An #OTD about two groups of people WHO WERE LITERALLY AT WAR WITH EACH OTHER but still recognized that political differences are no reason to disagree about *science*.
The very first U.S. astronomical expedition, led by Harvard mathematician Samuel Williams, viewed an almost-total eclipse #OTD in 1780. They were allowed to conduct their observations behind British lines even though the Revolutionary War was in full swing.

#OTD in 2004, #RedSox finally broke the “Curse Of The Bambino” after 86 years of suffering. Generations of pain brought to an end by the self-proclaimed idiots. Joe Buck’s call will FOREVER be engraved in my brain. #DirtyWater| #MLB | #WorldSeries

#OTD 35 years ago, the Mets became World Champions for the 2nd time. After falling behind early in Game 7, the Mets rallied with clutch hitting from Hernandez, and HRs from Knight & Strawberry. Fernandez & Orosco pitched brilliantly in relief, and the Mets won 8 to 5. #LGM

#OTD in 1943. A Typhoon IB from 486 Squadron. It was frequently mistaken for a FW190. Hence, the identification markings. #WW2 #HISTORY
