Looking back at Memorial Day

Sorry this is a couple days late, but I thought it was interesting.

KNOW YOUR HISTORY: Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.

Thanks to Abstrakt Goldsmith for this nugget of history that most of us never learned in school.

    How are the private schools down there? That may be the only way I could consider moving there with kids.

    There are great schools here public and private. It's the school board that is whack but they have gotten a haircut recently because they took it too far. 

    Sad part is, our text books are your text books. You're welcome.
