If you were a kid in the 1960s who loved history and toy soldiers, you probably had a WOW figure!

You were asked – TMP link

This time the poll is asking for your favorite of the non-war war locations. Some options may be more "most poignant" rather than favorite.

20% [TIE] – "Independence Hall (Philadelphia)" OR "Tower of London"
15% – "Edinburgh Castle"
12% – "Arc de Triomphe"

Obviously a very limited choice is possible in this format, but I would have voted for Les Invalides, as I can then revisit the museum and call in on Boney too. Hope this prompts other suggestions.

The USS Olympia in Philadelphia

I've walked the decks of the U.S.S. Constitution and the Mayflower "replica". Fort Knox in Maine is a good example of 19th c. military architecture (and never a battle fought there).

The pyramids at Sakkara. I thought this was even more impressive externally and internally than the Great Pyramid.

USS Olympia. HMS Victory. The Tower of London, Independence Hall, Valley Forge. The Cabinet War Rooms. Several bases with long history, come to that--Benning and Bragg in particular, and Riley, where they still had Custer's quarters. And Daley Barracks, formerly Manteuffel Kasserne, where we operated out of buildings formerly used by 7th Panzer Division. But I'd still give first place to the Pentagon.

My walking tour of the Battle of Trenton.

Yeah, it was a battlefield, but the women on the tour were far more interested in the grave of Napoleon's niece at the church cemetery. She died in a domestic accident while Joseph Bonaparte was in exile here.

The Army History Museum in Vienna. An absolutely world class museum, including awesome collections from the 16th to 19th centuries, and relics of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, including his uniform and the car he died in. The museum is a must see!
