    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.)

    Leslie’s, 1915. Unfortunately, there were three years
    of carnage ahead.

    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

    "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".

    Mike, as promised, I looked up the specifics. I need to correct a couple.:rolleyes: I spelled General
    Ambrose Burnside's name wrong. [Trivia: He's the one "sideburns" were nicknamed for:D,
    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
    morning.

    [​IMG]

    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!)


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    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?:mad:)

    Robert E. Lee
    (December 1862, commenting to Gen. James Longstreet after victory at the Battle of Fredericksburg)

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Robert E. Lee - Wikiquote

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiquote:Robert%20E.%20Lee -

    [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
