Did You Know?Dakota' is a Native American (Sioux) word for 'friend.' (statesymbolsusa.org)

1861 - President James Buchanan signed the bill creating the Dakota Territory

1889 - On November 2, 1889, both North and South Dakota were admitted to the Union, becoming the 39th and 40th states.

Did You Know? America - Did you know? Inches, Teaspoons and a Ton of Bricks: It"s perfectly acceptable to use the metric system in the United States - Congress originally authorized it in 1866 and has repeated those sentiments in the years since - but tradition tells a whole other tale. Although the government now requires metric use in some public sectors and strongly encourages it in many private industries, the American public never really took to the system and largely dismissed it, making the United States the only industrialized nation where that"s the case. In an effort to move the matter along, Congress even passed a Metric Conversion Act of 1975 and set up a U.S. Metric Board to take care of all the planning for the desired transition, but they apparently didn"t empower the board with enough authority, and the American people essentially said, "meh" to adopting metric and continued on with their miles, pounds, ounces and all the rest. Similarly lackluster efforts since then have done little to get Americans to change their ways.

1800s Recipe 1800s Cooking Tips and Recipes

Cream of Celery Soup - This, perhaps is the daintiest of all the thicker cream soups. Take three heads of celerey, wash and cut into small pieces; cover with one quart of water. Cook slowly for a half hour; press through a colander, using just as much of the celery as possible. Put this in a double boiler with one quart of milk. Rub together three tablespoonfuls of butter and three of flour; add to the soup and cook until smooth and thick, add a teaspoonful and a half of salt and a dash of pepper.

1800s Etiquette 1800s Advice and Etiquette for Ladies

An Afternoon Tea - A card should be left for or sent to each lady receiving. No after call is necessary, as one"s appearance at the tea is a call. IF there is quite a crowd it is perfectly proper to depart without saying good-by to the hostess or the leadies receiving at any formal function. It is not customary to annouce guests at an afternoon tea. The ladies receiving shake hands with each guest.
