What historic event took place at Fraunces Tavern in New York City on December 4, 1783?

George Washington bade farewell to his officers following the Revolutionary War. Following his meeting with his officers, Washington resigned his commission as commander-in-chief and returned to Mount Vernon, intending to enjoy a much-deserved retirement. Fraunces Tavern is still open and houses a restaurant and a museum.

Heinhold’s First and Last Chance Saloon, in Oakland, California, was a hangout for which famous writer?

Jack London. Located on the Oakland waterfront, the bar was built in 1880 from the timbers of an old whaling ship. Sailors used to make this the last stop before going out to sea, and the first upon their return, hence the bar’s name. London used many of the stories he heard here in his books. For example, the saloon is mentioned 17 times in London’s novel “John Barleycorn”.

Which famous rebellion was planned in 1786 at Conkey’s Tavern in Pelham, Massachusetts?

Shays Rebellion. Daniel Shays, a decorated Revolutionary War veteran, organized about 800 Massachusetts farmers in rebellion against various farm policies which were bankrupting farmers. The rebellion was squelched the next year, but most of the men involved were ultimately pardoned.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
