The Civil War started this date (April 13), 150 years ago. If you took the 650,000 dead from that war and laid them end to end, the line would stretch from Washington, DC to Richmond, Virginia (100 miles) not once, but almost seven times. The bloodiest battle in US history, on OR off American soil, had 23,000 casualties.
This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. The numbers replaced their names while at the camps and they were tattooed on so that they could be easily tracked by the Germans. This is why we study history. So this never happens again.
Australian model caught distracted during a photo shoot when the first plane hit tower 1. What an epic photo. It’s so weird to think that normal things were happening on 9/11. People were walking their dogs, riding their bikes, models were doing photoshoots… and the planes hit.
