American Soldiers escort Dutch children in traditional dutch costume for a concert after the liberation. This is so sweet my teeth hurt but I have to say.... I feel like this is part of the reason I got stuck with those awful "Dutch Boy" haircuts between the age of 5-7. Thanks a lot adorable Dutch kids.
histoire-fanatique: American soldiers escort a group of Dutch children dressed up in traditional costume for a concert after the liberation in February, 1945 - I love this photo
Little Dutch girls escort American soldiers to a dance, 1944. From their expressions, especially the second in line, you can tell some of those guys have little girls of their own or nieces back home via Chrissie Ball.

Buffalo kill in America. 1800s. military commanders were ordering their troops to kill buffalo — not for food, but to deny native americans their own source of food and push them into reservation life. Where millions of buffalo once roamed, only a few thousand animals remained. Heartbreaking on so many levels...

Photograph from the mid-1870s of a pile of American bison skulls waiting to be ground for fertilizer. This photo gives just a hint of the scale of the mass slaughter of buffalo that occurred on the Great Plains in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century. There were a lot of reasons for it, but the most compelling and most often cited (even at the time) was that the slaughter of the buffalo herds facilitated the genocide of Native Americans.
Photograph from the mid-1870s of a pile of American bison skulls. Bison were hunted almost to extinction in the late 19th century primarily by market hunters and were reduced to a few hundred by the mid-1880s. They were hunted for their skins, with the rest of the animal left behind to decay on the ground. After the animals rotted, their bones were collected and shipped back east in large quantities. The US Army sanctioned and actively endorsed the wholesale slaughter of bison
Bison Skulls - 1870s bison were killed to be ground into fertilizer. Approximately 2 million were killed in 1870 alone. According to the IUCN, there are only 15,000 animals that are considered wild bison in the natural range within North America, defined as free-ranging and not confined primarily by fencing.

The History of Aprons - beautiful memories!

Memories of my Grandmother in her kitchen and the view of the farm from her kitchen window
Grandma at the kitchen sink. That could almost have been my gma. Memories in Mississippi.
meadowslark: A friend posted this on Facebook. I don’t believe that she was the author, but whoever was captured the memories of thousands… __________________________ The History of ‘APRONS' I don’t think our kids know what an apron is. The principle use of Grandma’s apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.It was wonderful for drying children’s tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears. From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven. When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids..And when the weather was cold, Grandma wrapped it around her arms.Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls. In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees. When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds. When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men folk knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that ‘old-time apron’ that served so many purposes. Send this to those who would know (and love) the story about Grandma’s aprons.REMEMBER: Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron.I don’t think I ever caught anything from an apron - but love…
Brings back so many wonderful memories. Hair, apron, dress, doing dishes; she reminds me of my Aunt Adele :-)

VISUAL BALANCE EX 2: Because of the symmetry in this photo, there is automatically a sense of visual balance. Had the picture been taken a little lower or higher, making the horizontal line rest in a different spot, there wouldn't have been the same amount of trees on both sides. Everyything is very equally balanced here.

Black Dog II (the son of Black Dog I) was reported to be about 6 foot, 2 inches in height and weighed around 220 pounds. He did marry and had several sons and daughters. None of his sons survived to manhood. During the War Between the States (Civil War), Black Dog and many of the Osage Indians decided to join the Confederate States Army. Photograph 1876

The Osage in the Four States. If you live in the Four-States area you are in the heart of the former Osage Indian Nation. Maybe not the most famous tribe, but arguably the most signicant in American history. Their geographical location in North America was so significant that it halted westward expansion for 125 years! No information about this photo.

Alice Roosevelt with her dog Leo. She smoked cigarettes in public, chewed gum, placed bets with bookies, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, and kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach, which she often wore wrapped around one arm and took to parties. Her father President Theodore Roosevelt once said of her “I can either run the country or I can attend to Alice, but I cannot possibly do both.” 1902

Alice Roosevelt Longworth was US President Theodore Roosevelt's daughter. Not really a heroine, but she was enough of a character that she would be great inspiration for a game avatar all the same. She was funny, smart, tough, beautiful, independent, and sexually liberated. Famously sarcastic, she told Senator Joe McCarthy of Communist witch-hunt fame that her garbage man was allowed call her by her first name, but he was not.
