Here’s a rare film from 1913 showing a one-armed Joseph Trumpeldor plowing a field in Migdal shortly after he arrived in Israel from Russia. You can see the Arbel mountain and the Kinneret in the background.

Trumpeldor was the most highly decorated Jewish soldier in the Russian army (where he lost his arm in action) before he came to the Yishuv. He started out as an agricultural worker in Migdal and then Degania. Later he joined the famous Zion Mule Corps and then became a national hero when he lost his life defending Tel Hai
