The 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1938 was a well-publicized affair, with a number of survivors of the battle attending.  This reunion was covered by the radio networks.

Would it be too much to ask that some of the networks recorded Confederate veterans reproducing the Rebel yell(s) and that some of such recordings are still extant and available for research?

Fallout shelters: some large public ones, with their logo of three equilateral triangles apex-down arranged two in a row with the third centered below still exist.  They have proven useful over the years for housing victims of natural disasters and wildfires.

However, the in-home family fallout shelter was not the 1950's; rather it was a fad in the Kennedy years/
