Recollections of Leslie Lamond Bunnell Sr.

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

Recollections of Leslie Lamond Bunnell Sr. by his son, L. Lamond Bunnell in 1972. (1) Black Hawk and his band came for years after (the horse incident-see Recollections of Stephen Ithamer Bunnell Sr. by his grandson, L. Lamond Bunnell in 1972 # 4) and the Old Chief had gained quite a reputation as a wrestler in the old type side-hold, and boasted that he had broken the collar bone of three white man near Blackfoot, Idaho. One evening, Uncle Sam (Samuel Emery Bunnell), my father’s next older brother, was listening to the old Chief brag. Uncle Sam spoke up and said he had had an eighteen-year-old brother (my father) who could throw the chief. Of course, the Chief was eager to show his prowess. My dad was scared stiff but there was no way out. The old Chief took off his robe and held up his arms to give Dad the choice of holds. The under hold was considered the best. Side wrestling has no connection with the present type of mayhem, grunt and groan ballyhoo that we see today. In the side wrestle the Chief did, when a man’s knee touched the ground, it was a fall for the other man. It was as simple as that, so the holds were very important. Dad took the under hold, dug his finger nails into the old Indians greasy flesh and was lucky enough to get a hip lock and threw the Chief for the first fall. Then Dad held up his arms and gave the Chief the choice of holds. The Chief took the under hold but again Dad’s quickness stood him in good stead and he was able to get fall number two. Then the Chief raised his arms and Dad took the under hold. He threw the Chief for the third time. The Chief got up, put on his robe and grunted and said, “Heap big white man!”

Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 19 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.

Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 70 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
