The first thing I've built in ages. It's basically the German emperor's throne room from WWI, but only loosely as it's my own design. I based the style on Victorian German hunting lodges. There's tons of details! Kaiser Wilhelm sits on his throne being fed pastries and food by his terrified groveling butler. Nearby is his letter writing desk, his grandfather clock, and of course his guard dog that he is siccing on the unfortunate British ambassador. One the walls we see relics of past hunting expeditions throughout the colonies, such as a stuffed monkey, hunting rifle, maps, compass, portraits, and shields. There's also a globe, a bust, radio console, and candlabra in the front, with a German flag and chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Really fun build all in all! I really enjoy making furniture. #lego #wwi #german #germany #kaiserwilhelm #throneroom #throne #war #victorian #colonial #history #moc #afol #legocreation #creativity #art

The video doesn鈥檛 quite do it justice but walking through the lines of soldiers with the sounds of men marching actually gives you the sense of marching with them. There is a little room with floor to ceiling video all around creating the sense of being in a trench with men shooting and fighting all around you and occasionally the whole room lights up from explosions. Walking to the American camp you hear the sound of walking through mud and feel a slight squish in the floor. Lots of cool, interactive experiences at the museum.

I stood in the chapel after everyone left the area and thought about the numerous photos I have seen of "doughboys" spending time in heavily damaged churches. I thought about how moments like this must have been so solemn to those who saw such things not in photos in the archives, but in real life. #wwi #memorialdayweekend #valleyforge

Isn鈥檛 it a bit unfair to have a gas mask on while playing? You don鈥檛 even need a good poker face, a clear disadvantage to the fellow on the right. But then again it鈥檒l save you from your typical Sunday gas attack, so thats a plus.

Not every casualty happens on the battlefield. Not every soldier鈥檚 death occurs courageously charging the enemy lines. This is George Thomas Pidgeon of Louisville, Kentucky, veteran of World War 1. Family legend says he survived a gas attack in France but came home to the Blue Grass State in a troubled state. He鈥檇 stumble while fishing a small rural river and drown near Edmondson. Three years later in 1922, his uncle would honor George by naming his only son after him. And in 1979, my father would give me the middle name of 鈥淕eorge鈥 to honor the man in the photograph鈥檚 nephew. #memorialday #memorialdayweekend #familyhistory #familystories #savefamilyphotos #oldfamilyphotos #soldier #ww1 #worldwar1 #wwi #kentucky #louisville #louisvilleky #writersofinstagram #writergram #writinglife #ancestry @ancestry #igwriters #geneology
