Question of the Day

Sep 18, 2014

Yesterday's question asked: Capa became perhaps most famous for one photo in particular, the authenticity of which was later called into question. What was the photo called and what did it depict? That would be "The Falling Soldier," which was "long thought to depict the death of a Republican, specifically an Iberian Federation of Libertarian Youth (FIJL) soldier during the Spanish Civil War. He was later identified as the anarchist militiaman Federico Borrell García." The original full title of the photograph is "Loyalist Militiaman at the Moment of Death, Cerro Muriano, September 5, 1936."

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to his colleague Craig Pittman,  Edward TennerSusan BurtonZach HinerCaitlin JohnstonTom Burton,Brock ThatcherKenneth RosenJohn WallDan FreedmanFrancis Hinchey and Margo Howard for also getting that right.

As for today's question, here it is, per the suggestion of regular QOTD participant Francis Hinchey (who will be abstaining from answering today): Name the five wars in which Congress declared war and, as a bonus, the commanders-in-chief at the time the wars were declared by Congress? (Thank you for the suggestion, Francis!)
