    Sir Winston Churchill: “Lee was the noblest American who had ever lived and one of the greatest commanders known to the annals of war.” During a tour through the South in 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt told the aged Confederate veterans in Richmond, Virginia, “Here I greet you in the shadow of the statue of your commander, General Robert E. Lee. You and he left us memories which are part of the memories bequeathed to the entire nation by all the Americans who fought in the War Between the States.” Saturday January 19, 2019, is the 212th birthday of Robert E....

  • Illinois celebrates first official 'Barack Obama Day'

    Illinois government offices remained open Saturday as the home state of former President Barack Obama commemorated his birthday under a new state law. The bill marking Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” throughout the state was enacted without making the date a full-scale holiday. The Illinois House narrowly rejected a plan to make Obama’s birthday a state holiday amid worries that the cash-strapped state could not afford to give state state employees another paid day off.Obama turned 57. The law hailed Obama’s efforts to protect the rights of Americans and build “bridges across communities.”

    Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin’s birth certificate will always be a conversation starter. That’s because in the spot for “location,” it reads, “Born in Chik-Fil-A,” according to a Facebook post from her father, Robert Griffin. Her dad, who isn’t a doctor, is listed as the attending physician. Robert Griffin detailed the Tuesday night of a lifetime in that Facebook post. It all started, he wrote, when Team Griffin pulled into the Chik-Fil-A parking lot to drop off their other two daughters with a family friend, on their way to University Hospital.

    Falon Griffin, was already in labor, and the Chick-fil-A was closed, but Falon desperately had to go to the restroom. The couple banged on the restaurant’s glass doors around 10:30 p.m., and staff members cleaning up for the night let Falon, who was 38 weeks pregnant at the time according to KSAT, and her husband inside. When Falon began to scream, the night took a sharp turn for everyone involved. “I’m about to dial 911, I open the door and she’s just screaming,” Brenda Enriquez, the Chick-fil-A store director, told KSAT. Robert came running. There was no way the ambulance...

    On midnight, May 14, 1948, the state of Israel came into being and was immediately recognized by the United States and the Soviet Union. A homeland for the thousands of Jews who were persecuted and displaced during World War II, Israel was attacked the next day by the Transjordanian Army, the Arab Legion, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Against all odds, Israel survived. The Armistice between Israel and her enemies was negotiated by Ralph Bunche, the first African-American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1947, Ralph Bunche set up a meeting between two members of UNSCOP and Menachem Begin,...

    President Trump admitted in a phone interview by “Fox & Friends” on Thursday — his wife Melania’s birthday — that he didn’t have time to get her a gift. When asked what he got the first lady for her 48th birthday, the commander-in-chief responded: “I better not get into that ’cause I may get in trouble.” “Maybe I didn’t get her so much,” Trump said, before stumbling over his words, saying: “I tell you what — she has done … I got her a very beautiful card. You know, I’m very busy to be running around looking for presents, OK?”
