  • Francis Bret Harte, The Lost Galleon (1867) Zigzagging across the waters of the Pacific Ocean near the 180 º meridian, the International Date Line (IDL) is plotted on today’s charts and globes to indicate the boundary line between ‘today’ and ‘tomorrow’

  • Despite its name, however, the precise location of the International Date Line is not fixed by any international law, treaty or agreement

  • In order to resolve the circumnavigator’s paradox for future travellers, Oresme concluded his discussion of the imaginary journeys of Plato and Socrates in the Quaestiones supra speram with the observation: “From this it follows that if this [equatorial] zone were everywhere habitable, one ought to assign a definite place where a change of the name of the day would be made, for otherwise Socrates would have two names for the same day and the other [Plato] would have the same name for two days.” The discovery of the date line It was Antonio Pigafetta ( c

    001 -- Flight of the Valkyrie
    Features XB-70 flight history, images and technical diagrams.

  • Her long, graceful neck over their heads, air intakes a man could stand in (and 80' long -- longer than an SR-71!), and sleek lines left no doubt she was designed for speed

  • White and Cotton then proceeded to line up for landing on the 15, 000 foot runway at Edwards

  • Returning to North American's Palmdale facility at the end of this flight, the XB-70 was scheduled to go through a series of structural tests that would not return her to the flight line until February of 1965

  • Even more alarming, it hadn't rotated completely in line with the direction of travel, although it was close

  • being behind the centerline of the main strut, it was unlikely that the gear would level out, but hopefully the landing would at least cause the gear to finish swinging into the direction of travel, and the wingtip would still clear the ground, although the right side would be much lower than the left

    The 1562 Map of America by Diego Gutiérrez
    Western Hemisphere map; site includes historical information with scrolling and
    zooming map viewer.

  • During the next seventy years, a veritable avalanche of individual and state-supported efforts ensued to discover, explore, and understand the fullness of America, although initially the efforts were concentrated along its extensive coastlines

  • One of the noteworthy omissions in the Gutiérrez map of America is the absence of the famous line of demarcation

  • This hypothetical vertical line in the Atlantic Ocean served as the division between Spanish and Portuguese possessions in America

  • West of the line were Spain's areas of influence

  • In the Gutiérrez map the most prominent line of demarcation is not a vertical line but rather a parallel or horizontal line, representing the Tropic of Cancer at 23° 30' N

  • But the latitudinal line mentioned in the 1559 Treaty of Cateau Cambrésis and prominently shown on the Gutiérrez map was that of the Tropic of Cancer

  • But why was the famous vertical line of demarcation, that line separating Europe from America, not referred to in the treaty of Portugal's coat of arms Cateau Cambrésis and on the map? Diplomatic documents after the 1559 treaty state simply that Spain's sphere of influence is south of the Tropic of Cancer and west of the prime meridian

    Chapter 6: The War of 1812
    An extract from American Military History, a description of the military events
    with maps.

  • Dividing along sectional lines the House had voted for war on June 4, but the Senate approved only on June 18 and then by only six votes

  • In September I8I2, three months after the outbreak of war with the United States, Britain had no more than eleven ships of the line, thirty-four frigates, and about an equal number of smaller naval vessels in the western Atlantic

  • The capture of Montreal would cut the line of communications upon which the British defense of Upper Canada depended, and the fall of that province would then be inevitable

  • Although 1, 300 men were successfully ferried across the river under persistent British fire Prom a fortified battery north of town, less than half of them ever reached the American line on the heights

  • The men who remained lost all sense of discipline, and finally at the end of November the volunteers were ordered home and the Regulars were sent into winter quarters

  • The capture of Kingston, the only tenable site for a naval station on the Canadian side of Lake Ontario, would give the United States control of the lake and, by cutting the British lines of communications, frustrate enemy plans for operations in the west
