On October 7, 1960, the first episode of the one-hour television
drama “Route 66” airs on CBS. The program had a simple premise:
It followed two young men, Buz Murdock (George Maharis) and
Tod Stiles (Martin Milner), as they drove across the country in
an inherited Corvette (Chevrolet was one of the show’s sponsors),

doing odd jobs and looking for adventure. According to the show’s
creator and writer, Stirling Silliphant (best known for his acclaimed
“Naked City,” an earlier TV series), Buz and Tod were really on a

journey in search of themselves.

“Route 66″was different from every other show on television. For
one thing, it was shot on location all over the U.S. instead of in a
studio. By the time its run was up in 1964, the show’s cast and
crew had traveled from
Maine to Florida and from Los Angeles
to Toronto: In all, they taped 116 episodes in 25 states.

FLAG FLIES FOR FIRST TIME ON THIS DAY IN 1777

The American Stars and Stripes Flies for the First Time September 3, 1777

 

The American flag was flown in battle for the first time, during a Revolutionary
War
skirmish at Cooch’s Bridge, Delaware. Patriot General William Maxwell
ordered the stars and strips banner raised as a detachment of his infantry
and cavalry met an advance guard of British and Hessian troops. The rebels
were defeated and forced to retreat to General George Washington’s main
force near Brandywine Creek in Pennsylvania.

Three months before, on June 14, the Continental Congress adopted a
resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate
stripes red and white” and that “the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue
field, representing a new Constellation.” The national flag, which became
known as the “Stars and Stripes,” was based on the “Grand Union” flag,
a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of
13 red and white stripes. According to legend, Philadelphia seamstress
Betsy Ross designed the new canton for the Stars and Stripes, which
consisted of a circle of 13 stars and a blue background, at the request
of General George Washington. Historians have been unable to
conclusively prove or disprove this legend.

With the entrance of new states into the United States after independence,
new stripes and stars were added to represent new additions to the Union.

In 1818, however, Congress enacted a law stipulating that the 13 original
stripes be restored and that only stars be added to represent new states.

FIRST EDITION OF RECORDS BOOK IN 1955

How Guinness Beer Became The Authority On World Records - YouTube
Sir Hugh Eyre Campbell Beaver (May 4, 1890 – January 16, 1967)

 


On August 27, 1955, the first edition of “The Guinness Book of Records”
was published in Great Britain; it quickly proves to be a hit. Now known
as the “Guinness World Records” book, the annual publication features
a wide range of feats related to humans and animals.

The inspiration for the record book can be traced to November 1951,
when Sir Hugh (above) managing director of the Guinness Brewery
(founded in Dublin in 1759), was on a hunting trip in Ireland. After
failing to shoot a golden plover, Beaver and the members of his
hunting party debated whether the creature was Europe’s fastest
game bird but were unable to locate a book with the answer. He
decided to have one produced. The book was intended to be
given away  for free in pubs to promote the Guinness brand of
beer, however, it turned out to be so popular the company started
selling it that and it became a best-seller.
