9/17 anniversary of Constitution and Antietam
150 years since America's bloodiest day – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs
It's the 150th anniversary of the the battle of Antietam. Nearly 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, captured or missing that day. Today is also the 225th anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution in Philadelphia on Sept 17, 1787. This reminds me of how often we take our freedom and history for granted, and how hard people fought to get us to where we are today. To everyone who came before us, Thank You.
