July 13th, when Henry R. Schoolcraft discovered the source of the Mississippi River (1832), when the Battle of Bayou La Fourche took place in Louisiana (1863), when Guglielmo Marconi patented the radio (1898), when the draft law was passed (1923), when Frank Sinatra made his recording debut (1939), and when the first atom bomb exploded in New Mexico (1945). It’s Harrison Ford (1942) and Cameron Crowe’s (1957) birthdays, and American photographer Alfred Stieglitz’s death (1946). So hang on the river, go to Bayou La Fourche, listen to OZ, TUL, and WNO, watch Titanic (or better yet Fast Times at Ridgemont High), or ignore history with the following alternatives:
Dead Huey Long, Emma Boyce, Elizabeth Davas, Ian Hoch, Lindsay Mack, Anna Gaca, Jason Raymond, Lee Matalone, Phil Yiannopoulos, Joe Shriner, Chris Staudinger, Chef Anthony Scanio, Tierney Monaghan, Stacy Coco, Rob Ingraham,
