Every new piece of information shared by Indy and the team, as well as contributors on this forum is excellent. Keep up the good work. :slight_smile:

Thank you very much. It’s election year in America, so get ready for some juicy stuff. I hope they talk about this incident. :wink:

For a second I thought you meant 2019, but yeah FDR is running for his 3rd term. Which reminds me, Wendell Willkie is the only other person besides Donald Trump to be a major party nominee for President in US history to have never been in politics or the military before election day. :open_mouth:

Of course not, silly!

I may use photos from the 1996, 2000, 2004 elections as references for colorization, but it sure ain’t 2019.
