It is the one record in baseball that will NEVER BE [IMHO] broken, especially considering the way pitching has changed. On June 15th, 1938, Johnny Vander Meer of the Cincinnati Reds pitched his second, consecutive no-hitter, against the Brooklyn DODGERS at Ebbets Field [the first one had been four days before, against the Boston Braves].

It was the  first night game ever played at Ebbets Field, but the performance by Vander Meer overshadowed that fact. For the first, and last time, a pitcher threw back to back no-hitters. no one had before. And no one has since.

George Washington, a delegate to the Continental Congress, who attended sessions wearing his militia uniform from Virginia, is chosen to command the gathering Patriot forces surrounding Boston after the battles of Lexington and concord.

Washington's selection has more to do with politics than military prowess. John Adams, a proponent of the appointment, wants to bind the South to what is not only a  [up to that point] largely Northern rising, but a particularly New England one. Since most of the troops facing the British are New Englanders, it was thought a southern Army Commander would help unify the Colonies. It worked. when Washington went north to assume command, Daniel Morgan and his Virginia riflemen, as well as other southern units, went with him.

Years of hard fighting [both with the British AND the Congress] lay ahead, before final victory. But the road to a free America started with Washington's appointment on this day in 1775.

SS Standartenfuehrer Paul Blobel was an engineer by trade. and a mass murderer by choice. Blobel had commanded one of Einsatgruppe "C's" Einsatzkommandos in 1941. He had, along with SS Gruppenfuehrer Frederick Jaeckeln organized and conducted the massacre of Kiev's Jews at Babui Yar, an 'action' where over 33,000 were murdered over a three day period.

But by June, 1943, the war wasn't going so well for the Fatherland [Operation CITADEL would drive that fact home in less than a month], and the "Faithful" Reichsfuehrer SS, Heinrich Himmler decided to hedge his bets. So Blobel was ordered to form a special SS Commando, 1005, comprised of Jewish prisoners, Eastern European and SS guards and other personnel, travel to the sites of mass shootings all over the Eastern Front, exhume the bodies, burn them, and remove all traces of the SS murders. That meant that Blobel would be traveling from the Baltic states to the Crimea, from Western Ukraine through eastern Ukraine, and through Beylorussia.

Commando 1005 developed a methodolgy for their mission. Bodies were disinterred, placed on pyres using train rails and ties, and burned, using what little fat they contained as fuel. And periodically, the slave laborers used in the operation were murdered and burned as well. And then they were replaced. and this circus of horrors stared on this date in 1943.
