Public Service Announcement

I would be remiss if I neglected to wish you all a happy Casimir Pulaski Day.

Some background information: Casimir Pulaski Day is celebrated in Illinois on the first Monday in March, to mark the birth of Casimir Pulaski on March 4. There is a separate holiday, General Pulaski Memorial Day, which commemorates Pulaski's death in the Siege of Savannah. As a side note, 500 Haitian free men of color fought with the French army on behalf of the Americans in the Siege of Savannah.
