Everything was in place, the route was set, and the marchers were ready to go, except for one problem: There was no band to lead the parade.
When President Donald Trump’s supporters assaulted the U.S. Capitol, it was evident they were trying — with his encouragement — to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.
In April 1909, the New York Highlanders' first baseman Hal Chase was hospitalized with smallpox near the team’s spring training site in Georgia. The rest of the squad — which would be renamed the Yankees in 1913 — took an overnight train to Richmond, Virginia, where the Highlanders were scheduled to play an exhibition game against a minor league team before the regular season started.
