Just what happened one hundred and fifty years ago (1865 this July)? Funny you asked:
--David Herold, Lewis Paine, George Atzerodt and Mary Surratt
were hanged for their part in the Lincoln conspiracy--
--P.T. Barnum reported none of the animals escaped the fire
at the Barnum Museum except for a few snakes :(  --
--Wild Bill Hickok was arrested for murder of David Tutt for which he was later acquitted--
--Andersonville National Cemetery was established in Georgia--
Sure sounds like picking up this Wednesday's Webster Echo.
Read all about it in this month's calendar!
