Today in History

Today (March 16) was an interesting day in history! Lots going on...

James Madison was born on this day in 1751 (let's hope Texas doesn't cut him out of their history classes, too!)

Rossini married Spanish soprano Isabelle Colbran in 1822

Artist Rosa Bonheur was born in 1822 (you can see her enormous painting The Horse Fair at the Met)

And The Scarlet Letter, the bane of high school students everywhere, was published in 1822!
And tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day! I'm over at Risky Regencies today planning the party. Come and join us!
