Liberty – 1939 to 1943 America in Color

These pictures of America may blow you away.  Our 1st right, under God is to be left alone.  These pictures may not be very pretty, but they are a reflection of America, in her more innocent years. 

Sometimes we must Go Back in Time before we move forward in our lives.  In this fast paced world we can lose our souls.  Has America lost it's soul?  These men and women, from 1939 to 1943 depict the kind of people we used to be, the kind of America that gave us a heritage, the kind of America that was honest, the kind of America that stood for something.
