On #ThisDayinHistory 1820, Maine becomes the 23rd state: The addition was part of the Missouri Compromise between the North and the South: Administered as a province of Massachusetts since 1647, the entrance of Maine as a free state was agreed to by Southern senators in exchange for the entrance of Missouri as a slave state #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.15: In 1604, French explorer Samuel de Champlain visited the coast of Maine and claimed it as part of the French province of Acadia: However, French attempts to settle Maine were thwarted when British forces under Sir Samuel Argall destroyed a colony on Mount Desert Island in 1613 #AceHistoryDesk reports

Sir Ferdinando Gorges, a leading figure in the Plymouth Company, initiated British settlement in Maine after receiving a grant and royal charter, and upon Gorges’ death in 1647 the Massachusetts Bay Colony claimed jurisdiction: Gorges’ heirs disputed this claim until 1677, when Massachusetts agreed to purchase Gorges’ original proprietary rights………………As part of Massachusetts, Maine developed early fishing, lumbering, and shipbuilding industries and in 1820 was granted statehood……….In the 19th century, the promise of jobs in the timber industry lured many French Canadians to Maine from the Canadian province of Quebec, which borders the state to the west………..With 90 percent of Maine still covered by forests, Maine is known as the “Pine Tree State” and is the most sparsely populated state east of the Mississippi River. #Maine #Lighthouse #Moose #Lobster #PineTreeState #TBTT #OTD #AceFinanceNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1942, the Quartermaster Corps of the U.S. Army begins training dogs for the newly estab lished War Dog Program, or “K-9 Corps.” Well over a million dogs had served on both sides during World War I, carrying messages along the complex network of trenches and providing some measure of psychological comfort to the soldiers #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.14: The most famous dog to emerge from the war was Rin Tin Tin, an abandoned puppy found in France in 1918 and taken to the U.S., where he made his film debut in the 1922 silent film The Man from Hell’s River: As the first bona fide animal movie star, Rin Tin Tin made the little-known German Shepherd breed famous across the country #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8167 In the U.S., the practice of training dogs for military purposes was largely abandoned after World War I, but when the country entered World War II, the American Kennel Association and a group called Dogs for Defense began a movement to recruit dogs. Training began in March 1942, and that fall the QMC was given the task of training dogs for the U.S. Navy, Marines and Coast Guard as well:
Members of the K-9 Corps were trained for a total of 8 to 12 weeks……….After basic obedience training, they were sent through one of four specialised programs to prepare them for work as sentry dogs, scout or patrol dogs, messenger dogs or mine-detection dogs. In active combat duty, scout dogs proved especially essential by alerting patrols to the approach of the enemy and preventing surprise attacks………………The top canine hero of World War II was Chips who served with the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division. Trained as a sentry dog, Chips broke away from his handlers and attacked an enemy machine gun nest in Italy, forcing the entire crew to surrender……………..The wounded Chips was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star and the Purple Heart–all of which were later revoked due to an Army policy preventing official commendation of animals……………This particular dog is also famous, it’s Rin Tin Tin III! He’s notable for costarring with young Robert Blake in 1947’s The Return of Rin Tin Tin and for helping to train the K-9 corps. #RinTinTin #WWII #WWI #dogsofwar #theyregooddogsbrent #germanshepard #animalsatwar #history #k9veteransday #OTD #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1879, Albert Einstein is born in Ulm, Germany. His theories of special and general rela tivity drastically altered man’s view of the universe, and his work in particle and energy theory he lped make possible quantum mechanics and, ultimately, the atomic bomb. Einstein studied physics and mathemat ics at the Federal Polytechnic Academy in Zurich, Switzerland and in 1905 was awarded a Ph.D. from the Unive rsity of Zurich while working at the Swiss patent office in Bern #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.14: That year, he published five theoretical papers that were to have a profound effect on the development of modern physics. In the first of these, titled “On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light,” Einstein theorized that light is comprised of individual quanta (photons) that demonstrate particle-like properties while collectively behaving like a wave. This work would later earn him the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8169 Although the public was slow to embrace his revolutionary science, he was welcomed by Europe’s most eminent physicists and given multiple professorships. As a world-renowned public figure, he became increasingly political, taking up the cause of Zionism and speaking out against militarism and rearmament……….In his native Germany, this made him an unpopular figure, and after Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933, Einstein renounced his German citizenship and left the country. He later settled in the U.S., where he accepted a post at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. He would remain there for the rest of his life. In 1939, despite his lifelong pacifist beliefs, he agreed to write to President Franklin D. Roosevelt on behalf of a group of scientists who were concerned with American inaction in the field of atomic-weapons research. Like the other scientists, he feared sole German possession of such a weapon……………He played no role, however, in the Manhattan Project and later deplored the use of atomic bombs against Japan. He became an American citizen in 1940 and died in Princeton in 1955. #AlbertEinstein #Theory #PiDay #HBD #History #GreatMinds #😛 #OTD #AceHistoryNews
