These two Confederates veterans posed for the camera during a 1920’s reunion in Florida. What incredible stories do you think they could tell? What battles did they fight in? Did they ever have a personal interaction with any well-known Civil War figures? We’ll never know but we can certainly wonder. (Note: Sorry for the lack of posts. Things have been moving really fast lately but will hopefully settle down. Christmas break is coming up soon and I will try to get a post out almost every day if possible.) #americancivilwar #civilwar #union #confederate #yankee #rebel #war #history #military #civilwarhistory #thecivilwar #photography #militaryhistory #preservehistory #americanhistory #unitedstates #america #soldier #human #story #usa #america #confederacy #remember #veteran #veterans

#Repost<link>@roman.military.history(@get_repost)Josephus</link> on the efficiency of Roman artillery ➖ follow for more @tiptibs Tag us to be featured #tiptibs "The force of the spear-throwers and catapults was such that a single projectile ran through a row of men, and the momentum of the stones hurled by 'the engine' carried away battlements and knocked off corners of towers. There is in fact no body of men so strong that it cannot be laid low to the last rank by the impact of these huge stones. The effectiveness of 'the engine' can be gathered from incidents of that night: one of the men standing near Josephus on the rampart got into the line of fire and had his head knocked off by a stone, his skull being flung like a pebble from a sling more than six hundred yards; and when a pregnant woman was struck in the belly on leaving her house at daybreak, the unborn child was carried away a hundred yards; so tremendous was the power of that stone thrower. Even more terrifying than the actual engines and their missiles was e rushing sound and the final crash. There was a constant thudding of dead bodies as they were thrown one after another from the rampart." ~ Josephus, "The Jewish War", 3.23 --- #Rome #Roma #RomanArmy #RomanLegion #RomanEmpire #SPQR #History #RomanHistory #AncientHistory #MilitaryHistory

awesomeshack. I'm no history buff, but every once in a great while I find a real pie

I'm no history buff, but every once in a great while I find a real piece of the past that needs exploration. I do love research and so far I've done a little to see what this is. I know that "NCO" stands for Non-Commissioned Officer, I know that "Volkswandertag" is a German word that basically means an organized public walk event, but so far I'm working on trying to place this actual event in history. It may not have major cultural significance, but it's going to be fun to find out nonetheless! #military #militaryhistory #history #germanamerican #german #nco #noncommissionedofficer #ncowivesclub #nellingen #nellingenncowivesclub #volkswandertag #historybuff #historybuffs #medal

A Polish viewers may know about him the Witold Pilecki (13 May 1901-25 May 1948) Pilecki he was born in the town of Olonets , the Russian Empire was a Polish Calvary officer, intelligence agent and resistance leader. He served a Rotmistrz (Calvary captain) with the Polish army in Polish-Soviet War after the war in 1919-1920 in WW2 Polish Resistance Pilecki went into hiding in Warsaw with his commander Major Włodarkiewicz, Włodarkiewicz became the leader, while Pilecki became organizational commander of TAP as he ordered to cover Warsaw, Siedlce, Radom, Lublin, and other major cities in central Poland. Therefore it’s a good plan when the Polish home army wanted to defend his own cities and country, By 1940, TAP had approximately 8,000 men, carried weapons, supplies and anti-tank rifles. To maintain his cover, Pilecki worked as a manager of a cosmetic storehouse. When the Germans fight against the Polish Underground State and finally Pilecki was captured by Nazi German and took to the Prison Camp called Auschwitz concentration camp, located in southwest Oświęcim, Poland. The Witold’s Report, the first comprehensive Allied intelligence report and the Holocaustin 1941. Luckily, Pilecki was escaped from the Auschwitz in 1943. As of began Warsaw Uprising he remained loyal to the London-based Polish government-in-exile after the communist takeover of Poland, and he was arrested and took into the Mokotów Prison for espionage in 1947 by Stalinist secret police (Urząd Bezpieczeństwa) on charges of working for “foreign imperialism”, a euphemism for British Intelligence. Later that year he says: “I’ve been trying to live my life so that in the hour of my death I would rather feel joy, than fear” he was executed by staff Piotr Śmietański Mokotów Prison on 25th May 1948. The Polish people said “Witold Pilecki is a hero of nationalism of Poland” Let me know if you have any suggestions please ask me. #20thcentury #militaryhistory

archivalresearchgroup. Here is the first order of 1911s with prices of pistols, spare magazin

Here is the first order of 1911s with prices of pistols, spare magazines and the parts the Chief of Ordnance placed in 1911 one month after the official adoption of Colt's automatic pistol to replace the double action revolver as the primary sidearm of the US Military. How times have changed in prices... We are in the process of uploading 1390 documents covering this era. Adding to our previous set of documents on the same topic. We will have over 1800 documents covering the transition to and adoption of the M1911 from the double action revolver spanning August 10, 1910 to June 10, 1913. And our library will just grow from there. All these records come straight from the National Archives and no available unless you travel to the facility itself. These files are available from your home computer. The catch is, you have to like to read. Will be added to our page under Chief of Ordnance, General Correspondence 1910-1915. #ww1 #WW2 #m1911a1 #m1911 #militaryfirearms #militaryhistory #colt45 #coltfirearms #colt1911 #1911fanatics #1911pistol

#LateNightHistory — The Worst Railroad Accident Occurred 102 Years Ago, Today - - - #OnThisDay December 12, 1917, a transport train carrying over a thousand French soldiers returning home from the Italian Front, catastrophically derailed killing approximately 675. The incident became known as the Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne derailment and is considered the worst railroad operational accident in history (2004 Sri Lanka tsunami accident was due to a natural disaster). The local railroad traffic commanding officer suggested combining two trains with 19 coaches to a single 4-6-0 engine. This way all the soldiers would make it home before Christmas. What he didn’t predict was that only the first three train cars had air brakes, while the rest either had hand brakes or none at all. The train ride was normal as ever, stopping at Modane station where several officers got off. It left the station onward to Chambéry at 11:15PM. As it continued into the valley of Freney, the 526 tonne locomotive accelerated downhill as the conductor pulled on the brakes to no effect. For four miles at speeds exceeding 84 mph in a 25mph section of the line, the runaway train’s brakes echoed whines of the struggle throughout the Alps and flung orange and yellow sparks into the air. All 19 wooden cars reinforced with metal chassis flew off the tracks. Each train car slammed into the one in front of it and exploded or caught fire. The impact was so intense that 37 soldiers were found flung about across the railway, either by force or from those who had bailed. Over four hundred corpses were extracted from the wreckage, over one hundred could not be identified, and a hundred more later died from injuries at the hospital. The French military classified the after action reports and silenced the French Press for many years. The journey home was initially planned to improve morale, but the lack of judgement for safety, ultimately destroyed the spirits of the 183 survivors. - - - #History #Accident #RunawayTrain #CrazyTrain #SaintMichel #WWI #TransportTrain #Disaster #FrenchHistory #MilitaryHistory #Frontlines #Rescue #Catastrophe #Fieldcraft #Survivor

Krallis, SV1XV -------------------------------------------- The origins of the present-day Hellenic Navy, can be traced back the navies of the Greek city-states of Athens and Sparta, before and during the Greco-Persian Wars which lasted from 480 BC to 479 BC, which are known for the famous battles of Marathon and Thermopylae. The Persian Navy was destroyed by combined Athen-Sparta naval force at the Battle of Mycale on August 27th, 479 (BC). -------------------------------------------- In the 20th century, during the Great War, the Hellenic Navy being part of the Triple Entente, didn't see any major use. During the Second World War, while the Battle of Greece was ending in May 1941 ..many Greek warships (including the HS Georgois Averof) managed to escape being sunk by Luftwaffe Stuka dive bombers in Greek harbors. -------------------------------------------- In the decades after the war, along with German and Dutch-built frigate, the Greeks received two Osprey 55-class Danish-built gunboats named (P-18) HS Armatolos and (P-19) Navmachos. Both are 555 long tons (564 t) full load, have a crew of 35, and armament of 1 x OTO Melara 78 mm naval gun, 1 x Bofors 40 mm autocannon, and can carry naval mines. #🇬🇷GreekCruiserGeorgiosAverof #Aegean #Greece #Greek #Athens #Athenian #Sparta #Spartan #Thermopylae #Hellenic #Mediterranean #Persia #Persian #PersianWars #Dardanelles #Antiquity #GreatWar #SecondWorldWar #ColdWar #Frigate #PatrolBoat #NATO #NavalHistory #MilitaryHistory #History #Historian #HistoryBuff

The Battle of Könnigrätz was the decisive battle in which the Kingdom of Prussia defeated the Austrian Empire and her allies in the Austro-Prussian war in 1866. The Austrians lined up in a defensive posture with all the advantages.The well disciplined and well trained Prussian infantry despite being at a significant numbers disadvantage prevailed, even with the ineffectiveness of their artillery. A key factor in this was their use of the Dreyse needle gun that was a breach loading bolt action rifle using a paper cartridge. This allowed them the fire up to 6 shots a minute and to do so from the prone position. The Austrian infantry still used muzzle loading weapons were at a severe disadvantage. Through fierce fighting and the Austrians moving from their defensive positions to counter attack as Prussian reinforcements arrived, the Prussians took the field. The Prussians suffered only 9,000 casualties while the Austrians and her allies suffered 44,000 killed wounded or captured. This victory allowed Prussia to be the decisive power over the fractured states that of what we now call Germany and was the first step towards German unification. #könnigrätz #war #history #militaryhistory #prussia #gun #rifle #army #battle #europe
