James River Sturgeon

Our good friend Anne Wright is a part of a group of scientists that are tacking the endangered James River Sturgeon. These fish who have been around since prehistoric times are making a comeback in the James River. This fish that can grow up to 10 feet in length helped sustain the early European settlers.

In 1974 Virginia passed laws to protect these giant fish. This is some of the results.

The National Archives has a Flickr account with 206 sets of photographs. Each set has as few as one photo and other sets have hundreds of photographs.

As of today the National Archives site has just short of 25,000 images. In addition to photographs there are also images of documents and posters. The images span in time  from the Civil War, many from the 70s, and a smattering from the 80s, 90s and more recent.

Lots of Mathew Brady Civil War photos and Americana from the 70s and even a photo of Nixon with Elvis.

There is a set of almost 700 photos by Lewis Hine. Many of his  photos are from coal mining country during the depression.

The photos above and below are from the set “Mathew Brady – Abraham Lincoln and Sons“.

Today February 12, 2014 is the 205 anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln who was born on February 12, 1809 in Hodgenville, KY. Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. Lincoln has often been called our greatest president as he was the president during the Civil War and known for his famous speech at the Gettysburg battlefield, “The Gettysburg Address.”

Recently there has been some evidence unearthed that points to the possibility that he also was a rather famous vampire hunter. This has yet to be confirmed.
