And now for a brief message. The end of Reconstruction marks the midpoint of American history. So far we've had 95 questions, answers, and explanations. Here is a link to the first half of the year's questions. I hope you have enjoyed receiving the Questions of the Day. There are over 4000 subscribers at this point. The questions are free. But they take a long time to write. If you have found them of value, would you consider making a small donation to support the education of a child in Lira, Uganda? My daughter has worked in Lira with an organization that helps students attend the local school. $500 pays for a year's tuition, room, board, and books for one student. Pictured above is Joshua, whose education was partially funded by last year's subscriber donations. I would love it if Question of the Day subscribers would be able to sponsor Joshua for another year of schooling. I'd recommend $15, which would work out to less than ten cents per question for the whole year. If you would make a small donation via Paypal with the link below, you would be making a real difference in a child's future and I would be very grateful. I will keep this message on the questions for one week. Thank you.
As of today, 12 subscribers have made donations. Thanks.
