Thursday's One Cup Of Java Challenge

Thursday's One Cup of Java Challenge: A little ancient history for today’s One Cup of Java Challenge. On this date in 49BC, the Roman civil war was ignited when Julius Caesar reentered Roman lands with a legion of troops. Specifically, he crossed over the river that was the northern boundary for Roman lands, and in the process gave us an idiom meaning “to go past a point of no return.” Your One Cup question this morning – what river did Julius Caesar cross 2057 years ago today?

Answer: Caesar “crossed the Rubicon.”
