Today in History for September 23rd: Birth of Augustus And Bruce Springsteen

Augustus (September 23, 63 BC – August 19, 14 AD).

"Instead of using the title of emperor, he preferred to be called "first citizen." Augustus was a wise ruler and knew the empire needed a better form of government." - From "Streams of Civilization: Earliest Times to the Discovery of the New World" By Mary Stanton and Albert Hyma.
