Today, seven score years ago, Emperor Maximillian of Mexico was executed at the orders of Benito Juárez, after whom Benito Mussolini was named.

On this day, 90 years ago, His Britannic Majesty George V changed the name of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to the House of Windsor. One can wonder whether that would have happened if those United States had taken the advice of the Founders and stayed out of European conflicts.
