    Ulysses S. Grant was also ticketed for driving his horse-drawn carriage too fast, during his first term as the 18th president (he was president from 1869-77). Some sources say he was fined $5, others say $20.

    I’ve got to get me some of those trees. I bet they’re great for keeping stray dogs out of the yard.

    Geez. I just looked up info on the Manchineel Tree. Skin and eye irritation?? What I found says it “blisters” the skin and trying to burn the tree can cause blindness if the smoke gets in your eyes. Eating it’s fruit can be fatal. That’s one nasty tree!!

    I thought i read that during the Civil War they dropped some sort of bombs from hot air balloons. I also know that some Amish kids got in trouble for hooking radios up to the batteries used for lights on the wagons.

    Actually, Nov. 1911 was well before WWI (began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918). Guess they were just getting warmed up for serious warfare.
