As previously mentioned, an appreciation for history-things is something that runs in the family. Specifically, an appreciation for the design of historical militaria. This late nineteenth century hussar uniform is a longtime favorite fondly revisited with every return home.

Spoilers; there’s also an incredible cap with a plume that couldn’t be fit in the picture. Plumes, yo.
Alright, I know, there have been a high volume of old books on here recently. Upon arriving home for a short vacation, guess what - more old books. But really, you should see the entire bookshelf of Napoleon swag my parents have come to accumulate over the years. As it turns out, history nerdom is hereditary.
