A couple of lighter, fun 18th century related items I found over the weekend, both dealing with our country's founding fathers.
Did you know that a New York library is missing two of its books that were due in 1789? Guess who checked them out and never returned them?
And I was thrilled to find this posted by a forumite on the Books and Writers Community. It's a parody of Apologize, by One Republic. I've watched that video and am of the opinion that the parody is of higher quality in every way, but then any song with a fiddle solo is going to rank higher with me than one without.
One might surmise that President Washington is probably sorry he did not return those books... but it's too late to apologize.
