Today in History
In 1784, the US Congress created the United States Army on this date. On June 3, 1864seven thousand of their solders were killed in the first 30 minutes of the Battle of Cold Springs Harbor. I was an Air Force guy myself, but I give thanks every day for those who live and die defending us.
In 1937, Mrs. Wallace Simpson was married to the Duke of Windsor. This may have been the best thing to ever happen to Britain. David would have made a horrible war time king. Think back friends, can you think of a more vapid couple than these two?
And solely for our MIA friend Sarte's benefit and pleasure, on this date in 1888, "Casey at the Bat" was published.
