Today is Confederate Memorial Day here in Alabama. It is a official state holiday and has been observed for 120 years. There are many great events planned for the day. Below is a great link on the history of Confederate Memorial Day. Looking forward to another 120 years.

Hope you have a great day.
The Link isn't working for me, maybe it's a international problem.
Will you be firing the ' Lost Cause' today in celebration?

I wish I could fire it today but the gun is at the house in Birmingham, Alabama not England and I'm at my happy place in Demopolis. Plus with all the fire we did at Corinth I'm out of powder but will be ordering some more. Hopefully you will be able to fire when we all get together at Shiloh when y'all come over in the Fall.

Good stuff. I am looking forward to hopefully being retired some day and able to attend more events. I hear a local SCV Camp has a Confederate Memorial Day celebration in Clinton, Louisiana that I would like to attend one year.
