Breed history It is not known where the Barb horse developed; some believe the breed originated in northern Africa during the 8th century, about the time that Islamic invaders reached the region. There is controversy over whether the Barb and Arabian (Arabian horse) horses share a common ancestor, or if the Arabian was a predecessor of the Barb. Native horses of the region may have been influenced by the crossing of "oriental" breeds, including the Arabian horse, Turkmenian (Turkmenistan) or Akhal-Teke, and Caspian horse (Caspian Pony), with Iberian horses brought back from Europe by the Moorish invaders after they conquered southern Spain. Nissen, Jasper, ''The Young Specialist Looks At Horses''. London: Burke Publishing Co. Ltd, 1963, p. 46. Today the several varieties of Barb include the Algerian, Moroccan, and Tunisian.

Clavijo sailed through the Mediterranean, passing Majorca, Sicily and Rhodes to Constantinople. Using modern names for the countries through which he passed, Clavijo sailed along the Black Sea coast of Turkey to Trabzon and then overland through Armenia, Iran and Turkmenistan to Uzbekistan. He visited Tehran, Persia (Iran), in 1404. The original intention was to meet with Timur at his winter pasturage in what is now modern Georgia (Georgia (country)), but due to foul weather conditions and a shipwreck, the embassy was forced to return to Constantinople and spend the winter of 1403-1404 there. * Wikipedia:Turkmenistan Dmoz:Regional Asia Turkmenistan commons:category:Turkmenistan

In the 18th century, Alberto Fortis visited the Morlachs and found that they sang beautiful verses of epic poetry related to the Turkish occupation of Serbian Kosovo. They sang the verses along with the traditional single stringed instrument called gusle goo-slae . This poetry was collected by the Scottish man-of-letters Lord Bute, who was close to King George III. In 1943 a number of Albanians from Kosovo and the Sandžak region were recruited into the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar (1st Croatian). They were used to form Battalion I 2 (later I 28) and received first rate training in southern France and Neuhammer, Germany. This was perhaps the best trained and equipped Nazi Albanian military formation during the war and was transferred directly from combat in Bosnia to Kosovo via rail on 17 April 1944 to form part of the newly created SS ''Skanderbeg'' division.

In February 1944 the decision was taken, following the modest success of SS ''Handschar'' in Bosnia, to raise a parallel unit inside Albania. According to Bernd Fischer, the Division included 1500 Pows, "natives of Kosovo who had served in the Yugoslav army, plus remnants of the failed Albanian army and gendarmerie, volunteers from both old and new Albania." Bernd Jurgen Fischer "Albania at War", page.185 Xhafer Deva, an Albanian from Kosovo and periodically the Interior Minister under the Nazi puppet regime, helped with recruitment. The Division was called ''SS Skënderbeu'' in Albanian (Albanian language). The Division participated in the Wehrmacht Operation "Fuchsjagd", known to the Communists as the "Battle of Debar", over 18 to 27 August 1944 (during the first week of Ramadan). The Division fought alongside Albanian government soldiers, tribal bands from the Roman Catholic Mirdita clan, an Albanian (Albanians) nationalist ''četa'' from Debar itself and approximately 800 men from Colonel Abaz Kupi's Zogist-Legality (Royalist) faction. The town of Debar was not captured and the campaign against Communist partisans in central Albania was a failure, only leading to further desertions. The only other action partaken was assisting the orderly Wehrmacht withdrawal over October to November 1944. Over 700 men of this SS Division, along with approximately 5000 local Kosovo-Albanians recruited by Xhafer Deva, aided the Germans evacuating through Kosovo and resisted incursions by both Communist partisans and Bulgarian incursions.

Though little is known for certain about ripsaw's genesis, two major theories include that the instrument was played to imitate the sound of the güiro, a Dominican (Dominican Republic) and Haiti percussion instrument, and that Loyalist (Loyalist (American Revolution)) colonists in the United States brought their African slaves to the islands and these slaves invented the ripsaw to imitate the sound of the shekere instrument. In 1921, Lady Davis rose in rank to become the fourth assistant President-General of the UNIA-ACL.

'''Pico Duarte''' is the highest peak in all the Caribbean islands. It lies in the Cordillera Central (Cordillera Central, Dominican Republic) range, the greatest of the Dominican Republic's mountain chains. The Cordillera Central extends from the plains between San Cristóbal (San Cristóbal, Dominican Republic) and Baní to the northwestern peninsula of Haiti, where it is known as Massif du Nord. The highest elevations of the Cordillera Central are found in the Pico Duarte and Valle Nuevo massifs. Duarte's father was Juan José Duarte, from Vejer de la Frontera, Cadiz, Spain, and his mother was Manuela Díez Jiménez from El Seybo. She was the daughter of a Spanish (Spanish people) father and Dominican mother. In 1802 Duarte and Jiménez emigrated from Santo Domingo to Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. www.colonialzone-dr.com They were evading the imposition of French (France) rule over Santo Domingo. This transformation of the island's colonial experience became apparent the previous year, when Toussaint Louverture, governor of Saint Domingue (now Haiti), a colony of France located on the western third of Hispaniola, took control of Santo Domingo, located on the island's eastern two-thirds. At the time, France and Saint Domingue were going through exhaustive social movements, namely, the French Revolution and the Haitian Revolution. In occupying the Spanish side of the island the legendary Black governor was following the indications accorded by the governments of France and Spain in the Peace of Basel signed in 1795, which had given the Spanish area to France. ''General Greene'' remained off San Domingo for the following six months. In company with WikiPedia:Haiti Dmoz:Regional Caribbean Haiti Commons:Category:Haiti
