Welcome to Thursday 13! It's an easy meme - just make a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind of things. Facts, figures, photos, book lists, your thoughts - it's all good!
So join in the fun. Sign up with Mr. Linky after Today's Fact so we can find you and visit!
On December 13, 1937, as the Sino-Japanese War progressed, Japan overtooks the capital of China. General Matsui Iwane ordered the city destroyed. His troops butchered about 150,000 Chinese men and raped 20,000 women and girls, most of whom were killed afterward. Iwane was later hanged for war crimes. (Not the cheeriest of facts but maybe a necessary reminder of humanity.)
