Gettysburg, PA ... 50,000 soldiers died for what they believed in.  This view today is absolutely stunning.  The views of yesteryear was pure chaos.  A true turning point in American history.  I feel like this is a spot everyone should visit just to get an idea of the realness of the Civil War.  #gettysburg #pennsylvania #visitgettysburg #gettysburgpark #militarypark #history #backintime #justimagine #beingthere #todaysadventure #battlefield #gettysburgbattlefields  #reenactor #historygeek  #nofilter
Wilhelmina Mountains is a mountain range in the district of Sipaliwini in central Suriname. It extends about 113 km (70 mi) from west to east. The "Devils Egg" is the rock formation pictured at on one of its peaks. A 12 day hike will allow you to see it in person.
75 years ago today, the destroyers USS Blue (DD-387) and USS Henley (DD-391) were escorting a pair of cargo ships in Savo Sound off Guadalcanal. Caught by the Japanese Shiratsuyi-class destroyer Kawakaze at 03:59 on the morning of the 22nd, USS Blue was torpedoed from a distance of about three miles, shattering her stern and destroying her propulsion machinery. With 9 dead and 21 wounded, the ship would remain afloat until scuttled after dark on the night of the 23rd. Kawakaze had previously assisted in the sinking of USS Pope (DD-225), HMS Encounter, and HMS Exeter during the Second Battle of the Java Sea in March. -- USS Blue is shown outboard of her sister USS Ralph Talbot (DD-390) in this Mare Island photo from April 1942. Both Bagley-class destroyers served as radar pickets during the Battle of Savo Island, but did not detect Admiral Mikawa's cruiser force approaching due to a misunderstanding of their radar's capabilities. -- Along with Blue, Henley would not see the end of the war; she would be torpedoed by IJN submarine Ro-108 off New Guinea, 21 September 1943. The only other sister to be lost from the 8-ship class was USS Jarvis (DD-393), actually the first to be lost. Torpedoed by Japanese aircraft just after the Operation Watchtower landings, Jarvis attempted to head for repairs on the night of 8 August, steaming past both Blue and Mikawa's cruisers on her way out. Though the latter fired on her, she escaped; mistaken for a cruiser, she was hunted down the next day by 11th Air Fleet aircraft from Rabaul. A force of 31 planes split the ship in two by 13:00, killing all 223 aboard.
Day 1 of #staugpreservationstories:  We took a field trip to #fortmatanzas. In 1911, this structure was in danger of collapse... • • Stay tuned!
@herculaneum_italy was sooooo cool! The town was buried after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD and discovered in the 1700's. You can't help but picture the people who walked down these roads and lived in these buildings 2000 years ago. . . . #history #herculaneum #unescoheritagesite #italy #romans #stepbackintime #interesting #honeymoon #travel #volcano #frozenintime #discovery #historygeek

Tustin, California: When driving through #tustin, you'll see these two massive structures that rank among the largest wooden buildings in the world. These buildings rise to the height of 17 stories high and encloses an area of 6.8 acres inside! What fits inside these buildings? I had to find out after stumbling upon them. These buildings were built in 1942 and were a part of the Naval Lighter-Than-Air Station Santa Ana, a Navy base that housed helium blimps during WWII! In fact, one hanger could shelter six K-class airships. Yes, six blimps! These blimps were used to patrol shipping lanes and thwart Japanese submarine attacks along the West Coast. The base operated until 1949 and was later used as a Marine helicopter base until it closed in 1999. The current plans are to redevelop the base into a regional park with residential housing and to preserve one of the hangars. The city is currently trying to figure how to adapt the hangar in this photo into another use. Meanwhile the fate of the second hangar is still up in the air. 🎈🎈🎈 #blimp #blimpstagram . #visitcalifornia #blimps #historygram #roadsideattractions #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #hittheroad #roadtripusa #roadsideamerica #ipulledoverforthis #roadsideattraction #everything_imaginable #travelamerica #exploreamerica #airship #discovertheroad #explorethestates #roadsidewonders #architecturelove #architecturegram #architecture_view #historygeek #historynerd #travelusa #usaroadtrip #themoreyouknow🌈
