Wow, that's a busy month! 23 days to have something to shout about! I had to look some of these up to see what the heck they were. It turns out that evacuation day is 'celebrating' when the Brits were kicked out of Boston during the revolution. Casimir Pulaski, was a Polish born soldier who is remembered for his contribution to American independence and his day is an annual holiday in Illinois. Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole is one of the best-known leaders in Hawaii’s history, born in 1871 and started the process that led to Hawaii being admitted as a fully fledged state of America. (Having done a little study on how Hawaii joined the USA, I am not sure that Kalanianaole was a hero to Hawaiians!) This happened in 1959, 37 years after his death in 1922. And World Tuberculosis Day is a day to raise awareness of the disease and is promoted by organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO)!
