Images Of World War 1 Sites Today

Very interesting article showing sites of WW1 battles as they look today.  The war to end all wars started just over 100 years ago.  One of my grandfathers fought for Canada in this and was gassed at some point.  I’m going to have to look into that a bit further.

It has been a tough week.  Been to busy to sit at the keyboard, with more hecticness to come. Blogging will be slow until next week.  Having said that, we did find time to finish off Breaking Bad to current.  Heard this song on the credits(great show for music) and had to smile.  I mean, The Monkees!!.  Still, a great song, good enough to make song of the day.

Haunting Civil War Pictures

Battle of Chickamauga

Doing some surfing and ran across this gallery of Civil War pictures on Life magazine‘s website (yes, they’re still around).  The War Between The States was the first time photography, then in its infancy, was used to document history as it was happening.  While on their website, take a look around, lots of very cool galleries.

One of the people I follow on Twitter shared this article* from The Atlantic magazine.  In it are many pictures taken during the Battle of Britain in World War II.  I have always been interested in this period of history and noticed that I had not seen many of these pictures before.  If you rae interested in this, I highly recommend taking a look.
