Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 18

…Learning is not merely the acquisition of knowledge. It is the becoming of a person who inhabits the landscape with an identity whose dynamic construction reflects our trajectory through that landscape. This journey within and across practices shapes who we are.” ~ Etienne Wenger-Trayner, et al

… A small group who make things happen

…And the great majority…

Who don’t even know what is happening.

150 years ago

“I received your letter of this date containing the terms of the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia as proposed by you. As they are substantially the same as those expressed in your letter of the 8th inst., they are accepted.”

With those words, on April 9th, 150 years ago, General Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia. His surrender brought an end officially to the American Civil War. Over 75,000 had died in the struggle. There are many resources-famous battles and famous people, to fictional accounts and scholarly works- to commemorate this historic anniversary.

See especially The Library of Congress and Digital Public Library’s holdings.
