Native of Poland Kazimir Pulawski (1745-1779) for a relatively short life managed to fight to his heart's content both at home and overseas, and in the latter case, he became a general at all and was named "the father of the American cavalry".
In Europe, Pulawski miraculously survived in a clash with Suvorov's detachment, acting on the side of the Bar Confederation, showed himself as a talented commander during the defense of Czestochowa in 1770-1771, and after the defeat of the Confederates he was forced to flee first to Turkey and then to France.
In France, Pulawski received an invitation from Benjamin Franklin himself to side with the Americans in the war of independence and accepted it. In September 1777, he joined George Washington's forces shortly before the Battle of Brandywine.
Over the next two years of battles, he gained fame as a brave and fearless warrior, but in October 1779 he was mortally wounded, opposing the French at Savannah in Georgia, and died two days later.
In the centuries that followed, there was controversy about whether the remains of Casimir Pulawski were actually in the honorary burial at Monterey Square in Savannah, as there were rumors that he was buried elsewhere. To put an end to the rumors, in 1996, the remains from the square were dug up and a forensic medical examination was carried out.
The nature of the wound on the skull completely coincided with the description of the wound received by Pulawski in battle, so the remains apparently belonged to him. Also, the age of the skeleton coincided with the age of the general.
But then, during the examination, it was revealed that the skeleton of Pulawski has many … female features. According to one of the assumptions, he could be a hermaphrodite.
The remains of Pulawski were reburied in 2005, but the mystery of his strange skeleton still haunts researchers. Recently, scientists from the University of South Georgia announced that they studied DNA from samples of Pulawski's bones and according to the results, he, most likely, was biologically a woman.
A documentary about this discovery, titled "The General Was Female?" aired last week on the Smithsonian Channel in America's Hidden Stories.
The researchers stated that Pulawski probably had an abnormality called Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which affects the production of the steroid hormone.
Due to the increased production of this hormone, the female genitals are deformed and may appear similar to the male, however the subject remains female in all other respects and his skeleton is also female.
In Pulawski's skeleton, the pelvis was more extended, like in women, and the facial bones of the skull and jaws were also formed according to the female type.
The researchers also compared the DNA of the remains with the DNA of one of Pulawski's living relatives, and it confirmed that these were the remains of a heroic Pole (or now rather a Polish woman).
An indirect proof of the correct conclusions is also the fact that Kazimir Puławski was never married and had no children. He also did not have any relations with women, although he did have a long love correspondence with a certain girlfriend.
When a resident of Boston (USA) Mikey Chanel was born, he looked like the most ordinary boy, his genitals in appearance were completely male and normally developed. However, from early childhood he felt that something was wrong with him and that his physical gender was not correct. He was more attracted to girls and he behaved, in his words, very "effeminate". Because of this, other children often teased and hurt him. At the age of 13, Mikey decided that it was all because of the fact that he was gay and on this, to
This video probably captured the moment of instant teleportation (see video below). It seems that it is simply impossible to explain the sudden appearance of a person right in the middle of the road in another way. This was filmed in the Chinese province of Jilin on February 9, 2019. First, we see a white SUV driving quietly down the highway. At the same time, there are no people on the road, and there are also no those who are preparing to cross the road (paranormal-news.ru) Suddenly the car swerves sharply to the right and we see the reason for this
While the Chinese are launching navigation satellites, sending astronauts into near space, dreaming of flights to the Moon, the Celestial Empire may already be mastered by aliens. It's hard to believe, but judging by the publication of the Chinese newspaper China Daily, in China, which in three decades managed to perform an economic miracle, anything can happen. The hero of an incredible story was a simple Chinese peasant Meng Zhaogo from the northeastern province of Heilongjiang. He claims that at one time he was kidnapped by a flown in
Researchers at the John Innes Center have found that a plant known as Scutellaria baicalensis, which is used in traditional Chinese medicine, produces substances that can help fight liver cancer and disease. The research is published in the journal Science Advances. Previous studies have shown that organic substances in the roots of the plant, called flavones, have not only antiviral and antioxidant effects, but also
Recently discovered geological features of Mars indicate that conditions suitable for the formation of life may have existed on the Red Planet in the past. An article detailing the study was published in the journal Astrobiology. Pictured: Comparison of structures discovered on Mars (above) and hydrothermal vents in Australia (below).
