In 1889 the waters held behind the historic Johnstown Pennsylvania dam, in the black and white photo below, broke through and left behind what remains today in the color photo. Over 2200 people in Johnstown PA lost their lives.

Swastikas on the Colorado

Today, outside Yuma AZ, on the border with California, stands the only structure left standing in the United States that was built by the US Government where the swastika is an integrated part of the structure. Yet, most people, even in AZ and CA, are unaware of this historic dam.
