On September 6, 1781, Benedict Arnold, having established himself as a traitor to the colonies a year earlier with his betrayal at West Point, further cements his status as America's ultimate villain with the burning of New London, Connecticut. Arnold leads a squad of redcoats, with the help of some loyalists, into the town the Continental Army was using as a supply depot. His men drive off the small colonial garrison, loot the town and set fire to every building. The damages exceed half a million dollars, almost $8 million in today's money. On September 6, 1915, Little Willie, the prototype for the first modern military tank, rolls off the assembly line in England. Its ridiculously slow - no more than 2 mph on anything less than a flat surface - overheats easily and can't perform the primary task for which its developed; the ability to traverse trenches in the European battlefields. A second version, called Big Willie, will perform better and see action for the first time the following summer, laying the groundwork for the development of mechanized land warfare. Little Willie is now a museum piece: On September 6, 2016, Barbara Streisand extends her lead as the best selling female vocal artist of all time, when her album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, hits number one on the U.S. Pop Album charts. Its her 11th number one album, extending her lead in that category among female artists over Madonna with 8. It also moves her above Elvis Presley and ties her with Bruce Springsteen on the overall list.
