Record number of people pointing out that Julia Ward Howe's Mother's Day Proclamation was a pacifist reaction against the Civil War.

It is not true that she had anything to do with the National Restaurant Association, a group not founded until the 20th century. However, conspiracy theorists love to point out the fact that she was peripherally associated with a company that eventually became Hallmark.

I totally just made that up.
