Derby #246: Animals Re-Enact History

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

We're big fans of history here at Shirt.Woot. We read historical fiction, we listen to historical podcasts, and we all had to pass United States History in grade school. But we know where our bread is buttered, baby, and we think we could really turn the masses onto history if we injected some cute and furry. So this week, recreate your favorite points in history, except swap out all the humans for animals. Maybe you can depict George PAWshington crossing the Delaware, or AbraHAM Lincoln getting assassinated by- You know what? That's a bad example. Just give us history, or give us adorable animals! Actually, give us both. Yeah. Both.

No text.
"History" is defined as famous events that ocurred pre-1970.
"Famous" is defined as something more than just your goofy circle of friends know about it. None of this "one time my bro John ate this burrito the size of a baby" crap.
