Appomattox Day

Screen shot 2014-04-10 at 11.02.14 AMAppomattox Day, in case you’re wondering…was yesterday, April 9th, 2014. Not many really “celebrate” this day anymore – though it is often commemorated – especially owing to its clear reconciliationist overtones. But not too terribly long ago, this day was celebrated with great joy and truimphalism by Union veterans – particularly those who fought with the Army of the Potomac – as the day the forces of the United States suppressed a domestic rebellion.

Not for nothin’ my fellow citizens – happy (belated) Appomattox Day!

With compliments,
