Today, March 4th in History
1634 Samuel Cole, an immigrant from England, opens the first tavern in Boston, Massachusetts. Cole was an early settler of Boston in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, arriving with the Winthrop Fleet in 1630. The Winthrop Fleet was a group of 11 ships led by John Winthrop that carried about 1,000 Puritans plus livestock and provisions from England to New England over the summer of 1630, during the period of the so-called Great Migration. He was an innkeeper and confectioner, and in 1634 established the first house of entertainment in the colony, called the Three Mariners. He opened the first tavern in the area on 4 March 1634 in what later became downtown Boston, but in 1645 relocated his business to the future Merchants Row between State Street and Faneuil Hall. Cole's establishment was a center of social and political life in Boston.
1789 The first Congress of the United States meets in New York and declares that the Constitution is in effect. In 1776, it took the momentous step of declaring America’s independence from Britain. Five years later, the Congress ratified the first national constitution, the Articles of Confederation, under which the country would be governed until 1789, when it was replaced by the current U.S. Constitution.
1791 Vermont is admitted as the 14th state. It is the first addition to the original 13 colonies.
1914 Doctor Fillatre of Paris, France successfully separates Siamese twins.
1975 Queen Elizabeth II knights Charlie Chaplin. In 1975, The Little Tramp became Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin. At the age of 85, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, three miles from where he was born in South London. The honor came just two years before his death and he was sitting in a wheelchair for the investiture.
The reason for the delay became clear in 2002. Confidential Foreign Office papers were released, including a 1956 report which had called for Chaplin not to be honored due to his "communist" sympathies and questionable "morals" - drawing attention to his two marriages to 16-year-old girls.
Britain's concern was that 1950s America, still in a strong anti-communist mood, would not approve and the whole British honors system would be brought into disrepute.
