                Did you know? 

 ... that today is Mississippi River Source Day? In 1832, Henry R. Schoolcraft discovered the source of the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca, Minnesota. He called it "Itasca," a word he made up from two Latin words, "verITAS," meaning truth, and 'CAput," meaning head. To Schoolcraft, Itasca meant "true head."
