Washington, Decembrist

George Washington statue

On December 26, 1799, four thousand people attended George Washington’s funeral where Henry Lee III honored him as “”first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

The Decembrist revolt againt Tsar Nicholas I occurred on the 26th of December in 1825. It was, alas, put down. Later revolts would prove less liberty-minded, more communist, and far bloodier.
