This Day in History, May 1st

Peering through the veil of ages this morning, today on May 1st, Senior Augustus Diocletian resigned from the imperial office and became the first Roman emperor to abdicate the position voluntarily but his pal Maximian didn’t find retirement so agreeable, England officially recognised Scotland as an independent state in exchange for a fat stack of cash, and George W. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished” in Iraq, plus famous birthdays and more!
