Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog

I absolutely LOVE American history. Well, most history in general. I guess I'm quick to say American history since I am an American.

Color America

When I was younger, I could sit and listen to stories from my Grandpa about the days when he was a young boy during the depression, and even now I enjoy listening to my Dad share stories of his own. His childhood, the family farm, grandparents and great-grandparents that I'll never meet. I can still learn about them.

Take me anywhere and I'll probably make friends first with the older folks. I love them. I love hearing what they have to say... what they think about life... what they've experienced. I mean... they're living history! What could be better than that!

As a child, my mother took us kids for regular visits to a convalescent home to visit a family friend. We befriended several of the 'tenants' there and I've been hooked ever since. Work, school, wherever... I always made friends with people much older than I.

The younger generations of today will miss something great if not taught to value those who have lived before them. Those who have worked so hard and endured the hardships of life. There is so much to learn.

These are some amazing pictures that capture our American history. I love them! If you love history... or even if you don't... take a minute to check them out! You might enjoy them as well. Just click on the link below:
