CESARE D'AQUANNI
By Josephine D'Aquanni
FROSINONE

My father-in-law was thrilled to arrive in the U. S. It was something he dreamed about since he was a little boy. After he was in the U. S. a month or so he wrote his cousin , who was living in Rome & stated that the U. S. was so excited that he came to the U. S. that they also gave him a very big parade.

The day he arrived was March 17, St. Patrick's Day & he thought the parade was for him. Many, many years passed before he realized it was a traditional parade on St. Patty's day. Before he passed away his 33 grandchildren & great great grandchildren enjoyed his true story.There were a few people who thought he made the story up, but he had proof of the date he arrived & proudly showed it with his citizenship paper. His name was Cesare D'Aquanni of Mt. Vernon, N. Y
