MY REVIEW: This is a fun blog. It gives the happenings on each day, for a number of years.

On May 1, 1805, for example, the state of Virginia passed a law requiring all freed slaves to leave the state, or risk either imprisonment or deportation.

On May 1, 1863, the Battle of Chancellorsville began.

On May 1, 1877, U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes withdrew all Federal troops form the south, ending Reconstruction.

This is one of several blogs that gives the exact same information - I suspect they all get it from one feed - which I couldn't find. I suppose it's all available at Wikipedia. However, it's nice to have it delivered directly to your Kindle every day, so its worth checking out.

Ms. Cairo writes two blogs of her own:
Winged Victory: Women in Aviation
Volcano Seven: Treasure and Treasure Hunters
