The following appeared in today's Almanac in the Chicago Tribune:

In 1999, President Bill Clinton posthumously pardoned Henry Flipper,
the first black graduate of West Point, whose military career was
tarnished by a racially motivated discharge.

Does anyone else get a first reading in which the pardon occurred
after Clinton's death?
