That's right. Although fighting ended in 1898, the final vestige of that war is finally coming to a close: the Federal Excise Tax implemented to pay for war is ending.

If history proves a good indicator, we should be done paying for the war in Iraq sometime after 2114, depending on when final troop withdrawal takes place.

From the article: The last portion of the tax, pertaining only to local telephone service, remains in effect.

It isn't over yet!

Oops. But at least they're trying to end it. Once they get the 19th century conflicts tied up, they can get to work on the 20th century. That means they'll be able to work on today's 21st century problems in, oh, ... *bfffft* my calculator can go that high.
