The Sesquicentennial has begun

'Tis the season, I suppose, March 2011. The privatization of the Sesquicentennial proceeds apace, with Turner Classic Movies devoting April to ACW films. Meanwhile, Colonial Williamsburg has started tours I had assumed were long-standing. I shudder to think how that battle is being presented to the public, BTW.

Last Wednesday, U.S. Senators Jim Webb (D-VA) and Mary L. Landrieu (D-LA) reintroduced the Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission Act, legislation many Americans had hoped to see passed long before now.
I'll call that one DOA.
