Invention of the Accordion

I just heard on the radio that today marks the anniversary of the invention of the accordion. Let’s celebrate, friends.

Of course the guy on the radio had some strange information, that the accordion was invented in Philadelphia in 1854, when any old fool knows it’s been around since at least 1822 in Germany. By the 1840s, it was already popular in the United States.

Regardless, any reason to celebrate this king of instruments is a good reason, isn’t it, so let’s party!
