This Day (Bringing Home the Bacon Edition)

October 26th, 2012 by Brendan Wolfe · No Comments

On this day in 1676—after provoking a war with the Indians, rousing up an army of rebels against the governor, and burning JamestownNathaniel Bacon died suddenly of dysentery. The humorous picture above, from PerezHamilton.com, is not actually of Bacon, though. Sadly, there are no known images of him.
