Saturday, September 1, 2012
Today is the first of September. There are only four months left of 2012. It's hard to believe the year has gone so fast. So many things have changed in just eight months.
I was wondering what happened on this date back in history and I found the following:
Aaron Burr was acquitted of treason by a circuit court in Richmond, Virginia, on the grounds that he was not present when an overt act was committed, 1807
The city of Atlanta, Georgia was evacuated by Confederate forces commanded by General John B. Hood, 1865
World War II began with the Nazi invasion of Poland, 1939
Japan's formal surrender ending WW II, 1945 (September 2 in Tokyo due to time change)
The Wreck of the Titanic was found off the coast of Newfoundland, 1985
Who knows what will happen today - besides rain!
