Today in History: Howard Chandler Christy born in 1873

On this day in 1873, the American artist and illustrator Howard Chandler Christy was born in Morgan County, Ohio. Christy studied art in New York at the Art Students League and later at the National Academy of Design under William Chase. Christy went to Cuba in 1898 to cover the Spanish-American War where he quickly gained a reputation as a wartime artist. His breakthrough came with the publication of “The Soldier’s Dream” in Scribner’s magazine. The girl he portrayed became known as “The Christy Girl” and was later featured in many other magazines as well as his famous World War I recruitment posters. After the war, Christy continued to paint, focusing on portraits and later on landscapes. The artist is perhaps best known for his 1940 historic painting “Signing the Constitution” that is displayed in the U.S. Capital. Christy died in New York in 1952.

Today in History: U.S. Marine Corps created in 1775

On this day in 1775, during the American Revolution, the Continental Congress passed a resolution forming two battalions of Continental Marines capable of fighting for independence both at sea and onshore.

In July 1798. the U.S. Marine Corps became a permanent military force under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Navy (formed in May 1798).
