Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist's Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen. (/Joe Rosenthal) #History #WWII History and WWII

On Dec. 8, 1941, more than 1,200 young men volunteered for enlistment in the armed services the day after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The photo shows the USS Pennsylvania behind the wreckage of the USS Downes & USS Cassin.
The historical aspect of my book is Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941. Peral Harbor took place on the island Oahu, Hawaii. It was when the Japanese bombed a American navel base called Peral Harbor
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii: The jumbled mass of wreckage in the foreground of drydock No 1 are the US destroyers, Downes (left) and Cassin (right). The battleship in the rear is the USS Pennsylvania which suffered relatively light damage during the attack. December 7, 1941.

Original uncropped photo of Speakers Stand at Gettyburg. After close examination of this glass plate negative in 1952 by Josephine Cobb, this became the first and only known and proved photo of Lincoln at Gettyburg to deliver his historic speech. (see other photo of cropped detail of this photo of Lincoln in the crowd). Amazing detail and discovery!

One thing is for sure: Before Ludwig Wittgenstein and Adolf Hitler took very different paths in life, they were, as young teenagers, students at the same school -- the Realschule in Linz, Austria.
In his lifetime #Wittgenstein published just 1 book review, 1 article, a children's dictionary, and the 75-page Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921). In 1999 his posthumously published Philosophical Investigations (1953) was ranked top1 20th-century philosophy. 3 of his brothers committed suicide, with Ludwig contemplating it too. The meaning of words is constituted by the function they perform within any given #logic language-game. Sigmund #Freud, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler & Gustav Klimt.

Hitler's class photo of 1901 as a 12 years old school boy. He was with Ludwig Wittgenstein in the same school desk.
During WWII, Hitler forbid women (with some limited exceptions) from serving in the military and relegated them to strictly domestic roles. Contrast with the Soviet Red Army which had over 2,000 women snipers, including: Ludmila Pavlichenko, Klavdiya Kalugina, Nina Lobkovskaya, Moldagulova, Alija, Catherine Golovakha and Nina Kovalenko. Ultimately, the Soviets defeated the nazis with Hitler committing suicide. Then Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened...

A Copperhead was a member of a vocal group of Democrats located in the Northern United States of the Union who opposed the American Civil War, wanting an immediate peace settlement with the Confederates. Republicans started calling antiwar Democrats "Copperheads", likening them to the venomous snake. The Peace Democrats accepted the label, but for them the copper "head" was the likeness of Liberty, which they cut from copper pennies and proudly wore as badges
The 1940 census was the first to stop asking if a veteran had served in the Civil War. However, it’s possible that Civil War veterans might have been enumerated in the 1940 Census. This photograph of Union and Confederate veterans at Gettysburg was taken in 1938, just 2 years before the 1940 count.

At least 60 Vietnam veterans joined the Hartford rally. One young vet who had been wounded in the legs and chest told a newspaper that he marched because “you find you’re not fighting for anything, you’re just fighting to save your life.” Vietnam was a suicide mission, he said.

Young Italian Corporal Benito Mussolini, a member of the Bersaglieri Regiment posing on the front during WWI. Mussolini created the Fascist party in Italy in 1919, eventually making himself dictator prior to World War II, until being killed in 1945. Mussolini was an ardent socialist as a youth, following in his father's political footsteps, but was expelled by the party for his support of World War I. His fascist party held all the power once he became dictator. Hitler was his hero.

Berlin, Germany, 27 February 1933, an arson attack burns down Germany's Parliament, the Reichstag. The dedication 'To the German People' can be seen on the frieze. The Communists seem responsible and are accused, but they claim innocence and suggest that the act is self-inflicted. Whatever the case may be, President von Hindenburg used it to declare a state of emergency and to suspend civil liberties.
