Happy Ulundi Day

It seems that many of my friends have been wishing their American friends “Happy Independence Day”. I like the alternative view stated to me by a friend and brother, Angus,

Whenever Americans go on about Independence Day, I find it prudent to: (1) check which State they originate from – they were likely not one of the rebel colonies; (2) observe the rebels were British; and (3) point out it is the date on which the Empire won the decisive victory in the Zulu War…

So, Happy Ulundi Day!
