82 years ago today, July 13 1936, the Spanish monarchist José Calvo Sotelo was murdered. His assassination sparked the Spanish Civil War, and was one of numerous political murders in Spain that year. It should be remembered that many of the victims of Left/Republican/anarchist violence were centrists and liberals as well as from the monarchist Right.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the murder of the entire Russian Imperial Family and the servants who had remained with them by the Communist tyranny which had seized power in the previous year, and would not relinquish it until over seventy years more had passed. Nicholas II had many faults and failings as Emperor and so did his wife as Empress, but the brutal fate they suffered remains a wicked crime. And there are no possible grounds on which to begin excusing the killing of their innocent children and servitors. There are many enormously larger-scale and even more abhorrent crimes to be laid at Soviet Communism's door, but this one should still stand forever in infamy.

150 years ago this week was the Battle of Aizu in Japan. While the new imperial government of the Meiji Restoration had succeeded in pacifying most of the country, the Tohoku region remained defiant, and Aizu above all else. Aizu, Sendai and other domains bitterly resisted the new order and were defeated. In truth this was not an ideological conflict, or a conflict of old and new values, but rather who would lead the "new" Japan.

However, in Aizuwakamatsu and the wider Tohoku region, the war is still remembered in the same way the American South remembers the Civil War.
