Celebrating My 2nd Birthday

Sharing my birthday is David Letterman (born in 1947).

April 12th also has some historical significance – it was the day that marked the beginning of the American Civil War. Shortly after 4:30 a.m. on April 12, 1861, the newly formed Confederate States Army (led by General Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard) bombarded Fort Sumter, near Charleston, South Carolina.
