    Huge database of historical pictures.

    I found a site that I want to share here, it's a collection of old photographs arranged into alphabetical groups.
    Lots of Civil War, Native American, Prohibition and State specific photos along with a decent selection of world history.
    Each category is several pages long, there are navigation arrows at the base of each page.

    Here's a couple of gun pics I found there.

    Chris, some great pics of England and British troops in there.
    Falcon, I don't remember if you're from Nashville or not but there are some great ones of Nashville and TN in general.

    Glad you appreciate it, it brightened up my Sunday morning coffee that's for sure, beats watching the news.

    Amazing stuff! I just finished re-reading Theodore Rex and it is just great to be able to see the pictues of the real people mentioned in the book. The quality of the images is superb.
