DAY 2 - This day in legal and military history

January 2

NATIONAL Science Fiction Day

Today in legal and military [and occasional oddities] history

1788 Georgia admitted to the US as the 4th state

1839 Photographer Louis Daguerre takes the first photograph of the moon.  [I wonder if he found any cheese.]

1870 Construction begins on the Brooklyn Bridge

2017 Rose Parade on January 2 because of a long-ago agreement to never hold it on Sunday, to avoid spooking horses tethered outside churches.  We take down our Christmas tree and decorations while watching the parade, which is broadcast live and then re-runs ALL day in SoCal.
