March 10. In 49 BC, Julius Caesar invaded Italy. In 1629, Charles I dissolved Parliament, beginning his 11-year Personal Rule. (What? Don’t tell Outrage Orange this.) In 1848, the Mexican-American War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell made the first successful telephone call. In 1910, slavery was abolished in China (so to speak). In 1969, James Earl Ray pled guilty to assassinating Martin Luther King, Jr., later recanting. In 1971, the voting age was lowered to 18 in America. In 1977, astronomers discovered the rings of Uranus. In 1979, James Brown played the Grand Ole Opry. In 2018, you all had a fabulous time at the Soapstone International Women’s Day event. Happy Birthday, Lillian Wald, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Sam Jaffe, Neneh Cherry, Edie Brickell. It’s Harriet Tubman Day and Tibetan Uprising Day. Mission: Come on.
