 Sports Factor - 17/08/01: 1868 Aboriginal Cricket Team
When these indigenous cricketers arrived in England, in May of 1868, they were met with a kind of racial fascination; remember this is the period of the evolutionary controversies sparked by the publication of Charles Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species’ in 1859.
Whether it was the cricket or the demonstrations of ‘native’ sports, that created the greater public interest is pretty hard to know at this distance.
While the Central Board for the Protection of Aborigines had had no power to stop the tour going ahead in 1868, by November 1869, legislation was passed that gave the Governor of Victoria much more control over where Aborigines could live, and over business arrangements that could be conducted between Europeans and Aborigines.

 Thanksgiving and the Jews: Pennsylvania, 1868
It was not until 1863, in the midst of a terrible Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln fixed the last Thursday of each November as a "day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father." After the Union triumphed, Thanksgiving Day became an even more significant observance in the northern states.
By 1868, Philadelphia Jewish population was among the largest in any American city.
In 1868, Pennsylvania’s rabbis expressed what would become the majority American view: government-declared holidays should — with the possible exception of Christmas — be totally devoid of religious content and that each individual may bring to it whatever, if any, spirituality he or she wishes.

 Logan's words as appropriate now as in 1868
None has done it better than Gen. John A. Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, who issued General Order No. 11 on May 5, 1868, declaring May 30 to be a day to place flowers on the graves of the Civil War dead.
The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land.
In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstance may permit.
