Excellent pictures


Recommended Posts

While doing a research paper in college, I discovered a database with pictures from the Library of Congress. The collection, known as "American Memory," has thousands of pictures from many different eras, from the War Between the States to the Second World War. If you have time, it would be worthwhile to browse through the various collections here.

Here is a link to a picture of an early U.S. paratrooper in training. Note the Riddell football helmet from which the later M2 and M1-C were derived.
