Recollections of Leslie Lamond Bunnell Sr.

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years 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!”

Life timeline of Leslie Lamond Bunnell

Leslie Lamond Bunnell was born on 26 Aug 1869
Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 8 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
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 24 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 34 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 43 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 59 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer.

As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Leslie Lamond Bunnell was 70 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people.
