Today's History

A few things that happened today in history, April 24:

In 1184 BC, the Grreks entered Troy by using the Trojan Horse…

In 1898, the US declared war on Spain…

and in 1800, John Adams approved $5000 for the purchase of “such books as may be necessary for the use of congress.” – the Library of Congress.

So, in honor of the day I say we read a book, visit a library, ride a horse, hide in something or declare war!

No, not that last one.  Perhaps make peace with somebody.  🙂

Or you could refresh your memory of the Trojan horse story here and watch a really cheesy video of it put on by some high school boys.  (Warning, contains lots of equally cheesy violence with fake swords and such!).
