Attention all good people! We are hosting an extraordinary transportation themed event here at the AHM called “Race of the Century” on September 11th and 12th. There will be horses, bicycles, transportation contraptions and automobiles of great variety participating in this exhibition. Do you have something special to add to the line up? We are looking for modes of transportation from the mid 1800’s to the 1930’s. Early steam or electric powered automobiles, early bicycles, and rare early automobiles would fit in perfectly. Interested in participating? Send a photo and brief description to Hunter Chaney: hchaney@collingsfoundation.org. ... See MoreSee Less

The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies, known as the Viet Cong, against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The divisive war, increasingly unpopular at home, ended with the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973 and the unification of Vietnam under Communist control two years later. More than 3 million people, including 58,000 Americans, were killed in the conflict.
