DYK and TIQ

Did you know…

… that today is Virgin Islands Transfer Day? Denmark transferred the Virgin Islands to the US in 1917 for $25 million (paid on January 17, 1917). The US agreed to buy the Virgin Islands on August 4, 1916. The US Virgin Islands are located about 50 miles east of Puerto Rico and eleven hundred miles southeast of Miami, Florida. The combined land area of the islands is roughly twice the size of Washington, DC.
