German soldiers, date unknown. The reality of War. Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids. Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted. They also died in droves. Just because they fought for Germany didn't necessarily mean they were Nazis or held Nazi views. The Concentration Camps were Hell, no doubt, but during WWII, Hell stretched in every direction.

The 1913 Gettysburg reunion of 53,407 American Civil War veterans was for the Battle of Gettysburg’s 50th anniversary. President Woodrow Wilson’s July 4 reunion address summarized the spirit: “We have found one another again as brothers and comrades in arms, enemies no longer, generous friends rather, our battles long past, the quarrel forgotten—except that we shall not forget the splendid valour.”
