Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Lincoln, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Today, February 12th, is Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday.


150 Years Ago Today…

The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Abraham Lincoln was at Ford’s Theater.


The Battle for Gettysburg…

Gettysburg, Morning, Fog, Foggy, Mist, Misty
…and our nation began 150 years ago today. July 1st to July 3rd, 1863.

It was the turning point in the American Civil War but imagine if the North had not won…

…it was the UNITED States that led the Allies to winning World War II. What would have happened if we lost?

Just that one thought leads to everything else – moon landing, civil rights, FDR, personal computers, JFK, (fill-in-the-blank) – would we be a superpower today or just two – 2nd tier nations struggling to survive?

The photograph above is of the Gettysburg battlefield and photographed looking north west from Little Round Top.


Hometown Falls

Paterson, New Jersey, Waterfalls

The photograph above is of a waterfalls in my hometown – Paterson, New Jersey, USA.
“The Falls”, as it is known to the city’s inhabitants, is a source of pride and history.
The city has a rich history – it was America’s first industrial city.
It is home to many famous people, including a favorite comedian of mine, Lou Costello
(of Abbott and Costello fame).
Locomotive engines were built here that were world renown. One of the first submarines was
launched from the Passaic River. New York City Theater plays would open in Paterson first.
It was known as “Silk City” (before the advent of artificial fibers).
The list goes on and on.


Boston

BostonWhat terrorists forget,
regardless of our differences,
when we are attacked,
we stand united.

The photograph is of a Boston Colonial  Stone taken years ago.
