On This Day in History...

1614 – In Virginia, Native American Pocahontas marries English colonist John Rolfe.

1792 – United States President George Washington exercises his authority to veto a bill, the first time this power is used in the United States.  He actually removed the parts of the apportionment bill that he found to be unconstitutional, re-writing it, and sent it back to the House of Representatives the same day, where it was signed into law on April 14 of that year.
