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.
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. And amid the inhumanity of a Chinese prisoner of war camp, he gave them hope. Born in Hungary in 1929, Ted and his family were rounded up by the Nazis and taken to concentration camps when he was just 13 years old. He was taken to Mauthausen Camp in Austria, where an SS officer told the prisoner, "Y...

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.
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.
I made the fence using 1x2 lumber, getting Lowes to cut it for me at 4' and then some pieces to 2'. Then I screwed them together as a frame, stapled chicken wire to it and zip tied them together so I can take them down at the end of the season and put them away in the garage.

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.
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.

NOTE: I didn't personally eat any of these. We made these at a YW camp certification activity and the girls loved them. I got lots of compliments. Some people said that next time they would leave a little orange in the peel to make it taste more orangy. From what I heard, 5 out of 5! Campfire Orange Cakes
John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier. The quintessential wedding picture of maybe the most iconic couple in American history. In real life shooting a couple exiting the church is not always easy, but here the light is magic - the sun behind coming down on them and light bouncing back from some reflective surface to the left. The low angle shooting angle is great both to hide clutter and enhance the "iconic" feel - we are literally and figuratively looking up to them.

Irena Sendler 1910-2008 A 98 year-old German woman named Irena Sendler recently died. During WWII, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. Irena smuggled Jewish children out; infants in the bottom of the tool box she carried and older children in a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck. She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. She eventually was caught, and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families. Most had been killed. She helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won- for a slide show on Global Warming, he's a douche.
