February 1st
The New York Times publishes an advertisement for Colgate’s Honey Soap: “This celebrated Toilet Soap, in such universal demand, is made from the choicest materials, is mild and emollient in its nature, fragrantly scented, and extremely beneficial in its action upon the skin.”

February 1st
J.S. Rock is admitted to the bar. He becomes the first Black lawyer to practice in the Supreme Court.

February 3rd
James Devlin (also known as Patrick Dimond and Patrick Sully), a three-time deserter of the Union Army, is put before a firing squad at Governor’s Island. Devlin was turned in by his estranged wife after he abandoned her to live with another woman. Missus Devlin watches her unfaithful husband’s execution, shaking with paroxysms of guilt, regret and grief.

February 4th
At noon, one hundred guns are fired in Manhattan’s City Hall Park in honor of the January 31st ratification by the New York State Legislature of the amendment to the United States Constitution abolishing slavery. Many passersby assume that peace had been proclaimed between the Union and the Confederacy, and that the salute is in honor of that event. For some time there is considerable joy and excitement – until the true reason is learned.

Copper premieres Sunday, June 23rd at 10/9c on BBC America.

    February 5th – Episcopal Bishop Benjamin Onderdonk is finally laid to rest when the writers discover that he had been suspended from the duties of Bishop in 1845 and died in 1861. The writers search for other religious leaders to defame.

  • Scott Weaver

    Watched the sneak peek. Interesting how the writers contrived five or six coincidences that allowed the villain to escape.

  • MochaGirl

    Let’s hope the writers abandon the Kevin-saves-Annie storyline!

    I’ve watched every
    episode of this show and I like most everything about it except the
    main character is how can I say it nicely -uh “really dumb”.

    The writing seems to make Kevin gullible, naive,
    and just plain dumb.

    Why? He’s fooled by everyone. Every episode I seem to say aloud “dumbest cop on TV”

    I won’t get involved with any other series on BBCA for fear of being hung out to dry. Copper was an entertaining escape but we may never know what happened to everybody. I hate writing my own ending.
