This day in history

In 1861, the Confederate States of America adopted its constitution.

In 1990, Lithuania declared its independence from the Soviet Union.

As well as sharing the same date, both of these events were condemned by Marxist historian Eric Foner. Wonder what Comrade Foner thinks about the current rise of secessionism? Heh.

We just celebrated this anniversary about a month ago or so. You're getting your anniversaries mixed up. I'm not surprised, you Southerners have so many anniversaries, it's difficult to keep track. It's a hoot.

I still await with eager anticipation for THE May 6th anniversary. My favorite Southern anniversary.

What people don't have anniversaries?

Apparently Scotland has oil. That's a major impetus for secession.

I expect the worst, but if patriotic Scots can grab some of the money and put it back into Scotland, maybe it can build itself a future without getting flooded with foreigners, which of course would erase Scotland's future.

New Zealand btw is wanting to change its flag. The flag is apparently too British - too associated with Celts and English.
