100 Years Ago Today.

050707maciver.jpgThe blog 100 Years Ago Today delivers news of the “aughts” instead of the “ohs”. Each day, you’ll find a newspaper snippet from 100 years ago. Today’s post has this from May 8, 1907:
Henry MacIver, most recently a major general in the Servian army, died May 6 in New York City. The notice in today's Washington Post said he died with 46 CENTS to his name. That's about 2.5 cents for EACH of the 18 FLAGS he fought under during his long soldier-for-hire career. He fought in Crete, Egypt, Spain, Cuba and Bosnia -- all BEFORE taking up arms for the Confederate States of America as a TEENAGER.
