For all thespians and others who appreciate dramatic arts, today is World Theatre Day; in Venice, seven hundred eight years ago, the city state’s leadership suffered the imposition of a Papal decree that imposed excommunication, interdiction, and a general prohibition of all commercial intercourse, as a result of an alleged Venetian seizure of church property; two centuries and four years later, in 1513, Ponce de Leon and his cohorts began their exploration of the Bahamas region; two hundred twenty-three years back, the U.S. Navy received its authorization for the building of its first fleet of ships from congress; precisely two decades hence, in 1814, in Alabama, troops under Andrew Jackson continued the crushing of Native American resistance with the defeat of Creek forces at Horseshoe Bend;  MORE HERE
