This Day in the History of Evil Beginnings

On this day in 1937, WWII (Pacific Theater) began with the incident at the Marco Polo Bridge in China. We always think it began December 7, 1941, but just as WWII (European Theater) began September 1, 1939, so too the war everywhere was going strong before 12/7/41 and our entry therein. Some people call the initial incident the Battle of Lugou Bridge.
