On this date in . . .

1782: Responding to a suggestion from military leaders that Congress was inept and that the U.S. should become a monarchy, General George Washington refused the title of King George the First of the United States and insisted the schemers banish such thoughts from their minds.

1868: The Reno Gang pulled off "the great train robbery" at Marshfield, Indiana. They escaped with $98,000 and the locomotive.

1931: The first canned rattlesnake meat was sold in Arcadia, Florida.

1966: 16-year old Bruce Springsteen and the Castilles recorded their first and only single, "That's What You Get" and "Baby I." It was never released.

1967: "Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood" premiered on PBS, featuring Rev. Fred Rogers, a Presbyterian minister from Pittsburgh. It’s public television’s longest running children’s program.

2003: Annika Sorenstam became the first woman since Babe Didrikson Zaharias in 1945 to play against men on the pro tour. She missed the cut by four shots the follow day at the Colonial golf tournament in Fort Worth, Texas.

Why does this not surprise me? Arcadia is like 30mins from the town where I grew up and it was known as a total redneck town when I was growing up.
