History

General William T. Sherman, leaning on breach of gun, and staff at Federal Fort No. 7. The picture shows War in the West. These photographs are of Sherman in Atlanta, September-November, 1864. After three and a half months of incessant maneuvering and much hard fighting, Sherman forced Hood to abandon the munitions center of the Confederacy. Sherman remained there, resting his war-worn men and accumulating supplies, for nearly two and a half months.

Old photos of the Statue of Liberty standing in Paris were extraordinarily surreal #historic #photos

    I don't believe this was in Paris -- the torch arm was displayed in New York in order to raise money for the base on which the statue was to stand. (It took a long time to get enough donations.)

    Yes you're right Lynda, this photo is from the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876.

Kalash Girl of Northern Pakistan. The Kalash are fascinating. They don't share DNA markers with any other races/peoples, and they are so isolated they have managed to preserve their culture. They're the only non-muslim people in Pakistan. Even more interesting, most don't look caucasian like this girl, but it happens in their gene pool occasionally.
