SATIRICAL HUMOR AHEAD!
German troops during the Battle of the Marne. Near
the river Marne the German invasion was brought to
a standstill. Picture made in September 1914. This
picture is thought to be staged. The Iron Cross the
soldier in front is wearing, e.g., would not have been
the norm while in action. (By 1916, the showy spike
helmets had been ditched for more practical ones.)
Leslies, 1915. Unfortunately, there were three years
of carnage ahead.
I consumed many a burger here in my 63 Valiant and 66 Barracuda!
The Bomber, my hometown of Milwaukie Oregon!
This place opened in 1907, is STILL in business! A great place!
Packard dealer in Portland. The building is still there.

Everett Bowman and Skeet Bowman on the way to the 1926 Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo ~
And, Everett was the tie-down roping champion twice at Cheyenne, 1927 & 1935. He also won the steer wrestling in 1935.
Does anybody happen to have a pic of Betty Page dressed in a blouse and long skirt standing near the front of a 56 Corvette? The pic was taken at/near the 1956 New York Auto Show. Thanks
Chicago Auto show, 1932. what kind of car is this??
"In 1932, the presentation was billed as the “Aristocracy of Motordom,” and featured elite marques including Rolls-Royce, Cadillac, Packard, Duesenberg and Mercedes. These were the highest-grade cars and custom coachwork in the world at the time, presented in an elegant setting for discriminating and distinguished clientele".
Georgia Avenue, N.W.
these are from 1950.
Mike, as promised, I looked up the specifics. I need to correct a couple. I spelled General
Ambrose Burnside's name wrong. [Trivia: He's the one "sideburns" were nicknamed for,
BTW!] He used pontoons, not barges, to land his forces. The Rebs KNEW where the Yanks
were going to land and attack -- BIG advantage to any defending team, right? Though it
wasn't their only position, the Confederates were arraigned in several rows (for reloading
purposes) behind the stone wall on Maryes Heights, not the way I spelled it in a rush this
These guys were about the get their butts kicked by the Rebs. The attacking federal troops
suffered TWICE the casualties as the Confederates. (But, the Yanks got a measure of revenge
when the Confederates were in a similar position a few months later at Gettysburg!)
The Rebs lost about one man for each two federal casualties. But, hey,
a dead man is a dead man. So these two perspectives, behind the wall
at Maryes Heights, are still pretty sad. It was said that many casualties
were from federal rounds shattering stone fragments into projectiles.
(Damn, sure would be nasty -- pieces of lead, sharp pieces of stone into
your eyes and head. What was it Sherman said, again?)

Robert E. Lee
(December 1862, commenting to Gen. James Longstreet after victory at the Battle of Fredericksburg)
Robert E. Lee was, IMO, was an admirable man, and for a lot of reasons. Above all, he stood for personal
honor and was, FIRST, a loyal patriot of Virginia, even before the United States of America -- and though
he graduated from West Point second in his class, and was a much decorated lieutenant for his bravery
and strategic guile during service in Mexico. Though he was agonized, he never flagged from that phil-
osophy and standard of loyalty. Though he was offered the commission of General in Chief of the federal
forces, he gracefully declined. For those in the modern day who think that the American Civil War was
only about preserving slavery, I believe they would find the words of Lee very illuminating regarding the
point of view of southerners who did not own slaves, as well as men of judgement, like Lee. Great quotes
at the following Wiki link; but, please, take some time and don't just speed-read it.

[NOTE: Incidentally, Robert E. Lee could have had a string of the finest horses from south of the Mason-
Dixon Line. But his horse, Traveler, above, was more like a friend and companion. Though I'm not an
expert, Traveler, shown here in 1866, looks to have been a standard or, more likely, a pretty quarter-
horse. Color: What we'd call today a "buckskin." His choice of a ride says a lot about what a humble
man he really was.]
I asked the same question awhile back. I believe they told me it was a Lincoln, in sort of a fancy-pants Vicky style body. Coach built or factory? Gary
Double post, sorry !
