QUOTE OF THE DAY

The little windflower, whose just opened eye is blue as the spring heaven it gazes at.
William C. Bryant


On this day:   June 1, 1779 The court-martial of Benedict Arnold convenes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After a relatively clean record in the early days of the American Revolution, Arnold was charged with 13 counts of misbehavior, including misusing government wagons and illegally buying and selling goods. Although his notorious betrayal was still many months away, Arnold’s resentment over this order and the perceived mistreatment by the American Army would fuel his traitorous decision.
