These days in Iranian history are of high importance. One hundred years ago, Iranian people and scholars stood together to limit the power of the King and this uprising against the king was named Iran's Constitutional Revolution and during these days in August, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of this movement and we also commemorate the historical fact that Iranian people were the first nation in the middle-east to rise up and limit the powers of their ruling monarch in a constitutional revolution like modern European nations.
Having said that, there is an unknown hero we dearly remember in Iran, and this man was an American citizen who stood shoulder to shoulder with his Iranian brothers and fought for their freedom and gave his life for their cause as well. He should be remembered and appreciated!
Howard Baskerville became Iran's first American martyr and hero!
I thought I should appreciate his sacrifice in my homeland and allocate a simple post on him so every one who doesnt know about him, becomes aware of this hero.
((THIS IS A RE-POST FROM LAST AUGUST))
