Happy Birthday, Hindenburg – March 4, 1936

Today is the anniversary of the Hindenburg‘s first flight. After four years of construction the ship left its hangar on the afternoon of March 4, 1936.
Zeppelin Blimp LZ-129 left it's construction hangar for the first time at 3:08 on March 4, 1936 and a few minutes later lifted off and slowly cruised in the sky for three hours. The flight had originally been planned for that morning but the the departure was delayed to wait for better weather. LZ-129, did not carry a name on its maiden flight, the name Hindenburg was not added to the side of the Zeppelin until three weeks later.
After receiving its Airworthiness Certificate, the Hindenburg carried mail and passengers for the first time on March 23, 1936, by the Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei Company, the airline that would operate the ship in commercial service.
A little over a year later, the Hindenburg disaster on May 6, 1937 marked the end of the passenger airship era.

March 3, 1931 "The Star-Spangled Banner" becomes official U.S. National Ant

President Herbert Hoover signs a congressional act making “The Star-Spangled Banner” the official national anthem of the United States, today in 1931!
On September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key composed the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" after witnessing the massive overnight British bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Key, watched the siege while being detained on a British ship and penned the famous words after observing with awe that Fort McHenry's flag survived the 1,800-bomb assault.
After circulating as a handbill, the patriotic lyrics were published in a Baltimore newspaper on September 20, 1814. Key's lyrics were later set to the tune of "“To Anacreon in Heaven," a popular English song. Throughout the 19th century, "The Star-Spangled Banner" was regarded as the national anthem by U.S. armed forces, and became such after President Hoover signed it into law on March 3rd 1931.

Yellowstone Park Established March 1, 1872

Today, in 1872, President Grant signed the bill creating Yellowstone the nation's first national park. After journeying with Lewis and Clark to the Pacific, John Colter joined a party to explore the wilderness. In 1807, he explored part of the Yellowstone plateau and returned with fantastic stories of steaming geysers and bubbling cauldrons. Some doubters accused the mountain man of telling tall tales and jokingly dubbed the area "Colter’s Hell."
Before the Civil War, only a handful of trappers and hunters ventured into the area, and it remained largely a mystery. The key to Yellowstone's future as a national park, was the 1871 exploration by government geologist Ferdinand Hayden, who brought along pioneering photographer William Jackson, and brilliant landscape artist Thomas Moran, to make a visual record of the expedition. Their images provided proof of Yellowstone's wonders and caught the attention of the U.S. Congress.
Early in 1872, Congress moved to set aside some 2 million acres of public land straddling the future states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho as America's first national park. President Grant signed the bill into law on this day in 1872. The Yellowstone Act of 1872 designated the region as a public "pleasuring-ground," to be preserved "from injury or spoilation, of all timber, mineral deposits, natural curiosities, or wonders within." The Yellowstone Act set the stage for preserving areas of land for use as public parks. Congress went on to designate dozens of other national parks, and the idea spread to other nations around the world.
Another great "pleasuring ground" is The Bridgeview Bed & Breakfast. We have an amazing sight to see nestled along the Susquehanna River and Blue Mountains, directly beside the world famous Rockville Bridge. Our rooms are cozy and comfortable with a private bath in each, Wifi, delicious breakfasts and a fantastic view all add up to a pleasurable lodging experience.
