Francis Marion Day

In honor of the unsung Revolutionary War hero, The Swamp Fox, the South Carolina legislature has declared 27 February to be Francis Marion Day.

Charlie, an inveterate Jayhawk and Yankee lover, isn't one to celebrate rebels from south of the Mason Dixon (John Brown adorns her office desktop). But in this case, she's willing to make an exception.

Update: Man, this brings back memories from childhood for Abu Muqawama, mainly of driving through Francis Marion State Forest on the way to see his relatives in South Carolina. Also, the great Walt Disney movie that Abu Muqawama and his mother used to watch. Ho, snap, it's on YouTube!
