Tuesday in Mooseville – OTD 2/26/19

A Spring Day, 1873. It’s not spring yet, but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded that it’s coming.
My planned post for today went by the wayside; it’s hard to write anything remotely coherent when you’re obsessively checking hashtags on Twitter to see if your church has imploded yet. But the thought of a Tuesday without some history was unbearable [to me] too, so here’s a taste of what’s happened on this day.
First, there was 1993.

The legacy he wanted but didn’t get. (Category: Individual 1, take note)..

Ten years apart; still monumental.

15th Amendment guaranteeing the right to vote (still not for women or Indigenous though) is sent to the states for ratification. (Category: About damn time)

Completed on this day; didn’t completely melt until July 30, 2008. (Category: things JanF could do in her spare time)

Seven years. (Category: So many names, so many lives)

I found my thrill… (Category: New Orleans favorite son)

Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Figaro, magnifico… (Category: History or current events?)

That’s all, folks! I’ll try for something meatier next week…

    • Thanks, bfitz. Today’s post is mostly a placeholder to say, “Don’t break the Tuesday habit.” I felt badly about the lack of content this morning, but then I took a YouTube stroll through some Fats Domino music. It’s amazing what a little New Orleans’ boogie will do for one’s mood!

      • There are times when you need to take a break in your head even if for whatever reason you don’t want to completely do so. This is one of those times. It was a good round up – some happy, some sad, some diverting. You did good. Holding you in my heart. moar {{{HUGS}}}
