Welcome to Farktography!
This Week's Theme: "History Happened Here"

Description
: Shots of historical sites, markers, re-enactors, or artifacts.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.
- Image hosting sites can be found here.

After Pearl Harbor, the goverment gathered up all the Japanese Americans (and anyone else who looked the part 'close enough') who lived near the west coast, and kept them locked up here, at the site of Papago Park, Phoenix, Az.

/round about 900 years ago, people lived here, overlooking the Salt River. We don't know their names, so we just call them the Salado (Salt) people.

Taken with an antique A. Darlot petzval lens married to a Canon xTi.

Union Lines Facing Henry Hill, Manassas National Battlefield
Manassas, Virginia

The first official ground conflict of the US Civil War occurred on this battlefield, as well as the 2nd Battle of Manassas (Bull Run). The Henry house was inhabited by several women, one of whom was the only civilian casualty of the battle. She sustained a bullet wound while lying in her bed as the battle raged through the family's fields. After the war, the family turned it into a museum of the battle.

Bucket of Blood Saloon

Located in Virginia City, site of the Comstock Lode (the largest silver strike ever). Owned by "Big Steve" Long, a blood thirsty gunman, it got the name from the large number of people he killed inside it. Long was killed by a lynch mob near Laramie, Wyoming.

Mahway, NJ.  Built in 1798, it's the oldest public building in Mahwah and the older of only two remaining frame Churches in Bergen County, NJ that date to the Federal period.  It was used as both a place of worship and a public meeting house in its early years, and it continues as a house of worship today.

Ellis Island

The original immigration station on Ellis Island was built in 1892, but it burned down 5 years later.  This building was opened in 1900 and was used to process immigrants until it was closed in 1954.  Ellis Island was declared part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places a year later.  The immigration station building now houses the Immigration Museum.

Located in what is now Ridgewood, NJ, the Church was originally built in 1735, and it was used by General George Washington as a military headquarters in 1778 and 1780.  During the Revolutionary War it was used as a barracks, hospital, and prison.  The current Church was built in 1800 with stones from the original Church; the cemetery contains stones dating to at least the 1760s, including many revolutionary war veterans.  Some of the early stones are written in Dutch.

Pacific Air Transport 1928 Boeing 40C S/N 1043 became the only airworthy example in the world. It also holds the title of the oldest flying Boeing in the world. In 1928, the aircraft was substantially damaged in a crash near Canyonville, OR. After being recovered, it was completely rebuilt over an eight year period and an estimated 18,000 man hours by Pemberton and Sons Aviation in Spokane, Washington.
