Today -100: January 30, 1921: Oops


The French Supreme Court rules that 6 soldiers shot for cowardice in 1914 were innocent and orders pensions for their widows and children. At their court-martial, a lieutenant denied that he panicked and gave a retreat order, which he did.

Obit of the Day: Prince Kropotkin, anarchist extraordinaire (although the NYT calls him a nihilist). I’m not sure if this makes him a good anarchist/nihilist, but he’s not actually dead.

A father and his two daughters, unbeknownst to each other, all elope and marry within 24 hours of each other.
