Happy Birthday St. Louis

It was 246 years ago today the a a party of men led by a fourteen year old boy began clearing the land for what he envisioned as the city of St. Louis.  Okay, there's some quibbling about whether it was the 14th or 15th of February but when you're that old does one day really matter?   It's a fascinating story.  If you want to learn more I highly recommend the book A Boy for a Man''s Job.  I reviewed it here.
