Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Randolph outrage is the act of pulling someone else's nose in order to insult him. This was sometimes used as a way to provoke a challenge to a duel. The expression comes from an incident in 1833 when a dismissed lieutenant, Robert Beverly Randolph, tried to pull the nose of US President Andrew Jackson. The incident occurred during the president's visit to Randolph's hometown, Fredericksburg, Virginia. Jackson had earlier dismissed Randolph from the Navy for being in debt.Fredericksburg is home to several major commercial centers including Central Park (as of 2004, the second-largest mall on the East Coast) and Spotsylvania Towne Centre, located in Spotsylvania County adjacent to the city line. Major employers include the University of Mary Washington, Mary Washington Healthcare, and GEICO.show more
