Ever since I moved to Melbourne I 've wanted to visit the Old Melbourne Gaol. One of Melbourne 's oldest architectural buildings right at the heart of Melbourne 's CBD, situated on Russell Street, only minutes walk from the train station and one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Our experience at the Old Gaol started by getting arrested at the 1990s City Watch House. The Watch House Experience lasted for approximately forty minutes, one of the most interactive and engaging experiences I 've had in a museum. We had a female Charge Sergeant as a guide, who made the visitors experience so real.
The Overland Campaign was a decisive moment in the Civil War: it was a strategic victory for the Union, but consisted of heavy losses on both sides. In just 40 days, the Union lost 55,000 men. The Confederates lost 36,000 men, but with an army roughly half of the Union’s to begin with, their losses were proportionally much greater. The final battle of the campaign, Cold Harbor, led to extremely high losses on both sides, but was a defensive victory for Lee. Anti-war sentiments grew in the North and Grant was labeled “the butcher.” Despite the high losses, Grant knew this is what had to happen in order to achieve the North’s strategic objectives in the war.
Antoine Walker lost his $110 million to wild, extravagant living. His NBA championship ring was sold at auction and he had to declare bankruptcy nearly half decade ago. James is still earning money, just sold a $13.4 million mansion in Florida, owns a 30,000 square foot mega mansion in Ohio, and just bought a $21 million vacation home in Brentwood. Hopefully he has a better backup plan for retirement than Walker did, because Antoine Walker once had homes and goods like that, too. Yet, two years after he left the NBA, Walked filed for bankruptcy.

The original grandstand had been rebuilt after the track fell into some financial troubles, despite the success of the first derby. The new grandstand was designed under William F. Schlute who became the president of the newly incorporated New Louisville Jockey Club during 1894, taking Clark’s spot; Clark still remained as the head judge of the racetrack. The new grandstand would stand on the opposite side of the track and had an estimated cost of $100,000. Joseph Dominic Baldez, a 24-year-old draftsman, was appointed to draw the blueprints for the new grandstand, and the original design did not incorporate the Twin Spires. It was not until later as Baldez had been going through many designs that he decided to put the Twin Spires along the rooftop because he thought the new grandstand needed a more “striking appearance.” When they were designed, however, they were not called the Twin Spires rather just towers; the Kentucky Derby website details the original design, “the hexagonal spires exemplify late 19th century architecture, in which symmetry and balance took precedence over function.” Now the Twin Spires cannot be missed they are a true staple of Churchill Downs, and they are featured in the Churchill Downs’ logo.
