ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected our country's 16th president. As part of the job, he got the White House, a nice office and theater tickets.

In 1861, Jefferson Davis was elected to a six-year term as President of the Confederate States of America. He didn't serve his full term. Neither did the confederacy.

On this date in 1862, the first direct telegraphic link between New York and San Francisco was established. The first message from San Francisco: "We've got gold and Yankees suck!"

In 1869 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as Rutgers defeats Princeton six goals to four.

That was in the day before the extra point and before cheerleaders. All they had were "Motivation Counselors."

College football was much different back then, especially before the game, as tailgates had not been invented yet.

I'm sure my great-great grandfather maintained the family tradition and missed that pick, too.

Up until that time, guys got things done on Saturday afternoons in the fall.

On this date in 1984, the New Orleans World's Fair filed for bankruptcy. Sort of prevents having to ask if it was a successful one, doesn't it? The theme of that year's fair was, "Wow, where'd all the money go?"
