Rachel, thanks for the historical facts.  This is my late mother's birthday, I posted a blog as a tribute to her.

Rachel, some great anniversaries you have mentioned!  Love it as a former US History Teacher. 

Also, 101 years ago the Union forces beat back a vicious Confederate attack on both flanks on the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
