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,
