War rationing – carrots on a stick war rationing was just a way of life during World War II in the UK. One of the luxuries to hit the rationing list was sugar and with no sugar, there was no ice cream. But the official wartime substitute for ice-cream was a carrot on a stick. Many British children born just before the war didn’t discover what ice-cream was until the war was over and the rationing stopped. The photos are from 1941. by LiesbethLap

The Audubon family began in Audubon Park—once home to Native Americans, and later, to New Orleans' first mayor, Etienne de Boré. During the Civil War, the location alternately hosted a Confederate camp and a Union hospital. In 1866, it was the activation site for the 9th Calvary, the "Buffalo Soldiers" whose defense of our country's western frontier made an indelible mark on America's African-American heritage. by phyllis

Over ninety years ago during World War I, British and German soldiers put down their weapons, walked out into the desolation of No-Man’s Land and shook hands. This was the Christmas cease fire of 1914. In a moment unique to the First World War, troops were given a moment of respite from the horrors of the war when soldiers exchanged gifts, looked at each others’ family photographs and played friendly games of football with the enemy. by carrie
