Well, that's the natural order of things. First hand knowledge of the Revolution faded away almost 200 years ago. Now we mark it with grilling hot dogs and terrifying dogs with firecrackers over a few days in July.

It is a shame that nearly all Americans take an oversimplified +ACI-good guys vs. bad guys+ACI view of the Civil War. But the national amnesia started around 1870 on that one.

Hardly anybody remembers the Maine, anymo

It would be better had the American people fully understood this whole sorry episode, especially in the last half of the 20th Century.
