Just to be different, 1st Bull Run.

Maybe if the Yankees had done better the war wouldn't have been so long and bloody

Missed the part where "Black Day" is defined. I could easily say it was the day I inducted. The defeat on the Wabash 1791 by Little Turtle springs to mind. I would agree with My Lai since that was my war and my generation. H

My vote would be for the Battle of Savo Island. Three heavy cruisers sunk and the 1st MARDIV ashore and cut off on Guadalcanal. Not a happy day for the US.
