The 'Afghan Girl'. Her iconic photo appeared on the cover of National Geographic in 1984. The image of her face, with a red scarf draped loosely over her head and with her piercing sea-green eyes staring directly into the camera, became a symbol both of the 1980s Afghan conflict and of the refugee situation worldwide. The image itself was named "the most recognized photograph" in the history of the magazine. She was finally found and rephotographed in 2002.

In 1963, everyone begged William Lewis Moore not to go to Mississippi. His family worried about where he would sleep & eat. He reminded them that he had been a Marine & that Marines could handle anything. He insisted on hand-delivering a letter to the governor, urging the staunch segregationist to change. But he never made it to Miss. He was shot to death April 23, 1963, after crossing into Alabama. Although police quickly identified a suspect, no one was ever charged.
