I'm sure you gentlemen are well acquainted with the image, but on a visit to the Calvin Coolidge homestead I was surprised to see a photo of the then-governor of Massachusetts inspecting trapdoor-armed National Guard during the Boston Police strike of 1919. The Guard apparently fired their guns in earnest during unrest the night of September 10-11, which ultimately resulted in a death toll of nine. Boston was not a foreign war zone, granted.
