Today -100: March 6, 1915: The burned trenches remained ours


German troops used flamethrowers in an attack in Argonne, but, according to a soldier quoted in La Liberté, they were forced to retreat. “The burned trenches remained ours.”

Belgium protests Germany illegally seizing its machinery, raw materials, etc.

Oops of the Day -100: A French steamer bringing a load of ammunition to Nieuport accidently (alcohol was involved) sailed to Ostend in German-occupied Belgium instead. So it was shelled and sunk.

Motorcyclists protest a pending bill in New York which would require motorcycles to be registered, with license plates.

Headline of the Day -100:

Totally not a euphemism, probably!


George “Honey Boy” Evans, of the Honey Boy Minstrels, the co-writer of “In the Good Old Summer Time,” “I’ll Be True to My Honey Boy,” “Come Take a Trip in My Airship,” and “Standing on the Corner Didn’t Mean No Harm,” dies at 44.
