Sorry about the short post, but yesterday was the anniversary of the repeal of alcohol prohibition in the US, which I celebrated about 25 times last night.
On this day in 1917, Finland declared independence from Russia. At one time part of Sweden, the country was invaded by Russia and would become part of the Russian Empire in 1809. In the civil war of 1917 the pro-Bolshevik forces were defeated by the pro-conservative independence forces and shortly after that Finland became a republic.
