On July 3rd, 1775 George Washington took command of the Continental Army in Cambridge, Massachusetts (just across the street from Harvard). Before leaving to join the army he wrote a letter to Martha on June 18th:

"My Dearest,

I am now set down to write to you on a subject, which fills me with inexpressible concern, and this concern is greatly aggravated and increased, when I reflect upon the uneasiness I know it will give you. It has been determined in Congress, that the whole army raised for the defense of the American cause shall be put under my care, and that it is necessary for me to proceed immediately to Boston to take upon me the command of it.

You may believe me, my dear Patsy, when I assure you, in the most solemn manner, that, so far from seeking this appointment, I have used every endeavor in my power to avoid it… But as it has been a kind of destiny, that has thrown me upon this service, I shall hope that my undertaking it is designed to answer some good purpose.”

Washington’s headquarters remained in Cambridge until April 1776. That same month Harvard presented Washington with the first law degree in the college’s history as a token of appreciation for his services to the country.

retrocampaigns:

The May 26, 1860, edition of Harper’s Weekly, with a story on the new Republican Party presidential nominee, Abraham Lincoln.

The national convention had opened on May 16 in Chicago, a plus for the Illinois-raised Lincoln, but the frontrunner was William Seward of New York. Seward, however, had weakened his chances among moderate Republicans with his former antislavery radicalism. Lincoln’s less-adamant position—opposing only the extension of slavery into the territories—was viewed as giving him strength in the “battleground” states of the lower North, which the Republicans had lost in the 1856 election. There were 465 delegates packed into the Chicago convention hall. Seward won on the first two ballots, with Lincoln coming in second. On the third ballot, four Ohioans switched their votes to Lincoln, followed by a wild stampede of delegates for the “rail splitter.”

Salvini: ci occupumiamo degli sfigati di tutto il mondo, non di quelli di casa nostra

Salvini ci sa fare - lo dicono anche i numeri della Lega raccolti un mese fa. E’ tipo l’alunno che non sta troppo simpatico ai prof che invece adorano i tipi alla Renzi, ma che sa mettere a tacere il cocco dei docenti. Peccato solo per le sue origini di sinistra, che riaffiorano quando il discorso si fa serio sull’economia. In più: si è fatto largo con lo slogan Basta Euro!. Avrei preferito, dato che ho votato Lega in un’occasione in passato, che dicesse: oh, signori, in Veneto hanno fatto il referendum per l’indipendenza e tra i diversi quesiti sottoposti hanno scelto di restare nell’unione monetaria piuttosto che creare una propria valuta: facciamo così, noi al Nord ci restiamo, che tanto lo sapete tutti che se chiudiamo noi, sono cazzi amari anche per Germania & Co.. Gli altri, si arrangino, si diano appuntamento da Paragone. Invece hanno mollato Miglio per prendersi Barnard.

Nella controreplica all’europarlamentare tedesco Weber, che l’aveva criticato ricordando che l’Italia è sopra al 130% di debito, Renzi gli ha giustamente rinfacciato che fu la Germania a sforare le regole per prima nel 2003. Ma non si è limitato a ciò: lo ha anche informato che a fianco…

In precedenza aveva pure ricordato che l’Italia dà all’UE più di quanto riceva, “ma ne siamo contenti”. Ocio…
