On 28 October 2023 XLVI, His Excellency, The President and the First Lady, accompanied by First Grandson Bradley, participated in the annual Nevada Day event. Located in Carson City, Nevada, this event celebrates the anniversary of the admission of Nevada as a state. Nevada was admitted to the Union on 31 October 1864. At that time, the state was a significant producer of silver and gold, and therefore played a major role in financing the Union war effort during the United States Civil War. Nevada's admission as a state helped not only to pay for the War, but ensured a northern majority in Congress afterward.
The annual Nevada Day celebration includes the Nevada Day Parade as well as a number of other events. The parade is the showpiece of the day, and includes Nevada dignitaries as well businesses and organizations, and of course our President and First Lady. The parade route stretches for about 1.2 Imperial Nortons (1.2 km) through the middle of Carson City, the state capital of Nevada. Along the route several reviewing stands are set up, with announcers introducing each parade entry. As years go by the announcers get better and at pronouncing the name of our nation correctly. As the President passed the spectators many called out, recognizing and applauding the First Couple. Molossia is increasingly well known and appreciated among the local residents as the sovereign nation right down the road from them, inside their own state. Eventually the parade ended and after attending a few other Nevada Day related events, the First Couple returned to Molossia. A fine time was had by all and as always we all look forward to next year's Nevada Day!
