I read this morning about Elmer E. Ellsworth, the first Union officer killed in the Civil War. While once a household name (“Remember Ellsworth!"), his legacy was brief and only academicians and historians are likely to remember him now.

The Calvin and Hobbes strip above seemed particularly apropos today.

I’ve been contemplating my own mortality a lot, lately, and wondering what sort of legacy I might leave behind.
