From today's featured article

Ashton-under-Lyne is a market town in Tameside, Greater Manchester, England. The population was 45,198 at the 2011 census. Historically in Lancashire, it is on the north bank of the River Tame, in the foothills of the Pennines, 6.2 miles (10.0 km) east of Manchester. "Ashton", deriving from Old English for "settlement by ash trees", probably dates from the Anglo-Saxon period. In the Middle Ages, Ashton-under-Lyne was a parish and township and Ashton Old Hall was held by the de Asshetons, lords of the manor. Granted a Royal Charter in 1414, the manor spanned a rural area of marshland, moorland, villages and hamlets. By the mid-19th century Ashton had emerged as an important mill town at a convergence of newly constructed canals and railways. The transport network allowed for an economic boom in cotton spinning, weaving, and coal mining, which led to the granting of municipal borough status in 1847. (Full article...)

Today's featured picture

Joseph F. Ambrose (May 24, 1896 – May 1, 1988), nicknamed "Doughboy Joe", was a U.S. World War I veteran who served in Company I, 140th Infantry, 35th Division, in the American Expeditionary Forces. Born in Joliet, Illinois, he was drafted into the United States Army in 1917 and served until 1919. Ambrose became nationally known for this photograph, circulated by the Defense Audiovisual Agency, depicting him attending the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., on November 13, 1982, at the age of 86. He was photographed wearing his Doughboy uniform, helmet and field equipment, as well as carrying the American flag that had covered the casket of his son, Clement A. Ambrose, who was killed in the Korean War in 1951. The photograph is in the collection of the National Archives at College Park.
