Armistice Day

Well, we are here again folks. I’ll let this 1918 postcard of my grandfather’s do the talking. The whole story is in my book, The Horse Whisperers from Anaconda.

  1. That postcard is a beauty! Wonder how goldenrod became America’s “flower.” Your “Horse Whisperers” book is fascinating on several levels. I’d never thought about horses still being trained and a necessary part of waging combat during WWI.

    • We have a large collection of WW I memorabilia including telegrams, post cards and items sent home from France and Germany – Even newspaper articles about my grandfather’s service in the Battle of the Argonne Forest. I hope to get all of this to some sort of a museum soon.


    • The Goldenrod (Soldiago gigantea) was declared the Nebraska State flower in 1895. Goldenrod is considered to be one of the few native flowers to the United States of America. That is probably the reason for its appearance on this postcard.
