Best Veterans Day Movies of All Time
Veterans Day is observed annually on November 11 in the United States and serves to honor all those who have served in the US Armed Forces. This holiday originated as Armistice Day (a holiday still celebrated in many countries), which marked the anniversary of the Armistice with Germany that ended World War I.

The 10 Most Expensive Ford Cars Ever Made
Ford has been a household name in cars and trucks since Henry Ford introduced America to the Model T back in 1908. To this day, Ford is the top selling American car manufacturer by a wide margin. In fact, roughly one in every seven cars sold in in the United States is a Ford. A major aspect of Ford's image is as a vehicle for the working man: A contractor carrying his tools in the back of a truck or a father going on a fishing trip with his kids. There is another side to Ford's lineup, however, and that is in the ultra rare and ultra high end market of sports cars. Beyond the Ford Mustang, some of the most expensive Ford cars are one-off collaborations or concept cars, which range from iconic vehicles of the 60s to modern, high performance productions.

The History of the Rebel Yell
I don't know whether to thank or admonish Billy Idol for his hit, new wave album Rebel Yell. Sure, he ensured that the term "rebel yell" exists at the forefront of the American lexicon for a few more years, but now we run the risk of people thinking of "rebel yell" as merely an artifact of the 80s. The original rebel yell is actually an important—but often overlooked—piece of cultural history from the Civil War. Learning the history of the rebel yell is important if you want to gain a fuller understanding of the Civil War and the cultural history of the American south.
