Carmen Miranda – Chiquita Banana
I’m Chiquita banana and I’ve come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way
When they are fleck’d with brown and have a golden hue
Bananas taste the best and are best for you
You can put them in a salad
You can put them in a pie-aye
Any way you want to eat them
It’s impossible to beat them
But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator
So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator

Death of Antônio Vicente Mendes Maciel (1830-1897), “Antônio Conselheiro”, leader of Canudos.
Canudos was a small settlement in the northeast of the state of Bahia, near the border with the state of Sergipe. The population mainly consisted of freed slaves, mestizos, and indians. Antônio considered himself as a messiah; as a redeemer of the poor and desperate. He gained a considerable number of followers, and wandered with them through various Brazilian states until they settled themselves in Canudos. His messianistic reputation attracted no less than eight thousand followers to Canudos. The mayor of larger Juazeiro, nearby Canudos, feared social unrest and requested provincial troops. A small expedition army was eliminated in an ambush, by followers of Antônio. As a result, President Prudente de Morais sent federal troops to Canudos. The first battle resulted in a defeat for the federal troops. A second, larger expedition force also was confronted with fierce resistance and was forced to retreat. English intervention caused the government to send another army, in order to contral these monarchist insurrectionists. A giant howitzer and machine guns were the new weapons of the federal army. Meanwhile, the rebels suffered famine and were badly equipped. Antônio died of dysentery and malnutrition, due to fasting for penitence. Canudos was surrounded and bombed for days. The rebels surrendered, there were only three armed men left. The men had their throats cut off, the women were raped or sent off to brothels in Salvador. Antônio’s head was transported to Rio de Janeiro, where it was exhibited as a trophy. it is estimated that more than fifteen thousand inhabitants of Canudos died during the military operations.
