  After the Capture, 21st March, 1918
On the morning of March 21st, 1918, an intense bombardment was set up by the enemy, and it was soon very evident that something of no mere importance was about to happen.
Marching through thick mud for what at the time seemed endless hours, proved to be a tiring ordeal, but we managed to find some relief in our amazement at the severe losses experienced by the enemy in this final desperate attack on the Allied lines.
We were marched to Le Cateau and on arrival in the town had the doubtful honour of witnessing the Kaiser and little Willie, both resplendent in gay uniforms bedecked with medals, journeying to witness the progress of their troops.

 Why March 21st?
The astronomical March equinox (northward equinox, spring equinox for the northern hemisphere) corresponds to the moment when Sun is at 0° ecliptic longitude, at which point the ecliptic intersects the celestial equator.
It is said that March 21st was selected as the ecclesiastical vernal equinox because the Church of Alexandria, whose staff were reputed to have astronomical expertise, reckoned that March 21st was the date of the equinox in 325 AD, the year of the First Council of Nicaea.
By constraining the equinox to land on March 21st, the Gregorian Reform implicitly shifted the epoch of the Proleptic Gregorian Calendar two days later than the Julian Calendar, as it was pointed out above that in the first year after the Julian Calendar epoch the equinox was on March 23rd.

 Why isn't Norouz on March 21st anymore?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
I mean, when many of us were growing up, the first day of spring, also known as the vernal equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere) was on March 21, not March 20.
During the 20th century, at the longitude of Greenwich, England, the vernal equinox landed on March 21 no fewer than 58 times (39 times between 1901 and 1951).
There are several factors to account for the date shift, including variations in our Gregorian calendar, the precession or "wobble" of the Earth’s axis and the pull of gravity from the other planets, which (ever so slightly) affects the location of the Earth in its orbit.

 WHY THE MARCH EQUINOX IS THE ONLY TRUE EARTH DAY
Throughout the many decades of my life previous to my founding of EARTH DAY March 21, 1970, I pondered over how the many differences that confront our world could find a peaceful resolution, instead of being in an almost constant confrontation.
