On this day in 1783 Gen. George Washington said farewell to his officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York.
In 1812 Peter Gaillard patented the power mower.
In 1945 the U.S. Senate approved American participation in the United Nations.
In 1980 the bodies of four American nuns slain in El Salvador two days earlier were unearthed. Five national guardsmen were later convicted of the murders.
And in 1991 Associated Press correspondent Terry Anderson was released after nearly seven years in captivity in Lebanon.
