July 26th, 1756: Bosom Bottles were advertised in the Boston Evening Post. They were small, beribboned glasses worn on stiff dresses of the period, filled with water, and containing flowers that served much the same function as corsages do today.

July 6th, 1776: The Declaration of Independence was published for the first time in the Pennsylvania Evening Post under the title "A Declaration by the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled."

A four-page paper, it devoted its entire front page and the first column of its second page to the Declaration.
