Default Today in History....boat related

Today is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar when the English crushed the French Navy. It is the most important naval battle in History. It was in this battle that Lord Nelson ordered that signal officer to hoist his celebrated signal: ENGLAND EXPECTS THAT EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY.

So at 11am EST give a little thanks to Lord Nelson and the English that we're not speaking French.
