The (Latest) UNIFICATION Of Italy Was Proclaimed This Day, 156-Years Ago — March 17, 1861

hjby Anura Guruge



The Proclamation was by the First Italian Parliament, meeting in Turin. The Parliament had been assembled by Victor Emmanuel.

On March 17, 1861, this Parliament proclaimed that Italy was once again UNITED and that Victor Emmanuel would be the new King of Italy.

It took ANOTHER 10-days before Rome was declared the capital of Italy — since they had to placate a very irate pope!

I still can’t establish by Devanee, who did attend, as to how many other ACS kids went. All I know was that it was a full, full-size school bus. Obviously I can’t also determine whether it was open to all or only selected kids were allowed to attend — and, of course, parents had to consent to it.

Since I could not get her to talk to me about it, I got her to write a 4-page report. She did that first thing this morning after she got back from our run (or my run, her walk) up Prospect Mountain Hill. Per her report there were 40 school buses there. She had claimed that it was broadcast live on ‘radio’. I couldn’t find it and I checked NHPR and YouTube.

Devanee wrote, the following () about ‘Lizzie’. She was a featured speaker and I could find a video of her from this same event — last year. That follows (↓↓). This is good. I am glad. All of this is great stuff.

Nancy alluded to the fact that it would be nicer if all the ‘posts’ were in one place.

Her wish is my command.

My continuing efforts, at the urging of ‘Nancy’, to accurately document as much of this history as possible.

The above BBC page has more of the Edward George Honey letter than I had in my earlier post. So that is good.

I would love to get my hands on the 7 November 1919 The Times of London with the actual proclamation.

Thank you, Nancy.
