Although many locations in Lancaster and York Counties rang bells today to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Columbia did not. Not one peal from one bell in one bell tower in the many churches around town. Not one celebration or observance around town or on the bridge. And this, after last night's meeting where it was mentioned that our history should be promoted. You know - our history, like the bridge burning that the town was directly involved in, which directly precipitated one of the pivotal battles of the Civil War. You know - Gettysburg. Yeah . . that history. Nothing important or anything. Just another missed opportunity, and we can't afford too many more of those.
