The Bloody Benders 1870-1872

In the wake of the civil war many Americans headed west away from burnt cities and battlefields. If they happened to stop by The Inn in Kansas City they encountered the Bender Clan and taking their lives into their own hands. The Benders were Germanic with the “children” speaking with an accent and the “parents” speaking barely any English. They settled in 1870 Kansas and started the Inn and that is all that is known about their history. John Sr was 60, Ma Bender was 55, John Jr. was 25 and Kate 23. Their true relationship will most likely never be revealed since they were believed to not even be blood related. 

The guests were often set up at a table with a trap door beneath them. The men were blugened and their throats slit. Then they were dropped through the trap door and robbed and stripped of their belongings. 

In 1872 the bodies began to pile up and a local tribe was blamed. But when the neighbor of a man disappeared he launched a full fledged investigation. When the Benders were suspected they vanished. A search of a cabin revealed a room underneath the cabin that had blood everywhere and 9 dead bodies. The final count is unknown. No one knows whatever happened to the Bloody Benders.

Caravaggio (September 29, 1571 - July 18, 1610)

There was art before him and art after him, and they were not the same.

Armor
India, 18th centuryHelmet: steel, silver leaf, engraved and gilt decoration; Mail-coat: silver, copper, brass; lining: velvet, copper nails;Arm-pieces: steel, silver leaf; lining: velvet, chased and gilt decoration;Corselet: steel; silver leaf, chased and gilt decoration; lining: velvet

It is often difficult to distinguish Safavid arms and armor from those used in Mughal India. The two empires had strong cultural links, and there was considerable circulation of objects and artisans between the two regions. A reliable attribution can often only be made on the basis of inscriptions or typical decorative elements. The armor presented here exemplifies a type found in both India and Iran but the “lattice and blossom” decoration is typically Indian. If they were to be able to charge, stop to fight, and retreat while harassing the enemy with volleys of arrows, the cavalry needed to be as mobile and light as possible. This requirement is revealed in their protective armor, for although it provided a high level of protection, it was not heavy, and did not weigh them down or impede their movements. Indian and Persian armor was very flexible. Only the most important parts of the body – the chest and other areas exposed to blows (the forearms and the head for example) – were heavily protected by plate armor, which was decorated on the outside, and lined with textile inside.
