This day in history.....

A couple of things caught my eye today that happened on this day in history. Enjoy!

1790 - George Washington delivers the first State of the Union Address address in New York City. (Wonder if we can clone him......the bunch we have running now couldn't stand in his shadow)

1815 - War of 1812: Battle of New Orleans - Andrew Jackson leads American forces in victory over the British. (Huzzah! Huzzah!)

1835 - The United States national debt is 0 for the first time. (Doubt that will ever happen again)

2008 - Joe Gibbs resigns as head coach and team president of my beloved Washington Redskins (Let the mourning begin!!!!)
