1917, “Great Gatsby” genius F.Scott Fitzgerald’s military portrait. I know he purchased the uniform for this photo at Brooks Brothers, was very excited to go to battle, but never ended up serving. It was a regret that supposedly haunted him his whole life, never being in a war. Anyhow, he’s adorable if you ask me.

Vasil Levski, age 30, 1867. This Bulgarian solider was at different points in his life, an Orthodox monk, a teacher, and a member of the Bulgarian legion, a revoloutionary group whose goal was to liberate their homeland from the Ottoman empire. Six years after this picture was taken, Levski was captured and executed by Ottoman officials.
His Wiki lists his occupation simply as “Revolutionary.” Damn.
