Mid-April Madness

An interesting American history observation…

I’m sure I’m not the first one to notice this peculiar alignment, far behind many conspiracy theorists and enemies of the Patriot/Militia Movement.  But… a lot of firepower, heroic, tragic, as well as controversial, seems to go off historically during the days of Mid-Late April. Here’s a few:

Revolutionary War:

Battles of Lexington and Concord (Boston, Massachusetts), “Shot Heard ‘Round the World”: April 19 (1776)

U.S. Civil War: Ft Sumter: April 12, and the first blood of the war: April 19 (both 1861) in Baltimore.

HItler’s Birthday: April 20 (1889)

Waco Siege: Koresh compound siege concludes with explosions and gunfire at hands of ATF and FBI: April 19 (1993)

Timothy McVeigh detonates truck bomb in front of Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City April 19 (1995)

Columbine High School Massacre April 20 (1999)

And within the past two days, April 16, and April 17… explosions in Boston and Waco.

 

Of course, some of these events are not coincidences due to inspiration (Hitler-Columbine, Koresh-McVeigh), but it presents a pretty thought provoking concept.
