Fyi, a good movie on Jackson and the Southern viewpoint of the early Civil War times would be the movie Gods and Generals. It has Robert Duvall in it as Robert E. Lee. It’s pretty long, though, so you need to be in the right mood to watch it. I would also suggest watching the extended version of it, not the theatrical, as it flows better.
Italy’s first War of Independence against Austria.
I have nothing to say about this picture. It speaks for itself.
I will try to find some for you.
If anyone has some or knows we could find them please share
The Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery and Memorial (French:Le Cimetière de Guerre Canadien Groesbeek) is located about three kilometres north of the village of Groesbeek, Netherlands. The cemetery contains 2,338 Canadian soldiers of World War II.
The cemetery is unique in that many of the dead were brought here from nearby Germany. It is one of the few cases where bodies were moved across international frontiers. It is believed that all fallen Canadian soldiers of the Rhineland battles, who were buried in German battlefields, were reinterred here (except for one who is buried in Reichswald Forest War Cemetery). General H.D.G. Crerar, who commanded Canadian land forces in Europe, ordered that Canadian dead were not to be buried in German soil.
Thousands of Dutch children tend the graves of the soldiers buried here as they do throughout the Netherlands.
The cemetery also has a Cross of Sacrifice within it.
I like him with his fringe blowing in the wind.
It fully exposes his glorious eyebrows.
Referenced from a WWI book I stumbled across in the children’s section of the public library. So I was like, “oooh…”
I was inspired, yet again, by this fic, and a random trip to the library.
I wanted to draw Ukraine wearing a military outfit, because she is so sweet, but I still think she’s a badass lady.
