“Espere por mim, Papai”, por Claude P. Dettloff, 1 de Outubro de 1940: uma fila de soldados marcha na Colúmbia Britânica no seu caminho a um trem que os aguarda enquanto Whitey Bernard, de cinco anos, se desprende com força da mão da sua mãe para alcançar seu pai. (H/t Jodi P)
John Kelly writes: A chargéd’affaires is what the United States sent to Texas. The first one was named Alcee La Branche, who grew up on his family’s plantation outside of New Orleans ... There were several other chargés until the last one was appointed in 1842. He was Isaac Van Zandt and he concentrated on getting Texas into the union. One of his descendants: acclaimed Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt.
