Hi Leslie,really interesting, how much can happen on a given day in history. The alamo going down made me happy, especially cause it happened to Texass.Not a misspelling.
This is great. You know, I'm always a little startled when I read non fiction and come across a significant event happening on my birthday. The original Boston Tea Party took place on my birthday DAY (different year of course :) and I share my birthday with King Charles IV of France and Ozzy Osborne!
I was hatched on "Armistice Day." Because of the parade, no one could get across town to see the new duckling.
