March 18 | The 77th Day of the Year


Today is March 18, the seventy-seventh day of the year.  If you weren't aware, the nation's capitol, Washington D.C., is located directly on the 77th Meridian West, which is also known as the "American Meridian".  In history, the 77th day of the year has been quite memorable for the United States, especially when it comes to Hawaii.  It is also the date of the greatest "art heist" in U.S. history, as well as the day the "Gold Standard" was dropped, March 18, 1968.
