Under the supervision of American soldiers, German civilians from Nammering are forced to view the corpses of prisoners exhumed from a mass grave near the town. The victims were shot by the SS during an evacuation transport from Buchenwald to Dachau. The civilians were made to walk barefooted so that they could feel the sometimes blood-wet mud on their skin. by berta

Corporal Tibor "Ted" Rubin's many acts of courage during the Korean War saved the lives of hundreds of his fellow soldiers. In the heat of battle, he inspired his comrades with his fearlessness.

German soldiers, date unknown.  The reality of War.  Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids.  Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted.  They also died in droves. Just because they fought for Germany didn't necessarily mean they were Nazis or held Nazi views.  The Concentration Camps were Hell, no doubt, but during WWII, Hell stretched in every direction. by christa

An immensely powerful photo showing a Concentration camp inmate confronting a camp guard.  The look on the guard's face shows not remorse, but the meekness of a bully brought to judgement.  During the liberation of the camps, Allied troops occasionally turned their backs as inmates beat their former guards to death with anything at hand. by jayne

A captured teenage Nazi is in tears as he holds out his wounded arm for a sympathetic American to examine as they wait for a medic in Cherbourg. The French were sometimes puzzled (and angered) by Americans' kind treatment of prisoners, including giving them oranges, which they had not seen for years. by simone

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

Why is the boiled peanut the official state snack of South Carolina? There's some history behind boiled peanuts. South Carolinians began boiling them in the 1800's, and they were designated as the official state snack in 2006. It's said that during times of war when soldiers were in need of nutrition with high protein and without cooking facilities, they boiled peanuts over campfires. They discovered that these peanuts would not spoil for several days. Here's how to boil or where to buy them. by louellaa
