EDITOR NOTE: This edition was hard on all of us as it stoked so many raw and still fresh wounds that are a legacy of having been there as a mere Pup…I doubted that I could get Emil to give you the full story – which I truly believe should be told as it is a good story and would answer a lot of questions on how we all came together. <br />But, Claudie is long gone as is my friend Kurt. Emil and I have turned into two very old, grumpy men and Mimmie is a grand mother three times over…not married to Emil but, rather to that German Officer she met in Northern France in 1942. <br />Don’t ask…please…Emil still cries…and cares little for the German Side of his family…or most Germans for that manner although, he and Kurt were true friends back in the days after the war…Kurt threw a lot of work and opportunities our way through his connects with The French Colonial Officials in French IndoChina.<br />In Emil tradition…you will only get bits and pieces and as it is Emil’s terrible habit, Emil leaves us all to connect the dots…piece together the story. Emil claims that it makes a much better story once the readers realize that this is a create your own adventure….See! This is what happens when you actually ask Emil!<br /><br />CAMPERS! BANDOTOS AND FELLOW TRAVELERS!<br />The Great War was only referred by that term from people who were nowhere near the war and for all of their grand talk about supporting the troops...few if any of the educated, enlightened supported the troops enough to join their ranks...<br />The new cannon folder came streaming out of the shithole factories in the Midlands as eager volunteers – out of a life where anything was better than the 14-hour-days they had been slaving away at for as little as pennies per hour.<br />This was seen as a God sent to tens of thousands of helpless factory folder and was the only chance…the only bone that had ever been thrown to them…it was a way to chance luck and future by volunteering for this great, grand adventure and we will all be back home anyway with even greater stories to tell in the pubs and maybe a shot at a career in the Colonial Services…at least, that was what they told us, “No later than Christmas Eve!”<br />This convincing storyline swayed whole families to cheer and encourage their men to abandon family, children and scolding wives and in the effort, they even convinced themselves that they weren’t just escaping the reality of a hard life and an early death from working those 14-hour days and that instead of escaping to a grand adventure, they were going for “GOD, King and Country!”<br />

The picturesque images and steadfast spirit of small-town America thrive within Bristol. One need only to look along its tree-lined streets and centuries-old waterfront and into its historic homes and buildings to see the romance of Rhode Island's past mingling with its present. Heritage and tradition, especially its long-running celebrations of the Fourth of July, are essential in understanding the character and identity of this little town on the bay.<P>Bristol: Montaup to Poppasquash takes readers on a unique journey through the community's past, beginning with the voyages of early Norse explorers and detailing major events that shaped the town's history, including the King Philip's War, the Revolutionary War, and a variety of other military conflicts that took local men and women away from their homes. Not only evoking memories of yesteryear, this compelling illustrated history explores the evolving personality of Bristol over the passing decades, from its days as a small fishing village and a haven for privateers to its present status as a premier boat-building center.
