    "John Lincoln Clem (August 13, 1851 – May 13, 1937) was a United States Army general who served as a drummer boy in the Union Army in the American Civil War. He gained fame for his bravery on the battlefield, becoming the youngest noncommissioned officer in Army history. He retired from the Army in 1915, having attained the rank of Brigadier General in the Quartermaster Corps. When advised he should retire, he requested to be allowed to remain on active duty until he became the last veteran of the Civil War still on duty in the Armed Forces. By special act of Congress on August 29, 1916, he was promoted to major general one year after his retirement. He died in San Antonio on May 13, 1937, and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia." ~Wiki #civilwar #history #drummerboy #usarmy

    kactuskid said: I really enjoy your photo selections. Do you know the location of this amazing library?

    Thank you! Not sure which post you’re referring to. One was a collection of several different libraries. Another one was a library that was demolished in Detroit, I believe. Such a shame. It was gorgeous.

    Consolidated B-24J-150-CO Liberator 44-40210 854th BS, 491st BG, 8th AF Hit by light-flak on the September 18,1944 low-level supply drop mission for the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions in the area of Eindhoven, Holland. The plane was badly hit in the right wing and the pilot, Capt. James K. Hunter, decided to belly her into a field, but lost the #3 engine at an altitude of 50 ft, causing the right wing to dip low enough to touch the ground.” Source: D. Sheley on Flickr
