Happy Fourth of July to all my American readers!  Today's Random Friday topic was definitely chosen with the holiday in mind.  I also invited a couple friends to share their favorite moments in history, too, so let's get started.

Rose from Searching the Clouds's Favorite Moments (@rose_reading)
1. 1940s - 1950s
While this time period was not exactly the most peaceful, the culture and fashion in America are my favorite through the 40s and 50s.

2. When this happened
I love how this was such a living-in-the-moment moment that was actually captured on camera.

1. Battle of Yorktown 1781 - This should be a favorite moment for every American! The last major land battle for American independence is one to always be remembered.

2. John F. Kennedy assassination 1963 - This forever changed the course of American history & I love this time period. I also love the conspiracies surrounding the assassination.

3. Battle of Bosworth Field 1485 - I'm a HUGE English history nerd and this was a huge moment. The end of the Plantagenets and rise of the Tudors. I love the mystery surrounding Richard III & the Tudors are my favorite royal family!

Emma's Favorite Moments
It was actually really hard choosing my moments in history!  I'm more of a "whose your favorite historical person" girl.  Since it's my blog, I think I can get away with listing those. ;)

1. Ronald Reagan - I regard him as one of our best presidents (and even the best have moments where they mess up).
2. Coco Chanel - She forever changed fashion as we know it (along with Paul Poiret and a few others).

And now a favorite period:
I love the 1910s because Victorian fashion was still trending, but also because hemlines were starting to creep up.  Plus, I love British society during that time (thanks to Cinders & Sapphires, and my mother who got me into Downton Abbey).

So what do you consider to be your favorite moments in history?

  1. My favorite time is anywhere in the first half of the 20th century but entirely for the fashions. I do like learning about the second world war, not because of the events exactly but mainly for the strategy aspects of it.
