September 7th Celebrated History
The United States earns a nickname that sticks. What’s in a name? In many cases, a lot. Sometimes a name has a significant meaning. In the case of the nickname Uncle Sam, the name originates with a meat packer named Samuel Wilson. During the War of 1812, Sam supplied barrels of beef to the Army. On the barrels, the letters “U.S.” were stamped – United States. However, soldiers began calling the supply “Uncle Sam’s.” Over time, the nickname came to refer to the U.S. government.
Later in that century, Uncle Sam began to have a recognizable face. The cartoonist Thomas Nast gradually created the character we recognize today.
George Ligowsky receives a patent for clay pigeons designed for trap shooting. He later invented a device for launching the targets into the air, too. He designed the targets (which weren’t made of clay, nor did they look like pigeons) to replace the glass targets trapshooters used at the time. Before glass targets, trapshooters released live pigeons from cages to shoot them.
Doctors give Edith Eleanor McLean a fighting chance at life when the premature baby is placed in an incubator. In the United States, she becomes the first infant treated in an incubator. However, hospitals and doctors took their time to grasp the importance of the invention. One German physician set out to change that by putting babies in incubators on display. Dr. Martin Couney displayed premature babies in an exhibit at the 1896 Berlin Exposition. Over time, as the technology saved more and more lives, they found their way into hospitals all over the world.
As the age of the motorcycle grew, the New York Motorcycle Club organized the Federation of American Motorcyclists (FAM). The FAM served several purposes including protecting the rights of motorcyclists, regulating racing, and promote the good roads movement. After 16 years, the organization folded.
The James A. Farley Post Office Building officially opens to the public. As the central post office in New York City, the building also bears a famous inscription. “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” The phrase is considered the unofficial motto of the United States Post Office.
