Here is a veterans ribbon from the 1893 Gettysburg Reunion

1918 Fokker D VI

This is a $10.00 model that screws together and it looked like one I repainted it with a brush,
so it would look like some what of a kit. Changed a few colors , added a pilot and i guess it turned out o.k.

World War One 1917 British SE5A

Besides the Civil War, I would like to do some wargames using WW1 aircraft. I might be doing something in the near future, for now I'll build a few planes, since I've never built any, this is my
first one, and I'm sure it wont be the last. Comments always welcome.

assassination...The New York Herald ...April 15th 1865, explaining in great detail the events of the night before and an original piece from July 8th 1865 with an engraving of the Washington jail
