Today’s calendar, Sunday, September 3: The longstanding friendship between the United States and San Marino

It happened today

On September 3, 1777, during the American Revolutionary War, the Battle of Coach’s Bridge took place. According to legend, the flag with the stars and stripes was first flown on that occasion. The war ended six years later, on September 3, 1783, when London and the United States signed the Treaty of Paris. The new state attracted the sympathy and hopes of republicans and liberals from all over Europe. Including that small country that has always boasted of the title of “the oldest republic in the world”: San Marino, which was born on September 3, 301. Many years later, in 1861, when the White House arrived Abraham LincolnAmong the thousands of letters of good wishes was also the letter of the Regent of San Marino, who – in somewhat slurred English – also proposed an alliance with the United States. Lincoln was very impressed. He sent a letter that began thus: “Wonderful and good friends. Although the sphere of your dominion is small, your country is nonetheless one of the most honored in all history.” (Luigi Gaetani)
