Did you know, Thomas Jefferson was the driving force behind Congress founding the U.S Military Academy at West Point in 1802?

  3. That's a posh army school, yes? I am not sure where it is. Our Australian state of Tasmania has a West Point Casino and I am easily confused.

    1. Casino.Academy. Hmm. The casino sounds more fun:)
      Our West Point is in New York.
      It's a four year service academy geared for those planning on making the military a career.

  8. I believe I read that somewhere. It's certainly worth retelling, though.
