This Day In History
On July 19, 1799, the Rosetta Stone, a tablet with hieroglyphic translations into Greek, is found in Egypt.

Quote Of The Day
"Mr. Avery said it was written on the Rosetta Stone that when children disobeyed their parents, smoked cigarettes and made war on each other, the seasons would change: Jem and I were burdened with the guilt of contributing to the aberrations of nature, thereby causing unhappiness to our neighbors and discomfort to ourselves." Harper Lee
