Today -100: February 10, 1913: Of marches, revolts, and god-fearing Germans


Headline of the Day -100: “March 400 Miles, Slay 200.” Portuguese troops in Mozambique do the marching, in order to kill rebels who killed some settlers. As was the custom.

A military revolt in Mexico, led by Gen. Félix Díaz, who some scamp cadets release from prison. The presidential palace is under siege with President Madero inside.

Kaiser Bill says “We Germans fear God and nothing else in the world.” He says Prussia was conquered by Napoleon because it had lost its faith in God, and it unified Germany because it found that faith again.
