AW Anniversary

On this day in 1774, George III signed the Articles of War. They became the model for the American Articles enacted by the Continental Congress on June 30, 1775, and are the ancestor of the Uniform Code of Military Justice as well as the military justice laws currently in force in a number of countries.
