In memoriam

We tend not to think about the Battles of Lexington and Concord on Memorial Day, but the soldiers who died on April 19, 1775, are the first ones we should honor as fallen Americans. The fighting that day claimed the lives of 49 Colonists and 73 British soldiers, and set the colonies on the road to independence a little  more than a year later.

    Excellent Memorial Day point. I was very moved by the somberness of the moment.
