The legislation re- quired New England colonies to trade ex- clusively with Great Britain. An additional rule would come into effect banning colo- nists from fishing in the North Atlantic. - On March 28, 1814, the funeral of Guil- lotin, namesake of the infamous execution device, takes place outside of Paris. When first used, the crowds seemed to miss the gallows, but the guillotine quickly caught on. The device symbolized equality, as it was used on both commoners and the no- bility alike. - On March 27, 1912, in Washington, D.C., Helen Taft, wife of President William Taft, and the Viscountess Chinda, wife of the Japanese ambassador, plant two Yoshina cherry trees on the northern bank of the Potomac River. The event was held in cel- ebration of a gift by the Japanese govern- ment of 3,020 cherry trees to the United States. - On March 26, 1920, "This Side of Para- dise" is published, immediately launching 23-year-old F. Scott Fitzgerald to fame and fortune. While in Europe, Fitzgerald fin- ished his masterpiece "The Great Gatsby" (1925). He also published dozens of short stories in his lifetime.
