April 19th Events in History

1775  The American Revolution begins

1861  First blood in the Civil War

1897  First Boston Marathon run

1993  Branch Davidian compound burns

1995 Truck bomb explodes in Oklahoma City and this day is National Oklahoma City Bombing Commemoration Day

And April 19th is NATIONAL HANGING OUT DAY. I got all excited thinking this meant like hanging out at Mac’s or somewhere with friends. Oh no, it has to do with hanging laundry out on a clothesline! What’s up with that? But to go with this it’s also National Garlic Day and Will Rogers was once quoted speaking of Gilroy, California known as the Garlic Capital of the World“…the only place in America where you can marinate a steak just by hanging it out on a clothesline.” What a great correlation to all this stuff.
