An anniversary

Capt. Alfred Dreyfus
On December 22, 1894, Capt. Alfred Dreyfus of the French Army was convicted of treason. Only after he served time on Devil's Island was he vindicated. The case, which was tainted by antisemitism, manufactured evidence, and unlawful command influence, split France for decades.
