    A black soldier and a white soldier from different units (the army is segregated at this time) square off during the Chicago Race Riots of 1919. A total of 38 people (23 black, 15 white) would die, with thousands of black families forced from there homes through fear and attacks on them. The army was called in to quell the violence.

    Young girls babysit their younger siblings in a small village in Japan in 1901. Girls in traditional areas were brought up and taught how to care for children even before they could bear them themselves. This is a common sight among many areas around the world even today, as poor or traditional families had the children looked after by other children so the parents could work and feed everyone.

    Chinese policemen employed by Russia at Port Arthur, 1900. The Russians employed the Chinese for many duties around the area until Port Arthur was lost to the Japanese 5 years later.

    Black soldiers during a skirmish in South Carolina during the US Civil War in 1864. Once allowed to become soldiers, some 400,000 black men signed up, replenishing the Unions ranks easily. Originally many thought they wouldn't be used but for manual labor or to free up white regiments, they actually took part in many battles in 1864 and 1865. Their ability to work well in all facets of soldiery allowed politicians to make major pushes for more rights for blacks in the North and the end of slavery legally in the South.

    Bodyguards for the Sultan Sanda of Bornu, Dikwa Emirate of Nigeria in 1917. The Dikwa Emirate was established in 1901, and run by the Germans. After their defeat in WWI, the British took over. The Dikwa Emirate existed in some capacity all the way up until 2010, when changes were made to properly organize the 3 Emirates in Nigeria.

    An Italian Alpine Unit scales a cliff during the Italian Campaign (or Mountain War) in 1915. During WWI, the Italians were on the allies side, and used these units to get over mountains and cliffs to create a second front against Austro-Hungary. The mountains are in Northern Italy, and posed a natural border. Moving units over them rather than around them helped the Italians gain some ground on their enemy. WWI had many different campaigns and fronts, causing different methods to maneuver in order to possibly flank an enemy. The Italians going over mountains on foot though is often forgotten.

    Indian troops man a Lewis Gun to target an approaching Ottoman Empire air attack on the Mesopotamian Front during WWI in 1918. Most people associate WWI to the Western front in France and Belgium, and perhaps the Eastern front between the Baltic and Black Seas. However, the Mesopotamian Front, or Middle Eastern Theatre of WWI, was also a major front, which had mostly British, Indian, and Australian troops against the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East. It existed throughout the entire war, comprised of 5 massive campaigns, involving nearly 7 million troops, and had over 1.5 million casualties on all sides. Some of the conflicts in the Middle East later on that exist even to this day were a direct result of which groups chose what side during WWI.

    Chinese railroad workers pose for a picture somewhere outside Vancouver, Canada in 1874. As West Coast cities were established, the Chinese were coming to North America in large numbers looking for work and better lives. Just like mining companies and other manual labor companies, the railroad companies often employed them for cheap labor with no questions asked. The Canadian Pacific Railway employed these men. When the work was completed, they were discarded. They were often not allowed to settle down in the areas they worked, and many people in Canada and the US were quite racist towards the Chinese in the 1800s, even creating laws that discriminated them specifically.

    The USS Maine after it exploded in Havana Harbor, Cuba in 1898. Of the 355 men on board, 260 died. Only 16 men total escaped uninjured. The ship was in the harbor to protect US interest during the Cuban War of Independence, and after an investigation, was said to be sunk by a Spanish mine. However, further evidence would show the explosion was almost certainly an accident within the ship. Regardless, US authorities used the incident to declare war on Spain, with the firm intention of conquering Spanish territory around the globe. After a brief 4 month war where the US obliterated the Spanish with vastly superior ships and weapons, Spain surrendered, and in the treaty the US gained the Philippines and Cuba. This was one of the first major events where the US started on its way to becoming a major world power.
