l. John F. Kennedy at NASA's Cape Canaveral Missile Test Annex in 1962.
2. Douglas MacArthur signing the official Japanese surrender instrument aboard the USS Missouri, 1945.
3. Hitler inspecting the massive 800mm “Schwerer Gustav” railway gun from afar. It was the largest-caliber rifled weapon ever used in combat, and fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece.
4. George Armstrong Custer (with his dog) and some of his fellow soldiers, during the American Civil War.
5. Manfred von Richthofen, aka “The Red Baron”, petting his dog on an airfield.
6. Tsar Nicholas II goofing around with his friend in 1899.
Ten points each.

Twenty - Gentlemanly C
Thirty - Good job!!!!
Forty – Superior Performance
Fifty - Awesome. I’m impressed
Sixty - Are you sure you didn’t peek at the answers?

I didn't do well either. I recognized some of the people, Kennedy, MacArthur and Custer...

I got three of them correct. I guess I'm more well versed in my history than I thought. I loved the photos. Fun post!

Dang it. I only got three . . . but had all but one of 'em in the right nation :)

Now I'm going to run this past my smarty-pants hubby.

Thanks! This was fun.

I got 1, 2, and 4 and guessed Hitler in 3 although not the circumstance. Interesting. I had no idea Tsar Nicholas ever goofed off!
