January 1, 1808


Ad Orientem has a reminder for us all that this January 1 is an important anniversary in the history of the United States and humanity. On January 1, 1808, exactly 200 years ago, the importation of slaves to America was outlawed. We still have a long way to go as recent events have shown us, but this New Year's Day is a good time to celebrate the progress we've made.
