Two Shots on April 19

I was over at Tam's blog this morning, and saw something that had never occured to me before.....April 19, 1775. A shot heard across the land as a nation is born.

April 19th, 1993. Another shot heard across the land with very different implications.

What kind of irony is that?

Dude April 19 is THE day. I believe the warsaw ghetto uprising started. I can't remember all of them but I believe there are several others.

Xavier,
John is correct April 19 is also the anniversary of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising. And not by coincidence, it started on the first night of Passover, a holiday which celebrates freedom. Yes the ghetto residents died, but they died on their feet, not in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
