    Interesting photographs of US soldiers training.

    The Boxer Rebellion and resulting "Peace Keeping" missions in China are unknown to most Americans.

    Yes Scott these are the sort of things that can be forgot about. History can be cruel.

    Unknown to most Americans, but when I was in China I picked up a book of reproduced photos of this "period of imperialist occupation."

    Hi there looking to know how rare these postcards and photos are and does anyone know much about these
  6. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    I wouldn't call these rare. They are desirable for collectors-- esp. the real photographs.

    They would be much more desirable if they were during the actual Boxer Rebellion instead of the peace keeping years.
