3rd day in a row involving food and tragedy.
The next time you use the phrase "slow as molasses", think about January 15, 1919 - the day of the Boston Molasses disaster!
On that day, a tank of molasses burst in Boston, sending molasses gushing through the streets at 35 mph! 21 people were killed, 150 injured.
I tried putting molasses on my face, but it just looked gross. I tried looking scared of the molasses, but...it just didn't work. But maybe you learned something! ;)
Thanks to my high school friend Karen for suggesting this day!
Now that I have a jar of molasses in my house...do you have any good recipes?
What is History With Hilary?
Every day, I take a self-portrait based on that day in history! The plan is to eventually make a book and/or calendar!
Select prints from my History With Hilary are for sale. Proceeds help to support the project, which is getting a little pricey! View them at Etsy!
I'm also accepting donations, including costumes, wigs, fabric, and props! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
