    Default Name That Historical Event

    A photo is posted of a historical event, the person who identifies it is verified by the poster who then reps them. They then post a photo of their own and the cycle repeats itself.

    I can't really see it but I will randomly guess the Hindenburg disaster.

    Yes, the second Defenestration of Prague, 1618. One of history's more elegantly named repetitive incidents, something of a trademark of Prague politics for a while there.

    +rep and you're go.
