed defence plans were also drawn up. On August 10th, the Derry Citizens Defence Association (DCDA), which had been established in July 1969 to plan for the defence of the Bogside in August, and which included senior republicans, met senior figures in the Apprentice Boys Association. The DCDA asked the Apprentice Boys to cancel or reroute the march. This request was refused. On the same day the DCDA held a public meeting in Celtic Park which was addressed by Republican, Nationalist and Labour leaders in the city. The mood at the meeting has been described as defiant and speakers made clear their intentions- if the RUC or loyalists sought to enter the Bogside resistance would be offered. That evening women and children in areas that were considered vulnerable were evacuated to safer areas of the city. That night the erection of barricades on the edge of the Bogside began. On August 12, as the Apprentice Boys began their parade tension filled the air and reports of the day speak of a great sense of foreboding throughout the city. As thousands of Apprentice Boys and their supporters marched past Waterloo Place on the edge of the Bogside, lines of RUC men faced Nationalist youths. Stewards and Nationalist leaders, including John Hume and Eddie McAteer, attempted to control the crowd but their efforts ended in failure; inevitably, it appears with hindsight, confrontation began with jeering and cat calling and within a short space of time the first stones were thrown at the RUC. The RUC remained in their positions at Waterloo Place for some hours without responding but serious rioting also broke out at Sackville Street, further along the Strand Road between the RUC, supported by Unionists, and Nationalists. After approximately three hours the order was given for the RUC to charge from Little James Street and Waterloo Place towards Rossville Street, with the intention of driving the Nationalists back into the Bogside. This initial onslaught was repulsed at a barricade at the mouth of William Street and a standoff commenced. This stalemate is broken at 7.00p.m. that evening when the RUC, supported by Unionists, breach the barricade and rampage up Rossville Street breaking house windows as they go. The Bogsiders retreat, then turn, and drive the RUC back down to the mouth of Rossville Street. Under pressure to contain the situation the RUC begin using CS gas, the first occasion such an indiscriminate weapon has been used in the United Kingdom jurisdiction. Prior to authorising the use of CS gas the Stormont Minister of Home Affairs, Robert Porter, is alleged to have administered a dose to himself. Over the next 2 days 1,091 canisters, and 14 grenades of gas were fired into the Bogside. Local people responded, after receiving advice from Red Mole in London, by soaking handkerchiefs in vinegar & water. Reports are divided as to the effectiveness of this antidote. The RUC also use stones, and on occasion petrol bombs. Within the Bogside first-aid posts are set up by Drs Donal McDermott and Raymond McClean. They are staffed by Knights of Malta volunteers. During the Battle of the Bogside local first aid facilities dealt with almost 1,000 casualties. Local doctors, nurses, first aid volunteers and the Knights of Malta based themselves at the Candy Corner shop in Westland Street. This shop, which lacked running water and the most basic medical supplies, served as the medical headquarters for the Bogside until it was evacuated in the early hours of 14th August as CS gas began to make the centre intolerable. Staff at this centre coped with injuries including; exposure to CS gas, lacerations, impact injuries from gas canisters and gunshot injuries. Many of the more seriously injured, refused to visit Altnagelvin Hospital through fear of the RUC and were transferred across t

Crescent Hotel 1886
The 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa has a rich and fascinating history. Read about some of the earliest accounts from these stories taken from the Eureka Springs Times Echo, one of Eureka Springs' early newspapers which is still in existence today and some fascinating information on Dr. Norman Baker, one time owner of the Crescent Hotel who ran a "Cancer Hospital" in his "Castle in the Air". 1886 - 1901 The "Carriage Set" "For the first 15 years after its grand opening, The Crescent Hotel was operated by The Eureka Springs Improvement Company as an exclusive year-round resort hotel catering to the carriage set. During those Victorian Years, the years of grandeur, the gracious southern hospitality of the Crescent Hotel became well known." "A stable with a hundred sleek-coated horses was provided for the guests' riding pleasure on early morning canters over the trails. Often as many as 75 riders could be seen making their way along some remote mountain trail - the ladies in their long skirts, hats and veils, mounted fashionably on sidesaddles while the gentlemen were gallantly astride mounts with English saddles." "Visitors could enjoy tea dances during the afternoon and dance parties each evening with music provided with an in-house orchestra maintained by the hotel. Other forms of recreating available to the guest included picnics, hiking, streetcar rides, and the ever-popular Tallyho rides to Sanitarium Lake or some other attraction locale. The Tally Ho was a large open coach drawn by teams of four, six or eight horses." Pure Hoax: The Norman Baker Story By Stephen Spence In the spring of 1930 John Tunis's wife Lula was dying of cancer. In his private moments he must have alternately begged God not to take his wife and cursed him for letting her suffer such a cruel end. By the end of May, Lula was running out of time. John placed her and their dwindling hopes in the hands of a man named Norman Baker. They prayed he could provide the cure that the medical establishment could not.

America's Newest and Most Luxurious Hotel built at a cost of $294,000 Eureka Springs Times Echo - May 20, 1886 It was two years ago that Powell Clayton and his associates chose the site of the new Crescent Hotel.. twenty seven acres at the north end of West mountain, a majestic location overlooking the valley. The commissioning of Isaac Taylor as architect was announced and construction commenced. Seldom has such a formidable construction undertaking been accomplished with such efficiency. Special wagons were constructed to transport the huge pieces of magnesium limestone from the quarry site on the White River near Beaver. Due to the density of this special stone, and the precision necessary in cutting and fitting, a group of specialist from Ireland was brought here to assist and advise in construction. Mr. O'Shawnessey, the spokesman and leader of the imported group, was interviewed by this reporter before his return to Ireland. We recall that "Throughout the many years of his stoneworking, he has never encountered a stone with such density and quality as the White River Limestone". He predicts it will become a popular building stone in the future and further stated that because of its unique characteristics, the eighteen inch thick walls of the Crescent, fitted without the use of mortar, would withstand the destructive forces of time and retain its original beauty for many years to come. The magnificent structure was then furnished in the most exquisite manner. It is lighted with Edison lamps, furnished with electric bells, heated with steam and open grates, has a hydraulic elevator, and is truly a showplace of today's conveniences. Crescent Hotel - Perched on the crest of the Ozark mountains, this resort hotel in the old tradition is surrounded b
