February 28th 1827

The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad became the first U.S. railway chartered for commercial transport of passengers and freight.



March 1st 1780

Pennsylvania became the first state in the country to pass an Abolition Act. This law ended slavery through gradual emancipation. Children born to enslaved women were enslaved only until their 28th birthdays, at which point they became free persons.



March 2nd 1949

The first automatic street lights went into operation in New Milford, Connecticut. Prior to this development, electric street lamps (not to be confused with traffic control lights) had to be turned on manually or by timer, regardless of lighting conditions.



March 3 1879

Belva Lockwood became the first woman admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court



March 4 1789

The federal government started to operate under the terms of the U.S. Constitution, as the Confederation Congress ceded power. March 4th was the Constitution’s first official day in business. The first modern Congress convened in New York City at Federal Hall. However, there was a major problem with the first session of the new Congress: only 22 of the 81 members showed up.


Three lunches and a meme


WELCOME TO SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS! MY NAME IS ANNA STUDER, AND I AM A FOOD CRITIC. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF MY LUNCH SINCE THE THIRD MONDAY OF SCHOOL. I don’t want to make the lunch ladies look bad, because they have to make lunch for 600 students a day, and the government won't let them make things that they could last year, so imagine how difficult it must be. THEY WORK SO HARD, AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!

Meme of the week:

When your bananas commit dead

Last night, the three Cavendish siblings all committed dead overnight in a local Greenfield home. They will be missed, best wishes and condolences to their family.

I hope you thought my reviews were somewhat accurate! Thanks for checking out the lunch ratings by me, Anna Studer, Food Reviewer. See you next week!
