Czar Alexander II assassinated in St. Petersburg

Czar Alexander II, the ruler of Russia since 1855, is killed in the streets of St. Petersburg by a bomb thrown by a member of the revolutionary “People’s Will” group. The People’s Will, organized in 1879, employed terrorism and assassination in their attempt to overthrow Russia’s czarist autocracy. They murdered officials and made several attempts on the czar’s life before finally assassinating him on March 13, 1881. As czar, Alexander did much to liberalize and modernize Russia, including the abolishment of serfdom in 1861. However, when his authority was challenged, he turned repressive, and he vehemently opposed movements for political reform.”

3rd Annual Green Up Waterville happening on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22nd this year! Share the post, invite friends to the page, and show up on 4/22!
💪🏼 Let’s work together to keep our sidewalks, ditches and roadways something to be proud about instead of something to shake our head in disbelief about. We’ve had about 50 people show up to help each year, and overflowed two dumpsters last year with 125 bags of garbage… let’s make it 75 people, 3 dumpsters and 200 bags this year! Routes will cover Waterville, Sangerfield, Deansboro and Oriskany Falls this year. Big goals and more details to follow! 💚🌎🗑️♻️🌳
