Traditional Bedouin tents are made out of black goat hair. The Bedouin term for tent is buryuut hajar, which literally means "house of hair."

Stardate 0141.7: after almost 200 years of successful service, in the Terran year 2155 it was decided to once again upgrade the engines in the B-52H to ensure many further decades of operations. Block 117-85 specifications skipped completely over the previous plan to replace each dual-engine pod with single turbofans and instead removed the wing pylons completely, installing a pair of new space/warp propulsion units designed for a future heavy cruiser class. Rumors swirled that the BUFFs were so good at their jobs that the Constitution class was close to outright cancelation, but in the end the demand for better crew quarters and replicators won out. BUFFs remained in active service until well past the end of the Dominion War, and served valiantly at the Battle of Wolf 359.

Why historians believe Cinco de Mayo prevented the Confederacy's win in the Civil War

https://www.insider.com/how-cinco-de-mayo-prevented-the-confederacys-win-in-the-civil-war-2022-5

French Emperor Napoleon III had planned to trade weapons for cotton with Confederate states during France's invasion of Mexico.

However, Mexico's resolve at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 prevented France from supplying weapons to the Confederacy during the Civil War.

France retreated to Veracruz for a year giving the Union Army enough time to rack up victories against the Confederacy and end the war in 1865.


On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French in the Battle of Puebla. This prevented French Emperor Napoleon III from supplying weapons to the Confederacy during the Civil War. Napoleon III had planned to trade weapons for cotton with the Confederate states during France's invasion of Mexico. But upon arriving at combat, the French found that they were unprepared to battle the resolve of the Mexican army.
