    I'm just reminding everybody that the UN holds some of our National Treasures.

    Yesterday while I was with my parents and during a tour of Helena, we saw a copy of the Liberty Bell and I called it the the Unliberty Bell. Let me tell you what, I got a lot of weird looks from everybody that was around me.

    I informed everybody that the Bell was given away by Bill Clinton, and then most people looked at me like I was crazy or something. :confused: I'm sorry that some people are not on top of old news but that isn't my fault.:eek:

    I couldn't read the caption above the flag. What is the historical significance behind it?

    Sorry, further explanation needed. A "Guidon" is a flag carried by a calvary or infantry unit? Was this found at, " The Last Stand"?

    A guidon was the little swallowtail flag carried by a cavalry unit. The guy carrying the guidon would stay close to the commander, so during battle everyone could tell where the CO was.
