      This is a rare picture of General Robert E Lee with Traveler. I would like to meet him and watch his actions during the Civil War. I would like to see why he sent Gen. Pickett and his men down the center of the field at Gettysburg.

      A Rare Photo Of General Robert E Lee With His Horse "Traveller" Looking Tired, Muddy & Miserable With The Weight Of The Confederate World On His Shoulders

      General Robert E. Lee with Traveller (British spelling). I thought that I had seen just about every photo of Robert E. Lee, but here is one that is new to me. Lee purchased the horse in February, 1862 and rode Traveller throughout the entire Civil War. Traveller actually outlived Lee, dying shortly after Lee in 1871. I do not think it a coincidence that Lee named his horse, Traveller. Among the various war horses that George Washington rode during the Revolution, one was named Traveller.

    Benjamin, the last known thylacine, Hobart Zoo, 1933 ‘The thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger. Native to continental Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, it is thought to have become extinct in the 20th century. Intensive hunting encouraged by bounties is generally blamed for its extinction. Despite its official classification as extinct, sightings are still reported, though none proven.’

    General Erwin Rommel. A German, but not a Nazi, which led to his death. His story needs to be told.

    A picture that has been around for years. This was taken at the time of the man's death. He is surrounded by energy which could be his own energy leaving his body or the energies of others waiting to greet him. Notice the linear energy over him as well. There are supposed to be faces apparent to the right of him but I can't make them out with any surety. Maybe you can?

    Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee both died without a country. In 1865 Lee applied for pardon and completed an amnesty oath, fulfilling terms required by Andrew Johnson. But the documents were never recognized, and Lee died without citizenship in 1870. A century later a worker discovered the oath in the National Archives, and Gerald Ford restored Lee’s citizenship posthumously in 1975.

    In 1947, 23yr old Evelyn McHare jumped from the observation deck of the Empire State Building onto a limousine.

    Two 150-year-old dolls have been x-rayed in a bid to discover if they were used by Confederate soldiers to smuggle medical supplies past Union blockades during the U.S. Civil War. It is thought the large dolls – Nina and Lucy Ann – had their hollowed out papier-mache heads stuffed with quinine or morphine for wounded and malaria-stricken Confederate troops.

    This photograph shows General Robert E. Lee. The picture was taken by Mathew Brady, shortly after Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. Lee is wearing his confederate uniform. At the time the photograph was taken, it was unclear what punishment might be given to Lee for his pivotal role in the Civil War.
