Nicolae Dunca was a Romanian revolutionary who fought in the 1848 Hungarian Revolution (on the Hungarian side), the Wars of Italian Unification, participating in the Expedition of the Thousand, and later in the American Civil War. Like many other "Forty-Eighters", Dunca walked the path of exile after the failure of the Revolution in Europe and ended up in America where he was granted political asylum. Once the Civil War broke out, he enlisted as a volunteer in the Union Army, being made captain in the 12th New York Infantry Regiment and aide-de-campe to Major General Fremont. Dunca was shot and killed while on picket duty at the Battle of Cross Keys (June 8, 1862). #unionarmy #federalarmy #italianhistory #ushistory #americanhistory #romanianhistory #iasi #darksideofhistory #militaryhistory #exile

St. Nicholas Church from Densuș, Hunedoara County - one of the oldest still-standing churches in Romania. It was built in the 7th century, over an old pagan temple. In the 13th century the church was rebuilt and expanded with stones and marble hauled from the nearby ruined capital of Roman Dacia, Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa. #sarmizegetusa #marble #stone #christianity #byzantine #rite #greekorthodox #easternorthodox #earlychristian #earlychurch #romanianhistory #churchhistory #darksideofhistory

German "trench club" from World War I. Trench clubs were crude, hand-made and often improvised melee weapons fashioned by both Entente and Central Powers soldiers who fought on the Western Front. These weapons were used alongside knives and other melee weapons in trench warfare, more specifically in nighttime trench raids. Some trench clubs had nails or spikes sticking out of them, others were wrapped in barbed wire and others had a metal object attached at the striking end (for example an empty hand grenade). Trench clubs proved to be quite deadly and efficient, especially when used to finish incapacipated enemy troops, like those afflicted or blinded by gas attacks.
