Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.
Today’s quote … “After a bitter debate between representatives from north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line, the House agreed to a bill retaining New York City as the temporary residence and locating the permanent capital on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. Most representatives expected Wright’s Ferry, renamed Columbia in 1788, to be the specific site. Instead the Senate named Germantown, seven miles north of Philadelphia.” – from this George Washington University reference
