Educational: "American Heritage Magazine"

2 posts in this topic

We've got a handful of the "American Heritage" books from the early '60s.  They are hard back books, yet it's a magazine.   They contain great articles on various subjects.  Some interesting articles are about:  Billy Mitchell (the founder of the Air Force) clearing land and installing the telegraph... ACROSS ALASKA during WINTER, the whaling industry (did you know about the Panorama of a Whaling Voyage Round the World, it's a painting 8.5' tall by 1275' long), and the beginnings of the army Jeep.  

What's neat, most all of the articles are available online.  Here's Billy Mitchell, pick a paragraph and see what you think.

Gonna pick back up with the Billy Mitchell story when I get home later...holy crap I feel like a wuss getting chilly here and then reading about the temps those guys faced and talk about like it was just a tough day no big deal.

Crazy!
