I just noticed this...you still counting birthdays? I gave it up a few years back.

All the Best and enjoy the day.

And many happy returns!

You're all a week early. I have it on good authority (OK, Wikipedia) that Meade's birthday is New Year's Eve.

Purely in the interests of pedantry of course.

I can't help it if he was born on the wrong day! Canny chap, though... got married the same date (years later, for pedants) so he'd never forget. Probably suggested to Margaretta that she wouldn't give him a birthday gift and he wouldn't give her an anniversary gift - so she owed him only one.

Thank you all. Perhaps I am too cynical about the old Snapping Turtle:
CAMP PIERPONT, VA.,
December 31, 1861.
Do you know, to-day is our wedding-day and my birthday. Twenty-one years ago we pledged our faith to each other, and I doubt if any other couple live who, with all the ups and downs of life, have had more happiness with each other than you and I. I trust a merciful Providence will spare us both to celebrate yet many returns of the day, and that we shall see our children advancing in life prosperously and happily.
.

Amen, GGM. Amen
