A bit behind----again.

February 27.

1864. The first Union prisoners arrive at Confederate Prison Camp Andersonville. It will quickly obtain a horrendous reputation. The Camp Commandant, Wirz, would become the only person tried and convicted of war crimes in the aftermath of the Civil War, and he would be hanged as a result.

1933. The Reichstag fire occurs in Berlin. The Nazi blame it on Communists, and it quickly leads to the beginning of the elimination of civil liberties and the accretion of martial power in the hands of Hitler and his cronies.

1974. People Magazine is published for the first time.
