In case you aren’t watching the Royal Wedding and all the fanfare that goes with it, there is one WWI program  on Saturday morning, May 19th, on C-SPAN3.  That is a repeat from last weekend of American Artifacts:  World War I Soldiers and Art in the Trenches.  It airs at 9:00 a.m. Central.

In a trivial note that may be more in keeping with the Addams Family rather than the Royal Family, you may have heard that the happy couple are getting married on the anniversary of the beheading of Anne Boleyn.  We wish them well.
