WILLIAM BOOTH WAS BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1829. The founder of the Salvation Army experienced the misery of poverty firsthand when he apprenticed to a pawnbroker at the age of 13. Booth broke with conventional church religion and established a quasi-military religious organization with military uniforms and ranks. Recruiting from the poor, from converted criminals and from many other social outcasts, his organization grew rapidly and its influence spread from England to the U.S. and to other countries. Booth died in 1912 in England.

***

THE BEATLES BROKE UP ON THIS DAY IN 1970. In a press release accompanying promotional copies of his new solo album, Paul McCartney announced that he had no plans for working with The Beatles because of “personal differences, business differences, musical differences.” He stated that he didn’t know if the break was temporary or permanent, but the yearslong tension in the group coupled with the musicians’ solo work brought about the end of the band that year. McCartney sued to dissolve The Beatles in 1970, and the group was formally dissolved four years later.

***

HUGO GROTIUS WAS BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1583. The Dutch theologian, attorney, scholar and statesman’s beliefs profoundly influenced American thinking, especially with regard to the conscience of humanity. He died in Germany in 1645.
