    Japanese pilot. The Japanese were known as very ferocious, brutal and ruthless military fighters.

    Stories like this need to be told more often. Found on Shorpy among the comments below photo at www.shorpy.com/.... Entitled "Other side of the story.". Widens our view of the bombing of Pearl Harbor from the pilots' experience. The pilots had no idea they were performing a sneak attack until afterward, and even then, if any of them had a problem with it, they were given veiled threats. Very interesting. I'm not surprised. Our history books never give us the total 'real' facts.

    Sacajawea's Grave Marker. It's controversial tho. Many historians believed she died right after the Expedition around 1812. No one can prove where she went or what happened to her after the trip or when she died. If she died in 1884, she would have been a very very old woman for the day.
