|Reagan apt, 2011|
Oh, did you know that the Gipper's first trip away from Washington was to Chicago to attend a labor event? It was there that Mayor Jane Byrne gave Reagan a framed photograph of the apartment at 832 E. 57th Street.
Also, Wednesday is the 102nd anniversary of the birth "Dutch" Reagan.
The annual birthday party will occur at the birthplace in Tampico, Illinois.
I was there in 2011 for the centennial celebration.
