On This Date in History, May 25:

1864:  the Battle of New Hope Church, about 25 miles west of here.   Our neice bought a house that the wooded New Hope Battle Park is right behind them.  She said you can hear gunshots from that direction a lot.  I hope the wonder if the noises are from reenactors or ghosts redoing the past?

1927:  Henry Ford stopped production on Model T's and began production on Model A's.  Efficient, no?

1937: The first airmail letter left New York, circled the globe and returned to New York (really).  I guess it was also the first airmail letter that was “returned to sender”.
