Today is National Milk Day

The first day milk arrived by delivery in bottles was on January 11, 1878. National Milk Day commemorates this day and the delivery of this important staple beverage in America. Some trivia? The United States and Australia are the world’s largest exporters of milk and milk products. Throughout the world, there are more than 6 billion consumers of milk and milk products. Aside from cattle, many kinds of livestock provide milk used by humans for dairy products. These animals include buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, donkey, horse, reindeer and yak.

Today in History: Howard Chandler Christy born in 1873

Today in History: Howard Chandler Christy born in 1873

145 years ago today, 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 Scribners 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 paining “Signing the Constitution” that is displayed in the U.S. Capital. Christy died in New York in 1952.
