On July 4, 1918, before an enthusiastic crowd that included King George V, seen here , along with Queen Mary and Winston Churchill, then Minister of Munitions, and other dignitaries, the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy squads faced off in a nail biter of a Baseball game. All of England’s attention was focused on what became known as The King’s Game. King George V later sent the baseball to Woodrow Wilson and today that ball is in the Wilson House collection for visitors to see. An amazing day in America’s history. On our Independence Day, America’s pastime was on the world stage. #celebrate #America ‘s #history
