Today in History (June 15th)
On this day in 1775, the Second Continental Congress voted unanimously to appoint George Washington head of the Continental Army.
1846: The United States and Britain signed a treaty settling a boundary dispute between Canada and the United States in the Pacific Northwest.
1864: Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton signed an order establishing a military burial ground, which became Arlington National Cemetery. (I had the personal honor to check out this cemetary and the significance of these hallowed grounds left me in awe)
It’s amazing when I look back at all the accomplishments this country has done through the centuries in such a short amount of time compared to our brothers and sisters overseas. Indeed we are a great nation.
