All of these terms are used in a vaguely interchangeable manner and generally refer to rifles being made during the Federal Period, or through approximately The majority of the rifles referenced, when referring to this school, are attributable to a relatively small handful of men: Johannes John Moll Sr. There are of course other gunmaking families within the region which of course factor quite prominently – the Young’s at Easton, Stoffil Long, the Hess family in the northwest corner of the county, Henry Hunsicker etc.
It is for this reason, I believe, that the school is often identified by varying and quite contrary names. It is the fact that these men were all working in a relatively small area in and around Allentown that has bestowed the title “Allentown” school upon their rifles and others, perhaps unsigned examples of their work or unsigned examples of unknown gunmakers’ hands, like them. The use of the “Lehigh Valley” terminology is likewise a generic term which owes it’s existence entirely to the presence of the Lehigh River bisecting a portion of old Northampton County, Allentown sitting squarely on the banks of the Lehigh River and thus linking the work of these men with the coincidental existence of the River.
Applying the title “Lehigh County school” to these rifles is a fairly accurate means of description, as Lehigh County was formed from a portion of Northampton County in and coincidentally happens to perfectly encompass the Molls, the Rupps and Neihart. However, it has been often pointed out that by the time Lehigh County was formed in , the high-point of design and construction of these rifles had already passed: For example, an extremely fine signed Neihart rifle is dated , two spectacular rifles by Herman Rupp are dated and and two of the finest pieces of the region in my opinion by Johannes Moll must have been constructed prior to his death in So, it would appear that the best work of this small area was being undertaken while Lehigh County was still part of old Northampton County.

The northwest portion of Mexico, called Baja California, is separated from the rest of the nation by the Gulf of California. The Sierra Madre, an extension of the Rocky Mountain chain, divides into the Oriental range to the east and the Occidental range to the west. The central highlands, where the majority of Mexico’s 75 million people live, lies in between these two mountain systems.
Overall, Mexico occupies , square miles. Over time, these early peoples built highly organized civilizations, such as the Olmec, Teotihuacan, Mayan, Toltec, Zapotec, Mixtec, and Aztec societies, the majority of which were accomplished in art, architecture, mathematics, astronomy, and agriculture. For the next years, Mexico, or New Spain, would remain under colonial rule. Spain’s generally repressive colonial regime stifled the growth of commerce and industry, monitored or censored the dissemination of new and possibly revolutionary ideas, and limited access to meaningful political power to anyone but nativeborn Spaniards.
An unequal distribution of land and wealth developed and, as the nation grew in numbers, the disproportion between the rich and poor continued to increase, as did a sense of social unrest among the most neglected of its populace. Their discontent resulted in a successful revolt against Spain in Mining was revitalized and foreign trade increased. Dynamic growth brought relative prosperity to many economic sectors of various regions of the country, complemented by increased levels of employment.
As the century ended, however, a vast majority of the nations’s inhabitants had realized little if any improvement in their standard of living. Those residing in rural areas struggled to produce enough to survive from their own small parcels of land, or, much more likely, worked under a debt-peonage system, farming lands owned by someone infinitely wealthier than they were.

Correspondingly, the climate of tiny Slovenia is Mediterranean along the Adriatic Sea, alpine in the mountains, and continental Central European in the plains. Bordering on Italy to the west, Austria to the north, Hungary to the east, and Croatia to the south, Slovenia has a population of just a little over two million.
In , about 92 percent of the population are Slovenians. Roman Catholicism is the predominant religion.

Previous page Laceyville Originally known as Braintrim see above and Skinner’s Eddy see below , the area for a couple centuries was a camping grounds for Indians of the Tuscarora tribe. When the Laceyville toll bridge was completed across the Susquehanna in , the fare was five cents for pedestrians and 25 cents for horses. Lackawanna Means “the stream that forks,” and the fork in question is the confluence of the Lackawanna River with the northern branch of the Susquehanna.
Lackawanna County was once part of Luzerne County, and the breakoff did not come easy. The first rumblings of secession were heard in the s, some 20 years after Bradford and Susquehanna counties had broken off, due mainly to the impracticalities, not to mention the social regression, of having to travel to Wilkes-Borough to transact official business.
When suggestions started floating about that another northern chunk of Luzerne County wanted to break off, the PTB powers-that-be of Wilkes-Borough became alarmed, so they developed a two-point scheme. One, they agreed to the breakoff and formation of Wyoming County, centered around Tunkhannock, throwing as it were a bone to folks clamoring for more self rule. Wyoming County was viewed as offering relatively little in terms of financial value. Two, and this is the slimy part, Luzerne County decided to stack the deck: Prospects for the formation of a new county called Lackawanna must have seemed doomed.
But a unique development occurred in as Pennsylvania established a new constitution: Lackawanna County was now free to call its own shots, and in did just that: This same type of shenanigans would occur many years later as the Avoca airport was named backwards by a dubious legislative mechanism initiated in Washington by congressman Dan “Mr.
