Fourth of July

        The Fourth of July is observed in the Confederate States but not celebrated, for while
        G Washington, T Jefferson, E Rutledge et al were Southerners, and without them there would
        have been no American Revolution, yet it was England, who had tried twice to extinguish
        those damned rebels and their upstart “United States,” who came to the South's aid in the
        birth throes of that new nation and who have been a friendly power and trading partner ever
        since.  [Conversely and not coincidentally, Independence Day is celebrated
        religiously in the USA - and early in the 20th century was the occasion for anti-South
        rhetoric as well.]  The accomplishments of the Founding Fathers are given a respectful
        nod, but more than that would be tactless.
