On This Date
The long march to today. 

In 1864 – Elements of the Union Army led by Major General William T Sherman begin their assault on Atlanta as Sherman attempts to draw Confederate General John Bell Hood and his Army of Tennessee away from their defenses in the American Civil War. The maneuver worked, and while Hood’s army was not destroyed Hood’s army abandoned the city with Sherman occupying Atlanta on September 2nd. History refers to this battle as the Battle of Jonesboro. 

In 1984 – Pinklon Thomas of the US wins the WBC heavyweight championship, defeating champion Tim Witherspoon in a 12-round majority decision in Las Vegas. In June 1`985 Thomas defended his title with an eighth-round TKO over Mike Weaver and lost it in a unanimous decision to Trevor Berbick in March 1986. In 1992 Thomas won the IBO and WBF heavyweight titles before losing them to Lawrence Carter in 1993. 

In 1959 – The Browns are at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the second of four consecutive weeks with The Three Bells. The song also went to #1 in Australia, was in its first of ten consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s country chart and the song also peaked at #10 on Billboard’s soul chart. It was the first pop hit for the group, their fifth of six Top 10 country hits and remains their only #1 song on either chart. 

Some Philosophy Crap
The wisdom of the ages. Whatever. 

Love can sometimes be a substitute for money. Money can sometimes substitute for love. There is no substitute for time.

Georg Letham, Physician and Murderer
