Sackville Street

FOUND IN:

This great thoroughfare on the north side of the Liffey in central Dublin is nowadays known as O'Connell Street. But in the days of the Ascendancy it was called Sackville Street, and as such it appears frequently in Rutherfurd's second Irish book, from the 'Ascendancy' chapter onwards. At one time it contained a column supporting a statue of Nelson, but this was blown up. For the time being, a tall spike has been placed in the middle of the street.

In the United States, the current 50-star flag was designed by then 17 year old Robert G. Heft as part of a school project. For his effort, he received a grade of B-. When his design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation, his teacher changed his grade to an A!
