1918 - In the year that Horatio J Goss was born, on November 11th, an armistice was signed between the Allies and Germany, ending the fighting on the Western Front in World War I.

His wife didn't know what happened, his fellow Justices had no idea, and his mistresses (he had several) said that they didn't know.
